To the Ends of the Earth Come Over and Help Us!

As I said, we’re parachuting into a narrative here. Let’s back up. Let’s back up and find ourselves; let’s start with a familiar place first of all. Let’s start with the stoning of Stephen; the martyrdom of Stephen in Acts chapter 7. In the beginning of Acts chapter 8, there is the first general persecution against the church beginning in Jerusalem. And that persecution is engineered in part...

In fact, let me read, even though I’m not preaching this passage, let me read from Isaiah 55 where the prophet makes it so plain and so beautiful as the Word of the Lord. “For as the rain and the...
