Pentecost by Tazi-san Pentecost by Tazi-san
Pentecost, the reversal of Babel [link] and the fulfillment of the prophecy in Ezekiel 36:26-28:

I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. Then you will live in the land I gave your ancestors; you will be my people, and I will be your God.

And what is cool is Mary now has her son back [link] now and forever as her Lord through the Wonderful Counselor, the Holy Spirit.

. . . it is also a massive comfort for me to know I am washed and forgiven and will never be alone again.

G.T.G.

I really don't care for Pentecostalism to be honest. I don't find a lot of it biblical, it's almost like they worship the gift of tongues and base their entire theology around it. 

They were also telling me that my baptism was illegitimate because I wasn't baptized in "Jesus' name".  They think if you use "Father, Son, Holy Spirit" it doesn't count. It's stupid because the Bible uses both as benedictions. I hate when people make an issue out of trivialities.

If you want to talk about real Christianity, it's about loving God and keeping his commands, and using the gifts he gives us, both natural and supernatural to show his glory and serve others. It's about turning from evil, becoming like Jesus, and embracing him as he washes us clean and makes us new. Real Christianity is also talking about God's mission to rescue mankind from Satan and from ourselves and restoring the original order of peace he created.

I don't really go to big churches anymore unless there's a special exception.  So many of them are dead, cold places where people are plastic.  They are of very little benefit to the community and that tithe money hardly goes to where it is most needed. I usually just meet in small house churches now where we actually care about each other and hold each other accountable. We pool our resources and help each other and the community.

I was just thinking those morning of how empty of love I feel for other people, especially for those who wrong me. But then I was reminded that it's not just a feeling but the very fabric of what God is. You ask him to fill you with his spirit and by default you will be filled with love even for your enemies . . .

Thank you!
