The Promised Outpouring


When Jesus speaks to His disciples about the baptism of the Holy Spirit just before the Ascension, He calls it the Promise of the Father (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4). So this wasn’t some new promise Jesus was giving then; it was an old Promise which had already been made long ago. The promise goes way back into the Old Testament, where the Lord promised to pour out His Spirit. And we can learn quite a bit about this outpouring of the Spirit from the Old Testament prophecies.

One of those Old Testament prophecies is in Isaiah 44:1-8 where the Lord not only promises to pour out His Spirit, but also tells us about what will happen when He does. So, if you’re interested, here’s a sermon from Leeds from Isaiah 44:1-8 on this Promised Outpouring.
