Bottom line is that you get what you speak, that's it, period! Confess what you want not what you have. Speak this daily for starters, "I am blessed, highly favored, empowered to prosper, prospering, walking in divine health, blessed to be a blessing and I can't lose with the faith that I use."
To our unbeliever friends: the truth in this book applies to you, too! Believe it or not, regardless of your faith, religion, or lack thereof - you get what you speak.
In this outstanding book by author Charles Capps, you learn the importance of what comes out of your mouth. Are you blaming circumstances, others or fate for
your situation in life? Well, perhaps you better turn that finger inward and point at yourself.
If you are a Bible believer, than the words in Proverbs 18:21 should make you stand up and take notice. "Death an life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof." In other words, your own words are planting in the ground your future. Scary isn't it?
I don't suppose we like the ball to be put in our court when it has been so easy to blame everything else on our 'rotten luck', bad situations, and unfulfilled dreams.
After reading this book, we now have a new saying in my house and a new word maybe you would want to apply it as well and change your life forever.
"Just what are those little 'lippers' saying?"
If I can have what I say, I say I have only good things from now on. How about you?
ensnared by the words of your mouth,"...CA, Capps' quote in the book "you have bound me by the words of your own mouth" is truthfully stated in Proverbs 6:2 above. God made the statement, He is not denying His own omnipotence. However, God does give man FREE WILL and we can limit God's power in our lives by what we say and do if we don't follow His Word! As for Mark 11:22 "Have faith in God" if you have a KJV Bible look in the footnotes, the original translation from the Greek was actually "have the faith of God" or the God-kind of faith!... I have this footnote in my King James Bible I was astonished when I saw it! I would have never noticed it if I hadn't read a book by Kenneth Hagin. In summary, the book by Charles Capps is EXCELLENT and Biblical! Jesus said we get what we believe and what we say so be careful of believing in the negative!
I have been gleaning a new understanding about what the Bible is about and have had an amazing transformation- I was previously deceived (because of my not having the ears to hear) into believing in only a God outside- But "Don't you know that you are the temple of God". We are all brothers to Christ- we are like him and capable of doing "even greater things" we are man and God- Just like Christ- Christ is the light the way and the truth- I have come that you may have life and live it more abundantly- He is the light and truth- to show us who we are- we are made in His image- Just as the disciples were able to heal just like Christ and Peter was able to walk on the water until he doubted- "As a man thinketh so he is" is so plain and simple- God spoke and brought this world in existence- Words are powerful- and words need thoughts to be formed- We are using our words and thoughts to create everything in our lives- unfortunately we just accept pain and suffering as par for the course- a cross to be born- if only we would wake up out of our sleep/delusion and experience the life that Christ came to give us! We need to watch what we are thinking and saying- our very words are creating our lives- that is why Christ says in Philipians "things that are lovely...of good report ...think on these things..." And all the fruits of the spirit- all great things to be like.Read more ›
It always amazes me how someone can look you in the eye and tell you flat out that Jesus did not mean what He said in MK 11:23. Another reviewer stated that Jesus was only showing the power of faith in prayer. I agree that Jesus was certainly using an object lesson when referring to speaking to a mountain but if MK 11:23 did not mean exactly what it states, then Jesus' whole argument for faith in prayer falls apart in MK 11:24! It is precisely because of the truth Jesus expounded upon in MK 11:23 that makes MK 11:24 work! But then again, the pharisees always resented what Jesus said and we still have modern-day "pharisees" who will call you on the carpet any time your brand of theology differs from their own--which many times is simpy wrong.
As far as "name it and claim it" I will be the first to state that there have been abuses, but as long as what you "name" and "claim" is bounded by the scriptures, you can have it! Jesus promised that! But then again, maybe He didn't say what He meant like in MK 11:23...right?
Also, Jesus Himself stated that we are not to pray to Him: "...in that day, ye shall ask me NOTHING." So the other reviewer who brings up this aspect of Capp's teaching is either ignorant of scripture or has a doctrinal ax to grind.
Lastly, we do "create" with our words. And God can be bound--not because we are greater than He is but because He has bound Himself to His Word and only operates within the scope and parameters of His Word.Read more ›
