Where to begin: Part 2

1) Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
When Jesus rose from the dead, He had all His disciples to meet together to talk to them. He told them that He wasn’t going to leave them powerless. After they had received the Spirit of God into their hearts, Jesus told them of a power from God they would receive on the day of Pentecost. The Holy Spirit would not only protect them, He would give them power to carry out the will of the Father. On the day of Pentecost, the disciples were gathered in the upper room. They shut the doors and began praying. It says there was a mighty rushing wind that blew all the doors and windows open. Everyone began to speak in other tongues. Tongues of fire from the Holy Spirit descended upon each one’s head. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit. There were 1000’s of people in Jerusalem for the feast of Pentecost. People came to see what all the noise was about. Peter began to speak to the crowd about what God had done. He said this was the promise that God made to Abraham. People heard Peter speak in their own language. There were people from almost every country in the world. Every great revival has started in Pentecost. Unfortunately it seems that it didn’t last. Not because God did anything different. Man moved away. Our lives are tied to the children of Israel. For 2000 years, the children of Israel haven’t had a home. Only after WWII did they return unto the Promised Land. In 1967, the Israelites took back Jerusalem. Then began worldwide a series of Holy Ghost revivals. They are still happening today. It is very important in God’s plan that we are Pentecostal, filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
Acts 2:38 “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
