Through the baptism of the Holy Spirit, we are empowered, united and commissioned.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a gift to every Christian today.
Born in 1866.
Thomas came from a poor family.
Because his family was poor, he could only go to a rural school.
Then at 16 years old, he became the teacher of the rural school.
He only received primary school education.
By 21 years old, he became the associate editor of his hometown weekly newspaper, The Franklin Advocate.
­
When Henry Clay Morrison, founder of Asbury College and Bible school , came to Franklin for a Revival in 1893, Chisholm attended in order to report on the revival for the paper.
He got more than he had planned when he accepted Jesus into his heart and would follow Christ for the rest of his life.
Today is Pentecost Sunday.
With his background as associate editor of The Franklin Advocate, Later, Morrison invited Chisholm to move to Louisville, Kentucky.
Once there he became the editor of The Pentecostal Herald.
His dream was to serve God in full time ministry.
How many of you are Pentecostals?
[raise hands] How many of you know you are Pentecostals?
[raise hands] How many of you don’t know and don’t care?
Don’t raise your hands.
So in 1903, he became an ordained Methodist Minister.
But due to poor health, he was forced to resign.
He then moved to New Jersey and began selling life insurance, while remaining active in his local church.
He suffered from health issues the rest of his life.
There were periods of time he was confined to bed and unable to work.
We are Pentecostals and we are a Pentecostal church.
Due to ill health, Chisholm was only able to serve one year in the ministry.
After leaving his ministry in Scottsville, Kentucky he and his wife relocated to Winona Lake, Indiana for the open air.
After a time in Indiana, he then moved to Vineland, New Jersey where he sold insurance.

For the rest of Chisholm’s life, he would suffer from health issues.

So what is Pentecost?
Why should we celebrate Pentecost?
What does Pentecost mean for you and I today?

He sometimes described himself as, “Just an old shoe.”
› Pentecost definition
One of the poems Chisholm shared with Runyan was what would become the great hymn of the Church, “Great is Thy Faithfulness.”
It is said that Runyan was so moved by the Chisholm’s words that he sat down that very day composing a melody to go with the lyrics.
Pentecost is a Greek word.
It means "50th day."
Pentecost is a Christian celebration fifty days after Easter Sunday.
is the basis of the chorus “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
But why do we celebrate Pentecost?
Because!
The first stanza speaks of God’s unchanging nature,
Without Pentecost, there is no Church.
Without Pentecost, there is no fulfilment of the Scriptures.
Without Pentecost, we will have no encounter with Christ today.
. . .
there is no shadow of turning with thee;
thou changest not, thy compassions they fail not.”
Why do I say this?
Is it true?
Think about what Pentecost is or What Pentecost means to you right now.
Do you know what Pentecost is?
Does it even mean anything to you?
, “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows” may well have played a role as well.
Let us go back to the Old Testament and understand the beginnings.
The first Pentecost is a Jewish holiday called Shavuot.
For the Jews, Shavout is an important historical event with deep significance.
Shavuot is still celebrated by the Jews today.
1. Shavuot commemorates the day when God gave the law to Israel at Mount Sinai.
The law was a marriage vow between God and His people.
The law teaches the Israelites how to love God, worship God and walk in right relationship with Him.
And in the giving of the law…
2. Shavuot marks the day Israel was birthed as a nation.
After God delivered the Israelites from Egypt, Israel became a sovereign nation.
They were free, no more slaves.
