Matthew 5:37 GOD’S WORD® Translation (©1995)
Simply say yes or no. Anything more than that comes from the evil one.
With God his yes is yes and his no is no. As dear children we are to be imitators of God. You operate like God if you know it or not. Truth is what makes our heart clean. For something to become truth in our hearts it has to be either yes or no. “Maybe” means its unsettled.
This is a very important context in creatures like us who’s words become reality. (your made in Gods image) God said let there be light and there was light. Time after time we see reality comming into exsistence by God’s word. His yes is yes and his no is no. If God were Mucking about in the world of “maybye” it would mess with the very fabric of reality.
You are a creature in God’s image and you have this same type of operation. You operate the same way.
“Like father like son” “Who says things that are not as though they were.” “He spoke and it appeared”
If you wife says “I love you” and you fully believe it, your faith has mixed with those words and made a “reality” to you. Every thing from then on will be affected by that new reality that you created. It was your faith that did that. It sustains that. If she says “I love you” but you don’t fully believe it then that “maybe” faith mixed with her words creates a reality for you as well and will effect many decisions down the road and possibly lead to disaster. This is the same thing that happens if someone calls you a “winner” or a “loser”. Faith either way will determine your reality. Thats why God tells us to take up a shield of faith. God said you are his poem, his work of art. Believe that and see where it takes you.
We are making reality for ourselves like this thousands of times a day and all of it has effects both here and in eternity. All of Gods reality is based on his words (spirit) mixed with faith.
(my words are spirit and they are life Jesus said) ( the spirit makes alive the flesh profits nothing)
Your faith can believe things that are not (evil) or believe things that are the same as what God believes (good). heavens reality is what God believes. Jesus main message was the kingdom of God is here now. Its faith that makes it so or not so for you. You can not decide or judge either way and enter a state of limbo making you unstable about whatever subject is addressed.
Once again we see how the knowledge of good and evil is disastrous for us. It allows us to believe things as true that God says are not true. Knowing evil makes us able to believe the things God has all ready fixed as not fixed yet.
“Maybye” opens us up for satanic construction in our reality.
These “maybes” are known as lies. They are not God’s “yes” or “no”. Its a reality God does not endorse. For instance When God says “by his stripes you were healed” or “his wounds healed ours” Then thats reality to God. The symptoms or pains you are experiencing are not a reality God endorses. That biblical view is the kingdom of heavens viewpoint and you are free to experience heavens ruling on it when you mix your faith with it.
However when you look at your present symptoms or a set of reasonings and come to the conclusion that “by his stripes you were not healed” then you stay in the satanic version of reality and forgo the conclusions of heaven. You don’t enter into the kingdom of heaven and remain earthbound. You put a greater “weight” or “glory” on the symptoms than you do on what God has said. All of our provition from God is based on OUR giving it “glory” or “weight” Its “according to”
Philippians 4:19 King James Bible
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
The woord glory: http://www.studylight.org/isb/view.cgi?number=1391
is the word Doxa which is defined as
1. opinion, judgment, view
2. opinion, estimate, whether good or bad concerning someone
So your needs are met according to your determination or judgement of God’s word as being either good (truth) or evil (lies)
Once again the knowledge of Good and evil is disastrous for most and we see why God wanted us a species to steer clear of it.
If we judge Gods word as being ‘weightier” we get good. If we put more weight on what present reality tells us we then never even allow the seed of God’s kingdom to be planted. We stay earthbound.
Hebrews 4:6 King James Bible
Seeing therefore it remaineth that some must enter therein, and they to whom it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief:
MATT 9:29 American King James Version
Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it to you.
When you look at the reality around you and say “see Gods word is not true” you get that. When you look at the reality around you and say “thats not true Gods word says its like this” and stick with it, then like a seed planted in the ground it gets going and even though it takes a while it eventually breaks through the earth and is seen by all. (like a seed it sometimes takes time)
Everything is subject to the word of God, but for this short time the word of God is subject to your belief in it. Your the judge. There will come a day when we are all on the same page about reality and the dissenters will be trashed but its not now. God has placed his reality in this garden and will back up all that decide to believe in his version of it. God has no “may bees” buzzing around in his garden.
The satanic world is all about maybe, it can never be anything but maybe.
