Apostles on Trial Again
26 Then the captain went with the officers and brought them without violence, for they feared the people, lest they should be stoned. Their anger is under subjection for they realize Peter and John have a great following for this is unheard of breaking out of jail with no sign of a struggle. The Captian and his officers know that they are the ones not that could be beaten so proceed with caution. To Be Continued 27 And when they had brought them, they set them before the council. And the high priest asked them, 28 saying, “Did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name? And look, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this Man’s blood on us!” Notice the behavior and attitude and how it has changed, as if they got the message, but no they are being very careful, by asking them a simple question; did we not strictly command you not to teach in this name. This is giving one the ability to account for what they are doing, or saying, for it was the Lord who gave them permission to say and teach what they were teaching. Isn’t it strange how man likes to argue with God? Here you are teaching some strange doctrine that is disturbing the peaceWanting to blame us for what is going on and it is you and your silly thinking. Look at what is going on today, people as many times angry with the Church that is preaching the truth for people do not like to be told what to do or say. We have many Radio Stations not broadcasting sermons for they are controversial so are playing music. Lord help us to what someone to tell us when we are doing what is wrong so we do not suffer loss of the image of goodwill and peace. So, notice how Peter and others responds, 29 But Peter and the other apostles answered and said: “We ought to obey God rather than men. Notice they are in one accord as the Spirit of God is leading them. They are experiencing the Lord giving them the words they need to speak with courage and conviction. Lord might Your way, truth and light be spoken so all can hear, Jesus heals and saves those who make mistakes as they acknowledge the truth. So here they are justified by obeying the Lord. They did not kill Ananias, with Sapphira his wife the Holy Spirit of God was in charge. We are not in charge God is and we need to let Him  30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus whom you murdered by hanging on a tree. Here Peter is very bold saying it was God who bought Jesus His Son our God the grave which you all murdered. People that do not want to hear their faults is no good reason they should not be told of them? We as ministers have a duty to tell the truth of what people are doing that is wrong and hurting the cause of Christ. We are proclaimers of right actions and attitudes so our behavior is worthy of the calling we are in proclaiming goodwill and peace. It is God that inspires and encourages us to be empowered to stand up for righteousness. It is so important to see what God did the Moses, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and his 12 Sons.  God does not need any help in empowering people for service. Look at Moses, he could not speak so God gave him Aaron. Joseph was sold to Pharaoh of Egypt, but soon God gave him the job of Agriculture Secretary of the Land. God takes people will to serve Him to magnify His name.   31 Him God has exalted to His right hand to be Prince and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. It is God that elevates man with His right hand that is always extended to those who are connected to the vine; Jesus. You loaded him with digrace but God crowned Him with honor. What are we doing to people that honor the Lord today is seen around the world as disrespect, to where we are seeing persecution of Christians. Remember Christ lives by the power of God and so do we as we teach the oracles of God way, truth and life. He is our prince and Savior, our law and our Government as we abide in the vine; the presence of God. We are ruled by God He is the Judge of our actions and behaviors attitudes. He does not save us in our sins, but saves us from our sins. He wants to forgive Israel is the reason Peter and John are preaching in the name of Jesus. We need to appreciate what the Lord has done for us so we are always excited about what God has done and is still doing to get people’s attention He is Lord of all. Notice Repentance and remission go together and you can have the one without the other. Repentance removes the guilt and punishment of sin to where we want to please God and turn from sin to righteousness. It is Jesus that gives one the desire to repent and see remission. (Forgiveness) cancellation of debt, tax, penalty or a lessening of heat of conviction of condemnation. It is the Spirit of God that convicts us of wrong doing according to His word. Lord help us to day to have a conscience that is pure and righteous so we want to ask God to clean us up so purity is possible in deed and word. So, our conduct is alive as an ambassador for the Kingdom of God. So, we are born again having a new heart to do God work not our own. Yes God gave us all hands and might we know how to work out our salvation with fear and trembling. This needs to happen so we see the grace of God begin to purify our lives.

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.

Acts 5:7to 16

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.
