Found This Meme: “God Is Not An “I Told You So” Type God. GARBAGE!
Here it is:
I’m sorry….but this meme is just HOGWASH!
How many times have we all circled the SAME issues in our personal lives? If that is not an ‘I told you so‘, just what the hell is? ANYTIME you find yourself saying; “I should have” is the time when you didn’t listen to Gods still small voice in your spirit. “I should have” is the same thing as “I told you so.” It is actually an acknowledgement of God.
What’s wrong with “I told you so” anyway?? I see nothing wrong with someone saying that they’ve been right and you are in the wrong. Fathers and Mothers say “I told you so”. People think that it is wrong to say.
What is so wrong about it?!
1. Proverbs 3:11-12 My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline or be weary of his reproof, for the Lord reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights.
2. Job 5:17 “Behold, blessed is the one whom God reproves; therefore despise not the discipline of the Almighty.
Deuteronomy 8:5-6 Know then in your heart that, as a man disciplines his son, the Lord your God disciplines you. So you shall keep the commandments of the Lord your God by walking in his ways and by fearing him.
Revelation 3:19 Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent.
Discipline of the LORD is not a ‘fun’ thing. It’s not.
I’ve been disciplined many times by the spirit of the LORD.
The children of Israel were told many times to stop sinning. OVER AND OVER… Yet, we sinned anyway and God brought destruction! “I TOLD YOU SO!” People are told in their hearts over and over again to stop sinning and repent. Anytime we hear this, it means: “I TOLD YOU SO!”
You know what the complexity is? People really do not like God. They don’t. They hate that he disciplines us. They hate that he has anger. They want God all bunched up in a box where we put our stuffed animals & fluff bunnies. Well, God gets angry. The whole book of Revelation is about Gods WRATH against an earth that says; “DONT TELL ME SO!” Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy and more is about Gods righteous, HOLY anger.
God is shaking up the world right now, saying ‘I TOLD YOU SO….’ But, we do not listen. We want a sign. We want a Hollywood God who performs for US on a whim. You know what it really is, down deep? WE want to BE God. Just like satan.
God will not be put in a box anymore.
HE TOLD YOU SO.
