Our Speaking Power X 2

But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people (His own special people); that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:  1 Peter 2:9

God calls us “a royal priesthood.” This means that we are kings as well as priest under the king-priesthood of Jesus Christ. This has never happened before in the history of God’s people. In the Old Testament, kings and priests were two distinct groups of people. You were either a king or priest, but not at the same time.
But today because we are in Christ, we are king priests, a royal priesthood. This means that we have a DOUBLE PORTION of speaking power because as kings, “Where the word of a king is, there is power” (Ecclesiastes 8:4), and as priests, “by their word every controversy and every assault shall be settled” (Deuteronomy 21:5).  

So, for example, if you are a Christian businessperson, you will have an edge over worldly businesspeople. What you say about your business deals will come to pass. And if you are falsely accused, know that by your very word, every controversy and every assault will be settled.  

And as a king-priests parent, when you bless your children, your words have the power to set in motion supernatural events which will bring them into God’s abundance and superabounding grace. And there will be such a courage and resilience about them that it will empower them to win again all adversary.  

When the devil comes to you and says that you will die young because your father and grandfather died young, or that you will never be successful because you are not well educated, you must remember that the devil is neither a king nor a priest. There is NO power in his words. But there is power in yours because you are a king-priests in Christ.  

So instead of agreeing with him, believe and declare, “I will not die young. With long life He will satisfy me and show me His salvation.” Say, “The Lord will make my way prosperous and give me good success.” Use your double portion of speaking power and see these blessings come to pass. This is a life changing revelation that all believers to know and act upon.
