    God’s in the business of setting captives free. Throughout the Bible He's freeing prisoners. In Acts 12 we see God answer intense prayer to free Peter from Herod's clutches. He's a chain-breaker!

     | 1,605 views

    In this sermon on Acts 12 and Peter's miraculous escape from prison, we wrestle with the truth that God is in control. This leads to a lot of assurance, but it also leads to trust.

    Introduction: A. You have probably heard the glib saying, “Every cloud has a silver lining.” 1. Although it is true that suffering can lead to blessing, it is easier to say it than experience it. B. One day a young man who sold magazine subscriptions door to door, came home with $25 which he ...read more

  • Detained, But Not Defeated Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Apr 9, 2017
    based on 1 rating
     | 6,985 views

    With Peter in prison, the church prayed continually for his release. When God answered their prayers, they lacked faith to believe. We can overcome in Christ, but we must possess faith to believe the Lord will provide.

    Detained but not Defeated Acts 12: 1-16 Our text deals with an intense time for the early church. God was clearly at work, and the church was growing. Thousands had been saved by the grace of God and the church’s influence was spreading. Such growth created much concern for the religious ...read more

     | 21,673 views

    Do you believe in praying bold and wild prayers? Do you believe that if you asked God to do something "impossible" that He would? Frankly, the story in Acts 12 doesn't look like these folks believed that. Did God look down on them for their doubt?
