“SEEN AND HEARD” [Acts 4:20]

“But Peter & John answered them, ‘Whether it’s right in the sight of God for us to listen to you rather than to God, you decide; for we are unable to stop speaking about what we have seen and heard.’” vs19-20

We must speak about what we have seen and heard. We are not here to preach the doctrines of men but of God, not the Devil but our Lord Jesus Christ, and whatever He says, goes.

1 The doctrine of the gospel is the truth of Christ: It is not a system invented by man but the whole counsel of God, as received from the Apostles [Acts 2:42]! It is not our favorite parts of Scripture, but it is Christ crucified in His fullness, from election and predestination to the general and effectual call. Are you preaching Christ’s system or men’s? Are you preaching what Christ says or what men say about Christ?

In my own preaching, I grew up in the Calvinistic scheme. I do not deny one truth, but I declare that it is not the whole truth, and men can believe all five points and perish. I’m interested in the gospel as it concerns God’s Son, not Calvin, who was not even a Calvinist. Men came behind him and developed the scheme: Calvin preached the whole counsel and was a 4-pointer at that!

2 The gospel talks about Jesus Christ in Scripture. Do you tell all men to come, or are you narrowing your appeals because no man can come [John 6:44]? Do you go out preaching with doubt? Would you be the most surprised person if someone believed? Do you have truth (half truth at that), but have no power of the Spirit? These are things that we must learn.

It is the Spirit that made Peter and John NEAR JESUS! Jesus was ascended on high to the right hand of God, but the Spirit made their testimony fresh and bold! We read, “When they observed the boldness of Peter and John and realized that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed and recognized that they had been with Jesus [Acts 4:13].” They were with Him in the gospel, declaring, “There is salvation is no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people, and we must be saved by it [vs12].” This boldness wasn’t human: It was not a matter of natural courage or extreme preparation; it was the gift of God, as He had promised, because Christ is exalted, and this is the Reason that we can minister too: It is not ourselves; it is the truth of the gospel taken hold of by the Spirit and revealed to us. Paul said things were revealed to him, so that he could minister them unto others, even the unsearchable riches of Christ [Eph 3:1-13].

3 If we want to understand the Bible, then we must bow to it! We cannot reason from our minds, hold to our errors, and limit ourselves by what others have said. We’ve got to get the truth, and the Holy Spirit must be our Teacher, or we cannot practice what we’ve seen. Pray for the Spirit of God. Pray for His truth to be revealed to you. He wrote the Scripture by men of old. He breathed into them what to say [2 Tim 3:16].

Finally, the gospel is for you, poor sinner! The power of life and the ability to overcome is yours through Christ Jesus. Only take it!
