FRIDAY, APRIL 29
Scripture: Acts 4:5-8, 19; 5:1-5
How difficult must it have been for Peter to announce the death of Ananias and Sapphira! How difficult must it have been to have buried them before the families were even notified! These are not things that endear you to people. How can we do such things in the Spirit? We need to realize we are representing a God who kills without apology. Our God will put us in an ignoble grave for rebellion without a service. When God kills, He kills twice: the first time, He kills the body, the second time the soul. No wonder the fear of God was everywhere. If the fear of God comes again, will it come on the heels of an Ananias and Sapphira event? Will it start in the church before it goes to governmental leaders?
