TRUTH FOR TODAY
Glenn E. Hawkins, Evangelist
IN THE NAME OF JESUS 
In the name of Jesus, people in New Testament times were healed of diseases, raised from the dead and had demons cast out. In Acts 3:6-9, Peter and John healed a lame man. “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk” (Acts 3:6). Paul cast out an evil spirit from a woman in Philippi in Acts 16:18 - “I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.”
Some mistakenly think that this can be done today. Yet the New Testament teaches that tongues, miracles, etc. passed away when the perfect came (the completed New Testament) – 1 Corinthians 13:8-10. [more next week]
