 (1Th 5:7)16 But this is what was uttered through the prophet Joel:17 “‘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; (Isa 32:15; Isa 44:3; Eze 36:27; Joe 2:28; Ac 2:18; Ac 2:33; Ac 10:45; Ac 21:9; Ro 5:5; Tit 3:6)18 even on my male servants and female servants in those days I will pour out my Spirit, and they shall prophesy. (Ac 11:28; Ac 21:10; 1Co 12:10)19 And I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke;20 the sun shall be turned to darkness and the moon to blood, before the day of the Lord comes, the great and magnificent day.
