Jesus Promise Fo Send God's Spirit
11Aloha, Teofilus! I wen write one nodda book fo you befo, an I tell you all da stuff dat Jesus wen do an teach from da start, 2till da time God take him up inside da sky. Befo he go up, he tell da guys dat he wen pick fo send all ova, wat dey gotta do. God's Spesho Spirit wen tell him all dat. 3Now, afta Jesus wen suffa, he let da guys dat he wen pick see him, an he prove dat he stay alive fo real. He stay show up by dem fo forty days, an wen tell dem how everyting stay wen God stay King.
4One time wen Jesus wen stay wit his guys, he tell dem, “No go way from Jerusalem, but wait ova hea till you guys get da Spirit my Fadda wen promise fo send. You guys wen hear me tell bout dat Spirit. 5Befo time, John Da Baptiza Guy wen baptize peopo wit water, but pretty soon God goin baptize you guys diffren kine: he goin let his Spesho Spirit take charge a you.”
Jesus Go Up Inside Da Sky
6One time, da guys dat Jesus wen pick wen come togedda wit him, an dey aks him, “Boss, you goin come King now fo da Israel peopo, jalike had king befo time?”
7He tell dem, “Not yoa kuleana fo know da time o da day da Fadda wen pick. He da One goin do dat. 8But you guys goin get spesho kine power wen God's Spesho Spirit take charge a you. An den you guys goin tell da peopo in Jerusalem wat you know bout me, an da peopo all ova Judea, Samaria, an all ova da world.” 9Afta he wen say dat, God wen take him up in front dem, an den one cloud wen move unda him, so dey no can see him no moa.
10Dey still stay looking in da sky real good wen he stay going, an right den an dea two guys wit white clotheses wen stand by dem. 11Dey say, “You guys from Galilee, how come you stay standing hea an stay looking in da sky? Dis guy Jesus, God wen take him from you, up inside da sky. He goin come back da same way you wen see him go.”
Dey Pick One Guy Fo Take Judas Place
(Songs 41:9, 69:25, 109:8)
12Den da guys Jesus wen pick wen go way from Olive Ridge, an go back Jerusalem, bout half mile. 13Wen dey wen come, dey all go da place upstairs wea dey was staying. Had Peter, John, James, an Andrew; Philip an Thomas; Bartolomew an Matthew; Alfeus boy James, Simon da Jewish Sovereignty guy, an James boy Judas. 14Plenny times dey all pray togedda, wit da wahines, an Jesus mudda Mary, an his bruddas.
15Dat time had like hundred twenty peopo dat trus Jesus. Dey wen come togedda, an Peter wen stand up fo talk. 16He say, “Bruddas an sistas, da Bible come true awready, an dass how gotta be. King David wen tell long time ago bout da guy Judas, cuz God's Spesho Spirit wen tell David all dat. Judas, he da guy wen bring da guys dat bus Jesus, an wen show dem who him. 17But Judas, he wen come from us guys an he wen work wit us.”
18(Now, da guys dat like kill Jesus wen give Judas money fo da bad ting he goin do, an he wen go buy one field. But he wen fall down dea, an he bus open, an his guts all come out. 19An everybody inside Jerusalem hear bout dat, so dey wen name da field ‘Akeldama,’ dat mean ‘Blood Field.’)
20An den Peter say, “David wen write down inside da Songs Fo God,
‘His place goin stay empty,
No let nobody stay dea.’
An David wen write too,
‘Let one nodda guy take his kuleana.’
21“So, we gotta pick one guy dat wen stay wit us da whole time Jesus da Boss wen come an den go from us, 22from da time John wen baptize him, till he go up to da sky. One a da guys gotta go wit us fo tell how Jesus wen come back alive again.”
23So, dey pick two guys: Joseph, da guy dey name Barsabbas o Justus, an Mattias. 24Den dey aks God fo help dem, an say, “Boss, you know how everybody stay inside. Show us da guy you wen pick from da two guys, 25so he can work fo you an tell bout you, cuz Judas no stay. Judas wen go da place dass fo him.” 26Den dey wen make jalike Jun Ken A Po kine, an Mattias wen win, so he wen come togedda wit da eleven guys dat Jesus wen send all ova.
