HOLY SPIRIT SET UPS

THE APOSTLE PHILLIP WAS WITH THE OTHER BELIEVERS PREACHING AND TEACHING IN SAMARIA THE WORDS OF THE LORD JESUS, WHEN AN ANGEL OF THE LORD DIRECTED HIM SOUTH TO THE ROAD THAT GOES FROM JERUSALEM TO GAZA. THERE HE ENCOUNTERED AN ETHIOPIAN, A EUNUCH, A COURT OFFICIAL OF CANDACE, QUEEN OF THE ETHIOPIANS, HE WAS PONDERING THE WRITINGS OF ISAIAH. THE HOLY SPIRIT DIRECTED PHILLIP TO TO JOIN HIM.HE ASKED THE EUNUCH IF HE UNDERSTOOD WHAT HE WAS READING. “HOW CAN I UNLESS SOMEONE GUIDES ME” . PHILLIP SAT WITH HIM IN HIS CHARIOT AND BEGAN TO EXPLAIN THE SCRIPTURES THE EUNUCH WAS READING WHICH WERE ABOUT THE MESSIAH. BEGINNING WITH THAT SCRIPTURE HE SHARED THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT JESUS. AS SOON AS THEY CAME TO SOME WATER, THE EUNUCH SAID “WHAT PREVENTS ME FROM BEING BAPTIZED ?” BOTH PHILLIP AND THE EUNUCH WENT INTO THE WATER AND HE BAPTIZED HIM.

THE HOLY SPIRIT SET THIS MEETING UP. IT WAS NOT BY CHANCE. IN “ANTIQUITIES” BY JOSEPHUS WE READ ABOUT A REVIVAL IN THE FIRST CENTURY IN ETHIOPIA DURING THE REIGN OF CANDACE. THE HOLY SPIRIT POSITIONED PHILLIP AND THE EUNUCH IN ORDER TO FULFILL GOD’S WILL. IN YOUR LIFE THERE HAVE BEEN MANY HOLY GHOST SET UPS WHETHER YOU WERE SENT OR HELP WAS SENT TO YOU.

The Scriptural references come from Acts 8:26-40
