THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD (1 of 2)
Jesse M. Hendley
Now friends, if you have your Bibles, I want you to
turn with me to Acts, chapter 17, and verse 24 through
31. Today we have a tremendous revelation of God and
what He is like. If yon want to know what God is like
(and you ought to know, because one day you are going
to meet Him), you have it here in this tremendous
chapter Acts 17:24 through 31.
The other day in a hotel room in distant city,

So we have here the Sovereignty of God. HE MADE THE
WORLD. Do you accept that? Do you believe there is a
Personal Being Who made this world and everything that
is in it? I do. I agree with Paul on that. I believe
