Title: A Study in the Book of Acts


1
A Study in the Book of Acts
2
The Dilemma
3
The Power Struggle
4
  • Acts 412 - Salvation is found in no one else,
    for there is no other name under heaven given to
    men by which we must be saved."

5
  • We bear
  • an exclusive message

6
  • Acts 418-20 - commanded them not to speak or
    teach at all in the name of Jesus.

7
  • 19 But Peter and John replied, "Judge for
    yourselves whether it is right in God's sight to
    obey you rather than God. 20 For we cannot help
    speaking about what we have seen and heard."

8
  • 21 After further threats they let them go.

9
  • 23 On their release, Peter and John went back to
    their own people and reported all that the chief
    priests and elders had said to them.

10
One Powerful Prayer
  • 24 When they heard this, they raised their voices
    together in prayer to God. "Sovereign Lord," they
    said, "you made the heaven and the earth and the
    sea, and everything in them.

11
One Powerful Prayer
  • 25 You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth
    of your servant, our father David
  • "'Why do the nations rage
  • and the peoples plot in vain?
  • 26 The kings of the earth take their stand and
    the rulers gather together against the LORD
  • and against his Anointed One.'

12
One Powerful Prayer
  • 27 Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together
    with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in
    this city to conspire against your holy servant
    Jesus, whom you anointed.

13
One Powerful Prayer
  • 28 They did what your power and will had decided
    beforehand should happen.

14
Sovereign Lord
A Ruler With Absolute Power
15
  • Luke 2 - 29 "Sovereign Lord, as you have
    promised, you now dismiss your servant in peace.
    30 For my eyes have seen your salvation, 31 which
    you have prepared in the sight of all people, 22
    a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for
    glory to your people Israel."

16
  • Revelation 610 They called out in a loud
    voice, "How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true,
    until you judge the inhabitants of the earth

17
  • Verse 24 - "you made the heaven and the earth and
    the sea, and everything in them.

18
Benjamin Franklinlin
19
  • Verse 24 - "you made the heaven and the earth and
    the sea, and everything in them.

The Point nothing and no one is greater than
the creator
20
  • 25 You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth
    of your servant, our father David
  • "'Why do the nations rage
  • and the peoples plot in vain?
  • 26 The kings of the earth take their stand and
    the rulers gather together against the LORD
  • and against his Anointed One.'

21
  • 27 Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together
    with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in
    this city to conspire against your holy servant
    Jesus, whom you anointed.

22
  • you knew that people would rebel against the
    Messiah

23
  • The Point even though evil can appear to be
    strong, no one or nothing can frustrate the Lord

24
  • Verse 28 They did what your power and will had
    decided beforehand should happen.
  • Even though all who plotted against Jesus were
    wicked, they only did what your power and will
    had decided beforehand should happen

25
  • The Point even wickedness can be used by God
    for his glory

26
God is not a small God.
27
He is not a tame lion!
28
  • The crisis of faith comes when God seems to
    contradict God

29
  • Job 120-22 - At this, Job got up and tore his
    robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the
    ground in worship 21 and said
  • The LORD gave
  • and the LORD has taken away blessed be
    the name of the Lord.

30
Blessed Be Your Name
  • You give and take away
  • You give and take away
  • My heart will choose to say
  • Lord, blessed be Your name

31
Psalm 13
  • 1 How long, O LORD ?
  • Will you forget me forever? How long will you
    hide your face from me?  
  • 2 How long must I wrestle with my thoughts
           and every day have sorrow in my heart?
    How long will my enemy triumph over me?

32
  • God has given us enough revelation about himself
  • to make faith credible
  • yet left enough out
  • to make faith necessary.
  • Ravi Zacharias

33
Turn Up The Heat
  • 29 Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable
    your servants to speak your word with great
    boldness. 30 Stretch out your hand to heal and
    perform miraculous signs and wonders through the
    name of your holy servant Jesus."

34
  • 31 After they prayed, the place where they were
    meeting was shaken. And they were all filled
    with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God
    boldly.
