Slaves to Sin!

Slaves to Righteousness?

Since we have repented and come to faith in Jesus, we are no longer living in the world by its standards but we have been set free to live in the righteousness of God?

Many believers today are turning away from the truth of everything, because they want to be themselves, they want God in their pocket!

But that is not how it works, we have been bought with the precious blood of Jesus and we must obey God, letting go of everything that would hold us back from being followers?

This is why we have a comforter, the Spirit of God who leads and helps us, when we cannot do it alone, or are struggling!

John 3:3,   14-18,   Acts 2:3-4,   Romans 3:22-23,   6:22-23,   Ephesians 6:10-18,   Revelation 2:2.

Paraclete.

The Holy Ghost/Spirit.

Only for belivers and not the world, Jesus promised his disciples would recieve power from on high to help them to preach the gospel message. From the day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit has been poured out on all believers.

We need Him to help us when we are weak and afraid to serve, to share, to give testimony. He intercedes for us in these times of troubles, when we do not know what to say.

John 11:25, 1 4:26,  Acts 2:33,  2 Corinthians 12:10,  Ephesians 6:18,  Hebrews 7:25.

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.

Ascension.

of the Lord Jesus.

Jesus was now departing back to heaven, after spending 40-days with His disciples and followers proving to them that he had really risen from the dead. But it was now time to go. He had promised that when he went he would send the Holy Spirit/Ghost, Paraklete to comfort them. Acts 1:9-11, Luke 24:50-51.

But this was not the end.. Jesus will come back one day, the same way that He left and everyone will see him. There will be no escape. We who have a believing faith in Jesus must not loose hope of that promised return. The world without him on the other had will fear His return. Revelation 1:7.
