Pentecost Sunday

Pentecost Sunday

The apostles were in the middle of their Pentecostal feast when suddenly a loud sound, like a fierce wind, filled their ears.
 
All the apostles felt alive and full of energy, totally revitalized, and as they looked at each other in amazement and wonderment, they saw that every apostle had a tiny flame hovering over their head.
 
“The Holy Spirit has arrived”, they exclaimed and they were even more astonished to discover that they were all speaking in different languages.
They all felt as though they had unlimited energy, courtesy of the Holy Spirit, and they ran excitedly out into the nearby streets giving thanks to God in many different languages.
 
Some were preaching about God in Greek; whilst others were preaching about Jesus in Latin. And some were praising the Holy Spirit in Arabic.
 
It was the tradition that many people from the surrounding countries visited Jerusalem at the time of Pentecost.
 
And when these people from foreign lands heard the apostles preaching with the mighty power of the Holy Spirit, they marvelled, one to another:
“These men are only from the area of Galilee. So how is it that they can speak our language fluently?”
 
But some people just laughed and made fun out of the apostles by saying that they were only drunk!
 
But when they heard Peter preaching everyone felt an emotional stirring because of his vibrant passion.
 
“Most certainly we are not drunk, far from it”, Peter joked. “We are followers of Jesus of Nazareth. He has come back from being dead. We have seen him with our own eyes!
 
And today the Holy Spirit has descended upon us, which is why you are able to understand what we are saying in your own language.”
 
And Peter continued, “Those of you who are truly sorry for all the sins that you have committed may receive God’s blessing today. Will you join us?”
 
And that very day, following Peter’s preaching and teaching more than 3,000 people were baptized and became followers of Jesus.
 
Praise be the Lord. Hallelujah
With many peaceful blessings

The Dusty Room

They came unexpectedly. Two of them following a man with a jar – he pointed me out, and then disappeared as the others hurried towards me. I recognised them immediately; they were followers of Him, the teacher.

We had spoken before, this teacher and I, He spoke wisely and seemed somehow to be able to look inside my very soul.

We had discussed money, something that I was very fond of, but He seemed to think that I should give more away, help the local poor, reach out to those in need around me. I was a little taken aback; after all, who was this man to tell me what I should do with my own money?

But He sowed a seed, and it really got me thinking. It was as if He knew it would, as if He even knew the outcome of my thinking.

Then of course it happened, his two disciples arrived and asked for my upper room so that they and the teacher could share the Passover together.

Here was my chance, to show Him that I had been thinking about our conversation. I welcomed the party and told them I would prepare it for them.

They went back to give Jesus the news and I went straight to the room that had not been used for a while and needed a good clean. I spent the afternoon cleaning everywhere, making it ready to receive Him.

It was not too long before they showed up. Everyone looked hot and bothered, He smiled at me as I had said nothing about charging Him for the use of the room. He knew I was beginning to change.

He asked me for a bowl of water, which I provided and then to everyone’s amazement He bent down and washed his disciples’ feet. I have never seen a teacher, a leader do that before. Who was this man who turned the norm on its head and changed everything from the inside out?

Urgent Appeal for Priscilla

priscilla

There is a little girl in India – Priscilla – who needs urgent life-saving surgery.

But India, sadly, has no free National Health Service like we do here in the UK.

The cost of Priscilla’s operation will be 63,000 Rupees (around £800) which is a large sum of money for my friends in the church in India who are desperately praying for her.

They are praying for a miracle and I am asking for your kind and generous support in making this miracle become a positive reality.

I will be donating all the profits from the sale of my recently published paperback book – ‘What Is Your Favourite Bible Verse?’ – for Priscilla’s life-saving operation.

All you have to do is to go to:-

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1520602545

The book only costs £9.95 which is a very small price to pay when you know that you will be preserving the life of this little child, Priscilla.

And, in addition, if your heart tells you that you would like to donate more money toward’s Priscilla’s operation then please go to my donation web page:-

All donations that we receive will be sent immediately to the Priscilla Fund Raising Committee in India.

Thank you, in advance, for all your wonderful love and support

God Bless

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

(Acts 2: 1-4)

During the past few years I have come to know the Holy Spirit very well. And our Father God has empowered me with the Holy Spirit so that I am given the gift of writing books to glorify His Kingdom.

Through 186 pages and  51,000 words, and through the willing assistance of the Holy Spirit, I humbly invite you to order a copy of my new paperback book.
The Holy Spirit is good – all the time

And

All the time – the Holy Spirit is good

The Holy Spirit Store

The Holy Spirit Store

During this past weekend I have begun to design the Holy Spirit Store.

Although, at the moment, it is still in its embryonic stage, I thought that I would share the web address of the store with you.

If you are interested in any of the products that we are selling all the links do work and all the products may easily be ordered.

I plan to add more categories as time permits.

All the profits from our new Holy Spirit Web Store will go towards expanding our overseas ministry.

As always, your wonderful love and support will be greatly appreciated.

May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you now and for evermore.
