Grace to you, and peace be multiplied through the revealed knowledge of God and Jesus The Christ by way of the Holy Spirit.
Great things are happening in God with the body of Christ these days, and I want to share what may be the most powerful revelation you can use today. To increase your spiritual maturity and might in Christ there is a kingdom, and in this kingdom there is a language that the kingdom is governed by. This kingdom is spiritual, and dominates over the physical and soulical kingdom. Your enemy does not want you to know this and does not want you to act on what you are now about to read. This secret has been held back (not by God) for many years, yet it is woven into all the Word of God. This revelation will be attacked vehemently, but if you will press in to know more about it you will not allow this revelation to slip from your consciousness.
Often we will hear someone say, “will you bless the food?" Or again you will hear one say after they hear a sneeze, “God Bless You. " So when one is asked to bless the food, they will begin to pray asking God to bless the food that He has given them in Jesus Name Amen. This is not blessing the food, nor is God going to bless you because you sneezed. Where the kingdom of God is concerned, we will have to look to God to see how He blessed something, and then follow Him as dear children. Is that alright? OK.
When we say God bless you, it is a word of encouragement not empowerment. What we need is to be empowered. These phrases seem religiously correct, but the truth is many opportunities to be a blessing are missed by ill placed phrases. By simply seizing these opportunities as they arise, we ascend to our kingdom citizenship privileges, and take authority where all the earth is our territory. Let's look at Genesis chapter one.
"1. IN THE beginning God (prepared, formed, fashioned, and) created the heavens and the earth.
2. The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters.
3. And God said, Let there be light; and there was light. " Gen. 1:1-3
A little background here: The Phrase “let there be" in Hebrew is just one word. It takes three English words to say just this one word in the Hebrew language. It would literally be read as follows. “And God said light Be, and light was!" Gen. 1:3
God released the blessing he had for earth by calling for a particular thing to be. God surely has the power to bless a thing, or a person. We have been instructed to follow God as dear children.
"Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children. " Ephes. 5:1
Now before you prejudge this lesson, let us see if there are any examples in the Word to support what I am saying. Is there anyone else in the Word blessing someone else by declaring them to be? First let's look further into Genesis chapter 24 and see what we can find there.
"And they blessed Rebekah, and said unto her, Thou art our sister, be thou the mother of thousands of millions, and let thy seed possess the gate of those which hate them. " Gen. 24:60
Look at that believers! It seems to me that there are some who know the power to bless is in their hands, and that they released the blessing with the word ‘be. ’ They commanded the blessing as well. Let me remind you that Rebekah was barren at the time.
"And Isaac entreated the LORD for his wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was entreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived. " Gen. 25:21
To be barren means that Rebekah was incapable of having children. I have heard statements that Sarah, and Rebekah were not blessed with a miracle, and they just hadn't had any children up to that time in their life. Come on, give me a break we don't call every woman that hasn't had a child yet barren.
"But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God. 31. You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.
32. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.
34. Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?"
OK, if you thought that I might be stretching this point a little bit, and maybe bordering on heresy then check out the verses above again. The angel is releasing the blessing of the virgin birth by saying you will be with child, and He shall be great, and He will be called the Son of the Most High. Then Mary wants to know how shall this be. Mary wants to know how, not if it will be. She was not questioning the power of, she was wanting to know what method in which it was to be. We should be careful not to question if it will be, but it's Ok to ask how it will be. Still not sure yet? OK, lets see if the Lord Himself taught to be, or not to be where faith is concerned.
"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. " Mark 11:23
This is the famous faith verse that we hold to so dearly, and now you have been given more command of this verse by simply understanding the power of be. In this verse the word “be" releases the blessing to speak the instructions to the object, and then tell it where to go. Just think of how this revelation can help your faith life. Think of the many ways you can put this power to use. This is our creative right of passage given to us from God almighty through Paul.
"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. " Eph. 6:10-11
We are told to be strong in the Lord and the power of His might. His might is in His Word, and His Word is in all those who meditate and speak to believe it. If we can get this fact that we are not of this world, we will get this revelation of being. We are in a real kingdom, and it works in the realm of faith. Everything that is subject to the power of be is subject to the Word of God. I don't know about you but this pumps me up. I've become even more excited about my prayer life, and my ministry life as well.
"This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
9. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. "
The blessing of strength and courage was released to Joshua in the word be. It would have been just fine for Joshua to say to himself from that moment on, “Joshua Be Strong. Joshua Be Not Afraid, Joshua Be Not Dismayed, Amen. " He would be reinforcing the blessing again unto himself, and faith would have come by hearing, and hearing the Word of God. That is good brother Paul you may be saying, but what about any other applications of this? I am glad you asked.
"And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
38. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
39. And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
40. And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?"
You should notice here that Jesus released the blessing, and then called the name of the blessing “still. " He spoke to the mountain and told it what to do. Remember Mark 11:23? You should also see that if you are experiencing a great storm in your life, your miracle will be equal to the might of the storm and give you a great calm!
I realize that you can say God bless you as a word of encouragement, but God has blessed you with all spiritual blessings in Christ, and oh how insidiously has satan tried to hide this fact. We must decide to keep the compassion of The Christ in the forefront by keeping what He so dearly paid the cost for. He is the High Priest of our confession of faith, and He is worthy of all praise and adoration.
"And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
12. Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. " Rev. 5:11-12
In verse twelve we see that our King was slain to receive something. What was it? Power, Riches, Wisdom, Strength, Honour, Glory, and Blessing! Get it? He was slain to receive the power to bless, and not for Himself. It was for us who are using our foreign jurisdiction, to make the Word of our King legislation and policy right here in the earth. Go for it child of God, Be blessed!
