  • Why sin hurts on Acts 7:56
    1 Corinthians 6:12

    All things are lawful unto me, but all things are NOT expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

    1 Corinthians 10:23

    All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify NOT.

    Comment: We're free to go out drinking, but we might total our car.

    You can smoke but you may reap cancer.

    Doesn't it make better sense to cherish the Holy Spirits fellowship? Why grieve Him?

    Or quench the Holy Spirit?

    If we are born again..He comes to dwell within us.

    1 Peter 3:22 - Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.

    Acts 5:31 - Him hath God exalted with his right hand [to be] a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

    Acts 2:33 - 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.

    Hebrews 1:13 - But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

    What is missing from your search?

    Acts 7:56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.

    How was he stoned.?
  • Carleton - in Reply on Acts 7:38
    As Saul held the coats, these men held the self- righteousness by stones and aimed them at Stephen in a very false hope that the Law would be satisfied outside of the Chosen One whom Stephen clearly knew.

    Yes it is.
  • Evelyn Pearson on Acts 7:55
    I know that KJV is God's preserved word perfect. So I'm trying to understand this verse Acts 7:55. It says Jesus is at God's right hand but I honestly was thinking Jesus is Lord thy God cause in 1 John 5:7 kjv it says they are as one. Can you explain this to me so I can explain it to others as well, because this was a questions that others have asked me as well. And he has to be God Says he was God manifest in the flesh as well.

    Likewise, in John 1:1-14, we're told that God sent forth His Word into the world (this was similar to His Word that He gave to the prophets to speak to Israel) but now He sends it to His people as the time for dealing with their sins had come (Romans 5:6, 1 Timothy 2:6). But to accomplish the payment for their sins (& ours), God required that every sinner had to pay for his/her sins with death & eternal separation from Him. Yet, because of His great Love for us (John 3:16), & desiring our full restoration, He could have no other option, than to give of Himself for us. So the Word (part of the God-head) He sent out to His people would also be the Word that was clothed in humanity purely for the purpose of dying for us (a substitutionary death), so that we wouldn't suffer. So His Word came, given a body as ours, named Jesus (also called Immanuel = God with us), so people not only heard God's Message & got a wonderful glimpse of the Character & Wisdom of God & most importantly, had the payment of their sins made at Calvary. So when we read that Jesus sits at the right hand of God, He is there as the resurrected ascended Lord, now 'physically' distinct in the God-head because of His humanity, yet in a glorified body: just as we will be when we're in Heaven (1 John 3:2).

    Evelyn, just to add to the other good comments you received.

    As you have done, we need to refer to the Scriptures so as to learn a Truth, even though at times it's difficult to humanly comprehend (e.g. a Triune God). According to the Scriptures (1 John 5:7) there are "there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." There is one God & that one God is fully seen (or, expressed) in His Three Persons (Father, Word & Holy Spirit). Just as if a friend was talking with you, she would just see her friend Evelyn, in front of her. But if she were able to see you in a complete way, she would be aware of your physical (body), your soul & spirit: all parts that make you who you are. So God too, reveals Himself to His creation as the only True God. But unlike us, constrained by the physical & because He is only Spirit without Body, He can perform different functions or works in different places & in different ways.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Acts 7:55
    If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.

    But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.

    But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

    Comment:

    Some things have to be believed in FAITH.

    A Christian does not have to be drawn into debates about whether God is the Father, The Son is God or the third person of the Godhead is God the Holy Spirit. Each is separate but all 3 are God.

    There's a lot written about debates and the fact you and (these) friends are debating the known Truth; tells me that none are reading their Bibles, Chapter after Chapter. You cannot "spot read " and learn any continuity of thought.

    Try staying in the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) and see how they all agree in scripture. Which you are doubting.

    This is a link. Really read it slow; word by word. John 3.

    Back in front of Revelation; Read 1 John, 2 John, 3 John

    If you still doubt, you may need to be sure you are born again. John 3. A person can agree mentally about salvation but fail somehow to receive the Holy Spirit; YOUR TEACHER.

    These scriptures are of the Godhead speaking to each other. Click on the links:

    Genesis 1:26

    Genesis 11:7

    Genesis 3:22

    Hi Evelyn -

    In a human sense there are several ways to explain God as one.

    I am a son to my parents, I am a brother to my siblings, I am a husband to my wife, and I am a father to my children. I am different to each of them, but I am one and the same person.

    Let's look at H2O = water. It is one thing, yet it has 3 elements. Also, there is wet liquid, a solid when frozen, and a mist or fog when sprayed. It is 3 in one.

    I hope this helps. May God Bless Your Days. Keep reading the Scriptures, and praying, as God will open your eyes to His wonderful being through His Word. He is One.
  • JIMMY L JOSEPH II on Acts 7:38
    The "church" is the people. They were referred to as the "congregation" in the old testament. The tabernacle or temple of the Lord is the physical location where they worshiped.
  • Vincent on Acts 7:43
    "...star of your god Remphan..."

    Anybody wanting an interesting study;

    A six pointed star as a symbol of the god of Saturn.

    Kinda sounds familiar does it not? A pagan symbol that has plagued the Jewish people for centuries. Where did the "star of David come from?"
  • Steve Moyer you only allow so many words on Acts 7:38
    I have alway been confused with this verse in the KJB;

    Acts 7:38 This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and with our fathers: who received the lively oracles to give unto us:r

    It reads, "a church in the wilderness!" There were no buildings that people called a "church" when Acts was written. Also, many believe the KJV is the only reliable translation. Do you think our Father's Holy word would have another man's name on it Acts 17:24-25 reads in the KJV, 4 "God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

    25 Neither is worshipped with men"
  • Joe - in Reply on Acts 7
    Steve - I believe the church mentioned is also the tabernacle, aka tent, which the Israelites had during their exodus from Egypt - not a building as we see today.
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Acts 7:38
    Acts Chapter 7: 35 This Moses whom they refused, saying, Who made thee a ruler and a judge the same did God send [to be] a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of the angel which appeared to him in the bush.

    36 He brought them out, after that he had shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.

    37 This is that Moses, which said unto the children of Israel, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear.

    38 This is he, that was in the church in the wilderness with the angel which spake to him in the mount Sina, and [with] our fathers: (this is saying the CHURCH was with Moses)

    Michelle...I have a list of how the apostles died (open to debate of course), but maybe because of its content, KJB Online is not permitting its posting. Sorry.
  • Chris on Acts 7
    Maria...I doubt if you could get a correct answer, given the different ways people can understand and apply these verses. I see the Earth as having had a foretaste of the contents of the seals, and those who have suffered leading to death, or starvation or martyrdom, could certainly believe that the contents of the seals were upon them. However, I still look at these Judgements (Seal, Trumpet, & Vial) as part of God's Wrath upon the world in what we know as the Great Tribulation, a time of incredible suffering as has not see before. I don't believe we have come to this point, though as we progress, we see a continual deterioration in men's hearts & also signs for Anti-Christ's introduction.
  • Maria JNieves on Acts 7
    I have been asked elsewhere ..about what timeline of the Seals are we at

    I , myself think it's the 6th or 7th seal broken .please someone correct me if I may be wrong ..I honestly don't get as much into Bible as before ...
  • DEACON HURDLE on Acts 7
    Explain Acts 7 58 59
  • Prophetdada on Acts 7
    In verses 55 56, Stephen saw heaven opened, he saw the glory of God His son, before he died. It means Stephen made heaven he saw Jesus...So, no matter who we are, it is important to see Jesus before we die...let heaven recognise us, so as to make heaven.
  • Isabella on Acts 7
    It is interesting to note that Paul then Saul was present when Stephen was stoned. At the time he was a persecutor of the early Christians, however, he was paying close attention to the sermon as seen in Acts 13. Here Paul picks up exactly where Stephen left off preaching. So if anyone is interested in hearing the rest of the sermon, be sure to take a look at Acts 13!
  • David Merenda - in Reply on Acts 7
    Awesome...thanks!
  • Brent Cairns on Acts 7
    Joe Montgomery. Verse 45 tells us that the Son of God, Jesus was present as Israel walked through the land of Moab, leading Joshua into the promised land. Jesus is the Captain of the Lord of Hosts and was worshipped by Joshua, prior to crossing the Jordan River and going over to the Canaanite cities of Gilgal, Jericho etc.
  • David Merenda - in Reply on Acts 7
    Awesome...just another amazing thing that never registered with me!
  • Tee Dee on Acts 7
    Verse 6: ...that they should bring them into bondage, and entreat them evil four hundred years.. HR 1242 115th Congress - 400 YEARS OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN HISTORY COMMISSION ACT Deuteronomy 28:66: And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee... Gennesis 15:13 - 14: ..and they shall afflict them four hundred years.. Time is up people.
  • Dina on Acts 7
    Joe Montgomery, my Spanish King James reads “Josué,” not “Jesus.” Josue translated to English is Joshua. And that makes sense because this verse is referring to Joshua taking Israel into the Promised Land. Hope this helps.
  • Vanessa on Acts 7
    the star of Remphan, Irene is a pagan star, the Jewish state has the star of David. GB
  • ALEX on Acts 7
