Acts 1:4,13-15 - In The Upper Room On The Day Of Pentecost

Acts 1:4 - On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: "Do not leave Jerusalem, but (WAIT) for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.

Acts 1:13-15 - When they arrived, they went upstairs to the room where they were staying. Those present were Peter, John, James and Andrew; Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew; James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas son of James. 14They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers. 15In those days Peter stood up among the believers(a group numbering about a hundred and twenty.)

Acts 2:1-4 - And when the day of Pentecost was fully come , they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting . 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Read Acts chapter 1 & 2 in it's entirety.

Pentecost = Fifty. The Fiftieth is a prominent feast in the calendar of Ancient Israel celebrating the giving of the Law on Sinai, and also later in the Christian liturgical year commemorating the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the remaining eleven Apostles of Christ (Judas had hung himself), included in the 120 Disciples in the Upper Room, after the Resurrection of Jesus.

Jesus ascended up to Heaven 40 days after His resurrecton and 10 days after that was the day of Pentecost. That is where the 50 comes from. 50 days after the resurrection.

The 120 in the upper room prayed while they waited. They were all on one accord. They received the promise of the Holy Spirit who would comfort them. The Holy Spirit was described in Acts 2 as the sound of a mighty wind and burning fire! GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY.

ALL I COULD SAY IS "LOOK AT GOD"! THERE IS NONE LIKE HIM! HE IS TRULY THE SOVEREIGN GOD.

WHO WOULD NOT WANT TO SERVE A GOD LIKE THAT?

GOD BLESS AND I LOVE YA.

TELL GOD THANK YOU FOR HIS COMFORTER, THE "HOLY SPIRIT" WHO LEADS AND GUIDE US INTO ALL TRUTH AND RIGHTEOUSNESS CONCERNING HIS WILL FOR OUR LIVES.

I love you all with the love of Christ.
