Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; AND WE CANNOT DENY IT. But that it spread no further among the people, LET US STRAITLY THREATEN THEM, that they speak henceforth to no man IN THIS NAME. And they called them, and commanded them NOT TO SPEAK at all NOR TEACH IN THE NAME OF JESUS. But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: FOR ALL MEN GLORIFIED GOD for that which was done. And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them. AND NOW, LORD, BEHOLD THEIR THREATENINGS: and grant unto thy servants, that with ALL BOLDNESS they may speak Thy Word, By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done BY THE NAME OF thy holy child JESUS. And when they had prayed, THE PLACE WAS SHAKEN where they were assembled together; AND they WERE all FILLED WITH THE HOLY GHOST, AND they SPAKE THE WORD of God WITH BOLDNESS. Acts 4:16-21, 23,29-31. To all you called to Preach Christ of the Inside Church AND of the Outside Church, these are your marching orders, TO PREACH CHRIST AND IN HIS NAME, CHANGE LIVES FROM LOST TO SAVED, with NO FEAR of what man, or this world, can do to you. How many laws, rules, and commands have come down from our government, military, and courts to tell you to NO LONGER PREACH OR TEACH CHRIST. Stop right there, read that again, did you notice that the Lord makes unbelievers use the words, "You shall not... IN JESUS NAME"? Even the unbelieving Authorities can't deny Christ without using the words, "In Jesus Name".  So Believers, go forth, Preach Christ IN JESUS NAME, and, Be Blessed.
