I know when people don’t understand the things of God, they tend to label what they are. I also realize that some things can be lost in translation, especially on a blog.
I’ve shared stories of how God revealed His plan and what He was going to do, but it’s not an attempt to control. We all have free will and we have a choice, but then we must live with those consequences, good or bad.
I’ve been shown some things in the realm of the spirit that have not manifested and they are not all good. I believe that some things will happen depending on what the person does. If God says we are in danger of certain things, it’s up to us to adjust and change our behavior in order for that not to happen. Warnings are just that. They are letting us know if we persist and go in a certain direction, we will have a certain end. But does it have to happen? No, it does not, provided we obey God. It’s all about changing our behavior.
But if we disregard what God is saying and continue in the wrong direction, we will reap that particular harvest and yes that could mean death. This is especially true, when God has revealed something to us. Once God says, “go this way”, if we go the opposite way, we have to live with what we have done.
Years ago, a minister out of Detroit, shared a story about how he was going home from a ministry trip and God told him to stop and go in another direction. Since he was a man who had learned to obey God instantly, he did exactly what God said. And he told his ministry team to follow him. Now here is where it get’s sticky. Most of us don’t want to follow man. But if God raises a man or woman up to see for us, it’s best to follow. Well one person in his ministry team decided to continue with the original plans and go home and the plane crashed and no one survive!!
Yes, I know some will say it was his time, and I can’t say for sure, but I think it was a test of obeying the leader. What came through the leader was a clear strong warning that I believe was designed to save EVERYONES LIFE. All he had to do was believe the prophet and follow God’s direction that came through the leader.
That is what free will is about. Some people believe it means, that you can say no to God and live happily ever after. No, it does not mean that at all. It’s means you have the choice to go your way, but you still must live with the price of your disobedience. You see God wants us to live for him and obey him because we love him.
I didn’t intend to write this at this hour, But I woke up knowing that it’s now or never on some things. And please don’t assume you know what I am talking about. It’s much more serious than you could ever know. I am a seer not a witch. It’s very dangerous to call God’s vessel something that they are not.
Keep me in your prayers.
New International Version (NIV)
21 Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way;walk in it.”
