Discussion for Acts 13

  • Paul
    How Many of us have witnessed for Christ under the possibility of our lives been taken in the act? I don't think very many- certainly not me. But if there was a possibility of that happening, like there was for Paul, honestly, how many of us would speak? And since there currently isn't, why arent we multiplying our efforts?

    Dear Insight777,
    The Lord said David was a man after His own heart; and He wants all of His sons and daughters to be after His own heart, in truth. That we were made in His own image and likeness has first to do with our character being like our Father in heaven. This is what Jesus came into the world to restore to men. David was anointed king of Israel for what kind of man God saw him to be.

    Bobbie, those that die believing in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior like David spirits goes straight to heaven but the body decay in the grave until the rapture or second coming of Jesus Christ. But Jesus Christ resurrected with his once mortal body glorified then ascended to heaven 40 days later as witnessed by the gospel of John and others. Praise God in the highest. Amen!
  • Bobbie
    I've just read Act when the apostle was talking about how David has passed away and how he saw his body being corrupted so if David didn't go to heaven why do everyone say that everyone who dies go to heaven when the Bible clearly states Jesus say no one goes to heaven except for the one who came down from heaven now I believe this with all my heart the why do people believe that in the church

    Mike, Jesus was resurrected with an immortal fleshly body, which he proved to the disciples by eating a piece of broiled fish. Thomas put his finger into Jesus' wounds and recognised that this was in fact, Jesus. The spiritual person of the Godhead is the Holy Spirit; the Comforter whom Jesus sent to teach, lead and guide us, his future disciples. Blessed Holy Trinity.
  • Mike
    Verse 34 shows that Jesus was resurrected with a spirit body that was imperishable.
