God , Who Cannot Lie!
We can actually turn satan’s tactics against him?
You can take the words of a false prophet and use them to receive
blessings! I will prove to you that the words spoken by Balaam
intended as a curse can actually be used by you to ensure that you
receive God’s blessings! We can literally turn satan’s evil
schemes against satan!
Let’s notice the specific words of the prophet Balaam who was
supposed to curse God’s people, “God is not a man, that he should lie;
neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he
not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” (Num
23:19). Notice that the words spoken by Balak, who hired Balaam,
will also come to pass, “And Balak said unto Balaam, What hast thou
done unto me? I took thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou
hast blessed them altogether ! ” (Num 23:11) Ironically, through these
very words recorded in Scripture Balaam has given Christianity a very
powerful tool that we can turn against satan.
Let’s begin with the perspective that it is impossible for God to lie, “In hope
of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie , promised before the world began”
(Titus 1:2). The concept of God’s inability to lie is definitely acknowledged
in the Bible, “in which it was impossible for God to lie (Heb 6:18). Let’s
focus for just for a minute exactly why it is impossible for God to lie. Repeat
after me, “ It is impossible for God to lie! Say it again! There is an implicit
action attributed to God in that statement; God’s implied action is that He
must speak. In other words, if one cannot speak, they cannot lie!
A Lie requires words! Webster’s Dictionary identifies “lie” as, “an assertion of
something known or believed by the speaker to be untrue with intent to deceive.”
So lying requires some form of a voice! God can never lie because whenever He
speaks all the power of Heaven moves to make His word come to pass! This is the
same incredible message that God is teaching to His sons through Jesus, “they shall
ask, it shall be done for them of my Father” (Matt 18:19). Therefore, God who is
the creator of all things did not start the whole concept of lying!
So how did lying get started in the first place? Jesus identified Satan as the first liar, “ he is
a liar, and the father of it (John 8:44). In that passage, God even relates together the sins
of murder and lying. The Bible further teaches that those who have been blinded by Satan

not as God . . . And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God . . . Who changed the
truth of God into a lie! (Notice that these individuals sought to change something that is
“uncorruptible!” Since the change must have taken place in their minds and in their
words; therefore, their words would only have created a false reality! No man can change
God’s glory!) ” (Rom 1:21-25). The Bible teaches that they changed the truth of God into a
lie! Yet, we just read three scriptures from God’s word which claim that God cannot lie;
(1) Num 23:19); (2) Titus 1:2); and (3) Heb 6:18!

what we needed in our
lives.
help us to grow.
Jer 29:11
Jer 6:19
Jer 18:8
As you probably realize these are difficult questions within the Christian faith!
Mankind was commanded not to eat of “the tree of the knowledge of Good and
Evil,” “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it :
for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die ” (Gen 2:17). Did
God know that Adam and Eve would eat of the tree? Was God aware of satan’s
influence? God knew everything, “for I am God, and there is none else; I am God,
and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning (God knew
everything; even the end of all things from the beginning of time) , and from ancient
times the things that are not yet done” (Isa 46:9-10). God knew that mankind would
die through Adam’s fall and that he would lose all that he possessed from the
beginning of the creation, “For as in Adam all die” (1 Cor 15:22). However, God
fashioned restitution through the Messiah, “even so in Christ shall all be made
alive” (1 Cor 15:22). God actually made a way for man to be restored to his original
state, “Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things ,
which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began”
(Acts 3:21). The Messiah provided us with the tools and the method through which
“restitution” can be made. The Greek word for restitution, apokathistemi
pronounced as (ap-ok-ath-is'-tay-mee) which means “to reconstitute (in health,
home or organization).” That difficult six syllable Greek word is used only in this
passage of the Bible. It literally means to restore ( again ) or to set a thing in its
original condition. Acts 3:21 therefore teaches us that Jesus will remain in heaven
until the season of the restitution of all things. However, Paul taught that now is the
time (Paul used the same word as Luke used in Acts 3:21 for “times”) to begin to
“cast off” of the works of the devil, “And that, knowing the time , that now it is high
time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of
darkness , and let us put on the armour of light”(Rom 13:11-12). So the question we
need to ask is, “How do we “cast off the works of darkness?” John teaches, “and
this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith (1 John 5:4). Faith
gives us the victory, but what kind of faith?
The purpose of this Bible Study is not to argue the philosophical questions regarding
the nature of evil and God’s hand in the creation of evil. Neither is the study
intended as the jumping-off point regarding the semantics of the word “evil!”
Stated as simply as possible, this study recognizes that evil does clearly exist in this
world! The goal of this Bible Study is to expound on the Messiah’s solution (the
message from the anointed one) regarding the method we use to “cast off of the

works of darkness!” Through His word, Jesus gave Christians some very specific
instruction regarding the method of overcoming evil. We will go far beyond the
simple scripture which states, “Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with
good” (Rom 12:21). We will essentially introduce and describe actual tangible
observable methods, which if followed, will result in the elimination of any specific
evil in every given circumstance! This is a bold statement; but we have a bold
Messiah Who spoke bold things!
Our Messiah made some bold statements and claims. He taught that we should
actually expect to experience faith-based power through His name. He actually gave
us authority to speak to inanimate objects and assured us that we could change those
things based upon our words! He told us that “Heaven and earth shall pass away,
but my words shall not pass away (Matt 24:35). Jesus spoke of the “God kind” of
faith! He assured His disciples that they possessed the same kind of faith as He!
“And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God . For verily I say unto you,
That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast
into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things
which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say
unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them,
and ye shall have them” (Mark 11:22-24).
As we consider the words spoken by our LORD in the previous passage, realize that
Jesus had cursed a fig tree the day before and the disciples were amazed at seeing
the tree withered, “And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master,
behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. And Jesus answering saith
unto them, Have faith in God” (Mark 11:21-22). Note that Jesus told them, “ Have
faith in God! ” This is an imperative sentence; we call it a command. It is also a
revelatory statement; Jesus revealed to them that He used words mixed with faith
when He spoke the curse upon the tree. Jesus encouraged them to use the same kind
of faith! He wanted them to employ the God kind of faith! Jesus spoke to an
inanimate object and it resulted in an uncommon change after a short period of time.
Jesus did not lie! God cannot lie!
Almost immediately, Jesus transitioned His teaching example regarding faith from
the tree to a mountain. The same kind of faith that produces a small miracle will
also produce a very large one! Jesus’ message was, “What things soever ye desire,
when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” (Mark 11:24).
As emphasized through the fig tree, we certainly do have the ability to obtain
whatsoever things we pray for; however, we must believe that the things that we
speak will actually come to pass! The question is, “Do you really believe that

everything that you say will actually come to pass?” One of the main reasons that
we are not very effective in this area of faith is that we humans unknowingly speak
foolish things out of jest, anger or other emotional responses! In so doing, we speak
idle words that are actually untrue, “every idle word that men shall speak, they shall
give account thereof in the day of judgment” (Matt 12:36). We think it is okay if we
say, “I was just joking.” or “I didn’t mean it.” However, misusing our power of
speech as in these examples only serves to dilute our power of speech! We must
realize that real power comes through our speaking; therefore, we need to draw on
that powerful ability very carefully, “Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to
him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation (Jeshua –
Jesus) of God ” (Ps 50:23). Jesus will actually show-up through our spoken requests
when our speech is properly ordered. The key is that our spirit must be retrained to
believe whatever our words say!
Whenever we speak something that is not true we are in fact harmfully training our
inner spirit through those idle words to ignore our own speech “their words seemed
to them as idle tales, and they believed them not” (Luke 24:11). We have wrongly
trained our spirit to disbelieve our words! This weakens the power placed in our
own spirit! What we do not realize is that the witness of our spirit is essential to the
completed act of faith. It is imperative that we correct this predicament. We need
to train our inner spirit to believe and thus respond to every word that we speak!
Every lie that we speak chips away at having our spirit in total agreement with our
words. Just like the Godhead is in total agreement, so likewise our own three-part
being needs to be in total agreement. When our spirit and soul ( the heart ) are in
total agreement then our body will naturally follow in conformity, “Keep thy heart
with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” (Prov 4:23).
Let’s take the example of sowing a seed for financial breakthrough. We cannot
speak positive words over our seed during an offering, and then go out from the
church and complain about how broke we are! In this situation we would have just
aborted the seed earlier sown! However, it gets worse, through those words, our
spirit would have just been trained to ignore our words because our faith based
words are double minded , “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that
giveth to all men liberally . . . and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith,
nothing wavering . For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the
wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the
Lord . A double minded man is unstable in all his ways” (James 1:5-8). Our faith
must remain single minded and stable. We are to believe what we speak and speak
what we believe & continue to speak it until we see the manifestation of our belief!

God , Who Cannot Lie!
We can actually turn satan’s tactics against him?
Double mindedness renders its victim into a state of weakness! Once in that state
the individual is left unable to speak in faith to drive out powerful illnesses. When
confronted with these situations, even if the person speaks the right words and
quotes the right scriptures, the devil will certainly reply, “You must be kidding!
Who are you to speak to me like that! You don’t even believe that your own words
will drive out this cancer!” Through double mindedness, the devil recognizes that
the words of the individual are meaningless. On the other hand, if we believers train
our spirit to single-mindedly focus its powerful weaponry exactly on what we say,
“nothing doubting” then our spirit responds positively to our words and the God
kind of faith naturally follows!
We should not fail to recognize the absolute need for our hearts to be purified!
Jesus taught that faith will not operate in an atmosphere of unforgiveness,
“Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother
hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be
reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift” (Matt 5:23-24). Jesus
taught that we must purify our hearts when in unforgiveness. We cannot be overtly
involved in unforgiveness and then expect God to answer our prayers, “neither yield
ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves
unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of
righteousness unto God” (Rom 6:13). In order to drive out the darkness using the
instruments of the light, we need to be walking in the light!
There remains one final element that must exist in order to receive manifestations of
the God kind of faith. Jesus taught that when we pray we must “ believe that we
receive” those things that we have prayed for! When we properly do this we shall
have whatsoever things we desire! Let’s look at a concrete example which conveys
the “ believe that we receive” concept! Do you remember the last time that you
won a raffle or the last time that out of the blue you won something? How did you
act immediately when you were informed that you had won the prize? You jumped
and shouted and yelled-out something like, “Praise the Lord!” At that very moment
you were unknowingly performing something akin to the Bible form of “believe that
you receive!” This is the exact kind of response and inner emotion that we need
when we ask God for something in prayer, “Therefore I say unto you, What things
soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have
them” (Mark 11:24). This “believing that we receive” should make us ecstatic or at
the very least completely assured! When we exercise faith in this fashion, then our
words and our spirit and even our emotions come into agreement. At this point God
observes our pure beliefs; He then responds and sends His angels to perform His
Word that we have claimed in our lives!

Real faith takes God at his Word and says, “Lord, you said it in your Word,
therefore, I prayed for it, and I now believe it!” When a believing person arrives at
this attitude, it is a settled deal! Why? The word of God says, “God is not a man,
that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and
shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? ” (Num
23:19). God actually desires to speed up His blessings to his believing people,
“Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to
perform it (Jer 1:12). God is actually looking for people of faith in whom He may
show Himself strong, “For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the
whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect
toward him” (2 Chron 16:9)!
It pleasures God and He seeks people in the earth who will exercise His faith,
“without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe
that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him (Heb 11:6).
God is looking for some one who will mix faith with the word of God! Until we
mix faith with God’s word it will not produce!
The resulting manifestation of our faith is guaranteed when seven fundamental
elements are all working together as identified in the table that follows:
Fundamental Elements of Faith Which Produce
Manifestation
1.
Continually speak only the truth in all the words that proceed from our mouths;
2.
We need to speak our belief from a purified forgiving heart;
3.
We need to ask believing that we receive; and remain “fully persuaded” “And being fully
persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform” (Rom 4:21);
4.
We need to be constantly meditating on our belief (This is self talk or mumbling to yourself
regarding the fact that you fully expect to obtain what you have believed in. Meditation is
focus and the resulting self talk that changes us from the inside – out) ;
5.
We need to be continually speaking about our belief ( not speaking our belief just one time
but rather continuing to water our seed with the words of our mouth, “Let them shout for
joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the
LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant” (Ps 35:27).
“with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations” (Ps 89:1);
6.
We need to be acting in concert with our belief (rejoice means to brighten up or to leap for
joy; “Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause” (Ps 35:27)) ;
7.
Realize that God observes our actions and He sends the angels to fulfill our desires.
There are some who ridicule this God kind of faith! They claim that the one who
speaks about something that does not yet exist is foolish. From their perspective,
the believer is simply not facing reality! However, the skeptic actually is the one

who needs to come to more intimately know the true God, “who quickeneth the
dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were (Rom 4:17).
Let’s face the true reality; who is true and who is the liar? Are you calling those
things which be not as though they were? Are you daily confessing things such as:
bills, be paid; joy, be full; debt, be gone; health, be restored; peace, be on my
family; favor, be on my home; bank account, be overflowing? If you are not calling
things into existence then you are squandering your time and are not taking full
advantage of the power of your words or the authority that Jesus has given to you!
God placed authority in our mouths. In essence, we are actually discovering that we
can tap into Gods form of physical materialization! We are learning to use our
dominion to call things that do not exist into being! We are learning how to build
things using the unseen realm to create things that are seen in our physical world.
The children of Israel spied out the land flowing with milk and honey. However,
when ten of the spies reported, “they brought up an evil report of the land which
they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying . . . And there we saw the
giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as
grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight (Num 13:32-33). There is no way that
the inhabitants of the land could have been worse than the Egyptians! Yet the
people wailed, “And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried ; and the
people wept that night. And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and
against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had
died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness ! And
wherefore hath the LORD brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our
wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into
Egypt?” (Num 14:1-3).
However, notice the conflicting report given by the final two spies, “And Joshua the
son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the
land, rent their clothes: And they spake unto all the company of the children of
Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good
land. If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it
us ; a land which floweth with milk and honey. Only rebel not ye against the LORD,
neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is
departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.” (Num 14:6-9).
The concept that we must observe in the Israelites is that every human automatically
receives the elemental results of the words that they speak! Just like there is a law
of gravity so too there is a spiritual law regarding our words, I call it “ Logogenesis .”
Words always produce natural results whether good or bad! We have just observed

the Israelites who did not believe that their spoken words would actually produce
natural results! Had they lived in our day and time, they would have made fun of
Joshua and Caleb calling them the “Promised Land,” “name it and claim it band!”
Does the Bible really teach a cause and effect relationship as regards words that
humans speak? Let’s observe the book of Proverbs, “Death and life are in the
power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof” (Prov 18:21).
There is definitely power in the spoken word as we observed in the ancient
Israelites, “And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against
Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had
died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness” every
one from that generation ended up dying in the wilderness according to their words!
Only the two spies who gave a faithful report entered the Promised Land. Do you
think the Bible teaches a cause and effect relationship regarding our words?
When we place our words and faith in Jesus’ name we are not just wishing and
hoping! We are not simply trying to make our spoken beliefs materialize! We have
a covenant with the Truthful God who does not lie ! Jesus did not lie to us when
he told us that we have the ability to move mountains! When we believe him we are
essentially telling him, “God we believe you! You are a truthful God!” On the
other hand, when we act in unbelief we are agreeing with satan concerning God’s
character! The unbelieving say through their disbelief, “God is a liar; humans
cannot move mountains with mere words! What we must realize is that Jesus either
went too far in his statement about moving mountains or He is the Master of the
Universe! I believe the latter!
We believers receive what we petition of God! When believers receive and then
praise God they are giving honor to the covenant keeping, truthful God! We were
born to live in praise! An automobile engine will not work outside of an atmosphere
of oil. We likewise must operate in an atmosphere of praise and worship. When we
are not inside the protective environment of praise we are misplaced like a fish out
of water! We were born to live in praise! God made us to give praise to Him,
“Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless
the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine
iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases” (Ps 103:1-3).
There are approximately 7,000 promises identified in the Bible! Find the promise
regarding your personal needs and then get in tune with the following fundamental
elements of faith which produce manifestation:
1.
Continually speak the truth in all the words that exit out of our mouths;
2.
We need to speak our belief from a purified forgiving heart;
3.
We need to ask “believing that we receive;” and remain “fully persuaded,”

God , Who Cannot Lie!
We can actually turn satan’s tactics against him?
4. We need to be constantly meditating on our belief;
5. We need to be continually speaking about our belief;
6. We need to be acting in concert with our belief;
7. Realize that God observes our actions and He sends the angels to fulfill our
desires!
Speak often of the privilege and the right that you have to receive the promises of
God. Then start singing, dancing, and rejoicing over the fact that God’s word is
more sure than the authority of His very Name! God performs His word, “Then said
the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it
(Jer 1:12). God gets pleasure in making his word come to pass, “For I am the
LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass ; it shall be
no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and
will perform it, saith the Lord GOD (Ezek 12:25).
God cannot lie. This is a bedrock truth that we can turn against satan! God will
always make good his word, “ God is not a man, that he should lie ; neither the son
of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he
spoken, and shall he not make it good? (Num 23:19).
Well, what do you think? Is it true that, “if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou
removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done?”
You face a real dilemma; either you believe Jesus or you don’t!
Let us choose to use the very words of Balaam who was satan’s emissary against
satan, “ God is not a man, that he should lie!” (Num 23:19).
