What was spoken of on Pentecost Day?  This is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel.
 
Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
  • The day of Pentecost
  • All races were there
2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
  • A rushing mighty wind from heaven, Holy Spirit
  • 2 Peter 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
  • Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.
  • Consuming fire NT:355 from NT:303 and a form of the alternate of NT:138; properly, to use up, destroy: KJV - consume.
  • Fire = to cleanse out all evil
  • Fire = Holy Spirit to warm your heart
  • Deut 4:24 For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.
    25 When thou shalt beget children, and children's children, and ye shall have remained long in the land, and shall corrupt yourselves, and make a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, and shall do evil in the sight of the Lord thy God, to provoke him to anger:
  • 2 Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
    9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
    10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
  • They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues
5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
 
6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.

  • If you here Babel, you know it's not of God
  • 1 Corinthians 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
  • Hebrew 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
  • His word, the truth is the two-edged sword
  • Babylon, which comes from the Hebrew word ''Babel'', means confusion.
  • This sword of truth is going to cause present day Babylon to fall.
  • Because a lie cannot stand in front of truth.
7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
 
8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
  • They were speaking in togues, Hear we every man in our own tongue. Every language in the world understood them.
9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,
 
10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,
 
11 Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.
  • We do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God
12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What meaneth this?

14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
 
15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day.
 
16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;
  • This is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel
17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of 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:
  • It shall come to pass in the last days, saith God
  • I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh.. your sons and your daughters

  • Mark 13:11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Spirit.
19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
  • I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come:
  •  The moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come
21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
 
23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
 
24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.
 
25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
 
26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
 
27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.

29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.

30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.

33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
  • The Holy Spirit spoke through the apostles in a language that everyone understood.
34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
  • This is quoting Psalms 110:1 .
  • Jesus will remain at the right hand of God, until His enemies are made His footstool.
  • Who do you think is going to make His enemies His footstool?
  • God's very elect will when they witness against the false messiah. God's very elect will stand for Christ.
36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.

44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;

45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.

46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved
