BIBLE STUDY: The Power of Words: Speaking With The Voice of God and The Blessings That Follow! (Part 2)

Jesus Christ was not politically correct; and He most certainly was not religiously correct! Jesus taught men how to use the spoken Word of God, to activate the spiritual realm; which would in turn, bring mighty forces to bear in our physical world. Jesus taught us how to combine the TRUTH of God, with the POWER of God!

Before we start today, let us again open our Bibles and ask God to guide us in the understanding of His Truth: to show us, and teach us, all the things God The Father has given to Jesus to know (John 16:13-15). Let us pray…

Father, we Thank You for opening up Your Holy Scriptures to our understanding today! Help us to learn, embrace, and remain in sound doctrine; no longer being deceived by the evil men and seducers that lead so many astray (Matthew 7:12-27, 24:4-5, 11, 24). You Father are the Source of knowledge; who makes us wise unto salvation, through faith in your Son, Jesus the Christ. Open our eyes to clearly see and understand Your inspired Words. Let Your Word - the Holy Scriptures, teach us Your Truth, Your Doctrine, Your Instruction in Righteousness; and correct in us any false concepts we may still hold onto of You, Your Plan for our lives, or for this world. We ask You Father, to continue to finish and refine our faith and knowledge of You; that we may be equipped and empowered to do the work which You have set before us to do. We now Praise You Father, and we Thank You; for both hearing our prayer, and answering it today, in this Assembly of your children, on this Holy Sabbath Day. In Jesus Christ’s Mighty Name, Amen.

Bible Study Instructions: One Nation Under God Ministries (www.onug.us) publishes and distributes weekly Bible Studies, worldwide – free of charge, to anyone who requests them, in both printed and electronic formats. Our Studies are intended to be a simple and fun way to learn the Scriptures, and are very easy to follow! We adhere to Jesus Christ’s Biblical instructions to teach and feed the flock of God portions of meat in due season, on weekly Sabbaths, and on the seven annual Holy Days throughout each calendar year (Luke 12:42 / Isaiah 28:9-10 / Matthew 13:52). Using both the Old and New Testaments, our Bible Studies are designed to present a premise, make a statement, or ask a question – followed by one or more Scriptural references. Just look up and read from your Bible the Scriptures listed. Comments following questions elaborate on the Scriptures you just read. Pray always before beginning any study of God’s Word, asking God to open both your eyes and your mind to His Truth; then Prove everything you read, is in fact the Truth, by comparing it to The Word of God (1 Thessalonians 5:21 / 2 Timothy 3:15-17). Then use the Biblical System of Checks and Balances, and SEE if both Jesus Christ, and the First Century Church of God Apostles – also Did, Said, and Taught these SAME THINGS (Galatians 1:1-12, 5:25 / 1 Peter 2:21, 25 / 1 John 2:3-6)! That’s all there is to it! Our Bible Studies are based on the King James Version, unless otherwise stated. We will be praying for your eyes to “see” (Matthew 13:11-17); and we are always available to answer any of your questions! Be Blessed, in Jesus’ Name! - One Nation Under God Ministries (www.onug.us).

How about you? Have you learned to fill yourself with the knowledge of God’s will for your life - in wisdom, and with all spiritual understanding (Colossians 1:9)? Are you walking worthy of your calling, with all the benefits, all the blessings, and all the power that comes from your new Kingdom Citizenship (Colossians 1:10-14)?

There are many today who profess to be Christians, and yet are very comfortable saying Jesus no longer gives this power to His followers (2 Timothy 3:5). Some have gone to church for years, and still deny a Biblical Truth; that Jesus gives His followers the power to heal, the power to prosper, and the power to overcome the forces of darkness in this world (2 Timothy 3:6-9). Jesus still teaches people today about The Kingdom of God; but He does it through other men whom He has already instructed in these precepts. Find a teacher of BIBLICAL TRUTHS whom you can see and prove, knows and uses the Word of God skillfully, and honestly. Let them teach you the about the faith once delivered by Christ Himself. You can study the Bible for a lifetime, and never understand it – unless your Bible teacher knows and follows the Fear, Obedience, and Praise formula of Psalm 111:10, and possesses the Holy Spirit of God, so that he can lead others - through the power of God’s Holy Spirit, in an Isaiah 28:9-10 / Matthew 13:52 Bible Study.

A teacher of God’s True Gospel will always teach The Word through the path and the sequential order of Repentance, Baptism, and the impartation of THE Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38, 8:14-25), so that the children who God adds to the Body, can grow STRONG in The Knowledge of The TRUTH (Acts 17:18-34)! Just as God first raised Christ from the dead, and will later, in His order, also raise us from the dead at Christ’s Coming (1 Corinthians 15:22-23 / Daniel 12:1-3); God also calls humans throughout history - worldwide, in His order, to end their “times of Kingdom Ignorance” and repent!

Your time of ignorance has ended; or is about to! It is now time to embrace and learn how to live a BOLD and POWERFUL CHRISTIANITY!!! The KING of the Universe deserves nothing less from you!!!

Did you know that rejecting the REAL teachers of Christ’s Coming Kingdom, is to reject Christ Himself (1 Samuel 8:7-22)?

Asking for, and seeking after leaders and teachers, not appointed by God; will always lead to a falling away from The Power and The Blessings God intends for His Anointed Children to have! It will mean YOU will miss out on the reward Christ had intended to bestow upon you! I have seen many churches and congregations fall apart, simply because people followed charismatic human being leaders, instead of the Eternal Jesus Christ!

Just look at our local churches, and look at our nation today! Where is the POWER that the Followers of Jesus Christ are PROMISED in the pages of the Holy Bible? It is not there anymore, in almost every church and place you look, you can’t find it anymore!!!

In the year 2016 A.D., we can see clearly that this has happened in our churches, and it has already happened in our governments! But Thanks to The Most High God, there is a way for us to come back!!! We can have The Blessings and The Power RESTORED to us now; as a preview of what God will do for the whole world at Christ’s Return (Zechariah 9:11-12, 16 / Isaiah 40:1-5, 61:1-11)!!! Jesus is such a POWERFUL KING (Joel 3:16); and yet our Father God is speaking so softly to us now, asking us to prepare the Way of The LORD, to make straight in the desert a highway for our God (or in other words, God is asking His Church to untwist the devil’s theology in a barren land or desert, devoid of Biblical Truth; and to Preach The Real Gospel of Jesus Christ’s Coming Kingdom, with clarity and boldness, and with provable Scriptural Truths and historical facts)!!!

The Empowering Blessings that God will send upon those He calls, who obediently accept that Calling; will foreshadow the literal geographical and topological feats God will accomplish in stone and in earth at His Coming. Jesus PROMISES to fill in your valleys of trouble, doubts, and fears; and to level the overwhelming mountains that exist in your life; crooked things will be made straight, and rough places will be made plain – if YOU learn how to harness the POWER OF GOD which Jesus Christ now offers YOU (Mark 11:22-26)!!! God has never used weak and pathetic disciples to preach His Coming Kingdom; He has always empowered mere humans to do MIGHTY WORKS as previews and “free samples” of what life will be really like, living under the Authority of The KING of kings, during the Millennial Rule of Jesus CHRIST (Acts 5:1-32, 42)!

Let Go To The Gym!

You can learn all you want to about diet, nutrition, and exercise – read all the fitness magazines; but that is never going to make you healthier and stronger! Unless you modify your diet, stop eating foods that hurt you and your body, then get off your duff, go to the gym and force your body to grow, and to change, through exercise and lifting heavier and heavier weights; you are never going to come to “the knowledge of the truth”, or figure out what actually works for you, and how to effect that positive physical change!!! You can’t exercise the same body part everyday either; you need to make sure your body gets the right rest each night, and between exercise applications! Knowledge about how to make the human body healthier and stronger must first be learned, then applied. Likewise, knowledge about how to make the Body of Christ healthier and stronger must also be learned by ALL of its members, and then applied – or it will not grow bigger and stronger – nor will it be acceptable for Christ, at His Return! Imagine if Arnold Schwarzenegger decided, back in his professional bodybuilding days, never to exercise his left arm! He never would have won championships, or made it big in motion pictures! Likewise, suppose his left arm had simply refused to participate in any of Arnold’s exercise routines; it would have had a seriously detrimental effect on all the other members, or body parts – one part would have negatively affected the whole body! Such is the Body of Christ; and such are ALL the people whom God adds to that Body (our Assembly, or our local Congregations), as it pleases Him!!! The body must work together in the gym; and the Body MUST work together in the Church of God!!!

God’s System For Making Positive, Godly Change:

The system for making positive change is the same in any field – even in The Kingdom of God! First you THINK about making positive change (Proverbs 23:7 / Psalm 119:15), then you LEARN how to make that change (Psalm 25:4-5, 9-10 / Exodus 33:13 / Psalm 27:11, 86:11, 119:26, 35, 143:10 / Matthew 11:29), then you SPEAK about making that change (Isaiah 26:7 / Proverbs 4:18 / Isaiah 42:16, 52:12 / Luke 6:45), then you go out there and actually DO SOMETHING that makes that change possible (1 Corinthians 4:16, 11:1 / Philippians 3:17-21 / 1 Thessalonians 1:2-10 / 2 Thessalonians 3:1-15 / James 1:19-27 / Jeremiah 11:6-7 / Matthew 7:24-25 / Luke 6:46 / Romans 2:13 / James 2:14-26 / Malachi 3:8-12 / James 4:17)! AND you REMEMBER to REST or as the Bible says to Sabbath (Hebrews 4:1-11 / Malachi 3:16-18)! Unless you begin to keep God’s Sabbaths and ON THOSE DAYS learn how to be “Righteous”, according to God’s definition, and not your own definition: you will never learn how to harness the POWER that comes from truly following Jesus Christ!!! 

What Power Do You Recognize And Fear (Satan: Ephesians 2:2 / Revelation 12:12 or GOD: Psalm 47:1-9 / 1 Corinthians 2:4-16, 4:20 / John 12:31-32 / Matthew 6:13)?

I know of many church goers today, who will warn their children of the very real power of an Ouija Board - to usher in demonic forces into their lives; then in another breath, they will chastise a Christian brother or sister who has developed a bold faith in Jesus’ promise (Mark 11:22-26), as a “name it, claim it” fool!

You can’t have it both ways. Either the spiritual realm has tremendous power on the physical realm, as Christ Himself told us; or it does not! The Truth about the power of Faith-filled words is well established in the pages of Scripture! Satan forces are never more powerful than the mere “spoken” Word of God (James 4:7-8, 10-12)!    

Most Christian churches today, are just pagan imitations of the real Thing. They keep pagan holidays and reject God’s True Holy Days! They teach of an immortal soul that will reside in one of two destinations, when Christ nor His Disciples - never taught any such thing! They teach smooth things to entertain and make parishioners “feel good” about Jesus loving them – until they die and “float off to heaven”, or that they will be secretly “raptured away” before things get really ugly down here on earth!

Instead, churches should be teaching what the Bible says sin really is, that God so hates sin, that He will neither tolerate it, nor the person who engages in sin! They should be Scripturally teaching that the consequences of “Biblical sin” is “Biblical death” (Ecclesiastes 9:1-6), and that death meaning the absence of life, or any conscious thought, or of any future whether in the physical or the spiritual realms!

When God really opens up your eyes to see the difference between His REAL Church or Assembly, and that of Satan’s many “Christian” churches (Matthew 13:11-16); we should be pricked in our hearts at our previous inability to see God’s truth (Acts 2:29, 34, 36-39), and we should realize how our sins have required and caused Jesus to suffer and die for our very own, personally committed sins (James 4:9-10 / Zachariah 12:10)!

------------------------------------------------------------------

Jesus Christ intended for us to follow His example, and activate the Holy Spirit (God’s power supply) within us to do great works; very great works, that were even greater than those He did on earth (John 14:12-14)! How is that possible? How can mere humans do greater things than the Son of Man did while He was on earth?

The simple answer is, because Jesus Christ said we would; so we will!!! But notice how Jesus, the Son of Man, a mere human, who gave up ALL divine abilities to become a human – just like us, so we could one day become just like Him (2 Corinthians 8:9). When you read this Scripture it is clear, Jesus was “poor” like us; He was devoid of His divine abilities as a human. All the miracles He did, He did by FAITH in the Father, and by SPEAKING the Father’s Words (John 8:28-32 / Hebrews 2:16-18)!

If Jesus did all the wonderful things He did, not of Himself, but by the Father’s Power inside Him (by the Holy Spirit), shouldn’t we be able to do the same, if we recognize the Source of that Power, and follow Jesus’ instructions to activate it, by being in Jesus, as Jesus was and is in the Father (John 10:22-30)? The answer is “YES”, we can do these same works if Christ is dwelling inside us through the POWER of God’s Spirit (Mark 16:15-20)!

The Powerful Body of Christ (You and I) should be Boldly going into this cursed world, claiming VICTORY in advance (that’s Faith!), wielding the power to prosper, the power to heal, the power to redeem those around us from the curse (Psalm 47:1-2)! We should be approaching the poor and the sick with the power from God to get them healed (Mark 5:34) and to pay their bills (2 Kings 4:1-7)! If you do not believe you have this power, or are too embarrassed to go out into the world and do this, you are not worthy of the Lord (Colossians 1:10 / Ephesians 4:1-16)!

The followers of Christ in America (which the vast majority of this country, “claim” to be) need to learn how to be BOLD in the name of Jesus again! But you cannot be bold if you have no power! That’s the problem with the “churches” in America today; they have no power anymore to make profound changes in their own families, and in their own congregations – let alone making any type of lasting change in our amoral, decadent society! They are cursed with a CURSE – from God Himself (Read it again with me in Malachi 3:8-12)! God is telling us we will either be POWERFUL, BLESSED CHRISTIANS if we STOP stealing TIME (Sabbath and Holy Days) and MONEY (Tithes and Offerings) from HIM!!! God says to TEST HIM or Prove Him wrong; simply by trying and doing (OBEYING HIM) in these two things! Are YOU Blessed so much, you don’t have room for all the Blessings God has poured out on you? I am! I have so much I have to GIVE IT AWAY and SHARE IT with others! And YOU can be too!!! It’s a PROMISE FROM GOD HIMSELF!!!

Righteous Power:

The Blessings of God, to prosper, to heal, to grow, to be at peace, to love, to be a bright light in a dark world, to be strong against a tremendously powerful dark angel and his hordes; comes from the Divine Source alone (Romans 13:1)! All power comes from God; and He only gives that power to those who are Obedient to His Word and His Law! You can disagree with that statement all you want; but Jesus says you are not getting His Power unless you are OBEDIENT to Him (John 5:21-23 / Romans 9:18 / Exodus 4:21)! You ONLY get The Power of God, from God; when you OBEY the Son, and that same Jesus Christ gives it to you!

That’s why most churches today are just social clubs – nothing more; they don’t possess The Power of God anymore! Church attendance is declining, nationwide, in America. The world seems to have figured out how to produce much better social clubs than the churches can muster! Making and spending money, self-indulgence, sex, drugs, and rock & roll; have a much greater appeal, and seem way more fun, than watered down Christianity – and the churches are too weak to compete with the tremendous allure and power of sin!!!                     

Obedience to God’s Word results in Wisdom, Wisdom from God when employed in every facet of our lives - results in God’s Blessings (the Power to Prosper in the Will of God)! With God’s Blessings comes great Joy; and God adds no sorrows with His Blessings (Proverbs 10:22)!! When we Love God (the way God says we are to Love Him), in obedience to His Calling, we repent, and are baptized, so that we can obtain His Holy Spirit inside us. When we love God - we are separated and removed from this world, from Satan and his authority; we then obtain access to Great Power! Obedience results in Divine Wisdom, Divine Wisdom used by us in our lives, results in Divine Blessings (the Power to Prosper in every situation), and Blessings always result in Great Joy (John 15:7-11)!!!

When we Love God, and are full of His Love, we then share that love with others; we love others as Christ showed us how to Love the Father! We teach others this same system: that Love equals Obedience!!! Obedience results in Blessings, Blessings result in Joy, Joy results in us Loving others even as God Loves us (John 15:12-17)! When YOU are separated from this world (sanctified or set apart as Holy to God) by the very Blood of Jesus Christ, it will make you BOLD! If you are really sanctified by Christ; you had better start acting like it, and stop dishonoring your Savior’s sacrifice by your pitiful, wimpy conduct! Be Bold and Be Powerful in the Name of Jesus Christ!!!

Our Founding Fathers were bold in the victory of Christ. They knew they would prosper in Christ’s promises. They stepped forward in faith, and took on and defeated the most powerful nation on earth at that time; and their army and navy as well! They proved that we as a Christian Nation, a nation in the Body of Christ, are under the Anointing and The Blessing of God (1 Peter 2:9-10 / Psalm 112:1-3)! God has not changed (Malachi 3:6). It is America, and her people who have forgotten their God, His Blessings, and how to speak them into reality through obedience and faith (Romans 4:16-22)!

When America proclaimed Christ as our Sovereign and our Source, we grew greater than any people ever on the earth (Deuteronomy 28:1-2)! When we began to remove Jesus from our national personae, we began to sink like Peter, taking our eyes off Christ (Matthew 14:28-31)!

It is time to forget Religious Correctness, and return to living by every Word that proceeds out of the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4/ Luke 4:4 / Deuteronomy 8:3)!

Discerning Religion From Truth: Something We Must Learn If We Want To Speak Powerful Words From God!

I recently texted a beautiful photo of a mother humming bird feeding her babies meat; I sent it to many of my friends on my cell phone! It was a Bible Study promotion that we posted on-line, reminding folks about keeping the Assembly of the Saints on The Sabbath, and to be blessed by God because of it! One of the texts I sent, was to a Combat Veteran friend of mine, with whom I used to attend church, along with his wife; many years ago. I was surprised by the reply I received back, as my friend had always been positive about the Ministry Texts we sent out. But this time it was a scathing reply from his wife! It seems my friend had recently given his cell phone to his 13 year old daughter, and had not yet notified me of his changed phone number. Now his little girl was instead, getting her father’s messages from me, which Glorified God and taught TRUTH! This in turn prompted the young lady to ask her mother, who is a sun day keeping church-goer; what the seventh day Sabbath really was, and why Jesus and the Apostles kept it on a Saturday! Mom, was not prepared to defend her position to her inquiring daughter, who was now innocently seeing Jesus Christ’s real Gospel message in Scripture for the first time, and had some good questions! The wife then lectured me on how it was “just not proper for a grown man to be messaging a 13 year old other than one’s own children!” I explained I didn’t get the memo on the phone number change, and replied I would not be texting any more Scriptures to her daughter, now that I knew the phone had changed hands! Thankfully, hundreds of other teenagers are still permitted - by their parents; to receive and read, our facebook, cell phone, and e-mail Bible Studies and postings! These parents know the Power of The Word of God, and teach their children to both discern it and use it (Isaiah 55:10-11)!!!

The Word of God and The Power of God:

We can “Name It and Claim It!!!”, You can “Blab It and Grab It!!!”, “Confess It and Possess It!!!”, and you can “Conceive It and Achieve It!!!” These are ALL scriptural concepts based in God’s Truth (Genesis 11:6-9 / Mark 10:52, 11:24 / Matthew 7:7, 9:29). Religious Correctness, like Political Correctness, is a tool of Satan; designed to separate you from The Blessing, by ridiculing the very Words of Jesus Christ (Mark 11:22-26 / Luke 6:46)!

- It is God’s Will… “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God”, (Colossians 1:10).

- God wants us to… call upon Him when we are in trouble, speak His Words, and He will deliver us and honor us! He wants to satisfy us with a long life, and show us His Salvation! (Psalm 91:15-16).

- God will exalt us, make us flourish, and have us bring forth much fruit! (Psalm 92:10-15).

If you are reading, believing, and speaking these words along with us; then the Creator God of the Universe has called YOU to make a difference in your personal life, in your family, in your work place, in your neighborhood, in your country, and in the world around you! You can do exactly what God has planned for you to do! God will see you and I through to the end (Deuteronomy 31:6 / Hebrews 13:5 / Matthew 28:18-20 / Philippians 4:19-20 / Matthew 28:20)!!!

Going from Religion to Reality

We are saved by the Mercy and the Grace of God (1 John 4:7-21)!

If we are to speak the Word of God with Boldness and with Power, we MUST love one another! You cannot be a fish and not swim! You cannot be a Christian and not love!

1) God is LOVE (1 John 4:8)

2) Everyone that LOVES is born of God (1 John 4:7)

3) Everyone that LOVES knows God (1 John 4:7)

4) Those that do not LOVE, do not know God, for God is LOVE (1 John 4:8)

5) The LOVE of God was manifested in God sending His only Son into the world (John 3:16), that through Him (our source of Power - John 15:4-5), we might LIVE (and be Blessed, Healed, and Prosper – Deuteronomy 30:19-20).

6) If we want to live forever, and not die the Second Death and be dead forever; we will LOVE God and others (Revelation 20:6).

7) LOVING God means following His Commandments (John 14:15 / 1 John 5:3 / Matthew 19:16-21).

When we Love God and Love others it puts us in the proper mindset; it organizes our priorities into God’s priorities! We should seek FIRST the Kingdom of God (Matthew 6:31-34), speak His Words, seek His Ways, and walk in the Grace and Mercy that Christ died to show us!

There is no more condemnation for those in Christ (Romans 8:1). We should forget our past sins (God does – Hebrews 8:12), our cares; we are CLEAN, from the Blood of Christ! It is time to walk in the Spirit, to go with God, and speak HIS WORDS with the BOLDNESS and the POWER they were meant to have (Joshua 1:2-9)!

Sickness is of the Devil! Jesus was anointed by God with God’s Spirit (just like we are!), and with ALL POWER (just like we are!), healing ALL that were oppressed by the Devil (just like we can!); for God was with Him (God is with us, in the very SAME way!). See Acts 10:38-40.

The Holy Spirit is a “Gift” (Luke 11:13). A gift by definition is always less than the recipient. Think about this for just a moment. God gives parents children; He does not give children their parents! The Holy Spirit is an awesome gift, like eternal life, it is poured out on those who believe and UNDERSTAND! The Holy Spirit is not a god to be worshipped; it is the POWER God gives to His Children to do Great and Mighty Works (Acts 10:45-48). The Holy Spirit, like a powerful car empowers its driver, empowers God’s Children to do the same things Jesus did on this earth!

The world started with just God and Jesus Christ (John 1:1-4), and the world will end with just God and Jesus Christ (Revelation 21:22-23, 22:13). The Holy Spirit in us (God’s Power) is what allows us to lay hands on the sick and have them recover (Mark 16:18-20). They Holy Spirit in us (God’s Power) is what allows us to tell a mountain to be cast into the sea, and have it obey us (Mark 11:22-26)!

Blessed is the man who honors God with his life, who lives his whole life in faith (Romans 4:5)! When we speak God’s Word, we are speaking with The Voice of God (Isaiah 55:11). Even the mighty angels will obey the Word of God spoken in the earth (Psalm 103:19-21)! We command God’s angels to minister to us and for us, by speaking on the Authority of God’s Word! How awesome is that?! God’s Kingdom rules over all, and so His Word (whether spoken by God or us) will be effective in ALL places of His dominion – That’s Everywhere!

Jesus showed us the power of speaking Faith-filled Words when He cursed the fig tree with just 9 words (Mark 11:12-14, 21-22)!!! All things in this natural world are controlled by things in the supernatural (or the spiritual world which existed before the natural world was created. See Mark 11:28-33)!

Speaking The Word of God: WORDS originating in this world, activate changes in the spiritual world, which in turn, spill over into the physical world!

When we:

- Decide to follow God…

- Hear the Word of God…

- See the Word of God and believe it in our heart…

- Say or Speak the Word of God…

- Act on the Word of God (Step out in Faith, take Action)…

- We will RECEIVE whatsoever we ask! So says the Word of God!

God can flow through a doctor to heal others (chemotherapy / radiation treatments); but YOU can kill cancer with your words, by the Power of God within You! Your words are more powerful (according to Jesus Christ) than sickness, infection, and disease!

What a tremendous Gift, God has bestowed on those who LOVE Him!!!

THERE ARE NO LIMITS FOR THOSE IN CHRIST!!!!

Jesus said we can have whatsoever we ask for! That means there no limits to what we can do or have!!! Amen! All to God’s Glory and Purpose!

You must first Believe, Then SPEAK it; and it WILL BE DONE unto you (Romans 11:29-36)!!!

Jesus did all His miracles by speaking them into being. He was always careful not to be snared by His Words! (Proverbs 6:2 / John 6:2)

You can speak a BLESSING over your fruit trees, your herds, your business, your family, your friends, and your body (Job 12:7-15 / John 14:10-15 / James 5:13-20)!!!!

The Secret of Positive and Negative Words:

Jesus told us we have the POWER to make our WORDS come to pass! That is also why we should not lie, because our words have power (Psalm 15:4 / Exodus 20:16 / Mark 14:27-31, 66-72). Jesus taught us that when we speak negative words, we must then speak positive words afterwards, in order to undo the power of the negative words with the power of positive words (John 21:15-19)!

When we Pray and Believe; we Shall Receive! Reality is created by, and follows the words that we speak (Mark 11:24)!!! This is an awesome Truth of God, written in the pages of your very own Bible; yet it is also a Truth so many today reject, as only wishful thinking!

Did you know God answers our prayers the moment we pray? However, the timing on the delivery, or the receipt of that answered prayer, is always according to God’s purpose! Let’s look at Daniel 9:3-19. Here is a Biblical example of maybe a 3 minute time span, from prayer to prayer realization!

Look with me now in verses: 20-23; here the angel Gabriel is saying that God the Father gave a command to have Gabriel answer Daniel at the beginning of his prayer! Before Daniel can even finish his prayer; Gabriel is commanded to come forth, and show Daniel the understanding of the matter, and to give Daniel the understanding of the vision. Before Daniel can even finish praying, Gabriel travels from God’s Throne to Daniel’s location, and shows up in person, to answer Daniel’s prayer! Wow, angels can travel great distances pretty fast! How cool is that?

Now turn with me to Daniel 10:2-12. Here God commanded that a prayer be answered immediately; but it took 21 days to deliver the realization, or to deliver the answer of the prayer, from the time God gave the command. Why did it take 3 weeks this time, and only 3 minutes the time before?

Let’s look at verse: 13. We can see that Satan, probably upset that God answered Daniel’s prayers so quickly in the previous example; now opposes or withstands the angel sent by God to Daniel. Scripture says this angel then got help from the angel Michael; and yet it still took these two angels 21 days to get past Satan, and to deliver the answered prayer to Daniel! Amazing!

I never understood the battles that go on in heavenly realms, before I started to study God’s Word (v: 20-21)! So the next-time you pray, and are waiting for your answer from up on High, remember these scriptures. There might be a whole bunch of demons and angels fighting it out, so you can have what you asked God for! That’s another pretty awesome Truth! Thank You, Father, for revealing these things to us, by Your written Word (Hebrews 1:13-14 / 1 Kings 22:19 /Psalm 91:9-13 /Psalm 103:20-22 / Daniel 6:22 / Daniel 7:10 / Matthew 4:11)!

The Power of Words is amazing! So is the Power of Prayer! God hears our prayers immediately, and answers them just as quickly; if we are inside His Will, not praying to satisfy our own lusts (James 4:3)! Now do you see why Jesus said we would do greater works than He did upon the earth?

When we truly understand the tremendous Power God has given us through His Son, by God’s spirit dwelling within us, and by our spoken words; we will begin to move mountains all over the United States, and all around the world!!! Amen!

Use The Power God Has Given You!

We should Pray for our National and personal healing, blessings, and prosperity. Pray for the Body of Christ, for the revelation of Divine Knowledge to America. If we do, our WORDS and our PRAYERS, will be answered!

Be Bold, Have Faith in God, and Do Not Quit! “Quitters never win, and winners never quit” (1 Corinthians 9:24-27 / Philippians 3:10-14). What would have happened if Daniel had quit believing that God was going to answer his prayer - on Day 20? His Faith is what kept those angels fighting (Hebrews 1:13-14). Remember Ephesians 3:16-21!!! We have POWER within us – given to us by God! Our destiny is to be filled with the fullness of God (Hebrews 2:5-10)!!!

If you understand the Power of Words, you won’t quit regardless of what you see, or hear around you! We receive WHEN we speak It! All things are possible with God (Mark 9:23)!

You can have WHATSOEVER you ask the Father, in Jesus’ Name (Mark 11:24-26)! Amen! Praise God! If this doesn’t make you a Bold Christian – ready to kick down the gates of the kingdom of darkness, I don’t know what will!

We should be walking, worthy of our calling, pleasing God, being faithful in every good work (being Blessed and INCREASING as we are obedient to what God commands, and INCREASING in the knowledge of God (Colossians 1:10)!

God wants us to have the Full Knowledge of His will, with the Spiritual Understanding to Discern it, Live it, and Walk in it! But we must do this by FAITH (Hebrews 11:6)!!!

Fear Not! For from the first day you set your heart to understand and follow God, your words were heard by Him (Daniel 10:12)!!!

YOU and I are Blessed and Greatly Beloved by God! Let us “Understand the WORDS that God speaks unto us, and stand upright” (Daniel 10:11); let us be BOLD in our LORD, Jesus Christ, and do the job that God has called us to do!!! There is POWER in The Word of God; and inside them that Speak by every Word that proceedeth from the Mouth of God (Matthew 4:4)!!!  Amen!

The First Century Church of God is still alive and well; and we are still about our Father’s Business! We would like to Thank You for joining One Nation Under God Ministries (www.onug.us) today in the Study of God’s Word, and hope that you will continue on with us next week! We so enjoyed having you study and fellowship with us!!! Please stay in touch!

In Jesus Christ’s Mighty Name, Peace!

The sad state of affairs today is that the vast majority of Americans are Bible illiterates (Hosea 4:6). They simply have never read the book which they profess to regard as the “Word of God”. If we are to change this, we must begin using the Bible as our primary source of education, to learn about God and His teachings (Matthew 6:33).

If you have never faithfully kept God’s seventh day Sabbath holy or God’s Holy Days, the way Jesus Christ did – in the flesh, and in the fellowship of other followers of the Son of Man (Hebrews 10:25); we invite you to obediently enter into God’s rest today, and to keep the Feasts of the LORD (Hebrews 4:1-11 / Leviticus 23:1-44)! Contact us to find out where we fellowship and worship God, in your area, on His Sabbath Days (Exodus 31:12-18). We would love to hear from you and help get you started!

Join us on-line each Sabbath and Holy Day at www.onug.us where you can download our Bible Studies, or join us on facebook to listen in to our live webinar each week.

”But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. I and my Father are one” (John 10:26-30).

Christians must learn to read the Bible, interpret the scriptures according to Biblical principles (Isaiah 28:9-10, 13), and begin to apply the precepts they learn in their walk with God. Individual study is essential; coupled with fellowship times of group study, worship, and discussions of personal insights and observations.

We strive, each Saturday, to foster an open and welcoming atmosphere where Spirit led confirmation, clarification, questions, and correction can be made in the fellowship of other students of God’s Word.

One Nation Under God U.S.A. (www.onug.us) is working to unify the body of Christ in the worship of God the Father, in the way Jesus showed us to - in Spirit and in Truth! We strive to promote rediscovery of American History, and renew in current generations the Vision and the Covenant of our Founding Fathers.

“And when He had called unto Him His twelve disciples, He gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease… And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.  Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, Nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat”                     – Jesus Christ (Matthew 10:1, 7-10).
