Greetings.

The 9th hour is the same as 3 p.m. (Evening to evening---For example, the 12th hour would be the last hour of the day---about 6 p.m.)

Besides the fact that it had been four days to the hour since the voice came to Cornelius, it was also the same hour that Christ died on the cross. The veil was rent---the Old Covenant had passed away, and now, here, Peter is being reminded of the full liberation of the Sons of God under this New Covenant. I think the fact that 3 p.m. was highlighted twice in the story of Acts 10, that therefore, Peter would have looked for why 3 p.m., and would have easily have had his mind led by the Spirit to the 3 p.m. of the cross.

Moreover, Cornelius was a centurion; recall the other centurion at the foot of the cross---at 3 p.m. ("9th hour") when Christ died---He said, "Surely this was the Son of God." This scene was a forerunner of Acts 10 when the Gentiles begin to stream into the Church.

"And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour.
34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
35 And some of them that stood by, when they heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias.
36 And one ran and filled a spunge full of vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink, saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to take him down.
37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost.
38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom.
39 And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God." (Mark 15)


I hope this helps.
His Servant, and may it always be so,

Dean
