    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
  • A disciple
    Forgive me, Ray; but you are mistaken with what you say about Stephen's death preventing the coming of the Lord! That is something simply out of your own head; nothing that can be qualified by Scripture or the Spirit of the LORD in all Prophecies. The Day of the LORD comes when the transgressors are come to the full and all restraint has been taken away from them to do all that they have imagined.
  • Ray321
    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.

    Verse 11 shows the power of hearing the good news of God in one's own language.
  • A disciple
    "..Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven..every man heard them speak in his own language." It may seem like an insignificant point that there were Jews from every Nation under heaven; but there is much in it. Because of Israel's sin and rebellion, rejection of the faith and God's Spirit in His Prophets; they were put under the dominion of the Gentiles until the Day of the LORD.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The promise of the Holy Ghost is now fulfilled. Right from the Day of Pentecost, it is being showered on us today. We must "repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call."
