Acts 6 -- The Last Straw And Acts 7 -- Are These Charges True?

  1. 6 In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Hellenistic Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. 2 So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables.3 Brothers and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spiritand wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them 4 and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.” 5 This proposal pleased the whole group. They chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Spirit; also Philip, Procorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas from Antioch, a convert to Judaism. 6 They presented these men to the apostles, who prayed and laid their hands on them. 7 So the word of God spread. The number of disciples in Jerusalem increased rapidly, and a large number of priests became obedient to the faith. This is a picture of the church growing and developing different ministries.

    Lord we pray that the number of disciples would increase and that they all would be obedient to the faith. They would be obedient to leave their people, their traditions, everything that prevents them from obeying the faith. May we trust in your promises and worship you in this day. Lord the time of your return has drawn nigh and this government is dealing treacherously with us, forcing us to throw out our babies so that they would die. Have you indeed seen the oppression of your people? Have you heard their groanings? Is it not time to come down and set them free? They persecute the prophets, the ones who predict the coming righteous one. They betrayed and murdered the Lord Jesus. Lord we pray that heaven would be opened and we would see the Son of Man coming.
