Discussion for Acts 16:18

  • Papacool on Acts 16:18
    The power in the name of Jesus is mind boggling. I wonder for the sake of the miracles, why would Christ still be rejected? We have been promised to do even greater things and we do not realize what things can be done. Thank God for the power of the Blood.
  • Ethel Dawson on Acts 16:18
    By the power of Jesus this was done and Paul also believed that it could be done through Christ (Paul's belief in Christ). We pray and believe that God will cure, heal, destroy diseases,addictions, or whatever is overtaking us. We know we can't do these things in our own power (or we would have already), so we believe that God in his divinity will do these things for us because of our belief that He can.
