“He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to|
wait for the Promise of the Father....”
Prepare For Pentecost
I left them there on earth—
My disciples—gazing up
as I ascended in My resurrected body.
They could no longer see Me.
For I was received from there
at My Father’s right hand.
I left them on earth, just as you now remain,
not without hope, however.
I continue to send the Promise of the Father,
following your obedience to My command.
Keep on assembling and waiting,
anticipating the One to come in My place.
I send Him, not just to be with you,
but to fill you with My presence.
Is your temple ready, dear one,
to receive Me in you?
