Tapping Into God's Power
by Angeline Williams


This is the faith of our father Abraham. He had to begin calling himself the father of many nations (calling those things which be not as though they were) long before his son Isaac was ever conceived in the womb of Sarah. There simply is no separating the power of the Holy Spirit from the Spoken Word of God!


The Holy Spirit will not manifest the unspoken Word of God for anybody...not even God the Father! The Holy Spirit would still be brooding over the face of the waters today waiting for the spoken words “Let there be light”! The Holy Spirit is the "manifester!" Jesus called the Holy Spirit the "finger of God" (Luke 11:20) after He had cast out a devil.


If people could just get a revelation that He only manifests the Spoken Word of God, to the point that they would actually begin speaking the Word of God, they would soon find that they had finally tapped into the Power of God!


It was as Abraham confessed the "promise" that the Holy Spirit began changing Abraham and Sarah's bodies at the molecular level, causing sufficient change that Sarah actually began ovulating again (she was long past menopause) and causing sufficient change in Abraham that he became virile again. But if Abraham had not been obedient to "speak the promise" as if it were already so in his life ("I am the father of many nations") the Holy Spirit would never have manifested those changes ... God's will or not! The number one way that the Holy Spirit works in the earth is ...He manifests the spoken Word!


So, no matter what problems we are faced with: health, marital, financial, children, etc., etc., "Find two or three promises from the Word of God that cover your case. Begin worshipping God for these promises and begin saying them out of your mouth as if they were already manifested in your life. Quit speaking the negative circumstances, completely! Keep saying about yourself what the Word says about you. The Holy Spirit will manifest those promises in your life."


That's it! Simple! Too simple for most people to accept! Yet it is the power of God! It works every time for those that will do it! There are no exceptions! There are no difficulties that are too hard for the Holy Spirit! There are no special cases! This always works! Period! Even those that "try it" usually fail because they become "weary in well doing" and quit before the manifestation comes. But it will always come if they do not. It is through faith and patience that we possess the promises.

The reference scripture says that His word does not return to Him void! The only persons that need to hear these confessions are us and God the Holy Ghost! Why? Because the Holy Spirit manifests the Spoken Word that He hears coming out of our mouths! He is waiting to hear the spoken Word! He will not act to manifest the word until he hears the Word spoken!


That's the secret! Speak the Word as if it were already, present tense, truth in your life! The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Truth! He will manifest the truth in your life if you do! He will not if you don't! Again, too simple for most folks. God made it too easy! Most people scoff at its simplicity. Yet God designed it to be simple on purpose so that everybody would be able to do it. It applies to everything; depression, doubt, fear, rebellious children, prosperity, marriage, healing, etc., etc.


According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. (2 Pet 1:3-4)

This scripture is saying that by these great and precious promises of God we partake of everything that He has given us pertaining unto life and godliness! Hallelujah! Glory to God! We don't have to obtain things the world's way, which is governed by lust, but we can receive everything directly from our Father's hand by partaking of these exceeding great and precious promises! We are "in the world" but not "of the world." We have a different source than the world has.

Here is another important thing we concerning the confession of God's Word: your confession before god and your confession before people must be the same! It does absolutely no good to spend time worshipping God by confessing His Word over a situation and then continually say exactly the opposite to your friends. Remember what James said, a double minded man is unstable in all his ways (James 1:8).


You have to once and for all make up your mind. Is God's Word the truth in your life, or are the present circumstances the truth in your life? Which is it? On what are you going to make your stand? Circumstances or God's Word? Once you choose God's Word then you never let your mouth speak circumstances contrary to what God has already said. This is very difficult on the flesh and because you are human you will sometimes stumble and say the wrong things when you set out to do this. Don't be discouraged. Simply repent and begin speaking again in line with the Word of God. Eventually it will become as natural to you as taking a drink of water. You won't even have to consciously think about it anymore, because you and the Word will have become "one."

Let me add one other thing. Time spent praying in other tongues helps shorten the "waiting" time for the manifestations of the promises. There are many, many reasons why this is so but for now let me just name one of them, which is contained in Romans 8:26Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”


Let me put it like this. While we are allowing the Holy Spirit to make "perfect intercession" for us He "fills in the gaps" where we are ignorant. For example, a person who was standing on God's promises for financial prosperity might not realize that there is someone he needs to forgive for a past wrong that was done to him. He might never, on his own, even think of it. But the Holy Spirit will know that he needs to forgive and will to pray that he needs to forgive. Then the Holy Spirit Himself will bring it to the man's mind that he needs to forgive that person. Then the man can forgive and that will be one more roadblock gone on his path to prosperity. See how that works? The Holy Spirit helps us "fill in the prayer gaps" because, quite frankly, we don't often know everything that needs to be prayed...but He does! Thank God for praying in other tongues!

Our weapons of warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. When we are equipped with Gods Word and His Spirit, we are empowered with the fuel that will cause a fire in your spirit that cannot be put out.
