On The Fiftieth Day
On the fiftieth day after the resurrection
The Apostles sat in a room wondering.
They had been told to wait for direction,
And they were curious as to how to begin.
On the fiftieth day the Holy Spirit came
There was a sound like a mighty wind,
And divided tongues of fiery flame
Set upon them as the Holy Spirit came in.
On the fiftieth day they were Spirit filled
Each one knew there was no more waiting.
In their heart they knew they may be killed,
But if that was to be then it was their calling.
On the fiftieth day the Apostles did speak
In many languages that the Spirit gave.
And a desire for others to hear and seek
A relationship with Christ and be saved.
On the fiftieth day the Spirit came unending
And to this day to each of us He is sending.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
