There was a man in the Bible named Stephen. He wasn’t one of the famous disciples, nor was he an Apostle, yet he personified everything that Lord Jesus taught, lived, and passed on to us. A regular guy, an obedient servant ministering in the name of Jesus. Undeniably under the influence and direction of the Holy Spirit. The Bible says, “Stephen, a man full of God’s grace and power, performed amazing miracles and signs among the people.”
Although when the religious leaders who did not have the baptism of the Holy Spirit, saw the evidence in his life, their jealousy and religious superiority took hold of them to denounce him. However the Word says, “None of them could stand against the wisdom and the Spirit with which Stephen spoke.”
Stephen was frustrated with them and declared, “You stubborn people! You are heathen at heart and deaf to the truth. Must you forever resist the Holy Spirit? That’s what your ancestors did, and so do you!”
Since they could not stop him or the Holy Spirit who dwelt within, they took and killed him. As he was dying the Bible says, “But Stephen, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed steadily into heaven and saw the glory of God, and he saw Jesus standing in the place of honor at God’s right hand. And he told them, “Look, I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing in the place of honor at God’s right hand!” Then he fell to his knees, shouting, “Lord, don’t charge them with this sin!” And with that, he died.” (Acts 7)
The Holy Spirit blessed this ordinary gentleman, filled this man with Himself, enabling him to do mighty works for God and the ordinary people in need, just like Jesus did. He was open to see spiritual visions as foretold in the Bible. The Holy Spirit did it for Stephen and He will do it for you.
