A notable miracle
Acts 5 gives an account of a very interesting miracle.
16There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.
17Then the high priest rose up, and all they that were with him, (which is the sect of the Sadducees,) and were filled with indignation,
18And laid their hands on the apostles, and put them in the common prison.
19But the angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them forth, and said,
20Go, stand and speak in the temple to the people all the words of this life.
21And when they heard that, they entered into the temple early in the morning, and taught. But the high priest came, and they that were with him, and called the council together, and all the senate of the children of Israel, and sent to the prison to have them brought.
22But when the officers came, and found them not in the prison, they returned and told,
23Saying, The prison truly found we shut with all safety, and the keepers standing without before the doors: but when we had opened, we found no man within.
Now lets examine this account:
From verse 18 there must have been more than one person shut up in prison because the bible says ‘ they laid hand on the apostles’.
Verse 19: The angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and brought them ( All of them came out)
Vesre 23: The officers report:
All the prison doors were shut and the keepers standing outside the doors but no man found in the prison.
While the keepers were standing outside the gates.
The angel of the Lord opened the door while the keepers were keeping the gates.
Brought more than one person out and the keepers were standing there.
The angel of the Lord shut the prison doors and the keepers were still standing there.
All the above happened and the keepers did not know
How dumb can man be to fight against the Lord.
Our God is an awesome God.!
