THE POWER OF PRAYER-part 2
GOD Has given His COVENANT of the WORD to US that is in our hearts (spirits) and our lips (through prayer and worship)
Isaiah 59:21 As for me, this [is] my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My Spirit that [is] upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and forever.
There are a number of Scriptures in the NEW TESTAMENT THAT SPEAK OF THE FULFILMENT OF ISAIAH 59:21. Notice with me HOW JESUS CONFIRMS THIS SEVERAL TIMES, ALMOST AS TO MAKE A POINT IN THE ATTEMPT TO MAKE IT OBVIOUS TO US. And this same Covenant is fulfilled in the ACTS 1 and 2 when God sent the Spirit (THE POWER FROM ON HIGH) to BAPTIZE US into CHRIST and the GLORIES OF CHRIST. Let’s have a look at the following scriptures to discover the COVENANT OF ISAIAH 59: 21 in them.
Acts 1:4-5 And, being assembled together with [them], commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father (referring to Isaiah 59:21), which, [saith He], ye have heard of me. 5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you (referring to Isaiah 59:21 again), : and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Acts 2:1-4 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Acts 2:16-18 But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; 17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:
John 14:16-17 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter (Holy Spirit), that He (Holy Spirit) may abide with you forever; 17 [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you (Again Isaiah 59:21 is being spoken of here).
That is why Jesus strongly urges us to abide in His Word and spoke this Truth constantly to all those who were with Him,
John 14:21,23-24 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them (the Commandments of LOVE), he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself ………23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we (FATHER, SON) will come unto him, and make our abode with him (THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT UPON THE WORD IN US). 24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
Give God first place in your house and He will bless you abundantly. He will open every door that was shut. He will even open doors of blessing that you did not know existed for you, He will open them to the Glory of His Name. Give God first place over your house and curses will be broken over your family and over your life. Moreover, blessings will pour into your family and this blessing will cause you to become a blessing to those around you. This blessing will be established in your life to promote you even to high places in Christ and give you the ability to bless even the nations of the world. Yes God can do it to that degree and beyond because His thought and ways are higher than ours. God is a God of His word and He stand by His promise and Covenant that He has given to us. So when God says He will bless you He will bless you. You see when God commands Glory, Revival and Purpose it will happen to the glory of His Name and nothing will be able to stop its cause until He has fulfilled His Word in You. Give God first place in your house and He will bless every area of your life. So when you have respond to His Word then stand still and behold the glory of God to see break through come early for you.
God is steadfast to deliver you and if you are steadfast with the Word of God, then the Word of God will raise a standard against the enemy and bring you your victory to the Glory of God’s name.You see the Holy Spirit and the Word of God upon your mouth is the power-comination that summons a divine intervention from God. So prayer stretches your boundaries and causes the Holy Ghost to intervene on your behalf. The Holy Ghost and the Word put together in your mouth in prayer summon heaven to move and act on your behalf to make the impossible become possible and delivers the miraculous into your life. You see what moves God is your heart of faith and faith is activated through prayer cause heaven to invade earth and bend situtations for your sake. Hallelujah! When faith is stirred in your heart by prayer this will cause you to seek him and those who seek God with all their heart will find God because God wants us to find him. And the devil will feed our minds with doubt and tell us lies that it is no use praying to God because God is too Holy to hear us. But God looks upon the humble in heart and He responds to the contrite in spirit. God created us for a divine expression and that is worship and there is no limit to us reaching the glories of God when we worship him and place his words on our mouths in prayer.
Prayer releases the resources of Heaven to meet our needs because we pray in the Spirit and the Spirit who knows the heart of God delivers to us correctly all that we need to supply us even above and beyond all that we have asked and ever imagined. As you pray in the Holy Ghost what is in the heart of God is poured out to you and is made manifest in the natural by the Power of the Holy Spirit within you. This is part of your Right and Inheritance in Christ Jesus. You can influence the spirit realm by the power of your prayer, I’m talking about prayer that takes God’s Word and activates it. To see healing in the natural realm we must create it by our words. Our words are spiritual and have a direct impact on the realm of the supernatural. What you speak you will receive. Thus what you pray will be released unto you and if you are steadfast to bombard the realm of the spirit with your words of faith this will subsequently explode into the natural realm and reveal itself for you.
So I urge you to pray my brothers, pray my sisters, pray like Jesus did. For Jesus moved heaven to influence the earth. Jesus stirred faith in the Holy Ghost through His time spent in prayer to God and when He walked on the earth sickness, demons, darkness and death could not stand or prevail against Him. Likewise He has given us the keys of the Kingdom (HIS WORDS) to unlock all doors in the supernatural to affect the earth. Jesus explains the link between the spirit realm and the natural realm by these words: What you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and what you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. So prayer moves heaven to shake earth on your behalf. (Mathew 16:16-19/ Mathew 18:18)
Count everything you may be facing right now with joy in the LORD and place them before the face of Christ because nothing can separate you from the LOVE of Christ. (Romans 8:39). God through prayer is able to cause the flesh and the natural realm to submit to the Will and Way of Christ. The truth is that encountering God starts with the heart and every word we speak comes from the heart. If our words rise out to glorify God thenGod will be enthroned our prayer praises and victory will always be ours because God is with us always. Amen!
