    Interesting Vision came down by Vessel connected to Heaven at each corner. God spoke Msg 3 x. Reflecting Truth In God the Father, God the Son God the Holy Spirit. That all is are made by God the Father Able to Receive the Kingdom of God By The Word through his Holy Spirit. ....Saddening to witness extensive searching for UFO s when there are no such things.
    I personally love Peter's humility in explaining to others why he did what he did with the Gentiles. Barnabas was his brothers keeper. Acts 11 also shows that God does not count our sins against us , he love us irrespective of who we are and where we are. just accepting Christ as our Saviour is the access card we need for eternal life. God be praise

    Yes we must except the Lord Jesus and believe but that alone won't save unless we turn and follow him. Romans 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. plus verse 2 -- Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, but he that doeth the will of my Father

    Repenting means changing Your Mind and agreeing with God, He is Wisdom and Truth. If you say you have no sin, you make Him a liar. Why won't you come to Him so that you can be saved? Repent and find rest for your soul!

    peter was true servant of the lord that always was in connection with with the voice of God. The way that Peter responded to the call against the perceptions, the law, creeds of the Jews is a perfect type to the church that we ought to be moved by the spirit and not man made ideas, creeds or culture.

    Acts 11:18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life. All the Gentiles have to do is change there way of believing and believe God's way. That's repentance.
  • Matt
    This is a recap of Acts ch. 10. The subject matter is about salvation for the Gentiles (6th day mankind)

    Verse 26 shows that it was first in Antioch that the disciples were called Christians.
  • Michael C.
    "What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common." We, as the children of God, should discern what is sacred and holy, in the same Spirit as our Father in heaven. The redemption of a man's soul, and all that goes into his salvation, is precious; and true conversions rare. Insomuch as we should carefully scrutinize to assure someone's right repentance and faith; by so much our joy when we see it!

    In verse 7 GOD was trying to show Peter that everything and everyone belongs to Him. And if He says its clean and good who are we to not obey His word.
  • Wanda
    Thank God for His grace and mercy. No matter what others think He loves us and He proves it. Thank you for being God!
  • Alex Thomas
    Thank you Jesus for your precious blood. Praise the Lord
  • Lilian
    We need the Holy Spirit every moment of our lives. For only the Holy Spirit can cleansed us and guide us into his heavenly manna the word of God. Thanks to Jesus for providing us with his manna. Jesus himself is the word of God. He have come to give us life. Thanks to Jesus for his precious blood that shed for us. Amen

    8 But I said, Not so, Lord: for nothing common or unclean hath at any time entered into my mouth.. the same also with Gods creation, specially human being. that is why Jesus said love your neighbor as yourself. saying Bad things to your neighbor it breaks the Heart of God. God is Love, the Kingdom of God are for those who believe and do His have been Cleansed by God, ...God Bless....

    Verse 7, the Lord was telling Peter that the spiritual laws had changed. The example of unclean animals that were now acceptable to eat is symbolic. Peter was growing in spiritual knowledge listening to the Lord showing the light of understanding that Gods love is unconditional towards all men. "Create in me a clean heart, O God. " - Psalms 51.10 That is what was happening to Peter, his heart was cleansed from bias against Gentiles. God is the Divine source of all life represented in the vision of the descending animals. Peter had thought that the kingdom of God was for Israel only but the Lord showed Peter that to promote harmony and peace in the world it is important to understand we are all members of God 's worldwide family. Peters spiritual identity was changed to accept that ALL men have the opportunity to be saved from sin. The understanding and compassion we give to others becomes our own. God 's grace, goodness and forgiveness is for all mankind not just for Israel. " There is one body and one Spirit...One God and Father of us all, who is above all and through all and in all. " - Ephesians 4.4-6

    It is amazing to see the way that the Holy Spirit began to direct the church with visions and definite signs to verify that they were genuine. He still does this for those who have received the baptism of the Holy spirit even today.

    Please explain Verse 7
  • Ebenezer kwasi frimpong for verse 26
    it shows that with that evangelist you can never be call christian, this is because Jesus Christ came to preach the sermon and because of what they did they were classify as Christ followers
  • Alex baroumes for verse 26
    The NT was written in Koini Greek English Bibles commentaries etc translated thru Greek Biblical Bible scholars to the English speaking world use Latin and or other non Greek words to define the words disciple witness and saints to name a few maligned words used in the present church world where s the scholarship
  • The disciples were called christain because they live their way of life accordinly to how jesus taught them My advice to we christain is we should not bear xtian by name only but by doing the will of God
  • Joseph rucker for verse 26
    I shall wear the name "Christian" well. I shall even wear it as a badge of honor in the name of Jesus, my Savior and Lord. Awesome is the name.

    My reading of Acts ch. 11 was a great blessing. I am reading through the NT in 31 days and using this website for all my reading of the scripture. What a wonderful beginning the church had. I am so grateful that the Holy Spirit is still here living the life of Christ through every surrendered believer. Wanting to fill the life of every believer that still habitually lives a self-dependent life. Praise Him for his goodness, patience and mercy in my lives and all who believe.

    Provided we seek the face of GOD for HIS leadership,HIS will to be done, and wait on HIM...HE will lead us and speak HIS words through us to those who will receive it. TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY!!!!!!!
  • Prophet
    From the beginning the Christ intended to include all people bringing them to His Father's kingdom-all who would listen. In Acts chapters 10 and 11 we see how the faithful are rewarded-'your prayers are answered' said the angel.
    Simon-Peter's vision is more the completion of His grand plan to continue spreading His message through the Disciples to all people-all who would listen.
    Today we are the receiptants and bare witness to the success of Peter's, Barnabas's, and Saul's all the Disciples great journey. Now we are all disciples answer the prayers of others and bring them The Word. You share the hope that is the Christ's love for all people-all who will listen.

    Really feel inspired and blest by the book of Acts
    Blessed be the name of the Lord our God
  • Tem gomez for verse 28
    concerning in the 1611 edition in this verse signified by the "spirit"
    while in the 1769 is "Spirit"
    is this a part of standardizing?
    i believe with out a doubt this is the Spirit of God that did signify and guide them into all the truth(John 16:13)some in the old testament like Zechariah 4:6 is no doubt that it is the Holy Spirit...which in those times the person of the Holy Spirit is silent.
  • Samuel
    By first birth came I by water; by being born again, came I by spirit.
  • B M Devitt
    We must bring to mind that Jesus never say's the word "Christians".Jesus also does give warning to Simon that Satan hath a desire to sift him through like wheat .Jesus also states that it is by the word's that he speaks they you must abide in and they shall Judge you. The gift Jesus offers is from God and it is the "living waters". We are by command told not be following sounds that you know not there origin ( good or evil ). We must be born of water and spirit ( John -3- )
