Awaken with Blake Lorenz

Aug 23, 2021

The book of Acts ends with a powerful message of hope for the world for both Jew and Gentile.  Pauls’ great faith in Jesus and his love for his fellow Jews shines forth as well as his desire to reach the Gentiles.

Paul tells the Jews he has come to Rome “for the hope of Israel I am bound with this chain.”  He proceeds to pour out his life to them, even though only a few will believe.

He then turns to the Gentiles in a prophetic gesture that tells us the age of the Gentiles has begun and we know it will last for the next 2000 years.  Now, that age is coming to an end as the Gospel again reaches the Jews and prepares the way for Jesus’ return.
