Remember how God wages war? FROM HIS MOUTH!!!
Any idea where you get that two-edged sword?
Your Jawbone of Faith
In the spirit realm, nothing goes without saying. Consider the following verses which instruct you to lift up your jawbone in the spiritual realm just like Samson did in the natural realm.
“He that hath my word, let him speak My word faithfully.” Jeremiah 23:28
“And Jesus said unto them…if ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall
say…and nothing shall be impossible unto you.” Matthew 17:20
“For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.” Matthew 12:37
“The righteousness which is of faith speaks” Romans 10:6
“But what does it say? The word is near you, even in your mouth, and in your heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach.” Romans 10:8
“Having the same spirit of faith…I believed, and therefore have I spoken” 2 Cor. 4:13
“Whosoever shall…believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.” Mk. 11:23
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue” Prov. 18:21
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth” Joshua 1:8
There are countless more Scriptures about speaking the Word into your life situations. If you want more Scripture, e-mail me.
Did Jesus use the Word? O yeah!
Matthew 12 (AMP)
28 But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out the demons, then the kingdom of God has come upon you.
29 Or how can a person (you! The son of God!) go into a strong man’s house and carry off his goods (the entire equipment of his house) without first binding the strong man? Then indeed he may plunder his house.
Using the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God, (Ephesians 6:17) you go in and bind the strong man that has stolen your joy, peace, or whatever. Wield the Sword!!! Use your jawbone!!! With a single stroke you can bind the enemy and take back your ground! (Hebrews 4:12)
But remember the warning that Jesus gave later.
Matthew 12 (AMP)
43 But when the unclean spirit has gone (you, taking the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God) out of a man [or situation], it roams through dry [arid] places in search of rest, but it does not find any.
44 Then it says, I will go back to my house from which I came out. And when it arrives, it finds the place unoccupied, swept, put in order, and decorated.
45 Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and make their home there. And the last condition of that man becomes worse than the first.
After binding the strong man (the devil), replace (speak) love, joy, and peace into the situation and don’t let anymore of the enemy’s buddies return. May I add that means that you have to keep the house in order.
In Luke 19, Jesus told a parable about a nobleman who gathered his servants and gave the money to invest while he was gone and he said to them, “Occupy (take dominion, buy the truth, don’t sell it), until I come (back).” Jesus has given you a great possession – THE WORD! You as His servant and son are to invest that great possession in this Earth to bring Heaven to Earth thru the seed of the Word.
