A W Tozer on Pentecost and Poets

“When Pentecost comes again, it won’t just make us greater preachers, it will make us greater poets.”
– A. W. Tozer

I pray for the Spirit to release artistic gifts of all kinds amongst His people for the glory of God.

Pentecost – Acts 2:14-21

Then Peter stood up with the Eleven,
raised his voice and addressed the crowd:
‘Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem,
let me explain this to you;
listen carefully to what I say.
These people are not drunk, as you suppose.
It’s only nine in the morning!
No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
‘“In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.
Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.
I will show wonders in the heavens above
and signs on the earth below,
blood and fire and billows of smoke.
The sun will be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood
before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
And everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

– Acts 2:14-21

Come Holy Spirit

Pentecost – Acts 2:1-12

When the day of Pentecost came,
they were all together in one place.
Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven
and filled the whole house where they were sitting.
They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire
that separated and came to rest on each of them.
All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak in other tongues
as the Spirit enabled them.
Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews
from every nation under heaven.
When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment,
because each one heard their own language being spoken.
Utterly amazed, they asked:
‘Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans?
Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language?
Parthians, Medes and Elamites;
residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia,
Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene;
visitors from Rome (both Jews and converts to Judaism);
Cretans and Arabs –
we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!’
Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another,
‘What does this mean?’
– Acts 2:1-12

Come Holy Spirit

The greatest battleground in your life is between your ears. Scripture clearly states that as a man thinks, so is he. The Apostle Paul wrote that the way to transform your life and find God’s perfect will is to transform your thinking to God’s way. (Romans 12:1-2) Our right choices allow His Holy Spirit to transform our hearts and make us a child of God. This is what scripture calls “born again”.

It is clear that the battle between Good and Evil is in what we yield ourselves to listen to and believe. Scripture defines that the Lord and the devil speak to our inner minds and we must choose who is going to call the shots in our life. Paul writes of Abraham and tells what our God, who knows the end from the beginning, promised him. He told Abraham that he was a “father of…
