When the beast arrives he will have no such name by men! He will be the great man of efficiency and power....We as heavenly people have nothing to do with the beast or antichrist. They will not be revealed while we are here.

The book of the Acts is a divinely inspired record of the first 30 years of Christianity. It takes up the historical narrative where the four Gospels leave off (at the ascension of the Lord) and continues it from the coming of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost to Paul’s captivity in Rome, some 30 years later. Being supplementary to the Gospels and introductory to the Epistles, the book of the Acts documents the transition from Judaism to Christianity. As we turn the pages of the book, we see the Lord leading His Jewish saints out of the bondage of that legal system into the glorious liberty of Christianity, one step at a time. This transition is not something that the apostles invented after the Lord died (as some Jewish detractors say), but something that He taught His disciples when He was still on earth. In John 10, the Lord said that He was going to lead His “sheep” (Jewish believers) out of the “fold” of Judaism into a new thing which He called a “flock,” where “other sheep” (Gentile believers) would be added (John 10:1-16). We see this fulfilled in the book of the Acts. Besides documenting the transition from Judaism to Christianity, the book also illustrates many Christian principles taught in the epistles in real-life situations.

Jehoshaphat bowed his head with his face to the ground: and all Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem fell before the Lord, worshiping the Lord. And … he appointed singers unto the Lord, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the Lord; for His mercy endureth forever. And when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushments against the children of Ammon … which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. (2 Chron. 20:18,21-22)
Come, Thou fount of every blessing,
    Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
    Call for ceaseless songs of praise.

Growing in Grace
“A wholesome [gentle] tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness [crookedness] therein is a breach [break] in the spirit” (Proverbs 15:4).
The tree of life is mentioned a number of times in the Bible, and it is mentioned four times in the book of Proverbs. Here it is connected with gentleness when we speak. Why is this? It is because the tree of life is really a picture of the Lord Jesus, and when He spoke, it was with gentleness. Yes, He could speak very seriously to people when He needed to, and on at least one occasion he looked on the Jewish rulers with anger, but it was always with real love and care for them.
The second part of our verse today reminds us of something that is very important. When we speak, it is not only the words that we use that affect other people; it is the spirit in which we say something that is even more important. Those who have studied this subject tell us that when we speak, only 10% of the message comes from the actual words we say. About 40% of the message we give to others is the tone of voice we use, and the other 50% is the “body language” we use. What do we mean by body language? It is the look on our face, the way we hold our hands and arms, and even the way we use our legs and feet. All of these combine to give a message to the other person. We can give a peaceable message by our body language (a smile and a hug), or we can give an angry, threatening message (arms crossed, feet apart, face scowling!). We can make other people feel that we really love them, or we can give them the distinct feeling that “I don’t like you.”
To use gentleness and love in speaking to others is to be a “tree of life” — like the Lord Jesus. This does not mean that we never say anything to reach someone’s conscience. We do need to speak seriously to people sometimes, and to remind them of God’s claims. The Lord Jesus did this in Matthew 23, when he gave a strong rebuke to the scribes and Pharisees for being hypocrites. (A hypocrite is someone who pretends to be good, but then does bad things on the side, hoping no one will notice.) But He said these things in love, wanting them to repent and be saved.
Let us all remember that part of our message to others is the way we speak and look, nor just the words we say.

Take heed unto thyself. (1 Timothy 4:16)
Every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: but I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.1 – Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.2
They that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.3 – For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.4 – Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.5

Comfort of the Scriptures
“Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God” (Phil. 1:11).
It is clear from our text that “the fruits of righteousness ... are by Jesus Christ,” and by Him alone. He said, “I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abideth in Me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit; for without Me ye can do nothing.” There must be continued fellowship with Him, if we bear “the fruit of the Spirit [which] is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance.” And this delight in the Lord which brings fruitfulness in our lives comes from our delight in His Word. “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in His law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” For “blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh ... neither shall cease from yielding fruit.”
I would bear fruit for His glory;
I would walk with Him day by day;
I would always show forth His praise,
To those whom the Lord sends my way.
