“Without Limitation” by John Edwards

“Go ye into all the world
And preach the Gospel to every nation”

The Apostles heeded His Word
And went without hesitation

But until the Holy Ghost was given
The upper room remained their station

“Wait for the promise,” Jesus had told them
They were filled with anticipation

In one place for ten days they waited
All in good relation

With the women and Mary and His brothers
They continued in prayer for the duration

Matthias along with the eleven
As an Apostle received his registration

For one-hundred-and-twenty people
It was a time of preparation

Then when the day of Pentecost was fully come
The room was shaken with vibration

They all began to speak with other tongues
As the Spirit gave them dictation

When this was noised abroad
The city was filled with consternation

“How do we hear every man speaking our language
Is this mere intoxication?”

“These are not drunk as ye suppose”
Peter stood and gave his quotation

“This is that which was spoken by Joel”
This is empowerment for the ministration

“What must we do?”
The people asked in desperation

“Repent and be baptized and you’ll receive the Holy Spirit too
For the Promise is for you and your children for every generation”

In that way, in one day
Three-thousand became the Church’s population!

And today in contemporary society
We are still in the same situation

Its not by might, nor by power
Nor by human orchestration

It’s by the Spirit
When He comes in manifestation

That we will attract the harvest
Without limitation

It’s by letting go
Of our reputation

And allowing rather
The Spirit’s impartation

That we shall enjoy
The greater celebration

What do YOU think?
