There have been a few times in history that have changed the course of mankind. One such time was on Pentecost Day just a few short weeks after the most significant moment in history; the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Jesus had told the disciples not to leave Jerusalem before Pentecost Day for the promise of the Holy Spirit, prophesied by the prophet Joel, was to come upon them. And the Spirit did come with awesome power.
The disciples received the Holy Spirit who came upon them in flames of fire, with the rushing sounds of the wind, and with the gifts of speaking in tongues and prophecy.
The Holy Spirit transformed these men from hiding in an upper room after the death of their Lord, to men who would preach the gospel of Jesus Christ boldly to the whole known world. And this message has come down to us today and it continues to be the most transformative message in history.
These events, recorded in the second chapter of the book of Acts, were the beginning of the church. And all of the power and the promises are still available to those who will seek them.
This song is based upon the events of that day when the whole world changed.
