“I had not said the prayers of salvation when I started blasting in tongues, and immediately the fire spread to over 50 Teenagers packed under that roof. They all started speaking in tongues.”
‘While Peter was speaking, the Holy Spirit cascaded over all those listening to his message. The Jewish brothers who had accompanied Peter were astounded that the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out on people who weren’t Jews, for they heard them speaking in supernaturally given languages and passionately praising God. Peter said, “How could anyone object to these people being baptized? For they have received the Holy Spirit just as we have.”
Many years ago, I learned that Reinhard Bonnke would gather over 5000 pastors under a roof and minister the baptism of the Holy Spirit to them. I also listened to a man of God who said he saw a visible manifestation of the Spirit in the form of a big bird in one of Reinhard Bonnke meetings. At the time, I knew almost nothing about how to walk in the manifestations of the Holy Spirit. It appeared like a mirage to me back then.
I would wonder to myself, how can one man fill thousands of people with the Holy Ghost? I wondered if there were requirements needed. I would say to myself, “Reinhard Bonnke is a child of God like me, and I can walk in this reality.” Although these dimensions were alien to me, I sincerely desired to walk in them. I knew that to be the witness Christ has called me to be; I would need to walk in this supernatural dimension.
I met Bro Gbenga Samuel-Wemimo in 2020, and I joined the School of the Supernatural that he runs online. After school, I practiced what I had learned and started getting results. I started seeing the manifestations of the Spirit and growing therein. At this time, walking in the manifestations of the Spirit was no longer an uphill task to me. For supernatural dimensions I was yet to experience, I understood that I had to grow in grace.
However, I desired the day I would teach God’s Word and get thousands, millions, and billions of people filled with the Holy Ghost.
One day, I was invited to teach tens of Teenagers on “Christ the Power of God.” I expounded on 1 John 4:17 to show the Teenagers their current reality in Christ and delved into the story of creation, the death and resurrection of Jesus, and the release of the Holy Spirit. I was to lead them in the prayers of salvation and get them filled in the Holy Ghost — my very first of a crowd; I was used to ministering the baptism of the Holy Spirit to just one person, at most, two persons. I had not said the prayers of salvation when I started blasting in tongues, and immediately the fire spread to over 50 Teenagers packed under that roof. They all started speaking in tongues. The Holy Spirit told me about some cases ahead, and I confirmed if the Holy Spirit had resolved the cases. The Holy Spirit solved them without me having to pray for them directly; the Zoe at work in them did.
I knew I had unlocked a new level of grace, and I cannot wait to get Billions of people filled in the Spirit in one meeting.
PS: The manifestation of the Spirit is not for pastors alone; it is for every believer. Wherever you find yourself including your workplace, you can share Christ and replicate this move of the Spirit. Walk with the Holy Spirit and manifest Christ everywhere you go. The gospel is easy to teach when you walk in power.
