Why is it that bible scholars do not investigate My reaction to church going liars today, as compared to Peter’s day?
One day when an offering was being received, Peter interrupted it and said, Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land you sold? 4 While you held the deed, was it not your own? and after it was sold, was it not still your money? why have you conceived this lie in your heart?
You have not lied to men, but unto God. 5 And Ananias hearing these words dropped dead: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. 6 And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him .
7 About three hours later, his wife, not knowing what happened, came in. 8 And Peter asked her, Tell me whether you sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. 9 Then Peter said unto her, How is it that you and your husband agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried your husband are at the door, and shall carry you out too.
10 Then she dropped dead at his feet, and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her out, buried her by her husband. 11 And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things,” Acts 5:3-11.
Thousands lie to pastors and preachers every week about their income, and giving, they continually exaggerate and brag about their sacrifices and what they are giving up for Me, yet life goes on as usual.
Every service is a party, and to fear anything negative happening at the party is considered directly from hell. The modern day western five fold ministry are there to help everyone enjoy the party more.
People lie to their face and the prophet swallows it hook, line and sinker. The reason no one is dropping dead on the spot is given by Peter, he said Ananias you have not lied to men, but unto God.
He could not say that today in 99% percent of the cases. Peter would say to the modern day liar, you should be dead for lying, but you lied to men, not to God, so there will be no immediate consequences for your sin.
In My Kingdom the King always funds whatever He originates. He never begs, tells sob stories, uses pressure, intimidation, or threatens.
The truth is, these are man’s programs and they are being funded by borrowing from Satan’s kingdom, making the church a servant to the lender, Proverbs 22:7.
To pay salaries, mortgages, insurance and utilities, leaders put pressure on innocent sheep, including widows and the poor, forcing them into situations where they lie by not keeping their pledge. Instead of the funds voluntarily being laid at the apostles feet, to be passed out to meet the needs of the saints, Acts 4:34-35. They are taken from the saints to pay salaries and bank loans.
I AM about to turn over tables once again, causing the IRS and banks to deal with the moneychangers.
My church is a house of prayer, not a tax exempt business where souls are seen as dollar signs, and symbols of success. My Spirit cries night and day, what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 What part hath he that believes with an infidel? 16 And what agreement has My temple got with idols? for you are the temple of the living God; My Father said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them ; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be separate, and do not touch the unclean thing ; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and you will be My sons and daughters.” 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.
