What does Acts 8:29 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Acts 8:29

Then the Spirit said unto Philip
Not the angel, a ministering Spirit, as in ( Acts 8:26 ) but the Holy Spirit, as the Syriac and Ethiopic versions read, the same with the Spirit of the Lord, ( Acts 8:39 ) who spoke unto him, either by an articulative voice, such as was the Bath Kol among the Jews; or inwardly, by a secret impulse upon him, he directed him, saying:

go near, and join thyself to this chariot;
he bid him make up to the chariot, he saw driving on the road at such a distance, and follow it, and attend it closely; and not leave it, till an opportunity of conversing with the person in it offered.
