  • Acts 16 First Teaching about BAPTISM
    • Ken Sublett (Login Ken.Sublett)
      Posted Dec 2, 2017 12:29 PM

      Before giving one permission to pray and sing or recite a hymn we should note that Acts 26 has a series of things.

      First, rather than being in a synagogue these merchant ladies went out by the River to pray. Scripture says that if we want to find Jesus the twos and threes will have to go outside the city to REST and LEARN of me. LYDIA DIDN'T BELIEVE UNTIL PAUL PREACHED THE GOSPEL.

      Second, Paul defines the young girl with a spirit of divination which refute Apollon and HIS worship. He is the Leader of His musical worship team composed of bad girls who knew how to sing some songs that were NOT true.

      Then, we will look at whether you can sing or even pluck your harp if they cast YOU into prison where there will be wailing now called CCM.

      Acts 16:9 And a vision appeared to Paul in the night;
      .....There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying,
      .....Come over into Macedonia, and help us.
      Acts 16:10 And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia,
      .....assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to PREACH THE GOSPEL UNTO THEM
      Acts 16:11 Therefore loosing from Troas, we came with a straight course to Samothracia, and the next day to Neapolis;
      Acts 16:12 And from thence to Philippi, which is the chief city of that part of Macedonia, and a colony:
      .....and we were in that city abiding certain days.

      Acts 16:13 And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side,
      .....where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down,
      .....and SPAKE unto the women which resorted thither.

      Sabbath is the Greek:

      G2250. hemera, hay-mer´-ah; feminine (with 5610 implied) of a derivative of h∞mai hemai (to sit; akin to the base of 1476) meaning tame, i.e. gentle; day, i.e. (literally) the time space between dawn and dark, or the whole 24 hours (but several days were usually reckoned by the Jews as inclusive of the parts of both extremes); figuratively, a period (always defined more or less clearly by the context): — age, + alway, (mid-)day (by day, (-ly)), + for ever, judgment, (day) time, while, years.

      considered by the Romans to have been ordained as a fast-day.

      Acts 16:20 And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city,
      Acts 16:21 And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.

      4335. proseuch/ proseuche, pros-yoo-khay´; from 4336; prayer (worship); by implication, an oratory (chapel): — x pray earnestly, prayer.

      Acts 16:14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple,
      .....of the city of Thyatira [Turkey], which WORSHIPPED God, heard us:
      .....whose heart the Lord opened, [to HEAR THE GOSPEL]
      .....that she ATTENDED UNTO unto the things which were spoken of Paul.


      Matt. 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
      Matt. 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
      Matt. 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
      .....and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.


      Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.


      Acts 16:15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying,
      .....If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.

    ...........................THE BOOK

    What Happened at the Madison Church of Christ?

    There are thousands of churches being taken over across America.

    This book is only about one of those churches. It's about the Madison Church Of Christ. By studying the methods used here along with the resource references you might be able to inoculate your church. At the very least you will recognize the signs early on.

    Many of the current members of the Madison Church of Christ still don't know what happened.
    Some never will know! This book is for them as well.

    Madison Church of Christ was a 60 year old church. At one time it was one of the largest churches in the US, and the largest Church of Christ.

    It thrived for many years on the vision of it's elders and those of it's ministers. Those visions undoubtably came from the the inspired word of Jesus Christ.

    At sometime in the last 10 years there was a deliberate plan by a majority of the elders to take the Madison Church of Christ into a more worldly realm.

    They used secrecy, covert planning, and outside sources to scheme and to change the format and direction of the Madison Church of Christ.

    The Elders knew that the membership would never approve such a plan. Using the tools of the "Community Church Movement"(consultants, books, seminars, meetings,planters,seeders) they slowly started initiating change so it was never noticed by the members until it was too late.....

    At the heart of the plan was the fact that old members were going to be driven off so new techniques could be used to go out and reach the unchurched through new "Contemporary Holy Entertainment" methods developed by the "Community Church Movement"

    Old members had to be kept on board long enough to get their plans ready, or the funds would not be there to pay for the new building. So by the plans very nature, it had to be secret.

    The church had no plan in effect to renew or approve elders. There was never any need. The elders had always been "as approved by God". 10 of the last 15 elders would begin to shed some doubt on that.

    The Elders did not even need a majority at first, because some of the elders went along unwittingly.

    This edition starts shortly after some of the members begin to smell something strange in January 2001. Later editions may go back and fill in some of the timeline.

    To even start to understand whats happening here, you must read the background materials in the first of the book.

    This is only the first edition, and not the end. New editions will be printed as needed. To keep abreast of current changes, please visit our web site;

    Here is the list of players;

    5 Godly Elders
    10 Not so Godly Elders
    120 "Deacons" (allegiance unknown)
    2,800 - 4,000 church "members"
    2 "teners" (people who have publicly confessed to have broken all ten commandments)
    Unknown number of "sinners" (This is what the 10 elders call us.)
    Unknown number of "demons" (Flying everywhere, to many to count)
