ACTS 6:10

ACTS 6:10
And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the Spirit by which he spoke.

 

 

STEPHEN, APPOINTED AND ANOINTED, FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT, WAS SELECTED FOR EVANGELISM. SO GREAT WAS HIS EVANGELIZING THAT BELIEVERS MULTIPLIED. 

THE HELLENISTS EITHER WERE DRAWN TO, OR FILLED WITH HATRED, BECAUSE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT’S INFLUENCE THROUGH STEPHEN. MANY CAME TO BELIEVE BECAUSE OF STEPHEN’S ANOINTING. HOWEVER, HE WAS ALSO ACCUSED OF BLASPHEMING BECAUSE HE WAS PREACHING SALVATION THROUGH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA HA-MASHIACH.

WHEN WE, AS BELIEVERS, ARE TRULY OVERFLOWING WITH HOLY SPIRIT PRESENCE, POWER, AND ANOINTING, WE EITHER WIN SOULS OVER, OR ARE SUCH A THREAT TO THE ENEMY THAT WE WILL SUFFER PERSECUTION. WE ARE CALLED TO BE READY ALWAYS TO GIVE AN ANSWER FOR THE REASON FOR OUR FAITH (I PETER 3:15); WE ARE EQUALLY CALLED TO BE READY TO SUFFER FOR HIS NAME (JAMES 1:2-4).
