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. (Acts 2:1-4)
Today's Morsel: The Invasion of Normandy, France, by the Allied Forces of Britain, America, Canada, and France on June 6, 1944, to attack German forces on the coast of Normandy, France is called D-Day. With a huge force of over 150,000 soldiers, the allies attacked and gained a victory that became the turning point for World War II in Europe.
But there was another day that is also called D-Day, and that day was the Day of Pentecost. The Holy Ghost was poured out upon the 120 believers in Jerusalem. It was the day the New Testament Church was established. And they went forth preaching the word everywhere with signs following setting the captives free.
Sing: This is the day, this is the day that the Lord hath made, that the Lord hath made; I will rejoice, I will rejoice and be glad in it, and be glad in it. This is the day that the Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be glad in it. This is the day, this is the day that the Lord hath made.
