Joel 2:28-29

 
And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
Joel 2:28-29

How does it feel to be sitting in the middle of fulfilled prophecy? This prophecy by Joel was given about 2,800 years ago to the kingdom of Judah to give them a glimmer of hope and future in the midst of pending judgment. These words will be spoken again at the birthday of the church by Peter in Acts 2:17-21. This was kickstarted on the Day of Pentecost and has been reverberating through the church age to this day. We see the manifestation of this prophecy all around us.

Today in the Muslim world, we hear the accounts of people having "Jesus dreams." (Jesus speaking to them directly in their dreams to be of good courage and not fear to follow Him. They often label themselves as, "A follower of Jesus.")

Peter used this passage to explain that the people were not drunk but filled with the Holy Spirit when they spoke in the tongues of other languages. So today when you ask the Lord to fill you with His Spirit, know that you are walking in the fulfillment of prophecy.

Lord fill me with your Spirit,

Pastor Gerard Deleeuw
