Psalm 147:11 – Those Who Fear Him

Do you want to know one of the reasons the church in America is so weak?  I believe it relates directly to how believers view God in their relationship with Him.  Over the years the Bible has been attacked on all sides.  It has been questioned as to how reliable it is.  Did so and…

Acts 14:9 – Faith To Be Made Well

What is the nature of true faith? How do we know if we really have it or not? What is the way that it manifests? The answer to these questions comes through our text today, plus we see it very clearly in a well-known Old Testament passage. Paul and Barnabas had fled to Lystra from…

Acts 13:11 – Mist and Darkness Fell Upon Him

If you’ve read the book of Revelation, one of the questions that may have come to mind is: How do the persecutors know certain people have turned to Christ? There are three sets of martyrs in Revelation. What is it that points to these new believers, i.e. those who have come to the Lord following…

Acts 9:18 – Scales Fell From His Eyes

It is almost a cliche to say that the Lord moves in mysterious ways, yet it continues to be an absolute truth. To advance His kingdom, God uses those whom He chooses, and He does so in an often unexpected manner. The classic of this truism is with the Pharisee Saul who became the Apostle…

Job 2:3 – You Incited Me

When we read in Job 1-2 about the sons of God (bene Elohim) coming to present themselves before Him, we see an interesting dynamic.  First, we must understand that these are spiritual beings.  They gather before their creator in His divine throne room into an assembly known as the Divine Council.  Every entity in God’s…

Acts 3:15 – You Killed the Author of Life

Following the astounding events at Pentecost, Jesus’ apostles walked in the power of the Spirit.  They were given power from on high through the Spirit Baptism, and this gave them the means to be bold in Jesus’ Name.  The Lord had taught them for three and a half years, He had opened their minds to…

Acts 2:21 – Everyone Who Calls

Following the crucifixion of Jesus and His rising from the grave, He met with His disciples, telling them to wait in Jerusalem because they would be imbued with power from on high.  Indeed, as they met and prayed, the Holy Spirit came upon them, filling them with the power and authority of God Himself.  In…
