A number of years ago, I was preaching in a village in Vanuatu when a witch doctor came to announce curses upon those gathered. He came with words because beings in the spirit realm are released by words. Satan seems to need a person or people, to invoke the words of a curse upon people before evil spirits are able to work their evil. For this reason, the heathen king Balak invited Balaam the prophet to curse Israel. (Numbers 22. 15) The principle holds true in Gods kingdom too, so when we agree with God words in prayer, Gods Spirit is able to move! Words are an instrument of the spirit realm and both the kingdom of God and the kingdom of darkness are released through words. The words of the apostles or prophets reached into the unseen realm, binding evil or releasing the miracles of God. Israel shouted the words of faith at Jericho and the Spirit was released to move. The words we speak today can bring Gods “planned tomorrow” toward us. Words of unbelief can frustrate and even deny the good plans of God for our life.
Friend, How much of what God planned to bring into our lives, has been bound up in the heavens by the words we have said or not said. Ezekiel had to speak to the bones before the Spirit could move. So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and suddenly a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to bone. (Eze 37:7) Somebody has to declare what God wants to do in your life. It probably needs to be you! Start prophesying now.
