THE POWER OF “THE WORD”!
In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the word was God. The same, was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. (1 John 1 :1-4) The Word has all power in heaven and in earth (Matthew 28 :18) and has all power over all flesh (John 17:2). The Word was sent by God to the earth (And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,1 John 1:14 ), to walk in mens’ steps and to die for mens’ sins and to take the place of sacrifice of sin before God so that men could come back to God and have again fellowship with Him.(Eph.2:8,9)
The Word was born in a stable because their was no room for Him. He was a
King (King of Kings) but never lived in a palace because His kingdom is not of this world but in the hearts of men. He came to set men free from the power of sin and death. He was manifested (by God) that He might destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3: 8). HE IS THIS WORD, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD.
The Word has an enemy who was cast out of heaven, the devil. (Isa.14: 12, 13)
The devil came to steal, kill and destroy. (John 10:10)
When men disobeyed God, the devil stole his God given authority(Gen.3:13). Satan’s desire is to see men worship him instead of God. (Rev.13: 15).
Satan knew the power of the Word because he seen it in heaven (Luke 10: 18).As soon as the Word was borne (present) on the earth satan came to …. kill the Word: “For Herod will seek the young child to destroy him” (Mat.13-16) and slew all the children under two years old that were in Bethlehem. As the Word grew in spirit satan came to.. steal the power of the Word: And the devil said unto Him, “ If thou therefore wilt worship me , all shall be thine”. But Jesus said, “It is written”, and it broke the power of the devil .(Math. 4)
When God’s time was fully came, satan came to …. destroy the Word:
“And after they had mocked him, they took the rope off from Him, and put his own raiment on him, and let him away to crucify him” (Mat.27:31).
When the Word died in the flesh it was resurected in the spirit and came to visit the devil and his demons in Hell, demanding the keys of Hell and death. The Word , Jesus, gave men his authority back over his enemy, the devil.(Rev.1:18) The devil was caught in his own, “craftiness”. He does not know God’s purposes, timing or plan and God is in full control. In John 7:30 it says, No man laid hands on Him because His hour was not yet come.
Neither do we know God’s plan for our lives (only a step at the time) : Man’s goings are of the Lord; how can a man then understand his own way ?(prov.20:24) That is why we must obey so that God can fulfill His plan through us. Jesus humbled himself and became obedient unto death even the death on a cross. (Phi.2:8).
And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him. (Hebr.5:9) Obedience is better than sacrifice. (1 Sam.15:22) The devil could not steal, kill or destroy the Word because it was sent by God, and walked in obedience to God under His leading: that stripped the devil of his power and authority. The devil is still on the earth today and he came to steal, kill and destroy: men and the (written) Word, which can save men from their sin .(Rom.1:16)
Satan came to steal …. the (written) Word out…. of the schools, out of the homes of the people out of the government offices to replace it with his power but his kingdom fails and his power is broken at the cross once and for all.To God be the glory.
Satan came to kill … the (living) Word by taking from it or adding to it (Rev.22: 18,19) and causing men to reason over the Word with their minds instead of responding to it with their spirit. (Rom.8:7,8)
The power of God is in the WRITTEN WORD and the SPOKEN WORD
(THE WORD OF FAITH WHICH WE PREACH, Rom.10: 8) the devil tries to break the authority of the Word from many churches using church leaders to twist the Word by reasoning in their
minds and flesh (homosexual issues etc.),instead of responding from their spirit to the Word.(Rom.8:7) The devil wants to take THE WORD out of the places of government authority because he wants to bring forth his authority in this land and that does not mix with the authority of THE WORD. THE WORD was sent by God to come to live in the hearts of his people, his body, the church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (Mat.16: 18, Hebr.12:11-8)
DO NOT MIX YOUR CHRISTIAN WALK WITH SIN. (Math.6: 24)
THERE WILL BE NO COMPROMISE IN HIS CHURCH: YOU EITHER BELONG TO THE WORD OR YOU ARE A PART OF THE WORLD. SEPERATE YOURSELVES!
Satan lost the battle at the cross so will he lose the battle when we carry our cross and walk in obedience to God representing His body on earth (Hebr5:9).
Are we carrying our cross today?
Let us do a new inventory of our lives in this end time hour and let us not be deceived but carry the REAL cross and preach the REAL Word so that we can walk in the REAL power of the one who REALLY died for us.
Take your right place of authority in God. Do not sell your rights to the devil again like Adam did but seek first His kingdom. Heaven and earth shall pass my words shall not pass away. (Mat.24:35)
REVIVAL DOES NOT COME WITHOUT THE CONCEPTS OF REPENTANCE AND JUDGEMENT OPERATING IN THE HOUSE OF GOD AS WELL!
