[INSPIRED TO DO SO BY A SERMON BY PASTOR PATRICK WILLIAMS ON THAT DATE}
Dr. Robert Holt, MD investigates
BUT NOT AS YOU MIGHT SUPPOSE
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John but instead
CEPHUS [Peter], APOLLOS, PAUL and JESUS
OVER 4 1/2 YEARS LATER
On a Sabbath morning early in April 2022, Pastor Patrick Williams of the Asheville NC "Foster Memorial SDA Church" told his congregation that he was about to review the entire Bible book of ACTS of the APOSTLES in less than one hour. He said then that in his opinion the book was mis-named and he would have named it THE ACTS of THE HOLY SPIRIT.
He began his sermon, as does the Bible Book of ACTS, with the Story of the meeting in Jerusalem of the APOSTLES in an UPPER ROOM in which they all received the HOLY GHOST "with a sound like a mighty RUSHING WIND" and were able to "SPEAK IN OTHER TONGUES" . The Apostle SIMON PETER became the main speaker at this meeting after the others present quieted down and he could be heard clearly. So far as we can now tell, his entire SERMON is recorded Word for Word. Or at least LUKE, the narrator of this story, has given us modern readers what he thought we would need to know of what SIMON PETER preached about.
The Apostle PAUL was not at this meeting and indeed was not a believer in what SIMON PETER and those present were discussing and preaching about -- some of them at least in languages and "tongues" other than the ARAMAIC, GREEK and HEBREW that they were accustomed to use in their daily life, and shopping, and in their homes
Not very far in this review of ACTS of the APOSTLES, which Patrick would have named THE ACTS of THE HOLY SPIRIT he told us about a young person named SAUL of TARSUS, who "held or guarded the coats or outer garments of those who STONED STEPHEN, and not very long after this this same SAUL of TARSUS was CONVERTED on the ROAD TO DAMASCUS, where SAUL was traveling, perhaps on horse-back to arrest Christians and bring them cack to Jerusalem to be tried for HERESY by the Jewish Priests and elders at the Jerusalem Temple.
Now willing to teach and preach the GOSPEL he had formerly called HERESY, SAUL was directed to go to the home of A Christian TEACHER named ANANIAS who lived on the "Street called STRAIGHT." Ananias, an Essene who it turns out had been "Resurrected from the Dead" like Jesus after being CRUCIFIED, taught SAUL how to use the CRUCIFIXION and RESURRECTION from the DEAD of JESUS as the main basis for the NEW RELIGION that would later become known as CHRISTIANITY.
While SIMON PETER was preaching mostly in the Jerusalem area and perhaps did some more preaching in Galilee where he is described in John chapter 50 as catching many fishes [153 and yet the NET did not break] the newly converted SAUL of TARSUS changed his name to "PAUL" and took several MISSIONARY TRIPS or "TOURS " that become the subject of most of the later part of the Bible book of ACTS of the APOSTLES. PAUL'S LETTERS ["EPISTLES"] are used by both Catholics nand Protestants as the basis for most of their DOCTRINES.
He raised up major Christian Churches while taking these Trips and a SHIP-WRECK occurs on one of them. He was to make a "DEFENSE" of his actions and beliefs before the Emperor NERO in Rome on this trip, and was bitten by a POISONOUS VIPER [SNAKE] while placing sticks of firewood on a fire. Instead of falling over DEAD as the onlookers expected him to do, PAUL survived this SNAKE VENOM.
We are now in this present COVID 19 PANDEMIC discovering that SNAKE VENOM is also involved -- which allows me, BOB HOLT, MD to use this symbolically to predict that We current Christians, like PAUL [Saul of Tarsus] will survive our SNAKE VENOM from the CORONA VIRUS and also the MRNA VACCINES many of us have been injected with. Even REMDESIVIR, a main DRUG used to treat hospitalized patients who have been put on respirators is now known to contain
SNAKE VENOM PROTEINS!
OR THE MRNA SEQUENCES TO CAUSE US TO MAKE THEM!
