4:24 The sense is, Lord, thou hast all power. And thy word is fulfilled. Men do rage against thee: but it is in vain.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 4:24


Ac 4:24 Lifted up their voice to God with one accord. All engaged in prayer. It was a time of trial. They were forbidden, under awful threats, to preach Christ (Ac 4:18,21). Hence they go to God.

Discussion for Acts 4

  • Barbara
    KJ version is only translation that uses the phrase Acts 4:30 By the Name of Jesus not through the Name of Jesus. This gives two different meanings to me. Am I missing something here or am I misunderstanding
  • BSP
    Verse 13~They were outspoken because they had the holy spirit which gave them the boldness to be fearlessly outspoken.
  • Lilian
    There are no other name given under the heaven its only Jesus Its only Jesus died on the cross and shed his blood for us so that you and me will be saved the stone has turn away and this is symbolises that Jesus resurrection and was raised from the dead thanks to your blood Lord Jesus my Jehova Shalom
  • BSP
    Verse 12- there is no salvation in anyone else but Jesus and their is no other true path to follow.
  • BSP
    Verse 3~Persecution arose soon after holy spirit was poured out. Satan uses his earthly agents to try and stop the progress of the true Christian congregation.
  • Freddieo
    I remember my baptism at 20 years old. It truly was an unforgettable experience. The p0wer of the holy ghost can truly have an immediate impact upon you. I like to compare it to hitting a home run. I pray that same power would continue with me forever, and the Love of Jesus and the power of the holy ghost. Peter, like me, started out good, he did deny Christ. This is the journey that is ahead.
