Episode 37: Stephanie takes us to that very first effusion of the Holy Spirit on the believers gathered in obedience to Jesus' command to wait for the Spirit to come upon them. 

Have you ever wondered who the Holy Spirit is, especially in relation to God the Father and Christ the Son? How about who He is in relation to us? We are told that we are sealed with the Holy Spirit at salvation. What does it mean, and what does it entail?

We're looking at the nature and goal of a seal in the ancient world--and it takes you much deeper than a dusty history lesson!

It's the most glorious of promises, and frankly, one of the most misunderstood ones. So today, peel the veil back and dive deep into the glory of the Holy Spirit. You may leave wet from head to toe--drenched in the guarantee of your inheritance, until you take full possession of it!

Have you ever pondered that Pentecost is what makes us superior to the angels? Take a listen today!


The Father is the Giver, who, through the Giving of the Son, freely and abundantly gives the gift of the Spirit to us, the gifted.

In other words, Pentecost takes us from a mentality of scarcity, to one of abundance.

This is a meaty episode today. Enjoy!
