And there appeared to them tongues resembling fire, which were separated and distributed and which settled on each one of them. And they were all filled (diffused throughout their souls) with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other (different, foreign) languages (tongues), as the Spirit kept giving them clear and loud expression [in each tongue in appropriate words].” Acts 2:3-4 AMP

The cloven tongues like of fire came to polish them. Before this men were dull in expression of themselves. They were gifted, but their gift was dormant in them. But the moment they received the baptism of the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues they glowed in every aspect of their life. 

The word polish means “to make something smooth or shiny by rubbing it.”

The Holy Spirit changed everything about them by rubbing Himself on them and in them, therefore polishing them and their gift.

That is one of the blessings they received by being filled with the Holy Spirit and praying in the Spirit with the help of the Holy Spirit in Jesus Christ mighty Name. 

These men were refined and purified by The Holy Spirit to offer, offerings of righteousness unto God Almighty in Jesus Name. 

But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap; He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver, and He will purify the priests, the sons of Levi, and refine them like gold and silver, that they may offer to the Lord offerings in righteousness.” Malachi 3:2-3 AMP

Lets pray together:

Heavenly Father, I thank You for Your Word. Thank You for polishing me up as I practice praying in the Spirit in Jesus Christ mighty Name, Amen.
