The Return of The Dove

Joel 2:28-29

16 And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; 17 and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”

Matthew 3:16-17

1 When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Acts 2:1-4

The Promise of Pentecost

2,000 years ago, 120 disciples of Jesus sat in the Upper Room praying and waiting, in accord, for the promise of the Holy Spirit. It was Pentecost Sunday, around 9 am, when the power of God rushed into the Upper Room like a mighty rushing wind. Tongues of fire rested upon each and every head. The promise of the Holy Spirit had come. Pentecost had been fulfilled. 2,000 years later, we take all of this for granted. We don’t fully grasp what that meant for the Church and the world that day. Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he opens our eyes to the grave importance of Pentecost in his fiery Pentecost Sunday message, The Promise of Pentecost.

The Fruit of The Spirit vs. The Gifts of The Spirit

Throughout the years, we can see a subtle decline in the strength of the Church. In the previous ages of the Church, there were miracles, signs, wonders, and healings. The gifts and fruit of the Spirit weren’t just evident; they were understood. But as time passes and society ‘progresses,’ we seem to regress as a Church. We’re no longer able to even see our prayers answered, much less see the power of God working in our lives. What does that mean for us? Is there no more power from God left for this generation of the Church? Are we programmed and intended to be weaker than previous generations of the Church? Are the gifts of the Spirit no longer working in our lives today? Are they just not meant for us? Join ArieRashelle as she searches through Scripture to find some answers in her video, The Fruit of The Spirit vs. The Gifts of The Spirit.

The Holy Spirit

The Fruit of The Spirit

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23

The Gifts of The Spirit

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, 10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. 11 All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as He wills.

1 Corinthians 12:4-11

Where’s the Power?

The Feast of Shavuot was celebrated from the time of Moses. When the Day of Pentecost (Shavuot) had come in its entirety, the followers of Christ were together in one accord in the Upper Room. When they were in the Upper Room, the Holy Spirit came and filled all in the Upper Room with the Holy Spirit and His power. 2,000 years later, what happened to the power of the Holy Spirit that came down and filled those in the Upper Room? Does the Church still have power today? What does Joel’s prophecy in Joel 2 mean for the Church?

The Power of The Holy Spirit

So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Acts 1:6-8

17 And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; 18 even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.

Pentecost in the Bible is called by three names, Pentecost, the Feast of Weeks, and Shavuot. As Christians, every year, we celebrate or remember the day of Pentecost, but do we truly understand what we are celebrating?

The Day of Pentecost

The Feast of Weeks Decreed in the Bible

15 You shall count seven full weeks from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering. 16 You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath. Then you shall present a grain offering of new grain to the Lord. 17 You shall bring from your dwelling places two loaves of bread to be waved, made of two tenths of an ephah. They shall be of fine flour, and they shall be baked with leaven, as firstfruits to the Lord.

18 And you shall present with the bread seven lambs a year old without blemish, and one bull from the herd and two rams. They shall be a burnt offering to the Lord, with their grain offering and their drink offerings, a food offering with a pleasing aroma to the Lord. 19 And you shall offer one male goat for a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old as a sacrifice of peace offerings. 20 And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits as a wave offering before the Lord, with the two lambs. They shall be holy to the Lord for the priest.

21 And you shall make a proclamation on the same day. You shall hold a holy convocation. You shall not do any ordinary work. It is a statute forever in all your dwelling places throughout your generations. 22 And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap your field right up to its edge, nor shall you gather the gleanings after your harvest. You shall leave them for the poor and for the sojourner: I am the Lord your God.

Leviticus 23:15-22

Pentecost in the New Testament

We see the term Pentecost first used in the New Testament in Acts 2 when all of the followers of Christ were all together in one place, in one accord. When the Holy Spirit was poured out on all flesh, both Jew and Gentile, fulling Joel’s Prophecy of the coming Pentecost.

1 And when the day of Pentecost was 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 all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Acts 2:1-4

After they are filled with the Holy Spirit, and the people around there mock them, Peter stands up and quotes the prophecy of Joel 2. Peter explained that this prophecy was a prophecy of Pentecost.

14 But Peter, standing with the eleven, lifted up his voice and addressed them: “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give ear to my words. 15 For these people are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. 16 But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel:

17 ‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; 18 even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy. 19 And I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke; 20 the sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day. 21 And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’”

Acts 2:14-21

Peter goes on to explain this prophecy of Pentecost was fulfilled on that day when God sent His Holy Spirit to all of mankind so that both Jew and Gentile might be saved. God sent this prophecy of the coming Pentecost to the Prophet Joel and fulfilled it 2,000 years ago.

When the Day of Pentecost Had Fully Come

Acts 2 starts out by stating, “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come,” Here’s the scene, all of Jesus’ followers were together in one accord in the Upper Room. Then suddenly the power of the Holy Spirit rushed over them like a rushing wind. They were filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other tongues. So, the question then is why does this matter? Why does it matter that they were all together? What does this have to do with the Day of Pentecost? Join Reverend Kenny Yates as he opens our eyes to the importance of Acts 2 in his message, When the Day of Pentecost Had Fully Come.

When the Day of Pentecost Had Fully Come

The Power of the Holy Spirit

The arrival of the Holy Spirit and His power.

1 When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered, because each one was hearing them speak in his own language. And they were amazed and astonished, saying, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language? Parthians and Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, 11 both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians—we hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God.” 12 And all were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” 13 But others mocking said, “They are filled with new wine.”

Acts 2:1-13
