    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

  • Excel for verse 42
    they gave themselves to to the teaching of jesus preached to them already.the preaching constitute the death,ressurrection,and ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ.They lived the cross and sacrificial life for Jesus' sake
  • Makalynn Pugh
    This scripture is the core chapter, pretty much, of the Apostolic Pentecostal faith. An amazing experience they had and that we still have today. I got the holy ghost when I was 4 years old. I've been in church all my life and I've had Acts 2:38 down and memorized. That verse changed my life. Knowing that people in the bible could be filled with God's spirit is something so supernatural to me. And also knowing that it can still happen to people today. Anybody! I love being Apostolic Pentecostal because it has changed my life. I don't know how I could live without this chapter and my church family. The Holy Ghost is the best thing that has ever happened to me and each time I get it I never feel better! Thank you Jesus! :)
  • No one went to heaven, not even David. There is
    a resurrection from the dead. See John 3v. 13,
    1 Corinthians 15
  • Innocent Nkurunziza for verse 42
    I believe these were christtians who continued to study the word of God, prayed single mindedly, had fellowship to gether and support each other, they understood that what they had belonge to God
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 38
    Wearing of clothes does not commend us to God. The Holy Spirit is given when we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and then we are baptized by fire in the Holy Spirit. John baptized with water, but Jesus told John ye will be baptized with fire. Have faith in God, for we are saved by grace, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, not of works less any one should boast.
  • Tara Cannon for verse 38
    I have a question, my soon to be twelve year old daughter who has been blessed by the gift of speaking in tounges went to church Friday night and spoke in tounges she was so excited ! The next day she was getting ready for her dad to pick her up and put on a pair of jeans . When she walked into the living room , her grandfather saw her and said, You won't have the holy ghost no more if you wear jeans! Is this true?
  • Cloud for verse 42
    thts the backbone of the church or foundation
  • Mary Jane Newlon for verse 42
    I believe they were believing men who gave their lies over completely to the teachings of Christ. Giving their lives and everything they possessed to spread God's word.
  • David Maher for verse 38
    If it is in the Bible, then it is true or the Apostles are deceiving all the people in the upper room. Jesus said that he would send the comforter, making the Holy Spirit subservient to him. That makes the name of Jesus the all in all "person" in the godhead bodily. Jesus even said do all things in his name.
  • Bro.Anil Patra
    The holy bible is clear and opened for all human but to understand the verse we should have the holy spirit because the bible was written by the God's people filled with the holy spirit, if we would try to understand the bible as human will be wrong so we should pray to God to understand, the bible says we can't add and subtract one word to the bible, (So it is very clear to understand Jesus said Matthew 28:19 to the apostles before he was crucified. Literally in Acts 2:38 the apostles were filled with the Holy Spirit and then Peter stand before said unto them repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. Same baptism was said by Paul also. Jesus said if you love me then obey my word. Such people cannot obey the word because they are not anointed apostles.
  • Ray
    Baptism was originally used like an "altar call" at a Billy Graham crusade. Peter indicates that the washing isn't what saves you, but the "answer of a good conscience towards God." It is believing to the point where you openly respond to God, and are willing to be openly associated with Christ. Baptism is a vehicle to openly identify with Christ. The quality of faith is what saves you. The thief on the cross wasn't baptized, but he believed to the point where he was willing to call out to Christ and be open about his faith in Christ. There are plenty of scriptures that tell of salvation apart from baptism, but a faith that is willing to be open and public and not secret is always evident. If you realize that baptism was the usual way people responded to the gospel message and openly identified with Christ, then it explains passages connecting baptism with salvation and also explains passages and saved people who have no connection to baptism. Other ways to demonstrate open faith in Christ: call upon Him, confess Him, love your neighbor, etc.
  • Tywon for verse 36
    You need to know whom you are dealing with. And know this is is Jesus whom you have put your mouth on and are putting to death on the cross the one God send to save the sick and heal the land of dieses .Give sight to the blind because you have to give account of your wrong and what you do.

    I think it is very clear, what peter is talking about when he says repent and be baptized, everyone of you; in the name of JESUS CHRIST Acts 4:8 then peter filled with the HOLY SPIRIT,said to them rulers and elders of the people if we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a cripple and are asked how he was healed then, know this you and everyone else in isreal it is by the name of jesus christ of nazareth whom you crucified, but whom god raised from the dead that this man stands before you completely healed. salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.
  • Its easy to see how well all the verses harmonize together. Mark 16:16, He who believes and is baptized shall be saved... Acts 2:38 And Peter said unto them repent and be baptized everyoneof you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins..... Romans 6:1-6 says we are "Buried with him by baptism into death." But then you get to verses like Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith... That is excatly right. Faith leads us to repentance. We confess Christ because of our faith. Romans 10:9 Faith makes us do all these things. We are buried with him in baptism and raised THROUGH FAITH. Colossians 2:12
  • Phillip
    Jesus said in Matthew 26:28 that He shed His Blood "for the remission of sins." This same exact phrase is found in Acts 2:38. We know that Jesus did not shed His Blood because we were already saved, but in order that we would be saved. Peter is pointing out here, what Paul expounds upon in Romans 6:1-6 and Galatians 3:27...that by be baptized we are contacting the sin cleansing Blood of Christ. Certainly we are saved by His grace of coming into this world and dying on the cross. But it is by being obedient to His word that we have faith in. Ephesians 2:8,9 do not say we are saved by faith ALONE. That word was added by men. We are saved by faith in that we believe His word and obey it. Those in Acts 2:37 were pricked in their hear...they believed....and when they asked "what must we do.." Peter said "repent and be baptized everyone one of you in the name of Jesus Christ FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS.."
  • Stanley
    It seems that we have forgotten about Ephesians 2:8 & 9. We are saved by Grace. Baptism does not save us. We get baptized because we are saved.
  • Joseph Gakura for verse 38
    In Jesus name,I baptize you in the name of the FATHER, SON and of the HOLLY SPIRIT, Amen.
