“And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord’s Christ” (Luke 2:26). It was because of the revelation by the Holy Ghost that Simeon recognized the child to be “the Lord’s Christ.” We fail to recognize Him, His ways, His will, unless filled with the Spirit.

“Ye shall receive the power of the Holy Ghost coming upon you” (Acts 1:8). This is the power of a person, it is not your power but His power – it is not abstract power under your control, but it is a person whose presence with you is necessary to your possessing and retaining the power.

“They were all filled with the Holy Ghost… And of the rest durst no man join himself to them” (Acts). The power of the Holy Ghost is a church or a mission is the only thing that can keep it pure. If the Holy Ghost is in the church, the world will not have to be kept out; it will only be too glad to get away.
