We take part in this series of meetings to end the year. We want a new beginning. We see that time is getting shorter, our departure is near.
Peter explained what God had given him concerning the Gentiles. They were not to be forced to do these things so as not to incur their wrath. The death of the Lord had such a profound impact. "Today this word of the Scripture, which you have just heard, is fulfilled. (Luke 4:21) When John the Baptist saw this man from Nazareth, he said, "I did not know him, but he who sent me to baptize with water, he said to me, 'The one on whom you will see the Spirit come down and stand is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit. (John 1:33) He testified to who Jesus was. "Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world." (John 1: 29) This transports a human to a position of Son of God.
Jesus Christ was 100% man and 100% God. He had the ability to change the course of all humanity. "He had no beauty or radiance to attract our eyes, and his appearance was not pleasing to us. (Isaiah 53:2) Jesus has power, more than an atomic bomb. The power we have is Jesus. The power of Jesus is inexhaustible. Be glad to know Him. He created the world, He has all power, so what is human nature to Him? Ask and believe! He has the power, you can never exhaust Him.
There are always 3 kinds of believers. When I know my God is all-powerful, then nothing is impossible for me. You always say MY disease, but it is not your property. You must always refuse what the devil gives you. The devil is unbelieving, he will always try to give it to you. Refuse this, I want good health. "Beloved, I wish you to prosper in every way and be in good health, as the state of your soul prospers." (3 John 1:2) We cannot walk as unbelievers.
When Jesus wanted to do something, He called everyone out. Then He prayed. How can you pray with people who do not believe? We must know the God we serve. Our condition cannot always be the same. Our nature must change in depth. God has given us His power. God does not need help. God has said, so I obey. Nothing can surprise our God. The time of miracles is not over, the problem is us.
God has turned His eyes to the nations, this is an extraordinary grace. God had made a covenant with Abraham, with His people. Pride leads to destruction. The religious people called themselves Abraham's descendants, but God had rejected them. The God of Israel became the God of all others. God had given circumcision to Abraham and his descendants. So there were the circumcised and the others were the uncircumcised. But God turned to them. No one could imagine that. "I will call the one who was not my people my people, and the one who was not the beloved. They will be called sons of the living God. (Romans 9:25-26) God had already announced this. See the importance of the Holy Scriptures. God always does through the Scriptures.
God did not choose all the nations, but among the nations He chose a people who bear His name. A woman who bears her husband's name belongs to her husband. No one can turn around. Abraham made a covenant with God, so he was God's property. God put His name on a gentile people, so they are His property. How could the blessing of Abraham's seed have its effect on the gentiles?
This is how we became Abraham's seed to become God's property. God always does according to His Word.
Jesus Christ is none other than the Scripture. If you love Him, you keep the Scriptures. Jesus Christ is the Word of God. When you have Him in your heart, the Word takes you back and leads you. To touch the heart of God, there is only one way: obedience.
Jesus is more than gold. We have been created by the Word. Gold and silver were also created by His Word. We have wealth. When the crowd was hungry, Jesus simply prayed and the loaves were multiplied. They all ate and there was still some left. Nothing is impossible with God. The thing that will get you out of the coffin is not your wealth, but this Word of God.
God finishes with this people before he finishes with the people of Israel. The temple is being built in Israel. It needed a red cow without d "faut of 2 years to sanctify the temple. This cow has been found, she is 1 year old. The time is closer than you think.
This people must bear His name, not the name of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. But who is this people? As long as this people is there, the atomic bomb cannot come. There will be sounds of war, but there is a hand that holds this.
When you read Acts 15:13, ask yourself who are these people? What are the conditions God has set for this people?
To answer that, read 2 Corinthians 6:14, Revelation 18:4 and 1 Peter 2.
We are entering a special phase. Let's ask ourselves: Why are we entering? And who are we?
