The Effect of the Spirit

These people who received the Holy Spirit did not shake or roll on the ground.  They did not speak in languages that could not be understood.  They also did not become perfect (e.g., the example of King Saul who received the Spirit, but because of his disobedience to God, the Spirit was taken away from him).

As we saw earlier, the Spirit influenced these men and women to speak the word of God.  And, as we saw above, the Spirit influenced them to lead, to judge, to comfort, to have physical power to accomplish God's will (e.g., the example of Sampson in Judges 14), to change their lives for the better, etc.
