John Whitcomb: July 15, 2019

With host Wayne Shepherd, we welcome you to this week’s edition of “Encounter God’s Truth” from Whitcomb Ministries. We are currently in Volume One of a series called “Acts: Witness of the Early Church,” which was recorded live at Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, Connecticut. On this broadcast, Dr. Whitcomb begins to explain the significance of the very first message given during the age of the church—“The Pentecostal Sermon”—when the Apostle Peter spoke to the great crowd gathered in Jerusalem on the Day of Pentecost. As we go through Acts 2, we will consider the difficult issues involved in this passage, which is so often misunderstood. As we do, the basic clarity of Peter’s preaching will be evident—even as it was to the thousands of people who were there convicted of their need to believe in Christ. This message will inform and challenge you, and we trust that it will also motivate you to consider the many strategic opportunities that we have to serve the Lord in these “end times.”God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end! Thanks for listening to it this week on “Encounter God’s Truth.”
