Having a biblical belief system concerning the Holy Spirit is essential to every believer.

Pre-Prayer for Pentecost

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, said God, I will pour out of my Spirit on all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams” (Acts 2:17).

Pentecost is a sovereign move of God provoked by praying people. The Day of Pentecost was “fully come” (Acts 2:1) because Jesus had about a 120 people who were totally committed to seeing His Word, Spirit and Power released into His Church. You cannot manufacture a move of God.

A move of God is when God is moved by people who would dare trust Him             and petition Him to do the supernatural.

The Upper Room Must Be Reoccupied

Where are the 120? Where is the cluster that will stand in the gap and make up the hedge? Where are the men that will lead us in prayer? Where are the women that will join the men in prayer? Where is the Upper Room in the modern Church? Where is our prayer priority? Where is our prayer passion? Where is our present day Pentecost?

Prayer Fire For Prayer Power

What a shame and sham we now see in the public prayers of modern church leaders! We need prayers that are heated by the flames of the Spirit! We need praying that is anointed, effectual, and fervent! Away with these casual prayers that ask for nothing great! Away with these prayers that declare nothing, command nothing or demand nothing from heaven! Away with these prayers that are rehearsed, recited and repeated like poems! Away with these prayers that are not weighted down by God’s Word nor anchored in the name of Jesus! Away with these prayers that string along religious cliches that have no truth, grace nor power!

The Prayer Warriors and The Prayer Weepers

We need praying that will call upon God to pour out His Spirit! We need praying that comes to the altar and will not let God go until He blesses! We need praying that will once again brings tears and will once again cause “weeping between the porch and the altar” (Joel 2).
The Power of Praying People

There is but one thing that keeps the Spirit from being poured out upon all flesh – our lack of prayer! Churches that are committed to united and anointed prayer are the key holders to the next sovereign move of God in His Church. We are not bystanders; we are participants, partners and partakers of God’s divine plan in these last of the last days. Praying people shape human history! Praying people are assigned to release what the heavens have been holding. The heavens are holding the latter rain for the last days!

Pray For The Rain!

“Ask for the rain in the time of the latter rain” (Zechariah 10:1). This is the time to pray for the release of His Spirit! Make no mistake about it! Our only warfare is a prayer warfare. The enemy wants to stop the rain and the rainmakers. The rain is resisted by the enemy because the rain will give, “everyone grass in the field”.  The enemy fears where the LORD is about to put you and put into your life. The enemy fears the progress, promotions and prosperity you are poised to receive.

The Holy Spirit is Your Best Business Partner

The outpouring of the Holy Spirit is going to impact every area of your life, including your finances. The “visions and dreams” that come with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit are not just for ministries, they are  also for businesses, entrepreneurial ideas and creative innovations. Praying people have the Holy Spirit as their primary partner in business.

Baptist Churches Celebrate Pentecost

Sunday , May 20th, 2018 @ 10:00am @ NEW HOPE Baptist Church, Oakland, CA.

“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place” (Acts 2:1).

On Sunday, May 19th, 2013 the historic and landmark New Hope Baptist Church of Oakland, California made history, yet and again. For the first time in its lored and treasured legacy the congregation hosted an official celebration of Pentecost Sunday. This year Pentecost Sunday returns to NEW HOPE for its fifth annual celebration.

There is a 50 day spiritual campaign, which always begins on Resurrection Sunday and culminates on Pentecost Sunday. The word “Pentecost” means fiftieth.The pastor and membership are committed to reading through the Book of Acts, seeking greater intimacy with the Holy Spirit through dedicated days of prayer and fasting and seeking to prepare to serve the Church and our communities with spiritual gifts and financial generosity. The theme this year is “Ask For The Rain!” (Zechariah 10:1).

A traditional Baptist church is celebrating Pentecost Day because Pentecost is not Pentecostal. Pentecost Day is not the celebration of the Pentecostal movement or any Pentecostal denomination. Pentecost is not the celebration of spiritual phenomenon or speaking in tongues. Pentecost is the celebration of the Exalted Lord Jesus Christ. Pentecost means that everything Jesus promised, He fulfilled. We have the Holy Spirit because Jesus made it back to heaven and back to His throne safely.

When Peter preaches on the first Pentecost Sunday he says, “Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear” (2:33). What happened on Pentecost Day was proof positive that the Resurrected Jesus was now back in heaven as the Exalted Lord. It is the Exalted Lord who poured out the Spirit upon all flesh. It is the Exalted Lord who baptizes in the Holy Spirit. Pentecost celebrates Jesus!

Pentecost then belongs to every believer! Resurrection Sunday is celebrated universally throughout modern churches. Even churches that are not evangelical or gospel-oriented acknowledge Resurrection Sunday. It is the biggest Sunday in the Body of Christ. What is the celebration about on Resurrection Sunday? Our Savior is alive! What is the celebration of Pentecost about? Our Savior is alive and exalted!

What are the implications of a Baptist Church celebrating Pentecost? 

1) The exaltation of Jesus is primal, essential and central to all the Church aspires to accomplish.

2) The atmosphere in the congregation must be welcoming of the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in daily life, at every assembly and in every worship experience.

3) The pastor is Spirit-filled and attributes all effective and transformative ministry to the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.

Isaiah 53

The Suffering Servant

(Matthew 26:57-68Mark 14:53-65John 18:19-241 Peter 2:21-25)

1Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

2For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

4Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

6All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.

8He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

9And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

10Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

11He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

12Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors
