Woe Unto the Enemies of God! — 2 Comments

  1. Dear Geraldine,
    I quote in part, a line from your word: “Jesus’ promise was fulfilled in Acts 2, when The Holy Spirit in-dwelled and empowered the disciples in Jerusalem.  However; so many have begun to take The Holy Spirit for granted by saying, and doing things that are offensive to Him!”

    If the Holy Spirit INDWELLING did happen at Pentecost [Acts 2] then what is to be the answer for this Holy Spirit verse in… JOHN 20:19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.

    20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.

    IT IS PLAIN THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS GIVEN TO THE APOSTLES IN THE UPPER ROOM SHORTLY AFTER HIS RESURRECTION. 

    Since the Holy Spirit was BREATHED TO THEM, the what does Acts 2 speak of?  I DOES NOT SPEAK OF THE INITIAL COMING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT TO INDWELL BELIEVERS, BUT.  IT WAS IN DIRECT FULFILLMENT OF JESUS PROMISE: “YOU SHALL RECEIVE POWER TO BE WITNESSES” NOT MANY DAYS HENCE, SO TERRY IN JERUSALEM UNTIL YOU RECEIVE THIS POWER.  see ACTS 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

    Then the Breathing upon was [WHEN THE LORD BROUGHT TO THEM THE HOLY SPIRIT TO INDWELL THE NEW CHURCH] and then the POURING OUT OF POWER WAS UPON THEM FOR MORE.

    Many today do not understand the difference.

    JOHN 20:20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the disciples glad, when they saw the Lord.

    21 Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

    22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

    23 Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
