Cornelius’s Vision 10 1There was a man in Caesarea named Cornelius, a centurion of what was called the Italian Regiment. 2He was a devout man and feared God along with his whole household. He did many charitable deeds for the Jewish people and always prayed to God. 3About three in the afternoon[P] he distinctly saw in a vision an angel of God who came in and said to him, “Cornelius!” 4Looking intently at him, he became afraid and said, “What is it, lord?” The angel told him, “Your prayers and your acts of charity have come up as a memorial offering before God. 5Now send men to Joppa and call for Simon, who is also named Peter. 6He is lodging with Simon, a tanner, whose house is by the sea.” 7When the angel who spoke to him had gone, he called two of his household slaves and a devout soldier, who was one of those who attended him. 8After explaining everything to them, he sent them to Joppa.   Peter’s Vision   9The next day, as they were traveling and nearing the city, Peter went up to pray on the housetop about noon.[Q] 10Then he became hungry and wanted to eat, but while they were preparing something, he went into a visionary state. 11He saw heaven opened and an object that resembled a large sheet coming down, being lowered by its four corners to the earth. 12In it were all the four-footed animals and reptiles of the earth, and the birds of the sky. 13Then a voice said to him, “Get up, Peter; kill and eat!” 14“No, Lord!” Peter said. “For I have never eaten anything common[R] and ritually unclean!” 15Again, a second time, a voice said to him, “What God has made clean, you must not call common.” 16This happened three times, and then the object was taken up into heaven.   Peter Visits Cornelius   17While Peter was deeply perplexed about what the vision he had seen might mean, the men who had been sent by Cornelius, having asked directions to Simon’s house, stood at the gate. 18They called out, asking if Simon, who was also named Peter, was lodging there. 19While Peter was thinking about the vision, the Spirit told him, “Three men are here looking for you. 20Get up, go downstairs, and accompany them with no doubts at all, because I have sent them.” 21Then Peter went down to the men and said, “Here I am, the one you’re looking for. What is the reason you’re here?” 22They said, “Cornelius, a centurion, an upright and God-fearing man, who has a good reputation with the whole Jewish nation, was divinely directed by a holy angel to call you to his house and to hear a message from you.” 23Peter then invited them in and gave them lodging. The next day he got up and set out with them, and some of the brothers from Joppa went with him. 24The following day he entered Caesarea. Now Cornelius was expecting them and had called together his relatives and close friends. 25When Peter entered, Cornelius met him, fell at his feet, and worshiped him. 26But Peter helped him up and said, “Stand up! I myself am also a man.” 27While talking with him, he went on in and found that many had come together there. 28Peter said to them, “You know it’s forbidden for a Jewish man to associate with or visit a foreigner. But God has shown me that I must not call any person common or unclean. 29That’s why I came without any objection when I was sent for. So I ask: Why did you send for me?” 30Cornelius replied, “Four days ago at this hour, at three in the afternoon,[S] I was[T] praying in my house. Just then a man in a dazzling robe stood before me 31and said, ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard, and your acts of charity have been remembered in God’s sight. 32Therefore send someone to Joppa and invite Simon here, who is also named Peter. He is lodging in Simon the tanner’s house by the sea.’[U] 33Therefore I immediately sent for you, and you did the right thing in coming. So we are all present before God, to hear everything you have been commanded by the Lord.”   Good News for Gentiles   34Then Peter began to speak: “Now I really understand that God doesn’t show favoritism, 35but in every nation the person who fears Him and does righteousness is acceptable to Him. 36He sent the message to the Israelites, proclaiming the good news of peace through Jesus Christ—He is Lord of all. 37You know the events[V] that took place throughout Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism that John preached: 38how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, and how He went about doing good and healing all who were under the tyranny of the Devil, because God was with Him. 39We ourselves are witnesses of everything He did in both the Judean country and in Jerusalem, yet they killed Him by hanging Him on a tree. 40God raised up this man on the third day and permitted Him to be seen, 41not by all the people, but by us, witnesses appointed beforehand by God, who ate and drank with Him after He rose from the dead. 42He commanded us to preach to the people and to solemnly testify that He is the One appointed by God to be the Judge of the living and the dead. 43All the prophets testify about Him that through His name everyone who believes in Him will receive forgiveness of sins.”   Gentile Conversion and Baptism   44While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came down on all those who heard the message. 45The circumcised believers[W] who had come with Peter were astounded because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. 46For they heard them speaking in other languages and declaring the greatness of[X] God. Then Peter responded, 47“Can anyone withhold water and prevent these people from being baptized, who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” 48And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to stay for a few days.

God becoming man.  Without this truth their is no God.  Willing to state that Jehovah witnesses, Mormons, etc are not saved as the deny the dirty of God become man.  There is no faith without this.  Philippians 2:9 1 John 5:20 The names of God in both the old and new testaments are the same names used for Jesus.  John wanted to make it very clear who Jesus is because that was his whole purpose for writing the book.  Jesus feed the masses. Many came back just for the food. When they learned that there would be prosecution they ran. They were not real believers, they were goats.  The prosperity gospel convinces a bunch of goats that they are sheep and keeps them in the pen with a bunch of promises.  Mark 10: 17-22 Commit. This wealthy man knew who Jesus was but didn't want to commit.  Through all of the negative responses their is a common theme - unbelief.  Acts 10:43

Who can receive the Spirit? It is a sign of the arrival of the Kingdom A sign the Gentiles will be part of the kingdom Fulfillment of Yeshua's words from Judea, Samaria and to the ends of the world. It is a sign of repentance from who we used to be , Peter says God cleansed the hearts of the gentiles when the come into faith. No conversion to Judiasm. Gentiles go through a spiritual conversion - circ of. Heart, baptism, sacrifice=lives The expansion of the revelation of God. What does it mean to us.... Gentiles. The knowledge of God is being spread all over, if wasn't so we would not have come to be part of the Kingdom.

God went to extraordinary lengths to underline his wish that Gentiles would also share in the gospel: a vision for Cornelius, direct communication in an unmistakable way with Peter, confirmation of each other's visions, positive response to Peter's message, outpouring of the Holy Spirit, witnesses from among the circumcised believers so that finally Peter was convinced he should baptise the group. Compared to Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch, it seems much more affirmative but Peter had to be convinced enough to drive the message through in Jerusalem (he is challenged about his actions in ch11) and to back Paul.

We can be resistant to change.  Personal hang-up. A great start does not guarantee a successful finish. Vision of Peter at home by the sea.  Cornelius. Peters Vision is of the sheet of many meat types. Note Peter denied Jesus three times.    Stop thinking you can do it all your self.  Liston to me. Peter goes to Gentiles house.   God said all his creation is welcome to his house.   Holy Spirit falls on gentiles household like the first Peter sermon.  This experience is years after the first sermon by Peter.   They did not realize that gentiles could be a part of the Kingdom of God.  Our past can limit Our Vision of what God wants to do in the future.    When we open our lives to God's vision or mission.   1.  We see ours the way God sees others.  As people who God loves.     Continue to have a change of hearts. 2.  Makes greater miracles happen.   What did happen when Peter accepted the change.   Change of position is just part of the move.  When you accept God's vision Great things will happen.  Faith that is acted on grows more faith. 3.  Gets out of our comfort zone.  So God can show us what is possible.   Peter never thought of preaching to gentiles until he follows the vision and  acts on the vision.   Gets us out of our comfort zone in order to grow. How: 1.  He speaks to you.   Heart. Soul. 2.  Getting us engaged Ministry of Others What you do today will shape your tomorrow.   When we say yes to God,  we will see new and great things.
