And he said unto them, Verily, I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.
That verse of scripture has been used by some to claim that the Bible is false, because they claim this means that Jesus was saying there were people in his audience that would not die till he returned again. Is that really what he is saying? No. What he is speaking of is what takes place in Acts 2:1-4
And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
This event is what Jesus spoke of. Many that were in his audience saw this event come to pass. They saw the kingdom of God come with power. Acts 1:8 says the following.
But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
That is the day the Spirit was first poured out, and the gift of the Holy Ghost is still available to all Christians today, if they will only receive it. While it is not a requirement for salvation, we still receive power after we receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost.
For this promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. Acts 2:39
Mans inability to discern Gods Word is shameful in these days and times. Even though the “modern” countries have all the computers and books At their disposal, those who are being saved are those in “poor” Countries....I ask, arent they so much richer in Christ because He is more real to them then are all the comforts or knowledge Of this fallen world?
I look forward to seeing my brothers and sisters Who have died for Christ, to hug them and let Them know I have been praying for them. I am nothing, no thing, compared to what they And Jesus have suffered.
I am only here by Gods love. What can I do with Gods love but share it and Tell people all about Him? That’s the least I can do for the rest of my life@
www.azquotes.com/author/18813-Adrian_Rogers It is better to be divided by truth than to be united in error. It is better to speak the truth that hurts and then heals, than falsehood that comforts and then kills. It is better to be hated for telling the truth than to be loved for telling a lie. It is better to stand alone with the truth, than to be wrong with a multitude. It is better to ultimately succeed with the truth than to temporarily succeed with a lie. There is only one Gospel.
