Mark 11:11 And Jesus
entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had
looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was
come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.
Mark 11:12 And on the morrow, when they were come from
Bethany, he was hungry:
Mark 11:13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he
came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he
came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs
was not yet.
Mark 11:14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat
fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.
Mark 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say
unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the
sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that
those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have
whatsoever he saith
In this scripture Jesus is telling us we can have what we say.
When the storms come in your life and the devil says,"
look here you will never get over thisĒ just ignore him and
say I believe the word of God and He says I can speak to the
mountain and it shall be removed. That kind of faith will move
If you start speaking that your situation is getting worse,
you are in trouble because it will get worse. That is not a
Mark 7:15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering
into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him,
those are they that defile the man.
God never did anything without saying it first and we hardly
do either. We always say it before we do it. Exampleí I am
going to go shopping, I am going to work.
When we got saved it was our spiritís that got saved not our
souls. This is why we have to renew our minds to line up with
Godís word. Our souls have to come into subjection to our
spirit. We are responsible for our souls to get lined up with
Godís word. The Holy Spirit will change us on the inside if
we allow Him. We have to want to receive the change.
James 3:3 Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they
may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
James 3:4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so
great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned
about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor
James 3:5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth
great things. Behold how great a matter a little fire
James 3:6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is
the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body,
and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on
fire of hell.
James 3:7 for every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of
serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been
tamed of mankind:
James 3:8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly
evil, full of deadly poison.
You hear people talking and they will say things like; I
believe that I am catching the flu and I know that it really
is going to make me real sick, because It does that every time
I get the flu. Their faith is in getting sick and that is what
When someone tells you that you look sick, you come back and
say; I beg your pardon, The word says I am healed according to
1 Pet 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on
the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto
righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
A lot of times we have gotten off faith and cast out Godís
words, and started believing what the devil said. You release
the ability of Satan when you start saying what he said.
Fear activates the devil. Faith brings God on the scene.
Before you ever make a confession that comes to your head, ask
yourself. Who said that? What is its source?
If it does not agree with the word, you know who said that.
The devil said it. Donít you quote it, if you do, thatís
The devil does not have any power over the believer. The only
ability satan can exercise over you is the ability to deceive
you. If he can get you to believe his lies, heís got you
playing right into his hand. If you go quoting what he said,
all your praying wonít do you any good.
The people today are binding up their finances and they are
binding their spiritual growth by speaking out that the devil
is hindering them. We are giving the devil to much glory.

words thou shalt be condemned

In this scripture Jesus is speaking and when He speaks, He
means what He says and says what He means.
Our words can justify us or condemn us.
Some Christians swallow the enemyís biggest lie, but wonít believe Godís simplest truth.
Sometimes we have confessed I donít know what to do.
That wonít work. I donít believe thatís going to work
out. Then we pray about it believing in unbelief and wonder
why God did not answer. God will not answer anything if
unbelief is involved.
Some people actually have faith in unbelief.
Jesus maketh intercession for us, which means He confesses to
the Father what we say as long as it agrees with the word. In
other words if we confess his word before men, He will confess
what you say before the Father. You will get his attention and
He will get your prayer answered. If you donít confess His
word He will deny you before the Father. It will not be
transferred to the Father.
When you start praying and say Father it is not working out
that is a statement of unbelief and you have released faith in
unbelief. Jesus is not going to the Father and say Father
heís prayed but it is not working out.
Godís word is wisdom and that is what Jesus Used, the
Fatherís wisdom in all that He said and did.
Words do work and they will work for you the same way they did
for Jesus or they work against you.
Prov 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and
they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Active faith brings God on the scene and fear brings satan on
The Holy Spirit really
wants God's children to get the understanding on how
powerful words are. Negative words spoken have power, so chose
to speak life which is God's Word. If you are walking around
defeated it probably is because of the words you have been
speaking. If you are speaking negative words or evil words,
that is where your faith is. Your faith is in fear, There is
no fear in God's Word.
Prov 6:2 Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou art taken with the words of thy

that your mouth can get you in trouble. Fear filled words will

Mat 17:20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Are you spending time in
prayer, believing what you prayed, but then the next day you
start speaking negatively. Look what you have done. You cannot
mix faith and doubt. God's angels only hearken to His Word.
The angels have to stop working, until you get lined up with
So many people are truly
missing the blessings God has for them, because of the Words
Do you speak negative
Words to your children or do you build them up. You can have
what you say. If you are calling your child stupid, you can
bring that into existence.
Maybe when you were
growing up your family kept telling you that you were not
going to amount to anything, and that is what happened.
Because of those words being set in motion, that is what you
had become. Praise God that through Jesus' eyes you are
special, but those words spoken really hurt and you received
it in your heart, and out of the abundance of the heart the
mouth speaks. It created a picture in your mind, that
you were nothing, so you started seeing yourself that
You see by the
illustration I wrote in the above statement what negative
words can do.
God's Word has a
creative power and it is produced by the heart, formed by the
tongue, and released out of your mouth in word form. Remember
In the beginning God said, " Let there be light" and
there was light, and we still have light. The tongue is the
pen of a ready writer. ( Psalms 45:1) That is a powerful word,
your tongue is the pen of a ready writer. That means all of us
have the pen to write our futures, but it is not in our hand
it is in our mouth. That should really open your eyes to how
powerful the mouth is.
Gen 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
The words you speak are
seed, and it will produce after it's on kind. You will reap a
harvest. whatever is in your heart will come out of your
mouth. Your heart ( spirit ) is the soil.
Spoken words program your
spirit (heart) either to succeed or be defeated. You can have
someone speak the Word to you, but the Word goes into your
spirit (heart) by hearing yourself say it.
Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Negative words may have
been spoken to you, but do not receive those kind of words.
Learn what God says about you, by studying the Word of God and
only say what the Word says. If anything negative comes out of
your mouth cast them down and then say what the Word says
about it. Even if you do not see the manifestation with your
natural eyes, do not go by what you see, only go by what the
Word says, and it will come to past. God only moves on His
Isa 55:11 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.
When you pray only pray
God's Word needed in your circumstance. It does not have to be
long and drawn out. The Power is in His Word, but the
effectiveness is in your faith.
If you will focus on the
things written in this article and starting acting on it, your
life will change. ( Faith is : acting on the promises of God)
Prov 4:20-27 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee. Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.
Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.
1:26 KJV) If any man among you seem to be religious, and
bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this
man's religion is vain.
