Terminal illnesses cured, future events foretold, food supernaturally multiplied, the demonized delivered, mass conversions of people in one day; the kind of stuff that we read about in the Bible, right? Right, except that all of these things are happening in our world—TODAY!
It has been well-documented that the church of Jesus Christ is currently experiencing a world-wide out-pouring of the Holy Spirit, manifest in massive conversions and phenomena which could only be described properly with the biblical terms signs and wonders, the likes of which has not been seen since the first century of its existence. Most Christians welcome this renewed display of God’s grace with gratitude, but also with a myriad of questions. The first outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost gendered the question, “What does this mean?” (Acts 2:12). Believers today are also asking “Why now?”
Like a mystery thriller, Neptune sifts through the Bible, theology, and history, to discover clues as to where the Church through fear and ignorance neglected the Holy Spirit and how, by the grace of God, Christians are increasingly embracing The Promise of the Spirit. Substantial enough to engage a scholar, yet accessible for the earnest Christian, you will find in these pages encouragement and insight into how you can participate in the greatest movement of God’s Spirit the world has ever seen.
