    Acts 2:46

    And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

    Acts 2:47

    Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord ADDED to the church daily such as should be saved.

    Acts 5:42

    And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

    Acts 6:1

    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.

    Acts 16:5

    And so were the churches established in the faith, and INCREASED in number daily.

    Acts 17:11

    These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

    We need to check in daily with ACLJ dot com to see what Petitions need signatures

    Regarding, the House Democrats that are trying to close American Churches, BAN singing in Church, penalize Church members not wearing face masks! Even going so far as penalizing Christians who have Home Bible studies!!!

    Our Constitutional Freedoms regarding Churches are going away because of lack of information, not signing Petitions to stop these illegal actions,

    Complacency, inaction and not "getting involved" for whatever reason. THIS is the Church that Jesus shed His Blood, to plant in the Book of Acts. It's Biblical; It's the KNOWN Will of God, through Jesus Christ.

    So, WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO ABOUT JESUS?

    The Senate isn't doing this atrocity. It's Nancy Pelosi (who said on camera that she's a devoted Catholic and doesn't hate anybody)

    ....and her personal gang of "yes men and women".

    I think it's time the Church rose up and protest by holding up signs by the roadsides....AND SINGING

    With face masks of course. We need to show we are not going to let them win!

  • Chris - in Reply on Acts 2:47
    The Church was indeed "added to" in Acts 2:41-47. There is a reference to a sinning Church member who refuses to repent & change his behaviour: that he be removed from the Church, that he might come to his senses & be restored or else that God destroys him so that his spirit might yet be saved (1 Corinthians 5:1-5). And then in Acts 5:1-11 there is the sad account of Ananias & Sapphira, where because of sin, the Lord had dealt severely with them.
  • Lorraine Levi on Acts 2:47
    I God for the book of acts 2 47 for favor.I thank God for blessed me with his favor every day of my life and on my job and at chucrh and at home,I thank Jesus for favor were every i go and with other people in Jesus name
