FILLING THE HOUSE!








PENTECOST SUNDAY

But ye shall receive

Power,


after that the HOLY SPIRIT is come upon you:


and ye shall be witnesses unto ME+


both in Jerusalem,


and in all Judaea,


and in Samaria,


and unto the uttermost part

of the Earth.

Acts 1:8



And when the day of Pentecost was fully come,



they were all
with one accord
in one place.

And suddenly there came a sound from Heaven

as of a rushing mighty wind,

and it

FILLED ALL THE HOUSE

where they were sitting.

And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire,

and it sat upon each of them.

And they were all

filled with the HOLY SPIRIT,

and began to speak with other tongues,


as the SPIRIT gave them utterance.

Acts 2:1-4






May The LORD JESUS CHRIST fill our houses and our hearts

with His+ Blessed HOLY SPIRIT

so that, IN ONE ACCORD,
our joy and our peace may flow abundantly


offering LIFE+ to this dead and dying world...


to rescue the perishing

and save the dying

and to prepare our hearts for the Eternal Habitations.



In the name of the FATHER Who+ begat us,

His Beloved SON+ Who saves us,

And the HOLY SPIRIT Who sanctifies us.




Amen

SO... WHAT WAS HE+ DOING DOWN THERE?


So,


what was HE+ doing


way


down


there?


Scripture says HE+ was 3 days and 3 nights in the heart of the earth.


So... what was HE+ doing down there ?


PREACHING!!!


What was HE+ preaching?


HE+ was preaching the Good News !


What was the Good News?


There was LOTS of Good News !


1. Death has no more dominion over HIM+.


2. HE+ is the firstborn from the dead.


Who did HE+ preach to ?


1. the dead


2. to the captivity


3. to the Patriarchs


4. to the righteous dead who died in the Covenant of Abraham


For it was impossible for Death to hold HIM+ !


HE+ broke the bonds of sin...


DEATH...


the curse laid upon all of us sons of Adam due to sin.


The sting of death is sin and the power of sin is the [Mosaic] law. Adonai, The LORD JESUS CHRIST, was the fulfillment of the Law. HE+ , a man had no sin of Adam: HE+ was the 2nd Adam ! But HE+, a man, was born under the curse of death. HE+ would die as all human flesh dies.


But, HE+ won the battle and "Death" died ! That old enemy, "Death," was swallowed up in Victory !


Death, the ultimat curse, couldn't hold HIM+ because it had no claim on HIM+ even though he was the son of man... because HE+... yes, HE+ alone... had no sin!


The Good News ?


Death


cannot


hold


HIS+


people


either!


... His+ people who have entered His+ covenant and are walking... dead to sin... but alive unto GOD, through CHRIST JESUS, our Risen LORD!


"Death" was .... and IS... swallowed up in Victory... even for the smallest, tiniest Christian.


Do not be afraid of those who would kill the body... but be afraid of the ONE+ Who has the power to destroy both body and soul in Gehenna... the second death!


+ + +


Bless GOD! FATHER, SON+ , and HOLY SPIRIT!

And blessed be HIS+ Kingdom, forever and ever.

Amen.
