SPIRIT BREATHED WORDS
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.
God created everything with the Word. All things were made by Him (the Word) and without Him (the Word) nothing was made that was made.
I hear many ministers teach Genesis 1:4- every verse where it states, "And God Said" and repeat it over and over throughout the scriptures. One thing they forget to do is to read verse 2.
2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
The Spirit of God was hovering, brooding, waiting over the face of the waters. What was He waiting for? The Spirit was waiting for the Word to come forth so He could breathe on it and make it flesh. Before God created anything, the Holy Spirit moved upon the Word to bring it into being.
John 1:14 states, "14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth."
The Word became flesh. It takes the Holy Spirit breathing on the Word to bring it to life.
There are over 700 promises in the Bible that are "potentially" yours but, just parroting the Word is not going to do it. What? You mean if I confess the Word it will not come to pass?
First, in order for faith for the promise comes from hearing and hearing the Word of God. Romans 10:17. Not by hearing your pastor preach the Word because chances are he/she is not preaching the promise you need to hear often enough for the Word to be made flesh. Faith comes from you hearing your own voice reading the Word you are standing on, over and over in your own hearing. Then, you must do Joshua 1:8. 8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
You must read the Word out loud continually in your hearing. Meditate, mutter, chew on the Word day and night. It must become real to you. Beyond believing. You Must KNOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT YOU KNOW!
God took me to Ezekiel 37.
3 And He said to me, "Son of man, can these bones live?
So I answered, "O Lord God, You know.
4 Again He said to me, "Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! 5 Thus says the Lord God to these bones: "Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live. 6 I will put sinews on you and bring flesh upon you, cover you with skin and put breath in you; and you shall live. Then you shall know that I am the Lord.
7 So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone. 8 Indeed, as I looked, the sinews and the flesh came upon them, and the skin covered them over; but there was no breath in them.
9 Also He said to me, "Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, Thus says the Lord God: "Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live. 10 So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army.
Once Ezekiel started to prophesy to the bones, they started to come together, bone to bone; sinews, muscles, flesh but, there was no life in them so there they were. God then told Ezekiel to prophesy to the breath (the Holy Spirit) to breath on them so they may live.
In order for your Words to become living flesh or to manifest, the Holy Spirit must breathe on them. Romans 4:17 (as it is written, "I have made you a father of many nations in the presence of Him whom he believed "God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;
It is God through His Holy Spirit that gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did. We are to do the same thing. To bring life to dead things through hearing the Word, meditating on it day and night, prophesying to the breath, (the Holy Spirit) to breathe life into the scripture you are standing on.
In Genesis 2:7 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
God must breathe on a thing before it can live. Once you have heard the Word, meditated on, God has breathed on it, then you speak.
David said in Psalms 39:3 My heart was hot within me; While I was musing, the fire burned. Then I spoke with my tongue:
David's heart burned within him as he was musing or meditating. Once his meditation burned like fire within him, then he spoke.
While looking at Moses' Tabernacle, in the Holy Place stands the 7 candlesticks and the table of showbread. The seven candlesticks represent the 7 Spirits of God from Isaiah 11:2, The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.
The Word is represented by the showbread. The candlestick and showbread together represents "revelation of the Word". This is the difference between the "logos" or written Word and the "rhema" or the Word breathed - revelation of the Word.
Back again in Romans 4, God spoke to Abraham telling him the number his seed will be in the earth. Once his name was changed from Abram to Abraham every time Abraham heard someone call his name, he was hearing "Father of Many Nations" not Abraham. When Sarah would call to him or one of his servants, "Father of Many Nations" he would see his seed as many as the stars in the sky or sands in the desert. He heard over and over again what he was hearing until it became real to him.
1 Corinthians 1:27-29 tells us 27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; 28 and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, 29 that no flesh should glory in His presence.
It is God that brings to nothing the things that are by the things which are not. This means that as we hear/speak the Word over and over which causes faith to come and we meditate on the Word day and night until it burns within you, and the Holy Spirit has breathed on it, then you can call those things that be not as though they were and call to nought the things that are. The logos must become rhema. The promise you are standing on, the Word you are hearing and meditating on, the Word that is burning on the inside of you must have the breath of the Holy Spirit breathed on it (it must become revelation to you) to bring it to life or to make it flesh, to manifest it to bring you to the end of your faith.
