Wesley's Notes for Acts 2:19


2:19 And I will show prodigies in heaven above, and signs on earth beneath - Great revelations of grace are usually attended with great judgments on those who reject it. In heaven - Treated of, #Ac 2:20|. On earth - Described in this verse. Such signs were those mentioned, #Ac 2:22|, before the passion of Christ; which are so mentioned as to include also those at the very time of the passion and resurrection, at the destruction of Jerusalem, and at the end of the world. Terrible indeed were those prodigies in particular which preceded the destruction of Jerusalem: such as the flaming sword hanging over the city, and the fiery comet pointing down upon it for a year; the light that shone upon the temple and the altar in the night, as if it had been noon - day; the opening of the great and heavy gate of the temple without hands; the voice heard from the most holy place, Let us depart hence; the admonition of Jesus the son of Ananus, crying for seven years together, Wo, wo, wo; the vision of contending armies in the air, and of entrenchments thrown up against a city there represented; the terrible thunders and lightnings, and dreadful earthquakes, which every one considered as portending some great evil: all which, through the singular providence of God, are particularly recorded by Josephus. Blood - War and slaughter. Fire - Burnings of houses and towns, involving all in clouds of smoke.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 2:19


Ac 2:19 I will shew wonders in heaven. Peter not only quotes that part of the prophecy of Joel which was applicable to the events now transpiring, but he quotes that part also which pertains to the calamities coming on the Jewish nation, and to the final judgment (Joe 2:28-32). I understand Ac 2:19 to apply directly to the overthrow of Judea and Jerusalem.

    Baptism is one step closer to getting into heaven the next step is speaking in other tongues wish only god well understands you are baptized with the holy ghost 1Corinthians14 "For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him." also you would have to start living a holy life to take care of your body because it is gods temple. 1Corth619

    Thank God for the Holy Spirit who leads and guides us into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak; and he will show us things to come.

    Acts 7:55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, Before Stephen got stone, Jesus was standing to come down from Heaven, but when Stephen died, Jesus sat back down. There was a reason for Jesus for standing. The Mystery

    Acts 2:16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel The Apostles thought they were on the last days. Joel 1:15 15 Alas for the day! for the day of the Lord is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come. The Apostle knew the day of the Lord was near. They were living it , but something stops all that, in chapter 7, the stoning of Stephen. Jews rejected Christ.
