"IT'S ENOUGH, REPENT"
by Pastor Tony Sutton

Act 3:6 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.
Act 3:9 And all the people saw him walking and praising God:
Act 3:10 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.
Act 3:12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?
Act 3:13 The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go.
Act 3:14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you;
Act 3:15 And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.
         PETER AND JOHN HAD JUST HAD THE EXPERIENCE OF SHARING JESUS WITH A CRIPPLE MAN, AND A CROWD OF PEOPLE WITNESSED HIS HEALING. THEY MARVELED AT THE GREATNESS OF PETER AND JOHN, BUT PETER TOLD THEM IT WAS NOT HIM AND JOHN.
Mar 11:7 And they brought the colt to Jesus, and cast their garments on him; and he sat upon him.
Mar 11:8 And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way.
Mar 11:9 And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord:
Mar 11:10 Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.
           WE ARE LOOKING AT A PEOPLE, THAT CAN'T SEEM TO MAKE UP THEIR MIND. THEY WORSHIPED JESUS AS HE CAME THROUGH. THEY CRIED HOSANNA, UNTO THE LORD. THEY BLESSED THE LORD, WITH PRAISE.
Mar 15:13 And they cried out again, Crucify him.
Mar 15:14 Then Pilate said unto them, Why, what evil hath he done? And they cried out the more exceedingly, Crucify him.
Mar 15:15 And so Pilate, willing to content the people, released Barabbas unto them, and delivered Jesus, when he had scourged him, to be crucified.
        WE SEE THE SAME PEOPLE THAT CRIED HOSANNA, NOW CRYING "CRUCIFY HIM, CRUCIFY HIM" WHAT HAPPENS TO A PERSON THAT WOULD CAUSE THEM TO GO FROM PRAISING GOD, TO PERSECUTING HIM?
Act 3:17 And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers.
Act 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord.
        PETER SAID; I REALIZE THAT IT WAS THROUGH IGNORANCE THAT YOU DID, WHAT YOU DID. I ALSO KNOW THAT YOU DID AS YOUR LEADERS DID, BUT NOW IT'S TIME TO REPENT. YOU HAVE WANDERED FOR FAR TO LONG. NOT ONLY DO YOU NEED TO REPENT, BUT BE CONVERTED!
    JUST AS IN JESUS' DAY, PEOPLE ARE STILL "WISHY WASHY"
WE ARE PRAISING GOD ONE MOMENT AND FALLEN TO TEMPTATION THE NEXT. PEOPLE ARE UP TODAY AND DOWN TOMORROW. WE NEED TO GET SERIOUS ABOUT GOD! SO MANY HAVE GOT CONVICTION AND NOT CONVERSION. RELIGION WILL NOT GET YOU ANYWHERE, IT'S SALVATION THAT WILL TAKE YOU TO HEAVEN.

     Friend: Would you let us know if this sermon has led you to the Lord, inspired you to re-dedicate your life to the Lord, or simply been a Blessing unto you?
