“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.” Acts 2:1
Moses went up to Sinai and brought down the law. Jesus went into Heaven and sent the Holy Ghost. The letter killeth but the Spirit giveth life. Under the law 3000 were killed for sin (Ex 32:28). Under grace 3000 were saved on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:41). Under the old 120 priests could not minister because of the Glory Cloud (II Chron 5:12-14). On Pentecost 120 were baptized with the Holy Ghost and spoke in tongues and prophesied.
This is a Jubilee Pentecost – Pentecost in the year of Jubilee. Both represent 50. Jubilee is every fiftieth year; Pentecost is fifty days after Passover/Firstfruits – The DOUBLE. On the day of Pentecost, after Jesus’ ascension to Heaven, Peter said, “this is that…”, to explain the manifestation of the Holy Ghost outpouring. What people termed as strange, foolish, and intoxication, Peter said was the fulfillment of the Word.
Pentecost is more than just a phenomenon as some would claim. It is the work of the Holy Spirit empowering God’s sons and daughters for the work of ministry; the edifying of the Church of the living God. It is the same Power that Jesus, our Firstfruits (I Cor 15:20, 23), walked in while on the earth; the same Power that His disciples walked in; the same Power that we walk in if we believe.
As the Day of Pentecost after Christ’s ascension, was paramount then, it is paramount now. This is Jubilee Pentecost. The year of Jubilee began September 23, 2015. On April 15, 2014 and April 4, 2015 and October 8, 2014 and September 28, 2015 we experienced a tetrad of red blood moons which occurred at the same time as Passover, and during the Feast of Tabernacle. The significance being they took place on God’s Holy Feasts Days. Peter also quoted Joel as saying, “…and the moon into blood.” It was on Pentecost when He spoke it – the day Jesus sent the Holy Ghost to indwell us, empower us, and work through us. This is Pentecost – the Ministry of the Holy Ghost.
