God Is Not Totally In Control?

Posted on December 6, 2022 at 3:25 AM

God Is Not Totally In Control?

Too many times from Brothers, Sisters, Teachers and Preachers of the gospel of Jesus Christ we can hear, “God is in control.” This causes me some concern. Do not get me wrong – no doubt about it – God is Sovereign. And, our Sovereign Lord is – the Almighty, the True and Living God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – and yes, Creator of all.

Yet, God is not totally in control. God is Sovereign. And in His Sovereignty, He delegated mankind to have dominion over the earth and over all the animals. God provided all things mankind needs to manage this world in the systems designed by His infinite wisdom. perpetual systems such as seed time and harvest and the wages of sin is death – which continue as this earth remains. I am trying not to go off on a rabbit trail - but, I want to remind us there will be a New Heaven, a New Earth and a New Jerusalem.

Okay, back to the now. To look around, after man received this wonderful world, we look around and say… what the heck happened?!! The answer we find in Genesis. When man - that is the male and female, disobeyed a directive by God. Then sin entered a perfect harmony of life. You can read the blog on sin.

Right now let’s look where many get this semi-warped belief - that God has it all in control.. Most Christians point to Job, for His story tells us that Satan went to God to get permission to rain down destruction on my man Job.. Listen, that was Job and I want to show that God does not give permission to every work of the devil. Job was a special case, Job was hedged by the protection of God. God trusted Job and as the devil sniffed around, he found a crack/breach in the hedge. [Note: there are spiritual laws that are consistently at work. And,mankind constantly violates laws of righteousness. I want to make this plain - God does not give permission for the rape, molestation, and abuse of children or any one else. God cannot do evil nor does He tempt mankind to do evil. God is good. God is love.] For these reasons and more, I reiterate adamantly God is not totally in control. This is by God's Sovereign design.

Let’s consider some obvious reasons as well as historical events (Job, reread it - the crack was fear that breached the hedge). And there are notable passages to highlight from and/or found in the Holy Bible to bring some clarification for this radical statement - God is not in control. God is not in control and this is - by His own choice. Jesus is Lord, and God is faithful to His Word.(So, nice let me say it twice.) God is faithful to His Word - the wages of sin is death. This might be more than I can explain in this blog - but, I will try to give some condensed examples.

Let’s go way back. In the phraseology of Andrew Wommack, when sin entered the world, “God’s act of love” removed Adam and Eve from the garden and the Word tells us why. Genesis chapter 3 verses 22 thru 24 makes it plain. For the good of mankind, God would not risk mankind partaking of – eating of the Tree of Life, at that time. Otherwise mankind would have been doomed, separated from God throughout eternity. To me, Andrew Wommack says it better and provides numerous scripture in his several teachings. I will mention this one: The True Nature of God – repeatedly Brother Andrew exclaims, “God has been misrepresented by His own people.” And, I am sure most of us can testify of that. There is no use of re-creating the wheel – check out AWMI website which has a library of Truth. AWMI presents the unadulterated Word of God.

Elder Wommack can walk you and me through the Bible – making it as plain as possible – he highlights things that are there which in our daily rush or human-mindedness - when we read God’s Word, too many times reading as a duty - we overlook a whole lot. We have not created time, relationship and space for God to reveal more. Then, in our purpose that we label “knowing the Word” - we practice to memorize the scripture and do not have understanding or we get- simply the aroma of the scripture without partaking, chewing,  digesting and manifesting God’s Word in our lives. We are to meditate on the scripture day and night, that would produce a wonderful experience with God. With all our getting let us get understanding.

As a new Christian I had a radical zeal for the Lord, and I was consistently in the Word and in communion with our Father in Jesus name. Early the Lord revealed to me that every Word He speaks has a reason and purpose. And, I wanted to know His every Word. I wanted to know Him. And, time and time again in the church or by religious leaders – I heard, “God is in control,” and that nothing happens to you or me unless “God allows it.” And, that causes us - mere men and even those baptized in the Holy Spirit - to have the audacity to blame God, be mad at God and accuse Him for our every mishap and misstep. Some even curse God for the events of destruction or despair. ,Even when we know the choices and actions we made/make - might have, and possibly in nine-point-nine out of ten times, made us a target for the works of the devil–for we were totally out of God’s will or there was an opening we knowingly or unknowingly caused. . Okay, before I go there – I will stop soon because this piece is becoming longer than I wanted it to be.

When the Bible says the Word is so simple a fool could not error. Well, the teachings I and most Christians were, and are hearing, is downright wrong. To put it graciously, it “misrepresents God.” Now, I realize we have an adversary. For that cause I fault or blame none but the devil - for that devil has been working his lies and trickery for thousands of years and most have fallen for, or follow the pullings of the flesh. God understands this and is gracious in mercy.

When we approach the Word and our every day life from the greatest Truth: God is love; God is good; God is our Father; and, God does not lie - how can we say God allows all the messiness. We are responsible, the Church, God's people and all made in His image and likeness. Remember the devil influences wickedness. The devil is the father of lies… and, like Eve, we have been lied to and beguiled. We , God's children, really want to live with, live for and do the will of God. There are many examples I can mention which might be overwhelming. Again, Andrew Wommack has developed an extensive library with practically every statement he makes backed up by the Holy Bible and he gives free access to this revelatory information.

Please Church we want to stop this - and, I know it will take time, for it has been hard wired in our minds. We can start by changing our Words. Agree with God, when it says God is love, God is good. God is truly good. Lord have mercy – we sang God is in control, we preach(ed) God is in control – we shout(ed) God is in control. Ambassadors of Jesus Christ, it is time for us to walk in the power and authority given to us by the Lord Jesus.. The resurrection power of the Holy Ghost is within us. We have the greater One on the inside. The Lord wants us to possess the land, for His glory.

Let me give you another scripture reference proving God had given dominion of the earth to mankind. Genesis 1:27, 5:1 Mankind was made in the image and likeness of God. And dominion and care of this earth was put in the hands of mankind - Genesis. I digress.

When I received Jesus Christ, I was totally into the Word of God, prayer, praise, studying and learning of the things of God. However, what the Lord revealed to me did not jive with the majority of the God-fearing Saints, I was around. Then, I began to teach and preach according to the religious beliefs that I heard even though there was a form of godliness and the power of God was beginning to wane or might I say not manifested as the years went on. I remember, we had no one sick – then, we started allowing the flu and other ailments to creep in. We did not cast out demonic spirits as the Word instructed us to as we done before. The ways of the world were coming in to the church and sin was not being addressed. And, Lord have mercy – we sang God is in control, we preached God is in control – we shouted God is in control. And we take no responsibility for the ails all around us. No wonder we lose so many and the Holy Spirit and God wants to orchestrate by His Word from our lips, from our heart and mind.

relies on our prayers, invitation, rescue calls and such the like. God had given dominion of this earth to mankind. Genesis 1:27, 5:1 Mankind was made in the image and likeness of God. And dominion and care of this earth was put in the hands of mankind.
