Women at Pentecost

Read about the women at Pentecost! At the ascension of Jesus He commanded His close followers to stay in Jerusalem until they received the Promise of the Father, women were included in this select group.

Acts 1:12-14. Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey. And when they had entered, they went up into the upper room where they were staying: Peter, James, John, and Andrew; Philip and Thomas; Bartholomew and Matthew; James the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot; and Judas the son of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers.

Here we see that Mary the mother of Jesus and ‘the women’ were in the upper room carrying on the ministry of Jesus. The women were there on the Day of Pentecost and were filled with the Holy Spirit and Fire and went out into the streets sharing Jesus with the men! Women don’t have to take a backseat to men in the ministry of Jesus! Glory. The women received the ‘same’ baptism of the Holy Spirit that the men did! The women received the ‘same’ prophesying that the men did! The women received the ‘same’ outpouring of the Holy Spirit and prophesying that the men did! Awesome and true! Find another excuse but don’t blame Jesus or the Father or the Holy Spirit.

Acts 2:14-18. But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words. “For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. “But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘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. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy.

So what will you let Jesus do in your life?

God bless you as you serve Him.
