Word and Power

It is apparent, and important to note, that “word” and “power” are related in the Bible. The two terms go together most purposefully. The Bible shows us clearly that wordswordthe Word of God is not just some ink on some paper and it is not just a thought that happened to get scribbled down that works well for inspirational reading. The Word of God is power; it is active, operative, energizing and effective. The Word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword. That word “any” just can’t help but stand out. The Word is more effective than any cutting instrument, no matter how well made or refined. The Word cuts through layers better than any scalpel. The Word, in articles, books and posts like this, is being worked in you by the Holy Spirit and is building you up in your most holy faith (Jude 1:20). Your faith is holy. i.e., (1) It is uniquely set apart unto God and (2) it has value. The Word of God that your faith is based upon has value for your life and for your family and your nation. (Ps 19:7-11); (also Heb.4:12; Num.11:23; 1Cor.1:18; 1Thess.1:5; Heb.1:3)


Kingdom of God in Evidence

(Kathy)  As I searched the scriptures, I found the Kingdom of God (or Kingdom of Heaven) could refer to three things: 1) The place where God dwells and reigns eternally, 2) God’s AUTHORITY & POWER ruling on earth, and 3) the company of people who have submitted their lives to God’s authority, both now and eternally.  Jesus preached and emphasized the second aspect, God’s AUTHORITY and POWER ruling on earth.  That is why He said to some as He healed them, “The Kingdom has come upon you.”  The Kingdom of God is in evidence wherever God’s AUTHORITY and POWER are manifested on earth.

Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom

Considering anticipating the power of the Kingdom, I set out to find some equipping insights or basics to walk out that anticipation in real life.  I started by finding a definition of anticipation is “an impression in advance,” so it is an impression of Kingdom Power in advance of experiencing it. Anticipation is a realization before it happens, so it is a realization of Kingdom Power before it happens. Anticipation is a foretaste, so it is tasting Kingdom Power before it’s time to eat! For three-plus years, Jesus demonstrated the Power of the Kingdom and that produced ANTICIPATION, an impression, a realization and a foretaste.  He did this through healing and deliverance and powerful gifts of the Spirit and through taking dominion over weather, fish, fig trees, death and demons.  (The first excerpt from Kathy’s article “Anticipating the Power of the Kingdom”)

Enablements That Communicate


Enablements That Communicate

As we go into the future, Holy Spirit will impart to us enablements that communicate in language that reaches people where they are. In one meeting I spoke of the greatness of God and the many dimensions in the universe. Afterward, a scientist who had helped develop the Apollo rocket walked up and engaged me in conversation about dimensions. I ended up ministering to him about his purpose and counseling him concerning his marriage. On several occasions, people working in the government of our nation have contacted Kathy for help interpreting their dreams and she was able to prophesy to them concerning God’s purposes in their future. In a meeting, I spoke of righteous legislation for our nation. A man who is running for the U. S. Senate was in that meeting. One of his aides contacted me and told me that the gentleman wept openly in the meeting because of what the Lord spoke to him concerning legislation for our nation. In the play Julius Ceasar Mark Antony cries out, “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.” I believe that today our Lord’s cry is, “Sons, daughters, believers, lend me your capacities to communicate.” Believers have not yet seen everything our Lord will do to us and through us for His Kingdom purposes but…. we are available.

The Power Of Language

The Power of Language
Through the advent of many languages the masses were scattered at the Tower of Babel when they rebelled against God. The many languages made them weak and rendered them incapable of reaching a common goal. “The LORD said, ‘Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be impossible for them.” (Gen 11:6) It was obviously the language of politic and industry but, though it was able to accomplish great things, it was not in alignment with the purposes of God. It was of the spirit of Lucifer who said, “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly (Isa 14:13).” It was the language of self-pursuit denying the headship of Jehovah. “The power of language is its ability to produce but if it is not for His glory, it will eventually be to our detriment” (M.Munroe). But Holy Spirit has brought the language of heaven (Acts2:4;19:6) to unite us for the advancing of the Kingdom of God.


Speaking HIS Language

Speaking HIS Language

Jesus commissioned us to go and to do with His “power of rule” (Mt 28:18) what He had done with it. The factor of multiplication was ever present throughout the record of His representing the Kingdom of God on earth (Mt.14:17-21). Jesus spoke the language of wholeness and multiplication. When we speak the language of subtraction and diminishing, we cannot get the results Jesus got. When He saw disease, He spoke the opposite to what it was doing to the person. He never got into agreement with the spirit or the infirmity. (Mt.9:6;14:27;17;7; Mk.5:39-42;7:34;Jn.5:8) When everyone at a wedding was speaking the language of lack, Jesus spoke the language of plenty and the result was better wine than the previous that was served. (Jn 2:10;10:10) In that instance, Jesus didn’t even have a small amount of wine to multiply; He took empty vessels and filled them.
