Ac 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication. The latter clause is omitted in the Revised Version. They were waiting for the "promise of the Father" (Ac 1:4), and the time was spent in worship. There were ten days of prayer, the best preparation for the Pentecostal blessing; an example to all churches which seek an ingathering of souls. With the women.

    Jesus here assured his disciples that they would receive the power of the holy spirit in order for them to continue the preaching work. That same spirit is needed today in order to preach the good news. We should ask God for holy spirit when we pray.

    The Holy Spirit is Jesus. In Matthew 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
    Jesus said in the NAME. These 3 TITLES have a NAME. Lets look at the scriptures for the NAME. In John 5:23 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.
  • Maria Morales
