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.

Hello James In order to be in the body of Jesus Christ you have to follow Acts 2 38. You have to be born of water and of spirit in order to get into heaven. You cannot even see the kingdom of God with being born again through water baptism and the Holy Ghost which is the spirit of God, John 3 1 thru 8.

For one sewth a seed and another worketh the field and still another reapest the harvest. All work as one member being the body of Christ.


Insight 777's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 11/13/2014, 10:47am...

Verse 26.. they wanted to chose a man that had been with Jesus and the other apostles, one that had the greatest knowledge of his teachings. There must have been a discussion during their selection of the person most qualified to teach the words of God. That person would also be witness to the resurrection, a key qualification for selection. Casting lots is not gambling, it is like casting a vote. The vote was given after the qualifications, the experiences and spiritual understanding, of the men were taken into consideration. To even be considered, both were honorable men. Since their role of an apostle depended on the person having good outgoing personality, one that could easily strike up a conversation with a stranger, perhaps this was taken into consideration also. To teach the word one can not be shy.

James, I hope that people believe in Acts 2 38 before it is to late. We are truly living in the last days. The tribulation period is going to be very bad. I hope that people get truly saved. I am preaching the Apostles Doctrine which began on the day of Pentecost. This is when the church began.

Part 2. I know this is strange to you because you were taught different all your life. But adjust to the Bible not the Bible to your beliefs. The gospel of the Kindgom of Heaven is for a literal set up of the Kingdom of Heaven thats why Jesus and John the Baptist said repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand in Matt 3 2and vs 17. It was literally at hand if they would have received it Matt 11 14. Now the Kingdom of God is not meat and drink, Rom 14 17, that is it 's not physical. But when the church is caught out see 1 Thess 4 16thru18 the Kingdom gospel will be preached again because it will be at hand again. The gospel went to the Jew first Matt 10 5. You are preaching a JEWISH gospel and not of the grace of God.


James's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 11/04/2014, 10:50am...

No mistake there. Jesus is STANDING at the right hand of the Father in vers 55 when he was sitting see Acts 2 34. The church age was a mystery revealed to Paul see Gal 1 11thru12 and Eph 3 3. Jesus could have came back in Acts 7 if they would have received Stephens message. After their rejection, God goes to the Gentiles and saved Paul to be their apostle Acts 9 15. He revealed this switch to Peter in Acts 10 and he agreed with Paul in Acts 15 6thru11. Now if you preach the gospel of the Kingdom and not of the grace of God you are preaching a false gospel for this church age and are cursed Gal 1 8thru9.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 11/04/2014, 8:58am...

Hello James I think you are mistaken, in reference to Acts Chapter 7. Stephen was a saint of God holding up the belief in Jesus Christ. Stephen was full of the Holy Ghost, Acts 6 5. Acts Chapter 7, Stephen was brought into the courts falsely accused of blasphemy. This chapter is dedicated to Stephen defense, recounts of the Old Testament before the Sanhedrin and for the belief in Christ. He was later stoned to death. We know that some Jews mostly those hypocrites of the higher order of the Jews did reject Christ. However, the Apostles were Jews. The first Gentiles that were filled with the Holy Ghost were Cornelius and his house, Acts Chapter 10.


James's Acts Chapter 1 comment on 11/03/2014, 3:05pm...

Part 2. The Jews require a sign see 1 Cor 1 22 so tongues are given in chapters 2, 10, 19 to confirm to the Jews that Gentiles are able to get saved see Acts 10 45. Signs of an Apostle see 2 Cor 12 12 were given before the scriptures were completed to confirm Gods word See Mark 16 20. Once the words were given the signs died out see 1 Tim 5 23, 2 Tim 4 20 for examples. If you dont get this you will be deceived by the devil 2 Thess 2 9, Rev 13 12thru15. Hope this helps.
