After the resurrection of Jesus, He appeared to His disciples and gave them the great commission.
They were to carry the Gospel to the ends of the Earth and to glorify God.
The disciples were equipped to carry out the work through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
However, Herod was out to persecute them and terminate the great commission.
He had ordered for James, the brother of John to be killed and the orders were executed. After this success he then went after Peter and had him put in Prison.
While Herod’s evil campaign continued to gain momentum causing fear and death, the church was praying with more earnest.
God is a faithful God. How could God not intervene when His Church was praying?
For a little while Herod gained glory for himself. Many people cooperated with him in carrying out his evil agenda because their day to day living depended on him.
Then one day something happened.
It was a day that seemed like any other but turned out that it wasn’t because on that day God released His Mighty Angels to carry out a special mission.
Herod put on a mass performance trying to steal glory for himself. And the people on his side tried to give him the glory that he was so longing for by praising him and saying ‘ this is the voice of gods’
Can evil succeed in stealing what belongs to God?
The book of Revelation presents to us a deep insight of how Angels in heaven sing “‘Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord God Almighty, Who Was, and Is, and Is to come.”
It also reveals when they give glory, honor and thanks to the one who sits on the throne the twenty four elders bow down and worship the Lord laying down their crowns before the throne.
God has and will always be the supreme authority and to Him alone belongs all glory.
In response to the prayer of the Church for Peter, God released an army of angels and commanded a supernatural rescue operation.
God arose in anger against the evil killer.
An Angel of God struck Herod.
The Killer was Killed!

On the appointed day Herod, wearing his royal robes, sat on his throne and delivered a public address to the people. They shouted, “This is the voice of a god, not of a man.” Immediately, because Herod did not give praise to God, an angel of the Lord struck him down, and he was eaten by worms and died.
But the word of God continued to spread and flourish.
