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).

Discussion for Acts 2

  • MISSIONERY PASTOR TIMOTHY MUSAU
    THE CHURCH JESUS WAS BORN AT PENTECOST DAY, SET APART ON THE SAME DAY, CAME UP WITH A DIFFERENT SYSTEM OF ERADICATING POVERTY BY SHARING WHAT THEY HAD ACCORDING TO THEIR NEEDS AND NOBODY LACKED THUS COVERING EACH OTHERS NAKEDNESS.
  • Theresa Jerome
    They all had a relationship with the almighty, they all were on the mind of the almighty, because they all was in one place with God, they were all hit by the rushing wind, they didn't only get hit they were all filled with the holy Spirit and fire,and began to speak in many different languages as they had access to the holy Spirit.

    An answer to Magnocrat question v5,
    Yes they were devout men meaning they had deep religious feelings and committment, dedicated, loyal, faithful, steadfast, firm and zealous.
  • Jacob
    You receive the Spirit today by faith Gal 3:14. Peter realized this dispensational change by Acts 15:9. They received the Holy Ghost before water baptism in Acts 10:47. Peter never preached Acts 2:38's message after he realized the mystery revealed to the apostle Paul Eph 3:1-9, Rom 16:25. This differs form the Kingdom of Heaven message. Compare Lk 1:70, Acts 3:21 with Rom 16:25, 1 Cor 2.7.
  • Magnocrat
    Devout men of every nation : does that mean they were religious men
  • Irene123
    What I think of Acts 2 is -- it is THE beginning of Jesus' church and HIS salvation is found in verse 38.
