Here at Home and the rest of the World.


There were 150 people in the Upper Room that received the baptism of the Holy Ghost some 2000 years ago. When the zealots caused so much trouble in Jerusalem, the Roman army marched into Israel to put down the rebellion. This caused the church to scatter to the world. It’s funny how people don’t like to do something hard unless there is a more difficult reason that will prompt us to. The church scatter to the world. Saul, the apostle Paul, had already traveled to Europe. James, the brother of John, had gone to Spain and returned when Herod killed him. Doubting Thomas went to India. When there is still a church in his name today. But most of the church nobody knows where they went or what happen to them. There is a real reason why. Because it wasn’t about the individual Christian. It was about spreading the gospel to the rest of the world. God knew where each person was and took care of each one. But it wasn’t about them. It was about Him, Jesus. Guess what happen to the world. It was turned upside down. With all the efforts the Romans put into finding and killing Christians, they couldn’t stop them from doing what God sent them to do. When the Romans would kill Christians in the arena in Rome, more people would join them from the stands. Eventually the Romans had to stop killing Christians in the arena. No man is a match to God and His efforts. When God’s plan is in play, all man can do is get out of the way. Jesus gave all disciples the commission. He said in Mark16:15-16 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.” Let’s hope that God doesn’t have to send an invading army to scatter us the world.
