The Book of Acts

The Acts of the Apostles is one of the most prominent books of the Bible.  It is the bridge between the Old Dispensation Temple and the New Dispensation Church.  It lays the foundation for the methodical spreading of the Gospel and the works of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 1:8 is by far, one of the most powerful and  prophetic statements in the Book.  It is here that Jesus gives the Apostles specific instructions on how this New testament church will grow…

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. “
