344 Whoever Measures God With Notions Resists Him

Verse 1

Your opposition to God

and obstruction of the Spirit’s work

is because of your notions

and inborn arrogance.

It’s not because God’s work is wrong,

but because you’re disobedient.

Verse 2

Some men believe in God and still

can’t say where man came from.

Still these men dare to judge

the Holy Spirit’s work,

lecturing apostles

who have the Spirit’s new work.

Pre-chorus

Their humanity is low,

no sense remains in them.

Won’t they be cast out by God’s work

and meet the fires of hell?

They don’t know God’s work,

but criticize it still, trying to instruct Him.

How can these men ever know God?

Chorus

If your notions stay unchanged,

they’ll always be against God.

You’ll always be apart and not

compatible with Him.

Verse 3

Through your old nature and morals,

your humanity and character,

through your notions, you resist God.

The more these degrade,

the more you become God’s enemy.

Verse 4

Those with strong notions

and self-righteous dispositions,

they are even more

the enemies of God incarnate.

Such people are the antichrists.

Chorus

If your notions stay unchanged,

they’ll always be against God.

You’ll always be apart and not

compatible with Him.

Bridge

Man comes to know God through seeking,

experiencing, not criticizing.

The more they know God,

the less they oppose Him.

Chorus

If your notions stay unchanged,

they’ll always be against God.

You’ll always be apart and not

compatible with Him.
