50th Day of Meditation Thought by Overseer Nathaniel Braswell

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. And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

Jesus Christ, before his ascension, instructed the disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the promise of the Father, which was the sending of the Holy Spirit. In John chapter 14 and verse 16, Jesus said I would pray to the father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he might abide forever. After walking with the disciples forty days Jesus ascended into the Heavens and the next ten days, the disciples were in the upper all on one accord in prayer waiting for the promise, knowing All the promises of God are yea and in him amen which means that it’s going to happen. Then after ten days of waiting in the upper room, the Holy Ghost came and filled the house, and they all began to speak with other tongues as the spirit gave utterance. This is the power that was promised as far back as the book of Joel chapter 2 and 28a which said and it shall come to pass afterward, that I would pour out my spirit upon all flesh had arrived, the day of Pentecost had fully come, right in Jerusalem.  The disciples were now equipped with the indwelling power of the Holy Ghost to go and witness about Jesus Christ and his resurrection. We all have prayed and fasted over these past fifty days, but now are we ready to stand bold and proclaim the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Ghost. As Peter stood bold and preached the gospel, after being filled, let us also walk in this power. We can no longer allow the enemy to hinder our walk, to stop our deliverance and to keep us bound, but by the power that God has given to all of us walk in your purpose. thank God for the Holy Ghost
