Let not your heart be troubled

Acts 1:
Acts 1:1–11 KJV 1900
The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach, Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And 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. 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. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which 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.

.First of all
1. We see the encouragement that Christ gives to His disciples when he says Let not your heart be troubled.
They had just finished the last passover where Christ institutes and replaces the Passover with the Lords Supper, and they were troubled because the Lord had again began to tell them how that He would die and rise from the dead, and how that He would leave to prepare a place for His Church (His Bride) and would come again.
2.Secondly we see the Promise of new Jerusalem
look at verse 2 of John chapter 14
Let us understand that you can not believe the way I just explained because that leaves no place for us to place the entire Old testament believers for as they are also Gods children saved by faith they looking toward what Christ was going to do on Calvary placing faith in his death burial and resurrection, and repenting of the sin of unbelief are born again as we, where in heaven can you put those who are not part of the church seeing that Christ started the church during his earthly ministry hundreds of years after the old testament saints.
The Bible is way to clear on who the bride is to say that the bride includes the Old Testament saints is a self opinionated anti Biblical interpretation of Holy Scripture.

But ye shall receive ppower, 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. 9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 11 Which 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.
