Act 5:17 to 26

Imprisoned Apostles Freed It seem that every successful work meets with opposition for people do not like goodwill and peace. We are now seeing the malice of hell struggling with the messenger of God.
17 Then the high priest rose up, and all those who were with him (which is the sect of the Sadducees), and they were filled with [a]indignation, 18 and laid their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison. Here it is the Priest that are enraged and put they are put in prison for they do not want to be threaten by any outside power. We are seeing the same thing today around the world where Governments do not appreciate the Church in many areas. It is still the Sadducees who do not want to accept Jesus rose from the grave to empower His followers and this made the leader disdain Christian works. They became indignant, that is angry, that caused them to be out of control. They did not like the miracle of seeing someone heal the sick, so they are cured. Envy has a way of fooling anyone, for it does not see the truth of how much was given that we might enjoy life.  So, they laid hands on them and put them in prison, so they were helpless in doing what was good and proper. Notice this was at the beginning of Grace that was given by God for the Church and now the witness was put in prison, isolation. What a disgraceful position they find themselves in. Satan knows how to embarase and get us to feel like we are no bodies, for that is his job and he certainly does not lack in taking away what is right to take Control of our lives.

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. 

Acts 5 Lying to the Holy Spirit

This is the hardest message I have ever studied for God Has a way of getting our attention!

Acts 5 New King James Version (NKJV)
Lying to the Holy Spirit
We are going to see sins punishment for lying against the Holy Spirit while the Church is beginning to flourish with the healing of the man Born lame and the Power of the Holy Spirit to give new tongues to His ordained people the Church. Even when they are cast into prison and great opposition to believers they still had a voice to tell their side of the story. Everyone hear as a voice to tell what the Lord has done and is still doing in our lives. So I hope we are empowered by God to have a reason to speak life into others that are in the prison of sin limiting them in who they were created to be. Lord help us to know we are going to be questioned but that is ok for we need a reason to act and think like we do, so we have a good behavior and attitude about what is going on around our world today.  The Church was given by God to show mercy, and forgiveness, that love could be possible and seen in how it would provide for the needs of the body called the Church. Can love be silent and not seen? You know when. someone loves you for they care about your concerns without them asking. The Church was created to care for one another and they care from their own families first. We are also called the Family of Gods. It is so important we feel for one another so we show love by actions and deeds. So, it was a joy to help those who had a need by selling possessions and bring it to the Church.
But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession. Notice how this chapter begins but; not thinking of what just happen, but what is happening now. It is not what happen yesterday? What is going on now will affect us in the future. It has always been and will continue to be good mixed with wrong. Weeds growing with the good seed. The farmer better know how to attack and destroy the weeds in his fields, or otherwise his time is wasted on, no value. So here they haver sold some possession. Notice Ananias And he kept back part of the proceeds, his wife also being aware of it, and brought a certain part and laid it at the apostles’ feet. It is always good to see husband and wife together but to be involved in evil is being as through we were never saved, as they were not rooted or grounded in abiding in the vine. They are more interested in self than others for he kept back some for themselves. It is interesting how many times we think we are smarter than anyone else as we gave some but not all. It is very difficult to day to be totally committed to God and what He has in store for us for we will do what we think is necessary. Once a month to Church or may be once a month to Bible Study. I can get as much staying at home and watching preachers or teacher that are really good. Compromise is always working in the devil’s camp. When God says He will bless us for assembling in the house of the Lord, or He will pour out blessing when we give of tithes and offerings that is what He means and when we obey you watch and wait for it is going to happen. Here Peter is going to take him to task.
