While Peter was still saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the word. And the believers from among the circumcised who had come with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out even on the Gentiles.
I do not remember ever hearing a teaching on the significance of this day. The gift of the Holy Spirit poured out on the Gentiles. The last step in the sequence ofActs 1:8But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
What a glorious Day—Pentecost for the Gentiles. A Day of fulfilled Scripture. The Day of Fulfilled Prophecy Genesis 12:2-3 And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse, andin you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
