Teaching – Declarations Will Make a Difference!
Pastor Caspar McCloud – Upper Room (c) 2010

Papa God, we thank you for today and for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth and for the Holy Spirit. We thank you for all the provisions you give us; for food and clothing and for a roof over our heads; for air conditioning and for heating and this place to meet and have meetings with you.

Thank you for our church families, loved ones, and friends. For having the privilege of coming to you anytime day or night and that you always welcome us into your throne room and make a way possible to help us in our times of need when there seems no way possible; that all things are possible with you.

We thank you for eternal life, for eternal identity, and inheritance. We thank for taking care of us and all the details of our lives. We are so grateful and thankful that you allow us to partner with you today. For all the wonderful testimonies that continue to come in; that we can be a light in this dark world, and joint heirs with our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank you that we are a chosen generation, the Royal Priesthood of believers; that we are such a blessed people, as we ask you to help us now to continually line up with your Holy Word. We are so grateful you have gathered us together to be of one accord like this.

Thank you that you are so full of mercy, grace, and love. Help us Lord, that we can put on the mindset of Christ and according to John 14:12 this and greater things shall we do. Thank you that we can watch and pray always that we may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass and that we can stand before you Lord, before the Son of Man.

We invite you Holy Spirit to come now. Come Holy Spirit and teach us and take us over. We ask that blessings overtake us and chase us down in Jesus of Nazareth’s name, amen.

Declarations will make a difference! The Words that leave our mouths will have an impact on our future. Let us start to unravel this concept.
Matthew 21:18-22 “Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered. 19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! 21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. 22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
Let us think this through, how important our words are. When we make a statement declaring a promise in Papa God’s Kingdom coming to earth as it is in Heaven, we are releasing some of Heaven to earth with our words.
“Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven”.
Our words actually carry great power. We have been given a great responsibility with them to use them very carefully. We were created in the image of God and designed to live forever. We were given certain powers and freedom to use them for good or evil.
Because the Bible instructs us in Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
Yet how often do we believers seem to forget that very important warning and allow things to come out of our mouth that should not be uttered? Words are very powerful. As a songwriter I realized very quickly in my early career how important words can be if used effectively in a song to alter someone’s mind and opinions. There have been many great composers who thought they could change the world with their words through powerful, emotionally charged music. We only have to look back retrospectively a few generations to see the effects of that. The 60’s brought in a tide of rebellion with social and political changes and the music seemed like the driving force behind that.
We have taught already a number of times how powerful a thought can work in one’s imagination. Mostly they are word pictures or word thoughts that cause great chemical reactions in your body.
For example, when you see flashing police lights in your rear view mirror suddenly you feel a surge of adrenalin type chemicals rush and wash throughout your whole body while words form to try and think how you will answer any questions once the officer has you stopped and pulled over.
All words, like all ideas, eventually will have consequences when acted upon. Our words reveal what is in our hearts.
Jesus said in Matthew 15:10-11 “And he called the multitude, and said unto them, Hear, and understand: 11 Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.”
Whatever words you speak do not just vanish into the thin air. It seems as if words are like a pebble you toss into a pond and it makes a circle of vibrations that keeps spreading wider and wider and does not stop. It often seems to be helped along by a spirit of gossip. This is an analogy of sorts for you, getting into some deep waters here.

After you say something you should not have spoken, and then you will talk about it to others hoping someone one will help you justify your actions. There will be an assortment of spirits that will come to attempt to influence you in this endeavor as they are assigned to kill, steal, and destroy.

Those words we speak do not just disappear and vanish into thin air do they? Rather they reflect who and what we are inside. Our words expose our inner qualities or for that matter the lack of them. I have come to conclude there is no room in my holy temple for any spirit except the “Holy Spirit”. All other spirits are not welcome to stay. They will be cast out accordingly. They will not be entertained.

Once words leave your mouth they will either help produce good fruit or they will not. If they do not often they seem to pierce someone with a deep wound that certainly can heal up over time but often it may leave a scar just like a tattoo; it may never really go away.

I hear people tell me in ministry sessions who married for love and then later from perishing from lack of knowledge allowed a unclean spirit of criticism to come and join them. After they have disconnected emotionally from each other, you will hear one of them say things like, “Well that comment was the straw that broke the camels back.” It’s always that same story. No matter how they tried their spouse kept on criticizing them until one day they could not handle it anymore. Leaving them so wounded and scared from years of emotional abuse they are considering ending the marriage now.
We teach along the lines that you can be pierced by someone’s words and actions but you do not have to be wounded.

In Luke 6:45 Jesus taught, “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh”

In other words all the words we are speaking out are reflecting our spiritual condition. What happens in the spiritual affects things in the natural. What you do in the natural will affect the spiritual.

If deep in our hearts we are full of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, peace, love, patience, and joy then that will be what comes out of us. It’s just like programming a computer. What you put in that computer program will also be what comes out of it upon recall. In fact we really are much like a computer in many ways.
Whatever you see, hear, touch, smell, and taste—whatever you are experiencing—will become information from your senses that converges on the lower part of the thing called the cortex. Not to get too technical but that is the pink, fleshy part of the brain underneath the front of the temporal lobe, which is the side of your brain. The cortex is like a doorway into the brain where your five senses pass all the information about that it takes in. Just as it is processing and doing now.

Then all this information passes into a sort of relay station of the brain, which is the thalamus; like a relay race where you pass along something. The thalamus relays the information to the cortex where the memories are kept. This is the first place where attitudes begin to form. We have often said it is sort of like a breeze that blows through and moves some of those neuron trees to shake, rattle, and roll.
If you are not dwelling in the love of God your attitude will not be a godly one nor will your perceptions be godly. You will really have a time producing some good fruit in your life.
One main reason we get together as a collective body of believers is to feed on the Word of God just as we would as at a family dinner. Someone in the 5 fold ministry is to help equip the Saints; give them a good meal to help them keep on keeping on. I spend a great deal of time preparing a good meal each time as the Lord leads.
If our hearts become spiritually impoverished, it will certainly affect all our words and actions. You need good spiritual food to grow strong in the Word to be able to accomplish what you are assigned to do here on this planet.

Maybe we can say it this way. The words we speak are symptoms of what is going on inside us. Our words indicate the real condition of our hearts and minds, whether we are spiritually or carnally minded.
Old King Solomon was supposedly a very wise, merry old soul. If you study his life, King Solomon was blessed by Papa God with supernatural wisdom. He was considered the wisest man on the earth. He also seemed quite the ladies man, as he acquired multiple wives.
What was he thinking? King Solomon loved many foreign women. In Solomon’s day it appears that wives were like currency sort of the way the people in the Middle East see them today. For example, a lesser king would seal a treaty with a greater king by offering up his daughter to be the wife of his victorious opponent.
You know that old song:
Dandy, you know you’re moving much too fast
And Dandy, you know you can’t escape the past
Look around you and see the people settle down
And when you’re old and grey
You will remember what they said
That two girls are too many,
Three’s a crowd and four you’re dead.
Solomon had seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines. That is a thousand women in his life.
As wise as King Solomon was I am guessing he did not read and study much in Deuteronomy 17:16-17 because Papa God says, “But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way. 17 Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.”
It appears at that time in history it was believed that intermarrying with the women of other tribes could possibly lead to the worship of false idols and false gods.
Here is the wisest man on earth collecting a harem. Finding himself rather obsessed with power and wealth, which caused his downfall as he began to worship along with all his foreign wives who introduced him to their pagan gods.
The wisest man on earth not only disregarded the Lord’s rules in Deuteronomy, he also went against Papa God’s model for a man and a woman in a monogamous relationship.
Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.”
Genesis 2:21-25 “And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; 22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. 23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. 24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”
But something as you know went terribly wrong after that and we’ve been stuck ever since trying to recover ourselves from the snare of the devil. Praise God for the Lord Jesus who covers us in His precious blood and made it possible for us to receive forgiveness and to receive salvation.
Here is King Solomon while he was still supernaturally wise before he went off the deep end who tells us by divine inspiration. All scripture comes by divine inspiration. Maybe Solomon is the reason we have the expression, “Do what I say, not as I do”.
Proverbs 4:23-27 “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. (Guard your heart from going astray. This is like a reference to your arteries which carry the blood to all parts of your body sustaining life. But it is also warning about how good and evil come from the heart of man.)
24 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. (A forward mouth recalls how we will be judged for every idle word we utter.)
25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. (If you know the Lord is observing you, and you are observing Him are you really going to sin in front of Him?)
26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. (The Lord has a plan for your life and He will direct your path.)
27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil. (The feet are a part of the body that must keep you away from sinning. Such as when Joseph ran away from Potiphar’s naked wife who was trying to seduce him.)
The entire chapter of James 2 gives us insights into this.
One main reason I think the Lord Jesus gave us a strict warning that we would be judged according to the words we speak out, is because our words really do make a big difference in people’s lives and in their circumstances. Because truly our words will either release blessings or they will release curses into someone life.
Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
Mark 11:23 “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.”
Perhaps that is taking on new meaning right now for you; a fresh word from the Word.
I recall on a number of occasions as I was ministering to someone they would say something to indicate they did not believe prayers really worked. I figure my faith trumps their unbelief every time. Most of them come back at some point and give testimony how they got healed. All praise be to God!
I have seen the Lord heal unbelievers and all I did was put my hand on them. The Bible says in Mark 16:18 ‘Lay hands on the sick and they will recover.” It did not say to pray and lay hands on them so either way will work as the Lord will work with you.
Either we have the favor of the Lord or we don’t. If we pray with our whole hearts the Lord is going to honor his promises and good things will happen. Can I get an Amen?
In Matthew 8:26-27 “And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. 27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!”
If we have an intimate relationship with our Lord we are going to come to expect great and wonderful supernatural acts to happen.
There are storms that happen in this world. “Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord will deliver them out of all of them.” We need to be equipped and ready to speak to any storms in the all powerful name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
As you really consider all this, all our words, just like those of our Lord Jesus, carry great authority in this world.
I recall telling you a while back how I was on this airplane flying through a bad lightening and thunder storm. Are there any really good lightening and thunders storms to fly through?
Anyway, I was sharing some important point I was trying to make with this fellow traveler in the next seat who was at this point really looking fearful as if plane was not going to survive the storm.
Seeing how distracted he was I simply put my hand on the window and said audibly, “In the name of Jesus, peace be still”. Instantly we flew out of that storm and the sunlight flooded the plane. This man just looked absolutely amazed and was quite willing to let me pray for him after that. He looked at me and asked me, “What kind of power do you have?”
I told him I could not heal a butterfly with a broken wing unless the Lord decided to do that through me.
But our words really do carry great authority. Do not allow the devil to trick you and use it against you. Know the truth that makes you free.
In the Bible we observe that quite often the Lord Jesus simply spoke to a situation or circumstance and caused some of Heaven to come here to earth and alter a situation or circumstance.
For example if you recall the story in Matthew 8 about the Roman centurion he understood the authority Jesus carried when he said, “Just say the word and my servant will be healed.”
Matthew 8:5-13 “And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, 6 And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. 7 And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. 8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. 9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. 10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.”
Then the Lord Jesus spoke to the paralytic fellow, in John 5 saying, “Pick up your mat and walk,” and the man got up and received a miracle healing.
I also think the Lord may have healed everyone there that day even though it does not record that particularly, because over and over again the Scriptures tell us He healed all the sick and diseased. I do not buy into that doctrinal teaching many have taught how the Lord Jesus may have tip-toed over some sick and diseased people there just to heal this one fellow near the pool who could not manage to get into the water when the angel of the Lord stirred it up.
I have heard it said a man with an experience is never at the mercy of a man with an argument. It is my personal experience and my understanding of the Bible that our Lord wants to bless and heal His people.
Acts 10:38 “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.”
Another example would certainly be the Lord Jesus standing outside Lazarus’ tomb and speaking with great authority, “Lazarus come forth,” and the dead man Lazarus was raised, returned from 4 days in the grave.
If we are Christ’s ambassadors, we really need to be very careful with the words we speak. Be careful with all our words and all our declarations that we make. We are connected to the most awesome power in the universe. We have direct access to heavenly resources and because of that heavenly power that can be released simply by our faith filled words.
2 Corinthians 5:20 “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.”
You know Valarie asked me to come to minister to this man in the hospital that the medical staff was expecting to expire in a matter of hours. Valarie and I stood there and this man had all sorts of tubes sticking out of him, oxygen mask and all. In the natural it did not look good, but we serve a supernatural God. I declared this man would live and not die in the all mighty name of Jesus. The very next day we started receiving reports of his condition improving. His wife came here with a message that he is planning on giving us his testimony in near future.
I tell you making those kinds of statements under those conditions are a gift of faith. It is that kind of faith that pleases the Lord and that kind of faith can believe for the impossible to become possible.
I must admit I rather like it when medical doctors are amazed by experiencing the miracle healing power of my Lord.
Because as the priesthood of believers, who are representing Papa God on earth, our words can make the difference between life and death.
When we make a declaration we expect it to come to pass. Because of the blood of Jesus we are royalty; we are joint heirs with Christ; we are a child of the King. So let us act like one.
Knowing that our declarations may determine our destiny and the destiny of all those around us. It is like our declaration is a key made of faith that can unlock windows and doors in Heaven. So blessings shower down on us and blessings overtake us and chase us down.
Matthew 19:26 “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”
It appears to me that Papa God is just waiting for us to partner with Him in every opportunity that comes along in releasing some of His Kingdom here on earth. It says all things are possible WITH God. Does that mean we partner with him? I have concluded yes that is what He wants.
We are supposed to be living as Christians, meaning we are disciples of Christ living a naturally supernatural life. The Lord has given us all these gifts so we can use the key of faith and obedience to His word to simply unlock any doors we need. We can believe for a breakthrough in anything we are going through.
In Mark 11:22-24 “And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.”
That is essential then, because having faith in God gives us access to ask for whatsoever; there is no restriction here on what you can ask and believe for.
23 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. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
In other words you are going to pretty much have what ever you say.
Then it goes on to say, Mark 11:25-26 “And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses. 26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.”
That also includes forgiving yourself. If we are meeting the conditions that means we are able to access the promises.
Still that means taking responsibility as Papa God’s representatives in releasing the power of his presence.
Hebrews 13:5 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
That means He is always present with every child of His.
Luke 6:27-31 “ But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you, 28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you. 29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again. 31 And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.”
In other words you bring curses on yourself when you speak wrongly to anyone including, your spouse and family. They are not your enemy.
When you allow a spirit of criticism in, a spirit of accusation in, that is basically witchcraft and manipulation. We have seen way too much patriarchal and matriarchal witchcraft in Christians.
There is no room for any spirit but the Holy Spirit! Any other spirits must go in the Lord Jesus name.
You are going to have to love people even when they are unlovable.
The Bible also clearly warns us that believers should seek to avoid any profanity in their speech and follow scripture as it says in 1 Thessalonians 5:22 “Abstain from all appearance of evil”.
Ephesians 4:29 says ” Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.”
Papa God’s Word clearly is against the use of all profanity, because the words you speak really do matter. Regardless of their usage and context in contemporary culture, and films profanity remains strictly off-limits to the true believer because behind it is an unclean spirit. We are to show mercy, grace and love.

It is quite amazing that we really get to partner with the Lord, and that because of that awesome privilege we see His favor and those needed breakthroughs we pray and believe for.
Yet for that to keep happening, it requires us to take responsibility on our end to release God’s presence through us, release His power and whatever resources we need into every situation and circumstance in which people need His intervention. Because the Word clearly tells My God shall supply all your needs through Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:19-20 “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. 20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”
This is a promise that stands true for all those who are in Christ, who are faithful to Papa God just as the Philippians were.
That means we can bank on it. As we pray in faith, as we declare the Word and the promises, as we call things as not as if they are.
John 14:13 “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
Is that not an amazing partnership we have?
Now really think this through here.
In Matthew 16:19 “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Humm, now if you recall when Papa God audibly spoke out of Heaven He said about Jesus, “This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased.”
Now as we have taught on the Father’s love for us, in fact as a born again-spirit filled child, joint heir with Christ that He is saying that about us now. We are His beloved sons and daughters in whom He is well pleased because we are covered in the precious blood of Jesus.
So could that possibly mean that we also have been given the keys to the Kingdom to be able to unlock Heaven whenever we need something?
John 14:13 “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
The Lord Jesus promised, “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven:….”
Does that really mean the Lord is saying, we can unlock the door to the resources of Heaven to get whatever we need, whenever we need it? That is an amazing privilege!
If you recall the Bible does not say you can only have what you need, but it says whatsoever you ask in my name. You can ask anything you want and get anything you want as long as it is accordance with the Word; as long as you are meeting the conditions.
It’s as if so many believers are waiting for the Lord Jesus to leave His throne in Heaven and come here and do something, yet He clearly told us to do something.
When our children grew of age, we kept giving them more responsibility. They receive their key to our home; then they got their own keys to various motorcars so we did not have to drive them every where they needed or desired to go.
The Lord Jesus did not say, ” Here you can borrow the keys to Heaven but bring them back when you done and be sure you are home by 10pm.”
In Matthew 16:19 “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven:”
Does that possibly mean now the Lord Jesus no longer has the key? Did He make a duplicate key? Surly He must have a spare key. Then again He is Messiah Jesus and He does not even need a key. He is the living Word and nothing is impossible for Him.
Maybe it is up to us now to use the key He has given us and open up doorways and windows to bring some of Heaven to earth.
As we offer up sacrifices of praise and worship, petitions, and ask that His presence and all mighty power be released through us. We are open as Heaven is open for supernatural signs and wonders to follow us as we follow after the Lord in all things.
It seems like we have all too often heard believers begging and pleading with Papa God to open up the windows of Heavens and let His blessings rain down on us. That the Lord would come and intervene, when all along, Papa God is trying to bless us and doing everything He can to get us to use the keys we been given to release His power so that intervention can come.
Without faith it is impossible to please the Lord. Surely that is the key here.
Can we really expect Papa God to do what He is expecting us to do?
I mean have you noticed that when we do our part the Lord will do His part?
In Luke 12:27-32 “Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? 29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. 31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. 32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
The little flock, the true believing church, the remnant of spirit-filled born again faithful, Papa God whose eyes search back and forth over the whole world seeking His kids, it is His good pleasure, He loves to give us the Kingdom.
One reason, I am confident the Lord will continue to do miracles and healings and free and deliver the captives is that we have been given the keys to unlock Heaven for what so ever we need.
Papa God is full of peace and joy and He not worried about what shape things are down here. He already knows the beginning from the end.
He can hardly wait to please you, as you seek Him and His righteousness everything you need will given you.
I can almost hear some people thinking, oh yeah if we have the authority and power to represent and bring Papa God’s Kingdom to earth, why aren’t we seeing more healings and miracles?
It appears to me that many believers seem double minded or they think the Lord will intervene only whenever He decides to.
If you recall Jesus’ mother Mary saying to him at the wedding they have no more wine! Jesus looks at her and says, “Why involve me? You know it’s not my time!”
The Lord Jesus tells us He only does what He sees and hears His Father doing. Papa God must have told Jesus, “Son, it’s not your time.”
Then Mary who knows who Jesus is just like we do who are born again, acts in faith and tells the servants just do whatever He tells you.
Suddenly Papa God must have said, ”Well now there is an act of true faith Jesus; go ahead Son now it is your time.”
My paraphrase, but my point is Mary’s faith seemingly changed and moved the hand of God.
How many believers are beat up and walking about with broken hearts when the Lord Jesus came to mend the broken hearted?
How many give in so easily and remain sick, and in want, when we have been given the keys to Heaven? How many have we lost, who perished from lack of knowledge because the church has not been teaching this all along?
We need to do all we know to do and then keep standing and believing for a breakthrough. When you get down in the trenches with people it appears many believers seem to think and believe that Papa God chooses who will be healed and who will not be healed. That is part of the predestination doctrines.
They agree that since Papa God is sovereign then that means He is in control of everything. The conclusion is why even pray because it’s all worked out already and nothing can possibly happen outside of His predestined will.
However, it appears to me life is like an ongoing play. Some of the lines are still being written, like music or acting that is totally improvised.
Otherwise how did Mary’s faith influence the Father to release the Lord Jesus to perform His first recorded miracle in the gospel turning water into wine?
I mean how many people have we seen in need that deep down have been programmed to think it must be God’s will for my life because nothing can happen outside of His sovereign control, right? They pray “Your will be done Lord…” They give in, they give up, and they are in fear-faith most likely.
Yet we have been invited by the Lord Himself to ask and receive ANYTHING that you want- not only what you need. There is no limitation on what we can ask and pray about.
It’s already God will for you to ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. John 15:7 “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”
John 16:23-26 “And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. 24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full. 25 These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. 26 At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you:”
Mark 11:22-24 “And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23 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. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
Let us not make any concession here to accept whatever Papa God has sovereignly predestined, instead of doing the Word and making declarations; calling those things as not as if they are; bringing some Heaven.
Everywhere we look there are hurting people needing people like us to help bring some Heaven to come to earth. Papa God is waiting for us to bring Heaven to earth.
I want to really encourage you right now that you have the ability to make a difference in someone’s life. You have the ability to help make this a better world.
You words are important. Use them wisely. Your declarations today will influence your tomorrow.
No circumstance can stand in the way and circumstances do not really move the hand of Papa God to do something. Faith moves the hand of God to perform healings and miracles.
Let’s pray.
Papa God your Word says in Isaiah 54:17 says “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.”
Our righteousness is from you my Lord. It is not our own righteousness. We are covered in the precious blood of Jesus. You Lord have covered us with a robe of His righteousness.
We understand Lord if we were to come against Satan and his demon army against any of his stinking curses in our own righteousness; we would have nothing what so ever to stand on. Lord, we make this declaration before you and both invisible kingdoms.
No weapon that is formed against us shall prosper and every tongue which rises against us in judgment we do condemn. This is our heritage as servants of the Lord and our righteousness is from you, O Lord of Hosts. If there are those who have been speaking or praying against us or seeking harm or evil to us or have rejected us, we forgive them and, having forgiven them, we bless them in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Now we declare, Papa God, that you and you alone are our God. Besides you there is no other and we worship and praise your most holy name. We love you Papa God our Father, your Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. We worship you; we adore you!

We submit ourselves afresh to you right now in unreserved obedience. Having submitted to you, Lord, we do as your Word directs. We resist the devil: all his pressures, all his attacks, all his deceptions, and every instrument or agent he would seek to use against us. There is only room for you Holy Spirit in us, no other spirits can remain. We will not submit to any spirit but the Holy Spirit! We resist every devil and every demon; we drive them out from us and exclude them from us in the all mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
We specifically reject and repel:

All spirits of Infirmity
Inflammation
Pain
Infection
Malignancies
Allergies
Viruses
Every Form of Witchcraft

Finally, Papa God, Lord, we thank you that through the sacrifice of your only begotten Son Jesus on the cross, we have passed out from under the curse and entered into the blessing of Abraham whom you blessed in all things.
We thank you now in advance for our health and prosperity, for productiveness, for victory and for your divine favor. Amen.
