Giving Birth to a Miracle #3
We’re going to continue on what we’ve been teaching on for the last few weeks. We’ve been ministering on the Glory of God coming into the churches, but not only do we need the Glory God coming into the churches, but we need God’s Glory in our own personal lives, and when His Glory is there things are going to happen.
I. We have been given promises from the Word of God that the Glory of God is going to fill the Church or the temple and even the Whole earth.
A. Last Thursday night right after Praise and Worship, I began to pray for the rest of the service when the HS took over, and I found myself praying about the Glory, and that how the glory was going to come into our own lives.
1. 1st the Glory was going to come into the Church, then it was going to come into our personal lives, then it was going to go to our loved ones, and then to the world.
a. Now, when the Lord gives you a Word, usually it is conditional.
i. What I’m trying to say is that it may not come in that order. A lot depends on you and your loved ones.
ii. But God’s perfect order is that it would come through the Church 1st, then into our lives, then to our loved ones (especially those that under our roof), and then to the World.
2. The Glory of God and the Miracles of God are going to come to the Churches and to our personal lives only when we come together and sit under the Anointed Word of God, and when we become men and women of the Word.
a. But it can’t just stop there. In order for the Glory to come we need to become people of PRAISE and WORSHIP.
i. Now I’m not just talking about Praise and worship for a few minutes, but I’m talking about spending time in His presence.
ii. If you think that we spend too much time in Praise and worship in this Church, just wait until you get to heaven, where many are around the throne of God day and night Worshipping God.
b. For us to experience the Glory of God at home we need to be those people of the WORD, people of PRAISE and WORSHIP, people of HOLINESS, people of FAITH, and people of PRAYER.
i. Then the Glory of God will come into your life.
II. When we begin to walk in the Glory of God, MIRACLES ARE GOING TO TAKE PLACE in our lives.
A. Now you can either give birth to those miracles or you can stop the move of God by the word that come out of your mouth.
1. Turn with me to GEN 3
a. In this chapter we have the FALL OF ADAM. But God began to prepare the way for the Messiah to come.
i. GEN 3:14-15
ii. God was speaking directly to Satan when He said, “I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it (her seed) shall bruise (Crush) thy head.
iii. Literally, that means “Christ, would deliver the fatal blow.”
b. When God spoke those words to Satan, they were just as powerful as when He said, “Let there be light.”
i. This was a prophecy of the virgin birth, but it was more than a prediction of future events.
ii. God was giving birth to a miracle by the Word of His mouth.
c. Every time God raised up a prophet, the prophet would go throughout the land prophesying of the Messiah to come.
i. God kept saying it.
2. Look at ISA 9:6
a. God was using words to give birth to a miracle.
3. Turn to LUKE 1:26-27
a. The angel Gabriel was sent by God. He was God’s representative. He spoke what God instructed him to say.
i. When God instructs someone to speak His Word, it carries the same power and even creative ability as if God Himself spoke them.
ii. Look at LUKE 1:31-33
iii. Again God was giving birth to a miracle by speaking words.
b. In (Luke 1:34) It says, “Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?” KJV
i. Mary wasn’t doubting God, but she just didn’t understand how she was going to have a child, never being with a man.
B. Gabriel began to explain it to her how this was going to happen, but look at what he said in LUKE 1:37.
1. NOW LISTEN CLOSELY, The Word “NOTHING” in this V is actually 3 different Greek words, 1 of them being the Greek work “RHEMA.”
a. “RHEMA” means “The SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.”
b. This V actually say, “NO WORD FROM GOD IS VOID OF POWER.”
2. Gabriel said to Mary, “Thou shalt conceive.”
a. Mary asked, “HOW?”
b. The angel explained, “The Word of God has been spoken over you and no word from God is void of power.”
i. When God says it, it’s so.
ii. Then Mary said in (Luke 1:38) “Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.” KJV
c. Mary received the Word and the Word was made flesh within her.
i. (John 1:14) Says, “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.” KJV
C. God will confirm His Word with signs following. He did it for the disciples and He’ll do it for you.
1. Look at MARK 16:20
a. The Lord confirmed the Word of God that was spoken with signs following.
i. When we speak the Word of God, God will confirm His Word with signs following.
b. In (Jeremiah 1:12) God says, “I will hasten my word to perform it.” KJV
i. In (ISA 55:11) God says that “His Word will not return void.”
2. Let me use this example, If a woman goes to the doctor and the doctor tells her she is pregnant. If his diagnosis is correct, his word will be confirmed with signs following.
a. The woman and her husband will even begin to change some things (Buying things, getting the house ready, even their life style will change) because they believe what was spoken.
b. Many times people will believe what a doctor tells them, but will not believe what God says in His Word.
i. The Word says, “By Jesus stripes you are healed.”
ii. He says that He will supply all of our needs according to His riches by Christ Jesus.
iii. But many times people refuse to believe that they can walk in health or that God will prosper them.
iv. We might need to change our life style and do things differently.
v. We need to act like the Word of God is true and that God is telling the truth.
c. We should respond to the Word of God as Mary did, even if we don’t fully understand it.
i. Mary said, “Be it unto me according to thy Word.”
ii. With those words, she believed and received the Word of God, and she gave birth to a miracle.
iii. Get a hold of what God’s Word says about you and begin to speak it over your life. Believe His Word more than any other report, and you too will give birth to a miracle.
iv. Those words that you speak will be made flesh. In other words, the Words that you speak will manifest.
