Pentecost, Jean II Restout (1732)

[from Greek pentēkostē, literally “fiftieth day”] Religious feast on the seventh Sunday, or fiftieth day, after Easter celebrating the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the apostles (see Acts 2). Also called Whitsunday. Whitsuntide is the week beginning with Whitsunday, especially the first three days of the week.

In his address on Pentecost 1991, the Maha Chohan said:

From the mount of salvation somewhere in the etheric octave I descend, not alone to this place but all the way to the deepest levels of Death and Hell. For in the hour of the descent of the Holy Spirit all are touched. Some are quickened to everlasting Life. Some receive the judgment of the Holy Ghost. Know, then, beloved, that to each one upon earth there is a visitation of the Holy Spirit, there is the measuring of the lifestream, there is the dividing of Light from Darkness.

This action of the Holy Spirit is an annual Pentecost event. All souls in all octaves of planet earth should prepare themselves from Easter Sunday to Pentecost through prayer and fasting, worthy deeds, study of the scriptures and dynamic decrees to receive the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
