“Your Due Date Is Here”
“For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power…” Heb 4:12 AMP
The Word of God is alive and full of power according to Hebrews 4:12 AMP. It is a living breathing Word that has the power of fulfillment resident within itself. First conception (annunciation) through intimacy, afterward comes the birth, manifestation, or fulfillment of the thing conceived/announced. The time between conception and birth is known as “pregnancy”.
Pregnancy is also known as the “gestation period” or the development period. Depending on the species, the length of the gestation period varies. An elephant, for instance, has a gestation period of 645 days or approximately 1.8 years. An opossum only 12-13 days. Human is 259-280 days or 9 months.
No matter how long or how short the period, development is the process between conception and birth. When the Father says, “I’m watching over My Word to perform it”, it’s already targeted and released to its destination and now awaits the development and timing for bringing it forth. Whether it’s two weeks, two years, twenty-five years, or a four thousand year prophecy – from Adam to Jesus – the Father watches; He’s alert, attentive, and acting on His Word. In Isaiah He says, “It (His Word) shall not return to Me void…” (Isa 55:11). Void of what? Void of accomplishment, fulfillment and prosperity. “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times” (Ps 12:6).
When God sends His Word it is always, always for our good; even when it hurts, it corrects and heals. He’s a good-good Daddy! May His word be incubated within your vessel (s) to which it is sent. Nurtured by faith and patience, it is formed in the heart or spirit of man and birthed at the appointed time. Your life undergoes change (revolution) and transformation and becomes the fulfillment of a Word given from the Father to complete His will in the earth. You are part of a Jesus generation whose life does not return to Him void (without producing any effect, useless) but accomplishes what He pleases and prospers in the thing/place He sends it. It’s the divine activity of the Word of God inside of you making things happen by the Holy Ghost. Your new life in Christ is the result of the Word, God’s seed in you being fulfilled.
When you were born you were given a word, male or female, and a name, giving you identity. Unbeknownst to you at that time, you were dead in trespasses and sins and in need of a Savior who is Christ the Lord – the Word incarnate or made flesh. When the appointed time came, you heard the Word of God and believed and were born again as a result. We have been born, not of corruptible seed (human), but of the incorruptible seed of the Word of God which lives and abides forever (I Pet 1:23). You are the result of the Word and the fulfillment of the Word is your assignment. As Jesus said before yielding up the Ghost, may we be able to echo those same words, “It is Finished.”
