What will you do with your miracle?

Acts 38 So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them—walking, leaping, and praising God. 9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God. 10 Then they knew that it was he who sat begging alms at the Beautiful Gate of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to […]

Healing of the Lame Man

Acts 33 who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked for alms. 4 And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, “Look at us.” 5 So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them.  Fixing his eyes on him: The man must have been happy and encouraged when Peter and John […]

A Certain Lame Man

Acts 3Now Peter and John went up together to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour. 2 And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms from those who entered the temple;  I saw this in my commentary and I loved […]

This.

Acts 246 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added [q]to the church daily those who were being saved. This is where we should be right now. We should be […]

Is this a form of Socialism?

Acts 244 Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, 45 and [o]sold their possessions and goods, and divided[p] them among all, as anyone had need. I love this topic, because it tends to ruffle feathers. The government creating a socialistic economy is TERRIBLE. HOWEVER, as Christians we should choose to live our lives like socialist. I do […]

Fear God?

Acts 243 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles.  Commentary:Then fear came upon every soul: This was evidence of the power of God. One of the greatest, most powerful works God can do is to change the human heart towards a reverent honor of the Lord. This is […]

You’re Saved! Now what?

Acts 241 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them.42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.  You’re saved. Now what? Step 1: Be hungry for more! Step 2: Fellowship with other believers. This will strengthen you […]

Be saved.

Acts 240 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this [l]perverse generation.” So from this verse, it is very clear that the full sermon is not written here. From my commentary:Be saved from this perverse generation: Any generation that is responsible for putting Jesus to death is a perverse generation. But […]

The Promise is to you and your children

Act 237 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” 38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the [k]remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of […]

This could get confusing.

ActsFor David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself: ‘The LORD said to my Lord,“Sit at My right hand,Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”’ “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” From my commentary:In this Psalm, […]
