Miracles in heaven, signs on earth

Secret and unexplored wealth
Valley of the Shadow of Death

At the day of Pentecost, they were all unanimously together. And suddenly a noise came from the sky, as if from a rushing strong wind, and filled the whole house where they were. And tongues of fire appeared to them, as if fiery, and rested one on each of them. And all the Holy Spirit was filled, and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them a warning. In Jerusalem there were Jews, pious people from every nation under heaven. When this noise was made, the people gathered and became confused, for everyone heard them speaking in his dialect. And everyone was amazed and marveled, saying among themselves: Are these speaking not all Galileans? How do we hear everyone’s own dialect in which they were born. The Parthians, and the Medes, and the Elamites, and the inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya, adjacent to Cyrene, and come from Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians, we hear them with our tongues speaking of the great things of God? And everyone was amazed and, perplexed, they said to each other: what does this mean? And others, mocking, said: they drank sweet wine. Peter, having become with eleven, lifted up his voice and exclaimed to them: the men of Judah, and all that dwell in Jerusalem! let this be known to you, and heed my words: they are not drunk, as you think, for now is the third hour of the day; but this is the one foretold by the prophet Joel: And in the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy; and your young men will see visions, and your elders will be enlightened by dreams. Both in My servants and in My handmaids in those days I will pour out of My Spirit, and they will prophesy. And I will show miracles in the sky above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and smoking smoke. The sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the day of the Lord, great and glorious, comes. And it will be: everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
Acts 2: 1-21
