I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. (John 14)
In the Name + of Jesus. Amen. The Day of Pentecost. You need Jesus. You need the Holy Spirit. You need the Word of God. Jesus makes a promise to send you the Holy Spirit. W hen the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. Suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2)
Jesus does ALL THE WORK FOR YOUR SALVATION. Christ’s saving work is FINISHED in Jesus’ death and resurrection for you. The Disciples are the Pastors. Jesus is sending the Apostles out to PREACH GOD'S WORD.
The Day of Pentecost is marked with PREACHING! GREAT PREACHING! Hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with mighty works and wonders and signs that God did through him in your midst, as you yourselves know – this Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men. God raised him up, loosing the pangs of death, because it was not possible for him to be held by it. (Acts 2)
