READ: Hebrews 4:12
“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” - 2 Timothy 3:16
Teaching is powerful. It drives away demons, mental diseases, blindness, uncleanness, pride, stupidity, lust, spiritual problems and poverty. The sword pricks the demons and drives them away. “…and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God…” (Ephesians 6:17).
Since the demons do not want to be hurt by the sword of the Word they do all they can to stop you from taking in the teaching. That is why sometimes demons make you sit in church and sleep, lest you hear the teaching. Hearing comes before healing! (See Luke 6:17, Mark 4:14).
A seed is planted when you hear the Word. If the preacher says, “You shall be blessed and prosperous,” a seed is planted in your life. The words of a teacher are seeds, which grow and become mighty trees. The reason many people in my church want to be pastors is because of the seeds I have planted. What you plant is what you reap.
Even in ordinary life you realize that the things we say about our children come to pass as they grow up. As you continue to call your child an angel he grows up to have a sweet spirit and vice versa.
As you tell your congregation it shall be well with them, that the Lord is their keeper and the shade upon their right hand, these promises come to pass. “The Lord is your helper. You shall live and not die. It shall be well with you. You shall have the baby you thought you would not have.” These are seeds that will grow.
