God knows everything, He is keenly aware of what’s going on and what will happen tomorrow and the proceeding days. He knows when a man will be born and when that man will die; He knows if that man will be born-again or not. He has given every man a free will so He will not intervene without an invitation.
Isaiah 46:10 The Lord declares the end from the beginning.
The Lord created all life and He knows when it will all end, but men are in charge of their destiny. I often wonder what would happen if God suddenly changed the rules, He would lock up the devil in hell and take everyone to heaven. God could take no pleasure in such an event because without faith it is impossible to please Him. People without faith have no place in heaven, they would have no reason to worship the Lord Jesus.
James 1:17 God is the Father of lights, with whom there is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
God created the worlds and all living creatures, everything is on a course and God won’t change one thing. Not even Donald Trump can make a “deal” with the Lord and I think he knows that. God will not alter His Word for anyone, He will not be mocked. God has established His laws and His Word; He will not alter it for anyone. In a world that is constantly changing, we can rest assured that our Lord is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. This is why our Lord is called the Rock, everything else we would attempt to establish our lives on is nothing but sand, shifting sand. So, what is the number one reason people compromise and stay away from the Lord and His truth?
1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
The number one source of compromise is the love of money. When people have an inordinate lust for money they don’t care who they hurt or who they assault. It is very apparent that they do not trust the Lord to meet all their needs. They don’t care who they inconvenience and they can never get enough to be satisfied. Some even alter God’s Word to justify their iniquity, but they only deceive themselves and schedule themselves for punishment. They are ignorant, thinking they can change the mind of a just God who changes not.
Titus 1:16 Some confess that they know God, but in works they deny Him.
If a man will claim to be a believer, then we have a right to witness his fruit, by their fruits you will know them. We are saved by grace through faith, well faith without works is dead, no longer alive. We must judge fruit but not the person, that position belongs to the Lord Himself. Every one of us is called to judge one person, ourselves, lest we be judged with the world. If we see a believer acting like the devil we need to pray and intercede for that person. Our God is reliable because He never changes, we can entrust Him with our life.
Men have taught me the Word of God so, I sow into their ministry.
I am grateful to them,
I pray they help many others.
I put my trust in God,
He is faithful and just.
I will reap what I sow,
I will sow to the Spirit.
You will declare a thing, and it will be established for you
