GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR OUR LIVES ...: ON PENTECOSTALISM (HOLY SPIRIT, GOD'S GOD FOR MEN)

The word Pentecostal is a title that has taken prominence in Christian circles lately. What is Pentecostal? It is a nominal derivative of the word "Pentecost" found in the Bible in: Acts 2: 1; 20:16; 1 Corinthians. 16: 8 He only means "fifty" in Hebrew. It was the name given to one of the feasts of the Jews, a feast of thanksgiving where the firstfruits of the harvest were presented to God. It was called "Pentecost" because it was just 50 days after the Passover. - Leviticus 23:15 But in the New Testament this word gains value since on that day it was God who chose to pour out the Holy Spirit for the first time. On that day the Church was born, it is the birth of the Church! The word Pentecostal is descriptive of those who claim to have received the baptism of the Holy Spirit as on that day: with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues. Say: "I am Pentecostal," that is, "I identify with what happened on the Day of Pentecost and believe what there and then believed. I have the same experience of the Holy Spirit (with the initial sign of speaking in other tongues) as the apostles received there. "

The experience of the Holy Spirit is for all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ in this Dispensation of the Church that was born precisely on the Day of Pentecost. But is that all? Could it be that they only spoke of the Holy Spirit on that day? In other words, who are the true Pentecostals? If someone is going to say that he is Pentecostal he should not only accept part of what was proclaimed on that day, but ALL! Baptism in the Name of Jesus. And what was proclaimed? Well, in addition to the experience of the Holy Spirit, it was also the first time baptism was clearly proclaimed in the name of Jesus.

Therefore, every true Pentecostal must be baptized and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Did you do that? The Lordship of Jesus: Moreover it was also on that day when the total Lordship of Jesus Christ was declared, when Peter said: "Let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that this Jesus, whom you crucified, Lord and Christ "Acts 2:36 The doctrine of the apostles. We also read in Acts 2:42 that they "persevered in the doctrine of the apostles". The faith of the apostles was the faith of all. So, Pentecostals are definitely apostolic in their belief and doctrine. And so the Bible tells us then that we should believe: "Built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, being the chief corner stone, Jesus Christ Himself" Ephesians 2:20 Have you obeyed the commandment of Pentecost? This is how the Church was born! Have you had or received the same experience of Pentecost? That is the pattern that God has left for all this dispensation!
