After Jesus was resurrected He stayed in the area for forty days, and was seen by hundreds of believers. One day when Jesus and His disciples were together He said to them, in Acts 1:4; “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.” (He was talking about the Holy Spirit.)

Jesus was filled with the Holy Spirit only because He was without sin. When He went to the cross, He washed away the sins of all people who would believe in Him.

Jesus, the Lamb of God, was the perfect sacrifice for our sins. He told His disciples not to leave Jerusalem because in ten days would be the feast of Pentecost, when Jews from all over the world came to Jerusalem to celebrate.

It was the exact time God had chosen to start Christ’s church. In verse 5 Jesus told them, “In a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit, and receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on them to be His witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all ...

The building of our character

The character of a person is usually determined by how that person lives his or her life. But where does a person’s character come from?

Some of our character is hereditary, then molded through our environment. But then there’s the character we receive from God. When we step away from the world and its influences and allow Jesus to take control of our lives, then the character of Jesus begins to manifest itself in us through the power of the Holy Spirit.

In Galatians 5:22-23, we find the fruit of the Spirit, which are; Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. A person who has these qualities is someone we all like to be around, and can trust. The interesting thing is that this fruit is the very character of Jesus. And if we allow Him to work in our lives He will help us to grow in this fruit through the Holy Spirit within us.

So how does the Lord go about growing our character into what He needs us to be? Actually, in many ways, by prayer, studying His Word, fellow-shipping, etc, but one way God works in all people is explained in Romans 5:2b-4, where Paul writes; “And we rejoice in the hope of the ...

New beginnings and restorations

Last Sunday people all over the world celebrated Easter. On that day in 30 AD, Jesus proved that everything He ever said was true.

Throughout the Gospels, Jesus often started statements with; “I tell you the truth.” Jesus is the truth.

He said; “I am the way the truth and the life.” He could never lie about anything.

When He told the Pharisees the temple would be destroyed and rebuilt in three days, He was referring to His own body, and He told them the truth.

The day Jesus went to the cross a new thing began, the covenant of grace. The Jews had been under the covenant of the Law for almost 1,500 years, but Jesus did a new thing that was for all people.

It was called grace, salvation through faith.

When Jesus came out of the tomb, He proved that all who ...
