Put your hand on your Bible and say
“This is God’s Holy Word, I receive it as such. Holy men of old spoke as they were moved upon by the Holy Spirit. Then it was written down, now I can read, I can hear, I can bear fruit. Kobus is well anointed, qualified and equipped by God, to teach me revelation tonight. I have got ears to hear, eyes to see, a heart to receive, and a good life to bear good fruit, in Jesus name.”
If you want to change the scenery, you have to change the sound. It all comes down to this, before there was sight, there was sound. In Genesis 1 the earth was dark and without form, there was nothing. Then God spoke and He said, and every time God said, it was.
In Genesis 1 it was mentioned 10 times, God said and it was. God said and it was. If you want to change things around, you must do it God’s way. You’ve have to start saying what God says. You’ve got a whole book filled with awesome promises and He says, by these precious promises.
2 Peter 1 says that we can be part of God’s divine nature and God’s divine nature is Word. In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God and everything that was made, was made by this Word and without this Word was nothing made that was made. God’s nature is Word. God is Word. When God speaks He is at His best. As I said in the beginning, a knife cuts, a car drives, a chair sits and a word speaks.
1 John 5:1 …That Jesus is Christ is born of God; and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
What this scripture says is that if you are born again you would love the fact that God said to His Son: This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. You are my son, this day have I begotten you. So, if I know that I am begotten of the Father, I will love Him that is begotten of the Father. The same way Jesus is begotten, I am begotten and therefore we are one in the Son. There is no difference, we are joint heirs.
We are exactly the same as Christ, there is no difference. I got an understanding about the begat and the begat, the begotten and the begotten. As He said to Jesus: ‘That you are my Son.’, so He says to you that you are His son. As Christ is raised from the dead, you are raised from the dead, as Christ is seated at the right hand, so are you seated at the right hand and as Christ has the authority and power over everything , so have you the authority and power over everything. We have to come to a point where I come to the realisation that it must fall in my heart and it must break through.
1 John 5:2-3 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous.
This is the Love of God, that we keep His commandments. In Deuteronomy 30, repeated in Romans 10 He says: ‘This commandment that I give you today is not difficult, but it’s actually very easy. It is in your mouth to speak it! Use it in the right sense.’ The driving force is love, the working force is faith and what will operate is creation.
1 John 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world.
John 16:31-33 (KJV) Jesus answered them, do ye now believe? Behold the hour cometh, yea, is now come, that ye shall be scattered, every man to his own, and shall leave me alone: and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with me. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
He is going to the cross now, but He has already overcome the world. Nothing could withstand Him.
Not storms, He spoke to it. Not winds, He just spoke to them. Not people in a tomb, He just called them out. And not people in stretchers, He said to them, ‘Rise up.’ He just spoke and things happened. Prophet has overcome the world and no matter what came against Him, He overcame the world . Be of good cheer, He has overcome. If I come out of the tomb, this is what I am going to say to you: ‘All authority in heaven and in earth has been given unto me. Now you go in this authority and power, so you can do the same stuff. ‘
1 John 5:4 (AMP) …and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith.
Over comer! (i.e. me) He says that this is how we are going to live the overcoming world. It is by our faith. So, we have to take the faith in the light we are speaking about, otherwise we are going to miss the whole thing. This is the victory that overcame the world, even our faith.
This is our faith: 2 Corinthians 4:13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.
Romans 10:6 But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, say not in thine heart, who shall ascend into heaven?
As it is written: We believe, therefore we speak. There are people that don’t speak. Use your mouth, speak, say the right stuff, say you got a word, take the promises and say it!
Why would Jesus commend on the centurion and said so great faith has He not found, no, not in the whole house of Israel. So, why would Jesus commenter him like that, because here comes this man, here comes Jesus. Now Jesus is the Word made flesh. Revelation 1, the revelation of Jesus Christ who is the Word. Therefore the revelation of Jesus Christ is that He is the Word. Revelation 19, He is riding a white horse, He has got a name and that name is called: The Word.
Therefore, here comes the Word in flesh, which is Him who said: ‘Let there be light,’ and it was. Here comes all creation’s power in flesh. Here stands the centurion: “Oh my goodness, there is the Word in flesh. This is the One who says and the storms and waves go lie down. My servant is sick.” He speaks, let’s go. He said to Him: ‘No, if You are the Word and Your divine nature is to speak and then things happen, speak the Word only!’ So, here is the Word challenged to say the Word. Therefore, when the Word is at its best, it can only speak a word. Therefore, when the word speaks a word, all of Creation’s power that said: ‘Let there be light.’ is again there.
Then Jesus said: ‘So great a faith I have not found, no, not in the whole house of Israel.’
Why? It’s because He knows that the Word can only speak the Word and then the Word is at its best.
Jesus added something. He said: ‘The words that I speak are not my words, but it’s the words of Him who sent me.’ He repeated it over and over in John; it’s the words of my Father.
If I speak, it’s not me, it’s the Father in me that speaks. Jesus then said: ‘The Father and I are one. I can do nothing of myself, the works that I do are not my works, and it’s the works of the Father. The words that I speak over and over are not my words; it is the words of the Father that sent me. The Father and I are one. If you have seen me, you have seen the Father; if I speak it’s the Father, because the Father and I are one. Therefore, the words that I speak, that I have been challenged to now, speak over the centurions, is not my words, but the words of the Father. I come from the Father. Again, I go back to the Father. What will you do if you see me go back to where I was before? Because I came out of the Father, I go back to the Father. ‘
1 John 5:5-6 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is he that came by water and blood, [even] Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood, and it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
So, here we have the Father and the Son. The Son is called The Word. I can do nothing except the Father that does it through me. The words that I speak, is actually not me, but it is actually the Father. Then He said: ‘It is going to be the Spirit that’s going to be the witness. So, by the end of the day, I am going back to the Father, but you must be glad that I am going back to the Father.
Therefore you are not going to see me anymore, because if I am getting into the unseen, I am going to give you the Holy Spirit. Now, He is going to be the One that’s going to speak. He is going to be the Witness, because I am going back to the Father. If you do not understand this, you are always going to look around. You must be very glad I am going to the Father, otherwise the works that I do you cannot do. But, if I go and I send Him, then the works I do you will also do, because the Father and I are one, but we are going back and away from here. But, the One that made me what I am, He is actually the Spirit. God is Spirit.’
What hovered over the water in Genesis 1? It was the Spirit, so from which realm did God speak?
Did He speak from a bodily realm, or a spirit realm? He spoke from the spirit realm. Therefore, the Spirit had to come into a man to make the Word flesh, to show us how He operates. But then He departed again so that we can now by faith, because we believe, know that there is something that happened to us, which is called the Spirit of God. Now, I speak from the Spirit, the words of the Almighty God that was spoken, then written. Now I can read and speak, and it is the exact same results if I know. This is the victory that overcame the world, even our faith.
What is the context? It is that He is going to get you a Witness. It’s going to be the Spirit.
1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven… Now remember the revelation of Jesus Christ. God gave unto His angel to reveal unto His servant John concerning the Word and John bear record. Concerning what? The Word, whose name is Jesus. He calls Him the Word because He is the Word if He is not in flesh. The Father, The Word and The Spirit. Which words did Jesus speak? He spoke the words of the Father.
Who is the Father? John 4:24 God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship him in spirit and in truth. So who is God? It is the Spirit. But, how does He operate? He operates through the Word. ‘So be glad that I go, then I’ll send you the Spirit.’ So if you have the Spirit, what do you have? You have the Word and what must you speak? You must speak the Word. Then who is in operation? It is the Divine Nature, the Creative God.
1 John 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
Psalm 29 says the voice of the Lord is upon the waters, the voice of the Lord is upon many waters, the voice of the Lord breaketh the Lebanon.
Genesis 1:2-3 … and the Spirit of the Lord hovered upon the face of the waters and God said…
2 Peter says wilfully people forget that everything exists in and out of water. So if my body is two 2/3rds of water and this earth is 2/3rds water and the voice of the Lord is upon the water and the water is in agreement with the Spirit and in agreement with the blood, and it says I have been redeemed by the precious blood, from all the useless, fruitless way of living that I’ve inherited from forefathers. Why do I consult forefathers’ spirits if I have been redeemed from it?
Hebrews 12:22-24 says that the blood of Jesus speaks of better things than the blood of Able. The blood of Able called for revenge, the blood of Jesus says: ‘Redemption, justification!’
1 John 5:9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater:
I want you to take witness. What does the witness do? He speaks. We are busy with speaking. We are busy with God’s is Word, God’s got a voice.
… For this is the witness of God, which He hath testified of His Son. He that believeth on the Son of God, we have the witness in Himself.
So, what is in me? The Father, the Word (Son) Christ, Holy Spirit, Blood and Water. If this is the witness, that makes me a partaker of the DNA (divine nature of the Almighty God).
1 John 5:10 He that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of His Son. In other words, if I don’t believe that, I say God lies. The challenge is out, if I can’t receive that, then I say God is a liar.
Say: ‘I receive the Witness, the blood has cleansed me, redeemed me, washed me and I’ve got no inheritance from my forefathers. My inheritance is jointed with Jesus Christ, the divine nature of the Almighty, joint heir with Jesus Christ.’
Well, that was the commandment. Deuteronomy 30 says this commandment that I give you today is not difficult, and it’s in your mouth. What is the commandment? It is repeated in Romans 10; don’t say who shall go to heaven to bring Christ down. It’s not in hell that you say who should bring Christ up, no. It is in your mouth. Deuteronomy 30 says, and here it is that I give you a choice between blessings and curses, life and death, so you choose.” But, look at you Kobus.” ‘Well, I still choose life.’ T.D. Jakes says it so nice: There are other people that did not make it up to here. Choose; fight the good fight of faith. This is what we are busy with. Lay hold on eternal life. How do you do it? You do it by speaking!
Ephesians 3:14, “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ…”
In other words: you are praying. What is your prayer for us tonight brother Paul? Well, let‘s listen to the prayer:
Ephesians 3:16 That He would grant you, according to His riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man;
:17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith…
:19 And to know the love of Christ (the commandment), which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.
1 John 5:10-12 He that believeth in the Son of God hath the witness in himself: And this is the record that God hath given to us eternal life and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath life; [and] He that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
Why? Because John 1 In Him was life and the life was the light of men. Why did Jesus come, to give you what? Life! God gave His only begotten Son so that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. So why should people preach abundant death? At the end of every meeting they say: ‘If you die tonight.’ That’s not the message of this Book. The message is: ‘If you want to live, would you raise your hand.’ The message is not if you want to die raise your hand.
For years the people have been scared to death by death. ‘If you go out this door tonight and a car runs over you, where are you going to spend eternity? ‘That’s not scripture. The scripture is: ‘If you want to have eternal life…’ This whole witness and bear record thing about the Father, the Son, and the Blood etc.
Jesus stands in John 8 with the Pharisees; He’s now going to tell them if His word abides in them and they abide in Him. So He talks to them about witnessing, He says that there are two witnesses:
‘But Kobus, there is a lot there.’ ‘Yes, but you can break them down.’ It comes down to the same thing for those who never heard. He says that He is one of the two that bear witness; my Father is the other one. But He says in John 8: I am one of the two that bear witness or that bear record. My Father is the other one.
Then He says in Hebrews 6 and 7 twice, God said to Abraham long before there was laws and stuff: ‘In blessing I’m going to bless you and in multiplying I will multiply you.’ Because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by himself. Then He goes and says: ‘And by this reason it’s impossible for God to lie because of the duel oath.’ It’s a double oath that He swore and swore.
People have all sorts of reasoning, but if you go through the Bible, God said: ‘I am Spirit, but to prove to you my love, I must come in flesh, so the flesh part I’ll call Son, but if I have a Son, then I must become Father, but I am still the same one. Therefore, if I have the Son, then I am the Father and the Son. If the Son comes back I am Spirit again, but if I’m there , I’m the Father’s Son and then I have to put the Spirit on the Son to let them see how I operate. So I’ll be Father, Son and Spirit.
But, then we go back and I’ll try to say this is how we swear. I’ll have the Son and He will swear. I can only say what the Father says and the Father says I put my words in your mouth.
Hebrews 7:28, 6:18, John 8:17-18.
Let’s close with the last two verses.
1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God that you may know that ye have eternal life…
Now John says: ‘I, John was on the isle of Patmos.’ Here comes the angle and says: ‘John, the revelation of Jesus Christ. This angle is going to bear record about the Word. Write, John!’ Blessed is he that reads, blessed is he that hears and blessed is he that keeps the word about the Name of the Son of God, which is the Word.
1 John 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God that you may know that ye have eternal life… So what must you know? You must know eternal life. You must see how many times he repeats it in John. Why must you know eternal life?
Verse 13 … and that you believe in the Son of God. What is His name? His name is the Word.
What is in this Word? There is life in the Word and what does this life bring? It brings light.
1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask anything according to his will… this is my testament. If I ask anything according to His will, take the Word will and make a testament. If I ask anything according to His testament, He hears me. And if we know that He hears us, Jesus says: ‘My Father always hears me, because I always do what He commands.’ What does He command? The words that I speak are not my words, but the words of Him who sent me. So Jesus says that if I speak, it’s His command. ‘Rise up, Lazarus come out.’
1 John 15:15 Whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.
Mark 11:22, what did I just read? Whatsoever we ask according to His will, we have whatsoever we ask, what we desire. The last words there are “desire” and “ask”.
Mark 11:22-23 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.
Did you see that the word faith is used once and the word say is used three times?
Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, what things so ever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive [them]…” When you pray, how do you pray? You pray by saying, “and ye shall have [them ].
Amen. So if you ask anything according to His will… ‘He took the bread and said: ‘This is my will.
This is the New Testament. This is my blood. This is the New Testament.’ What will we get?
Everything we desire. What must we do? We must say it.
Say: ‘Father, forgive me all that negative stuff that came out of my mouth.’
How many things are happening in your life now that you spoke 10 years ago? How would you wish you could just change it all? You can right now by saying: ‘Sorry’ and it’s gone and start all over again.
Take your Bible and say
I’m going to say what God said, so I’m going to have what God gives. His testament, His will, and over my life if I eat this bread and drink this cup. This is what I will say: With His stripes I’m healed, I’m a prosperous, successful, happy, well person. In my life there is no fear, no destruction, no killing, no cares, no demons or devils. In my life God’s life is manifested. The resurrection life of Jesus Christ is burning on the inside of me. Oh God, you are from everlasting, I shall live and not die. I’ve got what it takes to make it. I’m more than an over comer because of the love of Jesus. I’ve got a commandment. It’s in my heart.”
