Then one day, that day come. A different thing happened that day. The disciples were gathering in Jerusalem. There was a loud noise, like the blowing of powerful wind. Then they saw something like a flame of fire resting on each person there.
Holy Spirit had come to live in the heart of God’s people and give them the power to trust and obey God. And they can bravely share Gospel. They can speak in different language and people from all over the world that heard that were surprised as they can understand the words in their own language. Once they heard the Gospel, they repent, admit their sin and want to believe in Jesus.
