The man who died as Ananias and Sapphira his wife!
The man that comes here will remain anonymous, but I write all of us to learn, warning, and to take care of ourselves so that this will not happen to us. We all are in danger of falling from grace and come under God's judgment or God's chastening hand!
Acts 5. 1. A man named Ananias and his wife Sapphira, sold a property. 2 But he put aside a portion of the money, and his wife knew about it. So he came and put the rest in front of the apostles' feet. 3 Then Peter said, "Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart that you can lie to the Holy Spirit and put aside some of what you got for your plot? 4 Could you not have kept it? It was yours. And you decided was not the money you sold it for? How did you decide on this in your heart? It is not men but God, you have lied. "5 When Ananias heard this, he fell and died. And all who heard it, were terrified. 6 Some young men came and wrapped the dead. Then they carried him away and buried him.
7 About three hours later his wife came in without knowing what had happened. 8 Peter asked her, "Was it everything you got for the plot?" She replied, "Yes, that's all." 9 Then Peter said to her: "How could you agree to put the Spirit of the Lord to the test? Hear footsteps outside the door. Now, those who have buried your husband, they will carry you out also. "10 As soon as she and sank at his feet and died. The young men came in and found her dead, and they carried her out and buried her beside her husband. 11 But the whole church and all who heard it were filled with fear.
Pastor David Wilkerson died a premature death, he was at full health. It may be that God took him home before the time? God rules over life and death, no other!
Scripture speaks of God is both good and string!
Rooms. 11.a 22 So you see that God is both good and strict - strict with those who have fallen, but good for you if you hold on to his goodness.
This, as I am here to tell happened in the 1980's. It's hard to describe everything as it is too detailed and focused person. Something I do not want here then said person is dead today. In my youth after I was saved and Spirit baptism, I was together with two carnal brothers who was also my spiritual brothers almost every day from 1983 to 1986 more or less. We had a great spiritual community and we acted as a spiritual entity. But then there came a person in here that divided us and slandered me. He was re-married as believers, but "legal" because when he was saved as he was rejected by his wife. But enough of that. But he led a cabal against us and especially me. I know that what he was doing was demonic and unclean. And I said to him, but he had power and influence of these my two former best friends and spiritual brothers. Sad! But in the end he went so far that I said to my wife - something I've never done before or since - that he's going to die like Ananias and Sapphira his wife!
It happened after I had uttered these words was that he died within 1 week later. This may confirm my wife. We got the obituary sent by my mother, then living in Karmøy where this happened. I had moved to Oslo and was married there in 87 \ 88 Is God the same? Yes, but not just in terms of healing, but also by allowing some to be both sick and dying, even if they are believers, if they are disobedient and stands against the living God.
1. Kor. 11. 30 Therefore, there are many weak and frail with you, and some have fallen asleep. 31 If we judged ourselves, we had avoided being convicted.
This is of course unusual education for most people. But for me it is not. And as God is revealed, we will also see that God is empty let some die. This has happened under both the old and the new covenant! There is no difference. Therefore, it is so important to live in the light and always have a free access to within its God. This makes one of such to always have everything in the light and walk in overstemmelse with God's word, always!
This person comes to this was a believer who is not walking in love. He had psychopathic traits and not others would be good, eventually it became too much, even for God, not just me. And he was removed from the earth by an early death. What you and I choose? Walking in the light or dark? For a believer it is with disastrous consequences to walk and live in darkness, before or since.
From my commentaries Revelation 2 18 Write to the angel of the church in Thyatira: These things saith the Son of God, who has eyes like blazing fire and feet like bronze:
Thyatira is the name of the modern Turkish city of Akhisar. It is in the far west of Turkey, south of Istanbul. It is 80 km from the Mediterranean Sea.
Here we meet the same Jesus as in the first chapter.
He presents himself as the Son of God and divine properties.
19 I know your deeds, your love and your faith, your service and your perseverance. Yes, your past deeds have exceeded your first!
There was no shortage of works and activities; your recent works have been your first. And Jesus looked very much positive and good, your love and your faith, your service and your perseverance.
20 But I have this against you, that you let the woman Jezebel hold on, she calls herself a prophet, but as with his teaching lures my servants to commit fornication and eat idols.
Here is a very difficult passage to interpret. Here's a woman doing, who with his teaching lures my servants to commit fornication and eat idols. And she called and considered to be a Prophet. But this is a woman or a spiritual direction in the church? As I see it as it is the most spiritual direction in the church. But there are some who, of course, possible to be used to look like Jezebel and be filled with the same Satanic spirit as she was.
21 I have given her time to repent, but she will not repent of her fornication.
Here again we see that Jesus has had patience with his church, and he has always. But patience is not forever. Even after many opportunities will these people do not repent of her fornication.
22 See, now I throw her in the hospital bed, and they engaged in adultery with her, to come in great distress, unless they repent of her deeds;
Now, the church would be left for his adultery and fornication, your sin will find you say the law of Moses and it is also true in the NT. The judgment, in particular, on them that opens up for this in their lives.
23 and her children will I pluck away death. How will all the churches would soon learn that I am the one who searches the kidneys and hearts, and which will render every one of you according to what he has done.
What is also tragic is that the ruling also will affect their children, her children will I pluck away death. Our lives are examples for those children that God has given us. We live not only for ourselves but also our environment.
Lord examines our motives and hearts. And we will get back to how we live.
Gal. 6. 7 Do not be deceived; God is not mocked. Whatsoever a man soweth, he shall also reap. 8 He that soweth to his flesh reap corruption of the flesh: but he that soweth to the Spirit reap eternal life of the Spirit. 9 Let us not grow weary while doing good. When the time comes, we shall reap, if we only do not give up.
24 But the rest of you in Thyatira, anyone who does not follow this teaching and have not "known depths of Satan," as they call it - to you I say: I do not put any new burden on you.
But not all the congregation are errant. There are those who believe. But the other is concerned with a deeper life but come further and further away from the truth. Satan's depths is the reality that surrounds itself with whether they had to say they would know the depths.
2. Tim. 3. m7 and still get lessons, but never learn the truth.
25 Keep only firm on what you have until I come.
Is one come into God's will for their lives and experience the Christian life rich as it is sometimes one should relax and not to do things well. The message to the faithful in the church receives is beautiful, just hold onto what you have until I come.
26 He who overcomes, and the last hold on the works that I want you to do, him will I give power over the nations.
Here comes the Lord Jesus into what the faithful and victorious in store. We as believers in 1000 åresriket have and gain power over people.
2. Tim. 2.
12 We must persevere,
we shall also reign with him.
He will deny us.
27 With a rod of iron he shall rule them, and earthen vessels, they shatter.
Jesus' rule during 1000 årsriket will also have elements that show that not all people are born again. It's about Jesus, with a rod of iron he shall rule them, and earthen vessels, they shatter.
Psalm 72 1. God, surrender your judgment to the king,
give the prince justice from you!
2 He shall judge thy people with righteousness,
your helpless with law and order.
3 When the mountains give the people peace
and the hills justice.
4 May the king to help the defenseless people in the
to get their rights.
He will rescue the poor
and crush the oppressor others.
28 The same power I have received from my Father. And I will give him the morning star.
All power that the Son has received from the Father and the church's power is given by Jesus.
Just before the sun rises. Can you see it in the East. Morning Star is easy to spot. It is Venus, the star that illuminates most clearly of all stars. Therefore, it was also of the old guards called "the bright morning star."
And I will give him the morning star is to get and to have Jesus in eternal possession. He is like the morning star. When all the other stars are extinguished light, he for ever and ever!
29 He who has ears, hear what the Spirit says to the churches!
Again the church told the same thing as the others: he who has ears,
hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches! To listen and live by it is of crucial importance. If one builds his life on sand or rock.
Korah rebellion against Moses 4 Genesis, chapters 15 to 18
When Israel a day came into their country, they should, every time they sacrificed an animal, mix oil with flour as a grain offering, and take some wine as a beverage offerings, and this would be sacrificed along with the animal. And the amount of flour, oil and wine, was determined after the animals were sacrificed. (May be pre-historic picture of the Last Supper, the same Jesus ate with his disciples his, before he was sacrificed)
The strangers who came to Israel to settle there, were to follow the customs and laws in Israel to the letter. For a law and a law applied to both the foreign and themselves.
Then they bake a cake of the first meal they made and give it as a gift to the Lord.
They were given instructions on how they would receive forgiveness of sins that were made in ignorance, and sin that was done intentionally. And God set the punishments for sins deliberately, could be very strict. For example, a man who had broken the Sabbath, punishable by stoning.
And that they should not forget the commandments of God and to stick to his rules, made the blue cords with tassels on their garments (påminningsdusker)
But then it happened one day that Korah, Levi's great-grandson, took the 250 leaders from the Council, and rose up against Moses and Aaron and said, "You take you too far right, in that every person in this church is holy . For the Lord is among us all. Why then certainly you lift you above the Lord's congregation? " But what Moses heard what Korah had to come up with the accusations, he fell on his face, and said to Korah and his troop: "Tomorrow morning the Lord will surely give to know who belongs to Him, and who it is that is holy. It He then chooses it, He will come near to him. So will you take you ildpanner and lay incense on, rather than the Lord's face, and then the Lord will show you whom He has chosen: and I say to you, sons of Levi: Is it too little to you that the God of Israel has separated you from the church and brought you up close to performing the work of the tabernacle Why is it necessary for you to seek the priesthood also? And what is it with Aaron, you are so unhappy about? Remember that what you now do, that you gather you accept the Lord!
And Moses sent for Eliab sons, Dathan and Abiram who had joined together with Korah, but they would not come to Moses, for they said, "You have brought us up out of Egypt to let us die in the desert, and so hold fast to be ruler over us, and blinding our people. "
Then Moses was wroth, and he cried to the Lord: "You must not look to the people's offering, not so much as a donkey have I taken from them, and I have not hurt them either." He said to Korah, " Tomorrow you and all your flock come before the Lord's face together with Aaron. And you should bring with you ildpannene theirs. "
And so it happened that the next morning, each of them brought their ildpanner and put fire and incense in them, and they had set themselves up at the door of the tabernacle. Glory of the Lord appeared unto all the congregation. But God said to Moses and Aaron, "Separate you from this church, so I can devour it in a moment. Then begged Moses to God to save the church because it was just a man who had started the rebellion. And so God spared the church . But he asked them anyway to get away from the area where Korah, Dathan and Abiram were living, for God would destroy both them and their whole house.
And later came the three men in their tent with their families.
And Moses cried to the people now, "By this you know that the Lord has sent me to do all these things, and that it has not come from my own heart. For if these men die the same way as is common among people, because the Lord has not sent me. But if the Lord does something that does not already have happened. Namely, that the earth close up its mouth and swallow them with all their, so they come down alive into Sheol, then you know all that these men have despised the Lord. " And just as he had said this, cracked earth beneath them. It opened its mouth and swallowed Korah men and all their homes, and they live down to the grave with all his.
The earth closed over them, and they perished and were wiped out by the church. And the whole congregation of Israel that were round about them fled when they heard the screams of their, for they were afraid that the earth would swallow them too. So God sent fire from heaven and consumed the 250 men who had been with Korah.
Eleazar the priest took ildkarene that these men had carried before the Lord, and used them in the way that the Lord had determined that they should be used. For no other than those from Aaron's descendants were allowed to burn incense before the Lord.
The day after this incident with Korah, Moses blamed the people for what had happened to Korah, Dathan and Abiram, and thus God's anger was kindled anew. And anger was thus out of the LORD so 14 700 men died, except for those who died for the sake of Korah. And Aaron stood between the living and the dead, and made atonement for the people against them as the plague stopped.
Then Aaron's call to priestly ministry confirmed. For of all the thirteen poles that God told them to come up with, one for each tribe, plus Levi tribe, it was Aaron's rod, Levis House, which sprouted buds and shot, and it had even finished almonds on it. This was the sign of Aaron's selection as a priest.
In the apostolic council, where a wonderful social life among the saved.
Revival was not only the fall and winter, but the Lord let every day those who were being saved to the church. The number of Pentecost mentioned by about three thousand, grew at once to about five thousand men, and there are further so that all women and children. Love Life was at its peak and, therefore, they were kind and good to each other, so those outside could say, "See how they love each other." They were waiting for (that) Jesus would soon come again, and it was very well why they sold their property and leave the values of the apostles' feet, so the poor could also benefit from their wealth, while those in the community waiting for Jesus.
Political parties and things like that these days are so much of, is completely foreign to the time, but it was introduced later, and brought much misery and confusion with them. But against this wonderful love of society, Satan direct their weapons in a very sly way. We should finally be alert to Satan's cunning.
Ananias and Sapphira had that the others also promised the Lord that they would sell their property and give it all to the apostles' administration, but here was the devil won so there was fraud and deceit in the action. Of course, they both thought it was capital that was easy to hide, but everything that is not of the light sooner or later come to light. Some people's sins are evident, and precede them to judgment, while in others they follow after. All hidden and unidentified sin will follow every man that shade.
When Ananias arrived with the money Peter clearly knew in his spirit that this was fraud and deceit in the game and said so: Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart that you would lie to the Holy Spirit and stick some of the field value to the page? Were it not for as long as you had it? And was it not in your power when it was sold? Why have you set for yourself this deed be in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God. When Ananias heard these words he fell dead.
It was probably three exciting hours of Sapphira as he waited to come home and tell how the cheating was, but he did not and why she went to Peter, but the same sin brought death also of her. The wages of sin is death. It kills social life with God and the saved. It has killed and kills many a body at a young age, and it has in it eternal death and judgment. Nothing in the world would we be God's people so afraid of sin. We must abhor it in all its guises. Get off the road to evil, says Peter.
There seems to be a harsh judgment of the sinners got, but what if Peter had let it pass without further ado, I would probably soon come to light. Every sinful seed may live untried, always brings rich fruit for death and destruction. Now there came great fear upon all who heard it. Had it been given to pass, there had been discontent and envy among those who had given everything and therefor a bad example to follow.
See how Paul in Eph. 5, 8-12 admonishes God's people. Walk as children of light, for light fruit behaves in all goodness, righteousness and truth, in the In samples where what is pleasing to the Lord, and have nothing to do with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. Do not let your motto be: How close can I move the world, but how far can I get from it. It was when Peter warming himself with the world he swore that he did not know Jesus.
There are those who believe that a child of God can not sin because it has been the nature of God. I have even heard a preacher say from the pulpit, that after God judged sin at Calvary, he has not seen since the sin, so if a human banner or pray, for God is just the same. It is a gospel of Hell itself. Here on this earth only been a sinless, namely Jesus Christ. Sin was not in him.
Each believer has still the Adamic nature, and over this we shall have victory. He who says he has no sin he fools himself, says John. Skyldfri we are in the perfect sacrifice that God brought to us in his Son on Calvary, but see there is something quite different. The only way we can achieve victory over the old man is to live in humble self-knowledge and judge sin as sin and make room for the Holy Spirit in our hearts. How old they lived victory poured, and there is no other way laid for us.
I thank God for the salvation I had experienced for over thirty years ago and to be preserved in the grace of today, but there is a deep sadness in my heart that Jesus did not have his picture clearer to me all these years. It's not in the outer photography we should emulate him, but in character, in love and all that it has in it. The material is bad, but the master capable. Paul's words in the File. 1, 6: He who began a good work in you will complete it the day of Jesus Christ, give comfort to my heart. May the Lord help us all in the new year of service in His kingdom. Both of us who serve the mission as well as any other in which each serve in their callings.
