  • Noel Austine for verse 22
    He is a man under authority, He does only what He sees His father do what heaven has approved because He is a man who is approved by God when you are committed to doing what God approves, you always achieve maximum miraculous results.

    If Acts 2 is doctrinally to you today and not for Jews then please do follow these verses too. Acts 2:44-45 And all that believed were together, and had all things common And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. Will you please do that? That 's what the Bible instructs you to do. The Church age was not revealed at this time Eph 3 and the Pauline epistles hadn 't been written yet. This Acts 2 is a Jewish faith Rom 1:16-17 . Yes they were added to the church but Acts is transitional. They are not added that way now. There are four different ways the Holy Spirit is received in Acts alone. But Paul our Apostle Rom 11:13 says its by Grace through faith ALONE. Once the kingdom is rejected with the stoning of Stephen Paul the apostle to the gentiles is saved and the transition from Jew to Gentile begins and by Acts 15 everyone agrees by faith alone. Relief is being sent to the Jews who obeyed Acts 2:44-45. See Acts 11:27-30, Rom 15:26, 1 Cor 16:1-3 .

    I plainly say just read it and do what it instructs you to do. The book of acts was before all the denominations of Christianity that is now in the world. There was just Christians before man tried to perfect God and his Word. HE really doesn 't need our help. HIS WAYS are above our ways. God Bless all of you.
  • Betty Mccormack for verse 17
    Some, including me have thought that the people that are saying Christ is talking to them are saying they are false prophets. In Acts it clearly states that in the end of days our sons and daughters will prophesied. I have prayed for God to show me false prophets. I believe he just answered my prsyer in this verse
  • Jacob
    The reason that Jesus said if you have seen me you have seen the father is: Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person. This text is speaking of The Lord Jesus Christ. He is not the Father. He says in John 10:30 I and my Father are one. But this doesn 't He is the Father. They are one in unity just as the believers are one in Him. We are one with each other but are not the same as each other and are not Him. John 17:11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that THEY MAY BE ONE, as WE are. Jesus is the image of God so He said John 12:45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. They couldn 't see the Father without Jesus because he declared Him or made Him known.John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. If there is no Godhead who were they seeing in the Old Testament?Exodus 6:2-3 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD: And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty. If they were seeing God Almighty but it wasn 't the Father who was it? Hint. The preincarnate Christ.

    Clearly the water is physical birth. That which is flesh is flesh. Flesh is physical and it is associated with water. We say, her water broke. Spirit is obviously the new birth. This is a good verse for the oneness to explain. Genesis 19:24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven Strange verse if there is no Godhead. What aboutGenesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: The angles sure didn 't help Him considering Isaiah 44:24 I am the LORD that maketh all things that stretcheth forth the heavens alone that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself. What aboutGe 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us. Who is us? Hosea 12:4 Yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto him: he found him in Bethel, and there he spake with us Who is the US in this verse? The Bible tells you. Hosea 12:5 Even the LORD God of hosts the LORD is his memorial.

    John 1:1 In the beginning was the word, and the word was WITH God, and the word "WAS God ". John 1:14 The word was made flesh jesus now and dwelt among us. This says God was made flesh and dwelt among us as Jesus Christ. Lets try basic algebra. N name N father N son N HG If N 1 then N has to equal all of them. Name is singular. The name of the son is Jesus Christ we know for sure so there for the name of all is Jesus Christ English: A Euliptical clause is the scripture of in the name of the father, the son, and the holy ghost. Peter said My Lord and my God. Jesus said if you have seen me you have seen the father.

    If there is no Trinity or One God manifested in three persons, the Bible is wrong. 1 Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The above verse states that man is a trinity consisting of three parts in one. Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him male and female created he them. This verse states that God created man in His image. Now God must be a tripartite God or the Bible is wrong. You know the Bible is true. Another thing.John 8:16-17 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me. It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. THE TESTIMONY OF TWO. Now either the Father and the Son are two or The Lord Jesus just lied. John 8:54 Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me of whom ye say, that he is your God: It 's One God in three persons. God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost. All three One and all three God but separate. It 's the mystery of Godliness. 2 Corinthians 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
  • Born again 1pet1:23-25 for verse 38
    care of my brother STEPHEN HOOPERS The reason people do not like Acts 2:38,is it donot agree with the doctrine of the Trinity.There is no record of water baptism in the titles or trinity in the word of God.After Jesus rose from the dead,he spoke to the Apostles for forty days,he told them to baptize in the father,and the son,and the holy ghost.The apostles went forth and baptized in the name of jesus.Either jesus is the name of the father,and of the son,and of the holy ghost,or the apostles did not obey what jesus commanded them to do.I believe the apostles were right,they were guided by the holy spirit.I thank God for this truth.God bless apostles Knew THE NAME of this FATHER,SON,HOLY GHOST its not "baptize in the father, and the son and the holy ghost " it should be Baptizing them " "IN THE NAME " " ' singular this is you pastor brother mentor what is you name Stephen Hoopers mathew 28:19 go ye therefore, and teach all nations, Baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost NAME is singular baptizing them " "INTHE NAME " " " "who 's name? " of the FATHER of course who is that Father is the FATHER is a name or a tittle and of the " SON " is the SON is name or a tittle and of the "HOLY GHOST " is the HOLY GHOST is a name or tittle Acts 2:38 then peter said unto them, repent, and be baptized every one of you IN THE NAME of JESUS CHRIST for the remission of sins, and ye SHALL received the gift of HOLY GHOST.
  • Fahim 84 comment Acts 2 verse 35. Actually echtros is singular and the plural is echtroi. here verse 35 would read in Greek " Eosou tesso tous echtrous sou ypopodion ton podion sou "
  • Fahim84 for verse 35
    the Greek source of "foes " translates from Greek: echthros G2190 , this form is in the plural, and as a noun, means "adversary " or "Satan "
  • Boniswa for verse 25
    Its a good scripture its encourages me spiritually thank you
  • Marvin
    Lee you need to read John 's Gospel Chapter 1 verse 3
  • Lilian
    Jesus himself is a perfect obedience to our Holy Father, therefore we must also have obedience to Jesus Christ by following his words. We must not a believers only but we must be also a DOERS in Christ. Our Heavenly Father use John the Baptist in preparation of the coming of Jesus. Even Jesus was baptized by John as his obedience to the Father. He came to fullfill the Scriptures, We must be Born Again in Spirit in order for us to understand his words as God will give us the power of understanding and wisdom. We must walk with Faith and not by Sight. Desciples are the witness from the Life of Jesus and his teaching and blessing, they are also the witness of Jesus Cruxifixion and his Resurrection. Signs, Wonders and Miracles are given into Jesus hands, Jesus used and have commanded all of the desciples to continue and preaching the word of God as Jesus promised that he will never ever leave us nor forsake us. Thanks to Jesus for his precious blood that shed for us. Amen

    There was power in the Holy Ghost, even when Jesus Christ acended in to heaven.
  • James Griffin for verse 38
    Mark 16:16 He believes AND IS baptized shal be saved.
  • Marvin
    Todays Gospel is I Corinthians Chapter 15 verses 1 thru 4. If you like to be saved read Romans Chapter 10 verses 8 thru 13. The Apostle Paul was given the Gospel of Grace. Ephesians Chapter 3 verse 2
  • Ophelia for verse 1
    This was when the holy spirit came and the people started speaking different languages, people couldn 't understand what was going on but if u did believe in God u will understand what they saying.
  • Ms Missey
    The Bible states that there will be few that find the way cause there are so many think that their so wise but are foolish and unlearned in the word... So sorry for the lost and dying and headed to the devils pit. Jesus is the answer it 's still repentance, baptism in Jesus name and the in-filling of the Holy Ghost as in Bible is the only promise that was made to all meaning everyone...... Acts 2:37-47
  • Jacob
    The Church will be taken out before the tribulation happens. Those fascinated with these signs will be deceived. The Christian is to walk by the Bible 2 Corinthians 5:7 For we walk by faith, not by sight: Look at what the Bible says, Jeremiah 10:2 Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven for the heathen are dismayed at them. The Christian is not looking for signs like the Jews 1 Corinthians 1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: The church will see tribulations which are hard times but not the wrath of the tribulation Revelation 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come and who shall be able to stand? Look here 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ. The Antichrist prevails against saints in the tribulation Daniel 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them but not the church Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Look for Jesus Christ to come for His church any minute not the signs for the Jews. Have a nice day.
  • John leong
    earlier this evening, the TV via CNN mentioned the moon turning red. quoting Acts 2:20, "...and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: ". That means, the Lord 's day is imminent! Any time now! And if I 'm not mistaken, the Day of the Lord spells trouble for men on earth. Good night and Godbless, my dear brethren.
  • Sakura cherryblossom for verse 20
    its a sign so its not like people don 't know hes coming back soon hes given many warnings and plenty of chances to all Revelations 6:12 and Acts 2:20 watch and pray
  • Marvin
    First I 'd like to say it 's great to have the Official King James Bible online ministry of different faiths in the King James Bible, that 's what 's still great about America, freedom of religion. I know I have my own faith in believing and that 's in the finished work of Jesus Christ 's Death, Blood and Resurrection. Last I 'd like to say I agree with brother Jacob 's views that I believe he has God 's gift of great wisdom in the Word of God on all his comments he has on all of Acts 2:38. I close this comment believing brother Jacob 's views is needed on the comments that 's been made in Psalm 83.
  • PMZimmer
    3000 and 5000 people received the baptism of the Holy Ghost after water baptism.
  • Jacob
    You only need the English King James Version. It is the Scriptures in English. When you need the Hebrew or Greek translation, God will let you know. For example see Revelation 9:11, etc.
  • Dzramado for verse 36
    I get more confused about the truth of translations and the meaning of greek translation,
  • Marvin
    Amen brother Jacob 's comment on 3 13 2015, 9:52 am... Right on. They just can 't see the Apostle Paul was given the Gospel of the Grace of God through His only Son 's Jesus Christ, Birth, Death and Resurrection. Ephesians Ch. 3, VS.1 thru 8.
  • Jacob
    When Peter quotes Joel in verse 21 neither he nor Joel, at this point, knew the things involved in a Blood atonement for sinners, applied to the soul by a spiritual circumcision Col 2:11-12 . Paul wasn 't saved yet so the mystery wasn 't revealed yet see Eph chapter 3. Repentance and remission of sins Luke 24:47 is known to them but only in the context of John 's baptism cf. Mk 1:4,Acts 2:38. When Peter is in Cornelius ' hime, he is quite startled to learn that REMISSION OF SINS can be obtained by belief alone see Acts 10:45. This shows that a thing can be there without being known, and that the time of revelation of truth has little to do with the ORIGIN of truth. Acts 2:38 contradicts church age doctrine revealed to the apostle Paul EPH 3 . You are saved today by putting your faith and trust in the shed blood of Jesus Christ. The gospel or good news of the Church Age is in 1 Cor 15:1-4 with no water baptism mentioned.
  • DR Duke
    Acts 2 is the birth of the church. Peter stood up with the eleven other Apostles, including the new one. Matthew was present when Peter stood up to preach just as he was in Mathew 28:18-20 which says the eleven was the ones being spoken to. Note: Eleven Mathew did not pull Peter 's Coat tail and demand Peter to cease this Jesus Name Water Baptism. 1 Mattew was pined some 20 years after the events of Acts 2. 2 Acts 2:38 was preached as written for more than 40 years in the Act 's history of the church. 3 Acts 10:44-48, Acts 19:1-7 Paul clearly preaches the same message of Jesus Christ. Repentance, Water baptism in Jesus Name, Baptism of Spirit. Water Baptism was deluted with doctrines of Rome and of men in the 2nd and 3rd century. All records bible and history state that the Apostles agreed on the method and mode of Water baptism in the Name of Jesus up until about the 2nd and 3rd century. It is clear that this was and still is the True Good News of the Founding True fathers of The Early Church!

    Hi Everyone, Do it for your own soul cause if you do not obey the scriptures as the command comes from JESUS himself in Matthew 16:17-19 giving the commission to Peter you will loose your soul and the day of Pentecost Peter spoke and told what must everyone do to be saved in Acts 2. It 's real it 's real and you will never regret that you took the time to yourself and prayed to God above on your Knees asking him to search your heart and cleanse you from all of your sins and of course ask for the Holy Ghost I dare any sincere hearted person to do just what I said, you will begin to fill his presence come upon you but don 't be afraid just keep praying until he fill your soul with this Precious Holy Ghost just try it for your own soul, how could you go wrong talking to the only God above ? God bless everyone!!
