We limit the Holy One:
Do we realize how we limit God? Do we even believe, we can, and do, limit God?
How often do we think or hear, God speaks to man through the Bible, He doesn’t speak to us personally any longer.
Signs and wonders stopped with the death of the Apostles, or Disciples….
We are living in the silent years, like the 400 years between the Old Testament and New.
Many believe this. Many teach this. Many are GRIEVING THE HOLY SPIRIT.
This scripture, Psalms 78:41.
“Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.”
Psalms 78 talks of how the Hebrews, verse 40:
“How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, and grieve him in the desert!”
This Psalm recites all the miracles they were witness to and benefited from.
>Deliverance from slavery
>Crossing the Red Sea on dry land
>Angels food from heaven
>Water from a rock
And many, many more miraculous acts. What was it that GRIEVED THE HOLY SPIRIT?
“They turned back and tempted God.”
They didn’t believe God, to go in and take the land.
The author of Hebrews called it:
“Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.”
An evil heart of unbelief.
The Church is plagued with unbelief.
How often did Jesus ask, where is your faith? According to your faith…. only believe.
Fear not, only believe….
The problem with the Church today?
WE DO NOT BELIEVE.
We have limited the Holy One of Israel.
Do you hunger and thirst for righteousness?
Do you long to serve a LIVING GOD?
Set your face like flint to SEEK AND SERVE THE LORD.
“Believe God is and He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.”
Ask, Seek, and Knock…. Then be ready to receive. Amen
