Love Reigns In Pentecost

Dr. Richard L. Hamm

God’s great love is so awesome and it has been demonstrated to you in so many ways and so many times. His promises made to you are “yea and amen.” They have blessed you and kept you as you have navigated your way through life. One of the greatest promises He made to you is that, “He would never leave you, fail you, or forsake you (Heb 13:5) and that He would go with you always even to the end of the age” (Matt 28:20). To fulfill this promise, Jesus had to ascend back to the Father and He said, “But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper/Comforter will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you (John 16:7). “I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper/Comforter, that He may be with you forever; 17 that is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you and will be in you. 18 “I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you” (John 14:16-18). Jesus did ascend back to His Father and ten days later the mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the “Day of Pentecost” took place. This promise is for you today as well. Jehovah God has sent His Holy Ghost, whose power is greater than all the powers: “He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). God’s love reigns through Pentecost.
