50 days after the passover celebration the Jewish people celebrated the Feast of the Harvest also know as Pentecost. During this celebration Jews from all over would gather into Jerusalem for the feast. This great celebration was the perfect stage for God to perform a miracle.
"And when the day of Pentecost was fully come they were all with one accord in one place. " Acts 2:1 When the day was come all of the apostles were on the same page. There was no disconnect between them as they were awaiting a sign from Jesus. When you are praying with others are you all focused on the same purpose? Are you praying for a miracle from God?
"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 2:2-4
"Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own tongue. " Acts 2:6 Many were surprised the hear the apostles speaking their native language, however they should not have been as God is able to cross all barriers. He is not held within a certain nationality or ethnicity.
"And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this? Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine." Acts 2:12-13 When the Holy Ghost comes upon you some may doubt and others may mock but it is important to remember that this is God's spirit.
The Holy Spirit gives us power to do what we are unable to do on our own.The apostles baptized 3,000people that very day. We can learn an enormous lesson from this event: When God has something big for us to do he will empower us to do it.
"Have you received the Holy Ghost since you believed?" Acts 19:2 The Lord desires to place His Holy Spirit in each one of us? But are we willing to receive. One of the greatest miracle that happened to the disciples on the day of Pentecost is that they believe that God word, they obey what the Lord told them to do and they were ready to receive all that he had for them. They were ready in their heart and mind to receive a MIRACLE.
Are you ready to receive your miracle? Get into the position of faith, and refuse all doubt so the Lord will come and place His Spirit inside of you. Keep reading the rest of the Acts 2 and find out how you may receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues.
Stay Blessed and Continue Warring for Christ!
