Confusion Among God's Enemies

The Jewish leaders had arrested Peter and John, but during the night an angel let them escape from prison. The next morning the leaders wanted to speak with Peter and John, but the officers did not find the apostles and reported back to the leaders of the Jews. Then Luke writes, “Now when the high priest, the captain of the temple, and the chief priests heard these things, they wondered what the outcome would be” (Acts 5:24).
Those poor guys had no idea what they were up against. They were fighting heaven and not even Satan can fight heaven and win. However, if you keep reading the text, you will discover that the leaders found out where the apostles were; they were doing the very thing again for which they had been arrested!
