We have come to the holy mountain
and to the city of the living God,
the heavenly Jerusalem;
before myriads of angels,
before the full assembly of the first-born citizens of heaven.
New Testament Reading - To the end of the earth
6And another time when he appeared to them, they asked him, “Lord, are you going to free Israel from Romea now and restore us as an independent nation?”
7“The Father sets those dates,” he replied, “and they are not for you to know. 8But when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, you will receive power to testify about me with great effect, to the people in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth, about my death and resurrection.”. . . . . Acts 1:6-8
