God Hates Lying Tongues

Ananias and Sapphira Died for Lying to the Holy Ghost

 

Acts 5:1-11 says, "But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession, v.1

 

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. v.2

 

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? v.3

 

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. v.4

 

And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things. v.5

 

And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him. v.6

 

And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. v.7

 

And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much. v.8

 

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. v.9

 

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. v.10

 

And great fear came upon all the church, and upon as many as heard these things." v.11

 

Mel Tari is a personal friend of mine and has ministered at Water of Life in Plano on several occasions. In his book "Like a Mighty Wind," which was written about the Indonesian Revival, there is an account on pages 32 and 33 of a man dying, because he said he did not have liquor hidden in his house. After being told that he would die if he did not repent, he continued to deny over a twenty-four hour period. He laughed at the people that were warning him by the Spirit of God. When there were only thirty-seconds left, he said, "Nah, don't tell me that stuff. You're crazy." Finally they pleaded as others counted 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Then the man fell down and died.

 

These miracles described in Mel Tari's book will most certainly be seen in the United States of America.

 

 

God bless you,
