Biblical Gentile in the Bible Truth
Gentile Meaning and Gentile Origin Explained

Fantastic to have you back at Daily Bread, and welcome! In our last segment, we read about how Peter had shared the Word of God with the Gentiles. Let's see what happened next.

The Apostles and brethren that were in Judea heard that the Gentiles had also received the Word of God, and when Peter came back up to Jerusalem, the Jewish people contended with him, saying, You went in to Gentiles, and ate with them.

(Understand that the Jewish people at that time were of the belief that God wouldn't ever give the Gentiles the Grace that He gave them.) But Peter explained the whole thing to them, saying, I was in Joppa praying and in a trance, when I saw a vision. A vessel descended, like a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came next to me. When I looked closely at it, I saw four footed beasts and wild animals and creeping things, and birds of the air inside of it.

And I heard a voice saying to me, Arise Peter, kill and eat. But I said, No, Lord, for nothing common or unclean has ever entered my mouth. But the voice answered me again from Heaven, What God has cleansed, do not call common.

This happened three times and then the sheet was taken up to heaven again. Just then, there were three men already come to the house where I was, sent from Caesarea to me. The Holy Spirit told me to go with them, without doubting anything. These six brethren went with me and we went into the man's house. He told us that he had seen an angel in his house, who stood and said to him, Send men to Joppa and call for Peter, who will tell you, how you and all your family will be saved.

As I began to speak, the Holy Ghost fell on them, like it did on us at the beginning, and then I remembered the Word of the Lord, how He said, John indeed baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Ghost. Since God gave them the same gift as He did to us, who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who was I, that I could question God?

When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, God has also granted to the Gentiles, repentance unto life (Grace).

Now those who were scattered about because of the persecution that arose about Stephen who had been stoned to death traveled as far as Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, preaching the word to the Jewish people only. And some of them were men of Cyprus and Cyrene, which, when they came to Antioch, spoke to the Grecians, preaching the Lord Jesus.

The hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned to the Lord. Then news of these things came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem: and they sent Barnabas, to go as far as Antioch. When he got there and had seen the Grace of God, he was glad, and urged them all, that with purpose of heart they would cling to the Lord. Barnabas was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of Faith: and many people were added to the Lord.

Then Barnabas went to Tarsus, to look for Saul, and when he had found him, he brought him to Antioch. And it came to pass, that for a whole year they joined themselves with the church, and taught many people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch. At that time, prophets came from Jerusalem to Antioch, and one of them named Agabus stood up, and predicted by the Spirit that there should be great famine throughout all the world: which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.

Then the disciples, every man as he was able, wanted to send money to the fellow Christians who lived in Judea. They sent it to the elders by the hands of Barnabas and Saul.

There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another force that is protecting us from him; it is the Holy Spirit. It is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it.
