Wesley's Notes for Acts 10:34


10:34 I perceive of a truth - More clearly than ever, from such a concurrence of circumstances. That God is not a respecter of persons - Is not partial in his love. The words mean, in a particular sense, that he does not confine his love to one nation; in a general, that he is loving to every man, and willeth all men should be saved.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 10:34


Ac 10:34 Then Peter opened [his] mouth. The same preacher who, on the day of Pentecost, declared the conditions of salvation to the Jews now declares them for the first time to the Gentiles. To him Christ gave the keys of the kingdom (Mt 16:19), and with them he opened its doors to both Jew and Gentile. I perceive that God is no respecter of persons. It has just dawned on him that Jew and Gentile are on the same footing in God's sight. Those who fear the Lord in any nation, of any race, will be accepted.

    ACTS 10:34 THEN PETER OPENED HIS MOUTH AND SAID OF A TRUTH I PERCEIVE THAT GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS 35 BUT IN EVERY NATION HE THAT FEARETH HIM AND WORKETH RIGHTEOUSNESS IS ACCEPTED WITH HIM ROMANS 6:16 KNOW YOU NOT THAT TO WHOM YOU YIELD YOURSELVES SERVANTS TO OBEY HIS SERVANTS YOU ARE TO WHOM YOU OBEY WHETHER OF SIN UNTO DEATH OR OF OBEDIENCE UNTO RIGTEOUSNESS

    I need an explanation for Acts 10:39,it talks about a TREE so where does the CROSS come from
  • Irene123
    Vs,13-16; this was a vision. It had to do with the apostles including the Gentiles along with their fellow Jews in witnessing of Jesus and His salvation. It had nothing to do with literal eating food. Peter may have actually consumed food the next a.m., but THAT is not germane to salvation - AT ALL.
  • Joe
    Did Peter ever eat after food was offered him three times?
  • Skyler
    I love God sooooooo much

    Cornelius became born again.
    God is Spirit,His worshippers must worship Him in truth and Spirit.
    Peter became born again on the day of Pentecost.
    Unless we are born again we can not.see the Kingdom ofGod.
