Diminishing The Darkness By Lifting Up the Marvelous
Light Of Jesus Christ
-- by Marcia Greenwood
the book of Genesis, Chapter One, we read over and over about the power
that comes from the words that we speak. In verse 3 God said, “Let there be light, and there was light. In verses 6-29 – God said something. Now notice something very important in this same chapter. Each time God said something the Word says that “God saw.” God knew that when He said something, the thing that He said would some to pass.
This month I want to encourage you to “watch over the words that you speak.”
God tells us to watch how we speak, to control our tongues - for in
Proverbs 18:21 - He tells us that the tongue has the power of life and
death, and those who love it will eat its fruit. Please get this! What we say (sow) – we WILL receive (reap)!
What are you reaping? I can tell you that what you are reaping has a direct connection to what you are sowing - through the power of your tongue. If you want improvement in any of these areas then change what you say about these situations. Speak life and not death.
If you want to reap abundance in your finances, then first of all tithe
- without holding back in the best of times or the leanest of
times. Secondly, speak: God provides all my needs. Speak that you will be blessed financially, speak that you will have enough money to cover your needs, speak that you will get out of debt. Speak life into your finances and not death.
Proverbs 18:7 – A fool's mouth (speaking) is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul. When you speak doubt, fear, worry, sickness or lack – you are speaking the opposite of the Word of God, you are walking right into a snare, a trap of the devil - and he can and will use your very words against you and bring to pass what you say.
So again, I say to each of you – if you want a change in your life then change the words you are speaking.
God says -I give you life and death, blessings and coursings – Choose
Life! Repent of your words of death, rebuke that curse you have
sown and begin to speak words of life, in every area of your life – then you will reap an abundant life.
We thank you for your prayers and financial support to TGM, we need
you! We pray for you everyday, we speak life and blessings over you.
On The Word
-- by Tim Greenwood
I will be releasing a new book titled, “Good Faith and Biblical
Contracts” which will illustrate how every promise and statement of
fact in the Bible is, in actuality, a good faith contract between you
and God. Below is a small snippet from the book.
you imagine having to laboriously drag a pile of heavy boxes, parcels
or un-wheeled luggage, inch by inch for a very long distance?
Matthew 11:28-30 says, “Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy
laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of
me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your
souls, for my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
The Greek word for burden here is G5413: an invoice.
i.e., An invoice is a bill or debt memo which itemizes services
rendered and clearly states who owes what to whom, (An invoice is a
type of contract).
The entire passage could be translated as follows:
Come to Me ALL of
you that are fatigued and over burdened or overloaded. I will
release your restraints. Partner with Me and learn from Me, and
obtain re-creation of your spirit. For I AM (and have always
been), gentle and humble hearted. My partnership is really useful
(if employed) and my invoice is much less for you to carry (my bill is
really light weight).
Have you ever used the services of UPS, FedEx
or some other commercial carrier to carry your package? Have you
ever used the services of a skycap at an airport or a bellhop at a
hotel to carry and handle your luggage?
The commercial carrier either had you sign an invoice/contract or
expected payment up front before they carried your package
(burden). In the case of the skycap or bellhop, the agreement or
contract is assumed and they expected payment for their services
Jesus is saying, Excuse me. I see that you are really struggling
with that burden. If you are willing to partner with me, I’ll
gently and humbly carry that burden for you. All you will have to
carry is My invoice, which lists what I have done and what you owe Me
for the service.
With what are you
overburdened? Is it sickness, disease, addiction, compulsion,
poverty, lack or something else? Jesus will gently and humbly
carry that burden for you, leaving you carrying only His itemized
So, for you religious folks, NO, I’m NOT saying that Jesus is JUST some
cosmic bellhop! Carrying my burden, was His idea, not mine!
I’m just glad He did! And Jesus isn’t JUST – anything! Jesus is my God, my Savior, my High Priest, my Lord and my King!
And included on OUR itemized invoice is Isaiah 53:4-5: “Surely he has borne OUR griefs, and he, has carried OUR sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he,
was wounded for OUR transgressions, he, was bruised for OUR iniquities:
the chastisement of OUR peace was upon him and with his stripes WE are
What could be simpler than that? You give Him your luggage, your
baggage, your burden, your stuff – and He gives you your invoice and
you don’t have to take your stuff back.
Now, the invoice is extremely expensive – in fact it’s more than you
could ever repay. But guess what? It’s marked, “PAID”!
