The Authority of God’s Word
“I will bow down toward your holy temple, And give thanks to Your Name for your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your Word according to all your name.” NASB
“I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth; for thy has magnified thy word above all thy name.” KJV
We love to sing about the revealed names of God that He used to give us intimate knowledge of his nature. But now we are told that he has magnified His Word above all His names. Jehovah, the Self-Existent One; Jehovah Shalom, The LORD is Peace; Jehovah Rapha, The LORD that heals…. Does that negate His nature of who He is? Absolutely not! His nature still defines Him, his Word expands the revelation of His nature. Take for instance, Psalm 107:20: “He Sent his Word and healed them, and delivered them from all their destructions.” We see the two revelations working together to deliver healing/restoration. When we see the combination of his revealed nature and His Word in one accord that should increase our ability to booster our confidence levels. That is the essence of this verse/message. We can take the Word of the living God and speak it forth, just as He did, we can use it to transform circumstances/situations that enable us to mature as believers. Ps 119:9-11.
He said: “I will not alter the thing that has gone forth out of my mouth; and I watch over my Word to preform it.” Why would he give us this revelation? That we may have confidence in speaking His Word into our own lives, to use in petitions/supplications/intercessions, as we come boldly to seek help in times of need. Church of the living God, we are not orphans, God speaks to us through his Word that we may thereby conduct kingdom business by speaking with confidence, not doubt, His uncompromised Words, and expecting the Word to bear fruit.
Get rid of the subtle cancer of doubt, satan introduced that in the Garden of Eden in his conversation with Eve, to get her to doubt God’s Word, he does the same thing with us. Mark 11:23 is a stark reminder of what doubt can prohibit, also James 1:6-8. Can we have absolute confidence in God’s Word? Yes!
Listen now: The service has been separated into three parts, like a delectable meal prepared specially for you. Be blessed!
Healing and Deliverance
Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
