That is changing how so we did not leave Dr. Tony Evans is once men learn to stand the Lord to do amazing things. He wants to give you a miracle for purpose.

This is the alternative with Dr. Tony Evans, author, speaker and pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the urban alternative today.driven says there's a lot more to lameness than the inability to walk especially for men who need to take a stand for their faith. Let's join him as he takes a fresh look at a familiar Bible story which blamed me in acts chapter 3 the description of the man is given in verse two, which held a number of things about this man. First of all told that he is laying trip, but with Tony was a cripple from his mother's womb was born.

He's been crippled stand on his own 2 feet and according to chapter 4 verse 22. The man is 40 years old. So for this man was not able to stand up on his own. He was from the mother's womb.

Now we don't know all of the sociological condition. Although we will but we do know we had to be poor because it was a big we don't know whether daddy was in the picture are not only the mother is mentioned but we do know it was born. He was not able to stand up so he was never able and that was a lifetime condition because is now 42nd thing about this man which all that is whole life depended upon what I did for because it says every day he was carried by the folk to be so we know nothing about him. He's a bag living on tips you want other people to put something in a scandal something in his job, something in his hat so we can have another day because we know we only got one.

He's a bag laying from his mother's will became stand up everybody gotta tell him the way wants to go next.

Living on tips with the church house everyday says he went to the gate called beautiful that was at the temple. So now Peter and John John are going at three clock in the afternoon to pray the appointment of second taking them so if you will go to the house of prayer into the temple to connect with the living and true God way they pass by the name. The story unfolds with John about the temple verse three asking to receive all that is begging for money. Peter and John walking in. The man says about change. Can you spare a dime or a dollar so I can make it another day in Bay John Nike bag everybody else just got a little something something to hold for 24 hours until tomorrow.

He came out in one more time passed by, along with John on him. According to verse four man bag to the dependent one look at us right now. So when the man is this now, according to verse five, you give them his attention, he pays attention to pay attention okay because why expecting to receive something from me. Maybe going to be some that don't clean maybe don't give me some maybe get some paper you say look at me.

So maybe Peter go do something. Something special for me outside of the chump change that I get from everybody else so he pays attention to receive some some balance got a birthday card and should not have expected. Some come out and that guy may have the nerve to write a right where happy birthday check it twice and got stuck and then you shake it you shake, pay attention, because you will give me some Peter said to him, not silver and gold you got you got to begin with W Tell me the bank is broke.

Not silver and gold. You asked me for money and save people and laymen. I think the money will solve the problem.

If I can make more money if I can get a better job, not Robert legitimately making money.

Nothing wrong with having a job that is productive.

Nothing wrong with that.

But when you lay and you might just turn left you that some things money can buy and sell so all I but Billy adds to it in verse six, but what I do have lunch last, but I have certain what money can buy too many men a plan for the wrong thing.

They're praying for better job that pray pray pray for notoriety. They're praying for the wrong thing that praying. When God wants to change the person can't change you and you only want stuff from God's stuff is okay as long as God is given stuff to the right person on this guy wanted to keep his lameness, God is not concerned with keeping our maintenance intact is concerned with changing our maintenance people.

So what Peter says is not something that is not what you asked for what I give you the names of my thing in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene wall in the name of Jesus Christ, the mad, serene stop anymore. I want you to get up and stand out on your own 2 feet.

I want to stop dependent on every body else to man up where you should stand up. I want you to stop being responsible. I want you. Be I would just want to give you what, so you can stay lay I want to give you leftovers so you can stay here responsible know I want to get back with you to move on your own 2 feet, but is not what you asked me about the name names matter because they would fit the reputation or the character of the person or place that is me. So when you look at something that has a name it's giving you something that has to do with the reputation or the character of the person or place that receives the main tell you why this matters in this context. In chapter 4 verse seven when they placed them in the center. They begin to inquire of Peter and John, by what power or what name have you done this so that telling the man walk.

The leaders want to know the phone and by what name did you intelligently remember. Well, no one will want to know that because the word name is associated with the word maybe they want to know what name to that you could tell this lame man now when you read in chapter 3, in the name of Jesus wall that were literally saying Jesus wall because the name was tied to the power associated with let me show you Peter's response in chapter 4. Peter response in verse 10 that would be no all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus the Nazarene, whom you crucified. God raised from the dead by this name. This man stands before you in good health.

Verse 12 and there is salvation in no one else, for there is no mother may have been that has been given among men whereby you must be say so when I tell the man wall tell Amanda wall by the name according to the power that belongs to Jesus Christ and Peter and John moved from time to action. Dr. Evans will tell us that part of the story when he continues her message just a moment. Stay with it. I'm standing here in Alaska.

Can't wait to be with more unforgettable Alaskan cruise, visit Tony Tony Evans.before we get back to today's message like to tell you about our current featured resource. It's Tony's powerful book kingdom men rising goes hand-in-hand with the talk we been listening to today. Far too many men have been weakened by the false definition of what it means to be a man coming from a culture that's at odds with God's biblical blueprint will kingdom men rising looks beyond phony stereotypes helping men understand who they were created to be and how they can rise up to the task and responsibilities.

God is given them. Get your own copy of this powerful book will send it to you is our gift when you help support Tony's work here on the air, and around the world by making a contribution to the ministry and as a special bonus will include all 12 lessons on both CD or digital download from his current series by the same name.

Get all the details it Tony before this limited time offer runs out. That's Tony or call 1-800-800-3222, I'll repeat the contact information for you after part two of today's lesson. Here's Tony all right to get up and will always get seven and seizing him, seizing him.

That means grabbing him seizes the graph so he suits the power of God sit there with his hands folded waiting for this man to be sent from no what this man ran into were two men who were not lame because they were walking who are willing to grab a man who could walk, didn't think you would ever walk but introducing the Jesus Christ and then grab him and make you walk. We got a generation of men here when somebody need to grab the problem is the open grab grab of them taken them in the wrong direction been spiritual meant godly myth kingdom and grabbing his cultural men crazy myth that's grab just pray this is grab him and will not let you stay with not going to let you stay in this ridiculous state so grab the good news about the man he allowed himself to be grant to us is that they grab you became grab a bowl there a lot of grab the bull men Algeria if they can only find a Peter and John grab a lot of folk Jesus name in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk the people in the New Testament back Jesus name this power in the name. The name can only be used by a person best connection with the Navy. Every man is to pursue a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

So when you use the name pop trying to change my life changed my to call on the name of Jesus and nothing happened. God was not connection like you can expect your appliance is not Peter says what I have I give to you because I'm so not to the name that he will allow me to piggyback on the so I can help another man who is laying himself open. It gets good because it says seizing him by his right hand he raised him up, and immediately his feet and his ankles were strengthened so that is a crippling problem that he was born with and use muscles for 40 so he's got a physical problem and a weakness in his limbs. But Jesus said in it says immediately you be without a 12 step program take years of counseling to get right. God came for lameness in a minute when God wants to show off whenever he wants to show how he will not do something progressively on the spot. You need to know you dealing with nothing yet God need he needs purpose and sometimes he will not let things slowly progress. He will let them stay in the state until you are ready for a supernatural infusion of his presence. This man is been 40, but it took him 42 be ready for this moment and that he was ready. God connected it with who you will a man, you better find some Peter and John who are praying men on their way into the temple that you stay in your name. You say what my father my mother.

I think the problem is you better find two men control their emotions don't have to concept every other word to make their point and let those men grab you. I let no woman tell me what you better find some men for getting you tell me what to do, so that you can no longer lameness because we know you may be any person that God wants to turn it around on the spot you want to know when God wants to move can move quickly and immediately because that's how much is of the risen Christ so it says his ankles were strengthened a supernatural infusion of verse eight with a he stood upright and began the walk. The man leaps up when the man leaps up. He entered the temple with them, walking and leaping and praising God is interested in going to the Bible Institute praying to God. Let me tell you what will ignite your prayer life. When God gives you a testimony. When God gives you a testimony. You don't need a program.

The man jumped up right where you are going I'm going to pray which is going to get my appraisal because when God moves in your life. You don't need to be cute anymore and sophisticated, when God has done this thing. You let it be know and I'm going to get around that change jobs going to want grabbing when this man showed up and I know the prayer meeting change because of what happened in chapter 4 is not talking by what is laying man's life transformed. Chapter 43. But many of those who believe in the number of the men came to be about 5000. No matter, Peter and John started ministering the one lame man yet say because when God gives you body out when God gives you a testimony he wants to get say transform the church service is coming to a friendly UK, so the man been saying you got your appraisal and you are not ashamed to be identified with Jesus Christ that you miss the purpose of the miracle he wants to give you a miracle, but he wants to give you a miracle for purpose of the good news is if you bought it yet, so as not to late God to make my program good news today if you want anybody if you just get your appraisal and stop being ashamed to name the name of Jesus Christ.

Somebody get my like follow Christ and get rid of my main are you ready to give up your lameness make the commitment.
