    Moses, There is no contradiction with ANY Scriptures! It is important to understand the context of the Word, in order to discern what might otherwise sound different. Its not word games and its not some kind of secret code; but truth and intelligence in listening to what is said, in total. We cannot just take a favorite "verse" by itself to get the right meaning, without the whole of the teaching.
  • Moses
    Here is the Name that denoted by Holy spirit through Apostle Peter exactly in Act 2:38, that means we need to take Baptism in the name of Lord Jesus Christ....But Anti- Christ dwell in the Church doctrine and preach to people to take Baptism as in Mathew 28:19 and it say it is God word....now we need listen that Mathew 28:19 is God word means what about Act 2:38....Don't tell it is word of Peter

    Acts 2:4 - I've seen the question on here (on the comments back pgs.) - "I've tried to explain to my congregation that the holy ghost and the holy spirit are two separate things." I'm sure v. 4 is where they got this erroneous idea. Had Luke said, "..... as the ghost gave them utterance." it would have been ludicrous, as you can see. Isa. 1:18 - Come now, let us reason together ..... ".

    Acts 18:2 says Aquila was from Pontus. I got curious, looked up Pontus. And the article reminded me there were people (Greeks, "strangers") present on the Day of Pentecost, Acts 2:9. It was during the Roman period that Christianity entered Pontus and near-by areas from the Roman 'dispersion'. God wanted His people to spread His word beyond Jerusalem, and this is how he did it.

    To Nene - thank-you so much for your encouragement. We're walking with Him and He's revealed His truth to us and we have His strength, but - when people disparage us - it hurts; even people we'll never meet, have never seen. That must be the sorrow of His spirit in us ..... ? But I'm fine, going through a 'dry' spell, but I made contact real good with Jesus this a.m. I love you, Nene, in Jesus.
  • Nene
    Praise the Lord Irene 123...being a chosen vessel of God feels so good but I just wanted to comment you....you're doing a wonderful work for God online and I'm sure else where too cause there is so many need truth...we know it's only a few that are chosen because of the sincere heart and not justifying sin..so I will pray for you to keep doing what you feel lead to do for the kingdom. God Bless!!

    The 4 gospels laid the foundation for the beginning of Jesus' church. The church began in Acts Ch. 2 with the first message by Peter, then the question, " ..... men and brethren, what shall we do?" Peter's answer, "Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift if the Holy Ghost."
    This is salvation.

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, ...............yet knowing how way leads to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged ...... and I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. Acts 2:37-38
  • A disciple
    "And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, saying one to another, What means this?" When EVER in all of human history, was the world ready and expecting the things which God did among them? And though He is not far from anyone of us, and closer than our hands and feet; yet we have no way to know Him by all that He has made, except He draw us to the Light, and give us understanding and grace.

    This chapter tell us what to do in mission work

    Dan. FC on 9-30-'16 - quote: "if you have a problem with what Jesus says, then you have a big problem." unquote. Matt.28:19 - "..... baptizing them in the NAME of ..... "; Acts 2:37 - Now when they heard this they were pricked in their heart ..... and said, men and brethren what shall we do?" v.38 - Then said unto them, Repent and baptized in the NAME of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins ..
  • Irene123
    J. Claudio - You need to go to Jesus in prayer for HIS guidance in your ministry, not to people. People will give you THEIR ideas. Jesus told His disciples, Apostles to pray for His words to speak AFTER they r'cvd the power of the Holy Ghost on the Day of Pentecost. You don't have His spirit or you would know this. I am NOT judging you; please believe that. I pray for God's wisdom for you.
  • C.Lee
    As we use faith we should see Christ and the church that he gave his life for in a new light. God's Word ignites our hearts for worship and for reaching out to our world with the Gospel. The same Holy Spirit dwells in us and gives us power to be a light and impact in this dark world.
  • Irene123
    Does anyone on here know that it was at least15 years after Jesus established His church in Acts ch. 2 that the epistles even BEGAN to be written, the 'epistles' being all the books after Acts. So where did all the scriptures come from that the apostles and disciples use to witness to people during those 15 yrs? Answer - from their knowledge of the O.T. and Jesus' 3 yr. ministry with them.

    We must be born again if we want to see the Kingdom of God.
    Before the day of Pentecost, the apostles had no POWER to do the will of God.
    Jesus commanded the apostles not to leave Jerusalem,without the power of the Holy Ghost.
    With man it is impossible,but not with God,for with God all things are possible.
    We need power to witness,to pray,to understand the scriptures and to bear fruits .

    I believe Satan is the author of confusion, GOD is not the author of confusion 1 Corinthians 14:33. As also in all his epistles Paul's letters to the churches he established in the BOOK OF ACTS , speaking in them of these things, in which are hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest twist , as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. 2 PETER 3:16. These letters were established in the Book of ACTS on PAUL'S missionary journeys. Study to shew thyself approved unto GOD, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2Timothy 2:15. Acts 19:1-6. REMEMBER ALL SCRIPTURE IS BY INSPIRATION OF GOD! 2 Timothy 3:16. Read Ephesians 4:5, Galatians 1: 8-12.

    God showed love by joining them in church becoz he hmself said that even if our sins r as red as blood He promised to wash them and change their colour 2be as white as snow

    To Rodney- again; I know I said in my last message that it was 'all', but I did need to explain more of why I 'attacked' him; He is a pastor, right? I'm not angry nor indignant with him; it's just I was raised to believe pastors are to seek God for their guidance and answers; not their flock. The pastors are to teach the flock, not vice versa. We are DEFINITELY not to teach the pastors, 1pet.5:2.
  • Irene123
    To Rodney - Since you are assuming I attacked a man of God and could not 'hear' my tone of voice - nor discern my attitude - this is all I will say, except - I do thank-you for the response, God Bless you.
  • Rodney Adcock
    To Irene123. It seems to me like your knowledge has you puffed up....Why would you attack a Man of God when he is simply asking a question about Peters nakedness.
  • Irene123
    Something I literally just now noticed - I went to ch. 3 and saw Peter's healing of the lame man at the gate; somewhere I read (not on here) that this was the Apostle's first healing. No, it wasn't; in ch. 2, after the message, "many signs and wonders were done ....."; the 'gate' healing was spoken of as a miraculous miracle because of their 'instant' faith, right on the spot.
  • Irene123
    To Bible Reader on salvation - repentance, baptism in the name of Jesus; do you include the 'evidence' of tongues in that .....?
  • Irene123
    To Jane on 1 Cor, 15:1-4 - Acts was the beginning of the church (Acts ch. 2). Everything after Acts was written to ALREADY established churches, they were already saved. The ONLY plan of salvation is Acts 2:38. 1 Cor. 15:v.1 - .....which also ye have RECIEVED (past tense) wherein ye also stand. They are now 'standing' in their salvation.
  • Bible Reader
    Romans 2:28-29 says For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh:

    29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit,and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

  • Bible Reader
    Acts is the book of actions of the apostles of the early church.
  • Jane
    2 Tim 2:15...to correctly divide the scripture.
    So if u r not a Jew, please follow the gospel 1 Cor 15:1-4 to be saved. The book of Acts is a transitional one.
  • Stella
    and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Luke 24:47
  • Bible Reader
    The only name that can remit sins is Jesus. Father, Son , and Holy ghost are titles.
    Acts 2:38 plainly states we should be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.
    Acts 4:12 says Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
    Ephesians 4:5 One Lord, One Faith , One Baptism.
  • Omoding David
    Comment* Bro. Daniel FC, 2Timothy 3:16 says "All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness" 17 That the man of God may be perfect, thorougly furnished unto all good works. 2Peter 1:2 says "For prophesy came not in old time by the will of man,but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost."
