    It seems to me, what happened on the day of Pentecost was something of a reversal of what happened at the dispersion at Babel in the book of Genesis. I think speaking in tongues clearly refers to speaking in other languages and was a gift apostles found themselves with granted by the Holy Spirit. This all seems very interesting to me in light of our present day church history. Many thanks!

    Acts 2 tells about the birth of the church. Thank God we can still be part of this same church!

    Do not be deceived, the words Les posted are true. May GOD bless you all in Christ Jesus. Amen Psalms 12:6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

    Respons to LES M - - - Further more, according to the gospel of LUKE 24:36-53, you should read it until verse 53. Jesus's disciples were terrified because Jesus came to them. They've heard that Jesus was crucified to death but Jesus didn't die. Amazing.. Unless you want to say Jesus is lying in the Bible. Please read the gospel of LUKE 24:36-53.
  • Johnson
    Respons to LES M --- I'm sorry sir. I think you should read the whole story in the book of Act chapter 2. It's not the words from Jesus according for a holy spirit as you said. But it's the words from PETER. Not the words from Jesus. By the way, the words of Jesus from his mouth and lips is in the READ LETTER, in the Bible.

    We have to remember the word of God says if we don't have the spirit we are none of His. We have to be born again of water and spirit. We have to become new creatures in Christ born again. Water and spirit. Spiritual birth

    John preached the baptism of repentance. Jesus did not need to repent. At His baptism by John Jesus accepted. He became sin for us that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. What is baptism?
    Matthew 20:22-23
    22
    But Jesus answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?
  • Jacob
    Do we get remission of sins by faith alone like in Rom 3:25 or by water baptism in Acts 2:38. Are we saved without works Rom 4:5 or are works a part of salvation James 2:24? Are we to turn away someone who asks to borrow Matt 5:42 or are we to tell him to get a job if he wants to eat 2 Th 3:10? Are you to pray for your enemies to be a child Matt 5:44-45 or will simple faith do it Gal 3:26? 2Tm2:15
  • Nene
    In Jesus name....please read and receive and be saved... James 2:14-26 obey Acts 2:38-47 and receive ye the Holy Ghost blessing. ...
  • Jacob
    The church was started at Pentecost but the physical Kingdom was still being offered. Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come FROM THE PRESENCE of the Lord. They were added and saved according to Acts 2:38 then but not after Paul's revelation of the mystery see Eph 3:1-9. Today its' faith alone (Rom 3:24-25)!
  • Kings kid
    If the Lord say so why not obey ? They all not some received vs. 38-47 speaks loud to me.... And the LORD added to THE CHURCH daily such as should be SAVED. ...think about what that means it has been spoken....Repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ EVERYONE and ye SHALL not might but shall receive the gift of the holy ghost, he let's us know this is the gospel. .don't resist it. Bless

    i think that i you read the Act of Apostle Chapter 2 down to 13 very well, according to my own understanding, all i see there about baptism. though John baptized with water but god said that there should wait for the baptism of the holy ghost which there waited for 10 good days and after there were baptized all were speaking in tongues. i think you will understand it more as you proceed Amen.
  • Nene
    I'm so sorry but I would like to who in their right mind will stand and argue about the scriptures before giving themselves a fair chance, all you have to do is go down on your knees and repent of all your wrong before God and just ask him if this is real he still talks to anyone that seeks him if you're being real trust me he will hear you so go in private and pray until u she'd tears. Blessing
  • Nb
    The scripture itself makes it clear that the languages spoken were known languages spoken by some of people there from all the Jewish nations who gathered there for the feast of Pentecost. It was not some angelic language known only to God. There are many who truly believe they are speaking this heavenly language, but, sadly, they are in error. This was a sign gift for that period of time. The Holy Spirit comes in to dwell now when we accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We should seek to be filled with Him by obedience to His written Word, and love for one another.
  • Jacob
    Acts 15:9 And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts BY FAITH. No water baptism added. Amen Peter. Now Peter has the message that agrees with Pauline doctrine. Paul is our apostle for the church age see Rom 11:13, 1 Tim 2:7, 2 Tim 1:11, Rom 15:16, Acts 9:15, 1TIM 1:16. Paul received an abundance of revelations that had been kept secret since the world began (Ro 16:25).
  • Nene
    Acts 15:3-7 they passed through Phenice and Samaria, declaring the conversion of the Gentiles: and they caused great joy unto all the brethren. And when there had been much disputing, PETER rose up, and said unto them, Men and brethren, ye know how that a good while ago GOD made choice among us, that the Gentiles by my mouth should hear the word of the gospel and believe. Preach it Peter! Excited!
  • Nene
    King James Bible is not false sir and above all things we must be born again to make heaven, Jesus said himself no one will enter the kingdom without being born again John 3:3-21 it's not just for the Jews. Acts 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 11:1-18 read it
  • Nene
    I'm so sorry sir but no disrespect to anyone but the devil and all his angels have came to late to tell me that this isn't for us today because I got it just like the Bible said.... I repented of all my sins and God filled me with his spirit and I dare anyone to go down on their knees and call on Jesus repenting of their sins and ask him for the Holy Ghost cause he will show up.1998 my new birth
  • Nene
    Yes I am apostolic been born again of the water and the spirit and baptized in Jesus name this is real and I was a drug,alcohol user and a fornicator but after I repented of my sins God filled my soul with his spirit and I spoke in a language I have never heard and I was scared saying to myself what is this coming out my mouth but oh what a joy it's like fire shut up in my bones. Praise The Lord!!
  • Irene to Jacob on acts 2
    How is 1 Corinthians 15: 1-4 our salvation? and who is 'our? There are no definitive verses in 1 Cor. 15: 1-4 that point to salvation. Paul here is expounding on the Gospel of Jesus christ; his Gospel is our salvation - the whole bible. The Lord would not have put a book into His word that didn't apply to our salvation. That's 'confusion' - and God is not the author of confusion.
  • Irene
    are you Apostolic? I am.
  • Nene
    To die out of the old ways is not always easy but if you just empty your heart in sincerity God will cleanse you. 1.Death = Repentance 2. Burial = Baptism in Jesus Name 3. Resurrection = The Holy Ghost, which is the spirit of God that you must receive in order to make heaven it wasn't just for Peter and the Apostles read Acts 5 where they commanded them not to preach Jesus but they obey God.
  • Nene
    Hello Mr. Robey as you read in Acts it is the acts of the Apostles which was left to us for instructions Jesus spoke in Acts 1:4-8 speaks of the power which is the spirit of God that he wants to place inside of us if we believe and obey he will fill you, now anybody that's honest with themselves will receive Jesus saying, He wants everyone to come to the knowledge of truth but not all obey.
  • Jacob
    Peter was given the keys to the kingdom of heaven which was turned down in Matthew 12:31, forgiven in Luke 23:34 and turned down again in Acts 7:51. Paul was sent to the Gentiles, Rom 11:13, Acts 9:15, 1 Tim 2:7, 2 Tim 1:11. No one asked what must I do to be SAVED in Acts 2. That question is asked and answered in Acts 16:31. Acts 2 is a Jewish message to Jews expecting the return their Messiah.
  • Nene
    Yes Mr. Robey read Matthew 16:18-19 where Jesus gave Peter the keys to the kingdom of heaven and in Acts 2:37-47 you will see Peter in the mist when the people asked what must they do to be saved then Peter replied to them and The Lord added to the CHURCH daily such as should be saved, meaning follow the instructions that Jesus left with Peter for us to obey until the end. God Bless You...
  • Wellman Robey
    Is speaking in tongues the same today as in the early church. I have been in services where there was a message given but it didn"t sound like a foreign language
  • Carol Ford
    This chapter tells us all how to be saved. Plain and simple. that question "what must i do to be saved" is answered here. they were added to "the" church, lettin us know we must be in the church that Christ died for in order to be saved.
  • Robert
    Very few will enter into the kingdom of God and very few people are baptized in the name of Jesus Christ acts 2 38. Who ever makes it to heaven will praise Jesus. Jesus is the word. God and Jesus are one. I am glad I go through Jesus God has given all things to the son's hand.Jesus speaks God is a spirit he don't talk, Jesus does it all through Jesus Christ. Thomas calls Jesus both my Lord and my God because he knew. Jesus is the way the truth and the life Amem and Amen, thank you Jesus Christ.
  • Vivian Collins for verse 20
    2 nights ago we had a blood moon. The Lord isn't going to be able to stand the sin that's going on in this world much longer. He's coming!! Get ready!! Repent!!
  • Joseph for verse 3
    I have personally experienced, "Cloven Tongues" that which is mentioned in the Bible, an had three witnesses. The words written, describing the event is as it is written. God's word is true! Amen!
