2. Of all the religions on the earth one is real, approved by the Almighty.

3. How do we weed out the pretenders and the counterfeits?

4. If we want to know whether something is authorized, commended or approved by God we should look for an event. Something that happened in space and time that shows that God approves.

5. Tonight we’re going to show how God showed approved before the church and then we’re going to see how God placed His stamp of approval on the church of Christ.

2. After the tabernacle was built according to the pattern after the priests were anointed and dressed, after the sacrifice was laid out…

3. God’s glory appeared and fire devoured the sacrifice.

4. This was an event that could be looked to in later times to show God’s approval.

5. Aaron’s rod budded.

1) Num. 16 records the controversy over the priesthood by Korah, Dathan, and Abiram.

a. By destroying Korah, Dathan and Abiram.

b. By causing Aaron’s rod to bud, Num. 17:8. None of the other rods budded.


1. David had long desired to build a house for God but God did not allow, 1 Chr. 28:1-3.

3. Elijah steps in and challenges, “Call down fire.”

4. The effect of this would be to win back the people, show who was God, and who was fraud.

5. Is Jehovah God? Is Elijah His prophet?

6. Jehovah leaves no doubt, 1 Kings 18:36-38.


1. The argument is this, would God work miracles through a liar, a deceiver?

2. God worked miracles through Him proving Jesus’ words to be true.

4. John testified, John 20:30-31; 21:35.

5. Peter testified, Acts 2:22. Approved of God.
