Today we read one chapter in the Acts of the Apostles and three chapters in 1 Samuel.
Acts 5, Ananias and Sapphira were lying to the Holy Spirit and fell down dead. This lead to great fear and great power in the Church. An Angel of the LORD came during the night and freed the Apostles that had been jailed the previous day. They went back to the Temple courts and got called in to the Sanhedrin again for the crime of preaching about Jesus, but Gamaliel gave them good advice, they listen and after flogging the Apostles they let them go.
In 1 Samuel 11 King Saul rescued Jabesh Gilead. Then the people reaffirmed Saul as King.
1 Samuel 12 contains Samuel’s speech at Saul’s coronation.
1 Samuel 13 the real trouble began, Saul offered an unlawful sacrifice, so God would no longer fight for them, Saul’s kingship would be taken away and God would choose a king after his own heart. The weapons for the army were taken away from the Israelites and the Philistines took control of the iron trade.
