Holy Spirit

Until the Spirit is poured out upon us from on high, And the wilderness becomes a fertile field, And the fertile field is considered as a forest. Isaiah 32:15

This week is celebration of the “Day of Pentecost” in which God poured out his Holy Spirit upon all the people. Many of us often reference the scripture from Joel about the Prophecy of this event. But was also prophesied by Isaiah. The promise of the Holy Spirit which Jesus taught us would come.

So what is the “Day of Pentecost” its actually the “Festival of Weeks” in which the Jews celebrated from Deuteronomy, the given of Thanks for everything God has given us. During this time its celebrated Moses given the Ten Commandments from Mt Sinai. Interestingly the festival was renamed from Shavuot to Pentcost due to the Greek influence on the Jews at that time. “Pentecost” means 50 , referencing the 50 weeks after Passover in which the holiday is celebrated. This shows you how much Greek influence there was on the Jews during this time.

So just as God delivered the Torah or Ten Commandments to the Jews, he also delivered the Holy Spirit to us, who is our teacher and comforter. The wilderness becomes a fertile field, meaning once Baptized by The Holy Spirit , you become reborn. Just like the Dry Bones, the dead come back to life with the Rauch (Breathe, Spirit) of God in Jesus Name Amen
