“When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord suddenly took Philip away, and the eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way rejoicing.”
Using the same phrase as was often used in the gospels, “came up out of the water”, Luke again shows the power of what happens next, “the Spirit…”
Many have decided they know exactly what happened here and I have even heard some say that they expect by the time Christ comes back then we will all be able to move geographically in the power of the Spirit. Although I would definitely be interested in this as it would not only help with the pressure of time but it would also cut drastically my flight costs, I am not so sure. In fact I am so not so sure I don’t want to focus on the fact that as with Elijah, Philip was here one minute and gone the next.
What I want to focus on is this: when we concentrate on doing what we can do ie gospel presentation and the baptising of disciples then the Spirit will be and do what only He can.
If we want the move of the Spirit then lift Jesus high!
