Word of God and Truth (2)

  • Oh but he’s a sovereign God. Yes He is, but that doesn’t mean He controls everything. That's where we ended part 1 of this teaching. Now let's look at the definition of sovereign and get the religion out of it:


    1. a monarch; a king, queen, or other supreme ruler.

    2. a person who has sovereign power or authority.

    3. a group or body of persons or a state having sovereign authority.

    4. a gold coin of the united kingdom, equal to one pound sterling: went out of circulation after 1914.


    5. belonging to or characteristic of a sovereign or sovereignty; royal.

    6. having supreme rank, power, or authority.

    7. supreme; preeminent; indisputable: a sovereign right.

    8. greatest in degree; utmost or extreme.

    9. being above all others in character, importance, excellence, etc.

    Where in that definition does it say controls everything. Even where it says a person who has sovereign power or authority, it doesn’t say to control people or things or cause them to happen.

    You see, the church has wrongly defined and wrongly believed this thing called sovereignty because it sounds so spiritual. God is in charge of providing for your salvation and healing and He did so at the cross. It is already finished. He does not control whether you will decide to receive these gifts. That’s your choice. You are in control of your choices.

    James 4:7 reads in the NLT “So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”. Once again, if God were in control of everything, this scripture would be of no value. For instance. If you humbled yourself before God, and God wanted to put some disease on you to teach you something, the second part of this scripture would be of no effect. You could resist the devil all you wanted and he would not flee.

    Beyond that however is the truth that first we submit to God, then we resist the devil. We don’t cry to God to get the devil off of us. There’s the problem. People don’t resist, but rather embrace the enemy.

    It goes like this. You feel a pain in your chest. The enemy tells you it’s heart problems. You’re going to die. You start to have fear. You start to embrace it by talking yourself into it.

    Instead we must submit to God. That means submit to the truth of His word. That’s completing the first part which says submit to God. Even in this vs 7, scripture says resist the devil. So submit to God and resist.

    It is by His stripes that we are healed. 3 john 2 declares prosperity and good health. We could go on and on with examples. To receive salvation we had to submit and resist. In finances we ought to submit and resist. You were told you can’t have children. Submit and resist.

    I couldn’t even be teaching this truth, that some will not receive, if God controlled everything. Although this teaching is a revelation from God, I still have the choice on how to phrase the sentences.

    God has given us all the great gift of choice. He does provide us information and direction on the right choices to make. Submit and resist. Give and it shall be given. Give each man according to the purposes of his heart. Honor mother and father. Keep standing firm (Galatians 5;1). Don’t be subject again to the yoke of bondage.

    Romans 12:2 reads “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect”.

    Well that’s a nice scripture, but why doesn’t God just do this for us. God is in charge of the transformation, but you have the choice to let him by changing the way you think or renewing your mind as it says in the KJ version. Get rid of the old mindset, the stinking thinking, and renew your mind to the truth of God’s promises. It will automatically transform you.

    2 Corinthians 5:17-21.

    17 This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

    There’s no question in this scripture that someone might become a new person. It states they have become a new person. The problem is that people just don’t know who they are. The new life they now have in Christ is hindered by their choice to continue to embrace their old dead life of the past.

    18 And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him.

    Did you notice that our new life in Christ is a gift from God? So what are you saying to God when you keep trying to do it yourself? Thanks for the gift, but no thanks. I don’t trust what you have given me or what you said it was. God gave us this gift so we could experience it and then gave us the task of reconciling others to Him.

    19 For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.

    Here’s a good scripture for those who say God cannot look on sin. Here’s the problem with that statement. “God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself.” Figure it out. Where was God?

    20 So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”

    21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

    This puts the final nail in the coffin of religious beliefs concerning sin. It destroys the wrong teaching that we have to continue to beg God to forgive our sins. Look at the other teachings on this website that totally destroy, by the truth of scripture, the notion that we have to continue to focus on sin.

    God MADE Christ, who NEVER sinned, to be the offering for OUR sin. Why? So that we could be MADE right with God through Christ. Not so that we could try through works and performance to get right with God.

    Christ did not become a sinner for us. God MADE Him to be sin for us. We cannot become righteous through our good deeds, or works, or performance. God MADE us righteous through Christ.

    In closing, something I’ve said before and will continue to say. “Many people believe the bible is the Word of God, they just don’t believe God in the Word.” Grace and Peace.
