Discussion for Acts 2

  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    These are all counterfeits. Not one in the flesh can speak the words of GOD, my Holy Father, but Jesus Christ. The wicked fabricated all manner of falsehood waiting for the coming of Jesus, even Christ being raised again from the dead, yet confess not that Jesus Christ is come. Nevertheless, this present evil world will end just as the last world. For it is written, The scripture cannot be broken:

    I enjoy reading the chapter letting us no what was going to happen when God come back. You need to get your life together on earth. While you have a chance.

    ACTS 2:38 is not an option but is necessary for salvation!
  • TC
    The essence of Chapter 2 is the gift of the Holy Ghost to enable us as witnesses, yet many today deny it's existence and power, it is the promise Jesus made when he promised to pray the Father for another to also give us power even miracles for witness and glory to God's power today in the church. Why do they have to show Oral Robert's films to show miracles in today's church? May God awaken us!
