The creative work of God's Spirit through the preaching of the apostles brings into being a community of men and women who are marked out as Christ's disciples. This body of Christians is a believing, baptised, faithful, potent, united, loving, joyful, growing community, young but essentially complete in form and function. The infant church is and has what every church should long to be and have in its proper place and fashion, a model of vibrant Christianity.
We expand upon our previous comments on Luke 3:14 and discuss the fact that there is NO apostrophe in "Veterans Day" and the fact that TWICE in one verse, God calls government servants (whether police or military) "ministers of God".
Also Reference: Romans 13:7
Luke guides us through the obedient return of the disciples to Jerusalem, a submission to Christ's will that might immediately seem underwhelming and anticlimactic.
He documents the gathered group—the eleven disciples, with the women, with Mary, with Jesus' brothers—as they wait in an upper room, an outwardly unimpressive group.
He records the earnest prayer in which they engage, persistent, united and sincere, as they call on the Lord for the blessings which he has promised.
Do we know and feel the value of such prayer in the light of the promises we have received and the blessings we anticipate?
October 24th is the annual "United Nations Day". We discuss the Antichrist nature of the U.N. organization with special mention of the late President Harry S. Truman and his unbiblical and misguided notions about world government and world peace.

CURRENT EVENTS UPDATE: (1) We see the Fed's CBDC (digital currency) implementation along with the W.H.O. United Nations Agenda 2030 playing out with segments from OAN's Alison Steinberg's interview with Alex Newman of Liberty Sentinel Media, Dr. Meryl Nass speaking before the European Parliament and comments by Katie Hopkins about the Orwellian regulations being imposed in Wales, U.K. (2) We demonstrate the mindlessness of being a "news anchor" with an hilarious clip regarding "suicide prevention".
In our study, we look at the Bible prophecy explaining that BEFORE the Great Tribulation and Day of the Lord takes place, there will be "a falling away first". We discuss Apostasy and examples taking place, as well as the state of apostasy the moment after the Rapture...

You Need To Be Saved
3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God
You Cannot Save Yourself
3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost.
4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
Jesus Has Provided For Your Salvation
5:8 but God commendth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
By Faith, Pray and Accept Jesus As Your Saviour Today
10:9-13 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, that shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confess is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew or the Greek:
The Gospel tells us that all those who believe in Christ are saved. This means we are no longer working to try to gain God's approval, but we already have it through the finished work of Christ. This reality gives us a new paradigm for living our lives.
We conclude our 'Glorious Humanity' series this week considering the wonder of our union with Christ. We have died with him, have been buried with him, raised with him, and… when he, who is our life appears, we too will appear with him in glory. In Christ, we are kept safe and secure, 'hidden with Christ in God.' Such is the wonder of 'Christ in you, the hope of glory.'
Labor Day represents a very important victory by American workers against two extremes and is ultimately the result of the influence of the Bible and Christian ethics on American culture and society.
Just as any reasonable and logical thinking man or woman sees the reality of the Fall and Flood accounts in Scripture, these were ancient prophecies which were also fulfilled in ancient times.
And the same is true with the Tower of Babel. The actual historical evidence fits the Biblical account (as well as the DNA evidence!) and is Evidence that the Bible itself is strong Evidence for God.
CURRENT EVENTS: We discuss the Maui Fire that may have killed more than 1,000 and burned out all the non-elites and non-corporate establishment "box store" locations making way for the WEF Globalist 15-Minute Cities.
In our study, we see that the number of the Apostles was limited to twelve and the membership was exclusive with signs to establish each Apostle. We are to test and reject all false professions of those claiming to be apostles. And we should recognize that they were rewarded greatly in glory but suffered great persecution in their role as apostles.
