Just before the death of actor W.C. Fields, a friend visited Fields’ hospital room and was surprised to find him thumbing through a Bible. Asked what he was doing with a Bible, Fields replied, “I’m looking for loopholes.” I have news for you. There are no loopholes in the Bible. You come to God one way, and that is through Jesus Christ his Son. Anyone who says differently is a false teacher and an enemy of God.
In today’s lesson in Acts 13, we will see Jesus Christ on the attack against one of His enemies. Who will He be attacking? A false teacher who is using supernatural miracles to lead a Roman proconsul astray from true faith in Jesus Christ. In the process of studying this incident, we will learn a little about the means and dangers of provoking the Lord to wrath.
May God bless our study today,
