Manifestations Of The Holy Spirit

Acts 2: 2-4

And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind and it filled the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto then cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

The coming of the Holy Spirit fulfills the promise made by Jesus at His ascension (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8) that all who possessed the Holy Ghost would have power to witness Christ the world over. The coming and manifestation of the Holy Spirit is another example of promises kept by God. The coming of the Holy Spirit fulfills the prophecy of Joel 2:28-29 when God's Spirit would be poured "out on all flesh."
Notice the manifestations made when the Holy Spirit came; first, it was on the day of Pentecost which was the harvest festival where the firstfruits of the grain harvest was presented to God (Leviticus 23:17), second, the people were in one place and on one accord (v. 1). Lastly, the manifestation of the Holy Spirit were done in three distinct ways, audible, visible and in speech. The Audible manifestation was the sound of a rushing mighty wind, the visible manifestation was cloven tongues of fire and the speech manifestation was that as the 120 disciples were being filled with the Holy Spirit they began to speak in other tongues as there were many other nations represented.
Upon closer examination of the coming Holy Spirit on Pentecost and parallel these verses to Acts 1:8 which represents the threefold promise of Christ that believers will have "power", they will "witness" and it will occur in "all the world." Another significant fact in Pentecost and the coming of the Holy Spirit is that Pentecost represented a grain harvest and for the church it symbolizes the beginning of God's soul harvesting throughout the world.
The Day of Pentecost was a great display of God's power.
