Learn to Speak the Christian Language

November 25, 2009

A language is a system of communication: a system of communication with its own set of conventions or special words (Microsoft Encarta 2008)

Every society has a language. Every trade has a language too. Tribes have languages also. Even the deaf learn sign language to communicate. Aircraft controllers are also trained to precisely focus on the exact words pilots and other controllers speak. Languages are not restricted to humans though. Computers have a language for instance. You could have heard of Visual basic, HTML, Java, etc. which are known as computer programming languages. Christianity also has a language.

Advantages of Speaking the Christian Language

The Christian Language also known as the Faith Language has the following advantages:

• Faith language pleases God. Jesus stood still when blind Bartimaeus called on him by faith language amidst a great number of people. (Mark 10:49)

• Demons obey only the faith language. Jesus’ disciples failed to cast out a demon because they lacked faith. (Matthew 17:17-18)

• Mountains move when addressed through the faith language. Jesus commanded us to move mountains by the faith language. (Mark 11:22-23)

Christian Language Utterance Skills

1. Say Let there be

The first words that God spoke when He started creating the universe and all that exists in it are “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:3 KJV). These words are actually translated from one Hebrew word hâyâh pronounced haw-yaw’ which literary means to exist, that is, be or become, come to pass.

The bible says that, Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways. (Job 22:28 KJV). That is our heritage: to say things into existence.

2. Say I am (only positively)

God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM (Exodus 3:14 KJV). The word translated I AM is the same Hebrew word hâyâh is translated “Let there be”. This time God uses the word hâyâh to say that “this is how I exist”. Actually hâyâh is the root word for the name of God- Yehôvâh (yeh-ho-vaw’) which means the Self Existent one.

The Gospel according to Saint John records 10 I AM’s spoken by Jesus Christ. I am that bread of life. (John 6:48 KJV), I am the light of the world. (John 9:5 KJV), I am the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6 KJV), etc. The Greek word translated I AM in Jesus’ words is EIMI (i-mee’) which literary means to be, to exist, to happen, to be present.

3. Say I can

When Joshua and Caleb said I can (Numbers 13:30), God was so pleased with them but when Prophet Jeremiah said I cannot, God rebuked him (Jeremiah 1:6-7).

Say I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippians 4:13 KJV)

4. Speak in the now

Notice that God uses the present perfect tense when He speaks to Joshua concerning the conquest of Jericho.
And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour. (Joshua 6:2 KJV)

The LORD said that I have given into thine hand Jericho even before the conquest. Learn to speak in the present tense, present perfect tense, and present progressive tense.

5. Be Emphatic

The sound of a horn, and the voice of words, the hearers of which made request that not a word more might be said to them: (Hebrews 12:19 BBE)

When God spoke to the Israelites from Mount Sinai the voice of God was so Forcible, Strong and Impressive that they pleaded to Moses that they should not hear it again.

Add a compulsive tone to your voice especially when addressing Satan and his cohorts.

6. Rejoice always

In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight. (Luke 10:21 KJV)

The language of faith is spoken with joy because whatsoever things that you speak by faith you acquire immediately. Hence joy confirms that you have spoken by faith.

Believe to Receive

November 9, 2009

There is a pattern of faith in the Word of God which if you have the guts to follow will make you soar like an eagle over every area of your life. The pattern follows this order: believe first then receive. Most people want to receive before they believe. Oh no, it does not work like that.

The process of believing is likened to cultivating and sowing whilst receiving is like harvesting. Just like cultivating and sowing takes much longer than harvesting so also believing takes much longer that receiving. Actually, when you have really believed it takes only an instant to receive.

How Abraham believed for Isaac

Abraham was promised a child by God when he was 75 years old, (Genesis 12:4) but he bore the child when he was 100 years old. From 75 years to 99 years Abraham was cultivating and sowing in his belief.

You see, believing makes one righteous. Abraham believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness. (Genesis 15:6 KJVR). In other words, believing qualifies you for receiving. When you believe an account is opened for you where what you believe for is deposited.

However, just as a Bank Cheque has to mature before it can be drawn against, your believing too has to mature before you are able to receive. In order for Abraham’s faith to mature God deliberately used two allegories of his descendants that Abraham visualised 24/7. In chapter 13 of Genesis God shows him the dust of the earth and Chapter 15 he shows him the stars of heaven. Hence the picture of the promise was before Abraham day and night until his belief matured.

By meditating and hearing and hearing the word of God you are able to mature your belief in the word of God.

How Abraham received Isaac

When Abrahams belief had fully matured at the age of 99 years God visited Abraham again but this time with a different technique. (Genesis 17:1-5). This time God changes Abraham’s confession.
“Your name shall be no more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham; for a father of many nations have I made thee”. (Genesis 17:5).

Notice that Abraham’s confession changed at 99 and at 100 years his wife Sarah bore Isaac. This means that as soon as he started confessing, Sarah became pregnant. Hence, the receiving took place almost immediately.

Now let’s sum up with reference to the following scripture.

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. (Romans 10:9-10 KJVR)

It takes the heart to believe and the mouth to receive. That is, what you have cultivated and planted in your heart will soon be evidenced through what you speak. And what you speak will soon be evidenced by what receive.
