Scripture: Acts 2:32-36
In Acts 2:32-36 we are told, “This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses. Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear. ‘For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself: “The Lord said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.’” “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.’” Peter was declaring the arrival of the Judicial Messiah. This is Peter declaring to “Know assuredly…Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord/Judge of all the Earth and Christ/Savior of all the Earth.” That is Peter declaring that when the Holy Spirit came, He came with a two-edged sword to put in the hand of every believer and make us like David. The Holy Spirit will make us like David if we let Him. To please God, we have to choose to look like David. Or we can continually “turn-the-other-cheek” and end up like the church at Thyatira. Tolerating evil forfeits covenant!.
