But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back some of the price of the land? 4 “While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not under your control? Why is it that you have conceived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God. – Acts 5:3 – 4
It matters not what others may feel about the wrong you have done.
Search near or far for affirming tones, but true judgment is sure to come.
Lie you may to those you believe who are in league with your backward view,
There will come a day when each deed is weighed and God will reveal the truth.
Rehearse your score and spin your deceit to those you trust the most,
But remember sad friend, try as you may, you cannot lie to the Holy Ghost.
