Receive My Power Reading: Acts 10:34-48 ESV Audio Bible
Extract: Acts 10:34-36,38-41,44-46 TPT
“Peter said, ‘Now I know for certain that God doesn’t show favouritism with people but treats everyone on the same basis. It makes no difference what race of people one belongs to. If they show deep reverence for God, and are committed to doing what’s right, they are acceptable before him. God sent his word to the Jewish people first, announcing the wonderful news of hope and peace through Jesus, the Anointed One, the Lord of all.
Jesus of Nazareth was anointed by God with the Holy Spirit and with great power. He did wonderful things for others and divinely healed all who were under the tyranny of the Devil, for God had anointed him. We apostles were eyewitnesses to all the miracles that he performed throughout the land of Israel. Finally, in Jerusalem, he was crucified on a cross, but God raised him from the dead three days later, allowing him to be seen openly. He didn’t appear to everyone, but he appeared to us, his chosen witnesses. He actually ate and drank with us after he rose from the dead!’
While Peter was speaking, the Holy Spirit cascaded over all those listening to his message. The Jewish brothers who had accompanied Peter were astounded that the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out on people who weren’t Jews, for they heard them speaking in supernaturally given languages and passionately praising God. Peter said, ‘How could anyone object to these people being baptized? For they have received the Holy Spirit just as we have.’ So he instructed them to be baptized in the power of the name of Jesus, the Anointed One.”

“The way has been established, the price paid, mankind can now be reconciled with a Holy God. In Christ we are accepted, affirmed, loved and restored completely back to the Father’s embrace. This is the good news of the Kingdom of God.” (Hetland, p48)
