What Do You WANT?
I want to go to Heaven!
I (lack) to go to Heaven! Is what you are actually declaring over yourself.
You mean, you desire, or would like to go to Heaven!
As we were preparing this teaching, we truly thought, “The Lord must really & truly love us, because he saw fit to share with us to correct this area of our speech.” I know not everyone has been given this revelation. Who are the people who resist the Holy Spirit the most? (Acts 7:51) We have found people in the church resist the Lord the most. We resist the changes he brings forth and do all we can to fight to stay in our old ways. Thank God for his Grace and his Mercies!
So the question today is, What Do You Want? When we started to search out the true hidden meaning behind the word WANT, we really shivered, because this word was a large part of our vocabulary without us even noticing how much we used it. Even when I, the Apostle, touched on it briefly in 2007, we still didn’t get what the Lord was doing, even though we truly tried to walk in the change, we were doing it without revelation. There is something about revelation that allows our spirit to embrace and walk in the Lord’s truths. It’s like there’s an extra anointing from the Holy Ghost to help and assist us in fulfilling that Divine change.
Ps. 23:1b, want (2637) In the S.C. Hebrew “I shall not Want”; to lack, to fail, lessen, be abated, bereave, decrease, (cause to) fail, (have) lack, make lower.
There is no passage of scripture that defines the word WANT as something we should desire, but people often say, "I want" without realizing exactly what they are speaking over themselves, which is: a negative, nought, that which shall not be, nor shall it come to pass, on contrariwise.
When a person speaks out of their mouths” I WANT,” it actually means I lack, I fail, or I be lessen, I be abated, I bereave, I decrease, or I make lower. In essence, when ministers say, "God Wants us to," they actually mean "God lacks us to," or when people say “I Want God to” they are really saying, "I lack God to do," etc. There is power in Y(OUR) words!
Jesus declared in the book of Mark 11:23g, he shall have whatsoever he saith. If a person does not learn to use their words correctly, it will eventually take a toll on their lives and the lives of those around them or associated with them directly. There is a price to pay for not using words aright! It will show up eventually?
Below are scriptures using want, wanted, and wanting and the proper meaning according to the Strong's Concordance (S.C.) of the Bible.
WANT and WANTED
- Deut. 28:48 (2640): poverty, in want of.
- Judges 18:10 (4270): deficiency, hence impoverishment, lack, need, penury, poor, poverty, want.
- Job 24:8 (1097): failure, nothing or destruction, corruption, for lack of, none, not, without.
- Job 30:3 (2639): lack, hence destitution, poverty, want.
- Prov. 10:21 (2638): lacking, hence without, destitute, fail, have need, lack, and void.
- Prov. 13:23 (3808): not, no, less, nay, neither, never, of nought, for want, without.
- Prov. 14:28 (657): no further, less than nothing, thing of nought, without.
- Jer. 33:17 (3772): to cut (down, off), destroy, fail, lose, perish, utterly want, be asunder.
- Mark 12:44 (5304): a falling short, penury.
- Luke 15:14 (5302): (want) to be inferior, to fall short, (be deficient) come behind (short), be destitute, fall, lack, suffer need, (be in) want, be the worse.
- 2 Cor. 9:12 (5303): deficit, poverty, that which is behind (short), (that which was) lack(ing), penury.
- Phil 4:11 (5304): a falling short, penury.
- Eccl. 1:15 (2642): deficiency, wanting.
- Dan 5:27 (2627): deficient.
- James 1:4 (3007): to fail or be absent, be destitute, lack.
Additionally, the two most used definitions of WANT in the M.W.C.D. are to be needy or destitute and to have or feel need.
All this time we have been using the word WANT incorrectly and the Lord saw fit to correct us. It has to be because he loves us. If you think about it long enough you will realize that our prayers and most of what we say out of our mouth are contradicted when we use the word WANT incorrectly.
Some good examples given below would be when we in all sincerity ask the Lord by saying:
- "I want you to save John or Jane Lord". What you really asked the Lord was to NOT save those people. The word "want" in your prayer request meant: "I Lack you to save them!"
- "I want (I Lack) to be saved Lord."
- "I want (I Lack) to be in your perfect will Lord."
- Oh! How often have you heard the phase: "God wants (God Lacks) you to be Blessed."
The very words which are spoken in ignorance and so innocently are all nullified by the one word WANT (LACK), when improperly used!
It is better to say that "They NEED to be saved Lord" whether it be a he or a she you're praying about or maybe a couple which you have been praying for. Even if only for yourself "I would really like to be saved Lord", or "I DESIRE your perfect will for my life Lord;" these are just some examples. Instead of us rebelling against the changes the Lord is bringing forth, let us strive to use the proper words so we will not speak evil over ourselves. Prov. 6:2 declares: Thou art snared with the words of thy mouth, thou are taken with the words of thy mouth. Snared (3369) in the S.C. Hebrew means: (to lay a) snare,[TRAP]. In the M.W.C.D, snare means something by which one is entangled, deeply involved in difficulties; to capture by or as if by use of a [TRAP] to entangle or hold as if in a snare. I remind you of Jesus’ words in Mark 11:23g once again “You shall have whatsoever you saith.” There is power in your words, therefore, use them aright. The Lord has given us power to speak things into existence, Ro. 4:17f, even as he did.
In Psalm 37:4 the Lord promises to give us the desires of our heart. Desire (4862) in the S.C. Hebrew means a request, desire, and petition.
In Psalm 21:2 desire (8378) means in the S.C. Hebrew a longing, a delight, satisfaction, desire, exceedingly, greedily, and pleasant.
Lastly, in the M.W.C.D. the most often used definition for the word DESIRE means to long or to hope for. There is a difference between Want, Need and Desire, when using these words give heed. Better to use I would like to, or I need to, even better would be I desire to, or I pray the Lord grants...
So the answer to the question is:
I SHALL NOT (LACK) WANT!
WHEN THE LORD CHOSE TO REVEAL TO ATcicJ Ministries THAT IMPROPER USE OF THIS WORD CAUSES SOMETHING NEGATIVE TO HAPPEN IN ONE’S LIFE, OR TO PREVENT THE GOOD TO COME UPON A PERSON’S LIFE, THE CORRECTION HAD TO BE TAUGHT CONCERNING PROPER USE OF THE WORD [WANT] TO THOSE IN ATcicJ Ministries. HE REVEALS IT TO THOSE WHICH ARE HUMBLE, THAT THEY MIGHT BE EDIFIED IN THE REVELATION RECEIVED. THE LORD MAY CHOOSE TO REVEAL SUCH THINGS TO HIS BODY TO THOSE HE KNOWS WHO WILL OPERATE IN THE CORRECTION. AS AN APOSTLE OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, I ASK THAT YOU RIGHTLY USE THE WORD [WANT]. When you begin to check your words as you are speaking on a daily basis. You will see and experience the change for yourself. WOW!
Do not be discouraged if it does not change overnight, it takes time to break bad habits.
