Another great blog from my son, J. Daryl Chesser:
What good can a few words do? When we are suffering or worried or afraid, what help are words?
When the words come from our Father in heaven, the Creator and sustainer of all things, words can be very, very powerful.
Psalm 107:19-20 says,
Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, AND HE SAVED THEM FROM THEIR DISTRESS. HE SENT OUT HIS WORD AND HEALED THEM; he rescued them from the grave.
– you see, those simple words just encouraged you…he saved them and he healed them. But it is much more than just comfort
A poem or sonnet can bring solace or comfort. The lyrics of a song can build you up or encourage you. But the Words of the Lord God are nothing like the words of a poet or lyricist or philosopher.
The words of God, our Father in heaven, are actual CONTAINERS of His power and anointing! YES, the words are simply the way the power of God is transferred from person to person.
No one is saved without HEARING WORDS that God can save and heal. The Gospel, or Good News, is the message of God’s power and love to us through Christ Jesus and his finished work on the cross…and there is power to save anyone who hears those words about the Good News that God loves them.
When someone believes what he has heard about God and about his son Jesus, power is released from God to save and to heal and to redeem that person!!
You see in Genesis 1, that it was with words that God created the heavens and the earth. God spoke and the Holy Spirit opened those words, those CREATION containers, and began to build this universe that we now see and feel!
These creation containers (words) are highly encrypted by God himself. The encryption on these words can only be opened by the Holy Spirit. They are encrypted to keep evil men and quite frankly, stupid people, who seemingly have no purpose but their own way bellies and desires, from opening and using the power of God for evil.
Many ‘theologians’, Rabbi’s, Shaman’s, writers and ‘prophets’, throughout history have claimed to have broken the encryption…but alas, they lied.
There is one, and only one unbreakable and secure password that will unlock the encryption and allow the Holy Spirit to build the plan of God in your life. And that password is Jesus.
Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah, the son of God, is the power of God revealed to mankind! Once you receive Christ Jesus into your life, Jesus, this Eternal Password is embedded into your spirit so that it can never be hacked or stolen from you.
Do you remember what John said about Jesus?
John 1:1-5, 14
In the beginning WAS THE WORD, and the Word was with God, and THE WORD WAS GOD. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; WITHOUT HIM NOTHING WAS MADE THAT HAS BEEN MADE.
IN HIM WAS (and is) LIFE, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
THE WORD (Jesus Christ) BECAME FLESH AND DWELT AMONG US. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH.
How about Jesus himself, what did he say about the word?
The Spirit gives life; THE FLESH COUNTS FOR NOTHING.
THE WORDS I HAVE SPOKEN TO YOU – THEY ARE FULL OF THE SPIRIT AND LIFE.
– when you read the Psalms, or the Gospels, or the Old Testament, you are reading containers of the Encrypted POWER OF GOD, hidden from selfish and evil men, but REVEALED TO YOU BY THE HOLY SPIRIT BECAUSE OF FAITH IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
This encryption is not to hide it FROM YOU, but to KEEP IT FOR YOU WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS ALONE.
The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?”
He replied, “Because the knowledge of THE SECRETS OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN HAS BEEN GIVEN TO YOU, BUT NOT TO THEM.
Whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance.
Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them.
This is why I speak to them in parables:
“Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.”
In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah:
“You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.”
For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’
BUT BLESSED ARE YOUR EYES BECAUSE THEY SEE, AND YOUR EARS BECAUSE THEY HEAR.
For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.
– today, when you read a simple Psalm, or passage of scripture and are encouraged, it is much more than that. The Word is being unpacked in your spirit and the Words of Jesus are bringing life and healing and redemption.
You are literally doing what Jesus told Satan in his temptation…
“man shall not live by bread (natural) alone, but by EVERY WORD THAT PROCEEDS OUT OF THE MOUTH OF GOD.”
Eat up. Jesus Christ is the Word, He is the BREAD that comes down from the Father in Heaven, and it is God’s love that feeds you everyday with the True Life.
