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 husband. AND GREAT FEAR CAME UPON ALL THE CHURCH, AND UPON AS MANY AS HEARD THESE THINGS. Acts 5:10-11. This is the end of the story about Ananias and Sapphira, his wife, and the fact that they lied to the Holy Spirit, thinking they were just trying to fool man. The Holy Spirit literally dropped them in their tracks, on the spot, in church, thinking they could pull a fast one and not be caught. The Holy Spirit suddenly became Judge, Jury, and Executioner, and dropped those 2 where they stood. Because of this incident, the whole church was struck with fear, AND ALL, AS MANY AS, WHO HEARD THE STORY BECAME FEARFUL, and were very careful to only speak Truth when dealing with anything related to The Church. Now, only the "Hard  Core, Hungry for Christ", dared join themselves to the Living and Holy Spirit controlled Church. Here's the point. Great Fear fell on those hearing this story, even second hand info. If something like this happened in a church here in America today, almost no one would  believe it. Today, we are a, "I'll believe it when I see it", mentality. An unsaved friend recently told me, "If Jesus Himself came to talk to me, I MIGHT Believe Him".  The fakery of the "miracles" of most of those silly TV preachers has hardened the hearts of so many people, they have no interest in religion. Try this, tell them about some miracle that recently happened in Africa, and see how they react. "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears" ; 2 Timothy 4:3. WE ARE NOW IN THOSE TIMES. Prepare yourself, even your friends are turning away from what you have say to them about the Lord. BUT STAY STRONG, KEEP PREACHING THE WORD, keep talking to them about Christ, and maybe you both will, Be Blessed.
