In Acts 4, Peter and John healed the lame man sitting in front of the temple begging for money. Later, when Peter and John were talking to the people, the chief priests, the captain of the Temple police, and some of the Sadducees came over to them, very disturbed that Peter and John were claiming that Jesus had risen from the dead. They arrested them and since it was already evening, jailed them overnight. But many of the people who heard their message believed it, so that the number of believers now reached a new high of about five thousand men! The next day it happened that the Council of all the Jewish leaders was in session in Jerusalem. Annas the High Priest was there, and Caiaphas, John, Alexander, and others of the High Priest’s relatives. So the two disciples were brought in before them. “By what power, or by whose authority have you done this?” the Council demanded. Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Honorable leaders and elders of our nation, if you mean the good deed done to the cripple, and how he was healed, let me clearly state to you and to all the people of Israel that it was done in the name and power of Jesus from Nazareth, the Messiah, the man you crucified—but God raised back to life again. It is by his authority that this man stands here healed! FRIENDS, JESUS GAVE HIS DISCIPLES AUTHORITY TO HEAL THE SICK , CAST OUT DEMONS AND RAISE THE DEAD IN JESUS' NAME. PETER AND JOHN USED THE NAME OF JESUS AND THE MAN WAS HEALED! THE NAME OF JESUS HAS POWER! Mark 16:15-20 Jesus told his disciples, “You are to go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone, everywhere. Those who believe and are baptized will be saved.“And those who believe shall use my authority to cast out demons, and they shall speak new languages.?
