For Zimbabwe: Acts 18: 8 “Then Crispus, the ruler of the Synagogue, believed on the Lord with all his household. And many of the Corinthians, hearing, believed and were baptized.” is important. God will bring one Crispus and his household, and a million people will be saved. We need to have a passion for the poor. Christ had compassion on both Zaccheus and blind Bartemeus. One Zaccheus can help many Bartemeus’s. There is an unprecedented move of God in an ungodly setting – the marketplace
Acts 18:11 Who is them? Who did Paul teach the word of God to in the marketplace? Romans 8:19 “For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God”, Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God.”
Paul goes to Ephesus. He took business partners and set up a business in the Marketplace and school. In 2 years all of Asia heard the word of the Lord. Acts 19:10. God was performing extraordinary miracles by the hand of Paul…… Paul used handkerchiefs and aprons. When they touched people, they were healed. These were extraordinary miracles because they were marketplace miracles. NB: “Scatter the anointing on everything we do and send.” Release people into the marketplace to be the head and not the tail.
