It's Divine Communication
And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language? — Acts 2:8
So as we read yesterday, the Spirit of God has now fallen on believers. But before you get too distracted by the sound of the wind and tongues of fire — notice what those present experienced as the Spirit fell. One person spoke, and those listening heard that single message in their hometown language. What's happening is the Spirit is doing his job. He's translating the message. And keep in mind there were travelers gathered from all over the country for the celebration of Pentecost. Normally, Jerusalem had a population of about 100,000 people. But during these celebrations, there was well over 1 million present. In other words, there were a lot of "hometown" languages.
This is a miracle of divine communication and understanding. The Spirit was revealing his splendor and advancing the message of truth.
What happened here is something that still happens today. While we often miss seeing it with our natural eyes and hearing it with our natural ears, the Spirit communicates all the time. He is giving aid to our communication and aiding listeners in their understanding.
Consider this today. Try inviting the Spirit to help, guide, and direct your communication today. Ask him to help you to communicate spiritual truth to those around you. Maybe even a specific person who needs to hear the truth. And in your imperfect communication, invite him to communicate the perfect message so that others will hear and respond. The Spirit is still translating spiritual truth so that people can hear and respond. And then get ready to watch the Spirit move like a great wind and great fire.
