1NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLEWe serve a God for whom nothing is impossible. This amazing truth is declared in 2 different scriptures in the New Testament.
2NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”Matthew 16:26 (NIV)“For nothing is impossible with God.”Luke 1:37 (NIV)
3NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLEJesus speaking about the Rich Young Ruler (Matthew 19:16-26)Angel Gabriel spoke to Mary(Luke 1:26-38)God is the only one who exists in the realm of infinite power, for He alone is eternal. Everything else was created and therefore has restrictions.We are finite, limited, have a moment of birth, live within time and space. God wants to share with us what was reserved for Him alone.
4NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLEGod has made a way for us to enter into His realm of infinite, unlimited power where ALL things are POSSIBLE!FAITH is the connectorWhat is the connector between these two realms? Faith
5NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE Jesus heals a Demon Possessed Boy Matthew 17:14-21Mark 9:14-29Matthew 14:21 “Nothing will be impossible for you.”Mark 9:23 - “Everything is possible for one who believes.”Mark 9:28,29 Faith requires an action on our part- believing, prayer, fasting, unless the Lord’s sovereignty comes into play. Even then, there are times when prayer has preceded a sovereign move of God.
6NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”Matthew 16:26 (NIV)“For nothing is impossible with God.”Luke 1:37 (NIV)The true meaning of Luke 1:37 shows us another way to connect with the realm of infinite unlimited power, although faith is still a necessary component.
7NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE Nothing - no thing Greek word for thing is RHEMA “For nothing is impossible with God.”Nothing - no thingGreek word for thing is RHEMARHEMA means freshly spoken word of GodTrue meaning of verse is –No freshly spoken word of God will be impossible.Different from the printed word (logos) because it carries with it the implication that it is the actual voice of God.
8NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE “For nothing is impossible with God.” Impossible - without abilityFull translation of verse –No freshly spoken word of God will ever come to you that does not contain its own ability or divine capacity to perform itself.
9NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLEWhen a word from the Lord is released, it carries with it the seed of God’s infinite realm of unlimited power, so that the impossible becomes possible!RHEMA – spoken word- prophetic word – all interchangeable
10NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLEIsaiah 55:11 (NIV) says, “so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”The Message says, “…complete the assignment I gave them.”
11NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLEQUESTION: What part do we play in this besides having faith?“I am the Lord’s servant, Mary answered, “May it be to me as you have said.” Luke 1:38Yielded and humble heartRead Bill Johnson Quote
12NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLEQUESTION: What else did Mary do that was vital in bringing forth the fulfillment of God’s promise for her life?“But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.“ Luke 2:19 (NIV)Mary treasured all the prophetic words spoken to her from the Angel Gabriel, Elizabeth, Shepherds, Wisemen, Simeon and Anna the prophetess. In doing so she modeled for us how to create the connection between the prophetic word spoken by God and the supernatural outcome.
13NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLEKeep – protect, hover over, guard, persevere, keep in mind (diligence is necessary)Treasure – cherish, treat with great value, savourPonder – pause, meditate, consider deeply
14NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE“Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his mother treasured all these things in her heart. And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and men.” Luke 2:51,52Mary did this for years, knowing that all the words spoken to her about her son’s destiny could only find fulfillment if connected to the supernatural realm.
15NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE1. We were born to co-labour with a God who knows no impossibilities!2. Embedded in every prophetic word from the Lord is the supernatural capacity to perform itselfMary modeled beautifully for us how and what to do with the Prophetic or freshly spoken word from God. I feel that for some here the prophetic words you have received have become a sting that the enemy has used to discourage you and speak the lie that God has failed you, rather than something that you have kept and treasured in your heart. I would like to encourage us all to follow Mary’s example by firstly acknowledging these 5 truths -
16NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE3. There is nothing that we can do in the natural to make these promises come to pass4. Our posture should to be one of a tender, yielded and humble heart walking by faith
17NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE5. The Lord’s promises through the prophetic words spoken to us need to be treasured, pondered and kept in our heartsShare testimony of Lynn and Baby William- Perfect Storm, Full restorationShare testimony of my fear and the word of the LordMake sure it’s a true word – test, ask, your spirit has to be in agreement with it
18NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLEThe danger in living in a prophetic culture is that we can become complacentThe bigger the prophetic word the harder it is to believeWe can downgrade our own destinies as a resultWe need to take a fresh look at the words spoken over our lives and if necessary, repent for not giving them the weight they deserve, take them off the shelf and start carrying them in our hearts again. For nothing is impossible with God!
19NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE“With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”Matthew 16:26 (NIV)“For nothing is impossible with God.”Luke 1:37 (NIV)Rhema word, spoken word, prophetic word is like an anchor in the midst of the storm. If you don’t have one for your impossible situation, ask for one.
