·        God has promised and given Power to help mankind in all generations
·        A greater Power was promised by Jesus Christ before He ascended
·        The Holy Ghost visited the disciples on the first Whitsuntide
·        First we can receive Power (anointing) from Above, then seek to abide in God’s Spirit as we draw closer to Him preparing for His return
·        Finally, when Jesus Christ returns God has promised that His Spirit will physically dwell within those prepared, and they will be made like Him, “for we shall see Him as He is” 
·        This Whitsuntide let us seek for the Power from God to not only rest upon us, but to abide with us forever.
