People's Bible Notes for Acts 2:39


Ac 2:39 For the promise. Of pardon, and the gift of the Spirit. Unto you. Even unto those who rejected the Lord. To your children. Your children after you. To all that are afar off. To the Gentiles. That he refers to the Gentiles is shown in the next clause, [even] as many as the Lord our God shall call. Peter spoke as the Spirit gave him utterance, and perhaps did not fully comprehend his own words.

    What does this mean it is saying to be saved you haft to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost and to do that you haft to truely repent and then be baptized in the name of Jesus not the trinity but Jesus name and with the the evidence of speaking in tounges

    Calling upon the name of the of the Lord is definitely a part of our salvation further study and prayer is necessary for a more complete understanding of what is required.

  • Lilian
    Those who call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Thank you Jesus i believed you Jesus that you are Son of the living God. I trust you Lord and worship you alone for you are worthy to be praise you are my Rock and my Salvation amen
  • Cristina Scheeler
    When Peter said, Repent, be baptized, then the gift of the Holy Spirit will come. What he is saying is, Repent, stop turn around from your sin, turn to Jesus. At that point, you are saved. Then be baptized, as an act of confession to the Church, on what you did. Baptizing has nothing to do with salvation. And at the point of repenting, is when the Holy Spirit comes into your heart.
