MESSAGE: DCLM Daily Manna 23 August 2019
There were very few disciples before the day of Pentecost and little exploit was done. But on the day of Pentecost, the spirit came down and baptized the one hundred and twenty in the upper room. Thus, there was great expansion in the gospel work and nations were reached with the salvation message.
Today: DCLM Daily Manna 23 August 2019
Moses was the only person having the Spirit of God before God instructed him to extend it to the seventy elders. He seemed to be the only one carrying the burden of the people. The work was much on him. He complained to God and God came with a divine solution. He was instructed to gather seventy elders among the people together by the tabernacle. They were to assist him in the daily administration of the people. Without the enduement of the Spirit of God, they would not be able to do the work effectively. The elders were assembled together by the tabernacle of God. God came down in a cloud and took of the spirit that was upon Moses and gave it unto the seventy elders. When the Spirit came upon them, they prophesied. Two of them, Eldad and Medad, who did not join the others at the tabernacle also prophesied. They were also filled with the Spirit of God.
If a man does not have the Holy Spirit in his life, he is not equipped to serve or lead God’s people. Such could be an hindrance instead of a blessing. The operation of the Spirit is not limited to a particular geographical location or boundary. Even the two men who were not with the other leaders were also filled with the Spirit of God. We should be like Moses who will want everyone to receive the Spirit of God so as to be able to minister.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When you are filled with His Spirit, you will do more exploits for Him.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Psalm 19-23
