    You receive the Holy Spirit when you trust in Jesus for your salvation...you do not have to have the gift of speaking in tongues to be saved...that is a lie...which the word tongue translated would be language...they were speaking in another language and when the people heard them they were amazed ! It is not a requirement for salvation!!

    Hello Diamon A person needs to do a little more than just believe. The devils believe and tremble, James 2 19. A person have to follow Acts 2 38 in order to be saved. There is no way around it. Faith without works is dead. A person can believe but without works, following through with the plan of salvation, then they are still dead. If they die without putting on the name of Jesus Christ through repentance, water baptism, and God has not given them the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the spirit of God give utterance they are lost. If they do follow Acts 2 38 they still have to maintain a saved life.
  • Diamon for verse 21
    IF YOU CALL ON THE LORD IN CONFESS YOUR SINS, YOU SHALL BE SAVED AND WILL LIVE EVERLASTING LIFE WITH OUR LORD GOD.

    Hello Jacob The reason why Paul made this statement to the Corinthian church, because they were already saved. If you read Chapter 1 verses 1 thru 9. Then in verse 10 Paul is letting you know that he came to teach them because there were divisions amongst God s people. He came to teach them so that they can all speak the same. It is not that Paul did not believe in baptism it s just that his job at this time was to teach a people that were already saved and put them on the right track. Paul did believe in baptism. In Acts 19 1 thru 7 Paul himself rebaptized 12 men the correct way and they were filled with the Holy Ghost.

    Hello Tom Jack Because the scriptures say that there is only one. God is Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent. Jesus Christ is everywhere at the same time. He can perform many functions at the same time. There is no three. God is the Father, God is the Son, and God is the Holy Ghost and his name is Jesus Christ. There is only one being in the Godhead, Colossians 2 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily . There are not three beings in the Godhead in which we worship. He is Omniscient he sees all and knows all, Proverbs 15 3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good . 2 Chronicles 16 9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
  • Tom-Jack for verse 38
    The Trinity is composed of three personages God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. When one of Them is out front doing something the other two are involved in it in some way.

    Baptism saves no one. It only serves as a testimonial picture of the death, the burial, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ AFTER one has believed on Christ Acts 8 36 38 . Paul said in I Corinthians 1 17 that ". . . Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. " This "gospel " is defined by Paul in I Corinthians 15 1 4, and it does NOT include water baptism. The dying thief was not baptized, yet Jesus saved him Luke 23 42 43 , and John wrote that we are washed in the BLOOD of Christ Rev. 1 5 , not in the water. In fact, the saints in Heaven claim to have gotten there by the blood of Jesus Rev. 5 9 , not by water. By faith in the blood of Jesus Christ one is saved Rom. 3 25 . Water baptism only follows this faith as an outward step of obedience

    Hello Ar I would like to add to my comment. Our faith is rooted and grounded in the Apostles Doctrine. There are many religions throughout the world, but there is only one faith that the Bible recognizes and that is the Apostles Doctrine which teaches and belief in Acts 2 38 for salvation, Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh, Ephesians 4 One Lord, one faith, one baptism. Once you follow Acts 2 38 with the correct baptism you do not have to worry about what religion you should be in because you will be in the correct faith. Acts 14 22 Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. Even unto the Gentiles the faith was opened unto them, Acts 14 27.

    Hello Ar I would like to add another comment. I hope that it will get printed. There are many churches that started out and then something happened to them where they either changed the way they do things or a schism caused them to change the way they do things. For example, The Catholic Church used to Baptize actually submerged people in water. However, because of one Archbishop they changed the baptism to sprinkling which is nowhere to be found in the books of Acts. They still believe that baptism is correct they choose not to do it. The Catholics have graven images of Mary and seek her to talk to Jesus for them on their behalf concerning their sins. Salvation and forgiveness of sins do not come from Mary or through Mary. She had to get it like everyone else under this Dispensation of Grace. Salvation comes from Jesus Christ, 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 . Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh, 1 Timothy 3 16. He is the only one that can forgive us of our sins through repentance and the correct baptism. True repentance is a godly sorrow and will affect emotions 11 Corinthians 7 9 10. The correct Baptism brings about a remission or forgiveness or pardon of sins. There is no way around this promise.

    Hello Ar I hope that they print this to clarify what has been stated There was actually in 1914 the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World founded by J.J. Frazier. He was an oneness preacher. What happened was the following The second body resulted from a schism within the General Council of the Assemblies of God in 1916. That year the General council disapproved of the Oneness doctrine and adopted a Trinitarian Statement of Fundamental Truths. This forced a large minority of Pentecostal ministers and churches to withdraw from the Assemblies of God and form a new group based on Jesus Name principles . The PAW Pentecostal Assemblies of the World started out an oneness ministry, believing that Jesus Christ was God manifested in the flesh. However, some decided to change their belief and started the Trinitarian movement. Those who stayed with the truth continued the oneness preaching. I have been in the PAW for over 35 years. Does this information change what is written in the word of God? The answer is no. Jesus Christ is still God manifested in the flesh, 1 Timothy 3 16. In the end, you have to follow Acts 2 38 in order to be saved.

    comment on Mrs Robinsons Acts 2 remark A clarifying note to what This assembly believes is Qte In 1913 there was a great controversy issue in the Pentecostal Assemblies of the world. It referred to a new issue of water baptism. Until then people were baptized as Jesus said in Matthew 28 19 in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost Some Pentecostal assemblies cut themselves off the main assembly and started baptizing as Acts2 38 says. These people are known as Jesus only believers. Thank you I hope KJV will print this, unless they believe the sme thing as Mrs Robinson

    Hello Brother Spell I am Pentecostal Apostolic faith believer. We believe what happened on the day of Pentecost is for everyone under the Dispensation in which we live in now, that is the Grace Age. We strictly believe in the Apostles Doctrine. Ephesians 4 5 "One Lord, one faith, one baptism ". We believe what the Apostles wrote concerning the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe that in order to partake, be covered by his blood and be truly saved, you must be born again through water and spirit. You must follow Acts 2 38. Repentance is symbolic for death, baptism is symbolic for his burial, and being filled with the Holy Ghost, that only God can give himself, is symbolic for Jesus Christ resurrection. You have to have the correct baptism. When a preacher baptizes you in water and says I will indeed now baptize you in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. He did not call a name, because these are titles. No man on this Earth can baptize anybody with the Holy Ghost, no man. So this is a falsehood in which the Preacher states. The preacher must call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. I belong to the Pentecostal Assemblies of the World.

    Evangelist Robinson,what is your faith and what church do you go to.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello James I do not understand the correlation that you are making between Titus 3 10. Have I spoken something that is not written? The answer is no. Everything I have quoted has come from the word of God. I did not write the Book of Acts. Luke, one of the Apostles, wrote the Book of Acts. He recounted what Peter stated on the day of Pentecost. Peter response to those individuals on the day of Pentecost tells them how to be saved. I quoted exactly from the Bible what Jesus told Nicodemus about being born again. I have experienced Acts 2 38. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am in the truth. I know what I am speaking is the truth, because I have quoted directly from the word of God. I will pray for you as well that if you have not followed Acts 2 38 that you will.
  • James
    I see why Titus 3 10 is there now. I admit my sin now and confess it to the Lord. I will be praying for you.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Robert The water that is spoken of by Jesus in these scriptures are not talking about the birth water that we are in while being carried in our mother s womb. This water is the baptism that is spoken of in Acts 2 38. In John Chapter 3, Nicodemus already had asked the question, John 3 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter the second time into his mother s womb, and be born? Then Jesus answered Verses 5 thru 8. If you look at verse 6 Jesus made the distinction of what he was talking about, He said that which is born of flesh is flesh and that which is born of spirit is spirit. Flesh and blood will not enter into the kingdom of heaven this is why those who have taken on the name of Jesus Christ will be changed in the moment in the twinkling of an eye.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 3 of 3 In reference to 1 Corinthians 14 34 this scripture is not telling anybody not to speak in other tongues as the spirit give them utterance as stated in Acts 2 38. If I can say it like this, the women were being disruptive during the church assembly talking during service so Paul told them that the women should be silent during church service while someone else is speaking. If you read further down 1 Corinthians 14 39 Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues. This is referring to the prophesy of Isaiah 28 11 which leads us right back to Acts 2 38.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 2 of 3 In reference to Daniel 9 7 this is thought as prophetical book that goes hand in hand with the book Revelation with a lot of scholars. This scripture is referring to the Jews only. This has nothing to do with Acts 2 38. What does have to do with Acts 2 38 is Isiah 28 11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people. When you look at Acts 2 6 thru 11 you will see a word called Proselytes. If I can say it like this, these are people who were not Jewish who were either bought by Jews as slaves or converted into Judaism through faith, Acts 13 42 43. A Proselyte Jew, which was Gentiles, had to be circumcised of the ** just like the Jewish men, Exodus 12 48. Remember person who is not born naturally into the Jewish people are considered Gentiles.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 1 of 3 Hello James I was quoting Acts 2 39 when I was speaking of all that are afar off . In reference to 2 Corinthians 11 4, I am referring to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Acts 2 38 that is being stated out of the key Apostles mouth, Peter, he mentions Jesus Christ name in this salvation plan. Then if you go to Acts 4 12 it states Neither is there salvation in any other for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved . If you read Acts 4 10 you will see this is talking about Jesus Christ. So I am preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • James
    Also, what was the lady doing speaking in tongues in the assembly in the first place? See 1 Cor 14 34. Let your women keep silence in the chruches The context here is speaking with tongues or languages. Looks like it was a different spirit leading there 2 Cor 11 4.
  • James
    You freind was filled with a false spirit if it was Acts 2 38. See 2 Cor 11 4. The reference you used for To all that are afar off is a quote from Daniel 9 7. Ephesians wasn 't written yet at this time and Paul wasn 't saved yet. Those afar off and their children are the Jews of the dispersion who are represented at Pentecost by the list given in verses 6 11.
  • Robert
    Water in John 3 5 is explained in John 3 6. Water here means physical birth not salvation by baptism. You are born in the flesh and need to be born of the Spirit.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robisnon
    Hello Robert In addition to my comment that I sent yesterday I would like to add, you do not receive the Holy Ghost through water, you receive the Holy Ghost through true repentance. The water baptism is symbolic for Jesus Christ burial. The correct water baptism is for the remission of sins which is done in Jesus Christ name. Some people are filled with the Holy Ghost before getting the baptism. Some people, like that young lady I told you about, is filled after the water baptism. In the end, you have to have both in order to be saved.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Robert Recently there was a testimony posted by a young lady who went to a church that practice Acts 2 38 and she got rebaptized and she stated that God filled her with the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the spirit of God give utterance. When you read Acts 2 39 it states that "For the promise is unto you this means the Jews , and to your children this means their children , and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call this means everybody else who is not Jew this promise is for them to if they follow Acts 2 38 . God has not changed, people change, but God remains the same today, yesterday, and forever. You have to be born again through water and spirit.
  • James
    Amen brother Robert. If people could just get that, they would understand more than most Bible commentaries are teaching today.
  • Robert
    Nobody today has ever been saved by Acts 2. Nobody today receives the Holy Ghost by being baptized in water. Acts 2 is Jews celebrating a Jewish feast Pentecost, there are no christians anywhere in Act 2. Peter is preaching to Jews that have just killed their Messiah. Acts is a transitional book, that transitions from the gospels to the church age. There are four ways that people are saved in Acts Acts 2 38 jews in water,Acts 8 16 by laying on of hands,Acts 10 44 hearing the word and Acts 16 31 belief in Christ. We are saved like the Ethiopian eunuch. Belief in the Lord Jesus Christ and then are baptized. The Gospel for the Church Age is found in 1 Cor.15 1 4. Dispensed to Paul, Peter finally came to Paul 's teaching of grace, 2 Peter 3 15 16. More people get messed up in Matthew,Acts,and Hebrews more than any other books in the Bible. They are all transitional.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    I want to clarify something so that it is understood where I stand on giving. God only requires man to pay tithes and offering. The Bible, from what I have read, does not require you to sell everything you have and give it away. In the case of the Apostles and those with them on the day of Pentecost, they were rejoicing and celebrating their salvation. If I can say it like this they where in church celebrating and sharing what they had with them with those who did not have as much and when the celebration was over they went their separate ways to preach the gospel. Remember a lot of those people who where there on the day of Pentecost some came from a long way so therefore they were not selfish. If someone was hungry I am sure they did not let them starve to death. In the end they shared in their joy of salvation.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    I would like to make a correction in my last statement 11 4 14 6 52 pm. I had a typo error the word should be gospel instead of gossip.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    The choice they made to sell all they had and split it throughout the people was a good thing. They continued and praise the Lord. I remember when churches used to have dinners and support people in need. Some are still able to do this, but others are not, because people have lost their jobs and have little to no income. However, when their worship was over they went their separate ways teaching and preaching the gossip. Just think if all of those rich people who call themselves Christians would sell all they have or share what they have equally, like they did back then, there would not be anyone in need. Remember having a choice and being required to do something is different. I do not have anything to really sell and share, however what I do is pay my tithes and offering this is the only thing that God requires man to do. Have you sold everything and split it with others in need?
  • James
    Sell all you have like they did in Acts chapter 2 then. If one part of acts 2 is good for you then the rest is as well.
