 Acts 4

 

32 Now the entire group of those who believed were of one heart and mind, and no one claimed that any of his possessions was his own, but instead they held everything in common. 33 With great power the apostles were giving testimony to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was on all of them. 34 For there was not a needy person among them because all those who owned lands or houses sold them, brought the proceeds of what was sold, 35 and laid them at the apostles’ feet. This was then distributed to each person as any had need.

36 Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus by birth, the one the apostles called Barnabas (which is translated Son of Encouragement), 37 sold a field he owned, brought the money, and laid it at the apostles’ feet.

  1. They trust God to provide for them ----

 

  1. Unified

 

 

Look at Acts 2

 

44 Now all the believers were together and held all things in common. 45 They sold their possessions and property and distributed the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 Every day they devoted themselves to meeting together in the temple, and broke bread from house to house. They ate their food with joyful and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. Every day the Lord added to their number[l] those who were being saved.

 

 

 

 

 

2 Peter 3 The Lord does not delay his promise, as some understand delay, but is patient with you, not wanting any to perish but all to come to repentance. ………14 Therefore, dear friends, while you wait for these things, make every effort to be found without spot or blemish in his sight, at peace. 15 Also, regard the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our dear brother Paul has written to you according to the wisdom given to him. 16 He speaks about these things in all his letters. There are some matters that are hard to understand. The untaught and unstable will twist them to their own destruction, as they also do with the rest of the Scriptures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Favor with people

Acts 2: 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. Every day the Lord added to their number[l] those who were being saved.

 

 

 

Acts 4: 21 After threatening them further, they released them. They found no way to punish them because the people were all giving glory to God over what had been done.

 

 

Acts 5,

26 Then the commander went with the servants and brought them in without force, because they were afraid the people might stone them.

Acts 4

23 After they were released, they went to their own people and reported everything the chief priests and the elders had said to them. 24 When they heard this, they raised their voices together to God and said, “Master, you are the one who made the heaven, the earth, and the sea, and everything in them. 25 You said through the Holy Spirit, by the mouth of our father David your servant:[d]

Why do the Gentiles rage
and the peoples plot futile things?
26 The kings of the earth take their stand
and the rulers assemble together
against the Lord and against his Messiah.[e]

27 “For, in fact, in this city both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, assembled together against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, 28 to do whatever your hand and your will had predestined to take place. 29 And now, Lord, consider their threats, and grant that your servants may speak your word with all boldness, 30 while you stretch out your hand for healing, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” 31 When they had prayed, the place where they were assembled was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God boldly.

 

 

  1. They did not pray for their circumstances to change, or for their enemies to be out of office.

 

 

  1. They prayed with urgency!

 

  1. They prayed united!

 

24 When they heard this, they raised their voices together to God and said,

 

 

Psalm 2

Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth take their stand,
and the rulers conspire together
against the Lord and his Anointed One:[a]
“Let’s tear off their chains
and throw their ropes off of us.”

The one enthroned[b] in heaven laughs;
the Lord ridicules them.
Then he speaks to them in his anger
and terrifies them in his wrath:
“I have installed my king
on Zion, my holy mountain.”

I will declare the Lord’s decree.
He said to me, “You are my Son;[c]
today I have become your Father.
Ask of me,
and I will make the nations your inheritance
and the ends of the earth your possession.
You will break them with an iron scepter;
you will shatter them like pottery.”

10 So now, kings, be wise;
receive instruction, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with reverential awe
and rejoice with trembling.
12 Pay homage to[d] the Son or he will be angry
and you will perish in your rebellion,[e]
for his anger may ignite at any moment.
All who take refuge in him are happy.

 

 

 

 

John 15:7 - If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you want and it will be done for you.

 

1 John 15:14-15

14 This is the confidence we have before him: If we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we know that he hears whatever we ask, we know that we have what we have asked of him.

 

 

Psalm 2: The kings of the earth take their stand,
and the rulers conspire together
against the Lord and his Anointed One:[

 

Luke 19: 14 “But his subjects hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We don’t want this man to rule over us.’

 

 

Psalm 2

Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth take their stand,
and the rulers conspire together
against the Lord and his Anointed One:[a]
“Let’s tear off their chains
and throw their ropes off of us.”

 

 

As a church they decided to tear off the chains and throw down the ropes…and be free in Christ….and not bound by the threats of the world and of Satan…

 

Acts 4: 31 When they had prayed, the place where they were assembled was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God boldly.

Acts 4:7,21-22

7/29/18

 

Acts 4:7 After they had Peter and John stand before them, they began to question them: “By what power or in what name have you done this?”

 

 

Acts 4:Then Peter was filled with the Holy Spirit and said to them, “Rulers of the people and elders:

 

 

Acts 4:10 - 10 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified and whom God raised from the dead—by him this man is standing here before you healthy.

 

 

13 When they observed the boldness of Peter and John and realized that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed and recognized that they had been with Jesus.

 

 

 

 

18 So they called for them and ordered them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.

 

19 Peter and John answered them, “Whether it’s right in the sight of God for us to listen to you rather than to God, you decide; 20 for we are unable to stop speaking about what we have seen and heard.

 

 

Vs. 21 21 After threatening them further, they released them. They found no way to punish them because the people were all giving glory to God over what had been done.

 

 

22 For this sign of healing had been performed on a man over forty years old.

Why did not punish James and John?

 

 

1 Cor. 6

Don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spiritwho is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought at a price. So glorify God with your body.[e]

 

 

 

Ephesians 1

11 In him we have also received an inheritance,[f] because we were predestined according to the plan of the one who works out everything in agreement with the purpose of his will, 12 so that we who had already put our hope in Christ might bring praise to his glory.

13 In him you also were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and when you believed. 14 The Holy Spirit is the down payment of our inheritance, until the redemption of the possession, to the praise of his glory.

 

1 Corinthians 12:

12 For just as the body is one and has many parts, and all the parts of that body, though many, are one body—so also is Christ. 13 For we were all baptized by[c] one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and we were all given one Spirit to drink.

 

Ephesians 5:

18 And don’t get drunk with wine, which leads to reckless living, but be filled by the Spirit19 speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music with your heart to the Lord, 20 giving thanks always for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,

By Faith all the rest of us

Hebrews 11:32-39

 

32 And what more can I say? Time is too short for me to tell about Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel, and the prophets, 33 who by faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the raging of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, gained strength in weakness, became mighty in battle, and put foreign armies to flight. 

 

 

 

33 who by faith conquered kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions, 34 quenched the raging of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, gained strength in weakness, became mighty in battle, and put foreign armies to flight. 35 Women received their dead, raised to life again. Other people were tortured, not accepting release, so that they might gain a better resurrection. 36 Others experienced mockings and scourgings, as well as bonds and imprisonment. 37 They were stoned,[l] they were sawed in two, they died by the sword, they wandered about in sheepskins, in goatskins, destitute, afflicted, and mistreated. 38 The world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts and on mountains, hiding in caves and holes in the ground.

 

 

39 All these were approved through their faith, but they did not receive what was promised, 40 since God had provided something better for us, so that they would not be made perfect without us.

 

 

Hebrews 11: Now faith is the reality[a] of what is hoped for, the proof[b] of what is not seen. For by it our ancestors won God’s approval.

By faith we understand that the universe was[c] created by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are not visible.

By Faith Walls Fall

July 17, 2018

By Faith the Walls Fell!

 

 

 

Hebrews 11

30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after being marched around by the Israelites for seven days. 31 By faith Rahab the prostitute welcomed the spies in peace and didn’t perish with those who disobeyed.

 

 

Joshua  Now Jericho was strongly fortified because of the Israelites—no one leaving or entering. The Lord said to Joshua, “Look, I have handed Jericho, its king, and its best soldiers over to you. 

 

 

March around the city with all the men of war, circling the city one time. Do this for six days. Have seven priests carry seven ram’s-horn trumpets in front of the ark. But on the seventh day, march around the city seven times, while the priests blow the trumpets. When there is a prolonged blast of the horn and you hear its sound, have all the troops give a mighty shout. Then the city wall will collapse, and the troops will advance, each man straight ahead.”

 

 

 

Joshua 6: 15 Early on the seventh day, they started at dawn and marched around the city seven times in the same way. That was the only day they marched around the city seven times. 16 After the seventh time, the priests blew the trumpets, and Joshua said to the troops, “Shout! For the Lord has given you the city. 17 But the city and everything in it are set apart to the Lord for destruction. Only Rahab the prostitute and everyone with her in the house will live, because she hid the messengers we sent.

 

 

 

 

 

Joshua 2

Before the men fell asleep, she went up on the roof and said to them, “I know that the Lord has given you this land and that the terror of you has fallen on us, and everyone who lives in the land is panicking because of you.[b] 10 For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea before you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to Sihon and Og, the two Amorite kings you completely destroyed across the Jordan. 11 When we heard this, we lost heart, and everyone’s courage failed[c] because of you, for the Lord your God is God in heaven above and on earth below. 12 Now please swear to me by the Lord that you will also show kindness to my father’s family,[d] because I showed kindness to you. Give me a sure sig

 

 

Matthew 1:

Salmon fathered Boaz by Rahab,

Boaz fathered Obed by Ruth,

Obed fathered Jesse,

and Jesse fathered King David.

 

What is this, an excerpt from?

 

 

15 Eliud fathered Eleazar,

Eleazar fathered Matthan,

Matthan fathered Jacob,

16 and Jacob fathered Joseph the husband of Mary,

who gave birth to Jesus who is called the Christ.

 

 

 

 

Here is the application….

  1. Our obedience through faith in God affects future generations!
  2. Our disobedience through lack of faith affects future generations!

Hebrews 11:23-29

 

Moses a Life of Faith

Read. Hebrews 11:23-29

23 By faith Moses, after he was born, was hidden by his parents for three months, because they saw that the child was beautiful, and they didn’t fear the king’s edict. 24 By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter 25 and chose to suffer with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasure of sin. 26 For he considered reproach for the sake of Christ to be greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, since he was looking ahead to the reward.

27 By faith he left Egypt behind, not being afraid of the king’s anger, for Moses persevered as one who sees him who is invisible. 28 By faith he instituted the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood, so that the destroyer of the firstborn might not touch the Israelites. 29 By faith they crossed the Red Sea as though they were on dry land. When the Egyptians attempted to do this, they were drowned.

 

 

 

23 After a long time, the king of Egypt died. The Israelites groaned because of their difficult labor; and they cried out; and their cry for help because of the difficult labor ascended to God. 24 And God heard their groaning; and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob;

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Exodus 32 When the people saw that Moses delayed in coming down from the mountain, they gathered around Aaron and said to him, “Come, make gods[a] for us who will go before us because this Moses, the man who brought us up from the land of Egypt—we don’t know what has happened to him……..Aaron took the gold from them, fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made it into an image of a calf.

Then they said, “Israel, these are your gods,[b] who brought you up from the land of Egypt!”

 

 

 

Exodus 32

 10 Now leave me alone, so that my anger can burn against them and I can destroy them. Then I will make you into a great nation.”

11 But Moses sought the favor of the Lord his God: “Lord, why does your anger burn against your people you brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and a strong hand? 12 Why should the Egyptians say, ‘He brought them out with an evil intent to kill them in the mountains and eliminate them from the face of the earth’? Turn from your fierce anger and relent concerning this disaster planned for your people.13 Remember your servants Abraham, Isaac, and Israel—you swore to them by yourself and declared, ‘I will make your offspring as numerous as the stars of the sky and will give your offspring all this land that I have promised, and they will inherit it forever.’” 14 So the Lord relented concerning the disaster he had said he would bring on his people.

 

 

 

 

 

James 1: 22 But be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 Because if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like someone looking at his own face[f] in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of person he was. 25 But the one who looks intently into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer who works—this person will be blessed in what he does.

 

 

 

 

2 Peter 2: 19 They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption, since people are enslaved to whatever defeats them. 20 For if, having escaped the world’s impurity through the knowledge of the Lord[j]and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in these things and defeated, the last state is worse for them than the first. 21 For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness than, after knowing it, to turn back from the holy command delivered to them. 22 It has happened to them according to the true proverb: A dog returns to its own vomit,[k] and, “a washed sow returns to wallowing in the mud.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Psalm 107 12 He broke their spirits[d] with hard labor;
they stumbled, and there was no one to help.
13 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble;
he saved them from their distress.
14 He brought them out of darkness and gloom
and broke their chains apart.
15 Let them give thanks to the Lord
for his faithful love
and his wondrous works for all humanity.
16 For he has broken down the bronze gates
and cut through the iron bars.

17 Fools suffered affliction
because of their rebellious ways and their iniquities.

 

 

 

 

Romans 8:15 You did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear. Instead, you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry out, "Abba, Father!"

 

 

 

Romans 6:14 For sin will not rule over you, because you are not under the law but under grace.

 

Psalm 107

14 He brought them out of darkness and gloom
and broke their chains apart.

 

John 14

15 “If you love me, you will keep[g] my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor[h] to be with you forever. 17 He is the Spirit of truth. The world is unable to receive him because it doesn’t see him or know him. But you do know him, because he remains with you and will be[i] in you.

Hebrews 11:11-12

 

11 By faith even Sarah herself, when she was unable to have children, received power to conceive offspring, even though she was past the age, since she[f] considered that the one who had promised was faithful.12 Therefore, from one man—in fact, from one as good as dead—came offspring as numerous as the stars of the sky and as innumerable as the grains of sand along the seashore.

 

 

 

Gen. 18:12- So she laughed to herself: "After I am worn out and my lord is old, will I have delight?"

 

 

 

 

Hebrews 11: 11 By faith even Sarah herself, when she was unable to have children, received power to conceive offspring, even though she was past the age, since she[f] considered that the one who had promised was faithful.12 Therefore, from one man—in fact, from one as good as dead—came offspring as numerous as the stars of the sky and as innumerable as the grains of sand along the seashore.

 

 

  1. God can use any man, to be a great father who is willing to be faithful!

 

 

 

 

  1. Any father is only as good as his God!

 

 

 

 

Hebrews 11

17 By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac. He received the promises and yet he was offering his one and only son, 18 the one to whom it had been said, Your offspring[g] will be called through Isaac.[h] 19 He considered God to be able even to raise someone from the dead; therefore, he received him back, figuratively speaking.[i]

 

 

  1. A faithful wife makes it easier to be a faithful father.

 

 

 

 

  1. God is a faithful father…His goodness is not dependent on your faithfulness!

 

 

 

 

Romans 8:15

15 You did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear. Instead, you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry out, “Abba,[g]Father!”

 

 

Romans 5:8 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

But God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

 

 

 

 

Romans 8:

32 He did not even spare his own Son but offered him up for us all. How will he not also with him grant us everything? 33 Who can bring an accusation against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies.

 

Romans 8

16 The Spirit himself testifies together with our spirit that we are God’s children, 17 and if children, also heirs—heirs of God and coheirs with Christ—if indeed we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.

 

Hebrews 11

Now without faith it is impossible to please God, since the one who draws near to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

 

 

John 1

12 But to all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be[e] children of God, to those who believe in his name,13 who were born, not of natural descent,[f] or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man,[g] but of God.

The Faith Traveler

June 11, 2018

Hebrews 11

 

By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed and set out for a place that he was going to receive as an inheritance. He went out, even though he did not know where he was going. By faith he stayed as a foreigner in the land of promise, living in tents as did Isaac and Jacob, coheirs of the same promise. 10 For he was looking forward to the city that has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.

 

 

 

  1. Faith Leads to obedience

 

 

 

 

  1. Faith causes us to be foreigners in a land.

 

 

 

  1. The promise of home!

 

 

John 1:14 14 The Word became flesh and dwelt[h] among us. We observed his glory, the glory as the one and only Son[i] from the Father, full of grace and truth.

 

  • John 1:14 is a summary of the entire Gospel of John…this is the story of Jesus.

 

  • 1 Chronicles 29: 15 For we are aliens and temporary residents in your presence as were all our ancestors. Our days on earth are like a shadow, without hope.

 

  • 1 Peter 1

 

  • 13 Therefore, with your minds ready for action, be sober-minded and set your hopecompletely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires of your former ignorance. 15 But as the one who called you is holy, you also are to be holy in all your conduct; 16 for it is written, Be holy, because I am holy.[d]17 If you appeal to the Father who judges impartially according to each one’s work, you are to conduct yourselves in reverence during your time living as strangers. 18 For you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from your fathers, not with perishable things like silver or gold, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of an unblemished and spotless lamb. 20 He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was revealed in these last timesfor you. 21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

 

 

John 14:3 

If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come again and take you to myself, so that where I am you may be also.

 

 

2 Corinthians 5: So we are always confident and know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. In fact, we are confident, and we would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord. Therefore, whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to be pleasing to him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each may be repaid for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.

Hebrews 11:7

 

Hebrews 11

By faith Noah, after he was warned about what was not yet seen and motivated by godly fear, built an ark to deliver his family. By faith he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.

 

 

 

 

  1. Faith in the unseen

 

 

 

  1. Did something about it!

 

 

 

  1. An Heir by Faith

 

 

 

Ephesians 2

For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift— not from works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time for us to do.

 

 

 

Romans 8

14 For all those led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons.15 You did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear. Instead, you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry out, “Abba,[g]Father!” 16 The Spirit himself testifies together with our spirit that we are God’s children, 17 and if children, also heirs—heirs of God and coheirs with Christ—if indeed we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.

 

John 1

12 But to all who did receive him, he gave them the right to be[e] children of God, to those who believe in his name,13 who were born, not of natural descent,[f] or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man,[g] but of God.

 

 

Ephesians

10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time for us to do.

 

 

2 Timothy 2

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but one of power,[a] love, and sound judgment.

So don’t be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, or of me his prisoner. Instead, share in suffering for the gospel, relying on the powerof God. He has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began. 10 This has now been made evident through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who has abolished death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel

Hebrews 11

By faith Enoch was taken away, and so he did not experience death. He was not to be found because God took him away.[e] For before he was taken away, he was approved as one who pleased God. Now without faith it is impossible to please God, since the one who draws near to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

21 Enoch was 65 years old when he fathered Methuselah. 22 And after he fathered Methuselah, Enoch walked with God 300 years and fathered other sons and daughters. 23 So Enoch’s life lasted 365 years. 24 Enoch walked with God; then he was not there because God took him.

 

 

Galatians 5:

16 I say then, walk by the Spirit and you will certainly not carry out the desire of the flesh. 17 For the flesh desires what is against the Spirit, and the Spirit desires what is against the flesh; these are opposed to each other, so that you don’t do what you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

 

Galatians 5

19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious:[e] sexual immorality, moral impurity, promiscuity, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, …………

 

 

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness,goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. The law is not against such things.[g] 24 Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

 

 

 

Luke 9:62

62 But Jesus said to him, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”

 

 

 

 

Ephesians 2:19-20

19 So then you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with the saints, and members of God’s household, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. 21 In him the whole building, being put together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. 22 In him you are also being built together for God’s dwelling in the Spirit.
