Ashley: Did you know, God keeps his promises and God has specific promises for you? Stay tuned.
Announcer: Why live a normal life when you could be living the Abundant Life? Welcome to the Abundant Life program with Ashley and Carlie Terradez.
Ashley: Hello, welcome to Abundant Life. My name is Ashley Terradez and this is my wife, Carlie. And we’re so glad you’ve joined us today on the program. Praise God. We’re talking about possessing the promises. Possessing the promises that God has for you. God has promises for you, specific promises. Praise God. And we’re looking at practical ways that we can possess those promises. Amen?
Carlie: Yeah. So, last time we started off talking about how God is faithful, that he’s faithful to keep his word, that he’s not like maybe other people in our life that have said something and promises something but not been able to deliver, or he’s not even like us. Sometimes we say things and we don’t follow through, right?
Ashley: Sometimes people don’t keep their promises, but God keeps his promises. So, we was looking at last time, how God is a promise keeper. God keeps his promises. Praise God. We looked to the analogy of a promise being like the demonstrating of a wedding ring and marriage.
Carlie: An engagement ring and a wedding ring.
Ashley: An engagement ring and a wedding ring. We talked about the better covenant.
Carlie: Right, so We now have a better covenant based on better promises. And ladies, once you are a married, no longer do you want to be engaged because marriage is a better covenant.
Ashley: Hopefully.
Carlie: Amen, and it supersedes engagement.
Ashley: Amen.
Carlie: And so, there are benefits of a marriage-type relationship of a wedding day that we don’t have just by being engaged. When I was engaged to Ashley, I didn’t get to have his name, I didn’t get to have access to his bank account. When I got married, I got his name, I got his bank account.
Ashley: And it wasn’t that impressive.
Carlie: And it wasn’t much in it. But anyway,
Ashley: When we got married, we were very young. We were 18, 19 years old and didn’t have much money. So yeah, it wasn’t very impressive but you still could go to the bank.
Carlie: Yes.
Ashley: If you wanted to, you could go to the bank with my name and take my $5 out.
Carlie: Yes, you whole $5 and keep all of it. I could spend all of it if I wanted to. Right. So, I had your name, I had a new identity. Now, I was Mrs Terradez, I wasn’t Carlie Du Preez anymore.
Ashley: In fact, I remember on our wedding day, I was a youth pastor at the time and one of my youth group come up to me afterwards. It was so sweet. I don’t know, he was maybe 13 years old, 14 years old. He says, “So Ashley, how does it feel to be Mr. Terradez?” I said, “It’s great! Thank you.”
Carlie: Yeah.
Ashley: But you changed your name, obviously.
Carlie: Yeah.
Ashley: And we became one, right? One flesh and we lived together, we were able to experience a much better a bond and union together than when we were engaged.
Carlie: And just like the new covenant that we live in as believers today, because Jesus changed everything, you understand that? In the Old Testament, they had a covenant, they had an agreement with God themselves, but it was nowhere near as good as the covenant that we have now because of Jesus. Because of Jesus, we can have an intimate relationship with God, like in a marriage, they couldn’t actually have in the Old Testament. That was it. That was a picture of things to come. But even in the Old Testament, I want to get to today that God, not only is he a promise keeper, he is faithful to his word.
Ashley: Amen.
Carlie: And so, the words that he gave that he sent in the Old Testament, they’re still good today.
Ashley: Amen.
Carlie: They still apply to us. All of the blessings that were given, the promises that were given to people in the Old Testament, are still ours today and some, because God’s word doesn’t return void. Right? You have that scripture, don’t you? Isaiah 55.
Ashley: First of all, I was going to say, this is the scripture… The last time we looked at that, all the promises of God in him, yes, and him, amen to the glory of God through us. And that was 2 Corinthians 1:20, Corinthians 1:20. And that’s one of the themes of this teaching, the fact that all the promises of God are yes and amen. And then the scripture you wanted to look at was Isaiah 55:11.
Carlie: Yeah.
Ashley: Isaiah 55:11 says, “So shall My word…” This is God speaking, “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth. It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” Praise God. That’s powerful. God is saying his word out of his mouth will not return to him void. It’s going to prosper and accomplish the very thing that he planned for it.
Carlie: And he’s put his words in our mouth, right?
Ashley: Amen.
Carlie: To tear down, to build up. This is what it talks about in Isaiah, as well. And so, God will always pursue his word. When he releases words, I mean, he releases power, and he is true. If he releases words, he’s going to chase after that word. He is not going to let it fall to the ground. I think it’s Hebrews. Let me just look this up. I think it’s Hebrews 1:3, that ‘He is the brightness of His glory and express image of Himself, and upholds all things by the word of His power.” He upholds all things by the word of his power. When God created the world, he did it with words.
Ashley: Yep.
Carlie: He spoke words. That’s how powerful a word of God is, when it’s spoken to us, either through the word of God, the written word of God, whether it’s spoken to us on the inside by revelation of the holy spirit, whether it’s spoken to us by a gift of the spirit, whatever is. When God speaks to us, maybe in a still, small voice, maybe in an audible voice. When God speaks his word to us, we can take it to the bank. Not only is he faithful and he never breaks his promise, but he magnifies his word even above his name. He places a lot of value. That’s like his power of attorney, right?
Ashley: Amen.
Carlie: I mean, he’s serious about it. I want to look here in the Old Testament. We’ve been talking about covenants and we’ve been comparing different types of covenant. We’ve got an old covenant, new covenant, we’ve got a marriage type covenant, an engagement type covenant. Well, God made a covenant. In other words, an agreement, where we get the word, contract and agreement, a binding contract with Abraham in the Old Testament. Now for a contract to work, there has to be agreement on both sides otherwise, it’s not going to work, right? This is a relationship.
God uses the word covenant, and he’s talking about having relationship. So, let’s look here in Genesis 17:1. It says, “When Abram was 99 years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, ‘I am Almighty God. Walk before Me and be blameless. And I will make my covenant between you and Me and will exceedingly multiply you.'” Now remember, he’s saying, he’s making an agreement. He’s making a covenant of promise, a word to Abram. And in that time, they didn’t have any children. Abram and Sarah didn’t have any children. Abram and Sarah did not have any children.
Ashley: He was Abram then because he wasn’t a father yet. So, it was Abram and the other bit was added on, yeah.
Carlie: Right, his name had not changed yet. Exactly. He says in verse three, “Abram fell on his face and God said to him, ‘As for me, My covenant is with you and you should be the father of a multitude of nations. No longer…'” And this is where you’re getting to, ‘No longer will your name be Abram, but your name will be Abraham.’ That means God with Abraham, right? God with Abraham. When I married Ashley, I became Carlie with Ashley. I became Carlie Terradez.
Ashley: Most of the time, people think that you’re Ashley anyway, because…
Carlie: Because you’ve got a girl’s name, I know.
Ashley: I know, but anyway.
Carlie: Anyway. So he says, “Your name will be Abraham,” okay? God, with Abraham, “for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations and I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings will come from you.” Now, this is going to be blowing his mind because he knows his wife’s up there in years and she’s barren.
Ashley: Well, they’re both in their nineties.
Carlie: They’re well past it. Nothing’s going on there, I’m just saying.
Ashley: Abraham’s 99.
Carlie: Right? Anyway, verse seven…
Ashley: I mean, we don’t need explanations, they’re both elderly and this promise… The best way to say it is, this promise in the natural seemed impossible.
Carlie: It seemed impossible.
Ashley: In the natural, it was impossible.
Carlie: So verse seven says, “I will establish My covenant between me and you and your descendants after you throughout their generations for an everlasting covenant.” You know what this means? Everything that God promised to Abraham, we have today, because God doesn’t expire his word. There’s no expiration date on the word of God. Everything that he promised to Abraham, we’re part of that everlasting covenant. And “to be God to you and your descendants after you.” As an everlasting… He says, “I will give to you and your descendants an everlasting possession, and I will be their God.” Now the fascinating thing about this is obviously, Abraham and Sarah, they didn’t have any children. So, they had to take it by faith what God had said to them. And I think sometimes, we look around at the promises of God. Maybe we read the promises of God here and we think, I just don’t know how they can be true because I don’t see them.
Ashley: So, the natural circumstances…
Carlie: I don’t see how they could come to pass.
Ashley: Yeah, and the natural circumstances, they look impossible. And having a God is the God of the impossible. I mean, he can do the impossible. Praise God. So, in the natural, they may look impossible but if God has promised it, if God has you a promise, you can stand on it. If you apply your faith, if you believe that promise, you can see it come to pass. Abraham had to believe what God told him to see it come to pass. Him and Sarah had to actually get involved in the situation. There’s only been one immaculate conception.
Carlie: And he wasn’t that.
Ashley: And that was Jesus, through the Virgin Mary. They had to put action to their faith, if you like. So, Abraham said, ‘Well, that’s not going to happen, it’s impossible. We’re in our nineties, it’s not going to happen.’ Then he wouldn’t have seen that promise come to pass.
Carlie: Right. He had to take it by faith.
Ashley: Yep.
Carlie: But then there was a response. We mentioned last time that we don’t just get saved automatically. There are promises of God. There’s a promise of God for salvation. There’s a promise of God for healing. There’s a promise of God for you for prosperity, for deliverance, for forgiveness, for all of these things, for freedom in every area of your life. But you didn’t just wake up one morning and find yourself saved. You didn’t just wake up one morning and find yourself healed or prosperous or anything else. Even though a promise has been provided, we still have to take possession of it, and this is really important.
Ashley: Yep.
Carlie: God’s promises are yes and amen, but we add the amen to his yes.
Ashley: Amen.
Carlie: We have to place agreement on that. That is what’s called putting faith in the promises of God, the grace has provided. God provided everything for us. Jesus paid for everything. God provided it, Jesus paid for it. It’s a good deal. But when we get to inherit that, all of those blessings that were spoken over Abraham are ours, but they’re not just going to come to pass automatically, are they?
Ashley: This is Galatians. I like how it’s put in Galatians. Galatians 3:3 puts it this way, it says, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us that is written. ‘Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree’, verse 14, That the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles as us in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Jesus paid for all these things. Jesus paid so that we could receive these promises. He became sin. He became sickness. He became poor so that we could receive the promises of righteousness, of health and healing, of prosperity and increase. He actually paid the price for our sins.
Carlie: Yeah.
Ashley: He had anxiety, so we could have peace.
Carlie: Yeah,
Ashley: And that’s the gospel. And now, it’s our job to actually just say yes and believe it and put our faith to it. So, we’re not making God do anything. God already made up his mind. He’s already provided all these things, all these promises, but our part is to believe them. And James 2 says, ‘Faith without works or faith without corresponding actions is dead.’ What James is saying there really is, if we really believe these promises, if we believe what God is saying to us is true, we’re going to act on it.
Carlie: Yeah.
Ashley: We’re going to put some faith towards it. We’re going to act on it and add some action to our faith. Praise God. So, we’re not making God do anything. He’s already decided. He already decided he loves you. He’s already decided that he’s provided all this stuff for you. You just have to be the person that says yes, I believe it and I’m going to receive it. Amen?
Carlie: That’s good stuff. Now, there’s a scripture that many of you will be familiar with, in John 3:16.
Ashley: John 3:16. I wonder what that says. That’s your classic.
Carlie: But before we get there, I want to back up a little bit here, okay, because the word of God has always been true. It’s always been yes and it’s always been for you. Now, it wasn’t always available to everybody, okay, because we were living in a fallen world and living under an old covenant, but now under the new covenant, it’s available to every single one of us. Amen.
Ashley: If we choose it.
Carlie: If we choose it. God has always been a giver.
Ashley: Amen.
Carlie: And there are many promises that are in the word of God that are for us. Now, we know John 3:16. John 3:16 says, “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, so that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have a eternal life.” Right. So, God’s always been a giver. And when we’re talking about believing in Jesus, we’re talking about putting our faith in what he’s already done.
Ashley: Amen.
Carlie: Because he loves us, he pursues his word. Because he loves us, he’s faithful, he’s a promise keeper. Back up here a minute. It says, “Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the son…” This is in verse 14, “So must the son of man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but may have eternal life.” You see, when God… I mean, in our life, particularly the promise of healing was one that has become very real to us, is part of the promise of God, just one of the many promises, and there are many, many promises that Jesus paid the price for us to have.
And Psalm 107:20 says, “I sent my word and healed them.” He sent his word and healed them. He didn’t send the doctor and heal them or the bank manager or the Centurion, he sent his word and healed us. Now when we heard that, when we were going through some challenges in our family and our own physical body, it’s almost like we were hearing it for the first time. We knew that God loved us for God so loved the world that he sent Jesus, but we didn’t understand about this promise of healing because what we were doing was, we were looking at our own life and seeing a lack of healing.
Ashley: In our own experience.
Carlie: In our own experience.
Ashley: This is what happens sometimes. You look at experience and say, well so-and-so prayed for God to be healed and they weren’t healed therefore, it can’t be God’s promise every time, it just must be now and again.
Carlie: And I think sometimes we discount ourselves from the promises of God, because we do. We look around us, we measure our experience up to the word of God and think, hmm, well that doesn’t compute therefore, my experience can’t lie to me surely, because I’m experiencing it. So, therefore the word of God must be misinterpreted. Maybe it doesn’t apply to me, maybe God’s changed his mind, maybe they’ve expired, maybe the promises aren’t good, maybe I haven’t earned them. Somehow, we start to place, if we’re not careful, conditions upon the word of God, upon the promises of God and to whether or not we did actually discount ourselves from receiving them. And I think that’s because oftentimes, we just don’t necessarily know the promises are still good.
Ashley: Right.
Carlie: We don’t know that God’s a good God.
Ashley: If you haven’t been told that faith comes by hearing and healing by the word of God, since no one’s told you that, you’ve never learned that God is a good God. So, in our particular situation Carlie was talking about was, when our daughter was healed, this is one example. We never knew it was God’s will to heal every time, that’s God’s will. Now, we don’t see it every time because we have a part to play and there’s other factors involved, but it doesn’t stop the fact being that it’s God’s will for every person to be healed, just like it’s God’s will for every person to be born again, even though they are not because it’s their choice. So, until we understood that it’s God’s will for every person… It was God’s will for our daughter, then we could start putting faith behind that because now we knew the truth.
Carlie: Right.
Ashley: And I think, first thing is you have to know the promises of God. You have to read the word, you have to listen to good teachings, sharing this plug for Abundant Life program, our Abundant Life program, we’re going to be teaching you the promises of God and you can go back and watch other episodes, they’re all on our website, TerradezMinistries.com.
Carlie: Amen.
Ashley: But listen to these teachings, watch these teachings because they’re going to reveal to you the promises of God, God’s will for you are these promises. And until someone tells you about these promises, until you hear them for yourself, until you read them in the word yourself, you can’t believe them.
Carlie: Right.
Ashley: You can’t believe in something you never heard of.
Carlie: Right. You won’t be able to receive something that you’re ignorant off, that you just don’t have any understanding or knowledge of. So, we might have seen that scripture, Psalm 107:20, “He sent his word and healed us.” But because we didn’t see it in our own life, we kind of discounted ourselves from it. But I want to show you in the word of God, that healing just being one of the promises of God was always God’s idea. It’s a promise for you today. You can receive it, you can respond to it and you can see it manifest in your life.
And so, what it says here in John 3:14, “Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, so that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life.” This is referring to a time in Numbers, actually. In Numbers, there was an incidence in Numbers 21:8-9. I don’t know if you want to look at Numbers 21:8-9, where the children of Israel were disobedient, basically. They were going off and snakes were biting them and people were dying and they were perishing. But even then, God provided for them a way out, a way of healing was for them. Healing was even in the Old Testament. Have you got that?
Ashley: Yeah. This is Numbers 21:8. It says, “Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘Make a fiery serpent and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when they look at it, shall live.’ So Moses made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when they looked at the bronze serpent, they lived.” So I guess, I don’t know what this would look like. He put it on a pole and lifted it up so everyone could see it.
Carlie: Exactly. And you know what I’m thinking? They crucified that serpent. In the Old Testament, there’s what we call types and shadows. So, there’s a lot of pictorial things in the Old Testament that were showing us things to come in the New Testament. And so, this was almost like this was a picture of the crucifixion of Jesus. They crucified a serpent, they crucified the snake. And as they looked at that bronzed serpent, they put faith in the Jesus who was to come, who was to be the payment for their healing.
Ashley: Actually, that’s a good point. Everyone has only ever been saved through Jesus. Jesus is the only savior, the only way to be saved. Jesus is the only way to the father.
Carlie: Amen.
Ashley: So, anyone who was ever saved, if you like, and we’re not going to get into all these different things going on here because there’s a lot more to it. But just simply put, anyone who was saved in the Old Testament or anyone…. Let me put this way, anyone who turns up in heaven, when you get to heaven, if there’s anyone in heaven before Jesus, they got saved by trusting in Jesus to come. They got saved by trusting Jesus. They didn’t know Jesus then, they didn’t know about the cross, but God gave them pictures and God gave… That’s why the animal sacrifices and all things like that. That was all about putting your trust in Jesus to come. Everyone who gets saved now is putting their trust in Jesus that was. Praise God. But there was never another way of salvation. It was always through Jesus. And this is another one of those pictures that God gave the people so they could put their trust in Jesus to come. Praise God. And find their way to salvation.
Carlie: And this is why Jesus says, “I’m the way, the truth and the life.” Jesus is the way, the only way. Amen. So, healing and the promises of God were available in the Old Testament and they’re still available today.
Ashley: Amen.
Carlie: And I have a theory here, but the reason that it was particularly a bronzed serpent that they crucified there in numbers. I think God was crucifying that serpent way back from the garden, from the Garden of Eden. It was at wildly serpent that got in the way, that stole from Adam and Eve their authority, that stole blessing from them, that intervened in the plan of God, right there in the Garden of Eden. In the Garden of Eden, God created Adam and Eve and the very first thing he did was he gave them a job and he gave them authority.
Ashley: Yep.
Carlie: He gave them authority and it was a serpent that came between them and said, “Did God really say?” And weaseled them their way out of the promise, made them think they didn’t have something that they already had.
Ashley: Yep.
Carlie: This is in Genesis 3, but it was the serpent that said to Eve, “If only you eat this apple, then the eyes of your understanding will be open and you’ll be like God.” And I hear this today in a different form in the church sometimes, that we’re trying to get something we haven’t already got.
Ashley: Right.
Carlie: You see what Eve didn’t realize was, she didn’t need to eat the apple to be like God, she already was like God. She was made in his image, with his name and his power and his authority. The very first job that Adam and Eve had was to go and subdue the things of the earth. She didn’t need anything else. She was perfect as she was.
Ashley: She already had it.
Carlie: She already had it.
Ashley: So, today we pray. Sometimes we’re guilty and often pray like, ‘God, please do this or please do that. Oh, if only I could have this or have that.’
Carlie: We act like we don’t have the promises available to us.
Ashley: When they’re already ours, we just need to activate them. So, I’ve prayed prayers like this before, I knew these truths, but I’ve prayed prayers… Oh, please Lord, can you do this, please? And we often put it on God, like, please, would you do this? God’s already done it. He’s already made those provisions for us. Praise God. So, we need to start thanking God for already having it and asking God how we can activate it, give us wisdom, how to activate it and [inaudible]. But we already have it, God’s already provided for us.
Carlie: Right.
Ashley: And that’s so powerful. It’s so much easier to release something you already have than try and get something you haven’t got yet. If you’re trying to get something you haven’t got, there’s always…
Carlie: There’s works involved.
Ashley: There’s works involves, and there’s always a doubt, you might not get it, you might not make it to get it and if you get it, you might get it. But now, when you’re trying to get it, there’s doubt. And that’s why our own thoughts are the enemy, you can get it or you might not get it. You might not. You might not able to receive it.
Carlie: But the promises of God are yes and amen.
Ashley: Amen. They’re a done deal.
Carlie: They’re a done deal.
Ashley: So, releasing what we already have. So, when we got born again… When you got born again, you received everything in Jesus. You have got everything, praise God, inside of you. And I’m thinking of 1 John 4:17, “As he is, so are you in this world.” In the spirit realm, you’re just like Jesus. You have everything Jesus had when he lived on earth, in your spirit.
Carlie: Yes.
Ashley: And the issue is, is we’ve got to release that through our soul. And our soul is our mind, will and emotions. And that’s why we need to renew our mind. Romans 12:1-2 talks about renewing our mind. And when we renew our mind, all we’re doing is really is, we’re getting the word of God and finding out who we really are.
Carlie: Yeah.
Ashley: We look at our natural mirror, right? To find out what we look like in the flesh. So, we look in the natural mirror, hopefully you look in the mirror sometimes.
Carlie: To see our outward appearance.
Ashley: And see what you look like in your outward appearance. Is your hair straight? And things like that. Well, we need to look into the spiritual mirror. We need to look into the real mirror, which is the word of God, to find out who we are and the spirit.
Carlie: Yeah.
Ashley: And the word of God reveals who we are in the spirit and who we are in the spirit is all those promises of God we already have in the spirit [inaudible].
Carlie: And I love what you were saying there, that the word of God paints a picture. It tells us who we are, but we need to actually see it. The word of God is that powerful. The promises of God, they don’t just apply to healing another. Another area that people struggle with a lot that we teach, if you’ve watched many of our Abundant Life programs, you’ll know that we also like to teach on how to receive abundance in every area of our life.
Ashley: Amen.
Carlie: And so, this is another promise that people often miss out on because they don’t realize that it’s provided, but we have to take possession of it by faith.
Ashley: Yep.
Carlie: 3 John 2 says, “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.” So, you are talking about renewing your mind to the word of God, but here in that scripture, prosperity and healing are put together and God wants us to be in health and to prosper, but it’s linked to how our soul is prospering, right? How we are thinking about the promises of God. So, I know some people are sitting there thinking, well, it would be a good scripture that I can meditate on to say the promises of God in the area of provision for me.
Ashley: Amen.
Carlie: What are a couple of your scriptures that you really enjoy about the provisioning out?
Ashley: Oh, so many. I mean, 2 Corinthians 8-9. I love this scripture, it’s 2 Corinthians 8-9, it says, “For you know the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ.”
Carlie: Jesus has done everything.
Ashley: He’s saying grace, he’s already provided for us. Though he was rich, he became poor for our sakes, and this is a financial verse in context. He became poor for our sakes so that we, through his poverty, might receive his riches.
Carlie: Yeah.
Ashley: So again, it’s prosperity, financial increase, financial provision is a by-product of the gospel. And what happens is, just like healing, Jesus… 1 Peter 2:24, “Jesus took stripes and pain in his body so that we can have health and healing.” Just like 2 Corinthians 5:17, or 5:21, sorry, 5:21, “He became sin so that we could become his righteousness.”
Carlie: The great exchange.
Ashley: It’s the great exchange. And my point being is, is those scriptures, Jesus already done it. He’s already provided for us. Graces has provided it.
Carlie: He’s done the hard part.
Ashley: He’s done all the hard part. All we have to do is believe it. And just like a marriage relationship, we started this talking about marriage relationship. When we get born again, and we start putting our faith in Jesus, what happens is, is we get all those promises as ours. We share his name, praise God, and we get all those promises and they become ours. And that includes increasing our finances, health in our bodies, peace of mind and righteousness, praise God. All those things.
Carlie: And his deliverance. Amen. Hope, joy, peace, all that came on the inside of us.
Ashley: Amen. He’s powerful. And that’s God’s promise to us, Philippians 4:19. Paul says, “My God’s going to supply your needs according to his riches.” Your needs can be met according to God’s riches, not according to your economy. So, in so many other scriptures, so the promises of God are yes and amen, that’s 2 Corinthians 5:7, the promise… No. 2 Corinthians 5:7, “We walk by faith and not by sight.” And that’s what we have to do. We have to walk by faith to receive these things and not by our natural circumstances, but the promises of God are yes and amen.
Carlie: They’re yes and amen.
Ashley: And regardless of our circumstances, they are yes and amen. Praise God.
Carlie: So, the promises of God are for us, but we need to be aware of what they are and how to receive them. So, we’re going to continue this series of possessing our promises. We’ve presented to you today just a few of the benefits of being born again in a marriage type relationship with Jesus. Right now, we’d love to pray with you and help you to receive some of those promises and remember to carry on watching the rest of this series.
Ashley: Amen. Father, God, I thank you so much. Thank you so much for everyone watching and listening today. I thank you, father God, that they are blessed. I thank you Lord, that every promise that you’ve made is available to them. They have it. And Lord, I thank you Lord, that they can trust in you. They can trust in your word. And I thank you Lord, as they take those steps of faith, they’re going to see those promises manifest in their life and they’re going to see the full benefits that you’ve already paid for. Praise God, Lord. I thank you. Love every single viewer and I think that every single viewer is receiving from you today in Jesus name. Amen.

Carlie: Thanks for joining us at today’s program. We’ve been talking today about how God is faithful to keep his word. His word is powerful. He created the whole world. He created you and me with the power of his word. And he sent his word to heal you and to prosper you, to deliver you. And our part is to forget not all of his benefits of his word. Amen. His word does not return to him void. So, we want you to get everything, obtain all of the promises that God has for you. Stay tuned and remember to watch the rest of the series.

Carlie: I started dreaming. I started imagining myself climbing that mountain, getting up out that wheelchair and walking and climbing that mountain in three months time. I started seeing myself do it, kind of like with Abraham and Sarah. Every time I closed my eyes, I could see myself doing it. And one day, the Lord spoke to me and he says, “You don’t have to believe for everything in one go. My promises are yes and amen, but you don’t have to believe for everything in one go.”
