“When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” Acts 2:1-4 NIV
Wind and Fire came down on the day of Pentecost and everyone in the upper room were filled with the Holy Spirit, with all speaking in unknown tongues and languages about Christ, and Apostle Peter began to prophesy as he released the fulfilment of Prophet Joel’s prophecy. It was like God speaking to the thousands who wasn’t called by human technology or means, but by God himself to Jerusalem. That day, 3000 souls got saved and these were like head of families, which means tens of thousands received Christ. It was a day of resounding joy and laughter in the Spirit despite persecution by the Romans.
Breakthroughs always come with an inward witness of Christ in our Spirit. An impetuous fisherman like Peter, became loving Apostle who reaps souls as a fisher of man. It was powerful and great day of fulfilment by the Spirit of God. Praise the Lord!
To God be the glory!
