"You might even be opposing God!"

"So in the present case: I tell you, keep away from these men and let them alone, for if this plan or this undertaking is of man, it will fail, but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them. You might even be found opposing God!" Acts 5:38-39

This man did not realize how right he was.

The new move that was taking over Jerusalem was of God and it has not failed. It will not fail, because God cannot fail!
There is another issue that seems to be of God right now also. That is the move toward a more simpler fellowship. Moving away from the traditional setting to a more relational type gathering.
So much is pointing to the fact that God is moving us back to the way it was considering how we meet.
So much has been influenced by the world that you can't even recognize what is of God and what is not in the church. We have become to much like the world.
Now it seems again that God is moving on His people to go forward and continue to follow Him wherever you are. Assembling not just on Sundays in a big building with a name on the front.
But meeting on the street in the offices or other places not labeled as traditional.
I would just like to say that this is something some seem to be opposing, and I would like to point out to the scripture above again.

"If this plan is the undertaking of man, it will fail, but if it is of God you can't overthrow them. You might even find yourself opposing God!"

So before you go off and start critizing something that is not the traditional way be careful. As you may be opposing God.
Test the spirits and see if they are of God.
If this whole move toward a simpler way of Godly meeting is not of God then it will fail.
If it is of God you will not be able to stop it, you may be finding yourself joining.
