Psalm 18:2
‘The LORD is my Rock, my Fortress and my Deliverer; my God is my Rock, in Whom I take refuge.’

Pentecost is a special time for us as believers.  It is a time when we remember that God has done and where it all started.  It is a time to remember how the power and the presence of the Holy Spirit radically changed the world.  It is a time to remember the birth and the founding of the church. It is a time to remind ourselves that the power and the presence of the Holy Spirit is still available to us today.  It is a time to be empowered and filled all over again.  It is a time to step out in boldness.
Pentecost is a time when Christian believers remember and celebrate something unique that happened shortly after the death and the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  It was about 50 days after Easter Sunday, or the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Pentecost means 50th (fiftieth) and is celebrated about 50 days or 7 weeks after Easter.  Having died and risen again, Jesus spent some time on earth and was seen by many people. Then He ascended to heaven and we remember that on Ascension Day.  The followers and disciples of Jesus ended up in an upper room in Jerusalem, praying and fasting, and the Holy Spirit came upon them.  They were changed as a result and went on to change the world.
