  • 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
  • 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'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.

    "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. (Hebrews 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 ( Genesis 1:20, Proverbs 5:16-18, Isaiah 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 ( 1 Corinthians 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."

    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.
  • 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
    (Proverbs 25:14) Whoso boasteth himself of a false gift is like clouds and wind without rain. (Jeremiah 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 Corinthians 1:22) "For the Jews require a sign," (1 Corinthians 14:22) "Wherefore TONGUES are for a sign," (Matthew 12:39) "An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a SIGN!!!!! (Revelation 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!" Hell is hot.
  • 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?
  • Minister Simon Nogfa
    Peter was given the Keys of Kingdom by Jesus in Matthew 16:18,19 and during the the Day of Pentecost Peter declared the Keys of Kingdom of Heaven in Acts 2:38
  • Thy word is truth
    Don't slide into the sand ( Matthew 7:26). Look at the verses sir, in English, the preserved word of God. You don't speak "in aramaic" and your Lexicon has the definitions of a Bible agnostic in it. Let's use one Authority the (KJB)so we can walk in agreement (Amos 3:3). Peter is "A stone" (John 1:42) not "this rock". Jesus said in (John 2:19) "this temple" and "he spake of the temple of his body" look at verse 21! The Jews missed that like people do today when they read "this rock" in Matthew 16:18. Christ is the Rock (Psalms 62:2,1 Corinthians 10:4, 2 Samuel 22.2, etc.) Please don't get the wrong Rock. (Deu 32:31) For their rock is not as our Rock! The Holy Spirit robbed Peter to pay Paul. Read Acts and see the transition and see that Paul had to straighten Peter out (Galatians 2:11) as the Lord will do to all those who follow Peter in the Church instead of Paul ( Acts 9:15, Romans 11:13,etc.) Amen.
  • JJ
    Christ is the rock of faith and salvation, Peter is the rock on which the Church was started as instructed by Christ, with Christ as the cornerstone. Peter you are rock (Kepha - in aramaic) and on this rock (Kepha) I will build my church. Christ took Peter and the deciples to Cesaria Philipi (a rock) to give an backdrop of what he was doing. People do not understand the meaning here. Christ changed simons name to Peter for a reason.
  • Gods word is true
    If Acts 2:38 means be baptised in order to get your sins remitted, does "Christ died for our sins" in ( 1 Corinthians 15:3) mean Christ died in order to get our sins? When you get arrested FOR stealing, does that mean that you got arrested because you stole,(the answer is yes) or in order to get stealing? When you get baptised you get baptised because you are saved. Otherwise an unborn child, which is what you become when you get saved (John 1:12,Galatians 3:26) is obeying commands. Baptism is a command and you can't obey a command unless you are born of God. Poeople get baptised but unless your already SAVED, you are just getting wet. Amen.
  • A CAMPBELL for verse 38
    Its the only plan of salvation.Its all truth. I was born and raised catholic. Realized that it was nothing but lies. I asked God to direct me to the real church as I didn't have time to visit them all. he sent me an apostolic preacher. Since then I have studied the bible over and have not found a flaw in the apostolic doctrine.I have dedicated my life to passing out the plan of salvation to anyone I meet.If you don't have bible for what you belive your spinning your wheeles and you are gona get left behind.How can you overlook baptism ? don't you want your sins washed away. There is only one way to have your sins remitted. BAPTISM.In JESUS name Wake up my bro. and sisters. we are in the very last days. Ask your pastor his plan of salvation / you may be surprised at his answer. The sinners prayer don't cut it/ Just believing don't cut it/joining church don't cut it/caling him Jehovah don't cut it/ Acts 2:38 IS THE ONLY ANSWER. praise JESUS
  • King James Bible
    Here are the keys Peter was given: (Acts 14:27) "they rshearsed all that God had done with them, and how He had OPENED THE DOOR of faith unto the Gentiles.(1 Corinthians 16:9) For a great DOOR and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries. ( 2 Corinthians 2:12) Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ's gospel, and a DOOR was opened unto me of the Lord. (Colossians 4:3) Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a DOOR of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds. The keys were given to Peter for a chance to preach. Look at the verses. God gives us keys to DOORs or opportunities to preach or tell someone about Christ. We don't need keys to heaven, "we got's the door" (John 10:7)! Amen.
  • Nene
    To whom it may concern,I'm sorry that you are missing the only saving message in the word of God but if you do not obey what Jesus himself spoke to Peter and told him he was giving him the keys to the kingdom of heaven and whatsoever he bind on earth may be bound in heaven and whatsoever he loose on earth will be loosed in heaven Matthew 16:18-19 if someone give me a key to open any door for safety I'm not the one to stand and debate about what I think, I will make sure to at least try it for sure and if it don't work then I will have to seek futher (but) your heart has to be sincere to get in with God. JESUS is the Name above every name under heaven Philippians 2:10, how could anyone go wrong by giving it a try for themselves before being critical or speaking mean toward each other about the word of God. Read these scripture's with an open mind Acts 10;44-48, Acts 19:2-9 there is lots more but enough for now. I pray in the name of Jesus that he gives anyone and everyone the understanding that read these scriptures.
  • 1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit (The Holy Spirit) are we all baptized into one Body (Body of Christ)..... The one Baptizing is [The Holy Spirit] The one Baptized [The Believer] What is he baptized into [The Body of Christ]
    "For the remission of sins" means [because of the remission of sins] When you take medicine (for) a headache, is it in order (to get) a headache? Water Baptism necessary? Yes! In obedience to Christ {BECAUSE WE ARE SAVED} NOT TO BE Saved. What can wash away my sin??? Nothing but the blood of Jesus! Romans 10:9-13 2Cor 13:14 The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Love of God, and the Communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.
  • Simon Nogfa
    I was baptised in Acts 2:38 and filled with Holy Ghost evidence speaking in tounges.
    This is the salvation message for the mankink
  • AV1611KJV
    On verse 38 make sure you know that any church that builds it's theology on this verse is on "sinking sand" ( Matthew 7:26). Acts 2:38 is spoken to a bunch of Jews by a Jew(Simon Peter) and he is Cephas (John 1:42) a "stone" and not the Rock Jesus Christ. Christ is the Rock to which Matthew 16:18 refers to according to the Bible. Check the Scriptures ( Psalms 62:2,1 Corinthians 10:4, 2 Samuel 22:2, etc.)If you build your chruch on Peter, you have the wrong rock. (Deu 32:31) "For their rock is not as our Rock," Please read the Bible and check the verses. Good day.
  • Acts 2:38 is part of what the church is built upon. In Matthew 16:18-Jesus told Peter upon him He was going to build His church. Ephesians 2:20-tells us that the church is built upon the foundation of the prophets and apostles. So whatever the apostles wrote in the Bible Jesus is backing it up, because He's the chief corner stone. I was born again by reading and believing Acts 2:38. I repented, got baptized:fully immerged in the water in Jesus' name, not the titles Father, Son, and HolyGhost, and I sought the Lord for the HolyGhost and one night He gave it to me with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gave me the utterance. The HolyGhost is the Spirit of Christ and without it we are none of His Romans 8:9.
  • Johnpaul for verse 29
    This passage speaks of the death (to flesh)and burial with Christ of a believer as well as The evidence of such death with The Host of Heaven.
  • Thy word is truth
    Acts 2:38 has been used by the Devil to send millions to hell. Notice who is being spoken to in this chapter vs 5 "Jews", verse 14 "men of Judea," vs 22 "men of Israel," vs 36 " the house of Israel,". These are Jews who require a sign ( 1 Corinthians 1:22) and tongues are for a sign ( 1 Corinthians 14:22) to sign seeking Jews ( Matthew 12:39). You do not need tongues to be saved. Paul is the apostle to the Gentiles ( Romans 11:13,15:16, Acts 9:15). We listen to Paul who wrote by the Holy Spirit that salvation is by "grace through faith" ( Ephesians 2:8-9). Peter was speaking to Jews who require a sign and there were sign seeking Jews in Chapters ( 2, 10, 19). The Gentiles are saved by believing the Gospel found in ( 1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Hope this will help but I doubt it. ( 1 Corinthians 14:38)!!!!!
  • Voice for verse 42
    In perfect harmony as one in Jesus we all would be able to relate to what our past follower's experience back then if we continue whole-hearted to this scripture but we are the solution and to the problem
  • Deacon Bruce Young
    Praise the Lord everyone, I thank God for the True Apostolic doctrine and for receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost with the Evidence of Speaking in Tongues which still happens today. God pricked my Heart and I felt the Power that came with a mortal body shaking{quickening}by the Holy Ghost. Obeying Repentance from ALL Sin and Wrong Doing, and to be Baptized in the Father(JESUS),the son(JESUS),and the Holy Ghost(JESUS) Simplified = JESUS Name the ONLY Saving Name and DOING the first two, ANYONE can then Receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost Which Is the only way anyone can live righteously enough to receive ETERNAL LIFE, Praise the Lord

    John 3-16 if we asked Jesus in our heart's and we realy mean it you are saved and still have the holy spirit living in side you.i was going to a church you could not wear jeans because that's all I had I was told the same thing that i was not saved. But all i can say is 30 years later i still wear pants and im still have the Holy spirit. i myself just stay close to Jesus put the Lord number one in my life. read the bible. i hoped that help someone. GOD BLESS ALL
