Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Acts 2:27


2:27 Thou wilt not leave my soul in hades - The invisible world. But it does not appear, that ever our Lord went into hell. His soul, when it was separated from the body, did not go thither, but to paradise, #Luke 23:43|. The meaning is, Thou wilt not leave my soul in its separate state, nor suffer my body to be corrupted.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 2:27


Ac 2:27 Not leave my soul in hell. In Hades, the unseen abode of the dead. The meaning is that he would not remain under the power of death. See Ps 16:10. David did not speak this of himself, but of the Son of David. See Ac 2:29. Thine Holy One. The Lord Jesus. The promised Messiah.

    There is No Remission for Sin Without The Blood of The Lamb(Hebrews 9:11-28) Washed by The Blood(Revelation1-5)Then You are Clean Enough for The Holy Ghost to Move in(Mark 1:8) You Will be Changed(2 Corinthians 5:17) Impossible Not to Know. You Will Tell Others what Christ has Done in Your Life and How They Can be Saved. Without The Call of The Father Impossible( John 6:44) A Tug on Your Heart

    An example to the modern day church but we have gone off.
    LORD HELP US

    The moon is suppose to turn into blood, or so appear to be so tomorrow night. 01 20th, 2019. Although all the signs are here still people are foolish do not see the end is near. God wI'll return. Those who disbelieves are in for a shock the day Jesus comes back God rids the evil throws it all back into hell. I just hope my feet are clean enough to walk across th e golden streets of glory.
  • William R McCourtie
    No one can come to the Father unless the Holy Spirit draws him. (para. KJV) That's why the time to commit and accept Christ as one's Savior is Now. Men will try to escape and even curse God but will not repent because the Holy Spirit will not be drawing men in the day of judgment. Receive Christ now while you have time.
