"And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles' feet." Acts 5:2 KJV

A believer should not allow anyone even their own spouse to cause them to miss out or sin against God, as the scripture reads further both received the same judgment, although they conspired together, the husband was judged then the wife was asked whether their dealings with the Apostles were true and being judged separately received the same judgment as her husband. Each one had an opportunity to be honest and they valued their relationship above their love for God. The same God who created them both and allowed them to have a spousal relationship in the first place (not that only God provided for them to have the field in their possession). They put their trust in their relationship, by obeying each other and not obeying God. A believer should God obey first in all things, whether married or unmarried and this scripture is an example of that and how careful a believer has to be in their human interactions with others. Not just husband and wife, which is the highest human form of a human relationship, all human relationships, whether Mother/Father, Siblings, neighbors, employers, friends, family relations, any human relationship that a believer has, God should always be honored and obeyed first. A believer shouldn't choose a path or make a decision that is contrary to God's way.

If only they had the courage to say they did not want to participate or only wanted to contribute a certain amount. I see a lot in the bible about the human condition of failure to communicate. In this case, failure to communicate perhaps could have been based on pride ("the pride of life'). Perhaps, they sincerely wanted to give, however, both seemingly wanted to control the situation by privately agreeing to do something separately from what was agreed upon. We also notice in the scripture that nothing is private, God knows all things.

This question was in an earlier discussion,

"Does the bible support a women Pastor or Bishop. I know already that the bible supports women in ministering the word, just to clarify."

Based on the qualifications of a Bishop, I do not believe the bible supports a woman Bishop based on qualifications ("This is a true saying, If a man desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work." 1 Timothy 3:1 KJV), however a Pastor may not necessarily be a Bishop and therefore a woman can be a Pastor or called to be a Pastor, I believe. In this scripture when the bible states a man desiring the office, I believe it is for a male to be a Bishop and not a female, since the qualifications entail having a wife and a man exhibiting leadership over his family and household.

A women and wife can be two different categories, although a wife is a woman, a unmarried woman is not a wife and is not subject to any man, only to God. The bible indicates if a married woman wants to do anything that she should ask her husband, husbands and wives should be on one accord in righteouness.

Yes, was Jesus crying out; Psalms 22:1, "My GOD my GOD, why hath thou foresaken me"._..._, repeating the words of David, who was also prophecying of Jesus in that very moment? I agree with Luke. Psalms 22:1,7,8,13,14,15,16,17,18,22,23,24,25,27,30,31

Mark 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? - Jesus said these words

Matthew 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? - Jesus said these words

Amen Marty.

Thanks for your post.

God bless.


Marty S.'s comment on 2022-04-21 23:37:06:

v. 31 a very clear statement revealing that God has already forgiven Israel (as Jesus requested on the cross) and is giving them a second chance at the literal Kingdom of Heaven. "The Kingdom of the Lord in the hands of the sons of David" (see 2. Chronicles 13:8). All that has to happen is Repentance, confession that God is right and they were wrong, and the leaders have to accept Christ as Lord, Savior, and Messiah. Of course this didn't happen in the book of Acts (see Acts 7.) on a national scale so the literal kingdom has been postponed for over 2000 years now. Now you have an opportunity to be born again into The Spiritual Kingdom of God, by a spiritual new birth (John 1:12., 3.; 1.Corinthians 12:13, Colossians 2., etc).

God will restore the Literal throne of David to Israel at his second coming; and as Joseph revealed himself to his brethren; so will Jesus reveal himself to the children of Israel, the literal Jews. Even so, come Lord Jesus!

That's great Chris, enjoy yourselves


Pam's comment on 2021-03-20 03:45:20:


It is what it says it is. You forsake God, He will forsake you. 2 Chronicles 15: 1-3 KJV And the Spirit of God cameupon Azariah the son of Oded: (2). And he went out to meet Asa and said unto him. Hear ye me, Asa, and Judah and Benjamin; The LORD is with you, while ye be with him; and if ye seek him, he will be found of you; but if you forsake him, he will forsake you.

NEW Testament

Romans 1: 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity, whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful; 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same but have pleasure in them that do them.

The Lord bless you Steven. Yes, we're enjoying our time away & hope to be back with you all at the month's end. I have been keeping up with the other's comments as I'm able to.


S Spencer's comment on 2021-03-19 08:41:59:

Top of the morning Chris,

I hope you are enjoying your vacation, and all is well.

I really mis your teachings.

God bless.


Chris's comment on 2021-03-04 19:33:55:

The Acts 5 reference is not necessarily applied by the commentator but a random Scripture from this site.

I agree with what you've written. My problem is my niggling conscience that stops me lending any support or affirmation to a party or individual that holds to unbiblical values, indeed to anti Christ teaching. One could then say, 'who could one then vote for or support?' So it boils down to the dictates of the conscience & so one shouldn't feel guilty for not aligning with a particular party or personality as each of us is answerable to God for our decisions or judgements.


Niyi Ogundere's comment on 2021-03-04 09:29:59:

Reply to Dave --- Acts 5:33 Decisions to vote for any aspirant to any political position should not be based on only one issue-(abortion). It should be based on his comprehensive plans/propositions, the individual past record, openness and readiness to embrace the community but not divisive. However note that your question is not relevant to Acts Chapter 5 bible study.


Alex's comment on 2020-10-29 07:24:41:

Alex comments about the deity of Christ, How can we know that Christ is truly God ?, Only 1 way we can know for sure its by his WORDS which are his Seeds. The Father said to go forth and multiply but everything has to multiply after its KIND. This go forth and multiply is directed also to Christ thats y the sower of the good seed will go forth an sow his precious seed in humanity, th field being the world,our hearts is the good ground, The fruit is the H.G. Which is God, th wheat is God simply b/c the good seed is the living WORD which is the very Seed of God to whom the word came it made them Gods thus he is able to propagate after the God KIND which proves he is truly God the son, There is no way to refute this to whom the word came it made them Gods. When he breath on them his breath was his WORD which is his Seed and they received the H.G. which is God. Jesus cd not reproduce very GOD IF HE WERE NOT GOD Simply b/c everything has to multiply after its KIND.Thats y Jesus said that which is born of the Spirit is Spirit as GOD IS Spirit.ya gotta realize that the wheat is God simply b/c that good seed is the God seed to whom the WORD came that good seed it made them Gods this cannot be refuted as these are the very words of our lord. He that soweth the good seed is the Son of MAN,Christ Jesus. When he breathe on them he was sowing seed propagating very God as his breath was his seed/WORD . They don't call him the bridegroom for nothin he has a Seed to sow in humanity . Only God and Christ cd reproduce very God in us sinners. We be the FIELD TH WORLD TH bride. Thats y the good seed is the Pearl of great price, Its the very seed of God. Thats when he said b/c i have spoken these words ( seeds ) sorrows have filled your hearts when a woman is in travail she has sorrows b/c her hour is come but after the CHILD comes which is the H.G her sorrows are turned into joy.then he said he wd see us again simply b/c the CHILD IS THE H.G another CHRIST, God

Thank u so much i am rn telling my testimony so thsnk u 4 verses to go with it, im for real very thankful with ur response God bless you


Richard in Christ's comment on 2020-10-28 23:54:21:

Hello. If you truly care about him. Along with him saying he would listen to you about God. What I would say or start with is: "Why does he worship satan and where did he learn about him from"? As this could have come to him in many ways like music, family, trend, etc. Then just try to tell him the truth that satan does not care about him or anyone but himself. The devil knows he is already damned and just wants to destroy as many lives as he can. Here are a couple Bible verses I looked up showing that satan is the enemy and is already damned.

Matthew 4:1-10 , Jesus being tempted by him in the desert.

John 16:11 , the devil(prince of this world) has already been judged

Revelation 12:7-9 , satan being cast down to earth

Revelation 20:1-15 , satan cast into the lake of fire

Jude 1:6-9 , fallen angels and Michael Archangel contending with devil

John 8:44 , devil is the father of lies

Galatians 5:19-21 , lusts of the flesh(what the devil wants people to do)

Along with the others who responded to you. All else I can really say is be careful. Pray to our Father and Jesus Christ to lead you. Maybe try to read through the Bible with him. Show him that Jesus Christ is the only way. He may turn from satan or you may have to leave him. You will be in my prayers. God Bless.


:)'s comment on 2020-10-28 23:43:38:

thank u so much and he really did say that kinda stuff im kinda under 18 so i dont prepare to do any thing with marriage or the big s word haha but yea thank you im so glad i have some fellow believers to help me thank u God bless you


Mishael's comment on 2020-10-28 23:31:14:

Some people react badly to rejection and others just walk away, on to the next woman.

Just tell him the truth. You are saving yourself for marriage. Saying the M word usually results in him moving on.

Don't grieve. Just thank God you are free and will not be tempted to think satan is a dude in a red costume. People who say stuff like he has already, has been seduced by evil.

Go on youtube and watch some spiritual warfare teachings.

Sex outside of marriage creates soul ties inside of our hearts. It causes a lot of sorrow later. Read 1 Corinthians chapter 7. Wait for Gods best.


:)'s comment on 2020-10-28 23:18:05:

Walking too close to the fire's comment on 2020-10-28 22:39:26:

You're already in spiritual danger.

People who say what he has; are already hosts to the demonic.

I've had plenty of that kind of unpredictable activity. It's worse than the worst scary devil movie you've Ever seen.

Please trust me that this is one you need to walk away from.

You can give his name to some prayer warriors at your church. Yes, they'll need to know his beliefs.

I know you're excited at this age, but life is long. You can pray NOW for your future husband. Pray you both will keep yourselves pure until marriage. That you both will love the Lord.

Then wait till God brings you both together. Read of the Psalms 31 Christian woman. That's what men really want. A gal with a good heart and a good mind.

You're going to have a wonderful life! Just wait for God to bring it to you. Research the definition of: chastity. It's the most valuable quality you possess.
