“There’s No Going Back for the Butterfly”
**Remember: The gateway to transformation is Holy Spirit
- Acts 2: 14-21…..38-39
14) “But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: 15) For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. 16) But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; 17) And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18) And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: 19) And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: 20) The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come. 21) And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved……….
38) Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39) For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
** The “Tease”
- Matthew 14:24-33 …24) But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary. 25) And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. 26) And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear. 27) But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28) And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29) And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. 30) But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. 31) And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? 32) And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased. 33) Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
THE APOSTLES (AND PETER) WERE CATERPILLARS DOING FLIP SIDE OF “TOUCH & GO”’
**Now…. Airborne butterflies not bound by 5 senses, anymore……
- Miracles –
Acts 5:12-16 …. 12) And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon’s porch. 13)And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them. 14) And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women). 15) Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. 16) There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.
- Prison Breaks –
Acts 5:17-20 ….17) Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation, 18) And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.19) But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said, 20) Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life
- Holy Boldness –
Acts 5:21-26 ….21) And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning, and taught. But the high priest came, and they that were with him, and called the council together, and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought. 22) But when the officers came, and found them not in the prison, they returned, and told, 23) Saying, The prison truly found we shut with all safety, and the keepers standing without before the doors: but when we had opened, we found no man within. 24) Now when the high priest and the captain of the temple and the chief priests heard these things, they doubted of them whereunto this would grow. 25) Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people. 26) Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned Act 5:21-26
**ARE WE BUTTERFLIES, YET? ARE WE RISING ABOVE OUR 5 SENSES?
- Jeremiah 33:1-3 ….1) Moreover the word of the Lord came unto Jeremiah the second time, while he was yet shut up in the court of the prison, saying, 2) Thus saith the Lord the maker thereof, the Lord that formed it, to establish it; the Lord is his name; 3) Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
