Good News!

Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. “Do you understand what you are reading?” Philip asked. Acts 8:30

Do you have trouble understanding the Bible?  The disciple Philip came across and Ethiopian man who was reading the book of Isaiah, but didn’t fully understand it. The Holy Spirit led Philip to talk to the man and explain the scriptures were about the prophecy of Jesus Christ.

Do you ever feel led to talk to someone about Jesus? You’re probably being led by the Holy Spirit, there are many people out there searching and looking for answers about our Lord and Savior

“How can I,” he said, “unless someone explains it to me?” So he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. Acts 8:31

The man is looking for someone to explain the scriptures to him, and God led Philip right to him. How do you seek wisdom and knowledge of God? When you don’t understand the scriptures, who do you turn to? It’s important we turn to God for the answers and pray for the wisdom and guidance of the Holy Spirit, as he promised us.

Then Philip began with that very passage of Scripture and told him the good news about Jesus. Acts 8:35

Many people view the Bible in a negative light, but “The Good News” is exactly what it is. Regardless of the struggles and obstacles we may face, we always have hope and salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ! That is Good News and everybody needs to know about it. For everyone who calls upon

Yeshua (Jesus)our Messiah (Christ) shall be saved Amen!

    Hello brother! Keep writing these, please!
    I have a pearl to share with you about Acts 8:39 that I learned this year.
    The Greek word used to describe how the Holy Spirit snatched Philip away is “harpazo.” This is the vey same word used in Rev. 12:5 to describe the “male child snatched up to God and to His throne” and translated “caught up” in 1 Thess. 4:17: “After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.” This Greek word is translated “rapturo” in the Latin Vulgate, hence the English word “rapture.” Lastly, Paul used “harpazo” to describe being “caught up to paradise and hear[ing] inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell” in 2 Cor. 12:4.

    Very well written. I think that people who have problems understanding scripture might think about going to someone whom they trust and discussing/studying them with that person. Especially if they belong to a Christian church.
