Tell What Great Things God Has Done For Us Acts 18:24-28 Drew Dietz Reading these verses closely you will notice the following words as written under inspiration of God…”who (Apollos) when he was come (unto the church at Achaia), helped them much which believed through grace” (vs.27).

Acts 1: 1-5 What our Lord did in the forty days between the tomb and his ascension is what our Lord is doing right now.  His disciples were scattered but he gathered them to himself.  He showed them many proofs convincing them he is alive and well.  By the use of those who saw him [...]

As the doctrines of election and perseverance are comfortable

The Father Blesses the firstborn The purpose of God according to election is that his Son, Christ Jesus, be the Firstborn among many brethren (Romans 8: 28-34).

Job said, “I know that my redeemer liveth.” Which of the two words should be of greater importance — my redeemer?
