PASTORS OUTLINE

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE 120? 

September 6, 1998

At the time when Jesus walked on the earth, the land of Israel was under the iron occupation of the Roman Empire. The Sadducees, (a Jewish political party) cooperated with the Romans, while the Pharisees tolerated the Romans. A super right wing group called "Zealots" where constantly plotting to rebel and throw the Romans out. It was at this time and under these circumstances that Jesus was born in Bethlehem.

During the ministry time of Jesus, which lasted for about 3.5 years, some 30,000 persons followed him on a daily basis.  But only 120 stayed with Jesus.  John 6:59-71
The night that Jesus was arrested, even the 120 left him.  Matthew 26:55-56
At the cross five of them came back and stood with Jes: his mother Mary, his aunt, two other women, and the apostle John.  John 19:25-27

IT WAS THE RESURRECTION that broke the gloom and doom over the 120, and brought them great joy. Luke 24:1-53
Then the risen Christ walked with them for 40 days.  Acts 1: 1-3
Jesus gave them a GREAT PROMISE at his departure for heaven.  Acts 1: 4-11

The promise became a reality on the Day of Pentecost.  Acts 2:1-21

THE GOSPEL WAS BORN! Acts 2:32-47

KNOW THIS:

1.  The world is always in turmoil, or facing turmoil, or just coming out of turmoil! 
      Luke  21:8-18

2.  There are always going to be poor people on the earth. Deut.15:11; Matt.26:6-13

3. There will always be personal upheavals among people. John 16:33

4.  Jesus did not focus his ministry on how to drive the Romans out of the land, neither did he focus on feeding the poor, neither did he focus on all the sick people around Him.  Jesus did help the poor and he did heal the sick, but his focus was to provide ETERNAL SALVATION for all people of the earth.  John 3:16-18

5.  God transcends human events and wants to lift his people up to his level. 
      Isaiah 55:1-13

Jesus is calling us today to come and receive his eternal rest, so that we may do the will of God in our lives!   Matthew 11:28-30
