Holy Spirit Comes & Rescue Squad Begins

Rescue Squad Empowered

Jesus told them to go back to Jerusalem and to wait for the power. So 120 people waited in an upper room in a prayer meeting that lasted 10 days, and then the power came.

When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, 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, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

—Acts 2:1-4 NKJV

The Spirit of God came from Heaven and filled the 120 people. Jesus' friend, Peter, boldly preached to those who had crucified Jesus:

17 ‘ And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.'

 

21 'And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.’
 
22 “Men of Israel, 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 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 should be held by it.

 

36 “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”

 

37 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?”
38 Then Peter said to them, “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. 39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”

—Acts 2:17, 21-24, 36 NKJV

And that day 3,000 people gladly heard, believed, and were baptized. And this was the beginning of the church, those rescued from evil to rescue others.
