Archbishop Duncan Williams Ministries - The Fig Tree

"Now in the morning as he returned into
the city, he hungered. And when he saw
a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and
found nothing thereon, but leaves only,
and said unto it, let no fruit grow on thee
henceforward forever. And presently the
fig tree withered away." (Matthew 21:18-19)
Having learnt the example of God from creation,
let us now see how Jesus used words extensively
in His work on earth.
The scripture shows us that Jesus forbade the fig
tree from ever bearing fruit. He spoke a word
which stripped the tree of its natural ability
to produce fruits. Not only that, so powerful
were the words that the tree withered away
This should let us know that we have to speak
what we desire to see in our lives. We have to
pray for the fulfillment of what we want to see
until we see it. Imagine if Jesus had spoken to
the tree to bear fruit immediately. Jesus said:
" ... Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, an
doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is
done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto
this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou
cast into the sea; it shall be done. And all things,
whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye
shall receive." (Matthew 21:21-22)
My good friend and brother in the faith, Bishop
Dexter Jakes said: "If speaking negatively can
crush possibilities, then speaking positively can
magnify possibilities"
What words do you speak when the odds are
against you? Let us learn from Jesus. Beloved, if
you believe, you shall have what you say.
PRAYER: Father, I renounce and revoke the
power of any words I have spoken contrary
to Your will concerning my life. I reverse and
overturn the effects that these negative words
have over my life and I command positivity to
my mind, spirit, soul and body.
I declare that henceforth I shall speak positively
and whatsoever I will decree shall be established
in Jesus' name.
