Acts Chapter 2 Star Chart: Clockwise from when "Peter (Orion), standing up with the eleven, lifted up his (red radius) (golden) voice, and said unto them, Ye (Gemini) men of Judaea, and all ye (Argo) that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and (lunar ear) hearken to my (red radius) (solar golden) words" (2:14) till "they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls" (2:41) is 30° men x 100 laps = 3000 men.

The Midrash says God's voice thundered the Torah from Mount Sinai "in seventy LANGUAGES, so that all the nations should understand" (Exodus Rabbah 5:9). God spoke in 'VOICES" (Ex. 20:18; Rhm; YLT). There was also "FIRE" and a "SOUND" (Heb. 12:18-19; Ex. 20:18) and about 3000 MEN were buried because of idol worship (Ex. 32:28) when the "CHURCH in the wilderness" began (Acts 7:38) on PENTECOST.

The Gospel was spoken in many "OTHER TONGUES" accompanied by "FIRE" and a "SOUND" in Acts 2:2-4 on Mount Zion. The New Testament CHURCH began on PENTECOST at the Temple Mount in Jerusalem (Luke 24:49; Acts 2:1; Heb. 12:22). Before going onto the Temple Mount itself, a pilgrim had to be ritually cleansed in a mikvah and excavations have uncovered many mikvaot outside the south wall of the Temple Mount. Therefore, this had to be the spot where the 3000 MEN were baptized (buried in a mikvah) on the day of PENTECOST (Acts 2:41,46). In fact, the "house" they were sitting in (Acts 2:2) may have been the "House of God." Incidentally, according to legend, the world was divided into 70 LANGUAGES at Babel on PENTECOST also (Gen. 11:8). The TONGUES OF FIRE over the apostles' heads (Acts 2) correspond to the fact that "all the people saw the thunders and the FLAMES" (Ex. 20:18). The "devout men" (Acts 2:5) weren't Christians but instead were those who obeyed Old Testament law.

Holy Spirit Filled 3000 on Pentecost 31 AD

 

2:1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it (Milky Way) filled all the house where they were sitting.

3 And there appeared unto them (lunar crescent) cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them (Gemini & Argo).

4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost (Spirit), and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man (lunar ear) heard them (red radius) speak in his own language.

7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, (red radius) saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?

8 And how (lunar ear) hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?

9 Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia,

10 Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes,

11 Cretes and Arabians, we do (lunar ear) hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of God.

12 And they were all amazed, and were in doubt, (red radius) saying one to another, What meaneth this?

13 Others (Orion & Auriga) mocking (red radius) said, These (Gemini) men are full of (red radius) new wine.

14 But Peter (Orion), standing up with the eleven, lifted up his (red radius) voice, and said unto them, Ye (Gemini) men of Judaea, and all ye (Argo) that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and (lunar ear) hearken to my (red radius) (solar golden) words:

15 For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day (9 am).

16 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel;

17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my (Milky Way) Spirit upon all flesh: and your (Gemini) sons and your (Gemini) daughters shall (red radius) prophesy, and your young (Gemini) men shall (lunar eyeball) see visions, and your old (Gemini) men shall dream dreams:

18 And on my (Gemini) servants and on my (Gemini) handmaidens I will (red radius) pour out in those days of my (Milky Way) Spirit; and they shall prophesy:

19 And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and (zodiac) signs in the earth beneath; (red radius) blood, and (solar) fire, and (Milky Way) vapour of smoke:

20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the Lord come:

21 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall (red radius) call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

22 Ye (Gemini) men of Israel, (lunar ear) hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and (zodiac) signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:

23 Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have (Argo's mast) crucified and slain:

24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.

25 For David (red radius) speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:

26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:

27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.

29 Men and brethren, let me freely (red radius) speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.

30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that (Orion) God had (red radius) sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;

31 He (red radius) seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.

32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are (lunar eyeball) (red radius) witnesses.

33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost (Spirit), he hath shed forth this, which ye now (lunar eyeball) see and (lunar ear)hear.

34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he (red radius) saith himself, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,

35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.

36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made the same Jesus, whom ye have (Argo's mast) crucified, both Lord and Christ.

37 Now when they (Gemini) (lunar ear) heard this, they were (red radius) pricked in their heart, and (red radius) said unto Peter and to the rest of the (Gemini) apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?

38 Then Peter (Orion) (red radius) said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost (Spirit).

39 For the promise is unto you, and to your (Gemini) children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

40 And with many other (red radius) words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls (30 degrees).

42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and (zodiac) signs were done by the (Gemini) apostles.

44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;

45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.

46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,

47 Praising God, and having favour with all the (Gemini) people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
