Paul and Silas:
Just why were they whipped/flogged and chained/thrown into the lowest/darkest parts of prison?
I will restate fact “As we believe in God ALL things/situations work together for good in the lives of those who Love The LORD and are called according to His purpose.”
Are YOU called? How do YOU know?
Right quick we review the account of their flogging and imprisonment:
“These men are Jews and are throwing our city into an uproar by teaching customs unlawful for us Romans to accept or practice…”
Remember, The Son of God was arrested beaten and killed by the very same authorities for telling the TRUTH.
The arrest of Jesus was a pivotal event in Christianity recorded in the canonical gospels. Jesus, a preacher whom Christians believe to be the Son of God, was arrested by the Temple guards of the Sanhedrin in the Garden of Gethsemane.
Were they not blessed to be kept alive?
