Bible commentary

People's Bible Notes for Acts 6:8


Ac 6:8 And Stephen . . . did great wonders and miracles. He is the first gospel preacher, not an apostle, whose work is named. He is also the first, not an apostle, under the new dispensation, to work miracles. Philip, also, of the seven, possessed miraculous power (Ac 8:6). Both received the imposition of apostolic hands. This seems to have been necessary to impart this power (Ac 8:15,17,19). See also Ro 1:11. As far as we know, it was limited to apostles, and to those whom whom the apostles laid hands. Also see PNT "Ac 5:12".

    Verse 11~The religious leaders trumped up charges against Stephen and accused him of blasphemy. We see the same false accusations taking place today against innocent ones.

    He was talking about the sin full body that the adam had. But in place to what the devil told him
  • Natukunda medius
    IAM OVERWHELMED BY THE DEVOTION OF THE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST, THEY HAD RESPECT FOR THE WORK OF GOD AND SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES TO SERVE HIM WHICH IS NOT THERE NOW WITH THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD. LETS GO BACK TO THE WORD AND THE FIRST DEVOTION CHILDREN OF GOD.
  • A disciple
    Correction: The Angel took incense and offered it with the prayers of all Saints upon the Altar. He then took the censer and filled it with fire of the Altar of incense, and threw it into the earth; this signifying that it was for the sake of the martyrs of Jesus and the prayers borne out of His suffering Church, that wrath and the Day of the LORD comes to make an end with the wicked of the earth.
  • A disciple
    Ray; I don't understand what you mean by, "This will delay the second coming of Jesus." In Revelation it is because of the souls of the witnesses under the Altar, who are crying to the LORD for vengeance, that the Day of the LORD comes upon the ungodly! Before the seven Angels sounded their trumpets, the one Angel took hot coals from off the Altar, and offered them with the prayers of all Saints.
