Without God there will always be destruction of anything human.
If this endeavor or this activity is of human origin, it will destroy itself. But if it comes from God, you will not be able to destroy them; you may even find yourselves fighting against God.” They were persuaded by him. After recalling the Apostles, they had them flogged, ordered them to stop speaking in the Name of Jesus, and dismissed them. So they left the presence of the Sanhedrin, rejoicing that they had been found worthy to suffer dishonor for the Sake of the Name. Acts 5:38b-41
Acts 5:34-42, Psalm 27 & John 6:1-15
We often look to someone with authority to persuade our minds into motion accomplishing purpose over passion. We may look upon others in government or entertainment to fancy our brow or we may become excited from the family member in our life that is so righteous in the LORD we look upon them with admiration and desire to follow in their footsteps.
The Sanhedrin began their inquiry with the intent to rid them of what they deemed as peasants speaking of and following a person “claiming to be someone important.” Their minds were persuaded by someone “respected by all the people” to act with purpose over passion looking upon this as others who had tried but “died” after a short following sharing the same result will happen to these men speaking of Jesus and performing signs in His Name if it is NOT of God.
“A Pharisee in the Sanhedrin named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law” reasoned by authority but as importantly audacity of placing God’s Will first in describing the persuaded purpose. He said, “So now I tell you, have nothing to do with these men, and let them go. For if this endeavor or this activity is of human origin, it will destroy itself. But if it comes from God, you will not be able to destroy them; you may even find yourselves fighting against God.” Acts 5:38-39a
What we learn and passionately follow over 2000 thousand years later is the death they inflicted upon a man cleansed the sins of the world Resurrected not dead as all the others had obviously become. Without God there will always be destruction of anything human but in God we find His Son Who came to the world to rectify sin lifting up humanity to know Truth living in faith, hope and love of charity.
Here, we become conscious of the people in our lives who follow the Truth lifting us up in prayer persuading us to know Christ’s forgiveness. There will always be people who we love and respect with all our heart who pass along the Truth of Christ amidst the suffering of pains, predicaments and problems that end their life amidst the continued celebration of Christ’s Salvation. We can’t seem to understand why someone of such respect would have to undergo the devastation of accident or disease. Today, two of my children will lay to rest the soul of their grandmother from their mother’s side who has lived with such obedience. She was such an amazing influence upon our children throughout their life living by Christ’s Truth praying for peace over perversion. We pray for her soul to be united with You my LORD and my God and we thank You Jesus for her life lived in the Truth of Your Gospel. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today to follow only Your Authoritative of Truth. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Greg Bishop has constant prayers. Day six of a Novena for Russ Thoms and his daughter Serenity. Prayers for Sonia Salgado’s soul and safe travel for all attending her memorial today. LORD from Psalm 23:1-4 I chant: ”The LORD is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack. In green pastures He makes me lie down; to still waters He leads me; He restores my soul. He guides me along right paths for the sake of His Name. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and your staff comfort me.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
By Jesus I Eternally Last– In honor of Michael Keane
Constant at business
Asking God to breathe
His grace upon His Word
Understanding His mercy’s need
How can He love me?
By faith without sadness to see
Shown a new life to be
Freedom enjoyed through He
Pray for me I ask
Acceptance of self’s past
Christ’s love I grasp
By Jesus I eternally last
