With what God is nothing in our world is back from God's plans for future law. Set up for you celebrating faithfulness. This is the alternative Dr. Tony Evans modern speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the alternative, even when the consequences of your mistakes seem irreversible, but still not time to give up hope. But it may be time to give up something else that Dr. Evans will tell us what it is. In today's lesson. Let's join them like puzzles have a puzzle we see the true intentions of this possible come together to address the issue of irreversible consequences is servant just instructed name and how to be healed.

Seven down seven times, comes up, totally healed terms and close so go well dollars million dollars because you gave me the secret to I'm going to make you a millionaire.

16 terms and I can take your money. I can't take a close is not about that and he turns down the money you got to be well dollars. You will turn it down so for me to catch up what you got your students call the prophets. We got to get through school and some cow seminar, students, and so will some from some of the close. The Bible calls it the covetousness Elijah has scoping out. This is what Elijah tells therefore verse 27 the name and shall cling to you and to your descendents forever. So we went out of his presence on his white as snow consequences of his decision. One personal curse. Personally, leprosy was where the skin became white as the all kind of breakouts on it and it was terrible and reversible. All we can do for the visa right now is feel sorry for the boy because even an incurable, irreversible, unfixable, undeniable mass because of the sin. Let's fast-forward to chapter 8 we are told in those first chapter 8 that this will miss you. Mike's son was raised from the dead by Elisha in the first chapter 8 using the phrase seven years, seven years and seven of the number of completion.

The woman is first meets Elijah and get the miracle of the writing of her son. Later she comes to the king what another piece of the puzzle a year while he is talking to the king. The king said some of the great things Elijah did one thing that was back. I was asleep You came in the sun came back to life as one of the things he did while he's talking to the team about the lady. The lady comes in coincidence law chance none of those Christian words you cannot have a sovereign God who oversees Providence and Havelock cannot have both.

Simpson, no such thing as luck Providence gun ranges is things that you wonder how did that happen right now. So she shows up is talking about her when I can put this puzzle together. I got a leper who appears normal to be a leper. I got a woman, I got a prophet for these pieces hook up these pieces come together. How is he talking to the king like nothing is wrong woman show up while he's talking about a woman. Why does this seven year gap show up seven first three now there were four leprous men at the entrance of the gate and they said to one another. Why do we see until we die. Nothing was real hopeless situation. We just wait that if we say we will enter the city, then the famine is in the city and we will die.

So we go to their so we were down there but if we sit here we we are dead men regardless. Now therefore physical die anyway. While we go to the camp of Aramaeans if they spare us, and we live if they kill us. We don't die anyway against Israel and Bill Gibson who they may kill us but we don't die anyway. So when a Catch-22 that's unfixable.

Sodium twilight may go to the camp of the campus food is the enemy of Israel to keep him from from Israel.

Verse six for the Lord caused the Army of the means to hear a sound of chariots and a sound of horses, even the sound of a great army so they said to one another, behold, the king of Israel has hired against the kings of the Hittites and kings of the Egyptians to come against us. Therefore, they arose and fled in the twilight. Stay with me.

They said we stuck with you if we go that has no food.

The only food is within enemy army so we might as well take a chance that might kill us take a chance when they took a chance. They discovered God had already gotten rid of the problem. If they were to stay outside and do nothing they would've never discovered what God had already done already scan the Army so that they fled and when they live all the stuff because we leprous come. Verse eight into the tent and they ate and drank and carried from their silver and gold and close and went and they returned and entered another and carried from there also and went and hit them. This is called the lottery they spoke the model on the how lucky can you get Weidman verse nine they said to one another. Stay with me. We are not doing right this day is a day of good news, but we are keeping silent. If we wait until morning life punishment will overtake us. Now therefore, let us go tell the king's counsel okay to eat the food and drinking juice in the optics they have to get to go get the close they go Hotmail what I'm saying women been there done that didn't stuff hot stuff misusing stuff and he says, and we do this sometimes go find out because then there done so instead they change their minds. Everyone went got here. Talk that which was not utilized to him gently placed him in time for you to have silver gold close that the other is wrong that you wanted it is wrong that you wanted is that is not time when you cannot get something God is not given you is not because it's not long if not, no time when you have to be illegitimate to get that made you run into maybe a content problem but not mentally a timing issue because when the Bible says God gives something he gives no sorrow with it. You gotta be manipulating to make it happen what you have done is that you would misuse the time Dr. Evans will continue the story and let us in on a surprising twist when he returns. In a moment.

Tony Donnelly just before thanks all the stuff let's get this mistake this was remembers and says to the other three been done when I'm telling you is that these four leprous doggies and his sons go back and so will your descendents.

You got a connection which and somebody's got to explain in the king's court would no issues and contagious, and how does this fall characters between Elisha the woman in this central event, the famine.

So that is now in the king's court is comparing structure what Scripture written that the names are not given is because it let me know. Over and over again in chapter 8 7777 years, seven years the time of completion of another word for its called retest all retest is when God creates the exact same situation to situation to it to see whether you learned your lesson called retest you know the one thing I love been schooled about retest that many of the teams would give me another chance. If you are ever advisable situation you God for all retest lot give me another opportunity to the exam. Then it is an opportunity notice they couldn't set the gate Feeling sorry for themselves, not get any better. This is the way it should done it, but they came to the place where they said I don't want to go out like this.

I don't want to die.never having tried God determines whether there's retest what the retest is but I'm sure, take the risk to find out those Aramaeans may kill us but we don't take the risk. And when they took the risk they found out God had already gone before them. So if you're just going staysail. Stay where you are and accept things as you will just double what God already set up for you. Retest new opportunity to hear this phrase is raised, was that he wants what to do with what God can do. If you way so I got up and move that leprosy and they discovered God already made a move. They also like to finish the test until you decide you want to go out like this you don't know what God will do, find out if you go do something I make beautiful feeling I may be situations get better but I'm at least going to find out if you don't finish the test, to go to church serve saying all that's irrelevant because of you got leprosy only the supernatural can.

So why not stop if you refuse to pass the exam and God will test and retest the retest again retest retest until you get the message till I get the message to we get the message. One final piece while Elijah prophesies up in the seven years that the drugs get ready but the office of the king says that angle That is happening with this drug micro committee and like you, preacher solely lies you tell the child does everything look not only will come to an end. You will see, but you're not will benefit from now look at the end of chapter 7 verse 17 now the king appointed the ward officer on whose clearance he lean to have charge of the gate but the people trampled on him at the gate and he died just as the man of God. It said, who spoke with the king came down to him. Verse 20 and it happened to him for the people trampled on him at the gate and he died three times and once We get about this world officer dying at the gate because he didn't believe what the prophet said why we got three times the information center for the king, God allows it not only known that Percy opportunity that you thought could be your life in your world and in your future. What I'm trying to tell you is that God is the God of retesting with what you want, what do we want, but you at least have to take the risk to find out if he is a God of retesting in the Bible is full of retest. Retest Moses.

When Moses about the motor but yet he got a retest of the burning bush and then he got the lead shape to develop his conduct before the got call back in the service that will let my people go.

Abraham got a retest Abraham it's concocted up a way of the flesh to give birth to Ishmael's daughter said to operate outside of my will is not my plan. Years later, they gave him a retest that I was born in the nation of Israel and the promises of God realized Jonah got a retest with the job book left when away from the will of God.

God sent the mammogram swallowed them up to Joppa later changes the decision he made the changes not really. Did you bring a revival only now before the king.

She said no, that will massively but then he says girlfriend if you do it, God will raise up somebody out. She went in the plan and set it up parish.

She passed the retest and save the people of God.

I got a retest only Jesus that may three times the law. At the end of John, Jesus is called five Jesus said, you still love me and everybody else is going that way noble. Jesus said now you pass the test and he opened up so God is a God of retest retest. Once a new opportunity. Once God to do something fresh and new life and give God the glory retest to create new if you're one of those somebody's Dr. Evans was talking about it with us back in a moment with a prayer of encouragement just for you if you want to do some deeper study on what it means to turn your life in a whole new direction.

That's the kind Dr. Evans will deal with on Monday when he talks about reversing generational consequences. Right now he's back to finish up our time together for today I want to take a moment and pray for those who are struggling right now this is going through difficult times and God's special grace, mercy will comfort in light of the challenges you face. Let's pray father right now want to pray for my brothers and sisters were hurting in some way right now going through something in their personal life or family life or just struggling with life in general and leave the comfort of God. The provision of God the grace of God the mercy of God to sustain them during this time of trial or difficulty when you comfort them with comfort that blows the mind, will you show that grace is all sufficient for what ever they are, and for what ever they need and maybe encouragement that comes from the Holy Spirit ease their pain, lower their stress and give them the ability to get up and keep going until the change comes and we pray that change will come sooner than later that they will experience you and be able to say like Joe they've heard about you with the hearing of the year, but now they sing. We pray this in the name of the risen Christ Jesus.
