Pentecost

Pentecost (the day of) was the Opening, or beginning, of the Holy Spirit being poured out upon believers. A Greek Parallel New Testament I have says it like this, "and it will be in the last days, is saying the God, I shall pour out from the Spirit of me upon all flesh, and will prophesy the sons of you and the daughters of you..."
- These verses (surely?) Acts 2:17-21, prophesied by Joel (2:28-32) apply to every generation since that first outpouring in Jerusalem, at Pentecost. We know for sure, or so it's commonly accepted, that it fits the often occurring pattern of Bible prophecy, having an immediate escalation or peak, and a 'last' days peak. In this instance, the 'immediate' of what Joel prophesied, occurred forty nine days after the ascension of Jesus (as Peter claimed and was saying in Acts 2) and of what Jesus said when He told them to wait in Jerusalem for the promise of the Father, saying, "you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem.. ..and to the ends of the earth".
