What did the Apostles do on the day of Pentecost?

[Acts 2:4–6] Christ told His Apostles on Pentecost that He would send His Holy Spirit, and on Pentecost, they were given the Holy Spirit's gifts. The Apostles began preaching the Gospel in all of the languages spoken by the Jews assembled there, and over 3,000 individuals were converted and baptism that day. They also prayed for people to be saved, and the first Christians were baptized.

After the initial excitement of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the Church needed time to grow and become organized. So the apostles decided to go away from Jerusalem for some time until the number of believers increased. During this period, the Church was led by various leaders called "apostles". These included Paul, who was not one of the 12 original disciples but was instead a Pharisee named Saul who had been blinded by Jesus' enemies and was restored to sight after he had met Jesus on the road to Damascus. Paul became one of the most important leaders in the early Church and is credited with writing many parts of the New Testament. He died on his way to Rome to visit the Christians there, and was buried on the island of Malta.

After about three years, the Holy Spirit again moved the Church to act, and this time they went back to Jerusalem where they started churches in its vicinity. This movement resulted in more than 500 new members of the Church joining together in these communities for worship and service.

What did the Apostles do with the Holy Spirit?

They were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in various languages as the Spirit empowered them to declare. The Holy Spirit then went about doing what He does today through Christians' lives.

The apostles continued to preach the gospel where Jesus had sent them and healed people by laying hands on them. They also prayed for those who were sick and anointed those who were afflicted with diseases. The list goes on and on- the Bible is full of examples of the Holy Spirit's work through His people.

In conclusion, the Apostles carried out the will of God the Father and Son during their time on earth. They taught everyone who would listen about Jesus Christ and changed many hearts and minds toward Him. Jesus chose them first and gave them power and authority over demons, and later they passed this authority on to other believers.

It is important to understand that the Holy Spirit works through humans. It is not that the Spirit resides within humans and wakes up at times to act but rather that humans make space for the Spirit to work through them. The Spirit uses our words, actions, and feelings to accomplish His will in this world.

As Christians, our role is to make this world a better place by serving others and leading them to Christ.

What do Pentecostals believe about the Day of Pentecost?

1-4 explain the event: On the day of Pentecost, they were all gathered in one location. And then a sound like a strong rushing wind came from heaven, filling the entire house where they were seated. Pentecostals believe in the Holy Spirit's baptism, as proven by speaking in tongues. The spirit led them all to leave what they were doing and go into foreign countries where there were no churches - yet. They preached the gospel where ever they went and many people were saved.

5 explains why we celebrate on the day of Pentecost: It is because Jesus Christ gave his disciples the gift of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. He poured out his Spirit upon those who believed in him during that time. Now, almost 1500 years later, we still receive the Holy Spirit when we believe in Jesus Christ!

6 states that there are three gifts of the Holy Spirit today just like there were on that first day of Pentecost: 1 Prophecy. 2 Tongues. 3 Healing. We also need to realize that not everyone who claims to have the spirit will indeed be able to speak in tongues or do other miraculous things. Only those who are filled with the spirit will be able to do these things.

7 explains that anyone who believes in Jesus Christ can receive the Holy Spirit: Yes, anyone who believes in Jesus Christ for salvation can receive the Holy Spirit.

What effects did the Holy Spirit have on the Apostles at Pentecost?

What were the effects of the Holy Spirit on the apostles at Pentecost? They were granted the gift of tongues and miraculously found themselves speaking to the throng, everyone hearing in their own tongue form among the numerous travelers gathering in Jerusalem for Pentecost. The apostles were empowered by the Spirit to carry out his work, which included preaching to all nations and baptizing people who accepted Jesus as their Savior.

Today's Christians experience the same effects from the Holy Spirit that the early church leaders experienced. He gives them wisdom with which to live their lives daily. He also helps them carry out their tasks by giving them strength and courage when necessary. Last but not least, the Spirit leads them into all truth.

These are just some of the many gifts that God has given to us through the intervention of the Holy Spirit. As we follow Jesus' example and allow him to guide us through prayer, we can expect to receive all these blessings too.
