'And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams;
yea, and on my menservants and my maidservants in those days I will pour out my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.

And it shall be that whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.'
