Speak the Word Only (Evsopi.com)

Speak The Word Only — Prophet Tony Mathias

Matthew 8: 5-13. When Jesus entered Capernaum, a Centurion [Roman Officer] pleaded with him saying, “Lord, my servant at home is paralyzed and in great pain.” Jesus said: “I will come and heal him.”

The Centurion answered: “Lord, I am not worthy that you should come to my house; only Speak the Word from where you are and my servant will be healed.”

“I know this because I am under the authority of my superior officers, and I have authority over my soldiers. I only need to say, ‘Go,’ and they go, or ‘Come,’ and they come. And if I say to my slaves, ‘Do this,’ they do it.” When Jesus heard this, he was amazed. Turning to those who followed him, he said, “I tell you the truth, I haven’t seen faith like this in all of Israel!

Jesus said unto the centurion, “Go back home. Because you believed, it has happened.” And the young servant was healed that same hour.

Few have such great faith as that centurion!

Although Jesus was willing to go to the man’s house, the centurion had so much faith that he said, “You don’t have to come. All that you need to do is Speak the Word and my servant will be healed instantly.” Seeing such faith, Jesus spoke the Word and his servant was healed instantly!

All Jesus has to do is ‘Speak the Word’ today. Do you believe He is going to speak the word to you and heal you or minister to your need? Do you want to hear His voice? Do you want to him say, “It is done?”

The Roman Officer understood that when he himself issued an order it was obeyed. Likewise Christ could simply give a command, being the Son of God in authority, and sickness would flee! Therefore Jesus highly praised the centurion and said He had not found such faith in all of Israel.

If you believe right now, that Jesus has ‘Spoken the Word,’ and that is enough, you will be healed, or your loved one will be healed. The cancer will drop off. The tumor will vanish. Heart trouble, epilepsy, cataracts and whatever will go! You can be made completely whole!

Just say, “Lord Speak the Word!”

A man lay helplessly for thirty-eight long years beside the pool of Bethesda (John 5).

The story is recorded in the Bible that a certain season, an angel went down stirred up the waters [God’s method of healing]. The first one to go into the water at that time was healed.

Jesus one day went to this pool where many maimed, crippled, sick people were awaiting the angel to stir up the waters. Jesus saw this man lying there on his bed. He asked him whether he wanted to be healed. Jesus was ready to ‘Speak the Word’ and heal him!

The man reasoned out why he could not be healed and that was because someone else always stepped into the water before him. So he waited beside the pool for thirty-eight long years, trying to find a way to get in. And now he didn’t realize that it was Jesus who stood by his side who could heal him with a word! He failed to recognize God’s method of bringing him healing.

Thousands today don’t recognize who Jesus is when He stands at their side, waiting to speak the word and set them free!

Some people; have their eyes on a preacher [rather than what he has], on an anointed handkerchief [instead of the anointing on it]. They have not fixed their eyes on Jesus and his Word. They go back discouraged, broken-hearted, because they feel they just can’t be healed!

Jesus was standing at the pool, waiting and wanting to speak the word to make that man whole. Do you know what happened? – Jesus just spoke a few words.

He said, “Rise, take up your bed and walk!” – Immediately, the man was healed!

He picked the bed on which he lay for thirty-eight years, and ran with it. “Do you want to be healed & blessed?” – Jesus waits to ‘Speak the Word!’ You can be healed right now! All you have to do is invite Jesus to ‘Speak the Word!’ –
Say, “Jesus, speak the word only!” Believe Him and rest on His Word! – “We who have believed do enter into rest.” (Hebrews 4:3).

Just as He spoke the word to the centurion’s servant, and to the paralytic beside the pool, He will speak the word right now that will make you whole. Do you believe it?

God has many ways to speak. He speaks through people like He spoke through Elijah the prophet to the poor woman of Zarepath and delivered her during the time of great famine. [1 Kings 17]. She believed and obeyed what he told her to do and was greatly blessed.

God also speaks to us in a still small voice deep within us. He speaks to us when we are reading his Word.

God speaks in a still small voice. (1 Kings 19:12). We hear it with something inside us something like a radio receiving set on the inside receives the message directly from God.

He sometimes speaks audibly as He did to Moses, Joshua, Aaron and Miriam.

1 Kings 17:15, God spoke through Elijah. It was Elijah’s lips, it was his voice, but it was God speaking through his voice, and “Elijah was a man subject to like passions as we are . . .” (James 5:17).

God still speaks through His ministers today. Every one of you can hear his voice now. And God will do mighty things for you!

I’ll tell you what makes Jesus speak the word of healing today. I pray; you pray; we agree, without doubting, and God in heaven forms the third angle of the triangle! When two of us agree as touching anything, Jesus speaks the word and says, “It is done!” Jesus says, in the Bible, “Whatsoever ye bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 18:18). But it takes two of us in harmony with real faith, without doubt to move God so He will say, “It is done!”

There was one little woman in A. A. Allen’s meeting who had an arm six inches shorter than the other. She looked up to heaven and said, “Jesus, speak the word only, and this short arm of mine will grow and both my arms will be of the same length!” She believed as she prayed! Suddenly, she had an impression to bend down and touch the ground. When she obeyed, that short arm was lengthened. She knew Jesus had ‘Spoken the Word!’

This woman came running to give her testimony. As soon as she finished, another woman ran to the platform. In her hand was an open safety pin, rusty, and sharp as a needle. She said to A. A. Allen, “While you were preaching, God gave me faith to believe for a miracle. More than a week ago, I swallowed this safety pin. I have been in pain all week. While you were preaching, I could feel it there in my stomach. I began to say to Jesus, “Speak the word only.” I felt it move up into my throat. I kept praying. It moved up and up. At last, it was in my mouth!”

Her prayer to God had been, “Speak the Word Only!” God heard, and spoke! –
He will speak the word for you today!

  • He spoke the word for the centurion’s servant!
  • He spoke the word for the man at the pool of Bethesda!
  • He spoke the word for the starving widow.

He is speaking the word for men and women like you today, every day!

All you have to do say to Him, “Speak the Word Only!” His word, spoken will heal you, your son, daughter, husband, wife, old white-haired mother, though they be a thousand miles away from you. – Do you believe it?

In His word there is life and healing. “Surely He bore our grief, and carried our sorrows . . .” (Isaiah 53:4).

“Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.” (Matthew 8:17).

“He was wounded for our transgressions . . . And with His stripes we are healed!” (Isaiah 53:5).

That is God’s Word!

If Jesus says you are healed, you are healed! – Believe what He says!

Raise your hand toward heaven now, and tell Him you believe IT IS DONE!

Health, healing, deliverance, or a miracle can be yours, right now!

The Rudder Of Life — Prophet Tony Mathias

shiprudder“Think of a ship: big as it is and driven by such strong winds, it can be steered by a very small rudder, and it goes wherever the pilot wants it to go. So it is with the tongue: small as it is, it can boast about great things.’” James 3:4-5

When a ship sets sail, the captain plots out its course makes adjustments to ensure it is moving in the predetermined destination and steers it steadily towards it, checking from time to time, adjusting the helm to go around storms, navigate currents and so on, focused at his destination rather than the situation at hand. If he keeps changing course repeatedly, he may go around in circles getting nowhere.

In the same way, we can arrive at our desired goals when we line up our thoughts, words, actions and habits, towards our God-given destination. We need to cultivate good habits that keep us on the right course and discard haphazard ways. For example, people speak positively expecting good things to happen then negate the same when confronted with stormy situations. They lose track of their destination and run around in circles like a footballer who has no goalpost. They forget they have the power to turn their lives around the storm and pass through into the sunshine.
Your mouth is the rudder of your life. Life and death are in the power of the tongue Proverbs 18:21. We give birth to what we speak consistently – good or bad life or death.

God has given you the power to declare and decree life in your situation even though you may be in dire situations. Make positive vocal faith declarations decree and declare in line with His Word! As you continue to speak the blessing and keep the ship of your life on steady-course, storm clouds will speedily exit. Decrees and declarations are powerful prayers to manifest heaven on earth.

Job 22:28 – “You will also declare a thing and it will be established for you; so light will shine on your ways”
Let us choose to be an optimist rather than a pessimist, asking God for help to do what He called us to do; for wisdom and understanding to complete our assigned work successfully and be a blessing to our world; when we speak God’s Word that Word does not return void. Declare we are a royal priesthood, that we are blessed and highly favored because we belong to Him. 1 Peter 2:9

We as believers need to reign in life as kings manifesting our kingly anointing by decreeing blessings over our spouses, children, ministry, business and every other realm of life. In the beginning, God created the heavens by the word of His mouth Psalms 33:6. He spoke forth what He had seen in His mind and they came into existence – the earth, heavenly bodies, animals, vegetation, and humans.

As He is so are we in this world, co-creators 1 John 4:17. Our tongue is the implement of creation and creativity. “Death and life are in the power of the tongue and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21. We can choose to use your tongue to bring life not death, to bless and not curse. 1 John 4:17. When you bless, blessings will return. When you curse, curses will return. Have you ever thought of the magnitude of returns? Luke 6:38. Therefore be cautious and choose to bless!

Let us consider two words of importance: Declare and Decree.decreeanddeclare

Declare in the natural realm would mean show, reveal, make known, announce openly or officially, account for. For example: – a customs officer asking an international traveler what he is carrying: “Do you have anything to declare?”
In the spiritual sense declarations spoken into the atmosphere, make known what we already possess. For example, we can declare our righteousness, salvation…

Decree in the natural realm would mean to give an official order – a criminal sentenced to prison cannot ignore that sentence backed by the authority of the court order.

Decrees In the spiritual sense can cause a manifestation of supernatural truths in the natural realm. They manifest heaven on earth – fulfilling Matthew 6:10. ‘Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.’

For example, we could decree:

  • Healing when we are sick 1 Peter 2:24.
  • Provision and abundance when we lack Philippians 4:19.
  • Peace in turmoil Philippians 4:7.

When we decree in faith, God’s provision and blessings for us, peace and unity in our family and so on, any opposition would be quelled and have no effect on the same. Decreeing our own vision can create confusion but decreeing His will, will establish His purpose in our lives without creating confusion. It is of great importance to orally decree with scriptures, by doing so God’s purposes are released into our lives without creating confusion. The Israelites missed the Promised Land the Jews missed their Messiah by working contrary to His will.
Believe in the Lord your God and you will be established…2 Chronicles 20:20.

When we decree, “I am blessed” in line with Psalms 112:1, we are established in the blessing, separated, cut off from the enemy’s plans against it which suffer destruction.

When we decree, “My children are strong and full of integrity” in line with Psalms 112:2 they are established in strength and integrity, separated, cut off from their weakness, dishonesty and unrighteousness.

When we decree, “My home overflows with wealth” in line with Psalms 112:3, we are established in wealth, separated cut off from lack and poverty and those spirits executing the same are destroyed.

When we decree, we release God’s blessings, establish His will, destroy the enemy’s plans, bring judgment on the enemy, have power to alter our destiny Proverbs 13:3; Hosea 8:7

Remember decree is to issue an order, declare is to show. The tongue is the rudder!

So begin to decree and declare today!

This Little Light Of Mine, I’m Going To Let It Shine — Prophet Tony Mathias


childdreamA little child had a vivid but frightful dream one night. She woke up weeping. Mama! Mama! Mama! It is very dark. The mother put on the lights and picked her up. Still, she cried out – it is very dark! Her mother consoled her and told her it was only a dream. She then asked her to explain herself – The little child said that she was playing in the garden in bright sunlight.

Suddenly she was overshadowed with a very large dark cloud that covered the sunlight totally. Her mother encouraged her with a song to let the light of Jesus shine through her and dispel the darkness.

…This little light of mine I’m going to let it shine…”

This world is in darkness brought by the Prince of darkness, the evil one who comes to kill, steal and destroy John 10 – sin, sickness, spiritual death, demonic activity negative thinking… in the neighborhood, families, and churches as well.

Those that are sensitive in the spirit can sense heaviness or lightness in the atmosphere amidst people or homes. People do carry that kind of atmosphere – negative, positive or in-between. Homes, towns, villages, cities carry atmospheres.

A Church can be vibrant or passive – depending on the atmosphere the pastor and congregation carry. No spray, scent, orderliness, screen exhibits or even thought-provoking sermons or organization can change the spiritual atmosphere – but there is good news. Dull heavy atmospheres can be changed! As a glory carrier, you can bring in the holy presence of God – that changes lives and atmospheres.

How will you do that?
Isaiah 60:1 “Arise shine for your light has come!” – How will you let the light of God within you shine? – Be a moving light not static!

Encourage, exhort, comfort and build.
preach-the-gospel
Preach the gospel the good news to all around at every opportunity you get, it will change the atmosphere. Romans 1:16; John 6:63 – God is light and in Him there is no darkness at all.. You were once darkness, now you are light…Live as children of light.’ Ephesians 5:8.

You have power to turn on the light.

Why sit in darkness? – You have power to turn on the light and see darkness flee. Be conscious of God’s presence all the time with you –read & speak the word. Be an oracle, a spokesman for God.

Jesus is the light and the Word of God is light. You are a child of the light…When you focus on Jesus and His Word, darkness will flee.
The city of Samaria, bound in deception and sorcery, heard the Gospel and there was joy in the city. Acts 8:8

Decree prophetic words of blessing – Many love to be doomsday prophets, they like to prophesy a critical atmosphere instead of an encouraging atmosphere. They say they have discerning of spirits. But all you find is a ‘fault-finding-ministry.’ The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.’ Proverbs 18:21 – You create your atmosphere with your words – Be a New Testament Prophet!

You need to decree prophetic life-giving words that would transform the atmosphere. Declare what the Lord is doing instead of what the enemy is doing.

Genesis 1 tells us that the earth atmosphere was dark and empty. God then spoke a ‘let there be’ word, the atmosphere changed and there was – Light and Life.

Jesus said, ‘The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’ John 10:10. When we speak in agreement with what Father is speaking, creative power is released to fulfill His plans. No word from God will ever fail. Luke 1:37

There will be a shift in the atmosphere when we declare the goodness and purposes of God. When we decree blessing over people, situations and over ourselves there will be a life-giving impact. Even in the natural watch how situations change when you decree blessings on someone saying – You are blessed and highly favored; May you experience a big breakthrough in your business and so on. You need to declare what the Lord is doing instead of what the enemy is doing

We ought to learn to pray with praise and thanksgiving 1 Thessalonians 5:17; Philippians 4:6
Let the people praise thee O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase and God even our own God shall bless us…and all the ends of the earth shall fear Him. Psalms 67:5-7

What will you do?
You can shift the atmosphere from darkness to light so that there is joy in the world around you. All you have to do is…‘‘This little light of mine I’m going to let it shine…”

Let Us Pray
Father may I be a prophetic voice to the Church and to the Nations declaring your goodness and purposes, prophesying ‘atmosphere–transforming’ life changing words. May I let Your light shine through me that people may see the good works I do and praise and glorify You! In Jesus’ Name!

Be Blessed!

He has delivered me and yet shall deliver me and preserve me. He that is in me is greater than he that is in the world. The Lord is my strength and deliverance.

The Eternal God is my refuge and underneath are his everlasting arms. No weapon that is fashioned against me will prevail. Nothing shall hurt me. God has not given me a spirit of fear but of love power and self-control. I make sure to meditate and obey his Word for He said that I would be like a tree planted by rivers of water that brings fruit in season and whatever I did would.
