What are you doing to confirm the power of the Word of God?

John 2:11 What Jesus did here in Cana of Galilee was the first of the signs through which he revealed his glory; and his disciples believed in him. You can tell people about God until you turn blue but when you demonstrate his power working in you with signs and wonders, that brings the Word to reality. When the disciples went out preaching, they confirmed the preaching with miraculous signs. Mark 16:20 Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it Jesus said those who believed in His Word, miraculous signs will accompany them. Nathanael was told about Christ but did not believe, it’s only when Jesus told him about where he was before coming to Him that confirmed who Jesus was. John 1:50 Jesus asked him, “Do you believe this just because I told you I had seen you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than this.”

The reason why there is an influx into prophetic and deliverance ministries is because people know the Word, but don’t see it manifesting to what they know and hear about it in the Bible. The devil has also realized the gap and brings out his fakes to cause confusion.

The Holy Spirit cannot be in a place and be idle

Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion.

When Jesus arrived at the gravesite where Lazarus was buried, He gave thanks to God for hearing his prayers. Pray in the spirit at all times. Prayer is communion with God, there is not right place or right time to pray. Pray as the Spirit directs you. John 11:41-44 So they rolled the stone aside. Then Jesus looked up to heaven and said, “Father, thank you for hearing me. You always hear me, but I said it out loud for the sake of all these people standing here, so that they will believe you sent me.” Then Jesus shouted, “Lazarus, come out!” And the dead man came out, his hands and feet bound in graveclothes, his face wrapped in a headcloth. Jesus told them, “Unwrap him and let him go!”

Stay a little longer, everything comes to an end

When we pray, we expect Jesus to come and attend the situation now. We keep repeating our request because we don’t have faith. Jesus only ask that we trust and believe that He will never forsake us. He is there in our storm and in our sickness. If Jesus ran to attend to Lazarus when Mary and Martha called, the healing miracle would not have been bigger that the miracle of resurrection. John 11:1-6 A man named Lazarus was sick. He lived in Bethany with his sisters, Mary and Martha. This is the Mary who later poured the expensive perfume on the Lord’s feet and wiped them with her hair. Her brother, Lazarus, was sick. So the two sisters sent a message to Jesus telling him, “Lord, your dear friend is very sick.” But when Jesus heard about it he said, “Lazarus’s sickness will not end in death. No, it happened for the glory of God so that the Son of God will receive glory from this.” So although Jesus loved Martha, Mary, and Lazarus, he stayed where he was for the next two days.

Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?

The issue of LGBTQ is one that get to and offend most Christians. Most are quick to say, they are not judging but referencing scripture. As Christians we are quick to discuss the sins relating to the outward acts i.e LGBTG, drinking smoking, stealing etc, yet many of us confuse those outside church with our behavior that does not resemble that of Christ i.e Loving, kind, forgiving and bearing with one another. People don’t talk to each other and gossip about one another inside church. Church is where one must experience love and feel welcome whatever condition they come with. Matthew 9:10-13 While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with him and his disciples. [11] When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” [12] On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. [13] But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”

We all fall short of God’s glorious standard, there is no one who can claim to be better than another. Let’s learn from our Lord and allow the Holy Spirit to locate us in our weaknesses and may the Word renew our minds so that we don’t fall short. Let’s use the Bible for us to change not to find faults on others.

All authority is from God

No matter how powerful a political party may seem, when it’s leaders neglect the plight of the poor, their tears and pain is also acknowledged in heaven. Exodus 3:9 And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them. God creates a way where there it seem impossible, there is a turning of events and circumstances in heaven that results in power shift to favor the oppressed.

There is the owner and creator of all mankind who decides on the life of the government of the day.
