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.

Andrew's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 9/16/2014, 9:13pm...

In response of affirmation to Evangelist Chatauna Robinson 's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 9 12 2014, 9 03am.. True religion Bible based Christianity is always based on Father worship. Any religion with "mother " worship is harlot worship.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 9/12/2014, 9:03am...

In verses 13, 14, 15, you find all the people who were waiting in the upper room for the promise of the power of God which is the Holy Ghost. God had the writer write the names of those people. Why? The reason is so that no one would worship these individuals, especially Mary the mother of Jesus. God wanted everyone to know how important receiving the Holy Ghost was with the evidence of speaking with other tongues as the spirit of God give them utterance. Some people pray to Mary. Why? Mary cannot save anybody or forgive sin. You do not have to go to her to get to Jesus Christ who is both Lord and Christ. Mary had to get the Holy Ghost just like everybody else. She carried Jesus Christ who is both Lord and Christ for nine months, but she still had to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost in order to go to heaven.


Ian's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 9/10/2014, 4:48pm...

My previous comments about disobeying I would like to rescind. Mt Olivet is outside the walls of Jerusalem. The command to stay and then the verse that they returned is cause for question. If they were commanded on the mount to stay then they obeyed by returning and receiving the Holy Ghost.


Ian's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 9/07/2014, 12:23pm...

If only they had waited they would have received the promise, they disobeyed. If they didn 't get the promise what did they get??? 4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. 12 Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a sabbath day 's journey.


Rachel's Acts Chapter 1 comment about verse 5 on 8/28/2014, 4:16pm...

I don 't know why people insist on putting doubt in other 's minds. I endured a lot of unnecessary things because of this. If anyone wants the holy ghost to speak in tongues u can. I was one that believed that if God doesn't decide to bless me with it I 'll never get it because of what I had been told by so many people. I have come to the realization that people say speaking in tongues doesn't matter because they haven 't or it is not beneficial to their ministry to teach this hint hint . God would not keep something a great as the holy spirit away from certain individuals just because. Baptized is a verb something has to take place. So when the bible says baptized by water and spirit it 's not to be taken lightly. There was a differentiation between water and spirit. Please don 't let nay sayers block what Jesus has for you.


Cj Babia's Acts Chapter 1 comment about verse 8 on 8/23/2014, 3:32pm...

He is the 3rd personal of God. As a Christian be lead and guid by the Holy Spirit. We need your anointing Come with power


Yvan kanyandekwe's Acts Chapter 1 comment about verse 8 on 7/30/2014, 4:59am...

The Holy Spirit is not power ,but He is God Acts5 3,4,9 and the Giver of power.When you receive The Holy Ghost,He gives you power.


Bro Ojo Victor's Acts Chapter 1 comment about verse 8 on 7/28/2014, 2:39pm...

The power and zeal to witness is to be endue by the Holy spirit. It takes away fear and fill us with Faith, confidence with confirmation of signs and wonders.
