It is not hard to do a test and see if something is real or fake. All you have to do is follow the directions and see what happens next. The result will show whether the information you received is true or false, if it works or doesn’t work, if it’s real or fake.
People do this every day. Try a product, a diet, use a GPS, follow a doctor’s instructions, a parent or friend’s advice… But why does man resist so much when it comes to challenging God, when this also comes down to doing what He says and judging by the results?
God makes us the following invitation:
“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this”, says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessings that there will not be room enough to receive it”. Malachi 3.10
It is extremely simple: you do what He advises (bring all the tithes) and see the results (if He pours out blessings without measure or not). Only then will you know if these words are true or false. And, not only can you do this in regards to tithes, but with all the promises of the Most High.
God doesn’t only gives us the right to challenge His Word, but also invites us to do so. He is the most interested in you seeing His Power in action, and become aware of what He does and who He is. And for this to happen, you just need to do for the Most High what you already do for man. How difficult is this?
If you do not have the courage to accept the simple, but decisive, invitation from God, then it’s because of either two things: you are afraid to find out that you’ve believed in the wrong thing all of your life or you already know its true, but prefer to live a lie.
