Never Enter into Competition with God

Never Enter into Competition with God

This message coming to you this morning,  is a must read. It could save you and some one even your entire family from the wrath of God.



What ever you are, President. Governor billionaire, or other, never get into competition with God. God said ” I am a jealous God”.

“Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;” (Exodus 20:5).

Could you be suffering today because of the iniquity of your fathers?


To be jealous, as God said, is not because of what  any man could become on earth above Him ,  but He does not want anyone to play down on  His sovereignty. This sovereignty, I mean, touches on His divine authority over all creation.  To worship other gods or give His glory to created beings are acts of disrespect to God. Rash speeches without considering that man is nothing is not good at all.

Those who do these are His enemies and He deals with them in great disgrace.

The Lord said :

“I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.” (Isaiah 42 : 8).

In a way is man not a graven image when men worship them. Are all the artefacts which men serve not graven images. They will not take the glory of God. Beware!

And to buttress this, note some current world events among men and women. If some have disregarded God and beat their chest and  say “nothing will happen”, note that  God deals with His enemies at the peak of their pleasure and glory. God is not slack in whatever He said He will do.

We must be extra careful, when we stand here on earth in the presence of God.

Note the following:

1)  Tancredo Neves  (President of Brazil).

During the presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes from his party, not even God will remove him from presidency.

Sure he got the votes, but he got sick a day before the inauguration as president and died.

2) Cazuza ( Bi-sexual Brazilian composer, singer and poet).

During a show in Canecio, ( Rio de Janeiro), while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said, ” God that’s for you”.

He died at 32 of lung cancer in a horrible manner.

3) Marylyn Monroe  (Actress).

She was visited by Billy Graham during the presentation of a show. Billy said ” the Spirit of God has sent him to speak to you.” After hearing what the Preacher had to say she said ” I don’t need your Jesus”. A week later she was found dead in her apartment.

No one is above God.

The children of God at Babel had an issue with God.

Do not wonder why many celebrities are having problems in our time. Let them  begin to worship God and perhaps what they do, sing, or say, might change to bless their lives.

Read the following  about Babel :

11:4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

11:5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

11:6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

11:7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.

11:8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. (Genesis 11:4-7).

There was nothing wrong in building their tower, but there was something wrong with their motive :

Gen 11:4  And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

A tower whose top will touch the heavens, and a name for themselves, were arrogant boasts. You can see how they ended.

In every endeavour it will be  pleasing to  God,  if we add ” If God wills”, and this should come from our hearts,  as a mark of devotion and dependence on God, since we do not know the future.

Man is a creature of time and that time is never in the hands of any man. We must wake up every morning to start or continue  our plans again.

It is great if we recognise that our plans depend on God and we should pursue it putting  God in front  as our leader.

Job said after viewing the emptiness of man :

14:1 Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble.

14:2 He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not.

(Job 14:1-2)

Let us end this so far,  because God’s Word always said  “A word is enough for the wise and he that has ear let him hear”

Don’t because as they say, “He has arrived” or the other way, “I have arrived,”  you begin to spin into the air, disregarding  the power of gravity, which holds that what goes up  will come down. Only by divine intervention will it remain in the air.

PRAYER: Lord I want to obey You. This is my heart resolve. What ever you make me to be, let my life  glorify Your name in speech  and action  in Jesus name Amen. 

Thank you Daddy, for giving me the grace to know who you are  Amen.
