22 Jun 2011, Silver Spring, Maryland, United States…Ted N. C. Wilson

In obedience to Jesus’ instruction, the disciples returned to Jerusalem after His ascension to prepare for the gift of the Holy Spirit. Luke, in the Book of Acts, mentions one of these preparatory steps twice: “These all continued with one accord in prayer” (Acts 1:14), and “When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord” (Acts 2:1).

The ten were enraged at this bold request and held bitter feelings against the brothers. Seguir leyendo
