Message  Admin le Mer 11 Avr - 2:56 The Disciples of Christ Pt5

They were hypocrites, and loved the praise of men more than they loved God. Their hearts
were hardened, and the most mighty acts wrought by the apostles only enraged them. They knew
that if the disciples preached Jesus, his crucifixion, resurrection and ascension, it would fasten guilt
upon them, and proclaim them his murderers. They were not as willing to receive the blood of
Jesus as when they vehemently cried, His blood be on us, and on our children.

The apostles boldly declared that they ought to obey God rather than man. Said Peter, The
God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. 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.
And we are his witnesses of these things, and so is also the Holy Spirit whom God hath given to
them that obey him. Then were those murderers enraged. They wished to imbrue their hands in
blood again by slaying the apostles.

They were planning how to do this, when an angel from God
was sent to Gamaliel to move upon his heart to counsel the chief priest and rulers. Said Gamaliel,
Refrain from these men, and let them alone; for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come
to naught; but if it be of God ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against
God. The evil angels were moving upon the priests and elders to put the apostles to death; but God
sent his angel to prevent it, by raising up a voice in favor of the disciples in their own ranks.
