Waiting on God?

‘Not to become Impatient!

Wither we are waiting in a que of anything or that of an answer to prayer, we must learn to be patient with our circumstances?

Those first Disciples of our Lord were told to wait in Jerusalem, for the out pouring of the Holy Spirit! But they did not know it would be only ten days, as we do 2000 years later!

But they did not sit about in this period but got on with the business of the early Ekklesia and then to their joy what was promised came and infilled them with gifting and empowerment to serve thousands across the Roman Empire and into many lands further a field!

Proverbs 8:34,   Mark 11:24,   Acts 1:4,  12-26,   Romans 12:12,   Ephesians 6:18,  1 Thessalonians 1:3,   James 5:7,   2 Peter 3:9,    Jude 1:21.

Holy Spirit Promised. Part-One.

Empowerment.

As believers without the Holy Spirit we could do nothing, we would not be saved. It is the Holy Spirit in this New disspensation that leads us to greater things, in the application of our faith.

In the past it was poured out on individuals to serve the will of God, Abraham, Moses, David and many more. But now all believers recieve a share of Him, the Spirirt of God.

Acts 1:8,  2:4,  Romans 15:19.

Pentecost.

Power and Fire.

Ten days after Jesus has ascended back into heaven, the Holy Spirit/Ghost was poured out on the disciples and followers of Jesus as promised in the Temple are of Jerusalem. Act 2, Joel 2:28-32.

This power from God the Father was to empower believers from there on to be strong and have the ability to preach, serve and share the Gospel message. Paraclete, comforter, one who comes beside in the believers hour of need. As we see when we read the book of Act’s, the believers were severely persecuted for their faith. Act 4:13-31.

From early Church history we know that thousands of Christians died at the hands of the Roman empire. Many went to the lions without fear. Ephesians 6:10-17, Colossians 1:10-12,
