Answer Every Attack of the Enemy with the Word, Autism, Encouragement, Faith, Healed from Autism

God Wants You to Declare Victory Before You See It

In this video, you’ll hear a message based on 1 Samuel 17, childlike faith, and the finished work of Jesus Christ.

“We mustn’t be superstitious nor feel we lack humility or are being too audacious when it comes to declaring victory in the name of the Lord before we see it.

Victory over every enemy, every sickness, over autism, etc.

Because Jesus paid for every enemy to be defeated and healing in full for all on His body, like David, we can say to every giant, “For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?” (1 Samuel 17:26) before we see the victory.

David, of course, went on to take down the very giant, Goliath, he declared defeat over before he selected a single, smooth stone. Why? Because he knew the power of the Lord’s name, trusted in Him fully, and knew he was a covenant child of God.”

The Word of our Mouth, Unbelief

Unbelief and the Words of our Mouth

unbelief and the words of our mouth

The Lord brought together a word last night, 12/7/2019, regarding the oh so fun, yet necessary topic of unbelief and the words of our mouths.

I was talking with the Lord yesterday and asked, “Am I REALLY hearing You talk to me about unbelief almost non-stop? Unbelief, unbelief, unbelief, is what I’m hearing lately.” I didn’t hear back by the Spirit right then that time, but when I got in my car a few hours later, I turned the radio on and within a minute, I heard a woman say this on the radio, “A person we don’t want to imitate is Zacharias because of his unbelief, but we do want to imitate his wife, Elizabeth, because she stayed in faith. She believed the word of the Lord.” (Somewhat paraphrased but accurate).

“But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your prayer is heard; and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you shall call his name John. And you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth. For he will be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink. He will also be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb. And he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God. He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, ‘to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,’ and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. And Zacharias said to the angel, “How shall I know this? For I am an old man, and my wife is well advanced in years. And the angel answered and said to him, “I am Gabriel, who stands in the presence of God, and was sent to speak to you and bring you these glad tidings. But behold, you will be mute and not able to speak until the day these things take place, because you did not believe my words which will be fulfilled in their own time,” (Luke 1:13-22).

Elizabeth and Zacharias’s son, John’s birth was extremely important because he was being born to prepare the way of our Lord Jesus.

Because of Zacharias’s unbelief, the Lord temporarily muted him because the words of our mouths are so important (revelation from the Spirit from this situation) and unbelief is very serious and blocks people from receiving from the Lord. He muted him to keep him from speaking unbelief over the miraculous pregnancy of his son, possibly so the enemy wouldn’t use him to prevent conception or destroy the birth with unbelief. Only God knows all the depths as to why, but it was very important that Zacharias NOT be able to speak any unbelief over the conception and pregnancy.

The Word says in Psalm 138:2, “For You have magnified Your Word above all Your name,” and He told me to pray that all His people receive this verse as deep revelation knowledge and take it seriously.

Why is the fact that God magnifies His Word above His name so important? Because His Word says:

“Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief,” (Matthew 13:58).

Unbelief blocks the works of God in our lives because He says so. God will neither violate His Word, the one He exalts above His name, nor a person’s free will choice to reject His Word and will for his/her life because of unbelief. BUT He’s bringing this to our attention for a VERY GOOD reason because He desires to bless us and receive from Him so much.

It’s His will to help us with any unbelief (through the Word, prayer, and sometimes fasting), so we CAN receive from Him. He wants us to receive His promises and for His children to walk in the fullness of their callings as sons and daughters. Hallelujah! We praise You, Lord!

“A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; From the produce of his lips he shall be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit,” (Proverbs 18:20-21).

Using Zacharias, the Lord is telling us that unbelief and the words of our mouths affect our lives and the outcomes to our prayers and receiving from Him. That His people are not taking Him for His Word on these matters, and He loves us and wants us to.

We look at Proverbs 18:20-21 above and see its GREAT magnitude in our lives:

We are satisfied, filled, and eat of the RESULTS of what we say from our mouths. Are we speaking life (His Word)? Death and unbelief and killing our ability to receive from the Lord based on His Word which He will not violate?

We need not fear but only surrender and ask for help with any unbelief in our lives and with the words of our mouths. We must also prayerfully read and know the Word for ourselves to have more faith and less and less unbelief because the more we know His Word, the more we know His will, and the more we know His will, the more faith we will have, and the more we can pray without unbelief.

I am praying for myself for these things and taking this word from the Lord very seriously and praying it over us and all of God’s people.

Be Bold, Simply Take God for His Word, and Magnify it Above Every Circumstance – Sun Stand Still – Joshua 10:12-14

Sun Stand Still

Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel:

Sun, stand still over Gibeon;
And Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.”
So the sun stood still,
And the moon stopped,
Till the people had revenge
Upon their enemies.

Is this not written in the Book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. And there has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord heeded the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel. – Joshua 10:12-14

For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him. – 2 Chronicles 16:9

God’s eyes are looking throughout the whole earth for hearts who are loyal to Him and take Him for His Word.

Prayer

Father, by Your Holy Spirit, we loose Holy Spirit boldness to Your people. Grace them with faith that moves mountains. We believe, help, Lord, any unbelief. Let the words of our mouths magnify You above all things, all sickness, all disease, every trial and difficulty. Let us magnify and praise You and praise You for Your Word to pray for all matters concerning us in Jesus’ name, amen.

How God Equips Us to Muster Up the Mustard-sized Faith We Need to Receive

God equips us for faith-2

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

1 JOHN 5:14-15

If we ask anything “according to His will.” God is a good Father. He’s not a fake out God. He’s not going to tell us to ask according to His will and not tell us what His will is.

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17).

There’s no way around it. Want more faith? You must keep the Word before you and feed on it regularly.

Why does God say more Word equals more faith?

The more you know His Word, the more you know His will, character, and that He is a good Father. That good comes from Him, and evil comes from Satan.

The more you know these things, the more faith you’ll have because you’ll be full of the knowledge of His will thus infused with living and active confidence and boldness to pray like 1 John 5:14-15 (above).

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” (John 15:7).

Knowing His Word for yourself, not second hand through a preacher or a teacher of the Word, is key to faith and receiving from God according to His Word. His Word is true. He cannot lie.

My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh” (Proverbs 4:20-22). 

His Word is alive does the work in our lives and in our faith, but because we have free will, we get to choose whether or not to pay attention to His Words, keep them in front of our eyes daily, abide in them, listen to them, study them, etc.

To keep His Word ever near is to give you life and health to your physical body. What an incredible gift and revelation!

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart,” (Hebrews 4:12).

God’s Word is like nothing you’ll ever read or behold. It is literally alive, spiritually alive because it is Jesus, Himself. If you haven’t already, pray you can receive this truth as revelation knowledge. Your faith cannot be left unchanged when you take in the very Word God equates Himself with.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God,”…”And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth,” (John 1:1;14).

He IS His Word. Let His Word consume you and fill you with increasing faith and a deep revelation of His goodness, mercy, compassion, and love.

“But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God’” (Matthew 4:4).

The way I see all these verses put together is that His Word is life to us in every way, and we truly can’t live the way our good Father desires us to without living by it and knowing it for ourselves.

So, we can be saved and live a life far below His will and desires for us because we never chose to take Him for His Word to get to know Him. To know His Word is to know His will. To know Him and His will increases our faith more and more, so we can pray and receive our desires by faith.

And guess what?

The more we know His Word, the more our desires line up with His because no one can be left unchanged by God when His Word truly abides or is deeply rooted in them. And what will we desire with our ever increasing faith? To heal the sick, raise the dead, love, be blessed to be a blessing to the poor, widows, and orphans, etc.

“So Jesus said to them, ‘Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you'” (Matthew 17:20).

His Word is the only cure for unbelief. And with that mustard seed sized faith, nothing will be impossible.

More Word. More faith. 

It’s our choice.

P.S. God is SO good, as we are going through things, He will lead you to the promises you need in His Word to stand on and take Him for. But His best is to seek the God who is His Word with all our hearts.

God is Raising Up People Who Will Be a Terror to the Enemy

terror to the enemy retake the land
At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

MATTHEW 18:1-4

God is raising up people who will be a terror to the enemy and will retake land for His Kingdom.

These ones must simply choose to walk in childlike faith with the Father, diligently seek Him, and stay on the prayer assignments He gives them, persistently, fervently, consistently.
