- Keys to victorious living.PENTECOST SUNDAY!Pentecost Sunday is a few hours away. It's not a day to just think back to the disciples or reminisce about when you were filled with the Holy Ghost. Tomorrow is an appointed time and a divine invitation for us to receive a fresh baptism. The disciples were filled in Acts chapter two and refilled, emboldened in chapter four. Let's look at Acts 2:1-4 NKJV "When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance." The 120 in the upper room were not just in the same place physically, they were in the same place spiritually. They were all expecting, they were waiting on the promise of the Spirit to bring them power to witness, make disciples and change the world. Tomorrow is an opportunity for the body of Christ around the world to be in one accord in thousands of different places. Can you imagine the sound from Heaven we could hear if all of us around the world surrendered to the power and person of the Holy Spirit tomorrow?! What we're they doing before that sound came? Jewish teaching tells us its customary to stay up studying the Bible and welcome in the full day of Pentecost. Corporate prayer and Bible study ushered in the coming of the Spirit! Tomorrow, when we go to church, whether you're able to be present in the building or watching online, expect your Church, your house and your life to be transformed by the fresh baptism of the Spirit. Tomorrow is not a normal Sunday, oh no. We just came out of a literal Passover. Individual Jewish and Christian families in Israel in America just celebrated Passover in their homes for the first time in decades and a plague was passing over. Jesus told the disciples wait in Jerusalem till you receive the Holy Ghost. We've been in our homes since Passover and for many of us tomorrow will be our first service back in church! God has something for us tomorrow!The Future War of the Church by Chuck D. Pierce#Repost @christiansunitedforisrael (@get_repost) ・・・ We thank President Trump for signing into law the bipartisan Never Again Education Act. This legislation will combat the rise in anti-Semitism in our nation by teaching the next generation about the Holocaust and its lessons. A special thank you to Senators Jacky Rosen and Kevin Cramer and Representatives Carolyn Maloney and Elise Stefanik for leading this important act! #NeverAgain #CUFII know people are angry over the murder of George Floyd and they should be. But the cycle we enter when something like this happens does nothing to stop racism and it further divides the country. There is a devil loose and he doesn't stop with a white man murdering a black man. The same devil that puts racial hatred in hearts willing to accept is the same devil who has blacks killing blacks in record numbers continually in Chicago. It's the same devil but he manipulates the media to help further the divide between black and white and ignore other ways the black community is being destroyed. There's a devil loose creating fatherless homes and the legalized genocide of thousands of black children through abortion. I will never know what it's like to be afraid because of the color of my skin. I don't know what black people in America face. I don't pretend to know and I don't pretend to understand. I don't understand racism. To me it's just stupid and I know it originates from the pit of hell. I remember my first day of freshman year, I was sitting at a table by myself reading my Bible. A big black guy came over and said hey, are you a preacher's kid? I said no. He said, I am, sat down and started talking to me. Next thing you know people are pulling chairs from other tables and gathering around. My entire freshman year I ate lunch with probably fifteen black people. Every day we just talked about the Word. A couple of times we got in trouble for being too loud because we all had our Bibles and we would get to preaching. That is the answer to what the devil is doing. Being Kingdom people and doing Kingdom work. There is no such thing as a black church, white church, hispanic church. All that junk is from the devil and it's meant to divide the children of God. Let's expose the enemy and all his schemes. Let's expose racism for what it is without indicting everyone who wears a uniform. The devil wants us to paint with a broad brush because that's how he brings chaos. Let's be angry and sin not. No amount of anger justifies looting and burning buildings. Pray for our nation. Pray for hearts to change. Pray for awakening.#pentecost #shavuout #wordandspiritTonight begins the Feast of Shavuot (Pentecost). It is the celebration of the giving of the Torah in the Old Testament and the coming of the Holy Spirit in the New Testament. Jesus said in John 14:26 NKJV "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you." and he went on to say the Holy Spirit will guide us in all truth and prayed that we would be sanctified in truth, the Word is truth. The Word and The Spirit work together. We can't have true Spirit-filled moves of God without the Word and we can't receive revelation from the Word without the Holy Spirit. Over these next few days as God emphasizes His Word and The Spirit make extra time to study the Word and ask to be filled or refilled with The Spirit. Take time to study and pray through the following Scriptures between now and Sunday night: Exodus 20 Ruth John 14-17 Acts 1-5 Psalm 119 There are several ministries hosting online Pentecost services. I'll be watching Curt Landry Ministries tonight and tomorrow night at 7pm. Don't miss what God has for you during this appointed time. Hear and receive what He has for you. As God is drawing near to us let us draw near to Him in prayer, Bible study and giving. If you want to give a special Pentecost offering, I encourage you to choose one of these three ministries, @larryhuchministries @curtlandrymin and @jewish_voice they all do great humanitarian work in Israel and bless the Church with their teaching. #shavuout #pentecost #torah #holyspirit #encouragement #biblereading #biblestudy #spiritfilled#Repost @copelandnetwork (@get_repost) ・・・ 🚫 Racism is not OK.
