Bible Commentary for Acts 5:5

Wesley's Notes for Acts 5:5


5:5 And Ananias fell down and expired - And this severity was not only just, considering that complication of vain glory, covetousness, fraud, and impiety, which this action contained: but it was also wise and gracious, as it would effectually deter any others from following his example. It was likewise a convincing proof of the upright conduct of the apostles, in managing the sums with which they were intrusted; and in general of their Divine mission. For none can imagine that Peter would have had the assurance to pronounce, and much less the power to execute such a sentence, if he had been guilty himself of a fraud of the same kind; or had been belying the Holy Ghost in the whole of his pretensions to be under his immediate direction.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 5:5


Ac 5:5 Ananias . . . gave up the ghost. Fell down and expired. There was a visible judgment upon him for his great sin. It was inflicted by the Holy Spirit through Peter, and shows how hypocrisy is regarded by the Lord. Great fear came on all. Severe examples occurred at the outset of both Dispensations. Note the case of Nadab and Abihu (Le 10:1,2) and the sin of Achan (Jos 7:16-25).

  • Alex on Acts 5:5
    Comments by Alex about Warfare which is in the Spritual Realm IN OUR MINDS ETC.All the scriptures about warfare can be summed up with 1 lil scripture in Rev.12 She brought forth a manchild that is gonna rule all nations. Her child is the H.G. THAT IS GONA RULE and Judge all nations meaning everybody.its just as Joel said he is gona pour out his Spirit on all flesh which is the H.G the manchild meaning mankinds fruit unto God which is the H.G. I will give them a new heart and a new SPIRIT TH H.G. Jesus said when he the spirit of truth is come ( the h.g. th manchild, mans fruit unto God via that good seed etc ) He wil reprove the world of sin and judgement and righteouness. Jesus died at Golgatha the place of a skull meaning in our minds is where our warfare is gonna take place thats y we need the mind of CHRIST. Let this mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus The great war is gona be fought in our minds like the Kingdom of God is gona be with n us. Megiddo n armageddon is near Jerusalem, thus that new Jerusalem is the kingdom of God where that warfare will take place in our Minds etc let this mind be in you that was in Christ JESUS.Thus megiddo n armageddon is in the spritual realm near new Jerusalem in our minds as the Prophet said let Jerusalem come into your minds,the very Kingdom of GOD is gona be in our minds in the spritual realm in our hearts etc. Just remember 1 thing the manchild which is the H.G. is gonna rule and judge ALL NATIONS that summes up all scriptures on warfare.I will give them a new heart and a new spirit which is the H.G.

    Is Jesus father GOD or Joseph?
  • Helen - in Reply on Acts 5:5
    God in three persons = The Holy Trinity. God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are all one and the same.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Acts 5:5
    God is the Father of Jesus. Mary and Joseph didn't have sex until Jesus was born.
  • The Incarnation of Jesus - in Reply on Acts 5:5
    Matthew chapter 1

    22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

    23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

    24 Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

    25 And KNEW HER NOT till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

    COMMENT: Joseph and Mary did not have marital relations until after his birth. Women are counseled even this day to wait 4-6 weeks to resume relations.

    In the Book of Luke you will see that the Holy Spirit overshadowed Mary. I wrote on this the other day. The Holy Spirit: is Spirit. God is spirit. Jesus is the Word of God. Mary was not touched by anything physical.

    God is the Father of Jesus.
  • James Brooks - in Reply on Acts 5:5
    Hey Roxanne;Jesus Father is God ,not Joseph.Joseph and all the rest of us have sinful blood flowing through our veins.It took pure blood shed by Christ to pay that ransom to redeem us back to God.He only had His Father,s blood in Him.Pure and sinless.
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Acts 5:5
    Jesus is God's only begotten son. (see John chapter 1)

    The first chapters of Matthew and Luke give us the details of Jesus being born to Mary, a virgin. Joseph was engaged to Mary and took her as his wife, but they had no relations until after Jesus was born.
