Bulletin 

 

Joel 2:28-32

 

 

  1. A distant dream
  2. A definite prophecy and promise
  3. A definitive fulfillment of this prophecy and promise
  4. A delightful result

 

A distant dream…(Joel 2:28a; Numbers 11:27-29) – 

 

A definite prophecy and promise from God (Joel 2:28-29; Ezekiel  36:27; John 14:15-17) 

 

John 16:5-7

 

Acts 2:1-8, 11-18

 

A delightful result of the fulfilled promise and prophecy.

 

Acts 2:37-38

 

The first delightful fruit of the Holy Spirit is faith and repentance.

 

A second delightful result of the Spirit being poured out on God’s people is our witness to Christ.

 

Acts 1:8

 

Nine cases of being filled with the Holy Spirit:

 

The disciples proclaimed Christ (Acts 2).

 

Peters before the Sanhedrin (Acts 4:8). The prayer meeting (Acts 4:31).

 

Deacons were selected by their evidence of being filled with the Spirit (Acts 6:3) and we can infer that the Spirit’s presence was evident in them due to their witness about Jesus.

 

After all, soon after this account, is that of Stephen being stoned to death as he was filled with the Spirit and preached Jesus (Acts. 7:55-56).

 

We see Paul filled and proclaiming Jesus throughout his ministry (Acts 9).

 

John 16:13-14

  

In a day of turmoil, remember that God pours out Spirit in a world of war and crisis and trouble.

 

 Have you believed on Jesus and repented from going your own way?

  

Do you desire to proclaim Jesus where you live, work, and play?

  

Joel 2:32
