Wesley's Notes for Acts 17:30

17:30 The times of ignorance - What! does he object ignorance to the knowing Athenians? Yes, and they acknowledge it by this very altar. God overlooked - As one paraphrases, The beams of his eye did in a manner shoot over it. He did not appear to take notice of them, by sending express messages to them as he did to the Jews. But now - This day, this hour, saith Paul, puts an end to the Divine forbearance, and brings either greater mercy or punishment. Now he commandeth all men every where to repent - There is a dignity and grandeur in this expression, becoming an ambassador from the King of heaven. And this universal demand of repentance declared universal guilt in the strongest manner, and admirably confronted the pride of the haughtiest Stoic of them all. At the same time it bore down the idle plea of fatality. For how could any one repent of doing what he could not but have done?

Elder Mawos's comment on 2014-11-07 08:28:16:

As much as this verse tells us that God has overlooked our wrongs before Christ was revealed to us, even unto people where the gospel is yet to reach He is doing the same.Even unto young kids who are not into understanding because of young age the same applies .The onus is unto the saved to spread the gospel .Otherwise the blood of these ignorant people will be on our hands by failing to heed the Great Commission of Christ .

REPENT FROM ANY DUMB IDOL! FEAR THE LORD!

Deuteronomy 4:15-16 Take ye therefore good heed unto yourselves; for ye saw no manner of similitude on the day that the LORD spake unto you in Horeb out of the midst of the fire: Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,

STATUES OR IMAGES OR ANYTHING WHICH IS INTENDED TO COMPARE THE APPEARANCE OF JESUS IS AN IDOL! (Jer 10:14-16, 16:20-21, Psalm 115:4-7).
SATAN IS DECEIVING HUMAN THROUGH THE PICTURE OF “JESUS” (IT IS NOT JESUS) AND JESUS CHRIST WHO IS TRUE AND ALIVE IS TRYING SO HARD TO WIN HIS PEOPLE WHO ARE REALLY LONGING AFTER HIM, BY REMINDS THEM ABOUT OBEDIENCE TO THE SECOND COMMANDMENT. (Jeremiah 2:11-13, Rev 13:7-9, Mal 4:4)

Jeremiah 10:14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them. 15 They are vanity, and the work of errors: in the time of their visitation they shall perish.

This truth revealed on 21 December 2006. With God’s help, the testimony and teachings about this written on eight tittles of Good News: 1. “Devil’s Deception Revealed, Revealing Truth”, 2. “Salvation Comes! Saved By Grace Through Faith”, 3. “The TRUTH Is Come, Kingdom Which Cannot Be Moved.”, 4. “The Faith Of Yeshua”, 5. “NOW GOD COMMANDETH ALL MEN EVERYWHERE TO REPENT”, 6. “THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, GOOD NEWS!”, 7. “JESUS CHRIST THE LORD”, 8. “I Am Not Sent But Unto The Lost Sheep Of Israel”

God calls all people everywhere to repent (Act 17:29-31),

Those who do not repent will get the sword of God.

Isaiah 65:12 Therefore will I number you to the sword, and ye shall all bow down to the slaughter: because when I called, ye did not answer; when I spake, ye did not hear; but did evil before mine eyes, and did choose that wherein I delighted not.

Jeremiah 16:20 Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods? 21 Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is The LORD.

Isaiah 42:8 42:8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

Isaiah 46:5; To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?

John 5:23 ; That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.

Repent! Fear the Lord!
