Scripture reading: Hebrews 11:1-6

Faith! You must have faith, but your faith must be in something. In other words, faith is a subsidiary weapon that cannot work by itself. Let me say it again: Faith cannot work by itself! You cannot have wild faith like the “Name It and Claim It” type. That is a wild faith and it does not have substance in anything. So, therefore, you have faith in a word. I am going to give you an example.

God anointed David to be king from when he was a young boy. He told David, “You will be king over Israel.” Now David knows that if God said he would be king then God could not allow him to be killed. So later, young David faced Goliath with impunity knowing that his God will bring Goliath down. He knew this, because God had told him he was supposed to be king down the road.

Have you ever gotten a prophecy? Do you remember in your mind what the prophecy said? Do you know that the devil cannot kill you, because God gave you a prophecy that down the road you are going to be somebody? Now, God does not say you can be presumptuous, go throw yourself over a precipice and say, “Well, God said I am going to be king (or queen), so therefore let me throw myself over this precipice, because God will keep me up.” Presumptuous sin is against God.

So therefore, you have a word from God. If you do not have a word from God, go to God and get yourself a word. Did you hear me? Let every man of God, woman of God, child of God get a word from God that is absolutely, completely yours; and hold that word because there is a song that says, “When the storms of life are raging and you are tossed o’er sea and land, you will find a place of refuge in the hollow of His hand.” 

If you will take refuge under that word that God has given you, it will be “a lamp to your feet, and a light to your path” (Ref. Psalm 119:105). It also says in Psalm 119:11, “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”  Glory to God!

If God gives you a word, the word becomes a fortress and a weapon and something to hold on to. And so, you must have faith in something. You must have faith in a word of God and anybody who does not have a word, get one!

I will give you a word. When I was freshly saved, I did not know what salvation was and I did not know who God was. When God came into my room, He gave me a word and He has given me the same word seven times. He said, “As I was with Moses, so will I be with you. I will never leave you nor forsake you.” He also said, “No man shall stand before you all the days of your life. Anywhere the soles of your feet tread upon that will I give to you.” That is what He spoke to Joshua, but Jesus came to my room and He said it to me seven times. There is no way or possibility of anybody ever discouraging me—any demon, any devil, any man! Do you hear me? The word of God has become a fortress and a monument in my soul.

Because of the word, the soul of man becomes a bulwark of God! Do you hear me? Your soul becomes a bulwark for God! A walking, talking, conquering soul; not able to be defeated, because you have a word of God.

So then, the faith of God must work with the word of God. If God gives you a word, then you have faith. If God gives you no word, then you have no faith. You cannot have faith without having some foundation to your faith.

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, January 1997, pg. 18-20)

Thought for today: Stand in faith on the word God has spoken to you. If you have not a word or prophecy from Him, then go to God and let Him give you a personal word so that you can have foundation to your faith.

Scripture reading: James 3:8-12

Have you ever thought about prophecy? What it really is? We all know that the prophets prophesy. You get used to a prophet, and when you come to a meeting, you say, “Oh God, I want a Word from You tonight!” And you are looking for the prophet to come over to you and say unto you, “The Lord would say unto you, brother/sister, so and so and so and so.” However, that is only one little-bitty part of prophecy. The prophetic ministry is preaching, but prophecy can be anything you say.

I went up to someone and said, “Hi. How are you? I haven’t seen you in a long time. You must be misbehaving.” I just intended for it to be funny. It was not funny. The person was badly hurt because I made light of a situation that I didn’t know about.

Let me tell you another situation like that – a famous one. We went into service, and I was preaching restitution. A sister was sitting down right in the front. I said, “If you steal a man’s cow, and you say you repented, why don’t you give back his cow?” She got up and left and half of the congregation walked out with her. I had no idea what was happening. Then another dear sister came to my wife and said, “Sister duCille, Brother duCille is a fine brother, a good preacher and everything like that, but why does he have to be so explicit at times?” My wife responded, “What? What do you mean? What did he do?” She said, “He must have known that the sister’s brother stole the cow.” I had no idea of any cow business.

I found out I could not make a joke. To this day, I dare not make a joke with you, or else I’ll get into trouble, because I’m going to speak your business. I met a brother, shook his hand, and said, “Man, you are a beast.” Oh God! I am glad that he forgave me, because he was dealing with that situation. He got up in a meeting and testified, “I am just a beast!” He had done something wrong and his own conscience was against God.

That is prophecy in the church! Prophecy from your lips! If you curse somebody, they are cursed. If you bless somebody, they are blessed. Do you hear me? THEREFORE, BLESS EVERYBODY! That is prophetic power and ministry in the Body. The spirits take the words that you speak from your mouth! If you speak a good word, the spirits of God take it and bless the person. If you speak a bad word, the devils take it and slam the person.

A dear sister that was a friend of ours was driving one day down the street in Fort Lauderdale. About six boys came with their bicycles and began to slowly ride in front of her. You know that the boys can sometimes be very rude and terrible. She tried to go to the left and they went left; she tried to go to the right and they went right. They backed her all around and were just laughing at her. She got so mad. She said to one boy, “I hope that someone will come, knock you down and kill you!” Then she went down to the store. When she was coming back, she was just in time to see them putting the same boy in an ambulance. A car with an impatient driver had come and as the boy tried the trick with him, he stepped on the gas and knocked the boy to pieces. She never forgot it for she felt that she did it because she commanded it.

The Spirit of God talks about commanding the blessing. You have the power to command the blessing and to command the curse. That is the reason why we have to get rid of our bad thinking, our evil thinking. Somebody hurts you and you start to think evil. Just get rid of that thought immediately. Ask God to help you. Tell somebody to pray with you to get rid of it, because your mind, your thinking will motivate every spirit in hell to go out there and do what you tell it to do. You have the power of life and death in your tongue (James 3:8-12).
