Pastor Wesley 7/15/12
Peter and John were on their way to the temple. When they arrived there at the gate called "Beautiful" a man was asking for money. Peter and John said, silver or gold I have not, but they shared the word with this man and a miracle took place. When u live for Christ, expect some opposition. The redeemed were not well liked by the unredeemed! The gates of hell will come your way and try to make you lose focus. Your focus on God! People are making decisions on trying to keep us from the truth. Peter was asked, "Who gave you authority?" They threatened Petet and John, telling them not to preach or teach anymore. When they were released, they ran to the church. Hooked up with others who believed as they did and shared what happened to them. They reported the drama! If you are threatened
enough, then it will have an effect on you
and get scared. Fear set in! When threatened, learn how to contact the throne. They had others praying with them. They
were praying the same thing. They were
praying on one accord! On the same page!
Pray recognizing his sovereign position. When things have gotten out of control in your life, you need to go to the controller!
They prayed and recognized God permitted
the Savior to suffer. It was already ordained
by God. God will allow suffering for a season. The petition was not for conviction.
It was not a petition of protection either. This petition sought provision to heal.
You don't have to worry about hurting
when you know the healer! If you don't
witness any hurt, then you can't be a witness to tell others he will heal you! The
company was controlled. God can transform
the company. The place is shaken. The
talk with Jesus will not prevent the threats
from coming, but no that he is with you!
The spirit was poured into them. They
had been filled with the spirit. They were
filled in chapter 2 & 4. Why? The glass
was empty but full of air. How did he
get the air out, he filled it with water. We need to be filled with the holy ghost. There
should be some evidence shown. We need to witness! Fill with holy ghost to get rid of the fear! When threatened, go to God and
he will strengthen you! After the prayer, the
power will be on! When you have the
Holy Ghost power, you will proclaim the
scripture! God is looking for someone
who is going to be bold for Christ!
