Acts 5:35-42

35 And he said to them: “Men of Israel, [h]take heed to yourselves what you intend to do regarding these men. It is amazing how many times people have to be held accountable for what they do and say even today. You need to govern yourselves, be in charge and not let your anger get in the way. Sounds like good advice for all even today. Anger is our biggest weapon against sin and yet can destroy relationship and break up families and Churches. So to be angry and sin not is possible as we let God deal with our behavior and attitude in all areas of life.  Look at how many people are angry and become full of bitterness around the world and notice how they life with degradation and shame to where they can be careful in any way, and are filthy in character and appearance of property and things they own. They fall into the pit which they dig. Let’s be aware of what bothers us so we do not get imbittered and do what we don’t like. 36 For some time ago Theudas rose up, claiming to be somebody. A number of men, about four hundred, [i]joined him. He was slain, and all who obeyed him were scattered and came to nothing. Theudas a man that boasted himself as a great one; a teacher, or prince with a divine commission to bring revolution to the Church or the world to where four hundred joined to Him but he was slain and those who followed where scattered and became nothing? You’re going to be just like him for your going to smite the shepherd and the sheep are going to be scattered. 37 After this man, Judas of Galilee rose up in the days of the census, and drew away many people after him. He also perished, and all who obeyed him were dispersed. Notice another Judas of Galilee one involved with taxes and drew away people who gave credit to his work, but everyone was not fooled by his behavior and they and the attitude perished. Many today are following people foolishly and throw away their lives by being jealous of others liberty to do what they want. We are never able to do what we wants but what does God want for us, not my will but God will is what bring security of abiding in the vine; Jesus. 38 And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing; Refrain do not punish or persecute but stay away from getting upset and let the future take care of them. Let them go, to do their thing without putting a hand on them for if this plan or work they are involved with will dissolve on it own. It is amazing how many times God intervenes on our behalf by using men or women.  39 but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it—lest you even be found to fight against God.” But if it is of God is a statement that needs to be seen in our Churches to give us the ability to trust Him and obey. For God is the one who sets the standards for living in the spirit. We are simply His and He can take a nobody and make him or her a somebody, as we grow in the vine. This is giving the Church hope in beginning its message for the way, truth and life that is going to last forever, God created the law and as our school master for Grace. God’s love is never going to pass away and become naught. He is going to take care of the enemy in His time.

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.
