Jesus said, “If you abide in Me, and My WORDS abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.” (John 15:7)
So, in other words, it’s not me waiting on God to do it. It’s God waiting on ME to give Him Words that release His permission. God is waiting on me to say something, that gives Heaven an opportunity to move in my world. So, I’ve got to see what God says about my situation and even though I’m in the reality of going through hell, I’ve got to SPEAK the things that Heaven has put in me. And then I see the power of the Word begin to scatter the dark places in my life.
And slowly, as I speak that Word of FAITH over and over, God begins to change my reality, and what I believe becomes what I live, instead of all the other things being what I live.
Do you see what I’m saying? God wants you to use your mouth to create your reality, because as a man thinketh in his heart, so is that man. Why is that? Because you’re going to say what you think.
“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.”
In this verse, we see there are two worlds: “world” and “word”. Creating a world with Words. Two separate places saying the same thing. We have an INVISIBLE world, and we have a VISIBLE world. God said the INvisible one is REAL. And the visible world will LIE to you.
He said the INvisible world is ETERNAL, and He said the visible one is TEMPORARY. The visible world came out of the invisible world. The invisible world always WAS, but the visible one is on a clock. The invisible never had a beginning and NEVER has an end. The visible had a beginning and has an end. And God is telling you, the invisible one you can’t see, is supposed to govern the one you live in.
The invisible world was never meant to govern you, because God knew He built you with 5 senses, and He said, I’ve got to find 1 of them and use them to connect with. I’ve got to take one of their senses and let that be THE sense by which it grabs ahold of Heaven.
HEARING --> I’m going to let Heaven come by HEARING. “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” (Romans 10:17) We live by FAITH, and not by sight.
Here’s the problem: the visible word. The visible was to be ruled by the invisible. The invisible is eternal; the visible, temporary. Everything I’m doing in this one, is momentary, but is going to add me weight in the eternal.
And here’s where FAITH comes in…Faith was never meant to bring things that do not exist into existence. And that is a mindset that has GOT to be broken.
All your needs have been met, and you have been blessed with EVERY possible blessing that you can be blessed with. The problem is, they’re all in the INvisible realm. And the problem is YOU live in the visible one.
”Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who has blessed us with EVERY spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ”
“Every” --> But where is it? Heaven. Doesn’t do me any good.
“And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in GLORY by Christ Jesus”
"Glory" --> See, that’s still an UNseen realm. Something in the glory doesn’t do me any good.
Now, I’m not trying to get something to exist. The Word of God teaches me, when Jesus came, He said, “It’s Finished.” And then He went back and sat at the right hand of the Father. You’ve been blessed ALL you can be blessed and all your needs are met in Him, and they’re in Heavenly places.
Faith is taking what already exists here (invisible realm) and moving it to the visible realm. It’s not something that doesn’t exist and you’re trying to create it; it’s moving something from one dimension to another.
