The Flaming Church

This Sunday is the celebration of Pentecost. Below is my sermon from last year on Acts 2:1-41. Pentecost takes place ten days after Christ’s Ascension into heaven. He ascended forty days after His resurrection and the Spirit came ten days after Christ’s ascension, on Pentecost. Throughout church history colors have been very important. For the […]

Pentecost Snippets Part 3

There is this interesting exchange between the Jews from other nations and the Apostles in Jerusalem. Here the Apostles are, Jesus has ascended and mighty wind has come upon them bearing tongues of fire upon their heads, and then the Apostles start speaking in languages they did not know.

Pentecost Snippets Part 1

We just celebrated Pentecost Sunday, the day we recognize the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the church. This account is given for us in Acts 2, and over the next few posts I would like to have a few snippets of biblical theology lacing the Scriptures together. This will be easier to read this […]
