I AM the Heavenly Father. After Jesus' death and resurrection, He sent My Promise of the Holy Spirit upon the early church. They were to be baptized in the Holy Spirit, and endued with power from on high. (Luke 24:49.) This power was to help them witness in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the end of the earth. (Acts 1:8.) My Promise was not only for a select few, but for everybody who desires to receive it. Believe Me, you want My Promise.
The Holy Spirit will help you speak with other tongues. (Acts 2:4.) When the Holy Spirit is poured out, your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. (Acts 2:17.) When you are filled with the Holy Spirit, you will speak the word of God with great boldness. (Acts 4:31.) When you are empowered by the Holy Spirit, many signs and wonders will be done among the people. (Acts 5:12.) Sick people, and those who are tormented by unclean spirits, will be healed for Our glory. (Acts 5:16.)
The early church walked in this great power because they received My Promise. This Promise is available to you right now. How much more will I give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Me! (Luke 11:13.)
49 Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.”
8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams.
31 And when they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they spoke the word of God with boldness.
12 And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s Porch.
16 Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.
13 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!
