Nate Furness and Glenn Gibson: "Until He Returns"
We would like to invite you to a new Sabbath experience, Communion at Home. The early church met in family homes and shared meals. Due to persecution, missionary journeys, or life circumstances, they were often separated from one another. This shared meal was considered to be the Lord’s Supper and a way in which the community could help each other. I can imagine that the host would stand and take the bread and raise her glass and say, “For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.” During our current separation, we long for the time when we may be together again. We anticipate the return of Jesus. We hope this Sabbath you will take the bread and raise your cup and say, “Until He returns.”
Acts 2:1-21, NCV
When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2 Suddenly a noise like a strong, blowing wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw something like flames of fire that were separated and stood over each person there. 4 They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak different languages[a] by the power the Holy Spirit was giving them. 5 There were some religious Jews staying in Jerusalem who were from every country in the world. 6 When they heard this noise, a crowd came together. They were all surprised, because each one heard them speaking in his own language. 7 They were completely amazed at this. They said, “Look! Aren’t all these people that we hear speaking from Galilee? 8 Then how is it possible that we each hear them in our own languages? We are from different places: 9 Parthia, Media, Elam, Mesopotamia, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia, 10 Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, the areas of Libya near Cyrene, Rome 11 (both Jews and those who had become Jews), Crete, and Arabia. But we hear them telling in our own languages about the great things God has done!” 12 They were all amazed and confused, asking each other, “What does this mean?” 13 But others were making fun of them, saying, “They have had too much wine.” 14 But Peter stood up with the eleven apostles, and in a loud voice he spoke to the crowd: “My fellow Jews, and all of you who are in Jerusalem, listen to me. Pay attention to what I have to say. 15 These people are not drunk, as you think; it is only nine o’clock in the morning! 16 But Joel the prophet wrote about what is happening here today: 17 ‘God says: In the last days I will pour out my Spirit on all kinds of people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. 18 At that time I will pour out my Spirit also on my male slaves and female slaves, and they will prophesy. 19 I will show miracles in the sky and on the earth: blood, fire, and thick smoke. 20 The sun will become dark, the moon red as blood, before the overwhelming and glorious day of the Lord will come. 21 Then anyone who calls on the Lord will be saved.’
