Lord Jesus Christ

Pentecost Dove and FireWith the coming of the Holy Spirit, a new order of prophetic figures began. Old Testament prophets were recorded as receiving the power of the Holy Spirit for a specific task. They were given the resources for the job, but for only as long as it took to do it. After the Day of Pentecost, it was different. The Holy Spirit descended on all who believed in the Lord Jesus Christ and remained upon them, rather than on a select few for a particular task. Thus Christians can say they are filled with the Holy Spirit. This is a very present experience day by day.✞

Prophecy Fulfilled

World ProclamationWith this giving of the Holy Spirit's power at Pentecost, the prophecy of Joel was fulfilled. It was described in Acts 2.17-18, "Your sons and your daughters will proclaim my message, your young men will see visions, and your old men will have dreams. Yes, even on my servants. both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will proclaim my message." From that day onward, there were to be a multitude of Holy Spirit filled prophetic figures, rather than a few chosen prophets. These prophetic figures were to be the evangelists - women as well as men, old and young - but all proclaiming the same unique message, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The message only varied in its presentation, the elements of it were essentially the same every time and in every place.✞
