journey to see God: Jesus’ word power

God's purposeful power word

The way Jesus dealt with healing and deliverance is the only way the disciples followed. Jesus promised this, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” Then He also promised that the Father will send the Holy Spirit in His name. “He will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” (John 15:23, 26)

The key to disciples’ success in carrying out the supernatural mission that Jesus had started on earth, to preach the good news of the kingdom of God, to heal the sick, cast out demons and set the oppressed free, reconciling the Father in heaven with those who believe, bringing the supernatural rebirth by the Holy Spirit to mortal lives, thereby translating believers from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of marvelous light of the Son of God, transforming ordinary human being into sons of God…is the word of God, quickened by the Holy Spirit.

Our faith is based on the word of God. The word of God brings the presence of God. Here are some of the significant words (from the Gospel according to Luke: chapter 1-7) revealing the importance of words that Jesus spoke:

  1. His first statement to His earthly parents about His real heavenly Son-ship and priority in life: “Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” 2:49
  2. His first supernatural decree against the spiritual enemy’s earthly (natural) challenge: “It is written, Man shall not live bread alone, but by every word of God.” 4:4
  3. His first pronouncement to the synagogue (Jewish religious leaders and congregation): “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” 4:21
  4. His first authoritative command to demon: “Be quiet, and come out of him!” 4:35
  5. His first declaration of purpose to the crowd: “I must preach the kingdom of God to the other cities also, because for this purpose I have been sent.” 4:43
  6. His first command to the future apostle (Peter): “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” 5:4
  7. His first confirmation of His power and willingness to heal: “I am willing; be cleansed.” 5:13
  8. His first display of His authority as God’s Son to forgive sin: “Man, your sins are forgiven you.” 5:20
  9. His first revelation of His position above the Law, to those who challenged Him with the Law: “The Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath.” 6:5
  10. His first praise was given to a man of faith in Him (His word): “I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!” 7:9 ( a centurion who had publicly declared his faith by asking Jesus to just say the word, and his servant would be healed!)

Summary: Jesus does not speak idle or empty word. Every word God speaks has purpose, authority and power. Every word is truth. Every word has substance. The minute He spoke it the word became life and spirit to those who received them. (John 6:63)
