The Operation of the Holy Spirit

Acts 1:1–11 NKJV
The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, until the day in which He was taken up, after He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments to the apostles whom He had chosen, to whom He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs, being seen by them during forty days and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God. And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
Two little girls, playmates, who were counting over their pennies, because they were on there way to the store to get candy. One said, “I have five pennies.” The other said, “I have ten.”  "No,” said the first little girl, “You have just five cents, the same as I.”  "But,” the second child quickly replied, “my father said that when he came home tonight, he would give me five cents, and so I have ten cents.” The child’s faith gave her proof of that which she did not as yet see, and she counted it as being already hers, because it had been already promised by her father.
What Luke does is bridges the Gospel and the Book of Acts. Many Bible scholars attribute the writing of Acts to Luke. What Luke does with Acts is shares that God’s Promise has come Pass.
When God makes a promise, you and I as believers can be rest assured that the promise will come to pass. The promise of the Holy Spirit which is the third person of the Trinity as given by the prophets and also by Christ. We believe in God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. Three person, One God.

In the Gospels the Son of Man offered his life; in Acts the Son of God offered his power. The Gospels model the Christian life as lived by the perfect Man; Acts models it as lived out by imperfect men.
