Jesus appeared to His disciples over a period of forty days between His resurrection and ascension. He ministered to them and spoke to them about the Kingdom of God.
He told them not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for the gift His Father had promised… the gift of the Holy Spirit.
The apostles asked Him if He was going to restore the Kingdom of Israel at this time. In verse 7, Jesus tells them it is not for them to know the times and dates the Father has set by His own authority!
He told them they would receive the power of the Holy Spirit when He comes on them and they were to be His witnesses until He comes again.
Great reminder for me or for anyone waiting on the Lord’s answer or waiting for Him to move in a particular situation.
He has the timing all worked out by His own authority. When He’s ready to let us in on it, He will.
Until then, we are to continue to live and walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and to let others see Him living through us.
