Who can argue with the fact that God must be obeyed above men? Yet, what do we do when suffering ensues for those who make the wiser choice? Welcome back to “Encounter God’s Truth,” a weekly radio and Internet broadcast outreach of Whitcomb Ministries. Dr. John Whitcomb went to be with the Lord in February of this year, but his classic Bible teaching is needed now more than ever, and we still have so much of it to share with you. So, this week we bring you more material that is brand new to our radio broadcast, as we’re opening Volume Two of our series called “Acts: Witness of the Early Church.”
Dr. Whitcomb drew on the experience of the apostles in Acts 5 to teach us how we are to handle “Suffering for the Lord.” In the United States, we have not known much about persecution, but that may be changing in the days to come. We can learn much from this text, regardless of the type of suffering that any one of us might be facing today.
With host Wayne Shepherd, we express our gratitude to the Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut, where these messages were first preached at the Independent Fundamental Bible Conference. They show us clearly once again how God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end.
