John Whitcomb: August 19, 2019

Acts chapter 3 gives the account of a mighty miracle performed by the Apostle Peter, with the Apostle John by his side. Yet the biggest lessons we learn from this passage do not relate to our performing of sign miracles—but rather to very practical matters of ministry in the midst of tremendous spiritual opportunity, blended with opposition and the threat of persecution. Furthermore, it’s against this backdrop that the apostles actually offer the nation of Israel an opportunity to receive Christ as king—and to enter His earthly kingdom—one more time following the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus, and His ascension back to heaven. This week on “Encounter God’s Truth,” author and theologian Dr. John Whitcomb shows us how this context has much to teach us about the “unconditional covenant commitment” that God made with Abraham and his descendants, the nation of Israel. He brings Part One of a new message on “The Re-offer of the Kingdom,” as we continue in Volume One of our series titled “Acts: Witness of the Early Church.” Whitcomb Ministries thanks Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut, for permission to broadcast this audio, which reinforces the fact that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. With host Wayne Shepherd, we thank you for listening.
