He wants the truth!

Two, three, four  

Listen to me brothers

And sisters as I tell

Of a married Christian couple who had some land to sell. (Ananias shows map)
Please listen well,

Oh yes, oh yes (Nodding and pointing to cue the audience.)

Please listen well.  

Two, three, four. One two three four.

Ananias & Sapphira said

That they would sell their land (They give the deed to a young man.)
And give the church the money that they wanted God to have. They sold their land
(The young man hands them the money bag.)

Oh yes, oh yes! (Nodding and pointing to cue the audience.)  

 

They sold their land.

But both of them decided they would lie and keep a part, (Stuff money in pockets.)

Not knowing that the Lord could see the evil in their hearts.

They kept a part.  

 

Oh no, oh no, (Shaking their heads and pointing to cue the audience.)

They kept a part!

Ananias laid the money at the Apostle’s feet.  (Ananias puts the money at Peter’s feet.)

But God knew what was going on and told Apostle Pete, “It’s not complete, Oh no, Oh no, It’s not complete!

Said Pete to Ananias, “Why has Satan filled your heart, to tempt the Holy Spirit, and lie to keep a part? Your evil heart,  

 

Oh yes, Oh yes, (Nodding and pointing to cue the audience.)

your evil heart!”

“The land and all the money were yours to keep or not. You have not lied to me alone, Oh no, you lied to God! You lied to God

Oh no, Oh no. (Shaking their heads and pointing to cue the audience.)  

You lied to God.”  

When Ananias heard these words, he fell right down and died. (Ananias falls dead.)  

And young men came and wrapped him up and carried him outside. (Wrap Ananias and drag him to the side.)

 

He fell and died, (Popping up from under the shroud.)

Oh yes, oh yes. (Nodding and pointing to cue the audience.)

He fell and died! (Ananias repeats his death scene.)

Sapphira showed up later, she was looking for her man.

And Peter asked her, “Woman, did you get this for your land? You sold your land. How much? This much? 
Yes, for your land?

She nodded as she answered, “Yes, and not a penny more.”

But Peter said, “Your gravediggers are standing at the door. They’re at the door.”

Oh yes, oh yes. (Nodding and pointing to cue the audience.)

They’re at the door.”

Don’t tempt the Spirit of the Lord; He knows when you have lied.”

Sapphira heard these words from God and then and there she died. (Sapphira falls dead.)
Sapphira died.
(Pops up her head to say this.)

Oh yes, Oh yes, (Nodding and pointing to cue the audience.)

Sapphira died.  

The young men came and picked her up
(Young men cover her with a shroud.)
and carried her outside.
(Drag her next to Ananias.)

Ananias and Sapphira now (Both pop up from under the shroud.)
are buried side by side. They’re side by side,  

Oh yes, oh yes, (Nodding)

They’re side by side. (Pull shroud back over their heads.)

So learn from this my brothers and sisters very well Don’t tempt the Holy Spirit or you could end up in hell…
O yes, oh, yes, Oh yes, Hello.  

CONGA LINE – everyone dances

God won’t take excuses,
God just wants the truth.
God can see what’s in your heart
No matter what you do.
He wants the Truth.
Oh yes, Oh yes,
He wants the Truth
We don’t make excuses.
We don’t tell you lies.
We do not have trouble,
looking in your eyes.
We tell the truth.
Oh yes, Oh yes,
We tell the truth.
