“Witnesses to Me” (Acts 1:1-26)
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2014
Posted by: The Gospel Church | more..


“And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, ‘which,’ He said, ‘you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.’ Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, ‘Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?’ And He said to them, ‘It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (vs4-8)

Jesus both did and taught, and so must we, living uprightly and proclaiming the kingdom: it is not one or the other. Luke says, “The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God (vs1-3).”

Our job is to witness, testifying of the Lord Jesus, living for His kingdom instead of ourselves, so that others may be saved. He says, “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me [My witnesses] in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” This objective sanctifies life as the Spirit reveals Christ to us and empowers our service: it is done in full acceptance by the finished work of Christ, and it manifests itself in loving others (Rom 4:5-8; John 13:12-17). This godly wisdom is from above, manifests itself in truth and love, and this business supercedes all others. We do not speculate about the Kingdom; we work by God’s power, looking to Christ in forgiveness and behaving like Christ towards others.

Don't concern yourself with experiences, feelings, and staring at the clouds, but use the knowledge of Christ for sowing and reaping. We read, “Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, ‘Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven (vs9-11).” Ecclesiastes 11:4-6, says, “He who observes the wind will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap. As you do not know what is the way of the wind, or how the bones grow in the womb of her who is with child, so you do not know the works of God who makes everything. In the morning sow your seed, and in the evening do not withhold your hand [labor for the Kingdom]; For you do not know which will prosper, either this or that, or whether both alike will be good.” There is work to be done, souls to be saved, and a kingdom to be built, and we are God’s co-workers (1 Cor 3:5-15): He uses us because He commissioned us, and we have something to do. Let study lead to labor and hearing to action, so that we advance the cause of Christ. He's independent, but He uses men.

Secondly, Mary is the mother of Jesus, but not God. As God, He existed before her, but He came into the world through her womb, and she had other children, His brothers, after Jesus was born. We read, “Then they returned to Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is near Jerusalem, a Sabbath day’s journey. And when they had entered, they went up into the upper room where they were staying: Peter, James, John, and Andrew; Philip and Thomas; Bartholomew and Matthew; James the son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot; and Judas the son of James. These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with His brothers (Acts 1:12-14).” In all things, we worship God alone, and Jesus is the ONE Mediator, the ONE Savior, and He alone is the reason we have reconciliation, access, and redemption. Grace comes through Jesus Christ: the Object of faith. Mary prayed with the others, but she did not lead, and they DID NOT pray to her.

If we misuse our privileges, then we’ll give ourselves to Satan, when we could have had God. Judas had everything and gave it up for nothing, betraying the Son: Learn from the falls of others and TRUST Christ in your sin and temptation; do not go back to the world, live for the world, or reject the sufferings of the Kingdom. We read, “For it is written in the Book of Psalms: ‘Let his dwelling place be desolate, and let no one live in it’;

and, ‘Let another take his office.’ We have a short time to serve Him and then live forever in perfection. Get GRACE (Heb 12:28-29)!

Finally, God works with us on earth, so that things done by the church are approved by Him. We read, “And they proposed two: Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias. And they prayed and said, ‘You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two You have chosen to take part in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.’ And they cast their lots, and the lot fell on Matthias. And he was numbered with the eleven apostles (vs23-26).” Peter and the others chose Matthias and Joseph, and they left the true choice to God, and He blessed it, using Matthias and giving him the signs of the apostles (Acts 5:12-13). Likewise, when the church preaches peace, God preaches peace, and when we work, He works with us according to Scripture. Jesus said, “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven (Matt 18:18).” We are NOT alone: we have a great commission, and He’s with us to get it done! You have Someone to live for, not yourself, but Christ and the spreading of His name. This is why He left us here, and He works through us to build His Kingdom. Be about the Master’s business by the Spirit: go in forgiveness and cleansing, making Him known as the door opens.
