    1 Corinthians 14:37 If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord. 1 Corinthians 11:1 Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ
  • A disciple
    Psalms 119:73 "Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments." Our God knows and understands all things; and His desire regarding us has always been, that as His children we should also. If there had been no sin in the beginning... but we never got a chance to learn how to be His children the way He had in mind when He created us, until JESUS!!!!

    Isaiah 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. God will teach a man if he his willing in his Heart.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The apostles are all fired up! The Holy Spirit is at work. We can also be fired up for Christ if we have the Holy Spirit. Money cannot buy it. We need to come pleading for it after salvation and sanctification. The Ethiopian eunuch's story tells us to pray for the Holy Spirit to guide us when we are reading the Bible for proper interpretation.

    Acts 8:1 And Saul was consenting unto his death. And at that time there was a great persecution against the church which was at Jerusalem and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. God sent Jesus to saved sinners like Saul. Praise the Lord.
  • A disciple
    "And God, which knows the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us; and put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith." Why do so many try to separate the Christian of today from the Commonwealth of Israel and the Disciples in the beginning, and make things free, easy and automatic to us; that were given to them under strict conditions?
