The Essential Spirit and the Economical Spirit (3)

Acts 1:8  But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
2:14  But Peter, standing with the eleven, lifted up his voice and spoke forth to them: Men of Judea, and all who are dwelling in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give ear to my words.

[Part 3 of 3]
Fifty days later, [after the Lord’s resurrection] on the day of Pentecost, something further happened. On that day the ascended Christ poured Himself out as the Spirit economically upon the disciples to be their power, authority, and uniform. A policeman in uniform has authority. No matter how powerful your car may be, you still must obey the policeman’s authority. His uniform is a sign of his authority. On the day of Pentecost, the one hundred and twenty were clothed with the economical Spirit as their heavenly uniform.

In Luke 24:49 the Lord told the disciples to wait until they were clothed with power from on high. When they were clothed with power on the day of Pentecost, Peter stood up to speak with authority and power, and the people were subdued. Peter could speak with authority because he was clothed with a heavenly uniform.

We praise the Lord for the breathing of the Spirit in John 20 and for the blowing of the Spirit in Acts 2. The breathing is for life, and the blowing is for move. Furthermore, the breathing gives us inner strength, and the blowing gives us outer authority. Through the breathing and the blowing we are fully equipped.

Prayer Confession Heavenly Father, we thank you for your word and revelation concerning the breathing of the Spirit and the blowing of the Spirit. We receive it with humility for it gives us inner strength and outer authority. Lord, we ask for the grace through the breathing and the blowing to be fully equipped in Jesus’ name, Amen
