    Hello Sonny Also, when you say the trinity in terms of worshiping three different beings there is no trinity. There is not three in the Godhead bodily. There is only one that holds all three positions or titles and his name is Jesus Christ. Colossians 2 9 "For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 1 Timothy 3 16 " And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

    Hello Sonny Let me clarify. It was not wind. It was sound that came through as a rushing mighty wind. The point I was trying to convey to Jerry that it was not vapor that was spoken of in the description of the Holy Ghost. You cannot see sound and you cannot see wind this is the comparison I was trying to make. Also, if God can make fire that does not consume, then he can make wind that does not blow everything away. I just believe that God can do anything, but fail. However, whether it was sound or sounds that came in like a rushing mighty wind or wind itself, the point is that the Holy Ghost is very real and you need it in order to get out of here.

    Part 3 of 3 The baptism is so important that in Acts 19 1 7 these 12 men had to be rebaptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Jesus said it Peter clarified it on the day of Pentecost, Acts 2 38, the Apostles carried it out. Even Paul who is the Gentiles Apostle baptized Acts 19 1 thru 7. Baptism is very important and part of the salvation plan.

    Part 2 of 3 Colossians 3 17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. The baptism means to submerge in water. The Greek word baptizo means to dip or to plunge. The symbolic meaning of the baptism is the burial. There are many examples of this throughout the Book of Acts.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 1 of 3 Hello Joe This scripture sums it up James 2 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Baptism is not only a work but a deed as well. The word work means activity involving mental or physical effort done in order to achieve a purpose or result. You make up your mind to follow Acts 2 38. You are putting for a physical effort to get the job done by being submerged in water according to the scriptures. The word deed means something that is done, an act or action.
  • Acts 2 38 does not say that baptism will save your soul..there are not different ways of salvation. In the Old and New testament times it has always been by Faith .. and since Baptism is a work something we do ,, we ARE NOT saved by works ..a work robs God of his Glory ,, God would owe us salvation if it was by Baptism .
  • Sonny for verse 2
    So what do I think? Was there really a great "physical " wind the literally blew through the room turning over plates, bowls maybe tables? Did it blow curtains and clothing? Did it mess up the women 's hair? Well, maybe. But really I think vs 2 captures an idea of the force of the Holy Spirit. The cleansing of all unrighteousness that may have previously inhabited that area even though they were disciples. When the Holy Spirit moves, there is no room for the demonic. I think it also represents the fact that the Holy Spirit it just that, our Holy "Spirit ". The binding Spirit of the Trinity that also binds us together with Jesus as He is bound to our Father. It is the picture of the force of the Spiritual wind cleansing the air, bringing in the Power of the gifts of the Spirit and yet the coolness of a peaceful breeze that follows as we rest in His wings. John 3 3 talks of how we can hear the wind but have no idea where it comes from or where its going, we just no that it is. This too is our call in believing the movement of the Holy Spirit. We can feel Him, hear Him and be directed by Him even though we cannot see Him. Nor do we know where He has just come from or where we are going at that minute, we still know that He is there. Not just with power, but with peace.

    Part 3 of 3 The 144,000 are men and women who did not take the mark of the beast. These are individuals taken out of every tribe of Israel not the Gentile nations. If you go to Revelation 7 4 thru 8 you will find that each tribe of Israel 12,000 was taken out of them this adds up to the 144,000. These individuals were sealed of God in their foreheads by the angels. All of this is after the rapture. There is no one walking around now with the seal of God in the foreheads, Revelation 7 3. Those who have followed Acts 2 38 are circumcised in their heart. We are waiting for the rapture. We will not go through the wrath that is to come, 1 Thessalonians 1 10.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 2 of 3 However, the grace and mercy that we know now will not be here during the tribulation. See right now a person just have to follow Acts 2 38 without losing their natural life. However, during the tribulation period you will be given two choices you either take the mark of the beast, which is 666, in order to buy and sell, Revelation 13 17 or you will have to have your head chopped off.

    Part 1 of 3 Hello Jerry M. Leonard I do not understand what you are talking about blood, fire, and vapor? There is no blood mentioned in the description of the Holy Ghost fallen that day. Not unless I missed something. It states like as of fire. This does not mean that it was a consuming fire like during the tribulation. The fire in the tribulation will destroy both heaven and earth. The scripture does not say that the Holy Ghost was vapor. It states that a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind and it filled all house where they were sitting. You can see vapor, like steam. You cannot see wind unless it is moving trees, dust, or debris.

    Hello Evangelist Chatauna Robinson comment 12 3 2014, 6 15 am...Yes I know the Holy Spirit came down to Peter and the others at Pentecost, Peter and Paul had Visions you can say, plus a few other things but the blood and fire and vapor does plys to the Tribulation and I think you know that, so it was then and will Come again a little different. I 've been tough this for 40 years and I 've been tough the Holy Spirit will be taken out. But when you say there is no grace in the Tribulation you need to read Revelation Ch. 7 Vs.13 and 14. When I was saved some 40 years ago I was seal with the Holy Spirit. I can 't think of the Chapter right now but I think you know it. The 144,000 is sealed and that 's where the Holy Spirit is then.

    Hello Jerry M. Leonard If you read the scripture right above that Acts 2 16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel The next scripture Acts 2 17 is repeating what the prophet Joel stated in Joel 2 28 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 The prophesy that was stated in Joel came to past on the Day of Pentecost and it is still in action today. The spirit of the Lord as we know it today will be taken out of the Earth when the rapture takes place. There will be no more grace and no mercy.
  • Jerry M. Leonard
    Hello Evangelist Chatauna comment 12 02 2014 3 06 am... Answering your statement on Acts Ch. 2 V. 17 and Joel 2, 28 refer to the same but in Acts 2, 17. The first sentence says it Shall come to pass in the last days that 's speaking of the great Tribulation. Then God says I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh. Then if you read verse 19 show wonders in heaven above and signs in earth beneath. It has no meaning to Acts 2, 38 or the Church. But it will when the 144000 Jews goes all over the world to all flesh if you meaning Gentiles.

    Part 2 of 2 On April 6, 1906 and on through 1915 there was a fervent filling of the Holy Ghost on Azusa Street in Los Angeles, California. The revival was characterized by ecstatic spiritual experiences accompanied by miracles, dramatic worship services, speaking in tongues, and inter racial mingling. The participants were criticized by the secular media and Christian theologians for behaviors considered to be outrageous and unorthodox, especially at the time. Today, the revival is considered by historians to be the primary catalyst for the spread of Pentecostalism in the 20th century . Wikipedia, Los Angeles Journal, and Enrichment Journal

    Part 1 of 2 Hello Jerry M. Leonard If the Gentiles were not to be saved then or now why would God make it a point for the writer to write the experience of Cornelius and his house having received the Holy Ghost like Peter and them on the day of Pentecost? Paul even stated he is the Gentiles Apostle, 2 Timothy 1 11. We follow and read his teachings. He baptized and laid hands on 12 men Acts 19 1 thru 7. He also told the Corinthian church, 1 Corinthians 14 39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.

    Hello Evangelist Chatauna Robison your comment on 12 01 2014,7 04 AM... to Jerry M. Leonard, I just read it, where you said to your children this is to Jewish children, TRUE. But all that are afar off you spoke of is not Gentiles it 's those Jews great, great and on grandchildren that have grown up the ones that their grandfathers stayed in Babylon in 536 B.C. that 's coming to the Pentecost Feast in around 34 A.D. As I said in another coming comment we 're not getting anyJwhere.

    Hello Jerry M. Leonard Joel 2 28 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 When you read Acts 2 17 it quotes Joel. However, the importance of this scripture is that it states ALL FLESH . This does not mean some flesh or just the Jewish flesh. So when Peter clarified it in Acts 2 39 this lets you know who Joel, the prophet, was speaking of.

    Hello Silungih, The first of Acts Ch. 2 verse 21 that you didn 't quote by the prophet Joel says, and it shall come to pass, well that 's speaking of Gentiles that would be saved later. Read Romans Ch. 1, verse 16 says salvation is for every one who believes for the Jews first and for the Greek. Meaning Gentiles would be saved later and that would be through the Apostle Paul 's Gospel of the Grace of the Cross. May God bless you.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Jerry M. Leonard When Jesus told Peter in Matthew 16 19 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven . Peter stated those keys on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 2 38. Then he stated in Acts 2 39 For the promise is unto you this is to the Jews , and to your children this is to the Jewish children , and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call this is to the Gentiles . The first Gentile to follow this is Cornelius and his house. This is a witness to what Peter spoke into existence on that day. It did not just stop there. It continues today. I spoke with a minister who stated she laid her hands on someone and they received the Holy Ghost. It is very real.

    Hello Rocking Robin as for Acts 2,38 and saving sinners you better bet it was for the whole Nation of Israel was going to be lost read Matt. Ch. 8 v. 12. Except for Peter, James, John and rest of the Apostles plus the 70 including all the others that believed Jesus Christ was the Messiah, the Son of Living God. They are called the elect. If you Read Matt. Ch. 16 v. 19 Peter would be given the keys to get into Heaven because the nation of Israel was going to reject Christ as their Messiah to have their kingdom on earth. Back to Peter and the keys the first key was the Holy Spirit coming down at Pentecost. The second key was Peter going to the first Gentiles, Cornelius and his house whole being saved. Notice the Holy Spirit fell on these Gentiles, no laying of hands because Paul at the time was out in the Arabian desert being taught or prepped the Gospel of Grace of God by Jesus Christ Himself. Acts 2,38 had nothing at the time to do with the Gentiles.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Siungile Mlilo The word whosoever backs up with Peter s statement in Acts 2 39. This is a promise to everyone, not just the Jews. See it does not just stop with calling on his name. It does not stop with just believing in your heart. Because if it did then the author, who is Luke, would not have written what Peter stated on the day of Pentecost in verse number 38. This is the salvation plan under this Dispensation of Grace. Everybody who hopes to be saved must follow Acts 2 38.
  • Silungile Mlilo for verse 21
    The word whosoever is inclusive of everyone, which means that despite all the sins that we can commit in this earth when we decide to repent and call upon the name of the Lord, we shall be saved because it is a strong tower and those that run to him are safe. John 3 16 also indicates that 'whosoever believes in Him shall be saved. ' This includes you and me and is regardless of creed, colour or nation
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Rev. Rob Acts 2 38 is really for the sinners. The only thing that the Bible is telling the sinner is to get saved according to Acts 2 38. Then after you get saved they you are to live according to the word of God. You cannot clean a fish before you catch it, therefore for a sinner to live a clean life and still not have the salvation plan then when they die or when the rapture takes place they are still lost. They will not go up when the rapture takes place. If you read Acts Chapter 10 if I can say it like this Cornelius and his house were Gentiles, sinners, when Peter talked to them they were filled with the Holy Ghost and were baptized.
  • Jerry M. Leonard
    To give people that read this comment my understanding on the two comments what I have written about Acts 2:38. We 'll start with the Jews of Israel going into captivity up in Babylon in 606 B.C. and after 70 years their return to Israel. I don 't think it was but about 40,000 Jews returned to Israel. Leaving no telling how many thousands stayed in Babylon because after 70 years they begin to like it there. So after 600 years to the day of Pentecost just how many Jews do you think wound up in France, England, Spain and over the world after 600 years? How many of those Jews do you think did not go back to Israel for the Pentecost Feast? Then after 600 years in a foreign country you don 't think these Jews did not learn their country 's language. There were no Gentiles there believe me they hated each like cats and dogs. If there was one there he may be a proselyte converted over to Judaism. So when Peter preached on the day of Pentecost in Hebrew all those Jews from other countries heard him in their language. I think you can figure the rest for yourself.

  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Joni G. The reason why people are not being filled with the Holy Ghost is because they truly have not let go of the world in their heart. God looks at the heart of everyone. Repentance is a godly sorrow that will affect emotions, 2 Corinthians 7 9 and 10. When God looks at the heart and sees that a person is truly repented then there is a circumcision of the heart pricked in the heart this prompts a true repentance of emotion, Romans 2 29, Colossians 2 11, Acts 2 37. God has not changed. He is still pouring out his spirit upon all flesh. When God does not fill the people then they start making up all kind of stories to excuse why they did not get it. However, the simple truth is that they have not truly repented in their heart. One thing God cannot do and that is lie. His word is the truth. Therefore, when Peter stated on the day of Pentecost that the promise is for everyone, Acts 2 39 God still honors that today.

    Part 4 of 4 What makes everything work is the name of Jesus Christ. His name is power. Isaiah 53 5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities the chastisement of our peace was upon him and with his stripes we are healed. This scripture does not say that you have to have the Holy Ghost in order to be healed. However, you may look at it this still does not negate the fact that when a person truly receives the gift of the Holy Ghost that they do speak in other tongues as the spirit of God gives utterance. The point of Acts 2 39 is that not only is it speaking to the Jews but to the Gentiles as well. There is no time limit or year in which this promise is to end. The only thing we do know is that when the rapture takes place the Grace Age will end. We do not know when the rapture will take place.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 3 of 4 Miracles happen every day somewhere in the world to many people. I have experienced myself miracles starting with me and my family. I have heard of miracles happening to other people. I never stated that you have to have the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the spirit of God give utterance in order to receive a miracle from God. 1 Corinthians 12 9 To another faith by the same Spirit to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit What this scripture is saying is that there are some people whom God have given the gift of healing. This is their gift. Gifts come without repentance, Romans 11 29.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 2 of 4 You compared me to Priscilla. We can deduce that Priscilla was a true Christian. Paul took them with him on his journey. Also Paul told the Roman church to greet them, Romans 16 3 Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus We can deduce that Paul being a true believer would not send anyone and call them his helper unless they too were true believers. They even had a church in their home, 1 Corinthians 16 19 The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house. So I think I am in good company. They even expounded to Apollos the way of God more perfectly.
