John 1:1-4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men.

Heb 1:3 The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his POWERFUL WORD.

There is noting more powerful than the Word of God!

God created the world by His word. God sustains all things by His word. It is not impossible for God to do anything that He declares. He can speak and it will happen. And we find that He created man in His own image. We have the ability to operate in the same kind of faith.

What do we need to make this work. The knowledge of God. Which is the Word of God.

When we align ourselves up with the word of God We are bringing into our lives the power that Jesus meant for us to have. Look at this verse. Jesus is giving His word to us with all of His love and authority.

John 14:12-14 I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

Luke 10:19 I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions (evil spirits) and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.

When we line our lives and our words up with Jesusā words. WE HAVE VICTORY!

But look what James says:
James 1:26 If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.

James 3:6 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.

Is it any wonder that we are sick. That we do not have the power that Jesus meant for us to have. James tell us that we are letting the devil control out tongue. We can not serve two masters - We have to kick the devil out of our lives.

How are we going to do this? By filling our heart with the Word. The word is our power. The word gives us the knowledge of God and when we stand in agreement with God, speaking His words, the victory is ours. The devil, and his demons who are destroying our lives with illness and disease, corruption and sin. Are cast out. Because we have filled our heart with good things. The words of God!

Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Matt. 12:34 You will never get good things out of your mouth if you do not abundantly put good things in your heart. So we must spend time reading and listening to God's word.

How to speak.
Prov 18:21 The power of life and death are in the tongue.

So we speak life, health and joy! We speak positively not negatively. We speak hope not despair. We speak health not sickness. We speak good not evil. We build people up, not tear them down. We think before we open our mouth - What would Jesus say? Then we line up with His word!

How to Pray.
Prayer should always be spoken. Not thought. Our power comes by speaking God filled words. Words of faith. Faith filled words bring God on the scene.

Jesus said, John 16:23-24 In that day you will no longer ask me anything. I tell you the truth, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. 24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.

Mark 11:23-24 "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Ask, was used seven times in the verses above. Jesus wants us to ask for what we want not think about it.

What type of words should we be using when we pray? We should pray using God's promises and His words of wisdom. God has words to fit all of our situations. These are the words we should use when we pray. In other words we should be praying in agreement with God.

To be praying words of doubt, defeat, sickness, poverty. Would not line up with God's words. They would line up with the devil. So it would put the devil in control of your prayer.

Many people pray "Oh God, I am so sick. I think I might die. Please heal me. (And then because they fear that He might not and have no idea what He is going to do, they add, If it be your will.) Well they have just sided with the devil. The devil is controlling their life and they are agreeing with him. They did not come to God in faith. They just came hoping. They did not even take the time to find out what God's will was.

Their prayer should have been ... "The power of God is in me to put me over." "Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world" "I'm quickened according to the word of God. I thank God that the ability of God is released in me. I stand before demons, I stand before sickness and disease, and I have no fear, because the ability of God is released within me, by the words of my mouth and by THE WORDS OF GOD. "Praise the name of the Lord." Dear Father, I am claiming what is mine. 1 Peter 2:24, By His Strips I am Healed!! Thank YOU Jesus.




Jesus said, Matt 12:37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned."






Watch your confessions.

Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. So keep positive confessions in your heart. Do not let your mouth nullify your prayers. You cannot get results if you are letting your mouth side with the devil!

James 3:3-5 says, Your mouth needs to be bridled. It is like a rudder ... It can change your whole life. So start turning your life around ...

Stop saying how bad you feel! Start speaking victory with the word of God.

"I am a conqueror! (Romans 8 : 37) "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!" (Philippians 4 : 13) I don't have to bow down to the Devil again. I'm a child of the King ... I'll live like a King ... I'll look like a King ... And I'll act like a King. Praise God, my needs are met ... Praise God, I am healed ... Praise God I have divine health ... Praise God I will rule as a King in life ... I am quickened according to the word of God. 1 John 4:4 The power of God is released in me by the words of my mouth and by the word of God!

Rom 8:11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you. Are you reading that?. Are you understanding that? The same Spirit that was in Jesus is living in you. It makes mortal bodies alive! Spirit words spoken by Jesus, ignites the faith that is residing in you! It causes an explosion of God's ability on your behalf when you speak these Spirit filled words!

Here is really what is happening.
Luke 17:6 Jesus said, "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, 'Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it will obey you.

A mustard seed has a husk. Inside there is a tiny seed. When planted that seed burst for and makes a mighty tree. You have a body, a husk. Inside you have a measure of faith, which God gave you. (Romans 12:3) That faith is held in your spirit which is joined with the Holy Spirit. (1 Cor. 6:17)

How do we activate this? Jesus says, when We Speak these forces come together and you have an explosion of God's power working for you. Add the name of Jesus to this mix and every knee will bow. Phil 2:10, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth. That is every evil spirit, every disease, everything in this universe. Praise you Jesus! And Jesus has given this name to us with the authority that goes with it. (Mark 16:17)(Luke 10:19)

What should we be doing with this power?

John 14:12-14 I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

Does that give you any idea how much Jesus loves you! To know how to use the power of the tongue perfectly let us look at how Jesus used it.

  1. When Jesus prayed, He always prayed what God said the answer was.

  2. His conversation always lined up with the word of God.

  3. He never confessed the circumstances. Always the end results.

  4. He used the written word to defeat Satan. Like it is written. You can too. Tell Satan that you do not have cancer for it is written by His strips I am healed.

  5. Jesus always spoke directly to the problem. Wind be calm, trees, storms, Satan and demons all had to obey Him. Not as the Son of God. But as the Son of man. Because Jesus came here as a human. He was laying the ground work for us showing us that we could use this power. Jesus was operating under the power of the Father's word. You can do the same.

Say Aloud ...

The God kind of faith believes in the heart, that what it says with the mouth, will come to pass. And then dares to say it! Hallelujah!!!!!!

************ La Vern ************

I have seen cancers destroyed. Old diseased hearts made new. All of these were done inside the body. I knew they were real, but I did not get to see it happen. Well, one night while we were having a revival at my Church, a girl of about 22, with one leg 3" shorter than the other made her way down to the healing line. You can just imagine her coming down the isle, in the erratic walk. We sat her in a straight back chair and placed her feet out in another. You could plainly see how short the leg was. The church started praying. Myself, my Pastor, and a guest Pastor were right beside the girl. We held our hands over her, but did not touch her. I was at her feet, and could see her perfectly. We spoke the words of God over her body. As we prayed the leg got longer. We kept praying. And in about four minutes the leg was the same length as the other. I watched it move out inch at a time. Praise God. When they were the same we stopped praying and started praising.


Faith is governed by the pure Word of God ... And is nothing less than expecting God to do what He promises.

We hope for what may be possible.
But we have faith in and expect what God promises.
Because God Does Not Lie!

Take Jesus at His word. And speak His word boldly!

Ferd Sebastian ... 2jesus
