SUNDAY SERVICE 18TH SEPTEMBER 2016
TOPIC : UNTIL YOU DECREED, NOTHING CHANGES.
BY: PASTOR CHARLES CHUKWUEMEZIE
“And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry: And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find anything thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet. And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.”
When you find yourself in a negative situation, don’t just keep quiet. The devil might tell you that you cannot achieve success don’t just keep quiet. Say something. Tell the devil ‘I will succeed.’ People might think you are mad, but don’t just keep quiet. Whenever the devil talks, you must talk back. Answer the devil back word for word. Whenever the voice comes, counter it. Don’t accept defeat from the devil. the devil must not have the last say.
1 Sam 17:43-47 “And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.
And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.
Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. This day will the Lord deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. And all this assembly shall know that the Lord saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the Lord’s, and he will give you into our hands.”
The battle is not of arrows, Spears and shields; it’s spiritual. What you are saying matters a lot. Don’t be ignorant of the devil’s devices. If David had kept quiet at the words released by Goliath, it might have happened. Rather, David replied him with words.
Demons were carrying Goliath’s curse but the God’s Angels carried David’s words. God’s force is a higher force. For greater is He in you, you have God’s angels waiting for your decree.
Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
The supernatural controls the natural.
And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.
And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Your problems will dry from the roots, affliction will not come a second time. Have faith! Speak the word with faith.
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
4 THINGS YOUR DECREE CAN DO FOR YOU.
1. IT CREATES.
(As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
GOD SAID LET THERE BE LIGHT, AND THERE WAS…
2. IT DESTROYS.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. You choose when to destroy or give life. Jesus destroys that tree.
Genesis 3:14 “And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life.”
No wonder David made this prayer… “Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.”
3. IT BRINGS HEALING.
Luke 13:11- 12 “And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself.
And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity.”
by decree she was made whole.
4. IT BRINGS BACK TO LIFE…. RESTORATION!!!
John 11:43 “And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.” and Lazarus did come back to life.
You can decree and begin to take back what you lost.
-Even if you speak carelessly, forces responsible will still carefully carry out their duty.
-Speak life into your body all the time..
-Speak life into anything that seems dead;
-Your ministry,…… Anything.
Whatsoever we decree comes to pass!!!.
God bless you Pastor for these words. Amen
