EVIL REPORT - It is a report of doubt. (A believer has no more business peddling doubt than he
does peddling dope!)
NUMBERS 13:31-33 . . . "We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we. And
they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The
land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the
people that we saw in it are men of a great stature . . . giants. . . and we were in our own sight as grasshop-
pers, and so we were in their sight."
God had already told the children of Israel that He had given them this land flowing with milk and hon-
ey. “But,” they complained, “there are giants in the land, and we are not able to take it!”
The children of Israel confessed what they believed. They believed they couldn’t succeed. Then they
said, “We can’t.” And they received exactly what they said! Israel accepted the majority report —-the evil re-
port—-and said they couldn’t take the land. And Israel got exactly what they said: God did not allow that gen-
era@on to take the land.
Jesus said in Mark 11:23 that you will have what-ever you say.
Confession: I refuse to be a doubt peddler. I refuse to have an evil report!
