But wouldnt burning someone incur blood, fire, and billows of smoke?
Of course I jest.
Interesting as I have experienced visions of the future in my dreams and my grandfather has had weird dreams lately as well.
I take everything with a grain of salt though.

Unfortunately, that's not speaking of our times, today. That was Peter quoting the Prophet Joel and saying it was being fulfilled THEN, in Peter's time. Read all of Acts 2 in context (I do mean all of it). The pouring of the spirit was fulfilled at Pentecost (Acts 2:1-4), and the gifts (prophesying, etc.) was also fulfilled at Pentecost (and in the years immediately following).
And, before anyone says that "the last days" refers to our time, consider this:
In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.
The "last days" began when Christ came the first time.
