God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it. 33 Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear. 34 For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said,
“‘The Lord said to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death —
even death on a cross!
9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.
“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John,
- Taken from a John MacArthur sermon. When Jesus said He didn’t know (Matthew 24:36), He is saying that through His suffering He was made small and was dependent on the Father for His care, protection and even His knowledge of the universe and the things to come. Otherwise why did He pray, if He weren’t dependent on Father?
- Jesus was given:
o Exaltation to the Right Hand.
o All authority.
o The delivery of the Holy Spirit, so He could return (unless I leave...John 16:7)
But very truly I tell you, it is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Advocate will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.
o The book of Revelation as He was given all authority (Matt 28:18-20)
• Look again at verse 1, God gave this book to His son, to show Him His inheritance.
