051101 the first Gentile Church .. Recorded May 06 1973 Image

11:01 .. now the apostles and the brethren who were throughout Judea heard that the Gentiles also had received the word of God
11:02 .. and when Peter came up to Jerusalem .. those who were circumcised took issue with him
11:03 .. saying . . . you went to uncircumcised men and ate with them
11:04 .. but Peter began speaking and proceeded to explain to them in orderly sequence .. saying . . .
11:05 .. I was in the city of Joppa praying .. and in a trance I saw a vision .. an object coming down like a great sheet lowered by four corners from the sky ..
......... and it came right down to me
11:06 .. and when I had fixed my gaze on it and was observing it I saw the four footed animals of the earth and the wild beasts and the
......... crawling creatures and the birds of the air
11:07 .. I also heard a voice saying to me . . . get up .. Peter .. kill and eat
11:08 .. but I said . . . by no means .. Lord .. for nothing unholy or unclean has ever entered my mouth
11:09 .. but a voice from heaven answered a second time . . . what God has cleansed .. no longer consider unholy
11:10 .. this happened three times .. and everything was drawn back up into the sky
11:11 .. and behold .. at that moment three men appeared at the house in which we were staying .. having been sent to me from Caesarea
11:12 .. the Spirit told me to go with them without misgivings .. these six brethren also went with me and we entered the man’s house
11:13 .. and he reported to us how he had seen the angel standing in his house .. and saying . . . send to Joppa and have Simon ..
......... who is also called Peter .. brought here
11:14 .. and he will speak words to you by which you will be saved .. you and all your household
11:15 .. and as I began to speak .. the Holy Spirit fell upon them just as he did upon us at the beginning
11:16 .. and I remembered the word of the Lord .. how he used to say . . . John baptized with water .. but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit
11:17 .. therefore if God gave to them the same gift as he gave to us also after believing in the Lord Jesus Christ ..
......... who was I that I could stand in God’s way
11:18 .. when they heard this .. they quieted down and glorified God .. saying . . . well then ..
......... God has granted to the Gentiles also the repentance that leads to life

.................. The Church at Antioch

11:19 .. so then those who were scattered because of the persecution that occurred in connection with Stephen made their way to
......... Phoenicia and Cyprus and Antioch ..
......... speaking the word to no one except to Jews alone
11:20 .. but there were some of them .. men of Cyprus and Cyrene .. who came to Antioch and began speaking to the Greeks also ..
......... preaching the Lord Jesus
11:21 .. and the hand of the Lord was with them .. and a large number who believed turned to the Lord
11:22 .. The news about them reached the ears of the church at Jerusalem .. and they sent Barnabas off to Antioch
11:23 .. Then when he arrived and witnessed the grace of God .. he rejoiced and began to encourage them all with resolute heart to remain true to the Lord
11:24 .. for he was a good man .. and full of the Holy Spirit and of faith .. and considerable numbers were brought to the Lord
11:25 .. and he left for Tarsus to look for Saul
11:26 .. and when he had found him .. he brought him to Antioch .. and for an entire year they met with the church and taught considerable numbers ..
......... and the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch
11:27 .. now at this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch
11:28 .. one of them named Agabus stood up and began to indicate by the Spirit that there would certainly be a great famine all over the world ..
......... and this took place in the reign of Claudius
11:29 .. and in the proportion that any of the disciples had means .. each of them determined to send a contribution for the relief
......... of the brethren living in Judea
11:30 .. and this they did .. sending it in charge of Barnabas and Saul to the elders

As Christians travel the Gospel spreads .. and where God’s Word takes root .. the hand of the Lord goes with it to give the tokens of his good will and the evidences of his work among them by the Holy Spirit . . . v 26 the name “Christians” cannot be .. as some claim .. a nickname .. the Holy Spirit would not draw attention to the epithets of a jeering crowd and let it pass down the centuries as their accredited name .. the name was certainly divinely chosen .. for it puts emphasis on “Christ” (anointed One) rather than the human name of our Lord .. in which case we would have been called “Jesuits”
