“And it shall come to pass in the last days, said God: that I will pour out my spirit on all flesh: your son’s and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. On my menservants and on my maidservants I will pour out my spirit in those days: and they shall prophesy.
Jesus said, ‘’ It is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper, the comforter, will not come. Jesus is speaking of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit has been given to us, so that we will not be without a comforter. The Holy Spirit is not limited to one place, He can be everywhere at the same time all across the world.
The Holy Spirit not only wants to live in us, He also wants to walk with us every step of our journey through life. He wants to give you enough grace for ever new day for the rest of your life. One hundred and twenty followers of Jesus gathered in the upper room to praise and pray and wait upon the Lord.
The bible says suddenly it sounded like a wind storm filling the upper room, but there was no wind. it was only the sound of it. Then flames of fire appeared and sat on the heads of every person in the upper room. The Holy Spirit filled the room! And every person was filled with His power. Everyone of them were glorifying and worshiping God. They all spoke in different languages, living waters flowed out of their bellies.
If you want to become spiritually stronger you will have to set aside time for bible study, prayer, witnessing and attending church, so that you will grow spiritually. For this is the only way to have a mature life like Jesus Christ. We all can be filed with God's power.
In Joel it said, ’’These people are not drunk as you suppose, but they’re filled with the spirit of God like the prophet’s. It happen then and it can happen today. All you need is the holy spirit, He will give you the living waters that you will never thirst again, He will give you true peace, joy, and happiness as long as he remains the center of your live.
Our God is a good father who gives good gifts to his children. The Holy Spirit produces fruit in our lives, love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, gladness, gentleness, kindness and self-control. He leads us in the truth and fills us with powers to do signs, wonders and miracles. You will firstly need to confess your sins, then the Holy Spirit will give you all His power to your disposal. The Holy Spirit will bring change, ask Him to change your thinking and to give you boldness for God’s Holy Word.
A.) You can give your heart to Jesus and not attend to church or not be baptised which will leave you empty and with no growth, which we call an empty vessel. To be a child of God is a very important step to take, it means that your whole life has to change.
B.) You can give your heart to Jesus and be baptised and decide that church is enough for you once a week, which will leave you half empty. This we call an half empty vessel. You will soon discover that your knowledge of the Word of God is not enough to give out to those around you.
C.) You can give your heart to Jesus, be baptised and make a choice and a decision that the Holy Spirit will lead you in the wisdom of the Word, (study, study, study.) you will attend church and be involved in prayer life and also be involved with the body of Christ. So you will discover the power of the Holy Spirit has given you enough to give out to the world, your vessel will be overflowing and the joy of the Lord and the praises of song will come out from your belly in praise and worship and also receiving a new tongue. This is the power of the Holy Spirit. What type of vessel would you like to be? An empty vessel, a half full vessel or an overflowing vessel?
Q What appeared and sat on the heads of every person in the upper room?
A Flames of fire from the Holy Spirit.
Q Is the Holy Spirit confined to one place?
A No, He can be everywhere at the same time.
Q Who is the Holy Spirit?
A He is our Helper and Comforter.
Marvellous signs and wonders were to take place through the greatness of the fire of the Holy Spirit.
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, 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.
9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
10 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead?
12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?
13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”
Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.
Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
With each Sunday school lesson, I try to give the kids special verses, activities and pictures to color in. Below you will find the download links for the special verse of the day and more. Please feel free to use them as you like for personal use in your own Sunday school classes. The wording and any images on this website are not to be sold or reproduced in any publications online or offline. I drew these pictures so that you could add your own verses to them for the day. Color the edgings with marker pens and a little bit of glitter. You can hand them out to the children to take home as bible verses for the day, even better if each child has a separate book, they can paste it into their own book.

Dear Sunday school partners, all around the world. Please refer to your bible and compare to see if you agree with our children Sunday school lessons.

These stories are based on easy words for children to understand, and my own thoughts. You are welcome to use your bible to add or take away.
