One of the fastest-growing art forms today is called the “spoken word.” Throngs of people gather in clubs, schools, cafés, church auditoriums, stadiums and theaters just to hear the poetic, pulsating rhyme spoken by artists who, by virtue of their creativity and talent, move their audiences to emotional highs and lows merely by what comes out of their mouths. Like painters creating moving masterpieces in vibrant colors, these artists “paint” on the canvas of the human soul.
Eons ago, with neither fanfare nor audience, the mighty Creator of the universe spoke. His utterance would constitute the first recorded words: “Let there be ... ” (See Genesis 1.) God thought, spoke, and the universe came into being.
The true power of the spoken word is beyond our common understanding. It is a spiritual mystery—a hidden secret now being revealed to equip God’s people for an unprecedented era of empowerment and influence. The time has come for believers to rise up and walk in the knowledge and authority God has provided and commanded through His Word—the Word He spoke into us and created us to speak forth. While forces around us threaten our peace and stability, nothing can prevail against God’s spoken Word.
