14qRrKoQ2N2eOrDgoSMfcgeOS9UToday, let’s make it real personal as we take a journey into the upper room on the day of Pentecost where you have according to Acts 1:12-15 (NKJV) some 120 men and women who has gathered as Christ had commanded them before His ascension, do “not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the Promise of the Father, which we now know was the Holy Spirit.

This is where the Christian church begin and today since it is personal, we are going to add our names to that list which will make it 121 believers in the upper room who has come to Jerusalem along with pilgrims from all over the world to celebrate the day of Pentecost.

121 believers of the body of Christ together which is a “ratio of approximately 1 Christian to every 500,000 to 580,000 from that point The Christian church exploded in growth. Tens of thousands were converted” (Mark Finley) This shows each of God’s chosen who are committed to serving God, the power of God and His Spirit, when we as Christian’s come together as one and have an upper room experience.

And this is where we recognize on one accord, the hope, grace, mercy and the assurance from the Good Shepherd that states in His Word “the Lord loves the just and will not forsake hiscapture faithful ones Ps. 37:28 (KJV) “And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house…”

Oh my God, that mighty rushing wind, which was the outpouring of God’ Spirit, is what we all must seek with a passion as we re-live an upper room experience each today. In addition, our lives will never be transformed if somehow we are only consumed by the atmosphere of fellowship in a beautiful worship service at church, or if time permits we may be compelled to feed the homeless, or visited the sick.

No my friends, only an upper room experience can transform us which is a personal and heartfelt experience with Christ and His Holy outpouring_330x220Spirit that takes us on a Journey that leads to a total commitment to Christ and His will for what He wants to accomplished through us as His chosen vessel.

And only in that upper room can we “stay always within the boundaries where God’s love can reach and bless [us as we], wait patiently for the eternal life that our Lord Jesus Christ in his mercy is going to give [His faithful].” Jude 1:21 (KJV) as we seek His presence in an upper room experience.

And today, we all must seek such an experience for our “Lord, has searched each of us and  He knows each of us personally! “He knows when we sit down and when we rise up; He discerns our thoughts from afar… He searches out our path He is acquainted with all of our ways.” Psalm 139:3 (KJV)

So as a Child of God let’s also search out our Saviors path, and get acquainted with all of His ways Today in the upper room for he is more than just our Savior He is also our friend. “Ohimages9 what a friend we have in Jesus all our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer in the upper room as Christ becomes a personal Savior as we allow our lives to be transforms into His likeness in preparation for His kingdom.

In addition, this experience is never about location, but about the experience, one receives just being in the presence of Christ. it could be as we drive in our car down the street, or at work, or in the “hiding places on the mountainside,” or in the solitude of a room at Home, what’s important is an experience and relationship with Christ that can be as simple as laying across our bed as we take our countenance to a place that only an upper room experience with Jesus can take us.


So friends stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
