Pentecost. Commemoration Day of the Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Acts 2:4 “And they all were filled with the Holy Spirit”. Pentecost forty days after the Ascension of Jesus Christ; fifty days after Passover, His Resurrection, the Holy Spirit was poured out.
The Act of the Holy Spirit: the sudden sound was like that of a mighty wind filling the whole house where the disciples were staying in Jerusalem. Cloven tongues like fire were seen up them. The fishermen of Galilee were speaking in different foreign languages. All people present were amazed and able to understand the great Event that had happened. Christ crucified, but also risen; the Crowned Christ and now at the Right Hand of the Father.
The Gift of the Holy Spirit. The Presence within trusting hearts. The quiet peace and the blessed assurance within telling us about the wondrous God. To live a life in faith and honor of His Holy Name. The Holy Spirit will lead us through this life on earth teaching us all Truth until we also can be where our Saviour is. Blessed rest, blessed peace for the soul.
