This is an Acts 28 Site
When did the church of which Christ is head begin? Some teach that the church Paul discusses in Ephesians and Colossians is the same as that which is mentioned in 1Cor 12 and which began with the salvation of Paul or shortly thereafter. There are several positions that are followed in Christianity. The main positions are Acts 2, Mid-Acts (Acts 9 or 13) and Acts 28. To answer the question, you must study the context and message of Paul, Peter and others presented during that timeframe in scripture. This is no small matter for many inferences come from the decision you make. So, what saith the scripture?
The lesson on January 14, 2018 was part 6 of the "Mid-Acts or Acts 28" study. In this lesson, Wayne proceeds to explain how we will have errors multiplied when we try to place the church of the one body where Christ is head in Acts due to the fact that several mysteries were revealed in Acts but not the one that is in Ephesians because that was hid in God before the foundation of the world. If we try to put the church beginnng in Acts, you have the gifts of the spirit present with believers. You have promises that pertain to the land. You have Gentiles be a part of Abraham. After Acts, you have a new body. A new man that has a new hope and inheritance. The scripture reading was from Galatians 3:23-29 KJV
In this study, Wayne Stewart will look at the beginning of the church which we are a part of today. The Acts provides the history of Israel and Gentiles in how they had a relationship with Jesus Christ after his death, burial and resurrection. At what point in time did God give specific instructions to the Gentiles apart from Israel? This study will look at this question and help you understand the significance of finding out the answer.
If you are saved there would have been a time in your life when you trusted in the finished work of Christ on the cross at Calvary to save you from the consequence of sin. This simple act of faith marks the start of your Christian life and should not be under-rated. The preaching of the cross is of vital importance and so we must strive to present the gospel of salvation in clear and unequivocal terms.
