People's Bible Notes for Acts 2:5


Ac 2:5 There were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men. Devout Jews who had come up to the great feast of Pentecost. The Jews were already scattered in many nations, but foreign Jews were wont to flock to the great national feasts. Some, too, had come to end their days at Jerusalem. Every nation under heaven. From all quarters of the world. Jews, in foreign lands, attended Pentecost in larger numbers than the other feasts, because the time of year favored travel.

Discussion for Acts 2

    Acts 2:33 This is a scripture no one can deny. Studying to show thy self-approved.


    I thank Jesus who was God in flesh for showing me these scriptures, this not only shows what God has done for the believers but it also so shows proof of our salvation. Proof through each believes with evidence of speaking in tounges after the infilling/baptism of the Holy Ghost.
  • 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.

    Stephen Jesus didnt feed the multitudes till the 3 rd day,they had to fast for 2 days,he says the days are coming when THE BRIDEGROOM WILL BE TAKEN AWAY THEN SHALL YOU FAST IN THOSE DAYS,DAYS ARE PLURAL 2 DAYS 2000 YRS NO BRIDEGROOM,THUS NO KINGDOM FOR 2 DAYS 2000 YRS. THE DAYS ARE COMING WHEN YOU WILL DESIRE TO SEE 1 OF THE DAYS OF THE SON OF MAN BUT YOU WILL NOT SEE THEM.NO BRIDEGROOM NO KINGDOM

    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?
