(BY APOSTLE PAUL JOHNSON ASAMOAH)
When talking about creative word, it’s all about creative power, creative action, creative information, creative revelation, creative picture, creative message, creative sentence, creative speech, and creative view. Etc. creativity is the use of imagination to produce new ideas or things; to form or to produce, Joshua 17:18 ‘’but the mountain country shall be yours. Although it is wooded, you shall cut it down, and its farthest extent shall be yours, for you shall drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots and are strong.’’ Before going into a deeper revelation concerning the creative words in the bible from God’s very own mouth, let me take you to the general things around us. There are amazing things like moon, stars, weather, human, animals which of course were created by God, and we also have things like motors, aero planes, refrigerators, computers, machines which are all man-made things. All these things mentioned above are what I like to call act of creativity, if you trace its roots you will find out that all these came into existence due to words spoken. In a standard form, creativity is therefore a divine capacity-that is, the ability to form/act/produce. In the book of Gen 1:1 ‘’…God created the Heaven and the Earth’’, I want to ask you this question, do you have the mind to create? Creative word is all about bringing out what is in you, so the amount of God’s word in you will determine how much you’ll create; the less the words, the less the creation. God has all the words in Him that is why He was able to create all things to exist; God is full of words, He IS THE WORD! A container full of water is heavier than a container half filled with water, the water I use is full of rhema word, in order for humans to create anything around them, they need to have that creative word and that creative word comes from God, The bible says ‘’He sent forth His word to come and perform and return without being void’’. The bible says ‘’ be rich in His word’’ so the more you are rich in His word, the more you will have enough in you to produce/create things. Have you ever been to a chief’s Palace before? If yes, then you probably know that all the words that come out from the chief’s mouth are very expensive, very costly, very precious; words of honour, words of power, words of creativity, so because of that he doesn’t just utter words, he doesn’t speak anyhow like any ordinary man would, all his words carry weight, the same applies to our maker! His words are full of authority for He speaks and it happens! Believing the mere words of bishops, leaders, pastors, prophets, presidents won’t give us that divine word we seek, this is the time for us to dive deeply into the word of God for without your meditation upon it day and night, you will never be truly successful in your businesses, marriage life, and ministry. Etc. start using the Word of God to create wonderful things in your life, if you say with your mouth that it will be hard then surely it will be hard, the bible says ‘’let the poor say I am rich and let the weak say I am strong…’’ so what do you tell yourself? You can create your own world! You can create your own marriage! You can create your own marriage! You can create your own job while jobless! You can create your own business, ministry, economy. Etc you can make anything happen by your words and thoughts! Hallelujah! Change your information today; what else do you think you have to change? Is it your attitude, character? Etc what information do you have about yourself? Is it good or bad? Most people, most things are not working effectively because of the information about them, God wants me to let you know that you have the power to change that, do not waste time, switch to your original information which is the word of God in you! Remember that someone created you by His word, as you already know, the very day after God created us, He did not continue, on the 7th day He rested, leaving it to you and I to continue. God did not create computers, houses, chalk, pen, engines and the likes…these were designed by human, it was the humans imagination that brought about the creation of those things, as well as the dresses you wear, car and many other things you cherish. What is your imagination? Remember the world is advancing as time goes by so don’t just sit there and imagine yourself still living in that apartment, or wasting time imagining and not depending on God, it doesn’t work that way. You cannot imagine yourself three years time fornicating with that married woman, drinking alcohol, thinking about the world and expect God to help you achieve those worldly dreams, He won’t! Simply because it doesn’t go according to His word! The bible says to fix our minds on things above not things on earth, so having God’s kind- of -imagination will always help create the right images in your mind, the right condition around you. Suffering only comes when you create it in mind, long life will come when you create it in mind, and peace will come if you create it. Sometimes words of creation brings forth other creation, I know you were definitely given birth to by someone, if you’re already an adult you will also give birth. Words could also give birth so watch what you say, it could be bullets that comes from your mouth, are you shooting people indirectly with your words? Let us see what the bible says, Prov 18: 21 says ‘’death and life are in the power of the tongue and those who love it will eat its fruits’’ if you ever heard anyone complain about his/her problem, he most probably created it first or should I say allowed it to take place, any broken car, flat tire or any other spoilt thing always give signs before occurring, in the same way a human’s or an animal’s sickness shows signs before manifesting but the fellow didn’t take it serious and that’s how come they mature into other things, so never joke with words; they are creative, they carry power, they can either give life or death. You can use words to die or live, you can choose words of healing or sickness, words can either be medicine or non-medicine (poison), and when your words are full of poison, the result is death. Being dead in the spiritual realm only means living your life anyhow, according to the Bible in Romans 6:23’’the wages of sin is death’’. Someone may say how are bad words a sin? Well, if it is not of Christ, it is of Satan! There is nothing like Luke-warm in the history of believers, if it is not of Christ it is of Satan and if it’s of Satan, it is sin! So when you are dead spiritually, the body isn’t moving and that is when you fall into anything at all; you fall into temptation, fornication, adultery and all kinds of sin. When you are not in sin you gain eternal life, your choice of words should be able to bring you eternal life, Jesus said in the book of Joshua 6 ‘’the words that I speak are life and spirit’’, you realize there was nothing like death, Jesus doesn’t speak death that is why He resurrected, death could not hold Him captive because He had no partnership with Death! How come you are still in that condition, you are the one creating it with your negative thoughts, you speak death, you speak sickness (you have been diagnosed of a sickness and you are already thinking of how and where you are going to be buried), your words about your marriage is not good that’s why your marriage life isn’t good. Learn this from Jesus; His words are always a Yes and a No, most people don’t use the word ‘’yes’’ when they are suppose to, and they use the word ‘’No’’ when they are not suppose to, but Jesus knew when to use the word ‘’no’’ and when to use ‘’yes’’. Most people are afraid to say their problems to God, most surprisingly, others are even shy to talk to God about their problems but guess what? If you don’t tell God about your weakness you will never find God’s strength. A man in Africa always puts on dirty clothes and torn shoes or even slippers (generally known as chalewate in my country) when going to meet up with a white man, meanwhile he owns better clothing and shoes, now why does he do that? It‘s simple, he only does that so the white man may show compassion on him and perhaps offer to help him (that is what usually happens in Africa), this is what I like to call an Africa -man’s-creativity. Thank God, I am an African and don’t do these things, I declare and decree I am rich! I am blessed! Amen! Sometimes, people say I am a creative man, others say I am full of blessings because I don’t see myself poor; this is just by the grace of God. May you change your mentality through the words you speak. David was in the bush but he still depended on Psalm 23, go to psalm 23, there, you will find some creative words. Assuming that Jesus came into your sinking boat, what would He say to you? Will He join you to say ‘’no it’s impossible’’ or is He going to remind you that nothing is impossible with God? Anywhere that Jesus went to, He empowered people, and anywhere the Devil went to, he brought down the spirit of people. Anyone who belongs to the Devil kills vision brings down the spirit of others, creating confusion and the likes. When Jesus gets involved in your marriage, it’s never going to be the same, who is Jesus? He is the creative word we are talking about, the bible says in John 1 that in the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word was God! Vrs 3 ’’all things were made through Him and without Him nothing was made that was made’’ vrs4 ‘’in Him was life and the life was the light of men’’ vrs5 ‘’and the light shines in the darkness and the darkness COMPREHENDED NOT’’. Comprehend only means to seize, lay hold of, and overcome, but the word of God made us understand that the darkness does not gain control of it! Darkness is unreceptive and does not understand it, the darkness can never be able to eliminate it; light and darkness essentially are antagonistic. The Christian's joy is in knowing that light is not only greater than darkness but will also outlast the darkness. Christians are not under Moses, Apostle Paul Johnson Asamoah, T.D Jakes, Benny Hinn or other people, but Christian’s are under Christ Jesus/God’s creative word, who are you under? God speaks to man today through Jesus, Matt 17:5, John 12:48, therefore everyone must look up to Jesus. Why do I keep saying Jesus? Christ means saviour/anointed one, and Jesus means the creative word. Are we still under the law? The answer is no, if you are still under the law then it is time you allow yourself be under Jesus. Make your own sentence to form your own speech through His word so that you may be able to function like Jesus and act like He does. Psalm 119:126, it is time for God to act! Just allow yourself, allow God’s word to act in your way of doing things. Christians are under a perfect law of liberty; the way to life is through Jesus that is why He said in His word that ‘’I am the way the truth and the life…’’ so in order for our way to be creative, we need to be in conjunction with Him to allow His creative word to operate in us. Jesus is our final authority, on judgment day, we will be judged according to the word of God. Jesus said ‘’he who rejects me does not receive my word…’’ Jesus has the word of the spirit of life, it is through Him that all men must approach God, Jesus has initiated a new covenant and we are under it; agree to work together with Him, let us leave the grand work for Him to do in our lives, Allow Jesus to fill your loophole with His word. Paul said ‘’I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’’, by His word you can cause all things to happen in your life, begin to say your marriage is working! Begin to say things you have never heard of before. In Gen 1:3 ‘’Let there be light and there was light’’, what I want you to know is that there is nothing God says that doesn’t happen, Jesus made a statement in Mark11:22, it’s all about faith! Whatever that you say will work if you don’t doubt it in your heart. Isaiah 55:10-11 ’’for as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, they do not return but water the earth and make it bring forth that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth; it shall not return void, but it shall accomplish what I please and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it’’. The word of God will help you to be creative with His word. Faith fills one’s words with victory, fear fills one’s word with defeat, what are you filling your words with? The more words of faith you speak, the more creative you become; this gives an information about people in the bible who stood up and prayed for their breakthrough, it was a spiritual warfare, faith is all about declaring His word into reality/being. In the book of 2 Kings 19:14, ‘’Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it; and Hezekiah went up to the house of the Lord and Hezekiah prayed before the Lord, and said: ‘’O Lord God of Israel, the one who dwells between the cherubim, you are God, you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.’’ Hezekiah declared what was about to happen to him in the book of Isaiah 38, he was able to change all that which was about to happen to him by his words. Nothing negative was uttered by Hezekiah so please watch and change your way of talking and your reactions towards certain conditions- rather use it to change the condition you are in or the challenge you are going through. Hezekiah faced a problem but was able to change it, God was only testing him, remember God never tempts but tests, God just allow temptations but He doesn’t cause it, back at Job; to God, he was testing him, to the devil, he was tempting him, this may happen to you but keep using the creative word to change situations, if Job was able to change his situation so can you. Job was restored by God so may you receive your restoration in the name of Jesus. If you are to read the book of Job very carefully, you will know that Job got to a point of declaring prophetic words into the lifestyle of others as well as himself and he became wealthy. Your choice of words are very important, even if you are in the worst situation ever, never speak just like that-know what to say, words can destroy or make you. The devil can’t do anything until you voice out, words are so powerful! Sometimes when you create things in your mind and you never voice out the devil may not be able to do anything till you open your mouth and he waits on you to do it-being it negative or positive, he still hopes you speak negative in order for him to operate, that is why you need to say words of victory, encouragement and good things. Job, Hezekiah were able to apply God’s word to change their situation, 1 Kings 17: 1 ‘’now Elijah the Tishbite from Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, ‘as the lord, the God of Israel lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word.’ ’Job was able to exchange words with God, what do I mean by exchanging of words, Job got to a point of no hope that God asked job a lot of questions, he didn’t answer but fell in love with God even much more. Just read Job 38 and see for yourself what actually went on between Job and God. God revealed his omnipotence habit to Job. God was able to create words that job had no idea at all, it was all about questions; in the whole book of the bible, there is no where God questioned anyone more than Job, read the book of Job and see if you can answer any of the questions there. God kept on asking Job more question and then job answered the Lord, ‘’what shall I answer you God, I lay my hand over my mouth, once I have spoken but I will not answer; yes twice but I will proceed no further.’’ People are speaking but it is not according to the way it is, speaking or declaring alone doesn’t mean you’ve got an answer, your speaking alone doesn’t mean you’ve created something. Watch your speech before you come out with it. God challenged Job by asking Job ‘’ if you say you are a man prepare yourself’’, the questions God asked Job is not 41, 50, 100, but it was a thousand questions with more than thousand answers, all this means God wanted to alert Job in order for him to act and to discipline himself like the way God wants him to, to cancel some pronouncements or declaration, or characters that seemed to be unseen in the lifestyle of Job, the questions continue up to chapter 42 when Job was revived. Know your stand in the Lord and He will take you to solve all problems and start creating what you haven’t created; what you don’t know, God knows so shut up and let His word control you. Job was trying to express himself but he did not come out with any answer at all, the same way someone reading this chapter of my book might also be going through tough times and doesn’t know what to do- learn from Job and behave yourself well for God to work on you. Proverb 23:16 is about Solomon- the preacher man, ‘’yes my inmost being will rejoice when your lips speak right things’’ your lips are to declare right things, so make sure not to declare the wrong things but the right things always, learning from these few people will help you learn some things to help you go far with your life. Job 22:28 ‘’you shall declare a thing and it will be established for you’’ what are you declaring? Read Job 6:10 and know how to declare your words. Job 23:12 ‘’ I have not departed from the commandments….’’ When you are creating something, make sure you combine it with the word of God! Not the word of a family or friend. Jesus became poor so that you may be rich, I am rich, you are rich. May you treasure the word of God more than anything. Did you know God’s word can give you everything? God’s word is food for the soul and even more than that, God’s word can provide anything, give medicine..etc. Proverb 2:6, Psalm 119:11. Let us go through the profile of the rest of the men of God like Abraham-he made a mistake by lying, let me ask you as a minister, president, lawyer, doctor, that how many lies have you said so far? From today, stop lying, learn from this and stop certain habits for your words to be genuine. Moses- many were the things God used him to do; he made a mistake that hindered him from getting to Canaan. Leaders let us learn from these things to make what we say be effective. Daniel- no mistake, anything he said happened so fast. What about your profile? How many lies? How many mistakes? Samuel- no mistake, the bible says none of His word fails; it has to work. Joseph-no mistake, stop failing God; enough with the excuses! Even Nahum who had no one following him did not make a mistake, it is not based on your ministries, it is based on our relationship with God. There was a woman in the bible who declared that until she sees Jesus there is no way she was going to die, this woman was 84 years and it came to pass. Today, stand firm before your creative word will function, Elisha declared something to happen to the children and it happened; anything we declare with our mouth will happen if our walk is right with God. I declared into the life of a woman whose marriage was canceled one week before her wedding, I told her that her marriage was coming on and by the grace of God, this Sunday she will be having their wedding, glory and honour to God. I have come to believe there is nothing like continue-struggle, contact Apostle Paul Johnson Asamoah and if you follow the direction of God, you will begin to see the solutions. When you follow your own opinion , nothing happens but when based on the word of God things begin to change, within this week I told one of my daughters who is also a pastor that she is not the only person I have ordained but others too and make sure that in this calling, she will continue to be on guard’’, 2 Tim 2:1,2 ‘’ you therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus and the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also’’, so may the Lord approve of your ministry, work, Christian life. Etc to sum up, Joshua 1 says be strong and be courageous and face the condition, so Joshua was able to solve all problems. How many people do you think walked with Jesus and they were still drunkards, fornicators? As a leader and as a Christian, I can assure you there was none! Except for Judas for it was through him that Jesus was crucified for our salvation. Let me ask you this question, will Judas go to heaven or hell? There are some things that are controversial and it takes only God to answer, may God help you know the answers. The more afraid you are, the more the problems will keep coming and the more you end up in bad company. The other time I told the church to live like Psalm one, if possible they should paste them somewhere and keep saying it every day, the more you say it the more it works! No one plays with fire without getting burn, you might think you are just saying it but before you know it you are there! Praise God! If your favorite phrase is ‘’I can’t do it’’, truly you will never know how to do it, you got to speak words of life! You got to speak words of wisdom! You got to speak words of healing! You got to speak it ALL! When people ask me of my well being, I tell them ‘’oh I am great by His grace’’, there is absolutely no way that is ever going to change in my life, I will forever be great in the name of Jesus! That is the word I have created for my life and will always say it for I KNOW the kind of power invested in me! For I KNOW the power that lies in the tongue! For I KNOW I speak health not sickness! For I KNOW I have been given the power to trample over serpents! For I KNOW the kind of God I worship! Hallelujah! Change your words! Let your words be full of praises, let your words be full of thanksgiving, let your words be full healing and do not let your words be full of sin-any negative word creates sin! The bible says in Isaiah 53:3-5 that Jesus took away our negativity, grief such as sickness, weakness. Etc. brethren, He carries our sorrows, it is all on Him, why worry about them? Why spend time thinking about them? DECLARE NOW! Oh don’t be shy, there is no shyness in this, just declare loudly and boldly with FAITH, I AM HEALED AND MADE WHOLE!, I AM HEALED AND MADE WHOLE! I AM HEALED AND MADE WHOLE! Declare as many times as you can and receive your breakthrough now, anything you need solutions to, just declare, just declare! Make how you want the situation to be! You have been given the power; you have been given the mandate. Jesus has already replaced your poverty with riches, your sickness with health, your grief with joy and brother, sister, I am talking about that kind of joy in Christ. Hallelujah! Declare your liberty, because the bible says in 2 Cor 3:17 ‘’where the spirit of God, there is total liberty’’. In 1st peter 2:24, the Apostle Peter referred to Isaiah under the new covenant and said, ’’He bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we might die and live to righteousness by his wounds, we have been healed’’, isn’t that wonderful? See to it that your newness is within God’s word and that everything about you is going according to God’s purpose for your life. Healing belongs to you, peace belongs to you, peace belongs to you! It is not a matter of begging, it is yours! You have every right to it as a child of God, now receive it! With God’s words, it always works, that is why you need to keep saying God’s words right at Him, Hallelujah, keep saying them until you see it happen. Build that dream house by creating it in your word, say ‘’I will put the fridge here’’ even if do not own a fridge! You can start creating your own car, create your own children-declare where they will be sitting in your car, start declaring. Aim high by creating, don’t let anything hinder you, David said in the book of Psalm ‘’His name shall never depart from my mouth’’, ‘’His name is that creative word! May creative words never depart from your lips in Jesus’ name. Never say it is hard, for the devil is the oppressor- John 10 ’’ the thieve comes to steal, kill and destroy but the son of man comes that you may have life…’’ , Satan’s mission is to change God’s purpose in your life, sometimes he steals your joy, breakthrough, healing and exchanges it with bad things, but my bible tells me that whatever that you bound on earth shall be bound in heaven; brethren listen to this, ‘’…the kingdom of God suffers violence and the violence taketh it by force’’, YOU, yes you, you have to take it all back, it can’t be done by your friend, mother, teacher but You! You got to take back all that the devil has stolen from you by THE WORD OF GOD –the creative word! the devil is the only person who inflicts sickness, suffering, death, pain, etc. on us so anytime we go through anything we should apply the word of God. Remember! That the devil can only get to you when the word of God is limited in your heart, when your heart is full of the word of God, it is impossible for the devil to penetrate. Behold I pray that you may prosper in all your doings and that you be in health such as your soul prospers, health in this statement actually means you have a sound mind, faith, doctrine and everything you are expecting that God heals in your life. May you be healed both physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally and materially! Nothing should block you from gaining anything that belongs to you; this is up to you to make it happen. Know where you stand, keep the word of God, live with what God says always and free yourself from sinful deeds. Be responsible for your life and your future, create your future and keep seeing yourself there. Moses sent 12 people to spy the land of Canaan, ten were so scared that they retreated but two weren’t and the bible says they claimed the land; it is not always about the majority, the majority doesn’t always carry the vote-ten failed but two succeeded, what you declare is what you will see and what you see is what you just might get. If you declare positively you will end up getting positive things, same applies with declaring negative things. With positive creative words you will have everything your heart desires, positive creative words include;
1. Words of faith
2. Words of life
3. Words of encouragements
4. Words of praise
5. Words power and anointing over yourself, marriage, and over anything at all for the glory of God almighty.
Remember that anything that is not of faith is dead/sin as the bible says without faith no one can please God, all that is of faith will keep us from sin and all negativity. Christ has redeemed us from the curses of the law, believe it! Receive it! Say it! Experience it! Create it within the mind you will be a conqueror everyday of your life. Confess ‘’sin shall not have dominion over me since I am no longer under the law, I am not poor, God says He has blessed me-for this reason I am blessed. I walk and live habitually in the Holy Spirit, controlled and guided by the spirit of God. I produce the fruits of the Holy Spirit which is love, joy, gladness, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and many other good things that come from God. I therefore do not overcome evil with evil instead, I overcome evil with good by the spirit of the most high that dwelleth in me, I am a joint-heir with Christ-I am over a billion times more than a billionaire.’’ By saying these words over and over again, they begin to work for His words cannot return void until it accomplishes it task that is your breakthrough. Amen
To all unbelievers (anyone who has not accepted Christ as his/her personal savior):
Will you admit you are a sinner? Do you want to be forgiven and your life changed? Will you humble yourself and pray to God right now, asking Jesus Christ to save you? ‘’that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.’’ (Romans 10:9). ‘’wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.’’ (Hebrews 7:25).
RUN FOR YOUR SALVATION NOW!!!!!!!!
Say this prayer;
‘’Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross to take away my sins. I am sorry for all the wrong things I have done. I ask you to please come into my heart and live in my heart forever. I am trusting you right now to make my heart clean and I take you to be my very own Lord and Saviour. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! YOU ARE A BELIEVER NOW!
