: THE CONSEQUENCES OF SAYING “NO” TO GOD

DAILY INSPIRATIONAL MESSAGE 159.

TOPIC : THE CONSEQUENCES OF SAYING "NO" TO GOD

Jonah 1:1-2
The Word of the LORD came to Jonah son of Amittai: "Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before ME." But Jonah ran away from the LORD and headed for Tarshish.

The prophet Jonah was referred to by the LORD JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF. JESUS said, "As Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." [Matt. 12:40]. Jonah wanted to see Nineveh destroyed. They were the great enemy of the Jewish people. Jonah may have actually seen these cruel, ruthless Ninevites, periodically, coming down into his land and raiding his people.

In the ancient world, the record for the bloodiest and most vicious kinds of cruelty belongs, perhaps, to the Ninevites. They found more incredibly ingenious ways to be cruel than any other nation that has ever lived. They were brutal and godless and sinful -- and Jonah hated them. The one thing that he wanted more than anything else was to see Nineveh destroyed. Yet, when GOD told him to go announce to Nineveh its destruction, he fled to Tarshish.

When Jonah said, "No" to GOD, and attempted to run from GOD'S presence, his actions were all on a downward spiral. He went down to the seaside to buy a ticket to get on a boat to Tarsus; he went down into the boat; he gets thrown overboard and goes down into the sea; and he ends up down in a fish's belly.

What are the consequences of saying "No" to God for us? It will cost us;

1) GOD'S presence - a person can lose the presence and power of GOD on their life when they intentionally disobey what they know to be GOD'S will.;

2) GOD'S Place - we are not in GOD'S will when we are not in GOD'S place. GOD'S place is always a place of service;

3) GOD'S Peace – when Jonah had finally done what GOD had told him to do, there was no peace or satisfaction in his life because Jonah had an attitude problem that began when he first said 'No' to GOD, back in chapter one; 

4) GOD'S Purpose - We need to be careful what decisions we make, because they may cost us GOD'S purpose for our life. Being obedience to GOD is doing what HE tells us to do with the right attitude.

You're directly doing these to God anytime you said No to Him.......

Ye call Me Master and obey me not;
Ye call Me Light and see Me not,
Ye call Me Way and walk not;
Ye call Me Life and desire Me not;
Ye call Me wise and follow Me not;
Ye call Me fair and love Me not;
Ye call Me rich and ask Me not;
Ye call Me eternal and seek Me not;
Ye call Me gracious and trust Me not;
Ye call Me noble and serve Me not;
Ye call Me mighty and honor Me not;
Ye call Me just and fear Me not;
If I condemn you, blame me not.

Give Yourself to JESUS;
You don't have much time.
Give yourself to the Master.
HE'LL make your life sublime.
Give yourself to JESUS;
HE'S waiting just for you.
Just put all your trust in HIM.
GOD will take care of you!

May we always have a mind through which CHRIST thinks; a heart through which CHRIST loves; a voice through which CHRIST speaks; a hand through which CHRIST helps; and be a vessel through which CHRIST lives!
