To obtain the “power,” the commandment given to us by Jesus: “Tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem (your present city) until ye be endued with power from on high” (Luke 24:49) must be obeyed.

 Many Christians claim the experience of Acts 2:4, but they have not attained the experience provided for in Luke 24:49. The progress so far is fine, but the deceiver still has many of us lulled to sleep, deluded, and self-satisfied, far from the goal Jesus intended for us to reach.

 After Jesus said, “I send the promise of the Father upon you” He also told them, “Tarry . . . until ye be endued with power.”

 Where there is a lack of perfection and refinement among God's people, as there is today, this power and the gifts of the Holy Spirit cannot very well be received by prayer alone. (If they can be re­ceived in this manner, I ask, where are they? Even in the days of the apostles, they too, found it necessary at times to employ this method to arrest the flesh and become refined in order to receive this power. They were in a state of perfection that far exceeded ours today. We believe many put into practice the prophet's-length fast and obtained the power and gifts. Without following their example and deeds, we are without their mighty experiences.

Consecrated fasting acts as a refining fire to the saint of God, and enables him to become purified and cleansed to such an extent he can obtain the power and the gifts of the Spirit. It actually re­quires a further process of purification and sanctified living to obtain and retain the gifts of the Spirit than otherwise.
