One Blood (Acts 17:22-31)Tommy Boring, February 5, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We live in a time that the word god is used as an adjective and not a noun. When we think about evangelism one has to know who they are that's to be evangelized to. One has to know the creator in order to know and understand God. One can't have it both ways, evolution versus creation. There are people that simply will not believe in God but it doesn't change that He is still God. Someone had to teach that God created everything that we know. Do you believe that God controls your breath? God has set our lives, boundaries that will not pass once that time expires. The only thing that we have control over is our belief in God. Nothing else created had a choice to believe in God. If you believe that Christ is the creator than you have some responsibilities. From the birth of Christ, God was creating a new way for the remission of sin. Acts 17:26 We came from one blood, Adam and Eve. This makes the yellow, black and white all one race, the human race. God can not be made into a stone, gold or a piece of silver, He is a spirit that must be worshipped in the spirit. God did not come to save what you see in the physical form. God came to save the spirit, the soul that is contained within the vessel of our bodies. We have coffins because when the flesh dies it must go back to the earth but the soul goes back to God for judgement. God commanded every person, everywhere to repent to Him because we are the offspring of God and He is right and we are wrong. This is the hardest thing for a human to do because our flesh doesn't want to bow down to a higher being. What is expected for today the present time is repentance of sin because there is a day come one of judgement where all will be required. If you reject Jesus Christ then you have made your choice of where you want to spend eternity. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of a living God. There is no other way to heaven than thru Jesus Christ.

22Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars' hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious. 23For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you. 24God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; 26And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; 27That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: 28For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. 29Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. 30And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: 31Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. (KJV)
