God give me the grace
And please help me find the space
To reveal your face
God give me the grace
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.”
Jesus was single-minded to accomplish His mission on earth. It cost his life. James 1:8 tells us a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. A stable mind does not stagger at the promises of God – like Abraham (Romans 4:20). Jesus promised to manifest Him to those who obey His Word. Do you want Jesus to reveal Him to you? Then increase your obedience to the Word of God.
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.
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.
In the New Testament every Apostolic Epistle starts with an Apostolic Blessing or greeting: ‘Grace & Peace to you!’ The reason why the Apostles did that was because they pronounced the Aaronic Blessing on believers! They knew what they were doing and the people understood it too. It is not just a lame religious exercise, but it is a powerful blessing for those who believe!
