Pentecost: The Day Fire Fell and Power Came

Daily Spirit & Word: 743: Pentecost

The Day The Fire Fell & Power Came

Pentecost Prayer Week: Day 7: Holy Spirit.

Good morning my friends, well the DAY we’ve all been praying about has arrived; Pentecost.

It’s the day when Christians all over the world celebrate the BIRTHDAY of the Church. It marks the moments when the Holy Spirit first came upon and indwelt followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, they receive the promise of the Father, the Holy Spirit and His POWER and AUTHORITY.

Pentecost is also a time for Believers and Followers of Jesus Christ today, to remember that SAME Holy Spirit POWER and AUTHORITY is available for every single one of us.

Before I was Born of The Holy Spirit, I hated standing up and speaking in front of people, my knees would knock together, I’d get a dry mouth and a thumping in my chest as if my heart was going to explode. However, when I received Holy Spirit and stood up to speak for Jesus, WOWzer! I literally FELT the power of the Holy Spirit flood into my being. I feel His presence with me and sometimes I feel it much stronger than others. There is a quickening that happens when He wants me to say or do something.

On the first day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came upon Peter and the other Apostles, about 120 of them, they too were TRANSFORMED. Oh my friends, we’ve been praying all week for the AWAKENING of the Church. To see the whole Church set on FIRE with Holy Spirit to go out and EVANGELISE THE NATION.

What we really need, more than anything else, is this SAME FIRE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT to ignite each and ever truly born again follower of Jesus Christ.

Pray and ASK: How much more will the Father in Heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ASK Him?

ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE. 

Get the FIRE of The Holy Spirit Today.

Acts 1:8 (NIV)
8  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

  • What will we receive? POWER.
  • How will we get that Power? When the Holy Spirit comes upon you.
  • What is the Power for? To be Jesus’ Witnesses all over the world.

Awesome!

PENTECOST: Have you been praying all week for your OIKOS (Those who know you are a Christian and a sincere follower of the Lord Jesus Christ)?

To effectively be the WITNESS God wants you to be, you are going to NEED this FIRE from HEAVEN: The POWER of the Holy Spirit.

Jesus said, “Apart from Me, you can do nothing”… You are POWERLESS without Holy Spirit. He is the manifest presence of the Lord Jesus Christ within you.

Be filled today, ask your Heavenly Father to send Holy Spirit into you afresh, anoint you with Holy Spirit power and authority. If you ask you will receive. Don’t doubt, ask in FAITH. Just receive the Holy Spirit by faith and walk in His power to witness to those you’ve been praying about. Then watch the difference!

Amen!

Don.

Pentecost Power Prayer:

Acts 1:8 (NIV)
8  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

What will we receive? POWER.

How will we get that Power? When the Holy Spirit comes upon you.

What is the Power for? To be Jesus’ Witnesses all over the world.

Awesome!

When the Day of Pentecost Came:

Acts 2:1-4 (NIV)
1  When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.
2  Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.
3  They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.
4  All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.

What Happened on The Church’s First Birthday?

They BEGAN to Witness Immediately:

Acts 2:14-21 (NIV)
14  Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say.
15  These men are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning!
16  No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
17  ” ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.
18  Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.
19  I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke.
20  The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
21  And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

My friends, with Holy Spirit POWER and AUTHORITY you too can be EFFECTIVE WITNESSES for the LORD.

Ask and you shall receive. Amen!
