Latter Rain

Creative writing

I woke up to the sound of voices outside I got out of my bed and I walked out onto the balcony of my apartment. I saw thousands of people crowded in the streets and it looked like every body was sorta facing the same way. I pushed my way through the crowd and saw a whole bunch of people talking if different languages. I heard one of them saying the end is near prepare yourselves for the second coming of God.
Hi my name is Joe, I will be telling you the story of the latter pentecost. I didn’t really believe in God until then, this is the story of how I became a Christian and devoted my whole lie to God.
It all started on Saturday, September 15, 2020. Like I said earlier I woke up and I heard voices outside.
I was in the crowd listing to the people talk about the end is near most of the people were talking to each other saying that they were crazy and they didn’t know what they were talking about. I just went back up to my apartment to just watch some t.v but when I got up to my apartment I couldn’t find my keys. Then I heard a voice telling me to go back down and listen to what they were saying. I thought I was going crazy.

I was getting frustrated by now and the only thing I hadn’t tried was turning the door nob. I turned it and of course it opened, I was so mad at myself, then I saw my keys on the coffee table in front of my couch. I looked at them and walked over and sat on the couch. I reached to grab the remote where it usually is, of course it wasn’t there. Man I was just having a bad day today, first a whole bunch of crazy people are outside my apartment on the street, secondly I couldn’t find my keys and the door was open, thirdly I couldn’t find my stupid remote.

I decided that I was gonna just go down and listen to these people talk. I went down there and there was nobody there. I was so confused and angry that I just went to Starbucks to get a coffee. Then thought maybe those people in the streets had a point. There was so many people it had to of meant something. I got my coffee and went over to the local Seventh Day Adventist Church. There was yet again a preacher babbling on about how the end of the world is coming.
I sat down in a pew in the back of the church and listened to him. It finally started making sense.
He told the story about the first Pentecost and why it happened and stuff like that. Then he started explaining that in the bible it talked about the latter Pentecost, which had of been today because it sounded so similar.

I decided I wanted to get baptized.

It seemed like a lot of people were getting baptized that day, there was even a huge line of people. I finally got to the front of the line put on a white robe and the priest said some words like, “I now baptize you in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.” He dunked me under the water and rose me back up it was like the words of God just hit me in the face, it was crazy. I went out and started baptizing people myself and there was a whole bunch of people that got baptized that day it was crazy.

If you want to hear the rest of my story kids I suggest coming back to Sabbath school next week.

The End
