We are seeing again the Pharisees and Sadducees appear again as they did with Jesus. The spectacular events for the last few days are now wearing off and they begin to question what happen, as they do not want to accept reality. Lord help us to see reality is, Your alive and well on planet earth, to set people free of doubt and shame. We are going to see the Kingdom of God and the powers of Darkness appearing against God and His servants.
Acts 4 King James Version (KJV)
And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them, Here Peter and John are still talking of what just had happen. They were now teaching the knowledge of how to abide in the vine. With the pouring out of the spirit of God that is now present in them, as they are controlled by God to do what they are doing, as if Jesus was still with them. There are always people who do not want to accept the tongue as an instrument that needs to be controlled by God. For Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks is seen here by the Disciple and those grieved by the Holy Spirit. People do not like to be told what to do and get very vocal about what Christian are proclaiming; Jesus loves you. How can He when so many people are suffering from getting shot by guns, how can He when we are seeing people killed by war, how can we when we see Governments and our economy driven by greed for power. The Disciples are verifying Christ is alive He did resurrect. We are now secured in Christ as we believe in Him. He is the Alpha and Omega beginning and end.
Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead. This is the Gospel in a nut shell, Jesus is alive and wants us to be alive and not dead with the sins that destroys the bodies 5 senses; ears, eyes, mouth, nose and feeling. Then destroys our conscience, imagination, reason, memory and affection for what is right, so our Spirits are destroyed by our spirit five senses; faith, hope, reverence, worship and prayer. That is the reason we see so many dead people walking I their sins they omit from their thinking. God gave us life, so He owns us and wants us to obey His way, truth and life and when we do, we have peace like a river flowing under control of what we say and do, for God is enabling us to trust and obey Him
And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide. It is amazing today how many wants to lay hand on Godliness and Godly people to destroy them, Christian Persecution is one of the biggest human rights issue today. They are discriminated against at work, school in business and they risk sexual violence torture and much more. Over 240 million Christian living where they experience high levels of persecution. 4,305 Christian killed for their faith. 1,847 Churches and other Christian building attacked. 3,150 believers detained without trial arrested, sentenced or imprison.
Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand. Here at Pentecost we see 3,000 filled with the Holy Spirit and now another 5,000 hear and believe the Gospel. It seems like the more an area suffers, the more people accept the Lords love, mercy and grace.


And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes,
And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem. Notice who is against Christ today, many priests, leaders in the churches, Governmental people and civic minded people like boy and girl scouts of America. Jeffery Epstein’s suicide and the reasons, sin is death physical and spiritual for when the Spiritual man is dead, the body does the most bazaar things that we are seeing in bestiality that’s barbarous. Here the High Priest and Caiaphas were present at the Lord trial and now we see our world is full of people that detest anyone telling them the truth and that’s the reason we are hearing on the news such out laddish comments from people that love evil ways. We are seeing people grieved by the fact the Lord loves you and wants to give your life the opportunity to achieve you potential. Psalm 112:10 They were grieved at that which they should have rejoiced in.         
And when they had set them in the midst, they asked, By what power, or by what name, have ye done this? Can’t you see them now, right in the middle of what was going on. They were in the middle of powerful men. Questions need to be answered, for people what to know the reason why and as they tell us in Child care, Kids do not know why, until they get hurt and do not want to do it again. When we are anointed we do not need instructions from men or women for we are being directed by the Spirit of God by His Holy Spirit,
Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,
If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. Notice Peter speaking as he is filled now with the Holy Spirit. Not the old Peter saved, but know empowered to teach to all what God did for this lame man. Thank the Lord when we trust the Lord God is able to minister in a way that can’t be explained, for God ways are past finding out. Here he justifies what God did among them by performing a good deed to some one that was a beggar, as he could not work for a living. Peter was not ashamed of bring hope to the lame man, but praise. We see in life many good people suffer for doing what is right. This does not stop the Christian but gives him encouragement to continue on believing in Christ. It is not because of Peter and John but because of God spirit upon them leading them to what to what God had in store do next! 
Thank the Lord today God name is being lifted up by many in the White House and many are praying for our country even through the President Donald Trump is saying some of the most discouraging statement on tweeter or even the news. Peter knows the power of conviction and here he is letting them know they killed the Lord which should have made them confess. Christ is not dead, He appeared for forty days and revealed His might power, but yet the whole world was not convinced for He could only talk to those in his presence. Not all who believe are in the presence of God to be used by God, until our spirits are in tune with the Lord will. 
11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. This is all about the stone the Church is being built upon Jesus who is the chief corner stone that holds the Church together or up. The Gospel is given by God just as He gave His Only Son to live among us living above sin and giving us the opportunity to abide in His loving arms as Joh 15 tells us. He died by you all and arose again to show Himself forty day, proving He is alive and then just before He lift He said wait upon the Lord in the upper room and I will give you some one just like Me, that is the Holy Spirit to empower you for service. When we do not accept the shelter in the time of storm, we are missing out on God love, mercy and grace. God wants to be our strong tower, then we can see all the storms coming our way, for they are going to come, we need to trust and obey the Lord not do our thing, but what would Jesus do? To Be Continued!
