"...that through Him, all who believe in His name will receive remission of sins." Acts 10: 48 Where would we be, if the events of this chapter had never happened? If Peter had not obeyed the Lord, set aside his prejudices, and faithfully preached the Good News to the non-Jews? We "gentiles" would have no hope, nor would all the rest of the world. This morning, Pastor Dave expounds upon the beauty of God's plan for the whole world.  Message by Pastor Dave Johnson, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA  From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts, Dear Lovers of God

"But a voice spoke to him again the second time: 'What God has cleansed, you must not call common'." Acts 10:15 The great disciple, Peter, was carrying within his heart the very same tendencies toward pride and prejudices that all of us have. But--praise His name!--God was going to do something about it! Message by Pastor Dave Johnson, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA.  From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God

"Then the churches throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had peace and were edified." Acts 9: 31 In the wake of Saul, the Destoyer's, removal from the scene, the fledgling churches enter into a peaceful period where they are free to do what all Christians are called to do: they minister to the hurting, they heal the afflicted, they rescue the lost.  Message by Pastor Dave Johnson, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From the Pastors Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God

This morning we find our new believer, Saul (or 'Paul' as he soon will be) completely alone and cut off in this world. His former friends are his bitterest enemies. The Christian brothers don't trust him at all. he is the ultimate 'outsider'. Does that strike a chord? And yet he could be more safely 'in' if he tried.

"The Lord said to him: 'Arise and go to the street called 'Straight' and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus, for--behold!--he prays!" Acts 9:11 NKJV Could it possibly be a coincidence? That this greatest conversion of all time--Saul the 'Destroyer' kneeling before Jesus!--should happen on 'Straight Street', of all places! Praise God! Goodness knows, the man has been on 'Crooked' long enough! Isn't it marvelous how our Savior works!  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA   From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God

"...he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying: 'Saul! Saul! Why are you persecuting me?'" Acts 9: 4 It has to be one of the most dramatic moments in all the B ib le: the complete overthrow of a wicked man. Saul, the great persecutor, was the 'ravenous wolf' from the Tribe of Benjamin, prophesied by Jacob some 2000 years before. (Gen 49: 27). But hang on! He is just about to become a 'lamb'!  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA  From the Pastors' series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God

"Then the Spirit said to Philip: 'Go near and overtake this chariot...'" Acts 8: 29 He was treasurer to the Queen of a thoroughly pagan land; a man of great authority and prestige! Who would ever expect him to come to the Lord? And yet, there he was: in the middle of the wilderness, driven by the dictates of a deep spiritual hunger!  Message by Pastor Dave Johnson, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA  From the Pastors' Series: The Book of Acts: Dear Lovers of God

"But Peter said to him: 'May your money perish with you because you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money.'"  Acts 8: 20 NKJV It is the bedrock foundation of the Gospel of Christ that not a thing we now have, as Christians, has come by our own means. Nothing was 'bought', 'earned', 'acquired' by your own means, dear Christian, or mine. No. Jesus did all that on the Cross, and that's why it's called the 'Gospel': 'Good News'!

"Therefore, those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the Word..." Acts 8: 4 What an amazing God we serve! He overthrows evil with good; turns trials into triumphs! This morning, our little church is 'scattered' under the fierce persecutions of the enemies of God. But God is in control! He just turns every fugitive into a missionary!
