You Cannot Negotiate With God

You Cannot Negotiate with God Maybe it would be better to say, you should not try to negotiate, because you will never get the positive result you had been seeking! The Lord of Hosts says; “I am the Lord, I do not change;” – Malachi 3:6 You may change, and probably will change, but God says; “I am the Lord, I do not change.” Yes, but what if …..  I Am The Lord, I Do Not Change! But, but, but,  “I AM THE LORD, I DO NOT CHANGE!!! “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning!” – James 1:17 When you try to Negotiate with God you will not get exactly what you desire, in the same way, or expect the same Outcome, because He says, I am the Lord, I do not change! It doesn’t mean He doesn’t love you or that He won’t help you, it’s just as you change, He doesn’t! There is no negotiation. Moses, Balaam, Jonah Case 1 – After the escape from Egypt, Moses was in the desert with the Israelites who were complaining about the lack of water. God told Moses to SPEAK to a rock and water would come out. But instead Moses got angry at the people and STRUCK the...

God’s List of Abominations These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him; PRIDE (a proud look) LIES (a lying tongue) MURDER (hands that shed innocent blood) PLOTTING EVIL (a heart that devises wicked plans) EAGER TO DO EVIL (Feet that are swift in running to evil) PURGERY (a false witness who speaks lies) – like in court STRIFE (and one who sows discord among brethren) like in families (Proverbs 6:16-19) Murder is only #3 on HIS list? How can this be? Let’s look at Merriam-Webster Dictionary definitions: Pride:   inordinate self-esteem Lies:     something known to be untrue with intent to deceive Murder: killing a person with premediated malice Rule #1   GOD IS 100% LOVE Since the beginning of time, HE always wants the very best for everyone. There has been no change in His desire – even when you make a blunder/mistake or intentionally do wrong (sin). However, we don’t want to admit our errors. This pride STINKS and is the desire to be right all the time. WHY PRIDE IS #1 When (not if) we sin our PRIDE won’t acknowledge we were wrong, so we can’t take advantage of God’s GUARANTEE to forgive our mistakes in I John 1:9.             “If we confess our sins, HE is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness!” So without...

Your Owner’s Manual

Thousands of Benefits Stolen from You Cars, Appliances, and Computers have owner’s manuals. If you don’t pay attention to the owner’s manual you eventually can have failures at the worst possible times. Same with your owner’s manual completed by the year 120 A.D. by 40 authors, on 3 continents, in 3 languages with more evidence than any 10 pieces of classical literature combined, but often banned – possession could mean certain death! What is YOUR OWNER’S MANUAL? The Bible! Pay attention to its content and happiness will follow you.  In the USA most never pay attention, so are subject to gossip as heard from the News Media. So, what makes them authorities? Some “experts” with no children tell their listeners how to raise children. Huh?  YOUR OWNER’S MANUAL God’s (literary) owner’s manual is so thorough, no one can ever grasp all its information. As a mature person, I just learned another wrinkle in I Timothy 1:7 where it states, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and of a sound mind. So, WHO HAS GIVEN US A SPIRIT OF FEAR? Someone has! Not God, because God has given us a Spirit of Power, Love and a Sound Mind! God’s Living Word in The Bible states (numerous times), how God gives us HIS best and will protect us –  IF – we will...

4 Steps to Receiving Anything You Need We probably have all heard someone say, “I wish I had a ____________.” But wishing won’t get you anything truly valuable. Asking God properly WILL! ANYTHING YOU NEED? Yes! ANYTHING! Maybe you are sick, poor, in danger, or made a giant mistake, etc. You can get what you NEED! IF…: So, here are the 4 Steps to Receiving Anything You Need (not want) from God. Step 1 – QUALIFICATION What if a total stranger walks up to you and says, “Give me $50 to pay off a gambling debt.” You’d give them a weird look and say, “Heck NO! Who are you that I’d give you anything?” To get anything from God, you better know His Son Jesus and be part of His family – then you can ask in His name! Here’s how.             Say this prayer out LOUD: “Father God. I have done only what I thought was right my whole life,              not paying much attention to what is right or wrong. This has gotten me into a mess. Now             I come to you for help. God, I believe in You and Your Son who died for what I’ve done wrong! Christ, Jesus, come into my heart right now! I stop trusting in myself to live and now I trust in You! Lead me and guide my life...

Whose Responsibility is Your Prosperity?

The Church or You Wonder why those who never darken the door of a church, prosper? Why do 80% of the Jews prosper when most Christians don’t? Every week we throw in a couple of bucks to the offering basket but we never see any return. Why not? Is it the church’s fault? Whose responsibility is your prosperity? Here’s good news for you! Background Because Abraham believed and trusted God, he and all his descendants were chosen as “the people of God.” He let them in on all the secrets of prosperity. Passed down through generations, Moses collected God’s wisdom in 5 books known as the Pentateuch. Those who read it were able to take advantage of God’s naturally occurring laws, including health, wealth, safety, etc. Many believe the Old Testament was just for the Jews. Jesus ushered in a New Covenant. True, but he came to FULFILL the prophecy, not replace it. II Timothy 3:16 states: All (all, All, ALL) scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction for instruction in righteousness that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. Like Oxygen and Water, anyone can take advantage of God’s gifts and principles. The Jews read the O.T. so know how to use God’s wealth principles. Most Christians don’t! Here’s some help! Responsibilities on...
