God’s Words, Satan’s words and your words (Stephen J Hales) 

There are three main voices that your spirit will hear as you walk out your Christian faith, they are God’s Word (Both His written Word and His Spirit talking to you) Satan’s word and finally your words. Faith comes by hearing God’s Word, fear comes by hearing Satan’s word and your words are the deciding factor!

The words you agree with will be the words that you speak. Life and death are in the power of the tongue, if you will speak God’s Word it will always produce life, conversely if you speak Satan’s words they will always produce death. The only way to be faith filled and fear free is to confess God’s Word in faith. I have seen this work so many times in my own life and in the lives of many other people. Jesus Himself said that we have what we say (Mark 11:23) I know people don’t like to hear that, but it is the truth nevertheless, I’m not going to argue with Jesus! Are you? No the Bible says, “Let God be true and every man a liar.” I don’t mind saying it, if any man, even if he is a preacher, denies what Jesus said in Mark 11:23 then he is a liar! The absolute truth is that your words dominate your life, words bring images to your spirit and mind, word are containers, they contain whatever is spoken. For instance if harsh words have been spoken between a man and his wife and you just happen to be visiting, you can tell by the atmosphere that something is wrong. If you were to close your eyes and I said dog, in your minds eye you would see a dog, it may be your own dog; however if I said, big black and white dog then that is what you will see. Why? Because words paint pictures on the canvas of your heart. When you speak God’s word it will paint the image of whatever it have promised on your heart, you will then conceive that word in your spiritual womb, and by holding fast to your confession you will give birth to the promise. The same thing is true in the negative, if you speak Satan’s word you will get the same results but in the negative stream. Your words are the deciding factor, agree with God, and speak His Words and you will get positive results; speak Satan’s word and the opposite is true. Make the right choice today and decide to confess the Word of God no matter what.

Reigning in Life

By Dr.Stephen J. Hales

For if by one man’s offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. Rom 5:17

The Weymouth and Amplified translations, say, “Reign as Kings in Life” The born again child of God is meant to be reigning as a king over Satan, demons, sickness and over all of life’s problems. We are the head and not the tail, we are above and not beneath, we were created to be the master of all life, not the mastered. One of the ways that we are to reign in life as a king is through righteousness. Look at our text again, “They which receive….the gift of righteousness shall reign.” As a child of God you have received the gift of righteousness, notice that righteousness is a gift it is not something that you earn or maybe one day will be spiritually grown up enough to become. You are right now the very righteousness of God, 2 Cor 5:21 says, “For he hath made him (Jesus) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” Let me tell you that you will never be any more righteous than you are you right now! You are a righteous creation created in the very image of God. To reign in life as a king you must become righteous minded. The Bible says, “Awake to righteousness and sin not.” To become righteous minded is to be aware of your right standing with God. When you become conscious of this your righteousness becomes a spiritual force, you will have more confidence to lay hands on the sick, pray more boldly and exercise your authority over Satan, sickness and demons.
