Chuck Smith :: Sermon Notes for Acts 10:36

toggle collapse
I. "THE WORD WHICH GOD SENT TO ISRAEL."
A. Peter is preaching to a Gentile audience, and he declares that the word was sent to children of Israel.
1. When Jesus sent the 12 out to witness of Him, He commanded them:
MAT 10:5 These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into [any] city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
MAT 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
MAT 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
MAT 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
2. When the woman from Syrophonicia came to Him for healing for her daughter, and the disciples asked Jesus to take care of her because she was bugging them Jesus responded: "I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel." It should be noted however that He did heal her daughter.
3. Paul in his letter to the Romans said that he was not ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it was the power of God to those that believed, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
4. When Paul and Barnabas were on their first missionary journey and had come to Antioch in Pisidia, they preached in the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and following Sabbath day almost the whole city had gathered so that the Jews became jealous and began to speak against the things Paul had been teaching and began to contradict and blaspheme so that:
Act 13:46 Paul and Barnabas became very bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
5. In Corinth Paul began his ministry to the Jews.
Act 18:5 And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews [that] Jesus [was] Christ.
Act 18:6 And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook [his] raiment, and said unto them, Your blood [be] upon your own heads; I [am] clean: from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles.
6. Yet the scriptures spoke of the gospel being taken to the Gentiles. When Jesus heard that the Pharisees held a council plotting to destroy Him.
MAT 12:15 But when Jesus knew [it], he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;
MAT 12:16 And charged them that they should not make him known:
MAT 12:17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
MAT 12:18 Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.
MAT 12:19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.
MAT 12:20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.
MAT 12:21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.
7. Jesus Himself spoke of how when the Jews rejected the invitation to the feast that the Lord would gather from among the Gentiles guests for the feast, that it might be filled.
MAT 21:33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:
MAT 21:34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
MAT 21:35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
MAT 21:36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
MAT 21:37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
MAT 21:38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
MAT 21:39 And they caught him, and cast [him] out of the vineyard, and slew [him].
MAT 21:40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
MAT 21:41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out [his] vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
MAT 21:42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
MAT 21:43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.
MAT 22:1 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
MAT 22:2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
MAT 22:3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
MAT 22:4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and [my] fatlings [are] killed, and all things [are] ready: come unto the marriage.
MAT 22:5 But they made light of [it], and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
MAT 22:6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated [them] spitefully, and slew [them].
MAT 22:7 But when the king heard [thereof], he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
MAT 22:8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
MAT 22:9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
MAT 22:10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
8. Paul's teachings concerning these things.
ROM 11:11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but [rather] through their fall salvation [is come] unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.
ROM 11:12 Now if the fall of them [be] the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?
ROM 11:13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:
ROM 11:20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
ROM 11:28 As concerning the gospel, [they are] enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, [they are] beloved for the fathers' sakes.
ROM 15:8 Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises [made] unto the fathers:
ROM 16:26 But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:
II. WHAT WAS THE WORD GOD SENT TO ISRAEL? PREACHING PEACE BY JESUS CHRIST.
A. The natural man is at war with God.
1. Isaiah said, "Woe unto him who strives with his Maker."
2. Paul wrote:
ROM 8:7 Because the carnal mind [is] enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
ROM 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
3. James wrote:
JAM 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
B. Through Jesus Christ we now have peace with God.
ROM 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
EPH 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition [between us];
COL 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, [I say], whether [they be] things in earth, or things in heaven.
1. Paul wrote of our being reconciled to God through Jesus.
EPH 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
EPH 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
EPH 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition [between us];
EPH 2:15 Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, [even] the law of commandments [contained] in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, [so] making peace;
EPH 2:16 And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
EPH 2:17 And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
2CO 5:17 Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
2CO 5:18 And all things [are] of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
2CO 5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.
2CO 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech [you] by us: we pray [you] in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
III. "HE IS LORD OF ALL."
A. Concerning Jesus, Paul wrote:
1TI 6:15 Which in his times he shall shew, [who is] the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords;
B. John wrote of the second coming of Jesus and said:
REV 19:13 And he [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
REV 19:16 And he hath on [his] vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
C. Paul speaks of that day when every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
D. This is the big question today, "Is He the Lord of your life?"
1. Someone has said He is Lord of all, or Lord not at all.
2. Jesus once asked, "Why do you call me Lord, and yet you do not the things that I command you."
3. He said a day is coming when many shall call Him Lord, and tell of the things that they did in His name, yet He will deny every knowing them.
