   Inspirational Verses

   "On the day of Pentecost all the Lord's followers were together in one place.  Suddenly there was a noise
   from heaven like the sound of a mighty wind! It filled the house where they were meeting. Then they saw
   what looked like fiery tongues moving in all directions, and a tongue came and settled on each person
   there.  The Holy Spirit took control of everyone, and they began speaking whatever languages the Spirit
   let them speak.  Many religious Jews from every country in the world were living in Jerusalem.  And
   when they heard this noise, a crowd gathered. But they were surprised, because they were hearing
   everything in their own languages.  They were excited and amazed, and said: Don't all these who are
   speaking come from Galilee?  Then why do we hear them speaking our very own languages?  Some of
   us are from Parthia, Media, and Elam. Others are from Mesopotamia, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia,
   Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, parts of Libya near Cyrene, Rome, Crete, and Arabia. Some of us were born
   Jews, and others of us have chosen to be Jews. Yet we all hear them using our own languages to tell the
   wonderful things God has done.  Everyone was excited and confused. Some of them even kept asking
   each other, "What does all this mean?" Others made fun of the Lord's followers and said, "They are
   drunk."  Peter stood with the eleven apostles and spoke in a loud and clear voice to the crowd: Friends
   and everyone else living in Jerusalem, listen carefully to what I have to say!  You are wrong to think that
   these people are drunk. After all, it is only nine o'clock in the morning.  But this is what God had the
   prophet Joel say,  "When the last days come, I will give my Spirit to everyone. Your sons and daughters
   will prophesy. Your young men will see visions, and your old men will have dreams. In those days I will
   give my Spirit to my servants, both men and women, and they will prophesy.  I will work miracles in the
   sky above and wonders on the earth below. There will be blood and fire and clouds of smoke.  The sun
   will turn dark, and the moon will be as red as blood before the great and wonderful day of the Lord
   appears.  Then the Lord will save everyone who asks for his help."  Now, listen to what I have to say
   about Jesus from Nazareth. God proved that he sent Jesus to you by having him work miracles,
   wonders, and signs. All of you know this.  God had already planned and decided that Jesus would be
   handed over to you. So you took him and had evil men put him to death on a cross. But God set him free
   from death and raised him to life. Death could not hold him in its power."
