ACT - 1

Jesus came to the disciples, telling them to remain in Jerusalem until they received what was promised, "...which ye have heard of Me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence."

They asked Him if this was the time for restoration of the kingdom of Israel, and He answered, "It is not for you to know the times or the seasons which the Father hath put in his own power. But 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."

ACT - 9

Saul, on his way to persecute the followers of Jesus, drew near to Damascus; and such a great light shown around him that he fell to the ground. A voice said to him, "Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou Me?"

Saul asked who was speaking, and the voice said, "I am Jesus, who thou persecutest. It is hard for thee to kick against the pricks." Saul recognized this as the Lord and asked what he was to do. "Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do." Paul was struck blind, and went into the city as he was instructed.

In Damascus, a disciple received a vision of the Lord, who called him, "Ananias. Arise and go into the street which is called straight; and enquire in the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus. For behold he prayeth, and hath seen in a vision a man named Ananias coming in and putting his hand on him that he might receive his sight."

Ananias told the vision that he had heard of the man and the evil he was doing. The vision responded, "Go thy way, for he is a chosen vessel unto Me to bear my name before the gentiles and kings and the Children of Israel; for I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake."
