Wesley's Notes for Acts 2:40


2:40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort - In such an accepted time we should add line upon line, and not leave off, till the thing is done. Save yourselves from this perverse generation - Many of whom were probably mocking still.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 2:40


Ac 2:40 Save yourselves. This was the object of the "many other words". They could "save themselves" by complying with the conditions named in Ac 2:38, and thus accepting Christ as their Savior. From this perverse generation. The wicked Jewish race.

Discussion for Acts 2

  • Orlando
    Contrary to popular beleif, Repentance is a step, a pillar and the agent unto the covenant God has given us as prophesied in Joel 2:12-14 This repentance, Has NEVER equated salvation. It suffices the requirement of the LAW, Baptism suffices the requirement of Promise, and tounges suffices the requirement of the Sign. These three are made one in us, LAW,Atonement and Charity.

    Only our Heavenly abba daddy can put us all back on the very same page of the accurate Rightly Divided Word of the Truth and thats just what HE alone can do in these latter days in this Kingdom of God {Love-Salvation-Grace-Full Restoration in the Holy Ghost} once again as promised. The latter rain belongs to His chosen elect beloved Judah Holy Zion to be made of the Temple Made Without Hands amen.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    I am not your enemy a disciple though at first you sure treated me so. Sure. Their are those of us who know more and are sharper than others Rightly Dividing the Word but it was never meant to be that way. Only our Heavenly abba daddy can do this and YES HE WILL in these latter days before the Kingdom of God closes our Brother. Shalom.
  • A disciple
    Stephen Z; I just want to point out to you that though part of what you write is accurate and correct according to the Scriptures; a better knowledge of the entire history with respect to God's plan for man, shows more than what you say; and we have a tendency to negate the importance of the things done in past ages because our perception of history is so short. Maybe we can work together on this?
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Dear a disciple. I do not have any theories but the Rightly Divided Word of the truth itself and I back it. We still abide in the Kingdom of God which began at the Day of Pentecost Acts through Jude period. The Kingdom of God is and always has been a temporary age of the Gentiles which transitions back to the Kingdom of Heaven or Revelation. Its called accuracy a disciple. Shalom.
  • 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.
