Empowered: The Fire Begins

1. Pentecost, in Greek, literally means 50. It was the first Sunday, 7 weeks after Passover, and celebrated in the Jewish calendar.
(Leviticus 23:16; Numbers 28:26; Exodus 23:16; Exodus 34:22; Deuteronomy 16:9)
2. The Jews from every nation had come to the Temple in Jerusalem to offer their first fruits and sacrifices.
3. Pentecost was one of the three Jewish feasts that called for a pilgrimage to the Holy City.
4. It was a feast of harvest and it truly became their first great harvest where 3,000 were given eternal life on that day.
B. The Holy Spirit was poured out on the Jews gathered in Jerusalem…
1. The Holy Spirit came like a rushing wind.
a. Jesus related that the symbol of the Holy Spirit was a like a wind.
b. Both the Hebrew (OT) and Greek (NT) words for spirit are translated breath or wind.
2. The Holy Spirit came like flames or tongues of fire.
a. God appeared in a fire to Moses.
b. God led the Israelites by a pillar of fire (and a cloud) to guide them.
3. Each individual received a personal presence of the Holy Spirit like a fire.
4. The disciples spoke in more than 15 languages as a witness of the Gospel to all the nations.
C. Peter’s message was two-fold…
1. Everyone is in need of forgiveness of sin and to be born again!
2. Everyone is in need of the power of the Holy Spirit to live a victorious Christian life.
a. Sincerely desire to be controlled by the Holy Spirit.
b. Confess any sin that may be present.
c. Surrender yourself as an offering to God.
d. By faith, thank God for filling you completely with His Holy Spirit.
