Dad comments on the birth of the church and the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost…
1 When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues[a] as the Spirit enabled them.
Here is the fantastic fulfillment of the promise given by the living Christ in Luke 24. During those wonderful three years Jesus walked beside his disciples. Now He will walk within them. They will be filled with His Holy Spirit. That took place on the Day of Pentecost when the Lord poured the Holy Spirit into the hearts of His 129 followers, and the church and the Body of Christ was born with great rejoicing.
