GOD DID NOT GIVE YOU THE PINK SLIP

PINK SLIP GOD DID NOT GIVE YOU THE PINK SLIP

In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the earth.
Reading from Genesis, the first two chapters, we read that God created everything. “Then God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him, male, and female He created them”.
God created the spirit of man in His image. We know this because God is a spirit and He created man in His image-the spirit image. Now you read where God formed man out of the dust of the ground. Man became flesh.
On the seventh day God, He rested from all activity. The work that He had done was complete.
Reading from Chapter 2: 15, the Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden, which God had made for man to tend to and keep it.
Nowhere in the Bible does God ever give the formed body over to man to do what he wants to it.
Nowhere in the Bible, does God gives anything that God made over to man.
The only thing God gave man was the free will to choose right from wrong or good from bad.
People know that when we buy anything we get a Pink Slip (or title) for what we purchase. It is the only way we can say it belongs to us. The Pink Slip is the only thing that a court of law looks at when you are trying to prove you purchased something.
God never gave us the Pink Slip to this body He formed from the dust of the ground nor this life that He blew breath into, or this world (the garden) where He placed us (man).
We never purchased this body, this life, or anything on this earth. It all was given to us free of charge.
Jesus paid a price for our lives after Adam the first man made a mess of things.
So what makes us think we have the right to do what we want; to our bodies, our life, this world or the things in this world.
Who benefits from us doing whatever we want to do? Think about that.
In Chapter 6 of Genesis, God was already sorry that He had made man. God said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth.” For God had seen the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent, of the thoughts, of the heart, was only continual evil. Hebrews 4:12 states, “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”.
Now Noah (one man) found grace in the eyes of the Lord. Noah found grace. We can find grace in the eyes of the Lord also. Should I say that grace can found us?
God did give us a way out of the mess we find ourselves in. He sent His Son Jesus Christ. “For whoever believes in Him will have eternal life”.
God did not give us the Pink Slip. He gave it to Jesus, so we need to check ourselves and make sure that Jesus is in the center of all that we do.

OPEN THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN

OPEN THE WINDOWS OD HEAVEN OPEN THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN
One of God’s promises to us is that He will open the windows of heaven for those who believe, trust, rely, and depend on Him.
We hear all the time about Malachi 3:8-10. Every church and every Preacher tells us about bringing our tithes into the storehouse so God will open the windows of heaven for us.
They do not tell us what was said before that or after that (in scripture), which is very important for you and I to know.
I am going to summarize what God is saying to us in this chapter of Malachi.
The people had turned away from God. They did not do what God had asked of them. God gave a warning to the Priests.
He told them that they had not kept His ways but had shown favoritism to persons in their administration. The Lord then asked the question, “Have we not all one Father? Have not one God created us? Why then do we deal faithlessly and treacherously each against his brother, while saying it’s not connected to religion and you are the Priest”. He also tells them what Priest should do. “The Priest’s lips should guard and keep pure the knowledge [of my ways], and the people should seek instruction at his mouth; for he is the messenger of the Lord of Hosts”.
Then God speaks to the men who come to the altar with tears, crying and asking why don’t God answerer their prayers. He tells them “that they have disrespected and divorced their wives; some have married women who don’t believe in God”. The Lord told them that He was a witness to their marriage and their wife is a companion and God made them one (flesh). Did not the Lord make you and preserve you as one spirit? And why [did God make you one]? He sought a godly offspring [from your union]. He told them that He hates divorce.
He tells them that He has sent a messenger and he shall prepare the way before Me. (God is giving them away out)
Return to me and I will return to you and do what is right before the Lord. Then He will open the windows of heaven. He will rebuke the devourer for your sakes. Read the book of Malachi; it is only four chapters long. Get a good understanding of why God said, He opens the windows of heaven.
God open the windows of heaven throughout the Bible, for different reasons for different people.
In Genesis, He opens the windows of heaven and let the rain come down, and then He closes them up again. It was not just rain that flooded the earth. God broken up the land that held the oceans, seas, and the rivers. [Genesis 7:11, 8:2]
In the 28th chapter of Genesis, God opened a window of heaven and Jacob saw the angels ascending and descending.
King Solomon one of the richest men in bible history; even today, if you would count his money, he would still be one of the world’s richest men. God opened the windows of heaven for King Solomon.
What made God open the windows of heaven?
In Genesis God made the rain come down because the people were so wicked and that their every intent and thought of man’s heart was only evil. Man was so wicked that God was sorry that He had made man. So He opened the windows of heaven and the rain came down.
Noah walked with God and found grace with God. God had Noah build a boat for him and his family.
Jacob was a man that loved the Lord and found grace with God.
God opened a window for Jacob to see the angels and give Jacob the strength to go on.
God opens the windows of heaven to destroy things He does not like and to bless the people who find grace with Him.
When God suddenly, supernaturally moves in our situation is when He has opened a window of Heaven for us.
Miracles can be explained away (why scientifically something occur) but the timing of when it happens cannot.
In the book of Malachi is not the only time God opens the windows of Heaven. He does not mean only with tithes (money) and offerings. He will open the windows in every aspect of your life.
We must trust, rely, depend, and believe only on Him, always seeing God as our source for our healing, joy, finances, our “way maker” and for everything, we need.
Ground yourself in God’s promises and God will bless you. Remember God reads your heart. God will open the “Windows of Heaven” for you.
Some of God’s promises to remember:
Psalm 34:10, Psalm 84:11, and Philippians 4:19
The Lord is “Jehovah-Jireh” which means, The Lord will provide.
I pray that God will open the windows of heaven for every person that calls upon His name in the year 2014; to show the world that He is real.
God bless the man that believes without seeing.
