THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES

CHAPTER 2
 

          Welcome! Itís a pleasure to have you back, and today youíre in for a real treat. Todayís study is about the day that the Apostles would be introduced to the comforter that Jesus had told them about.  It was called the day of Pentecost.

PENTECOST BIBLE VERSES

PENTECOST BIBLE VERSES STUDY ON PENTECOST BIBLE VERSES STORY WITH PENTECOST BIBLE VERSES MESSAGE

          Iíve got a little Daily Bread Crumb to start off with for this study. What does the word Pentecost mean? Well, in Old English, Middle English, Late Latin and Greek, it literally means fiftieth day, and that obviously is because the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles 50 days after Jesusí resurrection. Jesus ascended into Heaven 40 days after His resurrection and means it was 10 days after that, when this memorable day happened.

          That day, the disciples (remember there were about 120 of them there) were all united in one place, with the same cause, to spread the Good News of Jesus as it was a celebration day in Israel. Suddenly, there was a sound from Heaven like a strong rushing wind and it filled the whole house where they were gathered. Then they saw cloven tongues like as of fire, and it rested upon each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit. Remember, John the Baptist told his followers that they were being baptized with water, but one day they would be baptized with the Holy Ghost and with fire.

          Thereís also a Feast Shadow of this event. In (Leviticus 23:15-18) youíll find that 50 days after the First Fruits celebration, (Which would represent the Resurrection of Jesus) there was an offering of fire made to the Lord.

          Back to the study ... The 120 people gathered in the Upper Room began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. That means the Holy Spirit gave them the ability to speak in other languages, even though they didnít know the language. At that time, there were people from every nation under Heaven living in Jerusalem, and when this unusual thing was made known, the people came together and were confused because each man heard the disciples speak in his own language. They were all amazed and they marveled, saying to one another, Arenít all these people speaking Galilśans? How is it that each of us hears them speak in our own native language? Parthians, Medes, Elamites, citizens of Mesopotamia and Judś a, Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia, Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, Libya, strangers of Rome, Jewish and converts to Judaism, Cretes, Arabians, we all hear them speak in our languages about the wonderful works of God. And they were all amazed, and couldnít believe it, saying to each other, What does this mean?

PENTECOST BIBLE VERSES LESSON WITH PENTECOST BIBLE VERSES EXPLANATION

          This is a very interesting and controversial topic ... Many believe that speaking in tongues is something that automatically happens when the Holy Spirit is within you. However, it is just not TRUTH. 1 Corinthians 12:28 reveals to us that the gifts are given as we NEED them. The gift of speaking in tongues was given to the Apostles  (Acts 2:3-4)  because they spoke to large groups of people of different languages and ALL people of different languages were able to understand this spiritually universal language (Acts 2:8-12).

          Now most of us have encountered someone who starts rambling off a bunch of unknown words and claim that they are speaking in "Tongues" ... However, in Corinthians, Chapter 14 Paul tells us that it is better to prophecy than to speak in tongues. He goes on to say that for one to speak in tongues and not be able to interpret what he is saying to those he is speaking to, is a form of self edification and of no use. It does not edify God. He says in  Corinthians 14:19  that he would rather speak 5 clear words which all could understand, than 10,000 words which nobody understands.

          His point is ... Why would anyone want to teach others in an unknown language when those that he is teaching cannot even understand him? This day and age, we are usually sharing truth, teaching or speaking to another that understands our language and therefore we do not NEED the gift of Tongues. Perhaps if the administration called for it, God would give it to you in that hour.
Again ... The Apostle Paul explains it very well in  1 Corinthians, Chapter 13. Desire Charity ... over gifts. Without it ... The gifts are as nothing.

          Charity is long suffering, always kind, does not envy or uplift self, does not behave itself unseemly, does not seek it's own gain, not easily provoked, thinks not on evil, does not rejoice in sin, yet rejoices in the TRUTH. Bears all things, has hope, endures and never fails  (1 Corinthians 13:4-8). Obtain Faith Hope and Charity ... But the greatest of these is CHARITY (1 Corinthians 13:13).

          Okay, letís continue with what happened at Pentecost. Otherís who were there hearing them speak so passionately mocked them saying, These people are drunk. (You can imagine how excited they must have been experiencing the Holy Spirit for the first time) Well that struck a chord with Peter, so he stood up with the Apostles and gave a very moving sermon to all the people there. He spoke strongly to them, saying, You men of Judśa, and all that live in Jerusalem, listen to me and understand. These people arenít drunk, as you say. Itís only 9 a.m. But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel (Joel 2:27-32). God said, In the last days Iíll pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, and your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams, and on my servants and on my handmaidens, in those days, I will pour out my Spirit and they will prophesy, and Iíll show wonders in Heaven above and in the earth beneath, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke. The sun will turn dark and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord comes. And it will come to pass, that whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved. You men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man, proved in the midst of you by miracles and wonders and signs, to be of God, and by the foreknowledge of God, youíve taken, and by wicked hands, have crucified and slain Him. God has raised Him up, having loosed the pains of death, because it wasnít possible for Jesus to die.

PENTECOST BIBLE VERSES INFORMATION WITH PENTECOST BIBLE VERSES MEANING

David spoke about it.

Psalms 16:8-11
I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

          Then Peter said, Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you about the patriarch David. He is both dead and buried and his tomb is with us to this day. Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had promised him that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, He would raise up Christ to sit on His throne. David, seeing this before, talked about the resurrection of Christ, that His soul was not left in hell, neither did His flesh see death. This Jesus, God has raised up, and weíre all witnesses.

          God has exalted Him by His right hand, and having received the promise of the Holy Ghost from the Father, He has brought forth what you now see and hear. David isnít ascended into the heavens. He said himself, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies your footstool. So let all Israel know truly, that God has made the same Jesus, whom you have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

          When the people heard this, they were touched in their hearts, and said to Peter and the rest of the Apostles, What should we do? Then Peter said to them, Repent, and be baptized, every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins, and youíll receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. The promise is for you and your children, and all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God calls.

          And with many other words, Peter testified and taught them, saying, Save yourselves from this unruly generation. Those who gladly believed him were baptized, and that same day there were added to them, about 3,000 souls! No wonder Jesus chose Peter for the rock on which to build His church!

          They followed earnestly in the Apostlesí doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. And fear touched every soul, and many wonders and signs were done by the Apostles. All the believers remained together, and they lived in commonwealth. That means they sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among everyone as each person needed.

          Each day, united in the Temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate with gladness and unity, praising God and being accepted with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily, those who should be saved.

          You wonít want to miss the next Daily Bread, as we continue with the apostles, as they reach out to the people to spread the Gospel of Christ. Join us!
