Luke 5:17 Now it happened..... on a certain day.... as Jesus was teaching..... that there were Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting by, who had come out of every town of Galilee, Judea, and Jerusalem.
AND THE POWER OF THE LORD WAS PRESENT TO HEAL THEM.
LUKE 5:24 JESUS SAID, " But that you may know that THE SON OF MAN HAS POWER ON EARTH TO FORGIVE SINS-............... "I SAY TO YOU ARISE, TAKE UP YOUR BED AND GO TO YOUR HOUSE."
Prepare your hearts for healing's in the air... God is no respecter of persons. The power of the Lord is present to heal us .. everyone..
How desperate are you?
Luke 5:18 & 19 - "Then behold men brought on a bed a man who was paralyzed. And they sought to bring him in and lay him before Him. (19) and when they could not find how they might bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the housetop and let him down with his bed through the tiling into the midst before Jesus."
Seek the means and make up your mind. Can God see your faith? What are you doing to show action to your faith?
When you know something is not healthy for you are you still partaking of it? you know what to do... are you doing it? Obedience is key. Ask God to help you to obey Him and help you to show you a new way or give you discipline in your area of weakness. " Help me Lord in my unbelief".
Faith is not a "movement" or fad. "The just shall live by faith." It is a lifestyle.
"For it is impossible to please Him without faith. He who comes to God must first believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek HIm". Hebrews 11:6
Isaiah 42:10 - " Sing a new song unto the Lord."
Get your expectancy up. God is doing something new. "His mercies are new every morning."
Renewing our minds with God's word is saying that we believe HIm and His word!
Not the high and lofty lies that satan is trying to tell us about our death and destruction. "Jesus came to give us life and give it more abundantly", we know that "satan comes to steal kill and destroy". But "greater is He who is in us than he that is in the world."
That tells us that there is a devil and he is in the world. "The prince of the powers in the air...going about as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. He can't hurt us... but he can deceive us into thinking that the truth we are recieivng is not ture. He goes about loking to see... hide yourself in God's word and use the shield of faith which is able to quence every firey dart of the enemy.. It will come to your thoughts. fight the enemy in that battleground with" the weapons of our warfare which are not carnal"...."But we wrestle not with flesh and blood but against principalities, powers and rulers of darkness in spiritual places in the heavenlies".
This shows us that satan is not in hell, yet. He is on the earth and in the air....we just cannot see him but maybe we can feel the effects of his shinnanigans. He knows he has little time and wants to take as many as he can deceive. We are in a spiritual battle and we need to use God's weaponry.
" For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds and every high and lofty thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God."
"We the church also have the keys of the kingdom " which is our AUTHORITY as Jesus took it back from satan and gave it to the church before he rose to heaven. He also sent the Holy Spirit to us as our helper...we need understanding to wield "the sword of the spirit which is the word of God" when we fight the devil and his cohorts in the battlefield of our minds.
IF our thoughts are not God's thoughts and our minds are darkened, then we only have to renew our minds with the word of God. Meditating on His word and "praying in the spirit to build up our spirits" 1 Jude 20 and in the understanding as much as possible.
Proclaim to yourself by faith and get understanding that you will need to have your thoughts conform to what God says about you "put on the new man".... Say this..
"I've got a new mind set, I'm gonna be expecting."..
don't let your mouth sing the blues,
This is from the Lord. Revelation knowledge..
"Our words are powerful they are like a ships rudder and it turns the whole ship...
1. we think it first.. (or the enemy can also speak it into our minds then we think we are thinking it)... then
2. we speak it into existence, then
3. we act on it and do it...
so be careful....what you say out of your creative being...as we also are made in the image of God....just like God's word is powerful and sharper than any two edged sword..... we are to be immitators of God "creating/calling those things which are not as though they were" .. say and sing something new!
Isaiah 42:12 & 13 - Let them give glory to the Lord, And declare His praise in the coastlands.
(13) The Lord shall go forth like a mighty man, He shall stir up His zeal like a man of war. He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud, He shall prevail against His enemies.
We are going to have the greatest victories in these last days. God will be prevailing. This is not the time to back down and give up! Don't quit! Stand! Yes we still have attacks but the Lord will prevail against His enemies. When the enemy comes in like a flood, the spirit of the Lord will raise up a standard against him. Satans days are numbered and he knows it! He also knows that we will live eternally with God and he is jealous and wants us to make the same decisions to do things our own way and say that we are the god of our own lives.
Quit living in the past. Quit talking depression and sing, God's gonna do something new!
Isaiah 42:18, 19. "Hear, you deaf, and look ,you blind, that you may see. Who is blind but My servant, or deaf as My messenger whom I send? Who is blind as he who is perfect, and blind as the Lord's servant? Seeing many things, but you do not observe, opening the ears but he does not hear. 22: But this is a people robbed and plundered, all of them are snared in holes, and they are hidden in prison houses, they are for prey, and no one delivers for plunder, and no one says Restore!"
Isaiah 43:19 -21 - I will do a new thing.... I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert......(21) They shall declare My praise.
