He Saves Through Words by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

He Saves Through Words by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

…Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon,
whose surname is Peter; Who shall tell
thee words , whereby thou and all thy
house shall be saved (Acts 11:13-14).

In Acts 11, we read the very insightful account
of the conversion of Cornelius and his
household. Cornelius was a Roman centurion
who was devout and prayerful. He was God-fearing and
regularly gave alms to the poor, yet he wasn’t saved.
But on a certain day, an angel appeared to him,
instructing him to send for Peter who shall tell him
words, whereby he and all his house shall be saved.

God saw the man’s “goodness” and moral
uprightness, yet those weren’t enough to save him.
The angel specifically said to him, “…Thy prayers and
thine alms are come up for a memorial before God”
(Acts 10:4). Yet, the man still needed to send for the
Apostle Peter, who would lead him and his household
to utter the words of salvation. This shows that God
saves through words! But what words?

Romans 10:9 corroborates this principle. It says,
“…if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised
him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” The word,
“confess” is from the Greek “homologia,” and it means,
“speaking the same thing in consent”; in other words,
you have to speak words that are in agreement with what God has said, in order for you to be saved. That’s
true confession, and principle for salvation.

Salvation is all-encompassing. It refers to
deliverance from sin and it’s consequences,
preservation, divine healing and health, protection,
prosperity and all the good things that the death, burial,
and resurrection of Jesus Christ obtained for you. To
be saved, therefore, means to be severed and totally
disconnected from all negative influences and
circumstances of life; and there’s more. The confession
of His Lordship.

When you say, “Jesus is Lord over my life,”
besides the fact that you’re immediately transferred
from the domain of darkness into the kingdom of God’s
love-Son, you’re also affirming that He’s the Shepherd
and Lord over your life, business, finances; therefore,
you’ll never lack or be poor! He’s Lord over your body;
therefore, you’ll never be sick or diseased! You’re also
declaring that He’s your refuge and your fortress, and
for that reason, you dwell in safety. Blessed be God!

PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you for your blessed Word that’s
fulfilled in my life. I make progress from glory to
glory, in the direction of your perfect will for my life,
because I live in your Word, and speak faith-filled
words. I dwell in health, safety, and peace forever, in
Jesus’ Name. Amen
