As we count down the days to Shavuot, we need to remember what God promised in Acts 2:17-18. It says, “In the last days, I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh.” God wants to empower us to fulfil Jesus end times command “And this gospel will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:14
Shavuot marks the time when the Lord gave instruction to His people at Mount Sinai. It was also when the Holy Spirit came in power to equip and empower us to do the work God requires us to do and to ensure that we stay aligned with Him in His Kingdom purposes.
It is time to prepare your heart for something new as Shavuot approaches. The Holy Spirit wants to do a new thing in your life. He is always doing something new, sadly, so often it is chastening. He can do so much more if we desire more of Him.
Are you ready to receive the new thing?
Let us not forget what Jesus reclaimed for us at Passover. God is ready to move us into new levels. Come receive fresh oil and new wine.
REPENT & ASK
Repentance cleanses you, prepares you to move into new levels of faith. Repent of unbelief, doubt, and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any false teachings that are operating in your life. He is your counsellor, comforter and teacher. Come into agreement with God’s Word, know He is sovereign in all things.
TRUST & OBEY
The words of the old hymn now come to mind “Trust and Obey for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey.”
If you have not already planned to celebrate Shauvot/Pentecost can I suggest you get together with a few of your trusted brothers and sisters in Christ to do so. I am confident He will launch many of you into a new level of service for Him which also means a new level of intimacy with Him.
