What do I mean God has changed your diagnosis? In Genesis 17:4,5 God told Abraham that He had made him a father of many nations, but in Romans 4:19 the scripture says that his body was dead and his wife’s womb was dead. Now, we know you can’t physically be a father of many nations when you have a dead body and your wife’s womb is dead. Despite that God said He had made him a father of many nations which means that God had to have done something about his and her bodies. Now, here’s what you need to understand, God did not physically make him a father of many nations, but that’s what he was in the spirit. Don’t make the mistake of thinking of the spirit realm as less real than the physical realm. The spirit realm was first and the physical realm came out of the spirit realm. So, without the spirit realm there would be no physical realm. Now, when God does something in the spirit it has the ability to be manifested physically. Take God himself for example, John 4:24 says that God is a spirit and yet 1 Timothy 3:16 says that God(who is spirit) was manifested in the flesh(physical). Notice, what the word calls Jesus in John 1:14 the word(spirit) made flesh(physical).
Notice, even though God did something in the spirit it had no affect on him nor his wife physically because his body was still dead and her womb was still dead. Because when God does something for you in the spirit it’s up to you to receive it by faith. But, what people do a lot of times is wait for God to do it physically. They wait until their senses can detect something before they believe God has done something. Notice, they had nothing in the natural to tell them that God had done something. That’s why when it’s by faith you don’t look to your body to tell you if God has done something but, the word. The word tells you what God has done not your body. Your body can tell you when you have received something not if God has done something. Notice, in Romans 4:19 it says that Abraham did not consider the deadness of his body nor the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He didn’t put his focus on this physical realm. That’s what the word says in 2 Corinthians 4:17,18 17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. Notice, in verse 18 while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen so even though it’s not seen(spiritual) he still calls it a thing which means it exists.
Notice, what God did He changed their names to fit what He promised for Abraham means-father of a multitude and Sarah means-Princess of nations. It’s very important that you line your words with God’s word even when things don’t look like it. Romans 4:17 speaks of God calls things that be not as though they were. God call things that are not(manifested) as though they were(manifested). And that’s what He is having them to do because physically they were not that. Just like in Joel 3:10 the scripture says, Let the weak say I am strong. Notice, God knows you may be weak physically, but He says don’t speak that say I am strong. Well, the scripture says that the Lord is our strength and we know there is no weakness in God. Notice, what God is doing trying to get people to stop speaking natural facts and start speaking spiritual truth. Because, God works with your words so that makes your words very important. In Numbers 14:1-4 when the people murmured against Moses and Aaron notice God’s response, He told the people that as you have spoken in my ears so will I do unto you. In Titus 1:3 it says that God manifests his word through preaching. That word preaching means to proclaim or speak out. Well, that’s in line with what He says in Isaiah 57:19, I create the fruit of the lips. And in Proverbs 18:21 it says, Death and life are in the power of the tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. So, your words are very important in receiving from God.
In 1 Corinthians 1:28 it says that God hath chosen to use things which are not to bring to nought(nothing) things that are. God uses things which are not(manifested) that’s spiritual things to bring to nothing things that are (manifested)that’s physical things. God uses spiritual things to get rid of physical things by your words. Remember Abraham and Sarah they had to speak in line with what God said. Remember Joel 3:10 they were told to speak in line with what the word says. And it’s important that you speak in line with what the word says and not present circumstances. God used “A father of many nations have I made thee” to get rid of the deadness in his body by his words. God used what the word says that God is our strength to get rid of weakness by their words. Because, in Isaiah 55:11 God says that his word shall not return to him void(without producing), but shall accomplish that which He pleases. His word returns to him by you speaking it and He tells you in Hebrews 10:23 to hold fast to your confession of faith. That word confession means to say the same thing so you are to hold fast to saying the same thing as God in faith because God is faithful. Hold fast to your confession that with his stripes I am healed (Isaiah 53:5). Hold fast to your confession of faith that himself took my infirmities and bore my sicknesses (Matt. 8:17). Hold fast to your confession of faith that by his stripes I was healed (1 Peter 2:24). Hold fast to your confession of faith that Christ has redeemed me from the curse of the law (Galatians 3:13). That is done in the spirit right now. And God will use those things to get rid of your condition by your words. I am a first hand witness, when sickness attacked my body I held fast to my confession of faith and in a matter of time God manifested his word, He used what the word says about my healing to bring to nought what was going on in my body and I am still free all thanks be to God.
It is not God’s will that any should perish (2 Peter 3:9). And I wouldn’t want to end this article without giving someone the opportunity to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. It’s very easy just pray: Dear God- I know I have sinned and I now turn from them and I invite Jesus to come into my heart (Revelation 3:20). He died for my sins and you have raised him from the dead and I now confess that Jesus is my Lord and Savior (Romans 10:9,10). I thank you for saving me, Amen
