Jesus is Coming (Acts 1:6-11)Pastor Travis Cardwell, July 13, 2008
Part of the The Church Unstoppable (Acts) series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Are there times in your day or seasons in your life when you feel weak or alone or defeated? It is true that our time on earth is filled with trials and despair yet fortunately for God's children we have hope. Through the gift of the Holy Spirit we have a Comforter and an Advocate and a Counselor and a Guide who intercedes for us, who emboldens us, who brings us conviction and assurance, and who brings us power. We are in desperate need of the power of the Holy Spirit to kill sin, and to evangelize those around us. What a gift the Holy Spirit is! Travis continues our Acts series "The Church Unstoppable" with the message"Jesus is Coming!"

6When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? 7And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 8But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. 9And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. (KJV)
