By the time we find Peter in the 2nd chapter of Acts he has ceased his self-inflicting tortuous barrage of oaths and has already responded to the forward-propelling momentum of his Lord’s invitation. He is now proclaiming, “These men are not drunk. I know what is happening here. This is what Joel was talking about. The Christ whom David spoke of was not abandoned to the grave but God has raised this Jesus to life!” (Acts 2:30-32). They’ve come too late to tell Peter that he cannot be restored to praise and purpose. They’ve come too late to tell Peter there’s no use in preaching. They’ve come to late to tell him that this Jewish area is a “burnt-over evangelistic field.” They’ve come too late because Peter just gave an altar call and 3,000 plus have jammed the altars to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
