church, division, early, enemy, problems, unity
The enemy of the church has tried his best to destroy it from the outside and since that hasn't worked he is going to try from the inside. Jesus himself said a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand so to keep unity problems need to be dealt with quickly!

acts 6, jealousy, martyr, sanhedrin, stephen
We are introduced to a man named Stephen. Luke says he is a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit so we know he loved serving Jesus! Because of his love for Jesus he will soon become the first martyr of the church, all because of jealousy.

apostles, church, persecution, sadducees
The apostles are arrested for a second time but this one has a different reason behind it...jealousy. The Sadducees are jealous of what is happening through the apostles and they want to put an end to it even if it means killing them!

It's just one little lie...have you ever said those words? One lie cost Ananias and Sapphira their lives! It may not seem fair to us but God was showing the church that He is serious about sin and we should be as well!

caiaphas, guards, preach, religious, teach, temple
God used ordinary people for His purpose and with the evidence standing there, the religious leaders couldn't deny it. They told them not to preach or teach in the name of Jesus again but the apostles said they would rather obey God.

disciples, holy, jesus, pentecost, power, spirit
Around ten days had past since Jesus ascended to the Father and the disciples are doing what Jesus commanded them to do...waiting. They are waiting for the promise of the Comforter that Jesus talked about in John 14. Who are the "They"? Is it the 120 or the 12? We dive into some scripture to support the answer in this episode of GRINDIT as well as discuss a little about Pentecost.

instructions, pentecost, power, salvation, sermon
The Holy Spirit falls on the apostles and it causes a great commotion. A crowd gathers and they think the apostles are drunk. So Peter stands up and we see the display of the power of the Holy Spirit as Peter quotes, with great confidence, the prophet Joel as well as some Psalms as he preaches the very first sermon given by the Spirit. It convicts many of the Jews that were present and they are obedient to the instructions given. What instructions and why do we want to argue about them? Why not just do what he says?

ascend, heaven, holy, kingdom, power, promise, spirit
Jesus has died on the cross, was buried for three days, and came out of the tomb alive...just like he said he would do. He shows himself to his disciples several times in a forty day period to prove to them he is really alive and he wants them to try and grasp the concept of the kingdom. After those forty days were over he is talking with them on the Mount of Olives and he starts ascending into heaven! He gave hem a commandment before he left, "Wait...Wait for the promise of my Father and when the promise comes you will be my witnesses." The transition of power has taken place. The kingdom is now in the hands of the disciples!

disciples, fish, grill, jesus, shore, voice
Jesus said, “My sheep hear my voice, they know me, and they follow me.” If that’s the case, then why did some of his closest followers not know who he was after the resurrection? They heard Jesus speak from the shore but they didn’t know who he was and this happened not once but twice! I discuss it in this episode of the GRINDIT Podcast. The answer is something we all need to hear so share with your family and friends…

Thomas wasn't there when Jesus appeared to the disciples the first time. He wouldn't believe their story and thought it was "fake" news. He wanted to see Jesus for himself and eight days later, he got just what he wanted!
