The Road to Emmaus Story
Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight.
32 And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?”
JESUS IS THERE WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW HE’S THERE.
SOMETIMES IT’S JESUS WHEN YOU DON’T KNOW IT’S JESUS.
The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turns it wherever he will.
The power of evangelism: I told a reporter that “If I had my dream place to bring the Gospel it would be the saloon scene in Star Wars.”
Peter Mayhew – Troy’s cousin Peter played Chewbacca in all the Star Wars movies. Troy landed a ticket to the premiere of one of the movies. Troy was seated in theater 7 of 12 theaters showing the premiere, so he was not with all the big name movie stars. He found himself sitting with the puppeteers – literally the men who ran the puppets in the original saloon scene from the very first Star Wars movie. Because of CGI animation, they were no longer needed. Despite this, Troy was blown away and told the men about this prophetic declaration. They were intrigued and stayed after to let Troy preach to them. Many got saved.
When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
And it will be in the last days, God says, I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, and your young men will see visions, and your elders will dream dreams.
