Acts 24

And after five days Ananias the high priest descended with the elders, and with a certain orator named Tertullus, who informed the governor against Paul.

And when he was called forth, Tertullus began to accuse him, saying, Seeing that by thee we enjoy great quietness, and that very worthy deeds are done unto this nation by thy providence,

We accept it always, and in all places, most noble Felix, with all thankfulness.

Notwithstanding, that I be not further tedious unto thee, I pray thee that thou wouldest hear us of thy clemency a few words.

For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes:

Who also hath gone about to profane the temple: whom we took, and would have judged according to our law.

But the chief captain Lysias came upon us, and with great violence took him away out of our hands,

Commanding his accusers to come unto thee: by examining of whom thyself mayest take knowledge of all these things, whereof we accuse him.

And the Jews also assented, saying that these things were so.

10 Then Paul, after that the governor had beckoned unto him to speak, answered, Forasmuch as I know that thou hast been of many years a judge unto this nation, I do the more cheerfully answer for myself:

11 Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem for to worship.

12 And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city:

13 Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me.

14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:

15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

16 And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void to offence toward God, and toward men.

17 Now after many years I came to bring alms to my nation, and offerings.

18 Whereupon certain Jews from Asia found me purified in the temple, neither with multitude, nor with tumult.

19 Who ought to have been here before thee, and object, if they had ought against me.

20 Or else let these same here say, if they have found any evil doing in me, while I stood before the council,

21 Except it be for this one voice, that I cried standing among them, Touching the resurrection of the dead I am called in question by you this day.

22 And when Felix heard these things, having more perfect knowledge of that way, he deferred them, and said, When Lysias the chief captain shall come down, I will know the uttermost of your matter.

23 And he commanded a centurion to keep Paul, and to let him have liberty, and that he should forbid none of his acquaintance to minister or come unto him.

24 And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.

25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

26 He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him.

27 But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix’ room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.

  1. 25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee

    Although situations or some relationships may be convenient to some, it doesn’t mean it is good!!!

  2. Acts Chapter 24

    It was said by God that Paul would have a the ability to preach in Jerusalem and this is the start of that process. May this day be a blessing to all who read this knowing that God did not make you to be afraid in giving your testimony. Like Paul lived a life in Jesus in thought, word, and deed. May we also this day.

  3. 12And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city: 13Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me. 14But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:

    As we read this chapter, we find that Paul was being accused of wrong doing heresy and some other things that was suppose to be against the law and customs. I have found that when living a righteous life before God and men, they can accuse you but in the end they can not prove the accusations. Paul was able to look back at them and simply stated i confess that he believed all things in the law and in the prophets. There was no discounting the truth even in the presence of evil intentions.

    Remember when you live give Jesus you will be accused, lied on, persecuted for the name sake of Jesus. We will have to encounter things that we thought we would never have to deal with. The greatest attribute of these kind of trials, and that is simply the pleasure of watching the accusers trying to verify their false accusations. God will always take care of us in these situations just like he did for Paul. Remember we should not be afraid to face the enemy because the battle is not ours but his faith the Lord. Keep pushing forward and don’t look back but at the prize that is just within our reach in front of us.

    Live Give Jesus2!

  4. Acts 24:14,15 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets: And I have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

    2 Timothy 1:3 I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day;

    Embrace our scriptures, keep worshiping The one,only,living, and true God, the God of Israel;

  5. Verses 14-15 MSG “But I do freely admit this: In regard to the Way, which they malign as a dead-end street, I serve and worship the very same God served and worshiped by all our ancestors and embrace everything written in all our Scriptures. And I admit to living in hopeful anticipation that God will raise the dead, both the good and the bad. If that’s my crime, my accusers are just as guilty as I am.”

    Romans 15:7-13 MSG says “So reach out and welcome one another to God’s glory. Jesus did it; now you do it! Jesus, staying true to God’s purposes, reached out in a special way to the Jewish insiders so that the old ancestral promises would come true for them. As a result, the non-Jewish outsiders have been able to experience mercy and to show appreciation to God. Just think of all the Scriptures that will come true in what we do! For instance: Then I’ll join outsiders in a hymn-sing; I’ll sing to your name! And this one: Outsiders and insiders, rejoice together! And again: People of all nations, celebrate God! All colors and races, give hearty praise! And Isaiah’s word: There’s the root of our ancestor Jesse, breaking through the earth and growing tree tall, Tall enough for everyone everywhere to see and take hope! Oh! May the God of green hope fill you up with joy, fill you up with peace, so that your believing lives, filled with the life-giving energy of the Holy Spirit, will brim over with hope!” Let’s do it….speak it out and live in hopeful anticipation as we LIVE-GIVE JESUS².

  6. 24. And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.

    25. And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

    27. But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix’ room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.

    Don’t wait for a convenient time to serve God; that day will never come. The time to get right and serve God is now. The time to reach the lost is now. Even if God delays His return several more years, we are not guaranteed tomorrow – don’t take the chance!

  7. Acts 24:5

    For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes:

    If hate to hear what they say about you or me! In ministry it takes a servants heart and humility to do it… you can’t let the words of other people try to bring you down. You can try and be everyone’s friend and be out of the will of God, or you can be in the will of God and lose all the friends.

  8. Acts 24: 14-15 ( Paul’s Defense Before Felix)
    But this I confess into thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my father’s, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets.
    ( 15) And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead both of the just and unjust.
    Rom. 12: 11-12 Not slothful in business, fervent in sprit, serving the Lord.
    (12) Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing , diligently in prayer.
    Paul still told those unruly Jews there is still hope if they would just believe in word of the Lord.
    Some people just don’t believe.
    But there hope
    Being patient
    Believing
    Desires of the Lord
    Why wait come and find out at church and get your miracle.
    Jesus Jesus Jesus help us all.

    Then Paul, after that the governor had beckoned unto him to speak, answered, Forasmuch as I know that thou hast been of many years a judge unto this nation, I do the more cheerfully answer for myself:

    Notice how that after the very elegant fellow accused Paul that he didn’t snap at the man trying to defend himself. Paul was very wise in how he approached accusations. He also would break it down to the very basic point of what the real charge was, “the resurrection from the dead”. If we are to reach this world, we need the wisdom that Paul used as he was being accused.

  10. 14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:
    15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

    By definition heresy is one that goes against original religious doctrine or belief, basically it means that it’s someone who goes against the tradition of a particular set of beliefs. In hindsight, the founding fathers of the church were heretics because they went against the tradition and started a mass movement of believers. Paul doesn’t even deny it. He stated that he was innocent of the things they accused him but he did follow the way that they called heresy. Even though it has a slightly negative connotation, it just means that you go against the current of the natural flow of things. If you look throughout the Bible, you will see that’s how God’s people have been called to be in many aspects. From Abraham stepping out of his father’s land, to God appointing judges rather than Kings over his people until they requested to have a king to be like the other Nations, and many others. There’s nothing wrong with tradition as long as it is kept in the spirit and the principle that it was created it is when it becomes rigid and used to cast out others that it becomes an issue. The people of God must be flexible to the nature of God in all ways, not adhering to the things that man says that goes against the word of God but rather being able to stand firm in the gospel

  11. 14-16 “But this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they call a sect, so I worship the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Law and in the Prophets. ‭‭I have hope in God, which they themselves also accept, that there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust. This being so, I myself always strive to have a conscience without offense toward God and men.”
    ‭‭
    Never be ashamed or afraid to stand up for your belief in Gods Word. Always strive to live Jesus to give Jesus.

  12. Acts 24
    Message

    24-26 A few days later Felix and his wife, Drusilla, who was Jewish, sent for Paul and listened to him talk about a life of believing in Jesus Christ. As Paul continued to insist on right relations with God and his people, about a life of moral discipline and the coming Judgment, Felix felt things getting a little too close for comfort and dismissed him. “That’s enough for today. I’ll call you back when it’s convenient.”

    Paul continues reaching even though he is in trial.
    Felix according to historian was a man who waited from bribes from the people he was judging. Paul never waivers though he was kept two years . We must continue in our faith even when we feel we are pressed down from every side . God is a faithful God and we must know without a doubt He will stand with us when no one else does .
    I pray today for the people of God who are under attack that they will continue to spread the gospel in Jesus name.

  13. Live Jesus Give Jesus2. I love Pofw. We must be ready to talk the word and be a good example if we want to reach people. Stay ready so you dont have to get ready.

  14. 5 For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the Nazarenes:

    The key adjectives which are pestilent and sect.
    From pestilent, we can see that the Jewish leadership saw Paul and his Christian faith as a scourge against the status quo. The Jews had appearently allowed their faith to grow into a controling power and money maker, which can be seen today in some of the liberal churches that choose to please the congregation with a soft gospel. We must ensure that we can see beyond the the traditions of a denomination and examine its faith to see if it is supported by the Word.
    Characterization of a sect leads us to see that the Jews realized that they knew that this was a branching of of the Old Covenant. We learn that denominations stem from the same vine, but we need focus on how it is connected to the fundamentals to be an effective wittness when conducting out reach.

  15. EN nuestro tiempo tenemos que Ser firmes. En las acusaciones al testificar hacia nosotros cuando hablemos del Amor de DIOS y lo que el a Hecho por nosotros con tenacidad debemos continuar adelante como ellos.

  16. “Then Paul, after that the governor had beckoned unto him to speak, answered, Forasmuch as I know that thou hast been of many years a judge unto this nation, I do the more cheerfully answer for myself:”
    ‭‭Acts‬ ‭24:10‬ ‭KJV

    Despite all of the accusations coming against Paul or who even turned his back on him, Paul stood for the truth, the gospel of Jesus Christ.
    Paul a threat to the enemy and of the world. Paul being a ‘pestilence’ the dictionary says that the word pestilence is a virulent epidemic disease- plague.
    Well The ‘corona virus’ tried to destroy America by death, fear, and our rights. As a church let us be like Paul a pestilence to our region/nation. Let us speak boldly as we preach the gospel.

  17. Acts of the Apostles 24:14
    But I admit that I follow the Way, which they call a cult. I worship the God of our ancestors, and I firmly believe the Jewish law and everything written in the prophets.

    Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life

  18. 25 and as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance
    And judgement to come, Felix trebled and answer
    Go the way for this time, when I have a convenient season
    I will call for the.
    ——-
    😩!!!! Wow! Everything was going good, until…..
    And that’s when things get slippery …
    people hear the gospel and receive it ( most people..)
    But once the conversation about salvation stretches
    And more truth is expose.. some takes it, others reject it.
    .
    Now is the time for salvation!!!!
    Not later, not tomorrow.
    Lord have mercy🙏

  19. “A few days later Felix came back with his wife, Drusilla, who was Jewish. Sending for Paul, they listened as he told them about faith in Christ Jesus.

    He also hoped that Paul would bribe him, so he sent for him quite often and talked with him.”
    ‭‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭24:24, 26‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Don’t worry about the intentions of others, just be a vessel for God to use. Paul used his time with Felix and Drusilla talking about God, not his freedom. He was selfless in this moment and I pray we learn from his example.

  20. Acts 24:14-16 (MSG)
    14) But I do freely admit this: In regard to the Way, which they malign as a dead-end street, I serve and worship the very same God served and worshiped by all our ancestors and embrace everything written in all our Scriptures.
    15) And I admit to living in hopeful anticipation that God will raise the dead, both the good and the bad. If that’s a crime, my accusers are just as guilty as I am.
    16) Believe me, I do my level best to keep a clear conscience before God and my neighbors in everything I do.

    “Do Your Level Best”
    Everyday, in everything we do (talking, walking, living), we need to “Do Our Level Best” (try as hard as we can and do our very best) to keep a clear conscience before God and our neighbors (family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc…).
    BECAUSE, there is coming a day when God will raise the dead; and we will stand before God and the books and the book of life will be opened; and we will be judged out of those things which are written in the books, according to our works (Rev. 3:12).

    So everyday “Do Your Level Best” to keep a clear conscience before God and your neighbors.

  21. The Real Cause
    14-16
    Paul is hated because of his commitment to Jesus even though his faith is in total agreement with the teachings of the O.T. which both groups honor in common.
    If you or being persecuted for your commitment to Jesus rather than for doing wrong. A clear conscience is a basis for confidence when you are under attack

  22. LIVE – GIVE JESUS2
    PATIENCE

    27 But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix’ room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.

    The integrity of the apostolic preacher is on trial. The apostle Paul is obviously on a mission from GOD. His Foundation is his FAITH in GOD and his own personal testimony.

    The evidence here reveals that Paul could have “bailed himself out of jail” but rather chose to have PATIENCE and see what GOD will do. How often do we “bail ourselves out of the hand of GOD”?

    Hebrews 6:12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

    Through PATIENCE we inherit promises.

    Paul chose to remain faithful and committed to his belief in GOD than be bailed out and not inherit his promise. We are wise to be prayerful about what we get bailed out of, as well we are wise to be prayerful about what we bail others out of.

  23. 24 And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.

    25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

    26 He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him.

    27 But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix’ room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.

    Those that put off salvation because it is not “convenient” sometimes never find that convenient season for another chance. Salvation is a choice for all to make. God will not force anyone to do something they don’t want to do. And some people will not like it that the gospel is shared with them and it brings knowledge to them of the choice they need to make. So we can’t be surprised if people ignore or dislike us after we share the gospel. Our duty is to share the gospel. How they react and what they do with that knowledge afterwards is between them and Jesus. We can stand before the Lord free of guilt if we have done our part.

  24. Acts 24

    11 Because that thou mayest understand, that there are yet but twelve days since I went up to Jerusalem for to wordhip.

    12 And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city:

    13 Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me.

    Paul kept preaching and spreading the truth of our Lord Jesus Christ, no matter what obstacles he came accross. He received strength through Jesus and kept pursuing others to show them all about Jesus. We should follow this example. Jesus will help us as well in todays world. Be stronger than the enemy, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Phillippians 4:13 NKJV
    Thank you Jesus for this day.

  25. 24 And after certain days, when Felix came with his wife Drusilla, which was a Jewess, he sent for Paul, and heard him concerning the faith in Christ.
    25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

    Felix heard so much of God’s word and had understanding because it says he trembled, yet it was not convenient for him to repent of his sins and receive the Holy Ghost! His wife was Jewish and I wonder if she understood-but regardless, it does not tell us whether these 2 ever came and were saved. Everyone today must make this same decision – make time and be saved or be too busy to be saved. Help me Lord to center you in my everyday life and be ready to give the word to anyone you bring my way.

  26. “After two years went by in this way, Felix was succeeded by Porcius Festus. And because Felix wanted to gain favor with the Jewish people, he left Paul in prison.”
    ‭‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭24:27‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Our focus should be on pleasing the Lord not man. It doesn’t matter who we please if it doesn’t please God. The only thing that’s going to last is what we do for Christ. It’s the best investment we could make.

    “Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.”
    ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭1:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  27. 26 He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him.

    Money the answer of many things, paul’s future would’ve been different if he had money wow!

    A.L.M.A.S.

  28. 10The governor then motioned for Paul to speak. Paul said, “I know, sir, that you have been a judge of Jewish affairs for many years, so I gladly present my defense before you.

    Always be ready to defend yourself when the enemy appears. No matter who it is, be firm in your belief about Jesus. Don’t show weakness, or the enemy will pounce on you. Pray, and know God is with you.

  29. 12 And they neither found me in the temple disputing with any man, neither raising up the people, neither in the synagogues, nor in the city:
    13 Neither can they prove the things whereof they now accuse me.
    14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:

    Satan will always try to to bring down Christianity and the word of God. While Paul was in jail he testified to Felix and his wife about Faith in Christ.

  30. 25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

    A convenient season will never come. Either we live a holy and righteous lifestyle now or live an eternity in the inconvenient place of hell.

    I choose to serve the Lord!

  31. 14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:

    Do we believe what we read? This Word is alive and well. It has power. It is like fire. If we are honest with ourselves, we would say that we have struggled to believe some of the truths written in this word. We find examples of how the Lord asks us to simply believe. At times, people put more faith of a “prophecy” or promise they get from man being used under the anointing, than the unchanging forever settled in eternity, Word of God. We must remember that this word was there from the beginning.

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
    John 1:1‭, ‬3 KJV

    Without the word there was nothing made. God spoke and it was. It is a voice activated world. Or we could out it this way, it is a Word activated Kingdom. We must believe the word of God. What is written, the law and the prophets, the promises and principles, the commands, and receive the blessings written down for all eternity for whosoever will. Whosoever will run and take off with believing this Word. Anything is possible to him than believes.

  32. 25 And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.

    26 He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him.

  33. “But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets: And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.”
    ‭‭Acts‬ ‭24:14-15‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Don’t forget silent when people try and come against you and your church or what you are doing for the kingdom of god. Never be afraid to stand up for what is right in the kingdom of god. Paul could have allowed them to continue to talk bad about him and what he was doing for the kingdom of god but he did not. He spoke with grace. It is okay to speak up just always make sure you remain in the will of god when you do so.

  34. 2 And when he was called forth, Tertullus began to accuse him, saying, Seeing that by thee we enjoy great quietness, and that very worthy deeds are done unto this nation by thy providence,

    3 We accept it always, and in all places, most noble Felix, with all thankfulness.

    4 Notwithstanding, that I be not further tedious unto thee, I pray thee that thou wouldest hear us of thy clemency a few word.

    Flattery is an often-neglected sin, one that the Bible speaks about more often than one might think.

    Romans 16:18 Voice
    [18] These kinds of people are not truly serving our Lord Jesus the Anointed; they have devoted their lives to satisfying their own appetites. With smooth talking and a well-rehearsed blessing, they lead a lot of unsuspecting people down the wrong path.

  35. Paul may be in prison but he is free in Gods eyes! Paul is a man of God ready to pounce in n any opportunity God gives him!

  36. 27 But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix’ room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.

    When people want to please others it doesn’t matter if the road taken is wrong. We must be focused on pleasing God. Lay aside every weight and sin, so that you can do what God wants you to do. It should be our goal everyday to please the Lord.

  37. Ail is constantly going against the grain but his willingness to lead and follow is unmatched. God often takes who we are and transforms up through apostolic teaching.

  38. 15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

    Gods love for us is everlasting and will never fail! He loves us all as we should give Him back the love! I pray tonight that we are all loving Him with our whole heart!!!

  39. “As he reasoned with them about righteousness and self-control and the coming day of judgment, Felix became frightened. “Go away for now,” he replied. “When it is more convenient, I’ll call for you again.””
    ‭‭Acts of the Apostles‬ ‭24:25‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    You can’t push God away and bring him back into your life when you want something. God is someone who you commit your life to. God loves us all he brings us life everyday he gives us purpose, he give us peace and strength daily, God is the reason we are all here right now blessed. I pray tonight that we make a decision that we want God in our life daily, that we seek him first in everything, and serve him in all and obey his commands and word, remain faithful unto him always and give him praise,thanks unto him for all.

  40. 15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

    16 And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void to offence toward God, and toward men.

  41. 14 But this I confess unto thee, that after the way which they call heresy, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the law and in the prophets:
    15 And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust.

    What are we guilty of? Paul openly confesses to sharing the gospel, without shame. He wants the whole world to hear the truth of Jesus Christ. We would be wise to follow his passion!

  42. Sometimes we all have to suffer through things that we don’t think we should go through. In this case he was falsely imprisoned. There are many different trails that we all have to walk along. As long as we no that Jesus is there for us and he is guiding us then we will be all right. We have to keep Jesus first.

  43. As he reasoned with them about righteousness and self-control and the coming day of judgment, Felix became frightened. “Go away for now,” he replied. “When it is more convenient, I’ll call for you again.”
    Acts of the Apostles 24:25 NLT

    It’s hard for some people to swallow the fact that there will be a judgement day. Having to come to grips with answering for everything they’ve done. That’s WHY it’s so important for us teach repentance and confession of our sins. God is a Merciful and Forgiving God until we stand before Him at the white throne Judgement. Then He will be JUDGE. The Lord has not come back yet. We still have time to teach others about His Forgiveness and Grace!!
