Pentecost (Ancient Greek: Πεντηκοστή [ἡμέρα], Pentēkostē [hēmera], “the Fiftieth [day]”) is the Greek name for the Feast of Weeks, a prominent feast in the calendar of ancient Israel celebrating the giving of the Law on Sinai. This feast is still celebrated as Shavuot. Later, in the Christian liturgical year, it is also a feast commemorating the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the twelve Apostles of Christ.

In the Eastern church, Pentecost can also refer to the whole fifty days between Easter and Pentecost, hence the book containing the liturgical texts for Paschaltide is called the Pentecostarion. The feast is also called Whit Sunday, orWhitsun,especially in England, where the following Monday was traditionally a holiday. Pentecost is celebrated seven weeks (50 days) after Easter Sunday, hence its name.[1] Pentecost falls on the tenth day after Ascension Thursday. Among Christians, Pentecost commemorates the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Twelve Apostles and other followers of Jesus as described in the Acts of the Apostles 2:1–31.[2] For this reason, Pentecost is sometimes described by some Christians today as the “Birthday of the Church.” The Pentecostal movement of Christianity derives its name from the New Testament event. Main article: Shavuot Pentecost is the old Greek and Latin name for the Jewish harvest festival, or Festival of Weeks (Hebrew חג השבועות Hag haShavuot or Shevuot, literally “Festival of Weeks”), which can be found in the Hebrew Bible, Shavuot is called the Festival of Weeks (Hebrew: חג השבועות, chag ha-Shavuot, Exodus 34:22, Deuteronomy 16:10 ); Festival of Reaping (Hebrew: חג הקציר, chag ha-Katsir, Exodus 23:16 ), and Day of the First Fruits (Hebrew יום הביכורים, Yom ha-Bikkurim, Numbers 28:26 ).

MAY GOD BLESS BARACK OBAMA WITH A “W”!


Philippians 4:6-8

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things.

Have You Thought about Your Creator Today?


 

Growing & glowing through change…“Do all things without complaining and disputing that you may become blameless and harmless children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.”
-Philippians 2:14-15, NKJV”So many times, we get comfortable and complacent,” said DeVon Franklin, a recent guest on the Hour of Power. “As a studio executive, my job is to help get movies made. And there’s nothing I want more than to read a script and say the script is ready for production. But it’s very frustrating when I look at a script and I have to admit that there is still work to be done. I know that many of you, just like me, when you look in the mirror, you have to acknowledge that there is still work yet to be done.”When we acknowledge that we’re not all that we could be, we sometimes get frustrated with ourselves. Why do we keep tripping over the same sin over and over again? Why can’t we just get it together?

“What God is trying to write in your script is patience and love. He’s saying, ‘Don’t look at yourself and what you see in the mirror. I need you to see yourself the way that I see you. You are a hero. You are victorious. You are a champion. Don’t let the devil use his keyboard to write into your script failure. No, no, no, no, no. I made you perfect. And, yes, I might have to do a rewrite from time to time.'”

Prayer: Heavenly Father, when you’re working in my life, sometimes it’s painful, and I tend to complain. Help me to see how positive it is that you’re growing me through times of uncomfortable change. As I grow, help me to glow; help me to become a bright light in a dark world. Amen.

Reflection: About which part of change do you complain? What could you do other than complaining to improve the situation? To encourage others?
