Sermon Notes

26 And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; 27 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. 28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. 29 But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come
(Mark 4:26-29 KJV)

There is no struggle involved in the Kingdom. It is not by might nor by power but by the Spirit.

An example of the power of the spoken word.

26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the Lord, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho:he shall lay the foundation thereof in his firstborn, and in his youngest son shall he set up the gates of it. 27 So the Lord was with Joshua; and his fame was noised throughout all the country
(Joshua 6:26-27 KJV)

29 And in the thirty and eighth year of Asa king of Judah began Ahab the son of Omri to reign over Israel:and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty and two years. 30 And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord above all that were before him. 31 And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him. 32 And he reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria. 33 And Ahab made a grove; and Ahab did more to provoke the Lord God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel that were before him.
34 In his days did Hiel the Bethelite build Jericho:he laid the foundation thereof in Abiram his firstborn, and set up the gates thereof in his youngest son Segub, according to the word of the Lord, which he spake by Joshua the son of Nun
(1 Kings 16:33-34 KJV)

Joshua did nothing to fulfil the word he spoke.

When the Word of God leaves your lips it will prosper in that which God has will. God doesn’t need your assistance in fulfilling the Word.

If you offer the right sacrifices unto God, the Words that you speak, even when you are gone your descendants can benefit from your words.

Another Example
1 Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the Lord; Thus saith the Lord, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria. 2 Then a lord on whose hand the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, if the Lord would make windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, thou shalt see it with thine eyes, but shalt not eat thereof.
3 And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate:and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die
(2 Kings 7:1-3 KJV)

When God’s word is spoken, power is released to make the it come to pass.

Prophetic word means self-fulfilling word. The earth by itself will bring forth.

Joseph did not strategise to become Prime Minister

9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways,
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10 For as the rain cometh down,
and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither,
but watereth the earth,
and maketh it bring forth and bud,
that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth:
it shall not return unto me void,
but it shall accomplish that which I please,
and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
12 For ye shall go out with joy,
and be led forth with peace:
the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing,
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands
(Isaiah 55:9-12 KJV)

The Spoken Word is the Power.

The Engine is Praise

4 O let the nations be glad and sing for joy:
for thou shalt judge the people righteously,
and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.
5 Let the people praise thee, O God;
let all the people praise thee.
6 Then shall the earth yield her increase;
and God, even our own God, shall bless us.
7 God shall bless us;
and all the ends of the earth shall fear him
(Psalms 67:4-7 KJV)

Practise detachment. Earnestly desire what you want but relinquish making it manifest.
