Watch Your Words

Watch Your Words

21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Prov 18:21 (KJV)

”  I’m Just dying to go!” ” You make me sick”! “It tickled me to death”! These are common everyday phrases that we have heard so long you hardly pay attention to them. But these words are corrupt communication, because you don’t want to be sick or die. God didn’t create us to say anything that we didn’t believe or desired to come to pass. We’re made in His image and His likeness and He speaks what he wants into existence and so should we. This is how faith is manifested by speaking into existence whatsoever we desire. Jesus told us that in Mark 11.

22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Mark 11:22-24 (KJV)

    The Lord said we’ll have what we say. Yes, that does mean that we must watch our every word because there are bad conditions that people are bringing on themselves. I know people who say their afraid and you know what? Their afraid. I’ve heard people confess sickness and they always seem to be sick. The same is true for confessing that they are broke and the never seem to have any money, speaking words like these condemn you. The words one speak create situations and circumstances to bring those words to fruition. We’ve been trained almost since birth by the enemy’s demonic system to not regard our words, Jesus told us:

37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Matt 12:37 (NKJV)

A good example of this was years ago I was given an opportunity to be employed by an institution for a term of one year. This job had so many benefits and amenities and the atmosphere was the greatest I had ever been apart of.  After being out of work for sometime and then latching on to this great job, I began to say, “I’m going to keep this job, I’m going to stay here.” I Kept saying this continually and later an opportunity came up where a permanent position became available with a promotion to a higher grade. I interviewed for the job and got it. Now at that time I didn’t know God or the power of your words but my partner at work brought to my attention that I kept saying, I was not going to leave that place and I didn’t. Glory to God, by my words I was justified.

Now that we’re in the kingdom we can take the Word of God  and decree what we want or need. We can go to our Heavenly Father in prayer and ask what we desire in Jesus name and He’ll give it to us. But we must feed on the Word and allow the Word to go down in our spirit and renew our minds. At the point when God’s Word dominates your thinking it will dominate your speech. Don’t complain or tell everybody how bad things are or how bad you feel.  If you continue to declare, “I’m healed, by Jesus stripes or “my God supplies all my needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” that is what you’ll eventually possess. It’s time for the Body of Christ to speak life  and then we’ll be justified! Shalom – BTTIZ 

Closing the Door to the Evil One!

Closing All Doors to the Evil One

3 You shall have no other gods before Me.
4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth;
5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,
6 but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

Ex 20:3-6 (NKJV)

           That scripture is one that should keep any father that’s a believer or keep him focused to walk in the Light of God’s Word. That’s to stay out of sin and the way’s of the world, because it not only affects you but your children-your bloodline. You can open up the door for the destroyer to come in and cause untold damage to your children. He can cause sickness, diseases, demonic behavior, accidents, anything and everything bad. We all know and should  want to walk with the Lord and keep His commandments because of our love for Him. Now obedience has a blessing, because as the head of the family my prayers protect my children. They may not be walking closely in the things of God but my authority places protection over them to a great extent. I believe that runs until they marry and the son becomes the head of his household and the daughter comes under her husband. Now they still have to grow in the Word and do what it says  because the enemy is constantly looking for whom he may devour, but the Lord has placed the man as the watchman over his family. The mother is the next in line of authority and if the only parent she’s the head.

           It’s always a good time to take inventory of our lives and kick the devil out of them. You can simply ask the Holy Spirit if there’s any area in your life that you may have opened a door for the enemy to come in. When He reveals it to you, Repent and bind the devil according to Matthew 18:18, in Jesus name and cancel his operations immediately then release the Blood of Jesus and the angels of God to stand guard over you and your family. Now! Keep the door Shut! Shalom –BTTIZ

The Spirit of God

The Spirit of God

14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:

Romans 8:14-16 (KJV)

If you want to know the answers to life’s questions that may have you puzzled or you may need to make the right decision that will have an important impact on your life. It could be anything from taking a new job or where the Lord may want you to go to minister to others. Well after feeding on the Word to feed your spirit, you need direction and that comes from the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God Himself. Now He’s the Spirit of truth and Jesus said He’ll reveal what belongs to Him to you. He’ll warn you of approaching danger or uncomfortable situations that the enemy has set up against you. He’ll give you the answer to the root of any problem that you may come up against.

All you have to do is pray in the Spirit in tongues and build your spirit up to hear the Holy Spirit speak to you. God’s not trying to hold anything back from you or keep you in the dark, remember He’s the “Father of Light’s”. Jesus spoke this:

13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.

John 16:13 (NKJV)

Tap into the wisdom and knowledge of God, tap into the Holy Spirit. Shalom. -BTTIZ – Blow the Trumpet in Zion!
