Psalm 40:8 —— I delight to do Your will, O my God, and Your law is within my heart.”
When John the Baptist carried out the instructions that, he got from heaven, God backed him up and he saw the manifestation. He saw the Spirit descend in the form of a dove, and he heard the divine voice break the silence of fifteen centuries in the acknowledgement: Mathew 3:17 – “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased”
The word of God is our warrant from heaven, which will surely bring forth the manifestation of God through the Holy Spirit when we act.
Most of us are baptised in Jesus, hence we are called to preach the Word of God to the ends of the earth. God saved us because He knows that through us there is going to be a great revival.
John the Baptist was the labourer who said ‘yes’ to God. Are we willing to say “YES” to God? Because the harvest is plenty but the labourers are few. Many of us get frustrated when we go out and preach but do not see any results We also get bitter and annoyed.
John the Baptist spoke to the people and baptised them. The people did not know who Jesus was, but John turned the whole crowd towards Jesus. In the same way, we who are called in God’s ministry and given the Spirit of God, even though we do not see Jesus but when we speak His Word touches the heart’s of people and they are lead to Jesus.
The ministers and preachers who are called know Jesus through the Word. When they minister to the people under the anointing of the Word, the hearts of the people are turned towards Jesus and not towards the minister. Our job is not to draw people to us but to draw people to Jesus.
The Lord gives us His promises written in His Word. When we hold on to that Word we will see manifestation in our lives. John the Baptist believed and did what was told to Him and saw the manifestation. We have to believe and act on that Word and we too will see the manifestation.
KNOWING THE BIBLE IS ONE THING, KNOWING THE AUTHOR IS ANOTHER.
