12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Here they are assured Jesus cares about the lame man or any diseased body. No one else can cure yes Doctors can give medications or perform surgery but not one of them can heal a person of all deformities. No one can save but Jesus alone for remember He created us and knows how to minister to our need of good mental health, attitude and behavior. It is the Lord doctrine to save, fill and heal as we surrender to His will and not give way to having our way that can’t perform in a way that blesses us for it is Gods way, truth and life that we must accept abiding in. Is not salvation our chief concern, that is being saved from wrath and the curse of sins trespasses. We can’t find it in ourselves to be saved regardless of how much power of education, understanding, knowledge of wisdom. It is simply yielding our wells for God well that brings healing to the body, soul and spirit of any man or women. We can destroy ourselves but never save ourselves. No religious denomination can save us or institution of Higher learning. It is Christ alone that gives and takes life away. He created man to not last forever. He created nature to wear out and die and we see it every day, But He created man to die out to sin so they could be dead men walking in the newness of life created by God that happen when we are born again. This name God Jesus the Holy Spirit is given by God so let’s accept His goodwill and peace. The Lord reigns not only in Heaven but here on this earth if we would only let Him by trusting and obeying Him. 13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. Now they heard the promise of the truth of God words, they have a tongue but when our tongues are full of the Holy Spirit hearts are amazed and can’t help but believe. Here Peter was a lowly fisherman and John was the beloved and both had a renewed experience being full of the Holy Spirit so people that heard them were amazed and marveled at what they had done for they saw this lame man walk leap and shout with praise unto the Lord. We are being seen, rather we are walking with the joy of the Lord, or the sad spirit of the world. Can’t kid your behavior or attitude about God His Church and one another. They could not deny this lame man walking, they saw something that was marvelous and wonderful.

We are seeing again the Pharisees and Sadducees appear again as they did with Jesus. The spectacular events for the last few days are now wearing off and they begin to question what happen, as they do not want to accept reality. Lord help us to see reality is, Your alive and well on planet earth, to set people free of doubt and shame. We are going to see the Kingdom of God and the powers of Darkness appearing against God and His servants.
Acts 4 King James Version (KJV)
And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them, Here Peter and John are still talking of what just had happen. They were now teaching the knowledge of how to abide in the vine. With the pouring out of the spirit of God that is now present in them, as they are controlled by God to do what they are doing, as if Jesus was still with them. There are always people who do not want to accept the tongue as an instrument that needs to be controlled by God. For Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks is seen here by the Disciple and those grieved by the Holy Spirit. People do not like to be told what to do and get very vocal about what Christian are proclaiming; Jesus loves you. How can He when so many people are suffering from getting shot by guns, how can He when we are seeing people killed by war, how can we when we see Governments and our economy driven by greed for power. The Disciples are verifying Christ is alive He did resurrect. We are now secured in Christ as we believe in Him. He is the Alpha and Omega beginning and end.
Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead. This is the Gospel in a nut shell, Jesus is alive and wants us to be alive and not dead with the sins that destroys the bodies 5 senses; ears, eyes, mouth, nose and feeling. Then destroys our conscience, imagination, reason, memory and affection for what is right, so our Spirits are destroyed by our spirit five senses; faith, hope, reverence, worship and prayer. That is the reason we see so many dead people walking I their sins they omit from their thinking. God gave us life, so He owns us and wants us to obey His way, truth and life and when we do, we have peace like a river flowing under control of what we say and do, for God is enabling us to trust and obey Him
And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide. It is amazing today how many wants to lay hand on Godliness and Godly people to destroy them, Christian Persecution is one of the biggest human rights issue today. They are discriminated against at work, school in business and they risk sexual violence torture and much more. Over 240 million Christian living where they experience high levels of persecution. 4,305 Christian killed for their faith. 1,847 Churches and other Christian building attacked. 3,150 believers detained without trial arrested, sentenced or imprison.
Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand. Here at Pentecost we see 3,000 filled with the Holy Spirit and now another 5,000 hear and believe the Gospel. It seems like the more an area suffers, the more people accept the Lords love, mercy and grace.

11 And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch that is called Solomon's, greatly wondering. Here we see people where influenced by what happened to this lame man who know is walking shouting and praising the Lord, who they know was lame from birth. He is now a vessel the Lord is using to bring glory to the Kingdom of God. Not only was his body healed, his total being was different. Gods mercy is perfected when we are abiding in the sanctification of the Lords love, mercy and grace. They were astonished at this wonderful miracle and in total amazement, greatly wondering. Just like earlier when they were all filled with the Holy Spirit speaking in a new tongue. They could not believe people could talk in a language they had not learned and here they are amazed at this miracle and wanted to hear what happened.

12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? Remember Peter was watching and seeing so he saw the questioning and know what happen, so began to preach giving a message greater than what Solomon could deliver. Here he saw the fallow ground, ready to accept the seed of the Gospel that needed to be sown. He saw the people adore this miracle and wanted to direct them to the healer, Jesus the Christ who had appeared to them forty days after He had arisen from the grave and left giving them the promise of the Holy Spirit. He did not want them to see Him, or John, but Jesus’s Holy Spirit that gave new life to anyone that believes to rise and walk. It is not because of a preacher, or evangelist, or prophet we are saved, but Jesus only. It is certainly not us, but the Lords own invention that seals us into His family. Here he is talking to men of Israel. Why are you so surprised and marveled? This is what Christ did many times even when He raised Lazarus from the dead. We need to be convinced God is alive and wants to do mighty works among us. We are a church that Is alive for we are humbled by many time how few accept this way, truth and life
13 The God of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Jesus; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go. Peter is not praising his name, but in the name of Jesus Christ, God Son as the holy Spirit gives his tongue the ability to speak to where it grows and God name is glorified, as it was through Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Jesus Christ our Lord. Notice Peter says boldly.
14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; You denied Jesus and delivered Him up to be crucified. Pilate wanted to let Him go, but you turned against Him and Said, Crucify Him, who He could have been your king. Look today at how many deny the Lord wants to rule and reign, but thinks He is a dictator preventing you from doing your thing.  Here your worse than Pilate, you denied the holy one the just one who proved who He was, by being alive and now seeing this miracle of the lame man walking and leaping for joy. Yes you killed a murderer a destroyer of life and destroyed the Savior, the author of Life. You killed the prince of life, not only forsook but rebelled against your own mercies. He could have been your life.
15 And killed the Prince of life, whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses. What a shocking statement Peter embarrassed them to let them see what a terrible thing they did yet God raised Him from the dead and appeared for 40 days to prove to all He was alive that was witnessed by thousand’s. So now he proves it was this same Jesus who gave this lame man a healing.
16 And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. It is our faith in God that makes us strong to stand up and walk and leap for joy, so that all who see and hear can also believe. Here Peter and John had no doubt seen this man but did not know him until he obeyed the command rise up and walk. Lord help us to not get to the place where we want to cop out but want to refresh our faith and be renewed in our faith to where we completely surrender to God will again. Not by power but by the will of God or spirit of God. This is the gift that God gave to every one of us when we accept abiding in Him, so we produce good will and peace to all. Not only did he receive a healing in the body but in his souls five senses, Memorynot lame walk and leap now. His imaginationwas real, reality was I can walk and leap. His reasonwas by faith I will stand. His consciencewas alive he was excited about Peter and John stopping to even talk with him. Then his affection was full of excitement yelling a leaping for joy. Lord help us to be mentally sound in our minds so we are not sick with the pains of the world.
Note now how he addresses them
17 And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers. Calling them Brethren is a complement for they were alive and he did not cast them aside, but included them as people needing help. Do you want to help people become better; praise them, lift them up. You did what you did for you did not see this that your seeing now. Here Peter was applying to their senses for they are now seeing the wonder of Gods healing power. Then he goes on to say;
