THE PROMISE OF GOD GENESIS 3:2-5 2The woman said to the serpent, "We may eat fruit from the trees in the garden, 3but God did say, `You must not eat fruit from the tree that is in the middle of the garden, and you must not touch it, or you will die.' " 4"You will not surely die," the serpent said to the woman. 5"For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."
THE PROMISE OF GOD Num 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? Josh 23:14 "Now I am about to go the way of all the earth. You know with all your heart and soul that not one of all the good promises the LORD your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed. God’s word & promise will come to pass.
THE LAW OF SEED & HARVEST Gal 6:7-10 7Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
SEED ACCORDING TO ITS KIND Scripture leaves no room for mistake. The seed we sow is what we reap. You cannot sow corn and reap strawberries. The seed program will only develop its kind. It is different than all other seed programs. We can sow to the flesh & reap of the flesh. We can sow to the spirit & reap of the spirit. God is not mocked.
SEEDING YOUR SPIRIT Gal 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. We cannot seed our own spirit. An apple tree cannot seed an apple tree. It takes an apple seed to grow an apple tree. The apple tree will grow apples with many seeds. Our seed must come from someone else. God’s word is our spirit seed & grows fruit. Seeds from that fruit is what we sow in others.
FAITH SAID BRINGS EXISTENCE Heb 11:3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. Gen 1:3 And God said, "Let there be light,“ Gen 1:11 God said, "Let the land produce vegetation seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds." And it was so. Gen 1:24 And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds… God by faith “said” & faith force brought existence.
FAITH SAID BRINGS EXISTENCE Matt 4:10-11 Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan!..Then the devil left him, Matt 8:7 Jesus said "I will go and heal him.“ Matt 12:13 he said to the man, "Stretch out your hand…completely restored. Matt 9:21 She said to herself, "If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed…Jesus said: “your faith has healed you. Matt 21:19 Then he said to it, "May you never bear fruit again!" Immediately the tree withered. These are examples of the force of faith, spoken,
OUR WORDS HAVE POWER Matt 21:21-22Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done. 22 If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.“ Isa 55:11 “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 word of God we speak will not return empty
WORDS WE SPEAK HAVE POWER Job 3:25-26 What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me. I have no peace, no quietness; I have no rest, but only turmoil.“ (Job got what he said) I can not lose weight. I cant remember what I read. I do not understand the bible. I cannot make friends. I will not have enough money to pay bills. I have trouble loving others. This marriage will never work. It’s too late for counseling. I cant forgive others like I should. I will never be able to follow God’s ways. Do you have the faith God has in you?
THE DEVIL IS A FEAR AGENT Rom 8:15 For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. we cry, "Abba, Father.“ James 3:14-16 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. Such "wisdom" does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil. For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice. John 8:44 He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him…… He is a liar and the father of lies.
MISSED OPPORTUNITIES! Rich blessings and opportunities provided by God, are accessed by your words, faith spoken. Isa 55:11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, You live at a level below God’s will for you, if you don’t know or use His Word by your faith Faith is the victory that over comes the world. Faith comes by hearing the word. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Luke 6:45 Use your faith don’t limit your blessings.
IS HIS WORD ALIVE IN YOU? 1.Ps 119:15 I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. 2.Ps 119:147 I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word. 3.Is there a promise to claim? 4.Is there a lesson to learn? 5.Is there a blessing to enjoy? 6.Is there a command to obey? 7.Is there a sin to avoid? 8.Is there a new thought to carry you closer? 9.Speaking your faith brings blessing to exist.
