The Holy Spirit Comes at Pentecost

Jesus ascended 40 days after Passover-

The day has arrived-

50 Days- since Passover-

The waiting is over-

Pentecost (also called-Feast of Weeks) this is a festival for thanksgiving for harvested crops

The disciples gathered together in a room in Jerusalem and prayed- the presence of God came down upon them- first, a violent wind, fire and then the Holy Spirit.

Just as the fulfillment  of John the Baptist- the Holy Spirit would baptize these believers with fire which was an outpouring of the Holy Spirit and a confirmation of the prophet Joel 2:28-29

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

People were hearing the praises of God in their own languages as the disciples were praying and praising God. This confirms to us that Christianity does not limit any race or group but God wants all to repent and come to Him.

5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. 6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. 7 Utterly amazed, they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? 9 Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” 12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”  Acts 2:1-12

Is God speaking into your life?

Sometimes He just whispers and sometimes it’s dramatic, however He does it- He is trying to get your attention, why not pray?

Happy Pentecost – Praise God, seek God and Believe God!

Shalom
