Pentecost: Feast of Spirit | Discourse 8 | eBOOK
And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit
by Rev Mario Schoenmaker
In this series of discourses, Rev Mario ponders the historical happening, evolutionary significance and personal implications of the cosmos-shifting happening we call Pentecost. If you have wanted to understand this tremendous outpouring of spirit from a deeper perspective, these discourses will enable you to enter into this unique event and embrace it.
These discourses were given over the course of twenty years at different times of the year and in different settings so they reflect both a constant and evolving perspective of Pentecost. We suggest you take your time with each one. These discourses are challenging and inspiring, a feast of spirit.
Discourse 8 | Pentecost: The Movement of Spirit is Forward
‘Of all the people who followed the Christ during his journey on this earth, only a handful were chosen to receive the Spirit for future work. Only they received the guidance, the strength, the stamina to continue in the face of persecution, pain, misunderstanding and even death.’ In this address Rev Mario explores what enabled the disciples to be baptized with spirit and fire. He emphasises trust and surrender as the vital precursors to ‘receiving the Holy Spirit’. (June 1987)
