Acts 1:8
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
Acts 2:14-41
14
But Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice, and proclaimed to them: "Jewish men and all you residents of Jerusalem, let this be known to you and pay attention to my words.
15
For these people are not drunk, as you suppose, since it's only nine in the morning.
16
On the contrary, this is what was spoken through the prophet Joel:
17
And it will be in the last days, says God, that I will pour out My Spirit on all humanity; then your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams.
18
I will even pour out My Spirit on My male and female slaves in those days, and they will prophesy.
19
I will display wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth below: blood and fire and a cloud of smoke.
20
The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and remarkable day of the Lord comes;
21
then whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
22
"Men of Israel, listen to these words: This Jesus the Nazarene was a man pointed out to you by God with miracles, wonders, and signs that God did among you through Him, just as you yourselves know.
23
Though He was delivered up according to God's determined plan and foreknowledge, you used lawless people to nail Him to a cross and kill Him.
24
God raised Him up, ending the pains of death, because it was not possible for Him to be held by it.
25
For David says of Him: I saw the Lord ever before me; because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
26
Therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced. Moreover my flesh will rest in hope,
27
because You will not leave my soul in Hades, or allow Your Holy One to see decay.
28
You have revealed the paths of life to me; You will fill me with gladness in Your presence.
29
"Brothers, I can confidently speak to you about the patriarch David: he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.
30
Since he was a prophet, he knew that God had sworn an oath to him to seat one of his descendants on his throne.
31
Seeing this in advance, he spoke concerning the resurrection of the Messiah: He was not left in Hades, and His flesh did not experience decay.
32
"God has resurrected this Jesus. We are all witnesses of this.
33
Therefore, since He has been exalted to the right hand of God and has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit, He has poured out what you both see and hear.
34
For it was not David who ascended into the heavens, but he himself says: The Lord said to my Lord, 'Sit at My right hand
35
until I make Your enemies Your footstool.'
36
"Therefore let all the house of Israel know with certainty that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah!"
37
When they heard this, they were pierced to the heart and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles: "Brothers, what must we do?"
38
"Repent," Peter said to them, "and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus the Messiah for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
39
For the promise is for you and for your children, and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call."
40
And with many other words he testified and strongly urged them, saying, "Be saved from this corrupt generation!"
41
So those who accepted his message were baptized, and that day about 3,000 people were added to them.
Acts 3:12-26
12
When Peter saw this, he addressed the people: "Men of Israel, why are you amazed at this? Or why do you stare at us, as though by our own power or godliness we had made him walk?
13
The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His Servant Jesus, whom you handed over and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release Him.
14
But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked to have a murderer given to you.
15
And you killed the source of life, whom God raised from the dead; we are witnesses of this.
16
By faith in His name, His name has made this man strong, whom you see and know. So the faith that comes through Him has given him this perfect health in front of all of you.
17
"And now, brothers, I know that you did it in ignorance, just as your leaders also did.
18
But what God predicted through the mouth of all the prophets-- that His Messiah would suffer-- He has fulfilled in this way.
19
Therefore repent and turn back, that your sins may be wiped out so that seasons of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,
20
and He may send Jesus, who has been appointed Messiah for you.
21
Heaven must welcome Him until the times of the restoration of all things, which God spoke about by the mouth of His holy prophets from the beginning.
22
Moses said: The Lord your God will raise up for you a Prophet like me from among your brothers. You must listen to Him in everything He will say to you.
23
And it will be that everyone who will not listen to that Prophet will be completely cut off from the people.
24
"In addition, all the prophets who have spoken, from Samuel and those after him, have also announced these days.
25
You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant that God made with your forefathers, saying to Abraham, And in your seed all the families of the earth will be blessed.
26
God raised up His Servant and sent Him first to you to bless you by turning each of you from your evil ways."
Acts 4:4
But many of those who heard the message believed, and the number of the men came to about 5,000.
Acts 5:12-16
12
Many signs and wonders were being done among the people through the hands of the apostles. By common consent they would all meet in Solomon's Colonnade.
13
None of the rest dared to join them, but the people praised them highly.
14
Believers were added to the Lord in increasing numbers-- crowds of both men and women.
15
As a result, they would carry the sick out into the streets and lay them on beds and pallets so that when Peter came by, at least his shadow might fall on some of them.
16
In addition, a multitude came together from the towns surrounding Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.
Acts 8:17
Then Peter and John laid their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.

2
As they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, "Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work that I have called them to."
3
Then, after they had fasted, prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them off.
4
Being sent out by the Holy Spirit, they came down to Seleucia, and from there they sailed to Cyprus.
5
Arriving in Salamis, they proclaimed God's message in the Jewish synagogues. They also had John as their assistant.
6
When they had gone through the whole island as far as Paphos, they came across a sorcerer, a Jewish false prophet named Bar-Jesus.
7
He was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. This man summoned Barnabas and Saul and desired to hear God's message.
8
But Elymas, the sorcerer, which is how his name is translated, opposed them and tried to turn the proconsul away from the faith.
9
Then Saul-- also called Paul-- filled with the Holy Spirit, stared straight at the sorcerer
10
and said, "You son of the Devil, full of all deceit and all fraud, enemy of all righteousness! Won't you ever stop perverting the straight paths of the Lord?
11
Now, look! The Lord's hand is against you: you are going to be blind, and will not see the sun for a time." Suddenly a mist and darkness fell on him, and he went around seeking someone to lead him by the hand.
Acts 14:3-11
3
So they stayed there for some time and spoke boldly, in reliance on the Lord, who testified to the message of His grace by granting that signs and wonders be performed through them.
4
But the people of the city were divided, some siding with the Jews and some with the apostles.
5
When an attempt was made by both the Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, to assault and stone them,
6
they found out about it and fled to the Lycaonian towns called Lystra and Derbe, and to the surrounding countryside.
7
And there they kept evangelizing.
8
In Lystra a man without strength in his feet, lame from birth, and who had never walked, sat
9
and heard Paul speaking. After observing him closely and seeing that he had faith to be healed,
10
[Paul] said in a loud voice, "Stand up straight on your feet!" And he jumped up and started to walk around.
11
When the crowds saw what Paul had done, they raised their voices, saying in the Lycaonian language, "The gods have come down to us in the form of men!"
