19 But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. Peter and John did not need to talk about what to do, they said, if it is right to listen to you over God, you’re going to have to be the judge. They were determined to please the Lord not man.
20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. We have a relationship with God and we are going to speak what we know to be the truth that Jesus showed us while He was alive and then when He died and rose again for 40 day and gave us the Holy Spirit just before He left back to heaven. We can’t but speak and teach is a statement we need to believe and practice every day of our lives. God commanded us to Go Tell so that what we will continue to do. Here they are practicing what they were taught by God. Lord help us to continue to being good news, Jesus saves, keeps and give assurance we are children of God.
21 So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done. They continued to threaten them for that is all they could do. So they had to let them go for they were giving a command that could not be keep from people that knew the way, truth and life found in the Lord death burial and resurrection. They certain could not contradict this miracle.
22 For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was shewed. This was certainly a miracle since he was lame for 40 years the more he was in this condition the weaker he became. Here he was lame for forty years so being older many knew of him and this was totally a shock to all. God’s grace is really magnified here.
23 And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them. It is so good when we here of a good report to come together as a Church and talk about it. This is what the Church was called to do tell the good news Jesus saves heals and supplies all our needs. Here the Chief Priest and elders who had threated them just earlier Peter and John are sharing their feeling of God is what is needed for the leader could not prevent the Lords miracles from happening. They we’re not looking for personal satisfaction but God glories victory. We need to know what is expected of us as a Church for we are all Ambassadors for Christ. Remember this is Christ whom you crucified he told the leader gathered. Lord thank you for the message the Church has to share with all for God wants to deliver us from sins that destroy our image of being like Christ. 
24 And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is: Thank the Lord for the miracles that are in the Church that is buffeted by the world for what it does is make us all the more thankful for what God is able to do in our lives when we are all in one accord. I pray that we will be of one accord so our thinking about the lost makes us want to left our voice to be heard. Has there ever been a day like today/ Letter are important, but they take days to get to where they are read. Today in a split second our voices can be heard on snap chat, Instagram, email, messenger, twitter, all on the I Phone or computer even now watches. So, may we be in touch with those that do not know the way, truth and life found in the word of God.
Lord you’re our creator of the world, of the mind, our mouth, eyes, ears, nose and feeling that are alive with the souls five senses; imagination, conscience, memory, reason and affection that I hope comes from our Faith, hope, in reverencing and worshiping God who gave us the power of prayer, that we might be blessed in all we do and say! Lord You are the ruler of this world and of our minds so we are in one accord. Yes, you’re not the creator of our fancies. Man has many idols or gods they worship, but as a Church we worship Elohim, Emmanuel; God with us.
Here the Church was beginning with the enabling of the Holy Spirit 
25 Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things? We will never know the reason sinner rage and imagine the strangest things about God and His anointed and ordained? The Jews are seen as the enemy of the world and God has blessed them more than any other race. Then the Church is shunned and despised as damaging mankind so they can have any fun. Thank the Lord God said He was going to Bless Israel and any one that blesses them will also be blest. Then the Church was ordained to be His bride and that is something to look forward to. It is the reason the Lord said, do not forsake the house of the Lord. It is a place of battling sins forces of evil as we pray for one another right on the spot so we can victory in Jesus. Could it be this is the reason our world is in such cagous and disarray with homelessness and lawlessness abounding. Let’s never forget without a vision people are perishing. Help us to care and pray for our Reservation right where we live, that we will see goodwill and peace abound to keep Satan’s addictions from ruling and causing fear in our area.

26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.
Here the Church was getting started and those in authority were not happy so are doing all they can to discredit the Lord from beginning the Church. Here these King and Ruler ought to have been glad God was beginning a new work of Grace. Look at how today so many are opposed to what God is able to do. Not being able to see how nature is controlled by God and they should have considered also what God was getting ready to do. Thank the Lord He is not going to give His control or authority to any man.27whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done. What a hard fact, God is fulfilling what He promised in the Old Testament and at the time of his appearing to mankind regardless of what Herod or Pontius Pilate thought. Jesus was called the Christ Child and Herod was wanting Him killed. Thank the Lord Jesus remained subjected to His Fathers will. He was a Son of Gods yet acted as His Fathers servant doing God work. As a Church we are empowered when we become a servant of the Lords. Not a dictator, but one who wants to be like Christ. Who is it today that is still against Gods love mercy and grace; Satan as he wants to addict and dictate to us all.
In order for Jesus to rule and reign He must die as a criminal it was not angels or some other means but Jesus a man just like you and me gave His life to all sinner. He loves the world, right? Yes, but does the world love God, His Son and the Holy Spirit! Notice by His hand that of the highest of Priest. It is God hand upon our world that seems to be done meaning what God wrote with His hand. His hands are out reach still; Thank the Lord!
29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, notice how God was cognizance of the hate and malice of their enemies. Our enemies are real, but thank the Lord we do not have to let the enemy have his way.  Notice what David said in Psalms 2:4 when the enemy break us asunder and cast his cords from them, he that sits in heaven laughs at them; and has them in derision; and then the virgin, the daughter of Zion, may despise the impotent menace even of the great king, the King of Assyria.  The Lord knows the mischief and spite of people and their threatening’s and when to tie their hands so they can become thankful for what God is doing in their lives. Lord help us to bear with injustices for You’re are going to see Justice prevail sooner or later. Lord thanks for Your grace that is working all the time to settle the account so we can boldly proclaim the truth regardless of the opposition. Lord help us to see all the troubles that seem to plague us so we do not give up and say what the use. But take heart and press on and that is working at your attitude and behavior that we can be cheerful anyway. It is not Lord behold their threatening and frightens them and stop their mouths and fill their faces with shame; but Lord behold their threatening and animate us to open our mouths and fill our hearts with courage. Not Lord retire from our work for it is dangerous, but God give us grace to go on in our work and not to be afraid of the face of men. Let’s be bold to speak up for liberty to declare the truth of God word. If people are offended give it to the Lord for we are required to tell the truth and what people do with it is up to them. Let’s stir ourselves up in our Faith fighting against the evils of this world and resisting its lust so we can stand firm upon the sure foundation. To Be Continued
