Speak The Word - Vol. 2 Categories 6 - 12
"Life Every Voice"
Our Heavenly Father has set forth a prescribed method within His Word by which the blessings of God are to be realized for the believer. This method is revealed to us in Romans 1:16-17 - "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, "The just shall live by faith."
As the just, those who are born-again, we are to take hold of the Word of God by faith and speak forth the Word as our personal possession, releasing our faith through our vocal profession of His Word. We need to speak out in authority and confidence, with the realization and knowing that this is our God given inheritance and covenant birthright.. We must realize that our words are containers that release the faith in our hearts; faith in God and faith in His Word. Mark Chapter 4 reveals that the Word of God is seed that is to be planted within our heart, which is designed and designated to bring forth a tremendous harvest for the believer.
must understand that productive faith needs to be in operation in two
places; in our heart and in our mouth. The Bible has much
to say regarding this. Take a look at 2 Corinthians
4:13 - "And since we have the same spirit of faith,
according to what is written, "I believed and therefore I spoke,"
we also believe and therefore speak." Notice, belief in the heart
being released through the mouth - words.
Look also at Romans 10:9-11 - "that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." Notice again, belief in the heart being released through the mouth - words. I also want to point out that in the Greek, the words "saved and salvation" have the meaning of deliverance, physical and emotional healing and complete wholeness with the implication that they are for us right here and now in the present and not just in a spiritual sense for eternity. What kind of deliverance do you need today? Healing? Freedom from financial bondage? Marital issues? Children? The laws of faith function the same in every one of these areas.
Regarding the importance of the words of our mouth, note the warning in Proverbs 18:21 - "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit." Notice, it didn't say we might eat the fruit or produce of what we say - it said we will. One profound fact that we must take to heart as believers is that the Word of God IS absolute Truth - period. That which the Word of God declares is Truth and will come to pass.
Jesus also brought forth some very strong revelation regarding the words we speak in Matthew 12:37 - "For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned." We can clearly see that our words are extremely powerful and must be used properly if we're going to walk in the fullness of His intended blessing..
When God created the world, He used words (Genesis chapter one), and this creation process is spoken of in Hebrews 11:3 - "By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the Word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible." The Greek word for "word" in this verse is Rhema, which means the spoken word. What kind of world are you framing with the words of your mouth?
As born-again children of God (Romans 8:16-17), we are now in His family (Ephesians 3:15) with all of the rights and privileges, and we are told in Ephesians 5:1 to be imitators of God as dearly loved children. We need to rise up and begin to function in God's prescribed method that has been designated for the church to take hold of our intented blessings and begin to function in real Bible faith.
His own children, we have a mandate for this very purpose. 1
Peter 2:9-10 - "But you are a chosen generation, a
royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may
proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His
marvelous light; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people
of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy."
One of the ways we proclaim His praises is by declaring His
Word, that which He has made available to us. AND His Word is always productive
and never returns void - Isaiah 55:11.
I love this verse in Psalm 107:2 - "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy."If you are born-again, having professed Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are the redeemed, and it's time for the redeemed of the Lord to rise up against the lies of the enemy and say so! We need to begin to say what we believe. Say who we are in Christ. Say what belongs to us, and say what we can do in and through Him. It's time to take back what the enemy has stolen. It's time for the redeemed of the Lord to take hold of faith, take hold of the Word, our covenant rights and Say So!
Below are seven categories of God's Word that pertain to our covenant rights as believers in Christ: Prosperity, Children, Wisdom & Guidance, Marriage, Purity, Strength and Salvation. You will see scriptures with a "Say So" underneath, which is a profession of your faith that embodies the above Scripture or Scriptures. This "Say So" or vocalization of your faith is written in the first person tense, so that you can authoritively and boldly declare what you are believing in your heart. Speak them out when ever doubt arises. Answer that doubt or fear with the Word of God and your profession of faith. This can not be done too often.
John 5:4 - "For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And
this is the victory that has overcome the world our faith."
Faith in God is victory all of the time! Be blessed.

Malachi 3:10-11 - "Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try (test) Me now in this," says the Lord of hosts, "If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. "And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field," says the Lord of hosts.
Say So: I honor the Lord with the tithe, therefore the windows of heaven are opened unto me. The devourer has no right to steal from me, for he is rebuked. Everything I put my hand to will prosper, for I have the blessing of the tithe upon my life.
Let them shout for joy and be glad,

Say So: Because Jesus is my Lord, the blessing of the 100 fold is upon my life now. I cast off worry, doubt and dread, and place my faith in His Word, His promise of the 100 fold blessing. The favor of God goes before me, opening doors that no one can shut!

1 Corinthians 6:18-20 - Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.

For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.

Say So: Lust shall not rule and reign in my life. Jesus has set me free from its corruption and I will give it no place in my life. I take hold of the precious promises of the Word and allow God's divine nature to be brought forth in me in abundance. I am an overcomer, I am a winner in Jesus Christ.
1 John 2:15-17 - Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
Say So: I will not give in to the base things of this world - the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life. These things will not have a hold on me.

So: I will make no provision for the flesh to fulfill its
lustful desires, but will instead put on the Lord Jesus Christ. I take
up the armor of light in Him and cast off the works of darkness in every
form. His provision is far better than anything the world has to offer.
