THE REDEEMED CHRISTIAN CHURCH OF GOD

TRANSFORMATION CITY PARISH


DIGGING DEEP SERVICE
TOPIC: CLOSE MOUTH, CLOSED HEAVENS
INTRODUCTION
Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, Be taken
up and thrown into the sea and . believes that what he
says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I
tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have
received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:23 - 34
From these verse we can see that:
1. Our words and prayers are powerful
Jesus speaking on the potency of the Word said..the words
that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John
6:63; Ezekiel 2:2
2. We can have whatever we say. Our mouth is the rudder
of our lives.
And whatever you ask in prayer, you will receive, if you have
faith.
Matthew 21:22
Job 22:28 says [We] will decide on a matter, and it will be
established for ., and light will shine on your ways.
3. We direct our lives and create what we want through
the words of our mouth. Our destiny revolves around
the tongue.
Death and life [are] in the power of the tongue: and they
that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Proverbs 18:21
As it is written, I have made you the father of many
nationsin the presence of the God in whom he believed,
who gives life to the dead and calls into existence the things
that do not exist. Romans 4:17
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction
of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their
commendation. By faith we understand that the universe

was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was


not made out of things that are visible. Hebrews 11:1-3
4. Obstacles, challenges and other repressive forces
responds to Gods word in our mouth
Mark 11:23 says..whoever says to this mountain, Be
taken up and thrown into the sea and . believes that what
he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.
5. We determine the fate of our challenges by declaring
their end
Who are you, O great Mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall
become a plain. Zechariah 4:7
6. We will be deliver by the word of God that we speak
over our situation
For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words
you will be condemned. Matthew 12:37
7. We are to reverse unpleasant situations by declaring
the word of God
When men are cast down, then thou shall say, there is a
lifting up; and he shall save the humble person. Job 22:28
8. Your current challenge will continue to exist so long as
your mouth remains close. Better still, you heavens will
remain closed except you open your mouth
EXAMPLES
JABEZ
We know the story of Jabez, whose name actually means
nonsense in Hebrew. We know his situation remained the
same until he opened his mouth and cried out to God. 1
Chronicles 4:9-10
SAMSON
Samsons remained defeated and his life hopeless after
his fall until he opened his mouth and cried out to God.
Judges 16:28

JONAH
Jonah remained in the belly of the fish until he opened his
mouth and cried out to God. Jonah 2:1 9
JACOB
Israels name remained Jacob and his purpose remained
dormant until he opened his mouth and cried out to God
for a change. Genesis 32
In fact, we may argue that his prayer in Genesis 32:9
resulted into the visitation by the Angel in Genesis 32:
24
The encounter with the Angel would have been of no
consequence if he had not opened his mouth and
requested to be blessed by the Angel. Genesis 32:26
HANNAH
Hannah, the mother of Samuel would have remained barren
if she had not opened her mouth and called out to God. 1
Samuel 1 2
BLIND BARTIMAEUS
Blind Bartimaeus would have died blind if he did not open his
mouth and cry unto Jesus. Mark 10:46-52

should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you. Do not
