Pentecost – The Day of the Holy Spirit; the Promise Fulfilled

The Upper Room Part 4: The Day of Pentecost – The Promise Fulfilled (All Saints Anglican Church; Peachtree City, GA)

Message Summary:

On Pentecost, the birthday of the Church, the Holy Spirit, the third entity of the Trinity, was poured out; therefore, everyone is entitled to have a personal relationship with God through prayer and the Holy Spirit. The Apostle Luke, in Acts 2:38, tells us of God’s gift of the Holy Spirit to Christians: “And Peter said to them, ‘Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.’". Pentecost changed the previous limited and temporary inclusion of the Holy Spirit into human life relationships with God to a gift from God, as a part of His Grace of Salvation through Jesus, to the Holy Spirit’s availability to all that believe and follow Jesus.

In 1900, the world-wide awakening with the Holy Spirit began when a humble Roman Catholic Nun obeyed the voice of the Lord and wrote to Pope Leo encouraging him to pray for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Based on his concerns with all that was going on in the world, Pope Leo responded to the letter by calling an assembly of the College of Cardinals to a prayer vigil at the Vatican on New Year’s Eve. This beginning spread the same night to Topeka Kansas; and the Holy Spirit descended over the world during the next six years with one revival in California lasting twenty-four hours a day for three years; and the world received a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

Today, we and the world need to be refreshed by the Holy Spirit -- this is what Pentecost is all about. The Holy Spirit is the presence of Jesus among us. Our being filled with the Holy Spirit is normal Christianity. It is the Holy Spirit that enables us to commune with God and to have a personal relationship with Him -- the Holy Spirit is the presence of Jesus among us. You can't live the Christian life without the Holy Spirit. Pentecost reminds us that we are given Spiritual Gifts so that we might be a witness to the Lord.

You will be filled with the Holy Spirit every day that you surrender your life to the Holy Spirit. You cannot be filled with the Holy Spirit if you are consumed by sin and the desires of your flesh.

Are You being led by the Holy Spirit, or you just doing what you think is best? Be filled with the Holy Spirit.

 

Today’s AffirmationI affirm that because of what God has done for me in His Son, Jesus, I AM A CHILD OF GOD. Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His Name, He gave the right to become children of God-- children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. (John 1:12f).

About A Word from the Lord

The vision of A Word from the Lord is to share Biblical teaching using the instruments of radio, print, computer, the Internet, and satellite technology so that people might hear and apply the WORD of GOD and discover the Gospel of Jesus the Messiah.

In today’s world of confusing and conflicting messages from the Church, a major goal of A Word from the Lord can be summarized from Nehemiah when: They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving meaning so that the people could understand what was being read (Nehemiah 8:8,NIV). With all the clutter in today's media venues, A Word from the Lord, seeks to proclaim in simple terms the ancient Faith of the Scriptures. As the Apostle Paul has written for us: So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ (Romans 10:17, ESV).
