When we came into this world, we had no wisdom, knowledge, or understanding of anything. The world taught us everything we knew. We became conformed to this world, believing everything we were taught by the world.
When we became a born again Christian, we became a new creature in Christ Jesus. Now it is important that we renew our minds to believe the Gospel, and to believe everything that the Word of God tells us concerning who we are in Christ Jesus.
In Romans 12:1,2 it says, "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service...And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
Where do we start in renewing our minds that we are no longer conformed to this world. A good place to start is in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
Until Christians believe that Jesus cannot lie, they will have many situations in their lives that will hinder them from receiving from God what God has promised every Christian. Until we believe in our heart that everything Jesus said is truth, the Devil will blind our minds and cause us to follow the teachings of men rather than what the Holy Spirit wants to teach us.
The most important thing a Christian can do is learn to believe everything Jesus told us. We must first judge ourselves, before we judge others. If we think we are doing the will of God, we need to see what Jesus said we should be doing.
We should judge ourselves by certain statements that Jesus made to everyone who claims to be a believer. In Mark16:17,18, Jesus said, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues...They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." If these signs are not operating in our lives, there is something wrong with what we believe. We need to find out what is wrong, that these signs are not following us wherever we go.
It is between us and Jesus, if we will believe the things that Jesus told us in His Word? Whatsoever we do in this world, the most important thing any person can do is believe everything Jesus said about them personally. If Jesus said we can do it, then we should be doing whatsoever Jesus said we can do.
It seems that Christians go about believing a lot of things that people have told them, but do not believe the things that Jesus told them. It is time that we change what we believe from what others have told us to what Jesus told us in His Word. When we believe everything that Jesus told us concerning ourselves, we will have victory in our lives everyday. It is all based upon what we believe in our heart.
Learning to Believe Jesus
There are many things that Jesus told us in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. One of the most important things that Jesus told us is in the gospel of John, Chapter three.
Jesus was speaking to Nicodemus "who was one of the teachers of the Jews at that time." The position that Nicodemus held among the Jews was next to the High Priest in Jerusalem. In the Jewish nation, the High Priest at Jerusalem held the highest position among the Jews. The next position was that of the Sanhedrin in Jerusalem, which was made up of approximately seventy members. Nicodemus was a member of the Sanhedrin. Therefore, Jesus called Nicodemus "a master of Israel" (John 3:10).
Jesus went about teaching the gospel of the Kingdom of God. There are two spiritual kingdoms here on earth. There is the kingdom of God (which operates by the "power of the Holy Spirit)" and the kingdom of the Devil (which operates by the knowledge of good and evil) (Gen. 2:17). The kingdom of God is greater than the kingdom of the Devil. Everyone born of the flesh into this world is born into the kingdom of the devil. In Ephesians 2:1-3 it tells us, "And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins...Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience...Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others."
Then in Ephesians 2:11,12, it says, "Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands...That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world." The Children of Israel had a covenant with God, whereby, if they would obey all the commandments of the Law of Moses, God would deliver and protect them from the works of the Devil. But that did not get the Children of Israel into the kingdom of God. For the kingdom of God could not come until Jesus was first crucified, died, and arose again from the dead. Jesus is the King over the Kingdom of God. Without a king there cannot be a kingdom.
Nicodemus understood natural things, but he did not understand spiritual things. Spiritual things can only be understood by those to whom the Holy Spirit reveals them. This is explained in 1 Corinthians 2:12-14, where is says, "Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God...Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual...But the natural (psuchikos) man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."
The Greek word "psuchikos" means, "a living soul in a natural body of flesh and bones." That also means, a descendant of the first Adam (Gen. 2:7). Truly, Born again Christians are not in Adam, "they are not in the flesh." Christians are "in the spirit of Christ." In Romans 8:9 it says, "But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his." In 2 Corinthians 5:17 it says, "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." There is a major difference between those who are not born again and those who are truly born again. Therefore, in 1 Corinthians 15:21,22, it says, "For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead...For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive."
Nicodemus "at that time" could not understand what Jesus was saying to him in John, Chapter three, verses three and five. Neither can those today who are not truly born again understand the Kingdom of God.
In John 3:3, Jesus said to Nicodemus, "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see (eido) the kingdom of God." The Greek word "eido" in this verse means, "know or understand." This applies to everyone born into this world as a child in the flesh. Everyone is born into this world "of the flesh of Adam." Everyone is born without God in this world. The only person born into this world "in the flesh with God in them" was Jesus. Jesus was not born "of the flesh," but rather born "in the flesh" of man. Jesus was born of Mary (a woman) and the Holy Spirit.
Therefore, Jesus was answering Nicodemus' question concerning the miracles that He was doing. Jesus was also revealing to Christians, "that to enter into the kingdom of God and have the ability to do miracles, which includes casting out devils, and healing the sick," we must be "born again."
When Nicodemus could not understand what Jesus meant by "born again," Jesus said to Nicodemus "Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water (hudor) and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God" (John 3:5).
The Greek word "hudor" means "liquid water." At the same time, Jesus was not talking about "liquid water." Many times in the Gospel of John, the Epistles of John and the book of Revelation, the Apostle John used the Greek word "hudor" symbolically, not literally. Anyone who believes the Apostle John was always speaking of liquid water is deceived by the teachings of men. Many times the Apostle John used the Greek word "hudor" symbolically for "the Word of God" (See John 3:5, 4:10,14, 7:38; 1 John 5:6,8; Rev. 21:6, 22:1,17). Therefore, in John 3:5, it is not speaking about liquid water, It is speaking of "the Word of God."
Jesus said in John 3:6,7, "That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit...Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again." What Jesus said to Nicodemus applies to everyone living today also. To enter into the kingdom of God, a person must first be born again.
Notice something of importance in John 3:7, Jesus said, "Ye must be born again." Jesus did not say, "You must be Saved." There is a difference between "Saved" and "Born Again." If there was no difference between Saved and Born Again Jesus would not have used two different words, meaning two different things, while speaking to Nicodemus and His disciples in John, Chapter Three. Jesus cannot lie, and Jesus will not deceive anyone. Jesus meant what He said in John 3:5-7, and He also meant what He said in John 3:14-21.
The words "born again" mean; "born from above or born of God." The word saved means, "deliver/delivered, protect/protected, preserve/preserved, heal/healing, made whole."
The Apostle Peter, speaking by the unction of the Holy Spirit said in 1 Peter 3:20, that Noah and his family were "saved." They were "delivered and protected," while everyone else perished in the flood. Is what Peter said the truth? Certainly, Peter was speaking by the anointing of the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit cannot lie.
All throughout the Old Testament people were saved, which means "delivered, protected, preserved, healed, and made whole," but none of these were "born again." John the Baptist was a great prophet, but John the Baptist was not born again. Jesus said in Matthew 11:11, "Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he." Was Jesus telling us the truth? Yes. Jesus cannot lie.
How does a person become born again? In John 1:10-13 it says, "He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not...He came unto his own, and his own received him not...But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name..Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." Therefore, to become born again, it says in John 1:12, "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God..."
To become "born again" a person must receive "JESUS" as "LORD," not just as "Savior." The word "LORD" means "supreme in authority." If Jesus is supreme in authority in our lives, then "we can no longer be supreme in authority in our lives." If we want to remain "supreme in authority in our lives, and do our own will of the flesh," Jesus cannot help us.
When Jesus is LORD in our lives, we are no longer in control "of what we do, where we go, and how we live" (John 3:8). In Mark 8:34-36, it says, "And when he had called the people unto him with his disciples also, he said unto them, Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me...For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel's, the same shall save it...For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"
When a person receives Jesus as LORD, they are truly born again. When they are truly born again, God the Father translates them from the powers of darkness into the body of Christ (Col. 1:13). They become a new creature in Christ Jesus (2 Cor. 5:17).
When a person is truly born again, they are babes in Christ, and need to be saved, which is "delivered, protected, preserved, healed, and made whole," by a work of God in their lives. Therefore, in Acts 2:47, it says, "...the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved." Christians are added to the church, "which is the body of Christ" by the new birth.
After Christians are truly born again into the body of Christ, they must be saved, which is, "delivered, protected, preserved, healed, and made whole." This is a process which must continue in our lives until we leave this earthly life to be with Jesus in eternity. Everyday, Satan tries to get us to sin against God. We must not give any place to the Devil in our lives. But, when we fail to submit ourselves unto God and resist the Devil, we must repent, confess our sins and "be saved." Christians must continually be "saved" daily. Salvation is "deliverance and protection" from all the works of the Devil.
In the Old Testament, the Children of Israel were saved, which is "delivered and protected" from the works of the Devil by "obeying the Law of Moses."
In the New Covenant, Christians are saved, which is "delivered and protected" from the works of the Devil by obeying our LORD, "Jesus Christ" in everything He told us to do. In Hebrews 5:8,9, it says, "Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered...And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him." "Eternal salvation" comes by obeying our LORD Jesus Christ. This obedience starts with obeying the two commandments of Love that Jesus gave us in the Gospels.
Jesus warned us, saying in Matthew 24:11-13, "And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many...And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold...But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." We must continue obeying Jesus until the end to be saved.
The teachings of men will deceive many, not knowing the difference between "born again" and "saved." When a person is truly born again they become a new creature in Christ Jesus. Jesus is "the living Word of God." Therefore, Jesus is "the Seed" of the new birth. In 1 Peter 1:23, it says, "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever." In John 1:13, it says, "Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." In John 3:6, Jesus said, "That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit." It takes "the Seed," which is "the Word of God" and "the Holy Spirit," which is the Spirit of God to cause a new birth in a person who is not born again.
To be saved, a person must believe "on the Name of Jesus," and "the gospel of salvation." The Epistle of Romans was written to Born again Christians in Rome and every born again Christian in the whole world today. Romans 10:8-11, is written to "born again Christians," saying, "But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach...That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved...For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation...For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed." The book of Romans was not written to the world. The Book of Romans was written to Christians who were already born again.
"The gospel of salvation," is the good news of what Jesus did for the whole world on the Cross of Calvary (1 John 2:2). What Jesus did for mankind on the Cross of Calvary made it possible for people to become born again. What Jesus did on the Cross of Calvary was for the whole world. Yet, the whole world will not be saved. There will be more people in hell, than there will be in heaven. Why is it that way? Because only those who are truly born again will be in heaven. A person must be born again to enter into heaven when they leave their physical "earthly body" for the last time.
A person who is not born again can be saved. That is, they can be "delivered, protected, preserved, healed, and made whole." Even those who are not born again can be healed. Many people were healed in the Old Testament times and can still be healed today. But that will not make them a new creature in Christ Jesus. "They must be born again" (John 3:7).
Until a person "is truly born again," they are in this world without God and without a covenant with God (Eph. 2:12). If they die without being born again, they may not enter into heaven with the LORD. Simply because, they did not receive Jesus Christ as "LORD." Therefore they are not truly born again. They may have been "saved," which is, "delivered, protected, preserved, healed, and made whole," but they are still in Adam, and not in Christ Jesus.
God gave us "His Word" in the Scriptures. If we do not believe the Word of God, we cannot become born again. If we do not believe the Word of God we cannot inherit eternal life in heaven. We must believe the Word of God, if we desire to spend eternity with Jesus in heaven. There is no other way to enter into heaven when we leave this earth. There is only one Way, one Truth, and one eternal Life. The Way, the Truth, and Life is in Christ Jesus (John 14:6).
The Power of God
There are three persons in the Godhead, "the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit" (1 John 5:7). God the Father is over all of creation in heaven and on earth. God the Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into this world to become our LORD and Savior. Jesus did everything the Father sent Him to do, and then Jesus went back up into heaven to be with the Father where He came from (Mark 16:19; Luke 24:51; Acts 1:9).
Then the Father and Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to give those that truly believe and are truly born again, the power to do the same works that Jesus did while He was here on earth in the flesh (Acts 1:1,2,8).
It says in Acts 1:4,5, "And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me...For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence." Jesus was not speaking only to His eleven Apostles at that time. Jesus was speaking to all those who were assembled together at that time. Jesus was also speaking to you and I and everyone who will receive Him as LORD and Savior.
In Acts 1:8, Jesus said, "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 Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." This applies to everyone who is truly born again. Every born again Christian should receive this power to be witnesses unto Jesus throughout the whole world. We know this included more than just Jesus' Apostles, for in Acts 1:13,14, it says, "And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James...These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren." Not only were these listed here in Acts 1:13,14 there, but included with these were also others who were born again. In Acts 1:15, tells us that there were about one hundred and twenty all together.
Then, ten days after Jesus ascended to the Father (which was Pentecost Day), the Holy Spirit came upon all of them in the upper room (the whole one hundred and twenty). Pentecost day was fifty days after the Passover. According to Jewish law everyone had to come to Jerusalem for the Passover and Pentecost, fifty days later. Pentecost was the day of "the firstfruits of the new harvest," in the spring of the year. The Children of Israel were required to bring in an offering at that time.
On Pentecost day, God made the first offering, following the offering of His Son for the sins, iniquities, sicknesses and diseases of all mankind. God offered all who were truly born again "the Holy Spirit," as their Teacher, Leader, Helper, Guide, and Comforter. Therefore, Jesus commanded all that believe on Him to receive the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:4,5).
In Acts 2:2-4, it says, "And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting...And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them...And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance." Everyone that was in the upper room received the Holy Spirit that day. It was not just for a few Apostles. It was for everyone who was truly born again.
Why are there so many going to Churches today who do not speak in tongues? Where is "the power" to do the works that Jesus said "Christians should receive?" Without the Baptism and filling of the Holy Spirit, Christians do not have any power over the works of the enemy.
Before Jesus died and arose again from the dead, he gave certain disciples "power" over the works of the Devil (Matt. 10:1, Luke 10:1). Yet, after Jesus arose again from the dead, Jesus said that to have this "power" we must receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit. How many Christians today believe what Jesus said, and have received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit?
The only way to do the same works that Jesus did and said that Christians should do is to receive the "Power" of the Holy Spirit to do them.
The Holy Spirit is "the third person" of the Godhead. He is the "Power" of God that carries out all the works of God in heaven and on earth. It was the Holy Spirit that moved upon the waters and the dry land appeared in Genesis 1:2. Everything God does includes the work of the Holy Spirit. God is three persons, and every person of the Godhead is important, and responsible for their part in everything that happens.
If Christians do not obey God "the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit," they will be defeated by the enemy in this world. Any Christian who thinks they do not need the Baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues is deceived by the enemy. Satan, our enemy "is the god of this world" and he blinds the minds of everyone who does not believe what Jesus told us and what the Holy Spirit reveals to us in the Epistles and Revelation.
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is so important to God, that God has given us four different ways to receive the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues.
(1) Luke 11:13 says, "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?"
(2) In John 14:15,16, Jesus said, "If ye love me, keep my commandments...And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever."
(3) In Acts 5:32, it says, "And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him."
(4) In Acts 8:14-17, it says, "Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John...Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost...(For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus)...Then laid they their hands on them, and they received the Holy Ghost."
In Acts 8:14-17, these Christians were born again and baptized in water, but they still had not received the baptism in the Holy Spirit. The baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues is necessary for every born again Christian. Therefore, God has given us four ways to receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, leaving us without excuse for not receiving the "Power" of the Holy Spirit to do the same works that Jesus did.
God will not force anyone to do His will. Everyone must receive everything from God by faith, with a willing heart. We must receive everything from God "by grace through faith." We cannot receive anything from God by our works of righteousness. Only by Grace through Faith.
We cannot receive anything from God by "Grace alone." God promises us everything by "His Grace, through our Faith." Without faith we cannot receive anything from God. God only rewards those who come to Him "in faith." Hebrews 11:6 says, "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."
First we must believe God, then we must receive from God what we believe "by Faith." Christians are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit (Rom. 8:9). Christians must operate in the spiritual realm, not in the natural realm "as those who lived did before Jesus died and arose again from the dead."
In the Body of Christ, God requires Christians to "walk after the Spirit and not after the flesh" (Rom. 8:1-8). Christians are in the Spirit of Christ, therefore, it says, "If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit" (Gal. 5:25).
Are Christians today living in the Spirit and walking in the Spirit? If we are not living in the Spirit and walking in the Spirit we need to make some changes in what we are doing. We need to examine our lives according to what Jesus taught in the four gospels and what the Holy Spirit taught in the Epistles. The Holy Spirit is our teacher. Therefore, we need the Baptism in the Holy Spirit to enable the Holy Spirit to "teach us," and give us the "power" to do the works that Jesus said we should do.
Jesus came teaching the Kingdom of God (Mark 1:14,15). In Romans 14:17, it says, "For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost." The Kingdom of God is "God the Holy Spirit" in total control of everything we do. Jesus said in John 6:45, "It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God..." How can the Holy Spirit teach us if we do not receive Him into our lives?
Doing God's Will
The only way to do the will of God is to do it God's way. Jesus did God's will while He was here on earth in the flesh of man. In doing God's will, Jesus never did His own will of the flesh. In John 5:30, Jesus said, "I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me."
If Jesus could not do anything of His own self, how can Christians do anything of their own self? To do God's will we must have all three persons in the Godhead involved in our lives. We must have "the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit" active in our lives. Jesus did not do anything unless He first heard from God (John 5:30). If we are to do the will of God, we must also first hear from God.
How do we hear from God? We hear from God by first denying ourselves, and spending time with God in His Word and prayer. If we want to do our own will of the flesh, God cannot help us. God will never help us do our own will of the flesh.
In Matthew 16:24, it says, "Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me." Anyone who does not want to deny himself, cannot follow Jesus. Self denial is the first step in following Jesus.
When we deny ourselves and take up our cross, we can begin to follow Jesus. The first thing necessary in following Jesus is knowing and understanding that Jesus is "the Living Word of God." Jesus and "the Word of God" are one. Jesus was the Word of God before He became "Jesus."
In John 1:1,2 it says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God...The same was in the beginning with God." Then in John 1:14 it says, "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."
The Word of God became flesh when Jesus was born of a virgin woman by the name of Mary and the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:31, 34,35). Jesus is still "the Living Word of God." Jesus dwells in every born again Christian by His Word, abiding in us. The Word of God abides in us as we abide in the Word of God.
Everything God does on this earth is done by the Word of God, empowered by the Holy Spirit. As Christians abide in the Word of God and the Word of God abides in Christians, the power of God is in us to do the will of God. We receive the manifestation of the Word of God by the power of God abiding in us according to the Word of God.
To abide in the Word of God, and for the Word of God to abide in us, we must deny ourselves and follow Jesus (Who is the Living Word of God). The Word of God manifests in our lives when we come into total agreement with what is written in the inspired written Word of God. God inspired His Word to be written for our benefit, that we can walk after the Spirit and not after the flesh. We walk after the Sprit by walking in total agreement with the inspired written Word of God.
When we believe in our heart everything Jesus said we can do, we can do whatsoever Jesus said we can do. For, Jesus cannot lie. It takes years of studying the inspired written Word and doing what we are told to do to enable us to "walk after the Spirit." Then, we will see the manifestation of the Word of God in our lives.
