The Finger of God
My husband and I, along with some friends, enjoyed lunch together last Sunday and watched a documentary called, "The Finger of GOD." The second part of the film was very good: we saw GOD was at work in His goodness and greatness.
The first part of the film left me with questions like, "Why would GOD do these kinds of things like placing "gold dust" on a man lying down, right in his crotch area?" or "Why would GOD place jewels here and there just for people to gloat over?" ...It made no sense to me. I know GOD is GOD and He can do anything, and He surely can do anything He wants to, and without my or anyone else's approval; but that has had me in a stupor. If GOD rained down jewels to help a poor family in need, that would be understandable. Or, if He rained down gold dust on a dying man or one who had passed into eternity, to comfort friends and family and let them know he went to Heaven, by Him sending a little piece of Heaven's street, that would be beautiful. But you guys, the GOD I know doesn't send signs and wonders to feed people's materialistic cravings to get people to "Oooo!" and "Ahhhh!"
I have been waiting expectantly on GOD to answer this puzzling question I've had this week, "Isn't there somewhere in the Bible Lord, where You warn us about the devil doing "miracles" to trip people up and deceive many into following the wrong teachers?" Praise His Name, He answered. I won't believe something unless I know that I know that I know it is GOD teaching me. I had my guitar out and was singing Scripture songs here and there, then flipped over to Revelation. I was going to go to Chapter 21, but when it opened to Chapter 16, my eyes fell on Verse 14 that said, "For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of GOD Almighty." WOWZERIA FOLKS, THAT IS MIGHTY POWERFUL ISN'T IT?!!!!! He wanted me to warn you to be careful, because we are living in a day when we had better know what is truth, and what is fake!! In GOD's Words,
"Now the Spirit speaks expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils." I Timothy 4:1.
2 Thessalonians 2:9-10 "And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved." Please please don't be in that number. The "seducing spirits" are alluring many. Guard your heart with all diligence, for out of it are all the issues of life. "Seducing spirits" attract, entice, fascinate, excite, arouse, and deceive. The devil will take credit anywhere he can get it. "Seducing spirits" are present in miracles which lead you to believe they are of GOD, but do not point you to Him.
GOD's Spirit draws us to Him, not to the miracle. He is not a god of confusion.
GOD is Love, and He loves YOU.
