Grace for you today !
Christ My Exalting Glory!
““As for Me,” says the Lord, “this is My covenant with them: My Spirit who is upon you, and My words which I have put in your mouth, shall not depart from your mouth, nor from the mouth of your descendants, nor from the mouth of your descendants’ descendants,” says the Lord, “from this time and forevermore.””
Isaiah 59:21 NKJV
Pentecost is a feast celebrated in the whole of Israel. It’s also called as the ‘Feast of the Harvest’. In Hebrew it’s known as “Shavuot” and in Greek it’s known as “Pentecost”.
In the first Shavuot, God gave Israel 10 Commandments, which is commonly known as the Law of Moses to establish His covenant with Israel .
Since man couldn’t keep the first covenant , God made a new covenant with mankind through the shedding of the precious blood of Jesus and sending His precious Holy Spirit. This happened on the day of Pentecost as recorded in Acts 2:1-4.
What man could not do by his own ability, God did by giving His Holy Spirit as a free gift to everyone who believes in Jesus as his Saviour and Lord.
In other words, Holy Spirit is given to everyone who believes that the death and resurrection of the Jesus Christ has made him the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.
This righteousness of God was not possible in the Old Testament and therefore the Holy Spirit couldn’t dwell in man making him the temple of God. It took the Blood of Jesus alone to have Him dwell in us .
My beloved , the coming of the Holy Spirit with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues, turned the grasshopper- minded -disciples into giant-slayer-believers. This is the month of Pentecost and surely the same Holy Spirit will also orchestrate your lives in a dynamic way. Begin confessing that you are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus and receive this unique gift of speaking in tongues. Amen 🙏
