Let's open the Word of God now to the book of Acts and we're going to look at the section from verse 12 all the way down to the end of the chapter, with the small hope that we would ever be able to cover all of it. And that's perfectly all right. We'll go as far as we need to go.

Acts chapter 1, beginning at verse 12. And since I'm not sure how far we're going to go, we'll wait to read it as we go through it. The glorious goal of God and the history of redemption is right on schedule. It always is on schedule, always has been on schedule. And as we are flowing through the book of Acts we have established the fact that redemption has so far had three great elements. First of all, the Old Testament, full of promises which are all yes and amen in Jesus, meaning He is the one who fulfills them all, the whole of the Old Testament moves in the direction of the arrival of Christ. And then the next great movement in redemptive history is the gospels, the four gospels which tell of His arrival and His accomplishment and His departure, which is the fulfillment of the Old Testament and describes the work that He began. Then we come to the book of Acts and this is the next great, sweeping volume in the history of redemption, God's continuing work as the apostles preach the gospel and established churches to gather the believers and equip them to continue to fulfill the Great Commission. And this section goes on being written through all of human history until the return of Christ....
