Acts 21
10 And as we stayed many days, a certain prophet named Agabus came down from Judea. 11 When he had come to us, he took Paul’s belt, bound his own hands and feet, and said, “Thus says the Holy Spirit, ‘So shall the Jews at Jerusalem bind the man who owns this belt, and deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.’

I imagine this must have been weird. First the guy grabs Paul’s belt, then proceeds to tie himself up.

However, it is hard to understand whether these are warnings NOT to go to Jerusalem, or just people telling Paul his fate.

Acts 21:4 And finding [a]disciples, we stayed there seven days. They told Paul through the Spirit not to go up to Jerusalem.

So was Paul disobedient?

I was reading this:

Others say that Paul was right and that it was the disciples who were wrong, that they should not have tried to stop him, because Paul was following an inner leading of the Spirit which they should have acknowledged. But that is to ignore three crucial words — it was “through the Spirit” that they told Paul not to go on to Jerusalem.

What are your thoughts?
