God is omnipotent! God is the everlasting King! The bible considers lie as an obsession that is absolutely impossible for God to embark on: “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began”(Titus 1:2) .
Similarly, it goes further: “That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us” (Hebrews 6:18).
Most times, people assume that God’s inability to lie is connected to His holy and righteous nature since lie is tantamount to transgression. Perhaps, in contradistinction, God is either conscientious or vigilant to avoid committing sin in accordance to the scripture: “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”(1 Peter 5:8).
No doubt, the assumption is partially correct. The reason is simple; God’s nature is never in sync with deceit and falsehood, and therefore He cannot walk crookedly because He himself is the truth: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life …” (John 14:6). However, God is neither sober nor vigilant in order not to lie because He is the supreme judge, and therefore can’t be accountable to His inferior or subordinates, hence, needless of wariness. Nevertheless, it goes beyond that.
Firstly, it’s simply impossible for God to lie because His words take supremacy over all things, and secondly, lies are apparently non-existent to God because all circumstances and words are subject to the voice of God. This is because, when he speaks forth, irrespective of what He says, it correspondingly comes into existence because He is the Alpha and Omega. God’s word holistically disregards all circumstances, situations and changes every status quo to be in harmony because his words are supernatural (above or beyond nature): “… the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life. (John 6:63). For example, when God changed Abram and Sarai’s name to Abraham and Sarah respectively, the spirit inside His word transformed their bodies to synchronize with the word and produced what it talked about. He called Abram; Abraham (father of many nations), a metamorphosis took place. He was transfigured accordingly, and a supposedly ‘lie’ became truth. Ditto was Sarah.
Similarly, when Jesus said that “Lazarus sleepeth” (John 11:11), despite the fact that he was deceased, buried and already stinking in the grave for four days, status quo changed, and death that held him bound disappeared in conformity with a superior order. Guess why? God’s word is power-packed: “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of souls and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12). Essentially, God’s word isn’t mere words but purpose-driven seeds: “So shall my word be that goeth out of my mouth; it shall not return void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11).
Consider also the encounter of Jesus with the fig tree (Matthew 21:19). In other words, God doesn’t speak sporadically, He operates both in season and out of season because He is the creator, and to Him alone, every knee shall bow (Romans 14:11). When God declares that you’re healed, delivered and blessed; the spirit in the spoken words has the capacity to perform it. What a great privilege we have to be God’s spokespersons! What do you think?
It therefore implies that God’s word concerning us is more than requests or petitions, rather acts of God bequeathing His possessions to us by Will (legal directions for the disposal of one’s property after death). And because Wills are ambulatory, Jesus died so that the will could become active and effective, not subsequently, but now.
Now, as God’s Will (word) says you’re blessed; I have given you an open door; you’re the light of the world; you’re a peculiar people; you’re powered by Zoe, among others; ain’t you? Of course, there is no contest, that’s final. As God has spoken that all things are yours, so they are:“Therefore, let no one glory in men. For all things are yours”(1Corinthians 3:21). In addition, the Will says “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue ( 2 Peter 1:3). All required of us is to accept it and take possession with our mouth disregarding whatsoever circumstances or situations we might see around us at the moment, for we walk by faith, and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). Principally, our duty is to accept and operate in absolute consciousness of what God has said because beneficiaries of a legacy (Will) can only take advantage after taking possession. Our Lord rules, and reigns over all things! Now, the breaking news! Guess what? As He is, so are we in this world! (1 John 4:7)
We have His identity and likeness, and operate by same principles and rules. As pilots disregard road-traffic lights and signs, but solely submit to superior directives, so are we to ignore circumstances and situations we might see, but punctiliously submit to the words of God which is able to give us a goodly inheritance.( Acts 20:32)Praise the Lord!
Another mind blowing news; He speaks through us! When we speak in His name, He authenticates it, and the anointing in His word performs it because everything under heaven and earth are under mandate to obey him; “While He yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them; and behold, a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him” (Matthew 17:5).
Today, we’re His voices in our respective world with full authority and audacity representing the Lord of Hosts. It didn’t end there; we are both the administrators, executors and beneficiaries of the glorious legacy.
Hence, we ain’t going to be intimidated by the devil because, we know who we are; we are powered by Zoe! Greater is He in us than he that is in the world! We operate with the authority from above, and we have overcome the world because whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world (1 John 5:4). The prominent question is; are you born of God?
