What were the apostles suppose to be for Jesus???
And, what were the apostles suppose to wait for???
46 He told [[[them,]]](APOSTLES)This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day,
47 [[[[[and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.]]]]]
48 ~~~~~You are witnesses of these things.~~~~~
49 I am going to SEND YOU (APOSTLES) what my Father has PROMISED; but [[[[[stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.]]]]]
Apostles were going to receive the Holy Spirit Baptism....beginning of Acts Chapter 1....apostles have to be WITNESSES.....

John 20: 22
22 And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
now since that has been settled as to WHEN they received the holy Ghost, you now need to know what this "Power on High"was, dont you? when you find out then, tell me.lol
I can read it and tell you easily. but I aint going to tell you, since you cant understand the Things of God.
and I am a [Witness] to you. I wondered WHY God wanted me to tell you in my last post to you.
