Editors Note: Yahweh is the name G-d gave Moses when he asked Him whom shall I say sent me in the bible the response was YHWH or Yahweh, I AM WHO I AM. I have learned that because the Most Highs name was so holy people did not speak it or write it. So the Most Highs “real name” may never truly be known. I have come to shy away from calling Him God, for the word God was a pagan word adapted by people of Yahweh. For complete understand Yahweh is the Great I AM and his son is Yeshua many of us use the word Jesus. They are one but separate at the same time.
The Placebo Effect
This Sunday I was blessed by Joel Osteen, I must say every time I hear the Word from mighty men and women of Yahweh I am blessed. Since faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of Yahweh, each time I hear the Word my faith increases and is confirmed. Why? Because I keep hearing the same thing over and over again, and my belief is constantly fueled, like adding more gasoline to an already burning fire! It helps my vision of what I know my life shall be and what the life of my child shall be and I keep hope alive.
Too many people are limited because their vision is limited. Your vision of yourself is your image of yourself. The Words you speak over yourself are based on your vision and your image of yourself. Since we are created in the image and the likeness of Yahweh, anything negative we speak of ourselves is not of Yahweh or from Yahweh. So what is your vision, image of yourself? Before you answer ask yourself where you are in life right now. You may be waiting on some of your vision to be manifested but are you speaking for it and believing for it or speaking against it and cancelling it out?
Joel mentioned how patients went in for knee surgery, the doctor performed the surgery on some of the patients but there were patients that the doctor gave anesthesia too and made the same incisions on their knees and the real surgery patients but he didn’t perform the surgery. A year or so later, the doctor followed up with all of the patients and they all felt improvement in their knee. He examined all the patients by x-ray and sure enough they all had become better. Why is it that the placebo patients who didn’t receive the knee surgery got better just like the patients that had received surgery? Their vision of themselves changed!
Doctors have used the placebo effect for years. Often times when patients receive placebo it is a double blind study, the doctors are unaware of who received the placebo or the real thing for the studies validity and so that the doctor doesn’t bias the results. What is going on with the placebo effect? Someone has a pain, ache or mental illness so they go to the doctor and they are prescribed a drug that helps alleviate whatever their problem is. They start taking their medicine and often times they get well and become better.
Ironically though, some of the patients are only receiving sugar pills that do nothing yet they become better. Again why? Because they believe, they have a vision in their mind that the medicine they are taking is healing them. What they really don’t understand is simply their belief in the pill, their belief that they were getting better and improving, sent signals to their brains and the brain sent signals to the body that created the atmosphere of healing. In the people’s mind, their vision told them that they were getting better.
So many of us believe that we need something outside of ourselves in order to get better, do better, or be better. Well scripture tells us without vision the people perish. Lack of vision is the cause of destruction, not lack of money, doctors, prescription or over the counter medicine. A lack of vision causes us to perish.
We’ve heard it time and time again as a man thinks so is he. So why is it that we don’t believe? Before I get those who say that we do need something outside of ourselves, no we don’t. The Kingdom of Yahweh is within you, if you were baptized the holy spirit is already within you. Now there are angels watching over you waiting to go to work on your behalf but they are activated by your thoughts manifesting into you speaking the Word of Yahweh so that the angels can go to work, so, EVERYTHING you need is already within you.
For those who maybe giving the side eye saying the placebo effect don’t always work, let’s get more biblical. We believe in Yahweh Rapha, the Lord who heals, how many people when faced with illness or sickness in their lives or someone close to them simply thanks Yahweh for their healing, confesses that by his stripes they are healed and then believes for that healing? I pray all of us, our beliefs have the POWER to draw the appropriate energy to us and others and the Word has the POWER once spoken to bring itself to pass!!!!!!!!
So what is your image, vision for yourself and your family? Is that what you are speaking? Is that what is engrained in your subconscious? Are your thoughts, actions, and words aligned to see your vision/image of yourself come to pass? I like the way Bill Winston puts it we have to get to the point where the only factor in our life is the God-factor. How can you say with Yahweh all things are possible but then you speak of impossibilities?
"When you want to do a big thing, get the mental pattern, make it perfect, know just what it means, enlarge your thought, keep it to yourself, pass it over to the creative power behind all things, wait and listen, and when the impression comes, follow it with assurance. Don't talk to anyone about it. Never listen to negative talk or pay attention to it and you will success where all others fail." Ernest Holmes
Instead of looking at what others have and have not been able to do in the natural consider Yahweh at all times, the God-factor! Consider Yahweh only. "The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment, it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone." Orison Swett Marden
STOP TALKING TO PEOPLE THAT ARE NOT WALKING AND SPEAKING FAITH AT ALL TIMES, I SAID THIS IN A PREVIOUS BLOG I DON’T CARE IF IT’S YOUR MOTHER, FATHER, PASTOR, FRIENDS, COUSINS, STOP STOP STOP……GET AROUND PEOPLE THAT ARE VISIONARIES AND DREAMERS THAT WILL SAY WITH YAHWEH ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE, THERE IS NOTHING THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE, IF YOU CAN DREAM IT AND SEE IT YOU CAN POSSESS IT AND HAVE IT, ALL IS WELL ALL WILL WORK OUT.
My coworker and I were speaking Friday about an invention, and then he mentioned and idea to me, so I quickly said go for it. He then said but I want the items to be fresh and hot. I told him if we can send people to the moon, build hotels on the moon I am sure an invention can be created to do what he wants it to do. I told him I am at a point where there is NOTHING that is impossible, the method to get it done or make it happen just hasn’t been invented yet but it can be. His final response to me was you’re right!
Finally, EVERYDAY, EVERY CHANCE YOU GET, SPEAK YOUR VISION, WHILE IN THE SHOWER, ON THE TOILET, IN YOUR CAR, ON YOUR WAY TO WORK, WHEREVER YOU ARE, SPEAK YOUR VISION. THE WORD IS SO POWERFUL YOU CAN UTTER IT UNDER YOUR BREATH AS LONG AS YOU SPEAK IT, IT CAN BE AN AUDIBLE WHISPER, THE WORD WILL NOT, I REPEAT WILL NOT RETURN VOID.
