Pentecost celebration we held on Friday night the 29th May
Pentecost the celebration initiated by God in thanksgiving and remembrance for the giving of the Ten Commandments at mount Sinai and the establishment if a marriage covenant between God Almighty and the children of Israel as He birthed a nation from the 12 tribes descending from the 12 sons if Jacob. This celebration was the very same date that the church was birthed in Jerusalem 2000 years ago when God sent the Holy Spirit to empower the believers to live a holy and righteous life. On that day 120 believers were gathered in the upper room at my Zion in Jerusalem. The Holy Spirit came as a mighty rushing wind that filled the room where they met and then alighted in each one like tongues of fire and they were filled with the Holy Spirit, filled with joy and spoke in tongue sz Peter then preached and 3000 people were born again and baptized. Now we celebrated this on Friday night in thanks giving and rejoicing. So our teenage boys barbequed boerwors (sausages) and cooked mielie pap in three legged pot in the open fire. The girls make salads and sauce for the pap, then the evening was full of songs and dances.
