Something tripped my trigger about the familiarity of that homily that I'd honestly forgotten, so I asked my daughter to pull the Pentecost sermon file out of the ancient filing cabinet. I, too, was surprised that 30 years later it was a very current message for today.

So very true. God's word is from everlasting to everlasting. The folks who seem to think the Bible is outdated are to be pitied and prayed for. His precepts and principles are up to date in every generation.

The following is my sermon for Pentecost Sunday May 22, 1994,  30 years ago.


"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, He shall teach you all things and bring all things to your remembrance,  whatsoever I have said unto you."


In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.


Today we celebrate the birthday of the Christian Church.  On this day a group of Jesus' followers were filled with the Holy Spirit, and by this act, became the very first members of the Body of Christ, what we call The Church.


In obediance to their Lord's command on the very day of His Ascension, His little Apostolic band did not depart from Jerusalem but waited there for the Holy Spirit's promised coming.  The day of His coming was most appropriate, since it was the Jewish feast of Pentecost, the celebration of the Light of God's Law given to Moses.  On this day the light of God was shined on His New Revelation - the revelation not just of His Law, but of Himself, in the Person of Jesus Christ.


For three years their Master had walked and talked with His Apostles, teaching them the things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.  But their hearing had been dull and their hearts without understanding.  And so Jesus promised them, "When the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of Truth.....and He shall testify of me."  The Comforter. The Holy Spirit, would testify of Christ to the Apostles.  "And ye shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning."


They, who had been with Jesus from the beginning of His ministry, would have their minds enlightened, so that the meaning of all Jesus had said and done, the meaning of His life, and ministry would become clear to them.  For what purpose would the Apostles be enlightened?  So that they might bear witness to Christ before the world.


And so the Holy Spirit descended with the sound of a rushing wind, and "There appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them."  And thus the words of St. John The Baptist were fulfilled concerning Jesus,  "He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire."


On that very morning, when their own minds had been enlightened by the light of God, the Apostles went out amongst their brethren to share with them the true knowledge of the Person and work of Christ.  "And that same day there were added unto them about 3000 souls."


Now if all these new converts who were baptized received the same Spirit as the Apostles, were they all given the same degree of understanding as the Apostles?  Obviously not!  The Apostles were called, set apart, and specially commissioned to teach all nation, to bear witness to Christ before all the world.  For this purpose, Jesus had chosen them amongst the multitude for special teaching, for personal, private and intensive training.  Would He have gone to all this trouble if all they had to know would be given to them by the Holy Spirit?  Would he have commissioned them to teach others, if they too would receive the fullness of revelation from the Holy Spirit on Pentecost?  No! Of course not!  The Holy Spirit did not come to reveal anything but only to shed light on what Jesus had already revealed to His Apostles.  "He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you."


This particular point is of crucial importance today, when all sorts of changes and innovations are being introduced into the Church and attributed to the "new" light of the Holy Spirit. New truths about Holy Orders, new truths about sexual morality, about any doctrine or theology not contained in Holy Scripture or unknown in the Traditions of the early Church Father's, we may confidently deny!  While all who have been baptised have the Holy Spirit, His light is shed only on the teachings of Christ as handed down from the Apostles.


But perhaps Jesus didn't teach His Apostles everything.  Maybe they weren't ready because of the cultural prejudices of those times.  And so Jesus left some things to be taught later by the Holy Spitit.  But that's not what the Gospel's say.  Jesus said to the Apostles, "When He, the Spirit of Truth is come, He shall guide you into all truth: for He shall speak not of Himself....for He shall receive of mine, and shew it unto you."


There are two things we should note here.  First, The Spirit of Truth would guide the Apostles into all truth nothing to be left out, nothing awaiting the 20th Century to be revealed.  Second, The Holy Spirit would not speak of Himself, nothing on His own personal initiative,  but would show them only what He received from Christ!  Or, in the words of Jesus, " He shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance,  whatsoever I have said unto you."


The Holy Spirit didn't come to bring new truth, but to shed light on the truth already given to the Apostles.  They had it all by the time of our Lord's Ascension.  They just didn't understand it.  It's as if Jesus had come into a dim and empty room, painted the walls, put out the pictures, end tables, sofa, lounge chairs, lamps and completely furnished and decorated it.  The Apostles could not see very well everything that was there in the room.  Then came the Holy Spirit and turned on the lights.  Now the Apostles could finally see and understand all that their Master had given them in the years of their training.  The Spirit of Truth brought no new truth, the room had already been fully furnished by Jesus,  the Spirit shed His light on the truths already given to them.


It is certainly true that the Church has profited from this light in new ways over the centuries.  For example, slavery was finally abolished in Christendom as being inconsistent with the teachings of Christ.  Yet there was no new doctrine added to the faith of the Apostles, but only a more consistent working out what the Church had always believed that all human beings are created in the image of God and that we are to love our neighbor as ourselves.


The principle of equality applies equally as well among men and women.  But when this principle is misapplied and we hear that god the mother should be given equal time with God the Father, or replace Him altogether, we know this is not of the Holy Spirit.  Something is very wrong here. While every Christian knows that God The Father is not an old man, sitting on a throne with a long white beard, in blinding white robes, cookies in one hand and lightning bolts in the other, still scripture, the primary revelation by which we know anything at all about God, insists on using male imagery.  If we take that away we have a different God than the one whom Jesus called "Father" and who has been worshipped as Father since the time of Christ.  Instead we get something like the Great Earth Mother, which reduces God to the worship of nature, which is pure paganism.  Or if we take away the image of either gender we end up with a great "It" - an impersonal force or energy such as we find in the new age religions.  If, according to the words of Jesus, the Holy Spirit did not come to reveal anything in addition to Christ's teaching, much less did He come to reveal anything in contradiction to it.


And so, Dear People, on this day when the Church celebrates its own birth by the coming of the Holy Spirit, let the Church honor Him, The Spirit of Truth, in the way He would wish to be honored.   Not by ascribing to Him what He cannot do, namely, reveal new truths, but by clinging faithfully to the old truths that He came to shed light on, the truth once delivered by Christ to his Apostles, a truth that lasts forever.

JUST A REMINDER: GOOD PEOPLE MAY STILL GO TO HELL
So… how many good people do you know? We all know them. They are our friends, coworkers, neighbors, and family. They would offer us the shirt off their back. Many attend church regularly and even carry a Bible. They are hardworking, honest, dependable, and trustworthy… you know, “the salt of the earth.”

But I want to offer a sobering reminder… merely being good, from a human standpoint anyway, is not enough to be righteous in the sight of the Lord. Romans 3:23 tells us that ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Anybody got a calculator? How many is “all”?

The sad reality is that good people, apart from the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ in their lives, will die and spend eternity in hell.

Luke presented a “good man” in the Book of Acts. In Acts 10, we are introduced to Cornelius, a good man by worldly standards. His position as “centurion” reveals quite a bit about the type of man he was.

A Roman legion, consisting of about 6,000 men, was divided into cohorts of about 600 men each, which would mean about 10 cohorts per legion. Cohorts were further divided into roughly 100 men each, with each cohort being led by one centurion. So, picture a massive 6,000-man legion, divided and led by only 60 choice men.

Cornelius was one of those men. His was no small rank or position. A man didn’t rise to this status by being a poor soldier. In fact, I should point out that centurions were the backbone of the Roman legion and reached their rank by proving to be strong, responsible, and reliable men. If status or position in society was any metric of one’s goodness, Cornelius had checked that box.

But his worldly goodness went far above just his rank. Luke details a number of qualities displayed in his life in Acts 10:2.

He and all his family were devout and God-fearing; he gave generously to those in need and prayed to God regularly. Acts 10:2

In that one verse, at least five things are detailed about the character of Cornelius.

The first: Cornelius was “devout.”
Luke described an extremely devoted religious man. He had abandoned the pagan gods of the Romans and had focused his attention on the God of the Jews. His understanding of the true God was limited at this point, but nonetheless, he was as devoted to God as he could be with the knowledge he had.

The second thing that detailed the character of Cornelius: He “feared God.”
Some scholars have pointed to Cornelius’s devotion and suggested he was saved before Peter came to share the Gospel with him. But Scripture doesn’t allow that as a possibility.

After Peter preached in the house of Cornelius, he had to explain to his Jewish brethren all that transpired. He told them an angel had appeared to Cornelius and told him to send for Peter. Why? Because Cornelius needed to hear the “…message through which you and all your household will be saved.”

So, clearly Cornelius was not born again. But one can easily see in Cornelius a man who was seeking God, moving closer to God, but has not yet reached the point of salvation.

The third thing that detailed the character of Cornelius: He and “all his family were devout and God-fearing.”
Clearly, he put his belief into action. His longing for God was not something that he kept private but rather something that affected every facet of his life.

Scripture makes it clear that Cornelius had a huge impact and influence on his household and those under his care. This was a man who didn’t shirk his responsibilities within his home. And keep in mind, he was not a man who didn’t have anything else on his plate. Here was a hardened soldier, one who had been through rigorous training, with 100 other men depending on his mind, his ability, and his leadership.

But despite all he had going on. Despite the rigors of being a Roman soldier. Despite the extreme pressure of his superior Roman authorities. He still made time to lead his household… and he did it well.

The fourth thing that detailed the character of Cornelius: He “gave generously to those in need.”
Again, his belief led to action, not only toward his family but also in benevolence towards others.

Contrast that to the reputation of many of the other soldiers of that day. Because of their power and authority, and their general disdain for the Jews, many soldiers, far from giving to others, actually stole from others, and there was nothing anyone could say.

But Cornelius, rather than using his position to benefit himself, actually gave of himself to others. Luke even says he “gave generously.”

So, it wasn’t a one-time thing… or resulting from a feeling of obligation… but because he wanted to give. His life was one of generosity.

The fifth thing that detailed the character of Cornelius: He “prayed to God regularly.”
This man’s devotion caused him to lead his family, give to the needy, and pray. He truly lived what he had come to believe.

Notice how Luke described his prayer life – “regularly.” In other words, Luke characterized him as a true man of prayer.

So, consider Cornelius. He checked all the boxes that would have characterized him as a “good man.”
• Great position? Check.
• Devotion? Check.
• God-fearing? Check.
• Good family leader? Check.
• Giving to others? Check.
• Praying to God? Check.

But as “good” as Cornelius was, he was still lost.

None of us would argue that the man uttering all sorts of blasphemies and vulgarities needs to be saved.

But it’s a tough pill to swallow to think that our neighbor, our friend, or our loved one will die and go to hell, despite all their good deeds.

Some say:
• But… but… but they are good
• They are moral and decent
• They give
• They pray
• Etc., etc., etc.

It doesn’t matter.

Apart from Jesus, they will die and go to hell. Unfortunately, hell is full of good people. You can take all the goodness man can muster up, and it still falls short of the standard.

Isaiah said, “All of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags.” (Isaiah 64:6). We can never be good enough. But thank God we don’t have to be.

Through simple faith in Jesus, by believing in Him and His finished work on the cross, the Lord will remove our unrighteousness and impute to us the righteousness of Christ.

As Cornelius’s story unfolded, by the providential hand of God, a good man, became a saved man. And I believe this of any person who is truly seeking God.

So why am I sharing this? Because becoming a saved person can happen to people that you witness to today... good or as bad as they may be.

I encourage you tell people that if they don’t know Jesus as their Savior, don’t let them think that being a good person will grant them good standing before a holy God.

It won’t.

Instead, tell them to place their faith in Jesus today, and let Him impute to them a goodness that you will never have any other way.

The second, a man full of Mercy, said to him: "I will prevent you from straying from God and your battle against The Almighty, being condemned forever."

The Third of them was the simplest and instead of answering the Tempter, he knelt down, made The Sign of The Holy Cross, and prayed: "Lord, deliver me from the temptation of what might have been and what was not."

Satan screaming and trembling with pain, fled.

The other two were surprised and said to him: "Brother, why did you react like this?"

And he answered them: “First, we should never talk to the Enemy.”

“Secondly, no one in this world has the power to change the past.”

“Third: Satan’s interest was not to prove our Virtue, but to Trap us in the past, so that we neglect the present, the only time Almighty God gives us His Grace and we can cooperate with Him to fulfill His will.”

Of all the Demons, the one that most holds men back and prevents them from being happy is “what could have been and was not.” The past is left to the Mercy of Almighty God and the future to His Divine Providence. Only the present is in our hands. Live today loving God with all your heart.

Iran offers scholarships to students expelled from US, European universities over anti-Israel protests: report

Head of Shiraz University in Iran offers scholarships to students expelled from U.S. and European universities over anti-Israel protests, citing solidarity with anti-Israel agitators in the West.
Iranian state-owned outlet Press TV reports that the head of Shiraz University criticizes police response to encampment demonstrations in the West, offering expelled students the opportunity to continue their studies at Shiraz University.
Live images of anti-Israel protests at UCLA, where students clashed with police, were broadcast on Iranian state television and Qatar’s Al Jazeera network, as Iran seemingly supports the protests happening on American soil.
Are these AI-created takeaways helpful?YesNo
The head of a major Iranian university reportedly offered scholarships to students expelled from U.S. and European universities over anti-Israel protests broiling with antisemitism.

Mohammad Moazzeni, who runs Shiraz University in the Fars province, made the announcement at a gathering of students meant to show "solidarity" with anti-Israel agitators in the West on Wednesday.

Of the police response to the encampment demonstrations, he said, "[T]hey exert a lot of violence in order to contain this raging movement and have even threatened to expel the students from universities and hinder their employment in the future, and such autocratic methods show the decline of global arrogance," according to Irainian state-owned outlet Press TV. "Students and even professors who have been expelled or threatened with expulsion can continue their studies at Shiraz University and I think that other universities in Shiraz as well as Fars Province are also prepared [to provide the conditions]."

He reportedly argued that what is happening in Gaza reveals the true nature of Western civilization and further supports the message of Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution, the Iranian state outlet reported.

Live images of the protests at the University of California, Los Angeles, where anti-Israel agitators clashed with police trying to clear a fortified encampment from campus on Thursday morning, were carried on Iranian state television, The Associated Press reported. Qatar’s pan-Arab Al Jazeera satellite network also carried live images of the police action, and live images from Los Angeles also played across Israeli television networks.

As Iran seemingly cheers the protests happening on American soil, Secretary of State Antony Blinken told foreign ministers of the Gulf Cooperation Council during a meeting in Saudi Arabia earlier this week that the "conflict with Israel and Hamas" comes against the backdrop of "increasingly destabilizing actions by Iran and its proxies."

Iranian f**g at California anti-Israel protest
A man carries the f**g of Iran inside an anti-Israel encampment set up at UC Irvine in Irvine, California, on Wednesday.
"This is the first meeting since Iran’s unprecedented attack on Israel, the first direct attack from Iran to Israel, with more than 300 projectiles, including over 100 ballistic missiles. This attack highlights the acute and growing threat from Iran, but also the imperative that we work together on integrated defense," Blinken told partners in the Middle East. "This brazen attack also underscores the risks of Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon and why we must continue to work together to make sure that that does not happen."

At least 200 people were arrested at UCLA on Thursday, bringing the nationwide total of arrests to more than 2,000 at dozens of college campuses since police cleared an encampment at Columbia University in mid-April, according to a tally by the AP. Police methodically ripped apart the encampment’s barricade of plywood, pallets, metal fences and dumpsters, then pulled down dozens of canopies and tents.

Demonstrations — often with antisemitic and even pro-terror slogans — have unfolded since the war started on Oct. 7, 2023, when Palestinian terrorists launched an unprecedented attack into southern Israel, k*****g around 1,200 people — mostly civilians — and abducting about 250 hostages. Israel says Hamas still holds around 100 hostages and the remains of more than 30 others.
