Hey God-loving people. How are you, hope kool. It's a Sunday morning and silly me with all my troubles I should be in Church not on the internet; yet i feel i need to be here.
I read the comments about my last post and i feel as though something is not right here... What I mean is, God cannot break His own rules.
Case1: God could easily have revoked His " you eat the forbidden fruit and die" commandment to Adam and Eve, but He didn't- because He is a just God. He loved them but had to abide by His onw laws or else He would be untrue to Himself. He respects His laws. What kind of God would it make Him if He was not consistent?
Case2: Samson. Was he not such a great man of God? However, when Samson got himself into trouble, God could only do as much as He was asked...the last strength to drown the Philistines. He loved Samson yes? But His love does not make Him overlook his justice.
Which leads up to my point- Since God did not want man to take the burden of sin, coz that would mean perishing for everyone, He had to find a legal way to redeem Him. Not just come tell the devil "sucker" singe him and make people holy, no! He had to send Jesus, in the form of a man, to live like a man, to die as a man, to burden the sin of entire world- so that justice would be done.
Jesus died once, and He cannot die again. Sin is forgiven once for all time- past, present, future... Blessings are inherited from Christ once and for all time, curses cannot come unless you let them. (Heb 10:10 And what God wants is for us to be made holy by the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all time.)
God is ever consistent. Like the statement most people use to justify loss, mbu by God!! Let us examine.
And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
But consider this next scripture
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.
We blame God for the devil's work and claim we are super spiritual! Man, God gives, He does not desire to take away- When He gives, he does without repentance...read below.
For the gifts and calling of God [are] without repentance. KJV. 29 For God's gifts and his call can never be withdrawn.(NLT)
For example Saul, did you observe the wisdom of David not to slay Saul when he had the chance? Yes David was the annointed King but so was Saul! Saul would be King till he died and not by David's hand.
Consider God after saying that Jesus carried away our sickness laying boils and sicknesses on one who had believed in Him.
For all the promises of God in him [are] yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
He says all the promises. Are yes and amen. That means if you scroll down to Deuteronomy where all the blessings were laid down- they all belong to you in Jesus Christ. (Deut 28:1-14--Blessings for Obedience
"If you fully obey the Lord your God by keeping all the commands I am giving you today, the Lord your God will exalt you above all the nations of the world. 2 You will experience all these blessings if you obey the Lord your God:
You will be blessed in your towns and in the country.
You will be blessed with many children and productive fields.
You will be blessed with fertile herds and flocks.
You will be blessed with baskets overflowing with fruit, and with kneading bowls filled with bread.
You will be blessed wherever you go, both in coming and in going.
7 "The Lord will conquer your enemies when they attack you. They will attack you from one direction, but they will scatter from you in seven!
8 "The Lord will bless everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.
9 "If you obey the commands of the Lord your God and walk in his ways, the Lord will establish you as his holy people as he solemnly promised to do. 10 Then all the nations of the world will see that you are a people claimed by the Lord, and they will stand in awe of you.
11 "The Lord will give you an abundance of good things in the land he swore to give your ancestors-many children, numerous livestock, and abundant crops. 12 The Lord will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens to bless all the work you do. You will lend to many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them. 13 If you listen to these commands of the Lord your God and carefully obey them, the Lord will make you the head and not the tail, and you will always have the upper hand. 14 You must not turn away from any of the commands I am giving you today to follow after other gods and worship them.)
God is consistent. He will not break His own rules.
Back to Job and Paul. Job in his distress said God gives and takes away, Jesus on the other hand (God himself) says it is the thief who comes to steal, kill and destroy.
Divide the word -
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
We are in the new dispensation of Grace, not law.
For Christ [is] the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God.
Grace through Faith.
God breaking his own rules makes him inconsistent, unfaithful, and a liar which He says that He is not... consider the statement you made.
