Testimony and Encouragement

A drug dealer with a pregnant girlfriend goes to jail, for stealing from Disneyland, and meets Jesus while there. Upon leaving jail he is introduced to the Bible teaching of Chuck Missler through the 66/40 radio show in Southern California.

Seven Letters to Seven Churches

by Dr. Chuck Missler

The Birth of the Church

And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Acts 2:1–4

The Church was birthed fifty days after Jesus Christ rose from the dead. On Pentecost, the Old Testament feast of Shavuot, the Holy Spirit both alighted and lit up the disciples that were gathered together. Men who had hidden in fear only 50 days before now spoke boldly, moved by the Holy Spirit. As the disciples declared in other tongues the works of God, crowds gathered. The once foot-mouthed Peter became the primary speaker, preaching to a Jerusalem filled with Jews in town for the feast, and Acts 2:41 tells that 3,000 souls were added to their number that day.

That was the beginning. During the next 50 years, the message of the Gospel spread throughout the Holy Land, Turkey, Greece, and Italy despite all opposition.
