No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: “ In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people…” (Acts 2:16-17a)
When Moses needed help, God took his spirit and put it in 70 elders (Numbers 11:25). These, then, received wisdom and discernment to judge among their brethren.
Later, God continued to give grace to specific individuals to serve as judges or prophets. However, the rest of the people could not enjoy God’s presence in their lives.
But everything changed with the coming of Christ.
The filling of the Spirit is no longer reserved for a few. Access to the presence of God is no longer the privilege of the high priest.
Because the imperfect sacrifices were exchanged for the perfect sacrifice of Christ. And now God sees us justified.
And so we have been granted free access to that marvelous presence of God and he receives us, not only as servants, but as sons.
The only condition is to accept this sacrifice.
For “Whoever believes…will be saved“.
Can you help me to share it? Thank you very much.
