    Hi Peggie. Do you have a reference to the sudden death of Sergius Paulus?

    Link : original Greek meaning. Other languages use similar words meaning black, like Spanish, Latin, Romanian, and others.
  • Prosper - In Reply on Acts 13 - 1 year ago
    Simon was called Niger because he was a "black" man. The word Niger was in reference to his skin color.
  • T Levis - In Reply on Acts 13 - 1 year ago
    I've understood it to be similar to Simon called Peter: Matthew 4:18, Matthew 10:2, different than Acts 8:9, & Luke, Acts 10:18, Acts 13:1, Acts 13:9, Acts 14:2, notice in Acts, the same book, there are multiple names referenced even a wind, Acts 27:14, Acts 27:8, Hebrews 11:18,

    Matthew 1:6 Jesus called Christ, John 4:25, Luke 6:15, John 1:42, John 11:16, not Colossians 4:11,

    Romans 2:17, Romans 7:3, same supposed writer as Acts , also Romans 9:26

    Matthew 26:14, Luke 23:33, John 19:13, John 19:17, Acts 6:9, Revelation 11:8,

    Revelation 12:9,

    Luke 2:4, Luke 8:2, John 21:2, different than Acts 9:11,

    Acts 1:23, Acts 9:36,

    Colossians 3:15, 1John 3:1,

    Hopefully these are all helpful in your study

    Julie, I don't think there is any such verse in the Bible. Psalm 127:3 says, "children are an heritage of the LORD". The word in Hebrew can signify a "gift or a possession" from the Lord. Then in 1 Samuel 1:11, Hannah, who was once barren but God enabled her because of her vow to Him, gave her a son whom she called Samuel. She then gave him back to the Lord in accordance with her vow & we know that he was a mighty prophet used by the Lord.

    Pastors sometimes refer to this account in the Bible when offering up a child in a Dedication ceremony, as when the child's parents dedicate the little one gifted to them by the Lord, back to Him for His safe-keeping & service. But we know that not only children but all of us have to one day return to the Lord Who made us & give account. So in that sense we all are placed on this Earth for a short time, to enjoy her blessings & the Lord Who made it all for our sake, & then one day we will return to our Maker.

    God abhors homosexuality...He also abhors fornication, when Moses came down from Mt Sinai one time having conversed with God, God struck 23,000 fornicators dead on the spot...We serve a Holy God, we must remember what Holy means...the world does not know the meaning of Holy...they choose not too for then they would have to commit to some type of cleanliness...which turns their stomachs as homosexuality turns ours...

  • Adam - In Reply on Acts 13 - 3 years ago
    No, there's plenty of Bible verses supporting that Jesus is God and part of a trinity. Here's a list: Link

    Your thoughts require complexity and mental gymnastics to arrive to your conclusion, whereas I'm just reading it literally like a child can do and arrive at its natural meaning. So, we already know what the Bible says and the real question is whether you believe in the Bible as God's inspired Word? And if you don't 100% believe it, why not? And what is behind this doubt, satan? Why not just pray to God and ask Him to discover and confirm the truth?

    God bless...

    Wesley Barnard, I disagree about the Word of God not being God. God IS the word of Him. HE wrote the Bible, and we should NOT say bad things about it. I love the Lord, and don't say bad things about the Bible or God. Think about it, SERIOUSLY.
  • AND HE HAD A NAME WRITTEN - In Reply on Acts 13 - 3 years ago
    One of Jesus's Names, which appears only once, is: WORD OF GOD.

    Revelation Chapter 19

    11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

    12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

    13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

    14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

    Comment by Mishael:

    Jesus Christ is: THE WORD OF GOD

    One scripture, in the back of the Bible, but it is undeniably True. Check your Bible again.

    (Anyone reading the Book of Revelation is given a blessing by the Lord. Every time we read it. The Blessing: Revelation 1:3 )

    Compare verse Revelation 1:14 to

    Revelation 19:12 Both refer to Jesus
  • WESLEY BARNARD - In Reply on Acts 13 - 3 years ago
    Adam, you are not even considering verse 18, which tells us Christ could not be The Most High. You must take into consideration the conversation Christ had with those who hated him and accused him of being God. Do you remember it? It is recorded at John 10:24-39. When Christ said: I and the Father are one. They became angry, believing he was making himself equal to The Most High. How did Christ answer their charge? He refers his opposers to a Psalm 82, which records The Most High condemning the judges of Israel, who were perverting justice. Yet He called them 'gods'. Why? Because they had delegated to them judgment of life or death, wielding great power.

    Then Christ concluded with the statement: Say ye of him whom the Father sanctified, and sent into the world, thou blasphemest, because I said I am THE SON OF GOD? (Capitalization mine for emphasis)

    Here Christ clearly defines his relationship with The Most High. He is the Son of The Most High, not The Most High.

    As I tried to explain in my first comment, we have all been duped and deceived by Satan until now. We are now in 'the time of the end' when the Word would no longer be 'shut up' and 'sealed'. However, just as their were those who could not hear the truth coming out of the mouth of Christ, to day the world will not listen to the truth coming out of the mouth of Christ's 'brothers'; the 'predestinated' ones Paul wrote about extensively at Ephesians 1 and 2.

    The truth is available to all men because few have been 'born again'; baptized in water and Spirit. Without Spirit, one cannot hear the words of Christ. To sum up, you have heard the truth, backed up by Scripture. You must decide whether you should continue to cling to the deceptions that have hypnotized the world or pray for The Most High's Holy Spirit to grant you understanding.

    Peace, seeker of truth.
  • Adam - In Reply on Acts 13 - 3 years ago
    Disagree. John 1:1 contradicts what you just said. It says "the Word was God" and you just said the Word was "not" God.

    This reminds me how Genesis 3:3-4 Eve said they'll die if they eat the fruit and satan said "Ye shall not surely die." - the exact opposite of the truth.

    Satan is the father of lies, he deceives people, even people who think they are right, he's usually the one behind it all.

    So, since you're claiming something other than John 1:1 is true, how do we know you're not the one who is deceived? What is the evidence that what you're saying is the truth and not a heresy from satan?

    God bless...
  • WESLEY BARNARD - In Reply on Acts 13 - 3 years ago
    John 1:1 The Word of God is NOT God. The Word was sent forth the represent and articulate The Most High's repentance to Israel, which was 'lost'. A verse 18 testifies: No man has seen God at any time. This fact cannot be denied. Christ was the 'light to the Gentiles' at Isaiah 49:6 foretold. Paul also testifies that The Most High is the only one having immortality and no man has seen him. These facts tell us Christ, the Word of The Most High is not God.

    Indeed, Revelation 12:9 is cited, which exposes another humbling truth: We have all been deceived by Satan the Devil. His deceit has been so thorough that billions worship Christ as God, unknowingly. The Most High has a personal name at Psalm 83:18, Yahovah, yet we never hear His Holy Name. Why? Who wants to erase that name? Satan the Devil, who has deceived the whole world.

    However, we have now entered a period of enlightenment, if we choose to pursue it. Daniel 12:4 tells us that 'the book', the Bible, would 'shut up' and 'sealed' until when? Until 'the time of the end'. Few would argue that we are NOT living in 'the time of the end'. Yet, how many of us are prepared to accept and absorb the 'knowledge increased' promised?

    Indeed, you have just been presented with several new revelations: the worship of Christ is IDOLATRY, for he is not Yahovah and we have all been 'deceived', tricked, fooled by Satan, the Father of the Lie. We have learned that the Word of God has been 'sealed' and 'shut up' for millennia until now. Now, we have access to the truth if we want it. However, to have access to it, we must be 'born again', spiritually recreated as a new creation. Can we receive it? Pray for Spirit from Yahovah, The Most High Elohim and He will give it to you. This is what Christ died and shed his blood for - the truth. Shalom dear ones.

    On ACTS 13:24

    The Word of God is God ( John 1:1) and is not of any private interpretation ( 2 Peter 1:20).

    The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting, repentings) is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translated from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.

    It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God ( Acts 26:18).

    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived ( Rev. 12:9) and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive ( Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).

    You need not that any man teach you ( Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), as mankind follows after an image of a false god and a false Christ ( Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Gal. 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Rev. 12:9).

    It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ ( Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1), and only then will you be able to overcome the spirit of this world ( 1 John 5:4; Rev. 3:21) and learn what 'True Repentance' means, and how this whole world has been deceived ( Rev. 12:9). It should also be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it ( Matthew 7:14).

    LUKE 15:10. LIKEWISE, I SAY UNTO YOU, THERE IS JOY IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ANGELS OF GOD OVER ONE SINNER THAT REPENTETH
