The Church: Origin and Purpose
Marcus W. McDaniel • First Baptist Church of Hoquiam • Sermon • • 56 views • 48:12
Perception Pray Read 1 At Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion of what was known as the Italian Cohort, 2 a devout man who feared God with all his household, gave alms generously to the people, and prayed continually to God. 3 About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision…

When we left off last week, Saul, the persecutor of the church, met Jesus on the road to Damascus. He was struck blind and instructed to go to the city and wait for a man named Ananias who would come and restore his eyesight. The Lord tells Ananias to go and face Saul to restore his eyesight, which would…

We were in New York City a couple of weeks ago, and at one point I was riding a bus from LaGuardia airport to our hotel in Queens. As a Jesus follower, I want to consider others better than myself, and make room for others, so I went to the back of the bus, took a window seat, and piled my bags on my…

When I was a kid, my dad built me a wooden house on stilts. Kind of like a treehouse but not in a tree; it was on stilts and had two entrances, one with a slide and the other a ladder, and two windows. There was a sign over the entrance at the ladder that my mom made for me. “Boys Club - Boys Allowed…

In Acts 10 the Apostle Peter was called by God to put aside the Jewish purity laws which had distinguished Jews from everyone else for fifteen hundred years! Why did God so abruptly discard such an important part of Jewish identity? What was to be gained? Nothing but the entire world. Join us as we unpack God's amazing strategy to redeem mankind as the church goes global.
The Coming of the Holy Spirit
Ruel Guerrero • Grace Communion Las Vegas • Sermon • • 53 views • 34:37
Cornelius' encounter with an angel and the Holy Spirit's baptism of his entire household was the beginning of the Church going "to the ends of the earth." Peter and the Jews had to witness the blessing of the Holy Spirit on gentiles for them to realize God did not favor any particular special nation. In Christ, we are all one race, one people, one nation. There is no one unclean or impure.

Because God in Christ cleanses all sin for all who believe in Him, we must not treat as dirty what God Himself has cleansed. (Three blind spots for the church)

Peter had spent his life with the knowledge that uncircumcised gentiles where unclean and he was not allowed to enter their homes or eat with them. Now after decades of living this way God was trying to teach Peter and the Jew needed to change their approach to gentiles.

Last week Sharon preached on the Great Commission where we heard that the apostles are to go out into the whole world, baptize people, and teach them everything that Jesus had commanded them. Then as we turn to our text this week we have that very thing happening. It is a beautiful connection between…

Introduction It has now officially been ten years since I graduated from Bible school. As I thought about that recently I reflected on one of my regrets. You see, I went to Bible school because I wanted to know the Bible. I wanted to be able to answer people’s questions with a Bible verse the way my…

This ch. is where all that changes. What we learn in these two chapters is that the gospel is for everyone. No one is excluded.…

Peter declares Jesus as the Son of God, But he at times wavers and another time again asserts his alliegience. There are similar characters in the OT like Jacob, Moses, David etc. For.eg. Moses a convict in the eyes of Pharao still standing against the Pharao, but fails in the wilderness of Sin Kadesh as hedid what he was supposed not to do at all (Numbers 20:11; where upon he was denied the entry to the promised Land (Deuteronomy 32:51)All were great only when they walked with God and when God was with them. But when they handled according to their will and forgot God they failed . Peter also failed when he departed Jesus. His denial, his resuming the old profession and failing there utterly without catching any thing. But as he received Holy Spirit He stood for Jesus and feared no consequences. He even was not stubborn to execute his will alone. Instead he was open enough to accept the Will of God though he was unwilling to share that insight. He after having the vision, was ready to baptize Cornelius and accept him to the fold. But it was a long process mixed with denial , failiure and conviction. At last the conviction that Jesus is Son of God prevailed. This is repeated in the Acts of Peter in the Quest for the Historical Apostles P.84. The question of Peter to Jesus as he was fleeing from Rome to escape prosecution when he met Jesus coming in the direction of Rome Quo vadis, Domine? and Jesus answer to Peter hearing which Peter returns to Rome and became a martyr. If we go only our way we will only fail and will be like the donkey on whom Jesus rode. When Jesus is no more upon the donkey, it is nobody. Two verses. 2.Corinthians 11:9; I Corinthians 15:10.
