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.

As in "Pentecostalism"

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!

Also related: On the return of Moses from the mountain, he found the people treating a calf made of gold as a god, and that ended up with the killing of "about" 3000 people... the same (approximate?) quantity as would be added to the believers on the day depicted!

That is a TIGHT story plot. It also makes me wonder if the number of humans redeemed will equal the 1/3rd of angels who rebelled.

Yes. Joy. Joy. Joy. Holy Ghost joy. I'm pentecostal myself, so I particularly love this. Actually, it's what convinced me that God was real when I was a very small kid. This is the most real thing in the world to me, or as close as one can expect to get.

Y hello thar!:hug:

When you experience God it goes past the mental rationalism. No one can take that experience away from you no matter how much they try to debate/mock you. I first truly experienced him when he cleansed my sin 7 years ago. I felt so light and clean after that and he was singing, it felt like a resonating tuning fork in my spirit. We were finally on the same wavelength =D

I believe the pentecostal movement has a LOT to contribute, especially the fact that you CAN have a tangible experience with God. People want to FEEL close too, God created us for that desire for intimacy with others and with Him. That's why so many people go running to new age and witchcraft because they think YHWH God cannot be experienced in closeness.

The downside is that the last few Pentecostal churches I tried to attend seemed to worship the gifts more than YHWH and lord it over others as if tongues make them holier. And the crazy behavior (pfffffthhdkshfeiunceu) argh.

That's... very confusing. Yeah, we seem a bit crazy, but... Seriously, you shouldn't knock it 'till it knocks you. It's the best feeling ever, and my pastor gave a v. good explanation of the whole investment idea this morning. You see, when you invest belief and expectation, you get results then, if they're unsullied. But the power stores up over time, and God puts more into us than we could ever give back... That's why it's so beautiful to me.... The God of the Universe has invested in me. It's a wonderful, wonderful feeling, Tazi-san.

This was a wonderful example of God's outpouring of his holy spirit on his servants. This anointed them and also gave them the miraculous abibility to speak different languages of foreign nations so that they could then go and talk to foreignors about the good news of God's kingdom.
I wish I could be given the ability to speak Spanish instantly; but I'll just have to learn it. :)

This is marvellous. One aspect of this glorious day that gets to me is the fact that they weren't just Jews of the nation, but people who had come from all over the world to meet in this one place, all for their faith in God (see Acts 2:5) And i see that u did include that fact, looking at the faces of the people you drew. :D
Absolutely wonderful work. :heart:
