Outpacing the Kingdom of Darkness
And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. (Matthew 10:7–8).
This is what we need today to outpace the kingdom of darkness. I believe it is possible to CONVERT AN ENTIRE CITY IN ONE DAY when the gospel is preached with evidence!
Jesus preached the gospel of the kingdom with demonstration and boldly declared, “If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not” (John 10:37). Wow! He was willing to put His whole ministry on the line. Personally, I like that! He taught His disciples to do the same, “And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give” (Matthew 10:7–8).
Here is a very profound statement, “It’s always the witness with proof that convinces the court.” The witness is the Word of God with signs and wonders, and the court is the heart of every unbeliever. Miracles are what convince the unbeliever that Jesus is risen from the dead; that He is alive today; that He loves and has forgiven them; and that He is Lord over every work of the devil and He’s doing the same things today, through us, as He did before He was crucified.
Dear God, I pray that as I share my faith with others, Your miracle-working anointing operating through me will demonstrate the Word of God as I speak it forth to those I meet. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
