Miracles, Signs And Wonders That Confirm The Word


Proverbs 23:12 “Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.”

The Lord desires that His people be fully informed and carefully instructed in His Word, so that they are successful in all that they do. He has not left us alone in this world; we have His very own wisdom and revelation available to us at any time that we need it. We can simply pick up our Bibles and search the Scriptures for any guidance or direction that we may require.

We have divine destinies as the sons and daughters of almighty God. He wants us to walk in the very same anointing power and authority that Jesus Christ did during His earthly ministry. However, we must be sanctified in the truth and fully equipped to serve the Lord and His people. We cannot take shortcuts when it comes to the knowledge of God’s Word and His will for us.

Believers have to be serious students of the Word before will be able to function like Christ did. We must be knowledgeable in our faith, so that we can effectively share it with others. We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God throughout the entire world. All of mankind will be impacted by our efforts and we should be very certain that we rightly divide the word of truth.

2Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

It is often difficult to study the Word and fully comprehend it. It requires special insight and heightened understanding that can only be received through the power of the Holy Spirit of God. If we pray and ask the Lord to reveal His truths to us in a relevant way, that we can apply to our lives and share with others, He will always be faithful to enlighten us in His Word.

We must be very careful in our interpretation of the Holy Scriptures. They often support and confirm one another, if we are diligent to study any given topic thoroughly. We dare not add or subtract from the Word of God. It is powerful for changing lives like nothing else can. What God says is absolute and immutable; we can never distort it to fit our own personal agendas.

The Lord has the answers to all of our problems and perplexities already worked out. We will discover that the Bible is teeming with practical advice and innumerable promises on every conceivable topic. God watches over His Word to perform it, and He will back up what He says in every instance. All that we need do is believe the truth and watch for it to manifest.

The Word of God will instruct us in righteousness and inspire us to embrace our divine destinies. If we decree and declare what almighty God says, we will see dramatic changes in all of our situations and circumstances. Nothing will remain the same. We will impact all of mankind with the words that we speak. Our words will literally change the entire world.

Jeremiah 15:16 “Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.”

We can never get too much of God’s Word to us. It is always fresh, current and relevant. It has the inherent power to change our lives as nothing else can. We should rejoice that the Lord continually speaks to His people and be avid students of His instruction. It is His heart’s desire that we prosper and succeed in everything we do now and in the Kingdom to come.

We are the people who are called by God’s name, and we must be thoroughly schooled in His way of thinking and doing things, if we will spend all of eternity in His presence. We have no human intelligence or earthly wisdom that even closely compares with His inherent brilliance. He is an expert on all matters, and He is willing to share what He knows with us.

We can be wise and knowledgeable beyond our imaginings if we tap into God’s limitless resources. He wants us walking in our divine destinies as His very own sons and daughters. If we are adequately prepared in the Word of God, nothing will be impossible to us in the critical days ahead. We will be able to change the fate of all mankind if we know God’s Word.


The Word Works On Our Behalf

Isaiah 55:9-11 “For [as] the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. 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: 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.”

The words of the Lord enlighten and challenge us to be all that God has created us to be. They are food for our spirits and provide us with the nurturance that we need to sustain us in difficult times. We are not ever pitiful and helpless. We have God’s input readily accessible to overcome all obstacles that would hinder us from achieving total success in all that we do. We have His instruction to achieve the virtually impossible.

As if that weren’t enough, we have Jesus Christ as the living Word of God to keep us on track, and lead and guide us in all we do. Through our faith, we can be victorious in this life, so we rule and reign now and in the Kingdom to come. We can grow in spiritual maturity and walk in our divine destinies, as we were designed to do from the very creation. There is nothing that will be impossible to us if we know the Word.

God’s Word teaches, warns, exhorts, convicts, encourages and edifies us. It is powerful and authoritative, infallible and immutable. It settles all disputes and serves as the basis for sound doctrine. It can create life, destroy evil, heal the sick, remit sin and even raise the dead. It is sharper than any two-edged sword and cuts right to the heart of every matter. It never returns to God void of power in all that it was meant to do.

Acts 4:20 “For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”

The Word of God is experiential. The more we learn and study it, the more real it becomes to us, and the greater its power. It will affect our lives for good and change our future. It will positively influence us, so that we begin to think like God thinks and say what He says. Our faith-based words that line up with His very own will alter the course of human events and impact all of creation, as well.

We will challenge all world governments to make certain that they line up with God’s Word and His will. There will be no more war, violence or bloodshed to settle disputes between men. Poverty and lack will be things of the past, as we share all the vast resources of the universe with one another. We will eliminate all social injustice and ensure that all of mankind is treated with dignity and respect.

All of creation will respond to our words of faith. We will command harmony between the plants and animals and take control of the climate, so that it is always temperate and predictable. There will be no more natural catastrophes that threaten loss of life and destruction to the environment. We will have total dominion over all matters on the earth and bring order and stability to all of nature.

Luke 11:28 “But he said, Yea rather, blessed [are] they that hear the word of God, and keep it.”

The Word of God is a living thing; it is meant to be activated in all of its power so that it can positively impact our lives and the world around us. We should always adhere to the truth and adopt God’s ways as our very own. It is vital that we walk in love and keep all of His commandments, so that our behavior is above and beyond reproach at all times.

We dare not compromise any of the Lord’s moral absolutes and expect to remain righteous in His eyes. He will tolerate no rebellion in any of us. Those who deliberately transgress His law will soon be judged, condemned and punished. They will be excluded from the Kingdom of God, forfeit all of its blessings and be forever banished to the eternal lake of fire.

There will be no defilement that ever dwells in God’s holy presence. The Lord, Jesus Christ, will soon return to destroy all evil off the face of the earth and cast Satan and his minions into the bottomless pit. He will judge all men and even angels to make certain that the righteous are rewarded and the wrongdoers are permanently expelled from His Kingdom.

Those who have faithfully kept God’s Word will receive manifold blessings of peace and prosperity, safety and security, joy and freedom. Christ will take vengeance on all of our enemies and totally vindicate us. He will change our mortal bodies to be like His very own; we will no longer deal with disease and death. We will live forever in His awesome presence.


Doers Of The Word

James 1:22 “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.”

It is not sufficient to just know the Word of God; we must also act on it if we wish to see tangible results. It is a powerful, living thing and we should apply it to our lives at all times. We must practice our faith and conduct ourselves according to its precepts. We ought to present our bodies as living sacrifices to almighty God and embrace our divine destinies as His sons and daughters.

It is vital that we obey the truth in the written Word and keep all of the commandments. We should also walk in love and treat others as we wish to be treated. We should share our faith as the Lord arranges our contacts, and help to set others free from demonic oppression and bondage to sin and evil. If we put our faith into action, we will see miracles, signs and wonders abound.

We will speak the Word of God in all of its power and authority, and heal the sick of all their afflictions. The blind will see; the deaf will hear; and the lame will walk again through our efforts. We will cast out devils that keep men in darkness and deception, and preach the Word of God to them, so that many others receive eternal life. We will even raise the dead back to life again.

1John 3:18 “My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.”

We will demonstrate the very love, mercy and compassion of God Himself to the entire human race. We will minister to the poor among us, so that there is no more poverty and lack. We will correct all social injustice, so that all men are treated with fairness, dignity and respect. We will speak to world governments and challenge their leaders to eradicate all war, conflict, violence and bloodshed.

All of creation is waiting for us to speak faith-filled words like God’s very own that will change the course of nature itself and set it free to glorious liberty. We will command all plants and animals to be in harmony with one another. All predatory activities will eventually cease. We will regulate the climate, so that there are no more natural disasters that threaten mankind and destroy our environment.

The sons and daughters of almighty God will revolutionize the earth and prepare it for the Kingdom of God to be ushered in. We will put our faith into action in all we think, say and do. The Lord will be pleased with us, and grant us eternal rewards for our devoted service to Him and His people. We will be appointed kings and priests to rule and reign with Jesus Christ over all nations of this world.

James 2:17-18 “Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.”

Faith alone is dead and futile; we must always apply it to our personal lives to see positive, lasting results manifested in our own situations and circumstances. We can be victorious over the world, our flesh and the devil if we know the Word of God and act on it. We cannot simply sit back and wait for God to do things for us. He has given us dominion over the earth and everything in it and He expects us to exercise it.

Believers have a definite advantage over those who are in the world. We have been given supernatural gifts of faith, wisdom and understanding to solve all of our problems and perplexities. There is nothing that is impossible to us, if we know what God says and practically apply it to our circumstances. The Lord has given us all that we need to be victorious in all that we undertake for ourselves and on behalf of others.

We must proactively live our faith if we wish to see all the necessary changes occur in our present world. Our words have power and authority to tear down all strongholds of evil and generate a dramatic difference that will impact all of mankind. We can enforce the government of almighty God and His justice system. We can eliminate all that is detrimental to us and establish peace, order and stability in all of our affairs.


Christ’s Instruction To His Disciples

John 15:14-16 “Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you. Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and [that] your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”

Jesus Christ does not simply think of believers as His followers and disciples, He considers us friends if we do what He asks of us. We must always walk according to the Word of almighty God and be diligent to do all that He tells us. His words are powerful for changing lives as never before, but we must act on them and speak them out of our own mouths to bring forth positive results.

The Lord has given us practical advice on every conceivable matter. If we do what He tells us to do, we will be more than conquerors in all of our affairs. We will impact the fate of the entire world and change the course of human events to line up with God’s express will for mankind. We will bring peace, order and stability to this earth and prepare it for Jesus Christ to rule and reign.

The whole planet has to be cleansed and purified of all defilement. We must overcome all evil with good and establish God’s way of doing things as the norm. We cannot be remiss in any of our duties or important work will remain undone, and the Lord will be forced to recruit others who are more cooperative with His plans. We have divine destinies to fulfill as the Body of Christ.

Luke 10:2 “Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly [is] great, but the labourers [are] few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.”

We are Jesus Christ’s very own hands, feet and voice on this earth. We have a divine anointing. We should pray that the Lord empowers more of us to serve Him in these last days before He returns to us. The harvest is full and the workers are few. Not everyone will accept the Lord’s eternal calling on their lives. Some may be too caught up in their own personal affairs to respond to His wishes.

Others are lost in darkness and deception and are oblivious to what lies ahead of us. Many are not well schooled in God’s Word and are inadequately prepared to serve Him and His people. There are some who are rebellious and will never fulfill God’s plans for them. Still others play church, but their hearts are far from the Lord; they will never realize the impact that each life has on that of another.

Only those who sincerely know the Word of almighty God Himself and are sanctified in the truth, will be able to walk as Christ Himself did in the critical days that lie ahead. There will be a remnant of believers who appropriate all the divine power and authority that is available to us. We will change the entire earth and everyone in it to prepare for the everlasting Kingdom of God and all its benefits.

We will walk in miracles, signs and wonders and alter the fate of all mankind. This world will not be totally destroyed, but it will be cleansed and purified of all its defilement. We will eliminate all wars and violence; eradicate poverty and lack; correct social injustice and make certain that all men are treated with fairness, dignity and respect. We will teach others to dwell in love, peace and unity.

John 15:7 “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.”

Nothing will be impossible to the Body of Christ as we serve the Lord and His people. We will operate in the anointing that Jesus did when He walked the earth. We will resume His ministry where He left off two thousand years ago. We will do the works that Christ did, and even greater works, since He has now gone to be with the Father and sent the Holy Spirit to us.

We will preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God with power and conviction, and see many souls saved and baptized to eternal life. We will heal the sick, so that none of us are afflicted in any way. We will cast out demons that hold men in darkness and evil, and set them free to be converted to our faith. We will even raise the dead back to life once again as Jesus did.

Whatever we need to complete our goals will indeed be given to us. All that we must do is ask the Lord for what we require to be successful. He will move both heaven and earth on our behalf. We will have legions of ministering angels assigned to support us in all our efforts. We will change the fate of many lives and help gather men into the everlasting Kingdom of God.

Luke 9:26 “For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and [in his] Father's, and of the holy angels.”

We dare not let fear, doubt or unbelief deter or detain us from fulfilling our divine destinies. We cannot permit the opinions of men to influence us in any way. Nor can we allow any feelings of shame stop us from preaching the Word of God. We must know who we are in Christ and remember whom we serve at all times. Our goal is to prepare all mankind to enter into the Kingdom of God.

Men will resist our evangelistic efforts; the devil will try to interfere with our work. We will have an uphill battle to fight for our faith. But it will all be worth it, when we gather in the full end-time harvest of souls that is necessary before heaven is brought to this earth. We will change the fate of the entire human race if we are willing and obedient to serve the Lord in implementing His plans for us.

Our God will soon be in an intimate relationship with us. He will meet all of our needs even before we ask Him. We will have peace and prosperity, joy and freedom, health and longevity for all time. Christ will protect us from all harm and give us safety and security in His very presence. There will be no good thing that we ever lack. The Kingdom of God will be a veritable paradise on the earth.

If we are faithful to serve the Lord as He directs us, we will receive many generous rewards for our devotion to Him and to His people. He will share His very own honor and glory with us. Our names will be a praise on the earth, and all men will look up to us. We will judge all men and even angels, and even be appointed kings and priests of God to rule and reign with Christ for all eternity.

John 14:23 “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”

The Lord, Jesus Christ, will soon return to this earth to set up His everlasting Kingdom. He will destroy all evil in the wrath of His coming and rid the entire earth of all its defilement. No evil will ever enter into His Kingdom. Our heavenly Father will dwell there Himself, and no evil can be in His holy presence. If we have believed His Word and sanctified ourselves in its truth, we will be able to actually live with Him.

No one who denies the Word of almighty God will be able to enter in to Christ’s Kingdom. We must believe that Christ is indeed the Son of God who died to save us from our sins and was raised again from the dead. We must be baptized in water and the Holy Spirit and be obedient to do what the Lord asks of us. All those who are committed to sin and rebellion will be expelled from God’s presence to the lake of fire.

Only those who obey the Word and walk in love will receive eternal life and all of its many blessings. There will be endless peace and prosperity, total joy and freedom for all of the righteous. Christ will protect us from all harm and take vengeance on all our enemies. He will change our mortal bodies to be like His very own, and we will see our children and our children’s children for all generations to come.


The Great Commission

Matthew 28:18-20 “And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen.””

Jesus Christ was the captain of our salvation and the firstborn of many brethren, the Bible tells us. He is our role model for righteousness and obedience. We were created to function on this earth, just as Jesus Himself did at one time. We have eternal callings as sons and daughters of almighty God. We will resume Christ’s ministry where He left off and gather many more souls into the everlasting Kingdom of God.

We will preach the Gospel to all men, women and children that we might encounter. Everyone will be given an opportunity to know the truth and walk in it, so that they can receive eternal life and all its many blessings. We will share our faith with power and conviction and baptize all those who desire to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. Everyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will be saved.

The Body of Christ will teach the Lord’s commandments and encourage all of mankind to obey them. We will be anointed for calling in the full, end-time harvest. Every race, tongue and nation will be able to hear and receive God’s Word. Everyone will be challenged to sanctification in the truth. God will be glorified in all that we do, and we will change the fate of the entire human race through our evangelistic efforts.

John 14:12-14 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do [it].”

Christ has promised us His very own anointing to accomplish all that we must do in the critical days that lie ahead. We have inherited awesome, divine power and authority to operate just as He did during His earthly ministry. We will do the works that He did, and even greater works, since He has gone to be with the Father and sent the Holy Spirit to be our Counselor.

Whatever we require to be successful, will indeed be given to us. We are sacred vessels for the Spirit, and we will be able to accomplish mighty feats in Jesus’ name. We will heal the sick, cast out demons and even raise the dead back to life, as Christ Himself once did. We will destroy all evil and overcome it with good, as we usher in the Kingdom of almighty God.

We will work miracles, signs and wonders in Jesus’ name and take back this entire world from Satan, the enemy of our souls. Nothing will be impossible to us. We will restructure all human governments and their economies. There will be no more war and violence, poverty and lack anywhere. We will establish Kingdom principles of fairness, justice and equality.

All of creation will be restored to its original beauty and balance. We will speak order and stability to all of nature and see dramatic changes on the earth. Plants and animals will be in harmony with one another and subject to man’s dominion once again. We will regulate the climate and reverse the effects of all pollution. There will be no more contamination or destruction.

Mark 16:17-18 “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.”

God’s way of doing things will soon prevail on earth as it is in heaven. Every creature will be positively affected. Nothing will remain the same as it is now. Men will have an opportunity to be saved to eternal life, and nature will be renewed and restored. This world and everything in it will be prepared for the return of Jesus Christ to rule and reign in His Kingdom for all of eternity.

Those who believe in our Lord and Savior will revolutionize the entire world on His behalf. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions. The blind will see; the deaf will hear; the lame will walk. We will tear down all demonic strongholds that hold men in bondage to sin and evil. They will hear the Gospel of the Kingdom, and be set free to inherit eternal life and all of its many benefits.

We will establish order and stability in all of nature and set all creatures free to share in the glorious liberty of the sons of God. There will finally be peace on this earth; we will restructure all human governments so that they can be absorbed into the everlasting Kingdom of God. There will be no more poverty and lack or social injustice of any kind. All men will be treated with dignity and respect.

Miraculous signs and wonders will attest to the Word of almighty God as it operates through us. We will speak in spiritual tongues, cast out devils of all types and heal the sick of every disease. We will even raise the dead back to life once again and put the very last enemy – death – underneath Christ’s feet. We will glorify our God in all that we do and have supernatural protection from harm.


Speaking The Word In Spiritual Tongues

Acts 2:4 “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

One of the manifestations of the baptism in the Holy Spirit of God is the gift of spiritual tongues. It is not only possible, but desirable, to speak in our supernatural prayer language as the Lord gives utterance to us. It will enable us to communicate more directly with our Creator and hear back from Him with increased clarity, plus minimal distraction and distortion of His Word.

So too, the enemy cannot penetrate our communications if we pray and speak in tongues. It is sheer gibberish to him and to all human beings that are unfamiliar with it. However, speaking in our prayer language is always beneficial to us because the Holy Spirit Himself intercedes on our behalf. Sometimes we are so distressed, that all we can do is groan in our spirits.

Speaking in tongues is a sign to the unbeliever, as well. Only those who are baptized in the Holy Spirit are able to speak and pray in their spiritual language. It is not easily comprehended and requires interpretation, so that others can be edified. If we speak in an unknown tongue, we should also ask the Lord to decipher it for us, so that our human understanding is total and complete.

1Corinthians 14:6 “Now, brethren, if I come unto you speaking with tongues, what shall I profit you, except I shall speak to you either by revelation, or by knowledge, or by prophesying, or by doctrine?”

Speaking in spiritual tongues should not become a Holy Ghost “dog and pony show.” It was never intended to give one man an advantage over another, nor was it to be used for theatrical showmanship. The ability to speak and pray in an unknown spiritual language is a gift of the Holy Spirit of God to those who believe in Him and wish to enter into a deeper relationship with almighty God.

It will strengthen us if we pray in our spiritual prayer language and edify us as nothing else can. It is direct revelation from the Lord to our human spirits that is carefully encoded for our privacy and protection. The devil cannot interfere with our comprehension if we pray in tongues. At best, he can try to convince us that our prayer language is bogus and that we are not hearing from God, as we should.

However, when we are gathered together in a corporate setting, many have the ability to speak in tongues and others are present to interpret. We need both to edify the church, together with the other gifts of prophecy, words of wisdom and words of knowledge. All supernatural manifestations are available to us as believers, but the Holy Spirit gives us gifts according to His own specific purpose.

1Corinthians 14:39 “Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy, and forbid not to speak with tongues.”

We should never try to quench the Holy Spirit of almighty God. He gives us gifts to benefit us in every way. We should all desire that we receive and regularly utilize our spiritual manifestations. They were intended to benefit us as individuals and as a church body. They are evidence to unbelievers and will amaze them that the Lord truly shows Himself to His people.

There are some who would deter us from speaking and praying in tongues. They say it is blasphemous, and that these spiritual gifts were only given to the early church at the original feast of Pentecost. However, there are many who are disciples of Christ today, who routinely walk in the Holy Spirit and have genuine spiritual revelation, prophecy and tongues available to them.

If we pray and ask the Lord for deeper insight into His motives and methods, we will discover that He gives good gifts to men that will enhance our understanding of deep, spiritual mysteries and help us to succeed in winning others to Him. All spiritual manifestations have value and relevance to our lives and are freely accessible to any who choose to be baptized in the Holy Spirit.


Preaching And Teaching The Word

1Thessalonians 2:4 “But as we were allowed of God to be put in trust with the gospel, even so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God, which trieth our hearts.”

We have been sanctified by God’s Word and fully instructed in His way of doing things. He has imbued us with divine power and authority to share our faith, as He arranges our contacts. We must preach the good news of the Kingdom of God in all its power, so that men can be set free from their bondage to sin and evil. We cannot dilute the Word or water down the conviction that it brings.

It stands alone in its ability to change lives as never before. It is mighty for tearing down strongholds of resistance and ignorance. It will bring light and life to all who know and love it. The Word will open men’s eyes to all that the Lord has in mind for them and give them hope and confidence for their future. If we rely on God’s words, we will never be left ashamed or empty-handed.

The fate of all mankind is at stake and we have been entrusted with their future. We will challenge all men to seek the truth and be persuaded into believing in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Without faith in Him, they will perish. However, if they do believe in Christ, obey the Word of God, and walk in love, they will be able to receive the gift of eternal life and all of its many blessings.

2Timothy 4:2 “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.”

Christ gave us an express command to preach the Word of God in all of its power and authority in the days to come, so that every man woman and child on the face of the planet could have an equal opportunity to hear the truth and be saved to eternal life. We must take our divine commission seriously and share our faith, so that no one who is sincere is denied entry into the Kingdom of God.

Unless men believe in Jesus Christ and all that He did for us, they will be condemned in their own ignorance. Salvation is readily available to all those who wish to receive it. The Gospel is being preached with conviction to every race, tongue and nation of the world. If men choose to steadfastly refuse the truth and rebel against almighty God, they will be punished in the eternal lake of fire.

We must reprove, exhort and persuade all those we meet to accept Christ as their Lord and Savior or they will perish. None of us is righteous in our own strength; all of mankind requires redemption by the Blood of Jesus. However, none of us is too incorrigible that we cannot be saved from all of our sins. We can appropriate our right standing with God and spend all eternity in His presence.

1Corinthians 2:13 “Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.”

God’s Word is sharper than any two-edged sword. It can discern the thoughts of a man and also reveal the intent of his heart. It will dispel all darkness and deception and eliminate chaos and confusion. We will speak the Word and challenge all men to believe the truth. They will no longer have an excuse for wicked behavior. We will reveal all that we know, so that they can be set free just as we have been.

We will encourage them to believe in Jesus Christ and be baptized in His name. Their lives will change as never before and they will become the sons and daughters of almighty God Himself. They will receive the free gift of eternal life and all the promises for righteousness. Should they miss the mark and sin after receiving their salvation, they can always repent and be restored to right standing once again.

The Lord is ever faithful to share special gifts with those who give His Word first place in their lives. If we will ask Him for the baptism in the Holy Spirit, He will impart His very own Spirit to us. It will lead us and guide us into all that God has planned for us. We will be strengthened and empowered to embrace our divine destinies. We will comprehend deep mysteries of God that only His Spirit can reveal.

We will see that we are created in His very image and likeness, and that we have dominion over everything in this world. We will be anointed to serve the Lord and His people in divine power and authority that is unmatched. We will take back the earth and prepare it for the Kingdom of God to be ushered in. We will be appointed kings and priests of God to rule and reign with Christ Himself for all of eternity.


Miracles, Signs And Wonders That Confirm The Word

Hebrews 2:3-4 “How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard [him]; God also bearing [them] witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?”

There is so much more to the Word of God than simply the salvation message. While that is wonderful in and of itself, it is not the end of God’s promises. It is only the beginning of all that we have in store for us as believers in the Lord, Jesus Christ. We will do the very things that Jesus did during His earthly ministry, and even greater works, since He has returned to be with His Father.

The Lord always backs up His Word in power and authority. He bears witness to all that He says with miracles, signs and wonders that attest to its verity. He grants His mature sons and daughters awesome gifts in His Holy Spirit, so that they can manifest His Word for all of mankind to see. In the days ahead, men, women, and even children, will walk in a supernatural anointing.

Those who have sanctified themselves in the truth and presented their bodies as living sacrifices will be called to be members of the Body of Christ on this earth. We will heal the sick of all their afflictions; cast out all demons that keep men in bondage to sin and evil; and even raise the dead back to life once again. We will operate in the miraculous realm and glorify God in all we do.

Nothing will be done in our own strength. The Holy Spirit will operate in us and through us to do the works. The Lord will show Himself strong in His people and make a powerful statement to all of mankind. He will demonstrate that He is still in charge of all His creation. Nothing will remain the same; the entire universe will be impacted by the manifest power and authority of God.

Acts 14:3 “Long time therefore abode they speaking boldly in the Lord, which gave testimony unto the word of his grace, and granted signs and wonders to be done by their hands.”

There will soon be a global manifestation of God’s glory to attract all of mankind to the Gospel message. Those who believe in His name and all that He did for us will serve the Lord, Jesus Christ, as He has commissioned us to do. We will preach the good news of the Kingdom of God and call all men to repentance. We will see many souls converted, saved and baptized in Jesus’ name.

We will work miracles, signs and wonders to back up the Word of almighty God. The blind will see; the deaf will hear; the lame will walk. There will be no sick and infirm among us as we enter into the Kingdom of God. We will see mass healings and creative miracles performed, where people receive lost limbs and missing body parts to restore them to total health and complete wholeness.

Nothing will be in any way impossible to us. All that we do will be done through the unction of the Holy Spirit. We will cast out demons and deliver men from their bondage to sin and evil. We will bind Satan and all his minions from operating in men’s lives, and set them free to be what they were intended to be from the creation. We will positively impact many lives and overcome evil with good.

2Corinthians 4:7 “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.”

God’s Word and His awesome power will be reflected in all that we say and do. We will challenge all world governments to rethink their policies for dealing with their constituents and their neighbors. We will eradicate all wars, violence and conflict in our human relations and eliminate all social injustice. All of mankind will eventually be treated with fairness, dignity and respect, as God desires.

There will soon be peace, order and stability established on the earth, so that the Kingdom of God can be ushered in without further delay. We will enforce the government of God and His justice system, so that men everywhere enjoy true freedom. We will rid the earth of greed and covetousness and destroy all poverty and lack. The vast resources of the universe will be shared equally among us.

All creation will be renewed and restored according to the powerful Word of God. His very own sons and daughters will take total dominion over nature and establish order and stability, beauty and balance. The plants and animals will all be in harmony once again, and subject to man. We will speak to the climate and it will be regulated, so that there are no more natural catastrophes that cause destruction.

Mark 16:20 “And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with [them], and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.”

Disciples of the Lord, Jesus Christ, will revolutionize the entire earth in the days ahead. All of mankind will know that we are called of almighty God Himself to take back this world and everything in it for our Lord and Savior. Nothing will remain the same. The entire planet will be evangelized with the Word of God. There will be mass conversions and entire cities and countries will believe, be saved and baptized.

Every man, woman and child in every nation of the world, who desires to hear the truth, will have an equal opportunity to repent of sin and receive the free gift of eternal life. We will teach them how to walk in love and obey all of God’s commandments to us, so their righteousness is always above and beyond reproach. They will become eligible to enter into the everlasting Kingdom of God and enjoy all of its many benefits.

We will make certain that there are no sick and infirm among us as we enter into the Kingdom of God. Everyone will be healthy and well. We will perform creative miracles, and people will have lost limbs restored and be made whole. We will cast out demons and men will be freed from all sorts of addictions and mental illnesses. We will even raise the dead back to life once again, and defeat death once and for all.

Very soon now, Christ will return to us in all of His power and glory and we will deliver His Kingdom to Him. He will judge all men and even angels to determine who will be with Him for all of eternity. The righteous will shine with His glory and be blessed, but all the rebellious will be banished to the lake of fire.

He will cast Satan and all his minions into the bottomless pit, so that no evil ever contaminates His people.

Daniel 4:3 “How great [are] his signs! and how mighty [are] his wonders! his kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion [is] from generation to generation.”

The Word of God is powerful for changing those things that require His divine intervention. Jesus Christ is the living Word and He will soon return to cleanse and purge the whole earth and prepare it for the rule and reign of the Kingdom of God. He will touch down on the Mount of Olives outside Jerusalem and cause a global earthquake of such scope and magnitude that it will change the face of the entire world.

All evil will be destroyed in the wrath of His coming. There will be nothing left that can harm, defile or contaminate our God and His people. Jesus will raise all the dead back to life once again, so that they can face judgment with the rest of us. Some will be saved to eternal life and others will be forever punished. The righteous will receive new, glorious, resurrection bodies that are like Christ’s very own.

The entire creation will be peaceful, stable and orderly once again. We are returning to the original beauty, bounty and balance of the Garden of Eden, with no downside this time. The Kingdom of God will be a veritable paradise on this earth for both God and man. Our heavenly Father will actually come and take up residence with His people. There will never be a separation between God and man ever again.

The Lord will be a loving Father to us, as He has always desired. He will nurture and protect us from all harm. We will have endless blessings of peace and prosperity and thrive in His presence. He will meet all of our needs in abundance from the vast resources that the universe has to offer. We will dwell in love, peace and unity with both men and angels and enjoy our offspring for all the generations to come.

This world will not ever end, but it will line up with the express will and the Word of almighty God Himself. There will be no more wars, violence and conflict. Poverty and lack will be things of the past. All pain and suffering, disease and death will be blotted from our memories. There will be no devastation and destruction of this planet. Heaven will come to this earth in the everlasting Kingdom of God.
