Beaten, Buck-Naked and Bloody Slides, 2/23/14 Beaten, Buck-Naked and Bloody Slides, 2/23/14 Presentation Transcript

  • And  he  entered  the  synagogue  and  for  three   months  spoke  boldly,  reasoning  and  persuading   them  about  the  kingdom  of  God.  But  when  some   became  stubborn  and  con<nued  in  unbelief,   speaking  evil  of  the  Way  before  the  congrega<on,   he  withdrew  from  them  and  took  the  disciples  with   him,  reasoning  daily  in  the  hall  of  Tyrannus.  This   con<nued  for  two  years,  so  that  all  the  residents  of   Asia  heard  the  word  of  the  Lord,  both  Jews  and   Greeks.   Acts  19:8-­‐10  (ESV)  
  • “…so  that  all  the  residents  of  Asia  heard  the   word  of  the  Lord,  both  Jews  and  Greeks.”  
  • And  we  know  that  for  those  who  love  God  all   things  work  together  for  good,  for  those  who   are  called  according  to  his  purpose.   Romans  8:28  (ESV)  
  • Why  teach  verse  by  verse?   Preachers  are  HUMAN!  
  • And  God  was  doing  extraordinary  miracles  by   the  hands  of  Paul,  so  that  even  handkerchiefs  or   aprons  that  had  touched  his  skin  were  carried   away  to  the  sick,  and  their  diseases  leL  them   and  the  evil  spirits  came  out  of  them.  Then   some  of  the  i<nerant  Jewish  exorcists  undertook   to  invoke  the  name  of  the  Lord  Jesus  over  those   who  had  evil  spirits,  saying,  “I  adjure  you  by  the   Jesus  whom  Paul  proclaims.”  Seven  sons  of  a   Jewish  high  priest  named  Sceva  were  doing  this.    
  • But  the  evil  spirit  answered  them,  “Jesus  I  know,   and  Paul  I  recognize,  but  who  are  you?”  And  the   man  in  whom  was  the  evil  spirit  leaped  on  them,   mastered  all  of  them  and  overpowered  them,  so   that  they  fled  out  of  that  house  naked  and   wounded.  And  this  became  known  to  all  the   residents  of  Ephesus,  both  Jews  and  Greeks.   And  fear  fell  upon  them  all,  and  the  name  of  the   Lord  Jesus  was  extolled.    
  • Also  many  of  those  who  were  now  believers   came,  confessing  and  divulging  their  prac<ces.   And  a  number  of  those  who  had  prac<ced  magic   arts  brought  their  books  together  and  burned   them  in  the  sight  of  all.  And  they  counted  the   value  of  them  and  found  it  came  to  fiLy   thousand  pieces  of  silver.  So  the  word  of  the   Lord  con<nued  to  increase  and  prevail  migh<ly.   Acts  19:11-­‐20  (ESV)  
  • “…God  was  doing  extraordinary   miracles  by  the  hands  of  Paul…”  
  • God’s  power  at  work  through  a   human  being  that  God  selected  to   serve  in  the  building  of  God’s   church!  
  • in  Jesus’  Name     1.  Jesus  is  Lord  over  all  
  • in  Jesus’  Name     1.  Jesus  is  Lord  over  all   2.  Jesus  empowers  His  people  to  do  what  HE   commands  
  • in  Jesus’  Name     1.  Jesus  is  Lord  over  all   2.  Jesus  empowers  His  people  to  do  what  HE   commands   3.  The  authority  of  Jesus’  name  brings  GREAT   results!  
  • “So  the  word  of  the  Lord  con<nued   to  increase  and  prevail  migh<ly.”
