27-Mar-12:  Acts 2:14-24

4 But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them, “Men of Judea and all who live in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and listen to what I say. 15 Indeed, these are not drunk, as you suppose, for it is only nine o’clock in the morning. 16 No, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel:

17        ‘In the last days it will be, God declares,

that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh,

and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,

and your young men shall see visions,

and your old men shall dream dreams.

18        Even upon my slaves, both men and women,

in those days I will pour out my Spirit;

and they shall prophesy.

19        And I will show portents in the heaven above

and signs on the earth below,

blood, and fire, and smoky mist.

20        The sun shall be turned to darkness

and the moon to blood,

before the coming of the Lord’s great and glorious day.

21        Then everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.’

22 “You that are Israelites, listen to what I have to say: Jesus of Nazareth, a man attested to you by God with deeds of power, wonders, and signs that God did through him among you, as you yourselves know— 23 this man, handed over to you according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by the hands of those outside the law. 24 But God raised him up, having freed him from death, because it was impossible for him to be held in its power

As Angels Sang

The Holy Spirit came
from out of heaven above
and quietly fell upon me
gentle as a dove

As the angels sang
the sweetest of any song
with my spirit was joined
I knew where I belong

At the moment of union
I then began to speak
with the most divine language
that my knees went weak

Not because of this event
I had never ever heard
but thought that it happened
only in the Bible’s Word

So what you should understand
is this moment of such glee
may happen to any mortal man
‘Twas not reserved just for me!
