It is often referred to as the feast of weeks or ingathering,also day of FirstFruits. Most of you in churchianity only know of the term from the book of acts where Gods people were keeping this Holyday and upon hearing about Christ message repented,were baptized, had hands laid upon them and the Father sent His spirit to dwell in them and teach them.
In prophecy Pentecost pictures the gathering of Jesus in getting His church. It pictures the 1st resurrection of the dead. (Christ Church). If all this seems foriegn to you I suggest you spend this Holyday praying, studing, and repenting to find yourself in Gods true church and take part is His Pentecost now and forever.
This is partially right and partially wrong.
Jesus disciples went to Jerusalem because Jesus specifically told them to stay there because they would be baptized by the Holy Spirit!
Tongues of fire came down on the apostles and the apostles spoke in tongues and preached the message of Christ to Jews there celebrated Pentecost.
Then 3,000 were baptized that day and were saved.
Pentecost today is no longer a requirement for God's assembly to uphold.
That was for ancient Israel under the Old Covenant.
