Moses named the place Massah (which means "test") and Meribah (which means "arguing") because the people of Israel argued with Moses and tested the LORD by saying, "Is the LORD here with us or not?" NLT
Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.
Jesus answered him, "It is also written: 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'"
The children of God did tempt their Father at massah and meribah. There question was "is the Lord among us or not?"
I wonder why the same people whom their Father have made them to walk on dry ground by parting the red sea for them. The same father who gave them flesh to eat in the evening and bread to the full in the morning and the same Father who set them free from Egypt and all they can do is ask if the same God is among them because they need water.
Looking at this question you will notice is a very simple question that contains serious faults in it brethren. But the funny thing is that, even today we Gods children still ask question that have this same pattern and meaning. Question like: Can God still do this and that for me? Can i be healed of this so so disesaes or illness? Am now in menopause, can God still give me child? we ask many "CAN" and "IS" questions and we still claim to have the knowledge of God.
Listen brethren one of the best thing the devil knows how to do is tempt his God (Matthew 4:7) but God nature is different listen to what His word says in the book of james 1:13;Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. So, if that nature is still found in us then we really need to get it out angrily and say to the devil that HIS scriptures says; Matthew 19:26
New International Version (NIV)
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Luke 1:37 ESV
For nothing will be impossible with God.”
And Jesus said to him, “‘If you can’! All things are possible for one who believes.”
“I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
IT WILL BE SO INTERESTING TO ADD THIS THAT THE ONLY THING IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD IS FOR MY FATHER TO LIE. Hebrews 6:18; "So that by two unchangeable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have fled for refuge might have strong encouragement to hold fast to the hope set before us".
I PRAY AS YOU BELIEVE GOD FOR SOMETHING NOW IT IS GIVEN UNTO YOU IN JESUS NAME............. REMEMBER, GOD CAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
