People's Bible Notes for Acts 1:12


Ac 1:12 Then returned they . . . from the mount called Olivet. See Lu 24:50. The place of ascent was near Bethany. A church now stands on the supposed place. A sabbath day's journey. "The traditions of the elders" defined the distance that might be traveled on the Sabbath. It was a little less than a mile. Bethany is nearly two miles, but Luke here is stating the distance of the Mount of Olives from the city.

    An external kingdom wd be no threat to Satan, As our carnal mind is his seat the very enemy of God,thus the kingdom has to be INTERNAL, WITH IN US,thats y the good seed is sown in our hearts that Christ might be born in us,Destroying our propensity to sin, As them that are born of God cannot sin, That good seed is gonna remain with in us which is christ in us,TH SON OF MAN MEANING MANKINDS FRUIT.

    That which is of the flesh is flesh and that which is of the Spirit is spirit made of the True and Genuine Temple Made without Hands which is Christ in you. Anyone can read the Holy Bible backwords and forwords and never recieve anything except it be given him from above beloved. Christ in you is the master key to the Words interpretation via. divine revealation of His Holy Word. Shalom.

    This book is the caveat or stepping stone to the book of Romans that runs through to the book of Jude and stops their and not Revelation. Why ? Because we are the church age or gentiles Kingdom of God temporary age of{ Grace-Salvation-Holy Ghost-Nine Manifestations thereof} which is the blueprint Paul set forth us all. This is where we should all be at and doing. HOPE = RESTORATION = ELIJAH.
