” In the last days, I will pour out My Spirit on all people”
On 23rd May, San Diego First church held the Pentecost Sunday service.
Pastor Yagobo delivered a message titled ” In the last days, I will pour out My Spirit on all people” based on Acts 2:1~4,14~21.
[Acts2:~4] 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.
[Acts2:14~2]14 Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. 15 These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! 16 No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:
17 “‘In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.
18 Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy.
19 I will show wonders in the heavens above
and signs on the earth below,
blood and fire and billows of smoke.
20 The sun will be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood
before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
21 And everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord will be saved.’[c]
Around 2000 years ago, there was a historic event in human history. it was a historical fact and a very memorable event that the Holy Spirit comes down on people who believe in Jesus.
Through this event, the church built on earth by the Holy Spirit. So church celebrates this very day when the Holy Spirit was poured out on earth. Church on earth wouldn’t have existed without the Holy Spirit. The existence of Church on earth is evidence that the Holy Spirit come down on earth. Even though the worldly people do not even know about the Holy Spirit as Jesus said to his disciples
