Acts 28:17-31

Friday Evening Service

November 30, 2018 • Ron Arbaugh

"Jesus said: 'The Holy Spirit spoke the truth to your forefathers when he said through Isaiah the prophet 'Go to this people and say, "You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving." Basically, Isaiah is saying, “If you reject Jesus, it doesn’t matter what you hear or see. He is the only way to truly see God.” There are people today who say the same thing: “I have my own relationship with God. I don’t have to go through Jesus.” Or, “God and me have an agreement. He understands the way I am.” Not true. The biggest tragedy of all is that it was always God’s desire to heal them. THAT is what they missed out on."

Acts 1:1-8

Friday Evening Service • August 4, 2017 • Ron Arbaugh

Pastor Ron: "This is an important, indispensable book. Without it none of the books that follow would make much sense. We would not, for example, know who Paul was! Without this book the Apostle Paul's writings, nearly two-thirds of the NT, would be meaningless! We would have the gospels and a bunch of other stuff we could not understand."

Acts 1:9-26

Friday Evening Service • August 11, 2017 • Ron Arbaugh

Pastor Ron: "If you do not believe in a bodily, physical resurrection and return of Jesus, you are not saved! This is an essential of the faith; there is no room for disagreement or opinion on this issue."

Acts 2:1-13

Friday Evening Service • August 18, 2017 • Ron Arbaugh

Pastor Ron: "We can do nothing good without power from God. God has given His burning-Spirit to all who are His, and many of us are in the practice of snuffing out the fire every day! We snuff out the fire of God by disobedience, by unwillingness to surrender our will to His, and through compromise with the world."
