People's Bible Notes for Acts 2:2


Ac 2:2 There came a sound. As this day, the day of the founding of the church, was to be a day of signs and wonders, the shedding forth of the Spirit was made perceptible to all. The sound was heard, the tongues of fire were seen, the word was spoken in many languages. It filled all the house. The mighty sound. At the same time the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit, their spirits baptized in the Spirit.

Discussion for Acts 2

  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Not long after the first century church two churchs or brides of the gentiles had evolved. The Apostate and Backsliding brides. Save but for His chosen elect beloved Judah holy Zion God will send the greater than John for our Blessed Lord Christ YESHUA is Glorified seated at Gods Right Hand amen. This Elijah Restores and Prepares His True and Genuine Bride once more unto His Everlasting Glory.
  • A disciple
    Stephen Z; You are missing something major in your "theories." The kingdom of God and the kingdom of heaven is the same thing; and it is the announced glad tidings of Christ having come in the flesh, and the fulfillment manifested in the lives of the Saints of Jesus. The times of the Gentiles started when the kingdom was forfeited to Nebuchadnezzar, and will be removed at the Day of Christ.
  • A disciple
    Alex; The kingdom of God does not come with observation; neither shall they say, Lo, here! or, Lo, there! for the kingdom of God is within you! "Let him that teaches WAIT on teaching!" "Verily I say to you, We speak that we do KNOW, and testify that we have seen; and no man receives our testimony!" Yet the fool is wiser in his own eyes than seven men who can render him a reason. PRAY Psalm 119!
  • ALEX
    Jesus said i am the light of the world i must do the works of him that sent me while it is DAY the NIGHT COMES WHEN NO MAN CAN WORK,Isaiah said that darkness wd cover the earth and gross darkness the ppl,The last 2000 yrs ( 2 days ) have been a time of spritual darkness when NO MAN CAN WORK ( SPRITUALLY ), WITHOUT ME YOU CAN DO NOTHIN, WE DO NOT HAVE THE KINGDOM NOW THUS WE LOOK FOR A 2ND COMING .
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Praise the Lord my God amen indeed. This day had had marked the entry into the Kingdom of God age = Gentiles. Proof positive that both John the baptist and Christ YESHUA had closed out the Kingdom of heaven or Old Testament age. Speaking in Tongues = Christ in You = the true and genuine Temple made without hands = Acts through Jude. We are now the latter days church age. Shalom beloved Judah Zion.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Speaking in Tongues is and always has been the norm of the new birth which is { Christ in you } made of the true and genuine Temple made without hands unto His Everlasting Glory amen indeed. This is what the Word says and this is what it means. From the book of Acts through unto the book of Jude we are the latter days church in the Kingdom of God. Shalom!
