The Book of Acts

Chapter 1:9-11

Verses 9-11  Acts 1:9-11  “Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight.  And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, ‘Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven?  This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”  NKJV

It was now time for Jesus to return to heaven to be with the Father.  Recall John 7:33-34.  “Then Jesus said to them, “I shall be with you a little while longer, and then I go to Him who sent Me.  You will seek Me and not find Me, and where I am you cannot come.”  NKJV 

His ascension took place on the Mount of Olives.  Acts 1:12 “Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey.”  NKJV  He is going home to glory. 

I Peter 3:22 “who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.”  NKJV  Psalm 2:1-7 “Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing?  The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us.  He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision.  Then He shall speak to them in His wrath, And distress them in His deep displeasure:  Yet I have set My King On My holy hill of Zion.  I will declare the decree; The Lord has said to Me, You are My Son,”  NKJV 

Acts 4:23-28 “And being let go, they went to their own companions and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said to them.  So when they heard that, they raised their voice to God with one accord and said:  Lord, You are God, who made heaven and earth and the sea, and all that is in them.  who by the mouth of Your servant David have said: Why did the nations rage, And the people plot vain things?  The kings of the earth took their stand, And the rulers were gathered together Against the Lord and against His Christ.  For truly against Your holy Servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, were gathered together to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose determined before to be done.”  NKJV  Isaiah 52:13 “Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently; He shall be exalted and extolled and be very high.”  NKJV

Two angels appeared to help prepare the apostles.  They tell the apostles that Jesus is really gone.  His work is now up to them.  But He would return one day in the same manner in which He left.  His return will be visible, in the clouds, at an unexpected time and with power. 

Revelation 1:7  Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him.  And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him.  Even so, Amen.  NKJV 

I Thessalonians 5:2  “For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night.”  NKJV 

Hebrews 9:27-28 “And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many.  To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.”  NKJV 

I John 2:28 “And now, little children, abide in Him, that when He appears, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.”  NKJV
