Acts 2:1-4 – When the Day of Pentecost had 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 the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

This summer I am celebrating my spiritual Jubilee. I came to Christ in the summer of 1973 and I am believing the Lord for some amazing breakthroughs during this special season. This Sunday we are celebrating Pentecost Sunday, the day the Holy Spirit began to be poured out on all that believed in the name of Jesus. The name Pentecost literally means fiftieth and took place fifty days after the Passover offering was brought before the Lord. On that first Pentecost Sunday in Jerusalem the Holy Spirit began to be poured out on all who believed. No longer was it just for prophets, priests, or kings; everyone could now receive the Holy Spirit. This connection between Jubilee and Pentecost is interesting to me. Here is how Janette Andrejowich explains it.

“Pentecost is the fourth great celebration (in the Jewish calendar). It is the celebration of the giving of the Holy Spirit to those who accept the sacrifice of Christ. These are the first-fruits of mankind to be resurrected upon the return of Christ, the wheat harvest. Counting 50 days, after the Sabbath of the Passover, is Pentecost. On this Jubilee day, a wheat harvest is celebrated. That Jubilee day mirrors the Jubilee year when the two houses of Israel will be re-united into one kingdom again. The Holy Spirit came and was received by one group of 3,000 people who accepted the sacrifice of Yashuah Hamashiach, Jesus Christ.”

Today, Pentecost is being experienced all over the world. The Holy Spirit is being poured out on all ethnic groups and all age groups. We are living in the fulfillment of Pentecost and Jubilee at the same time. The world is reeling, suffering the birth pangs just before the return of Jesus Christ to this earth. Some of the greatest miracles of all time are about to break in on all of us. I believe this celebration of Pentecost and Jubilee is upon us.
