People's Bible Notes for Acts 9:43


Ac 9:43 Tarried many days. Perhaps a year. In Joppa with one Simon the tanner. Joppa was a large city and a favorable field of work. Here Peter was found, at "the house of Simon the tanner" (Ac 10:6) when called to Caesarea by the messengers of Cornelius. It was by the seaside (Ac 10:32) and a house is still pointed out, close to the seashore, as that of Simon, which Dean Stanley believes to be on the original site.

  • EROMOSELE CLEMENT EHIMARE
    Amazing scripture with so much to learn. first Jesus change Saul's vision from going to Damascus to kill persecute to preaching Christ and leading people to salvation. secondly, God used Ananias to restore Saul's sight, got him saved, baptize, and his name changed from Saul to Paul. third lesson was God working through Peter to raise Dorcas to life. it means God can do any miracle through us.et

    All unrighteousness is sin: Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin. He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin; for his seed remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

    When we live right and follow GOD'S commandments. We can do exploit like He told us we will do. We will have power to heal the sick, to deliver, and to help set the captive free. We will have power after being endued with the Holy ghost. Although, we sometimes commit sin and allow the devil to use us God knows our heart and He has a purpose for us. He is just to forgive and make us clean to be use
