    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...

    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!
  • Simon P. Bedard for verse 21
    I always thought Acts 2 was interesting and fascinating.Luke tells of the SPIRIT and the second coming of CHRIST.This means HOPE and TRUST to me. MAY GOD BLESS US ALL c
  • Praise the lord " It's nice to know that people have a concern about there soul,and it takes a church. Those 1st 2 chapters in book of acts picks up from the last ch. of Luke. This where Christ's church started and the plan of salvation for all souls. He wish no one to be lost.
  • Dennis for verse 31
    Thinking about this logically answered the question for me. The penalty for sin is separation from God and eternal death. If Jesus was indeed the "firstborn from the dead" as the Bible says, and paid the price for our sin, it almost seems a heresy to preach that Jesus DIDN'T go into hell. We are told in Revelation that He has the keys to death and Hades. Where did He go to get them? But because He was MADE sin and did not commit them, He was there illegally, preached to the dead imprisoned there, and let them know He was out of there, rose from the dead, and THEN ascended to His Father. To say that He spent three days in only the Paradise half of Hades can't be right.

    Tess read Romans 10:9 n 1John 2:20. The Spirit will answer of ur questions.
  • Rita
    This message is for Tammi. Hi this is my first time on this or any message board but the pureness of your question struck me. Read 1Cor.12 n 1Cor.14. They should answer your question. Be blessed.

    In the name of Jesus Christ receive the Holy Ghost.................please don't loose your souls it will not hurt you to take the time and talk to Jesus on your knees privately just try it instead of arguments, get real with him from a sincere heart anybody would rather be safe than sorry................. Acts 7:51 Read whole chapter Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye. Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

    Please give us the Scripture where we are commanded to ask God to fill us with the holy spirit the evidence of which is speaking in tongues. Tongues are for a sign 1 Cor 1:22. The Jews REQUIRE a sign 1 14:22. Every time tongues or languages were spoken Acts 2,10,19 Jews were present. They didn't believe the Gentiles could be saved. Acts 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. Peter was preaching the gospel of the Kingdom in Acts 2 to Jews see verse 2,14,22,36. They were waiting for Jesus to come back Acts 3:19-21! The kingdom was turned down with the stoning of Stephen. Notice Jesus was standing in verse 55. They rejected the Holy Ghost and Jesus saved Paul and told him to go to the Gentiles and revealed to him the mysteries that Peter wasn't aware of in Chapter 2. They get straight by chapter 15. Our church age doctrine is the Pauline epistles. We are saved by grace through faith without works Romans 4:5, Ephesians 2:8-9. Also if water baptism is a command, which it is, are unborn children obeying commands or is it a born again believer obeying a command to be water baptized?
  • Tami
    I was reading it to get clarity on if you can receive the Holy Ghost without speaking in tongues
  • Paul
    Baptism is not a work but an act of obedience. We certainly have been commanded to be baptized by full immersion in water when we are old enough to understand why we are doing it. We must ask God to fill us with the holy spirit the evidence of which is speaking in tongues.
  • Jacob
    Oneness Theology teaches that God was in the mode of the Father in the O.T. God was seen in the O.T. not as a dream or a vision or an angel in the following verses Exodus 6:2-3,Genesis 19:24,Numbers 12:6-8 But Jesus said no non has seen the Father in John 6:46. If they were seeing God Almighty Exodus 6:2-3 but it wasn't the Father who was it? John 8:58.
  • RevJazzyJ for verse 38
    Ask a College English Professor to examine Acts 2:38 They will tell you Jesus is the name of the Father, Jesus is the name of the Son, and Jesus is the name of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, If you have seen me you have seen the Father Jesus is the Son, as He is God robed in flesh 100 God 100 man. Jesus is the Holy Ghost, He is a Spirit and he that worships Him must worship Him in Spirit and truth. See also John Ch. 3:5-20. Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: Deuteronomy 6:4

    Firstly, Mark 16:16 clearly says: 'He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved but he that believeth not shall be damned'. So belief and baptism are imperative to salvation. Secondly, only Jesus Christ has ascended to heaven as verses 31 - 33 explains. 31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption. 32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. 33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. Only Jesus, you may ask, because as Peter states in verse 34 of this chapter of Acts 2: 'For David is not ascended into the heavens'. This is King David, whom God described as a man after His own heart. Resurrection to Judgement and then immortality is the scripturally defined process of salvation, based on a believers belief and baptism, not a free entrance with no obligation of change on a person's part into heaven. Regards Ian
  • Jacob
    Thank the Lord we have Scripture to go by. Romans 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. "Let God be true, but every man a liar as it is written."
  • JB
    Neither baptism alone nor faith alone saves, it is complete obedience to God s plan!
  • Nita
    Hi Jess's out of your sincere heart keep seeking the word of God for yourself and you will find that every word of God is true and yes you must be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ as in Acts Chap.19 as some speak against as the people did in verse 9 in this chap.but study the word for yourself cause people will deceive you cause of the lack of knowledge. I'm speaking to you about this because of my own experience I came thru 4 different religious groups that never made a difference in my life and I'm not talking against anyone but this is my personal testimony when I got baptized in the wonderful name of JESUS.. I have never been that same person and you will feel a load lift up off you and be very eager to tell everyone you see I'm so excited that you are looking for answers just keep reading the word of God and you will find him. Read Isaiah 45:21-23, where every knee shall bow.. Philippians 2:10 God Bless You.
  • Jacob
    If you are saved, you don't have to be rebaptized. If you are trusting your water baptism to get you to heaven then believe the gospel in 1 Cor 15:1-4 and trust Jesus Christ to save you then get Gentile water baptism Matthew 28:19. Water baptism doesn't save. Believing the gospel which is the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and trusting His shed blood to get you to heaven is what saves. 1 Peter 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:
  • Jess
    My brother tells me that I must repent and be baptised, I am already baptised, must it be done repeatedly?, or, since I was a baby the first time, or should I do it again as an adult?.

    Psalms 6:5 For in death there is no remembrance of You In the grave who will give You thanks? Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going. Isaiah 38:18 For Sheol the grave cannot thank You, Death cannot praise You Those who go down to the pit cannot hope for Your truth. Psalms 115:17 The dead do not praise the LORD, Nor any who go down into silence. Why do Christians not believe these clear scriptures, which categorically disprove the doctrine of the immortal soul? Notice, the Bible says that when a person dies his memory ceases, he cannot praise God and he has no knowledge or wisdom. In other words, the soul of a person without a body is not conscious. The concept of the immortal soul was the result of pagan beliefs developed by Greek poets and philosophers. The Greek philosopher Plato fully developed the concept of the immortal soul, and this belief infiltrated the Roman Catholic Church and subsequently the Protestant churches. The Bible teaches resurrection, which is a rising from the dead. This is in direct opposition to the pagan belief in an immortal soul. Resurrection is the glorious central truth of the Bible. The Bible says that Jesus Christ earned resurrection immortal life for each and every person through His death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead.
  • My mother passed away a few months ago and everyone keeps saying they have dreams about her saying that she's OK I was just wondering do dead people come to you in your dreams. I was told to read Acts 2:17 to get some type of understanding . I'm still confuse
  • Marvin
    To get a better understanding of the Kingdom of Heaven and the Kingdom of God the Apostle Paul shed a better light on it by reading First Corinthians Chapter 15 verses 22 thru 28. That, at my understanding is at the end of the 1000 year reign of Christ's rule when Satan is destroyed and there will be no more death.
  • Marvin
    John The Baptist first preached the kingdom of Heaven was at hand first Matt. Ch. 3 v.2 . After John degreed Jesus Christ Himself preached the same message by which meaning the king Christ was coming to offer his kingdom on earth to Israel only at that time Matt. Ch. 4 V. 17. for proof and read Matt. Ch. 10 V.5. Then after the Nation of Israel rejected Christ as their messiah the Jews had Christ Crucified He resurrected after 3 days and was seen of more than 500 witnesses 40 days later at the day of Pentecost Acts 2:38, Peter was preaching the same message to Israel now in the Name of Jesus Christ then 3000 and another 5000 believed in Christ as the Messiah. This is the reason these Jews sold their possessions and gave it to the poor thinking Christ was coming back to sit up his Kingdom. Because if you read Acts Ch. 3 verses 19 thru 21 He would have came back 2000 years ago.
  • Bro wanie
    God bless the bible say in Acts 2:38 be bptize in the name of Jesus Christ not in the name of Jesus because u get lot of Jesus today Acts 2:38 say Jesus Christ none was baptize in the name of Jesus an Peter say the same Jesus u crucify God made Him LORD JESUS CHRIST amen
  • Jacob
    Amen brother Marvin. Lord help them to see it.
  • Marvin
    May God help them brother Jacob, they can't understand the Apostle Paul was given the Gospel of Grace, Ephesians Chapter 3 v.2. The Gospel for Gentiles and Jews is in First Corinthians Chapter 15 verses 1 thru 4 for today.
