    Part 1 of 2 Hello Jerry M. Leonard If you recall the conversation between Peter and Jesus Christ in Matthew 16 17 thru 19, Jesus told Peter that he would give him the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Acts 2 38 are those keys. A person has to repent, be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and be filled with the Holy Ghost speaking in other tongues as the spirit of God give utterance. This is the covenant that was spoken of in Isaiah 28 11 Joel 2 28 Jeremiah 31 33 and 34 Ezekiel 36 26 and 27.

    To Chatauna Robinson, What you don 't seem to understand is Acts 2, v.38 is the Gospel of the Kingdom to be set up on this Earth not the Gospel of Grace given to the Apostle Paul to get into Heaven. It was a Jewish Feast Day for Jews only and after Christ went back to Heaven it was the Holy Spirit calling for Christ 's Kingdom to be set up in Israel through Peter and the other Apostles. Read Acts Ch. 1 v.6. Right before Christ went back to Heaven Peter ask Christ was He going to set up His Kingdom at that time, meaning like it was when Solomon was ruling. Christ could not tell Peter any other answer except it 's not for you to know. Why because all of Israel had to accept Christ as their Messiah. That 's the reason Christ said it 's in the Father hands so to speak. Then if you read Acts Ch. 3, vs.19 thru 21 if the nation of Israel would have received Christ as their Messiah they would had the Kingdom on earth then but God the Father knew they would not.

    Hello Geraldene Leonard and Jacob Let me clarify something I posted before the 5 part answer I gave also. We are to teach Acts 2 38 under this dispensation which is the Grace Age. We are to teach about the rapture along with the other parts of the Bible. We are to teach about what is to come so that people will be warned about the tribulation. Because once the rapture takes place Acts 2 38 will no longer be an option for anyone to get saved. People will have to make a choice of either taking the mark of 666 or getting their head chopped off.

    Part 5 of 5 God is the only one that knows whether or not a person has truly repented then he gives out his gift. Samaria was a Jewish City. This is where some more Jews were filled with the Holy Ghost after Acts 2 38 was stated, Acts 8 14 thru 17. Then God had Philip meet the Eunuch and baptize him and he went on his way rejoicing. Paul who was filled with the Holy Ghost, Acts 9 18. Then you come to the first Gentiles, Acts 10 44 thru 48. I wrote more on this subject of baptism under John Chapter 4. There are 10 parts. Number 8 is out of sequence.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 4 of 5 On the day of Pentecost the Holy Ghost fell which was prophesied in Isaiah 28 11 Joel 2 28 and 29 this was what was spoken of in Jeremiah 31 33 and 34 remember his conversation is only with the Jews this time Gentiles were grafted in when he foretold of the New Covenant and Ezekiel 36 26 and 27. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

    Part 3 of 5 How we know that it was Jews that the Holy Ghost fell on was because this was the Jewish festival of Shavuoth. This was a time when Jerusalem would have been filled with Jews from all the surrounding lands who had come with great anticipation to meet with the Lord the meaning of the appointed times listed in Leviticus 23 Jewish people of that time had a keen sense of this. Also there were some Gentiles there, strangers from Rome and proselytes a proselytes are Jewish converts noun a person newly converted to a religious faith or sect a convert, esp. a gentile converted to Judaism.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 2 of 5 The first Jews that were saved were those in the upper room. Then Peter spoke they were pricked in their hearts symbolizing repentance, it touched their hearts, Acts 2 37. Then they were baptized and three thousand were added to the church, Act 2 41. The church of God is made up of true believers that have followed Acts 2 38. So when the scripture states that three thousand souls were added one can deduce that they were filled with the Holy Ghost. Then when you look at Acts 2 47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. Remember a person is counted saved once they follow Acts 2 38.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 1 of 5 Hello Geraldene Leonard I have never stated that you had to be baptized first before receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. God judges the heart. Therefore, a person can repent either before the baptism or after the baptism. The point is that God is the only one that can give this gift to a person. Once you have truly repented the gift is given. God cannot lie, Hebrews 6 18. The significance is that baptism and the infilling of the Holy Ghost is the water and spirit that you must be born again in order to get into the kingdom of heaven. This is what Jesus Christ spoke about to Nicodemus.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Geraldene Leonard and Jacob I would like to address the first part about Paul. Paul did try to go unto the Jews first after his conversion. However, because Paul had a reputation of killing Jews the Jews rejected Paul and sought to kill him, Acts 9 17 thru 30. Then let s fast forward, Paul then tried again with the Jews. They followed him at first then they became envious because of the multitude that followed Paul the next day. They rejected Paul and he then turned his attention to the Gentiles, Acts 13 42 thru 47. God gave Paul to the Gentiles to teach them and bring them into the fold, Acts 13 47. Verse 47 is very significant because we are to teach what the Apostles, especially Paul, until the ends of the earth. The end of the earth has not happened yet therefore Acts 2 38 is still the path to salvation.

    Chatauna Robinson Your comments on 12 14 2014 10 40 and 10 33 am. You say the Holy Spirit fell on the Jews in Acts 2,38. You have to show me where that at because they had to repent and be baptize first before the Holy Spirit came on those Jews. At Cornelius house the Holy Spirit fell on the Gentiles when they heard Peter 's words in Acts Ch. 10, 43 then the Gentiles receive the remission for sins. Notice it doesn 't say anything about repenting but Peter did ask should we not baptize them.
  • Geraldene Leonard
    To Brethren Jacob 's ACTS 2,38 12 19 2014 3 12 PM. COMMENT Amen, Peter 's key open the door for the Church with Cornelius the first Gentile but the Apostle Paul was given the Gospel of Grace to the Gentile and Jews later. Read Eph. Ch. 3 v.2.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Jacob The prophesy concerning Acts 2 38 is actually found in Isaiah 28 11 "For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people ". Then it is stated in Joel 2 28 and 29 "And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. It was repeated by Peter in Acts 2 16 thru 18. The Gentiles in Acts 10 were baptized in the name of the LORD, Acts 10 48. It is the same baptism. During this Grace Age in order to be saved a person has to follow Acts 2 38.
  • Jacob
    Many will be in Hell for allowing the Devil to deceive them on this verse. Acts transitions from the law to grace. Watch out for those who stay in verse 38. The same Peter who preached this message to Jews verse 5, on the day of Petecost verse 1, which is a Jewish feast, see Lev 23 15 16, not an experience, is the same Peter that was shown by God in Acts 10 the Gentiles were to receive the Spirit by faith without baptism see verse 47. And this doctrine was established in Acts 15 and Peter know it, see vs 9. Water baptism especially Jewish water baptism will only get you wet.

  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Geraldene Leonard In Luke 7 29 and 30. John the Baptist was a forerunner for Jesus Christ. He verily baptized saying to the people that they should believe on him that should come after him. However, after the Holy Ghost fell on the Day of Pentecost and Peter stood up and declared what it took to be saved then from that point up until now and until the rapture takes place people have to follow Acts 2 38 to be saved. There was 12 men who were baptized by John the Baptist who lived after the Holy Ghost fell that had to be rebaptized correctly. So Paul baptized them in Jesus name and when he laid his hands on them they were filled with the Holy Ghost and spake with tongues, Acts 19 1 through 7.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Geraldene Leonard In addition to my comment, when you read Mark 16 you have to read the whole thing. This is called The Great Commission. It starts from verse 15 to 18. Jesus Christ states this statement before he is ascended up into heaven. Jesus Christ is talking in future tense. How we know he is talking in future tense is because in verse 17 he states, "they shall speak with new tongues ". The outpouring of the Holy Ghost had not fell yet. It did not fall until on the Day of Pentecost which is noted in Acts 2.
  • Evangleist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Geraldene Leonard I do not recall ever telling anyone that while Jesus Christ was walking the Earth that they had to be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. I have always stated and maintained that you have to have Acts 2 38 now that we are under the Grace Age. The same comment that I made to you about the thief I made to someone else earlier in postings. I do not believe I stated in this posting 12 13 14 9 36 pm under here that you had to be baptized during the Law. Acts 2 38 came after Jesus Christ ascended into heaven. Acts 2 38 came after the Holy Ghost fell on the day of Pentecost. Also I have also pointed out Acts 19 1 thru 7 where 12 men who were baptized by John the Baptist under the Law was rebaptized under Grace by Paul with the correct baptism.
  • Geraldene Leonard
    Hello Robinson, I know Christ did not lie to the thief. So if you had to be baptized while Christ was fulfilling the law before the Crucifixion as you said and that 's true and you can find that in Mark Ch.16 V. 16 also in Luke Ch. 7 Vs. 29,30. Then you tell me why you 're telling everyone if it 's Grace after the Cross WHY you 're telling everyone how to be baptized in Acts Ch. 2 V.38? I 'm sure anyone who looks back through your comments will find I 'm telling the truth.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 2 of 2 If a thief today does not repent and change his wicked ways and does not follow Acts 2 38 and he dies still in the sin of thievery he is not going to heaven. Deuteronomy 25 16 For all that do such things, and all that do unrighteously, are an abomination unto the LORD thy God. In the scriptures you will further find more things that God hat. 1 Corinthians 6 9 10 Know ye not that unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. These are just a few of many sins and things that God does not like.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 1 of 2 Hello Geraldene Leonard No, Jesus did not lie to the thief. When Jesus walked this Earth he was in the dispensation of the Law, Romans 10 4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth. The Grace Dispensation did not happen until after the Holy Ghost fell on the day of Pentecost. The thief did not have to speak in tongues as the spirit of God give utterance because there was no outpouring of the Holy Ghost during this time because Jesus had not ascended into heaven yet. However, now that we are up under the grace age, you must have it like Acts 2 38 says.
  • Geraldene Leonard
    If baptism is so essential to salvation how did the thief that died with Christ on the cross get into paradise with Christ before Christ set the captive believers free before taking them with Him into Heaven? I 'm glad I 'm not adding anything except what Christ did for me on that old rugged Cross, His Death, Blood and Resurrection for all my sins. Christ took my place. Amen and Halleluiah.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello M. Shipton I am glad that you are saved. Continue in the walk because we do not have long to be here. I do not know, neither does anyone else know exactly when Jesus will return, but we know it is soon. It is closer than when we first believed, "Romans 13 11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed . God time is not our time.
  • M Shipton for verse 38
    I was raised in a non apostolic church and followed Romans 10 9 8 fully believing this doctrine but after repenting numerous times I stil knew I was not saved. Most people believe in God but do they truly seek him or believe others. Isaiah 28 9 11 teaches that we must view the entire bible abd that God will speak through us with new tonhues but many wont see. I praise Jesus for allowing me find salvation through obeying Acts 2 38 and pray in his name that others will also find him and notice that in Romans 6 the church had followed the Acts doctrine and where alreadt saved.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Ron This remission of sin that is spoken of here is twofold. One it is forgiveness for all the sin that you have committed up to that point of following Acts 2 38. Man may not forgive but God does. Two it is forgiveness for sin you did not have anything to do with that was caused by Adam when he sinned in the Garden of Eden. Romans 5 12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned In both cases this sin will not be remembered anymore, Isaiah 43 25 and Hebrews 8 12. Now does this mean that you will not get in trouble for committing sin after this? No, it does not. Now that you have gotten forgiveness from the original sin that Adam did and the sins you have committed you should make every effort not to sin again or go back into what you were doing before you got forgiveness.
  • Ron
    Remission is only temporary
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Mario You are absolutely correct. There is one name Jesus Christ. He is God manifested in the flesh. Jesus Christ said it, Peter clarified it on the day of Pentecost, and the Apostles carried it out. People must be born again of water and spirit in order to enter into the kingdom of heaven. Acts 4 12 "Neither is there salvation in any other for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
  • Mario for verse 38
    Now The Question Was "Men And Brethren, What Shall We Do ? " Peter 's Answer Was Clear And Said "Repent, and be Baptized In The Name of Jesus Christ for the remission Of Sins, and Ye Shal Receive the gift Of The holy ghost " The Answer Is Clear . Another Thing I Would Like To Comment On Is This Matthew 28 19 "Go ye Therefore, and teach all nations baptizing them in the Name "not names " Of The Father , and of the son and of the holy ghost " What Is The Name Of the Father ? Jesus What Is the Name Of The Son Jesus And What Is The Name Of The Holy Ghost ? Jesus. In The Name Of Jesus Christ . One More Thing We Where Created In God 's Image ... Now When I Look In The Mirror I Only See One Not Three . One God And His Name Is Jesus Christ .

    Hello Jerry M. Leonard The word seal may mean the same however, it is referring to two different seals. In Romans 4 11 it is referring to in Abraham day when the seal of the righteousness was sealed with the circumcising of the young males. The seal in Revelation 7 2 is referring to the seal of God placed on the foreheads of the 144,000 out of the 12 tribes of the Jews.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 2 of 2 Also when a preacher says over a person while baptizing them that he is baptizing that person in the Holy Ghost, he stated a lie. No man or woman can give, or baptize, or impart to another person the gift of the Holy Ghost. This is a gift that comes directly from God. He is the only one that can give the Holy Ghost which is his spirit.
