It was on the day of Pentecost that Jesus’s disciples received the Holy Spirit as they were praying in the upper room. The Holy Spirit came like a rushing wind, set on each believer like tongues of fire and they began speaking in tongues. Acts 2:1-6
The disciples then became emboldened to preach the gospel and their faith was strengthened.
I believe that since that day all those years ago, a special outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit now pours out every year at Pentecost – this year 2020 it was May 28 – 30. The Holy Spirit that fell on Jesus’s disciples is available for you to receive today and is essential in the life of every believer, in order for you to walk closely with Lord Jesus in love and holiness. All you have to do is believe and ask God for it, you don’t have to wait once a year!
Pentecost is originally the Jewish festival of Shavuot, the feast of weeks. This originated when Moses received the law and commandments from God on Mount Sinai Exodus 24:12. Today we celebrate this day because thanks to the sacrifice our Lord Jesus made for us on the cross, the law has been fulfilled through Him and we can access The Holy Spirit. How wonderful!
I bless you with Abba God’s love and pray that He pour out His Holy Spirit upon you and into your spirit, in Jesus name, amen.
