ACTS 5: 1-16 [ FIRST SIN IN THE EARLY CHURCH AND ITS RESULTS ]
But a certain man named Ananias, with his wife Sapphira, sold a possession, Vs. 2. 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.
Vs. 3. 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 ? Vs. 4. Whiles it remained, was it not in thine own power ? why hast thou concieved this thing in thine heart ? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
Vs. 5. And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and a great fear came on all them that heard these things. Vs. 6. And the young men arose, wind him up, and carried him out, and burried him.
Vs. 7. And it was about space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in. Vs. 8. And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much ? And she said yes for so much.
Vs. 9. Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together tempt the Spirit of the Lord ? behold the feet of them which have buried thy nhusband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.
Vs. 10. 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 nhusband.
Vs. 11. And great fear came upon the church, and upon all thatn heard these things. Vs. 12. And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people.
