    Sharlet; We are commanded by God NOT to follow the multitudes to do evil, and NOT to take up a reproach against our neighbor. Yet there are many who have turned away from the holy commandment and have given their hearts to hearken to lies and slanders. The one who wants to REALLY do this country good, has given up his own private family life, and his hard earned success; is hated and lied about!
  • Sharlet
    Acts 9- This chapter can be use to enlighten us as to what God is saying in this fallen world today. Many are wondering about Trump as president but as Christian believers we should be praying and expecting for God's mighty transformation to take place. The pride and ignorance must be removed. God has a plan for America and He knows when and how He will demonstrate this miraculous transformation.

    Hello Brother Peter; thank you very much; your posts are always uplifting! Do you ever wonder what in the world happened to Christianity, seeing it had such a powerful success in the beginning?

So many are offended and fall away.

    Saul of Tarsus is now converted. Only Christ Himself can perform such transformation. Strengthened by the Holy Ghost, Saul is emboldened to preach the Gospel. The Jews sought to kill him but they had no such powers as Saul was being prepared for a great Ministry for Christ. Peter has also been performing miracles through the power of the Holy Spirit. What a great beginning for the Apostles.
  • Ray321
    Acts 9:15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior had chosen Apostle Paul for the Gentiles. This will be the most important time in Paul's life when Jesus speak to him. It will change the world for ever, the Grace age of the Church . Praise the Lord.
