Bible: Acts 1:6-12

1:6 So when they had gathered together, they began to ask him, 1 Lord, is this the time when you are restoring the kingdom to Israel? 1:7 He told them, “You are not permitted to know 2  the times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority. 1:8 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 farthest parts 3  of the earth.” 1:9 After 4  he had said this, while they were watching, he was lifted up and a cloud hid him from their sight. 1:10 As 5  they were still staring into the sky while he was going, suddenly 6  two men in white clothing stood near them 1:11 and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand here 7  looking up into the sky? This same Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven 8  will come back in the same way you saw him go into heaven.”
