The Apostolic message of Pentecost: Acts chapter 2

The Apostolic message of Pentecost: Acts chapter 2

On the day of Pentecost, Holy Ghost fell upon those who were gathered together in the upper room of a house in Jerusalem, and they began to speak in tongues as the Holy Ghost gave them utterance. After many devout men, from many different nations, heard them speaking in their native languages the wonderful works God, some began to mock them claiming they were simply drunk off of new wine.

But Peter, who had denied being associated with Jesus just 50 days prior to this, stood up with the other Apostles and began to preach the very first “Apostolic” message saying, “these [people] are not drunk, as ye suppose, But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel…..” quoting Joel 2:28-32.

Then he went on to say…..

“Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it. For David speaketh concerning him…”
quoting Psalm 16:8-11.

He continues…..

“Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne; (1Chron 17:11-14; Ps 89:3-4, 29, 36; Ps 132:11) He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

He yet continues……

This Jesus hath God raised up,whereof we all are witnesses. Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, Until I make thy foes thy footstool.” (Psalm 110:1)

He concludes with a powerful statement….

“Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus,  whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.

Brothers and Sisters, this is the message that pricked the hearts of 3000+ and caused them to ask, “What shall we do?”

“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.”

If you have obeyed Acts 2:38, then why not believe Acts 2:22-36?
Did Peter preach what is preached today? Did he make mention of anything that we make mention of today? Did he leave something out? Did he lack revelation and understanding of the truth?

……or do we? Think about it.

2 John 1:3
Grace be with you, mercy, [and] peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.

The man at the right hand

The man at the right hand….. {Genesis 41:37-46}

After going through a series of very trying events, Joseph had finally been exalted to a place of authority, just as he had seen in his dream. God was with him and he pleased Pharaoh, King of Egypt, so much that he put him in charge of everything in his kingdom. He told Joseph, “See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, and put it upon Joseph’s hand, and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, and put a gold chain about his neck; And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried before him, Bow the knee: and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.” Joseph had received great authority over all Pharaoh had.

However, all of that power and authority was to be viewed and understood through the lens of what Pharaoh said in Genesis 41:40. “Thou shalt be over my house, and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: only in the throne will I be greater than thou.” You see, Joseph was in charge, he was the Lord of the land, but he STILL had a head. Although he had the highest position of authority, he was still subject to an authority; he had a King. Joseph, in relation the Pharaoh, typifies Christ in relation to God. As it is written, “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.”
1 Corinthians 11:3

Jesus pleased the Father in everything he did {John 8:29}. Twice during Jesus’ ministry, God spoke from heavens saying, “This is my Son, in whom I am well pleased,” {Matt. 3:17, 17:5} Jesus proved this when he yielded himself to God’s will at Gethsemane and pleased the Father through his obedience, even unto death {Phil 2:8}. But God raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places {Eph. 1:20}; all power (exousia=authority) was given unto him. {Matt 28:18} Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted {Acts 2:33}, he was highly exalted and given a name/authority that is above every name/authority {Phil. 2:9}. Far above all principality, and power (exousia), and might, and dominion, and every name/authority that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come and hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all {Eph. 1:21-22}. Yet, we must understand that though we are Christ’s, Christ is God’s {1 Cor. 3:23}.

Jesus was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God {Mark 16:19}; of whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began. {Acts 3:21} For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, until I make thy foes thy footstool. {Acts 2:34-35, Ps. 110:1} To which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? {Heb. 1:13} For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come…..but we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. {Heb. 2:5-9, Ps. 8:4-6} Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him, endured the cross, despising the shame. {Heb 12:2}
This man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down on the right hand of God; {Heb. 10:12} angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
{1 Peter 3:22}

Thus, it is Christ who fulfils Ps. 110:1. And, then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted (not included), which did put all things under him. {1 Cor. 15:24-27}

Just as Pharaoh was over Joseph, so is God over Christ. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him; that God may be all in all. {1 Cor. 15:28}

I pray this edifies the body of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is the church. I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may continue to give unto [us] the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him; the eyes of [our] understanding being enlightened; that [we] may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints. {Eph. 1:17-18} Now [may] the God of patience and consolation grant [us] to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus: That [we] may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. {Rom. 15:5-6}

Grace and peace be unto you all from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ,
the Son of the Father, in truth and love. {2 John 1:3} Amen

Jesus is the Messiah lord & YHVH’s Messiah

Jesus is the Messiah lord (Luke 2:11) & in Luke 2:26 Jesus is YHVH’s Messiah.

Luke never wants us to confuse the two.

Ps 110:1, which Jesus quoted to settle all issues in Mark 12:35ff., defines the exact relationship of the One God of Israel to Jesus the Messiah, Son of God. The relationship is: GOD for Jesus is a superelevated MAN.

Never, ever, GOD and GOD!

The Shema remains in tact always.

Ps 110:1 is the massively important text which defines YHVH as addressing “my lord” = A’DONI, which is never in all 195 occs. a ref to Deity.

Peter makes our point exactly with the same Ps. 110:1 in Acts 2:34-36.

Paul makes exactly the same point by first affirming the Shema, “there is one God, the Father” (1Cor 8.4-6) & Jesus says “no other God but HE”, Mark 12:29-32. Then Paul puts alongside the One God, the Messiah lord, who is not a 2nd GOD, which would shatter the first & great commandment..

Paul and Jesus give us GOD and exalted Man. Thus, exactly 1Tim 2.5: “One God and one Man Messiah.”

Jesus in his own Aramaic is “our lord” as in “our lord, come” –Maranatha—our lord, can never mean “our YHVH,” which is a linguistic impossibility.

This is not difficult.
