Pentecost



Exodus 19:1-6
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
Moses on Sinai
19  In the third month after the sons of Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt, on that very day they came into the wilderness of Sinai. When they set out from Rephidim, they came to the wilderness of Sinai and camped in the wilderness; and there Israel camped in front of the mountain. Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain, saying, “Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob and tell the sons of Israel: ‘ You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings, and brought you to Myself. Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words that you shall speak to the sons of Israel.”
Exodus 19:18-20
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Lord Visits Sinai
18  Now Mount Sinai was all in smoke because the Lord descended upon it in fire; and its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked violently. 19 When the sound of the trumpet grew louder and louder, Moses spoke and God answered him with thunder. 20  The Lord came down on Mount Sinai, to the top of the mountain; and the Lord called Moses to the top of the mountain, and Moses went up.
Exodus 32:28
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
28 So the sons of Levi did as Moses instructed, and about three thousand men of the people fell that day.
Leviticus 23:15-16
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
15 ‘ You shall also count for yourselves from the day after the sabbath, from the day when you brought in the sheaf of the wave offering; there shall be seven complete sabbaths. 16 You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh sabbath; then you shall present a new grain offering to the Lord.


-- This was 50 days after they left Egypt.  God's covenant with the Hebrew nation began at Pentecost - "pente" = 50.


Acts 2:1-4
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Day of Pentecost
When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.
Acts 2:37-42
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
The Ingathering
37 Now when they heard this, they were pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brethren,what shall we do?” 38 Peter said to them, “ Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself.” 40 And with many other words he solemnlytestified and kept on exhorting them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation!” 41 So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls. 42 They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
-- God's covenant with the Hebrew nation began on Pentecost.  His new covenant began in Acts 2, on Pentecost.

Easter Sunday was April 8th, 2012.  Passover 2012 was on April 6th.  

Add 50 days and you have this weekend - May 26th and 27th.

It's the birthday of the covenants - the birthday of the church.

Happy Birthday!

The groom is coming for His bride.  Clothe your self in holiness and purity.

Be ready.
