When the day of Pentecost had arrived, they were all together in one place.
Suddenly a sound like that of a violent rushing wind came from heaven, and it filled the whole house where they were staying.
And tongues, like flames of fire that were divided, appeared to them and rested on each one of them.
Then they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different languages, as the Spirit gave them ability for speech.
On the contrary, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel:
And it will be in the last days, says God, that I will pour out My Spirit on all humanity; then your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.
I will even pour out My Spirit on My male and female slaves in those days, and they will prophesy.
I will display wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below: blood and fire and a cloud of smoke.
The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and remarkable day of the Lord comes;
then whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
