Facts: information presented as objectively real or true.
If facts are not in agreement with God’s word they cannot be true
Jesus stated that truth was only found in God’s word.
Joh 17:17 KJVA Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
The main characteristic of facts is FACTS CHANGE!
The main characteristic of truth is TRUTH NEVER CHANGES!
Because facts change, they are unsettled.
God’s word is settled; that Is why they are true.
Throughout the bible God spoke truth and changed facts.
In the ministry of Jesus, he spoke God’s truth to facts and again changed the facts.
Psa 119:89 MSG What you say goes, GOD, and stays, as permanent as the heavens.
You settle or establish facts or truth in your life by your faith confession.
Speaking God’s faith-filled-power-filled word to the apparent facts will change the facts and bring into being the truth-God’s Word.
Job 22:28 KJV Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.
Job 22:28 MKJV You shall also order a thing, and it shall be fulfilled to you; and the light shall shine on your ways.
Job 22:28 MSG You'll decide what you want and it will happen; your life will be bathed in light.
When facts speak defeat, we are to answer with the truth, God’s word.
(Isa 54:17 CEV) Weapons made to attack you won't be successful; words spoken against you won't hurt at all. My servants, Jerusalem is yours! I, the LORD, promise to bless you with victory.
Num.20:8 Fact: Rocks do not contain water. Moses spoke God’s word to a rock and that rock produced enough water to supply a nation and its livestock.
2King 4:20-37 Fact: This woman’s son had died. She refused to accept the fact that he was dead. With faith filled words she changed the facts and brought life to her son.
Jos.10:12-14 Joshua faith filled words moved God to stop the sun and moon.
Zec. 4:6-7 Zec. spoke words of faith to his problem and turn his hindrances into help.
Mark 4:36-41 Jesus didn’t like the fact that this storm was the cause of Him being awaken, so He spoke words of faith and changed the facts.
Joel 3:10 says when facts speak weakness to you, reply with the truth. Say I am strong.
This is the principle of calling the things that be not as though they were.
Rom 4:17 KJV (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, [even] God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Rom 4:17 GNB as the scripture says, "I have made you father of many nations." So the promise is good in the sight of God, in whom Abraham believed---the God who brings the dead to life and whose command brings into being what did not exist.
Please pay close attention to what I am about to say. Then research it for yourself.
For 24 years Abram had a blood- covenant promise from God, but never had the promised son until he began to speak in agreement with what God had said. When he and his wife started speaking what God had said things began to change. Before the year was out they had the fulfillment of the promise, a son. Their faith confession brought into being that which did not exist. They spoke the desired results and received the results they desired. Faith filled words spoken from their hearts turned back their biological clock and removed the curse from Abraham and Sarah’s life. Remember James said that the tongue can turn the cycle of life.
