Peter is the God ordained Apostle to the Gentiles
ACTS 15: 6 The apostles and the elders met together to consider this
matter. 7 After there had been much debate, Peter stood up and said
to them, “My brothers,[b] you know that in the early days God made a
choice among you, that I should be the one through whom the Gentiles
would hear the message of the good news and become believers. 8 And
God, who knows the human heart, testified to them by giving them the
Holy Spirit, just as he did to us; 9 and in cleansing their hearts by
faith he has made no distinction between them and us. 10 Now
therefore why are you putting God to the test by placing on the neck
of the disciples a yoke that neither our ancestors nor we have been
able to bear? 11 On the contrary, we believe that we will be saved
through the grace of the Lord Jesus, just as they will.”
So whose vision do you believe?
- Peter's vision of a sheet being let down from heaven 3 times (3 is a divine confirmation) containing unclean animals for him to kill and eat, representative of the Gentiles whom God calls clean and fit to receive salvation by Jesus. or..
- Paul's vision of Jesus as a bright light and voice, blinding him, on the road to Damascus. Remember, Satan masquerades himself as an angel of light. Jesus always appeared in the flesh after his resurrection.
Revelation chapter 21 states there are 12 Apostles of the Lamb. We know that Matthias replaced Judas as the 12th. Matthias met the criteria the 11 Apostles decided upon for apostleship, that of having been with Jesus from the beginning to the end of his earthly ministry. Paul had no such distinction.
