ACT THE WORD

ACTEvery time the word is released it places a demand and a responsibility on you the hearer or receiver. The real proof that you believed the revelation that brought the conviction you expressed, is by the afterward action you take. Acting on a revelation that has become your conviction and expression is the quickest way to get result with the word of God.

For every divine saying there is always a human doing

Kenneth E. Hagin shared the testimony of A.B. Simpson, he read years ago in a Christian magazine. Dr. Simpson, a Presbyterian minister at the time of his healing, later founded the Christian and Missionary Alliance. At the age of 46, he was told he was dying of a heart condition and was given only about six months to live. Dr. Simpson said he had heard many testimonies of healing, even in his own church. He took a short leave of absence and went up to his farm, where he could spend a lot of time studying God’s Word. At the end of two weeks, Dr. Simpson took a piece of paper and a pencil and wrote, “After searching the Word of God for two weeks, I am convinced the Bible teaches that divine healing is for us today. And I, this day, accept Jesus Christ as my Healer and declare that I am now healed from heart trouble and that I am well. And I promise God to use this new-found strength and life and energy entirely for His purpose and to further the Gospel. I promise God I will share this truth of healing with others and will help them.”

After that time, Dr. Simpson went to a luncheon where he was to be the speaker. At the gathering he gave his testimony that he had searched the Bible and concluded that Jesus was still the Healer today. After the luncheon, he was invited to go mountain climbing by the men to whom he had spoken. The thought immediately came to him that he wouldn’t be able to go because of his heart condition. But then he remembered he had declared his healing, so he accepted the invitation. Up to this point, he had not really seen or felt his healing he had just accepted it and declared it by faith. As he climbed, every time he got his mind off the Word of God, he would begin to feel the symptoms of his heart condition. But as he claimed the Word again for his healing, all the symptoms would go away. He fought this battle all the way up the mountain. Once at the top, he walked about victorious, without any symptoms! Dr. Simpson acted on the Word and got real faith from it.

The word of God is more powerful when put into action than when only spoken

“So it was, as the multitude pressed about Him to hear the word of God, that He stood by the Lake of Gennesaret, and saw two boats standing by the lake; but the fishermen had gone from them and were washing their nets. Then He got into one of the boats, which was Simon’s, and asked him to put out a little from the land. And He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When He had stopped speaking, He said to Simon, “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” But Simon answered and said to Him, “Master, we have toiled all night and caught nothing; nevertheless, at Your word I will let down the net.” And when they had done this, they caught a great number of fish, and their net was breaking. So they signaled to their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both the boats, so that they began to sink. When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord!” For he and all who were with him were astonished at the catch of fish which they had taken; and so also were James and John, the sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. And Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid. From now on you will catch men.” So when they had brought their boats to land, they forsook all and followed Him.” Luke 5;1-11
