Bifor disaepol Stephen hem dae bikos hem faithful for preachim gud nius, hem sei: “Mi lukim skae hem open and Son bilong man hem standap long raet saed bilong God.”—Acts 7:56.

Long heven, Jesus weit for herem datfala komand wea David raetem long Psalms, wea sei: “Jehovah sei olsem long Lord bilong mi [Jesus]: ‘Sidaon long raet saed bilong mi go kasem taem mi givim paoa long iu for winim olketa enemy bilong iu.’” Then taem hem kasem datfala paoa, bae hem “rul midolwan long olketa enemy bilong [hem].” (Psalm 110:1, 2) Bat wanem nao bae Jesus duim long heven taem hem weit for faetem olketa enemy bilong hem?

Long Pentecost 33 C.E., Christian kongregeson hem start. Jesus start for rul long heven ovarem olketa anointed disaepol bilong hem.

Sapos olketa faithful go kasem taem olketa dae, gogo olketa bae go long heven and kamap olketa king wea bae rul witim Jesus long Kingdom.
