Acts Chapter 24 Discussion

    You're on a great quest Eric to diligently read God's Word through in a year. Failure to achieve this matters little as many other things come upon us demanding our time & attention - but that you keep at it & to meditate upon it when you sense you need to dig deeper or to what the Spirit might be telling you, is of greater worth. The Lord bless you in your readings during this new year.

    Hi Eric

    I am reading a biograph on Paul and read on this event with Felix.

    It read that Felix did not fnd reason to charge Paul but put him under guard to protect him from the Jewish leaders.

    He then had him transferred to another city under escort by the guards to get him away from the Jerusalem leaders.

    Judge Felix expected Paul to bribe him out of prison, but only got a preach from Paul. The jews bribed the Judge and kept Paul in prison. This was my understanding of the chapter.

    I didn't complete the challenge of bible in a year, but here I am continuing and I believe is what God would want to continue vs giving up.

    Not so, my friend, as a man dies as a Christian, He is asleep in CHRIST,,,, not so for the one who dies with out a Saviour.

    Verse 15~there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous. Many will have a chance to build a relationship with Jehovah God under perfect conditions.

    Acts 24-31, scripture to learn from. Leviticus 18.
    All people are from the blood line of Adam and Eve. I want to correct something I wrote earlier; I wrote that Cain would have married his sister. But scripture does not tell us who Cain married. So, I repent of that comment.

    Felix; for at least 2 YEARS he heard the truth of God's word. He well KNEW the way of salvation - from Paul. The Bible is silent on how he turned out, but even after 2 yrs. of hearing about the sin of the love of money, covetousness - he still was hoping for money from Paul. He hadn't learned by then, so ............only God knows.

    "But this I confess unto thee, that after the way they call HERESY, so worship I the God of my fathers, believing all things written in the Law and the Prophets."

    Verse 26 shows that Felix had ulterior motives.
  • Thomas on Acts 24
    Verse 14-16 sums up this chapter to me, the Christian should strive to duplicate what is written in scripture not what is misinterpreted over the pulpit and pews. so I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God and man. Bless His name.

    I read what they said will happen to A person when He or she die. but I had the opportunity to go to the other side. and be here to talk about it.I was in A turkey accident and it look like no way out I was in A truck that was on fire and I couldn 't excape. my soul left my body and the fire that was around the truck wasn 't going to harm me I was going into A world of fire. that was Hell at that time God put my soul back in my body and give me the courage to put my hand in the fire and exit that truck. answer to the question Hell was their plain is can be. when A person Die they aren 't no pain ounce my soul left my bad I could have burn to crust in that and feel nothing.

    This makes a person stop and think. What 's going through my mind. Is it void of offense?
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson on Acts 24
    Hello Grant No, Paul did not make a mistake. The Bible states in Hebrews 9 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment . If a person, now under the grace age, dies without following Acts 2 38 they are lost. Yes, they go to hell. If a person dies having put on the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ name then that person sleeps waiting the great day of the rapture. When those people in hell are called to stand before the Great White Throne Judgment this is the final judgment. The will find themselves going into the lake of fire which is the second death, Revelation 20 11 thru 15.
  • Grant on Acts 24:15
    Catholics think that when a person dies they go to heaven or hell. I say to these unbelievers what about the resurrection? If souls are in heaven, did Paul get it wrong? He said there is going to be a resurrection for EVERYONE. In their reasoning they catholics think that the souls in heaven will have to go back to earth and be judged again!!! Not a bible teaching!

    I really love this chapter of The trial before Felix. The Jews from the province of Asia had accusation on Paul, and had plot to kill him for his believe. They lie on him and said that he had stirr up riots and was a ringleader,and a troublemaker.Paul told Felix,governor,and the commander that he was just doing his father business,that there was not no crowd around him to be stirr for a riot,but he testify about the goodness of JESUS, Felix saw what was in Paul and wanted to use that for his own benefits by keeping him lock up in prison to find him a bribe.That makes me think of when GOD use you to do the work of GOD,people look at it as what can I get out of that person. So they will call you when they sick,need money,food,job problems,and etc.for prayer like GOD only save certain people.( John 14:6)I am the way,the truth,and the life,no man cometh unto the father,but by me.(Matt20:16)Many are call,but few few are choosen(Rom10:13)For whosoever shall call upon the name of the LORD shall be saved.So it is for all to recieve the HOLY SPIRIT and be save.Now this is the day of salvation; tommrrow may be to late.
