The Word is sown into the heart.
Now, here’s where I’m going to bust up a lot of Pentecostal churches. The fact is, I don’t have to do
anything to get the answer to my prayer, but just let the seed hit the sower.
If you give me a seed:
X I don’t have to yell at that seed; that seed doesn’t need a song;
X I don’t have to play it music;
X I don’t have to scream at it;
X I don’t have to dance around it or roll on it.
All I have to do is put it in good dirt. In other words, if God’s Word gets in your heart, what God promised
will happen by that process and that process alone. No other antics are required. The only thing you’ve
got to do to get seed to grow is just get it in the ground.
But, we’ve got to understand the ground is NOT our mind. The ground is our heart or our spirit man. And
the Bible says the Kingdom is within us.
So, God sent Jesus to get the sin out, so that the Kingdom could come – which is the Holy Ghost living
inside of me. Now, Jesus said His Word is Spirit. That means, the Spirit and the Word are made out of
the SAME stuff. They have the same DNA.
So, for God to send Word from Heaven, He had to have somewhere in the earth it could go. So, He made
a place called the “Kingdom” inside of man, and so when He sends Spirit stuff out of Heaven, it lands in
Spirit stuff on earth. There’s a process to this thing.
All you need for your prayer to be answered is to get the Word on it in your heart. The problem is when
you hear this, it’s in your HEAD. It’s not in your heart. It’s in your mind. The mind is NOT soil for the
seed. The heart is soil for the seed. So, that’ means when you have heard this, you are
RESPONSIBLE to make the seed travel about 16 inches south [-to the heart]. Which means, IF
the only time you “get” Mark chapter 4, is when I talk about it, then you’ll have it in your head, but you’ll
never get it in your HEART.
Because the way you make seed travel, is you’ve got to SAY it, and HEAR it, and SAY it, and
HEAR it, and SAY it, and HEAR it, and SAY it.
I heard a preacher recently say,
“You can’t hear one Word from God and get a miracle.”
“You’ve got to hear it TWICE.”
“The first time you hear the Word - God said it.”
“But God’s got to HEAR it again.”
I loved it! God’s got to hear Himself say it, and before it happens, He’s got to hear YOU say it. He’s got
to hear earth say what Heaven has said.
When God hears what He has said twice, it’s coming down the pipeline. TWICE. If God can hear it 2 times…
that’s a Word from somebody. If He says it to you and you say it back to Him, that thing will be done on
earth as it is in Heaven. Hallelujah! All He is wanting is for earth to echo what Heaven has spit out.
God, you said, “I was healed!” So, now I say, “I’m healed!” And now, if any 2 agree, let it be done on earth,
by our Father, which is in Heaven.
Say it back, say it back, just say it back at Him. Don’t just let God tell you – you’ve got to ECHO it back.
Then, God will say it again, and they you say it again – and that thing gets to moving back and forth,
travelling through time and eternity, and then, all of a sudden, a miracle breaks forth.
Why? Because you TOOK the Word and you WORKED it until a miracle worked out of you Word.
