Reflection. The first speech of Peter and the conversion of 3,000. By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google translator. 


The text is well known, the first speech occupies all of Peter Acts 2 could be to outline the chapter dividing it into three parts: 


1 The filling of the Holy Spirit of the 120 disciples of "upper room": The crowd visiting Jerusalem at Pentecost heard the disciples speak of "The Wonders of God" in their mother tongue. Acts 2.1 to 13. 

2. Peter explains the miracle of Pentecost, Peter tells the people what happened and why of the situation. 

a. The explanation about languages​​: Peter "opens the mind" to the crowd about the prophetic word given by Joel 2.28-32, showing how it was fulfilled before their eyes (Hch.2.14 21). 

b. The explanation for the resuscitation of Jesus: Peter "opens the mind" to the crowd about the inability to retain the death of Jesus, because that too was prophesied by David in Psalm 16.8 to 11 (Hch.2.23 28) Psalm 132.11 and God promises David put on the throne to one of his descendants. 

c. The explanation that Jesus was the prophesied Messiah (Hch.2.29 36): Peter "opens the mind" to the crowd quoting Psalm 110.1 


"'The Lord said to my Lord: 

     Sit at my right, 
35 until I make your enemies 
     a footstool for your feet. "
36 "Therefore let all Israel be assured of this Jesus, whom you crucified, God has made Lord and Christ." NIV 

d. The explanation given about why Peter, Peter tells the people that the purpose of all that has happened is that believe that Jesus is the Christ, repent of their sins and be saved, Hch.2.37 40 


3 The Birth of the Church of Jerusalem: "41 So those who accepted his message were baptized, and that day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 42 They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 All were amazed at the many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common: 45 Selling their possessions and goods, and shared their belongings with one another according to the need of each. No 46 continued to meet together in the temple for a single day. From house to house breaking bread and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And every day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved. "Hch.2.41 47 NIV. 

Conclusion 4: The Church was born of the Holy Spirit two things a) The explosive miracle of Pentecost b) The ministry of Peter (in the Spirit) that the miracle was understood. Peter had been prepared for three years at the feet of the Master. Besides his mind had been "open to understanding the prophetic word" from the Risen Christ in the upper room on Easter Sunday (Luke 24.36 to 49). 

For a church to grow, it takes preparation and anointing. Without Peter prepared, trained by Master in Prophetic Word, the miracle of Pentecost surely would have had the result I had. This conclusion is confirmed, which we will see in the next post "The second speech of Peter and the conversion of 5.000".
