Product Description

I like how the Message Bible says it, "Proverbs 3:5-6 (MSG) Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don't try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for GOD's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he's the one who will keep you on track.

 

"Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." Romans 12:2

 

The true principles for change begin and conclude with the LORD Jehovah and His Word.

 

The true essence of this text is all about people who wanted more out of life than what the current world had to offer.

 

The reality of their situations was that their worlds were already upside down.  They lived in a world that was overtaken by immorality, wickedness, depravity and sin.

 

Here comes two preachers of the Gospel proclaiming a new doctrine that would impact the social scene of the day.

 

Verse six tells us that after the message had been preached and taught in the synagogue many men and leading women were converted to Christianity.

 

As a result of this tensions grew with those who opposed the message and teachings of Paul concerning Jesus Christ and accused them of high treason saying that they were proclaiming another king over Caesar.

 

They direct accusation was that these men are turning the world upside down.  This was an unintended compliment because the world was already upside down and the message was turning the world right side up.

 

This text focuses on radical change in the world and the life of the people who accept this message of change.
