THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES

CHAPTER 15
 

CIRCUMCISION BIBLE VERSE
 

          Itís a great day for some Daily Bread! Welcome back to our New Testament study of the book of Acts. Well, Paul just completed his first journey with Barnabas and Mark, and returned to Antioch. Hungry for a Daily Bread Crumb? Paulís first journey was from the years 46-48 A.D. Jesus was crucified and resurrected in 33 A.D., so that means that this was 13 years after Christ.

CIRCUMCISION BIBLE VERSE STUDY

CIRCUMCISION BIBLE VERSE LESSON WITH CIRCUMCISION BIBLE VERSE MESSAGE

          Paul was preaching before his first journey, as we learned, when he received his sight back, after Jesus blinded him for three days, he was with the disciples in Damascus for several days, and then immediately he preached in the synagogues that Jesus is the Son of God. In your own desire to spread the good news, be patient and remember that a lifetime isnít long enough to learn all there is to know, so donít be waiting to learn it all before you share it with others. In addition, the Holy Spirit certainly has the power to teach you in an instant if He so wills, but the best advice I can give you, is to savor each moment that youíre learning more and more about your Father and His kingdom. And ... Tell all those that you encounter.

          Another interesting thing to note, is that Luke shares with us, two chapters, about this journey that took two years. Youíve gotta know that more happened in those two years than the few short stories that Luke tells, but he certainly couldnít have written about each and every incident that happened. Now Iím positive that God keeps accurate records of the people who you introduce to Him, but just for your own testimony, or maybe even for others some day, you may want to keep a journal of your own walk with Christ. It may help another disciple in their spiritual growth as well.

          Okay then, on with our study. Now there were certain JEWISH men who came down from Judśa, who taught the brethren that unless youíre circumcised you canít be saved. This was a JEWISH custom done on the 8th day after the male child's birth. Paul and Barnabas were not teaching and preaching to the Jewish people but rather the Gentiles (non-Jewish people) and they had a big dispute with them about this, so they decided that Paul and Barnabas and certain others should go to Jerusalem and ask the apostles and elders about this matter. When they came to Jerusalem, they were greeted by the church, the apostles and the elders, and they told them about all the things that God had done through them for the GENTILES.

          Daily Bread Stick time ... So what we have here is Paul and Barnabas which are CHOSEN Shepherds of the Gentile people not agreeing with the Jewish custom and law of Circumcision being placed on their Gentile sheep.

          Then some people from a group of Pharisees who were believers in Jesus, said that it was necessary to circumcise them and to command them to keep the law of Moses. The apostles and elders discussed the matter and after a lot of debating, Peter stood up and said,
Men and brethren, you know that a long time ago God decided that the Gentiles should hear the word of the Gospel, and believe. And God, who knows the hearts, showed them, giving them the Holy Ghost, just like He did to us, and put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.
(Peter must have been remembering his vision.) Now why do you test God, wanting to put a burden on the neck of the disciples, that neither our fathers, nor we, were able to bear? But we believe that through the Grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, weíll be saved, just like them.

CIRCUMCISION BIBLE VERSE DISCUSSION WITH CIRCUMCISION BIBLE VERSE EXPLANATION

          Everyone remained silent and listened to Barnabas and Paul, telling about the miracles and wonders God had done among the Gentiles by them. When they finished, James spoke up, saying, Men and brethren, listen to me. God visited the Gentiles to take out of them a people for His name. And the messages of the prophets agree with this, as it is written,

Amos 9:11-12
After this I will return, and will build again the tabernacle of David, which is fallen down; and I will build again the ruins thereof, and I will set it up: That the residue of men might seek after the Lord, and all the Gentiles, upon whom my name is called, saith the Lord, who doeth all these things.

          James continued, God knows what He has done since the beginning of time, so my advice is that we donít burden the Gentiles that have turned to God, but that we write to them, that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication, and from things strangled, and from blood, because since the olden days, Moses law is preached in the synagogues of every city, every Sabbath day.

          The apostles and the elders with the whole church agreed to send men of their choosing to Antioch with Paul and Barnabus, namely Judas, known as Barsabas and Silas, who were chief men (leaders) among them. They wrote a letter that said;

          The apostles and elders and brethren send greetings to the brethren that are of the Gentiles in Antioch and Syria and Cilicia. Weíve heard that some people have troubled you, misleading your hearts saying that you must be circumcised and keep the law: to whom we gave no such commandment. In a united spirit, we send chosen men to you with our beloved Barnabas and Paul, who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. So we sent Judas and Silas, who will also tell you the same things by mouth. It seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to require no more burden than these necessary things, that you abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if you keep yourselves, youíll do well. Fare ye well.

CIRCUMCISION BIBLE VERSE INFORMATION WITH CIRCUMCISION BIBLE VERSE MEANING

          Let us UNDERSTAND this ... The apostles LEARNED that the Jewish customs and some of the JEWISH laws were NOT to be placed upon the Gentiles. As well they should not be and that is why it is said that the Holy Spirit directed this ... It seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to require no more burden than these necessary things, that you abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if you keep yourselves, youíll do well. So many Christian leaders today prefer to teach LAW when our Father is obviously teaching us His GRACE. If these Religious teachers are correct ... The sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross is made of no effect.

          In short if you are not Jewish ... YOU are a GENTILE. You are not BOUND to JEWISH customs. You are bound under the NEW COVENANT (New Testament) not the old as our Father said He has broken the Old Covenant (Zechariah 11:10-13) The Old Covenant ended when Jesus died for our sins. The NEW COVENANT then began. So many fail to see this TRUTH and prefer to teach LAW instead of God's LOVE and GRACE. Read this ... GRACE.

HERE IS THE TRUTH ...
 

Galatians 2:21
I do not frustrate the Grace of God:
 For if righteousness comes by the LAW ... Then Christ is dead in vain.
Ephesians 2:8-9
For
by Grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.


 
         Now, back to our study ... They left Jerusalem and went to Antioch, and when they gathered the people together, they read the epistle (letter). When the people heard it, they rejoiced in relief. Judas and Silas, being prophets also themselves, advised the people with many words, and strengthened them. After they spent some time there, they were let go in peace from the brethren, to go back to the apostles, but Silas wanted to stay there still.

          Paul and Barnabas stayed in Antioch, teaching and preaching the word of the Lord, with many others also. Some days later, Paul said to Barnabas, Letís go and revisit the people in every city where weíve preached the word of the Lord and see how theyíre doing. Barnabas wanted to take Mark with them again, but Paul didnít think it was a good idea because Mark left them on their first trip in Pamphylia, and didnít finish the work. In fact, the contention between Paul and Barnabas was so strong over the Mark ordeal that they left separately from one another. Barnabas took Mark, and sailed to Cyprus, and Paul chose Silas being recommended by the brethren to the Grace of God, and went through Syria and Cilicia,  checking in on the churches he had started in each place.

          One year has passed since Paulís first journey now, as he and Silas embark on a new one. Weíll find out more about it, in our next Daily Bread, so come on back and join in for more of the Acts of the Apostles.
