Out of the Belly
I have the answer for you today, if you will hear me. What I am about to reveal to you will change your life and the way you walk with God forever. If you do it. This message will help you locate, with pinpoint accuracy, the specific place where all the things of God come from, so you can go there any time you want, and take full advantage of the profiting that comes from there. Most people want it to come some other way, from some other place, but it doesn’t and it won’t. If we want the things of God we are going to have to get them God’s way.
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63
Jesus is giving us great information here, not only about what truly profits us in this life but also about where quickening life comes from.
First, I trust that you know what quickening means (it is the spirit that quickens) – to make alive. Too often I assume people know more than they do, so indulge me for a moment while I attempt to keep everyone on the same page.
Quickening means to make alive – to make alive something that was not. If your spirit-man is dead, quickening would mean to make it alive, or you could say, born anew. If your body is sick, diseased, or in decline, quickening would mean healing or renewed life in that body part. If your finances or bank account is dead or lacking, quickening would mean a new influx of prosperity to you. So in any area of life where you need help, quickening will give you life more abundantly. See John 10:10
Secondly, this quickening will come exactly the way Jesus said it would, by his words spoken to your spirit. “The words I speak… are life” – spirit and life. So, coming this far, we can simply ask the question: if these words are life quickening spirit-words, where does he speak them and where do we hear them? The answer is simple, in our spirit.
God speaks words and our spirit hears them.
God speaks words and your spirit-man hears them – not your mind and not your body (flesh). He is not speaking to your mind. He is not speaking to your body. Of course these words will eventually affect your mind and body, but we must first understand where this transaction is taking place – in your spirit.
It’s a spiritual transaction that takes place in your spirit.
Speaking in tongues, an enormous benefit. I thank my God, I speak with tongues more than ye all. 1 Corinthians 14:18
Speaking in tongues, or praying in tongues, on a daily basis, is an enormous privilege and benefit. Not only does it build you up and strengthen you, but it also helps you locate where your spirit-man is – that place where all the things of heaven come from and to. It’s where God speaks. Yet most people don’t even know they have a spirit, let alone where it is or how to locate it.
Note: If you have not yet received the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues, I encourage you to do so. We have much teaching along this line. Go here to download one of our most popular series, “The Power of Speaking in Tongues” (link).
Speaking in tongues – a lot – helps you pinpoint exactly where you hear from heaven. What do I mean by a lot? More than you do right now. Nevertheless, I always recommend people spend at least one hour a day on this exercise.
In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scriptures hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.) John 7:37-39
Out of your belly
Jesus called this place where the living water flows out your belly. Your belly is not your head. Your belly is in your stomach area and we know he certainly isn’t talking about the fleshly part. He is talking about the core of your being. As you pray in the Spirit and let those living waters flow out, you will be able, more and more, to precisely locate your innermost being – the real you, your spirit-man.
Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again: but whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life. John 4:13-14
Jesus likens your spirit to a well that is in you. From this inner well springs up something – life. Life for what, you may ask? Life for anything and everything you need. If you have a sick body, what you need is more life quickening your body. If you have lack in your finances, you need more life quickening your bank accounts. If you lack knowledge and understanding about a situation, you need more life quickening your mind. Whatever you need, the answer is more life in that area. “Life more abundantly” than the problem.
What you need is there. You just need to know where it is and how to access it.
Where is it? In your spirit – in your belly. How do you draw it out? By speaking.
Thank God for the ability to speak in other tongues. Speaking in tongues is like taking a bucket and lowering it down into the well of your spirit. Speaking draws it up and out. As you continue speaking in tongues you draw out everything you need to succeed.
I have found – time and time again – that, while I am speaking in other tongues, revelation comes up. Or a word of knowledge. Or another gift of the Spirit will take form and manifest. In any case, the answer comes up in that bucket with the living water.
I’ll often ask people, “if, every day, you were drawing water out of a well with a bucket and rope, wouldn’t you know if something else came up in that bucket?” It’s just like that. Instead of just more water, your answer came out, too– many times in the form of an interpretation of tongues, or simply just a “knowing” that you have what you were praying for. But, my main point here is that it came out of the same place.
Praying in tongues a lot helps us to not only locate where this well is, but also where these answers come from. And we will soon find out that all the blessings of God come out of this same place.
Tongues come out of the belly.
When I get messages from God to preach on Sunday morning, they come out of my belly. Power comes out of the belly. Healing comes out of the belly. Provision comes out of the belly. Guidance, direction, counsel, help… everything you need, want, and desire comes out of the same place – your belly! Why? Because that’s where the kingdom is. Behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17:21
My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Proverbs 4:20-23
In the midst of thine heart? Guess what that means? You got it. Out of your spirit-man. Out of the midst of your innermost being – your belly. Out of it shall flow the issues of life.
The words “issues of life” can be translated “forces of life.” Out of your spirit flow the forces of life! There’s your answer.
Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding draws it out. Proverbs 20:5
Need counsel? It’s there. Where? – In your heart, or spirit. A man who understands this draws it out.
The answer comes to you out of your spirit – not your mind or your body. Not your circumstances or situations, either. Your spirit. Most people don’t understand this and spend their whole lives looking in the wrong place for their answer. If you are looking outside your spirit, you are looking in the wrong place.
God is not a mind
Remember: God is not a mind. He won’t lead you from your mind, or speak to you there. God is a Spirit. He speaks to your spirit. See: John 4:24
A few years ago God spoke this to me: “I am not dependent on the natural, neither should you be. Stop looking in that direction for your answer. It’s not where it comes from.”
Most people are missing God simply because they are looking for answers everywhere except where He is speaking.
The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord, searching all the inward parts of the belly. Proverbs 20:27
Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts. Psalms 42:7
(Deep speaks to deep, i.e. spirit speaks to spirit.)
I truly hope this helps you. It is impossible to hear from or be led by God, when we don’t even know where His leading and help comes from. Simply understanding that God is a Spirit and He speaks to your spirit, and not your mind, body, or circumstances, will go a long way in helping you develop into the person you are called to be.
Our Faith: the Holy Ghost and Speaking Wordsby A. J. Hemstrought
What Faith are You?
Many times people ask me this question, “what faith are you?” What most people are looking for is an answer like “I’m a baptist, I’m a pentecostal, I’m Catholic, or I’m Evangelical, etc.” But, in order to answer their question effectively, we first must understand and describe 1Corinthians 2:4.
And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 1Corinthians 2:4
Here Paul begins by talking about his speech and preaching. The word speech could be interpreted as speaking and the word preaching could be interpreted as doctrine. Both speaking and doctrine should be used when trying to communicate “what faith you are.”
He goes on to say, my speech and doctrine are in demonstration of the Spirit. And…there we have it! Paul’s first definition of his faith. “In demonstration of the Spirit.” The word demonstration could be interpreted “openly showing.” Paul’s faith was a demonstration or open showing of Whom? The Spirit. The Holy Ghost. Paul’s speech (speaking) and preaching (doctrine) was in demonstration (open showing) of the Holy Ghost.
What faith are you? Well, if it’s scriptural, it has to be something similar to Paul’s and should therefore be something that defines your walk with the Holy Ghost. Just like his did.
Paul preached about the Holy Ghost and His power. Why would he do that?
1 Corinthians 2:5 That YOUR FAITH should not stand in the wisdom of men, or the doctrines of men, or what men may think, but in the power of whom? God. God the Holy Ghost.
Scriptural faith doesn’t stand in the doctrines or traditions of men, but in the power of the Holy Ghost. So the answer to the question, what faith are you? Holy Ghost faith. I believe in the Holy Ghost. He is God in the earth today.
Your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the active power—I like to say it that way “active power” because it is God (Holy Ghost) doing things.
This power (Holy Ghost power) is not just having big muscles or because I’m somehow strong and powerful, but it means that I’m actually involved in the doing of powerful things. Active power. My faith, my belief, my religion is in God the Holy Ghost, or the active power of the Holy Ghost—the active power of Him doing things!
My faith is in the active power of God the Holy Ghost doing things. That’s what my faith is. This is my faith.
We have a faith like no other. When we say thing’s like, “we worship the Holy Ghost,” name anybody else doing that. When we say, “the Holy Ghost is God in the Earth today,” I’ve heard others say similar things about the Holy Ghost being God, but they don’t carry it far enough. He’s God in the earth today. He’s the only part of the Godhead in the earth. Our religion revolves around the Holy Ghost being God in the earth today and His active power to do things.
I’m going to repeat many of these principles and say them in a lot of different ways. What is your religion? Your religion is in the active power of God doing things. Doing things what? Where? For you, here and now.
1 Corinthians 2:5 that YOUR FAITH (your religion, your belief system) should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. God doing things. The active power of God the Holy Ghost doing things for you in the earth. Your faith is like no other.
How can you have faith in someone or something you haven’t clearly defined? Much of what we do here at the Society (MHGS.org) clearly defines who God is in the earth today and how to walk with Him.
Jesus sent the Holy Ghost. Few would argue against this. But, Jesus isn’t here any more. So if we are going to have active faith in an active God, who is your faith going to be in? It has to be in the Holy Ghost! Again, our faith, our religion, our belief system is in the active power of God the Holy Ghost doing things for us in the earth.
How can you have faith in someone not clearly defined? You can’t! Many faiths have not clearly defined this. They think the Holy Ghost is a power of God, some kind of a whispery wind, or an after thought of the gospel. He certainly is not the Head of their religion! The Holy Ghost is God and “our faith” has to be in the power of the Holy Ghost doing things in the earth. What’s your faith?—The power of the Holy Ghost.—The active power of God doing things.— Holy Ghost doing things. Our faith is in Holy Ghost doing things. Our faith is in Holy Ghost actively doing things where? In the earth. That’s where He is. Jesus sent Him into the earth. Our faith is in God the Holy Ghost actively doing things for us in the earth. When I say our faith is like no other. That’s what I’m talking about. It’s clearly defined.
Let’s look at some other scriptures. How about Hebrews chapter 11?
Is that a good chapter?—The faith chapter. We’re talking about our faith. Our religion, the way we believe, our belief system should be in the active power of God the Holy Ghost doing things. That’s a big mouthful. Good thing we don’t have to call it that! What’s your religion? “The Faith of the Active Power of God the Holy Ghost doing things for Me in the Earth dot com.”
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him.
Him who? God. God who? God the Holy Ghost.
Hebrews 11:6 but without faith it is impossible to please him (Holy Ghost): for he that comes to God (Holy
Ghost) must believe…
So we are talking about a belief system, a kind of belief system that without it (faith) is
impossible to please Him. Your faith, your belief system, your religion should please God, right? Yes. That’s what we are defining and doing.
He that comes to God (Holy Ghost) must believe that He (Holy Ghost) is. You have to believe that He came into the earth and that HE IS in the earth right now and that HE IS the only God in the earth today. He is! That’s our faith. Our faith is believing that God the Holy Ghost is. Is where? Is in the earth. He is here. Our faith believes the Holy Ghost IS. And…
There are a lot of “ands” in the bible. There are a lot of “buts” in the bible too, but today we are going to talk about the “ands.”
For he that comes to Holy Ghost must believe that He is AND that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
So, we are believing that God the Holy Ghost IS in the earth AND that He rewards us. That is our faith. That is our religion. That’s our mode of operation. That’s what we believe.
That’s our belief system. The Holy Ghost is God in the earth today and He rewards us because we diligently seek Him. That’s about as scriptural as you can get.
How do we diligently seek God? By speaking in agreement with His word and by worshiping Him. These two things I preach on a lot here at the Society. We speak in agreement with His words and worship Him. When we speak in agreement with His words and worship Him, He rewards us. Where do we do this? In the earth. That’s where you are. That’s where He is.
1 Timothy 4:8 godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that NOW is, AND of that which is to come.
Now AND. That’s another “And.”
So, we have to believe that God is. Is where? Is in the earth. AND that he rewards us when we diligently seek Him. How? By speaking the word and by worshiping Him.
Are you getting this? This is our religion.
It is so simple. Stop trying to make it so complex. Jesus left. He sent the Holy Ghost into the earth. He, the HolyGhost, is God. He is in the earth. We worship God and say I worship You Holy Ghost. Then… He (Holy Ghost in the Earth) rewards me as I diligently seek Him—by confessing in line with His written word and worshiping Him.
It’s not that difficult, is it?
This is your religion. This is our faith. This faith pleases God. It doesn’t irritate Him. It doesn’t grate on His nerves. It pleases Him. It doesn’t anger Him. He takes pleasure in it.
Psalms 35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
The Holy Ghost takes pleasure in prospering you because you’re serving Him by speaking His words and by worshiping Him.
Let’s look at a few more scriptures. Go to the book of Job. I know we don’t go there often. I think a lot of people stay away from the book of Job because it could be pronounced job, and job sounds like work. They wouldn’t want anything to do with that, work?
Job 1:9 Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? Vs 10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and his house, and about all that he hath on every side? Thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
The devil was trying to make an accusation to God against Job. The accusation was that Job was only serving God because God rewarded Job with good things for serving Him. The accusation failed simply because the devil didn’t know that this is how God does things—God rewards those who diligently seek Him.
Does Job fear God for nothing? No. God made Job the greatest man in the east, because he did serve Him. God even called him, “my man Job.”
When we seek God. When we worship Him and He takes great pleasure in prospering us. He rewards us.
Part of our faith, our belief system, is believing that God in the earth today is a rewarder. He is actively doing things to reward us: prosper us, heal us, and generally make things work out to our benefit.
Doth Job fear God for nought? No! Is Job worshiping and serving God for nothing? No! Neither are you.
Job 36:11 If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.
We are serving the Holy Ghost and He is a rewarder. This pleases Him. In fact, it’s impossible to please God without serving Him for the reward that He gives to you. It’s all part of the same package.This is our faith.
We worship and serve God the Holy Ghost and we serve Him for the rewards He gives us. Where? In the earth. When? Now, in this life and in the world which is to come.
People would say, “ah, you’re just being selfish.” Ah, I’m selfishly applying scriptures and… pleasing God! Your selfishness pleases God. Can you say that? Sounds a little weird to your ear, but keep going.
1 Timothy 6:17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.
Charge them that are rich in this world—always a good business model by the way. That they be not highminded, nor trust… What is another word for trust? Faith.
You are supposed to trust—have faith—in the Living God. Who is the Living God? The Holy Ghost. Our faith is supposed to be in the Living Holy Ghost. Who gives us RICHLY all things to enjoy. That’s pretty good.
1Timothy 6:18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate, vs19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come,
Laying up in store… What? FOR THEMSELVES!
How selfish of them, doing what the bible says.
We are supposed to trust in the Living God. The Holy Ghost is the Living God. Our
religion, our faith, our belief system is in the Living God. We trust in Him. Our faith is in Him. That He is what? Giving us richly all things to enjoy. Richly all things. It doesn’t get much better than that.
Now, if you are going to believe “for richly all things”, it’s going to take greater faith in the Living God than not believing richly for anything. One faith is going to please God and one isn’t. Are you getting any of this? I hope so.
My faith is in the Living God—God the Holy Ghost in the earth—richly providing for me, actively doing things on my behalf. This is our faith. What is? The Holy Ghost actively doing things for me. Richly providing things for me in the earth. I’m serving Him. I worship Him. I speak His words and therefore guess what? He richly provides things for me. All things. Now and in the world which is to come. This pleases Him.
“And that He’s a rewarder.” This should be building your faith.
Say this out loud, “The Holy Ghost actively does things for me in the earth today!” That’s your faith. That’s living faith in the Living God. Not a dead faith, or faith that only believes for things when we die and go to heaven.
This is our faith. It’s not a bag of religious garbage. My speech and preaching was not with “a bag of religious garbage” but in the Holy Ghost and His active power to do things for me in the earth. New hipster translation (NHT).
2Chronicles16:9 For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. kjv
For the eyes of the Lord…Who? The Holy Ghost. Run to and from throughout the whole earth. Where? Earth. Again this is part of our faith. This is what we believe. We serve Him. This pleases Him.
The Holy Ghost has eyes that run and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong, actively doing things, active power, on behalf those whose hearts are perfect towards Him. That’s you when you worship Him and speak His words.
This is your faith. This is in your bible. This is what you believe. I believe in the Holy Ghost actively in the earth doing things for me. The more you believe that, the more you confess that,
the more you act on that, the more you get in line with that, the more you are going to be pleasing to God and the more He’s going to be able to do things for you.
The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth. Where is the Holy Ghost? He’s in the earth. What do we believe? That the Holy Ghost is in the earth. What else do we believe? That He’s in the earth actively doing for me because I worship Him and speak His words.
This is a good message. I’m starting to get happy about it.
I have a faith that’s different than a lot of other people’s because I’m actively worshiping the Holy Ghost and speaking His words KNOWING that He’s the one in the earth doing things for me because I’m walking in agreement with Him by speaking. Are you seeing this?
What’s your faith? That’s your faith.
Speaking in agreement with His words. There’s another word for that. Righteousness. Right standing with God is right standing with Whom? Holy Ghost.
The just shall live by faith. The righteous shall live by faith. If we are walking with God we
must therefore be in right standing with God.
Amos 3:3 How can two walk together except they be agreed.
The word “agreed” here means “saying the same thing.” So our walking with God, our
righteousness of God, or our right standing with God is when we say the same thing as God— also known as the righteousness of faith.
I’m not going to be in the righteousness of faith unless I’m speaking something.
Romans 10:6 says the righteousness of faith SPEAKS.
Romans 10:8 says but what sayeth it? The Word!
So I’m walking with the Holy Ghost who is God in the earth. I am the righteousness which
is of faith when I’m speaking. And what sayeth it? The Word. Why? Because it’s His word and when we say His word we are walking in agreement with Him. What’s the result of that? His ability to do things for you is exponentially increased and it makes Him happy, pleasing Him.
The Holy Ghost is God in the earth today and you walk with Him by speaking in agreement with His words. This is your faith.
What overcomes the world? What overcomes the world victoriously? Our faith. It’s not my faith overcomes your world? No, your faith overcomes your world. You need to own this fact that faith is your victory. Then you need to know ‘the faith feedback loop’—you need to know it, prove it and work it—knowing that it will work every time.
It was prophesied to me years ago that there would come a day when the things of God will be explained so simply that you would be able to write it on a chalk-board and people would be able to do what’s on the chalk-board and have miraculous results in their life. Well, this is that day!
This is what I call the ‘Faith Feedback Loop.’
This is the hurdle you must get over. You must know the faith feedback loop. You’ve got to know it. You’ve got to understand it—that this will literally put you over in life. Faith is the victory that overcomes the world and this is how simple it is to have victory over any situation and every situation. That’s pretty simple. Right? Say the Word of God, hear the Word of God and have enough faith come to put you over. This is what you need to know, you need to prove, and you need to work. The Faith Feedback Loop.
The first thing you do is you need to say something God said about you. And what happens when you say it? You hear it. What happens when you hear the Word of God? Faith comes. So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 What did Jesus say about the mountain? He said that Whosoever would say to the mountain and believe that what he says will come to pass, he will have whatsoever he says. Mark 11:23 Well, this all begins as a small loop.
How many of you know what feedback is? Have you ever heard feedback from a microphone? If you get the microphone to close to the speaker, you may say just one little thing into it. You say something into the microphone and it comes out the speaker now the microphone is picking up what came out of the speaker and it goes right back in at the speed of sound and gets louder and louder, faster and faster. Louder coming out the speaker. Louder going into the microphone. This happens very quickly and what we end up hearing is a high pitched squeal! It’s feedback. That’s what faith feedback is.
When you speak the Word of God you’re getting feedback. It resonates down into your spirit and faith comes. Which causes you to what? Say it with more faith! And you say it with more faith. And it keeps coming, again and again.
By Jesus stripes I was healed. By Jesus stripes I was healed. By Jesus stripes I was healed!
This builds up in your inner man until faith is the victory that overcomes the problem, that overcomes the world. So, as this is getting bigger and it’s getting stronger and it’s going faster and it’s getting louder it will take you over the problem because faith is the victory that goes over your problem.
You must get over this hurdle of knowing this. Some of you have been stuck not knowing how to do this. You’ve got to have it. You’ve got to see this and have this work in your life. So that you can do it again, and again, and again. You need to take a scripture, say it, hear it, and have faith come. Say it, hear it, and have faith come. Say it, hear it, and have faith come until you overcome a specific problem. And know that you proved it. Know that you overcame your problem with that method. This method, the faith feedback loop. That’s the hurdle I am talking about.
It’s to easy to say that the hurdle is the problem. No, the hurdle is not the problem. This is the hurdle. You’ve got to get over this. Knowing how to operate the Faith Feedback Loop. To know that it works and know that it works every time and in every situation. Once you own this—Faith Feedback Loop—you’ve cleared the hurdle and the problems are no longer significant.
If I had symptoms of sickness come on me I would sit there and make myself say, by Jesus stripes I was healed, sickness can not stay in my body. And then I’d say it again. By Jesus stripes I was healed, sickness can not stay in my body. And I’d say it again. And I’d say it again. I’ll work out on that thing. 5, 10, 20, 40, 60 minutes, until all of a sudden I know. Something happened! I said it and my faith was released in those words where I knew that that sickness left me. Whether the symptoms left immediately or not I knew that my faith overcame that problem. I’ve done this again, and again, and again—financially, spiritually, physically.
This is the hurdle you must get over. You must own this. Especially as Society Members it’s what we are putting into you. I’m writing it very simply on chalk -boards. You’ve got to take this and do it and it will work for you every time. Once you’ve gotten over the first hurdle—this hurdle—and it’s taken you over something specific in life, you’ll never be the same. You’ll know that you can work the Faith Feedback Loop again, and again, and again… And it gets easier.
This should excite you because now you know that you can get over any problem in life with God’s Word in your mouth. You can have it. But, you’re going to have to have some feedback going on. You’re going to get into that feedback loop. You initiate it. I may help you out. This message today will put faith in you to get that spindle rolling. To get it going in the right direction. But, you are going to have to be the one to feed it with your words and get that feedback started.
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17
So then faith comes. Faith just comes. If we just knew how to have faith to come. Then we could get enough faith to overcome our problem. Any problem in the world you can overcome by faith. We all understand that, right? We all understand that if we have a certain amount of faith, that faith would cause us to overcome our problems. I don’t care what problem it is. Faith is the Victory. Wether it’s sickness, lack, or any number of other issues. You could have an incurable illness and if you had enough faith to act on it, it would go away and cease to be a problem.
Well, how do we get that kind of faith? Faith comes by hearing. It comes. It just comes. That part of the Feedback just comes. So faith comes. But, how does it come? By hearing and hearing by the Word of God. You’ve got to hear it. You have to know these things. You are required to know these things here (MHGS).
But the righteousness which is of faith speaks. Romans 10:6
But the righteousness which is of faith speaks. The righteousness of faith does something. It speaks. Well, I’ve got news for you, you’re in the loop already. If you speak the Word of God you’re going to hear the Word of God and you’ve already begun that feedback loop. Faith speaks.
Your faith speaks.
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; Romans 10:8
But what saith it? The Word!
My faith speaks. What saith it? The Word. What does faith speak? Faith speaks the Word. When you speak the Word you’re going to hear the Word and that Faith Feedback Loop is going to begin. This is very simple it’s like you could write it on a chalkboard. I wish God would make this so simple that we could write it on a chalkboard.
So the righteousness of faith speaks. What does it speak? The Word. Where is it? It’s near you. It’s in your mouth. Number one, it’s in your mouth then it’s in your heart. Where does faith go. Where does it grow? It grows in your heart. It’s a force that will grow up in your heart and you don’t know how it happens. You don’t know how that faith grew up in you to where you spoke something. Just like God, remember that’s how He does things. You spoke something and that’s going to come to pass. You don’t care if somebody comes along and slaps you. It’s going to come to pass. That’s faith.
How do you get to that point from saying. You keep saying. You keep saying.
Romans ten seventeen says, Faith comes by hearing. Verse six says, the righteousness of faith speaks. Verse eight says, What does it say? It says the Word. Now go to verse ten.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:10
Is with the mind that man believes? No. For with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Salvation means deliverance, healing, soundness, prosperity, or simply whatever you need. Is this to difficult? What part of you is going to believe? Your heart or your spirit man does. Your mind is going to have a hard time with it. Because it always wants to understand and figure things out. But faith is of the heart or spirit man. It’s with your heart that you are going to believe.
When you say it your heart believes it. And at some point your heart is going to believe it enough. And you are going to say it and that will be the end of it. Because it says right here in Romans 10:10 that with the mouth confession is made unto. Confession is made unto. Unto what? That all inclusive word, Salvation. You can be saved. You can be healed. You can be delivered. You can be prospered. You can have any verse of scripture. You can have any Word of God this way. This is normal christianity. This is the way you are supposed to do it. It does not diminish the gifts of the Spirit but this is normal christianity and this is what you are learning how to do.
So you are going to–with your mouth–keep confessing until the salvation shows up. As you’ve go that faith feedback loop going, faith is coming, faith is coming, faith is coming. And then your mouth confesses unto your healing. Then there with come one time when you say, By Jesus stripes I was healed. And it with go shwooph out of you and fix something. It will go shwooph out of you and the devils will leave. It will go shwooph out of you and the angels go and bring you a big bag of money. Or bring you a raise. Or bring you a promotion. Or do whatever you are confessing. Or move the mountain.
Can you do this? This is simple enough, I can do it. I’ve got faith feedback going on. And I want you to see that this isn’t some equation that I came up with to be tricky or fancy. This is how we walk with God.
This is How We Walk With God
This is how God does things. When we’re doing this we are walking with Him. Remember, this is God’s idea. And you are going to walk with Him in this. You’re going to put yourself right in there too. God and me walking together. We’re saying. We’re hearing. Faith’s coming. We’re doing this. It’s God’s idea and you and God are workers together.
We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. 2 Corinthians 6:1
We are workers together with Him. This is God’s plan. This is God’s method. When we get in line with it we’re working with Him. We have the same spirit of faith according as it is written I believe therefore have I spoken.
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; 2 Corinthians 4:13
We are working together with Him. We have the same spirit of faith. Who is The Spirit of Faith? The Holy Spirit. This is God’s idea. Are you seeing this now? It is God’s idea that when He–in the beginning–what did He do? He believed something and He spoke it. So, everything that we have, see, and know came out of this–believing and speaking. So, if we are going to work with God we are going to be doing the same thing. We’re going to be speaking words and believing words. And speaking words and believing words. There is no other way to walk with God.
I understand we all have this concept of what it means to walk with God–it’s usually religious and most likely wrong. We’ve got to clean that old concept out of there because that’s not walking with God that’s just a concept of walking with God. This is walking with God. If you do this–if you get inside that feedback loop–that’s you walking with God. You’re working with Him. You’re walking with Him. He is the Word. You are speaking the Word. We have the same spirit of faith according as it is written, I believed therefore have I spoken. We also believe and therefore speak. Who did this originally? God did. Who’s image did He create you in? His image. This is so simple. We make it complex.
I learned this years ago and it just gets stronger every day. That when I say the Word of God, that’s me walking with God. When I don’t say the Word of God, I’m not walking with God. I may feel fine. I may feel alright with God. I may know my sins are forgiven. I may know I’m going to die and go to heaven. But, that’s not me walking with God. Me walking with God is saying His Word.
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over… So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; Genesis 1:26-27
God made man in His image and said of him to have dominion over. How was Adam going to have “dominion over?” If you just read from the beginning up till this verse, the only thing you would know about God is that He is someone who speaks words and has them come to pass. So, by the law of first reference, the only thing we could know about Adam–created in the image of God–it that he is someone who speaks words and has them come to pass. Then we have much more revelation as we read the rest of the bible but it began there. It began with spoken words. So here’s Adam, in God’s image–Let Us make man in Our image. What image? As a person who can speak words, believe they come to pass, and they come to pass.
And remember, it said, Let them have dominion. How were they going to have dominion? By their spoken words. That’s how God created man to have dominion and that’s how they had dominion. They’d say, “lion shut up and sit down.” Right? “Tree grow. No fruit come off of you hereafter forever. Mountain be removed and cast into the sea.” This is how they did it. They were in God’s image.
Who’s image are you created in? In God’s image. How are you going to walk with God? By speaking words. Adam had to walk with God by speaking words. If you don’t believe me go over to Genesis chapter two.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2:7
Man became a living soul. The phrase living soul is a little bit blind to us. I did some hebrew language study on this. Actually, I have a whole book on it–proper speech. These words–a living soul–literally means in hebrew, a speaking spirit. And man became a speaking spirit. God created man in His own image. He created him a speaking spirit.
You are the only creature on this earth that has the ability to speak words and believe they come to pass. Parrots can’t. Monkey’s can’t. We can. How are we created in God’s image. This! We were created a speaking spirit. That’s how we are like God. Got it?
So, if I’m going to walk with God, He’s a Speaking Spirit, I’m a speaking spirit, we are going to walk together. If we are going to be with each other. Then I need to be a speaking spirit and I need to be speaking the same thing He’s speaking. That’s how you walk with God. You don’t walk with God by thinking, you don’t walk with God by feeling, you walk with God by speaking. Because, He’s a Speaking Spirit and He created you to be a speaking spirit. If you still don’t believe me go to Genesis chapter three.
And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden… Genesis 3:8
They heard the VOICE of the Lord God walking in the garden. People say, “I want to walk with God, I want Him to hold my hand and we’ll skip together.” That’s not how you walk with God. You walk with Him by saying. It’s with His voice that you walk. What is a voice? It’s saying something. They heard the VOICE of the Lord God WALKING.
What did they hear walking? The voice of the Lord God. If they were going to walk with God they were going to walk with His voice. They heard His voice walking. Does He hear your voice walking? Your voice needs to be walking.
When we say walk with somebody we mean live life together with them. So this is where Adam fellowshipped with God. It was in spoken words. They heard the voice of the Lord God walking.
Now what happen when you hear the Word of God? Faith comes. They knew this back here. This is not some foreign thing. This was something that was going on from the beginning. They were speaking spirits. They heard the voice of God walking speaking. And to walk with Him they had to be speaking spirits.
Can two walk together, except they be agreed? Amos 3:3
All of these things that I’ve written about here today are foundational things. I don’t know why we don’t hear about them in many churches. But, this is what you need to grow up in. Grow up! Here’s the question. Can two walk together except they be in agreement? The answer is, No. What are they agreed in? In what they say. So, walking together–according to the bible and we are basing this on the bible. I’m not basing my walking together on some conceptual thing that I’ve just thought of. Walking together in the bible means you need to be in agreement. So, when you want to walk with God you are going to have to be a speaking spirit and say the same thing. That’s what agreement means–saying the same thing.
You can’t walk with God and not say the same thing. Let me say it this way. You can only walk with God by saying the same thing. You only walk with God when you are saying His Word out your mouth. Remember, He is the Word. When you are saying His Word out your mouth, you’re walking with Him. When you’re not saying His Word out your mouth, you’re not walking with Him. You only walk with God when you are saying His Word out your mouth.
I will bring this into this other realm just for one second. When you are speaking in tongues, Who’s words are you speaking. You’re speaking His words. When I speak in tongues I’m speaking God’s words, I’m walking with God.
It’s because I’m speaking. The speaking is the key. You are a speaking spirit. So I’m speaking God’s Word. So if someone says, “Yes, I’m walking with God.” and they are doing something other than speaking–either speaking in tongues or speaking scriptures, then they’re not. You are walking with God when you speak.
This is something you must have. You must own this. Do you know what I mean when I say own it? Meaning, I know how to do this, I know this, this is mine, and by owning it I can show other people this is how you do it. Because, I own it. It’s mine. And many times with owning something you’ve got to purchase it. Which means it my take you some study. It might take you some looking into. It might take you some reading this message over and over. But you must own this. Especially as Society members and people that belong here. This is part of what we require. You’ve got to have this.
If I tell you that I want to walk with God today, how am I going to do that? I’m going to speak His Word. Take a couple of scriptures that pertain to what you really want and then you are going to say those words. And as you are saying those Words you will be walking with God. You’ll be working with God. You’ll be in the middle of that feedback loop, which produces itself in your life. Every Word of God has the ability to reproduce itself in your life if you walk with God in it.
