Keith Green - Oh Lord, You're Beautiful

I love the book of ACTS.....

Acts chapter 3, v 1-11:

1 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. And a certain man…..
lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

Who, seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, asked an alms, And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, “Look on us.”

And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.

Then Peter said,
“Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”

And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up:
and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.

And he……. leaping up…… stood….. and walked…..and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

And all the people saw him walking….. and praising God: And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.

And as the lame man which was healed, held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch…. that is called Solomon's............greatly wondering.

Acts 4 v 1-14

1 And as they spake unto the people…………..the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees,

came upon them..........being grieved that they taught the people, and preached,through Jesus, the resurrection from the dead.

And they grabbed hold of them....... and put them in jail unto the next day: for it was now eventide.

Howbeit many of them which heard "the word" believed;

And the number of the men was about five thousand.

And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,

And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.

And when they had set them....Peter and John.... in the midst, they asked, “By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?”

Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, “Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by Him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.

God is wonderful...
bless you...
