TOPIC: Pentecost (White) Sunday

TEXT: Acts 2:1-21(NKJV)

Daily Fountain Devotional 5 June 2022 MESSAGE

Pentecost means “fiftieth” because this feast was held fifty days after the feast of fruits (Lev. 23:15-22). The calendar of the Jewish feast in Leviticus 23 pictures the outline of the work of Jesus Christ. The Passover pictured His death as the Lamb of God (Jn. 1:29; 1 Cor. 5:7), and the feast of first fruit pictures His resurrection from the dead (1Cor. 15:20-23).

Fifty days after first Fruits is the feast of Pentecost, which represents the formation of the Church. At Pentecost, the Jews celebrated the giving of the law. Christians celebrate it to commemorate the giving of the Holy Spirit to the Church. The feast of the First Fruits took place the day after the Sabbath following the Passover, which means it was always on the first day of the week (Sabbath being the 7th day).

Jesus arose from the dead on the first day of the week and “became the first fruit of them that slept” (1Cor. 15:20). Now, since Pentecost was fifty days later, seven weeks plus one day depicts the fact that Pentecost took place on the first day of the week. What a great God we serve who aligns everything to His glory.

He sent the Holy Spirit to inaugurate the Church and empower believers to continue the work of expanding the work of God among men on earth. (Lk. 24:49; Acts. 1:8). Are you baptised in the Holy Spirit?

PRAYER: Lord fill your Church afresh with the Holy Spirit.
