Here are some “Cannots” adapted from F.E. Marsh’s 1000 Bible Study Outlines1. They are from readings numbered 84-86.

THINGS the sinner cannot do.

  1. Cannot reverse what God does. “I cannot go beyond the Word of the Lord” (Numbers 22:18).
  2. Cannot find God by Himself. “I cannot perceive Him” (Job 23:8,9).
  3. Cannot supply what is lacking. “What is crooked cannot be made straight” (Ecclesiastes 1:15).
  4. Cannot please God (Romans 8:8).
  5. Cannot see or enter the Kingdom of God (John 3:3,5).
  6. Cannot be where Christ is. “Whither I go ye cannot
    come” (John 8:21-22,43).
  7. Cannot pass the gulf which divides the saved from the
    unsaved in the next life (Luke 16:26).

“Cannots” in John’s Gospel.

  1. The natural man “cannot see” or “enter the Kingdom of
    ” (John 3:3,5).
  2. The sinner “cannot come” or “go” where Christ is, as
    long as he is unsaved (John 7:34,36; 8:21,22).
  3. The unregenerate “cannot hear” Christ’s Word (John 8:43).
  4. The “Scripture cannot be broken” (John 10:35).
  5. The world “cannot receive” the Holy Spirit (John 14:17).
  6. The believer “cannot bear fruit” of himself (John 15:4).
  7. Conditions often limit Christ’s revelation to us, so He has
    said, “Ye cannot bear them now” (John 16:12).

Some Things God Cannot Do.

  1. He cannot break His Word. “Scripture cannot be
    broken” (John 10:35).
  2. “God cannot lie” (Titus 1:2).
  3. “God cannot deny Himself” (2 Timothy 2:13).
  4. “God cannot be tempted of evil” (James 1:13).
