The Jewish Church

January 18

Acts 2   

Act 2:36

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

Peter’s first holy spirit inspired sermon cam to a close. He was speaking to whom? He was addressing the Jews in Jerusalem that came to the feast of Shavuot. The witness was first given and forgiveness offered in Jerusalem as Jesus commanded n Acts 1 :8.

« Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words: » Acts 2 :14

It was the house of Israel and the Jews that crucuified their King. But that was Gods plan to save the Jews and all the world! CHRIST CAME TO FORGIVE NOT TO JUDGE.  And we all are saved and with the house of Israel when we called on the name of the Lord. And we all can say we crucified Him being that we all are of the house of Isreal. All mankind. And He died not for just the sins of Judea but the Jews that are from every race, spiritual Israel and spiritual Jews

Rom 11:26

And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

He came to Zion on that hill in Jerusalem. The day He paid the price for the sin of the whole world He turned ungodliness away from Jacob. Only one condition. They just need to accept and receive forgiveness in His Sacrifice. There is one way and He is the Way.

Rom 11:29

For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

Gods offers and gifts never change. But people do all the time and a majority of the Jews prefered to no ask for Forgiveness and follow the religion of their elders.

All Israel is saved when and only when they accept the offering of Jesus the Lamb of God

Act 2:21

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

That was Gods offer but it was up to man to take it or leave it

About three thousand Jews accepted Jesus that day and the House of God began in Jerusalem as a Jewish Church! And Luke records the growth through Samaria to the uttermost parts of the Nations.

Act 2:37

Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

Act 2:38

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.

Act 2:39

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.

Act 2:40

And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

Act 2:41

Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
