PASTOR JOSEPH PRINCE 

DR. CREFLO DOLLAR


Hello beloveds, I’m glad you found your way here today because I have something really important to show you.

 

Today I watched a TV pastor show by several scriptures that Jesus has all authority and power in heaven and earth, and that He gave it to us.  He said that the enemy wants to keep us in spiritual ignorance and sleep, so that we don’t open our mouths and engage him in spiritual warfare. 

 

In other words, we’re not effectively changing anything in our lives and our families are suffering.  We’re struggling, we’re subject to sicknesses that are not God’s will for us.

 

Those of us who are saved are out from under the curse and all that it brings.  Praise God!  But how do we get that power?  How can we pray over someone and KNOW that they are well, and see them get up from their bed, like Jesus did?

 

Pastor Prince said that we have to change our understanding of our victory.  We are not fighting FOR victory, but FROM a position of victory.  He said we must remember that all the battles were won at the cross.  Everything we face was decided at the cross.  Jesus defeated Satan once and for all at the cross. 

 

“(Colossians 2:15, Romans 8:37)   Your part is to enforce the victory by simply standing your ground, which is victory ground. In other words, you “fight” from victory ground by standing. You don’t fight for victory.”

 

God does not need us to go into battle FOR Him, but to acknowledge the power and will of God in what Christ has done at the cross.  To speak out His words and apply them.  It’s up to Jesus’ name and the power in it to work the miracles.

 

(I think what made these messages so powerful for me today was that I had started to get into fear last night when one of my sisters was telling me about government plans and end time distresses.  I began to worry about how I could stay with my children and protect them if we're called up to give our testimony and be martyred.   The words the preacher put on the TV screen were that God was with me, and He had not planned for ONE defeat for me.  NEVER.  We will be protected, God will be with us.  We look to Him completely and are SAFE in Jesus!  HUGS)

 

Until we really have an understanding that we ARE victors not victims, and that the enemy has NO power over us, we won’t see the people raised from the dead and healed by our prayers.  We’ll be allowing Satan to slide by again and inflict his misery on the world.

 

It is not BECAUSE of us that someone is healed, (whether we said the right words or had enough faith), but THROUGH us and our obedience to use the name of Jesus and to go ahead and pray – then His power is released and will come to pass.

 

Don’t leave the door open in your mind or heart for doubt to set in.  Don’t allow a possibility of failure to occur.  God’s plan does not include ONE SINGLE DEFEAT in our lives!  His plan is 100% effective prayer, from 100% obedient believers who ACT on their faith in the name of Jesus.

 

Don’t let the word “obedient” stop you in your tracks.  The enemy will tell you that you are not worthy, you are not saved, your prayers won’t be answered because you are not perfect, and that you still do some things in error.

 

Your response to his whispers of defeat is to be “get thee behind me Satan, for it is written, not by my power but by God’s!  Jesus went to the cross and defeated you and all that you try to bring against me.  I am forgiven completely, once and for all.  I have and AM the righteousness of God through Christ’s restoration at the cross.  I am clean and given power and authority to use Jesus’ name and I use it against you now!  Be quiet!  Leave me!  I am doing God’s work!”

 

God’s will is for every single believer to be healed and living a healthy, vibrant, robust life!  His will is for every believer to have all of their needs met and to have some left over to share, so that everyone is comforted and provided for.  His will is for every believer’s mind to be clear, strong and powerful. 

 

He said no weapon formed against us will prosper; we are blessed when we come in and blessed when we go out.  Nothing will happen to us today that God has not already prepared for and declared victorious!  Every circumstance will bring glory to God and a testimony in our “toolbox” to tell the world.

 

Our obedience is to just DO what God said.  Lay hands on the sick.  Go ahead and do it!  Declare your finances healed in Jesus’ name!  Go ahead and LIVE as if your bank account is full and your bills paid, and as the money comes in to accomplish that goal, apply the money to each bill until they are gone.  God will also supernaturally eliminate your bills and change the circumstances of your debts.  Then don’t go and get any more.

 

We need to be coming out from under the dependence on the world’s systems because they are failing and this is part of the plan.  The enemy believes it’s HIS plan, and his purpose is to steal, kill and destroy.  God knows it’s HIS plan, to get us leaning completely on Him as He intended from the beginning.

 

We are mistaken when we say “God helps those who help themselves” or “He expects us to do what we can and anything we can’t do, He’ll take over”!

 

These are horrible statements!  God has declared and pleaded with mankind all through the ages that HE is the God who provides for us, teaches us and heals us.  It is NOT by our power and we are to LEAN on Him, RELY on Him, TRUST in Him.

 

Not one time did God say, get out there and do for yourselves!  NO!  (In the Garden of Eden, God told man to manage what He put there.  The plants were there and already producing, we only needed to keep things in their place and orderly.)

 

He placed things in our possession to profit from!  He taught man how to prosper in whatever situation they were in.  He delights in taking nothing and turning it into the highest.

 

Work itself is not evil, we all have to lift the fork to our mouths to put food in there, but holding work as an ideal, titles and education or government checks or whatever it is you’re putting your faith in to pay the next bill that is due, THAT is where we have our problem.

 

When we hear of a need or crisis, we all want to jump in and DO something.  We think thoughts like “I have to go here and do this and do that.”  “I have to” is the problem.

 

Instead, wait on the Lord and see what He has to say.  Go to Him in prayer first and wait to take action.  Feel in your heart if your intended action will cause peace and calm in your heart, or if you feel uneasy and a bit “scratchy” about it in the chest area.

 

If you feel anything other than peace, WAIT on the Lord.  Get busy praising Him and thanking Him for wisdom and guidance and the solution to your problem.

 

Most of all, feel the boldness of the power and authority of God in you.  Read these scriptures until you know them to be the truth for YOU.

 

John 6:28

28 They then said, What are we to do, that we may [habitually] be working the works of God? [What are we to do to carry out what God requires?]

29 Jesus replied, This is the work (service) that God asks of you: that you believe in the One Whom He has sent [that you cleave to, trust, rely on, and have faith in His Messenger].

 

Matthew 28:18

18 Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.

 

Ephesians 1:19-23

19 And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power IN and FOR US who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength,

20 Which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His [own] right hand in the heavenly [places],

21 Far above all rule and authority and power and dominion and every name that is named [above every title that can be conferred], not only in this age and in this world, but also in the age and the world which are to come.

22 And He has put all things under His feet and has appointed Him the universal and supreme Head of the church [a headship exercised throughout the church],

23 Which is His body, the fullness of Him Who fills all in all [for in that body lives the full measure of Him Who makes everything complete, and Who fills everything everywhere with Himself].

 

Romans 16:20,

20 And the God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) be with you.   (Grace is the unmerited, undeserving favor of God and the POWER that works miracles.)

 

John 12:31

31 Now the judgment (crisis) of this world is coming on [sentence is now being passed on this world]. Now the ruler (evil genius, prince) of this world shall be cast out (expelled).

 

Luke 10:19

19 Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.

 

Luke 10:22

22 All things have been given over into My power by My Father; and no one knows Who the Son is except the Father, or Who the Father is except the Son and anyone to whom the Son may choose to reveal and make Him known.

 

John 6:28

27… the Son of Man will give (furnish) you that, for God the Father has authorized and certified Him and put His seal of endorsement upon Him.

 

Romans 13:11, 12

11 Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah).

12 The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armor of light.

 

The Devil is a liar and the father of all lies.  He never had power or control over the earth, and Jesus knew it!  In this scripture he tempts Jesus in the wilderness after His 40 day fast:

 

Luke 4:6-7

6 And he (Satan) said to Him, To You I will give all this power and authority and their glory (all their magnificence, excellence, preeminence, dignity, and grace), for it has been turned over to me, and I give it to whomever I will.

7 Therefore if You will do homage to and worship me [just once], it shall all be Yours.

 

You see what Jesus has to say about Satan:

 

John 8:44

44 You are of your father, the devil, and it is your will to practice the lusts and gratify the desires [which are characteristic] of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a falsehood, he speaks what is natural to him, for he is a liar [himself] and the father of lies and of all that is false.

 

There is only ONE power in the universe and it belongs to God: 

 

Romans 13:1

1 Let every person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment.

 

The earth was not given to Satan, but still belongs to the Lord:

 

Psalms 24:1

1 The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness of it, the world and they who dwell in it.

 

Satan wants us to believe that he has power over us, and that we have none over him!  His strategies are to keep us spiritually asleep, ignorant of God’s word, believing we are defeated or weak or somehow subject to him because of our past sins.  (This is why it is so important to understand that Jesus’ work on the cross brought us forever, once and for all forgiveness, we are clean and our sins are NO LONGER imputed to us because God put them on His son.  It can’t be done again, our Lord will NOT go back to the cross, and if you do something wrong today after being saved, you are NOT under the law or the curse.  You are STILL forgiven!!)

 

Satan will do what he can to keep our mouths shut so that we do not proclaim God’s word and engage him in spiritual warfare, but the truth is, we have been given power to our purpose, authority to act, equipped for battle, prepared with armor that protects us, and if that isn’t enough, Jesus said He will be with us - behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age.  (Matthew 28:20)

 

Notice the explanations of His words in parenthesis?  He is with us PERPETUALLY, (that means continuously and forever), UNIFORMLY, (without break or glitch), TO THE END OF THE AGE!  All the way through the end times and the tribulation and everything that is to come!

 

Does that include when your rent comes due?  YES!  Does that include when a germ tries to take you down, or a car comes careening around a corner aimed at taking out your life?  YES!

 

And what are we supposed to be doing?  What are Jesus’ instructions?

 

John 6:28, 29

27 Stop toiling and doing and producing for the food that perishes and decomposes [in the using], but strive and work and produce rather for the [lasting] food which endures [continually] unto life eternal; the Son of Man will give (furnish) you that…

29 Jesus replied, This is the work (service) that God asks of you: that you believe in the One Whom He has sent [that you cleave to, trust, rely on, and have faith in His Messenger].

 

 

Romans 13:1, 11, 12

1 Let every person be loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment.

11 Besides this you know what [a critical] hour this is, how it is high time now for you to wake up out of your sleep (rouse to reality). For salvation (final deliverance) is nearer to us now than when we first believed (adhered to, trusted in, and relied on Christ, the Messiah).

12 The night is far gone and the day is almost here. Let us then drop (fling away) the works and deeds of darkness and put on the [full] armor of light.

 

Matthew 28:19

19 Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be).

 

He said to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the sick and those in prisons, to be kind to strangers, and whatever we do, do it cheerfully as unto the Lord, and inasmuch as you do it unto the least of mankind, you do it unto Him.

 

Forgiveness is a major part of receiving from God, because to receive we have to be LIKE Him, and there is no evil in Him.  Not forgiving someone else their trespasses or stupidity is accusing ourselves of the same thing because we were all guilty.  It can sentence you to making the same mistake for a lesson in the future.  It also denies Jesus’ work on the cross, because in that work was ALL forgiveness found.  If you withhold it from someone else, you deny the power of what Jesus did.

 

Observe communion (The Lord’s Supper), being careful to understand the bread represents His body that was broken for us, to obtain our healing, and the blood represents His blood shed for the forgiveness of our sins.  This is a holy gift and something we do to acknowledge and commemorate and partake of His divine nature (“…as He is in the world, so are we…”).

 

Live simply, walk humbly before the Lord, owe no man anything, lean completely upon the saving grace and provisions of God our Father and His Son who intercedes for us daily.  Depend on God to take care of you.  Don’t put your faith or trust in your paycheck, or your own ability to work or to find solutions to your problems. 

 

One of the enemy’s lies has been that God expects you to do what you can.  This is a twist on His word.  God NEVER said that to us.  He repeatedly says to rely on, trust in, lean on Him!  He declared over and over that HE is our healer and our provider.  He says it is HE who prospers us, and that if we seek Him and His righteousness first, He will make sure we have all the other things that man needs.

 

He said to meet with other like-minded believers to discuss the word and pray together, worship together and become as the BODY of Christ, to help others and alleviate suffering.  (And He did not say how often to meet, where you should meet or how many people had to be there.) 

 

“Where two or more are gathered, there will I be also…”  (You can have church every time you meet your neighbor over the back fence and talk about God’s goodness and pray together!)

 

It is a good thing though to belong to a body of believers and to be under the authority of God through the pastor, doing your part and being provided for from the general wealth of all members.

 

He did not say, send the youth to Disney World and build cathedrals in my name, or organize protests in front of abortion clinics.  He did not say to keep a smoldering grudge against anyone of another religious belief, or that yours is the only right way of thinking. 

 

In fact He said our ways are not His ways and our thoughts are not His thoughts, so be careful that you don’t accuse or gossip about someone else, because you may be accusing a fellow believer, or someone who will soon be one with us in Christ’s body.

 

Instead, we are to draw men to Him by allowing the Holy Spirit to work through us in love and peace.  Forgive everyone who has done anything against us, or who even does something we consider stupid!  Forgive them, don’t mention it again.

 

In closing, the point is – STAND on the word and what you have asked for in Jesus’ name.  It IS coming!  The power is real.  Shift your consciousness from one of begging or hoping for your prayers to be answered, to one of KNOWING and DEPENDING on the word of God.

 

 

 






To God be the praise and glory!  In Jesus’ name I send out this teaching and ask that the Word bless and heal all who read or hear it.

God bless you all.
