Listen to the Sow the Word Teaching Ministry Radio Broadcast on Wednesdays at noon on Heaven 1410 AM. You can listen on internet radio! Grow in God with Sow the Word where we are sowing the Word into the heart of man.
I have been teaching on Overcoming Temptation on the Sow the Word Teaching Ministry Radio Ministry. I want to talk today about positions that are against God and what those positions can mean when trying to overcome temptation. You cannot overcome temptation when you position yourself against God, because now you have positioned yourself against the one who made the way of escape for you.
Let me define what I mean by being against God. Some folks may not understand what I mean when I say that. They view God as a God that is all accepting. He is not a God who is all accepting. There are things in His Word that he hates and things that He has made His position crystal clear regarding. An example is sin. God hates sin . . . so if the world accepts sin and you side with the world and accept sin too, you have placed yourself against God. Let me give you another example. God teaches in Romans that homosexuality is wrong. If the world says it is ok, and you agree with the world and support gay marriage, etc., then you have placed yourself against God and made it very difficult for Him to work on your behalf. You will operate under the mercy of God until this period of grace runs out and judgement comes.
We will talk about scripture in 1 Samuel, Psalms and Malachi that talk about being against God to give you more examples. These scriptures as well as others will be shared on the Radio Ministry. We hope you can tune in on Wednesday at noon! Grow in God with Sow the Word where we are sowing the Word into the heart of man.
