ST. PAUL SECOND MISSIONARY JOURNEY MAP OF ST. PAUL SECOND MISSIONARY JOURNEY ADVENTURES OF ST. PAUL SECOND MISSIONARY JOURNEY MINISTRY



          A very warm welcome back, and glad you could join us for today’s Daily Bread. Our study today takes us with Paul and Silas on Paul’s second journey of sharing the Gospel and the news of salvation through Christ to the Gentiles.

PAUL SECOND MISSIONARY JOURNEY STUDY ON PAUL SECOND MISSIONARY JOURNEY STORY AND PAUL SECOND MISSIONARY JOURNEY ADVENTURE WITH PAUL SECOND MISSIONARY JOURNEY MAP MESSAGE

          When they went to Derbe and Lystra, there was a disciple there named Timotheus, whose mother was a Jewess believer, but his father was a Greek man who was well respected by the brethren in Lystra and Iconium. Paul wanted Timotheus to go out with him to preach, and because of the Jewish people in that area, Timotheus was circumcised because everyone knew that his father was Greek. (So, think about this through the Jewish people’s eyes. You’ve been raised to disregard the Gentiles. You’ve got a half Jewish/half Gentile man, trying to convert you, and he doesn’t even follow the law of Moses, why would you believe anything he said? However, if the Jewish people saw that Timotheus followed the law of Moses, he’d be much more credible in the eyes of the Jewish people, and Paul, being chosen as an Apostle of the Gentiles, can apprentice Timotheus, and gain Jewish people for Christ.) So in order for Timotheus to be able to reach the Jewish peoples he came across, he was gonna have to follow the Jewish customs.

          As they went through the cities, they delivered the letters that were written by the Apostles and elders in Jerusalem of the decrees to keep. So the churches were established in the faith and increased in number, daily. You gotta imagine how Paul went abroad to many places and in each place those that believed became a sect and would gather to worship. This became a CHURCH. Paul would make his rounds as he was spreading the Word when he would pass one of the cites that established a Church cuz of his sharing of the Truth on an earlier journey, and would stop in and hang out with the brethren.

          They went throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the Word in Asia. (This is the area where the seven churches in Asia are, that are written about in Chapters 2 & 3 of the book of Revelation). After they came to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Holy Spirit didn’t allow them to, so they passed by Mysia, and went to Troas. Isn't that just so cool that they were warned about which cities they were NOT to enter by the Holy Spirit?

          In Troas, Paul had a vision one night. A man of Macedonia stood and asked him, Come over into Macedonia and help us. After he had seen the vision, they immediately set out to go into Macedonia, confidently perceiving that the Lord wanted them to preach the Gospel there.

PAUL SECOND MISSIONARY JOURNEY LESSON WITH PAUL SECOND MISSIONARY JOURNEY EXPLANATION

          I’ve got a couple of little Daily Bread Crumbs for you here. At this point in the book of Acts, Luke, our author, makes it clear that he was WITH Paul at this point, using the words we and us, in his descriptions when he did not before. So Luke is with Paul now. Also, Macedonia, which you’ll hear about many more times in the New Testament, is what is now modern day Greece.

          Well, they set sail and went directly to Samothracia (Samothrace is a Greek island in the Aegean Sea), and the next day they sailed to Neapolis. From there they went to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony (newly inhabited), and they stayed in that city for a while.

          On the Sabbath, they went outside the city by a riverside, where prayer was known to be made, and they sat down and talked to the women who were there. A certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, from the city of Thyatira, who worshipped God, heard them talk, and the Lord opened her heart and she understood the things that Paul spoke of. When she and her family were baptized, she asked them, If you have found me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house and stay there. And she insisted.

          Here’s another little Daily Bread Crumb! You often hear of purple in the Bible. This is referring to Tyrian purple, which comes from the area of Tyre in Lebanon. It is a crimson or purple dye obtained by the ancient Greeks and Romans from snails. The color purple was also used to represent imperial or regal power in those times. Most times, the term purple in the Bible is referring to cloth that was dyed with Tyrian purple.

          One day when they went to prayer, a slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met them, who brought her masters a lot of money by fortune telling. In other words the spirit within her would give her the ability to tell the future and her masters made money off that power. She followed Paul and his men saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, who show us the way of salvation. She did this for many days and being disturbed by it, Paul turned around and said to the spirit within her, I command you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And it came out in the same hour. When her masters saw that their hope of making money was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and took them into the marketplace to the rulers to be judged.

          They told the officials, These men, being Jews, greatly disrupt our city and teach customs that are against our law, being Romans. The people spoke against them and the officials tore their clothes, and commanded to beat them. After they were beaten, they threw them into prison, ordering the jailor to lock them up safely, so he put them into the inner prison and anchored their feet securely.

PAUL SECOND MISSIONARY JOURNEY INFORMATION WITH PAUL SECOND MISSIONARY JOURNEY MEANING

          At midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises to God, and the prisoners heard them. Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so strong that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's chains were loosed. The keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped and he would be put to death. But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Don’t harm yourself, we’re still here.

          He called for a light, and rushed in, trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, and brought them out, asking, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? They answered,
Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you and your family will be saved
. They spoke to him the Word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. He took them that same hour of the night, and washed their stripes (wounds from being whipped); and he was baptized, he and all his family, immediately.

          When he had brought them into his house, he prepared a meal for them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house. When it was day, the officials sent the sergeants, saying, Let those men go. The keeper of the prison said to Paul, The magistrates have ordered to let you go: so go now, and go in peace. But Paul said to them, They’ve beaten us openly without a trial, being Romans, and they threw us into prison; and now they want us to just leave quietly so nobody will know? No way, but let them come themselves and bring us out.

          We don't learn until Chapter 22 that Paul was born a Roman citizen. His dad, or some other ancestor had been granted Roman citizenship which was considered a great privilege and honor to most. In the reign of Claudius Caesar, Roman citizenship was bought and sold at a high price, then in later years it could be obtained for next to nothing ... But to make a false claim to being a Roman citizen was a serious crime.

          The sergeants told the magistrates: and they were afraid, when they heard that they were Romans. They came and got them, and brought them out, and asked them to leave the city. So, Paul and Silas went out of the prison, and went back to the house of Lydia: and when they had seen the brethren, they comforted them, and departed.

          Now, that was truly an adventurous time for Paul and Silas. You see, amazing things can happen when you’re just on your way to deliver a letter in the name of the Lord. More adventures are ahead, so be sure to come back and join us for more interesting stories, right here at your Daily Bread.
