CELEBRATING THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE CHRISTIAN OLYMPICS AND THE BIRTHDAY OF THE CHURCH
The Flames are Still Burning
The very first Olympic Game,known as the Ancient Olympics,began about 776 B.C. in Olympia, Greece. The Olympic Games were held every four years which is known as an Olympiad. The Games continued until it ended about 393 A.D. You can find many references of the these games in the New Testament of the Holy Bible. But did you know that there are references to these games in the Old Testament as well ?
The Modern Olympic Games began in the summer of 1896 in Athens,Greece. And the Winter Olympics were added in 1924.In 1994 the Summer and Winter Olympics were no longer held in the same year,they were separated so that they could be two years apart. A flame of fire was always lit when the Games began,but the Torch Relay was something that was added to the Modern Olympics.
Pentecost Sunday, June 4,2017, is the Anniversary of the Christian Olympics and the birthday of the Church. The Christian Olympics and the Church began with the fire that symbolized the Holy Spirit’s coming. Which started in Jerusalem over 2000 years ago on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2). As athletes in the Olympics came from all over the world to one location for the Olympic Games, there was another large gathering on the Day of Pentecost.
On that day there were people from every nation under heaven gathered together in one place for the Opening Ceremony of the Christian Olympics. Just as the Olympic Games opened with flames of fire, the fire at Pentecost that symbolizes the Holy Spirit opened the Christian Olympics and Christianity and the Church was born.
At the Closing Ceremony of the Olympic Games the fire is always extinguished. But what is so significant is that the fire that symbolizes the Holy Spirit that was lit over 2000 years ago still burns today. Listen on your iPhone, Android or Tablet
