The Speaking Church

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

This is a recap of the exhortation I gave at the end of the meeting on January 16, 2011. It was not recorded, so I’ll summarize it here.

AnnaMarie used the analogy of going through customs at an airport and having to declare certain items that you have in your possession.  I could see a line of Christians passing by Satan and declaring to him what we have in God – salvation, eternal life, everlasting love, hope, a future, and on and on and on. And Satan can only say “Go ahead, what you have I cannot confiscate or even touch!”

Also, when she spoke of God watching over His Word, I envisioned Him anxiously listening for someone, a son or daughter, to speak His Word on the earth. He turns His ear to it and declares “That’s My Word that I hear!” Then, without hesitation, He draws from His infinite resources to accomplish that Word. For it for His sake that He moves on our behalf – showing Himself to be the only true God.
