THE VISION AND THE MIRACULOUS
I want to talk to you today about “The Vision and the Miraculous.” In a previous podcast teaching we discussed “Removing the Barriers” so that you can EXPAND your circle(s) of influence – enlarge your tent … change your thinking ... THINK BIG – so God can increase you!
Barriers can be thoughts and thoughts can be barriers, such as:
Your past life (failures or sin);
Don't look back on failures. Meditate on your successes. Also, we discussed MEDITATING God's Word. There is something to the old expression: “What you see is what you get.” The Proverbs tell us: “For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” (Proverb 23:7)
To SEE with the mind's eye … that is, to envision … can encompass the following: imagination, thinking, and decision making. To “cut out” with the mind's eye is to SEE IT, or to THINK IT upon the tablet of your heart: your human spirit, the “inner” man.
In Job 22:28 we read, “You shall decree a thing, and it shall be established unto you ...” In the original Hebrew language, the word “decree” is a primitive root form of the word “gazar,” which means “to cut out exclusively, or to decide.” In its primitive form it is used also as a “quarrying” term … as in cutting out stone from a rock quarry. It means more than to “say” or to “speak.” It conveys the meaning of “cutting something out in your mind's eye.” That is, “to envision (to make a vision), to decide upon it, and confess it” – and then it will be establihed unto you!
To decree is the progenitor of heart belief and mouth confession. It is BOTH the nucleus and the “all-encompassing” embryo of initiating great moves of the Holy Spirit on Planet Earth. This is why we need to SPEND TIME MEDITATING GOD'S WORD. We're NOT talking about New Age type meditation, which can actually be used – and even energized – by demonic forces. We're talking about meditating GOD'S WORD so we know HOW to work in alignment with our Father in Heaven, Jehovah God.
When we meditate the word of God, we learn His principles; we also learn WHAT He wants (what His will is for the nations and for us). We also learn HOW to please Him by living holy and doing His will: reaching people and nations for Messiah. Then we can DECREE a thing because we have decided upon it … we have to cut it out in our mind's eye. We therefore BELIEVE it in our heart: the Holy Spirit has impressed the Will of the Father upon our mind and deposited it in our human spirit.
We have seen the Will of God in our mind's eye and have decided to implement it. We decree it by seeing, believing, and speaking. We ACT on our decision after we have HEARD from God … and it comes to pass. We PLAN in the Spirit; we IMPLEMENT in the Spirit. We BELIEVE and KNOW that it will come to pass and therefore we RECEIVE it for the glory of the Father.
Faith is wonderful … but it's even better when you have a PLAN to go along with your faith. If YOUR PLAN fits into GOD'S PLANS, you will have God's faith … and God's faith ALWAYS WORKS!
Baruch haba b'Shem Adonai.
