Text: Acts 2: 1. And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
A divine encounter is the Almightiness of God, invading the helplessness of man.
It is an unexpected divine visitation.
It is the day divinity decided to visit humanity.
There are days in a man’s life but there’s always a memorable day.
When God encounters a man, you don’t just know, you see it.
The evidence of God’s encounter in the life of a man is undeniable.
Divine Encounter is a real experience, a real communion with the Lord.
Encounters set us on a high course for the kingdom propagation.
A man with the encounter and revelation of God has nothing to do with a man with fear and arguments.
One encounter with the Lord can change your life forever.
It reveals the mind of God for you.
It gives your life a structure and a meaning.
A divine encounter terminates affliction and all sorts of evil.
There is nothing that makes a man anything, except for an encounter with God.

An encounter makes people count on earth.
It also takes an encounter to counter the agenda of the enemy.
Saul a persecutor of the church, encountered Jesus on his way to Damascus and his name was changed to Paul. And from the day of his encounter until his death, he never stopped preaching Christ in words and in power.
God can use anything to encounter people and bring them to salvation.
Charles Spurgeon tells of a man who once went to a chapel to listen to the singing, but he didn’t want to hear the preaching. So as soon as the pastor began speaking, the man put his fingers in his ears. But after a while, an insect landed on his face, and so he had to take one finger out of his ear to brush it off. Just as he did, the pastor said, “He that has ears to hear, let him hear.” The man listened, and God met him at that point to his soul’s conversion.
We must desire the encounter of God’s Fire and Spirit.
At the upper room as the believers waited in Acts 2, like a mighty rushing wind the fire of God fell and just with that one encounter, the 120 believers in the room preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and power all over the world.
Beloved, pray for an encounter with the Lord.
An encounter that will grow your faith and align you to purpose.
As you thirst for such a divine visitation, I join faith with you, and I call it done in Jesus’ name.
