People's Bible Notes for Acts 21:9

Ac 21:9 Had four daughters . . . which did prophesy. Compare Ac 2:17. The prophetic spirit in either the Old or New Testament is not confined to a single sex. Miriam (Ex 15:20), Deborah (Jud 4:4), and Huldah (2Ki 22:14 2Ch 34:22) are Old Testament examples, and in the New Testament, Elizabeth (Lu 1:41,42, Mary (Lu 1:46-55), Anna (Lu 2:36), and the daughters of Philip are instances.

    Evangelist Robinson - when you say "because Jesus Christ had not died yet and sent back the Holy Ghost", please reconsider! Remember - Saul had been converted on his way to Damascus by Jesus Christ who was already resurrected after being crucified. Also, the day of Pentacost had already occurred which means the Holy Ghost had be sent to the apostiles.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Christan obinna nwator The reason they are still talking about the Law because the Law was still in place. Jesus came and fulfilled the Law, John 15 25. Grace had not started yet, because Jesus Christ had not died yet and sent back the Holy Ghost. The Bible is broken up into 7 dispensations. Jesus Christ was born during the Dispensation of the Law. This is the 5th Dispensation. It ended with the crucifixion of Christ, Romans 10 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth . Then the 6th starts with the outpouring of the Holy Ghost. This dispensation in which we are in now is called the Grace Age and will end with the rapture. Then the 7th dispensation will start with the tribulation period. So the grace age had not been implemented yet.
  • Christan obinna nwator for verse 20
    It amazes me that a disciple like James encouraged them about the knowing fully well that no man could fullfil the law and that 's why Christ came to free us from the burden of the law,yet James and co is advocating it,maybe he does not yet understood that grace superceeds the law

    After Jesus had departed, the disciples scattered through the different parts of Israel and of the world, and the truth, hated of Satan, was persecuted, as it always is, by falsehood. For certain evil men, pretending to be disciples, preached that Jesus died and rose not again. Others preached that he really died, but rose again. Others preached, and yet preach, that Jesus is the Son of God, among whom is Paul deceived. But we as much as I have written we preach to those that fear God, that they may be saved in the last day of God 's Judgment. Amen. Barnabas 222
