When Demons Cause a Revival

Each week on Sunday, I have the privilege to teach an adult Sunday School class at our church and have been doing so since January 9, 2011.

I began teaching the class right after they had concluded Acts chapter 12, so, my time of instruction with them has been since Acts chapter 13 and after 7 1/2 months we are now at Acts 19:13-20, for another expository look at a passage of text.  Each expository study is intended to help the class learn and understand more in depth whatever important aspects there are that should be learned during each weekly study.

I know I've said this before, but there is no other way in which a person may learn and understand what the Bible says, than by hearing an exposition of Scripture, by listening to it explained to them, which has the affect of raising their worship to God because they have been taken deeper into the text, on a regular basis.

To learn what expository preaching is, please click here to listen to John MacArthur explain it.

This week, our class looked at a passage where certain individuals attempted to imitate what they had seen the Apostle Paul say and do, as they witnessed many unusual miracles that God did through him.  The demons however, had something very surprising to say to these imitators and unfortunately, they were met with a very unexpected result that humiliated and hurt them.

Those that had witnessed this were brought under a great conviction and decided to reject their aspirations to obtain power through mystical practices and instead magnified the Lord.  Such repentance and reverance that fell upon the whole city proved the power of the Word of God, to prevail in the lives of people that witness true spiritual power and authority.

The audio file is located on the Podcast tab of this blog, so please click on the tab and click on the media player, to listen to this class study session, an exposition of Acts 19:13-20 - When Demons Cause a Revival.

Faithfully in Christ,

Pastor Kurt
