Philip explains the Bible to the Ethiopian Man

Penulis : A. James on Friday, October 1, 2010 | 10:31 AM

Does the name Philip ring a bell? It should there was a twelve disciple named Philip. but there was also another Philip mentioned in the Bible.

This man named Philip was telling the people of Samaria about Jesus when an angel spoke to him. The angel instructed Philip to go to the desert road that lead from Jerusalem to Gaza.

Philip obeyed and began the walk down the desert road. On this same road an Ethiopian man came riding in a chariot with a Bible scroll in his hands. He was trying to read it and figure out what the words meant. As the chariot came close to Philip he asked the man, "Do you understand what you are reading?"

The man did not and ask Philip to sit beside him in the chariot and tell him what the words meant. Philip explained about Jesus and how the man must ask Jesus to come into his heart if he wanted to go to Heaven. He also told him about baptizism and as he did the Ethiopian man said, "Look, there is water."

So, on the desert road Philip baptized the newly saved man and after he did Philip was immediately whisk away to a new place to teach. Was it magic? Or was it God?

In case you do not know God is all powerful. There is nothing too great or too small for him.

Find this true story in the book of Acts 8:4-6, 26-40 KJV
