Re: Verse reading–Acts 2:1-41 (day one)
“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 will prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams”–v 17-18
Pentecost was what God promised! What John predicted. What Jesus prepared us to receive. (See John 20:22) The blessings of God’s Spirit poured out on all flesh! Not “all” in the sense of “every”, but “all” in the sense that no one is excluded by gender or age or social standing. Sons/daughters. Young/old. “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”–Romans 10:13. Whoever is saved will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit–Acts 2:38.
In the Old Testament era, the Holy Spirit came to a small, selective group of people. In the New Testament era, the church age, He comes in power to ALL OF US.
