Ascension. Part-Two.


Promised Holy Spirit.

Jesus had to leave, but He will return one day for all who have placed their faith and trust in Him. Jesus told his followers to go and wait in Jerusalem for the promised Holy Spirit to be poured out so that the believers could be empowered to serve God. Mark 16:19-20.

This they did and these tremendous events happened. Today the ‘Church/Ekklesia is the largest religious movement on the planet, but then it was a very small group of Jews and a couple of Gentiles. All followed the Jewish Messiah of Israel, which we continue to do today. Acts 2, Joel 2:28-32.

Without the power of the Holy spirit within the believer we are nothing and religion is an empty repeatable religious tradition. Good works and trying in our own estimation will not save us from eternal damnation, only faith and trust in Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection from the dead will do that.
