The Word of God is the Final Word
The Word of God is the Last Word on everything.
Almighty God could change every Bible in the world in the twinkling of an eye,
so we know
the Word of God says just what He wants it to say in just the way He wants it
Jesus fought the devil with the written Word of God.
He is our example.
We, as His followers must do as He taught us to do by example.
In Matthew 4, every time the devil said something to Him,
HE SAID SOMETHING BACK - OUT LOUD,
and He quoted the Word of God, saying "It is written...."
This is how we must fight the Good fight of faith, with
the Written Word of God.
A Clean Heart gets heard by God
Psalm 66:18 says:
"If I regard Iniquity in my heart, The Lord will not hear me."
1 Peter 3:12 says:
"The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous
and His Ears are open to their prayers"
If I am allowing unholy things in my heart (my imagination)
, the Lord is not going to hear me.
But If I am Righteous, His ears are open to my prayers.
The problem is - we are always (hopefully) fighting unholy
to enter our minds and hearts.
And as a result - in our own strength We Are Not Righteous.
I don't want to talk to empty sky, I want God to hear and answer, don't
Praying without results is no fun at all.
Praying and watching God answer is a Thrill and a Kick!
Thats where we as Praying People,
- for whom
effective prayer is NOT an OPTION - IT IS VITAL -
always get clean before
~~~~~~ According to the Word of God ~~~~~~
"Purge me...and I shall be clean.
Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow."
1 John 1:8-10 says:
"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and
the truth is not in us.
If we confess our
sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is
not in us."
Here is one of
the Biggest keys TO ANSWERED PRAYER:
confession to God of
any unconfessed sin,
BEFORE WE PRAY.
I don't know everything,
but I know what the word "ALL" means.
Let me ask you a question,
When HE cleanses you - According to His Word -
OF ALL UNrighteousness,
What does that leave?
- THAT'S WHAT ! ! !
UNAdulterated righteousness -
Uncompromised Righteousness -
PURE RIGHTEOUSNESS THAT ONLY HIS WORD CAN GIVE,
You will never be able to be GOOD ENOUGH to get this
PURE RIGHTEOUSNESS by your own works.
It ONLY comes from HIM and the Promise in HIS WORD.
ALWAYS START YOUR INTERCESSION -
or praying for your own needs
with getting your heart clean according to His Word!
Let me ask you one more thing,
Did Jesus have UNrighteousness ?????
Or, did He have PURE RIGHTEOUSNESS?
When you pray with the SAME RIGHTEOUSNESS
that JESUS walked in -
we have the same Favor with God that HE had on earth!
If you will just confess your sin and ask forgiveness before
then QUOTE 1 John 1:9 OUT LOUD (like HE showed us) saying,
"IT IS WRITTEN: If
we confess our sins,
He is faithful and just
to forgive us our sins,
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
You will begin a Thrilling Journey
EFFECTIVE PRAYER !
"He does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.
For as high as the heavens are
above the earth,
so great is his love for those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far has he removed our transgressions from us."
