The Book of Acts

Acts  Chapter 1:6-8

Verses 6-7  Acts 1:6-7 “Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying ‘Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?’  And He said to them, ‘It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority,”  NKJV  Some things the apostles still didn’t know about the kingdom, especially the timing.  Old Testament prophets spoke of the coming of the Lord’s kingdom. 

Daniel 7:13-14 “I was watching in the night visions, And behold, One like the Son of Man, Coming with the clouds of heaven!  He came to the Ancient of Days, And they brought Him near before Him.  Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, That all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him.  His dominion is an everlasting dominion, Which shall not pass away, And His kingdom the one Which shall not be destroyed.”  NKJV  [His ascension]  Mark 9:1  “And He said to them, Assuredly, I say to you that there are some standing here who will not taste death till they see the kingdom of God present with power.”  NKJV  Ephesians 1:20-23  “which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is also in that which is to come.  And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.”  NKJV

Verse 8  Acts 1:8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”  NKJV  The apostles would receive power when the Holy Spirit came upon them.  This is the baptism of the Holy Spirit.  See Luke 24:49  “Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.”  NKJV  [the promise of the Father]  Also Acts 1:5  “for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.”  NKJV  The apostles would become witnesses to Jesus’ resurrection because they had actually seen it.  Acts 1:21-22  “Therefore, of these men who have accompanied us all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from the baptism of John to that day when He was taken up from us, one of these must become a witness with us of His resurrection.”  NKJV
