The Power of the Word

March 23, 2012

The Word is important.  Nothing on earth has the power that the Word of God has.  We who are Born Again have access to this Miracle-Working, Life-Changing Power.   This is a present day reality.  God has spoken and continues to speak to us through His Word.  His Word has the anointing to accomplish what God desires.  We who Believe have access to that Anointing.  The anointing is the Miracle Working power of God.

God said:  “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:  it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish  (ASAH:  Heb:  To do or To make;  to create)  that which I please and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it…” Isaiah 55:11  When God sends His Word out it brings something back.  When YOU send His Word out in faith, it brings something back.    God’s Word is a Carrier.  It Carries stuff.  It brings things in and it takes things out.  God’s Word will never “not do” something… it ACCOMPLISHES (Creates, Makes, Does; Heb. Asah )

God’s Word will accomplish what pleases God.  What is it that pleases God?  Jesus said:  “Fear not little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom…”  Luke 12:32  God wants to GIVE YOU the Kingdom.  God is a Giving God and it is His giv­ing that brings Him pleasure.

Notice:

1.  Faith comes by the Word there­fore Faith is dependent on the Word.

2.  God is revealed by and through the Word.

3.  Sinners are Born Again by the Word.

4.  Saints have their minds re­newed by the Word.

5.  Believers are Sanctified by the Word.

6.  The Body of Christ is chas­tened by the Word.

7.  The human spirit is recreated by the Word.

8.  The Word overcomes the devil and hell.

9.  The Word working in us makes us like Jesus

The Bible tells us that the Word is the Alive and full of Power.  Hebr. 4:12   For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the di­viding asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a dis­cerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The Word is alive.  The Word is loaded and ready to produce.  The Word has Heaven-Potential in it.  Whatever is in Heaven is in the Word.   There is Life in the Word.  There is Healing in the Word.  There is deliverance in the Word.  There is prosperity in the Word.  The Word is God.  When it is believed and spoken with the mouth, in faith,  it will pro­duce what God produces.  There are no restrictions in the Word… nothing is held back that is good.   “For the Lord God is a sun and shield:  the Lord will give grace and glory:  no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly…” (Psa 84:11)

Let’s establish some foundation principles:

1.  We BELIEVE that the Word of God is  indeed the WORD OF GOD.   The Word of God is Inspired, Inerrant, and Infallible.  It is authentic and it is alive.  It is full of miracle-working power.  It is God-Breathed and it is eternal.  It will never pass away.  It is with us now and it will be with us in heaven.  Holy men of God were inspired and moved on by the Holy Ghost and what they spoke and what they wrote be­came the written Word of God.  2Pet. 1:21   For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.  That record is com­plete and suf­ficient and it is the Message of the Church and to the Church today.   It is God’s Word and it is relevant and up-to-date.  It needs nothing added to it and it needs noth­ing changed in it.  It is perfect and it is finished.

2.  The Word of God is the Will of God. It is His Testament… it is what He desires for His creation.  The Word reveals His Eternal Purpose for the Earth, for the Heavens, for the Nation Israel,  for the Church and for the Believer.  The Word is the written down will of God. If you know the Word of God you know the will of God.  If you do not know the Word of God you do not  know the Will of God.

3.  The Word of God is the key to bringing God’s Will to pass on earth.   When we believe the Word, say the Word and do the Word, we bring heaven to earth.  Jesus prayed for the Will of God to be done in earth as it is being done in heaven.  When the Word prevails, heaven’s power is re­leased on earth and God’s will is done.  God’s will can be accomplished only through the Church.  The Body of Christ can accomplish the Will of God only by Doing the Word of God.  When we do the Word we accomplish the Will of God.

4.  The Believer can live only by the Word.  Deut. 8:3 …that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live

Matt. 4:4   But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that pro­ceedeth out of the mouth of God.

If you LIVE to the fullest poten­tial of God’s plan, you will do so only through the Word.  The Word is able.  The Word is adequate.  The Word is enough.  The Word will tell you what is to come and will prepare you for it.  The Word will get you strong and keep you strong.  The Word will drive out sickness, disease, infirmity and weakness and the Word will keep you well, keep you whole, deliver you, and keep you in prosperity.  The Word will convict you and chasten you.  It will cut off the ex­cess and expose the unnecessary.  It will starve your doubts and feed your faith.  It will make you ready to meet Jesus.  It will give you Life and Life more Abundantly.
