The story of Pentecost from the Acts of the Apostles is not an historical event. It is more of a theological event. A declaration of faith so profound that it changed history. The church was forever changed by this multicultural, multiracial, and international idea. It was now a global force, capable to take on the Roman Empire. Peter had to declare that the apostles were not drunk but giving forth a new message. The text refers to the ancient message from the prophet, Joel. God is no longer punishing them. God has declared a time of reprieve. God want to pour his spirit upon us. God wants to possess you. We must open our hearts to God. When you are possessed, it is more than just speaking in tongues. Your sons and daughters will prophesize. The young will see visions and the old will dream dreams. Our lives will change. Our world will change.
