The secrets of the spirit of wisdom: The Holy Spirit came on them as he had come on us at the beginning

The secrets of the spirit of wisdom: The Holy Spirit came on them as he had come on us at the beginning, Acts 11:15 The secrets of the spirit of wisdom: The Holy Spirit came on them as he had come on us at the beginning, Acts 11:15

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Holy Trinity, and is also the spiritual force that accompanies the disciples in their task of evangelizing the world, it is fundamentally a spirit of wisdom, that gives them the intelligence to teach and the spiritual discernment to understand the secrets of what is hidden, one of the skills that those who are filled with the spirit receive is the ability to "read thoughts" as the bible explains, the holy spirit opens our mind's eye, the third eye: "But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come." John 16:13.
The book of the acts of the apostles tells us how the holy spirit accompanies the conversion of the first pagans. After the conversion of Paul and the Centurion Cornelius, Peter receives a vision, which tells him that what man eats is not impure, but what comes out of his mouth (Acts 11:5-9). In essence, the vision tells Peter that the Kingdom of Heaven surpasses the law of Moses, and that those who follow the testimony of Christ cannot obey the ancient precepts.
It is then that the apostle Peter guided by the holy spirit, receives by an inner revelation of the spirit of wisdom what he must do, bring the gift of conversion to uncircumcised people:
"Right then three men who had been sent to me from Caesarea stopped at the house where I was staying. The Spirit told me to have no hesitation about going with them. These six brothers also went with me, and we entered the man's house. He told us how he had seen an angel appear in his house and say, ´Send to Joppa for Simon who is called Peter. He will bring you a message through which you and all your household will be saved.´
´As I began to speak, the Holy Spirit came on them as he had come on us at the beginning. Then I remembered what the Lord had said: ´John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.´" Acts 11:11-16.
It is by the action of the Holy Spirit that the Kingdom of Heaven is more than a philosophy, the Kingdom is the manifestation of the supernatural of God in the physical world.
