Rev. Paul J. Miller - Sermon Outline - October 3, 2021

"Where do we find God?" - Acts 7

STEPHEN'S SPEECH

Abraham to Jacob – Acts 7:2-8

  - Go to a new land

  - Establish a Covenant

Joseph to Moses – Acts 7:9-19

  - Rebellious brothers

  - Go to Egypt (earth’s greatest empire)

  - Rule Egypt

Moses to Joshua – Acts 7:20-44

  - Follow Moses out of Egypt (v35)

  - FOLLOW THE ONE GOD WILL SEND (v37)

 -  Follow the Law (“living words” v38)

  - At Mt. Sinai?

 -  Rebellion leads to exile

Joshua to David – Acts 7:45-46

  - In the Tabernacle?

David to Solomon – Acts 7:46-47

  - In the Temple?

Solomon to Isaiah – Acts 7:48-50

  - “However”, you won’t find God in tabernacles or temples (or church buildings)

  - Isaiah 66:1-2 (the closing statement to all of Isaiah’s prophecies)

Jesus to Eternity – Acts 7:54-60

  - The Sanhedrin was “furious” to once again   being accused of killing Jesus

  - WHAT DROVE THEM TO KILL STEPHEN WAS THE SAME WORDS THAT DROVE THEM TO KILL JESUS

  - Jesus, “son of Man” at the right hand of God   (Luke 22:66-71)

You cannot find God in land, in nations, in empires, in obeying rules, in a tabernacle, in a temple, in a sacrificial system, in a theological system, or in a church building.

You can only find God in the new and eternal temple, Jesus the Christ.

He is One God sent to us.

Only when you seek Him in faith will you find Him in your heart.

That’s where God lives.
