    Amen. I agree. End times are drawing near. People are choosing greed while disregarding morals and values.time is short.

    I have so much to do in the name of my SAVIOR. Time is running out to reach the lost and dying. Israel is fighting for their lives, their country and their sovereignty as a nation. Most in our country as a nation has left its moral foundation in CHRIST and embraced false teachings and an evil life style. May each of us, who claim CHRIST as their LORD and SAVIOR, be diligent and faithful in carrying out our service to the LORD as is given in scripture.

    Luke 2:

    9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

    10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

    11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

    Merry Christmas to all on this platform, and have a prosperous New Year.

    GOD to shine HIS face on all who love HIM.

    Thanks. I see your point.
  • Kevin - In Reply on Acts 9 - 1 year ago
    Thank you for clearing that up. I appreciate it.

    I would like to retract my question because if I had paid attention I would have found my answer in Acts 9 Verse 36.

    If you go to their church you must dress the way they want you to I think it's just respect to them .

    Acts 9:36

    "Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did".
  • Kevin on Acts 9 - 1 year ago
    Did I miss something? In verse 39 the woman's name is Dorcas. Then in verse 40 her name is Tabitha. Is this the same woman?

    When Jesus spoke these words to Saul, Jesus saw a man who was a leader in the Jewish hierarchy, well-versed in the Scriptures & zealous for the things of God. But Jesus, whom Saul persecuted by hunting down & murdering Christians, was telling him that even with all his knowledge & zeal, he was fighting against God & His Holy Commands. "You think you are for God but actually you are against Him".

    So Jesus uses a term that Saul would be familiar with, as when an ox herder would use a goad (long stick with a sharp point) to keep his oxen in check. If the ox wanted to disobey its master, he would then feel the piercing & pain of the goad. The "prick" that Jesus spoke of, was this truth: that Saul was trying all his life to kick (or, forcing his own ways/beliefs) against the "real" Truths from God, but now Saul was being confronted by the resurrected Christ & all Saul's obstinacy & rebellion would no longer work because God's "pricks" were now before Him & they can't be avoided. The time had come for him to realize this & truly submit to God: which he did in all his trembling & brokenness.
  • Caetano Barreto on Acts 9:5 - 3 years ago
    Acts 9:5 (KJV)

    What does "it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks" mean ?
  • Adam - In Reply on Acts 9:18 - 3 years ago
    Hello, its not a typo. The KJV has always used that word. You can view other translations on that verse page to compare to.
  • Donna on Acts 9:18 - 3 years ago
    In Acts 9:16 "For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name's sake." Does it really say "shew?" I am hoping it's a typo on the site. :) If it does say "shew," what does it mean? In context, it looks like it might mean "show." I am not trying to nitpick. I know that the word "shew" isn't going to make or break whether someone feels the spirit, and gains faith in Christ. I am just curious, and I am NOT a troll. Thank you.
  • Joe - In Reply on Acts 9 - 3 years ago
    If you mean Saul - Saul was a Pharisee, of the same belief as the chief priest.

    The Pharisees wanted to persecute everyone who believed in Jesus Christ because Jesus had explained many times the sins of the Pharisees.

    They would not believe and repent, but instead attempted to stop any further preaching/believing because Jesus told them to change their sinful ways and traditions which were not of God.

    In short, the Pharisees were not serving God, but only serving themselves and their way of life; any belief/worship that changed their ways was persecuted.

    God gave all this information to Holy men of God to publish Bibles for this generation. He is NOT a man. He has given man and woman every opportunity to love Him and learn of Him. His son Jesus became all God and son of Man to come to earth to save all mankind. Not willing that ANY should perish but that ALL would come to be born again.

    He gave us 10 simple guidelines to live our lives. Jesus gave us 2 commandments, which take the place of the 10. If we love each other...we'll fulfill the 10. Simple.

    I don't know about you but plenty of people were unfair to me; let me down. I was bleeding out so-to-speak When I came to Jesus. I was crouched on a chair with a vision of hell in my floor and an invisible Hand extended to me, above my head. I grabbed the Hand!! For me that was when life began.

    He's not being mean to people. What is it when people ignore their Creator and choose to be spiritually blind and deaf?

    I'll show you some mercy...all the babies and little children will be taken to heaven at the rapture of the church, world wide. God will not let them suffer. Read all of the book of John. No skipping around. Is Jesus mean?

    Don't be clueless like I was. Just take the Hand of God and walk with Him.

    I asked my mother once why she didn't read the Bible. She countered with being baptized as a child and believing in heaven. I asked her why wouldn't you want to know every thing possible about Someone you want to spend eternity with? She began reading her Bible every day. She died 6 months later. I miss her. I'll see her again.

    Receive Jesus. Let Him have your past and you take His future.

  • GardenPaul on Acts 9 - 4 years ago
    In order not to leave regrets and regrets in life, we should try our best to seize all opportunities to change our lives

    1 Peter 4:11. If any man speake, let him speake as the oracles of God: if any man minister, let him doe it as of the ability which God giueth, that God in all things may bee glorified through Iesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for euer and euer. Amen
  • EROMOSELE CLEMENT EHIMARE on Acts 9 - 4 years ago
    Amazing scripture with so much to learn. first Jesus change Saul's vision from going to Damascus to kill persecute to preaching Christ and leading people to salvation. secondly, God used Ananias to restore Saul's sight, got him saved, baptize, and his name changed from Saul to Paul. third lesson was God working through Peter to raise Dorcas to life. it means God can do any miracle through
  • I Am that Michael Isaac Dale on Acts 9 - 5 years ago
    All unrighteousness is sin: Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever commits sin is the servant of sin. He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. Whosoever is born of God does not commit sin; for his seed remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
  • Sonja Williamson on Acts 9 - 5 years ago
    When we live right and follow GOD'S commandments. We can do exploit like He told us we will do. We will have power to heal the sick, to deliver, and to help set the captive free. We will have power after being endued with the Holy ghost. Although, we sometimes commit sin and allow the devil to use us God knows our heart and He has a purpose for us. He is just to forgive and make us clean to be use
  • Will on Acts 9 - 5 years ago

  • Stephen B on Acts 9 - 5 years ago
    Peter, I am glad to hear of your salvation!! Hopefully we can meet and tell young people about Jesus and not only save a soul but a life as well.
  • Peter on Acts 9 - 5 years ago

    What great faith did Ananias to go do saul and put. His hands on him for he killed the jews people. The name would change to paul

    Verses 40 and 41- Peter followed a procedure similar to that used by Jesus when he resurrected Jairus’ daughter. This is the first reported resurrection performed by an apostle.
  • Sylvia on Acts 9 - 6 years ago
    We belong to Jesus Christ and we have nothing to fear if we stay focused on him. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own undrstanding ( Prov. 3:5) We are not of this world we're just passing through.
  • A disciple on Acts 9 - 6 years ago
    Sharlet; We are commanded by God NOT to follow the multitudes to do evil, and NOT to take up a reproach against our neighbor. Yet there are many who have turned away from the holy commandment and have given their hearts to hearken to lies and slanders. The one who wants to REALLY do this country good, has given up his own private family life, and his hard earned success; is hated and lied about!
  • Sharlet on Acts 9 - 6 years ago
    Acts 9- This chapter can be use to enlighten us as to what God is saying in this fallen world today. Many are wondering about Trump as president but as Christian believers we should be praying and expecting for God's mighty transformation to take place. The pride and ignorance must be removed. God has a plan for America and He knows when and how He will demonstrate this miraculous transformation.
  • Ray321 on Acts 9 - 6 years ago
    2 Peter 2 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned wo
