Our Words Mean Life or Death!
The words we say mean life or death. That is what the scriptures tells us.
There is no middle ground. What we say has a huge affect on our future and the
future of those we speak to; and their words affect us!
Romans 10:10 For with the heart one believes and is
justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
The greatest miracle that we can have is to be saved. We need the faith of God
to believe and then we confess with our mouths what we believe and we are saved.
It's by grace.
And this being the greatest miracle that can take place
means that healing, deliverance and doing the works that Jesus did are minor
compared! We somehow don't think of them being lesser miracles so we don't
exhibit the faith needed to see them take place, but that doesn't change the facts.
John 14:12 Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever
believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these
will he do, because I am going to the Father. 13 Whatever you ask in my
name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.14
If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it".
Everything that God or Jesus says is true. When Jesus prefixes a statement with
the words "Truly, truly", it's to let you know that it's guaranteed and vitally
Whatever we ask for in Jesus' name He will do. Other passages like Mark 11:22-24
fill out the details and show that it's must be according to His will and done in
faith, never doubting. Our faith filled words are of great effect! When people
doubt what God says or think it's not a matter of faith (you just have to keep your
fingers crossed!) then they will not have what they ask, but if you walk in faith you
WILL move mountains!
Many deceive themselves by thinking that their unbelief is humility! We can easily
visualize our unbelief as humility by telling ourselves that God in His sovereign
will is not allowing us to have what we ask for, so we have to bear with it. But
Mark 11:22-24 tells us the truth.
Mark 11:22 And Jesus answered them, Have faith in God.
23 Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be taken up and
thrown into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he
says will come to pass, it will be done for him. 24 Therefore I tell you,
whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
The starting point is based on exhibiting the faith of Jesus,
