Welcome to Ning

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold is as pictures of silver.(Prov.25:11) It is so important to speak the right words to people at the right time to produce the right results. When you think of apples of gold in pictures of silver, then you are thinking of wealth and excellence. When we speak wisdom into the lives of others we are making them wealthy. Therefore we must seek God for He is the source of all wisdom and He will give us just the right words needed at the right time.

  • #Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, who had a reputation among all the people and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space; Acts 5:34

    And for a sacrifice of peace offerings, two oxen, five rams, five he-goats, five lambs of the first year: this was the offering of Gamaliel the son of Pedhzur. Num.7:59 Gamaliel was the captain of the tribe of Manasseh and was a man of peace. He embodied the Messiah, the Prince of Peace who would die on the cross to make peace with God. The Pharisees believed in the resurrection, but the Sadducees did not so this explains why Gamaliel being a doctor of the law wanted to help the apostles since they were put in jail for believing in the hope of the resurrection of Jesus Christ the Messiah. I thank God for using Gamaliel to help the apostles, for the council had already decided to slay them and God raised up this great man of God to help them at such a time as this. This is a lesson for all of us to trust God in times of trouble for He will rescue us and we must glorify Him. Gamaliel would also be used by God to train the great apostle Paul.

     

  • #When they had heard that, they were cut to the heart and took counsel to slay them. Acts 5:33

    Thank God for the Holy Spirit who gives us wisdom on how to answer the gainsayers, as the Sanhedrin have been cut to the heart by the testimony of Peter and are taking counsel to slay the apostles. We must be consistent in our faith so that even when our lives are in danger we trust God to deliver us from our adversaries. Jesus told us not to fear the man who can only destroy the body, but to fear God who can destroy soul and body in the Lake of fire. So many are afraid to get the vaccine because of their political and religious beliefs. It is God who gives man the wisdom to use these vaccines to eradicate the disease. What happened to Polio? Thank God that Americans stood up to receive the vaccines and Polio has been eradicated from the earth. We can do the same to the coronavirus pandemic if more people will stand up and receive the vaccine. I have received both doses of the vaccine and will be seeing my doctor to see if I should receive the booster shot. It is time for us to stop playing politics and start doing what is right for the American people. Fear God and keep His commandment for this is the whole duty of man.

  • #And we are His witnesses of these things and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey Him. Acts 5:32

    Peter is filled with the Holy Spirit and led to tell the Sanhedrin that we are witnesses of these things and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey Him. The Elizabethian English of the day when the King James was written calls the Holy Spirit Ghost, He is ever with those who have been baptised with the Spirit and helps us to obey the Words of the Lord. We have the greatest witness of the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ living in us so let us be bold to give witness to this fact. For one day we will have to give an accounting before God of our witness at the Judgment Seat of Christ and we ought to obey God rather than man for this reason. Soon the Lord Himself shall descend from the clouds with a loud shout of the voice of an Arcangel, at the trumpet of God and the dead shall be raised first, then those who are alive shall be changed in a mommet in the twinkling of an eye. So shall we ever be with the Lord, Oh what a day that will be when my Jesus I will see that will be glory for me.

  • #Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Him hath God exalted with His right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. Acts 5:29-31

    I thank God for the boldness of Peter to declare we ought to obey God rather than men. For this same God has raised up Jesus, whom we all slew and hanged on a tree, for all of us have sinned. Thank God He laid the iniquity of us all on Jesus and has exalted with His right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved, and He is able to save to the uttermost those that call upon Him. So I do not know where you are in your life, but call out to Jesus to turn from your sins to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Then you will be saved from your enemies.

  • #And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them, Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us. Acts 5:27-28

    The Sanhedrin brought the apostles there in their midst and said did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? meaning the name of Jesus and we too must be ready to give an accounting before the authorities when they seek to silence us from preaching the Word of God. This pandemic has caused governments to close churches while allowing bars to remain open. I just voted in the local elections with propositions on the ballot to allow governments to restrict Americans from using their First Amendment rights and this is violating the Separation of Church and State. I thank God that in a Democracy we are allowed to voice our opinions at the polls when our rights as American citizens are being challenged. So I encourage all of you to vote and do not take for granted the rights that you have or they may be taken away.

  • #Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple. Acts 5:25

    The Religious leaders found out that the apostles who were put in prison are standing in the temple. What a mighty God we serve who is able to deliver us from the uttermost parts of the earth, as the angel of the Lord was sent by God to deliver them from prison and transport them to the temple. So we too can be faithful to God to teach and preach His word of life where ever He will send us. It is therefore appointed unto stewards to be faithful in all that God has placed in our hands. We must use our time, talent, and treasures to the glory of God as well as the edification of the body of Christ.

  • #And when they heard that they entered into the temple early in the morning and taught. But the high priest came, and they that were with him and called the council together, and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought. Acts 5:21

    After the angel of the Lord told the apostles what to do, they made hast early in the morning and taught the people. But the high priest and the Sanhedrin came, not knowing the angel of the Lord had delivered them called the senate, as well as the council together, then sent to the prison to have them brought. We see the power of God and His wisdom how the Lord protected the apostles by the angel of the Lord. Now we too can be bold to make hast do the will of the Lord by teaching the Word of God as the apostles did. For they had a duty to obey the voice of the Lord to teach all nations and baptize them in the Name of the Lord for the repentance of sins. Let us do likewise until the Lord comes again.

  • #And laid their hands on the apostles and put them in the common prison. But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth and said, Go stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life. Acts 5:18-20

    The angel opened the prison door and brougth them forth saying go stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of life. God has given us all the help we need so we must preach the word of God declaring the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. This is the life that the angel is talking about.

  • #Then the high priest rose up and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation, Acts 5:17

    Are you going to fight the Fed? with interest rates still low, and inflation nearing double digits the Federal Reserve Chairman insists inflation is transitory. Many people are angry just like the high priest and Sadducees were angry that all the people were being healed by the passing shadow of Peter. We need that same type of anointing that Peter had to live in these last days. Jesus said all these things are the beginnings of sorrows, but the end is not yet. When the black horse of the apocalypse comes inflation will be so bad that a loaf of bread will be a day's wages. So watch and pray that ye shall be counted worthy to escape the Day of the Lord when it comes. We are not of the night that the Day of the Lord should catch us unawares. 

  • #And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch. And of the rest durst, no man join himself to them but the people magnified them. And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.) Acts 5:12-14

    There were many miracles being done by the hands of the apostles and many signs and wonders were wrought among the people according to the manuscripts. Such that they brought forth the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them. This was the anointing of the Holy Spirit upon Peter such that people were being healed by his shadow passing by. So there came a multitude out of the cities round about Jerusalem, bringing sick folks and them that were vexed with unclean spirits and they were healed every one of them. Thank God that when we are anointed we can walk by the power of the Holy Spirit and see healings come all around us. I am thankful that my wife is working again overcoming the coronavirus symptoms and what a mighty God we serve who answers prayers of His saints.
