‘RECEIVING’ AND ‘MANIFESTATION’!

Jul 15, 2021

There’s some time lapse between you saying Amen and the manifestation of your prayer. The biggest challenge of a believer is what to do during this time. That’s where the greatest battle lies!.

And Peter, remembering, said to Him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away.”…Mark 11:21

Jesus said to Peter, have faith in God…Mark 11:22.

The Hebrew interpretation is ‘have the faith of God!.’ (also see Galatians 2:20)

Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them…Mark 11:24.

There’s a great difference between the ‘Receiving’ and the ‘Having!’.

You first receive it before you can have it!. Having is the ‘manifestation’, whereas receiving is the ‘amen’ to prayer!.

God always starts by doing it in the spirit realm before it is manifested in the physical realm.

Don’t let go of what God has already done for you because your eyes don’t see it and your ears don’t hear it yet.

Genesis 2:17…for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”

When Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit something immediately happened in their spirits. Adam realized that the glory had lifted off his life. He immediately died in the spirit yet physically he died 900 years later.

It first takes place in the spirit then manifestation comes later in the physical.

Likewise with prayer. You first receive in the spirit then manifest it in the physical.

The moment you know you have received it in the spirit, the physical is obvious. The question is, what do you do between the ‘Amen’ and the ‘having’ when your physical ears and eyes don’t hear or see it yet?
That is where most believers lose the battle!.

You bring forth fruit with patience…Luke 8:15.

The moment you settle it in your heart that you have received, before the manifestation, you need to stay in faith, speaking the word of God!.

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful…Heb 10:23

When contrary thoughts and feelings come to you, you counter them with the word!. You continuously speak the word of God!.

“With our tongue, we will prevail;…Psalms 12:4

Death and life are in the power of the tongue,…Prov 18:21

Many of us have reversed the answers to our prayers by speaking negatively over what we have received, we speak doom and fail the manifestation!.

Jesus took the blind man out of the town. And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything…And he said, “I see men like trees, walking.” Then He put His hands on his eyes AGAIN and made him lookup. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly…Mark 8:22-25

The keyword is “Again!”

During creation, God spoke on all the days until all He had on His mind was manifested. He kept on speaking until what he wanted was fully manifested!. That is the key to manifestation!.

When you have registered a Yea and Amen in your heart, to get the manifestation in the material world, you must keep the word of God on your lips!.

By His stripes, you were healed…1 Pet 2:24

After prayer, even if the symptoms and pain persist, you must continue speaking, “By his stripes, I am healed!” Sooner or later, the symptoms will begin to diminish until you are totally free!.

Some things go instantly whereas others may require you to continue speaking what you have received by faith!.

This is where battles are either won or lost for a believer.

Man is a talking spirit. The key to manifesting what you have received is to continue declaring it until the manifestation comes forth!.

God renamed Abram Abraham which means ‘Father’ yet he had no children!.

Speak what you have received until manifestation comes forth!.

And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak,…2Cor 4:13

You don’t speak to believe, you speak because you have believed. You are not speaking to get, you are speaking because you got. That’s faith talk!.

The reward to holding fast your confession is manifestation!.

When you say Amen to prayer, it’s a confirmation that you believe you have received. Now, from the place of prayer and receiving to manifestation you have to keep declaring!.

In our kingdom, through confession, we weed out fears and doubts!. We continue to speak the truth of God’s word regardless!.

Do not underestimate the power of your confessions between the receiving and the manifestation.

Your confessions must be consistent with what you have received by faith, no matter the symptoms!.

They that observe lying vanities forsake their own mercy…Jonah 2:8

Lying vanities are things not consistent with the word of God and what Christ did for you on the cross!

Any symptom, pain, or growth in your body becomes a lie!. It’s there but it is a lie. If you continue to observe the lies, you will lose what you have believed God for!.

Don’t keep your eyes on the enemy and his symptoms. Choose to believe the truth of God’s word and hold on to your confession!.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, PASTOR BEN OCHOLA!
