Topic: PROOF THAT YOU HAVE RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT

THEME SCRIPTURE:
Acts 19:6-7 (KJV)
[6] And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. [7] And all the men were about twelve.

MESSAGE:
Our theme Scripture is a reference to the 12 men Apostle Paul met in Ephesus. After Apostle Paul had expounded the gospel of Jesus Christ to them and baptized them in water, he administered the Holy Spirit to them by laying his hands on them.

These 12 men spoke in tongues and even prophesied when they received the Holy Spirit. You see, the Holy Spirit is a giver, and so, once you receive Him into your spirit, He will come in and give you gifts. The number one gift the Holy Spirit always gives is the gift of speaking in tongues. This is to tell you that God cherishes our communion with Him more than anything, and He prioritizes that above everything else.

A similar experience is recorded during Apostle Peter’s visit to the household of Cornelius. In this particular encounter, the Holy Spirit came on the people while Apostle Peter was speaking. The Jews who accompanied Apostle Peter to the house of Cornelius were astonished to know that the Gentiles had also receive the Holy Spirit; for they heard the Gentiles speak with tongues and magnify God (Acts 10:44-46).

Speaking in tongues is always the number one proof that one has received the Holy Spirit! There’s no gainsaying about that. Do you have an alternative proof other than speaking in tongues?
