When we learn that the Father and His word are one, the Bible will become a new book.  When we realize that it is the
Master speaking directly to us, then it becomes a reality.

Jesus tells us in John 12:47-48, “And if any man hear my sayings, and keep them not, I judge him not: for I come not to
judge the world, but to save the world.  He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my sayings, hath one that judgeth him:
the word that I spake, the same shall judge him in the last day.  For I spake not from myself: but the Father that sent me,
he hath given me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.”

Nowhere does Jesus claim to be original, that the words that he speaks are original.  Always He declares that He is
speaking His Father’s words.

When Jesus healed the sick, it was the Word of the Father upon His lips.  When He said, “Lazarus, come forth,” it was
the Father’s words that did the miracle.

When He spoke to the tree and it died, it was the Father’s word upon His lips.  When He hushed the sea, when He
multiplied the bread, when he healed the sick and raised the dead, it was the Father’s Word upon His lips.

When He said, “I am the light of the world.”  He was but speaking what His Father gave Him to speak.

The Father’s words in Jesus’ lips, then, brought life to the dead, healing to the sick, perfect limbs to the maimed, food
for the hungry, sight for the blind, and deliverance from the fear of a watery grave.

Can you grasp the significance of this?

Jesus did it all with words.

Now He has given to us His words.  He is the surety of this New Covenant from Matthew to Revelation.  We can use His
words now.  His words in our lips will perform the same kind of miracles that the Father’s words did in His lips.

It is a problem of our utilizing what He has given to us.  To illustrate, He has filled the earth with oil, but if no one paid
any attention to it, and we had reached a place, we will assume, where we desperately needed oil and gas, but we have
ignored the storehouse that is filled with oil, that is an example of what we are doing with His living word.

Today we have power to heal every sick one, we have ability to meet every need of men and women around us, and
those needs are greater than the need for oil or gas.

We have the words that have healing, that have salvation, that have deliverance, that have joy, that have peace, that
have rest.  We have the words that will build faith into the discouraged, strength into the weak, hope into the heart of
the hopeless, and deliverance for those who are being held in captivity.

We refrain from using the words that will do it.

You understand that God’s ability is wrapped up in His words.  Those words have been given to us.  We can use them.

How desperately the world needs them.  Now you begin to speak His words.  Let them become living things in your lips.  
You dare to say to the sick, “In Jesus’ Name you are healed,” to the man in captivity, “In Jesus’ Name, demon, leave this

Dare to take our place.
