Why don't you quicken the dead!


Jesus is the way. The way God do things is through His Word. In the beginning God created by speaking His Word. Jesus healed, cast out the demons, raised the dead and called those things that were not into manifestation by speaking the word.

The way God make things happen is through Jesus, His Word. Yah’shua, Jesus, is the Word from the beginning.

How then do we exercise our restored, inherited authority in this world?

Through the Word!

Exactly the same Way God does. He lives in and through us. The same Power …

Abba Abba recently shared with me about physical, bodily healing that does not immediately manifest.

Remember that we touched on many truths about healing here, here, here and here.

I was reminded first of all by Abba about His unmerited favour, His Grace. During an early morning jog with Him He gave me Romans 4 upon a question I asked about the very subject. 

In my Spirit Filled Bible I scribbled in the side-lines at several places next to the verses of Romans 4 “Grace Understood”.

Paul explains through the old covenant examples of Abraham and David how righteousness is accounted to man outside of works (the law) and how the law (Messianic or any man-made law) renders Faith (God’s faith working in and through us) void and the promise made to no effect (verse 14). Accepting and exercising God’s Faith in our lives establishes Grace (Jesus) so that the promise might be sure (bebaios: stable, fast, stand firm, sure, trusty) in our lives (verse 16 and going on to verse 17) before (katenanti: in His stead here on earth – taken from the original Greek root word) Him whom he (Abraham) believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though [so that] they were.

How does God manifest?

He calls, using His Word, those things that are not, to be!

If healing is not there, He calls it into place!

If peace is not there, He calls it into being!

If Lazarus is not alive, He calls him to be alive!

Restoration, life, prosperity, harmony ... All these have been called into being from the cross. It lives inside of us. Ready to be received (lambano) by us and declared into being!

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2Co 5:17

Even where there is no hope, like in the case of Abraham - Rom 4:18 Who against hope [elpis: expectation, surety, sense, confidence] believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations, according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.

God does not dwell on the past. He does not look at the situation at hand and says; “Oh well, you know what? This is a little too big for Me to handle!”


In fact, He has already dealt with it completely on the cross! And now having restored our original purpose and being in Him, expects us to exercise our dominion rights and privileges!

Authentic Faith (Jesus) does not deny the problem at hand, but declares that what He did on the cross is by far, immeasurably greater than the obstacle.

When Paul in 1 Corinthians  2:9 quotes the prophecy of the prophet Isaiah that came wonderfully true in Jesus, our Father’s heart is revealed: But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

… and when the healing doesn't manifest?

It has to! It must!

We turn to James, the younger brother of Jesus.

James brilliantly explains our position in Jesus and in James 2:20 says: But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

James says that having exercised our faith in Jesus, we do what?

Works. No, not the works of the law. Instead. We do as if. We ergon: we do our business, we employ, we act with confidence, we do the very thing we spoke into existence.  

Is it not worthy of Yah’shua to declare: And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. Rev 21:5 

In this new season that we call 2015 in the western world, I bless you that you may ergon upon the things that you called into being – each and every good and perfect gift that Abba Abba blessed you with, that you may stand amazed at your own prosperity in Yah'shua!

Shalom, Shalom!
