The Christian Science Monitor
It is recorded in The Acts of the Apostles that Jesus, on one occasion, after he had risen above all belief in the power of death, said to those assembled with him: "Ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you." And so, when "they were all with one accord in one place," on the day of Pentecost, "they were all filled with the Holy Ghost." Thereafter the disciples dispersed on their great mission, inspired as never before to heal the sick, rescue the sinning, and raise the dead. "The day of Pentecost" has ever since been associated with the gift of the Holy Ghost, which in the early days of the Christian church brought such spiritual illumination to the followers of Christ Jesus.
Right down through history, from that day, earnest men and women who have caught something of the meaning of the teachings of Jesus, have longed and prayed for the coming, in their own experience, of the Holy Ghost. Some of them have received a greater measure of spiritual understanding, but others have seemed to hope and pray in vain. And why? Possibly because, in the first place, they have had erroneous views about the Holy Ghost, and in the second, because of these wrong views they have mistaken the manner of its operation. Even to-day the subject to many is clothed in mystery. The very term, Holy Ghost, has to them something supernatural and mysterious about it. The majority are quite ignorant of its operation, and may even believe that it "descends" in almost fortuitous and material fashion, although they will predicate that "the gift" can only be bestowed on those who love good.
