    Those Who Have Turned The World Upside Down - Part 1 of 2

    Those Who Have Turned The World Upside Down - Part 1 of 2

    Paul had a feeling he was not in Kansas anymore! The Apostle who called himself a "Hebrew of Hebrews" found himself far from home, out in the land of the Gentiles. And things were different, yet the same. We've come to Acts 17 in our survey of this fascinating book. We'll see that, wherever they go, Paul, Silas and Timothy make it a point to bring the gospel to Jews first, and then to the non-Jews. In both groups they'll find faith, and also fury. They became infamous as Those Who Have Turned the World Upside-Down.

    Application Of The Apostolic Decisions About Gentiles - Part 2 of 2

    Application Of The Apostolic Decisions About Gentiles - Part 2 of 2

    While Paul and Silas were obeying the command to "Go," the Holy Spirit told them to Stop! Go, preach the gospel everywhere - but not here, not just yet. That's one of the notable things we'll get out of Acts 16, today. It must be that God has a strategy. There's nothing unplanned in heaven, even though we may not know what those plans are. Yesterday we started a sermon called, Application of the Apostolic Decisions About Gentiles. Today we'll continue to learn about Paul's Second Missionary Journey.

    Application Of The Apostolic Decisions About Gentiles - Part 1 of 2

    The Jerusalem Council had made its decision. Now, how would the people in the pews receive it? Some unauthorized teachers and Pharisees - who else? - had tried to put the church under the Law. But the dustup had been resolved. The Gentiles' freedom in Christ had been preserved... with some stipulations. Let's learn what these were, and how both Jews and Gentiles liked the outcome.

    The Blessing Of God To Both Jew And Gentile - Part 2 of 2

    The Blessing Of God To Both Jew And Gentile - Part 2 of 2

    If Gentiles don't have to become Jews, do Jews have to become Gentiles? I've been known to ask trick questions to get you thinking. But this question is a sincere one that has implications for us today, just as it did 2,000 years ago. Should Jews give up their cultural and religious distinctives when they embrace Jesus? Are these just remnants of the Old Covenant to be cast off, or do they enrich the faith of the believing Jew? Jim takes us back to Peter's speech in Acts 15.

    The Blessing Of God To Both Jew And Gentile - Part 1 of 2

    No salvation without circumcision? It must have seemed very logical to some of the early Christians: God had commanded His people to follow some rules and to carry in their bodies the sign of being in covenant with Him. If Gentiles wanted to join the people of God, they would have to observe the Sabbath, keep a kosher diet, and be circumcised. But there's a flaw in that logic: This covenant isn't like that covenant. We have a record of how the early church resolved their controversy, and we'll look at it today with Pastor Jim.

    A Light For The Gentiles - Part 2 of 2

    A Light For The Gentiles - Part 2 of 2

    Don't expect any mercy from the court of public opinion. Mobs are irrational, and that's never good. The people who hailed Paul and Barnabas as gods quickly came to believe they were the worst of men. It would be hard for us to believe that the crowd at Lystra could change its collective mind so quickly - and so completely - except that we saw the same thing happen to Jesus between Palm Sunday and Good Friday. Jim will read from Acts 14:15 as we complete his sermon, A Light for the Gentiles.

50 years of seeking knowledge

Pastor Jim has been striving to discover and reveal knowledge from scripture for many decades. If you seek spiritual “meat“, this podcast is for you. Along with Charles Spurgeon, RC Sproul, JI Packer, C Stanley and Francis Schaefer, Jim Custer is clearly all of gods instruments for discerning scripture. (Even though he’s tried to retire in three different times). He delivers in a way that entices and motivates. Add it to your growth routine.
