Acts 1:14 These (the disciples) all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.

            Jesus has left them with a promise. They wait in Jerusalem quietly, waiting, watching. Any moment the Romans or the temple guards may come crashing in to carry them away. But Jesus had “commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father…”(Acts 1:4) So, in obedience they waited. As they waited and prayed and tried to understand all that had happened I believe they camne to one conclusion. They must place their dependence for everything on the promise of the Lord Jesus. I believe as well that their agreement signaled to Jesus that they were ready for the gift he had promised and the power of God by His holy spirit was unleashed upon them.

            Bursting forth from the upper room in a new surge of confidence a crowd quickly gathered because Pentecost was a real party time in Jerusalem. The city was swelled to as much as two or three times the normal population with Jews from all the provinces of the Roman empire and curious tourists as well.

            As they began to laugh at the apparent “drunkenness” of the disciples, confusing their joy for inebriation, suddenly they began to hear Peter declare the truth of God in their own languages. A wit might quip that that is some sort of party trick, but in reality God was unbinding the hearing centers of the men so that they could all understand the love He had for them and the way in which He had shown His love.  Wow!

Note, in order to facilitate better archiving I am changing the delineation at the front end of this blog with a numeric designation only.
