Prayer - Part 2
Truth, Fact, Lie
In the Word Studies - Part 1, we defined Truth as the "Word of God".
Jesus is the Truth / the Word manifested in the flesh.
And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.
Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and thy law is the truth.
Thou art near, O LORD; and all thy commandments are truth.
It is the Truth of the Word that will change things and set a person free.
the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the
glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
We define Lie as
anything that does not line up with the "Word of God". All lies
come from the father of lies, the devil. The devil and demons
cannot speak Truth and will always have a Lie in whatever they say.
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
We define Fact as
a person's physical circumstances. The Fact or circumstances
either line up with the Truth or the Lie. Lets look at two
are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.
He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth,
because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh
of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
1 John 2:21
I have not written unto you because ye know not the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
1 John 2:27
the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need
not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of
all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught
you, ye shall abide in him.
In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the
Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?
changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the
creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
If a person has cancer in there body, that is a Fact. If the
person is not a believer, that is - they are still in their sin, then
the Fact lines up with the Truth, because they are under the curse of
the law. You see, all sickness and disease carries the seed of
death, which is the curse of the law.
However, we as believers can intercede for that person to see them healed and saved.
you do not carefully observe all the words of this law that are written
in this book, that you may fear this glorious and awesome name, THE
LORD YOUR GOD, then the LORD will bring upon you and your descendants
extraordinary plagues -- great and prolonged plagues -- and serious and
prolonged sicknesses. Moreover He will bring back on you all the
diseases of Egypt, of which you were afraid, and they shall cling to
you. Also every sickness and every plague, which is not written in this
Book of the Law, will the LORD bring upon you until you are destroyed.
You shall be left few in number, whereas you were as the stars of
heaven in multitude, because you would not obey the voice of the LORD
your God. And it shall be, that just as the LORD rejoiced over you to
do you good and multiply you, so the LORD will rejoice over you to
destroy you and bring you to nothing; and you shall be plucked from off
the land which you go to possess.
If a person has cancer in there body, that is a Fact. If the
person is a born-again believer, they have been redeemed from the curse
of the law:
the Fact lines up with the Lie. So, we can take the Truth (the
Word of God) and use it against the Lie to change the circumstances /
has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us
(for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree"), that the
blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that
we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
1 Peter 2:24
Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died
to sins, might live for righteousness -- by whose stripes you were
Three Things We Speak Too
In "praying" and applying the Truth of the Word of God to a
circumstance to change it, we normally speak to three things, in this
following order. You will notice that we always pray and speak
the Word of Truth to each of the three.
1. We pray to the Father, in the name of Jesus.
the example of cancer: "Father God, I thank You that You sent Your Word
and healed me, that Jesus took my sicknesses and carried my sorrows,
and with whose stripes I was healed. Father God, I ask You to
enforce Jesus' victory over sickness and disease and death, and
manifest Your power and anointing thru the Holy Spirit in my body, to
destroy every yoke of sickness and disease, and to manifest / create /
cause healing and continual divine health in my body, with your Spirit
quickening my mortal body, in Jesus' name. I receive it of you,
Father, in Jesus' name, and I praise You and thank You for it, in
Jesus' name. Amen (SO BE IT!)."
If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I
do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I
will send Him to you.
in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you,
whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Until now you
have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy
may be full.
1 John 3:22-23
whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments
and do those things that are pleasing in His sight. And this is His
commandment: that we should believe on the name of His Son Jesus Christ
and love one another, as He gave us commandment.
1 John 5:14-15
this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything
according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us,
whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked
2. We bind and loose (i.e., fight Spiritual Warfare)
Most circumstances (if not all circumstances) that line up with the Lie
are due to demonic spiritual forces (e.g., witchcraft) and spirits
(e.g., demons) operating against the person. In order to change
the circumstances, we must first bind the
demonic forces / spirits that are at work. To bind means not only
(1) not to permit, but also (2) to literally bind or chain so as not to
allow free movement (or attack against the person). We call the
spirit by what it is doing (e.g., spirit of cancer). So we bind
the demonic force and cast it out.
we loose the person from the demonic hold, and we loose the Holy
Spirit, the anointing, the power of God. We loose whatever the
person needs, for example, healing.
if I cast out demons with the finger of God, surely the kingdom of God
has come upon you. When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own
palace, his goods are in peace. But when a stronger than he comes upon
him and overcomes him, he takes from him all his armor in which he
trusted, and divides his spoils.
16 And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day?
both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will
say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
So we see Jesus loosing the woman from the demonic spirit and loosing or applying the power of the Spirit thru laying on of hands.
he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the sabbath. And, behold,
there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and
was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. when Jesus
saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her, Woman, thou art
loosed from thine infirmity. And he laid his hands on her: and
immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.
Jesus gave us authority to operate in His name, in His authority, and
He said He would back up what we said. The word "ask" in the
following verse is actually "demand" in the original Greek. Jesus
is not talking about prayer, because in prayer, the Father gives or
does it, and it is "asked" for - not "demanded". However, here
Jesus is saying He will enforce His authority when you "demand" demonic forces to loose someone, in Jesus' name.
the following verse where it says "might destroy" the works of the
devil, the Greek word is "loose". So we see that Jesus came to loose
people from the works of the devil, and he has command us to do the
same, in casting out devils, in that Jesus said in Luke 11:20-22 that you must bind before you can cast out.
And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you
bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth
will be loosed in heaven."
I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and
whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
1 John 3:8
that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the
beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
the example of cancer: "I bind every demonic force and spirit,
including the spirit of cancer, sent against this person, in the name
of Jesus. I cancel your assignments against this person, negating
every witchcraft and every negative and evil thing said / sent / spoke
against this person, that not even the tongue of a dog may rise against
this person, in Jesus' name. I cast out the demonic forces and
He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every
creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who
does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those
who believe: In My name they will cast out demons;
they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if
they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will
lay hands on the sick, and they will recover."
(1) into the abyss (bottomless pit, which is a prison for demons - Luke 8:30-31, Rev 9:1-3), or
loose this person from their holds / devices / effects, in Jesus' name,
and I loose healing to follow into this person, in Jesus' name. I
loose the anointing and power of God that destroys this yoke of bondage
(Isa 10:27, Isa 58:6) and that heals and restores (Acts 10:38), in the name of Jesus'. "
(2) that they go and never return to this person again (Mark 9:25), in Jesus' name.
3. We speak to the circumstances
Last, we speak to the circumstances themselves and command them to line up with the Word of God.
did not say that you need a "mountain of faith", but only the littlest
of faith - a seed, using it in action to speak to the
circumstance. Jesus said that whatever the HUGE circumstance that
is in your life, that seems that impossible to move or overcome or get
around, whatever that mountain of Fact is, if you will speak to it, it will obey, that is, it will obey the Word of God and name of Jesus, and be removed.
in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from
the roots. And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master,
behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away. And Jesus
answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto
you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain,
Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in
his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall
come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. And the Lord said,
If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.
Remember that God is a God of faith, that speaks to the circumstances Himself.
he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still.
And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm And he said unto them,
Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
God created us in His image, and gave us creative power in our words.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him
whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
If you are born-again, then you received that miracle by (1) believing in your heart, and (2) confessing with your mouth. In the first century, Christianity was known as the "great confession".
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
2 Cor 4:13
having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I
believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore
And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately.
In our example of cancer, you have to understand that Jesus is not
"going" (future tense) to heal you; He already has (past tense) healed
you (1 Peter 2:24). You need to receive it. Put another
way, the doctor does not need to create "pills", but you need to
receive them. If you take a concordance (such as Strong's
Concordance of the King James translation of the Bible, which lists
every word and its scripture locations) and study "save" and "heal",
you fill find that biblically speaking (that is to say, it is in the
Bible) people cried out to God to "save" them and "heal" them before
the cross. However, biblically speaking you will not find in the
Bible where people cried out "save" me or "heal" me. I did not
say that people do not still do that, but I am saying it is not
Biblical because Jesus has already "saved" them and "healed"
them. They need to receive it and walk in (maintain) that
In the example of cancer: "I command this body to line up with the Word
of God, in Jesus' name. With whose stripes you were healed, Jesus
Christ makes you whole, be thou whole, in Jesus' name."
Then get the person to do something that they could not do
before. It is important in healing and deliverance that the
people act on the faith that has been released (Matt 9:6-7, Acts 3:6-8)
After having spoke to the three things, maintain your believe (your faith). As Smith Wigglesworth used to say, "only believe".
a doctor gave a person a bottle of pills and said take one of these
every morning for 30 days, they would get up every morning and take
that pill believing that it will change their circumstances, even
though they may not at first see any change, they will be faithful in
believing and taking that pill till it manifest. How much more
should we believe in the Word of God and continue in faith in His Word
until it manifest!
Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God
must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who
diligently seek Him.
did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was
strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced
that what He had promised He was also able to perform.
