  • In our journey through the Book of Acts, we have studied that serious incident in Acts Chapter 4 where Peter and John had been thrown into prison, because they had healed that crippled man in his 40's, in the Name of the Risen and Living Lord Jesus Christ. They were put on trial before the…

  • In Acts Chapter 4, Peter and John are in prison. They were seized and incarcerated in this Jerusalem jail, simply because a man in his 40's who had never walked had been healed, and they explained that the Risen and Living Lord Jesus Christ was behind the healing. They are brought in before the…

  • We move on to Acts Chapter 3, but let's remember the situation. At the end of Acts Chapter 2 there is such real fellowship in The Church of Jesus Christ, with a sharing of possessions as well as problems. They continue meeting in The Temple for worship, but breaking bread in the homes of other…

  • We are in Acts Chapter 2. Peter has been explaining what the risen and living Lord Jesus Christ has done in the Temple in Jerusalem when He baptised these 120 disciples in the Holy Spirit in fulfilment of what was promised.

  • We are studying the opening verses of Acts Chapter 2, where Dr Luke tells us how The Church of Jesus Christ was launched and birthed. Some were baffled, amazed and perplexed. Only God would have used such a radical method - and in such a setting - the Temple in Jerusalem. Peter rises to his feet to explain what…

  • If the Book of Acts is a pivotal Book in the New Testament, then Acts Chapter 2 must be regarded as a pivotal passage. It is a vital link, or key, which can open many doors. Without a clear understanding of Pentecost - what actually happened, and what the consequences were - much of the rest of the New Testament…

  • Before the risen and living Jesus ascended back to God the Father, He instructed His disciples, to wait in the city of Jerusalem until they had received the power of the Holy Spirit. They were going to be obedient to Jesus. It always pays to be obedient to Jesus. They patiently wait and faithfully pray. In [scripture=Acts…

  • In [scripture=Acts 1:9]verse 9 of the first chapter of Acts, the scene is the summit of The Mount of Olives on the east side of Jerusalem. Jesus begins to ascend. He just goes up and up. His work on earth is over. Jesus is going home where He belonged, having been away for 33 years. He continues to rise, until…

  • We are reading and studying these opening [scripture=Acts 1:1-8]verses of the Book of Acts. It is some six weeks after Passover - forty days after God the Father brought back Jesus Christ from the dead. These have been traumatic weeks. There have been various meetings with the risen and living Lord Jesus Christ…

  • Come with me on a journey through the Book of Acts over these next few weeks. But hear me on this vital point - more importantly than reading these words, is the reading of the Scriptures, the Word of God, itself. Read [scripture=Acts 1]Acts Chapter 1.
