Acts 1: 2-5 (KJV)
April 12, 2018, 11:13 AM

    Acts 1: 2-5 states, “Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen:  To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:  And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.  For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.

    After his resurrection, Jesus appeared to his disciples, and others that were part of his inner circle.  I like the 3rd verse of Acts chapter 1 where it says, “he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs”.  The ones Jesus appeared to had no doubt that he was alive and well.  Their previous three days of despair and total loss was turned into joy and total victory.  Because of this, they could stand in the faith of Jesus and “wait for the promise of the Father”.  They were all still in Jerusalem, the same city that just a few days before had demanded that Jesus be crucified.  However, because of the appearing of Jesus, they were emboldened to “tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.”

    Has Jesus appeared to you?  Titus 2:11 states,  “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men.”  If you have received Jesus into your heart and experienced the baptism of the Holy Ghost, cherish it, hold on to it, it is truly the most valuable treasure in this life.  But more importantly, share it with a lost world.  I am convinced that this world needs Jesus as much today as it did in the days of Jesus.  Share the love of God and let his light shine.

    If you have not experienced the baptism of the Holy Ghost, then pray that Jesus will appear to you in revelation.  2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.  Jesus left his home in heaven, walked this earth, suffered and died, but he arose so he could restore communion between God and man.  He died for each and every one of us.  Even if you were the only person on earth, he would have done it all for you.  So, during this Easter season, experience the new life you can have in Jesus.  It will be the best experience you will ever have.
