Pentecost — what is it? The fulfillment of God’s promise to pour out His Spirit, and Jesus Christ’s promise that even today, if we wait, He will fill us and make us His witnesses!
Texts: Joel 2:23-25, 28-29 and others
— Even from that which looks dead
Comes from above
Makes workable the hard and cracked soil
Prophesied — in the midst of drought, famine, and locusts (Joel 2:23ff)
Prayed for — in the midst of rebuilding, but under the rule of those who did not serve God (Zechariah 10:1ff)
Poured out — Acts 2
The result? As above!!!!!
AND . . .
Unified in nature, now partakers of the divine nature (John 17:23, 2Peter 1:4)
Sanctified through and through (John 17:19, Thessalonians 5:23)
Liberty (2Corinthians 3:17)! From what?
Super-conquerors (Romans 8:37)! Of what?
Sin itself and slavery to it (John 8:31-36)!
THEN we are His witnesses!
