Scripture: Acts 2:1-4
In Acts 2:1-4, the Day of Pentecost came and everyone there was empowered by the Holy Spirit. They were then charged with establishing a foundation for the New Testament church. That was their assignment and that was their call. But God’s plan did not happen unopposed. It was dramatically opposed on many different fronts. Therefore, for their entire life, they would give themselves to establishing the foundation of the New Testament church. As they wound up the transitional age from the Old Covenant to the New, they produced the theology that would fill the New Testament. Their obedience brought great fruit! “Truth was, in the Old Testament, concealed, and in the New Testament, revealed.” Scripture came alive in their lifetime. How much is revelation a part of our paradigm? Do we have all the revelation we need for our time and season or do we not? Do we know the Jesus they knew? Is there an added dimension to the Jesus that winds up the church age that exceeds the One who began the church age? Are we prepared to recognize the Lord as the times and seasons shift?
