Easter. Part-One.

The Last Supper.

Jesus met with his disciples in the upper room to celebrate the Jewish Passover (Pesach), to remember God’s deliverance of His people from Egyptian slavery. Exodus Chapters 12-15.

It was at the table that Jesus revealed who was going to betray him, Judas Iscariot, but he also warned Peter that he would deny him and all of them would desert him soon. Matthew 26:14-30, Mark 14:10-31,  Luke22:3-34, John 13:21-30, 36-38.

We may like to boast in what we have, who we are and what we can do, but to be a real believer in Jesus will cost you. We are expected to take up our cross daily and follow. We are also asked to share in His struggles too. Are you up to it?  Luke 9:23-25. Romans 6:16.

Pentecost (50-Days). Part-One.

Jesus has now returned to heaven. Acts 1:8. and the promised Holy Spirit/Ghost is about to be poured out on the Disciples and followers of Jesus in the Temple courts in Jerusalem, Roman occupied Israel. John 7:39, John 14:16-17, 26, John 15:26, John 16:7.

The Holy Spirit/Ghost comes like a rushing wind and tongues of fire are seen falling on these men from Galilee. The Temple is full of Jews from all over the known world of the day, who have come to Jerusalem to celebrate the first harvest festival. Acts 2:1-17.

The prophecy of Joel is also fulfilled. Joel 2:28-32, Acts 2:17-21.

But this is now the beginnings of a new dispensation of the Way, the new congregation, which will later be known as the Church. The Holy Spirit/Ghost, Parakletos, comforter is only to be given to those who come to a personal faith in Jesus as the Son of God, crucified, resurrected from the dead and one day will return for them at the end of the age.

But everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Joel 2:32.
