What great words of wisdom from a great man of God.
The old adage says: Prayer changes things.
But remember to use prayer FIRST not after you call up all your friends or go on social media and tell the world what your problems are.
That’s what Charles Stanley is telling us here, go to God first, He is the only one that can really change things and do it in a way that will be the best for you and no mere man can do that.
The Lord encourages us to pray: “Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knoweth not.” Jeremiah 33:3 (This verse is often called God’s telephone number, a great one to have, Amen???) Try it, it works.
In fact, the Lord just dropped this in my spirit. I encourage you to program the scripture on prayer Jeremiah 33:3 on your phone ahead of any other phone number you have. That way the next time you need to pray to the Lord and take up that phone to call someone, up will come Jeremiah 33:3. It would also be a great idea to program it where it would come up when you text. Hallelujah!!!
The Spirit of the Lord has been talking to my spirit for some time to teach on DREAMS AND VISIONS and has given me material to share with you. Dreams and visons guide and direct us when they are from the Lord. They encourage us. They give us victory in every area of our life and so much more.
I am going to start this teaching next week. Please join Nita and me and give our website address out to many others so they can be blessed and encouraged to enter into this supernatural act of God in their lives. It will change your life for the good and glory of God.
Of course it will be based on the Word of God as all of our teaching is and will also be using many examples in the Bible and some dreams from us and others that we have received over the period of years.
I will also be posing questions and answers about dreams and visions each week in what is taught that may answer many questions that you have.
PLEASE SHARE THIS WEBSITE WITH OTHERS, WE ALL NEED THE WORD OF GOD AND THERE ARE ALSO SO MANY THAT ARE HURTING AND THIS WORD OF GOD WILL MINISTER TO THEM. OUR DESIRE IS TO SHARE THE WORD OF GOD WITH EVERYONE AROUND THE WORLD AND ALLOW THAT WORD TO RAISE YOUR LEVEL OF FAITH AND HELP YOU HAVE A POWERFUL CHRISTIAN LIFE AS YOU VISIT THIS MINISTRY EACH WEEK.

The areas of the armour of God that I have covered so far are these: 1. Loins girt with truth 2. The breastplate of righteousness 3. Feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace 4. The shield of faith 5. The helmet of salvation.
Today I am excited to minister on: THE SWORD OF THE SPIRIT. Ephesians 6:17
The other 5 pieces of the armour of God that I have ministered on to this point have all been defensive weapons that we all have as blood bought Christians.
The sword of the Spirit is an offensive weapon, but when you realize the extraordinary power of the sword of the Spirit it will set you free.
When Nita and I had this website designed by a professional website designer we told him that we wanted a very large double edged sword on top of the teaching tab when you first come to it. That sword isn’t up there by accident it was planned. The Holy Spirit put that image of a huge double edged sword in our spirit.
The website designer out did himself and amazed us with the awesome size and power of that double edged sword on our teaching tab.
Recently I did an in depth teaching on the Word of God that of course the sword of the Spirit represents in the church that Nita and I attend.
I told that group of people, there are 2 things you need to get a revelation of concerning the Sword of the Spirit (the Word of God):
First of all you need to get a revelation from the Holy Spirit of just how powerful the Word of God is and then the awesome ability the Word of God has. When you get a revelation from the Precious Holy Spirit of these 2 things you will be a terror to satan and his kingdom. I want to be a terror for God against satan and his kingdom, don’t you?
The reason I say that you need a revelation from the Holy Spirit is that He is the ultimate teacher, not me nor anyone else, no matter how long they have ministered, their degree or anything else.
We can all teach the Word of God but only the Holy Spirit is able to give you what the world calls, that “aha moment.” Which means that only the Holy Spirit can give you illumination of the Word of God, no man on earth can do that.
I can prove that to you.
Do you remember when Jesus asked His disciples this question: “But whom say ye that I am?” “And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the Living God.” “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona; for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 16: 15-17
You see only the Lord can reveal the Word of God to you in a way that makes it real to you. It gives you revelation knowledge and that is exactly what Peter received as he stated that Jesus was the Christ, the Son of the Living God.
That’s why as you read the Word of God or listen to the ministry of the Word of God you need to pray that the Holy Spirit will give you illumination. You will then understand the Word in a special supernatural way that will light up the Word of God for you. You will say things like this. I have read that passage or heard that passage ministered many time and did not really understand it but do I ever understand it now. Hallelujah!!!
So back to the church Nita and I attend and the 2 things I told a group that you need to get a revelation of, how powerful the Word of God (Sword of the Spirit is) and then the awesome ability the Word of God has.
You need to understand that the Book of Ephesians was written by the Apostle Paul approximately in the year of A.D. 62.
The Apostle Paul was using the most awesome deadly weapon in their time to compare the powerful Word of God to a huge double edged sword. The people of that day could understand that comparison and I am sure they were awestruck. They knew that the double edged sword was the first choice of military battle in that day.
The double edged sword could kill an enemy with just one swing and it had the ability to kill an enemy either way the warrior swung his sword. That is very impressive right?
If the Apostle Paul was writing Ephesians in the day you and I live in I’m sure he would have said the Word of God (Sword of the Spirit) is more powerful than any and all nuclear bombs on the face of the earth. That is quite a statement but absolutely true.
The nuclear bomb in this day and age would be the most deadly weapon on the face of the earth right now. Nations fear that a nuclear bomb would ever be used.
Let me give you God’s description of how powerful the Word of God is. He compares it to that double edged sword back in the day as people of that time could relate to it.
“For the Word of God (sword of the Spirit) is quick (alive) and powerful (more powerful than a nuclear bomb), and sharper than any two-edged sword (sharper than a surgeon’s knife) piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and the marrow (so sharp and precise) and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12
When you and I take the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God and use it against our enemy satan it will defeat him every time. You must learn to quote the Word of God pertaining to the situation you are in to the devil.
Spiritually speaking the Word of God is more powerful than any nuclear bomb, it is a spiritual force from God that gets the devil running from us as we quote it.
Jesus is our example right?
Jesus was tempted in the wilderness in His humanity and what did He do to defeat satan. What else He quoted the Word of God to the devil and what does it say in Matthew 4:11. It says the devil leaveth Him. Please read the whole account of the temptation of Jesus in the wilderness found in Matthew 4:1-11.
I have trained young Christians to use the Word of God against the devil and they have got back with me and said it absolutely works. Of course it did and does, quoting the Word of God is like a giant spiritual sledge hammer, hitting satan right in his head. Boy that hurts, Amen??? He will flee.
That my friends is what the Sword of the Spirit is and the power it has.
Now let’s look at what the Sword of the Spirit will do in addition to what I have already ministered to you.
“So shall my Word be that goeth out of my (your) 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.” Isaiah 55:11 KJV
Now allow me to give you the New Living Translation Version:
“It’s the same with my Word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. (I love that) It will accomplish all I want it to, (that’s assuring right?) and it will prosper everywhere I send it.” Isaiah 55:11 NLT
Do you want success in your Christian walk, then live for the Lord and use His Word and speak it out of your mouth and it will bear fruit and accomplish all that the Lord wants His Word to do and it is guaranteed to prosper everywhere you send it.
Wow, what a promise.
So now I have presented 2 great revelations to you that the (Sword of the Spirit) the Word of God has. First of all of its ultimate power and secondly as you speak it out of your mouth, it never returns void, it always produces fruit.
I like that an iron clad guarantee from the God of all flesh, there is no better guarantee than that amen?
Then in Ephesians 6:18 the Apostle Paul talks about praying in the Holy Ghost, ie praying in tongues through the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. “Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” Ephesians 6:18
Jesus said in Acts 1:8 “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you; and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
When you receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence in speaking in other tongues Jesus said it will give you spiritual power. You need that power in conjunction with all the other armour of God.
Praying and speaking in the Holy Ghost is one of the pieces of the armour of God that helps make you victorious as you use all of the other armour with it.
The main reason for speaking in other tongues is found in Romans 8:27. “And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.”
How can you not win using all of the armour of God including speaking in other tongues because when you speak in tongues the Holy Spirit makes intercession (prayer for you, as we pray in the Holy Spirit) according to the will of God. So every time you pray in the Holy Spirit Romans 8:27 says you are praying according to God’s will.
I pray that you have been encouraged and built up with all of the armour of God through this teaching. That you are taking the land for the Lord and able to help other Christians get a revelation of it also. Please feel free to send us your testimonies of what God has done in your life as a result of this teaching. Nita and I enjoy reading all of them. Thank you
