We wouldn’t bear fruit and we couldn’t effectively witness. So the Holy Spirit is just as essential for God’s plan of salvation now as it was back…
Pentecost is in fulfillment of an Old Testament feast, the giving of the law at Sinai, ritual temple cleansing, the reversal of Babel and every Holy Spirit moment in judges, prophets and kings.

The question is "How can we fulfill this expectation of Jesus Christ for us?" Let's find the answer from John 14:8-17.
