Chapter One: Why Christians Are Weak

Many Christians are sick, poor and defeated in many areas of their lives because they have not dared to confess about themselves what the Word of God says. God has provided everything we need to live a blessed, victorious life yet most Christians are weak, sick, poor and defeated. They seem to have no real joy and they appear to be doing worse than the person who has no interest in God at all. Why is this? What Christ has done for us at the Cross is past tense. It’s already done. Yet most believers are still begging God to do what He has already done over two thousand years ago. Most Christians believe that God can do anything, yet they believe that He HAS DONE NOTHING. They are begging God to do what God has already done. For example the Word of God reveals that bornagain believers are new creatures in Christ Jesus (II Corinthians 5:17) with the very life and the very nature of God in them (I John 5:10-13). And as believers they

HAVE BEEN DELIVERED out of Satan's power and have been translated into God's kingdom Colossians 1:12-14. Colossians 1:13 “…God has delivered us out of the power of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son” If this is true, why is it that so many Christians don't look, act or talk like they're in the kingdom of God? It's because their redemption is not a reality in their lives. And the reason their redemption is not a reality in their lives is that they have never dared to confess those facts out loud with their mouths. This book will help you to discover how to tap into the power of God’s kingdom and start ruling in life. If you will practice the truths in this book you will see a dramatic change in the quality of your life in the not to distant future.

Chapter Two: A Powerful Spiritual Law: Our Words Rule Us

A spiritual law that few people realize is that our confessions (the words that we speak) rule us. You'll never rise above your confession. In Mark 11:23 Jesus tells us that we can have anything we say as long as we do not doubt in our heart. He did not say believe in your head and confess with your mouth. He said, believe in your HEART and confess with your MOUTH! Romans 10:9-10 "That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, you shall be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." That's the reason why so many church members have a lot of head knowledge of the Bible and still end up 7

defeated, sick, frustrated, poor and depressed. They have not learned to confess who they are what they have in Christ.

Chapter Three: Speaking The Word Is A Process Not A Gimmick Just because you speak something one time doesn’t mean it’s going to come to pass. But speaking the Word of God is a part of the process where you cause faith to be sown, watered and developed in your heart over a period of time. According to Jesus, words are seeds. Mark 4:14 The sower sows the Word. Words, just like seeds, must be sown before they will produce a crop. Saying it is sowing. Words work like seeds. They must be planted, watered, cultivated. They must also receive light and air. Then the seed will grow into a mature crop that can be harvested and enjoyed. But you aren’t going to plant a seed one minute and have a harvest the next minute. There is a period of time where the seed must be watered and cultivated and then after a period of time you can reap the mature crop. Saying is also watering the seed. Saying is sowing and saying is watering. 9


Changing Your World By Changing Your Words

But what is the soil? According to Mark 4:15, the heart of man is the soil where words grow and produce. The soil doesn’t care what kind of seed you put into it. It will begin to germinate whatever seed you plant whether it’s a corn seed or a weed seed. If you have been speaking words of fear, doubt, lack, hatred and worry, then your heart knows no better than to produce a crop of fear, doubt, hatred and worry. Change your words and you will change your harvest. But you must be patient as your new harvest is growing in your heart. Some people are so developed in speaking words of lack, sickness, fear and doubt that it’s going to take them a little time to change what they are reaping. As you spend time every day speaking the Word of God, your heart will begin producing life instead of death; prosperity instead of lack; health instead of sickness; joy instead of depression; and power instead of weakness. Once that seed is developed in your heart then you will be able to speak things out according to the Word and see quicker results. The more developed you get in faith and the less developed you get in fear and doubt, the quicker you will see the manifestation of the Word you are speaking. Watering the seed is just as important as sowing the seed. You sow a seed only one time, but you have to water a seed over and over. The same is true with the Word of God. Saying it once is not enough. As you spend time each day speaking the Word of God you are watering the Seed in your heart. If you want to see God’s power increase in every area of your life you must learn to plant the seeds of God’s word into your heart and water it with repeated and daily confession.

Chapter Four: Words Affect Everything

The law of confession works not only for salvation but for everything in life – GOOD or BAD. In Mark 11:23 Jesus says "...and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he says shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he says." For example, some people have more faith in Satan than God. They have more faith in the medical report than they do in the Bible report. They have morr faith in the figures in their checkbook than they do in God’s book. They believe with all their heart and say with their mouth, "I always get the flu when it comes to town." And because they believe it and say it, they get the flu. Instead they ought to start saying with their mouth, “According to Matthew 8:17, Jesus took my infirmities and bore my sickness; therefore I forbid any sickness to come upon my body!" You see, life and death are in the power of YOUR TONGUE.

Proverbs 18:21 Life and death are in the power of the tongue and

12


Changing Your World By Changing Your Words

ose who love it shall the fruit thereof.” If you talk about things pertaining to death such as fear, disease, failure, poverty and worry you are going to experience those things in your life. But you can stop speaking and claiming to have those things and you can begin to speak and claim the things that God has given you through our redemption in Christ. If you don’t like what you have in life, change what you are saying about yourself. At the end of this book there some scriptures and scriptural confessions that you can begin speaking out loud every day. If you will stay consistent, you will see supernatural results. You’ll be glad you read this book and put it into practice.

Chapter Five: How To Have A Strong And Powerful Faith

Testimony is a vital part of the faith life. If you want to develop robust faith – then continually tell what the Lord is doing for you and what the Word of God says about you. The more you talk about Him, the more real Jesus becomes to you. The less you talk about Him, the less real He is to you! Confessing the Word will cause faith to arise in your heart because “...faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. (Romans 10:17). You'll believe what you continually speak with your mouth because when you speak it you are also hearing it. In fact, faith will develop more quickly when you say it than when you hear someone else say it. Why? Because you have an inner ear. That’s why you sound differently to yourself than you do to others. That’s why the first time you heard yourself on a recording it sounded differently to you. That’s why hearing yourself speak the Word works faster then hearing someone else speak it. Your inner ear feeds the words you speak directly into your heart. So to develop strong faith, speak the word out loud every day. It’s not enough to hear a sermon or to read the Bible silently. After reading the Bible or hearing a sermon, take a few minutes to speak the scriptures aloud so that your 14


Changing Your World By Changing Your Words

inner ear can feed faith into your heart. Be a doer of the Word by speaking it and not just a reader or hearer of the Word. It won’t be long before you will see the manifestation of what you are saying!

Chapter Six: How To Get The Bible to Become Real to You Faith's confessions create realities. As far as God is concerned everything you are "In Christ" is already so. In the mind of God it’s already a fact. In the spiritual realm it’s already so. All the promises in the Bible are ours legally. The Bible is a legal document, sealed by the blood of Jesus; however it is believing and confessing it which makes it a reality to you. God wants us to enjoy and know the reality of what He has provided for us –and He has already told us how to do it through His Word. Go through the scriptures, especially the New Testament, and find the verses with "In Christ," "In Him," "In Whom," "Through Him," etc. and begin to personalize them and confess them with your mouth. Begin to say, "This is mine, this is who I am in Christ, this is what I have in Christ, and this is what I can do in Christ." Then your redemption in Christ Jesus will become a reality to you. It is already real in the spirit realm, but we want it to become real in this physical realm where we live in the flesh. I don't need physical healing when I get to heaven, I need it now. I don't need money when I get to heaven, I need it now. I don't need deliverance from Satan's bondages in heaven; I need it now in this time on earth where I live today! 16

The Bible will not become real to you until you begin to confess that the things God says about you are true. You can read the Bible, hear it preached, and even quote Bible verses, but until you begin to say with your mouth what the Bible says about you, it will seem unreal to you. I have personally experienced what I am writing to you. I made my mind up several years ago that I was going to set aside time everyday to speak the Word of God. Every single day, I began to take time to declare who I am and what I have in Christ. When I first started, it seemed like I was lying. It seemed mechanical, unreal and dry. But after several weeks of doing this daily, I had a faith “breakthrough. The words I was speaking begin to jump off of the page at me and it seemed that every word I spoke was absolutely true. I had experienced real Bible faith. My seed had finally matured and I was enjoying the crop. As soon as the Word became a reality, my circumstances began to change. My finances improved, my marriage became stronger, I had more joy and peace than I had ever had. I was triple promoted in one year and I experienced supernatural success. Therefore, take the scriptures and confessions in the next chapter and begin to say them out loud every day and even several times a day. There will be a day when they will become a reality to you. That day will be a day you will never forget and your life will never be the same. I’ve also seen this in the lives of others. I recorded a CD with scriptures pertaining to healing. I coached people to repeat the scriptures aloud and to make a confession out of them. We have testimonies of at least three with terminal cancer who were supernaturally healed 17


Changing Your World By Changing Your Words

within a time span of about five months. Each of those three people played the CD every day and repeated the healing scriptures out loud. One lady had a tumor in her esophagus. It was the size of an orange. After speaking the Word for five months, the tumor shrunk to a size smaller than a pea without any radiation or chemotherapy. When she went back to the doctor, they were amazed. They gave her a few treatments of radiation and shortly thereafter she was declared well! The same thing happened with a man who had brain cancer. The same thing happened with a woman who had cancer all over her body and was given up by the doctors to die. She was given a life expectancy of six months. But she was completely healed after five months! It will work for you also. Proverbs 4:20-22 says so. Proverbs 4:20-22 20 My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. 21 Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; 22 for they are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body. NIV Make your redemption a reality, begin to personalize God's Word and confess it daily with your mouth, Begin to talk and act as if God's Word were true because it is.
