When Gamaliel Speaks, The High Council Listens

In Acts 5 the Apostles were teaching about Jesus in the temple. The High Counsel (the Sadducees) didn’t like it, so they sent jailers to arrest them and put them in jail. While in jail, God sent an angel of the Lord to release them from jail without the jailers even noticing. Then, because the Angel of the Lord told them to, they went back to the temple to teach more.

When they were supposed to be brought before the High Council the next day, they weren’t in the jail. They were found at the temple, again. The High Priest was furious and wanted to put them to death immediately. Scripture says:

But Peter and the apostles replied, “We must obey God rather than any human authority. Acts of the Apostles 5:29

Because the High Council was all worked up with anger… This is what happened:

But one member, a Pharisee named Gamaliel, who was an expert in religious law and respected by all the people, stood up and ordered that the men be sent outside the council chamber for a while. Then he said to his colleagues, “Men of Israel, take care what you are planning to do to these men!
Acts of the Apostles 5:34‭-‬35

Gamaliel explained to the High Council what happened when others interfered with God’s plans, the Council had a change of heart. They let the Apostles go. On Gamaliel’s advice that if the Apostles were up to no good, it would fall apart like past situations.

We find that when it is of GOD, nothing anyone says or does can stop it, change it, or interfere with it. GOD will make it happen regardless.

We need to keep that in mind when we think we can control everything in life. When evil is involved, it gets really ugly; fast. Even with GOD in control, things can be ugly, but if we let Him do His thing, it all turns out good. His plans are perfect.

What situation do you find yourself in today? Whatever it is, God is in control. Trust Him with the outcome and answer. His promises will never fail us. He’s the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. He is right by your side. Reach out to Him. He’s waiting for you.

Dear Father YAH, I pray for the state of the world and circumstances we find ourselves in. YOU know those who are ill. Whether it be physical, mental, or spiritual. I lift up all of them, myself included, and ask for healing and transformation for Your good. Thank You for Your word, because it is a lamp to my feet. You show me the way. I pray that we see Your light and follow it. In Jesus’ name, amen.

Giving… Jesus said, “It’s more blessed to give than to receive.” No matter what is going on in our lives or around us; it’s the will of God that we give a helping hand to those in need. Dear Yahweh, Adonai Abba, I lift up all the physically ill, spiritually in need, mentally stressed, and financial stressed. I claim victory over all the chaos. I trust You to meet each need when you see fit. I pray that You will be honored & glorified in all that is happening. You’ve already said, “It is finished!” I pray we let go of any strongholds in our lives and step aside and let You do your job. Thank You, in advance, for hearing and answering this prayer. In Jesus’ name, amen.

The Black Hole

Watch this video before reading:

Proverbs 1:18-19
But these people set an ambush for themselves;
they are trying to get themselves killed.
Such is the fate of all who are greedy for money;
it robs them of life.

As you saw in the video, the guy ambushed himself and is stuck in the vault.

Proverbs 21:26
Some people are always greedy for more, but the godly love to give!

Greed is a sin like other sins. It consumes its victim. Before you know it a life is completely taken over trying to get more because it is never enough.

God wants us to be givers, not takers. Just like the scripture above says the godly love to give. We all hear the famous saying each year around this time: “It’s better to give than to receive”. We can find its roots in Acts 20:35:

And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'”

We need to follow Jesus and be more Christ-like.

So, during this joyous season of Christmas let’s be givers; not just takers.

How are you at giving? Comment and let us know.

Me: I give all of me. I’m not a taker. However, my giving isn’t necessarily materially. Like here, at the ministry, I give messages from Yahweh. I give myself to you. Those of you who follow Yahweh and His teaching that come from here receive these gifts, each day. Thank You, Yahweh!
