We need to learn the truth, learn what God has for us to say, for many false teachings are in the world today. For example, some people are teaching to just speak your desire and it’s granted as though you’re God yourself. If you want a car, speak the make you want and expect to get it. If you want a house, speak it. No praying, no holy living, nothing taught about the divine will of God, just speak what you want and you have it. If you want money, come up with the amount you want, speak it and get it. This is a wonderful–sounding doctrine; unfortunately, not a word of God’s truth is in it. How cleverly the devil manages to confuse people!

Man’s words and God’s words couldn’t be more different. People in false doctrine have put out the concept that you can get rich by merely telling God how much money you want. The Bible doesn’t teach this way at all, but people who don’t make the effort to understand the greatness of God and how He works are satisfied to take man’s unholy shortcuts.

In the divine will of God, the Holy Spirit directs you what to ask for. Praying without asking for God’s will is wasted prayer. Pray in the will of God always. For years I’ve had a standing order with Heaven: Lord, if I ask anything that’s not your divine will I don’t want you to grant it. If it’s the permissible will, I don’t want it; I want only your divine will.

Jesus, coming as very God manifested in the flesh, spoke the Father’s words only. I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him (John 8:28,29). Jesus as very God as well as very man took the way of complete obedience. As very man Jesus set the example for us all, showing us how to defeat the devil, how to be an overcomer. Study the devoutness, dedication and consecration to God that Jesus displayed in all His actions.

In touch with the Father and in complete accord with His will, Jesus commanded miracles to be done. To be able to command miracles and healings to take place in the blood name of Jesus, I must be prayed up and in touch with Heaven when I come to the healing line. It’s God’s will for people to have good sight, good hearing, God’s will for them to be able to walk well, to have good health; the Bible teaches it. I simply say what God says; I speak the Word of the Lord: It’s thus saith the Lord, not thus saith man.

Signs Follow Believers

Mark 16:17,18, These signs shall follow them that believe…they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. The Lord has promised that He will heal you, that a believer can lay hands on you and you will get well, but the one who lays on hands must be someone who is prayed up and living for the Lord in order to work the miracle, the healing. Then you have to accept that miracle or healing, nothing doubting.

A believer will lay hands on you and you shall get well: That’s what the Lord says, so I speak it, command it. The disciples did the same thing after Jesus ascended back to Heaven.

At the gate Beautiful, Peter said to a man who had never walked, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk (Acts 3:6). In the name of Jesus rise up and walk—it was a command that Peter spoke in accord with the Word of God. And he [Peter] took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God (Acts 3:7,8). Peter knew it was the will of God to heal that man, and the will of God backed up Peter’s words.

As long as you don’t think it’s God’s will to heal you, why pray about it, why ask God to do it? This is no time to play church, no time to play with God; He’s not in a playing notion. Much prayer and fasting must be done in preparation to pray for the sick.

God’s Promises Are Conditional

The Bible teaches holy, godly living as a condition to answered prayer. Jesus said, If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you (John 15:7). When you abide in the Lord, you ask according to the will of God. Why? Because the Holy Spirit, having control of your life, will direct you.

Every promise in the Word of God is conditional, even the promises of salvation and eternal life; you have to live holy to keep them. If you don’t live holy, your salvation, your eternal life in Heaven will be lost and you will exist in a living death in hell.

Mark 11:23, For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Speaking the Word of God in all trust, you have faith in God. Jesus as very man said what the Father gave Him, and we’re to speak the same way. When you without a doubt say the words the Lord gives you, it’s the same as the Lord speaking because the words are His, spoken through His divine faith, through His divine blood and what the Lord says will come to pass.

However, commanding things to be done without taking God’s will into consideration—on the order that some are preaching and teaching—is false doctrine. If you’re involved in such as that, get away from it in a hurry.

Deceiving and Being Deceived

False doctrine is a deadly disgrace. Teaching people to merely speak what they want and it will be done causes them to be disappointed when the thing they claim doesn’t materialize. Thinking, I’m not worthy; I can’t do what they say I can do, many backslide, not accepting what God has said. Can you command a certain amount of money to be yours and it will be yours? The devil would like you to think so, to command different things to happen, even to happen to other people. That false doctrine is destructive to the true plan of God.

Deceit and false doctrine are growing as the Antichrist gains strength on Earth. Evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived (II Timothy 3:13). Those in false doctrine deceive themselves into thinking they’re all right. Instead of praying and fasting, spending hours and hours with God, they spend their time inventing all kinds of gimmicks to gain influence over people.

Know the Spirits

First John 4:1, Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. It’s dangerous to not know the spirits. If you don’t know the spirits, you need to be spending more time with God in prayer, fasting and living in the Word so you will recognize them at once. Take to the Word everything you hear preached or taught, and that includes what I teach and preach. Compare every doctrine or teaching you hear to the Word of God. If it doesn’t match the Word, it’s no good regardless of who said it. Throw it out, not part of it, but all of it.

Contend for the Faith

Mark 4:39, And he [Jesus] arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. As the Son of man, Jesus calmed the storm. He knew it was not the will of God for His disciples to perish. Nothing was out of order as the Son of man commanded the sea to become calm. He was showing the disciples how they could calm the storms as well, but they had to have the faith of God. Having the faith of God requires living holy before Him. It’s impossible to have the faith of God without holy living. Faith is a gift from God, a gift He will not give to the disobedient.

Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints (Jude 1:3). To have the great faith once delivered to the saints of God in past ages, you must be totally consecrated and dedicated to God. God has given much faith, but to use it you must stay yielded to the Lord in order for that faith to work so you can talk like Jesus, think like Him, live like Him, be like Him, and have His mind.

Take on the Mind of Christ

The Word speaking to you tells you to take on the mind of Christ: Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:5). Don’t doubt anything in the Word. If the Word tells you that you can do something, you can do it. However, if you doubt, if your faith wavers, don’t think you will get anything from the Lord. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord (James 1:6,7). It’s easy for the Lord to deal with you when you trust His Word completely.

Be It According to Your Faith

Jesus as the Son of man working among the people would ask, Wilt thou be made whole (John 5:6)? Believing for the miracle was left up to them. Jesus told two blind men, According to your faith be it unto you (Matthew 9:29). They had faith to believe and they received their sight.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him (Hebrews 11:6). He that cometh to God must believe that He is Lord God Almighty, Lord of all with all power. If you don’t believe that, you can’t please God.

Many times Jesus would leave the disciples to pray the night through. As the divine Son of God, as very God, Jesus didn’t need to pray, but He had taken on the fashion of man to show us how prayer works. He made it easy for us to go His way when we yield to the Word in perfect trust. In the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus prayed as the Son of man.

The Holy Spirit has come to guide you into all the truths that Jesus taught; none of them are left out, none are missing. Any truth you need from Heaven not recorded in the Bible you can be fully assured that it will never conflict with what has already been written. This Book is intended to prevent us from detouring into modernism or fanaticism when we use it. The Word of God takes us right down the middle of the road.

A Highway of Holiness

A highway is here for us: And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there (Isaiah 35:8,9).

No one unholy will be allowed to enter Heaven. Just a speck of willful sin makes you unclean; if you were to die with that speck of sin in you, you wouldn’t go to Heaven no matter what you think. Opinions won’t get you into Heaven; it takes the Word of God, what thus saith the Lord. To be saved you must be washed through the blood of the Lamb and cease all sinning. Only the redeemed will walk this great highway of holiness that leads straight to Heaven.

Go and Sin No More

A key to speaking what God says is making sure God said it. God said, The soul that sinneth, it shall die (Ezekiel 18:4). Jesus healed a man and said, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee (John 5:14). Go and sin no more. The Lord never tells us to do anything we can’t do—with His help, of course. The reason some people say they can’t live free from sin is that they won’t yield to God and let Him help them to do so. If you can’t live free from sin, then the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Christ are of no meaning in your life; they hold no deliverance for you. The New Testament is rendered useless in your life if you can’t live free from sin.

Therefore if any man be in Christ [and that means man, woman, boy or girl], he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new (II Corinthians 5:17). A new creation: Jesus came to make a brand–new you, a new person who does not willfully sin. If you do something wrong, the Holy Spirit will let you know, and you must repent immediately. But if you commit a sin, know it’s a sin but don’t care, you’re sinning against God and He can’t work for you.

Jesus Didn’t Listen to the Devil

John 12:49, For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. The Lord commanded His Only Begotten what to speak, and He will do the same thing for you and me. Never did the Father tell Jesus to speak and receive money even though Jesus lacked the material things. He said, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head (Matthew 8:20).

After Jesus had fasted forty days and nights, the devil tempted Him: If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread (Luke 4:3). The devil tells people to do a lot of things, confusing them with false doctrine. It was not the will of God for Jesus to turn stones into bread; nowhere in the Bible does it say that it was. God has another plan for bread, a plan to furnish us bread from the good earth.

Separate the false from God’s Word. The false won’t stand before Jesus today or on the Day of Judgment. If the blind lead the blind, they’ll all fall into the ditch.

Do you want to fall into the ditch, or do you want to fall into the arms of the Holy Spirit and let Him help you climb every mountain and walk all the seas of life? If so, then you will lead a life of prayer, fasting and studying the Word of God with the Holy Spirit as your teacher. No matter how high the waves may go, you can ride a little higher on the promises of God.

God the Creator

Hebrews 11:3, Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. God made the world out of nothing; He spoke it into existence, commanding the sun, the moon, and the stars to come into being. He spoke and it was done. I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded (Isaiah 45:12).

God spoke everything into existence except human beings. For them, He got down into the dirt, made a man from it and brought him to life. 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). When the Lord told man to stand up, he stood up; he was alive. You can do anything God tells you to do.

Living by Promise

It’s an insult to God to doubt Him, to doubt His Spirit, His promises. His Word tells us that as it is written, The just shall live by faith (Romans 1:17). Live by faith in what? God’s promises.

Outside Eden we must live by promise. Under this dispensation of grace we have promises for everything, every need. When we get off the boat and walk the seas of God’s promises in this life, we will come out just fine.

Speak the Words of the Lord

The God of Heaven said through Moses: I will raise them up a Prophet [Jesus] from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him (Deuteronomy 18:18). The Lord let Moses know thousands of years in advance that a Savior would come.

I say again, it’s the Lord who commands us what to say, commands that are very different from those coming through the greed of man. The Lord said, I shall command him. He commanded His Son, Jesus, what to say; and Jesus said it.

John 12:50, And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak. Obeying God’s commandment is life everlasting—know Him! But unless you know His Word, you don’t know the Lord. The devil can deceive you, take you into fanaticism and have you involved in the idiotic acts of false doctrine. Those who are deceived are leading thousands astray; it’s a shameful thing. To say without taking God’s wishes into consideration, “I command it done and it’s done,” is a command of self, a commandment the Bible doesn’t teach. Let the Holy Spirit guide you in what to ask for; ask in the blood name of Jesus according to the will of God.

Disease Does Not Come from God

This Bible tells us that the Lord heals all manner of sicknesses and diseases. Of His divine healing there is no doubt, but it’s the Lord, never man, healing people through divine blood.

Although death is appointed to everyone who lives on planet Earth, except for those taken in the Rapture, God never said we had to die from a disease. However, death through disease is so common that when someone dies, the first thing asked is: What did he die from?

“They can’t find out.”

“What a shame; isn’t that pitiful!”

No, it’s not pitiful; death can take a child of God suddenly and in the next moment the person is in Heaven. One man in my congregation died in his sleep. When an autopsy was performed in Ohio the doctor couldn’t find anything wrong with him—other than being dead—so an autopsy was done outside Ohio and still not one thing wrong was found. The conclusion was that his heart had stopped just like a clock would stop. Isn’t that a wonderful way to go? His death reminded me of one of the men of God in Old Testament days: He leaned over his cane and was gone. By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff (Hebrews 11:21). That’s quite wonderful!

God’s Way Is Perfect

Psalm 18:30, As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. The way of the Lord is perfect. We need not stumble through the night; we have the way–maker giving us plenty of light to see the footprints of Jesus. His light always shines for us. Midnight, four o’clock in the morning or whenever, the light of God is there so we’ll never lose our way. To help others find their way—those little lambs out there in the night—His light is with us. Throughout the whole world we’re going forth to bring them in from the paths of sin.

The Father Always Hears His Children

Jesus pleased the Father, not part of the time, but all the time. He said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always (John 11:41,42). Can you say in all faith, Father, you always hear me? I don’t know how many times I’ve repeated that: Father, you always hear me. I know when I pray that the Lord is listening, and He confirms it. Holy and righteous before Him, I have not one speck of sin in my life. I pray for untold thousands of people week after week and God gives great results. God has gifted me with His healing power and people are healed of AIDS, MS, cancer, and all other kinds of death diseases. Thousands of prayers are answered; it’s marvelous! I touch little pieces of cloth, and the anointing of God that He’s placed within my body flows into those cloths.

It’s marvelous how people are being healed all over the world through this Jesus ministry. Why? I accept the commands of the Lord. He commands, and I obey. He commands, and I repeat His command in all faith, and it is done. It’s His command, not mine. Oh, thank God for the Word! We don’t have to take what people say, we take thus saith the Lord.

Become the Righteousness of God

Romans 10:6,8–10, But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise…But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith [divine faith], which we preach; 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.

Second Corinthians 5:21, For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. We have become the righteousness of God. Why believe in righteousness if you can’t live in it?

Hebrews 10:23, Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering (for he is faithful that promised;). Keep in mind that God is faithful. Man will fail, but God never fails. Our first Adam failed us, failed the whole human race; but Jesus, our second Adam, didn’t fail. When Jesus took on the fashion of a man, the devil thought for sure he would defeat Him as he had defeated Adam. He tried to get Jesus to bow down, tried in every way to get Him to sell out, but Jesus defeated Him with the Word, with “It is written.” The same devil is working with the same strategy today, trying to get children of God to sell out, to command the wrong things to be done. God’s not in it; He’s not going to listen to commands of self and the devil. The pure Word of God will turn him back every time.

No matter how many stories people in false doctrine tell, they can’t back them up with the Word of God; their stories won’t stand the Word test, won’t match the Word. Commands must go from faith to faith, from grace to grace or they aren’t right. Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth (II Timothy 2:15). Yield yourself completely to the truth of the Lord.

The Holy Spirit Will Guide into All Truth

Psalm 103:20, Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word. The Lord commands the angels and they obey; the Lord commands us, and we must obey as readily as the angels. Ages ago when some of the angels became unholy, God could no longer use them and He cast them out of Heaven with Lucifer. God will not use the unholy.

Listen to what God says, have ears to hear what the Spirit of truth, the Holy Spirit, is saying. Jesus said, When he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come (John 16:13).

The Holy Spirit will be your comforter as well as your teacher. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you (John 14:26). We’re to be taught by the Holy Spirit, taught what to ask for.

Although we find in the Word of God what we can command done because God said so, we still have to be prayed up, fasted up, and guided by the hand of God to be able to be His voice; for that’s what these commands amount to, the voice of God. When Jesus spoke here on Earth, it was the same as God speaking; and when God spoke, it came to pass. Now when the holy children of God speak, it’s the same as Jesus speaking; and when Jesus speaks, remember, it’s the same as the Father saying it.

Nothing Is Too Hard for the Lord

Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me (Jeremiah 32:27)? The Lord, the one who spoke the universe into existence, gives power through the blood of Jesus for His divine will to be done.

Jesus said, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth (Mark 9:23). All things are possible to those who believe the Word of God, believe the commands that come through the blood. You certainly couldn’t command yourself to be saved; no. After you confessed your sins, you had to believe that the Lord forgave. The Lord did the work through the Holy Ghost using the divine blood in your mind and soul.

God Will Supply Your Need

Be careful where you pay your tithe. Just to give it in the name of the Lord does not mean you will be rewarded or that the Lord will use it. No. The Lord in a divine visitation told me that if you invest in a company that goes down, you lose your investment. If you think you’re investing in the Kingdom of God when you’re not, it’s the same way; people will lose their tithe and love offering investment if they are not investing in an organization that is working according to the Word of God.

Some people have been led to believe that they can get rich by commanding things done. They feel free to send money to the preachers, hoping they’ll command something done for them. It doesn’t work that way. The Lord said to give to His work, but the money has to be used for His work of spreading the Gospel, and then He will give back to you. I heard one preacher say, I don’t pray about it; I just command it done. That’s ridiculous! We’re not serving a God who hears those kinds of commands.

When preachers use the congregation’s money to build themselves homes costing millions and millions of dollars, the congregation has lost the return on their money. Your tithes and offerings are wasted if they’re not invested in souls. It isn’t necessary to invest in mansions when souls are so precious. I live in a modest home and have for years. The Lord didn’t mention money to me when He called me to preach, and I didn’t think to mention it to Him. I was going to preach the Word, preach the truth that says my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). My God will supply—God taught me that for this work.

Years ago when I was buying many thousands of dollars worth of television equipment to use to spread the Gospel, I’d say over and over, “I remember the loaves and the fishes,” or “My God will supply.” I might be waiting for a traffic light to change and I’d be saying, “My God will supply; my God will supply!” The cost for reaching lost souls was so fantastic that there was no need for me to reason with myself; I had to reason with God. When it comes to things that are beyond me, the Lord has taught me to reason with Him. The Lord said, Come now, and let us reason together (Isaiah 1:18).

Jesus said, Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28). I take my burdens and yours to the Lord, and that’s where we all should be taking our burdens. It’s wonderful to be able to take our burdens to the Lord!

Learn What God Has Said

Matthew 12:34,36,37, For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. When you don’t say the things of God, you’re in trouble; your words are idle words. Their words condemn those who teach false doctrine, who tell people they can just command and a thing is done, who have no humility in their voices, no true looking for God’s will, only their own.

Commanding through man’s own will and not the will of God is foolishness, false doctrine going out to people today. But how wonderful it is to embrace thus saith the Lord! For the prophets of old it was thus saith the Lord. Learn what God has said, study to show yourself approved of Him, study His Word. Don’t merely look at the Bible and say you can’t understand it; seek the Holy Spirit to guide you into understanding the truth of the Word. Everything the Holy Ghost teaches matches the Word.

God help us today to know the truth about speaking what God says. I speak His truth and the blind get their sight. I speak His promise and people receive miracles for all kinds of death diseases. I speak and people are healed of AIDS. I speak and thousands are set free, but it’s the Word of God I speak, not my command. I use His command; I’m His spokesman.

The New Testament is your fantastic Will of inheritance. Jesus died and left it for you, but how well do you know it? Do you take everything you hear to that Will to see if it matches, or do you just decide that no minister would preach anything wrong? When you trust God you take everything to His Word. Don’t let anyone twist the Word, not one verse. Tell yourself: God said it, I believe it and that settles it.

Receive Salvation and Healing

You who have AIDS, cancer, diabetes, or another disease for which there’s no cure in medical science, you can have the cure through our Lord. His miracle power works, but you must give your heart to God, serve Him. Remember, His promises are conditional.

Sinner, say this prayer: Oh God, I confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of all, that He died for me, was resurrected for me, and gave His blood, divine blood, for me to be free. I put my faith in the blood of Jesus, and I believe His blood washes away all my sins. Come into my heart, Jesus! Come on in, Jesus!

If you meant that prayer, He has come; He is yours. Start reading your Bible, praying, and some Bible fasting will help you.

You who want healing for yourself or your child: Even though you may be dying with a death disease, I agree with you for the miracle. The Bible says if two will agree on anything touching Heaven, it shall be done. I’m one and you’re two. If two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven (Matthew 18:19). But, again, you must be prayed up, yielded, and want the will of God for your life to be able to touch Heaven. I’m not the healer; Jesus is the healer, but I’m agreeing with you, and if you believe the Word that I’ve been teaching you, it shall be done.

Lord, deliver the people from AIDS, the AIDS virus, cancer, heart trouble, TB, leprosy, paralysis, blindness, and all kinds of terrible diseases that are destroying the bodies of men, women, boys and girls. I curse those diseases. Heal! in the holy name of the Lord. Heal! in the all–powerful name of Jesus. Heal! Heal! I pray. Amen and amen.

Watch yourself get well; watch your child get well. But remember to live for the Lord and rear that child to love Jesus. Jesus must have all the honor, the praise and the glory; it’s a necessity.

Know what God’s Word says and then you can speak it. Recognize God’s promises; recognize His message—not man’s, but His. Let His promises become living reality to you all the time, and He will lift you into a heavenly place showing you His greatness again and again. He will serve you well so you can serve Him well by bringing in the lost before it’s too late. The God who made you is reaching for you in love; He loves you with an unending love, and that is the truth He is saying to each of His children in this last and final hour. Speak God’s truth only.
