Prayer 2021 - November 17 - Don't Charge the Atmosphere with Unbelief pt 1

Scripture For Today:

 Matthew 24:20

“Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath…”

Don’t Charge the Atmosphere with Unbelief pt 1

Words.  Words are one of THE most important things about prayer that you can learn about.

Do you remember the grade school rhyme that went, “Sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me?”  It sounded cute. But it was filled with unbelief.  Plus, if you were facing down a bully, he would usually stop using words and turn it into something that “could” hurt you!

My point, and we’ve discussed this over and over, is WORDS MATTER. 

Your words matter.

More importantly, The WORD OF GOD matters the most!

So, if God’s Word, and Jesus IS the Word of God  made flesh, matters THE MOST…

And you words matter, let’s say, “second most,”

Wouldn’t work out THE BEST if your words matched up with God’s Words in every situation?

Think about this… What created EVERYTHING?

God’s Words.

Nothing happened until GOD SPOKE.

Go to Genesis 1:1-4 and let’s take a look at it…

“In the beginning, GOD created the heaven and the earth…”

That heaven, by the way, is NOT where God resides. It is talking about SPACE. (singular and notice the lower case “h”) Later on, it talks about the atmosphere…but I digress…

“In the beginning, GOD created the heaven and the earth…”

“And the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep…”

“And the Spirit of God MOVED upon the face of the waters…”

So, picture this with me… there is NOTHING.  

The earth HAD NO FORM. It was a void. Nothing. 

Darkness was there. 

Elsewhere, we can read that “God is light.” And darkness always refers to the devil and evil, correct?

Could it be that this was Satan’s dwelling after God kicked him out of Heaven?  Jesus said He “saw satan fall like lightning, from Heaven and cast down to the earth.”  Could this have been where Satan was cast into because of his transgression?

It makes sense, if you think about it. 

God wants to SHOW Satan how mistaken he was in thinking “nobody could love and worship God unless God “makes them do it.” Then it is not out of Love, but fear…”

So, when God decides to create man and show Satan that a free will being will choose God over all else, God decides to do it right where Satan can see it.  Amen!

I’m already out of time…so let’s finish these verses and take it up there tomorrow…

“In the beginning, GOD created the heaven and the earth…”

“And the earth was without form, and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep…”

“And the Spirit of God MOVED upon the face of the waters…”

“And God SAID, “Light BE and Light WAS. And God saw the Light, and that it was GOOD.”

Quick close in summary…

Nothing was happening UNTIL GOD SPOKE WORDS.  That is how powerful words are. And since WE are created in His image and Jesus has given us His authority – we can use Words to create, just like He did…

Ok. Let’s leave it there for today…

Let’s Pray!

Bob Thibodeau

Pastor Robert Thibodeau has been in online ministry since starting his own podcast in mid-2009. Within about six months, he was offered a slot on nationwide Christian AM radio. His broadcast was heard in four major markets for one year.

He then started what today is called, "Evangelism Radio" and went live 24/7 beginning on October 4, 2010 and continues to this day. Now with over 50 broadcasters submitting programming on a weekly basis, Evangelism Radio has listeners in over 160 nations and all 50 states. It was also ranked by Shoutcast.com as #1 in the world in the Christian Talk genre on many occasions.

In late 2017, Pastor Bob began an interview style podcast called "The Kingdom Cross Roads Podcast." On this podcast, Pastor Bob interviews Christians from various walks of life on how they use their Faith to achieve success. Authors, recording artists, business CEO's, non-profit leaders and pastors and ministers frequent the show and provide amazing insight to build your faith. In only 3 years time, The KCR Podcast has published almost 900 episodes and Pastor Bob conducted over 700 interviews!

In early 2018, in response to the lack of any Christian themed podcast hosting platform in the market place, Pastor Bob coordinated with the iconic Mark Asquith and his team, with the result being "FaithCasters.net." A "Christian podcast hosting and marketing company created by Christians for Christians."

Due to the immense success Pastor Bob has achieved in the online ministry world, he is often asked by others "How to start a podcast." Not wanting to refer Christian brothers and sisters back into the world for help in establishing a Christian themed podcast, he started to develop the "Podcast-Training" platform offered through our ministry. He conducts training on a weekly basis to assist others in the development of their own personal podcast as well as ministry related podcasts that can air on Evangelism Radio.

Now, he has placed all of this information under one website location, "Podcasters for Christ." This makes it easier for other Christians to find the services they need in one spot rather than having to visit several different websites.
