one of the most important events of the history of the world - catechism event - apocalyptic imagery

Pentecost and the descent of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-21, 33)


Pentecost and the descent of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-21, 33) it is...

1. it is the beginning of the fulfillment of OT prophesies (Joel, Obadiah)
2. it is the beginning of the fulfillment of the words of John the Baptist - one coming who s fighter than I
3. it is the beginning of the fulfillment Jesus’ own promises - the Spirit is with you but he will b in you - wait in the city till u receive the promise from the Father
4. it is the inauguration and birthday of the church - new covenant made - prophecy made, Spirit descends, result is? church of Jesus Christ - throw a party - when church was born
5. this event is covered with tangible miraculous signs - sound of a rushing roaring wind - astonished to find out whats going on


two things happened at the first pentecost?

1. speaking in tongues - rehearse the mighty works of God in languages they've never heard; talking in languages they had never heard before - dramatic event - the crowd/ the disciples are amazed - disciples found themselves to be baptized with the HS - filled w the HS
2. disciples were given dynamic power for ministry (boldness to preach the gospel ,courage to face persecution, dedication for holy living, spiritual gifts to serve Christ, love for one another -


every believer since pentecost has

not experience the unique historical moment of pentecost - but has the blessing of the HS - particular place particular time - in God’s outworking of salvation - marks the demise of the old covenant and the coming of the new covenant - never to be repeated again

key differences (5)

1. the NC experience the permanent presence of the HS, rather than His anointing (that could be withdraw because of persist or hanus sin (story of russian person being amazed that HS is permanent presence
2. experience the indwelling of the HS (more intimate), rather than his close proximity
3. HS poured out on all believers rather than a select group of leaders
4. HS is for jews and gentiles a like - poured out on both - in the OC is Israelites only - some that would attach themselves as prostate to them
5. Spirit is characteristic of the new covenant work in the church - spirit really come stop the for front here


OC vs NC vs Jesus comes back HS

more extensive and intense in NC then OC -will be even more , in full when Jesus comes back
- pales in comparison to what is to come - now we have salvation in part - we have the blessings in part - we have power over sin in part - now we have the work of the HS in part - then when Christ comes we will have salvations in its fullness we will have the blessings of God in their fullness, power over sin in their fullness - work of the HS in its fullness
