Jesus Sent to Earth to Bear Witness to God’s “Supernatural” Words

Jesus showed us examples of the power of God’s Words.

God told Moses He would send a Prophet (who is Jesus) to the World to bear witness to His Words and we are required to learn them (see Deuteronomy 18:18-19 & Acts 3:22-23).

Jesus did many miracles like healing the blind man:

Jesus even testified to Roman Pontius Pilate that this is exactly why He was Sent to Earth… to bear witness to Truth (John 18:37). “Truth” = God’s “Supernatural” Words (see Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17-19).

Then they crucified Jesus (who is the Word of God – See Revelation 19:13).

God made all Creation with His spoken Word. Jesus did His miracles by using the Ways of God’s Holy Words and Holy Spirit.  The Words of our King are Powerful! (Ecclesiastes 8:4)  🙂

NOTICE:
The “Word” that the Lord speaks of is not only about reading (and teaching) the whole Bible. Surely we are to do that. But, He is speaking of the knowing the meanings of His messages in His Parables, Sayings and Words so we hear, understand and follow His “Voice” and His “Way”. Jesus said “My sheep hear my voice ” (John 10:27) and He was speaking of understanding the “symbolism” in His speech.

He wants us to know what He means when He speaks His Holy Words like:

Blood, Bread, Flesh, Food, Fruit, Gather, Milk, Mountain, Oil, Seed, Stand, Table, Truth, Vine, Voice, Walk, Wash, Way, Wine, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.

Related Verses:

Deuteronomy 18:18-19 (KJV)
18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

John 18:37
37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

John 17:17-19
17 Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.

19 And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.

Acts 3:22-23
22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.

23 And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.

2 Examples of the Ways of the Lord’s Holy Words and Spirits

The Bible contains stories and parables that illustrate the Ways of His Words and 7 Spirits (which are listed in Isaiah 11:2) IN ACTION.

Here are 2 quick examples:

Example 1:

Elijah and the Resurrection of the Widow’s Son (1st Kings 17:17-24)

Why did Elijah do what he did 3 times during the resurrection of the widow’s son in 1st Kings 17:17-24? It has to do with the 3rd  Spirit and what it does.

Example 2:

His Word: “Bread” and why Jesus “Broke Bread” with people

Why did Jesus break bread with people? Because it’s symbolic of the “Bread from Heaven” (John 6:22-40) which is instruction from God in Heaven. Doing the “Way” of His Holy Word “Bread” by breaking bread with others enables the Holy Spirit to give instruction to the people and help teach them. Jesus and the Holy Spirit teaches better than any man can. The “Greater Promise” in the Word “Bread” is the Holy Spirit giving us instruction. God sees ALL and breaking bread is a way we can communicate with Him that we want instruction from Him.

The Lord wants us to understand and DO the Ways of His Holy Words and Spirits. Jesus is our one true Shepherd and He wants us all to pray to Him and ASK Him to pour out His Spirit upon us and He will teach us His Holy Words (See Proverbs 1:23).

Proverbs 1:23 (NKJV)
23 Turn at my rebuke;
Surely I will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.

Isaiah 11:2 – The 7 Spirits
The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him,
The Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
The Spirit of counsel and might,
The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord.

1) The Spirit of the Lord
2) The Spirit of Wisdom
3) The Spirit of Understanding
4) The Spirit of Counsel
5) The Spirit of Might
6) The Spirit of Knowledge
7) The Spirit of the Fear of the Lord

God sent Jesus to offer us salvation. Plus, He sent Jesus to bear witness to the Words of God (Deuteronomy 18:18-19) and testify of them (John 18:37). The “Good News” (aka “Gospel”) is that Jesus is the Word of God, His Holy Words contain Greater Promises (“Supernatural”) and He wants us to learn and do the Ways of them.

God sent Jesus to Earth to Bear Witness to God’s Words:

Deuteronomy 18:18-19
18 I will raise up for them a Prophet like you from among their brethren, and will put My words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. 19 And it shall be that whoever will not hear My words, which He speaks in My name, I will require it of him. (God is speaking to Moses here about the Prophet who is Jesus.)

Jesus Testifies of His Holy Words:

John 18:37
37 Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?”
Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”

His word is Truth (John 17:17 & Psalm 119:160) and we are to get Sanctified by His Truth (His Holy Words).

John 17:17-19

17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. 18 As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.

Psalm 119:160

160 The entirety of Your word is truth,
And every one of Your righteous judgments endures forever.

Please spread the Good News.  🙂

The Greater Promises in the Lord’s Words

God’s Word is Law (Psalm 119:142) and God’s Word contains thousands of promises just waiting for you to claim them and use them in your daily life. Here are a few examples:

Love, Joy and Peace

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, (Galatians 5:22)

[Notice: “longsuffering” is having or showing patience in spite of troubles, especially those caused by other people.]

Health

103 Bless the Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
3 Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
4 Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalms 103:2-5)

[Notice: See verse 1 where it says “His holy name”. His Name is “the Word of God” – Revelation 19:13]

Protection

A Law/Promise of God is the promise of protection given in Psalm 91 and these verses:

No weapon formed against you shall prosper,
And every tongue which rises against you in judgment
You shall condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,
And their righteousness is from Me,”
Says the Lord. (Isaiah 54:17)

“And it shall come to pass
That whoever calls on the name of the Lord
Shall be saved.” (Joel 2:32)

[Notice: In Joel 2:32 above, see where it says “calls on the name of the Lord”. His Name is “the Word of God” – Revelation 19:13 –  and we are to know and “call on” His Holy Words. For example, we can call on His Word “Bread” by breaking bread with others just like Jesus did. See explanation below.]

Instruction from God
Jesus’ Holy Word “Bread” which in John 6:22-40 is shown to be the “Bread from Heaven” is His instruction from God in Heaven. This is why Jesus “Broke Bread” with people… it enables the Holy Spirit provide instruction to them. He would do this when gathering and teaching and so should we. I’m sure He still does this up in Heaven.  🙂

Everlasting Life

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. (John 5:24)

Filling Up with the Holy Spirit (and learning His Words)

“Turn at my rebuke; Surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you.” (Proverbs 1:23)

“If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. (John 14:15-17)

There are many other interesting Laws and Promises of God that you may want to know and use which are in these Words:

* Blood, * Bow, * Flesh, * Food, * Fruit, * Gather, * Milk, * Mountain, * Oil, * Ox, * Seed, * Stand, * Sword, * Table, * Truth, * Vine, * Voice, * Walk, * Wash, * Way, * Wine, * etc.

7 Spirits
We can also learn the Ways of His 7 Spirits which are listed in Isaiah 11:1-2.

Amazing!  Knowing about these promises is God’s word brings the Bible into a whole new light. It’s like an instruction manual that shows you how to have joy, love, health, peace, protection, eternal life and so much more.

Please spread the Good News.   🙂

May God bless you and yours.

Bread in John 6:22-40 is not just bread for your stomach.
It’s “Manna from Heaven” and is symbolic of instruction from God in Heaven.
Breaking bread enables the Holy Spirit to give us instruction.
It’s a way of communicating to the Lord that you want instruction from Him.
notice-sm
This is what makes these Holy Words so powerful.
They are a Way of Communicating with the Lord.

Fish are symbolic of His Holy Words.
He wants us to take a few fish (Holy Words) and feed (teach) His people.

Take the Victory in the Natural by Winning in the Spiritual First

Are you trying to overcome challenges in your life?

Win in the Spiritual first, to take the Victory in the Natural.

David and Goliath

david-goliath

In the classic story of Good vs evil we know as “David and Goliath“, David defeated the enemy (Goliath) in the Spiritual Realm first, by using the Name of the Lord. (The Lord’s Name is the “Word of God” – Revelation 19:13) Then, he defeated Goliath in the natural realm (the world).

Before you go to battle, put on the whole armor of God:

armor-of-god

Ephesians 6:13-18
13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—

notice
The “Whole Armor of God” includes Spiritual weapons of warfare, not physical.  We take victory in the natural world by  first winning in the Spiritual.

Victory is assured when we Follow these 2 steps:

1) First Defeat the Enemy in the Spiritual Realm
2) Then Victory is Assured in the Natural Realm (the World)

satan is a liar and all he can do is COPY the Lord.

In 1 Samuel 17:4-7 notice that Goliath has armor and weapons that COPY what the Lord has given us as listed in the “Whole Armor of God” verses of Ephesians 6:13-18 (see above).

1 Samuel 17:4-7
4 And a champion went out from the camp of the Philistines, named Goliath, from Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. 5 He had a bronze helmet on his head, and he was armed with a coat of mail, and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of bronze. 6 And he had bronze armor on his legs and a bronze javelin between his shoulders. 7 Now the staff of his spear was like a weaver’s beam, and his iron spearhead weighed six hundred shekels; and a shield-bearer went before him.

Goliath was Missing the Most Important Piece of Armor!

Compared to the “Whole Armor of God” (listed in Ephesians 6:13-18), what was Goliath missing?

The belt of Truth

belt-of-truth

David challenged Goliath in the one area where Goliath was NOT protected: The belt of Truth. (See Samuel 17:45 below) What is “Truth”? His Word is Truth (Psalm 119:160 & John 17:17) The belt of Truth is the first item listed because it is by far the most important!

Samuel 17:45
45 Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.

  1. First Defeat the Enemy in the Spiritual Realm
  2. Then Victory is Assured in the Natural Realm (the World)

David defeated the enemy (Goliath) in the Spiritual Realm first, by using the Name of the Lord. Then, he defeated Goliath in the natural realm.

  1. David said to Goliath “I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.”
  2. Then David used his sling and Sent that Rock, and God did His part by having it hit Goliath right in the temple which brought the giant down. (In the Bible, the “Rock” is symbolic of the Lord… who IS the Word of God.)

david-goliath2

ACTION STEP:
To win our battles, we need to do the same thing. What happens in the physical realm is a manifestation of the Spiritual Realm. The Lord has given us Spiritual weapons of warfare that give us victory over the Spiritual Realm which will then affect the physical realm (the world).

So, stop focusing on what is happening in the natural realm in our lives and start winning in the Spiritual Realm so that the victory comes into our lives and the world around us. As it says in Zechariah 4:6 , the Battle is won with His Spirit.

Zechariah 4:6

6 So he answered and said to me:

“This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel:
Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’
Says the Lord of hosts.

Let’s get out there and let’s win this battle!

His Word: Oil

Oil is symbolic of Knowledge.

Using Oil is symbolic of our desire to enable the receiving of knowledge from God. Using oil is a way of showing God you desire knowledge from Him. In the Bible there are many different types of oils used such as:

  • olive oil,
  • frankincense oil,
  • and myrrh oil.

Olive Oil

oil-olive
The dipping bread in oil is symbolically saying that we want to receive knowledge from God.

bread-jesus-break

You should also put a little salt on your bread before dipping it in oil because of the instruction given in Leviticus 2:13 (every grain offering to be seasoned with salt). Salt is symbolic of being humble.

Frankincense Oil

oil-frankincense
Frankincense Oil is used for enabling us to build the knowledge of Wisdom – the 2nd Spirit of God – the Spirit of Wisdom. (See the 7 Spirits listed in Isaiah 11:2)

The application of the Frankincense Oil is a communication to the Lord that you desire that your heart know His Words of Wisdom in your heart and that your mind be caused to be able to receive understanding of His Ways. That way the mouth will speak in the Ways of His Holy set apart Words and the hands will be doers of the Ways of His Holy set apart Words. Therefore this is extremely important oil.

Frankincense Oil is so important that the Father sent foreign wise men to Bethlehem to provide this gift for the use of the Lord Jesus. Jesus became the wisest to have ever lived.

Frankincense oil is used by applying it to both temples of your head.

head-temples

Myrrh Oil

oil-myrrh
Myrrh Oil is for enabling us to plant a firm foundation of the fruit of Good Works.  This reveals that they are desiring to walk in the Ways of God to do Good and not evil so that we will complete the Work that God has for us to do.  That is the work of the 3rd Spirit of God – the Spirit of Understanding.  (See the 7 Spirits listed in Isaiah 11:2) This is why the Myrrh Oil is used for anointing our feet that we will be able to walk in the Way that the Lord has made known and that is the Way of the Will of the Father for us.
