Pentecost Means A Person


Pentecost then means a Person, moreover a Holy Person not tongues, nor miracles, and, in some respects, not even power. These are only outward evidences, and must always be subordinate to and demonstrative of that fact. They are the results of filling and not the filling itself, the gifts and not the Giver.
