Pastor Michael Todd delivers the 15th message in the final installment of ‘Cuffing Season.’ This week his sermon “Cuffed to Cap,” stressed how lying is capping our purpose. Transformation Church also kicked off Crazy Faith Offering, which is a time where the congregation can give whatever amount God puts on their hearts, and also pray over their desires to see how God will bless their individual situations.

As always listen for yourself and see what stands out, below are a few notes.
- The seed of lie usually multiplies
- What you are trying to avoid by lying in the long run will cost less if you tell the truth
- Lying is a seed that shows back up pressed down, shaken together, and running over
- Lying is the language of Lucifer
- Bad people don’t lie… good people lie and become bad
- Lying takes you further than you wanna go, keeps you longer than you wanna stay, and costs you more than you wanna pay
- To uncuff from cap, you must examine the lies you learned, the lies you let, the lies you live, the lies you love, that don’t love you back
- The most dangerous consequence of lying is becoming comfortable with cap
- Man lies: that’s why there’s grace, He doesn’t: that’s why He’s God
- If He said it, it’s settled
- God can’t cap, so there is no cap
- You’re not giving to a good man, you’re giving to God!
“You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.” (Exodus 20:16)
“Which ones?” he inquired. Jesus replied, “‘You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not give false testimony. (Matthew 19:18)
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38)
God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? (Numbers 23:19)
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. (Ephesians 3:20)
