Luke 24:49—And behold, I send forth the promise of My Father upon you; but as for you, stay in the city until you put on power from on high.
Acts 2:1, 4—And as the day of Pentecost was being fulfilled, they were all together in the same place…And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, even as the Spirit gave to them to speak forth.
Acts 4:31—And when they had so besought, the place in which they were gathered was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness.
