Why So Many Don't Understand Pentecost

by Leonard V. Johnson

Greetings Everyone! This year’s Pentecost will soon be here – June 4th at sunset until June 5th at sunset. Yet millions of our peoples around the world simply don’t properly understand what this Holy Day truly means!

A great many just simply can’t understand why we – the Church of Jesus Christ Online Ministries and our affiliated churches – observe the Day of Pentecost, let alone all of God’s holy festivals, for that matter. And yes, we too have been “laughed to scorn” – cf. Matthew 9:24 KJV.

King Hezekiah of Judah had discovered that God’s holy days were to be kept – after both the kingdom of Israel and the kingdom of Judah had ceased observing them for a very long time. And the king had sent messengers into the kingdom of Israel, from city to city and even into Ephraim and Manasseh, to teach the people of God’s Holy Days. “But they laughed them to scorn, and mocked them” – 2 Chronicles 30:1-10.

A great many throughout the remnant churches of God just simply observe these festivals because their congregation does, yet DO NOT fully understand why – the true meaning along with GOD’S PLAN in commanding them to be kept.

We can certainly think of the untold millions who each year observe Christmas, New Year’s, Easter, Halloween, Mardi Gras, Día de los Muertos, etc. – holidays that are NOT holy convocations and are abhorrent to God! The LORD our God’s days HAVE MEANING! And God wants us to properly understand this meaning! That’s why He commands us to repeat this meaning every year.

Not To Angels

Now, it is true that God (the great and awesome Elohim – the family of God) placed angels on earth long before He created Adam and Eve. They are spirit beings wholly composed of spirit – not physical matter. Why is it that GOD placed many angels upon this earth!? We find that angels were created long before the earth’s creation. Why!? Why were they placed here!? – cf. Job 1:6; 2:1; 4:18; 38:4-7.

Well, we read in Hebrews 2:5, “For He has not put the world to come, of which we speak, …” – meaning the soon-coming Kingdom of God in subjection to angels.”

Now I personally do not believe that GOD ever had any intention of placing the Kingdom of God under the subjection of angels. GOD truly had – and has – a Master Plan from the very beginning! Humans were NEVER an afterthought.

Angels are a free moral agent. And a man of great wisdom once told us that Godly character – either good or bad character – cannot be instantly created by fiat. GODLY CHARACTER must be developed by experience over time. Cherubims and angels were created with minds that can attain vast knowledge, can think and reason, come to conclusions, and make independent decisions. GOD taught them of HIS GOVERNMENT.

God’s government is based upon His holy, immutable, and relevant LAW – summed up with the TEN COMMANDMENTS. Giving first and foremost a return of the love of God that He gives to all His creatures – in obedience, reverence, worship, in fellowship with God in a close relationship with God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Also, we are told by the apostle Paul that never were the cherubims nor angels ever created to be sons of God –

“For to which of the angels did He [God] ever say: ‘You are My Son, …’ – Hebrews 1:5.

In a sense, cherubims and angels were placed upon the earth to finish its beautification and prepare the earth for mankind.

But Hêlēl – or rather Lucifer the covering cherub, meaning “shining one” – led angels in the opposite direction – at least a third of the angels; Revelation 12:4. The way of vanity, lust, greed, jealousy, envy, wrong competition, strife, violence, chaos, destruction, resentment, bitterness, and rebellion against the Word (see John 1:1; later to be known as Jesus Christ) and His authority over them.

The angels sinned – 2 Peter 2:4. Lucifer and his angels under him set their character as evil. And since Adam too sinned against the LORD our God, rejecting the GOVERNMENT OF GOD, Lucifer has remained the “god of this age” (2 Corinthians 4:4), and will not be removed until a successor qualified to ESTABLISH the Government of God on EARTH (see Genesis 3:15) and to also be inducted into office (see Daniel 7:13-14).


God is Reproducing Himself!

The God family – at this time consisting of God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ – ARE REPRODUCING THEMSELVES!

So, what is to be said of the genetics of God?

In the 1st chapter of Genesis we learn  –

Verse 25 – “Then God [plural in form] said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; …’”

So, notice it does not say, “My image,” it says, “’ Our image, according to Our likeness.’” And God did. Man is in the same form and shape as God. God has two hands, two feet, and five fingers. God has two arms and two legs. God has a mind. Yet, God did not make man of the same composition of which He is composed – Spirit.

So, creating mankind in “Our image,” but out of physical matter – yet needing the Spirit of God. A human being requires the gift of repentance, proper baptism, and hands laid upon them, the gifting of the Holy Spirit, with the help of the LORD God changing to His character. And after this, the mortal human being could, by a resurrection, be changed to wholly spiritual composition, with a holy, righteous, and perfect GODLY CHARACTER – born a child of the LORD God!

So, God formed man not out of spirit, but out of the ground – physical matter. Animals breathe too in and out of their nostrils the breath of life. In other words, what came from the dust of the earth became a soul. And in God’s living word He says “’ Behold, all souls are Mine; The soul of the father As well as the soul of the son is Mine; The soul who sins shall die’” – Ezekiel 18:4, 20. And to this very soul, He stated ‘if you partake of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, “you shall surely die”’ – meaning, the second death spoken of in the Book of Revelation chapter 20, verses 14-15.

I’m sure you’ve read that many times before. But, do you believe what God said!? What God told Adam “You shall surely die’”!?

Now, because of the rebellion of Hêlēl – or rather Lucifer and his demons – physical destruction occurred to the earth! Notice this – Genesis 1:2, “The earth [became] without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep.” And, we’ve covered this many times before – the Hebrew words which our great patriarch and prophet Moses used are tohu and bohu – which truly means “chaotic and in confusion.” God – “in the beginning created the heavens and the earth … And God saw that it was good – Genesis 1:1, 10.

In SIX DAYS God renewed the face of the earth – Psalm 104:30 – for the occupation of mankind.

All the physical known finite universe is created from matter.

Now, I suppose I should say here that I am rather ignorant on the subject of physics, so please, be gentle 😊 But, as I have mentioned before, the law of decay is a real physical law described in mathematical manners that describes the properties of a nuclear atom in a state of decay. The radioactive decay law states that this decay is constant. For if nothing was done about this law of decay, this corruption will ultimately lead to the complete annihilation of the universe. For I refer to a little physics here, the laws of thermodynamics.
  • First Law - Energy cannot be created or destroyed in an isolated system.
  • Second Law - Entropy – or disorder – always increases.
  • Third Law - The entropy of a system approaches a constant value as the temperature approaches heat, and eventual death.
The apostle Paul tells us that this known universe waits for the revealing of the born children of God to stop its decay – “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19) For the earnest expectation of THE CREATION eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 20) For THE CREATION was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it IN HOPE; 21) because THE CREATION itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption [as well as decay] into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22) For we know that THE WHOLE CREATION groans and labors with birth pangs together until now” – Romans 8:18-22.

And this bondage of corruption is exactly what the LORD our God describes in His living word. God the CREATOR of the universe gave mankind the highest possible honor in the created order. His living word describes for us the LORD our God’s glory and dignity which He will give unto His born sons and daughters –

“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, 4) What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? 5) For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor. 6) You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands.” – Psalm 8:3-6.

So, the very Second Law of Thermodynamics surely testifies that EVERYTHING in the known universe is “winding down.” This agrees with the living word of the Eternal One. In who says, “ …’For the heavens will vanish away like smoke, The earth will grow old like a garment, …’” – Isaiah 51:6. The presence of corruption in the known universe DOES NOT contradict God in His overall Plan for His universe. It gives further testimony to the sin of Adam and Eve – see James 1:15.

Le Moustier by Charles R. Knight, 1920

So, in the formation of GODLY CHARACTER, man had to have a mind, to know and to think, to reason, to come to conclusions, and to make choices and decisions. Yet, a question can be asked – what about the Neanderthals!?

Here is something by the renowned Professor Roy Schulz –
Using the general guide provided by the Bible, it is possible to isolate many specific features about the society before the Flood. Consider, first of all, the “giant” of Genesis 6:4. Can they be identified in terms of archaeology and history?

The English word “giants” is used in various places in the Authorized or King James Version of the Bible. It is translated from two original Hebrew words – Rephaim and Nephilim. The Rephaim are mentioned only after the Flood; they were tall men, like [the] Anakim. The term Rephaim [the Moabites calling them Emim] is translated “giants” in Deuteronomy 2:11, 20 and other places; and they are mentioned directly in Genesis 14:5 and 15:20.

However, in the Scripture we are presently concerned with – Genesis 6:4, which is primarily concerned with pre-Flood times – the original is Nephilim. This word nephal means “a feller” – one who fells a tree – or, by extension, one who brings down another because of his unusual strength. The term implies a “tough” or a bully, an individual of great physical might. Nephilim, then, were shorter, very stocky, and had tremendous power! In other words, they were giants in strength but not in tallness of stature. The point of emphasis here is that the word Nephilim does not require tallness as part of its definition! Any men of unusual height who existed prior to the Flood were distinct from the Nephilim.

In the history of ancient Europe, archaeologists have defined three basic cultural zones – Lower, Middle, and Upper Paleolithic. Now the Middle Paleolithic, which occurs well within the story of early human history, was the cultural zone of the famous Neanderthals. Now the Neanderthals were squat, stocky, powerful human beings! In short, the descriptions of the Nephilim and of the Neanderthals match perfectly! They are one and the same!

(Schulz, R., EXPLORING ANCIENT HISTORY -- THE FIRST 2500 YEARS, Social Studies Department Imperial Schools at Pasadena, Ca. 1967 – underlining and italics added for emphasis).
To give mortal man this mind power, God placed within humans a spirit that imparts intellect to the human brain – cf. 1 Corinthians 2:11. Many animals have brains larger than humans. And, not long ago I watched on television “Blackfish” – which certainly tugged at the strings of my heart, showing us point-blank that orcas have emotions too! Of course, the debate in this world whether animals have intellect is hotly debated. But, as an example: a young man meets a young woman. They are immediately attracted to one another. They both say to themselves, “Now there is someone I’d like to marry.” At that point, if emotions alone (or for that matter, according to Colonel Sanders of the movie The Waterboy, the medulla oblongata) had its way, there would be a wedding. But the intellect intervenes, questioning the impulsive emotional response. Do animals have will!? Meaning, are they willing to give up a lifestyle for another? Are they willing to assume the added responsibility!? Are they a free moral agent!? – No. They lack a spirit that imparts powers of intellect.

Yet – and I’ve covered this before – this human spirit (Job 32:8-9) does not see – the brain sees through our eyes. The brain hears through our ears, etc. Knowledge is stored in the human spirit, working like this computer storing instant recall for thinking. But the spirit is not the man – only something added. It is capable of receiving and storing knowledge only through the human brain and therefore confined ONLY to physical knowledge. Also, the spirit does not impart human life. Our life resides in our blood.

It is the Holy Spirit of God that imparts spiritual understanding – the love of God, the faith of Christ, and the power to overcome sin.


Are you aware that the LORD our God creates in a process of duality!? As an example: the creation of mankind began in a physical creation. This means that there’s a physical and then there’s a spiritual creation of mankind. The physical creation began some 6,000 years ago in the creation of Adam and Eve. But the spiritual creation actually began nearly 1,989 years ago in Jesus Christ!

That is the ultimate stage of mankind’s creation. And that is the stage that is going on now. And it has a lot to do with why I’m writing this up as well as why you are reading this right now all around the United States of America and around the world.

So, the LORD God is calling us brethren. And He has called only those that He is going to use in the ESTABLISHMENT of His GOVERNMENT on earth – the formation of the kingdom of God. God has called us to reveal knowledge to us, to make us His government, and to see if we will obey Him and His immutable and relevant LAW.


And I want to take a moment and pause here, because I’ve been speaking this morning with a dear Brother in Christ, via Facebook Messenger, and I want to remind us of just why we were called in this age having to contend with and overcome Satan the devil. Because the Lord our God has a MOST IMPORTANT purpose in calling us now, instead of later.

IMAGINE THIS! There are more than 7,949,643,016 human beings on earth today! Yet, of this vast sea of humanity, the Lord our God in our very own time has called and placed within the Church of Jesus Christ only a few. The others will be called later – most not in this age.

But why were you called now!?

Comparatively speaking, Father God has been calling almost NONE in this age!

This article is on Pentecost – how many of us, brethren, have become unmindful of the MEANING of the Feast of Firstfruits!? How many of us have become unmindful of the purpose for which God the Father has called us and placed us within the Church of Jesus Christ NOW! – After all, it’s His Church – cf. Matthew 16:18 – ahead of others!?

The Day of Pentecost is called in God’s living word the Feast of Firstfruits. We, brethren, are merely the first minute (pronounced mī - noot) preliminary HARVEST of God’s children.

Also, how many of us in this 21st-century world have become unmindful of God’s purpose – and just assume that we were called and placed within Jesus Christ’s Church ONLY for our personal salvation!? But what about the estimated Billions upon Billions that have died since the beginning of creation, and have never been called!? For, except the Father call them, none could come to our Lord Jesus Christ! He says so!

The greater majority in this “Christian” world just suppose that Jesus the Christ came to earth to “save the world,” or to “start a soul-winning campaign.” They assume that our Lord God started a religion to try and convert the whole world. And they truly believe this – that’s one of the main reasons why the Jehovah’s Witnesses knock on your front door! They believe this is THE “day of salvation” – and that this is the ONLY age in which humanity may be “saved.”

They interpret wrongly the apostle Paul’s teaching –

“(For He says, ‘In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you.’ Behold, now is an acceptable time. Behold, now is a day of salvation)” – 2 Corinthians 6:2 NET. {1}

Apostle Paul rightly contributed this to what our Lord Jesus Christ stood up and announced: “ …’ To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD’” – Luke 4:19.

The greater majority of the unlearned insist and argue that it says, “now is THE day of salvation.” And they misconstrue it to mean that this is the ONLY time when God is trying to convert and “save” the world.

Apostle Paul’s quote is from Isaiah 49:8, where it reads, “Thus saith the LORD, In an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee …” not “the day.”

Turning to the Book of Romans in the 11th chapter it becomes even clearer. There were some who were saying that God had cast away His people Israel, but the apostle Paul clarifies their mistake. Paul reminds them that there was in the mid-first century a minute few that had received the loving grace of God – compared to the some 200 million.

“What then? Israel has not obtained what it seeks; but the elect have obtained it, and the rest were blinded. 8) Just as it is written: ‘God has given them a spirit of stupor, Eyes that they should not see And ears that they should not hear, To this very day’ – Romans 11:7-8.

So, when our Lord Jesus Christ comes, the whole world is going to be called! They won’t be cut off from God anymore. It won’t be that God the Father calls only those He wants for say – a special mission. But – and I want you to understand this – they are not going to qualify to sit with Christ on His throne, as we must. They won’t have to overcome Satan the devil, we do! It’s IMPORTANT that you understand this! Again, today is not God’s time of trying to “save” the world!

We, brethren, are called the Firstfruits. And we are called for a very special job – a special calling. We are called now to learn the living WORD OF GOD, THE TRUTH OF GOD, and the ULTIMATE PLAN OF GOD. To learn the gospel Message which our Lord Jesus brought from God the Father, and which is recorded for us in the writings of the New Testament, along with the Old Testament. Recall our Lord Jesus says, “ …’ hold fast what you have till I come. 26) And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations – ‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; …’” And we, brethren, have to learn how to do that. As an example – if you were ruling with a rod of iron, what would you do to a radical Islamic state that commits heinous atrocities against humanity, and abhors and rejects Jesus Christ!? What Would Jesus Do!? Well, we have to learn how now, and we have to learn about God’s Government, how He governs, and how God teaches. And how God teaches us to live, and His Way of life.

Our Lord Jesus Christ came and preached the good news of the glorious kingdom of God, the establishment of the Government of God on this earth. And this is one of the most important things to God at this moment. Because it is the basis of the development of GODLY CHARACTER and for the LORD our God’s ultimate overall purpose for the whole of His universe.

We say to you so that the Spirit of God will come to you – “ … ‘Come!’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come!’ And let him who thirsts come. WHOEVER desires, let him take the water of life freely.” – Revelation 22:17.

But, the Holy Spirit had not yet come, at that time. Because our Lord Jesus Christ had not yet been glorified. And God the Father did call some to our Lord. Jesus says that no one can come to Him unless the Father draws him. And Father did begin to draw some – in fact, only 120 had been drawn within the whole 3 ½ years of His ministry. On the Day of Pentecost, the Spirit of God came and entered into those 120.

Also, in Acts chapter 2 we read that there were many others from around the nations on the Day of Pentecost, and the apostle Peter standing up with the eleven raised his voice and said to them, “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” They were convicted in heart, because many came to realize that they were the ones who had the Savior of mankind murdered – or at least, had caused it. They asked, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” The apostle Peter answered, “REPENT, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” And that day about THREE THOUSAND were converted.

So then, NO ONE can come to our Lord Jesus Christ! God the Father has cut others off from Him. Why!? Most people think it’s man cutting themselves off from God. No, God has cut Himself off from man. Most people will say, “This isn’t fair.” The LORD our God has not given them any chance at conversion – yet. He hasn’t given them any chance of salvation – yet. Again, most will say, “That’s not fair.” Why is it that the LORD our God gives some a chance and others not!? Well, He gives us the answer –

“And He said to them, ‘To you [the disciples and to those whom God the Father will call afar off (Acts 2:39)] it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside all things come in parables, 12) so that, ‘SEEING THEY MAY SEE AND NOT PERCEIVE [or be aware or conscious of], AND HEARING THEY MAY HEAR AND NOT UNDERSTAND; Lest they should turn [repent], And their sins be forgiven them.’ – Mark 4:11-12.

The apostle Paul teaches us that there is no partiality with God – Romans 2:11. The reason that the LORD our God has drawn some, as I stated earlier, is to prepare for the kingdom of God. And I want you to get this: He is not drawing them to just save them. NEARLY EVERYONE will eventually be drawn unto salvation in the end.

But – as I asked earlier – what about the estimated Billions upon Billions that have died since the beginning of creation, and have never been called!?


God’s Master Plan – Involving Pentecost

We, brethren, are only the FIRSTFRUITS. And we are represented by the Day of Pentecost in the LORD our God’s annual Holy Day – just the first harvest. And we who are called now certainly have to overcome this evil present age, ourselves, and Satan the devil.

Truly, only a relatively few people on this Earth in this 21st century know and understand God’s Master Plan. And His Master Plan is given and unfolded before us through His seven annual Holy Days and the seven annual festivals. (Yes, there are SEVEN commanded holy convocation days of rest, other than the weekly Sabbath – 1st and last day of Unleavened Bread, Pentecost, and the four holy days that occur in the seventh month of the year.) And there are relatively only a few on this Earth in this 21st century that actually observes them properly.

The LORD our God began to reveal this to me some forty-one years ago now. I found out that they are binding forever, and that they were observed by our Lord Jesus Christ and the original apostles along with the New Testament Church of God.

Now, most who profess Christ know something about Pentecost. Many properly consider it the beginning of the New Testament Church of God.

The apostles were told to wait in Jerusalem to receive the power of the Holy Spirit –

“And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, ‘which,’ He said, ‘you have heard Me; 5) for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.’” – Acts 1:4-5.

So, they waited. And –

“When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.” – Acts 2:1.

Notice it was when the Day of Pentecost had fully come. The Bible is clear that the events that follow were directly related to the fact that the Day of Pentecost had fully come. And the apostles were all observing it together.

Here is what happened –

“And suddenly there came a sound from heaven [the sky], as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3) Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4) And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues [languages], as the Spirit gave them utterance.” – Acts 2:2-4.

They received some of the power of God’s Spirit. The Roman Catholics, the Eastern Orthodox, the greater majority of Protestants, the Jehovah’s Witnesses, and the Church of God all believe that this was the beginning of the New Testament Church of God. And rightly so. The Holy Spirit (be sure to watch “The Truth Concerning the Trinity Explained” which Facebook tried to ban) was gifted at a certain time (the same time that many Jews observed Pentecost).

That was not a coincidence.

Many may not realize that Pentecost pictures more than just the gifting of the Holy Spirit and the beginning of the New Testament Church of God.

Minister Michael C. Garrett has this to say concerning the Day of Pentecost –
“Christ In You! … we must have God’s Spirit which is represented by the Feast of Pentecost. And so, individual salvation – that Plan is given to us in the Spring Holy Days. … The Spring Holy Days are a continuum. What happens in Passover and Unleavened Bread, and down as you get into the Feast of Pentecost – a continuous series of events that are all interrelated and intertwined. And the same thing is true with the Fall Holy Days. …

Just a quick perusal, turn to Acts 2 – the account of where we read about the Day of Pentecost – when God for the first time pours out His Spirit in mass on human beings. Now keep in mind there had been multiple times throughout biblical history where God indeed had given His Spirit to servants and prophets of God. But here on this day, on A.D. 31, something very special happened. And, we won’t read every Scripture here, but let’s go to verse 21 of Acts chapter 2 – “’ And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD [the Lord Jesus Christ] Shall be saved.’” Verse 22 – “Men of Israel [and you men of the different organizations which want to be a part of the kingdom of God and wish to pursue the teachings of this Bible], hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know – 23) Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you have taken …” this is Peter speaking to the men, some of which have called for His death. Some of which, just a few days before – a month-and-a-half before – were chanting ‘Crucify Him! Crucify Him! Crucify Him!’ And yet, here, Peter says, “by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death; 24) whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He [Jesus Christ] should be held by it …” - isn’t that a beautiful concept!? Jesus Christ walked out of the tomb! And by that He established a pattern, and an example that someday all of us who is called His sisters and brothers, His friends, will someday have the same opportunity!! If we die before the return of Jesus Christ we too will walk out of our graves! I love that thought!

Verse 38 – listen carefully to what Peter says – this is an extremely well-known and recited verse; this is a foundational Scripture that all of us need to know about, think about, and appreciate. And give thanks to Jesus Christ because it’s in the Book! The reality of it – it is true! “Then Peter said to them, ‘Repent, …’” – what does the word repent mean!? It means simply change your ways. Change your direction. Change your focus. Change your goals. Change your motivation. “…’ Repent, and let every one of you be baptized…’” – and listen to this next part – “…’ in the name of Jesus Christ …’” – no other name. No other name under heaven, on earth, anywhere in the universe by which you could be saved. “’ Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ …’” – that wonderous, glorious name and title! Jesus, the Anointed One! Jesus, the Messiah! Jesus, the Savior! And if you do you will have your sins forgiven “…’ and you shall receive the gift of [God’s] Holy Spirit.’”

So, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ said that only a minute few are chosen – Matthew 22:14. So this smaller harvest will be made up of the relatively few brethren who are truly submitting and obeying God TODAY.

The vast majority of our peoples who have ever lived or will ever live will have their opportunity for eternal salvation during the Millennium and the “Great White Throne Judgment,” of which the Feast of Tabernacles and the Last Great Day picture. This is considered the great fall festival.

Sadly, to the majority of this world, the Day of Pentecost remains a mystery. But you are being given a chance to understand now. This holy day of Pentecost represents your chance in God’s Master Plan.

Again, a glorious meaning of the holy Day of Pentecost: “Blessed and holy is he who has part in the FIRST RESURRECTION. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of [God the Father] and of [Jesus Christ], and shall reign with Him a thousand years” – Revelation 20:6.

One of the amazing meanings of the glorious Day of Pentecost is now revealed to you. What is your next move going to be!? □

{1} Editor's Note: The NETBible Tagger, Provided by bible.org even has this interpreted wrong. My NET Bible Version - A Faithful Version with Commentary rightly has this verse translated " ... now is a day of salvation."
