I always wondered what it meant to reach up and grab Gods promises, and God answered me:
The other day I was reading the book of Genesis, and I noticed that before God placed man upon the earth, everything we needed was here: water, food, animals, and etc., (genesis 1). The Bible goes on to say that before it even rained, all the fruits were here with the seed in it (genesis 2:5). God then reminded me that it’s like wise with heaven, before we get to heaven, our mansions are already completed (John 14:2,3). God then dropped in my spirit: Just like everything you pray for is already there for you, so thank me. So I asked why is it important to thank you before hand? (I like to know why it’s important to do things, the effects of us not doing something, or doing something). This is how god broke it down to me: whenever a person says thank you, it’s a indicator that something was ALREADY done for them, when a person says thank you it’s a indicator that they received something. Therefore when we thank god in advance, we receive what he did at the cross. When the devil places symptoms and lies upon ppl (pains, depression, & etc.,) the symptom of it is like they have it, because they can feel it, and see it. Yet when we thank God for what he did for us, it over rides / removes the lies of the devil BECAUSE SCRIPTURE CANT BE BROKEN, god doesn’t break his promises! (John 10:35) When we thank for what he’s done, our thanks to him literally causes us to TRIUMP over the enemy lies. How? GOD WORD IS ESTABLISHED IN HEAVEN FOREVER (psalms 119:89). GOD IS NOT A MAN THAT HE SHOULD LIE (numbers 23:19). God is faithful that promised! (Hebrews 10:23). Therefore, Don’t believe the devil lies. YOU ARE FREE FROM EVERY LIE OF THE ENEMY RATHER ITS SICKNESSES, MARRIAGE ISSUES, FINANCIAL ISSUES & etc., How? BECAUSE OF GODS WORD. For sickness the word says by Jesus stripes, we are healed. For your marriage the word says what god has joined, let no man separate. For your finances the word says wealth and riches is in our house. (Isaiah 53:5, mark 10:9, psalms 112:3).
Know that when Jesus died on the cross, you gained a legal right to every promise in the Bible. The reason for sicknesses, poverty & etc., is sin, yet the blood of Jesus blots out every ordinance against us (Colossians 2:14), which gives us a legal right to gods promises. Therefore receive your healing and deliverance by thanking the Lord in advance. Thank God in advance for what your asking him for!!! THATS HOW YOU REACH OUT AND GRAB HIS PROMISES!!! Your thanks is a indicator that you receive what he gave you at the cross. ***Repent, Jesus is coming*** Repent means to turn from your ways, and turn to the ways of God. It means to have a change of heart, it means to have a desire in your heart to stop doing what you want to do, and do what god wants you to do. THIS MESSAGE IS FOR ANYONE SEEKING GOD. DONT let the devil condemn you and make you feel as if some of the promises of god don’t apply to you because you just stumbled. Instead, confess that sin and know that god is faithful and just to forgive you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness. In other words God will help you to stop doing the wrong thing, so that you submit to his word. (1 John 1:9).
