The Kingdom Offered to Israel

Acts - Book of Transitions

(Acts 3:17-24). The passage we are looking at this morning is critical in understanding the nature of what the book of Acts records. The lame man that Peter and John healed at the temple was an illustration of the miserable, helpless spiritual condition of the nation of Israel. They had demonstrated this by denying and crucifying their promised Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, but Peter notes two things about this: 1) They had done so in ignorance, not knowing what they were doing, and 2) God had foretold that their Messiah (the Christ) must suffer and die, and this was now fulfilled. Peter then proceeds to offer to the nation that if they would repent (change their minds) and turn their hearts back to God, then He would restore their nation spiritually: their sins would be blotted out, times of refreshing and revival would come to them from the presence of the Lord, and He would send Jesus Christ back to earth to establish His kingdom.

From Series: "Acts - Book of Transitions"

The book of Acts is one of the most important books in the Bible, touching on many key doctrines that affect how we worship and serve the Lord. Yet, it is also one of the most misunderstood books of the Bible, an issue that has caused great division among believers. This series of lessons is a verse by verse study, from a dispensational perspective, through the book of Acts, a book that is marked by transition. These messages were preached by Pastor Gregg Bing at Grace Bible Church during the morning worship service in 2022-2023.
