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.

I love the fact that they all came together to pray to seek the approval of GOD before they replaced Judas with Matthias, if we would do this kind of praying and really seeking GOD way when it come to our pulpits today and other positions we would really have some really good churchs and more sinners would give their lives to the LORD.


William's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 9/10/2015, 1:07pm...

This is in the setting of actions commands and administrative duties I think the apostles received revelation from the Lord as he left this planet Stadium and they obeyed and went to the upper room to receive the baptism in the fire of the Holy Ghost they were just laying foundation to begin their ministry through the Holy Spirit that's it nothing difficult thank you


Irene's Acts Chapter 1 comment about verse 1 on 8/21/2015, 7:37am...

It seems to me that as Christians we love to teach, preach and say, but to do the actions that ministry calls for are not readily being witnessed in the Body of Christ. Our witness sometimes calls for rolling up of sleeves in behalf of others. These actions speak more of the reality of Christ than words


HARVEY FARLEY's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 8/20/2015, 6:35pm...

To me it's speaking of life its self .And God is living in all life on earth and thorough man he's will for man is life .And he is all power over life from the start of life to the end of mans on earth as it is now on earth .And all is bless just have one from him with mans help creating it with out him no life of man would be

Angela Moore's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 7/06/2015, 12:05pm...

They Holy Ghost is giving to all that believe, He is a person third person in the God-head, He only comes in a ready heart and dwells in a clean temple which is your body. He will not speak of Himself but will testify of Jesus and bring all these to your remembers of Jesus what taught. I will change your language you will speak in other tongues as the spirit give utterance. The apostles were waiting on the promise from God the Father the He had Promise to give to all the believe.


Edwin Agbi's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 7/05/2015, 4:43am...

Jesus walk,talk, eat and do everything with them but His main purpose is to dwell in his followers, which is the holy-ghost he promise them. JESUS is the FATHER,the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT, and this are just tittles but the real Name is THE LORD JESUS CHRIST and beside him there is no other GOD. The name of The Almighty GOD is JESUS CHRIST.


Lilian's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 6/27/2015, 1:09am...

Jesus is the Son of the Living God and he has given a full authority to forgive sins, heal the sick and give life to us in abundance. As our Heavenly Father have anointed Jesus to save us because of his love that endures forever. By accepting God 's words we recieved power of God. Thanks to Jesus for leading us into the Living Water. Amen
