The Prophets Of Pentecost

The second chapter of the book of Acts begins with the Holy Spirit descending upon the twelve apostles on the day of Pentecost. Pentecost was one of three annual pilgrimage festivals of the Jews in which "all your men shall appear before the Lord" in Jerusalem (Exod 34:22–23). As recorded in the second chapter of Acts, Peter's sermon was the first sermon ever preached in the name of our risen Lord!

The Pentecost referred to in Acts 2:1 was the first one after the death, burial, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ. It was one of the most important days in human history! It was on this Pentecost our Lord was crowned at the Father's right hand, and His Kingdom was established upon this earth—it was also the time when the terms of Divine pardon were first made known unto men. This was the day that Old Testament prophets like Joel, Isaiah, Daniel, and David had looked forward to and prophesied about.

As Peter ended his sermon on the day of Pentecost, he said, "Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ" (Acts 2:36). When Jesus Christ arose from the grave, ascended into heaven, and was seated on David's throne at God's right hand, the inaugural ceremonies of heaven were held. Amid the shout of a myriad of angels, the Son of David and the Son of God took His seat at the right hand of the Majesty on high, to reign until the time that death, the last enemy, is destroyed. When death is abolished by the resurrection of all the dead, Christ will surrender the reign of His government, relinquish His throne, and deliver His kingdom back to His Father (1 Cor 15:25–26).

The events of Acts two were not an accident. Throughout the centuries, God had spoken through His servants, the prophets, concerning the events that would transpire on that day. The same plan of salvation that Peter taught on the day of Pentecost is what faithful gospel preachers will proclaim today.
