People's Bible Notes for Acts 2:21


Ac 2:21 Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord, etc. To turn to the Lord for salvation in his appointed way. It means far more than simply prayer. He who would call on the name of the Lord for salvation must do more than say, "Lord, Lord, open unto us" (Lu 13:25). He must hear and obey (Mt 7:21).

    To Rodney- again; I know I said in my last message that it was 'all', but I did need to explain more of why I 'attacked' him; He is a pastor, right? I'm not angry nor indignant with him; it's just I was raised to believe pastors are to seek God for their guidance and answers; not their flock. The pastors are to teach the flock, not vice versa. We are DEFINITELY not to teach the pastors, 1pet.5:2.

    To Rodney - Since you are assuming I attacked a man of God and could not 'hear' my tone of voice - nor discern my attitude - this is all I will say, except - I do thank-you for the response, God Bless you.

    To Irene123. It seems to me like your knowledge has you puffed up....Why would you attack a Man of God when he is simply asking a question about Peters nakedness.

    Something I literally just now noticed - I went to ch. 3 and saw Peter's healing of the lame man at the gate; somewhere I read (not on here) that this was the Apostle's first healing. No, it wasn't; in ch. 2, after the message, "many signs and wonders were done ....."; the 'gate' healing was spoken of as a miraculous miracle because of their 'instant' faith, right on the spot.
  • Irene123
    To Bible Reader on salvation - repentance, baptism in the name of Jesus; do you include the 'evidence' of tongues in that .....?
