Before David was anointed by the prophet Samuel to be the second King of Israel King Saul was told by Samuel that the Kingdom will be ripped out of his hands. This proclamation was rooted in Saul’s mind so he watched for the next anointed man to the be raised up by God. David was this man and Saul was taking note of God’s hand on him. Hearing the songs of praise about him and David changes everything in their relationship. The king David respects and honors becomes the man who wants to murder him. Join us today with my guest, Jim Pranger, as we find out why God regretted making and rejected Saul as King of Israel.

Did you know that the early church was shocked when they found out that gentiles could be saved? Their belief was that salvation was for the Jews and them only. In this message Pastor walks through the revelation to Peter and God’s plan to redeem both Jew and Gentile. You need to hear this message. Jesus told his disciples that their is another flock that He needs to bring in (John 10). The flock He was speaking to was a mystery to them and now it will be revealed in Acts 9-10. Jesus said this other flock will listen to Him also. Who is that flock Jesus spoke about? That flock is you and I – the Gentile believers.

In this message Pastor Caswell will examine the ministry of the Holy Spirit in Paul’s life. Through this message we will learn to listen and walk with the Spirit of God.

Jesus told His disciples that He has another flock that they know not of (John 10). Jesus said, “I must bring them in.” The flock that Jesus was speaking about is the gentile church. He was revealing His plan to redeem all of mankind, if they will listen, believe, and follow Him. At the time His disciples did not understand that the other flock was the gentile people. The Apostle Peter will receive this revelation in Acts 10. Today we will look at Jesus beginning to bring this other flock to Him. He will do it by redeeming Saul of Tarsus and commission him as His apostle to the gentile people and nations. Paul will stand before Kings and preach to gentiles everywhere. The people receive the message and follow Jesus of Nazareth. Another flock is birthed by the commission of Jesus through the ministry of Paul.
