You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you. – Acts 1:8
God gave His wonderful power of the Holy Spirit to make us powerful witnesses. While the disciples were praying and waiting, a sound like the rushing wind came from heaven and filled the whole house. They saw something that looked like tongues of fire resting above each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues, in words the Holy Spirit inspired them to speak (Acts 2:1-4).
Jesus reveals sin and iniquity in our lives before He baptizes us with the Holy Spirit. For if our heart is not first cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit cannot come into our lives.
The powerful anointing
When you are baptized in the Holy Spirit, the Divine Trinity will come in you as an inflamed dynamite and set you on fire. When you are in Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit, you will never lose this powerful anointing. This anointing will be on you, over you and in you forever.
Once you are baptized in the Holy Spirit, you will never be the same again for He comes to dwell in you forever.
This brings me to the next point. In Acts 5:1-11 we read the story of Ananias and Sapphira. They sold some of their property and brought it to the apostles. However, they lied about the earnings. Peter spoke to them about this and said: ‘How is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit?’ Both had to pay for this with their lives. The Holy Spirit does not only give us strength, but He also reveals hidden sinful thoughts and motives.
