Wesley's Notes for Acts 13:10


13:10 O full of all guile - As a false prophet, and all mischief - As a magician. Thou son of the devil - A title well suited to a magician; and one who not only was himself unrighteous, but laboured to keep others from all goodness. Wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord? - Even now thou hast heard the truth of the Gospel.

    God is moving. The spread of the Gospel is off to a fine start. The message here is for us to be part of the effort to spread the gospel in our own little corners. There may be adversities and opposition but like Paul, Barnabas and other disciples, we must be prepared to soldier on for Christ.

    The Jews raised up an army of voices of men and women to run Paul and Barnabas out of Town. Just like today. The lost pushed The Light out of Public Schools, education systems,The Government. And Worse of all: The Churches. The Darkness is taken over The World like a Flood. Most say they are saved! then say get out-of-the-way I can't see the TV! the Internet is down. Some here need The Blood.
