You see, the universe was created to follow and obey us.
Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
Gen 1:26 NKJV
God gave us authority over everything, so it now depends on what aspect of the universe we call. For instance, poor people talk about poverty and get poorer, rich people talk about riches and are always richer, a more practical example, haven’t you noticed a student that reads for exams, but keeps saying he can’t pass and so finds himself failing at the end of the day? This is to say, we can either call the positive universe around us or the negative universe…
13Then Moses said to God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ what shall I say to them?” 14 And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.'” 15 Moreover God said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’
Understand this, God says my name is I AM and verses 15b Says it remains so eternally, but here is the thing, the devil is anything that God is not so technically, if God is I AM; I am not will represent the devil…
“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
Exodus 20:7 NKJV
now is there any statement I Am won’t fit in? Certainly not; I AM fits into everything, therefore it is important to note the b part of that verses 7, He says, He will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain(this statement represents a punishment which only means, there is also a blessing for anyone who doesn’t take His name in vain).
Those are the negative and positive aspects of life we mentioned earlier on. So whenever you say things like, I can’t do it, I can’t get it or I am a failure etc. what we are saying is I AM(not) able to- (please understand this); what you have succeeded in doing is calling God’s name but removing His power from your situation (using the name in vain), so since He won’t hold the person (you) guiltless, that negative universe comes to the person(that’s why a lot of people are in a mess today), but when you say I AM a success(even when you’re failing), I AM financially stable(even when you look broke) etc., God honours His word, even more than His name(psalm138:2nkjv), thus makes it so, because this is what the Lord said:
Say to them, ‘As I live,’ says the Lord, ‘just as you have spoken in My hearing, so I will do to you.
Numbers 14:28 NKJV
Here is why you are allowed to say the immediate above. The book of Joel 3:10b says’ Let the weak say I AM strong”. Now when you say such, it’s not the truth from a fact’s perspective but it’s also not a lie from a faith’s perspective. As Christians, “we walk by faith not by sight” (2nd Corinthians 5:7 nkjv). “Without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6 nkjv), Scriptures says, “speaking those things that were not as though they were” (Romans 4:17 nkjv).Here is the point, faith is not what you think God will do but what you know He has done, in that case, you mind what you’re saying not what you’re seeing, because like we have agreed or seen, I AM fits into all statements(situations); your believe determines how you use it.
“Saying, I Am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last…”
Revelation 1:11a NKJV.
“I Am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore…”
Revelation 1:18a NKJV
Jesus introduced himself as I Am, repeatedly in the book of revelation to remain us how important it is, for us to realize His presence is always with us. He says I Am the first and the last, what this means is that, if He started it, then He sure would finish it. He wants you and me to trust him. “Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of God”(Romans 10:17),which means you can’t have faith in what you’ve not heard,(that’s why sometimes it’s a bit discouraging when looking at the situation one is in; and it’s this discouragement that make us invite the negative universe to us, even when in some cases we are expectant of the positive universe),but now, you’ve heard and also know for a fact that, this faith is only in Christ Jesus(the only location to finding your positive universe). I encourage you to know Him today and invite Him into your universe; your life (to do so please visit my Yes To Jesus Page http://bib4le.wordpress.com/yes-to-jesus/). Once you do this (and I congratulate you if you already have given your life to Jesus Christ or are about to do so, because you will agree with me to this), you will begin to understand the concept of a permanent positive universe (heaven on earth) knowing that:
- “When you pray and God answers immediately, He does it to increase your Faith,
- When you pray and God delays, He does it to increase your patience, and
- When you pray and God does not answer, it’s only because He has better plans for you.”
“Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
Hebrews 11:1 NKJV
That’s why you need to trust him with your positive universe, and stop calling to yourself the negative universe. But again, this can only be done through Him (http://bib4le.wordpress.com/yes-to-jesus/).
