[Acts 3] Peter is healing miracle in the Temple
The lame nameless man lay him daily at the gate of the Temple called the Beautiful Gate begging… However, Peter said, “I have no silver or gold, but what I have I give you; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, stand up and walk.”…and immediately his feet and ankles were made strong.
Our God wants us to challenge our limitations in 2017
I do not know what limitations they are, but whatever it is that has restricted, immobilized or kept most of us in a box, the time has come for us to do what we thought we could not do
Are you tired of being restricted?
Are you ready to go to the next level?
The stage is set, we have already beckoned our Lord, let him show up until despair disappears, until migraines headaches and depression leave our better lifestyle, suicide and anxiety is defeated in our better lifestyle
Isaiah preached that the Messiah was coming
John the Baptist was preaching in the wilderness “repent for the kingdom of God is at hand” it was good news to weary torn people who needed political and spiritual liberty. They were sick of being controlled by Roman Caesar
John the Baptist was his own individual different wearing camel eating honey and wild locust. He did not try to be fresh and exciting; he preached the same sermon daily “repent for the kingdom of God is at hand”
The masses were excited, supported and followed him until one day he looked out and saw a stranger among them and said “behold the lamb of God who takes the sins of the world” they looked around and saw a man who looked like ordinary and was out of their neighbor, a carpenters son. They said this does not look like God
A controversy broke which ended up with John Baptist eventual beheading
Are you discouraged in our better lifestyle because your prayers have not been answered out of your tradition?
John the Baptist disciples begun to scatter Jesus had mercy on them as they were like a sheep without a shepherd, he begun to gather them, only 3 years later to find himself being whipped like a criminal on post, from judgement hall to another, and was rejected. the disciples begun to scatter Thomas begun to doubt, Peter begun to curse until he resurrected and only revealing him to his own only Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he vanished from their sight.
IS God giving you signs that will make you say that you did not imagine him, that you really touched him that you really remember what he did for you, even if people will laugh at you, because we know in whom we believe and have been persuaded
Some of us have been in hell and back and are not afraid to be scandalized
[Acts 3] Early apostles like Peter and John was a new breed of bold preachers among critics, turbulent, Christian killers’ atmosphere and a church is being born right in the presence of adversities
Is it amazing how our God can preach a better lifestyle for all right in the midst of darkness and despair.
Let us not wait for a perfect to do accomplish his will otherwise; we will be locked in a prison of despair and regret
Our God will give use 2 loaves and 5 fishes and tell masses to sit down he is about to serve lunch
His strength is made perfect in our weakness
Let us not sit back and wait
Though he slay me, I will get up and do
Some of the early Christians apostles were beheaded and crucified upside down and our God business did not stop, let us continue to the good works for who has called us is faithful to the end and he will never disappoint
He will allow us to grow darkness and adversities
Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, at three o’clock in the afternoon
What time is it in our better lifestyle?
We have to know the time otherwise; it will become a lost opportunity
Be blessed until next time
