Bible Study

      This is the main message for Paul's testimony to King Agrippa. It's all about Paul's famous conversion, and this is the third time that Luke allows the audience to hear what happened to make Saul to become Paul.

     Also, Paul witnessed of how he was appointed by Jesus to turn the gentiles from darkness to light. To lead them who were under the power of Satan to God.  

     How do you know you or other people are under the power of Satan? It's not a difficult question to answer. Whenever someone cannot turn from darkness to light then that person should be under the power of Satan. Paul's mission as well as our mission is to bring light to those people. By doing this Kingdom mission, you are declaring war against Satan, do you know that?
                     
Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage of scripture we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him, while listening to "Gabriel's Oboe"

    What I heard from Jesus today is: Who are under the power of Satan?
   
    What I received from Jesus is a realization of our dangerous situation. If we want to pull away from darkness to light, we are declaring war against Satan. If we are helping other people to pull away from darkness to light, we are declaring was against Satan. What dangerous it can be?

    Well, you should know that he was one of the Archangels and those who followed him to his dark kingdom are all ex-angels! Do you know that in King Hezekiah time God sent one angel to help Hezekiah and the angel killed 185,000 Assyrian soldiers in one night(Isaiah 37:36) . Do you think you can be able to declare war against Satan? 

    Only those who have a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus can fight this good fight. Paul demonstrated that relationship in today's passage of how he received a tailor-made mission strategy different from other Christians. Jesus told His disciples to start from Jerusalem but Paul started from Damascus.

Dear Lord Jesus,                                                                                 Help us to know who are those people you want us to pull away from Satan's power and lead us to fight a good fight for you.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
