And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Acts 2:2 NKJV
This event that took place on the day of Pentecost.
Jesus told His Apostles; “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Jesus told them to wait in Jerusalem until the coming of the Holy Spirit.
The events of Pentecost occurred when the disciples were gathered together in unity. They were in Jerusalem in obedience to Jesus. They waited for the Holy Spirit in faith!
Most of the Apostles were not theologians or bible scholars. The Messiah revealed Himself to them. Emmanuel the God man called them. Jesus chose them to be His witnesses. Jesus taught them. He revealed how much He loved them by living with them.
When they were filled with the Holy Spirit the Apostles began to speak in languages that were unknown to them. Those words spoken in faith changed the eternal destiny of millions!
I am not a Pastor Priest or Theologian. I’m not even a writer. These messages are filled with words that were previously unknown to me. I write them in faith because I believe God will use them to change people’s lives.
Has Jesus Christ revealed Himself to you? If so He is calling you. Jesus has chosen you to be His witness. He wants you to testify of the things He has shown and taught you. Jesus wants you to be a witness of His great love for people!
You and I cannot even fathom the height and width and depth of God’s love for us!
Ask Jesus to fill your life with His presence. Let Him speak to you and through. Obey the Lord so He can change the lives of people in your corner of the world.
You do not need to be a Pastor Priest or Theologian to serve Jesus. God wants you to follow the example of the Apostles and the early church. They gathered together in unity with other believers. They obeyed Jesus. They waited for the Holy Spirit in faith!
You do not need to wait for a sound to come out of heaven. You do not need to wait for a mighty wind to blow. Jesus wants you to respond to His great love in faith today!
Step up the witness stand. Testify for Jesus Christ. Tell other people what you have seen and heard!
Ask Jesus to fill your life with His presence and follow Him to the ends of the earth!
