Listening with Intentional Purpose, Revelations 2:7
Lion of Judah Worship Center Ministries, Pastor E. C. Dowdy
In Revelations, chapter two, verse seven we read: “He that has ears to hear, let him hear what the Spirit is speaking to the churches. To him who overcometh, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God.”
This verse is set in the midst of the word to the seven churches, the words contain warnings about what is needful to achieve the full measure of righteousness. They were told of the things that were pleasing, but warned of the things that were needful. The verse that speaks of hearing ears is repeated in part in verse eleven.
We cannot escape the warning in verse four: “You have left your first love!” Does the fire of love and dedication still burn as brightly as it did in the beginning of your walk with Him? Have we permitted complacency and lethargy to dampen our light? In Matthew, we hear Jesus saying the almost exact same thing: if you have ears to hear, then listen to what the Spirit of the living God is speaking this day. Don’t assume what you heard through the grapevine is factual, without additives, and genetic modification.
The eyes of God are moving across this planet, when they come our way, let us be ready. We have purified our hearts, our hands are clean, we have not given the members of our bodies as instrument of unrighteousness. We have hearing ears, and know the voice of the Spirit.
Listen now: The service has been separated into three parts, like a delectable meal prepared specially for you. Be blessed!
Healing and Deliverance
Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, 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
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
