The above scriptures is to be read in conjunction with earlier passages, which is Luke: 24. 46. and he said unto them, Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer, and rise again from the dead the third day; 47. and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name unto all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. 48. Ye are witnesses of these things. 49. And behold, I send forth the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city, until ye be clothed with power from on high.

It is important to be reminded that Jesus is the Messiah or Christ that came to redeemed us from our sins. And it was God’s plan that he be crucified and raised from the dead. There it is a covenant of God with His children through the blood of the lamb. For only a one off sacrifice from a purest lamb can only set is b free from our generational sins that started from the Garden of Eden.

By the Word of God we praise and thank you for sending Jesus for our sins and we pray that we will be witnesses to the promises that God had made for us thought Christ Jesus. Amen.
