Agreeing to Lie

Ananias and Sapphira agreed to lie about how much they sold their property for, but the Spirit knew the true price, because the Spirit of God knows what goes on between husbands and wives.
Peter spoke to the husband first, and when the Spirit revealed to Peter that Ananias lied, he died.
Then Peter spoke with Sapphira, “And Peter answered her, ‘Tell me whether you sold the land for so much?’ She said, ‘Yes, for so much.’ Then Peter said to her, ‘How is it that you have agreed together to test the Spirit of the Lord? Look, the feet of those who have buried your husband are at the door, and they will carry you out'” (Acts 5:8-9).
Whether this couple knew it or not, they tested the Spirit, and who is any human to give the Spirit a test?
She, along with her husband, died on the spot.
Lying brings serious consequences.
