People's Bible Notes for Acts 5:14


Ac 5:14 Both of men and women. This is one of a number of instances in which women are named in early church history. As remarked elsewhere, at first the converts were mainly men. See PNT "Ac 4:4". Now there are also women.

    God is Total Love. His Compassion is so Strong-- it helps us to take His Strength when we need it to move any mountain -and stand as a rock when we ask for His help. Evilness stands close..But your Father in Heaven gives us His Blessed Light of His Love to keeo us Safe!!!

    The apostles could not deny what they had seen and witnessed being done by the power of GOD. Even us today we cannot deny what JESUS is doing in our times The sick are healed, people are saved through the same NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.

    these bold disciples, who just weeks before were cowering in a secret hideout because of their fear of getting arrested and murdered like the Christ, were now proclaiming the gospel, tells me their testimony was indeed real. Once the Holy Spirit came and filled them, they had no more fear, because they KNEW Jesus was God...awesome!!

    Verse 37~There have always been those who rise up in revolt and gain a number of follower. Eventually these people pass away and their follower are scattered. The only real solution to the problems we see today is the coming of God's Kingdom.
