Acts 16:16
Dr. Vines 1/18/87
We are pursuing our study now in Paul's second missionary journey. We
come tonight to the conversion of the young slave girl, and also the
conversion of the Philippian jailer.
On the journeys of the apostle Paul everywhere he went there was either
a riot or a revival. There was never any neutralities so far as Paul and his

variety of response that may be found. We are going to see tonight what takes
place in the conversion of this young lady and in the conversion of a man who
would be considered an absolutely, impossible case. There are no impossible
cases with Jesus Christ. The Bible says in the Old ...
