  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Gordon Seawood, If we can agree that the church age began on the day of Pentecost and that the Bible does not lie then we have a foundation in which to build on. Jesus said it. Peter clarified it on the day of Pentecost what it took to be saved after the people asked a question. On that day after they heard what Peter said about three thousand souls was added to the church. If you continue to read throughout the book of Acts you will find no one that was baptized with the preacher saying over them while baptizing them Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. The preachers called on the name of the Lord Jesus. If Jesus truly meant for the preacher to say the words Father, Son, and Holy Ghost over the people while baptizing them, don 't you think that his disciples would have called those titles instead of calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ? Or at least it would have been written as such?

    Part 2 of 2 If you say that Peter was unlearned, I would like to believe that after the Holy Ghost has come into a person s life he teaches you all things. John 14 26 But the comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you . Peter made those comments to the multitude after he received power from on high, through the power of the Holy Ghost. So he was not mistaken, he was not uneducated, he spoke with boldness on that day declaring what it took to be saved.

    Part 1 of 2 Hello Wanda Bob, when I look at the Apostles I do not see uneducated men. Matthew was a Jew, a publican or Roman Tax Collector Mark the son of Mary of Jerusalem, John and Peter may have been fishermen, but this does not mean that they were unlearned, and Paul the key apostle to the Gentiles was very educated. He was a Learned Tentmaker, spoke many languages, his father was a Pharisee, Paul studied with Gamaliel a teacher of the law , and Paul kept the Law. Luke was a physician. He accompanied Paul on many of his journeys.
  • Wanda Bob for verse 7
    Most of disciples were uneducative simply it was a miracle to them found speaking different languages but in this we see that it was acommissioninng service for the dis ciples to go in world and Jesus was confirming mark 16 17 and Joel 2 28
  • Gordon Seawood for verse 38
    When Peter spoke those words he was referring to the authority of Jesus the Christ who authorized baptism in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. When the Roman soldiers would come they would declare that they had come in the name of Ceasar. In his authority. This is how they talked in those times. Put yourself in Peter 's shoes hiring the time of his life.

    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 Victor, This scripture pertains to us here in the 21st century because when you read verse 39 he continues talking For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call . The first part of that was to the Jews and their children. The later part of that same scripture is talking about all of us who are not Jews, but Gentiles. It did not have a number on it or a time limit. God is still calling people today, by way of people like myself who is spreading the true Word of God. Also the prophecy was spoken of in Joel 2 28 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 . Isaiah 28 11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people . These two prophecies were stated many years before the day of Pentecost came in Acts 2 38. On the day of Pentecost was when these prophecies were fulfilled. Then after this many was added to the church even today. Read the testimony under St. John 14.
  • Victor
    About what times is talking Peter in this chapter? Is he referring to 21st century time, too? Acts 2 14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words 15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day. 16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit and they shall prophesy
  • Vincent for verse 21
    Call on His name acknowledge that He died on the cross for our sins, having faith in your belief, have a solid relation with the father and being obedient to his word, If you love me you would obey me is what Jesus said. Salvation is a free gift nothing we can do to begin to pay Him for it, So if we simply believe he died on the cross for our transgressions and obey his word we will be saved and have our name written in the Lambs book of life! Easy cause we can not repay Him but we can obey and believe in what He said He did, He did! The devil will try and tell you that something that great is neither free or easy! God knows we can 't repay what his Son did so but if we just acknowledge what he did and thank Him for such a great salvation we will be saved.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Steve, you are absolutely correct. There is just one Jesus Christ. In Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily. His name is the name in which we are to be saved. 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. There is no three gods or beings there is just one. That one is Jesus Christ. He is the Alpha and Omega. He is the I AM.

    Hello to the writer of Baptism 's, Baptism alone does not save you. I believe I have stated that from the beginning. However, the correct baptism is very important to the salvation plan. According to the Word of God you are not complete without the correct baptism. You also need to repent and be filled with the Holy Ghost and speak in other tongues as the spirit of God give you utterance. You cannot get around Acts 2 38, even though people keep trying. This is the key in order to get into Heaven. If the baptism were not important then those 12 men in Acts 19 1 thru 7 would not have had to be rebaptized. If it was not important than the very first Gentiles would not have had to be baptized. But Peter declared that after Cornelius and his house had received the Holy Ghost just like them that Cornelius and his house were to be baptized, Acts Chapter 10. You have to have the correct Baptism there is no compromise with God 's salvation plan no matter who you are from the greatest to the smallest of us. God does not change to fit us we have to change to fit him.
  • Baptism for verse 38
    Water baptism will not save you though u are baptised in the name of Jesus. It is belief and repentance. let us not promote salvation by baptism a false meanse of getting into heaven.First comes being born again second baptism. it is an outward expression of the inward change. It is public declaration of what alreadytook place spiritually in a person 's. life

    Hello Anonymous, Verse 4 is talking about the first true Christians of the Church age. There was the apostles, Mary the mother of Jesus and the number was about 120 in that upper room waiting on the promise, Acts 1 13, 14, 15. Now after Peter gave them the answer on what it took to be saved Acts 2 38 you then read Acts 2 39 "For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call ". Acts 2 38 is for everyone. After these 120 were filled in the upper room in verse 4 In verse 41 more was added to the church that day, Verse 41 "Then they that gladly received his word were baptized and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls ". If you continue to read Acts, which is the beginning of the church age you will find many examples of people being filled with the Holy Ghost and being baptized in Jesus Christ name.

    Then you picked out Corinthians 14 38, however if you read Verses 37 and 39 you will get the whole picture. 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. But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant. Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues . In these passages of scriptures Paul was talking about the gifts of the spirit. This included the speaking in tongues as the spirit of God give utterance. He wanted to let everyone know that if they do not acknowledge what he has written then let him be ignorant, but he did not say to forbid anyone from speaking in tongues. Now as far as I know, I have steadfastly stood on the Word of God and have acknowledged both the baptism and the speaking with other tongues as the spirit of God give them utterance. Therefore, if you were directing this scripture to me then you are misdirecting because I acknowledge the Apostles doctrine without a shadow of a doubt. I believe in what Paul wrote.

    Hello James Let s talk about Titus 3. If you read up a little further you will find that Verse 9 But avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law for they are unprofitable and vain . There is nothing foolish about our conversation. We have not talked about anyone s genealogies in reference to other people , we are not having any contentions that I know of, I am strictly adhering to the Word of God, and we are definitely not discussing law of the Old Testament. So therefore Verse 11 does not apply here I would think.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Murali.R This is the third part. You are not going to like the answer. I do not want to offend anyone, but sometimes the truth is a hard pill to swallow. Now moving onto the scripture in 1 John 4 1 3, It is simply saying that if anyone comes and states that Jesus Christ was not both Lord and Christ, God manifested in the flesh he is of the spirit of the antichrist, which means the spirit of the devil. If you do not have Acts 2 38 then according to the word a person is not saved. It does not matter if this person is holding a position anywhere in the world. If a person have not repented, and been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of their sins, and they have not received the gift of the Holy Ghost with the evidence in speaking in other tongues as the spirit of God give utterance, a person or any person is not saved. Therefore,that person is leading people away from their inheritance. Because they are not telling people how to truly get saved.

    Part 2 Verse 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not . The answer is Jesus Christ. The Jews did not really accept him as the Messiah or as their God. Finally, Verse 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth . Now remember in Verse 1 it states that the Word was GOD. So then Jesus who was made flesh and dwelt among us was God manifested in the flesh.

    Hello Murali. R If you are asking me to explain 1 John 4 1 3, I will explain in three parts. First you have to understand who Jesus Christ is. He is God manifested in the flesh. He was the Word in the beginning. When you read in St. John Chapter 1 you will find this answer. Verse 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God . The Word is Jesus Christ. He was in the beginning, he was with God in the mind of God to create a fleshly body , and he was God himself. Verse 3 All things were made by him and without him was not anything made that was made . It states, when you read over in Genesis 1 1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth . It states in Verse 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not . My question to you is, Who was in the world? The answer is Jesus Christ.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    This is the fourth part This is also two fold message because the Jews considered the Gentiles heathens and unclean then when God filled them with the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the spirit gave them utterance, Peter would not have offered them the water. God had to break that prejudice cycle that Peter had in him in order to save the Gentiles. After you receive the Holy Ghost you are still a work in progress. You have to be molded into what God wants you to become.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    This is the third part Continuing with the response, in Acts 10 14 15. If you start with VERSE 1 of chapter 10 you will get the whole story. Peter was rebuked or corrected because he was a Jew that had never eaten anything unclean or common. Here God was preparing him to go into Cornelius house, a Gentile which Jews considered them unclean or heathens. They ate unclean and common food according to Jewish customs . If God had not told Peter in VERSE 15 And the voice spake him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common . He would not have gone to Cornelius house.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    This is the second part Then Jesus rebuked him saying, VERSE 23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan thou art an offence unto me for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men . Here when Peter was acting on emotion. He was not filled with the Holy Ghost to truly understand the purpose of Jesus having to go through this suffering. Peter also denied Christ three times before the Cock twice St. Mark 14 72. All of this took place before Peter was endured with power from on high. After he received the power, which is the Holy Ghost, he was able to stand. Also if you would read St. Matthew 16 verses 17 to 19, you will see that God blessed this same man that he later rebuked. In VERSE 23 this is like a father that is correcting his child.

    Hello James, Just as I thought my first and second response was to long therefore it did not get printed. So I am going to break it up into four parts. This is the first part When you read the passages of scriptures from verse 21 to 23 then you get the clear understanding of why Jesus rebuked Peter. In verse number 21 Jesus was predicting his sufferings and his coming glory. VERSE 21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day . Her Jesus was talking about his crucifixion, his death and that he would raise his body up on the third day. VERSE 22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him saying, Be it far from thee, Lord this shall not be unto thee . Here Peter having walked with him, seen what he had done, knowing the good in him, did not want to accept this fate that Jesus spoke about. Peter did not want to believe that this was to happen to Jesus. He forgot himself and took Jesus laid hands on him .

    James, I forgot to type out I John 4 1 3 "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus is come in the flesh is of God And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God and this is that spirit of antichrist, where of ye have heard that it should come and even now already is it in the world ". In St. John 1 14 "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth ". The Word is God manifested in the flesh.

    James, I tried to give you my e mail address in my last post after I responded to your last post. I hope that they get posted because a couple of them were kind of long. However, it would not let me send my e mail it stated something about "spam " mail. If you are successful in sending me yours I will respond. Have a blessed day.

    James, One more thing to further validate that baptism is essential to salvation St. Luke 16 15 "And he said unto them. Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be SAVED but he that believeth not shall be damned ". You have to have all three parts of Acts 2 38 in order to be saved. Jesus is God manifested in the flesh. I John 4 1 to 3. I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I will not waver on the foundation of salvation for anyone. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I am in the truth and teach the truth. There is one Lord, one faith, and one baptism.
