Is That God or Man?

How do we understand the difference between what God has said and what man says God has said?

I have been places where I have heard preaching that may as well have come from the book of “Imaginations” – and to my amazement, people drink it in, like Kool-Aid!  Astounding!

Jesus went hard at the Religious leaders He found in charge of the church during His time.  He inferred they were preaching and teaching the opinions of controlling men as if they were the Oracles of God.

It’s as if some people are trying to form God in their own image rather than having God transform us into His likeness.

How do we know?  How can we tell?    God or Man

Simple really – be in the Word, get saturated in it AND the Holy Spirit.  My Pastors of the past have all said the same thing “meditate” on the word (Psalm 1), chew it over, mull on it, don’t race through because some stupid Bible program’s algorithm has chopped it up into 365 easy pieces – there’s no such thing!!!  It’s amazing, it’s rich and powerful – I mean you can’t eat a dense triple layered Black Forest Gateau in one sitting right?  So don’t choke on the Word either – there’s no race.  Sit with The Holy Spirit and read and drink in His Presence and let Him “write it on your heart” like He promises – and that’s not the same as memory verses ok – that’s in your noggin!

Once you’re in that groove, The Holy Spirit will tug on your heart and say something like “what you’re hearing right now is not quite what We mean” – or . . . He may even say “get up and run!”

Remember God is always trying to free you up in the direction of elevation – man, when smitten with control (just like the Pharisees), will paint a picture that you’re just never quite good enough.  Got it?

John 8:36 (NIV)

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Just that scripture alone breathes touchable tangible hope and lightness.

He’s the God of the “light yoke” – not the “big stick” – Got it?

God is amazing!
