John Whitcomb: September 3, 2019

Currently on “Encounter God’s Truth,” we are hearing Volume One of a series called “Acts: Witness of the Early Church.” These are messages that Dr. John Whitcomb presented before a live conference audience at the Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut. In this broadcast, host Wayne Shepherd helps set the context for the conclusion of the teaching called “The Re-offer of the Kingdom.” In Acts 3, the Apostles Peter and John made a special promise to the Jewish people very early in the history of the church. We will see, however, how those people ultimately rejected it and would suffer the consequences for that decision. Dr. Whitcomb takes this opportunity to explain the distinctives of the church—the new program that God began on the Day of Pentecost, 50 days following the resurrection of Jesus. The church is different from the nation of Israel—and God has a future plan for each of them, which He will fulfill down to the final details. Whitcomb Ministries thanks Middletown Bible Church for their permission to bring these messages to you on radio and the Internet. They demonstrate powerfully that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end.
