ACTS 2:1-4 1.] When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. 2.] Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3.] They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4.] All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit enabled them. Acts 2:5-13 5.] Now there were staying in Jerusalem, God fearing Jews from every nation under heaven. 6.] When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard them speaking in their own language. 7.] Utterly amazed, they asked: "Are not all these men who are speaking Galileans? 8.] Then how is it that each of us hears them in his own native language? 9.] Parthians, Medes, Elamites, residents of Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10.] Phrygia, and Phamphilia, Egypt, and the parts of Libya, near Cyrene; visitors from Rome, 11.] (both Jews and converts to Judaism); Cretans and Arabs---we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues! " 12.] Amazed and perplexed they asked one another, "What does this mean?" 13.] Some, however, made fun of them and said, "They have had too much wine."
PETER ADDRESSES THE CROWD! ACTS 2:14-21 14.] Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: "Fellow Jews and all of you who are in Jerusalem; let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say. 15.] These men are not drunk as you suppose. It's only nine in the morning! 16.] No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 17.] 'In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. your sons and daughter will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams, 18.] Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 19.] I will show wonders in the heaven above, and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke. 20.] The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord. 21.] And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.'
ROMANS 5: 12-20 12.) Adam sinned, and that sin brought death unto the world. Now everyone has sinned, and so everyone must die. 13.) Sin was in the world before the law came. But no record of sin was kept, because there was no law. 14.) Yet death still had power over all who lived from the time of Adam to the time of Moses. This happened although not everyone disobeyed a direct command of God, the way Adam did. In some ways Adam is like Christ who came later. 15.) But the gift that God was kind enough to give was very different from Adam's sin. That one sin gave death to many others. Yet in an even greater way, Jesus Christ alone brought God's gift of kindness to many other people. 16.) There is a big difference between Adam's sin and God's gift. That one sin led to punishment. But God's gift made it possible for us to be acceptable to him, even though we have sinned many times. 17.) Death ruled like a King because Adam sinned. But that can not compare to what Jesus Christ had done. God has been kind to us, and he has accepted us because of Jesus. And so we will live and rule like Kings. 18.) Everyone was going to be punished because Adam sinned. But because of the good thing that Christ has done, God accepts us and gives us the gift of life. 19.) Adam disobeyed God, and caused many others to be sinners., But Jesus obeyed him and will make many people acceptable to God. 20.) The law came, so that the full power of sin could be seen. Yet where sin was powerful, God's kindness was even more powerful. 21.) Sin ruled by means of death. But God's kindness now rules, and God has accepted us because of Jesus Christ our Lord. This means that we will have eternal life
