If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. Romans 10:9-10.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:
You must stop seeing yourself as limited to go beyond what you have. You have to see past what you have to Me as your source. When Elijah asked the widow of Zarephath to make him a cake of flour and some oil for him in a time of famine, she saw lack for she was raised in the world system, as most are, and she saw herself as limited to the one bit of flour and small amount of oil she had in her jar and jug, she saw lack and death and wanted to hang on to the bit she had. But Elijah lived at another level, he lived in the Kingdom system by the Abrahamic Covenant, that is, the BLESSING of Abraham, of which he was a participant by birth. And he was My prophet by faith. And if you even give a cup of cold water to a prophet because he is a prophet, you get a prophet’s reward, which is provision for the vision. And he gave the widow a word from Me and she chose to believe it, “ Then Elijah said to her, “Do not fear; go, do as you have said, but make me a little bread cake from it first and bring out to me, and afterward you may make for yourself and for your son. For thus says the Lord God of Israel, ‘The bowl of flour shall not be exhausted, nor shall the jar of oil be empty, until the day that the Lord sends rain on the face of the earth.’” So she went and did according to the word of Elijah, and she and he and her household ate for many days. The bowl of flour was not exhausted nor did the jar of oil become empty, according to the word of the Lord which He spoke through Elijah.” 1 Kings 17:13-16. Do you see? She acted upon My Word and she got the result that was in that Word.
Don’t be afraid. I have you covered. You do not need to hoard to have provision. Give and it shall be given to you. She went from the world system to the Kingdom system. And it is My good pleasure to give you the Kingdom. Just start giving and you will be set free to live in a higher level. But don’t random sow. Target your seed. Pray over your offering and designate what you are sowing it for.
My Kingdom is a government that is established on laws and if you operate in those laws you tap into all the benefits of the Kingdom. You do not need to operate in fear. On the Cross, Jesus declared, “It is finished.” My Son has done all that needs to be done and I have given you the victory in Him. And to you who believe in Him, all My promises are “yes” to you in Him. Jesus told you that He has given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and all the forces of the enemy. And nothing will harm you. Because I have given you authority and the power is in you.
The war is over. The battle is over. Christ has given you the victory. It is finished. You are seated with Christ in heavenly places. You can take authority over the devil and his demons. You can trample the devil underfoot, but too many of you are not enforcing your Kingdom rights and are not releasing My authority in your life.
Faith puts you in position legally to exercise authority. Too many of you are not exercising the authority I have delegated to you as followers of My Son. And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which you must be saved. Acts 4:12. You keep begging Me to use My power to do something for you, but I have done it in Jesus, and then He delegated His authority to you, and I delegated My power to Him. So through believers My power is released into the earth to heal, deliver, bless, provide, and make rich. The problem is most of you are not releasing it.
Fear is thinking it is not finished and I still need to do something and that you are not above but beneath. But Jesus said, “It is finished.” You can relax in delegated authority. Legally, you have been given an inheritance as joint heirs with Christ. But believing in your heart is only the first part of faith. You have to understand how the Kingdom operates. Too many people base what they believe on experiences and not on My Word. If you don’t understand how My authority flows into the earth realm through you, you may be frustrated in having a manifestation of My power in your life. Kingdom is delegated authority. Kingdom refers to government and law. The forty days My Son spent with the disciples after I raised Him from the dead, He taught Kingdom. Acts 1:3. There is a difference between knowing I am God and knowing how to operate in the Kingdom. The good news of the Kingdom must be preached to all the nations. It is all about the Kingdom and the Shabbat rest. There is a sabbath rest for My people. A place where you have more than enough. There is a double portion in the Covenant. Things are not being hidden from you; they are hidden for you. I tell you in the first
You gather by assignment by revelation. Peter did not leave Jesus to work a job to get the money to pay the temple tax. By revelation from My Son, he went and caught a fish, and the first one he caught had a coin that was double the temple tax in value in his mouth.
Do not talk about not having money. Do you still not understand? Painful toil is not the only way, that is the earth cursed system, to provide for your needs. You have missed many opportunities to grow and increase.
Just do what Jesus did. He operated in complete faith and He released the Kingdom to change situation. How did He do it? Peter asked him that question when Jesus had taken dominion over a fig tree. And Jesus explained, “Have faith in God. Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it will be granted him. Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you. Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone.” Mark 11:22-25.
Let Me break this down and use a second witness as well, Romans 10:8-13: “But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”—that is, the word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in justification, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him will not be disappointed.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, abounding in riches for all who call on Him; for “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.””
The first step to releasing the authority of My power to manifest My promises in your life and the lives of those around you is to have faith in Me. And faith comes by hearing and hearing My Word until you are fully persuaded that what I said is true. But a heart full of faith has not taken you to the step of releasing that faith. The spirit of faith is you believe in your heart and speak with your mouth. The mouth speaks from the heart’s abundance.
Many believers are filled with faith but they have never released it into the world.
So look again. You believe in your heart and this results in justification. You have been put in right standing with Me and have accessed the Kingdom and all the benefits thereof. You have become a citizen of Heaven and you have delegated authority to use My authority. You have submitted to My authority and thus have received authority over that which is under you.
So you believe in your heart resulting in righteousness, and then you confess with your mouth resulting in salvation. The New Testament was written in Greek, and salvation is “sozo,” which means salvation, healing, wholeness, deliverance, rescue, and provision. In other words, the solution to every situation. But you see that you must say it, you must decree a thing before the manifestation of it comes. You must call it in to the earth system from Heaven. You must bind on earth what is bound in Heaven and release on earth what is released in Heaven. You pray My Kingdom into the earth by your words, not just by holding faith in it in your heart and then speaking something entirely different. You do not put a light under a bushel basket but you put it on a stand where all in the house can see it and benefit from its light.
Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and ACTS on them, will be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock. Everyone who hears these words of Mine and does not act on them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. The rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and it fell—and great was its fall.” Matthew 7:24-27.
Hearing and believing in the heart is good but nothing will happen unless you act on My Word by declaring it as the result in your circumstances instead of just declaring the circumstances, that is, telling Me how awful everything is and you are sure to be defeated this time if I don’t intervene. But I have already come down and intervened in the person of Christ. And another action to take on My Word is to sow a seed (an offering) towards your harvest.
So, you have faith in Me, that is, you learn what My promises are and you become fully persuaded that what I say I do and then you show your faith by decreeing My Word as the result to your present situation. For example, if you have been sued in court, you do not cower in fear and declare how nasty the other side is and malign them. You do not point your finger in blame and respond in anger and certainly you do not speak the dire result that you are fearing. It is as good as lost at that point and you have no one to blame but yourself. You are the prophet of your own life.
And you see this from the passage in the Gospel according to Mark. First you heart is filled with faith and then you tell the mountain in front of you (whether it be physical ailment, financial ailment, emotional ailment, or freedom form financial bondage) and you tell it what to do with your mouth, using My Words which are in your heart by faith, and it will obey you. Submit to Me, resist the devil and he will flee from you. And submission is keeping and speaking My Word. Target your words for the result you want. Use your words, do not abuse yourself with your words. And finally, you see the next step is to believe you receive what you ask for before it manifests in your life and it shall be yours. And then I tell you to forgive if you have anything against anyone. Faith can only work by love. Handle with love and your faith will do what it is meant to accomplish every time.
I love you. And I speak that love. Do the same.
