GOD’S JUDGMENT IS IRREVERSIBLE details logo Open Heavens - Tuesday, January 14, 2014
by Pastor E.A Adeboye

God is the supreme Sovereign. His dictates are unquestionable. In Genesis 1:1-4, with the whole earth full of darkness and everything being empty, He said: “Let there be light”, and there was light and not darkness. He did not say He wanted a vote on whether to have darkness or light. He merely dictated it. I pray that He would dictate light into your life in the Name of Jesus Christ. Our God just decides what He wants to do and He does it, according to Psalm 33:11:
“The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations.”
Once He has decided on something, it is a settled matter. Each time I think of the sovereignty of God, and His prerogative to decide what to do, it frightens me. When you read Romans 9:17 and you are told that God created Pharaoh for destruction; you are bound to be frightened. He was made to become a great king so as to be drowned in the Red Sea for people to acknowledge the greatness of God. I thank God that He did not make me like Pharaoh. When you read Job 21:29-30, you will always thank God for the salvation of your soul.

God told Samuel to stop mourning over King Saul because He had already rejected him (1 Samuel 16:1). He told Samuel to fill his horn with oil and anoint one of the sons of Jesse as king. When Samuel got to Bethlehem, he called Jesse and his sons to the sacrifice. When Jesse started bringing out his sons, it was Eliab that came out first. He was such a tall and big man that when Samuel saw him, he thought he was the chosen one. God told him that he had already rejected Eliab. He said man looks at the surface but God looks at the heart. God’s judgment before Samuel got to Jesse’s house was that David must be king to replace King Saul; hence, He had rejected Eliab. I pray that God will never reject you. Another person rejected of God is Ephraim. God gave him the blessing that would have gone to his brother Manasseh. But after he prospered, he forgot God. He joined himself with idols. God said in Hosea 4:17:
“Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.”
Later in Hosea 5:9, God said:
“Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke: among the tribes of Israel have I made known that which shall surely be.”
It was a final judgment. I pray once again, you will not be rejected by God in Jesus’ Name.

And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.
1 Samuel 16:1

Prayer point:

Thanksgiving to God, especially for gifts and blessings received, is required and expected. God abhors ungrateful people. God expects Christians to give thanks in all circumstances they are confronted with. In 1 Thessalonians 5:18, Apostle Paul wrote:
