WHAT HAPPENED ON THE DAY OF PENTECOST (*SERIES PT. 2)

In the previous series, we focused more on how to receive the Holy Ghost and I centered more on the fact that before the Holy Ghost was ministered anywhere in the bible, it was often first preceded by a sermon. Now it is based on this faith that comes by hearing the word that every other thing follows as the brethren are led by the spirit of God.

In Acts 19, Apostle Paul met some believers and he had to preach first to set the altar of their hearts in order first. Then they knew they had to repent and correct their wrong water baptism by baptizing by immersion in water in the name of Jesus Christ.

Acts 2 where the first Pentecostal move of this grace era began, you see Peter preaching to set the altar of the heart in order.

Acts 2:47 And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

Also in Acts 8, you see the systemic way in which Philip and the apostles happened to have prepared the hearts of the brethren before the apostles came in to pray and lay hands on the believers in Samaria.

Alright having said all this, I would like to point out that based on the scriptures; the day of Pentecost was more than speaking in tongues. Pentecostalism is more than having an anointing. It is more than you being able to demonstrate power. It is Christ in you the hope of glory.

Misplaced understanding resulted in the misinterpretation and misrepresentation of what happened on the day of Pentecost.

The day of Pentecost is commonly connected to The baptism of the Holy Ghost. It is also one major topic that has been misrepresented especially among the Pentecostals and the way they have popularized the errors they propagate, they have done to the extent that the orthodox churches detest what they are doing and this has driven the orthodox churches further away from the move of the spirit as they become “deader and deader” (permit me to use that) and what is one to expect because I believe the orthodox churches see what is happening among the pentecostals this way: “You say that you have the Holy Ghost. You said God is talking to you, you said you are prophets; you said you are anointed, you see Jesus every day and it is still among you people that the greatest scandals take place. It is among you they will hear a Bishop has fornicated, a Prophet has fornicated, your Apostle has fornicated”

You most probably know much better the level they have descended to. It is the lack of respect for the Pentecostals that resulted in how that man in South Africa was handled. The thing is there. The video is everywhere in the net, how they mal-handled such a Pastor with such a big ministry because they have no regard any more for anything called Pentecostalism. And the reason is because, even the so-called Pentecostals have no knowledge of what the baptism of the Holy Ghost is and all of them make reference to the day of Pentecost so let’s go back, Halleluyah! Let go back to the focus/topic that I titled “what happened on the day of Pentecost?”

Let us understand, what is it that happened on the day of Pentecost? This series is more of a bible study and so I beg to interject here that you please, I beg you in the name of Jesus Christ, you may have read this scripture severally just like I have read it several times but always there is always a deeper look at every scripture so don’t just assume ehn….

Acts 2:1-12.
1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?

And this question is what we want to answer in this study, what meaneth this?

    1. How do i give myself to Christ for i believed many years back but i know my life is not under full control at all…what i kno is to pray for God to help me I try but still dont realize results…please need help…

    1. Give Jesus your all and when you do do so… you will just know it because of the peace that you will have within you.

  2. Total obedience to His Word. You fall, you get up and stick to Him and stay focused on Him. You let Him have full access and final authority over your life. This is you part of the bargain and God will do the others by His grace which he bestows on all that believe in Him through Christ Jesus
