Acts 19:28-32

28 When they heard this, they were furious and began shouting: “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians!” 29 Soon the whole city was in an uproar. The people seized Gaius and Aristarchus, Paul’s traveling companions from Macedonia, and all of them rushed into the theater together. 30 Paul wanted to appear before the crowd, but the disciples would not let him.31 Even some of the officials of the province, friends of Paul, sent him a message begging him not to venture into the theater.

32 The assembly was in confusion: Some were shouting one thing, some another. Most of the people did not even know why they were there.

One response to “Acts 19:28-32

  1. “Most of the people didn’t know why they were there”. They were confused. They did not have truth or understanding. This is a position of deception and the work of the deceiver. He used riot and chaos, emotion and greed to drive these people and create an environment where the truth was not welcome or taught.

    But his plans are so futile. He did not frustrate the plans of God. All those who will come to God will come to His Son, will hear His message, and will be drawn by grace. Satan seeks disorder for a season because he knows his plans and days are limited by the will of the father.
