The Tongue of Fire

John 14:16 - Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit before he departs... "If you love Me, you will keep My commandment" .... "Love one another as I have loved you", and I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Advocate to be with you forever. 

Acts 2:2-4 says, “And suddenly a sound came from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributed and resting on each one of them and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak as the Spirit gave them utterance.” It was the Day of Pentecost

Acts 19:6 When Paul placed his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they were baptized in the Lord. From that moment on, they were praising God and talking about God’s actions...while they spoke in their own language, they who heard it was in their own.

Here they were all speaking in the language known to them,(Not unknown) and they that heard them understood the message and continued the conversation in the language they knew and all understood each other well. Have you wondered how the animals on land, and birds in the air communicate. Do they proclaim in Tongues or is it just a higher level of communication we are unaware of.

The Painter

He brought in his brush and can of paints to sketch what was in mind. Strokes and more to emphasize the depth of his feelings, and finally it was done.

He called in his Master for a critical evaluation of his work. The Master suggested that since it was Plebeian art, it was best to have comments from the townsmen. Place it at the street corner with a note, was the instruction given to him.  

The next morning he carried his work and placed it at the street corner as advised, with a bottle of black paint, and a Note that read, "Please dot a spot you think that needs correction."

Came evening and he was all excited to see the corrections recommended. On reaching the corner he found his Painting was dabbled in dots of black, that left no trace of the original. Dismayed and distraught, he carried his work home and informed his Master.

After seeing the painting the Master suggested he make another similar. When done, place it on the same street corner, with a multitude of colours and a Note that read. "If you can better this, then choose the colour and dab it on the spot to enhance the value of this work."

Evening came and when he visited the corner, found it as left. No corrections, no nothing.

Disappointed one more time, he carried it and all the paraphernalia home and informed the Master.

The Master smiled and told the painter, "it is easy for all to criticize and blacken your creation. But ask anyone to identify the recourse, and none will, as none can. This is the ultimate truth."

The Moral is: You need to follow your heart, and not the advice of others who have little knowledge of the subject other than comment & criticize
