God Tells Us in the Bible What He Is Like 神在聖經裡告訴我們祂像甚麽“(Acts 使徒行傳 2:1-4)

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.


Through the operation of the Holy Spirit, human soul could know incomprehensible God as He is in Himself. Judging from the Scriptures one would gather that His favourite similitude is fire. The God who had appeared to His people as fire throughout all their long history was now dwelling in them as fire. He had moved from the exterior to the interior of their lives. The settling of divine presence that had once blazed over the mercy seat now blazed on their foreheads as an external emblem of the fire that had invaded their natures.


Prayer: Abba Father, thank you that we can know you through your word and the Holy Spirit. We recognize our emptiness lacking the resources in ourselves to do what we could do or should do for the sake of Christ. Your gift of the Holy Spirit is often given so as to deal with human flesh leading to a dying to self. We only earn it by our seeking. Help us to follow the disciples’ example gathering together for prayer, waiting in obedience to be filled and relying totally on your work. Amen.
