God Honors All Y’all!

“Today, no matter where we are, we have a real spiritual connection with the Father in the garden of His delight wherein He supplies our sufficiency in Christ in us as He continues to deliver and honor us. He {you and me} shall call upon me {God}, and I will answer him: I will be with him in {or through} trouble; I will deliver him {from trouble}, and {I God will} honour him– Psalms 91:15. WOW – God honors us – what a rarefied privilege bestowed on those who call upon God!” ~LMJ~

He Sent His Word (The Expanded Version of He Sent His Word and Healed Them)

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

In the Gospels, there are many references to Jesus healing people. What empowered his ability to heal was his believing faith that released the power of God. When we receive God’s healing Word and discover Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, then unequivocally the vim of our believing faith will also aspire us up to the standards that God’s Word sets forth, as spiritual healing becomes ever more realized, administered, and enjoyed.

The Word of God has always been given to heal and mend the hearts and souls of believers. The Word of God is the greatest thing that has ever been given, yet sometimes the Word has been one of the most scorned, neglected, and rejected gifts that God, in love, has ever presented to humanity.

Psalm 107:20:
He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

I am reminded of the Centurion in the Gospel of Matthew 8:8 who said to Jesus, “speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed,” and his servant was indeed healed. If the Word of God was that powerful when the Psalms were written and still as powerful when Jesus was here, it only stands to reason that the Word of God sent to us through Christ is still as powerful as it ever was. Not only is the Word of God currently profitable for healing, but it also can “deliver us from all of our destructions.”

When we believe God’s Word, then the Word itself will begin producing positive results of deliverance. Whenever men and women decide to put their trust in God’s Word with a believing heart of expectation, he or she will begin receiving His blessings!

I Thessalonians 2:13:
For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that {do one thing, and one thing only,} believe.

When we receive the Word of God, believing that we are receiving the thoughts of His heart opened to us, then the Word itself begins working within us effectually i.e., energetically.

Psalm 107:21:
Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

This is a great verse of Scripture; let us compare it with the context of verse 20 (above). For God’s wonderful works to the children of men is their own deliverance from destructions, and Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness is man being thankful because “God sent His Word and healed them.” God has sent His Word, and His Word does indeed heal, as swiftly as His Word delivers us from destructions, for His Word is Jesus Christ!

Man on his own is sometimes a master of self-destruction by impeding his own hopes and dreams because he is not perfect. However, God’s healing Word is perfect, and when we follow the instructions within God’s Word with a believing heart, then true spiritual deliverance must follow.

Proverbs 3:5–8:
-5: Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
-6: In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
-7: Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear {respect} the LORD, and depart from evil.
-8: It shall be health {healing} to thy navel {meaning that healing can begin at the center of our lives}, and marrow {moisture} to thy bones.

The word marrow means moisture that nurtures the human structure of life. The word fear in verse 7 means to have respect, awe, and reverence for our heavenly Father, and acquiring this kind of respectful honor for God takes walking with Christ who is the Master Teacher and Physician of the spiritual heart and who heals the repentant sinner (Luke 5:31–32). We are often taught that we need to fear God, and that He will only care for those of us who are genuinely afraid of His power and judgments; however, this is simply a fallacy. God loves us and His desire for us is to respect and honor Him, as He has total admiration, honor, and respect for us in that He so loved the world that He gave (John 3:16)!

Psalms 91:15:
He {the believer} shall call upon me {our God}, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

In the Gospel of John 1:14 it reads, “And the Word was made flesh.” This refers to the birth and life of Jesus Christ, for he lived and spoke the Word of God. Jesus spoke God’s healing Word and as people believed on him, healing abounded. When God becomes clearly understood from the Scriptures, then His healing Word becomes a reality in our lives.

God sent His Word and healed them in the same manner that God sent Jesus Christ and healed them because Christ and God’s Word are inseparable. God sent His Son who said, “I have given them thy word” (John 17:14). Jesus gave of himself, giving his all in all even unto death. He is completely inseparable from the healing Word of God, in as much as the healing Word of God is inseparable from the true story of Jesus’ life.

In the Gospel of Matthew, as Jesus spoke the Word of God, healing became prevalent before his eyes, “For he taught them as one having authority” (Matthew 7:29), and his authority came from the healing Word of God.

Matthew 4:23–24:
-23: And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching {the Word} in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.
-24: And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy {paralyzed}; and he healed them.

Today the Word of God still reveals Jesus Christ who reveals God, and when we truly find God and His honor bestowed upon our lives, the more abundant life (John 10:10) becomes known and enjoyed. As the healing Word of God begins to permeate and uplift our believing and searching souls, we can say (and receive) with believing conviction: He sent his word and healed them, for our healing comes through Christ who is the healing Word and will of God.

The Garden of His Delight

“Today we walk with the Father in the Garden of His delight wherein He is our sufficiency as He continues to deliver and honor us. He {you and I} shall call upon me {God}, and I will answer him: I will be with him in {or through} trouble; I will deliver him {from trouble}, and {I God will} honour him- Psalms 91:15. WOW – God honors us! We today are God’s spiritual Garden, for we are His habitation (Ephesians 2:22), living in and enjoying our heavenly Father’s own cultivating. He gently pulls out the weeds of doubts, worries, and fears, and increases our confidence, trust, and believing faith to commit ourselves to His healing Word.” ~LMJ~

Esther – Revealing Our Good Day

Written by Larry M. Jaynes:

The Book of Esther reveals Christ as the Savior of God’s people and the preserving of the seed of Judah, from whom the promised seed would eventually come. The timing of the Book of Esther was during their Babylonian captivity (Esther 2:5-6).

A great believer named Mordecai and his cousin Esther literally saved the Jews from complete annihilation. They won King Ahasuerus’ favor, and prevented a devilish plot of the murder of all the tribe of Judah, and without Judah, Jesus Christ would never have been born to save the world. Jesus was the “Son of man” through Mary and he was the “Son of God,” by His creation through the immaculate conception.

The Book of Esther likens our deliverance and salvation to that of being a “good day,” a good day that still grows in our hearts moment by moment and day by day. When we come to know our personal Lord and Savior, every day becomes a very good day, because “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (II Peter 3:8).

This is why “our good day” is having, knowing, and believing that we have salvation and eternal life. We can find Jesus Christ inlaid throughout the Book of Esther for he is typified as our Savior through the lives of Mordecai and Esther.

Esther 8:16-17:
-16: The Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honour.
-17: And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king’s commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.

The decree, as horrible as it was, saved Judah, for the degree was to destroy all of those people who were conspiring to kill the Jews. This degree inspired the assassins to pretend that they themselves were Jews. It is interesting to note that the Jews were in bondage as slaves to those who captured them, yet, even in this state the captivators wanted to be in the shoes of the Jews in bondage.

Now ─ I would certainly call that a good day for the believers! So good was it, that they had light (God’s light), inner gladness, overflowing joy, and they were honored. Today, when we invite Jesus Christ into our lives, we will also have God’s light that brings gladness and joy into our days because of our believing on the Savior.

God Himself honors us, “He {the believer} shall call upon me {God}, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him” (Psalms 91:15).  What a wonderful day it is to know that we can walk in the light of God’s healing Word, endowed with the honor of the Creator.

The Bible says that we have the “day star” (II Peter 1:19), and that we are “the children of the light, and the children of the day” (I Thessalonians 5:5), for with God every day can become “our good day!”

I Peter 3:10-11:
– 10: For he that will love life, and see {perceive} good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
-11: Let him eschew {turn away} evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue {pursue} it.

As Christ comes into our lives, he can begin showing us all the wonderful things that God has given to us, and in turn we can learn to “love life” greater than we did as children. We can begin perceiving our God-given “good days” for we can find His peace in and around our lives.

“Behold now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” (II Corinthians 6:2).

Today is now and forever a day of salvation (which is not one day but an eternity of good days), for “we know that we have passed from {spiritual} death unto life {eternal life}” (I John 3:14).

As in Esther the believers were saved in a good day, today we have Christ within who is our good day!

How Would You like a Guaranteed Good Day? See-Esther!

“The Book of Esther likens their [believers’] deliverance and salvation to that of being a very good day- Esther 8:17. When we come to know our personal Lord and Savior, every day becomes a very good day, and one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day– II Peter 3:8. Just to spend a moment of one day with the Lord is more valuable and precious to him than one’s entire lifetime spent in unbelief and rejection. This is why our good day is having, knowing, and believing that we have salvation and eternal life, for we will ever be with the Lord. We can find the Golden Thread [of Jesus Christ] woven throughout the Book of Esther for he is typified as our Savior through the lives of both Mordecai and Esther; they enjoyed their deliverance with an abundance of good days and so may we. Today, when we invite Jesus Christ into our lives, we will also have God’s light that brings gladness and joy into our days because of our believing on the Savior. God Himself honors each and every child of His: I will deliver him, and honour him– Psalms 91:15. What a wonderful day it is to know that we can walk in the light of God’s healing Word, endowed with the laureled honors of our Creator. The Bible says that we have the day star- II Peter 1:19 rising in our hearts, and that we are the children of light, and the children of the day– I Thessalonians 5:5, for with God every day can become our good day!” ~LMJ & CAJ~
