Yesterday across Christendom was Pentecost Sunday.
The day signifies the birth of the church and the feast of harvest referring to the conclusion of the grain harvest. Pentecost Sunday is celebrated on the 50th day (the seventh Sunday) from Easter Sunday. It commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ while they were in Jerusalem celebrating the Feast of Weeks, as described in the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2:1–31).
It is also the fulfillment of Christ’s promise to his disciples that they shall receive power which will come upon them to energize them to do exploits and bear witnesses unto him both in Jerusalem, Judah, and Samaria and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
The manifestation of the promises of Christ was supernatural as the disciples spoke in diverse tongues with a flame of fire on their heads.
Religious leaders, called on Christians to cherish and desire the gift of the Holy Spirit, birthed on this day of Pentecost in order to live a fulfilled and meaningful Christian life.
