It’s been a while since I made any post on this blog. Thanks to many that have written to ask after my well-being and also to those who may not ask, but in their hearts and mind are praying for me. Your prayer support and well wishes are well appreciated. It’s been close to two years of running this blog, www.powertalk.com.ng, and what we have celebrated on this platform is the power of the word to change our world. Isaiah 9:8 said, ‘the Lord sent a word into Jacob and it hath lighted upon Israel’. This scripture reveals the generational impact of one revelation; a word meant for a man can change generations after him!
I believe strongly that every word been penned on this blog and platform will not only impact lives here in the now but also in the future with many generations to come. Every word is written and published lives beyond its present time of publication. God told Daniel in Daniel 12:4 to shut up the words for their understanding are for future generations. Many of the greatest events that shaped our immediate past world politically were all prophesied and documented in the book of Daniel. And who knows maybe our next series on POWERTALK will focus on GREAT TRUTHS FROM THE BOOK OF DANIEL, now that's by the way.
The words published on POWERTALK may not give specific prophecies as regard world events, but still, every word of scripture is prophetic in nature and when we take heed to them the ‘day dawns and the daystar arises’ in our hearts and we begin to do well in life! These were the words of Peter in 2 Peter 1:19-21, ‘We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost’.
Just like God inspired men of old to write the scriptures he is also inspiring men today to bring us into an understanding of that which has been written. This has been the thrust and focus of POWERTALK in the past two years. I thank God for shedding light on his word and bringing illumination and revelation to our hearts, both to the writer and to the readers. And I also appreciate everyone who has made it possible for these words to be published through their FINANCIAL support and giving to the cost of running the blog. God bless you. And also to everyone that reads, but also beyond reading you also help us to share our contents with others, thank you. Your continual support financially and otherwise is appreciated. And if you will like to join in been part of supporting POWERTALK financially you can always reply to this broadcast and know how you can be part of. We are in the age and day where we are been told not to give, but those who have been on the giving lane knows it's more blessed to give than to receive. The liberal soul is always made fat for the scriptures cannot be broken!
POWERTALK for the purpose of upgrade and re-invention will still be off for a while in the next month or so but will be back with more powerful truths and light from the word of God. And I thought it will not be appropriate to go off that long again after been off for a while without communicating with you the reader and also because the present series on EXPERIENCING THE WORD needs a closure. As Paul enjoined, please pray for me as I also do for you. So quickly I will bring to a closure the present series on EXPERIENCING THE WORD.
How do we experience the word without applying the word? The spiritual application of the word is what provokes the tangible manifestation of the word! One story we followed during the course of this series was that of the Ethiopian Eunuch in Acts 8. When the lights of the word dawned on him, he immediately knew what to do! Revelation is the mother of spiritual knowledge. You can't know anything from the word except it is first revealed to you by God! The Isaiah 9:8 that we read told us the Lord sent a word into Jacob and it hath lighted upon Israel. And then in verse 9, we saw the effect of that light, of that revelation: "And all the people shall KNOW, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria". The spiritual aftermath of light is knowledge. The light came and then the people knew. Light and revelation bring us to the point that " we know". But after we know what do we do? We must apply the word. It is when we walk and work with the word that the word comes alive in our world!
From today God's word will come alive in your world. Like the Ethiopian Eunuch, when he saw the water he said "see here is water, what hinders me to be baptized"(Read Acts 8:36). When you have received the revelation of the word nothing should hinder your manifestation of that word in the world, nothing except your spiritual laziness and inability to put the word to use. And that is what we must fight against as believers.
Hebrews 4:2 is instructive here, "For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it". For lack of faith, some did not obtain a result with the word. The question is how do we know the ones walking in faith and the ones not walking in faith, for really all of us will never admit we ain't walking in faith? James 2:18 brings some clarity, "Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works". Faith is proved by the positive steps we take in line with the word. This is the last step to experiencing the world, applying the word. Read in Hebrews 11, where we have documentation of the hall of fame of men who walk in faith and you will see a common denominator, all of them moved according to the word they have received. And it was that movement that shook their world and turns the world upside down! From here you will make moves and you will create waves. Amen.
To experience the word we must apply the word, and it is this spiritual application that brings us open manifestations. This shall become your experience from this day forward. Amen.
