“In the beginning…” is more accurately translated “In beginning”. Genesis is a book of beginnings. We have the beginning of creation, of man, of sin, of nations, etc., etc. God began to create, but that was not the end of His “beginning”. He still is beginning things today. In fact, many of you have had a “beginning” where something that never existed before now exists! In First Corinthians 5:17 it says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (NKJV). When you accepted Christ, you died and you ceased to exist. But at that same exact moment, God created a brand new being inside of you. You are a “brand new man or woman”. There is even a song that you can sing to remind yourself of this reality. “I’m a new creation! I’m a brand new man! Old things have passed away! I’ve been born again! More than a conqueror! That’s who I am. I’m a new creation! I’m a brand new man!”
Now, that is something to shout about! However, let’s get back to Genesis. God put everything into existence by speaking words. Because Genesis 1:1 says “In beginning”, a continuous time, not “in the beginning”, as in a definite point in time, it tells us that the words that God spoke to put things into existence are continually being spoken. In fact, if God ever quit speaking those original words, the creation would simply vanish! In Hebrews 1:3 it says that He is “upholding all things by the word of His power”. If He withdrew His Word that began the process, everything would cease to exist. Therefore He is still “In beginning”.
Here then is the secret of creation. You have to keep speaking the Word if you want to keep that which was created by that Word. Oh my! I don’t think you heard what I just said! “YOU HAVE TO KEEP SPEAKING THE WORD IF YOU WANT TO KEEP THAT WHICH WAS CREATED BY THAT WORD!” Don’t stop reading now, I want to help you.
If you want to keep your healing, you will have to keep speaking the Word that brought you that healing. Here is the power of receiving healing. The Word of God is powerful. It accomplishes that which it was sent to do. It will not return void. The first time you spoke the Word over your body, healing manifested! You may have not felt it, you may have not seen it, but healing manifested! Just as sure as I am typing this at this moment, it has already been established in your body! But you cannot quit speaking the Word! Eventually, you will see the results physically, but the moment you spoke the Word, the Word worked! Even after you have the fruition, you will now need to keep speaking the Word. Even healthy people need to speak, “By His stripes, I am healed”.
The same works for finances. Keep speaking the Word. Imitate God who “In beginning” spoke all things into existence and is still speaking those same words!
