Things never happen until a voice is risen and the called hears thus responding to it. Bondage’s and I mean all bondage’s awaits rebuke through you verbalizing so that they can break. Just like Romans 10:10 say
“With the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation. (HCSB)”. Salvation cannot get to you minus confession. For one; by confession you assures sin that you quit and you are in a new life of Jesus Christ.
All power lays in your tongue… let your lips not be heavy. No matter how much you may perceive of the things you may want to happen in your life, until you confess them they will never happen. Let’s look at Genesis 1:2
“Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness covered the surface of the watery depths, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.(HCSB)”… the holy spirit broad all over the earth for a non-estimated time… he perceived a lot on what could come out of the formless and shapeless “earth”. but things did not happen over that time of his Moving…. there was no existence at all no skies no light no everything… i just want us to imagine that the holy spirit broad or rather moved over the earth to date still contemplating on what the earth could be… one, there could be no me or you. Second, there could not be life and any existence, no word and all that is today… but look after moving over the formless earth for that time that he did, an extra mile was to be taken… Genesis 1:3
“Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.(HCSB)”.. This is the engagement of voice… Not the words God said….. And it’s by the words of God that I am and you are and everything else is. Let’s do some survey here: Genesis 1:26
Then God said, “Let Us make man in our image, according to Our likeness. They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the animals, all the earth, and the creatures that crawl on the earth.”(HCSB).. God had conceived the appearance and the role of man before he spoke out… lets create… bring forth… so then man was created after it was spoken of what is to be created..
Israelites subjection to slavery was not a one day thing but a long period of time. Some may ask was God still there? Or where was God then? But why don’t you ask: What hadn’t the Israelites done for God o rescue them. The answer is simple. They had not lifted their voice. And that’s way the bible records that when they cried out, then God responded and saved them.
Exodus 2:23-25: “During that long period, the king of Egypt died. The Israelites groaned in their slavery and cried out, and their cry for help because of their slavery went up to God. God heard their groaning and he remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob.(NIV) So God looked on the Israelites and was concerned about them”
How many are the promises that God has for us? Those that we know and that which we doesn’t?
Why are they not fulfilled yet?
God had made promises to the Israelites through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob which was long ago compared to these time Israelites are captives. The cry of the Israelites made God to recall the promises he had for the great people of Israeli.
The power in spoken word and confession is such great that even God never repents or rather hold back his words… no matter how much a man may quit from HIM HE is always faithful to his word…. remember Israelite…. He promised their ancestors of liberating Israelite from the land of captivity and he will give them the Promised Land… but what did they do in the desert. But God stuck to His word to the end….
MINISTRY OF JESUS
LET us imagine this… (it not wrong to imagine)…. if Jesus came to the world and never let out his voice to be heard by people…
No salvation could have come for no one could have known Him
No one could be risen from the dead because there could be no command for life to reign.
No New testament because no liberation from sin could have come.
We could still be living under the law. And all weakness could be reigning to date.
But because he spoke that why this is in the bible Matthew 11:4
Jesus replied to them, “Go and report to John what you hear and see:5; the blind see, the lame walk, those with skin diseases are healed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the poor are told the good news.(HCSB).
He commanded death, diseases, poverty, disabilities and all evil and His greatness reigned all over.
See these Scriptures:
after He said this, He shouted with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out!”(HCSB)
So He took her by the hand and called out, “Child, get up!”(HCSB)
when he heard that it was Jesus the Nazarene, he began to cry out, “Son of David, Jesus, have mercy on me!”(HCSB)
many people told him to keep quiet, but he was crying out all the more, “Have mercy on me, Son of David!”(HCSB)
“Go your way,” Jesus told him. “Your faith has healed you.” Immediately he could see and began to follow Him on the road.(HCSB)
Why did Jesus had to ask this question????
Then Jesus answered him, “What do you want me to do for you?” “Rabbouni,” the blind man told Him, “I want to see!”(HCSB)… He knows your mind but he needs you confirm what you really want… is it riches, wisdom, knowledge, success, salvation??? Say it dear… he awaits you to open up.
But Jesus rebuked him and said, “Be quiet and come out of him!” And throwing him down before them, the demon came out of him without hurting him at all.(HCSB)(dictate hos everything should happen)
Through the ministry of Jesus all this came to happen because they were commanded to happen… wow this the joy i have today that all powers a laid in my tongue.
But to my surprise, most are the times when we use our voices (tongue) in the wrong way…
So too, though the tongue is a small part [of the body], it boasts great things. Consider how large a forest a small fire ignites.(HCSB)
And the tongue is a fire. The tongue, a world of unrighteousness, is placed among the parts of our [bodies]; it pollutes the whole body, sets the course of life on fire, and is set on fire by hell.(HCSB)
