    This is the promise being fulfilled that Jesus Christ gave to his disciples in Acts 1 8. The promise is still available to us today if we will accept it. We must be born again according to Jesus Christ given to Nicodemus in John 3 3,5. We must repent, baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of our sins,and we shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. This is the fulfilment of the new covenant that Jesus Christ came to give his life 's precious pure blood for. This promise is for all people who have ears to hear it. .
  • Dear Victoria, God loves you! God loves His children. God is Love. the perfect Love that casts out fear. The dreams you describe are nightmares engendered by fear. God 's Word tells us "Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father 's good pleasure to give you the kingdom " Luke 12 32 KJV A prophet is a spiritual seer. Seeing through the material appearance of things, to the spiritual meaning. God has good news for us. For the world And the young people who are open to God 's gifts and messages will share them. They will be the prophets, in speaking, singing, etc. If what you hear or dream reflects God 's true nature of mercy, goodness, grace, love, forgiveness, comfort, peace, etc then you are hearing God and a true message of peace and reassurance. if not, dear one, read Ps 23, 139, 91 and also 46.

    This chapter is the beginning of the outpouring of the Holy Ghost as was spoken of by Joel. Jesus in Jn3 3 3 5 spoke of being born of water and spirit. When you are baptized in Jesus Name then the old man or that body of sin has been re missed and destroyed. You arise in the newness of life. Then God means to fill you full of his spirit so we can resist sin, and have power to live for him! That is what 's occurring here. also Act 8 10 19 etc.

    The whole chapter two of Acts is what Jesus told His disciples to wait for The Holy Spirit comes and baptizes those who were present and that is the day the church is established For the first time Peter gets up and preaches without fear As Joel has prophesied in chapter two verse 29 the Lord s spirit will be poured out onto all believers please read this verse which refers to end times which we believe is our time The ones that will be scared are not real believers they will leave the church but those Who have strong belief in the Lord s promise will wait for His coming as He PROMISED God bless you all
  • Marion for verse 17
    I think he is telling you something Maybe even warning you To stand strong in him now and continue But as a child of God we our going to see great things some that would scare the hell out of most The things HE gives us our great and powerful and leave an Impression
  • Pioneer1958 for verse 31
    This verse is strictly saying that Jesus was in hell true but the word hell does not mean a firey pit of torment it simply means grave of mankind which in this that Jesus and like others are in a deep sleep Jesus was in a deep sleep and then he was ressurected and anyone who has died will not remain there forever Anyone who think that Jehovah God would let his Son Jesus Christ and all mankind suffer in torment then they do not know our Grand Creator For he is a God of love

  • Reference to Toni s comments about Jesus not being God 1st Timothy 3 16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godilness 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 And there is only one individual this refers to the man Christ Jesus HE is and always will be the true living God Amen
  • First off I give God all the glory and praise for who I am I was baptize according to Acts 2 38 and have received the precious gift of the Holy Ghost When Jesus gave commandment to his Apostles go ye therefore and teach all nations baptizing them in the NAME of the Father and of the son and of the Holy Ghost Take a look at the first words in the NAME which is JESUS Father son and Holy Ghost is not HIS name those are titles All throughout scripture it was written of a child being born to a virgin and his name is Jesus John 5 39 says search the scriptures for in them ye think ye have eternal life God Bless
  • Victoria for verse 17
    Well, the reason i even researched this is because i keep having dreams of the end of the world. I am 21 and it started when i was about 18 and hasn't really stopped since then. They can vary of the "reason" the world is ending. But the most recent years I've been dreaming of God coming back, and being angry with everyone.In my dreams there are people that are just rejecting him and i can't always remember exactly what happens all i know is that God is sad and angry at the same time.Its almost like i felt how he felt for just a moment. Some times the dreams are horrible and ill think about them during the day. I tell my boyfriend about them which helps,. But i can't help but think. Is God revealing these things to me? or am i just um how do you say, tripping? lol
  • Thapelo Hanyane for verse 38
    I believe God is His own interpreter so brethren let's have respect for God's word...If u read Acts 2:38 its clear Peter received relation by God's Spirit that baptism must be in da name of da Lord Jesus Christ...
  • J w a for verse 38
    we need to stop trying to save everyone some are lost an you can't help them stop baptizing take the BRIDE in perfection those are the ones JESUS is coming for time for replants are over harvest is ready
  • KJB
    I'm sure you are a nice guy but "no one is good, no not one." So if you are trusting anything else (water, tongues, church attandance, etc.) besides CHRIST to get you to Heaven, you are going to HELL sir. Tongues couldn't save a toadfrog. (Pr 25:14) Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain. (Jer 23:31) Behold, I am against the prophets, saith the LORD, that use their TONGUES, and say, He saith. (James 1:26) If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his TONGUE, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain. (1 Cor1:22) "For the Jews require a sign," (1 Cor 14:22) "Wherefore TONGUES are for a sign," (Matt 12:39) "An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a SIGN!!!!! (Rev 16:13) And I saw three unclean spirits like FROGS come out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet (remember what you read in Jeremiah). A frog catches his prey with his tongue. "Be not deceived!" Amen.
  • Chaz
    Something indeed has ocurred. the fact that we are born with the Adamic nature or that sin nature that is a part of all of our beings prior to God's intervention in our lives. Prior to finding God in repentence, being baptized in Jesus Name for the remission of sins and receiving the Holy Ghost evidenced by speaking in other tounges as the spirit gives the utterence, No it didn't say recite after me sinners's prayer or shake the preacher's hand Acts 2:38 is God's plan! Until we obey God's plan of salvation THERE IS INDEED A SOMETHING THAT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED PROBLEM! Hope it helps.
  • Gods word says
    Jesus is God. There is more evidence for this than you are sitting there reading this. (1 Tim 3:16) "And without controversy great is the mystery of goldiness:GOD was manifest in the flesh," This passage is speaking of Jesus who is GOD in the flesh. (Phil 2:6) Who being in the form of GOD, thought it not robbery to be EQUAL WITH GOD: See (John 1:1) In the beginning was the WORD, and the Word was with GOD, and the WORD WAS GOD!!! verse 14 " And the WORD was made FLESH, and dwelt among us, Woooo can't beat that. Jesus is GOD my friend. The name of the Lord is the name of the Godhead(Trinity) (Acts 17:29,Rom 1:20, Col 2:9). These verses are left out of the new perversions. The Father is called Lord (Jude 5), the Son is called Lord ( Phil 2:11), and the Holy Ghost is called Lord ( 2 Cor 3:17). The Godhead is one GOD manifested in three persons. You say explain that, I can't, its a MYSTERY ( 1 Tim 3:16)!
  • There is only one name under heaven given to man for salvation even Jesus Christ.This is the name of the Father,the Son and the Holy Ghost.The bible teaches and calls for repentance and baptism to be in the name Of Jesus Christ for remission of sins util Christ's return. Ameen
  • MockingBird for verse 38
    Trinity is one : I am a mother , sister , and a aunt; but yet I am one. Jesus is one with the Father ;two shall be one flesh : Jesus is Son of God: Jesus breathed on to receive Holy Ghost ; he imparted Himself; The subject of trinity is of great discussion :Best to allow Holy Spirit to teach you. I praise the Lord for the gift of repentance;I praise the Lord for the opportunity to have been babtized,I praise the Lord God for Holy Spirit that dwells within me. I have an unction from the Holy one and I need no man to teach me ,but as the same anointing teacheth me of all things,and is truth,and is no lie,and even as it hath taught me ,I shall abide in Him 1 John 2:27 God Bless and enrich you all !!!!
  • VERNON OLIVER for verse 38
    OFTEN I ASK MYSELF WHY DO PEOPLE COMPLIICATE GODS WORD. I WOULD ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO READ EVERY THING GODS WORD HAS TO SAY ABOUT WHATEVER SUBJECT YOU ARE STUDYING. GET THE WHOLE PICTURE. WHEN WE ICEALATE SCRIPTURE WE CAN MAKE IT SAY ANY THING WE WANT TO BELIEVE. STUDY TO SHOW YOURSELF APPROVED OF GOD... NOT OF MAN.
  • The first step back to God and to true salvation is to repent. I'm amazed at all the various comments all perpetuating one's church doctrines. Bottom line, it's not about what church you attend - this is about falling down on our knees and telling God how sorry we are for all the things we have done...for not thanking Him for His mercy and for being unthankful, ungrateful and unholy...This is about humbling our hearts...staying before the throne of grace, until God accepts us.... There can not be salvation until people admit they are filthy and undone...it's not about the clothes you wear, or the church you go to - this is about surrendering to God.. calling on his Son Jesus and asking Jesus who is the Son of the living God..He is NOT God..He is the Son of the living God.. and when we do it God's way, He then will stamp His approval upon us by giving us the gift of the Holy Ghost.... People don't receive the gift of the Holy Ghost because people refuse to truly repent. Repentance is the ONLY way to find God and repentance starts on our knees - not in some church listening to lies and half truths from church doctrine.
  • KJB
    "Chaz could I share some Bible(KJB) with you? Acts 2:38 couldn't save a tadpole. The theif died under the N.T. Check the Bible not your pentecostal preacher. (John 19:33) But when they came to Jesus, and saw that He was DEAD ALREADY, thy brake not His legs: Jesus died before the theif my friend. You say so what. Ok. (Heb 9:17) For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. See he died under the N.T. Uh oh. Now look at the context of John 3. Water baptism isn't even mentioned. The first birth is always water ( Gen 1:20, Pr 5:16-18, Isa 48:1). Nothing like a King James Bible to clear up false doctrine. Check (Acts 2:38). It is a bunch of Jews (verses 5,14,22,36) in the chapter that require a sign ( 1Cor 1:22). And if you get arrested for stealing, is it in order to get stealing, or because you had already stolen. Pray about that and see what you think. Amen."
  • Bro Al
    There seems to be a problem about this word remission. A poster in St Joe Mo..concerning Jessie James reads on a poster saying Wanted "for" bank robbery. Now was it to rob a bank or because he already robbed a bank Jesus said his shedding of blood was for the remission of sins. The Hebrew writer says "without the shedding of blood there is no remission. We are baptism because something has already happened. The Gentiles were Baptist with the Holy Ghost prior to their water baptism.
  • Joseph Gakura for verse 21
    This is easy ,just calling the name of the LORD JESUS.
    Believe and confess,this is good.

    Can God? God can.
  • Man tries to do God's work and add people to the church... But here, it clearly states that God is the one who adds those to the church daily as should be saved. God knows the heart. People can confess all they want with the mouth, but God knows the heart. The heart is deceitful and desperately wicked. We should stay out of God's business in trying to get people into church... instead, people must fall down on their knees and call on Jesus to save them
  • There is only one name given under heaven whereby men must be saved and that's the name of Jesus... Anything outside of that name is a lie. If we want to be saved from the powers of darkness and from the shackles and chains of sin, then we must call on the name of Jesus and ask Him to forgive us off all our trespasses and sins. We must believe that He is the Son of the living God and turn to Him that He will deliver us out of darkness into His Holy and Marvelous light.
  • Peter for verse 38
    i too am lucky to know about Acts 2;38 , how it is the real salvation message, how when you receive the Holy Spirit you straight away speak in tougues, i am really glad to have come accross this webpage about it, i am from the Rep of Ireland but live in Australia , visited there not long ago (Ireland) and saw the same thing as here in Australia, that most pentecostal churches now just give their hearts to Jesus, are there churches in Ireland that believe in Acts 2;38
  • King James Bible

  • Diamond for verse 38
    Acts 2:38 is the only way to be saved. Baptism in Jesus name AND receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost go hand in hand. You cannot go one without the other. Baptisim in the name of Jesus alone is the only way your sins are forgiven through water baptism. Baptism in the of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost will not wash away your sins. For the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost are all titles meaning Jesus. He is the Father. He is the son. He is the Holy Spirit but his name is Jesus. The gift of the holy ghost can fall upon you by Gods anointing, or you can tarry (meaning to wait) which calling on the name of Jesus over and over and he answers you by filling you with his spirit. Speaking in tongues, a tongue you don't know and may never learn. It's not something you control, it's Jesus speaking thru you filling you with his spirit which is our own little piece of Jesus that will lead and guide us in th apolstolic way. I'm a living witness. It's real. He is real. He promises is the gift of the Holy Ghost. God keeps his promises.
  • Ar
    My humble opinion for different opinions given on this chapter is:
    A. - Please remember Jesus last words before He went to Heaven
    Mark Chapter 16 :15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
    16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

    B.- Peter's name was Simon/Simeone

    In Aramaic his name was Cephas, which means stone: Peter ,/ Petros which in Greek means stone from the word (petra)

    The foundation of the church is built on the Rock who is Jesus Christ See Ephesian 2:
    20And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

    C. - I will remind here that we are all equal in front of Jesus ,please look into Corinthians Chapter 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
    11 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
    12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
    13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?
