Now it was about three hours later when his wife came in, not knowing what had happened. Remember they were together in what they were doing just as Adam and Eve where together in the Garden of Paradise. Who talked to who, we will never know, but they were in total agreement. So here she is coming into this Porch of the Temple 3 hours later, not know at all that happened earlier. Nobody told her of the sudden death of her husband.  And Peter answered her, “Tell me whether you sold the land for so much?”
She said, “Yes, for so much.” Reality when known many times is a shocker, so when Peter asked; did you sell the land for so much? Yes, I sold it for so much maybe revealing the amount. It is so easy to think as a couple your right in what you’re doing that is wrong, for no one is getting hurt in his body, when we can’t see the soul’s imagination, reason, conscience, memory or affection as our spirits sense of worship, reverence, faith and hope isn’t possible to take to God in prayer. So our prayerlessness is preventing us from see the way, truth and life that is in obeying the Lord.
Then Peter said to her, “How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out.” 10 Then immediately she fell down at his feet and breathed her last. And the young men came in and found her dead, and carrying her out, buried her by her husband. How is it you have agreed with your husband to test the Spirit of the Lord. Remember the Holy Spirits tongues of fire knowing good from evil. Yet here she is accepting the fact she to is telling a lie. Look Sapphira those who buried you husband are at the door to carry you out and immediately she fell dead and breathed her last. Server yes for remember the Church was getting started and God wants man to fear Him and His justice for it is sure.  The Holy Spirit is seen here in Peter as his tongue is used by the fire of the Holy Spirit that reveals what is going on. God cast out Adam and Eve from the Garden, He cast out Satan from Heaven and when we do not cast aside sin He wil cast us out of heaven. The Christian life is a complete trusting in the Lord as we abide in His loving arms, His family, the Church His Army as Ambassadors for Christ as we resist all the forces of the Devil. It is amazing how out of the same mouth both evil and goodwill proceed out of the mouth.  11 So great fear came upon all the church and upon all who heard these things. Lord help us to fear your love so we are always seeking your will to trust and obey your promises, so we do not have to suffer the consequences of our sins. Look at people that are addicted to sins curse. They have no fear of hell God created for Satan and his followers. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. Kids learn to fear getting spank so are careful they do not make parents unhappy so are out to please God by fearing another spanking. God has a heaven He is preparing for those who work at pleasing the Lord and when we do not fear God He has a place prepared for us called Hell prepared for Satan and all his followers. Who do you fear determines where you will spend eternity!
Continuing Power in the Church
12 And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. God is a God of mercy and grace that is proven by His life lived among people of His day that where ruthless and out to kill righteousness. Yet God allowed His Son Jesus to resurrect and appear for 40 day as a sign He was alive and then just before He departed said; I will send you another comforter; just like me top rule and reign in your new Spiritual body the tongue. Thank the Lord He is still alive wanting us to be of one accord. 

And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s Porch. I hope, your seeing the importance of the Presence of the Lord in this Church. We believe in our Doctrine of the Assemblies of God The authoritive word of God; Salvation, Baptism of the Holy Spirit, Healing and the Second coming of the Lord, which allows us to worship, reverence, have hope and faith in God to answer our prayers. It is the unity of the Church Family that gives us the assurance God is present here. This unity cannot be argued with for God wants us to be a body that is functioning in the image of God Himself. We do not kill one another we bless one another. We are here to encourage and lift up those to be able to conquer the lust for sins. That is the reason we do not want to forsake the Church but help to keep the Church doors open so we can have fellowship with God and one another in person. Yes, we worship the Lord in spirit and in truth, but it takes us all coming together in order to have the witness we are blest by God. 13 Yet none of the rest dared join them, but the people esteemed them highly. This was a new beginning and no one before this time knew what it was like to be full of the Holly Spirit, but know God has revealed Himself to Peter and John and they are esteemed and lifted up for being able to see Gods love magnified in what they did with sin in the Church.  They did not magnify themselves but gave the Lord all the credit for what was done in His name. 14 And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women, Notice; people who believed where added to the Church. The Church need people that have one desire and that is to please the Lord in all they do and say, for we are not our own but the Lord and He knows how to protect, provide, protect, pave a way that is pot less so our journey is smooth and beautiful regardless of the weeds all around us. Lord give us people that want their spirit to be empowered to do Your work as they stop doing the works of Satan. Remember Satan does not like the Church but people that are saved love the Church for the fellowship it provides to one another. 
We see here both men and women are enriched by being together. Lord help us to feel the security you want us to receive by one another’s faith in Gods miracle of healing in their lives. Remember it was women God created out of the rib of Man. It was women that help the prophets and priest give account to God. Ruth, Naomie, Esther, Mary the mother of the Lord, Mary Magdalene, Phyllis and Phacelia. It was women first at the grace, it is women today that are serving in the Church to make sure all is done to give hospitality to all attending. It is women that are teaching our kids at home and in the Church. Thank the Lord for the characteristic of women in the Church. Notice Solomon described the qualities of women in Proverbs 31 as they are virtuous, invaluable, worthy of trust, fruitful, ingenious, proficient, Thrifty and dutiful, judious, tireless, healthy, joyful, efficient, watchful, thrifty, charitable, fearless, cleaver at decorating, respectful, popular, dependable, confident, hopeful, wise and discrete, blest and honored by husband and kids, excels, God fearing and praised for working with her hands, so is deserving of all praise.    15 so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. Now we are seeing how the Lord blesses when we are submitted to the Lords will. God want to heal and make us whole so here we see the people had faith and bought the sick out into the street in the beds and couches that as Peters Shadow passed over them they were healed. This is all happening for the Holy Spirit is in operation and wants to show Himself as a person with unlimited power. It is amazing everyone is not healed but many did receive healing. Today we see many people receiving manifestation of the power of the Lord to heal and save from the addictions caused by accepting evils lust for satisfaction.
16 Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed. It is amazing how far people travel to receive special favors from the Lord; for people are interested in the miracle medical marvels that only God can perform as we have the faith of a mustard seed. Remember the Church was being introduced by Jesus and His followers and God does not hold back miracles. Lord help us to see in our individuals lives miracles of Gods divine intervention that increases our faith. Romantic Fever, Cancer, heart attack and five balloons, Dales tan looking spots on the Body that could be Leukemia, or blood disease that could cause a person to bleed to death and he was healed as we stopped in to see Brother Larson our Pastor at the time who prayed for us and as we came to the Gap thanking the Lord for our son and giving him up to the Lord. The next day is when the doctor gave us the news it can be treatable. What a time of rejoicing for us and the Church at this time. I shall never forget as Assistant Pastor in Palmdale, CA praying for kids that had a unclean spirit that disrupted families and they went through all kinds of contortions and even stepped into coals of fire burning in the camp ground. Today he is a Youth Minister in LA area. To God be the glory for with God nothing is impossible. God blesses the Church as an instrument of glory and grace that is unlimited, if we would only trust and obey the Lord. TO BE CONTINUED
