Acts 13b trust god enough to live by his word

  1. 1. Stone Creek www.rossvillechurch.com 781 Salem Road, Rossville, GA 30741 1February 15. 2012
  2. 2. Acts 13 1 Now there were in the church that was atAntioch certain prophets and teachers; as Barn-abas, and Simeon that was called Niger, and Luciusof Cyrene, and Manaen, which had been broughtup with Herod the tetrarch, and Saul. 2 As theyministered to the Lord, and fasted, the Holy Ghostsaid, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the workwhereunto I have called them. 2
  3. 3. 3 And when they had fasted andprayed, and laid their hands onthem, they sent them away. 4 Sothey, being sent forth by theHoly Ghost, departed untoSeleucia; and from thence theysailed to Cyprus. 5 And whenthey were at Salamis, theypreached the Word of God inthe synagogues of the Jews:and they had also John to theirminister. 3
  4. 4. 6 And when they had gonethrough the isle unto Paphos(on the west coast), they founda certain sorcerer, a falseprophet, a Jew, whose namewas Barjesus: 7 Which waswith the deputy of thecountry, Sergius Paulus, aprudent man; who called forBarnabas and Saul, and desiredto hear the Word of God. 4
  5. 5. Two very different men:Barjesus was a false prophet and a magician. Any power he had came from demons. Sergius Paulus was a prudent man, deputy of that country. 5
  6. 6. Sergius Paulus wanted to hear the Word of God. 6
  7. 7. 8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name byinterpretation) withstood them, seeking to turnaway the deputy from the faith. He wasnt wise, but he was sly. He knew that if the deputy believed the True God, he would get rid of his pet sorcerer. 7
  8. 8. 9 Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled withthe Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him, 10 And said, Ofull of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of thedevil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thounot cease to pervert the Right Ways of the Lord?You cant deal tactfully with the devil. 8
  9. 9. James 4 7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. To resist is to stand against.Not meekly and mildly; stand strong in the Power of Gods Might. 9
  10. 10. 11 And now, behold, the Hand of theLord is upon thee, and thou shalt beblind, not seeing the sun for a season.And immediately there fell on him amist and a darkness; and he went aboutseeking some to lead him by the hand.9 Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filledwith the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him,We cant do such miracles in our own power. Only under the direction and in the Power of the Holy Ghost. 10
  11. 11. 12 Thenthe deputy, when he saw what wasdone, believed, being astonished at the Doctrine ofthe Lord. Put all your faith -- all your hope In the Word of God. 11
  12. 12. Luke 4 4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It iswritten, That man shall not live by bread alone, butby Every Word of God.Proverbs 30 5 Every Word of God is pure: He is aShield unto them that put their trust in Him. We put our trust in God as we live according to the Word of God. To love and trust God is to obey His Word. 12
