"POST" Pentecost DAY, 2020 page
John 4:20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
John 4:21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, BELIEVE ME, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, Worship the Father.
John 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: WE KNOW what we worship: for SALVATION is of the Jews.
John 4:23 But the Hour Cometh, and "NOW IS", when the TRUE Worshippers shall Worship the Father in Spirit and in TRUTH: for the Father Seeketh such to Worship Him.
John 4:24 GOD [is] a Spirit: and they that Worship Him must Worship [him] in Spirit and in TRUTH.
In these Modern Days, On Pentecost DAY on April 7th, In the Year of Our Lord 2020,
The Time Zones are from East to West, And so does that "Rushing Mighty HOLY Wind" Blow from the East side of Heaven towards the West side of Heaven on "Pentecost DAY."
Act 2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from Heaven as of a Rushing Mighty Wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
Throughout the World, starting from the Eastern Time Zones, and ending at the End of the Western Time Zones, at that solar 3rd Hour of the Day, The Holy Wind would have landed
on the Servants and Maidens of the Most High LORD…..disciples, and Saints, and devout Worshipers of Jesus Christ and GOD the Father. "Suitably, to them WHO KNEW it was Pentecost DAY", or "Suitably, to them that KNEW NOT it was Pentecost DAY."
Keep in mind, the Very Beginning (start) of the Lord Jesus Christ's Church was "AT THAT" Pentecost DAY, AND the first Spiritual Gift by the Holy Spirit needed to be used, was Speaking in Tongues.
The Acts 2 chapter below, I omitted Unreverent Verses in order to "cut to the chase" to point out,…. that starting the LORD's First Church was done by "Signs and Wonders," done by the 12 disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ by them communicating forth "The WORD of the Lord" in the dialect of those foreign Jew's [place of origin](birth). It makes perfect sense to me, that Jesus would want to convert those who received the Written Letter of the Law written on Stone first. Did Jesus not say---> John 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews……and was not Jesus Christ sent by the Father of the Jews to become a "Supernatural Sacrifice" to make that pathway for them…. Jesus being the essentiality of the "Reformation" needed to take place, for them to achieve that Greater Glorious Life that a Jew knowingly knows will come and awaits.. "Intentions of the Heart" of a Jew cannot be hid from the Truther Jews among themselves.
The author of the "Letter to the Hebrews" was the Ultimate Pharisee, who had reason to boast as a Pharisee and even greater reasons to boast as a Apostle, and only to put in their place those who thought they had reason to boast as self-righteous Apostles.
Reason Saul was recruited by the Lord Jesus Christ ---> Zeal to take orders and do as ordered by his Pharisee Leaders and concerning the LAW --->Philippians 3:6 Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. <--- Let there be NO Question as to why the Lord Jesus Christ Recruited the 3rd Generation Pharisee Saul.
…Who became the Ultimate Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ. Who knew ahead of time that he would Suffer Greatly for the Lord Jesus Christ and for the Preaching of the Gospels to the Gentiles and Heathens.
[NKJV] Hebrews 9:8 the Holy Spirit indicating this, that the way into the Holiest of All was not yet made manifest while the first tabernacle was still standing.
Hebrews 9:9 It [was] symbolic for the present time in which both gifts and sacrifices are offered which cannot make him who performed the service perfect in regard to the conscience--
Hebrews 9:10 [concerned] only with foods and drinks, various washings, and fleshly ordinances imposed until the time of reformation.
Again I repeat myself below, I omitted Unreverent Verses in order to "cut to the chase" to point out,…. that starting the LORD's First Church was done by "Signs and Wonders," done by the 12 disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ by them communicating forth "The WORD of the Lord" in the dialect of those foreign Jew's [place of origin](birth).
There after the "Signs and Wonders", Peter took charge of the Preaching, as the First Leader of the Church, and did so during that same 3rd solar Hour of the day (that Hour was the Prayer Hour).
