“A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks” (Luke 6:45).
Your heart must be established in faith in order to move in the area of your need. Faith is believing in your heart that God’s Word is true and that belief is so established, that out of the abundance of your heart your mouth speaks God’s promises as though they were already in existence. The only way to have faith coming out of your mouth is to have your heart established in His Word.
Legalism says, “If I can be good enough, God will see my good works and answer my prayer.” Faith says, “I believe God’s promise without wavering, in spite of what I see or hear.” Once I heard a man say if everything was established on works, then at least he would be able to see what’s happening. Unfortunately, if everything were based on works, he would have never seen anything happen. Why? Because our works can never be good enough to accomplish anything remotely close to what God can accomplish through us by faith.
If your destiny was depending upon your works and how good you are, then what would your destiny be? The truth is, if our destiny depended on our works, we would have legalism once again. Grace is much better.
Paul worked hard in the books of Galatians and Colossians to get legalism out of the church. Our best works developed from the mind and imagination of man will pale by comparison to what one can do who is led by the Spirit of God and walking in faith.
The Word says that out of the abundance of the heart that our mouth speaks. I propose that it’s much better to have faith on our lips than to have works. Faith is a rest and that’s where God wants us. (Heb. 4:11.) When we rely on works above faith, we are subtly saying that our works will accomplish more than what God can accomplish through faith in His Word.
So take a rest from your work and walk in faith.
Power From Jesus’ Body To Yours
…“Take, eat; this is My body.” Matthew 26:26
Can you imagine the Lord sick, nursing a cold or fever while He walked on earth? No, our Lord Jesus was never sick! He was vibrant, full of life and full of health. When He told His disciples, “Take, eat; this is My body”, they could practically visualize what it meant because they had lived and walked with this Man. They had seen people without hands or feet made whole when they touched His body. (Matthew 15:30–31)
Even His clothes were soaked with His health! A woman who had a bleeding condition for 12 years — no doctor could cure her — was healed immediately when she touched the hem of His garment. If the hem of His garment was soaked with His health, vibrancy, energy and divine radiance, how much more His body!
You know, some of the most encouraging verses in the Gospels are these: “And as many as touched Him were made well” (Mark 6:56), for “power went out from Him and healed them all”. (Luke 6:19) I love those verses! That is our Jesus!
The Bible says that they put sick people along the streets, and Jesus walked around, touched them and healed them. Now, you see movie stars doing this: They run here and there, they slap their fans’ hands, but nobody gets healed. But wherever Jesus walked, whoever He touched, He healed. Picture this: A trail of people. Those in front of Jesus are lying down, but those behind Him whom He has touched are leaping with joy and following Him! That is how Jesus healed the sick.
So that night, when He said, “Take, eat; this is My body,” as He broke the bread and gave it to His disciples to eat, they knew what it meant. They were probably thinking, “We are going to ingest His health into our bodies! Hallelujah!”
That is what you must believe when you partake of the Holy Communion. It is not just a ritual or symbolic act. No, you must believe that He is the true bread from heaven who took your cancer, diabetes and heart disease, so that you can have His supernatural health! And when you eat of His broken body with this revelation, you will have life in abundance and the health of the Lord!
Thought For The Day
Believe that Jesus is the true bread from heaven who took your cancer, diabetes and heart disease, so that you can have His supernatural health
JESUS CHRIST WAS AND IS A MAN OF WAR AND SO SHOULD WE BE AND NOT PACIFISTS , COWARDS OR FAIRIES
Exodus 15 3 The LORD is a man of war; The LORD is His name.
Matthew 11 12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.
LOVE IS NOT WORDS. JESUS LOVE WAS ACTION…
HE DIDN’T WALK AROUND SAYING I LOVE YOU!! NO, JESUS SHOWED EVERYONE HE CAME IN CONTACT WITH LOVE IN ACTION. HE NEVER LEFT THEM THE WAY HE FOUND THEM.
LOVE IS NOT LIP SERVICE.
THEY GOT THIS LOVE THING ALL WRONG. LOVE DIED ON A CROSS FOR ALL MANKIND.
REAL LOVE WON’T ALLOW THE DEVIL TO KEEP HOLD ON ANOTHER. EVEN WHEN THEY DON’T ASK FOR IT OR KNOW THEY NEED IT.
CHRISTIANS ARE TO BUSY WASTING TIME ON THE WRONG THINGS IN THEIR SO CALLED HOLY GHOST PARTIES WITH THEIR SOCIAL GROUPS AND THE DEVIL IS WREAKING HAVOC IN THE LIVES OF THE PRECIOUS ONES JESUS CAME TO SAVE, HEAL AND DELIVER. THE CHURCH NEEDS TO MOVE OUT OF THE BUILDING…. INTO THE WORLD FOLLOWING JESUS EXAMPLE OF LOVE IN ACTION. ALL THE REST IS A WASTE OF TIME
REVELATIONS 19:11 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.
12 His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself.
13 He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God.
14 And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses.
15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
16 And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
STEPHEN, FULL OF FAITH AND POWER, DID GREAT WONDERS AND SIGNS AMONG THE PEOPLE
Acts 6: 1 Now in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplying, there arose a complaint against the Hebrews by the Hellenists, because their widows were neglected in the daily distribution.
2 Then the twelve summoned the multitude of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable that we should leave the word of God and serve tables.
3 Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business;
4 but we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word.”
5 And the saying pleased the whole multitude. And they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, and Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch,
6 whom they set before the apostles; and when they had prayed, they laid hands on them.
7 Then the word of God spread, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were obedient to the faith.
8 And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and signs among the people.
Nothing destroys dead Christian Orthodoxy and religionists like miracles, signs and wonders done in their midst. The demonized ones have no excuse for their impotence and deception except to character assassinate the Miracle worker. The bible tells us that people are amazed and in wonders when such things occur and even the skeptics become converted. Mind there are those foolish ones called Cessationists who will not repent of their deception and unbelief and unbelief!
Cessationists do believe in the supernatural occurrences in Scripture, of course, but they have no expectation that God will intervene supernaturally today except, perhaps, through providence. But the notion of the gifts of the Spirit being in operation today, as in 1 Corinthians 12:10-12, is out of the question.
Cessationists do not want to appear smug or unreachable; they simply don’t believe the claims of charismatics and Pentecostals who have reportedly seen the miraculous. They are not questioning our honesty; they feel we have been either too optimistic, perhaps gullible, if not actually deceived.
In my opinion Cessationists are arrogant, prideful, unbelievers on the way to hell or they would have acknowledged what Jesus had stated of true believers:
Mark 16:14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen.
15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
19 So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God.
20 And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.
IT’S TO BE NOTED Supernatural demonstration was so important in Jesus Ministry, he would never minister without it, it amazes me that some preachers even today have abandoned supernatural ministry and have tried to replace it with entertaining the people with a lot on nonsense
THE FLUFF AND STUFF
Just because some have perverted prosperity I am not going to lump them all together and throw it out. The Bible does teach that God wants to prosper us and healing is available to us that believe. You have extremes in all doctrine and in every camp/denomination etc. That is not true that health and wealth ends with man, and signs and wonders with Jesus. I have seen more extremes and fruit loops in the signs and wonders camp than anywhere else. Chasing non biblical signs and wonders that have nothing to do with Jesus. I hear more of Jesus being preached and sound biblical teaching from Word of Faith then the others. When gold dust, gold teeth and so called angel feathers are chased (and I have seen people crawling around on the floor looking for gold dust, gems etc) over an encounter with the Lord something is wrong. There is more preaching about the fluff and stuff then Jesus! Time and time again people have been caught planting such foolishness. So this camp is no better where exalting Jesus is concerned then those that do pollute the prosperity message. I am all about the glory of God and His presence, but a lot of the foolishness going on with the signs and wonders camp are no better than the extremes of some in Word of Faith. The Bible tells us what signs believers are to expect and they are to follow us, not us chase after them!
