Pentecost is so much more than about an historical event. Or, the birthday of a church. The dove is a symbol only.
The coming to earth of the 3rd Person of the Trinity heralded the joyful response to Christ’s Promise ‘It is to your advantage that I go to be with My Father,,,,,,Then the Holy Spirit can come to be with you. FOREVER. I will send Him. John 16;7
Christ now is IN all who accept the Saviour and His Promise to never leave us.
WHY a trinitarian GOD, three Persons ONE HOLY RIGHTEOUS GOD.? Because HE IS LORD GOD OF ALL. The Heavens above. On the earth seen as redeeming SAVIOUR so human souls can have an eternity. Follow ME, and in the entirety of the spirit/ghost/demon world, we cannot see, HE is seen as LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.
God the HOLY Spirit’s purpose is to give empowerment to Christ’s followers, so with courage they can face the world. HE IS Wisdom and points always to Christ and the written TRUTH IN the word.
The old statement I Have heard in the past is so true in 2022.
ALL SPIRIT and no or limited WORD folks blow up.
ALL WORD and no SPIRIT folks dry up. Academic and Knowledge about GOD BUT….
The FULLNESS OF TRINITY and GUIDANCE, BALANCE
WORD and SPIRIT….. we Grow up into the People of God we are meant to be.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
