God’s Special Effects — Part V

Someone on Facebook said, “I don’t think God cares about who wins the Super Bowl.” I knew that wasn’t exactly true. God does a lot of things we don’t understand. He cares for everything that concerns his creation, which is us. Man is made in the image of God. #GodsSpecialEffects #SpiritualGifts #SuperBowl2018

Amos 3:7 says, “For the Lord GOD does nothing without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets.” ESV Why does God reveal what He’s about to do to humans? There are examples in the Bible. Abraham, Moses, and Jonah are just three. In two of those cases, God changed his mind. God doesn’t change his nature or who he is, but he can change his mind. I’m glad for that. He’s all about mercy, kindness, and love. What does that have to do with the Super Bowl?

I felt the Lord tell me, “The Eagles will go to the Super Bowl, but they won’t win. It will be as last time (in 2005). People will say, ‘Nick Foles is no Carson Wentz.’” Then, I felt like He said, “They’ll lose this time, but they’ll go back soon, and they’ll win.” I was not happy to hear that. I didn’t want that to be true.

If I was wrong, and the Eagles won, would that mean God changed his mind? Doesn’t the Bible say that God never changes. What that actually means is that the nature of God, the attributes, who God is—doesn’t change.

But He does change his mind about things. There are many instances in the Bible where God changed his mind about something. Moses, interceding for the Children of Israel—numerous times God changed his mind. When God called Jonah to preach to Ninevah—when the whole city repented, God relented and didn’t destroy them.

I think God was trying to teach me another level of faith and intercession. He can use anything to teach us. For me, it was NFL. Hearing from him, then praying and believing, asking for something significant.

I’m only sharing all this because I think I’m learning something. At least, I hope I am. Our prayers, even about what we would think to be insignificant things, are still important to God. And to a person with a prophetic gift, the more I hear from God, the more I want to make sure what I heard was from God, and not something I made up from my own soul.

And the Eagles Super Bowl win does have great prophetic significance. I’ll finish this up next week, by explaining the prophetic significance, and what God has been doing with their win. #GodsSpecialEffects #SpiritualGifts #SuperBowl2018

Cracked-Pot

We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; let your light shine through your cracked pot. Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in and comes out.
