Acts 3 
Acts 3 is going to show us the miracle of sermons to confirm the doctrine of healing that needs to be preached. We are going to see how the ground is broken up to where miracles are possible. A man born lame at birth and the impression it made upon in people-The scope of the sermon to bring people to the Lord by repenting of sins as they believed in the Lord.                                
Acts 3 King James Version (KJV)
Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. Peter and John were not fresh from receiving a special blessing as they have been filled with the Holy Spirit and able to see many signs and wonders done by Jesus and now the Apostles as the Spirit gave them direction. Peter seem to be the speaker many times and got himself into trouble and here he is with John who seemed to have loved the Lord the most as he rested his head on Jesus Shoulder. So Luke the Author here is describing what he saw from these brother in the Kingdom of God. I remember when we used to use the phrase Brothers and Sisters when we gathered at the Church or saw another Christian in town. Brother how are you a real kingship. A term used to denote a true friendship. Now remember it was Peter who denied the Lord and here John who loved the Lord the most is joining up with his friend Peter for ministry. Lord help us. To work together regardless of who we are, for we need to be joined together with Christ. For they have been to the temple worshiping and praising the Lord and where filled with reverence, worship building up their faith and hope in praying to God to obey His will. We need to catch the importance of spending time with God in prayer for His will. Do we have time to pray and worship together as a Church?
Today we need people that are interested in serving the Lord by drawing closer to the Lord as a group of believers so they can be endued with power from on High. We all have time and God gave us the Church to become a part of, so we can draw closer as a body to Him and one another to make a difference in our world.
And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; Here we see this lame man who was born without the ability to walk a cripple not by accident, but by birth. Here he is at this beautiful gate begging from all passing by for could work at making a living. So someone laid him by this gate where people came into and out of the Temple. It must have been a busy place for the Temple was very popular where devout good people came to worship the Lord. He knew our alms and Charity needed to go together. He no doubt knew who Peter and John where.
Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.Now remember they where just filled with the Holy Spirit so where ready to minister to whosoever wanted life abundantly.
And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us. Here both Peter and John stop to minister to this beggar by looking and asking in return you look on us. Should our eyes be upon the Lord so we can receive His compassion to care for ones needs.
And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. When we pay attention to the needs of people, we can begin to give what God has given us, when we are all prayed up we are ready for sharing our hope. We are living in a area of fear, doubt and distrust and need to listen to what is going on so we can give hope in a hopeless situation.

22 “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders, and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know— 23 Him, being delivered by the determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, you [f]have taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death; 24 whom God raised up, having [g]loosed the [h]pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it. It is a miracle and Peter wanted Israel to hear these words. He details the history of the life of Christ, who was approved by God and wants them to hear him. He became famous by miracles and wonders and signs of nature He was able to control. Stopping the wind, walking on water, raising from the dead those who died, giving hope to the helpless and much more works for God was with Him. It was you and your lawless hands, that crucified the Lord. Yet it was God that raised Him up out of the grave after being there for three days. This was finished He paid the price for all the sins of the world when people cry out to Him for forgiveness.
Note Psalms 16:8-11 It was not David who was a saint it was God Himself but David is here a type of Christ.
25 For David says concerning Him: It was all fulfilled in God
‘I foresaw the Lord always before my face,
For He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken. He saw his suffering would rebound abundantly to the honor of God. He is at my right hand, the hand must powerful that upholds and empowers so we are not removed by our lack of trusting the Lord.
26 Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad;
Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.

Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.Thank the Lord everything He did was with joy. Even when He was going through great sorrow at the cross. He knows the good that was going to be received by all who believe, and who spoke the truth in love. Is not our tongue our glory or our loss when we do not accept the way, truth and life that is found in trusting and obeying the Lord. To be able to rest in the vine allows us to automatically produce good will and peace to all! We should never feel separated from the body of Christ, but cling to Him. We need to make sure it is the Spirit, soul and body that is understood for the Spirit should be the guiding point or focus, of our lives,

The Crowd’s Response
And there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men, from every nation under heaven.Notice there where a lot of people gathered who were Old Testament believers from all parts of the known world. Some from eastern countries; Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and dwellers of Mesopotamia. Then the inhabitants of Cappadocia, Pontus from AsiaThe next came Phrygia, and Pamphylia. And Strangers of Rome, Egypt and parts of Libya around Cyrene and island of Crete and from the deserts of Arabia all Jews or proselytes to the Jews Religion. What a crowd gather to see the appearing of the Messiah according to Daniels weeks; Like 19:11 So they were zealous and devoted to Jerusalem in order to have an early share in the Kingdom of the Messiah.And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language. What a amazement to hear them speak in their language and not having learn there language. Talk about a wonderful miracle God gave to man as a witness to the tongues ability to be controlled by God. Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, “Look, are not all these who speak Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each in our own [c]language in which we were born? Parthians and Medes and Elamites, those dwelling in Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, 10 Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya adjoining Cyrene, visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, 11 Cretans and [d]Arabs—we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.” 12 
So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “Whatever could this mean?” God has a way of assuring His people they are special and the tongue was for a sign to those that do not believe. This wall of resistance was broken down by the tongue given over to the mind of the Lord Himself. It is amazing how every nation has people ion it that are Christians that are full of the Holy Spirit of God. People are in ecstasy, spell bound.
13 Others mocking said, “They are full of new wine.”New wine causing them to be drunk, because of celebrating the new Kings arrival. They are seen by some as fools in Israel that is out of control drunk with stupidity. 
Peter’s Sermon shows the first fruits of the Spirit of God. For he has been forgiven of his denying ever knowing the Lord so God is showing him to be restored to diviner favor.
14 But Peter, standing up with the elevenShowing he was not drunk but forgiven, he raised his voice and said to them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words. Peter was being his own self and took the authority to address the masses. It was the Jews he was addressing for they were the ones who killed the Lord. His master was gone and he needed to bring people back to reality for they were imagining the craziest things that needed to be seen as truth. 1For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only [e]the third hour of the day. What a shock to hear these men are not drunk for it is only 9 o clock in the morning and the Jews did not eat nor drink. Christian scholars never learn above the Bible; and the Spirit is given not to supersede the scriptures, but to enable us to understand and improve the Scriptures. Hal Linsey and other prophets do not add to the Bible they reveal what the Bible is suggesting so we see the imagination of the truth vividly as reality. Not then questing what God is doing around the world.

Acts 2  E-mail

When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all [a]with one accord in one place. Thank the Lord for the fact that Jesus death bought to us a new life, a life that was full of deliverances from evil deeds, miracle of seeing the dead come to life, seeing 1,000 of people feed with five loaves and two fish. Seeing the stormy winds cease. Walking on water, seeing people blind, able to see. Seeing Governmental power have to give way to Jesus love. Having the ability to rise from the grave as He had completed His mission to give new life to His followers who were hiding, not yet ministering to people but powerless. 
So here are people gathered together at the request of Jesus to celebrate the Passover from Bondage to liberty to a new dimension for remembering God is in control, regardless of how bad the bondages may be. It was 1,447 years ago God delivered the Hebrew people the Jews out of bondage. Here it is the first day of the week; a new day dawning to awaken us to work for the Kingdom of God. The people all needed to be sanctified, or bought back to reality for their imaginations where shot. Here He is risen from the dead and appears 40 days alive. He had a body yet the body was transfigured, purely and whole, but a spirit that is alive to quicken us to become alive for Christ at all times.  Lord may we be shocked to death by what You’re doing in our world today? Are we not living in a world that is bound by sins that are destroying civilizations and even right here in our Valley look at the results of sins lust for addictions of doing it my way, not Gods way. We are seeing people worship idols, 7drums, Mountains, White Buffalo, and other animals in our Reservation.
 Here the Disciples all had fled and were incapacitated soon to be set free to preach with the anointing of the Spirit of God, that was about to be revealed to them during this solemn feast where people where gathered in Jerusalem from all parts of the country and even proselytes from other countries, which made this a public event, or happening. It is so wonderful to know that God is never asleep for He is in control at all times. Here he had shown Himself after His Resurrection 40 days and is here giving life to the Church that is still affecting millions of people today.
Notice they were all with one accord, knowing something great was about to happen. It was the Temple at Jerusalem where they celebrated and now here in the upper room maybe even where Jesus celebrated His last supper with the Disciples just before His death He ate and had communion with the Disciples. Now they were going to experience a communion with the fire of the Holy Spirit, never seen before as the grace of God is given to enable us for service.. The old Testament said in Isaiah 2:3 New King James Version (NKJV)
Many people shall come and say,
“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
He will teach us His ways,
And we shall walk in His paths.”
For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.It was Jerusalem the capital of the governmental rule where all meet in a room to just seek the Lords favor, they loved the Lord and are here to show that love, sitting aside all doubts and instead looking forward to another miracle. God is about to usher in Grace in giving the gift of the Holy Spirit to move upon the waters of turbulence, to bring order with one accord as people came to honor the Lord that allowed them to be a blessing, regardless of the storms of life we find ourselves in. We are living in a time when we need to be full of the Spirit of God to know right from wrong, for we are seeing right wrong and wrong right This is causing a lot of dissention and people are confused. The Holy Spirit is needed to give us the assurance all is going to be ok for God is at the controls and knows how to reign us in. 
And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them [b]divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. Rushing might wind is seen, felt as well as heard and it filled the whole house. What a picture of a grand entry of the spirit of Gods love and mercy to show the Church His power.  The other manifestation of God spirit is Divided tongues as of fire setting upon each one of them. Remember in the Old Testament a cloud was over God giving of the Law on Mount Sinai, a Cloud hovered over them in the wilderness by day for forty years and a fire by night. A cloud covered the temple and a cloud received the Lord into heaven and here it is not a cloud but a might wind stirring a fire that gets more out of control so people can see the light of the truth of what God is allowing to happen. Remember He is in control?
Notice the word Suddenly not gradually as some wind come up. It was as a thunder clap to all alive and present. God’s way is in the whirlwind and the storms of life according to Nahum 1:3 He spoke to Job out of the whirlwind. God has a powerful influence in our world today as the Holy Spirit is being poured out on may. The Assemblies of God is part of the fastest growing movement in the history of Christianity. The Pentecostal have 35,000 people come to the Lord daily. Out of 2 Billion Christians in our world ¼ are Pentecostals. Evangelist Reinhard Boonke gave the Baton to Daniel Kolenda who has ministered to more people at one time than anyone else in the world. Will try to show you a clip on the video Trading my sorrows straight from Africa holygroundworship.com
This phoneme of sound filled the room where they were sitting. It was a awesome beginning for the Church. They witness cloven tongues, like as of fire!
What are cloven tongues?
Answer: When people hear of “cloven tongues,” they almost immediately think of Acts 2:3. As the Holy Spirit filled the 120 disciples in the upper room on the Day of Pentecost, “there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them” (KJV). Other translations refer to “divided tongues as of fire” (ESV) or “tongues as of fire distributing themselves” (NASB).

The word cloven means “divided” or “separated.” The picture is of something like a large fire appearing in the room then dividing into “tongues” that rested momentarily upon each person in the room. Luke is careful to say that this was not actual fire, only “what seemed to be . . . fire” (

The word cloven means “divided” or “separated.” The picture is of something like a large fire appearing in the room then dividing into “tongues” that rested momentarily upon each person in the room. Luke is careful to say that this was not actual fire, only “what seemed to be . . . fire” (Acts 2:3). The dividing of the “fire” into small, tongue-shaped flames signifies several things: John the Baptist’s prophecy of Jesus’ baptizing people “with the Holy Spirit and fire” was possibly being fulfilled (see Matthew 3:11), there is one Spirit who gives many gifts (see 1 Corinthians 12:11), there was a great variety of languages that the disciples were being enabled to speak (see Acts 2:6–11), and the disciples were being granted “fiery” eloquence to preach the gospel to all nations (see Acts 4:13).

Before His ascension, Jesus had told His disciples not to leave Jerusalem but to stay there and “wait for the gift my Father promised. . . . In a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit” (

Before His ascension, Jesus had told His disciples not to leave Jerusalem but to stay there and “wait for the gift my Father promised. . . . In a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit” (Acts 1:4–5). The gift of God came with an audible sign—the sound like a “rushing mighty wind” (Acts 2:2, KJV)—and with a visible sign—the “cloven tongues like as of fire” (verse 3, KJV). The Lord was true to His word, and the followers of Christ were changed forever. The presence of God Himself had come to indwell us, and the world was turned upside down (Acts 17:6).
The flame of a candle is sort of like a tongue. It is sharp and can burn or bring healing depending on who is in control us or God. 
John said at he Baptism of Jesus He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit with fire. Now it is happening just as the law was given to Moses at Mount Sinai. This was a fiery law, the Holy Spirit is a fiery experience that takes over the tongue in a way that bless the one receiving and those who hear the message. Ezekiel’s mission was confirmed by a vision of burning coal of fire on his lips. Acts 1:13. Isaiah’s by a coal of fire touching his lips Acts 6:7. The Spirit like fire, melts the heart, separates and burns up the dross, and kindles pious and devout affections in the soul. Just like the fire upon the altar, the spiritual sacrifices are offered up. This is the fire which Christ offered up for all to be a part of.

Never forget who you are!  E-mail

We just finished our Vacation Bible School with over 105 average. It was a joy to see Dales Church East Gate bring 15 youth to help with five of them being Dales Family and then why stayed an extra week to see the sites in Seattle and be with us here in Harrah. This is no excuse for not having more to present to all on our site but Here is a study that you can really benefit from and never forget who you are, were you are, and what your all about? We love you and pray the lords Blessing upon you. Jerral Campfield
1. Pride
Despite any help they received along the way, time and again, people take full credit for their accomplishments in the office, thinking that personal success will fast-track their career. 
The sin:“What often goes unrecognized is that people around, and especially below, the serially solo-successful resent the ego-centricity, and may actually begin to actively undermine that person’s efforts in the future.”
The salvation:“A dose of acknowledgment of and appreciation for one’s peers and subordinates, so they may share in some of the glory, can go a long way to foster one’s long-term success.” 
2. Envy
It’s OK to acknowledge other’s achievements, but lamenting “what should have been yours” can be destructive and adversely impact your own ability to focus on current job tasks, McKee says.
The sin:“Allowing yourself to be overly envious of others in the workplace can sabotage your self-esteem, which is one vital characteristic every successful business person shares.” 
The salvation:“Rather than being envious, let the accomplishments of others become motivational fuel for your fire in working toward your own successes.”
3. Anger
Anger doesn’t benefit anyone in the workplace – it only damages your reputation, credibility and professionalism. 
The sin:“Those prone to angry outbursts rarely get promoted; they are seen as being poor leaders who cannot inspire or motivate others.” 
The salvation:“It’s fine to feel passionately about your job or a project at hand and to disagree with others, but learn how to channel those emotions into actions that will work to your benefit in the eyes of others – especially your superiors - rather than against it.”
4. Greed
An employee’s selfish desire for “more, sooner” is what motivates many workers. While these folks may do well in the moment, they won’t be prepared to take things to the next level, McKee warns.
The sin:“Taking this notion to the extreme can and will be self-defeating as core values become misguided and life becomes unbalanced in the process.” 
The salvation:“The road to success requires a long-term approach in all aspects of one’s job duties. Those laser-focused on quick, short-term gains may do well in the moment, but will be ill-prepared to take things to the next level.”
5. Sloth
Indolence gets you nowhere in life – especially in corporate America. Laziness in the workplace will have you sitting idle, watching others surpass you in success and authority.
The sin:“Simply put, complacency and laziness have no place whatsoever in the workplace – especially for those with high aspirations. Expecting one’s past achievements and successes to carry them forward in their long-term career is imprudent.”
The salvation:“Treat every work day and every project as if your job, and your future at large, depends on it. It very well may.”
6. Gluttony
Too much focus on only one facet of life, like work, is a recipe for overall failure. Make sure you’re ready – professionally and personally – to take on new and bigger challenges, for which expectations are also bigger, McKee says.
The sin:“Many individuals move up the corporate ladder so fast that they actually end up failing as a consequence. More isn’t always better – especially if you’re not ready for the challenge at hand.”
The salvation:“Achieving career success also includes maintaining a life balance, and a misplaced professional desire can create a backlash both at home as well as amid peers for your perceived obsessiveness.”
7. Lust
The old adage, “the grass is always greener” applies to the workplace as well. Spending your time focused on others’ work achievements rather than working to further your own is a “sure-fire career killer,” according to McKee. 
The sin:“Spending an inordinate amount of time fixated on what you don’t have rather than what you do will foster a bad attitude and negative overall demeanor.”
The salvation:“One’s overall ‘presence’ in the office plays a big part in who gets promoted and who doesn’t. No matter how ambitious, it’s prudent to be ‘present’ and make the most out of your current position at this moment in time.”

Lord help us to understand the power of discipline that Lord has given to us all to use in order to achieve our potential! 

I feel blest in so many ways, for God wants us to continue to trust and obey Him regardless of what happens in our world that is out of order, as we have slipped into lawlessness. 

This lawlessness is going to lead us to the rapture.  I pray your going to be ready and in control of your anger at all times! Blessing to you and have a great day!
