Dear Sisters and Brothers in Jesus the Christ,

 The truth is, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works . . .John 14:12 (NLT).  

 Upon awakening, the usual first thing is to thank the LORD GOD, then bless Him and the Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit. (Though not daily, I also thank Abba Father for His ministering spirits assigned to me. I’m fairly sure that some of my own actions or lack thereof resulted in God’s Angels having to do “extra” on my behalf.) This morning, almost immediately after giving thanks, came a whispered thought: “you’re a partner with three different ministries and a member of one church, and not one of these reached-out to see how you were doing during the Texas ERCOT’s electrical ‘rolling outage’ fiasco.” Now, other than the LORD who never leaves nor forsakes me, I usually consider myself a loner yet it surprised me to find sweetly comforting the mere act of those who reached-out but GOD knows us better than we know ourselves (Deuteronomy 31:6; Joshua 1:9b; Hebrews 13:5b Jeremiah 1:5; Matthew 6:8). Though the whispered thought was indeed a fact, I immediately recognized its intent to purvey a spirit of depression coaxed by a negative thought, leading to another to sever these partnerships.

 Perhaps needless to say, a traumatic experience whether major or minor will trigger a negative thought but by the WORD I know to cast down immediately, and  includes a run toward or turning to the One who is Omniscient and Omnipotent and Omnipresent via prayer in the Spirit. Though the conversation while praying in the Spirit (Ephesians 6:18) sans interpretation of tongues (1Co 12:10e) may not be clear verbatim, I’ve a general sense of clarity. For example, my part of this conversation involved The Church which is the Body of Christ and that various ministries ought to be more in sync; and God’s part of the conversation involved my need to come-up in regard to 4th dimensional living in a 3rd dimensional world. (Abba Father knows that I’ve two books on the subject in my personal library for several years yet haven’t read.) For Jesus the Anointed One and His Anointing did far more than preach and teach the Kingdom; He made manifest on earth that which is in Heaven via healing all who had faith to believe (Matthew 4:23 & 19:2 & 21:14; Mark 1:34; Luke 4:40). The Scripture at top relays that we are expected to do greater works yet it seems only a few, such as Dr. David Yong-Ci Cho, have.

 Apparently, either a significant number who comprise the Body of Christ lack self-awareness and/or self-confidence specific to: the promises of God (Numbers 23:19; Deuteronomy 15:6 & 28:3-13; Psalm 145:13; Hebrews 10:23; 2Co 1:20), the covenant ratified by the blood of Jesus the Christ (Matthew 26:28; Mark 14:24; Luke 22:20; Hebrews 9:11-28), and the ministry-of-authority the Lord Jesus delegated to us (Mark 16:15-18). Those reconciled unto the Family of GOD by the Blood may work the WORD by the power of the Holy Spirit because the Word of God is alive and full of power; mighty to the pulling down of strongholds (2Co 10:4). Those who have faith and believe and meditate and speak it, remain steadfast in the knowledge that nothing is impossible for GOD. (Romans 10:17; Hebrews 11:1-31Matthew 17:20c & 20:26; Genesis 18:14; Mark 9:23 & 10:27; Luke 18:27; Psalm 1:2.) These are they who adamantly enforce God’s Word, in various ways via the tongue whatever the circumstance and regardless of how or what the situation looks like in the natural realm.

  • The joy of the LORD is my strength. The LORD is the strength of my life. (Nehemiah 8:10; Psalm 27:1)
  • I can do all things through Christ Jesus’ anointing which empowers me. I’m ready for all things and equal to all things through Christ Jesus’ anointing which infuses inner strength into me. I’m self sufficient in Christ Jesus’ sufficiency.Philippians 4:13 (KJV & AMP combined and personalized)
  • I am healed by the stripes of JESUS. (personalized affirmation based on 1Pe 2:24 and Isaiah 53:5)
  • Christ Jesus has redeemed us from the curse of the law. Therefore, sickness or disease are forbidden upon this body. Disease germs and/or viruses are forbidden to touch this body by the redemptive work of Christ Jesus. Every muscle, every organ, every cell, every tissue, every blood vessel, and every capillary of this body functions in the perfection to which GOD created it to function. Malfunctions are forbidden in this body by the blood of Jesus and in His Holy Name.(personalized confession rooted in Galatians 3:13)
  • The Spirit of God is in me. The Anointing of God is in me. The healing power of God is in me.” (personal confession based on Scripture).

To leave absolutely nothing on the table, to refuse to forgo a single promise facilitates establishing God’s kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven which helps others as well as ourselves. The Sovereign Lord God Almighty works through us because He gave dominion over the earth to us and His Word never returns void (Luke 11:2; Genesis 1:26-28; Isaiah 55:11). As Eugene H. Peterson succinctly stated: “God cannot be fit into our plans, we must fit into his. We can’t use God—God is not a tool or appliance or credit card. . . . God is alive on God’s terms, alive in a way that exceeds our experience and imagination.1 As Scripture written by Paul that I speak at the end of one of my daily prayers: “Now unto You Father, Who is able to do immeasurably more than all I can ever ask or imagine, according to Your power at work in me, to You be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus, forever and ever and ever, AmenEphesians 3:20-21 (NIV personalized).
