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.

Discussion for Acts 10

    Irene; good morning! Psalm 68:21 "But God shall wound the head of his enemies, and the hairy scalp of such an one as goeth on still in his trespasses." In that magnificent Psalm Song of David, is prophesied the great Day of the LORD the KING; when God arises, and them that hate Him flee before Him. In it also is described the mysteries of the gifts of the Spirit that Jesus gave to us from on high.

    Disciple - "God shall wound the head of his enemies, and the hairy scalp of .....; where does one find this scripture?
  • A dsiciple
    AMEN BROTHER!!! So very good to read these words of truth! We are not what we used to be! Jesus said, "NOW YOU ARE CLEAN THROUGH THE WORD THAT I HAVE SPOKEN TO YOU." If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature (new creation); old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. God shall wound the head of His enemies, and the hairy scalp of such a one who goes on still in their sins.
  • Joseph Hackney
    I HEAR SO MANY PEOPLE INCLUDING PASTOR'S WHO WILL CALL THEMSELVES "A SINNER SAVED BY GRACE"...... IM NO LONGER A SINNER. GOD HAS WASHED ME CLEAN AND MADE ME A NEW CREATION. THE CORRECT WAY TO SAY IT SHOULD BE " I "WAS" A SINNER WHO WAS SAVED BY GRACE. THIS ALSO CAN INCLUDE FORMER ADDICTS.. AN ADDICT WHO HAS BEEN DELIVERED ISN'T A "RECOVERING" ADDICT, TO SAY "RECOVERING" IS TO SAY THEY ARE STILL
  • Evangelist Evelyn Esike
