Jan. 27, 2016 – Acts 19
Please join with us sharing God’s Word daily. We will spend about fifteen minutes a day praying and reading every word in God’s Word in approximately three years.
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.” Ephesians 6:12-13, English Standard Version (ESV)
Thank you for joining us, as we prayerfully continue our Feast in Acts Chapter 19; “Paul instructs the disciples of John at Ephesus. (1-7) He teaches there. (8-12) The Jewish exorcists disgraced. Some Ephesians burn their evil books. (13-20) The tumult at Ephesus. (21-31) The tumult appeased. (32-41)” – Matthew Henry Concise.
Fellow followers of the Way, today we prayerfully read in, Acts 19. Paul instructs the disciples of John concerning Jesus and they are filled with the Holy Spirit at Ephesus. He teaches them by reasoning with them concerning the Messiah. The Jewish exorcists are disgraced, when they use magic arts. Some of the Ephesians convinced that Jesus is the Way, burned their evil books. The Ephesians are up in arms; they feel that the way in intruding on the living they make in magic arts and making of idols at Ephesus. The tumult appeased; “35 And when the town clerk had quieted the crowd, he said, “Men of Ephesus, who is there who does not know that the city of the Ephesians is temple keeper of the great Artemis, and of the sacred stone that fell from the sky? 36 Seeing then that these things cannot be denied, you ought to be quiet and do nothing rash. 37 For you have brought these men here who are neither sacrilegious nor blasphemers of our goddess. 38 If therefore Demetrius and the craftsmen with him have a complaint against anyone, the courts are open, and there are proconsuls. Let them bring charges against one another. 39 But if you seek anything further, it shall be settled in the regular assembly. 40 For we really are in danger of being charged with rioting today, since there is no cause that we can give to justify this commotion.” 41 And when he had said these things, he dismissed the assembly.” Acts 19:35-41, ESV. Sometimes common sense takes over and men finding the Way see the evil in their own lives. Here they realized that the disciples are not attacking them for their sins. They are merely sharing the love of Jesus. “[Birth of Jesus Foretold] In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin’s name was Mary. And he came to her and said, “Greetings, O favored one, the Lord is with you!”” Luke 1:26-28, ESV. Share the gift of eternal life through our Lord Jesus. He is the Savior of all persons, whoever accepts his love. Keep the first thing first, salvation through the blood of our Lord Jesus. When the sinner turns to the light, and accept Him, Jesus will save them from their sins. If the Lord is willing I’ll send and post the Feast again tomorrow
Don’t get caught up in “religion”, it is about a relationship. Our salvation depends completely on God! We are the Saints that Jesus sacrificed his life to pay in full for our sin, when we repent and accept Jesus. He will come to get every Saint; “36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.” Matthew 24:36, ESV. We are building our relationship with Jesus right now, do not wait while you try to change anything. Click this link for more information; admenu.com/calling.htm .
