THE GREATNESS OF THE WORK OF GOD (6 of 6)
Jesse M. Hendley
Making God Tired
The next sin was making God tired by words. Someone
will say, laughing at that, "You can't make God
tired." Well here's what He said in verse 17, "Ye have
wearied the Lord with your words." We must be careful
what we say, friends, God is listening. Study what God
has to say. It's all through this Book of Malachi. God

they see the immorality on the television screen and
in the movies. They see immorality being glorified,
and it seems God sits up there and doesn't care. You'd
better believe He cares. And the moment is coming when
He's going to clean up this world, friends, and when
He hits, it's a blow. You talk about a ...
