“For the land which you go to possess is not like the land of Egypt
from which you have come”
In Deuteronomy, God said, “the land you’re going into is not like Egypt”. This is not that - where you’re
going is not like where you’ve been. I’m entering places I’ve never been before. When your life is in
God’s hands, the “No” of God is just a big blessing as the “Yes” of God. Some of you are walking through
too small of doors and He has to shut them.
Faith deals with visible and non-visible. Everything you need already exists. God already had everything
ready that you would need, to finish your life here – waiting on you, when you got here. When you got here,
everything you needed to fulfill your purpose, was ALREADY here.
Look at God’s creative order… He created light, before He created grass. Why? Because grass could not
be sustained without light. So, by the time grass got there, it had everything it needed to sustain it
(survive). He created grass, before He created cattle. So, by the time cattle got here, the cattle had
everything it needed.
God has a creative process. When you showed up, there was no lack. Everything was already provided,
for everything you need to fulfill your purpose. That is RADICAL!
The problem is, it’s in another realm. It’s not really a problem, but rather, a challenge of FAITH.
So, God tucked away all of your blessings in an invisible realm that the Bible teaches is the real one, and
says this one is the subordinate one. That this one is to be ruled by the one you CAN’T see. The one
you can’t see is an eternity. It has no beginning or end. Everything created here was created out of
something in the INvisible realm.
So, I’ve got to take that same principle and apply it to my life. That’s why you NEVER beg God. If
you’re a sinner, you don’t have to beg for what is already in your father’s house. So, we have to change
the way we approach God. The Bible says to come BOLDLY. Why? Because Jesus gave you right to
access. You’ve been given the right. Your needs have been met. Jesus is FINISHED.
But, it is all in an INVISIBLE realm. Faith cometh by hearing. The just live by faith. We live by FAITH,
not by sight. The Bible is now telling us that our dominant sight, the eye, will LIE to me. The Bible says,
what I can see is a liar. And what I hear is true.
So now, the enemy’s job is to erect things in front of my sight, that contradict what I’ve heard. What is
seen is TEMPORARY, and subject to change. But the unseen is eternal and not subject to change.
So, I’ve got to reach in the unseen to change what is in front of my eyes. What I see is lying to me. It is
not an eternal thing. It can change.
If you can see it, it can change. If you aren’t hearing anything, then all you have is what you’re looking at.
And that is a sad way to live. Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. So, what God
tells me is true. What I see is a fact. However, facts are NOT in charge. It comes in 2nd. The facts are
subject to the truth. Because the Bible says He is called above ALL names and His Word.
So, when I get a Word from God about Healing, it takes a higher authority than what I see happening right
in front of my eyes. So, I’ve got to disregard what I see, and SPEAK what I’ve heard. I have believed;
therefore, I have spoken. Don’t speak the mess you see, but speak the Word that has been put in your soul!
How long do I say this? I say it until I see the thing (healing) turn around. And if it ain’t changed yet,
KEEP saying it! Look at your [sickness/disease] and say it until it changes. The Word heals me. You tell
your sickness to go. It shall be done for you if you have FAITH.
If you have faith like a mustard seed… you don’t have to have a mountain of faith. Jesus said, if you have
just a little faith, I will take that and move your mountain and throw it away.
So, God had to create an avenue, by which to get Heavenly things into the earth. He gave us the
mechanism, called FAITH and He had to give us a place of transfer. So, Jesus came, because
everybody is full of sin. Jesus said, I’m going to come and die on the Cross to get the sin out, so that
the Kingdom can come.
