    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.

    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.

    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 Acts 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.

    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.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    James, I would like to add one more comment to the one that I have already submitted. The Roman church was a church that was professing holiness. All of the Books and epistles that are written by Paul are to saints of God. These people were already saints, Romans 1 7. True saints refer to people who have taken on the name of Jesus Christ. The only way you can take on the name of Jesus Christ is to do what Peter declared on the day of Pentecost.
  • James
    Part 2. Later after the Kingdom is rejected The Lord begins to go to the Gentiles, see Romans 1vs16 for why. The Gospel is to the Jew first then the Gentile. The apostles take up a collection for those Jews who sold all in early Acts see Romans 15vs 25 and 1 Cor 16vs 1thru3. The Lord got Peter straight on his doctrine and revealed the Gospel of the grace of God to Paul, see Eph chapter 3. Don 't go to hell in Acts chapter 2 when you can go to Heaven in Romans 10.
  • James
    Part 1 Those of you who get your plan of salvation out of Acts 2, be careful to rightly divide your Bible. The literal Kingdom is still being offered to the Jews until the rejection in Acts 7. Why dont you sell all you have like they did in vs 43 and 44? They were expecting the literal Kingdom to be set up see Acts 1 verse 6.
  • Stephen for verse 42
    Jesus spoke with his Apostles 40 day,after he rose from the dead,concerning the kingdom of God.After jesus went back to Heaven,he gave instructions to the Apostles through the Holy Ghost.Peter said,we have preached the gospel unto you,with the Holy Ghost sent down fron Heaven.

    Hello Dewey Jones I am very glad to hear that you know that there is one God that operates in three functions. It is a mystery to many but God is one being, 1 Timothy 3 16. In Jesus Christ dwelleth the fullness of the Godhead bodily. Praise be to Jesus Christ who is both our Lord and Savior.
  • Dewey jones
    Hello Karen, I was about to close my iPad when I saw your post. I thing and believe the Spirit of God, or Holy Spirit, or Holy Ghost are one and the same. Just as the Father, Son, and Ghost are the same God having three different functions. All three are one. The Word and Person of God. We know from the Bible that the Holy Ghost only came on men in the Old Testament like He shoke Sansome but after Jesus resurrection at the day of Pentercost God Spirit began to dwell inside men just as He did Jesus.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Karen Praise the Lord. Well it is true the Spirit of the Lord God and the Holy Ghost is one in the same spirit. The Holy Ghost is the Spirit of God. Ezekiel 36 27 And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statues, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. On the day of Pentecost and forward God did just that. Acts 2 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Ephesians 1 13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise. This scripture in Ephesians is talking about the Holy Ghost. Now this next scripture is dealing with the church of God that is already saved, 1 Corinthians 3 16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
  • Karen
    Please clarify this for me. I believe strongly in Acts 2 38. I can 't get my congregation to see that the holy ghost and holy spirit is different. The holy ghost is god 's spirit that he sent down on the day of Pentecost and the holy spirit is god himself. agree?
  • Minnie
    I love this Chapter. God loved us so much that he sent his son for life and for death. When you start sharing the love of someone you never seen and know he died and brought back too life and left again to leave us his spirit. Hallaylugha there is no other Love like it. Born to die
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 2 of 2 So tell me who was in the beginning? Who made the World? Who did not receive who? Who came in the flesh? The answer to all these questions is Jesus Christ. 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 . If I can say it like this, the scripture states it is a mystery that this took place, but it still took place. God came in the flesh. Who preached to the Gentiles? Who was received up into glory? The answer is Jesus Christ. AMEN.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 1 of 2 Hello James In the Old Testament God had many names and he appeared in many ways unto man. However, his true form no man could look upon him and live. God said it out of his own mouth, Exodus 33 20 And he said, Thou canst not see my face for there shall no man see me, and live . This is why he came in the form of Jesus Christ. He then sent back the Holy Ghost in his name. Then John 1 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God . Verse 10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not . Verse 11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not . 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 .
  • James
    Oneness theology teaches that God was in the mode of the Father in the Old Testament. God was seen in the OT not as a vision or a dream or an angel in the following verses Exodus 6 2 3 Gen. 19 24 Num. 12 6 8 . But, Jesus said no one has seen the Father John 6 46 . If they were seeing God Almighty Exodus 6 2 3 but it wasn 't the Father, then who was it?
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 5 of 5 Peter was the key apostle. He denied Christ, you know the story. He did not have the power to stand when adversity came his way. His flesh got in the way and he became weak. It was not until he was filled with the Holy Ghost that he was able to stand boldly on the day of Pentecost and declare who Jesus Christ was. This is why he gave them the answer Acts 2 36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord, and Christ . We can talk about the oneness of God all day. However, it is important that you get saved if you are not saved. Stay saved if you are saved. Hope and pray that you make it into Heaven. This is why you must do as Acts 2 38 tell us in order to be saved. Please read over in Acts 2 where I made extensive comments on this subject.
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 4 of 5 In John 14 8 to 10, Jesus acknowledges he is the Father. Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you and yet has thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works . The flesh is a house in which the spirit and soul resides. In 11 Corinthians 5 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation .
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Part 2 of 5 Jesus Christ has not lied. Satan is the father of lies. The fleshly body of Jesus Christ acknowledges the deity within. Jesus stated himself in John 10 30 I and my father are one . The scriptures clearly states that the God that made everything from the beginning, the creation, came in a fleshly body and dwelt among us. It clearly states that the God that said in the Old Testament to Moses, tell the people I AM have sent you is the same God that told the Jews that he was the I AM in the New Testament. This is why the Jews got so angry with Jesus Christ because he declared his divinity and they did not accept it, like so many today.

    I know the evangelist doesnt believe in the Tri Unity of God, Three in one and one in three and the one in the middle died for me, and the words from her posts eat as doth a canker. So surely the evangelist believes that Jesus was and is sinless. If so explain how HE said in John 5 37 that "the Father Himself which hath sent me, hath born witness of me. Now in the law it says in Deuteronomy 17 6 and 19 15 At the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established. This fact is also confirmed in John 8 16 17and vs 54 also in 2 Cor 13 1. So if Jesus is only one person, both as, the Father and the Son, He would be deceiving us and lying, thereby breaking the Law and sinning. If He is the Father then there is only one witness to His Diety. What He is saying is that He is one individual and the Father is another, making two witnesses. One God manifested in three persons. If the evangelist 's position is correct, then Jesus is a sinner and could not have died for your sins and mine and we are of all men most miserable.

    Hello Janice Gordon I am glad to know that you are researching. However, the scriptures are true. 1 John 5 7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost and these three are one . Notice the very last part of this scripture it states that all three are one being. There are no three separate beings in which to worship. All three are one. In Colossians 2 9 For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily . It does not say that Jesus Christ is a being in the Godhead. This is stating that within Jesus Christ being is the fullness of the Godhead bodily.
  • Janice gordon for verse 41
    This is a good answer but , still not very clear if that is what is meant.. Still investigating. Thank You janice
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    In the end there is no three beings in which you need to call on for help. All you have to call on is his name Jesus Christ because he is God manifested in the flesh. The Holy Ghost was sent back in his name. Therefore, the name of the Holy Ghost is Jesus Christ.
