The Day of Pentecost is a day many churches celebrate the descent of the Holy Spirit. We celebrate this day 50 days after the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and the Passover. This day is the celebration God’s mercy on His people, where the angel of death passed over homes of those who were obedient to His word. On this day, Jesus’ promise before His ascension was fulfilled.
The Book of Acts speaks on all of the signs and wonders that comes when receiving the Holy Spirit. In Acts chapter 2, we the remainder of Christs disciples gathered together taking part of the breaking of bread in the Holy Communion.
Their reception of the Holy Spirit in the Upper Room is recounted in Acts 2:1–6:
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other languages, as the Spirit gave them utterance. And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
On this Day of Pentecost, the church was born. So now, we celebrate the day the Comforter came.
