Apostle Ofori's last Sabbath School Lesson

“Opposite Language of Christ”
(Condensed)
Saturday, Sept. 29, 2007

God’s ‘language’ is one rooted in His limitless creative power. Hence it’s not born of physical observation or empirical evidence. It’s a language that overlooks the negative physical realities that speak defeat and failure and instead speaks the language of possibility in line with His basic nature and modus operandi. It’s the language of faith (Heb. 11:1; Rom. 4:17).

And faith must be backed with prayers. Ask God to actualize His positive interventions in your life in Jesus’ Name, the Amen! Spiritual things are spiritually discerned (1 Cor. 2:14). So is Christ’s eternally positive, ‘no-negative’ language.

You are sick—yes, sick and aching—but Christ insists YOU ARE HEALED. In fact, you WERE NEVER SICK, for 2000 years ago YOU WERE HEALED by His stripes (Isa. 53:5; 1 Pet. 2:24).

This is the divine wavelength God wants you to be on. Yeshua is the creator of all things, the visible and the invisible, including your as yet physically un-manifested blessing existing in the spiritual realm in heaven (Eph. 1:3).  So believe you have it and continue to knock until the blessing manifests physically! (Matt. 7:7).

In Luke 8:49-55, Jesus brings back to life a dead person saying she is asleep, not dead. That speaks volumes about how Christ evaluates what we would ordinarily consider a hopeless situation, such as death. To prove His point, He called back the departed spirit of the dead girl, “and her spirit came again”.

Beloved, speak Christ’s EVER-POSITIVE, FAILURE-BLIND language, and nothing shall be impossible unto you. For the scripture says, “If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth” (Mark 9:23). Wean yourself off the language of defeat and failure (which is the discourse of the unredeemed masses chafing under Satanic oppression - 1 Pet. 5:8-9); it’s not only defeatist, it belittles God’s power and His ability to changes situations for the better.

And that’s why Rom. 8:28 says it all: “All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose”

Not even death—if it’s God’s will—is something negative in Christ. On the contrary, for the true saint, “to die is gain”—an opportunity “to be with Christ which is far better” (Philippians 1:21, 23). From the beginning to the end all is positive in Christ.
