Pentecost is a day that marks the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the Birth of the Christian Church. It is the 50th day from the first Passover Sabbath. 50 Days after Jesus became our Passover Lamb slain for the sins of mankind. It is also the 50th day after the presentation of the first sheaf of the Barley harvest in Israel. The Hebrew “feast of weeks” is a “day of first fruits.”
The function and instruction that sets the doctrinal teaching and learning process in order, is called doctrine. This doctrine is induced by a delegate and ambassador of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, with miraculous power sent to eradicate heresy and establish the truth. The Truth is a Person, the Lord Jesus Christ.
For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.
The most faithful reminder is the Holy Spirit who brings to your remembrance all that Jesus said.
John 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.
We all need a guide. Yes the Holy Spirit is our ultimate guide. But who introduced you to the Holy Spirit? Paul the apostle speaks about remembering what you have learnt and from whom you have learnt it. He also encourages his disciples to do the things that they learnt, received, heard and saw him do. Imitate me as I imitate Christ.
If you can believe that Jesus, the Word of God came and lived among us and became flesh, then gave his life for us on the cross, and was raised from the dead, you can behold his glory in your life today.
That same divine life and light can enter your life, your dormant gifts and talents, your circle of influence and start creating a new world for you to live in. When you get to know the Word of God as a Person, life completely changes for you and every day you start releasing its creative power into every aspect of your life.
There is plenty of incorrect knowledge that sounds right. But we need grace and peace to help us discern all of the voices in the world today. Part of the apostolic anointing is to help believers navigate through the noise to find the right frequency to tune into the voice of Jesus for His Church today.
Sent ones are necessary to stir up the Body of Christ to good works, to empower them with the anointing of the Holy Spirit to live out the purpose of the Church, setting an example to the community of citizens full of goodness, faith and the Holy Spirit. Sent ones are not scared to hunt down those with potential and bring them into the fold where they are accepted and can develop their gifts to grow the church.
