WE OUGHT TO OBEY GOD RATHER THAN MEN (by benaiah juma).
Act 5:25 Then came one and told them, saying, Behold, the men whom ye put in prison are standing in the temple, and teaching the people.
Act 5:26 Then went the captain with the officers, and brought them without violence: for they feared the people, lest they should have been stoned.
Act 5:27 And when they had brought them, they set them before the council: and the high priest asked them,
Act 5:28 Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man's blood upon us.
Act 5:29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
Act 5:30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.
Act 5:31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.
Act 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.
Act 5:33 When they heard that, they were cut to the heart, and took counsel to slay them.
The word of God is giving us instructions as servants of God to obey God without wavering. We refuse to be stopped by what is said, what is heard, what is seen or anything under the sun. God gave us instructions as his children to go and preach out the word of God and win souls for his kingdom.When you preach the word of God, in truth and spirit the devil must come to attack you. If you want to serve Jesus Christ you will overcome Satan, there is no way about it. If Satan does not come against you, you are useless to God; you are not affecting his kingdom in anyway possible. If Satan does not come against you, you are not a threat to his kingdom and maybe you may be building his kingdom without your knowledge.
Preaching the word of God is not a joke, you have to be willing to die in the name of Jesus Christ. The way to the kingdom of God is filled with snakes, scorpions, and every beast that you can think of God. The way to the kingdom of God entails reproaches, name calling, hatred, rejection, persecution and death. The devil will always come against you when you preach the truth of the gospel. When I say the path is filled with snakes I mean that man is a snake to man, man is a thorn to man and a man is a scorpion to man.
But the word of God is encouraging us to rely on God and we should not waver in our faith as we serve Jesus Christ because there is a reward coming from the holy throne, to reward every man according to his works whether good or bad. If you are Christian out there and you are being persecuted for the word of God take heart and do not waver in your faith because Jesus Christ promised to be with us till the end of the world. Be blessed In Jesus name.
