Numbers 11:33-34 – 31 (NIV) Now a wind went out from the LORD and drove quail in from the sea. It scattered them up to two cubits[b] deep all around the camp, as far as a day’s walk in any direction. 32 All that day and night and all the next day the people went out and gathered quail. No one gathered less than ten homers.[c] Then they spread them out all around the camp. 33 But while the meat was still between their teeth and before it could be consumed, the anger of the LORD burned against the people, and he struck them with a severe plague. 34 Therefore the place was named Kibroth Hattaavah,[d] because there they buried the people who had craved other food.

 

“This is not what I wanted!”
- I can preach this sermon!

Dr. Joel J. recentently released an article, how to get the feedback that you don’t want to hear… Many sabatoge the process of resistance by hearing feedback…  Negative commentatives, and critical reviews by collegures… It’s through feedback that we are able to make progress…

You can use feedback to identify your strengthes, idetify your, and become more effective…

The Do’s and Don’t of Feedback….:  When you receive feedback:  Do NOT just focus on the bad stuff..

In order evolve - Pay attention to you strenghths and your weaknesses…

Don’t become angry with the criticizer, they are only doing their job… Take some time out out of your emotional hot button to analyze what was said about you!

Most Christians cannot hand criicism…  If you say something to a Christian that they do not want to hear, they are immediately labeled as a hater…

I’m not sure when the sanctuary decided that we should function as a massage parlor… Feeback is necessarey… It’s how we can become more resolved in our conviction…  The most modern church only want to hear how much they contributed…. That they just showed up for church… You should show up for bibles… People  fight back and say:; |They must not know my schedule…  If they ask you to give more:  You say “They just want your money”     When someone says your outfit is out order:  They come back and say ” The just jealous….

As soon as you are corrected, you need a meeting because you have been criticized….   Some of us don’t want to know how to be corrected….  Most Christians’ throw a temper tantrum when their name is not called or out front… They don’t  undertstand that you have to chasten in order to be stretched…. America acts anal about criticized…. When you give them some feedback to America, the label you as being unpatriotic….     You are considered a socialist when you say we need more education… They call you paranoid when you suggest different criticisms…..  “He is fed up with folks that look down on folks.. He turns the table on us to let us see that you have some things that need to be fixed…

You are not as Holy as you think you are…. Even though you came and waved your hands in church…. If you were perfect, you would be dead… Everyday you wake up is an oppotunity to be better than you were yesterday….   “When God gets through with me, I shall come forth as pure gold… .In order for gold to really shine, it has to be able to stand the fire…  It has to go through the fire… You should be shouting for what you are going too and not what you are going through…. He is using these trials to show you who you can live without…. He has to show you that everything that glitters is not gold…

Chinese proverbs:  The greatest room in the house has room for improvement…

They are complaining because they are tired of eating manna… Asked God to change the menu… What is my responsibility?  It’s my responsibility to tell you that “God is getting ready to give you enough meat”… It is not just for today or tomorrow.. .I am giving you enough to sustain you for the month… .What you are getting ready to get from God today, it’s going to be to heavy… You are getting ready to feed off of what you are going to get today, will hold you for the next 30 days….

The wind starts blowing…. Brace yourself…. It’s a sign that the Holy Spirit is moving….  God made man in his likeness and his image… It’s not until he breathed a breath of life into him and man became a living soul… . The wind began to hover over darkness because he knew that God was getting ready to create something….

Ezekiel said:  Can these dry bones live again?   When the wind starts blowing, houses are not being built, etc…  When you have the Holy Ghost, brace yourself because the wind is getting ready to blow you to the right person…. Nobody expected you to look this good after you been though all you have been through…. I cannot tell you that money and cars are coming…..   I can tell you that the Holy Ghost is coming from heart to heart and breast to breatst…  The Holy Ghost is moving in it’s like Jeremiha… I’t’s like fire shut up in my bones….

Quail was everywhere… .There were 10 homers for everyone… It is equivalent to 60 bushels…. Not just 6, but 60 bushels… I am taking you from under fed to overwhelmed in one day… I’m taking you in one day for barely getting by to flying high… Taking you from thriving to…  You will have more than enough…. God does not want you to live in lack and less than…. You cup is getting ready to run over…. I’m getting ready to bless you… .When you were broke, bused and discugusted, God heard your prayer…. I beleive you are going to praise me when you get more than enough… My season for struggling is about to come to and end… He loves me too much to barely see me get by… I have favor on my life until l am going to bless people around me…

He is going to bless me when I’m coming in , and he is going to bless me when I’m coming out…  Blessing are going to be pressed down, shaking together and running over…. The surplus is on the way!!!

Be seated please……  I hope you felt good about what was just said…. I hope that is blesses you in a small meniscual way…

I don’t recon you will be shouting after this….  Ok now after this moment Quail came in…   It rare that you hear this preached from a pulpit… When God sent the Quail, God sent a plaque…  This was the first time they had to deal with a plague themselves….  People started dyeing in the camp….   The text says as we close out this 40 day season… .”Sometimes an answered prayer will kill you!|

“Sometimes an answered prayer will kill you!   God says, I’m tired of you complaining…  You never ask God, so he is going to give it to  you… .You can get the meal you ordered and it be spoiled when you get it!   You cried about getting married, but you never asked God is this the negro for me…. God said take it, you can have it, but it will kill you!!!

You wanted a baby so bad, and you imagined it in the blanket… You never prepared for puberty…  God said  “You asked for this!”  I wonder how many people are miserable, frustrated and depressed over what they asked for?   Now that they got it, they are trying to figure out how to give it back… This is what you and your little prayer partner touched and agreed on it…

You wanted the house but you don’t want the mortgage… You wanted the car, but you can’t handle the car note…..   The answer I give you, may need some seasoning and maturity…  Don’t think that every time you get a blessing it’s not going to hurt you…

He wiped out the one that were complaining about the food….. He said, you have the nerve to be complaining that I have been feeding you for two years… I gave you what you wanted at the place you were at when I knew you could not handle the harvest…

I wish I had some people in the room that says:  Pastor, please don’t make me raise my hand…. I don’t want to turn to my neighbor… I just want to sit still….  I just wanted one of those cute little Easter sermons… This is not what I signed up for….   I feel like I’m bowling down somebody’s alley…

You wished you give it back with the level of pain and scrutiny that comes with the blessing I asked for…

This is the reason we shout and celebrate on this morning….   “Jesus did not want the cross’  He is in the garden of Gethsemane… Jesus said “”Not my will, but thy will be done.”   His sweat turned into droplets of  blood.. He was all man and all human… When he was feeding the 5,000 and walking on water, and healing the woman with the issue of blood, he was not complaining….  He asked a question, who touched me….  Some of us want the the glory , but not the agony…  You are so wonderfully gifted, but you do not like the attacks it provokes…. Some of you been complaining about what haters say about you…. What you think was going to happen with this level of anointing on your life… You could go through something that could kill you!

What’s up with anointed people that don’t want pain… Anointed people that think they are above conflict…  People that have an assignment that act suprised when people don’t like  you… You don’t think people will mess you up because you are anointed… You have to say like Job…. .For God I live and for God I die..

Father forgive them….  Mother behold thy son…  When Jesus was on the cross, he nevered said ‘Thank You”  It’s hard to give God glory when…  If I had died in my circumstance….

When they crucified my savior, the drove spikes in his hands…  Three days later, he ran into Thomas… Thomas said he was not goint to beleive unless he seen the holes in his hands… On Friday this was not what I wanted…. By Sunday, he said it was worth it…. You should thank God for every mountain he has brought you over… Every trial I had to fight…. If I never had a problem, I would not have known that God could solve them….. If you never had a problem, how do you know that God can work it out?

This is not where I seen myself in this season… .What the enemy meant for evil God meant for good… .Say Neighbor, confuse the enemy… When  you don’t like what’s happening… .Praise him!!!!  Weeping may endure for a night, but Joy is coming in the morning…

Say neighbor, the enemy almost got me last week… .I almost got depressed but I started saying I got joy and joy unspeakable… This joy that I have the world did not give it to me and the world cannot take it away!!

I need you to lift up your hands right where you are…. You did not want to be laid off or bad news from your doctor…. You did not want your child to make that bad decision….   This is not where you want to live or the income you want… .God says to lift your hands and think about what he is doing for you in the desert….  Praise about what you use to complain about!!

Praise about, what  you use to complain about… .Give God glory like you have a reason!!!

As your hands are lifted  I want to pray over  you…. Lord in the name of Jesus, I pray you only give them what won’t kill them….  God if they don’t appreciate it, don’t manfest it… God as our hands our lifted, we are open for your feedback… Whatever you say about us we are going to use it to mature and develpp… People of God that are thankful that they are still being fed in the desert…

If you are thankful that God is still feeding you while you are still in the desert… Do y ou know how many people have filed bankruptcy and have been laid off their jobs but are still being fed… Do you know how many educated people are living in shelters and in their cars, but they are still grateful because God is still taking care of them in the desert…

What do you need to be doing to be a better Father, Mother, Believer/   What areas need to be worked on?   It’s amazing that we can criticize other people, but we cannot see the beam in our own eyes…. You are not going to resurrect if you don’t see your own faults… . Sometimes, God sends a critic… God sends an evaluator to help you re-examine your life to see how you can be living better….

There should be yellow tape everywhere because this should be a constructions site to become developed…

Thank God for everything that was negatively said about you… They don’t even undertstand that hateration was my motiviation… Alll I needed you to do was to tell me what I could NOT do!

I need you to get saved, and I am going to tell you what you don’t want to hear.. .You are a mess, and your life is a wreck… You have been sabotaging your own sucess… .The only way you are going to get better is that you realize that God yet died for me while I was yet a sinner…. . Something has got to be removed to get to that level…  God is knocking some things down to get you to a level…   If you know that God brought you down to bring you back up!!!

I’m believing that God is gettign ready to multiply this ministry….. .I am going to give to you not to sustain you for the day but for the month… When God sent the Quail, the did not kill the people that had the right attitude…  He answered the prayer of the poepel who did not complain…. They ate the complainers food… God is going to drop a blessing into your lap….. You are getting ready to get somebody else miracle and blessing because the other person does not have the right attitude to receive the blessing….

I dare you to complain…. You better not complain….    Ask them have they giving their life to God?

“I wish somebody’s soul would catch on fire and burn with Holy Ghost!!!”
