THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
Galatians 5:25 NKJV “If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.”
Means: The vista : a view from with we see and remember things from, which we see Gods word from and through, will determines every decision and action where we walk as Kings and Priests of our lives.
There is a way in which Kings Reign;
Their position & posture – all authority and dominion
Their knowledge & understanding – his advisory counsel
Their command of power – How they speak
“Words can inspire. And words can Destroy…Choose yours well.” —Robin Sharma
We believe what we tell ourselves…And we believe what others say, too.
Remember your position reveals your condition. And your condition exposes you position, by how you speak,
The company we keep is imperative to dominion & reign. When we are in the presence of the Holy Spirit, He talks to you and reveals the will of the Father to us by speaking the will of the Father to us. It’s not his will but the fathers will. When we have been in His presence, the Holy Spirit will mentor you, you will find you begin to speak differently, words of faith and with a holy authority and confidence.
- Trying to change your confession with out the work of the Holy Spirit working in your heart will result in hypocrisy.
- The content of your heart inadvertently reveals where you are ruling from.. Remember speaking reveals where you are.
Whenever you are in a position where you do not know what to say, best to remain quiet and worship.
- Changing the atmosphere. The atmosphere will change your heart your heart will change your thinking and your thinking will change your words and your words will change the atmosphere.
- Words are not a channel for enlightenment but a tool to alter the atmosphere lift up your hands and “decree”Not “declare”. To “declare” is to state (out loud) a fact; to “decree” is to issue an authoritative command.
Ween ourselves off the baby food eg. I need you to pray for me, I just can’t, the temptation is too much – uh uh… no thank you, leave me alone. No temptation is beyond your ability to resist, most times.
I Corinthians 13:11 NKJV “ When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”
- Gods Instruction for us
Ephesians 5:18 NKJV “And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,”
Being fill with the spirit will cause us to speak
Ephesians 5:19-20 NKJV “ “speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,”
Say what Jesus says over you: be a spokesperson for yourself and speak OVER your destiny, or it will never come if you don’t take charge of it ie. Say:- “God is working things out for my good,
“I have everything I need to do his good work and his good will.” “The work of God will not suffer, God will bring people around to help us.” “We have a supernatural supply,”
- Kings reign through their words
They maintain a position and a posture.
Psalm 141:3 NKJV “Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips.” SPEAK AS SOMEONE WHO IS IN COMMAND
Gods standard for maturity and perfection —‘Is the extent which you speak over yourself is the extent which you will gain mastery over your speech’ or personal dialogue or conversation.
When you get around the Holy Spirit your language changes and you begin to speak… referring to tongues but praying in the spirit builds up your faith and confidence and you will talk differently. God is fighting for me, last week we sang you make me brave. Sometimes we don’t feel brave but when we get in the presence of God we command with authority. Noticing how when you are confident about something you are able to charge the air; fill an bleak atmosphere with energy, a splash of color, the fragrance of hope, melody and songs.
Acts 2:4 NKJV “And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
And they were filled with power
Why is it called rainmaker?
The term rainmaker refers to a culture in many Native regions and cultures.It was believed that a person could mystically cause clouds to form followed by rainfall.
Today, the term rainmaker is widely being used to categorize any person who possesses the ability to bring more success, when it comes to returns and sales.
Rainmaking – dating back to ancient times is based on the belief that certain individuals possess the ability to communicate with the elements and spirits. They are known as Rain Makers, who use their connection with the spirits to bring rain and alleviate droughts. Through chanting incantations.
Ephesians 5:18 talks about Godly and Devine and anointed words that will open the the windows of heaven with a down-pour of His spirit that will change your atmosphere you live in..
Ephesians 5:19 NKJV “Speak to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord,”
Ephesians 5:19-20 AMP “Speak to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, [offering praise by] singing and making melody with your heart to the Lord; always giving thanks to God the Father for all things, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”
Paul teaches the church in Ephesus how a man under the influence of the spirit lives. How the atmosphere he lives in will produce strange and superior results, an illumination when speaking by the spirit.
An important biblical principal and my prayer for you is that you will produce God inspired dimensions in your Christian experience, that God will grant you access to spiritual illumination while you are walking by the Spirit. (not one of falling under the spirit but one of speaking by the Spirit.)
Acts 2:2-4 and began to speak.
The natural man – not in Christ have not gone thru the new birth
Carnal man – driven by impulses and sensory things
Spiritual man- reigns or operates from the realm of the spirit, A spiritual man is one that is totally submitted to the authority of word of God. He is submitted to the authority of God in any and all matters of their destiny. Submitted to the authority of God, not a selective submission.
You are a spiritual man to the degree that the word of God becomes the view from which you see and interpret things and that your impulses are completely pro-scripture
To be a spiritual man you must’ve mastered the art in the similitude of that of a wife submitting to her husband that you submit to the influence and the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
Many believers, including preachers, businessmen; that includes church people, who are born again, who genuinely love Jesus, cannot say based on these requirements that they are spiritual. They have not submitted to the authority of scripture and have not submitted to the authority of the word of God to guide them in every and all matters and then no. 2 they have not submitted to the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It is impossible to be a spiritual man without the ministry of the word and without the ministry of the Holy Spirit. The two biblical provisions that translate ordinary men to become spiritual.
Paul’s apostolic work to visit churches, would go to regions to mentor and teach them on various aspects of kingdom life. In his lectures, discussions in person or in his letters he wrote from prison or other, to strengthen the believer. Then the letters would be passed onto to other regions and they would have access and they would be strengthened and he taught us that for a spiritual man who is exercising kingdom authority and dominion;- when the Spirit of God comes upon you he influences your entire life but has His primary place … listen, his primary jurisdiction for your transformation and translation is your words.your mouth. Your tongue, it is interesting that out of all the parts of your body that He can influence:- he is more interested in a man’s words and in a man’s speaking.
Psalms 50:23 AMP “He who offers a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving honors Me; And to him who orders his way rightly [who follows the way that I show him], I shall show the salvation of God.””
The Bible says who so offers praise glorifies me to him. He that orders his conversations aright. I’ll show salvation to the one who does so, he is the one who will see the salvation of the Lord.
Ecclesiastes 5:6 KJV “Suffer not thy mouth‘to cause thy flesh to sin’; neither say thou before the angel, that it was an error: wherefore should God be angry at thy voice, and destroy the work of thine hands?”
Do not allow your mouth to cause your flesh — that is your body to sin?! That means that
- Your body is at the mercy of your mouth and then neither say to the angel it was an error I made
- Don’t say ‘oops’ that was a mistake to say, to get off from what you said: – He is clear that we are to train and cultivate our words according to what we want them to do…
Your entire body is at the mercy of your speech – and will follow when you get the speech right.
Train and Culture our-selves by the words that you speak, saying words that you didn’t mean. Then trying to erase them with a feeble apology for a lack of self control, with angels as your witnesses?
There are consequences the Bible tells us. In Ecclesiastes we see principals of dominion that where the word of the king is ‘ There is Power’
The church of Jesus is a place for the maturity of believers. Which means that when a believer submits himself to training, to mentorship, to the doctrine of Jesus. Among many things that happen to you, is to ‘Encounter the ways of the Spirit. You must understand the culture and the modus a operandi of the kingdom if you are to excel and to reign in this Kingdom. You are not to use ‘Luck and Chance and Emotions.
- There is a way that kings reign.
Revelations 5:10 says that we have been made unto God Kings and Priests and He says that we are supposed to reign. Many of us have not been well taught so well and have continued to program all kinds of failure and defeat and pain to our Christian experience. Where the word of a king is there is power…
- Priests and Kings-
Ecclesiastes 8:4 KJV “Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?”
In Africa and other regions of the world there are people who study and are trained to be Rain-Makers. Through the decades passed down from hundreds of years they have perfected the art of manipulating climates through divination of a kind namely in Nigeria, especially Kenya. A tv documentary recorded that word bring the rain with their words and incantations. Eyewitnesses said they could make a sunny day in a matter of minutes be heavy with clouds and then begin to bring the rain down. As one person told of how on market days the rain clouds would come but be hold the rain for one or two hours until the market was over and everyone was gone. After which there was &n avalanche of rain. Similarly it occurred to me that believers experience the same thing as far as dominion is concerned. Rainmakers by demonic agency even weak men could access the windows of the realm of the spirit and that they could use enchantments and divination to do something to a physical climate and make rain come.
Forget the rainmakers let us read from the Bible about Elijah an authentic Rainmaker that stood in the prophetic Authority and spoke over the heavens, not in a radio studio or in the presence of people who know how to work with climate patterns etc. Elijah made a decree to the heavens and he said there would be no rain for a space of three and a half years. Look how intimidating this statement was because no matter who you were you could not undo the decree. Until Elijah came back and said this rain is going to come back and the Bible says he prayed and prayed and prayed and then he saw a cloud like a man’s fist. He then told Ahab to saddle up his chariots to Israel.
If through divination you can change climates without consulting whether or not people, villages are in or not in democratic agreement, including businessmen. Then it is within every believers jurisdiction and we together can program a climate of spiritual possibilities over yourself, Such that no matter what is happening in Egypt, Goshen can be different. You can program a rainy season or a dry season. BUT
There is a secret in the Kingdom!
Believers and Kings must understand the power of their words. And the power of speaking as far as programming spiritual climates are concerned.
Proverbs 12:14 NKJV “a man shall be satisfied with the good fruit of his mouth and the recompense of a man’s hand shall be rendered unto him…”
that means that satisfaction does not come from a man’s job, a man’s satisfaction does not come from his mind alone, the Bible says he shall be satisfied by the fruit of his mouth
Proverbs 18:20-21 NKJV “ 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.”
They shall produce what they speak, they that love death will benefit and they that love life will benefit, which shall come through the words of their mouths.
Our teachings of faith declare that it took Words to frame the earth and from that we understand the realms of the spirit are designed with words. This means that the earth responds to words. We look like Who and What gave birth to us, therefore words will sustain us according to
Hebrews 11:3 NKJV “By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.”
So that means the things which are seen are not made with the things that are visible or do appear John 1:3 NKJV “All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.”
God made everything there including you and I. When the spirit of God came into your life, His purpose and intention was to make you a people of character. That is your dominion principally depends on ‘your mastery as far as speaking is concerned, that there is a relationship between your ability to speak prophetically and in sync with the Word of God and the Will of God and your manifestation.’
Believers often find themselves programming ill’s. The Bible says to not cause your flesh to sin because of your mouth. Now every culture and region I know of among many things unite people with the language binding regions together. We call it tongues or tribes.
Meaning that there is a talk that brands people together culturally speaking. There may be other things ie facial expressions physiology, history… but principally speaking you a person by their dialect/slang/jargon
American or British or Aussie etc
The same way you know a believer by their speaking. You know unbelievers or nonbelievers by their speaking. Their tongue is a revealer, that means just by listening someone you can evaluate many things about him without even meeting them.
That means if language reveals culture. It then means ‘The Kingdom’ should have a culture and a way to communicate, that if I hear you speak in a certain way I can look at you and say aah you are from JHB there is a kind of speaking, from cape town there is a kind of speaking. You both speak English but you are from SA, one is from England. And one is from Australia. There is a way that a believer should speak that immediately when a fellow believer hears you, knows that this is a child of God. You don’t need to probe and find out if they are born again, that is important but the language should reveal the culture, no matter where you are you can greet and be United in identity, and a manner in which you do things.
Speaking reveals many things, but more importantly speaking’s program many many things, science proves this and agrees with Faith life that words are important.
Many of us find ourselves in snares which did not come by a demonic agency alone. It came because of an ignorance. Knowing that every word you speak has an affect in the realm of the spirit and associates you with an influencing atmosphere which affects your outcome, by working for you or working against you. So if we are to be satisfied with the fruit of our mouth or lips. The second thing that binds us together are cliches slogans linguistic expressions. Ie when people get together and joke or banter … the more insulting or offensive they become intending it to be a joke… familiar spirits wait to pounce on these words and become sponsors of linguistic things that have rested on regions and people sociologically.
Whatever you say is recorded in the realm of the spirit. Many of the things we say train us to behave in a certain way regionally, nationally and geographically.
Remember the rainmaker eg. The clouds are summoned to fill with water, at the right opportunity will pour. Or the rain-clouds can be full with water but be held back. Words have the same affect— negatively programming the psychology of a child or Marriage or finances or healing or community or nation creates a posture of failure. Ie stupid, useless, weak, it’s a serious matter, saying it doesn’t matter, because it does. Because the realm of the spirit records every word and creates an atmosphere. The truth Kingdom Ladies and kingdom gentlemen you reign by the dexterity of your speech.
The Bible teaches us to be aware of what we say, you have the Holy Spirit in you, therefore you have power and anointing, so when you speak your words have the power and ability to create whatever you say… words create an atmosphere for your words to live.
That’s why when you say you hate a person, they idiots, words of sedition( speech that incites), dissension( disagreement that leads to discord) effects people and their lives and the atmosphere that we all have to live in. God is very clear about how to speak! And the atmosphere you create around what you say. Jesus knew the power of prophetic implication which reveal heaven’s culture and program of the spiritual climate to come. He said destroy this temple and after three days I will build it. Jesus knew the implication of the power of his words. Words program spiritual climates and possibilities.
Saying things and fobbing them off as this just how we speak but when peoples behavior begins to reflect the reckless and abusive behavior associated with what you have been saying over them then you need you stop and think and change what you has been subconsciously programmed with reckless words, ( there is an anointing on our words when spoken in faith) positive or negative, like a spiritual rain-maker you are programming you spiritual clouds, when the clouds are full it will rain what you have been summonsing from the spirit realm.
SHALOM! Think of the fathers from Abraham to Isaac, Isaac to his sons. Moses to Joshua, they would bless the generations with the words that the spoke. They would summons the heir and either bless. The heir would bow his head and receive the blessing or the curse from those words. They would be summoned with emotion mixed with belief and produce after its kind. In the inheritance instance of Isaac he cursed Esau and blessed Jacob, which was not how it was meant to be but his words carried the weight of his will and it couldn’t be reversed.
Words are powerful, when someone speaks into your heart you receive it and believe it, it affects how you act and behave or respond to them, just by what they spoke over and to you. The earth was created in two days… he didn’t negotiate saying we are going to fix this darkness. He just spoke to it! Let there be Light! Then it was time to make man. He said “ let us make man in Our image and likeness.
It took words for you to be saved.
Names are powerful. Storm?? Names are an identification of who you are to be. God being the Creator is the one who knows how to use words, not to just inform people of what He is doing but to empower us to be like He is … light and multiplication and power and peace and joy, wholeness.
Jabez changed his name, God changed Jacobs name.
Matthew 12:34 – 35
Jesus is speaking to the people saying you brood of vipers, inferring that they say one thing and mean another.
You speak evil and good out of the same mouth you pray and bless with.
Your speaking will always be a reflection of your nature. Out of the abundance of the heart … words are framed and formed
Train, Cultivate and Program
*Creating an atmosphere for your words on purpose
Revelation 12:11 KJV “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
*Filling the clouds with water and summonsing the rain.
Ephesians 5:18-20 NLT “Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts. And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
The rain came
1 Kings 18:1 KJV “And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth.”
And when the rain came Elijah said to him go run get ur chariots, go ahead of the rain
God spoke in Isaiah 44.3, in Joel, Matt 33 that he would pour out his spirit, at least 15 other scriptures foretelling that he would pour out his spirit when the time was right it happened…
Acts 2:1-4 NKJV “When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
WHEN GOD SPEAKS IT COMES TO PASS… His sayings are true.
For you to have a relationship with Jesus means all you have to do is believe with your heart that Jesus came to forgive you of your sins and confess with you mouth, making Him Lord over your life and begin an eternal relationship with Him…
only He can save us, by accepting Jesus as your Savior and confessing it with your mouth, your spirit man is regenerated in Him.
This will change the atmosphere of your current spiritual life as you begin your new life and spiritual journey with Jesus as Lord. Jesus come into my life, forgive my sins and be my Lord.
