Daily Fountain 2017 - The Great Promise Fulfilled

 
 
 
 
Sunday June 4
(Pentecost Sunday)
 
Bible Reading:     Acts 2: 1 - 13
Topic:         The Great Promise Fulfilled
Today in the Church's calendar is special as we remember and celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit in fulfillment of the Prophecy of Joel 2: 28 - 32.
In the Old Testament times, the Spirit took possession of anyone God wished to use as an instrument to perform a given task took leave of him thereafter.
God chose a unique occasion ten days after the Ascension of Jesus to fulfill His long standing promise.
God drew people from all walks of life to Jerusalem for the feast of Pentecost and did it in the unique way ensuring that the disciples of Christ present spoke in tongues of all those gathered from many different parts of the then world.
However some standing by made a mockery of it saying the disciples were drunk with wine.
Have you had the baptism of the Holy Spirit?
If you haven't been so baptized, then do the following
i.        offer yourself as a clean vessel to God (Isa. 52: 11)
ii.       wait on God as the disciples did (Acts. 2: 2)
iii.      desire Him (John 7: 37 - 39)
iv.      ask for Him (Luke 11: 13)
God is ever willing to give His Holy Spirit to all who will repent of their sins, surrender all to Him through the Lord Jesus Christ. The promise is for Jews and the Gentiles
Prayer
Oh God, baptize me with Your Holy Spirit in the Name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
Memory Verse             Acts 2: 4
"And they were filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance."
