The Holy Spirit Don't Play That



Then Peter said, "Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? Didn't it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn't the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied to men but to God."
When Ananias heard this, he fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard what had happened. Then the young men came forward, wrapped up his body, and carried him out and buried him. Acts 5:3-6

Today’s Reading: Esther 1-2; Acts 5: 1-21


Whoa whoa whoa!!! Hahahaaaha


Ok… Ananias ain’t laughing but good gracious that’s severe. So if you remember in my post about how Marx would have been proud of the early church I talked about how the early church was basically like a socialist community. Everything was shared by all, and as a result, everyone’s needs were met.


Well… Ananias had another idea.


Dude and his wife sold some of their land and only gave a fraction of the money to the whole and kept the rest. And how did Peter find out? The Holy Spirit told him.


What a snitch that Holy Spirit is.


But the cold part is that when he was confronted about it and told about his error old buddy dropped dead right there!!!


So you might be wondering, what is the message here? Don’t lie? Follow through on your promise? Don’t cheat the folks who are down with the Holy Spirit?


Shoot… your guess is as good as mine.


But one thing is real clear… The Holy Spirit don’t play that. You better come correct son!

  2. One thing is even more clearer: The holy Spirit has power and He is GOD, His divinity is not to be questioned.
