Power with Scripture

Say:” This is my Bible. It contains God’s Holy Word. It has the power to set me free and make me free indeed. This is my moment to break through in supernatural power. The Word is alive; Kobus is anointed to teach and I am anointed to hear. My ears are open, my heart receptive. In Jesus Name, I am a powerhouse.”

Luke 1:27 (KJV) And he appeared to a girl never having been married and a virgin engaged to be
married to a man whose name was Joseph; a descendant of the house of David; and the girl’s
name was Mary.

:28 and he came to her and said; Hail, O favored one … The Lord is with you. Blessed (favored of
God) are you before all other women.

:29 But when she saw him she was greatly troubled and disturbed and confused at what he said
and kept revolving in her mind what such a greeting might mean.

:30 And the angel said to her, Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found grace (free, spontaneous,
absolute favor and loving kindness) with God.

:31 and listen, You will become pregnant and will give birth to a Son and you shall call His name

:32 He will be great and He will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give to
Him the throne of His forefather David,

:33 And He will reign over the house of Jacob throughout the ages; and of His reign there will be
no end.

:34 And Mary said to the angel, How can this be since I have no [intimacy with any man as a]

:35 Then the angel said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you and the power of the Most High
will overshadow you [like a shining cloud] and so the Holy [pure, sinless] Thing (Offspring) which
shall be born of you, will be called the Son of God.

Just for interest sake: The Bible says in Luke 24:49 You shall be clothed with power when the Holy
Spirit comes upon you. Acts 1:8 says: And you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon
you. Rom 1:8 says: All those that are led by the Holy Spirit, they are the sons of God.

When the Holy Spirit came upon Mary, the Holy Thing that was born of her was called the Son of
God. So, when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you are born of God and you are called son of God.

So you are supposed to be a powerhouse of the Most High God.

:36 And listen: Your relative Elizabeth, in her old age, has also conceived a son and this is now the
sixth month with her who was called barren.

:37 For with God nothing is ever impossible and no Word from God shall be without power or
impossible of fulfillment.

I read a translation that says no Word of God will ever be void of power. No Word of God will ever
be empty of power. If I believe this Book in my hand (the Bible) is God’s Word and not just a dead
letter, then every word I read there is from God.

And this holy angel Gabriel said: ‘No word from God will ever be without power.’ Like the translation
I read: ‘No Word of God will ever be void/empty of power.’ It is impossible for the Word of God to
be without power. So when I read it, it is power; when I speak it, it is power.

Whitfield was shortsighted, he struggled with eyesight. He had the greatest revivals ever. He wrote his sermons out and read it by candle-light. He had to keep the Bible 6 inches from his
nose and read his sermons out, word for word, to crowds of 40 – 50 000 people; without amplification systems. And he read his sermons, never looking up. About 5 – 10 minutes into his sermon people would start falling under the power of God and screaming for grace; he never looked up, he just read his sermons, because every Word of God has enough power in it to bring itself into fulfillment. There is no Word of God that will be without power.

But power is something that we see, so I want to say the Word must be empowered. In other words:
my speech must be in the Spirit. It means the scriptures must be with a demonstration. If it’s not, I
didn’t read the Word of God, I was just reading a dead letter.

It’s going to be great! It’s going to be simple! It’s going to be easy! But it’s going to be for all of us.
Matt 22:29 (KJV) Jesus answered and said to them, you do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the
power of God.

James 1:15-16 (KJV) says: do not err my beloved brethren. Every good gift and every perfect gift
comes from above. From the Father of lights with whom there is no variableness, neither shadow of
turning. So, do not err. God is a giver of good gifts and perfect gifts. Do not err! You do err because
you do not know the scriptures, nor the power of God. So God combines the scriptures with the
power of God. No Word of God will be without power. No Word of God will be without power!
Remember when Jesus started teaching, when He came out of the desert (Luke 4:10), full of the
Spirit. Jesus was driven to the wilderness and with the power of the Spirit He came out of the
wilderness and (V18) He entered the synagogue, He opened the scriptures, found a place where it
was written: ‘The Spirit of the Lord was upon me.’, in the book of Isaiah 61. He said: ‘This day the
scripture is fulfilled in your ears,’ and He sat down. The next word says He walked out and a demonpossessed man met Him. He said: ‘Come out of Him!’ and they said: ‘What manner of man is this?

His teaching is not like the Pharisees, He teaches with power.’

So the teaching is always combined with power. Power is always combined with the teachings.
When Jesus opened His mouth to speak, there was always power manifested, because no Word of
God shall be without power.

When we stand up and read a scripture, is there power therein? Believe it! So when you read a
scripture, believe there is power, this Word will not be without power.

One of the greatest outpourings of the Holy Ghost in the Roman Catholic Churches happened like this:

Every year at Easter, they read the same message, all around the world. This is what they

And..the..Holy Spirit..fell..on..them..all..and..they..were..all..filled..with..the..Holy Spirit.
Now one year, a priest stopped reading and it was as though the Holy Spirit said to him:
‘Read it again.’ But he has been reading it for over 20 years, every Easter. He read: And the
Spirit .. of the Lord .. fell on them all .. and they were filled .. with the .. He stopped and said:
And the Spirit of the Lord fell on them all and they were actually filled. They were actually
filled with the spirit!!

The Holy Spirit came into that Catholic Campus and everybody was slain in the Holy Ghost,
after years and years of deadness, because no Word of God shall be without power.

Don’t read it like a dead book, read it like living letters.
Luke 2 (KJV) Jesus is with His parents at the temple area. Now they’re going back and after 3 days
they found out that Jesus was not with them.

:45 And when they found Him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking Him

:46 And it came to pass, that after 3 days they found Him in the temple sitting in the midst of the
doctors, both hearing them and asking them questions.

:47 And all that heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers. Some translations
would say His understanding of the scriptures.

:48 And when they saw Him they were amazed: and His mother said unto Him, Son, why has thee

Your Father and I have sought thee … And he said to them,

:49 How is it that you sought me? Wist you not that I must be about my Father’s business?

What was He busy with? The scriptures! Asking, questioning, answering, telling them and showing
them out of the scriptures. And when they were all amazed about His understanding of the
scriptures, He said: ‘This is my Father’s business; I must be with my Father’s business.’

Take your Bible, kiss it and say: This is Father’s business.

This is Jesus again, talking to them about John the Baptist. He is telling them something. He said:
John 5:35 (KJV) He was a burning and a shining light; and you were willing for a season to rejoice in
his light.

Now stop there for a moment.

In Matt 11:2-3 and in Luke 7 there is a story of John the Baptist being in prison to be beheaded by
Herod. Remember the story? John send to Jesus: Are You the one that was to come or do we
look/wait for another? Jesus said: Go show John what you see and what you hear. Don’t go tell him,
go show him. Go show John what you see and what you hear: The blind see, the deaf hear, the dead
are raised and to the poor the gospel is preached. And blessed is he that is not offended of me.

And then Jesus went on and said: What did you see in the desert? A reed swaying in the wind? I’ll
tell you more than that.

Then He went on … but I’ll tell you what a prophet, no, more than a prophet he was. He said: There
was not a greater man / woman born than John, but the smallest in the kingdom is greater than John
the Baptist. Matt 11:1

Now Jesus was talking to them in John 5:38 (KJV) He said: For a time you were happy to be
enlightened with the light that John brought you.

Do you get my line of the story?

John 5:36 (KJV) For I have greater witness than that of John. For the works which the Father has
given me to finish…

… the same works do I do, and they bear witness of me, that the Father has sent me.
Just write there: John 20:21 (KJV)

After Jesus breathed on the disciples He said: As the Father has sent me, even so I send you. No
different sending, no different anointing, no different calling. The Bible says in John 3:34 (KJV) Jesus
had the Spirit without measure. So we’re not going for double-portions, we’re not going for
measures; we don’t go for the double-portions of Elijah. That’s an Old Testament story.

We have the Spirit without measure and the anointing that you have received of Him abides in you
and you do not need that anyone should teach you about the anointing, because this anointing is in
you. CHRIST IN YOU! The hope of the glory. This is the life that we live now. ‘As the Father has sent
me, so send I you. If you have seen me, you have seen the Father. The works that I do is not my own
works, the words that I speak are not my own words; it is the words of Him that has sent me.

Greater than John is here, and the works, the power and the proof that I’m sent of God.’ As the
Father has sent me … bam-biddy-bam-bam … So send I you! Phew … Receive the Holy Ghost!
Second breath of the second man-creation … Let’s go on before I get carried away.

:37 … you have neither heard his voice at any time, nor has seen His shape.

:38 And you have not His Word abiding in you: for whom He has sent, Him you believe not.

:39 Search the scriptures; for in them you think you have eternal life: and they are they which
testify of me.

He just said in Matt 22:29 You do err, because you do not know the scriptures, nor the power of

Now He said to the Pharisees and Scribes: ‘You go and search the scriptures.’ He didn’t command
them and said: ‘Go, search the scriptures!’ No, He said: ‘You go and search the scriptures because
you think in them you can find eternal life. But you don’t come to me, for I testify of what is written
in the scriptures.’

Every Word; Jesus is the word made flesh; He is the Living Word that was sent.

Now we are born-again, 1 Pet 1:23, not by corruptible things, but we are born-again by incorruptible
seed, by the Ever Living Word of God. So we are the word made flesh. So no word of God will be
without power. No Word of God will be without power! No Word of God will be without power!!
Realize you are born-again. SONS OF GOD!! So if the word speaks the Word, there’s got to be power.

Why is it that we, glory to God, do not have the problems that most churches have? We don’t have
counseling and people don’t come to us with this problem and that. We just don’t have it! Why?
Because people come and they say: ‘That Word that you preached today, while you were speaking, I
felt how I was set free! I felt that something has left me. I had this problem, now it’s gone.’
People get healed and blessed and saved and delivered and set free by the Word.

Did you know that I never prayed the sinners-prayer? I did pray it afterwards because I
found religious people. I found the Lord at the age of 7 and served Him up to the age of 14. I
never prayed for it, but after a 10 year period, at the age of 24, I came into a house and the
Word of the Lord came to me. I started crying for no reason at all, and the more I cried, the
cleaner I felt. I wanted to say thank you! I realized I had to do something, so I opened my
mouth and said: … tongues … The guy next to me said: ‘That’s unfair. I’ve been searching for
7 years to speak in tongues!’ I never searched. I found grace!

What I’m trying to say: if the Living Word reaches you, okay, more than that; if you speak the Living
Word, more than that; if you know you are the Living Word …

Kelly Varner preached a message here by us: Ed Lego My. Ever heard the word? He was looking at
children playing with Lego-blocks. Lego comes from the word logos. He said: ‘The Word, every one of
us is a portion of the Word of God. Ed Logos My. The Word of God is living in us. So that makes us
the Word of God. If we realize we are the Word and we speak the Word and no Word of God will be
without power; what’s going to happen if I put my hands on somebody!

So it is the Word, the Word, the Word! There are three-triple-manifestations of Word. I say: ‘In Jesus
Name!’ knowing that they who believe in His Name shall lay hands ………….

I believe in His Name, so I don’t search the scriptures to find eternal life, I know I have eternal life.
Now the scriptures is a powerhouse in me, to me and for me; and as I speak it and lay hands
…….Power. Power! Power!

I was saved for only 14 days and a woman that was born cripple (she had been in a
wheelchair for 72 years) got out of her wheelchair. That same night a blind lady saw, and a
woman with cataracts, her eyes opened. Lots of stuff happened. It was at a holiday resort.

Rom 15. This is a scripture that God gave me right in the beginning and I thank God, I have not
deviated from this scripture. From the day that I really got back into the kingdom of God, this was
the scripture that carried me through; even through Bible School when I was challenged on miracles
by the doctors.

:15 Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the most boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in
mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God, Are we bold enough to make such

:16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ…

The minister of Jesus Christ! That means I minister Jesus Christ. This is not the word “serve” Jesus, it
means administration; I administer Jesus Christ. When I speak I release Jesus Christ!
:16 … to the Gentiles.

:16 Ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being
sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

:17 I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God.

:18 For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to
make the Gentiles obedient by word and deed.

:19 Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem
and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel Of Christ.

How did he preach the gospel of Christ? Yes, Word and power, scriptures and Spirit, speaking and

Come on, no Word of God will be without power. If I speak, I’m releasing Jesus Christ; I’m releasing
the gospel of God. I’m releasing the very power that created the heavens and the earth, the very
power that made you to be here. That power is released when we speak, when we know it is the
Word of God that we speak.

So when we were in Bible School, we took a tour to a church. It was in August 1979 in
Standerton. We were first-year students and a third-year student preached. He preached the
most awesome word, but it was so dead. It was dead. The church was dead, the preacher
was dead, the people were dead, the building was dead, everything was dead. But above the
pulpit, against the wall, it said: “Full Gospel Church of God.” (A.A. Allan had these banners in
his tent. It said: No man can do these miracles except God be with him.) So this guy
preached and at the end he said: ‘Well, this is the full gospel, so let’s sing it tonight.’
And they sang a song that said He was wounded for our iniquities, that the chastisement of
our peace was upon Him and with His stripes we are healed. Then he sat down and one of
the doctors stood up.
He said: ‘Now this was an awesome meeting.’ And he thanked God for His presence and His
power. And I jumped up and said: ‘Where?’ I did!
The doctor said: ‘Van Rensburg, gaan sit. (Sit down).’
I pointed to the wall and said: ‘No, there it says Full Gospel; we have not seen the full
gospel! Were anybody healed today?’
He said: ‘I tell you for the second time, go sit down! The meeting is over.’
I said: ‘No, is there any sick person in the house?’
Two women came out. The one on crutches and the other one blind. So I took the crutches
away and I said to her: ‘Walk, in Jesus Name.’ and she walked. When she threw her crutches
away, there was no space left in front of that church for anybody to come in.

There was a woman in a wheelchair, which happened to be the doctor’s mother. We still
have the photos where that woman jumped out of the wheelchair. Her hand is so blurred on
the photo that it looks like lightening.
The Monday morning there was chaos at the Bible School. Everybody said: ‘Can we testify
about what happened yesterday?’
So this one doctor stood up and said: ‘We want to know nothing about Kobus van
Rensburg’s circus yesterday. It’s a gimmick, it’s a hoax, it’s not scriptural, it’s not of God!’
One of the guys stood up and he said: ‘And your mother that got out of the wheelchair? And
the blind woman’s eyes that were opened?’
He said: ‘It’s not scriptural because the order wasn’t right. The meeting was over and it
wasn’t his meeting.’ True! True! True!
And I asked: ‘Can I say something?’
He said: ‘No, no more comments.’
I said: ‘Can I please quote Rom 15?’
And this is the scripture that I quoted that day and it stuck to me till this day:

Mark 16:16 (KJV) says: Go and preach the gospel to all the nations. To them that believe and are
baptized, these signs shall follow,

:17 in my Name … We know what we shall do. We shall cast out demons, speak in tongues, we shall
lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.

:18 And they went and they preached everywhere … And God confirmed the Word, with signs and
wonders following.

Please shout: YES!!

So if we believe it was the Word, it must be confirmed. Some people ask: ‘Why do you lay hands on
people every service?’ Because He says so! Do we minister to our own people, because it is the same
crowd? I don’t care. We impart something every service. We lay hands every service. We minister
every service, why? That’s our duty. We believe!

Remember in John 8:31-32 (KJV) Jesus said to those Jews that believed in Him: ‘If you abide in mm
Word, you shall be my disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you

There is no Word from God that is without power. Come on! The Word of God is not void. Does it
make you think of Isaiah 55:10-11? So shall my word be that goeth forth from my mouth. It shall
not return to me empty but it shall do that which I sent it for and it shall be prosperous therein.

Come on! Matt 4:4 Jesus was tempted by the devil to turn the stones into bread. Jesus quoted from
Deut 8:4, He said: It is written; man shall not live of bread alone but of every Word that proceeded
from the mouth of God.

The Word of the Lord came to Elijah and said: Go show yourself to Ahab and there shall be no rain.
He said: No rain. He went to the brook called Kedron, he sat there and the ravens fed him. Then the
Word of the Lord came to him and said: Go, join yourself to the widow … and the Word of the Lord
came to him and every time he listened and said the Word …. Power. The widow’s stuff multiplied
and he stayed there for the whole drought.

The Word is with power and can’t return to God void. Take you Bible and say: This is a power-house!
Write in front of your Bible: God and Sons Incorporated Unlimited. Remember the little booklet
there in the 70’s, written by Bob ………. in the charismatic revival? God and sons Incorporated
Unlimited. You know, you go to a company and it says: Propriety Limited. In other words: this
company is limited to what the document says. Our document says: Nothing shall be impossible, it is
unlimited. Your business-agreement says: Father’s Business is unlimited. No Word shall be without

Luke 5:15 (Amp) But so much more the news spread abroad concerning Him and great crowds kept
coming together to hear [Him] and to be healed by Him. Put there in brackets: My ministry! Write
your church name there. Do it!

Say: The Word is going to spread. My fame is going to spread. Crowds are coming to hear me
and to be healed.


:16 But He Himself withdrew [into retirement] to the wilderness and prayed

:17 One of those days, as He was teaching, there were Pharisee and teachers of the Law sitting by,
who had come from every village and town of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem, ant the
power of the Lord was [present] with Him to heal them.

The fame and the stories spread, and they came from all over to hear Him and to be healed. And as
He was teaching, the power was present.

Imagine if you take what I’m speaking on, and you really believe it. When you speak the atmosphere
will be charged with power present to heal, coming forth from you; being the Word manifested,
speaking the manifested Word,

which is not without power,
which is not empty of power,
which will do what it is sent for,
which will not return void,
which shall be successful and prosperous in everything that it is sent to.

So if I lay hands on the sick, it is not just to pray for the sick; it is to heal the sick.

I remember when I got into the ministry. If they didn’t get healed, we had a whole list of what could
be wrong. “Sir, have you got unforgiveness in your heart?” (Yes, want the list? Oh, you’ll never get
healed; you must get your funeral arrangements in line.) If God must deal with us according to
unforgiveness, offences and bitterness, I wonder how many people would get something from God.

But if God deals with us according to the understanding of Hid grace, how many people would be
healed and blessed and touched. Teach the people to get offences out. Teach the people to forgive
one another. But don’t blame it on them if they are not healed. God said: “Go, heal them.” So if I
believe on speaking the Word, there’s got to be power present. That’s why we have no problem
inviting the sick. That’s why there’s 14 000 documented cripples that walked in our church, in only
10 years.

Let’s look at the life of Paul. Now this guy was the law-guy of the law-guys. Saul of Tarsus on his
horse called Horse. God knocked him down with a light brighter than the midday sun and when he
laid there God said: ‘Saul, Saul, why have you …’ Remember the story?

Acts 9:20 (KJV) And straightway he preached Christ in the synagogues; that He is the Son of God.

:21 But all that heard [him] were amazed and said: Is not this he that destroyed them which called
on this Name of Jesus, and came hither for that intent that he might bring them down under the
chief priest?

:22 But Saul increased the more in strength and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus,
proving that this is very Christ.

So Saul was preaching that He was the son of God. It could be Christ in him and he proofed that this
was very Christ. He proofed that this that he was teaching was the very Christ. He had to proof
something because this is what they said to the Pharisees: ‘If the Christ comes, will He do more than
this man?’

Shall we do the 1 Cor 2:4-6 (KJV) that we all love?

:4 My speech and my preaching [was] not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in
demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

:5 That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of man, but in the power of God.
POWER! POWER! POWER! My speech and my teaching were not with enticing words of man’s
wisdom but in demonstration of power!!

Acts 17:1 now after Paul and Silas passed through Antipolis and Apollonia, they came to
Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:

:2 And Paul entered as he usually did and for 3 Sabbaths he reasoned and argued with them from
the Scriptures,

:3 explaining and [quoting passages] setting forth the proving that it was necessary for the Christ
to suffer and to rise from the dead; and saying, This Jesus, Whom I proclaim to you, is the Christ.

Now would you refer this to 1 Cor 2 where Paul says; ‘When I spoke to you, it was not in the wisdom
of man, because it was the scriptures, and it was not without a demonstration of the Spirit of

Say: Word and power. Scriptures and Spirit. Teaching and deeds.

Acts 18:24 (Amp) Meanwhile, there was a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, who came to
Ephesus, he was a cultured and eloquent man, well versed and mighty in the scriptures.

:25 He had been instructed in the way of the Lord, and burning with spiritual zeal, he spoke and
taught diligently and accurately the things concerning Jesus. (And he began freely to speak but he
knew only the baptism of John.)

:26 But when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him with them and expounded to him the
way of God more definitely and accurately.

:28 For with great power he refuted the Jews in public [discussions], showing and proving by the
scriptures that Jesus is the Christ.

2 Tim 3:5 (KJV) more or less says this: ‘There’s people who has a form of godliness, but they deny the
power. Turn yourself away from those people.’ What will happen if we start turning our backs on the
people that don’t want to show the power of God? If we start saying: That’s not the true gospel!
Because the true gospel is: GO, TEACH AND DO! So what if we would start turning away? I’m just
asking … that’s what Paul says.

We just read that Apollos was so well trained in the scriptures and he reasoned and argued with the
people about the scriptures. Then Priscilla and Aquila came and they said: ‘Hey, you’re doing halve a
job! Let’s teach you more diligently about what you are doing. Let’s put you in the Father’s business.

You know the scriptures but you don’t have the power. You do err, because you do not know the
scriptures nor the power of God. So as they taught Apollos the true way of what he was busy doing,
the next minute he took the same scriptures but this time with power, and he proofed that Jesus is
the Christ and that He is the Messiah.

I thought it was great. It really shocked me when I read it.

Remember Acts 3:1-12? When they came to the gate Beautiful and there was this man, begging for
38 years: ‘Alms, alms!’ Peter said: ‘Such as I have, give I unto you. In the Name of Jesus Christ of
Nazareth, rise up and walk.’ Then he took him by the hand and raised him up, and as he did this, his
ankle-bones received strength, he jumped up, leaping and praising God, in the port called Solomon’s
Port. And the people were all amazed and Peter said: ‘Why do you look at us? Though that by your
own power … be known to the whole house of Israel by faith in His Name.

His Name has made this man whole.

Acts 4:1-31 (KJV) Then the Pharisee and Sadducees said: ‘This is not good, our businesses are going
to go down with the Father’s business here. So they grabbed him and brought him in front of the
board and they asked: ‘By what power and by what authority have you made this man whole?’ so
they already acknowledged that this man was whole. They already acknowledged that there was
power and authority. They already acknowledged it. And Peter said the same: ‘Faith in His Name.’
then they said: ‘We warn you!’ so Peter and John went back to the disciples and they said: ‘Trouble.
We can’t speak, let’s pray.’ They first prayed Psalm 2 and then they prayed their own words. Listen
to this: ‘Oh God, guard onto Your servants that they may speak Your Word with boldness so that
Your hand will be stretched out with signs, wonders, miracles and healings in the Name of Your Holy
Child Jesus.’

When they prayed, the place where they were together was shaken and they were all filled with the
Holy Spirit and they started speaking Word of God with boldness and with great power. The apostles
gave witness of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Come on! I think this is probably the most awesome

To take the whole thing together: “God, give us boldness to speak, because then we know Your
power will be present.”

We are going to close by reading 2 Pet 1:1-12. Take your Bible and kiss it.

This Word has the power, it is the power,
It can’t go empty, it can’t return empty.
No Word of God will be without power.
From this day, the scriptures are becoming a reality to me.
I speak the Word,
Power is present to heal.
I am a demonstration of power.

2 Pet 1:1 (Amp) Simon Peter, a servant and apostle of Jesus Christ to them that have obtained like
precious faith with, in and through the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ:

Say: I have obtained faith through Jesus Christ our Savior!

:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,

:3 according as his divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and godliness,
through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

:4 whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these you might be
partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

:5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge,

:6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

:7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

:8 For if these things be in you and abound, they make [you that you shall] neither [be] barren nor
unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

:9 But he that lacketh …
Knowledge! ‘My people perish for lack of knowledge (Isaiah 4:6)

:9 (KJV) For he that lacketh these things is blind and cannot see far off, and has forgotten that he
was purged from his old sins.

Those people that keep on going back to their past hurts.

:10 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make you calling and election sure: for if you
do these things, you shall never fail:

:11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of
our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

:12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though
you know [them] and be established in the present truth.

So the power and the knowledge will establish you in present truth. What does he say?

You can’t stick to Luther, he died 500 years ago.
You can’t stick to Wesley, he died 300 years ago.
You can’t stick to Pentecost; Seymour is dead a 100 years.

What am I trying to say? There is present truth! ‘But Kobus, it was all written 2 000 years ago.’ Yes,
then we had the dark ages where everything was covered. Then, from the 1400’s already, God
started bringing present day truth. And God revealed them little by little, and every now and then.

God drops fresh present revelations, fresh present truths. And God started bringing in salvation,
baptism, speaking in tongues, lying on of hands. God started bringing in the message of mercy and
grace. God started bringing in the power, the scriptures of God, till we have no excuse.

You all have a Bible!

Take it and say: This is the power of God. I will cherish it as that. This is my Father’s business
and I’m about my Father’s business. Thank You for giving me Your Word. (Kiss the Bible and
say: I love you, Word.)

Thank God that we have the Word of God.

Thank God for present day truths.

Thank God for fresh revelations breaking through.

Thank God that the Scripture is power.

It’s the Word of Almighty God; it’s a powerhouse in your hands!


If you read this and you think: ‘What is he talking about!’ it is a true sign that you’re not born-again.
So if you do not know Jesus Christ personally as your Savior, if you do not know that Jesus Christ is
Lord of your life, if you’re still living in sin and in the world, DON’T! Turn around. Receive Jesus as
your Savior; confess Him as your Lord.

John 1:2 Receive Him.

Rom 10 Confess Him.

1 Pet 1:18 Be washed in the Blood.

:24 Be born-again by the Word of God.

Pray this prayer with me:

Heavenly Father, I come in Jesus Name and I want to receive Him as my personal Savior and make Him Lord of my life. Lord Jesus Christ, right now on this … (put in today’s date) … I receive Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. My past sin is now forgiven and forgotten, because of a great, gracious God. Right now, wash me, cleanse me and redeem me by Your precious blood. I now confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and I make Him Lord and King of my life.

I am now taken out of darkness and I’m translated into the kingdom of God’s Son. I’m taken into the glorious light right now. By the Word of God I’m getting born-again. The old has just passed away, everything has just been made new.I am a Christian, born-again, washed in the Blood by grace and not by works.

If you prayed this prayer, I declare:

Your sins are forgiven.

You are clean before God.

You have a new life.

Your past does not exist anymore.

You are a new creation in Jesus Christ!

Welcome to the family of Almighty God!

Now, for all the Christians, say:

Heavenly Father, thank You that we can call You Father.
Because of the Spirit of the Son is in me, I am a child of the Most High God.
I’m about the Father’s business.
Thank You, the Word is the Father’s business and I am sent of God to speak and do, to reveal
the Scriptures and produce the proof that Jesus Christ is truly the Lord of ALL!
Thank You that I have right now the privilege and the honor to do it.
Right now I pray that You will give me a love for the Scriptures, the Living Word of God, the
written Word of God, the spoken Word of God; like never before.
Thank You that I am chosen and called of the power to be a powerhouse, to speak the
power and to release the power, in Jesus Name.
