V; 3,4. — to lie to the Holy Ghost. thou hast not lied unto men, but unto GOD.

The meaning is : Ananias, by Lying to the Apofiles in whom the Holy Spirit dwelt, did in effect Lie to the Holy Spirit; and Lying to the Holy Spirit, was the very same thing as Lying to GOD bimself

, who dwelt in the Apostles by his Holy Spirit. The like manner of speaking, is very frequent in Scripture. 1 Sam. viii, 7. They bave not rejected THEE, but they have rejected Me. Luke x, 16, He that despiserb rou, despiserb ME ; and be that despiseth ME, despiserb HIM that fent me. And i Ther. iv, 8, He ibat deSpiserb, despiseth not MAN, but GOD, who hath also given unto us his HOLY SPIRIT. He therefore


that lied to the Apostles, lied to the Holy Spirit; and he that lied to the Holy Spirit, lied to GOD who gave them his Holy Spirit. Again; CHRIST himself is said to be in them, who bave the SPIRIT of Cbrift, or in whom the SPIRIT of Christ dwelleth, Rom. viii. ver. 10, compared with ver. 9. And That which is called the Demionstration of the SPIRIT and of Power, 1 Cor. ii, 4; is in the next verse called, the Pewer of GOD. In like, manner, 1 Cor. iii, 16, Te are the Temple of GOD, for the SPIRIT OF GOD dwelleth in you: And Ephef. ii, 21, 22, Ye are an Hoy Temple in the Lord, an Habitation of GOD through the SPIRIT.

And what the Apostle says, 2 Cur. vi, 16, Ye are the Temple of the Living GOD; is in another place thus expreft, 1 Cor. vi, 19, Tour Body is the Temple of the HOLY GHOST, which is in you, which ye have of GOD. Now, as our Bodies, by being Temples of the Holy Ghost, are the Temples of GOĎ, because God dwells in us by his Holy Spirit ; fo, Lying to the Holy Ghost, is in like manner. Lying unto 'GOD, who spake in the Apostles by his Holy Spirit.
