Protestors of the Pentecost

(Ancient voices who still are heard)
One of the most perplexing questions for those seeking Empowerment is: “Why is nothing happening?” You has courageously and faithfully responded some way to the call for Empowerment, often receiving prayer from others, but leave the altar disappointed if not dejected. Confused and bewildered, you walk away entertaining the thought, “Perhaps this experience is not for me.” People tell you to keep pressing in. Other’s say believe you have received. A few may encourage you to have more faith. I find these statements inadequate. There is more here to explore.
This morning, I want to attempt to pastor those who are left wanting. On the Day of Pentecost, there is a group of people, religious people, who are ridiculing the move of the Spirit. I see three distinct protests designed to derail those who are pressing into the move of God. I feel the voice of these protestors still can be heard mocking all those who set their course of pursuing God’s power. Let’s expose these voices and then process their accusations.
