The Holy Spirit Fell:
„Ñ And Individually!
John 3:8 ¡§The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can¡¦t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can¡¦t explain how people are born of the Spirit.¡¨ (NLT)
4) Pentecost displays the plan of God! Vs. 5-11
When people are confronted with the power of the Holy Spirit they will ask, ¡§Whatever could this mean?¡¨
