Just curious...was this an adequate answer? Do you understand now that you've been using the absence of chimaera to prove a flawed theory...and not valid, biblical arguments?No. That's in the gospels more than once. It represents one of the greatest boons a believer has being filled with the Spirit with the gifts Paul describes. These gifts, the Cessationist claims, are not for today, and I mention them because, since arrests are obviously for today, the gifts proved necessary, indeed valid and effective, for the arrested.
I think I'm beginning to understand your claim, now. Correct me if I'm wrong:
You're claiming that, because, when the Holy Spirit came both visibly and audibly on the day of Pentecost, He set the standard for His coming, and no experience of Him is valid unless there are sounds like rushing, mighty winds, and individual flames over folks' head?
Is that right? You're looking for visible manifestations?
Can I help you understand why that is so weird a claim, and absolutely unbiblical?
The analogous coming of the Holy Spirit in the OT happened when the Spirit of God lit the fires on the altars of the Temple, and entered the Holy of Holies. You had actual fires, and sounds and...get this...the "priests could not stand to minister." You had the same drunken behavior evident on the Day of Pentecost after the Resurrection.
Now, understand this: NO ONE in the days of Solomon ever claimed that NO sacrifice was ever valid unless it was lit by God, and not by matches. That fire from heaven happened once then...and then, once again with Elijah on Mt. Carmel a few hundred years later. The priests, fortunately, recovered and stood and ministered. Your expectations are artificially ginned up to unbiblical levels.
On the other hand, the history of the church is rife with the Holy Spirit appearing over venues, for example at Azusa street, as a rainbow drawing folks from the highways to see what was happening. It has often happened that folks could not "stand to minister" when the Holy Spirit came upon them. The press coined the term "holy rollers" to describe what was happening in the late nineteenth century during the famous holiness tent revivals in Kansas.
