A CLOSED MOUTH IS A CLOSED DESTINY – words activate faith!

A CLOSED MOUTH IS A CLOSED DESTINY – words activate faith!

I can imagine the hopelessness and stagnation Joseph felt in his life over the years of rejection, displacement and slavery. I can imagine the thoughts that flooded his soul, seeing his dream crushed by circumstances and family. I bet sometimes he regretted speaking out or sharing his dreams even to the people he thought loved him! Sometimes he might have thought, maybe the devil aborted his dream because he revealed it prematurely and should have kept quiet.

But let me shock you child of God.. If Joseph kept quiet he wouldn’t have been sold, and ended up in a place his dream would be actualized.. Sometimes God uses the mistakes we made to launch us where we should be! Whether you feel like you’ve been driven further from your dream by circumstances, the truth is; All things are working together for your Good!

A CLOSED MOUTH IS A CLOSED DESTINY – words activate faith!

God’s purpose will always prevail, as long as you don’t give up and lose HOPE… See Faith is the substance of things “HOPED” for… without Hope, Faith can’t be actualized! The only thing the enemy can do is to bring you into a state of Hopelessness, because He knows without Hope, faith can’t manifest, and without Faith it’s impossible to please God!! Never lose Hope no matter what…

 

MIRACLES COMES WITH PRINCIPLES – THE LESSON OF NAAMAN

By: Bishop William B Caractor

Who Was Naaman In The Bible: Naaman in the Bible was the commander of the Syrian army who was healed of his leprosy by Elisha the prophet. Naaman was highly esteemed by the king of Syria (or Aram) because of the many victories won by the Syrian army. The Bible calls Naaman “a valiant soldier.” His story is recorded in 2 Kings 5:1–19.

It so happened that Naaman’s wife had a servant—a little Israelite girl who had been captured during a Syrian raid. One day the little girl told her mistress, “If only my master would see the prophet who is in Samaria!

He would cure him of his leprosy” (2 Kings 5:3). Naaman relayed this information to the king of Syria, who sent Naaman to Samaria with a letter to the king of Israel regarding the matter and a gift of silver, gold, and clothing. In the letter, the Syrian king asked the king of Israel to cure Naaman’s leprosy.

Upon reading the letter, the king of Israel was frightened, believing the king of Syria was trying to pick a fight with him. He tore his clothes (a sign of grieving) and said, “Am I God? Can I kill and bring back to life?

Why does this fellow send someone to me to be cured of his leprosy?” (2 Kings 5:7). The king of Israel obviously forgot there was a miracle-working prophet in his kingdom—the Syrians knew more about God’s work in Israel than did Israel’s own king.

Elisha heard about the letter, and he calmed the king’s fear, telling him to send Naaman to him (2 Kings 5:8). When Naaman arrived at Elisha’s home, Elisha sent a messenger to tell him to wash in the Jordan River seven times, and that his flesh would be restored to normal after the seventh wash (verse 10). Naaman’s response to Elisha’s word was not good.

The Syrian commander was furious: Elisha had not come out to meet him personally; there had been no incantations, no ceremony, no spectacle at all (verse 11). Also, Naaman disliked the idea of bathing in the Jordan, which he considered inferior to the waters of his homeland (verse 12). He could have stayed home and washed in any one of the rivers near him, and it would have done him more good than the Jordan would ever do.

As the proud Naaman was storming off, his servants spoke to him: “If the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more, then, when he tells you, ‘Wash and be cleansed’!” (2 Kings 5:13). Their logic was solid: Naaman had been prepared to do something monumental—something difficult or expensive or dangerous, even.

But the prophet had asked for something simple. Shouldn’t Naaman at least give it a try? Bathing in the Jordan was easy. They persuaded their master that he should try the prescribed cure. So Naaman relented and washed seven times. To his amazement, Elisha’s cure worked—“His flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy” (verse 14). Naaman was cured of his leprosy.

After this, Naaman and his retinue returned to Elisha and offered a gift— ten talents of silver, six thousand shekels of gold, ten sets of clothing—Elisha could take whatever he wanted. But the prophet of God would take nothing, despite Naaman’s urging (2 Kings 5:16). Elisha made it clear that God’s healing was free and that miracles were not for sale (see Acts 8:20).

Before he left for home, Naaman gave evidence that his heart had changed, as well as his body. He said to Elisha, “Now I know that there is no God in all the world except in Israel” (2 Kings 5:15). Naaman gave up his pagan idols then and there. He asked that he be allowed to take back two mule-loads of dirt from Israel on which he could offer sacrifices to Israel’s God, promising that he would “never again make burnt offerings and sacrifices to any other god but the Lord” (verse 17).

One thing still bothered Naaman’s conscience. Part of his responsibility as commander of the Syrian army was to accompany the king to the temple of Rimmon, a pagan god of Syria. As the king worshiped, Naaman was to be at his side (2 Kings 5:18).

Naaman asked the Lord for forgiveness in advance, since he now knew that Rimmon was a false god (who could not heal leprosy). Elisha assured Naaman that all would be well and that God saw his heart (verse 19). Naaman returned to Syria rejoicing in his new found faith and in his restored physical health.

Yours in Jesus Christ!

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR FATE WITH FAITH

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR FATE WITH FAITH –

Disaster after disaster overwhelms us: Our loved one’s health deteriorates. Medical bills pile up. Insurance balks at paying. Our spirit plummet. Then the car won’t start. The circumstances of life seem to crash on us like enormous waves over a small fishing boat. We feel like Jesus’s disciples on the stormy Sea of Galilee, while Lord sleep.

We desperately scamper to solve our own problems. We try to keep our heads above water on the tumultuous sea of life. We pray like the frantic disciples prayed: ” Lord, don’t you care that we are perishing? Or we say like Martha did after her brother, Lazarus died ” Lord, if You were here, things wouldn’t be like this.”

In all things, God  commanded us to count it all joy and exercise faith.

James 1:2 says: ” Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, when you face trials of many kind.”

How to determine your fate with faith – with faith, what we see is not what we get, we may see frustration but it is blessing in disguise. With faith we get God’s full attention and every spiritual blessings, which then manifest in material abundance. so stop looking at circumstances, start looking at God and activate your faith with works. He is in control. Have faith.
