John Whitcomb: July 1, 2019

We begin a new message called “The Miracles of Pentecost” this week on "Encounter God’s Truth"—as we continue in Volume One of our series on “Acts: Witness of the Early Church.” We have spent four programs looking at Acts 1 and laying the foundation for this series. Now we turn to Acts 2—where we will begin to study the amazing testimony that God provided supernaturally to mark the start of the church age. With host Wayne Shepherd, we wish all of our listeners here in the United States a happy holiday week ahead, as we celebrate Independence Day on Thursday. We also encourage you, one final time, to send your greetings to Dr. John Whitcomb on the occasion of his 95th birthday earlier this month. God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! We want to thank Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut, for helping us to bring you that Word here on this radio and Internet outreach of Whitcomb Ministries.
