In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were confronted by the enemy in the form of a serpent who came to deceive them. The first words out of the enemy’s mouth was: Has God said, did God really say? Satan was sowing doubt and even today it’s still a huge weapon of the enemy against Christians. Many times, it even happens in Christian environments, and in many churches. Sadly, they’re sowing more doubt than faith in the believers. They’ll question whether healing is for today, the baptism of the holy spirit is for today, and if the gifts of the Spirit are for today. It’s just doubt after doubt after doubt: sowing doubt all the time. That’s the work of the serpent, the devil. That’s not the work of God.
The power of the Gospel is going to bring you from faith to faith and not from unbelief to unbelief. Therefore, if you’re in an environment that’s only sowing doubt into your life, you’re not hearing the gospel. The gospel should be building you up in faith and setting you free. The gospel should be increasing your joy, peace, love and faith to believe God. Any message that’s stealing your faith is from the thief, it’s the serpent. Don’t spend your time listening to the serpent. Spend your time getting into the word of God and finding out what he has for you.
Romans 8:11 says, “But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you”. This verse says that the Holy Spirit will quicken our mortal bodies. The word of God is powerful. It’s not just limited to your spiritual regeneration. The power of God’s word should touch your mind, emotions, your will, and body. That’s when you know that you’re truly encountering the real power of the gospel. That’s when you can begin to believe and walk in health and healing.
If the messages you are hearing are only producing negativity and stealing your faith, then that’s not the gospel. If the messages are leaving you with uncertainty, with thoughts like ‘the future is up in the air, and whatever is going to happen, is going to happen,’ then that’s not the gospel, that’s just unbelief clothed in religion. The gospel is a message that has come to set you free. It has come to empower you, to give you God’s thoughts, and something which is good, acceptable and perfect. The gospel is to give you God’s life, and that which is exceedingly, abundantly, more than you can ask or think. That’s the power of the gospel.
Have you really been introduced to the true gospel? If there is no change and your life is still a mess, then the power of the gospel’s experience hasn’t been discovered, developed, and released into your life. However, that’s available through this message that I’m conveying to you. The gospel is more than a belief system. It’s not just a belief, but the gospel is the power of God to salvation. That means everything you need: spirit, soul, and body, is available. Whatever you need is available through the incorruptible seed of God’s word by which you got born again. That gospel power is in God’s word, but has it been released, and discovered? And is it being fed, growing, and increasing in your life continually? Make sure it does by continuing in His word.
