THE COMING OUT-POURING OF THE SPIRIT

One of the most precious portions of Scripture is
found in Joel, verses 26 and 27 of the 2nd chapter. In
verses 25, 26 and 27 we read of the restoration of
Israel, God says: "I will restore to you the years

the Church. Israel means Israel. "You shall know that
I'm in the midst of Israel, and that I'm the Lord your
God and none else; and my people shall never be
ashamed." This is said twice. Never again will they be
