    I 'believe Its a blessing to have human people to be use by for gods purpose.

    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
    In this chapter we learn that David prophesied that another would take the office of apostleship after Judas. It is amazing how the apostles used the scriptures (old testament) to direct their steps and thereby fulfill the word that was written by the prophets.

    Amen Irene. Acts 2:38. And today the pastor said the same about Acts, that it is the beginning the church.
