The reader will recall that in Acts 1:15 it was "Peter" who "stood up in the midst of the disciples" and proposed the appointment of a successor to Judas. Here in Acts 2:14, "Peter, standing up with the eleven," brings the great Pentecostal address. " (2:37). And later, when persecuted for Christ, "Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men" (5:29). Indeed, all of early Acts revolves around Peter. He is the chief actor. This is in close harmony with our Lord's words before His departure, for He had appointed Peter as the leader of the twelve, saying: "And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven" (Matt.
As significant as it is that Peter quotes this statement right in its prophetic context, even more significant it is that Paul now quotes it in this new setting. The signs which began at Pentecost finally vanished away again and the horrors predicted did not--have not even yet--come to pass. God is not now saving whosoever calls, in the sense predicted by Joel and proclaimed by Peter. The wonderful fact, however, is that God is now sending out a "whosoever" offer of eternal salvation by His interruption of the program predicted by Joel and the ushering in of the dispensation of grace.

Men acting in the flesh, or out of the will of God, are not filled with the Spirit. And had Matthias been the wrong man for this most important position he would surely not have been filled with the Spirit. But they were all filled with the Spirit. This evidence is final and conclusive. PAUL NOT ONE OF THE TWELVE That Paul could not have taken Judas' place as one of the twelve is evident from the following considerations: First, he was not even saved at that time, so could not have been chosen in time for Pentecost and the offer of the kingdom.
