Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. And there was not anything made that was made without Him. In Him was life, and this life was the light of men…
Jesus is the Word. His Word is the glue that holds everything together, that’s why He was able to just speak the words and people were healed of their infirmities, and raised from the dead. Notice how Christ told the unyielding fig tree to die and it withered and did so.
Also remember how He calmed the violent storm on the Sea of Galilee to the utter amazement of His apostles who were afraid they might die in the raging storm. He did so to validate His power to the apostles who were with Him. Now that’s power!
That is why; once we trust Him He can work the miraculous, all we have to do is have faith that He can do it. Words are powerful, very powerful. They gave existence to our mortal being and sense of consciousness.
God even gave mankind the capability to form words for communication amongst themselves. We too have power in the words spoken by us; they can bring joy, hope, restoration, happiness, consolation and healing. However, when wrongly used words can also instill negative feelings of fear, intimidation, anxiety and hate. The human tongue has power over life and death as well.
That’s why the Word of God, tells us to be careful what we say because we will be held accountable for every idle word we speak.
The written word also has power, the power to make one knowledgeable and well informed. We, through the written word can be entertained, and infused by the knowledge of what others preceding us had to say about a certain subject. We therefore learn without having to experience what the writer did during his experiments if the subject is science for example.
Libraries across the word are full of knowledge, history and genealogy. What a dynamic gift we have in words written or spoken. It’s too bad we take this miraculous gift for granted, and more often than not abuse it.
When witnessing to someone, it is best to use the Word of God. “The Word of God is shaper than a two edged sword, piercing to the dividing asunder of the soul and the spirit and bone and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Who can refute the Word of God? Only a fool would try.
An illiterate person has few options but to believe anything said to him. That’s why many third world countries are still in the dark ages as it were. The more enlightened a culture is the better is their sanitary, health, and governmental system becomes. “Blessed are they that read.”
Satan uses words too, taking advantage of a people by twisting words around though lies and deceit. “Has God really said?” In this way, by questioning the words of God, he causes people to doubt and question the authority of our Creator.
He tempted Jesus with words, “If you really are the Son of God, cast yourself down for the scriptures say, He will not let you dash your foot against a stone.” But Jesus answered by saying, “It is written, thou shall not tempt the Lord thy God.”
By the way, I’m on a mission to help my former brother-in-law get around after undergoing an eye operation which without it will go blind within weeks. Making my way across country by train has been a real adventure already.
I use my business cards to let these people know about my movie “The Prophecies 2016.” and on top of that, my card also informs about my writing contributions to Rapture Ready and Drop Zone Delta on the reverse side.
I was first assigned a seat next to a very religious Hindu man and we talked for hours. I was able to share Christ with him after listening to his story, after which I gave him my business card. With only three days on the road I’ve had a number of encounters on the train and was also able to lead a man to Christ in the train station in front of many witnesses.
What must the observers have thought? The truth is, I don’t care; this man’s spiritual well being was at stake and I will take every opportunity that presents itself to do so.
Another elderly couple I met and talked to at length will distribute my cards to their church members. This couple witnessed me leading the man to Christ in the train station and were impressed enough to take a photo with me. I also encountered a missionary couple from Ethiopia; they told me that Muslims are having visions of Christ there.
The following day I met an atheist in the lounge car who is a really friendly guy and was open to discussing the Bible and God even though he was a former fan of Timothy Leary the LSD guru. A young man Amish whose name is Jacob listened to our conversation intently…
Soon after, I was surrounded by the entire barn raising group of about twenty, making conversation and having a good time, even laughing at times. I will never forget this wonderful encounter. Jesus said, “Only those who throw away their lives for my sake will know what it truly means to live.”
I give my business cards to everyone I encounter. In this way, I am able to spread the word about my coming movie to many across the country. I will also be visiting a number of churches as drive back from North Dakota to Naples, Florida next month.
Everyone has to know that God loves them and is not willing that any should perish, but come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
