“This is what was spoken by the prophet Joel … I will pour out my Spirit on all people.” Acts 2:16-17
The Amplified Bible reads, “the beginning of what was spoken.” Pentecost wasn’t the complete fulfilment of Joel’s prophecy rather the beginning. God’s desire is for all his people to be filled and empowered with his Spirit, not just a select few as in Old Testament times. When the people understood they asked, “What shall we do?” (verse 37). Peter responded, “Repent … be baptized … you will receive” (verse 38). Be open to receiving all God has for you.
