KEY SCRIPTURE: John 5:8 KJV “Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.”
The Lord Jesus after a short discourse with the impotent man asked him to rise up take up his bed and walk. The man instantly took his bed and walked away. This time when the Lord instructed him to rise, he did not consider how difficult it has been all these thirty-eight years. He just acted on the word and to his own amazement he rose up and walked away. The word of God has life giving power. Hebrews 4:12 reads “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. The old English word ‘quick’ also alive, meaning it can give life.
This word means the word has the ability to create or perform what it says. It does not matter how weak, how sinful or even how dead you may be. All you need is to believe and act on the word. If you are bound by a particular sin or weakness, do not wonder and ask how can this word change me. All you need to do is to know and believe that this word of God is extremely powerful and potent. Just accept the word and act on it. If it is about healing just do not wonder the degree of seriousness of the disease. Believe and act on the word.
About two weeks ago a member of our congregation came to me and said that he just received a call that the baby of a friend of his, has just developed complication from an inoculation given to the baby. This brother came to me with this case, because I had earlier given him a word of instruction to tell that particular sister not to inoculate that particular baby. I asked him did you tell her not to inoculate the baby? He said yes, and added he does not know why she disobeyed the instruction. He then left. After about an hour he received a call from the lady that the child had died. I was shocked, yet I asked the Lord can something be done about this case? The Lord said, yes something could be done. I went to this brother asked him to call the lady for me. When he gave me the phone she was crying and wailing. I asked her to stop crying and follow my instructions. I asked her to go for water, and as she responded she has gotten some, I prayed over the water and asked her to sprinkle the water over the lifeless baby. All this while she had taken the baby to the hospital and he was with the nurses. She went to the nurse took the baby from her and sprinkled the water on the baby. I say to God ‘s glory the baby instantly started breathing and then cried as well. She just acted on the word and the life in the word brought life to her dead baby.
