Things That God Doesn’t Want Us to Do

Pastor’s Notes

1. Feel inadequate
Jeremiah 1:8 NKJV
[8] Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you,” says the LORD.

His Enablement
Jeremiah 1:7 NKJV
[7] But the LORD said to me: “Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ For you shall go to all to whom I send you, And whatever I command you, you shall speak.

His Presence
Jeremiah 1:8 NKJV
[8] Do not be afraid of their faces, For I am with you to deliver you,” says the LORD.

His Words to Speak
Jeremiah 1:9 NKJV
[9] Then the LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me: “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.

*God`s Strength always accompanies God`s call

*2. Cover Sin
Proverbs 28:13 NKJV
[13] He who covers his sins will not prosper, But whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy.

Confession is the key that opens the door to forgiveness

*3. Don’t be afraid of change
Proverbs 16:9 NKJV
[9] A man’s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.
(Write your plans in pencil but give God the eraser)

*Don’t Be Deceived
Acts 5:36-37 NIV
[36] Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing. [37] After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered.

*Christians And the Occult

Deuteronomy 18:10-14 NKJV
[10] There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, [11] or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. [12] For all who do these things are an abomination to the LORD, and because of these abominations the LORD your God drives them out from before you. [13] You shall be blameless before the LORD your God. [14] For these nations which you will dispossess listened to soothsayers and diviners; but as for you, the LORD your God has not appointed such for you.

Necromancies talk to Spirits of the dead
Soothsayer is a fortune teller

Stay away from this
Leviticus 19:30-31 NKJV
[30] ‘You shall keep My Sabbaths and reverence My sanctuary: I am the LORD. [31] ‘Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God.

1 John 5:19 NKJV
[19] We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.

*The devil can do supernatural things to fool people
Matthew 24:23-25 NKJV
[23] “Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. [24] For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. [25] See, I have told you beforehand.

*They have their place in eternity

Galatians 5:20-21 NKJV
[20] idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, [21] envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Revelation 21:8 NKJV
[8] But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”

*Exercise your Spiritual Authority
Matthew 28:18 NKJV
[18] And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.

1 Corinthians 15:27-28 NKJV
[27] For “He has put all things under His feet.” But when He says “all things are put under Him,” it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. [28] Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.
