Today I'll be resuming back at the topic after my long unwilling break.... I am happy to have you back and I must confess I missed you a lot especially those loving comments and discussions of yours that follow each post.
The scripture we had a pause on was Genesis 26.
7 And the men of the place asked him of his wife; and he said, She is my sister: for he feared to say, She is my wife; lest, said he, the men of the place should kill me for Rebekah; because she was fair to look upon.
Nugget 4: Sometimes Obedience brings more than you can handle!
But if you know the size of the blessings coming your way you'll understand the magnitude of the problems you are going through. If you know the what is ahead, you'll know why you're so stucked presently. You are too glorious not to be attacked and tried! But fear brings about Lies, and Lies results to death.
The men of the place asked Isaac of his wife: wherever God places you, you have authorities that tend to question your dominance but we all have to learn from this passage that only the Truth gives Dominion.
Nugget 5: Do not give in to fear, God is with you. 'In the waters and fire He is there with you.' speak the truth always because every time you are tempted to tell a lie and you refuse you have passed a test of progression into God's promises for your life.
8 And it came to pass, when he had been there a long time, that Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out at a window, and saw, and, behold, Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.
Nugget 6: we all know how it feels when you think a lie you told is buried only for you to discover its springing up up again . The truth is you tell a lie but you bury the truth and the truth cannot be killed nor buried; it springs up back to live.
Its the truth that springs up here that saves not the lies you long told. Let Isaac try cover up for his lies he told Abimelech, he would have been dead.
10 And Abimelech said, What is this thou hast done unto us? one of the people might lightly have lien with thy wife, and thou shouldest have brought guiltiness upon us.
Nugget 7: When you tell a lie, you alone do not deviate, you cause those around you too to deviate. You make them operate with you on a platform not written by God. ' Isaac almost brought guiltiness upon Gerar and her people'.
11 And Abimelech charged all his people, saying, He that toucheth this man or his wife shall surely be put to death.
Nugget 8: The hidden fact about lies to be unveiled is that when once told it takes life. The truth makes you free, it makes you untouchable.
Nugget 9: You would not know how much you have buried with the truth until the truth arrives
A lie doesn't save you, It slaves you!
Isaac told a lie to save his life but instead slaved his life. He could not sow in the land, He remained the same way he was when he entered into the land with just what he had- Rebekah!( his wife turned sister). That's just the same way it applies to us all, nothing in our life is worth a lie, every constituents in us us made f the truth even our destiny and it takes the truth to get it fulfilled.
When we continue to lie, we live a different LIFE(Living In False Expressions) said
Take some moment to pray this piece: What lies had cost me in times past let the truth which is Jesus Christ cure me of them in Jesus name.... Amen.
