Acts 5:1-10 Story of Ananias’ & Sapphria’s Deception and Consequences

October 15th, 2019

This passage can be used to shed light on the following: 

Motives in giving to charity

  • love of God/His glory, love for others
  • Want your name known 

Dishonesty

Envy with others get recognition and the limelight

Dealing with our desire to get recognition, praise, fame, be well liked

Spouses cooperating with sin – she should have refused to sin even though married

Husband & wives as checks & balances.  Obviously both husband/wife knew the family finances

Love of money

God affirms private property, private ownership

Leaders confronting sin in the church

Both the kindness and severity of God (Roman 10, Heb 10:31)

Revival - When God is moving in high-voltage – dangerous not to fear God

Revivals – mixture of true & flesh
