Message for October 7, 2018 from Pastor Shirley

“And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find anything thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it…. And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots. And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursed is withered away. And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”Mark 11:13-14 and 20-24

    Jesus said, “whosoever shall say.” You are whosoever?  Your words can affect the natural as well as the spiritual world. In this verse of Scripture Jesus used the word “say” or “saith” three times. He was making it very clear that words have power and to have faith in God. Have faith in God is translated to have the God kind of faith. The words that have power are words that are filled with faith and this is not our human faith. This faith is the very faith of God that He placed in you when you were born again.

     Proverbs 18:21 reads, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue. The words we speak are creating the atmosphere around us. When we speak we are giving power to what we are saying. If we say something long enough we will began to believe what we are saying. It becomes a part of us. That is why it is so important to consider how we are talking.

     Look around you everything we see was created by words, and it is the very Word of God that holds the universe together. The Bible  tells us in Hebrews 1:3 “He holds the universe together and expands it by the mighty power of his spoken word”.
