This week's message

 The case of Ananias and Sapphira

Acts 5:1-16.

The name Ananias means:  whom Jehovah has given to freely.

 Sapphira means, a sapphire, a precious gem, or precious stone

     These were two prominent blessed people in the community.

 How do you serve God with the blessings God has blessed you with?

 1. The sin of this couple was the sin of untruthfulness to their vow.

v    They made a vow to sale one of their land and give the money for the ministry and they sold it in a price they never imagined and the devil tempted them to keep back some of the money. And the lied before the Lord.

v    Eccl 5: 4-5 When thou vowest a vow unto God, defer not to pay it; for he hath no pleasure in fools: pay that which thou hast vowed.  Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay.

v    2Sa 15:7  And it came to pass after forty years, that Absalom said unto the king, I pray thee, let me go and pay my vow, which I have vowed unto the LORD, in Hebron.

v    What vow have you made before the Lord?

1.     The vow of holiness. Rom 12:1-2

2.     The vow of fidelity, faithful to one another till death do part us.

3.     The vow of ministry, I will serve the Lord forever no matter what

4.     The vow of availability, { I will be there for you}

5.     The vow of commitment, {I will do it for the glory of God}

v    God is a covenant keeping God. Ps 89:34.  My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips.

v    It is time to renew your covenant with God

2. The sin of lying against the Holy Spirit. Acts 5: 3 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?

Sins against the Holy Spirit

1.     Do not grieve the Holy Spirit. {Eph 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption}.

2.     Do not resist the Holy Spirit. {Act 7:51 Ye stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost: as your fathers did, so do ye}.

3.     Do not quench the Spirit. {1Th 5:19 Quench not the Spirit}.

4.     Do not blaspheme the Holy Spirit. {Mr 3:29  But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation}

God want us to:

1.     Yield to the Holy Spirit.

2.     Be led by the Holy Spirit.

3.     Obey the Voice of the Holy Spirit.

4.     Be Baptized by the Holy Spirit.

5.     Be filled with the Holy Spirit.

6.     Walk in the Spirit. {Gal 5:16  This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. Gal 5:25  If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit}.

7.     Be anointed by the Holy Spirit.

8.     Used by the Holy Spirit.
