Discussion for Acts 2

  • Jacob
    Acts chapter 2 is a continuation of John the Baptist's baptism see Mk 1:4. That's why they had to be re baptized in Acts 19 because they had his baptism Acts 19:4. Acts transitions from the law to grace. You don't receive the Holy Ghost like that today, you receive the Spirit through faith see Gal 3:14. After the Jews rejected Christ in Acts 7 Paul is saved and God goes to the Gentiles Acts 20:28.
  • Nathan
    Acts2:38 is the only salvation for our souls. Not confessing he is lord and BAM your saved. That would be false doctrine. Mark my words, "There will be a preacher killing day for the falls doctrine" there is only one God one Baptism One Holy Ghost. And it's reall o God it's reall blessed be your name o Lord. Amen

    to Sharon - you advised someone (I didn't take notice of who) to read acts ch. 2. Yes, I agree - please really study it. Matt. 28: 19 is in there, in vs. 4 and 37-38.

    God would not just give it to you . But if you arks for something like blessing for somebody God will be done upon there lives. and to seek it means to seek the word of door you now what i am talking about? and nock and the door will be opened for you and Gods people . and may god bless you all in everything that is done Amen
