Counting the Omer: Day 48 (Two More Days to Pentecost)

“But you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now” (Acts 1:5).

“Therefore thus says the Lord [to Jeremiah]: If you return [and give up this mistaken tone of distrust and despair], then I will give you again a settled place of quiet and safety, and you will be My minister” (Jer. 15:19 AMPC).

The Greater the Trust, the Greater the Outpouring

Pentecost is this weekend. By now, most Christians know that the Lord has been focusing our attention this year not just on Passover, but on Pentecost as well. Some have said that perhaps this Pentecost will be the most important of our times and the ushering in of great end-time harvest!

The very first Pentecost was at Mt. Sinai where God gave them the law and entered into covenant with them. Yes, He had rescued them from slavery/bondage at Passover, but at Mt. Sinai at that first Pentecost, He became their God and they His people. Then comes the first Pentecost after Jesus was resurrected, as described in Acts 1–2. The power of the Holy Spirit was poured upon His people. The church was born as the people exploded with the power, joy, and the presence of the Lord.

In the early 1900s came the famous Azusa Street outpouring in Los Angeles. The baptism of the Holy Spirit for every believer was rediscovered. This movement spread quickly around the world and kept transforming—into the healing and deliverance revival in 1947, the charismatic renewal of the 1970s, and then the prophetic and apostolic restoration movements from the 1990s and extending until today.

In all of these, the message is more or less the same. Every single believer needs the transforming power and presence of the Holy Spirit. And we believe that the Lord wants us to have great anticipation for what He will pour out this particular Pentecost season.

The Measure of Outpouring We Receive Is Connected to Our Trust in Him

Above all, God wants us to trust in Him. He will go to great lengths to show us again and again that we can absolutely rely on Him. Thus in the forty-nine days between the first Passover and first Pentecost on Mt Sinai, He did miracle after miracle for the Israelites. Unfortunately, they never learned to trust. So even though the law was given to all, and they all entered into covenant, one might say that only Moses, Aaron, Joshua, and Caleb received anointing, revelation, and fullness.

It was different at the Pentecost in the book of Acts. All of the 120 in the upper room were filled to overflowing. It quickly spread out into the streets and the day ended with 3000 new believers. Why so different? Perhaps it was because they had learned to trust. Jesus spent forty days with them, reiterated the promise of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8), and then left them alone for ten days. They obeyed. They kept waiting on the Lord. But remember that they were in difficult circumstances. The Jewish leaders were against them and had paid off the soldiers to spread rumors that the resurrection was a fake.

But instead of worrying about the Pharisees or worrying about the future, they kept their eyes on the Lord. He did something very, very special and the Holy Spirit was poured out mightily on them.

Just today during MPP, the Lord spoke to us from the life of Jeremiah. He was so discouraged by circumstances and people opposing him. He began to doubt, and thus God spoke, saying: “Therefore thus says the Lord [to Jeremiah]: If you return [and give up this mistaken tone of distrust and despair], then I will give you again a settled place of quiet and safety, and you will be My minister” (Jer. 15:19).

So in these very few remaining days to Pentecost, keep asking the Lord to help you trust. Whenever you notice doubt of the goodness of God for you and every situation settling in, keep repenting and returning to Him. Trust Him. Let Him do a new thing!

Thanks so much for praying!
