Acts 1:6-8

Acts 1:6-8
So when they had come together, they asked him, “Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth“.

Where is the furthest point from Jerusalem you may ask? The exact point is located in the South Pacific Ocean. But Papeete in Tahiti is about 1623 km or just over 1,000 miles to the north-northwest. Papeete has a population of just over 25,000 inhabitants. As for cities over 100,000, there are a number cities in New Zealand that qualify. For international cities over 1,000,000 inhabitants, then that is Auckland in New Zealand.

    Hi t8,

    So Jesus promised that his disciples would receive power when the Holy Spirit came on them.

    Just as happened with him at the Jordan!

    Hi t8,

    Yes the Spirit came down on Jesus as a dove

    and

    the Spirit came down on the apostles as tongues of fire to fulfil the promise of Jesus Christ.

     

    Both events led to dramatic changes in speech, powers and abilities.

    Can you see the likeness?

    No one is denying that Nick, have you realised that yet? Jesus Christ came in the flesh when he was born in Bethlehem. He was was baptised at the Jordan, this is all clearly written.

    Did you know that there is a new topic for discussing this, so would appreciate you going there if you wish to take that further. Flooding the topics with this one discussion makes it hard to keep track of and also makes the other topics go off subject.

    Thanks for that. Here is the link for you:

    Hi T8,

    Surely this is on the subject of the scripture you posted.

    Or should we only talk about NZ?

    It is about the end of the world or ends of the world. You can see that as it gives distances of cities from Jerusalem and the text “and to the end of the earth” is even in bold.

    We already have a topic about the Jordan and when Jesus was born the Christ which seems to be where you want to steer this.

    I will be deleting posts regarding that which are posted in the wrong topic.

    There is a rule about flooding forums with the same subject in unrelated topics.

    I am trying to keep things tidy so that there is one conversation about Jesus Christ’s birth and his baptism in the Jordan.

    I hope you can see the reasoning for this.

    Hi t8,

    I think I understand.

    We can talk about the picture and the figures but the scripture is taboo to talk about.

    It is you site.

    You can talk about what the uttermost part of the world means. You could for argument sake say that it just means the furthest reaches from Jerusalem that may not be just one place. You could debate the merits of which place is the furthest. Perhaps you could make reference to the gospel in New Zealand or Tahiti. Or maybe debate whether this scripture is now fulfilled. All these and many more ideas would work in this topic.

    Yes, I think you can talk about that too as it would be within the topic.

    Google gives a slightly different account of the kms from the source I drew them from. I have updated them to reflect Google’s figures.
