The Power of God’s Promises ?

resurrection2Wherefore, as the Holy Spirit saith . . . Today, if you will only hear His Voice !

     “God, Who at sundry times and in diverse manners spake in time past unto our fathers by the prophets . . . . Hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son . . . by Whom also He made the worlds !”
Hebrews 1:1-3 & Psalm 33:6-9)

The same power that Christ exercised when He walked visibly among men is in His Word. It was by His Word that Jesus healed disease and cast out demons; by His Word He stilled the sea and raised the dead, and the people bore witness that His Word was with power. He spoke the Word of God, as He had spoken to all the prophets and teachers of the Old Testament. The whole Bible is a manifestation of Christ (the Anointed One, the Anointing) !   ref: John 6:63


The Scriptures are to be received as God’s Word to us, not written merely, but spoken
. When the afflicted ones came to Christ, He beheld not only those who asked for help,
but all who throughout the ages should come to Him in like need and with like faith ! 

     When He said to the paralytic, “Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee;” when He said to the woman of Capernaum, “Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace,” He spoke to every other afflicted, sin-burdened ones who should seek His help in faith.      Matthew 9:2 & Luke 8:48.

So with all the Promises of God’s Word. In them He is speaking to us individually, speaking as directly as if we could listen to His Voice. It is in these Promises that Christ communicates to us His grace* (G5485 – Divine Influence) and power. They are leaves from that Tree which is “for the healing of the nations.” Revelation 22:2. Received, assimilated, (and appropriated as your own), they are to be the strength of the character, the inspir-ation and sustenance of the life. Nothing else can have such healing power. Nothing besides can impart the courage and faith which give vital energy to the whole being !

For “the Words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are Life !” John 6:63

He sent His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions . . . O that men would Praise the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) for His goodness, and for His wonder-filled works to the children of men !”
Psalm 107:20-22

But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise . . . . And what saith it?
The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth and in thy heart: that is, the Word of faith, which we preach . . . For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession (to profess, and speak aloud) is made unto Salvation (deliverance, freedom, rescue, healing, and restoration) !” Romans 10:6-13

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God . . . !” Romans 10:17

To one who stands trembling with fear on the brink of the grave, to the soul weary of the burden of suffering and sin, let the physician (you and I) as he has opportunity repeat the Words of the Saviour –for all the Words of Holy Writ are His: – Ministry of Healing p.121-122

And thus saith the LORD God Almighty  . . .

      “Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name (and the gifts and the calling of God are without repentance . . . He does not change His mind); thou art Mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I Am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour. . . . Since thou wast precious in My sight, thou hast been honorable, and I have loved thee.” “Yea, I even I, Am He that blotteth out thy transgressions (rebellion and apostasy) for Mine own sake, and will not remember* thy sins.” “Fear not: for I Am with thee !”     Isaiah 43:1-4, 25, 5

      “Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) pitieth them that fear Him. For He knoweth our frame; and He remembereth that we are dust.” Psalm 103:13-14

      “Only acknowledge thine iniquity (mischief and perversity), that thou hast transgressed against the LORD thy God (Elohim – Mighty One), and ye have not obeyed My Voice, saith the LORD . . . Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I Am married unto you . . . !” Jeremiah 3:13-14, 22

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and He is Just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I John 1:9To declare (speak aloud), I say, at this time . . . Today, if ye will hear His Voice . . . His righteousness: that He might be Just, and the Justifier of him which believeth in Jesus (Yehushua – H3444) !” Romans 3:26 & Hebrews 3:7
For I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: Return unto Me; for I have redeemed thee !” Isaiah 44:22
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land . . .” Isaiah 1:18-19
      “For I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn thee.” “I hid My Face from thee for but a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee.”     Jeremiah 31:3 & Isaiah 54:8
“For God, Who commanded (spoke aloud) the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the Light of the knowledge (knowing) of the glory (character) of God . . . which is Life Eternal . . . in the face of Jesus Christ !”
II Corinthians 4:6 & ref: Exodus 33:18-23 & 34:1-7 & John 17:3

 

Let not your heart be troubled.” “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:1, 27

But now, in Christ Jesus, ye who sometimes were far off (outer court), are now made nigh by the blood of Christ . . . . For He is our peace (shalom), Who hath made both God and man one (joined in union), and hath broken down the wall of partition between us . . . by a new and living Way, which He hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say His flesh . . . !” Ephesians 2:13-14, Hebrews 10:16-20 & Matthew 27:51

And a Man shall be as an Hiding place from the wind, and a Covert from the tempest; as Rivers of Water in a dry place, as the shadow of a Great Rock in a weary land . . . !” Isaiah 32:2

And Jesus (Yehushua) said unto them . . . I Am the Bread of Life: he that cometh to Me (the Word of God) shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst . . . !”     John 1:14, 6:35 & 4:10-14

      Yea, “when the poor and needy seek water, and there is none, and their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God (Elohim – Mighty One) of Israel will not forsake them !”
Isaiah 41:17 & ref: John 4:715 & John 7:37-39

Thus saith the LORD that made thee,” “I will pour Water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour My Spirit upon thy seed, and My Blessing upon thine offspring.” Isaiah 44:2-3 & ref: Galatians 3:14*

 

And in that day . . . . Today, if thou wilt hear His Voice . . . . thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise Thee: though Thou wast angry with me, Thine anger is now turned away, and Thou Comfortedst me . . . . Behold, God is my Salvation (H3444); I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my Strength and my Song; and He also is become my Salvation* . . .

Therefore with joy shall ye draw Water out of the Wells of Salvation . . . !”     Isaiah 12:1-4 & ref: Hebrews 3:7

Look unto Me, and be ye saved (delivered, set free, rescued, healed and restored whole), all the ends of the earth, for I Am God, and there is none else !”     Isaiah 45:22

Sing unto the LORD; for He hath done excellent things . . . . Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst (heart) of thee !”     Isaiah 12:5-6
For He “Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” “He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised (beaten repeatedly) for our iniquities: the chastisement of (instruction which bought) our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.”     Matthew 8:17; Isaiah 53:5 & I Peter 2:24
