Acts # 17: Chapter 15

December 5th, 2019

This chapter records a pivotal event in the early church, confirming that what Jesus accomplished on the cross was the creation of one new body, in which both Jews and Gentiles were to have the same access to God through faith in Jesus Christ and not through obedience to the Law or any aspects of the Law of Moses. At the end of this chapter, Paul and Barnabas have a dispute about whether to take with them John Mark or not since he left them on their first trip. They were unable to resolve this dispute, so Paul took Silas with him and Barnabas took John Mark with him. God used the dispute for good, and now two missionary teams left Antioch instead of one.

What is Prayer? - Episode 7

December 2nd, 2019

We need to learn to live and to pray in the eternal presence of God. The Apostle Paul said "God is above all, and through all, and in you all." We need a good comprehension of the omni-presence of the Lord as we pray and as we go through our life. Someone once referred to this aspect of God, His eternal presence, as the Eternal Now; God is always present, He is always with us, He is always everywhere. Learn to pray and live with the awareness of the eternal presence of God.

What is Prayer? - Episode 6

November 17th, 2019

Prayer does not try to force God. We are to pray with urgency and anguish, but we are not to pray an impetuous type of pray. We are not to try to force God to answer our prayers. Do we pray to receive the answer to our prayer, or do we pray trying to force an answer from God? How we approach God in prayer matters. We need to approach God as a child does a father as he receives a gift, a child is not very successful when he tries to take the gift from his father. The father is much eager to give the gift when the child is anxiously waiting to receive it and not trying to take it. Are we praying to receive the answer or are we praying to force the answer?

Two Ways (Matthew 7:13-14)

November 12th, 2019

There are two ways man can choose from. The narrow way or the wide way. One leads to blessings and life, and the other leads to destruction and death. One seems easy, tempting, and a short cut to success; the other seems narrow and not as easy. But in reality the narrow way is the easy way; it is the most wonderful and joyous way anyone could ever want to live. We just need to be patient and choose the narrow way, and live a life for Christ, and in Christ; and choose to avoid the wide and tempting way.

Acts # 15: Chapter 13

November 10th, 2019

Luke narrates Paul's first missionary journey with Barnabas and for a time John Mark. This journey started with the calling of the Holy Ghost. This calling was preceded by much prayer and fasting by the Antioch church. The Antioch church was a church of much diversity of race, of culture, of economic status and societal upbringing. Saul is first referred to as Paul in this chapter. At the close of this chapter Paul and Barnabas shake the dust off their feet as a testimony against those who rejected them. The final verse speaks of them being filled with joy as they do the work of the Lord.

What is Prayer? - Episode 5

November 8th, 2019

The disciples asked the Lord to teach them to pray. He said "When ye pray," every Christian must have a when to their prayer life. Prayer must be planned and consistent. You need to have a when to your prayer life. Do you have a when time to your payer life? We all need a when time to our prayer life. Prayer should not be done just in stolen moments of time here and there, haphazardly. We should all have a consistent "when" to our prayer life.
