But You Will Receive Power. <Ac1:6-8>




* Two important factors before receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit


1) Clearly understand the deeds and teachings of Jesus


2) Clearly understand the things of the Heavenly Kingdom


Read: <Acts 1:6-8>


<Ac 1:6>: Disciples did not understand the nature of the Heavenly Kingdom and its relationship with the Holy Spirit.

* Revival - Political and territorial concept 

* Israel - Desire for a kingdom as a nation

* At this time - Desire to establish it now


<Ac 1:7>: The establishment of the ultimate Kingdom is not now, and it is not for you to know when .

* Knowing will not benefit your life

* Do not put the focus on the Kingdom to come, but on the Kingdom in the present


<Ac 1:8>: Holy Spirit → Power → Witness for Christ → From current location to ends of the earth.
