“While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God”(Acts 10:44, 46 NKJV). This is speaking of the household of Cornelius.
Think of it: a private Pentecost falling upon an entire household with everybody there lifted into the heavens. It was miraculous! The praises were thrilling as all the relatives and children were getting saved and filled with God’s Holy Spirit. Meanwhile, here we sit in the day of the outpoured Holy Ghost, where we often see little or no evidence of his working and presence. Many of our Christian homes are now under the control of the spirit of the world rather than the Spirit of God.
We need to take back the spiritual authority in our homes. If a Christian husband and wife are not in total unity, flowing together in the Spirit and love of Jesus, there is extreme danger ahead. One or both are not walking in the Spirit. When both are seeking God in private prayer and devotion to God, the Spirit works his wonders. Where the Holy Spirit abides, there is rest, peace, unity, unspeakable joy and victory over the spirit of this world.
God is doing something new in the land right now. The Holy Ghost is separating a people unto the Lord. To God’s people, being successful is not nearly as important as hearing from him. Houses, land, furniture, cars and clothes have lost their charm to a people now passionately in love with the Lord of glory. The Holy Ghost has come to reveal Christ as the Savior of our homes!
I have seen into the spiritual world, and I see demons fleeing. I see powers of darkness trembling because God’s true church, once a slumbering giant, has been provoked by the Holy Ghost to shake itself, rise and claim its place of power and authority.
Entire families, churches and ministries are being turned upside down. God is saying, “Get serious about spiritual things, and I will meet your every need!” The Father is doing great things all around the world, and we can be a partaker of his mighty blessing.
