THE NEW MAN
And when this sound occurred the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language. Acts 2:6
The very first new creation church of Jesus Christ was birthed at Pentecost with 120 sold out disciples of Christ filled with Holy Spirit power, passion and vision for His mission! After the mighty wind of God produced a spiritual sound from Heaven as of a hurricane, they began to go out into the streets speaking in the languages of those in from out of town!
This is God's model for His church in the earth today, to move out and make disciples of all nations as these young converts were doing. Speaking in tongues the multitudes were amazed and when Peter stood up and preached the gospel they were brought to conviction and 3000 were gloriously saved!
The awesome power of God was poured out that day and continued to spread like wildfire throughout the city with people getting saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit! Imagine 3000 visitors from out of town saved and coming to live with the 120 in common! Able and willing to give all they sold their possessions and provided for all the new converts as they worshiped and praised God for His goodness!
Then Peter said to them, "Repent and let everyone of you be baptized in the name of Jesus for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." Acts 2:38
