He would continue to work with His people. He would provoke them to jealousy by the conversion of the Gentiles (Rom. 11:11). He would continue to prove, through Paul as well as the other apostles, that Jesus was the Christ (Acts 9:22, 18:28). He would stretch out His hands all day long to a disobedient and gainsaying people (Rom. 10:21). The new program would only gradually displace the old. This is one reason why God now introduces Peter again, in the healing of Aeneas, the raising of Dorcas and the conversion of Cornelius.
Peter was not told that there would be any change in the program. He was not instructed to continue going to Gentiles. He was simply instructed to go to this one household and, so far as Scripture is concerned, we have no record of his ever ministering to Gentiles again. In fact we find him shaking hands with Paul, solemnly agreeing to confine his own ministry to the circumcision, while Paul goes to the Gentiles. It is evident from the record, that Peter did not understand what God was doing. He was simply commanded to go "doubting nothing" (Acts 10:20) and when he ministered to Cornelius and his household, God took the matter out of his hands, so that "they of the circumcision were astonished" as the Gentiles received the Holy Spirit (Acts 10:44,45).
GOD'S RESPONSE TO CORNELIUS' NEED We do not deny that God had been working in Cornelius' heart, nor do we doubt that his many prayers indicate that he truly desired to know God. It is touching to hear him explain to Peter how he had spent considerable time in fasting (10:30) and to learn that in response to his earnest desire God had instructed him to send for Peter to tell him words whereby he and his house should be saved (11:13,14). This instruction came through a vision in which he saw "evidently [plainly] about the ninth hour of the day, an angel of God" (10:3) who assured him that his prayers and alms had not been overlooked18 and that he should send for Peter to tell him what to do (10:4-6).
