Pentecost in Acts: Acts 10:23-48 The Gift Poured Out Again!

Peter went to the house of Cornelius as Jesus had told him to do. When he arrived there was a large gathering of gentiles there. He testified of Jesus and explained:

“…that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.”” Acts 10:43 ESV

As Peter was speaking the Holy Spirit was poured out on those who heard him just as He came at Pentecost.

“For they were hearing them speaking in tongues and extolling God. Then Peter declared, “Can anyone withhold water for baptizing these people, who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?”” Acts 10:46-47 ESV

The same Holy Spirit that filled the disciples gathered at Pentecost came and filled the new Gentile believers! They began to speak in tongues and praise God! Then Peter baptized them with water.

God never changes. He is not a “one and done God” never to come and fill again! The promise of the Holy Spirit was for the Gentiles gathered and for all who would come after them. What He did for the believers at Pentecost, He did for the Gentile Believers at Cornelius’s house. He will also do this in our day for a heart that hungers and thirsts for Him. He will fill!

Come Holy Spirit and fill us!
