THROUGH WHAT WE SAY
Isa 49:2 NKJV
And He has made My mouth like a sharp
sword; In the shadow of His hand He has
hidden Me, and made Me a polished shaft; in
His quiver He has hidden Me."
God often speaks to us through our mouths, therefore we
need to listen to what we speak.
Once I was struggling with the fact that the Lord was
telling me no about a certain situation. Yet, I still
was asking for His “yes” at every opportunity. After my
approaching the Lord for the umpteenth time, my son came
into the room and asked me for something. I had already
told my son no. My voice was stern as I said, “You are
arguing with me.” The Holy Spirit allowed me to hear my
words; I had been arguing with God.
God often speaks to us through our mouths, therefore we
need to listen to what we speak. Sometimes, He will
even speak the answers to questions we have asked Him.
During one particular time in my life, circumstances
were happening which I did not understand. In my
asking for answers, the Lord didn’t reply. I didn’t
understand why He wasn’t explaining. I knew two things
about that season. One, I was in school, and two, it was
a new school (spiritual school). Finally, my answer
My son had been attending first grade for about three
weeks. I asked him, “Have you noticed the teacher
doesn’t give you answers, she waits for you to answer
them yourself?” (He said no.) I said, “Teachers try to
help the children grow up by encouraging them to
discover answers.” Immediately the Holy Spirit
quickened to me this was MY answer also. The Lord was
teaching me to search and find answers based on what He
had already shared in my past.
A few years later as I was seeking to hear more from the
Lord, my son was talking about learning how to draw
comics through some comic books created by his drawing
instructor. He said when he first started reading the
comics, he read them so fast he missed a lot of
details. I said, “The sign of maturity is when you
begin to analyze things.” Immediately, I knew what I’d
said was a quickened Word from the Lord to myself. If I
digested and internalized what He had already given me,
then I would be ready to hear more from Him.
HE SPEAKS THROUGH
Faith is the creative element
that dispatches forces
with assignment in the unseen world.
The Bible says our mouths have creative force. “...whoever
says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the
sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that
those things he says will be done, he will have whatever
he says. (Mark 11:23 NKJ) “…If you have faith as a
mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from
here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be
impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20 NKJ) The key
ingredient is faith.
People as a whole believe in all kinds of things,
without realizing what they believe. An example is
someone who has just been exposed to the flu. People
are ill all around her, and she says, “I just know I’m
next.” Although she doesn’t see the germ, she believes
in its potent power and verbalizes through her faith
she’s going to get it. People frequently make negative
confessions about themselves, about others, about life
and circumstances, and they speak it with much faith.
Listen to what you say. You may be dispatching the
wrong forces. You might ask, what do I do if I’ve really
GOT IT? If I “get it” I speak the truth: “I’m fighting
a germ right now!” (The truth is I’m fighting the germ
physically and spiritually through resistance in Jesus
Name.) If I think I am coming down with something, I
don’t say, “I’m coming down with something” because that
is a statement of faith saying I am receiving an
illness. Rather, I again say, “I’m fighting a germ.”
The power of the spoken word is a very serious matter.
Listen to what you speak.

Prov 18:20-21 NKJV
A man's stomach shall be satisfied from the
fruit of his mouth; From the produce of his
lips he shall be filled.
Death and life are in the power of the
tongue, and those who love it will eat its
We need to heed the scriptural promises that we will
receive and eat the fruit of what our lips speak. This
is a very powerful warning to be accountable in the
authority we carry.
WORD O’ GRAM:
WHAT I SPEAK
When life presses in,
How do I respond?
Am I creating life or death in
The power of my tongue?
I point my words where I want to go.
Steer a horse by its bit.
Point a ship by its rudder.
Even so the course of my body
As spoken through my mouth,
Knows the fruit of what is sown.
Out of the abundance of my heart, I speak many words.
What I say has the power to defile my temple or bless
it. My words set the natural course of my body towards
fiery death or abundant life. My words can set my health
towards the destructive fire of the demonic. My words
will justify me or condemn me. My words can bring
sweetness to my soul and health to my bones. What do I
want to say today?
James 3:1-12 NKJV
My brethren, let not many of you become teachers,
knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment. 2
For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does
not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also
to bridle the whole body. 3 Indeed, we put bits in
horses' mouths that they may obey us, and we turn
their whole body. 4 Look also at ships: although
they are so large and are driven by fierce winds,
they are turned by a very small rudder
wherever the pilot desires. 5 Even so the tongue is
a little member and boasts great things. See how
great a forest a little fire kindles! 6 And the
tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue
is so set among our members that it defiles the
whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature;
and it is set on fire by hell. 7 For every kind
of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the
sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind. 8 But
no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil,
full of deadly poison. 9 With it we bless our God
and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been
made in the similitude of God. 10 Out of the same
mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren,
these things ought not to be so. 11 Does a spring
send forth fresh water and bitter from the same
opening? 12 Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear
olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring
yields both salt water and fresh.

But I say to you that for every idle word men
may speak, they will give account of it in
the day of judgment. For by your words you
will be justified, and by your words you will

much easier through the realm of the sword of the

do the same thing. This really is a new way of thinking

decree the natural results as I walk things out in
What does it mean to decree? A decree is an
announcement. It is simply a statement of faith
announcing something will happen. It is speaking
something that is not seen in the natural realm, into
existence. Decreeing is a proclamation with the
understanding that we have been given power and
influence in the words we speak. As we become more
consecrated in what we speak, we receive greater
authority and greater accountability. Angels go forth
on our decrees and God’s kingdom comes to earth as it is
declared or decree in heaven.
Heb 4:12 NKJV
For the word of God is living and powerful, and
sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to

Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing

on the peoples; To bind their kings with chains, And
their nobles with fetters of iron; To execute on
them the written judgment — This honor have all His
saints. Praise the LORD!

I was reminded of Bobby Conner’s testimony when many
years ago the Lord gave him a vision of a gunman that
was about to shoot Bobby. When the vision actually
literally happened a few minutes later, Bobby was
stunned and the Lord told Bobby to decree what he wanted
to happen, because his life depended upon it.
So Bobby started binding and rebuking the demonic
spirits, and decreeing the results of a several hour
stand off between the police and gunman. It saved
Bobby’s life, and the gunman ended up coming out of the
water without shooting anyone and without being shot. It
was an amazing play-by-play testimony of the power to
decree, because as each circumstance played out to catch
the man, whatever Bobby decreed ended up happening
between the police and the man.
When the police would make a decision and give an order,
the Lord would whisper to Bobby, “Is that what you want
to happen?” Bobby would see it through the eyes of
wisdom and say “No.” So the Lord would encourage him to
decree exactly what he wanted to happen in each
circumstance. It was an amazing testimony of the power
and authority He has given to decree and His power to
back our Words.

Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be

BINDING THE FREE
WILL OF MEN;
It is important to use the power to decree only
according to the will of God as it lines up with
scripture. Both new age and witchcraft use this same
tool for the power of evil by not honoring the free will
of men, but rather controlling it.
We need to understand the way the Father has set up His
kingdom. His kingdom reigns with volunteer love and free
will. He created every being with free will and one
third of His creation betrayed Him and were cast out.
Because the Father is the purest form of love, He knows
that to demand it, command it, or enforce it does not
create a family. It creates slaves to a Master. Free
will is VERY, very important to His heart, to His
kingdom and to the principal in which He has set up His
government in heaven and on earth.
Many have a hard time understanding the Sovereignty of
God, when balancing the free will of man, but He does
indeed cause His plan to unfold in spite of free will.
Nothing or no one can impede His plan from coming to
He taught me the understanding of man’s free will these
last 20 years when He would deliberately put me with
people who stood in the way of His calling upon my life.
The Lord would tell me these things ahead of time and I
walked through these seasons with great intercession and
heartache. He taught me what it really means to be a
servant, to have His purest love in the face of unbelief
and rejection and to not defend myself but to lay low
and not argue or use man’s ways to try to enforce,
control or change their mind-sets.
I learned that it is in the hand of God to either defend
His servants, or let them die. I learned that it is in
the hand of God to allow any and everything that comes
our way in order to equip us for what we need to know
and what we are yet to face. I learned that anything and
everything that He allows finally resolves with His
absolute justice. I learned that His mercy pays for our
mistakes, and His grace brings us recompense for every
loss we suffer, when going through death to self. If I
had to walk through what I have suffered in order to
learn these things as my foundation in knowing Him, I
would make the same choices all over again. I paid a
dear price to learn these truths. These things have
become my foundations in knowing His nature and heart.
So I say all the above for a purpose.
There is a weed, a misunderstanding, a deception, that
has crept into the authority practiced by intercessors.
This deception is the practice of binding another’s will
to the will of God which is thought to be a practice of
binding another’s will to good things, for good
purposes. Beloved ones, this goes directly against the
heart of Who He is. If the Lord God does not bind our
wills, then we do not have that right either. This
practice is using unauthorized authority and power. The
practice of binding another’s will is pure witchcraft in
its purest form.
Matthew 7:21-26 NLT
"Not all people who sound religious are really
godly. They may refer to me as 'Lord,' but they
still won't enter the Kingdom of Heaven. The
decisive issue is whether they obey my Father in
heaven. On judgment day many will tell me, 'Lord,
Lord, we prophesied in your name and cast out demons
in your name and performed many miracles in your
name.' But I will reply, 'I never knew you. Go away;
the things you did were unauthorized. Anyone who
listens to my teaching and obeys me is wise, like a
person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the
rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and
the winds beat against that house, it won't
collapse, because it is built on rock. But anyone
who hears my teaching and ignores it is foolish,
like a person who builds a house on sand. When the
rains and floods come and the winds beat against
that house, it will fall with a mighty crash."
The entire spiritual world is based upon gaining the
will of men. We are caught between the 2 forces of the
kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of darkness. They are
both doing everything to draw us. It is a fight for
eternity and we are the prize. One is the kingdom of
love, the other is the kingdom of force.
My dear ones, if you have misunderstood and prayed these
kinds of prayers, please confess this, repent of it, and
then use the authority God has given you to UNDO the
chains and enforcements you have done through
unauthorized decrees. Use your authority to loose the
bands of witchcraft you placed upon your loved ones, and
those you have prayed for and set them free!
Instead of binding their wills, loose the angels of God
to fight for the souls of those who are not serving the
Lord, and loose their hearts to be melted by His love.
Forgive their sins and loose to them the gift of
Please for your own sakes and for the sake of your loved
ones, undo the practice of binding man’s free will. This
does not represent our Papa. He wants faithful children
who will rule and reign in His Name. He wants their
faithfulness to be tried and culled through the fires of
this life, so that those who remain will be with Him for
eternity. He truly, truly wants a family of volunteer
Here is the scripture and the Greek.
Matt 16:18-19 NKJV
And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on
this rock I will build My church, and the gates of
Hades shall not prevail against it. And I will give
you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever
you bind on earth will be bound in heaven,
and whatever you loose on earth will be
loosed in heaven."
Note that in context, it is talking about binding
the gates of hell, not the will of man. We tie up,
bind the enemy and we destroy his ties or bonds upon
NT:1210 deo (deh'-o); a primary verb; to bind (in
various applications, literally or figuratively):
KJV - bind, be in bonds, knit, tie, wind. See also

(literally or figuratively):
KJV - break (up), destroy, dissolve, (un-) loose,
melt, put off. Compare NT:4486.
Luke 13:12-13 NKJV
But when Jesus saw her, He called her to Him and
said to her, "Woman, you are loosed from your
infirmity." And He laid His hands on her, and
immediately she was made straight, and glorified
Above all other role models and standards that we are
being presented today, we must not deter from the
standard of Jesus Christ. Jesus did not bind the free
will of men. He alone was and remains our standard of
truth. He walked the way, He walked the truth and He
walked the life. He was and is and always will be the
way, the truth and the life. Do not be deterred from the
simplicity that is in Christ Jesus. (John 14:6; I Cor
Abba, please open our eyes to see Your attributes as You
are. Let us repent of our blindness and walk in love.

instead follow after the example that You sent to us,
