In the opening chapter of the book of Acts, the Lord instructed the Apostles to remain in Jerusalem and to wait for what the Lord had promised, the baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:5). Now, gathered together in one place, the promise is fulfilled. Just as Jesus was crucified publicly, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit came in a dramatic, public fashion. The result was a turning point in world history with the birth of the Church. And the sames Spirit that was at work on the day of Pentecost, is the same Spirit at work in the church today.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. May you be blessed through the teaching of God's Word.
