Acts 5:38 And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing; 39 but if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it—lest you even be found to fight against God.”
Such sound wisdom by this well respected teacher of the law, Gamaliel. I believe he was a logical thinker. These kind of tests can only bring about true answers! If these men are about themselves, this mive will fizzle out. But what if they dont, they are truly sent from God, well their message and purpose will explode. This is what happened, the early church exploded like gas on a fire. Since God was behind this move, it could not be overthrown! Ten horrible roman emperors from 70-324 ad persecuted the church but never came close to destroying it. The early church reached the whole known world during this time. When one fights against His bride, the church, He takes it personal, they are fighting God.
