Acts 5
Then Ananias, hearing these words, fell down and breathed his last. So great fear came upon all those who heard these things. And the young men arose and wrapped him up, carried him out, and buried him.

From my commentary:
This was a harsh penalty for a sin that seems to be common today. Some wonder if God was not excessively harsh against Ananias.
The greater wonder is that God delays His righteous judgment in virtually all other cases. Ananias received exactly what he deserved; he simply could not live in the atmosphere of purity that marked the church at that time.

This is the tragic truth of the church today. We have strayed far from the power of God and we yearn for only knowledge and things we can argue. We need to move in the Holy Spirit with POWER and might. We need to purify ourselves to be prepared for the move on God.

I like this quote from G.Campbell Morgan:
The Church’s administration to-day is not what it was, or there might be many dead men and women at the end of some services.”
