the works of men will fail and God's purposes will all be fulfilled (Acts 5)

Those intent on persecuting the Church of God today would do well to remember wise counsel given anciently:


 34 Then stood there up one in the council, a Pharisee, named aGamaliel, a doctor of the law, had in reputation among all the people, and commanded to put the apostles forth a little space;
 35 And said unto them, Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do as touching these men...
 38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought:
 39 But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.
Acts 5:34-39 (emphasis added)
