The article approaches the using of the expression ”this is what the Lord says..!” and also other expressions that indicates the Words of God, all of them found in the Book of Acts.The article argues that the using of these expressions, in the redaction of the Book of Acts, is not incidental, but the expressions are chosen with attention and exposes the concern of the Apostles: receiving correctly the words of God, obeying God’s Word and communicate His Word untainted. The using of an expression that indicates the speech of God, „this is what the Lord says…!”, is not an element of novelty in the Book of Acts. The presence of this expression is a continuity of a prophetic tradition of the Old Testament writings. This solemn expression – „this is what the Lord says…!” – shows that the following is a divinely inspired word. The article analyzes the imperative nature of the expressions which indicates the speech of God and proves the exigence in treating these expressions.
