Tune Into God pt 3

We have been talking these past few days about being “tuned into” God. Yesterday, we looked at a couple of examples in the Bible that proves Jesus was not poor, by any means. Amen!  I mean, He had a treasurer, Judas. Poor people do not need treasurers – rich people do.

Then we seen on the night of the last supper, when Jesus told Judas, “Go and do what you need to do,” he got up and left – without raising any eyebrows in the room!  Jesus had just told all of them that “one of you is going to betray me – TONIGHT!”  But when Judas left, nobody suspected a thing!

They all thought he was going out to give money to the poor or something!  So, obviously, Jesus had instructed him to do that same thing on other occasions, because it did not register to anyone’s minds, sitting in that room, that “something was up.”

This shows Jesus did not have an issue with “having money.” It is needful in this world that we live in. He only has an issue where “money has YOU.”  Amen!

Christians have been taught for so long that “money is the root of all evil.”  But the scriptures do not say that. “The love of money is the root of all evil.”  (1 Timothy 6:10).

It costs money to preach the gospel. Just ask your Pastor the next time you see him!  If you are not on the church Board of Directors and just think you can show up and all is well…and you give your little offering thinking “others” will give and that you need the money more than the church does…you are WRONG!

Granted, God will make sure that ministries which are doing God’s work will be taken care of.  But, the responsibility falls to us!  God holds each of us responsible.

We have been taught that God allows sickness, disease or calamities to happen in our lives in order to “teach” us something.  That is not scriptural.  Sickness, disease and calamities are covered under the curses – and we have been redeemed from the curses! (Galatian 3:13-14).

We have been taught that our children ran from God because of something we have done in our past.  We have been taught that our children must “find their own way.”  Both of these concepts are not scriptural.  It is our responsibility as parents to pray for our children and teach them that God loves them and is there for them when we cannot be.

We have been taught that we can “never know what God will do.”  But the Bible says the Holy Spirit will show us all things! (John 14:25-27).

We have been taught that sometimes God answers our prayers and sometimes he doesn’t. But the Bible says God’s answers to our prayers are YES and AMEN. (2 Corinthians 1:20).

We have been taught that miracle healings are not for today. That God developed medical centers and modern medicine so we would not have to rely on miracle healings.  The question I have for you is this…Who gave the medical doctors the wisdom to develop the techniques and medicines to treat the condition?  A medical healing or miracle is not something we should “seek” instead of utilizing the medical technology which is available.  However, if medical technology is not able to treat the condition, don’t shut God out of the picture!  If you believe you will NOT receive a miracle – your prayer will be answered just as you believe!  If you believe God is able…then He will!!!

But, I do not want you to think there is a secret “formula” or a “Seven Step Program” which, if you follow, will get you the results you are looking for.  This teaching for 2021 is not designed to do that.  There is no secret ritual or formula; you cannot “trick” God into answering your prayers; you cannot “buy” your answers.

You must operate by FAITH.  Faith in God. Faith in Jesus. Faith in the Word.  That’s it. Not faith in your wife or husband. Not faith in your job or career. Definitely, not faith in politicians!  Nor the government. No – not at all. If anything, my faith and belief in politicians and the government is that they are driving us head on long into the end times.

Which IS a good thing, if you look at it from the perspective that EVERY PROMISE given to us in the Bible concerning the End Times is about to come to pass! And that includes the rapture and the fact that WE are out of here! Praise God!

But that also means we have A LOT of work to do before then. There are about 6 BILLION people about to go to hell and most do not realize that.  That is where you and I come into the picture. It is up to US to tell THEM about what is about to happen. Amen!

OK, I’m going way over again today…
