God Has Ultimate Authority Over Both Heaven and Earth.

February 25th 2016

God Has Ultimate Authority Over Both Heaven and Earth.

Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men. (Acts 5:29 KJV)

Peter was often an often impulsive fellow who strived to an obedient servant of God.  He and other apostles took a moment to consider, rather than reacting according to their emotions, paying attention to the Truth at work in this situation at hand.

Peter and the apostles understood there were two principals at hand in this situation:  one, that they were to obey the precepts and commandments of God first and foremost, and secondly that God had placed or ordained leadership and authority over them in this world.

These men understood that when values, traditions, or rules of mankind based on this earth called for them to violate or set aside the plumb line God has clearly established, they were to follow after that which God has set in place, rather than that which man has deemed right in his own eyes according to looser standards at work in this world.

    Your only objective is to sell books and make money off the name of the Lord.

      I have just received both your replies to my post and thank you for your interest in our ministry. Patience for a reply must not be your strong point as you sent a second reply because I did not answer less than 10 minutes later. I will be glad to answer both of your concerns in this post. No, our interest is not just in selling books. Frankly. we have not sold many books but most often just give them away. I would even be willing to send you at no charge a free book of your choice (except Women of Grace because I do not have any copies to give away at the moment). If you are willing to give me your address I can send a copy to you. Our interest is in furthering the gospel message and not in profiting financially ourselves. God bless and have a great day!
