The Miracles of The Transformed Life: Acts Series #20

August 24, 2021

The blueprint and the pattern for the Normal 21st Century Church are found in that first-century Church. For the Bible says: “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Nature forms us. Sin deforms us. Schools inform us. Prisons reform us. But, only Christ transforms us. In Christ, we become a new person. A Christian is not just somebody who has become nice—he or she has become new. He doesn’t just turn over a new leaf—he or she receives a new life. Now, a Christian is not like a tadpole that has become a frog. The animal has gone through a series of changes, but it is the same creature. A Christian is more like a frog that has received the kiss of grace and has become a prince. We are changed radically and dramatically! When the Apostle Paul got saved, he even changed his name. His early name was Saul. Yet, he becomes Paul—the greatest missionary, the greatest preacher, and the greatest evangelist, I believe, that the world has ever known. He was changed by the grace of God. What God…

How to Know The Will Of God: Acts Series #19

August 17, 2021

If Jesus Christ were to meet you face-to- face—literally, bodily, physically were to appear to you, and you had the opportunity to ask Him one question, What would it be? Suppose He said to you, “What do you want to know?” What would you ask Him?Do you know what I think it would be? I think you would ask Him this question: “Lord, what would You have me to do? n Acts chapter 9, Jesus appeared to a man named Saul and and that’s what he asked Him. We read in Acts 9:1-6: “And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest, and desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem”—in plain English, that means he had authorization to take Christians, put them in chains, and bring them back to Jerusalem to be persecuted—“And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus, and suddenly there shone round about him a light from heaven; and he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why…

Satan’s Worldwide Religion: Acts Series #18

August 10, 2021

Is the devil for religion or against religion? Yes, Satan is for religion. He uses religion to oppose the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The devil’s opposition to the “true religion” began in the Garden of Eden. The first temptation that came to humankind, when Satan crawled his slimy, corroding path into the pages of history in the Garden of Eden was a religious temptation. Do you remember what Satan said to Eve? He said, “If you eat this fruit, then you will be like God.” He was saying to her, “I’m going to tell you how to be godly my way.” It wasn’t a temptation to fall down; it was a temptation to fall up—to be like God. Satan was offering a perverted religion. He has always been in the religion business. In Acts 8:5, we read: “Then Philip went down to the city of Samaria, and preached Christ unto them. And the people with one accord gave heed unto those things which Philip spake, hearing and seeing the miracles which he did. For unclean spirits, crying out with loud voice, came out of many that were possessed with them: and many taken with palsies, and…

Steps To Successful Soulwinning: Acts Series #17

August 4, 2021

A sales manager was trying to lift up the vision of some of his sales force. He went into the meeting and he took a piece of white poster board that had one black spot in the middle. He looked at everyone and said, “Let’s have a little creativity.” He asked the first person, What do you see there? He said, “Well, a black dot.” He asked another person, “What do you see?” She said, “A dot.” Everyone answered the same way. And he said, “Isn’t it strange that all of you saw the black dot, but none of you saw the white all around it.” I think so many of us see the black dot of self-concern when the Savior said, “Lift up your eyes and look upon the fields, they are white already unto harvest.” God has a plan for you and He wants you to get your eyes off of self and onto others. I pray God uses this message to help you to do this. I don’t want to hurt your feelings, but I want to remind you of an important truth. I want you to know no matter how faithfully you attend, no matter how…

Grace For Every Race: Acts Series #16

July 27, 2021

If you are not a lover of winning the lost, then you probably have not been won by the Lord. God had only one Son and He was a foreign missionary. Jesus left a holy place to come to a hellish place; He left a blessed place to come to a broken place; He left a sanctified place to come to a sinful place; He left his crown in heaven to be lifted up on a cross on a Calvary’s hill. Jesus died the way He lived. In the Gospel narratives, Jesus lived with sinners and saints. On Calvary, He hung between two thieves. The one on the right received Him and the one on the left rejected Him. Jesus became the “link” between those who choose righteousness and those who choose unrighteousness. The cross became the greatest moral intersection of all time. It is at the cross where people turn right to heaven or left to hell. The light turned green at the cross for everyone to have the opportunity to go to heaven and to live forever. As Jesus Christ was about to ascend to heaven, He pronounced the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16: 15-18). He commissioned…

Fanning The Fire: Acts Series #15

July 22, 2021

Stephen was a remarkable person who became like a fallen star. He brightly burned for God for a short period of time. His death was a disaster to the Church. Stephen was full of the Holy Spirit and had an outstanding ability to handle the Old Testament. Yet, on the outside, it seemed that his speech rendered only negative results. It was the trigger that set off the persecution of all Christians. His public testimony unleashed the anger of a Jew named Saul. Saul tried to extinguish Christianity as quickly as possible. Why was it necessary for Stephen to have such a brief ministry? Why did he have to get himself into a situation that cost him his life? Does it seem pointless to you? At a glance, it appears that tragedy happened to Stephen and the saints. However, the Holy Spirit turns negatives into positives and disasters into miracles. One cannot blockade the Holy Spirit. It is like jumping on a fire and spreading the embers everywhere. Saul jumped on the Church in Jerusalem and scattered the embers all over the world. The first great missionary movement began with the persecution of Stephen. His death became the catalyst that…

Why 2030?

July 20, 2021

Dr. Elmer Towns The Global Church Network was the first to announce plans for the 2,000th birthday of the Church. On November 1, 2017, at the graveside of Martin Luther, the Protestant Reformer, in Castle Church, Wittenberg, Germany, we committed to do our best to complete the Great Commission by 2030. Much evidence points to Pentecost, 30 A.D., as the starting date for the Church. Some, however, will celebrate the Church’s birthday three years later, in 2033, because they believe Jesus died in 33 A.D. As a network, we are focusing on the 2000th birthday of the Church. Why are we looking to 2030, rather than 2033? “Jesus is the Christ, the savior of the world. He is so vastly important that the world’s dating hinges upon his birth—in B.C. (before Christ) or in A.D. (anno domini – “in the year of our Lord”). Establishing the actual year when Jesus was born . . . [is] important because that was the year when the Holy Trinity commenced the final stage of [his] plan to redeem fallen humans and to restore paradise in the New Jerusalem. . . So the year of Jesus’ birth is a pivotal year; salvation history turns upon it. Eternal…

Leadership To Stand Alone: Acts Series #14

July 13, 2021

I thank the Lord for the power that we have when we stand together. One will chase a thousand; ten will chase ten thousand. We thank God for the power that we have to stand together. However, wait a moment, there are times when you may have to stand by yourself – when you don’t have your brothers and sisters in Christ ’round about you. We are going to have to also learn to stand alone. The title of this chapter is “Standing Alone.” I mean, there’s coming a time, when you are going to have to be one against the crowd, and you’re going to be all by yourself against great odds. It may be at school, that you’re going to have to stand alone, and you may have, in your college class, an atheistic, agnostic cynic for a professor. You may be the only Christian in that class, and you’re going to have to stand up for the Lord Jesus. Some of you businessmen and businesswomen, tomorrow, when you go back to the company and back to the office, you’re going to have to stand alone, because there will be pornography; there will be obscenity; there will be…

The Four Houses Of God: Acts Series #13

July 6, 2021

Do you find it difficult sometimes to conceive of God as being “with you?” Do you think of God, maybe, as in heaven; maybe peering through the clouds, moving things around on earth, like a man moves checkers when he plays checkers? So many people conceive of God that way, and you can tell it. For example, they say, “When I prayed, my prayer didn’t get above the light bulbs.” Well, maybe they have failed to understand that God also lives beneath the light bulbs. This chapter is about The Four Houses Of God. We need to learn how to practice the presence of God. Where does God live? I mean, if, if you wanted to write Him a letter, do you know the address? Do you have the zip code? Does God live in a building like the local church? We call this the house of God. But, is it? In Acts 7:47-48, we read: “But Solomon built him an house. Nevertheless, the most High [that’s another word for Jehovah God], the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands, as saith the prophet. Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build…

Overcoming Growing Pains: Acts Series #12

June 29, 2021

  There are always pessimists, who see a difficulty in every opportunity. Yet, a Bible Christian sees an opportunity in every difficulty. Every difficulty that came to the early Church was used of God as a springboard, just to cause them to grow all the more for the Lord Jesus Christ. In Acts 6:1-7, we read, “And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration. Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God and serve tables. Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word. And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch: Whom they set before the apostles: and…
