THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,

- The Empowerment of the Church on the Day of Pentecost -

***"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 GHOST, and began to speak with

other tongues, as the

Spirit gave them utterance (Acts 2:1-4 KJV)."***

How Man Worshiped God in This Time of The 2nd Temple

 

(Photo above: The 2nd Temple Model at the Israel Museum, showing the southern retaining wall & SOUTHERN STEPS of the Temple Mount. The real steps and the area in front of them were  covered over with centuries of dirt until the return of Jerusalem to Jewish control in the 1967 6-Day War. Also excavated were mikvot, multiple ritual cleansing pits, in front of the Steps, that filled with spring water that people were to use before entering the Temple area. When uncovered, scholars rethought where the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost occurred - "the house" being not the upper room, but the "House of God", the Temple. The  mikvot would have made possible the water baptism of the 3000 people, who had gotten saved by the preaching of an empowered Peter.)

 

 

"Fire & Holy Ghost 2nd Temple"

Before Pentecost:

***"John...saying unto them all, 'I indeed baptize you with water; but One mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: He shall baptize you with the HOLY GHOST and with FIRE'

(Luke 3:16 KJV)..."***

 

***"...[The Pre-Ascended Jesus] commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, 'which', saith He, 'ye have heard of Me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the HOLY GHOST not many days hence...ye shall receive POWER [TO WITNESS], after the HOLY GHOST is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me, both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth (Acts 1:4-8)."***
