And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18 KJV).
And do not get drunk with wine, for that is dissipation, but be filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18 NASB).Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit (Ephesians 5:18 NIV).
• the Shekinah Glory fills the Tabernacle (Exodus 40:34–35), Solomon’s Temple (1 Kings 8:10–11), and millennial Temple (Ezekiel 43:5; 44:4; Haggai 2:7)
• the Holy Spirit lives inside (indwells) every believer (Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 6:19; Jude 19) and wants to fill His temple completely (Ephesians 5:18)
• the filling of the Spirit is found 14 times in the NT (Luke 1:15, 41, 67; 4:1; Acts 2:4; 4:8, 31; 6:3; 7:55; 9:17; 11:24; 13:9, 52; Ephesians 5:18)
• the filling of the Spirit is lost by sinning, restored by confession, and maintained by obedience(sin grieves the Holy Spirit, quenches His work, and prevents Him from controlling your life)
• the filling of the Spirit makes you a blessing to others (John 7:37–39):a single drink (indwelling) becomes rivers of running water (filling) flowing out of your soul in the form of blessings to others
• the filling of the Spirit produces a local church that glorifies God (Eph 5:18–21):exhortation in song, worship in song, frequent prayers of thanksgiving, and submission to church leaders
• in the Old Testament the filling of the Spirit was selective, temporary, and given to accomplish a specific purpose (task, rule, prophesy, ministry);today it is universal (for every believer), permanent (for a lifetime), and normal (a requirement for living the Christian life)
Old testament examples:to make the furnishings of the Tabernacle (Exodus 31:3; 35:31)to help rule the people (Deuteronomy 34:9)to prophesy (Micah 3:8; Luke 1:67)of Elizabeth and John the Baptist (Luke 1:15, 41)
• the filling ministry of the Holy Spirit began on the Day of Pentecost—on the first day of the Church Age (Acts 2:4):manifestation: 120 believers who were waiting in the upper room for the promised outpouring of the Holy Spirit began speaking in tongues (cf. Acts 1:8, 13, 15; 2:1–4, 15–18, 33)
