Sermon: "Jesus Kept His Promise! The Holy Spirit Has Come!" by Rev. Gary S. Schuschke

This Saturday and Sunday, the scripture is taken from:

 Old Testament Reading                                                                              Numbers 11:24-30  

 24 So Moses went out and told the people the words of the LORD. And he gathered seventy men of the elders of the people and placed them around the tent. 25 Then the LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to him, and took some of the Spirit that was on him and put it on the seventy elders. And as soon as the Spirit rested on them, they prophesied. But they did not continue doing it.

26 Now two men remained in the camp, one named Eldad, and the other named Medad, and the Spirit rested on them. They were among those registered, but they had not gone out to the tent, and so they prophesied in the camp. 27 And a young man ran and told Moses, “Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.” 28 And Joshua the son of Nun, the assistant of Moses from his youth, said, “My lord Moses, stop them.” 29 But Moses said to him, “Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the LORD’s people were prophets, that the LORD would put his Spirit on them!” 30 And Moses and the elders of Israel returned to the camp.

Psalm 25:1-15                                                Responsive Reading

P: To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul.

C: O my God, in you I trust; let me not be put to shame; let not my enemies exult over me.

P: Indeed, none who wait for you shall be put to shame; they shall be ashamed who are want only treacherous.

C: Make me to know your ways, O teach me your paths.

P: Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.

C: Remember your mercy, O LORD, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old.

P: Remember not the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for the sake of your goodness, O LORD!

C: Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in the way.

P: He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.

C: All the paths of the LORD are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.

P: For your name’s sake, O LORD, pardon my guilt, for it is great.

C: Who is the man who fears the LORD? Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose. His soul shall abide in wellbeing, and his offspring shall inherit the land.

P: The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant.

C: My eyes are ever toward the LORD, for he will pluck my feet out of the net.

ALL: Glory be to the Father and  to the Son and to the Holy Spirit; as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

 Epistle Reading                                                                                          Acts 2:1–21  

 2 When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. 2 And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. 3 And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

5 Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. 6 And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered, because each one was hearing them speak in his own language. 7 And they were amazed and astonished, saying, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? 8 And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language? 9 Parthians and Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, 11 both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians—we hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God.” 12 And all were amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What does this mean?” 13 But others mocking said, “They are filled with new wine.”

14 But Peter, standing with the eleven, lifted up his voice and addressed them: “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and give ear to my words. 15 For these people are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. 16 But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel:  17 “ ‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares,  that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh,  and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,  and your young men shall see visions,  and your old men shall dream dreams; 18 even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy.  19 And I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke; 20 the sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day.   21 And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.’

Gospel Reading                                                                                                         John 7:37–39

37 On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’ ” 39 Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.
