Tongues of Fire

"Tongues of Fire"
16 x 20 in.

This painting is a rendering of the baptism of the Holy Spirit from Acts 2:1-4.  As the disciples were in unity together, the Holy Spirit descended on them as "tongues of fire" and they were filled with the anointing and power of God.

It is also interesting to note that in Matthew 3:11, John the Baptist referred to One who was coming that would baptize with the Holy Spirit and fire. That One he spoke of is Jesus Christ.  As His followers seek after Him in faith and obedience, He fills them with the Holy Spirit and with the fire of His Presence in their lives.
