Welcome to Life

When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2:1-4

He sat in the dark cafe knowing everything. All the details of our existence. All the whys, wheres, and hows. All of life, and all that comes after, were known to him. He blasphemed. He mocked. He was right and these idiots were wrong. The simple herds and their nonsense were beneath him, not even near his greatness. And when the Spirit was poured out on the Earth, he wept somberly. She knew nothing, except God and, when she saw him weeping, prayed for him to see.

And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams; even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy. And I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke; the sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day. And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Acts 2:17-21
