God for the gentiles through Simon Peter.
Acts 00366 10:30-48
Added 11/16/2019, Edited 12/15/19
30) And Cornelius said, Four days ago I was fasting until
this hour; and at the ninth hour I prayed in my house, and, behold, a man stood before me in
bright clothing, 31) And said, Cornelius, thy prayer is
heard, and thine alms are had in remembrance in the sight of God. 32)
Send therefore to Joppa, and call hither Simon, whose surname is Peter; he is
lodged in the house of one Simon a tanner by the sea side: who, when he cometh, shall speak
unto thee. 33) Immediately therefore I sent to thee; and
thou hast well done that thou art come. Now therefore are we all here present before God, to
hear all things that are commanded thee of God. 34) Then
Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
35) But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh
righteousness, is accepted with him. 36) The word which God
sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)
37) That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout
all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;
38) 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.
39) And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in
the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
40) Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;
41) Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who
did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead. 42)
And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of
God to be the Judge of quick and dead. 43) To him give all the
prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.
44) While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on
all them which heard the word. 45) And they of the circumcision
which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was
poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost. 46) For they heard them
speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter, 47)
Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as
well as we? 48) And he commanded them to be baptized in the
name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.
