"...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."
Acts 2:38 (KJV)

Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee."Lev 19:19 "Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled. Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together. Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together."Deu 22:9-11 "The Law" is sometimes used to refer to the five books that Moses wrote: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy; but in this case The Law refers to instructions God gave to Moses for the Jewish people living in Canaan. The Law was given in three areas: moral law, civil law and ceremonial law. The 10 Commandments were moral law given to the Jews. It began, "I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage."Exo 20:2 They were not written TO you and me. It us TO the Jewish people at that time. We can be instructed by the 10 Commandments and most of those laws are universal. Christians make the first day of the week as their day of rest. Regarding garments, these prohibitions were designed to keep the Jewish people separated from the Jewish Priests and separated from the practices of the nations that surrounded them. It was civil (cultural) and ceremonial. This was The Old Covenant. We are in a different Covenant with God, The New Covenant. The Old Covenant does not apply to us. That's not to say that now it's okay to murder, adulterize and steal. Just read Matthew 5. But wear any blend of fabrics you like.

3/12/2021, 7:21am by "Bob Jack": What stands out in this verse is not wearing clothes that are made with two different types of thread. I'm wondering about the reason why God states this as a thou shalt not. My guess is that it represents mixture ie: (law and Grace)? So' excuse me, i need to clean out my closet !!!!!!!! LOL!
3/11/2021, 1:34pm by "Carleton": Can we believe that Jesus knows who will be faithful until the end? We run this life of faith in this hope, that we too may finish this life with our names written safely in the Lamb's Book of Life. So we encourage, so we run! :)
3/11/2021, 8:59am by "Mendy": You are actually in error. You are proclaiming submitting to the Lord gets your name in the book of life but this is wrong. When they asked Peter what they needed to do to be saved he plainly told them "repent". If you would like to talk further about it we should start here.
2/22/2021, 12:04am by "Charles R Peek": Acts 2:38, according to Matthew 10:5-7 is for the Lost sheep of the house of Israel; and first Corinthians 15: verse 3, and 4, are for the Gentiles. Take a look, and let me know what you think.
2/14/2021, 7:16pm by "Maggie K Valentine": Immediately upon submitting ones life to Jesus, and acknowledging His death as the ultimate sacrifice for our dastardly sins; in that nanosecond our names are written in the Lambs Book Of Life. Jesus immediately sends His Spirit to live and dwell in us. There is nothing we can do or say that will cause the Lord to send His Spirit upon us. It is a "free gift!" We can't earn it. Then the Spirit would be categorized as "Good Works!" Absolutely not! When Christ cried out in John's gospel, "It is finished" The sin debt was paid in full!! We did zero to earn the gift of salvation: just as we do nothing to prove to God we are now ready for His Spirit. Positively in error...
1/02/2021, 11:28am by "VICTORIA FONSECA": Thank you Willie, that is what I thought and that is what I tried to tell this other person but they kept telling me that when peter told the people to repent and be baptize it was directed to the Israel and the gentiles only had to believe through grace but didn't have to repent and that gave me a red flag! I told her it was a command even though baptism doesn't save but it is symbolic symbol of of our new birth in Jesus in the death , burial and Resurrection to the world, and that God calls all to repent
12/31/2020, 6:10pm by "willie": Dear Victoria Read Acts chapter 10 tells how Peter went to Cornelius, you can go right to verse 45 and the Jews were astonished that the gentiles received the Holy Spirit. Never doubt Jesus love for all who call on him. Respectfully Willie
