    The Book of Acts can be accurately described as the Book of Up, Down and Out.

    Jesus ascended Up; the Holy Spirit came Down; and the Word went Out. The new church began by "adding" souls; and then went to "multiplying" souls; until the world was turned Up Side Down!

    Acts 2:41 - about 3000 souls believed and were added.
    Acts 4:4 - 5000 more were added.
    Acts 5:28 - Jerusalem was filled with the doctrine of Jesus!
    Acts 6:1 - Disciples were multiplied.
    Acts 7:1 - Multiplied greatly.
    Acts 8:4 - Disciples went everywhere preaching the Word.

    Acts 17:6 - Turned the world turned Up Side Down!

    Has our God gone out of business? No. The problem is not with our Lord but rather, the problem is with us!

    Go today and tell someone; anyone; everyone; about the saving power of Jesus.

    Lets turn our world Up Side Down for the cause of Jesus, beginning today.

    This is very true that the POWER of GOD was evident in the early church but keep in mind it was not the people turning the world upside down it was GOD himself doing it--ohhh that we might have the POWER of GOD working in this day as that one:) people are used as instruments by GOD--people are trying to do it today but the POWER of GOD is not with them for the most part--so therefore we have tons and tons of just false professions instead of true born again christians--but we are in the last days and the falling away from the truth world wide will get even worse bringing in the reign of antichrist and the end--but pray to God for a revival in YOUR part of the world :)
