 44 Now while Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell on all of those who heard the word.4 [Notice! Peter's words that he spoke was "the word" they heard. Peter spoke the Word of God, the word from within his heart; words supplied by the Spirit of Christ that gave Peter the words to speak. Thus it was Christ speaking through Peter, and because of that, the Holy Spirit fell on his listeners.]

4 Now while Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell on all of those who heard the word. Notice! Peter's words that he spoke was "the word" they heard. So the words in the previous verses that Peter spoke were "the word." Peter spoke the Word of God, the word from within his heart; words supplied by the Spirit of Christ that gave Peter the words to speak. Thus it was Christ speaking through Peter, and because of that, the Holy Spirit fell on his listeners. So Peter was a minister of the Spirit, not a minister of the letter, (who quote scriptures from their carnal mind of death, which is enmity with God).

Jesus Christ is the word of God, and what He speaks himself is the word of God. If the Spirit of Jesus speaks through a minister of the Spirit, who hears from the Spirit what to say just before speaking, that minister also speaks the word of God; such a minister is a minister of the Spirit. Jesus said, "whatever I speak is just as the Father tells me to speak," John 12:49-50; and "He who speaks from himself seeks his own glory, but he who seeks the glory of the One who sent him, that man is true,  and there is no unrighteousness in him." John 7:18. So when a minister speaks any words from their own mind, they are ministers of the letter, seeking their own glory; and that is what is universal in Christianity today, men speaking from their carnal minds and their evil imaginations.

This verse is another sad example of how the Babylon-trained Bible translators have deliberately mistranslated the Bible in order to support their false doctrine that the word is the Bible. The original Greek of this verse the Greek word is logon, a derivation of the word logos and which means: 1) of speech; 1a) a word, uttered by a living voice, embodies a conception or idea; 1b) what someone has said; yet five out of seven Bibles have translated "word" to be "message," and one dropped any mention of it, in an attempt to preserve their false doctrine that the word is the Bible.

Every reference to "the word" or "the word of God" or "the Word of the Lord" in the New Testament is either logos or rhema, both of which mean "words spoken by a living voice." There is a web page that shows this detail for every verse that references "the word" or "the word of God" or "the Word of the Lord" in the New Testament, (click to see); and the word logos is the same Greek for word found in John 1:1, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was god.
