Assurances that come from Gods jealousy 1 Kings 18:21 21 And Elijah came to all the people, and said, "How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him." But the people answered him not a word. Assurances that come from Gods

the man of Israel into the tent and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her body. So the plague was stopped among the children of Israel. Assurances that come from Gods jealousy Numbers 25:11-12 11 "Phinehas the son

of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, has turned back My wrath from the children of Israel, because he was zealous with My zeal among them, so that I did not consume the children of Israel in My zeal. 12 "Therefore say, 'Behold, I give to him My covenant of peace; Assurances that come from Gods

with fools gladly, since you yourselves are wise! 20 For you put up with it if one brings you into bondage, if one devours you, if one takes from you, if one exalts himself, if one strikes you on the face. Assurances that come from Gods jealousy 1 Corinthians 10:20-22 20 Rather, that

the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons. 21 You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you cannot partake of the Lord's table and of the table of demons. 22 Or do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?

Assurances that come from Gods jealousy Fellowship is the acid test for what we are really putting first. Too many want the name Christian but have full fellowship with the world. (James 4:4-6) Assurances that come from Gods

jealousy James 4:4-6 4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think that the Scripture says in vain, "The Spirit who dwells in us yearns jealously"?

Assurances that come from Gods jealousy 6 But He gives more grace. Therefore He says: "God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble." Assurances that come from Gods jealousy
