I recently had the opportunity to walk through the Cathedral Basilica of St. This magnificent structure was dedicated in 1908 to . You can see the church from the highway, as its green dome stands out above the city.Once inside the building, I felt as if I had been transported to another time due to the Byzantine-like imagery and colorful mosaics depicting Biblical themes on its walls and domed ceiling.I was instantly struck with awe, not just with its beauty but with the message clearly being sent. I sat down in one of the pews toward the front so I could tilt my head back and scan the beautiful mosaics across the ceiling.My eyes came to a stop when I looked up and over to the left.



"And it shall come to pass afterward, that I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT ON ALL FLESH; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions.Even on the male and female servants IN THOSE DAYS I WILL POUR OUT MY SPIRIT". The context of this prophecy was that because of Judah's sin the plagues of both locusts and drought were impending on the country.Those words were a prophecy spoken by the Prophet Joel around 800 B. Judah had descended into 'spiritual' poverty, drunkenness, and religious formalism. What wasn't destroyed by the locusts was wiped out by the drought, including their cattle and flocks of sheep. These people had moved away from God and could no longer sense His presence. Now, apart from God's presence, they found themselves in a 'dry place'. By analogy, Joel prophesied that a day was coming when God was not going to withhold water, symbolic in the Bible of the Holy Spirit, but was going to pour out His Spirit on everyone.Not to mention, the drought would also deplete their water supply. Like any other prophecy in Scripture, there would be an expected future time of fulfillment.

Approximately 800 years later and just weeks after Jesus' Resurrection, Joel's prophecy began to be fulfilled.

There were 120 people who had gotten together over a 10-day period to seek God and pray.
