Herod killed James and arrested Peter. An angel brought Peter out of prison while the disciples prayed. The people of Tyre and Sidon worshipped Herod as if he were a god. An angel struck Herod down for receiving the worship. And the word of God flourished and multiplied.
God will preserve his word. Sometimes he preserves his people and sometimes he eliminates wicked rulers. Flowers come and go but the word of the Lord endures forever.
Don’t be found in opposition to his word.
