AS FOR THE DESCENDING OF THE HOLY GHOST UPON THE 120 IN THE UPPER ROOM...<quoted text>
N YOUR IGNORANCE OF THE BIBLE YOU WROTE..
Well its a good thing humanities salvation doesn't rest on the interpretations of some old guy with a Bible..
Nor the man-made Pentecostal sect that is about a hundred yrs old.
I POST AGAIN.
Rom 3:3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?
Rom 3:4 God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
AS FOR THE PENTECOSTAL EXPERIENCE..IT IS PROPHESIED .SAY ABOUT 700 YEARS BC.
IT IS OLDER THAN YOU PAGAN RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATION...
THERE IS MORE ABOUT THE PENTECOSTAL EXPERIENCE... IN THE OLD TESTAMENT
THAN THERE IS ABOUT A ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
(OF WHICH THERE IS NONE)
ISAIAH 28:9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts.
Isa 28:10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:
Isa 28:11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.
Isa 28:12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear.
SPIRIT FILLED PEOPLE ATE DESCRIBED IN
Isa 33:19 Thou shalt not see a fierce people,
a people of a deeper speech than
thou canst perceive; of a stammering tongue, that thou canst not
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU POST...
I WARN YOU AGAINST BLASPHEMY OF THE HOLY GHOST...
A SIN OF WHICH THERE IS NO FORGIVENESS...
Mat_12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him:
whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.
JESUS..SAID BEFORE HE ASCENDED
Act 1:8 But ye shall receive ==>power,<==
==>POWER<=== DEFINED IN GREEK AS USED IN ACTS 1:8
δύ ναμ ις
From G1410; force (literally or figuratively); specifically miraculous power (usually by implication a miracle itself):- ability, abundance, meaning, might (-ily,-y,-y deed),(worker of) miracle (-s), power, strength, violence, mighty (wonderful) work.
(NOTE THE GREEK WORD, DUNAMIS.... IS THE ROOT WORD FOR DYNAMITE...EXPLOSIVES)
after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:
Jesus did not say that they should be witnesses of any religious CULT OR organization)
and ye shall be witnesses UNTO ME
both in Jerusalem,
and in all Judaea, and
in Samaria, and unto the
uttermost part of the earth.
(HERE...HE SAID NOTHING ...SPECIFIC... ABOUT ROME...)
ROME WAS INCLUDED IN ACTS 2:10 AS STRANGERS)
Act 2:9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
Act 2:10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene,
and ==>strangers<== of Rome,<---
Jews and proselytes,
Act 2:11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
==>STRANGERS<==OF ROME DEFINED IN GREEK
ἐπ ιδη μέ ω
From a compound of G1909 and G1218; to make oneself at home, that is,(by extension) to reside (in a foreign country):-[be] dwelling (which were) there, stranger.
ROME IS STILL A STRANGER TO THE WORD OF GOD..
