A CRUMB FROM THE MASTER’S TABLE

The Master's Table

But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back some of the price of the land? “While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not under your control? Why is it that you have conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.” And as he heard these words, Ananias fell down and breathed his last. (Acts 5:3-5)

There are severe consequences to lying.

When we purposely lie to an authorized representative of civil or federal law in an attempt to deceive, it is called a crime and there are dire consequences.

When we purposely lie to a divinely authorized and Holy Spirit filled representative of Almighty God, it is called sin and there are dire consequences. For the wages of sin is death.
