Dear Praying friends: Many mainstream Churches will be celebrating Pentecost in a few days’ time. Almost 2000 years ago a promise passed down to us by the prophets of old; was fulfilled. The Holy Spirit visited the reborn people of God and it brought unexpected results! These same reborn Christians became empowered to turn the world upside down – or should we say the right side up. Within months thousands upon thousands came to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Within a few years the Good News of Jesus had travelled around the entire ancient world. It has been told to us in scripture that God’s Holy Spirit is like a river… ever filling those who are willing to open their hearts to Him. If ever we needed the Holy Spirit as the Bride of Christ it is now. If ever the world needed a bold witness it is now. If ever we needed the world to be turned the right side up… it is now. So, we pray, come Holy Spirit, sweet dove of God – fill our hearts and our lives. As Jesus promised, and He cannot lie; so we may be your witnesses in our homes, communities, cities, nations and to the ends of the earth. Amen.
