Email Message 2

|Greetings in the Name of Jesus
Matt. 7:7-8 says, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
You will note that the first letter of Ask, Seek and Knock spell “ASK”.
Do we really believe we can ASK and it will be given to us? Wow! Just think about the power these words give a person. We could actually get people healed, set free or delivered from demonic activity or we might even work miracles in His name. Aaah, but we would have to believe what God said in His Word; we would have to take God at His Word, no doubting, no disbelief, no hesitation.
We believe the doctor when he tells us something. We believe the news paper we read. We believe what we hear and see on television. We believe our history books. Everyone in the world believes that George Washington was the first president of America. Why? It’s in the history books. Everyone in the world believes men have been on the moon. Why? We saw it on television.
It is His will that we ASK and receive what we want or need. If it is not His will then the above Scripture is a lie ….. and God cannot lie.
Matt. 21:21-22 says, “….Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
Jesus had cursed the fig tree and it died. He said we could do that, too. We have no need of moving literal mountains or cursing trees…but apparently we could actually do it. Why? Because it is in God’s Word.
The above Scripture says, “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
All things means just that “all things” and whatsoever means just that “whatsoever”. “All things” and “whatsoever” covers everything.
There is one thing we must learn and that is found in James 4:3 which says,
“Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lust.”
God will not allow anyone to use His Word for lustful, selfish reasons.
You may feel like you can’t do anything. You can make a commitment.
You think you can’t serve God in any kind of ministry. You can put yourself in the place where God’s power will work through you.
Serving God is not a sudden burst of emotion, it is a conscious, deliberate act of your will.
In His service,
P.S. If you know someone that would enjoy this message, please feel free to forward it.
