TO THE BIBLE Proverbs 18:21 CEV
“Words can bring death or life! Talk too much, and you will eat everything you say.”
This scripture in Proverbs 18:21 shows just how powerful and creative words are. With your words, you can either bring forth a more excellent life or produce death. It’s therefore important that you’re careful not to speak of yourself in a way that contradicts the Word of God in your life. It’s quite easy to get caught up with the negative language of the world. Everywhere you turn, people are constantly talking fear, lack, defeat, and failure. They see nothing wrong with it, because it’s normal with them. However, as God’s child, you shouldn’t imbibe that negative culture, because you’re not of this world. Your language, therefore, must be different.
When a Christian talks negatively, it rubs off on his spirit and contradicts the work of God in his life. This is why some Christians who claim to know the Word of faith find it difficult to produce supernatural results in their lives. Their spirits have been loaded with the wrong stuff, which must be removed through the knowledge of God’s Word. As you study and meditate on the Word, the circumstances of your life are made to conform to the realities of God’s Word. The more you imbibe His Word, the more you’re transformed from glory to glory, with the Word building in you a positive mentality (2 Corinthians 3:18).
If you’re a student, for example, no matter what task or project has been set before you, learn to say, “I can do this through Christ which strengthens me!” (Philippians 4:13). Recognise that you’re sufficient with God’s sufficiency, and as a result, you can do all things. Eliminate all forms of negativism and pessimism from your vocabulary. Train yourself through God’s Word to see only boundless possibilities, and have the “I-can-do” mentality and language.
Pray: Dear Lord, I thank you for the glory of your Word in my life! Your Word lightens my path through life, and I can see all the great levels of glory you’ve planned out for me to walk in. Amen.
Act: Practise saying these words to yourself:
1 “I’m smart and intelligent.”
- “I have abundant health and I’m rich!”
- “No evil can befall me; I’m protected from evil and danger”
- “I am beautifully and wonderfully made by the Lord”
How to take possession of what belongs to you as a Christian
How to take possession of what belongs to you as a Christian
A lot of times many Christians forget or are ignorant of who they really are, what belongs to them and what they can do. Theres no reason for a child of God to be oppressed by the devil. The devil cannot oppress you without your permission.
The only way the devil can oppress you is with your permission. The devil cannot destroy your business, your home, finances etc without your permission. He needs your permission.
The only reason the devil can rule over any Christian is with the permission of that Christian whether or not he does it consciously. And if you find things going in a certain direction continually, you may have given the devil permission to do so, whether or not you knew about it makes no difference.
There are people who say well we never can tell whats going to happen. it’s easy to say that so that we leave the responsibility to God and make God the scape goat for all the things that happen, so we can blame someone bigger than us for all the things that happen to us.
So there are many Christians who live in fear, Some others say whatever will be will be, if its mine it will come to me if it’s not mine it will not come to me.
No, theres a devil out there that has the responsibility to stop what belongs to you from getting to you. you have to remember that.
Just because you are a Christian doesnt mean everything is going to come out right. Sometimes you look at yourself and say what have done to deserve this thing, I haven’t done anything wrong to anybody, I haven’t hurt anybody, well bad things happen to good people.
Sometime ago a gentleman told his children not to be very good because bad things happen to good people and truly bad things do happen to good people.
So many people wonder, that man was so nice, why did that happen to him, why did God allow it, God? That is the escapist mechanism.
Or they say if God didnt allow it, it wouldn’t happen? God? What is our responsibility in all these, does it mean if God didnt allow it, it wouldn’t have happened.
Take charge of your life, if you dont take do something about your life nothing may change. Your goodness will not change anything. Does that mean you should stop being good ?
No you have to be good and kind. what it means is that all of that will not bring the money in, stop the devil from oppressing you, will not get rid of the sickness or disease or infirmity and will not stop poverty from attacking you.
Someone once asked, why is it that all the bad guys have all the good things and all the good guys have all the bad things. Well that’s being generic, it’s not exactly so, but it seems to be so, then those of us who are enjoying life then look bad in the eyes of others, they always think that we must be doing something wrong for good things to be happening to us.
Isnt it terrible that people believe that the devil is kind and helps his kids get all the good things and God is wicked and they have to beg him and fast and pray and cry.
Sometimes they say 7 days fasting and prayer before you get your deliverance, then why did Jesus come? Or they say 8 days fasting and prayer for you get your breakthrough, through what? Why did Jesus come? It’s a question they have not been able to answer because they are ignorant of the bible.
See Ephesians 1:15-23 He says his mighty power directed towards us is that power that raised him from the dead and set him on Gods right hand. Note that It says right hand not right hand side. When you say someone is your right hand man, does it mean he is at your right hand side? It means your man of authority, the man to whom you have vested authority.
So when you say Jesus is seated on the right hand of God, it’s not the same thing as saying he is seated on the right hand side of God.
God has only one body, Jesus is the express image of his person. So in heaven you are not going to see Jesus and God the father and the holy spirit. You will see God in Jesus. On earth he is in the church, not in the building in his people, his children. See verse 23 The church of Jesus christ is the fullness of God.
Hebrews 2:14-15 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
The word destroy there doesnt mean to annihilate it means to paralyze to make ineffective. Jesus Christ because we were human he also became human so that through death he might make ineffective, he might render powerless the one that had the power of death, that is the devil and delivered those who all their lifetime were in bondage because of the fear of death. Satan has been paralyzed.
There are Christian’s who believe they need deliverance, they say the demon who is holding them is too powerful.
Many Christians are living in the past truth not in the present truth. The present truth is that the devil has been paralyzed by the devil and he cannot hold anybody in bondage who proclaims the name of Jesus
You can just walk out of his bondage, he cant hold you back, the only way he can stop you is by lying to you that you are still in bondage. Jesus said you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. He didnt say it shall set you free he said it shall make you free.
There are too many who are under the whip lash of the devil suffering so much for nothing because they have been deceived in thinking that the old truth is still there.
A gentleman once did an experiment, he put an insect in a container and closed it. The insect kept trying to come out, it will jump up to hit the lid, he left it there until the insect was preconditioned to think the lid was still there so he removed the lid. The insect kept jumping to where the lid was and kept going back in. That’s how most Christians are.
There are two words that are frequently used in the new testament in the greek translated world for us in the English version, so in the English version you would not know there is a difference, they are aion and cosmos.
Aion means a system within a period of time, example when someone says we are in a new age, it doesnt mean the world has changed
Cosmos refers to the earth, the world and its order of things, how the people are in the world and how things are in the world.
Usually the cosmos is dictated by the aion because the system of government decides how a nation will be like.
So to conquer a nation you got to destroy the government. If you want to change how that nation runs you have to change the system of government.
John.12.31 – Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
It says Satan was the prince of the cosmos, he got it from Adam back in the garden, he was in charge.
Jesus said I have overcome the cosmos. So the money that you need is no longer the property of the devil. You dont have to have them but you know you could have them if you want to. John 16:33
Changing difficult situations with God’s Word
The Woman with the Issue of Blood in the Bible Explained By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
Changing difficult situations with God’s Word . Mark 5:25-34 This story is about the woman with the issue of blood. The bible says that this woman had suffered for twelve long years and she had become poor from paying the doctors, she didn’t get better and her condition worsened. The bible says she heard of Jesus and she said to herself if I may but touch the helm of his garment I shall be whole .
When she got there she saw that there were so many people around Jesus but her faith was unmoved. She went through the press and touched Jesus and she was healed.
This is remarkable, the power didn’t originate in his clothes, the miracle was not about what Jesus wore, the power was in Jesus and the power was transmitted to his clothes.
But that’s not the point I want us to see, what i want us to see is what really happened. The bible says the woman touched the helm of his garment and the fountain of her blood was dried up, she touched the helm of his garment and the flow of blood stopped. Jesus didn’t do anything about it, Jesus didnt try to heal the woman. See verse 30 of the same chapter.
The bible says Jesus knew that power had gone out of him. The woman pulled power out of Jesus and Jesus didn’t do anything about it, he didn’t try make the power flow, he didn’t cause the woman to be healed , he didnt even take notice of the woman, the woman pulled power out of Jesus.
This shows that the woman had a choice, she made a choice and she didn’t think if Jesus will let the power come her , or if Jeus will like her enough to heal her, she didnt think about her sin.
She went, touched , got the miracle and tried to sneak away.
The Bible says Jesus knowing in himself that power had gone out of him asked who touched me, he didnt say Jesus knew about the woman or Jesus had a revelation, he says Jesus recognised that power had gone out of him.
The disciples asked him thou sees the multitude pressed on you how can you say who touched me?
The miracle therefore didnt happen because of the touch, because everybody was touching, everybody could have said I have got something i touched Jesus. so the disciples were surprised that Jesus was asking for who touched him and Jesus kept on looking around to see who has touched him.
So even in the midst of a crowd you can make a choice to recieve. It doesnt matter who else is doing what you are doing, you can make a choice. Everybody maybe touching but that doesnt make any difference because you know what you believe.
Here’s what inspired that woman, I am going to touch him and am going to be healed , somebody else may be touching him but no power flowed. Jesus felt power leave him, all others touched him and nothing happened.
You are the one to single yourself out, the woman went through the press and touched his garment and power flowed.
Jesus said unto her daughter thy faith has made thee whole, He didnt say my power has made you whole, of my faith has made you whole. it was her faith so her faith pulled power of of Jesus, so Jesus had nothing to do with it, it wasn’t a matter of Jesus coming to town and saying I want to heal this person and don’t want to heal this person.
As some people will say whenever God wants to heal me He will heal me or whenever God wants to do it for me I know He will do it for me. It doesn’t matter that you are crying my God will never fail me, whenever He wants to He will do it for me, that is not faith and that is not what the Bible says.
Faith is Now. whenever God is going to do it He will do it, is not Faith. It doesn’t matter how many times you pray that prayer.
A lot of times people think that the more prayer they pray the better for them so they say “I have engaged many people to to pray for me” they think if they have enough people praying for they he will respond, he cant deny three thousand people.
They think this way because they are ignorant of the bible, they have forgotten that one time the whole world was destroyed and only one family was saved.
When you look into the future from the book of revelation there are multitudes that will go to hell.
Somebody said do you think God will just pack so many people to hell? they have not read the Bible, it has nothing to do with numbers.
Theres a feeling we have about suffering, if I find out am not the only one in the matter I am more comfortable. Dont look at life like that.
Life is very personal, our salvation is very personal, our relationship with God is very personal, don’t use other people to determine your life. It matters how you hear God and how you respond to God.
If you were the only one on earth Jesus would still have come to die for you, that is what the Bible teaches.
He didn’t come because we were many. you are unique as an individual, nobody was ever like you, nobody will ever be like you, you are the only one of you that God has and he will ever have . Make a choice to be the best for God. Nobody can do things the way you do, nobody can say it the way you do.
Unbelief can cause the power of God to fail Mark 6: 1-6 all you need is your faith to act on Gods word. Accept what he says that is faith.
Advancing in life
Advancing in life By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
1Tim.4.15 – Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.
How I wish that you would understand the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the word of God in your life. The word of God has a ministry in your life.
He says meditate upon the word of God, give yourself wholly to them, in other words yield yourself to the word of God, let the word of God have power over your life.
What does that mean?
When you hear the word yield yourself to it
Here is a simple example imagine that someone says to you “stand up” without him carrying you up, you have a choice to stand up or not to stand up. If he says get up, you can decide to get up, you can decide you are not going to get up, if you don’t get up you are resisting the instruction, but when you choose to get up at that word, that means you are yielding yourself to that instruction, you are giving yourself to that instruction and because you have given yourself to that instruction you will enjoy the benefits that comes with that instruction.
Profiting in the verse above is from the greek word “prokope” it means your furtherance, advancement, progress may appear to all.
I kind of like the word that the greek used for it. its translated may appear to all but its more than just to appear, it’s the greek phaneros which means to spread abroad, it means that your advancement, your furtherance, your progress may spread abroad, become widely known, openly known. Your progress will be seen by all.
If you will meditate on the word, give yourself wholly and completely to the word, the time will come when that word will propel your advancement that it will be seen. The word has a ministry in your life to get this to happen.
Josh.1.8 – This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
God has put in your hands what you need to make your way prosperous. You can make your life prosperous, the responsibility is yours, you can do it because you are just like God, you belong in his class. 1John 4:17
You can have good success, When you study Joshua 1:8 in Greek it says you not only have good success, it says you become perceptive, it means sagacious, your intelligence will rise, your thinking level is different from others, accurately insightful.
That’s what the word of God does in your life, it makes you wise, penetratingly discerning. Another version says You become wise in the affairs of life, you function wisely. Some people don’t function wisely and that accounts for the failures that they experience in their life.
You can function wisely when the spirit of God through the word brings into your understanding that sagacity of the spirit that only a child of God can have.
Psalm 1:1-3 In verse 3 he says And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Can you imagine if your life turns that way where everything you do prospers.
See Psalm 119:98-99 Acts 20:32
The word of God has the ability to build you up, he will build you mentality physically, financially and in every way.
Meditate on the word like never before, bombard your mind with the word of God until you become saturated, completely inundated with the word of God and see what will happen in your life. Do it everyday and you will be full of testimonies because the word has the ability to produce in us what it talks about
