Who You Are, What You Have.


Mt 16:13
When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”

Question: Who is the Jesus in your eyes?
A man? A teacher? A prophet?

Mt 16:16
Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

Jesus called “Simon Bar-Jonah” or Son of DOVE (HOLY SPIRIT)
ð In the bible, the name shows the nature/character of the person

~ Therefore we must stop seeing others or myself thru the eyes of the World but thru God’s eyes instead.
- Jesus then called Simon Peter. Jesus saw him as PETER, the ROCK.
ð We need to have a revelation of who we are and what God has put in your life.
ð It is the glory of God to hide knowledge but it is the glory of kings to seek it out.

This is done thru the WEAPON/TOOL = The bible or the Word Of the Living God

Js 1:23-24
"For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was."


1) Power of REVELATION
what has Holy Spirit/Word of God been revealed to you?
We need revelation to do God’s will and to achieve success in life.

we must put “blueprints” or see ourselves in the picture
If we can see it, God can do exceedingly great beyond our imagination.Eph3:20Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us

3) Power of CONFESSION
If we confess our goals and vision, we’re 1 step closer.

Life & Death is determined in the power of your tongue

Gen 1:1
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
God is creator God, Elohim God!"
As God is a creative being and man being made in the image of God, THEREFORE man are made to be creative!

We may not be creative before, but being born again, we’re new beings. We’re CREATIVE/TALENTED.

Gen 1:2
“…And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.”

Hovering = WAITING
Holy Spirit was Waiting to get into action once God spoke the Word. (v 3)

Gen 1:3
Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

Ps 33:6
By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.

“Breath” = Spirit
Holy Spirit follows the word that is spoken!

Heb 1:1-3
"God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high."

ð When we speak, Holy Spirit can work on it together with the creativeness, makes the dreams/vision come to pass!

God is waiting for YOU to speak the word Holy Spirit has revealed to you, to allow God’s creative power to make it come to pass

Heb 11:1
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Faith = substance:
1) something you can sense/feel it.
2) The confidence on the inside

Two Levels of FAITH
a) Faith that requires a point of contact (Example. The woman with the issue of blood)
ð Needs laying of hands/physical natural touch
b) Moving in the realm of GREAT FAITH (Example. The Roman Centurion Soldier whose servant need healing)
ð Knowing the authority and moving to the faith by Words of Jesus

Heb 11:3
"By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible."

What kind of FRAME/WORLD you live in?
Faith is to the positive what fear is to the negative

Frame sets the boundary of a picture
Words create the “boundary” of the VISION

HOW FAR? HOW MUCH? Is determined by the frame you want to frame it!

2 Cor 4:13
"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."

ð God believed in His Word he spoke and it comes to pass
ð Since we have the same spirit/attitude, likewise when we speak, it’ll also come to pass.
