God's Gift of Grace Was Poured Out in Ernest On Pentecost 31 A.D.
The Holy Spirit Was First Poured Out on Christians
Welcome to this important new hub. God offered the Holy Spirit to the first New Testament Jews who became Christians, or followers of Jesus Christ, in 31 A.D., after Jesus Christ death and resurrection. This is a most blessed Day in that the Holy Spirit is finally given ( undeserved pardon from sin)to more humans as part of God's plan of salvation. Now through God the Father's Grace humans can take their first step to becoming the sons and daughters of God, 2 Corinthians 6:16-18. Their is no other name under heaven by which we can be saved but Jesus Christ's, Acts 4:12, who shed his blood for us That we too may have the glorious hope of sharing eternity in the Kingdom of God with our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit - Ruach HaKadosh.
Do you understand what this means? That we can have new Spirit Bodies just like God and His angels. Living an endless life free of pain and suffering and no longer any fear of death because this victory has been bought for us through the faith and reighteousness of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior of the world, 1 Corinthians15:51- 57. Now as we start living our new lives in Christ we will be able to keep God's Laws of righteousness the Ten Commandments, in the Spirit of Life, Romans 8:1-4. We will no longer have to try and keep God's Laws through our weak fleshy carnal bodies. Now with the Holy Spirit in us we can fulfill the Law in the Spirit who now lives in us as we are begotten by God's royal sperm Jesus Christ, Galatians 3:29.
In the beginning of human creation our first parents sinned and were cut of from the Holy Spirit or the the Tree of Life but now we have access to the very throne of God if we continue in a life of following Jesus Christ examples for us. We must be doers and followers of the Word's sinless life, John 14:6 and follow Him, John 8:51. Our ancient ancestors (if you are an Israelite) the children of Israel could not keep them because the Holy Spirit was not yet poured out on them. They could not keep the Law that was given to them by the God of Israel (Jesus Christ) on the first Pentecost kept by them on Mt Sinai in the wilderness after they had escaped from Egypt during the Exodus. Though the Ten Commandments were given to Israel as part of God's marriage covenant with them they were not able to keep them. But now after the promised Redeemer came, Genesis 3:15, there comes a change in the human heart of mankind with the giving of the Holy Spirit. This change was promised in Jeremiah 31:31, to a future calling of Israelites to salvation starting with the Jews in Jesus days, when the New Testament Church would be founded and the calling of more humans down through the ages to God's salvation.
Now, more than ever there is a calling to humans in all nations to salvation as we approach the coming Millenium when Jesus Christ will return and reward His followers with eternal life and rulership here on the earth, Revelation 5:10; 20:1-4, Zechariah 14:1-9. Satan has set up many false churches with false ministers to try and fool us but if you are diligent with God's Word you cannot be fooled. We are commanded to come out of all these false Churches and false teachings so we do not receive the plagues that will come on them, Revelation 18:1-8.
So do you understand this calling of God to you now? Are you ready to ride with Jesus Christ when He returns to the earth on your white horse, Revelation 19:11-14. You will need to get ready by studying God's Words in the Bible and enduring trials and temptations from Satan to make sure of your calling, 2 Timothy 2:10-16, Revelation 12:9, Are you exhorting others to get ready for Christ's return, 1 Thessalonians 5:11-24. God wants us to witness for Him to this evil dying world so that many can be saved now!
This first giving of the Holy Spirit of God Started on Pentecost 31 A. D.. We should also be keeping this special Holy Day which comes after the Passover and Days of Unleaven Bread, counting 50 days starting the first day of the Wave sheaf offering after the weekly Sabbath during the Days of Unleaven Bread, Leviticus 23:10-22. This Day should be kept by Christians today. Do you keep it? You should if you believe Jesus Christ gave his life for you! Now all humans can become the children of God along with the House of Israel and the House of Judah, Ezekiel 36:22, Romans 11:25-32.
Even all humans not called since creation will also be given their chance at salvation when God's grace will be poured out on them at the White Throne Judgement, Revelation 20:11-15, after they repent of their sins and they too will have time learn of God's plan of salvation pictured on the Last Great Day When the Holy Spirit will be poured out on them also, John 7:37-39.
Remember Jesus Christ gave His life for us so that can become the sons and daughters of God, forever, 2 Corinthians 6:17-18, Romans 8:16. So be carefull and prove all things. Listen to what the Holy Spirit says to you in Hebrews 10:15-25 > Whereof the Holy Spirit also is a witness to us: for after that She had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my Laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of sin is, there is no more offering of sin. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; and having an High Priest over the House of God; let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) and let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
Are you still uncertain as to what God would have you do? Than listen to what the Apostle Peter said on that very special Pentecost in 31 A.D., to you and all sinners today -"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKadosh). For the promise is unto you, and your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. It is God the Father's grace or forgiveness of sin along with being begotten by Jesus Christ's faith and righteousness in us that we will be saved and born of the Spirit, John 3:5-8, 16-18. Amen!
