Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 28 January 2024 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche: They Lied, And Then, They Died
TOPIC: They Lied, And Then, They Died (Seeds Of Destiny 28 January 2024)
SCRIPTURE: Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband. Acts 5:10 (NLT).
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To lie collectively is to die collectively. You will die with anyone you lie with.
The Book of Acts 5:1-10 gives us the story of a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, who sold their possession and kept back part of the money, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the Apostles’ feet.
But Peter said, “Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.” Acts 5:3-4.
And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.
And about the space of three hours after, his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.
And Peter answered unto her, “Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much?”
And she said, “Yea, for so much.”
Then Peter said unto her, “How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.”
Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband.
Now, if Ananias and Sapphira did not bring anything to God from the proceeds of the land they sold, nobody would have asked them for anything, yet they went ahead to lie before God, and consequently died on the same day. To lie is to die, and to lie collectively is to die collectively. You will die with anyone you lie with. That will not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: To lie collectively is to die collectively. You will die with anyone you lie with.
- Avoid the temptation of telling lies. Do not agree with anyone to tell lies.
- Make up your mind to speak the truth always.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to speak the truth always. Help me to keep my tongue from every lie, deceit and crookedness, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
