And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came
upon them, Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from
the dead. And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.
Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.
And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes, And Annas the high priest,
and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were
gathered together at Jerusalem. And when they had set them in the midst, they asked,
By what power, or by what name, have ye done this?
Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said unto them,
Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel, If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the
impotent man, by what means he is made whole; Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel,
that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead,
even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of
you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there
is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant
men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.
But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves,
What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest
to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it. But that it spread no further among the
people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name.
And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.
And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had
said unto them. And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said,
Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:
And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may
speak thy word, By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by
the name of thy holy child Jesus.
Also, if you are not already, you need to be listening to these Scriptures. We have these available for you to listen online or you can get a copy to play in your car or when you're sleeping at night. For me, I listen to the Scriptures on healing while I am sleeping because your spirit-man never sleeps.
Have a Blessed day,
Healed of Cancer
