    Why does he like to persacute people?
  • Joe
    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 repentance....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.

    In order not to leave regrets and regrets in life, we should try our best to seize all opportunities to change our lives

    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 us.et

    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.

    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

    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

    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
    i wish when i was young that someone would of told me about Jesus but now i now that he is the only way and i will keep him first in my life .

    Wonderful how God of Isreal can change a mans life
  • Douglas Gilbert Wells
    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.

    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 (Proverbs 3:5) We are not of this world we're just passing through.

    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
    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.

    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

    Hello Brother Peter; thank you very much; your posts are always uplifting! Do you ever wonder what in the world happened to Christianity, seeing it had such a powerful success in the beginning? Something happened! The beast and the false prophet happened, in the form of Islam; that has relentlessly destroyed the Church for 1400 years and does still to this day. So many are offended and fall away.

    Acts 9:15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior had chosen Apostle Paul for the Gentiles. This will be the most important time in Paul's life when Jesus speak to him. It will change the world for ever, the Grace age of the Church . Praise the Lord.
  • A disciple
    Ray; isn't it interesting too that the Lord didn't go ask the others first? But hearing the prayers of the Saints who were afraid of "this guy" He did something no one expected! The kind of man Saul of Tarsus was before he came to repentance and conversion didn't hide from God what He knew he could be and the Lord knew just how to bring that about. Paul was a very special brother: a great example!

    Lu2677; in Galatians Paul gives a lengthy account of his growth in the Lord, which went over many years. Adding to that the narrative in Acts, how that he was with the Brethren in Antioch-Syria, and that it wasn't until the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them; that his name was changed, (at least in the narrative).
  • Lu2677
    I think what Bryan K. meant when he said "the moment Saul was converted to Paul" Is that ""Saul became a Christian", But most people think of him as Paul, not so much that he was immediately called Paul. I see only one place between 9-13 that mentioned a long period of time and this is a year. I don't see " many years" before he is called Paul. If you have a verse otherwise let me know.
  • Lu2677
    Bruce, Acts 9:3-9 Saul,later called Paul was met by God on the Road to Damascus, Saul trembled and was astonished. God blinded Saul and he did not eat or drink for 3 days.No where in the Bible does it teach that when God draws/calls someone they have to be blinded or fast for 3 days.So your term "tug on the heart" is your own fabrication of John 6:44. You insist on using your term against me.
  • Lu2677
    To say "1 Corinthians 15:1-4 is the gospel that saves; not John 3:16", is silly.They mean the same thing.When Paul said "my gospel" it is because in Christ;Christ's gospel is Paul's gospel.Paul taught what Jesus taught, plus things that God inspired him to live and teach. Yes, learning from Paul and living out his gospel saves, a state that is progressive. His gospel belongs to the body of Christ
  • A disciple
    Bryan Katchay; Where do you get the idea that Saul was immediately Paul when he was converted? The Scriptures don't say that until many years after, when he was with the Brethren in Antioch. Also, the notion that he is the greatest man ever since Jesus, and that he alone is who we should follow, Paul would never agree to. "Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed,"
  • Bryan Katchay
    The moment Saul was converted to Paul, he became the only Apostle to us, Gentiles. Remember that all of Paul's writings was Jesus/the Holy Spirit speaking to us, not Paul himself. Since the mysteries of our Salvation was given only the Paul, he became after Jesus, the second greatest man to walk the earth. 1 Corinthians 15: 1-4 is the Gospel that saves, not John 3:16. Read Romans 2:16

    Verses 4-9 Jesus called unto Saul to ask why he had done what he had done but Saul said unto Jesus I don't understand what you are saying unto me what must I do for he did not know that they were only affected by his power
  • Roy Kelley
    I think saul was a mighty man until he crossed paths with the mightier God could have easily killed him but the scripture said CHRIST came not to destroy mens life but to save them its called mercy thats one reason God says blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy
