When you have answers to all eternal questions they will always come because they are born to ask those questions… You must know how to use what u have consistently. Every time you meet people it’s an opportunity… See it has a platform to touch lives… Invest into people life like never before… Live a life of results and manifestation. Your investment in God’s Kingdom is what God sees as wealth… Give all that you have out for the kingdom. Know how to use the resources that you have and the one that god has brought towards you when you meet them… The impact starts from where you are. Make up our mind that u want to get everyone around you saved… It is expedient that you manifest who you truly are now why wait when all those around you could benefit something of a life time from u who they call their friend. So many of us are hiding who we are from our friends and relative so as for them not to talk… We are ashamed of the gospel when we have heard Paul says that we shouldn’t be ashamed of the Gospel for it’s the power of God towards those that believe or salvation… As a Christian you do not have an ambition because the life u now live is not yours2cor5:17 says that we are ambassadors/representative of Christ.
I charge you that from now “You shouldn’t hide who God has made u to be any more, but come out and show forth who I have made u to be for all around u to see and the whole world at large”….
Some people brought to Him a paralyzed man on a mat. Seeing their faith, Jesus said to the paralyzed man, “Be encouraged, My child! Your sins are forgiven.”
Matthew 9:2, NLT
Your Sins Are Forgiven!
Many of us are familiar with the Gospel account of how four good friends, undeterred by the crowds blocking their way, broke through the roof of the house Jesus was in and lowered their paralyzed friend on his mat, right in front of Jesus.
When Jesus saw the sick man, He said, “Be encouraged, My child! Your sins are forgiven.” These bold, gracious words scandalized some legalistic scribes there, but they penetrated and restored the soul of the poor paralytic. For years, he had probably believed that he was paralyzed because of his sins. Jesus then said to the man, “Stand up, pick up your mat, and go home!” (Matthew 9:6). And the paralytic man leaped to his feet!
I want you to pay attention to this: Before the man could receive healing from the Lord, he needed to be assured that his sins were forgiven. Why? Because receiving becomes easy when you know and believe that you’ve been forgiven of your sins and are free to enjoy all the good that God has for you!
Beloved, know that your sins are forgiven because you believe in Jesus. Begin to thank the Lord for His grace. Rejoice in the fact that you are completely forgiven and receive the healing and provision you need from Him!
THE PURITY OF THE WORD OF GOD
So many Christian books are in stores, on desks, in spiritual libraries and on book stands the world over. They come in different volumes, parts and languages as inspirational tapes, messages, music, movies and write-ups. We now even have easier access to spiritual information than ever before and so we are given the opportunity to view God with more understanding. There are also diverse translations of the Bible. Men also have mentors, pastors, God-fathers and mothers as well as spiritual role models.
This is amazing
But, the truth is “once morality is removed, authenticity becomes close to impossible.” This means that once knowledge is no longer first hand, it gradually becomes diluted. As children of God and indeed scholars of the Bible, we must also be aware that the original written text of Christ is the Holy Bible which has the truth of God’s words and ways first hand. The purity of God’s word is best gotten if we discover God and his truth by ourselves; that is by searching scriptures OURSELVES and confirming everything we hear and are taught. We too school consistently journey the scriptures ourselves and deliberately hoping to also have the truth given to us.
Revelation therefore is the insight, the light and exposure we get by the explicit explanation of spiritual issues and mysteries to our spirit man via the Holy Spirit. With revelation on any area of the Word, we can receive God’s word first hand.
Scriptures say “we are the custodians of the mysteries of the kingdom”, and these mysteries can only be gotten pure and raw by revelations of the Holy Spirit when we study his word.
Don’t just go for the already refined gold of the word of God ALONE which has already been drawn from the earth, purified and made into rings, earrings and so on but go for the raw, dirty, natural state of the word. Such that when it enters your hart and indeed your spirit, it can be carefully uncovered and molded into whatever shape, size, and form the Holy Spirit wants in you.
By this, you discover that you have and can give answers to many things and so can help many persons in this world because the raw material dwells richly on your inside not just a finished product.
THE SPEAKING FAITH
Proverbs 18v21: Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Often times in life people destroy their life, their destiny, their family even the life of their partner or child with their own mouth, everything or person around them they refer to as useless or stupid and automatically they’ve rendered themselves equally useless (as they are surrounded by useless and stupid people). How can you call your partner a fool or useless person and he/she won’t become useless and make foolish decisions that will affect both of you?
All this happens because people don’t understand what power their words carry, instead of destroying your life with your mouth, you can build it; So why not build it, you can mould your life with the words you utter.
Faith as we know is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb 11:1). Faith is that spiritual force that opens humanity to a world of unlimited possibilities. Every situation is reversible by faith, no matter how irreversible it may appear.
Now your words ‘filled with power’ combined with your faith gives you an explosion of supernatural breakthroughs in life. How far your mouth goes, is how far your life goes, so also how far your eyes can see is how far you will get to in life. Start speaking positive things to yourself and people around you.
Finally to get faith you need to spend time studying the word of God (bible) the amount and quality of time you spend on the word is equal to the level of Rhema you would acquire which in turns your faith on! Faith is not quoting God’s word to claim the promise because the promise is earned, rather faith is putting God’s word to work.
In conclusion you should:
• Study your bible.
• Expect whatsoever you have spoken (be eager to receive it)
• See yourself already living in the realization of it (what you see by faith is what you get)
• Give thanks to God for it.
• One important thing is to work out your faith. James 2v18: But someone will say, “One person has faith, another has actions.” My answer is, “Show
me how anyone can have faith without actions. I will show you my faith by my actions.”
Don’t just say to yourself I have faith and then sit back and do nothing, make sure you exercise your faith!
Most importantly before you start speaking through faith you need to make sure your connection with Jesus Christ is not broken, Hebrews 12v2 we learnt that Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. Even if you’ve backslidden for so long and you feel all hope is lost, please there is nothing that God cannot do (Luk 1:37) give your life to Christ and connect back with him and start speaking positive by faith into every situation whatsoever.
Jesus said: I am the vine, and you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will bear much fruit; for you can do nothing without me. Those who do not remain in me are thrown out like a branch and dry up; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, where they are burned. If you remain in me and my words remain in you, then you will ask for anything you wish, and you shall have it. (John 15:5-7). A life without Jesus Christ is a life filled with frustration and oppression, and as we have read in the above scripture when we are connected to Jesus we shall be fruitful and whatsoever we ask of God shall be given us.
Say This Prayer: Dear Lord, I’m sorry for all I’ve done that has not been your will for my life, please lord forgive me my sins and wash me with the blood of Jesus, I receive grace to walk in your will, I confess Jesus as my lord and savior, who died for me and on the third day rose again that I may be justified, right now, I believe I’m forgiven, I’m saved, I’m justified and I’m born again thank you lord. Amen.
You don’t need to feel the connection or have goose bumps to know you’ve been saved, the minute you said the prayer your connection with God was established. But be sure to pray and read your bible regularly to keep connected. GLORY!!!
Remember the SPEAKING FAITH IS THE WINING FAITH….
God bless you…..
BEING SPECIFIC IN YOUR PLACE OF PRAYER
© One time I arrived a general prayer meeting, got in the Spirit and started blasting in tongues. After about 5 minutes of doing so, I knew the Holy Spirit was just in front of me staring at me blankly. When I knew he was just watching me, I stopped and asked Him what I was doing wrong, he just asked “Open, what are doing”. Confused I replied “praying now”, He stared on then I asked what have I had done wrong. He asked me that if I was talking with Papa or Pastor Chris about something I wanted, would I just bash into his office and start spraying our familiar language all over place. Of course, I can’t. Then, the Lord said something particular, “I am not a general God but a God of specifics. What do you want and I’ll give it to you”.
© When you go for prayer sessions, meetings walks and all, how do you go about making your request know unto God and calling forth what you want?
© Jesus people, our God wants us to say exactly what we want in our place of prayer. Not “God, please bless me, bless my dad and mom, bless my aunty”. He is saying, what exactly you want.
© Now if you are sometimes like me, who sometimes don’t know exactly what you want, then commune with the Spirit on what exactly the vagueness is about. Rom 8:26 “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groaning which cannot be uttered”.
© The place of prayer is more than a place to make our request known but also a place of direction and instruction.
© Take your notepad and pen to your prayer sessions, pen down what and what steps the Lord wants you to take in reaching the answer to your prayer
