Scripture Reading: Romans 15:8

Many see Christ as the beginner of a new order when He appeared. John walked out of the wilderness after 400 silent years to announce that the Kingdom of Heaven was ready to be set up on this earth. Then Christ the King appeared as proof that God was indeed ready to establish Heaven on earth in keeping with all the promises to David of a throne, to Abraham of a progeny, and to others of
blessing to the whole earth through His people being the head and not the tail, by keeping the Commandments of God (Deuteronomy 28:10-13).

Our Lord appeared to announce God's being ready to set up the long-promised Heaven-on-earth ... nothing new here. Israel was rebellious and crucified the King ... nothing new here. They killed the Twelve after our Lord returned to Heaven, proving they did not want His rule over them ... nothing new here.

Paul appears in the middle of the Acts to announce he had been sent to the Nations (Gentiles) ... Something NEW here! Until Paul, God always had a door open to the non- Jew (Proselyte) ... the back door. Now God announces that the front door of heaven is open to Jew and non-Jew on the same basis. Guilty, hell-deserving sinners can now come by faith in the One who paid for their redemption.

Our Lord came to confirm centuries-old and valid promises, but the Acts records Israel's fall to where the non- Jew always was ... something NEW

How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
