Recently I had a very significant dream: A lot of people were together, all having their hands raised up and
pointing to the heavens, shouting, jumping and calling on God. I got the impression that they were contending
and pulling down promises and prophecies with the Word of God by proclamations and declarations and praise.
They were warring with the Word, looking and pointing unto heaven as though they were seeing into the unseen.
I received two scriptures as the Sword of the Lord, making separation between my soul and spirit, quickening my
understanding with such enlightenment that it became brand new to me:
"...and calleth those things which be not as though they were.” (Romans 4:17);
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrew 11:1)
Then I saw written in the air over the people in big blue letters: "Discipline"
As I was meditating on the dream, asking the Holy Spirit to give me understanding, I realized that there were
hidden keys of wisdom and knowledge for those who have ears to hear what the Spirit is saying…….!
THIS IS THE STRATEGY THAT THE LORD IS GIVING HIS PEOPLE FOR BREAKTHROUGH IN EVERY AREA OF THEIR
LIVES TO SEE THEIR PROMISES AND PROPHECIES COME INTO MANIFESTATION.
The people were in one accord and their attention was totally focused on the unseen realm. They were calling out
to God (Jer. 33:3; Ps. 17:6; Ps. 141:1), shouting (Ps. 47:1) and making declarations (Job 22:28) by faith, calling those
things which are seen by the eyes of faith (but unseen in the physical realm) just as though they were here
already (Rom. 4:17b) and praising Him with all their might as the One with whom nothing is impossible! (Matt. 19:26)
God has already given us the keys to shut up the second heaven and open the third heaven, namely His Rhema
Word. When God said something, He wants us to come in agreement with Him by faith, even if it sounds
impossible, or otherwise the Word will not profit us at all.
The Israelites heard the Word of God’s promise, “but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with
faith in them that heard it.” (Heb. 4:2) God’s promises do not change, but they will not profit us and we will not
see the manifestation thereof unless we come in agreement with God through faith and start contending for it.
We need to get spiritual vision by the faith of God (Mark 11:22). This implies that I must press in until my promise
Sound activates the Word, be it spoken, sung, proclaimed, declared, called forth. etc. It builds our own faith until
the Word gets from our head to our heart and becomes part of our spirit and our consciousness. This way it
becomes undisputed in our inner consciousness and now we can declare it through total conviction. “Seeing”
what God has promised us by the eyes of faith, we get mad at the enemy for having blinded us so long with
thoughts of doubt and unbelief and slothfulness. So it is time to dig out those unfulfilled promises and prophecies
and get violent at the enemy with that Word to take the Kingdom by force.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. “ (Heb. 11:1) Look at this verse
as though you have never seen or heard it before and ask Holy Spirit for a quickening in your understanding.
Having faith in God’s Word is the method to substantiate that which is already existing in the quantum realm
(because God said), and it is at the same time the proof that is will manifest in this realm (because the Word of
God says so).
In the quantum realm everything consists of information & energy. When it materializes in this earthly realm is
becomes substance through the speed of light and energy multiplies it. The spoken Word, energized by the Holy
Spirit, carries light and has creative power. Angels, who are light beings come into action (Ps. 103:20-21) and
brings it into manifestation when I make a decree by FAITH. In other words I command things to materialize by
calling it forth out of the unseen (quantum domain) by FAITH. The Rhema Word I speak by faith into the
atmosphere has the creative power of the Holy Spirit and is substantiated by FAITH (Heb. 11:1) It is God’s faith
(Mark 11: 22) with the authority of “KNOWING IN MY SPIRIT” and IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THE THINGS HOPED FOR,
THE EVIDENCE OF THE THINGS NOT SEEN) and therefore will be evidenced (materialize) by the spoken Word.
Contending with the Word
When we start contending with that Word, calling forth our promises and prophecies with shouts, claps, praise,
some wonderful things are starting to happen in the unseen realm.
The Word of God is Light. As soon as I “sound” the Word with faith, the Holy Spirit energizes the “unseen” Word
and puts it in motion to manifest in this realm:
“Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” (Mat 6:10) The angels, who are light beings, are
also acting on the Rhema Word coming from our mouths to bring it into manifestation.
The key-word and key-action is “Discipline”! We fast and pray and contend when we are in trouble, and as soon
as we receive an answer, our diligence fades out. Many of us have victory in some areas, but not in all. The
reason for this is simply that we look at the natural and accept it as it is with a vague hope that God will some day
change the situation and we do not contend with God’s Word with diligence and disciplined – day by day.
To stay in the flow of provision in “all” our needs, according to the riches of His glory, we need to come into the
discipline of using our Sword with diligence, holding fast our confession of faith, while our High Priest, Jesus is
interceding for us. (Heb. 4:14-16)
Keep it up!
Keep up your daily practice of confessing life over every situation and area of your life: spirit, soul, body (health),
family, relationships, ministry or business, destiny, finances, etc.
Do not stop your affirmation of the Word after your promise has manifested, but continue steadfastly praising the
Lord and rejoicing in His Word that does not return to Him void.
Make sure that you give the devil no gap through undisciplined speech, for death and life is in the power of the
tongue and you will eat the fruit of your words. (Prov. 18:21)
To sum up:
-Dig out your promises and prophecies
-Meditate on it
-Ask yourself what is your conscious belief about it
-Get rid of doubt and unbelief
-Come in agreement with God and commit yourself to speak the Word only
-Start confessing the Word on a daily basis to build your faith and get it into
-Envision the outcome by faith – get the picture in your mind and write it
down or put a picture to it on your computer or on the fridge (Hab. 2:1)
-Start contending for the manifestation of your promises on a daily basis
-Use your mouth as an instrument to war with His Living Sound (the Rhema
Word) in the heavenlies and shut up the enemy’s lies
-Discipline yourself to do it on a daily basis until it manifests
-Then water your plant daily with the Word in rejoicing and praising God.
