YE ARE MY WITNESSES
North Shore Christian Centre - Home Bible Study notes
Matthew 28:18-20 "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, ALL POWER IS GIVEN UNTO ME IN HEAVEN AND IN EARTH. GO YE THEREFORE AND TEACH ALL NATIONS BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY GHOST." (Which is Jesus)
THAT “ALL POWER” IS THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST! (Acts 1:8)
When we study the early church it is evident through the scriptures, and through history that the early church had power. The same power that Jesus had.
This study should encourage you that we not only have a mandate from heaven, but we have been given the authority and power to fulfill the mandate. Hallelujah!
Acts 17:6 "These that have turned the world upside down."
Luke 19:13 "OCCUPY TILL I COME!"

Hebrews 11:1-40 (read) - A GOOD EXAMPLE FOR US TODAY!
2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must ALL APPEAR before the JUDGMENT SEAT OF CHRIST; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Hebrews 12:1-2 WHEREFORE SEEING WE ALSO ARE COMPASSED ABOUT WITH SO GREAT A CLOUD OF WITNESSES, LET US LAY ASIDE EVERY WEIGHT, AND THE SIN WHICH DOTH SO EASILY BESET US, AND LET US RUN WITH PATIENCE THE RACE THAT IS SET BEFORE US,
LOOKING UNTO JESUS THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR FAITH; WHO FOR THE JOY THAT WAS SET BEFORE HIM ENDURED THE CROSS, DESPISING THE SHAME, AND IS SET DOWN AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE THRONE OF GOD.
1 Corinthians 15:34 Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.
1 Thessalonians 5:5-8 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
