YOUR WORDS CAN KILL YOU OR GIVE YOU LIFE!
One thing I have found out that is people don’t like this positive confession stuff. I finally figured out why that is. They try it out for a few days and it doesn’t work and because they didn’t get the results they wanted they usually become jaded against it.
Let me take that on and tell you what you did wrong. You went out for a sprint instead of realizing this is a cross-country or marathon. You wanted instant results and you didn’t get them so you quit. This isn’t a short-term diet but a life-style change. If you would have kept going you could have reaped the rewards. I am saying that in love!
Is seems like as Christians we get this training with for instance becoming a surgeon or a professional athlete or in any trade of profession. You have to learn the ropes and you get better. But in the Spiritual things we are like the McDonalds drive-thru. It took over five minutes; I am so out of here.
So you must change your way of looking at things Spiritually and realize you are a long-haul trucker not a speed boat and you will get the results like Peter and Paul got. Words do matter. When you say whatever you want or feel like all the time and then try to discipline your heart and tongue in a desperate situation; guess what it’s not going to work.
This is a Revelation that God gave me on August 8th, 2018: (Point # 1)
1. WORDS ARE THE VEHICLE THAT FAITH AND UNBELIEF TRAVEL THROUGH.
9 because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
· Your Words reflect your heart
· And your heart reflects your understanding of the Word of God
*******So again it does matter what you say!!!
2. THE POWER OF THE TONGUE (This is what you Speak)
Proverbs 18:21 (HCSB)
21 Life and death are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.
You have the choice for two outcomes and only two
You speak LIFE or you speak DEATH by WHAT YOU SAY!!!
3. There is an old Bing Crosby Song that illustrates the Process of change
(Now I’ve only heard it once so I am going try to sing it; so bear with me.
· You’ve got to Accentuate the Positive;
· Eliminate the Negative;
· and Don’t Mess around with Mr. In-Between
This song pretty much sums up what kind of speech we should have!
4. WORDS AND ACTIONS:
· Are your words-FAITH FILLED WORDS ONLY
· OR ARE THEY NEGATIVE OR DOUBLE-MINDED (SOMETIMES FAITH-FILLED AND SOMETIMES NOT)
· AND DO YOUR ACTIONS MATCH YOUR WORDS OR NOT
James 1:6-8 (ESV)
6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind.
7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord;
8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
People will speak out of both sides of their mouth. They will say that you should have a positive confession but if you actually expect something to happen many will think you are off your rocker. Jesus spoke to a fig tree. He said to SPEAK TO THE MOUNTAIN not to PRAY TO HIM ABOUT THE MOUTAIN. We have been given his authority.
5. DO NOT THROW THE AUTHORITY GOD GAVE YOU BACK TO HIM OR YOU WILL BE IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE.
What do I mean by that. God can’t help you and you can’t help you because you have violated the very instructions God gave you.
You didn’t take your authority In the name of Jesus and use it. You just defaulted to this God you do it. He won’t do it that way. He means what he says folks. He won’t do it for you and you can’t do it without him. He will back up the authority he gave you with power.
Mark 16:14-20 (ESV)
14 Afterward he appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at table, and he rebuked them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who saw him after he had risen.
15 And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.
16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues;
18 they will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
19 So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.
20 And they went out and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by accompanying signs.
6. Words can move a mountain if they are FAITH-FILLED WORDS
Mark 11:22-24 (ESV)
22 And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God.
23 Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain,
‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.
24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
7. Is Divine Healing a Cookie Cutter or Inventing the Wheel each time???
This one always makes people mad. Why? Because you never know what God’s gonna do? Maybe God wants you sick to teach you a lesson or give you compassion for others? Maybe sometimes God heals and sometimes he doesn’t?
Let me answer all those questions! WRONG!!! WRONG!!! WRONG!!! That is what I call excuse theology. I challenge anyone to find those conclusions in the New Testament. They are not there. We come up with these things because we are powerless only because we do not understand Divine Healing. I am here to protect God’s integrity and defend and promote and teach what the Bible says about Divine Healing. Shouldn’t we be able to heal the sick?
We have no problem thinking that electricity is a law but when it comes to DH we think it’s reinvent the wheel each time (no wonder we are getting the results we are getting) It is a cookie cutter but you gotta know how to cut the cookie first
8. When you Speak the does the Devil tremble and move or does he say, “who are you.”???
Acts 19:11-16 (ESV)
11 And God was doing extraordinary miracles by the hands of Paul,
12 so that even handkerchiefs or aprons that had touched his skin were carried away to the sick, and their diseases left them and the evil spirits came out of them.
13 Then some of the itinerant Jewish exorcists undertook to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, “I adjure you by the Jesus whom Paul proclaims.”
14 Seven sons of a Jewish high priest named Sceva were doing this.
15 But the evil spirit answered them, “Jesus I know, and Paul I recognize, but who are you?”
16 And the man in whom was the evil spirit leaped on them, mastered all of them and overpowered them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.
When you say in the name of Jesus the devil should turn tail and run and if you tell him to jump he should ask how high. But this only happens if you have built up your relationship with the Lord and stored his Word in you heart and when it comes out of your mouth it’s look out devil instead of him saying who do you think you are!
Next Week I will teach you how to build momentum. That is so important. You can heal the sick! Paul and Peter did it now it times for Jenny and Mike who are listening to me teach to do the same. Think how this would meet the needs that are in our world. Think how this would demonstrate to people that God is real. They would still have to believe but would it be an awesome sign to open their heart’s door.
