#4~ THE APOSTLE BARTHOLOMEW 12-28-13

Today we'll continue our study to do with the Apostles; and today we'll bring a few thoughts about the apostle BARTHOLOMEW, also called Nathaniel.

Let me say once again here at the beginning of today's broadcast, that the 12 apostles were chosen by the Lord Jesus Himself, they would be the foundation of the Lords true Church, Jesus being the Chief Cornerstone, they were to preach His gospel, they also received power to heal all manner of diseases and afflictions, they even raised the dead.

~ Listen as I read Matt.10:1-8, and notice that His 12 is mentioned 3 times, indicating that only these 12 would be given these powers, listen.

>Matthew 10: 1-8 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.

2Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; 4Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.

5These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

6But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

7And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

8Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.

* Notice, in these verses we see "12", three times, so this leaves every body else out.--- when ever we see a "three" in the scriptures most of the time the Lord is involved.

---------

* I want to say something about verses 5-7 before we move on.

~Listen as I read them once again;

5These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:

6But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

7And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.

~The legitimate offer of the kingdom of Israel was being made by the rightful King Jesus, had Israel accepted her King, she would have had her long-awaited kingdom.

~ During His earthly ministry the Lord Jesus Christ was offering the Kingdom to the Jewish people, in accordance with the prophesies of the Old Testament.

~However, while the Kingdom was being offered to Israel, this did not rule out Gentiles.

„« Romans 15:8-9 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision [Jews] for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers: [patriarchs]

9And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.

----

>Matthew 15:21-28 we read of our Lord's ministry to the Canaanite woman and her daughter who was possessed by a demon. -- He was ministering to gentiles.
