Discussion for Acts 2

  • Jacob
    The church was started at Pentecost but the physical Kingdom was still being offered. Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come FROM THE PRESENCE of the Lord. They were added and saved according to Acts 2:38 then but not after Paul's revelation of the mystery see Eph 3:1-9. Today its' faith alone (Rom 3:24-25)!

    If the Lord say so why not obey ? They all not some received vs. 38-47 speaks loud to me.... And the LORD added to THE CHURCH daily such as should be SAVED. ...think about what that means it has been spoken....Repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ EVERYONE and ye SHALL not might but shall receive the gift of the holy ghost, he let's us know this is the gospel. .don't resist it. Bless

    i think that i you read the Act of Apostle Chapter 2 down to 13 very well, according to my own understanding, all i see there about baptism. though John baptized with water but god said that there should wait for the baptism of the holy ghost which there waited for 10 good days and after there were baptized all were speaking in tongues. i think you will understand it more as you proceed Amen.

    I'm so sorry but I would like to who in their right mind will stand and argue about the scriptures before giving themselves a fair chance, all you have to do is go down on your knees and repent of all your wrong before God and just ask him if this is real he still talks to anyone that seeks him if you're being real trust me he will hear you so go in private and pray until u she'd tears. Blessing
  • Nb
    The scripture itself makes it clear that the languages spoken were known languages spoken by some of people there from all the Jewish nations who gathered there for the feast of Pentecost. It was not some angelic language known only to God. There are many who truly believe they are speaking this heavenly language, but, sadly, they are in error. This was a sign gift for that period of time. The Holy Spirit comes in to dwell now when we accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We should seek to be filled with Him by obedience to His written Word, and love for one another.
  • Jacob
    Acts 15:9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts BY FAITH. No water baptism added. Amen Peter. Now Peter has the message that agrees with Pauline doctrine. Paul is our apostle for the church age see Rom 11:13, 1 Tim 2:7, 2 Tim 1:11, Rom 15:16, Acts 9:15, 1TIM 1:16. Paul received an abundance of revelations that had been kept secret since the world began (Ro 16:25).
