14 As the twelve stood together, Peter shouted to the crowd,
Peter: Men of Judea and all who are staying here in Jerusalem, listen. I want you to understand: 15 these people aren’t drunk as you may think. Look, it’s only nine o’clock in the morning! 16 No, this isn’t drunkenness; this is the fulfillment of the prophecy of Joel.
17 Hear what God says! In the last days, I will offer My Spirit to humanity as a libation. Your children will boldly speak the word of the Lord. Young warriors will see visions, and your elders will dream dreams. 18 Yes, in those days I shall offer My Spirit to all servants, both male and female, and they will boldly speak My word.
19 And in the heaven above and on the earth below. I shall give signs of impending judgment: blood, fire, and clouds of smoke. 20 The sun will become a void of darkness,and the moon will become blood. Then the great and dreadful day of the Lord will arrive,
21 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be liberated into God’s freedom and peace (Acts 2:14-21, The Voice Bible).
