MEMORY VERSE: “And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.” – 2 Kings 2:15 (scroll down for RCCG Sunday School 14 April 2019 HYMN)

BIBLE PASSAGE: Acts 9:1-9 KJV (RCCG Sunday School TEACHER’s Manual 14 April 2019)

1 And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,

2 And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.

3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:

4 And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?

5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.

7 And the men which journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice, but seeing no man.

8 And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus.

9 And he was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.

LESSON INTRODUCTION:

Generally speaking, a spiritual breakthrough is an experience of a new and unprecedented level of spiritual state/status. 2 Kings 2:11-15. In Christian circles, a spiritual breakthrough can be described as a time when a person is saved, gains a deeper understanding of biblical truth, receives answers to prayers, or wins over a besetting sin. John 8:32. The idea of a breakthrough suggests a preceding struggle that finally peaks and finds resolution. Acts 9:1-9.

TEXT REVIEW: ACTS 9:1-9 – “FROM NEGATIVE TO POSITIVE”

The Church experienced a great breakthrough in the conversion of Saul who later became Paul.

i. The Lord is a God of breakthrough and can change a “God’s adversary/sinner” to a “God chosen vessel”. Acts 9:15-16.

ii. A typical example of church spiritual breakthrough was an instance when a hardened soul is converted and now becomes a mighty instrument to preach the gospel where others could not reach.

Paul preached in many countries like Damascus, Cyprus, Ephesus, Antioch, etc. and carried the gospel to the highest authority like Agrippa, Caesar, Felix, Festus, etc. Acts 9:20-22.

iii. The Redeemed Christian Church of God experienced a great spiritual breakthrough when Pastor E.A. Adeboye assumed duty as the General Overseer and through this single divine catch, the local church with a few members now has presence in well over 180 nations of the world with millions of members.

iv. Spiritual breakthroughs could also take a form of miracles as Paul once lost his sight and recovered it not by medical consultation but by laying of hands. Acts 9:17-19.

v. Spiritual breakthrough occurs when the Lord shows himself in awesome manner to confound the wisdom and wiles of the prudent and the wicked. Acts 9:4-6.
