The power of the word of God. It’s awesome! We can learn to overcome by The Word. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God, (Rom 10:17).
It’s so important to read, believe and receive the word of God. We need to spend much time meditating on the scriptures. It’s a great practice to “ pray “ God’s word. That way it gets into your heart.
How To Change Circumstances
Whenever you receive, take and believe the Word of God, something not being comes into being. You can prove how to change circumstances. This is wonderful. Do not say that you are weak, for the more you say that you are weak, the weaker you become, simply because you say that you are weak. However if, by taking the Word, you say, “I am strong,” strength comes into being.
Do not say, “I have no power.” The more you say you have no power, the more powerless you become. However, if you say, “Praise the Lord that I have power through the living Word, Jesus,” you will have power, the power that things not being will come into being through the Word.
If you are afflicted with a certain illness, do not think very much about it, ….
Say, “Through the Word I am a healthy person.” If you say this, health, which had no being, comes into being.
The more you say that you lack wisdom, the less wisdom you have. Nevertheless, it is a lie that you lack wisdom. Do you not have the Word? As long as you have the Word you must declare, “I have wisdom through the Word.” If you claim this, you will have wisdom. We have nothing in ourselves, but we have everything through the Word.
How To Receive Eternal Life
When Adam was created, man was made as a vessel ( an empty container) to contain God as his life. However, by creation he was merely an empty vessel; he did not have genuine life of God. When we are born of our parents we have ” biological ” life – but we do not yet have the eternal uncreated life of God himself. We need to be Born again, (John 3, 3, 5)
What kind of life did you have before you received Christ as saviour? It was, at best, a just a temporary life. It was an ” animal, biological life, Before you where born again you did NOT have real life. You did not have the permanent, uncreated life of the eternal God.
But now we are born again the life in Christ we have received is eternal, constant, and permanent. All men need such a life, the divine and uncreated life that is in Christ. This life is for man, and man is the receiver of this life.
Praise God we have been ” born again”
John 1:4 says, “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.
When we called on the name of the Lord Jesus, receiving Him into us, the divine life came into our being. Immediately we had the sense of something shining within us. That shining feeling is the shining of life. Because life shines, the life is the light of men. This shining is the strongest confirmation that we have been born of God.
John chapter one verse Verse 5 says, “And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.”
Darkness can never overcome or extinguish light, but light dispels darkness. When the light of life shines within us, darkness can never overcome it. We are Christians. We are FULL of God’s light. We are not in the darkness of ignorance, fear and unbelief and depression. We are in the light of understanding, revelation, joy, peace and faith! We are born again by receiving Jesus – “But as many as received Him, to them He gave authority to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (1:12-13).
Being “born again” – The birth described in these verses is not the natural birth which we had through our parents;
Being ” born again” it is the second birth which occurred when we believed in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Believing in the Lord is equal to receiving Him. When I speak of receiving the Lord Jesus, you may say that you have never done that.
However IF YOU SAY THAT , I want to ask you a question: Have you not believed in the Lord Jesus? BE ENCOURAGED IN YOUR FAITH! When you heard His name, did you not believe in it?
Whenever a person truly believes in that dear name, I am certain that, in some way or other, he will say, “Lord Jesus.”
HE WILL call out to the precious and Holy Name of Jesus!
As long as you say His name from the depths of your being, it means that you believe in Him. If you believe in Him by calling on His name, it is proof that you have received Him. And since you have received Him. Since you have received Him, you have received the authority to become a child of God.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave authority to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:12-13).
Let’s look at verses 12 and 13 once more……..
John 1:12, 13 – But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
it says …. “who were born, not of blood”.
that means….. that being born into a Christian family with Christian parents does NOT make you a Christian. Your not a Christian because of your ancestry ( blood).
you have to be born again
it also says ,,,,, “nor of the will of the flesh “…..
That means to cannot become Christian by trying to do good things and improving yourself! God has to give you HIS new life…… and come into you and change you!
then it also says, “nor of the will of man” what does this mean? It means that no pastor, priest, bishop, pope or holy man can impart life to you. Only JESUS can give you the NEW LIFE. You have to come to HIM and be born again.
Yes my brother or sister. The power of the word of God. It’s awesome! We can learn to overcome by The Word. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God, (Rom 10:17).
It’s been good to be with you this morning in this room for the short time sharing the word of God
