The Holy Ghost played an important part on the day of Pentecost. We will be looking at Acts1 and 2 this week. Today we will look at what happened when the believers were filled with the Holy Ghost.
Filled with the Holy Ghost (2:1-4)
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Three questions (2:6-8, 12)
Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. 7 And they were all amazed and marveled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galileans? 8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?
The answer is found in an Old Testament prophet. Can anyone tell me which one? We will find out tomorrow.
