Acts 2:1 “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.”
120 of His followers were filled with the Holy Spirit on that day. Now 2000 years later, the same Holy Spirit is still filling those that hunger and thirst after Him. He said I will be found by those that seek Me, if you ask for a bread will He give you a stone? Ask, believe and be filled today.
John 20:21 “Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father has sent Me, even so I send you.”
Is it not exciting that the Creator of the universe personally wants to be in a relationship with us? But even more than that, He is eager to prepare us in order to continue the work that He started. Ask Him to keep you filled with His Holy Spirit.
Mark 16:6 “And He said unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.”
Like on that glorious day so long ago, God has not changed, neither does He lie, no grave could hold Him. Now you “are” risen with Christ, this is your victory over all of the enemy. (Luke 10:19)
Psalm 23:1 “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want.”
Praise the Lord O my soul, that you and I don't have to go down into eternal darkness. He went on our behalf, conquered the devil, took the keys and secured our place in Heaven. Rejoice and give Him thanks.
Ezekiel 37:1 “The hand of the Lord was on me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones”
Although it all looked very dry in that valley and disarranged, when the Word was spoken, every bone obeyed and came to its place, but only when the Holy Spirit was spoken out over them was there a result. Speak into they dry bones this day that you, see and glorify the Lord.
Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness; for they shall be filled.”
Praise God, there is so much more of God and in God that He still wants us to partake of, its all available in Christ, through the Holy Spirit. Receive, live, and be that testimony that this world so needs.
Luke 22:20 “Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the New Testament in My Blood, which is shed for you.”
What a comforting revelation it is, that because He paid the ultimate prize, we now live our lives in total victory and are no longer subject to the enemy of our souls.
2Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
The more we are willing to let God through the Holy Spirit work in our lives, the more we realize that within ourselves, or through our own doings we profit nothing, but through Him we receive “real” life that will be eternal.
Acts 4:31 “And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the Word of God with boldness.”
Praise the Lord that our God never changes, and that in these days He is restoring. He said in Genesis 1:26 His Image and Likeness is being absorbed by those that seek Him and rely on Him, not by power or might but by His Spirit.
John 17:12 “While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy name; those that Thou gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition that the scripture might be fulfilled.”
On this day when many people make jokes and play pranks on each other, God's power and love will never fail or just be empty words, He is real and has never changed.
