The Holy Spirit is pouring out on God’s people during these last days.

In a message on Pentecost, prophetic voice Rabbi Jonathan Cahn discussed how the occurrences in the Old Testament were a foreshadowing of what was to come when the Holy Spirit would descend on His people in the last days.

However, in the New Testament, something miraculous happened to 3,000 people on the day of Pentecost as they were added to the number of believers.

“Paul said, ‘the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life,’” Cahn says. “On that day, God takes His own first fruits, the 120, and He anoints them, He sanctifies them.”

Cahn notes that it was in the Old Testament when God spoke through the prophet Joel that it was said how the Holy Spirit would come and use God’s children for His glory. It is this outpouring of the Spirit that Cahn says Peter experienced on the day of Pentecost which enabled him to preach the gospel to the masses and to prophesy the words of Joel over them.

Acts 2:17-18 is where Peter quotes the prophet Joel by stating:

“ ‘In the last days it shall be,’ says God, ‘that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. Even on My menservants and maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy.”

“What is the second chapter of Joel?” Cahn asks. “It’s God’s promise of restoration to Israel.”

Cahn also says that life with the Holy Spirit means crossing over from the old life marked by death to a new life with an eternal identity in Christ. It means being filled daily by communion with God.

“The soil that’s going to bear the greatest fruit, the life that’s going to bear the greatest things in God is not the soil that says, ‘it rained on me a number of years ago…’ it’s the soil that’s open every day and says ‘I want rain from heaven,’” Cahn says.
