The day of Pentecost was observed in Jerusalem fifty days after the celebration of the Passover, which commemorated Israel’s deliverance out of Egypt. It was on this day that the Lord chose to begin the fulfillment of Joel 2:28: “I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh….”
The Spirit came upon the waiting, praying disciples in an overwhelming manner. That same Spirit is still being poured out on men and women of all ages all around the world.
You too can experience the Gift of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost Sunday, May 28, 2023.
Celebrating The Day of Pentecost
The Day of Pentecost is one of the most momentous events in the history of man kind. It was on this day that God chose to birth this powerful church. It was on this day that the Old Testament prophecy written in Joel 2:28 was fulfilled, “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh…” It was the beginning of the phenomenal plan that God had for this end-time body of believers. For in Matthew 16:18 he stated, “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” It was the reason for His birth, His life, His death, His burial and His resurrection.
God no longer wanted to live in tabernacles made by hands. He so much desired a more intimate relationship with mankind. It was not enough for God to be around man, he wanted to be inside of man. It was on this day, in the upper room that God first took up residence in those 120 disciples and followers.
This phenomenon continues today, the Boston Globe, estimated that 50,000 people a day are receiving the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues worldwide. God is still pouring out of His Spirit upon all flesh in the year 2023!
If there is a group of people on the face of the earth that ought to observe this significant day, it ought to be those who have experienced this real power of Pentecost. Those who have been fire baptized, those who walk and live in the Spirit.
Let us make Pentecost Sunday a highlight in our lives, in our families, in our churches, in our districts and in North America. Let us celebrate it by sharing this wonderful experience with a friend, family member or co-worker and bring them into an apostolic climate where they too experience Pentecost for themselves. We call on every Pentecostal man, woman, teenager and child to put forth their best effort in time and in finance, to achieve the best Pentecost Sunday results ever. The masses are waiting, ready to be free, with the power of Pentecost.
