Prophesy


Peter Preaching

Peter Preaching

Acts 2:17-18 And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy.

Peter is preaching a sermon and begins it by quote the prophet Joel in Joel 2. I shared only half of it because the point I am wanting to make is here in these two verses.

He quoted Joel and then at the end of verse 18 Peter added a phrase that was not found in Joel’s prophesy. Actual, it is mentioned once but Peter took it upon himself to add it a second time for emphasis, “And they shall prophesy.”

Why should Peter choose to emphasize prophesying? It would seem to be a key to what the Holy Spirit is wanting to do. Acts 11:27; Acts 21:8-9; 1 Corinthians 14:1-5,31

1 Corinthians 14:1 Pursue love, and desire spiritual gifts, but especially that you my prophesy.
