THE HOLY SPIRIT AND OUR LORD'S COMMISSION TO THE APOSTLES.

"And the Eleven Disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had ordered them; and seeing him, they (indeed) prostrated to him; but Some doubted; and Jesus approaching, spoke to them, saying, All Authority has been imparted to me, in Heaven and on Earth. Go, disciple All the nations, immersing them into the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; teaching them to observe all things which I have enjoined upon you; and, behold, I am with you all the Days, till the ConsummaT1on of the Age (Matt., 28: 16-20)."

"And he said to them, Go into all the World, and proclaim the Glad tidings to the Whole Creation. He who believes and is immersed will be saved; but He who BeL1eves Not will be condemned; and these Signs will accompany the Bel1evebs; in my Name they will expel Demons; they will speak in new Languages; they will take up Serpents ; and if they should drink any deadly poison, it will not injure Them; they will lay Hands on Sick persons, and they will be well. Then, indeed, after the Lord had Spoken to them, he was taken up into Heaven, and sat down at the Right hand of God; and Those having gone forth, proclaimed everywhere, the Lord co-operating, and ratifying the Word through the Accompany1ng Signs (Mark, 16: 15-20)."

"And he said to them, These are the Words which I spoke to you, while I was yet with you, That All Th1ncs written in the Law of Moses, and in the Prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning me, must be fully accomplished.

"Then Jesus said to them again, Peace be with you; as the Father has sent me, I also send you; and having said this, he breathed on and says to them, Receive the Holy Spirit; if the sins of any one you may forgive, they are forgiven them; if those of any you may retain, they have been retained (Jno., 20:21-23)."

"The Former History compiled, O Theophilus, concerning all things which Jesus began both to do and to teach, even to the Day in which, having given commandment, through the holy Spirit, to the Apostles whom he had chosen, he was taken up: to whom also he presented himself living, after his suffering, by Many Infallible proofs; being seen of them forty Days, and speaking the things concerning the kingdom of God; and assembling them, he charged them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the promise of the Father, which you heard from me; that John, indeed, immersed in Water, but you will be immersed in holy Spirit, after a few Days. They, therefore, having come together, asked him, saying, 'Lord, wilt thou at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?' Then he said to them, It is not for you to know the Times or Seasons, which
