Invitation to Pentecost (Mar-Jun 2010)

Today, May 23, 2010, much of the Christian Church remembers and celebrates Pentecost, the day when Jesus began to baptize in the Holy Spirit as predicted by his prophetic forerunner John the Baptist. A cross-section of the population were listening when John made that promise, and he addressed it to them all (Luke 3:10-16). This baptism in the Holy Spirit was not limited to Jesus’ apostles. It is for people in every country throughout all generations (Acts 2:39).

The events of that first Christian Pentecost signaled the beginning of the Last Days – a time of salvation and messianic blessings to believers in all nations. This era, foretold by the prophets, will continue until Jesus returns to judge the world and to bring about the consummation of God’s everlasting Kingdom. During the interim, Jesus is present with his people through the Holy Spirit – and he immerses them in his personal Presence and power.

Unfortunately, there is much confusion about Pentecost and the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Fortunately, there is no need for that confusion to continue, for Scripture speaks often and clearly on the subject. Today I invite you to join me in an online Bible study that costs you nothing. With Bibles open, we will carefully consider the need for Pentecost, the background of Pentecost, the blessing of Pentecost, the diversity of Pentecost, and an invitation to Pentecost. Whatever your Christian background or present fellowship, you’ll be blessed by this powerful message. It is scripturally balanced, constructive and very practical.
