THE ACTS OF THE APOSTLES

CHAPTER 10
 

          Back for a lil more Daily Bread study from the book of the Acts of the Apostles, I see. Awesome ... So many people choose to read many other different kinds of literature, when the Word of God, is the best book ever written, AND, you can read it over and over again, and youíll understand something new every time.

VISION OF PETER

VISION OF PETER STUDY ON VISION OF PETER STORY WITH VISION OF PETER MESSAGE

          Our study begins with a man in Cśsarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band. Now letís stop here for two tiny little Daily Bread Crumbs. The first one is a review of a previous Crumb. A centurion is a captain of 100 soldiers. The second one is the definition of the word band. A band in this case, is a mass of men that are Italian military cohorts. So, from this we can assume that Cornelius is a Roman (Gentile) officer living in Cśsarea, who is in charge of a squad of 100 soldiers.

          Cornelius was a man devoted to the Lord. He and his family feared God, gave much charity to the people, and prayed to God always. One day at about 3 p.m. he had an open vision of an Angel of God coming in to him, and saying, Cornelius.

          Time for a Daily Bread Stick! What is an open vision? Itís a vision that occurs when a person is conscious and an evident message is given to them from God. Itís like a dream, only the person receiving the vision is awake. In the Old Testament itís described as being in a trance with your eyes open.

          When Cornelius looked at the Angel, he was afraid and said, What is it, Lord? The Angel said to him, Your prayers and your alms have been noticed by God. Now, send men to Joppa, and ask for Peter, who lodges with Simon the tanner, whose house is by the seaside. Heíll tell you what you should do.

          When the Angel left, Cornelius called two of his household servants, and a godly soldier of those who served him continually. He told them about the vision and sent them to Joppa. The next day, as they traveled and came near to the city, Peter went up on the housetop to pray at about noon. He became very hungry, and would have eaten, but while they prepared food, he fell into a trance.

          He saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel coming down upon him, like a great sheet, drawn together at the four corners, and let down to the earth. There were all kinds of four footed beasts of the earth and wild animals, and creeping things and birds of the air in it. And a voice came to him saying, Get up Peter. Kill and eat.

          But, Peter said, Oh no, Lord, Iíve never eaten anything thatís common (unsanctified) or unclean. The voice spoke to him again a second time, What God has cleansed, do not call common. This was done three times and the vessel was taken up again into heaven.

VISION OF PETER LESSON WITH VISION OF PETER EXPLANATION

          While Peter wondered in his heart what this vision meant, the men who were sent from Cornelius had asked for directions to Simonís house and stood outside the gate, asking whether Peter was there. While Peter thought about the vision, the Spirit said to him, Look, three men are looking for you. Get down from the roof and go with them, doubting nothing, because I sent them. Peter went down to the men and said, Iím the one youíre looking for. Why have you come? They said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one who fears God, and of good reputation among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by a holy Angel to send for you at this house and to listen to you.

          You can sense that the Gentiles still feel that the Jewish people think of them as inferior, the way they felt like they had to justify Corneliusí worthiness of Peter to go see him. He called them in and gave them accommodations, and the next day, Peter went away with them with certain friends from Joppa accompanying. The next day they entered into Cśsarea, and Cornelius waited for them, and had invited his relatives and neighboring friends.

          As Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet and worshipped him. Put Peter lifted him up, and said, Stand up, I myself am also a man. And as he talked with him, he went inside, and found that many were gathered together. Peter said to them, You know how it is an unlawful thing for a man that is Jewish to keep company or go to the home of someone from another nation, but God has shown me that I shouldnít call any man common or unclean. So I came to you without argument, as soon as I was sent for. Now I ask you, for what reason you have sent for me?

          Cornelius answered, Four days ago, I was fasting until this hour, and at 3 p.m. I prayed in my house and suddenly a man stood in front of me in bright clothing and said, Cornelius, your prayer is heard and your alms have been noticed by God. Send to Joppa and call Peter here, and when he arrives, heíll speak to you. So I immediately sent for you and it was good of you to come. Weíre all present here before God now, to hear all the things that are commanded to you, of God.

          Remember here, that Peter is used to the concept of spreading the Good News to the Jewish people ONLY, because when Jesus was with the apostles, Jesus said that He was there for the lost sheep of Israel. But the Lord has just opened Peterís eyes to the fact that it is now the Time of the Gentiles and there is no impartiality of nations, He wants everyone to be saved. Peter said:
 

Of a truth, I perceive that God has no favoritism in people, but in every nation, whoever fears Him, and works righteousness, is accepted with Him. The word that God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ, (He is Lord of all) that word, I say, you know, which was published throughout all Judśa and began from Galilee, after the baptism that John preached, how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power, who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with Him.

And we are witnesses of all things that He did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree: God raised Him up the third day, and showed Him openly; not to all the people, but to witnesses chosen before God. To us He appeared, who did eat and drink with Him after He rose from the dead. And He commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick (living) and dead. All the prophets witnessed about Him, that through His name, whoever believes in Him will receive forgiveness of sins.
 

VISION OF PETER INFORMATION WITH VISION OF PETER MEANING

          While Peter was still speaking, the Holy Ghost fell on all those who heard the Word. These are gentiles and they had not been baptized with water but the Holy Spirit came upon them anyway. The Jewish people who believed (those who came with Peter) were surprised, because the gift of the Holy Ghost was also poured out on the Gentiles.

          They heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then Peter asked, Can any man forbid water, that these shouldnít be baptized, who have received the Holy Ghost as well as we have? And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. And they asked Peter to stay with them for awhile.

          The Lord works in mysterious ways alright! Sometimes you may receive a message from God in a dream or in a vision, and you may not know the meaning of it until a later time. The important thing is to open your heart to Him, because you never know if Heís guiding you in the way to saving a soul for Him.

          Hereís another great thing to note. Peter spoke to Cornelius and his friends and family for the space of about one minute, and they believed and received the Holy Spirit within that time. He can work through you that quickly too. Open your heart to Him.

          Come back soon for another Daily Bread and weíll find out about more adventures, and accomplishments of the apostles as we continue our study of the book of Acts. See you again!
