Discussion for Acts 2

  • Wayne
    VV.38 and 41: repent and be saved, baptized, and they received the Holy Ghost. No speaking in other languages needed that day. Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Speaking another language is a sign to unbelievers, not believers.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    From the book of Acts to the book of Jude, its all there. Speaking in Tongues is an absolute must for you to manafest because Gods Holy Word says so. The Word of God IS the WILL of God, Amen and Amen indeed. Shalom yedda dim {beloved one}.
  • 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.
  • Irene123
    What I think of Acts 2 is -- it is THE beginning of Jesus' church and HIS salvation is found in verse 38.
  • Irene123
    I know He calls us and He receives us - after we have followed Acts 2:38. There is no, with just our mouths, 'accepting' Him as our personal savior. not when Peter himself, with the keys of knowledge Jesus gave him, was inspired by the Holy Ghost to preach Acts 2:38. How could anyone think that Jesus is such a 'marshmallow after the pre-scourging, then hours of crucifixion he went thru?
  • Geraldine cole
