1 The former treatise haue I made, O Theophilus, of al that Iesus began both to doe and teach,

2 Untill the day in which hee was taken vp, after that he through the holy Ghost had giuen commaundements vnto the Apostles, whom he had chosen.

3 To whom also he shewed himselfe aliue after his passion, by many infallible proofes, being seene of them fourty dayes, and speaking of the things perteining to the kingdome of God:

4 And being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Hierusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye haue heard of me.

5 For Iohn truely baptized with water, but ye shall be baptized with the holy Ghost, not many dayes hence.

6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore againe the kingdome to Israel?

7 And he said vnto them, It is not for you to knowe the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his owne power.

8 But ye shall receiue power after that the holy Ghost is come vpon you, and ye shall be witnesses vnto me, both in Hierusalem, and in all Iudea, and in Samaria, and vnto the vttermost part of the earth.

9 And when hee had spoken these things, while they beheld, hee was taken vp, and a cloud receiued him out of their sight.

10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heauen, as he went vp, behold, two men stood by them in white apparell,

11 Which also said, Yee men of Galililee, why stand yee gazing vp into heauen? This same Iesus, which is taken vp from you into heauen, shall so come, in like maner as yee haue seene him goe into heauen.

12 Then returned they vnto Hierusalem, from the mount called Oliuet, which is from Hierusalem a Sabbath dayes iourney.

13 And when they were come in, they went vp into an vpper roome, where abode both Peter & Iames, & Iohn, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, Iames the sonne of Alpheus, and Simon Zelotes, and Iudas the brother of Iames.

14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Iesus, and with his brethen.

15 And in those dayes Peter stood vp in the mids of the disciples, and said, (The number of names together were about an hundred and twentie)

16 Men and brethren, This Scripture must needs haue beene fulfilled, which the holy Ghost by the mouth of Dauid spake before concerning Iudas, which was guide to them þt took Iesus.

17 For hee was numbred with vs, and had obtained part of this ministerie.

18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity, and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the mids, and all his bowels gushed out.

19 And it was knowen vnto all the dwellers at Hierusalem, insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.

20 For it is written in the booke of Psalmes, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: And his Bishopricke let another take.

21 Wherefore of these men which haue companied with vs all the time that the Lord Iesus went in and out among vs,

22 Beginning from the baptisme of Iohn, vnto that same day that he was taken vp from vs, must one be ordained to be a witnesse with vs of his resurrection.

23 And they appointed two, Ioseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Iustus, and Matthias.

24 And they prayed, and said, Thou Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,

25 That hee may take part of this ministerie and Apostleship, from which Iudas by transgression fell, that hee might goe to his owne place.

26 And they gaue foorth their lots, and the lot fell vpon Matthias, and hee was numbred with the eleuen Apostles.

Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 10/27/2014, 8:48pm...

Hello Betty James 2 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. If a person just confess with their mouth and have not followed what Peter stated on the day of Pentecost Act 2 38, they are not saved. You must be born of water and spirit in order to get into heaven, John 3 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God . You have to have both, the water and the Spirit which is the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the spirit of God give utterance. You have to have the correct baptism. Jesus said it, Peter clarified it and the Apostles carried it out. The preacher must say over you that I will now baptized you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Try to find a Holy Ghost filled church that follows Acts 2 38.


Betty's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 10/27/2014, 12:19pm...

So, after receiving Jesus as our Savior and redeemer, is it required to have a baptism or are we baptised with the Holy Ghost and not necessarily water?


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 10/22/2014, 6:17am...

Hello Bill I would like to also add that the correct baptism is more than an illustration it is a deed in which man all of mankind has to do under this Grace Age that we are living in. You have to be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. The whole salvation plan must be done in order to make it into heaven.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 10/22/2014, 6:14am...

Hello Bill I like your analogy of the sponge soaking up the water into itself. After you have repented, true repentance, then God according to the promise will give you the gift of the Holy Ghost. God is the only one that can give this gift. He is the only one that knows who has truly repented in his heart. After we repent we are like sponges we take it all in when he gives the Holy Ghost to us with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the spirit of God gives us utterance. In John 7 37 thru 39 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture, hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive for the Holy Ghost was yet given because that Jesus was not yet glorified.


Bill's Acts Chapter 1 comment about verse 5 on 10/21/2014, 7:43pm...

Baptism is a matter of illustration. In our context of Acts 1 2, Jesus said, For John truly baptized with water but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost lit. the quality of the Spirit Acts 1 5 . Water baptism pictures Spirit baptism. When you believe in Jesus for salvation, Spirit baptism occurs as a matter of fact. Spirit baptism is immersion into Christ, thus clothing you with Christ Gal. 3 26 27 . The fact of this provision allows for the function of the life of faith disciples indeed that accesses the power of the Spirit. For example, when a sponge is immersed into water, it is inundated with the water as the water moves into the sponge. Likewise, when you were immersed into Christ, you were inundated with Christ as the Spirit of Christ moved into you. This gift is given at salvation so that you may take from this inexhaustible provision for the rest of your life. Water baptism illustrates this wonderful reality. That is why after Peter told his audience to Repent first event , and then be baptized second event on the basis of the forgiveness of sins, he also told them to receive lit. take the gift of the Holy Ghost Acts 2 38 .


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 10/19/2014, 5:07pm...

Let me clarify when I say Mary has no power. She was filled with the Holy Ghost which is the power from Jesus Christ. This is the resurrection power of God that we need to get out of here. However, she has no power to forgive and stop people from going to hell. Only Jesus Christ and in his name can forgive sin and save people from hell. We are to worship him only. We are not to make graven images and worship them. There are a lot of images of Mary some of which people kneel down and pray to her.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 10/19/2014, 4:51pm...

In the Catholic Order, Mary the mother of Jesus is their center character. They focus their belief around Mary. They pray to her to intercede on their behalf to Jesus. They pray to her for forgiveness. They say Hail Mary full of Grace for many reasons, none of which has anything to do with salvation or forgiveness. Mary has no power. She had to be in the upper room in order to receive the promise like everyone else, Acts Chapter 1 and 2. There is no salvation with her. The Bible states salvation comes through Jesus Christ name, Acts 4 12 Neither is there salvation in any other for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved . If you read verse 10 11 of this same chapter you will find he is talking about Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ should be the focal point of faith, Ephesians 4 5 "One Lord, one faith, one baptism.


Lue forte's Acts Chapter 1 comment about verse 20 on 10/18/2014, 4:31pm...

I believe that in this instant the CHURCH chose MAMMON over the Spirit of GOD, and used the maliciousness to choke the WORD. CHRIST went in the temple and turned over the tables of the money changers, and proclaimed his FATHERS HOUSE will be a house of prayer but they turned it into a den of thieves. the mantle of TRUE FAITH AWAS REJECTED for the gain of greed thru MONEY when they paid in fact to have the true riches of God, thru killing his Son and dspoilng the spoil. and thru money since all other revenue was in silver and gold made these men illuminated onto money of their own backed by their kingdom, inscription, and fame in their part of the EMPIRE. Thru money and religion the CHURCH is most powerful and has legions upon legions tasting of fornication.
