I Can Call into Existence and Name things with Purpose


By Ricardo ‘Reason’ Butler


Today’s Word study on our identity and potential in Christ comes from Genesis 1:6-8, which says,


“And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.” (KJV).


“God spoke: ‘Sky! In the middle of the waters; separate water from water!’ God made sky. He separated the water under sky from the water above sky. And there it was: He named sky the Heavens; it was evening, it was morning—Day Two.” (The Message).


I remember when I was a teen; I would say dumb stuff all the time. But for some reason my words and declarations worked against me. I say that because every time I decreed something the opposite would happen in my life. Here are some of the stupid things I spoke out loud.


  • I’ll never move out of my mom’s house!
  • I’ll never get my own place!
  • I’ll never get married!
  • I’ll never have kids!
  • I’ll never join the military!
  • I’ll never get a divorce!
  • I’ll never go to jail!
  • I’ll never serve God!
  • I’ll never go to church!
  • I’ll never become a pastor!
  • I’ll never launch or start a church!


That’s just a few of the dumb things I used to say. It seems to me I should have spoken the opposite to get the desired results that I wanted in my life.


In my ignorance I didn’t understand the whole word have power in them idea. But there are some in the church and in the world who do know this power but are not using it correctly. They are using it for their own agendas as well as to wound others with through word warfare.


I am not talking about the name it and claim it movement. I’m talking about name it and give it life and purpose. You can create and give name and purpose to your products or ministries or kids or any other thing that you birth naturally or spiritually.


Adam was in the Garden using this God-given ability when he named and gave purpose to all of the animals and then to his wife Eve and their kids.


You’ve got the vocal power of God to take His Words and His authority with God honoring responsibility to speak into some of the issues and situations going on in our world today.


I am pretty sure you can think of ONE thing in the news that bothered you on the news this week. What did you say about it? What was the first word that came out of your mouth? Here’s one: What did President Trump do this week that set you off? Trump is always trending on the front page of Yahoo.com.


The first thing that comes out of our mouth is usually negative. How about we,


“… of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure … to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all, … before him [God] whom he [Abraham] believed, even God, who quickeneth [gives life to] the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were. Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become … according to that which was spoken … And being not weak in faith … He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.” (Romans 4:16-22).


What would happen if when you turned on the news and viewed everything you saw through the eyes, ears, mind, and heart of God and spoke according to being fully persuaded of the plan of God for this world?


Why not we name and call “war-torn” areas of our world lands of peace? Why not we call and name ghettos areas of beauty? If Jesus could look at a storm in the sea and say “Peace and be still” and it becomes the reality that He was fully persuaded to see through the eyes of His Father, and then we can look at the negative people, places, and things in our world and do likewise.


So next time you turn on the news, for example, and you see something, begin to think of a Word from the Scripture that contradicts the natural with God’s Spiritual reality.


When you see President Trump on the TV, how about you think of God’s truth and speak it out loud and say,


“Thou shalt not speak evil of the ruler of thy people. (Acts 23:5).


President Trump is the ruler of the nation in which I live as appointed by God. I don’t care what you believe; all world leaders are set up and approved by God, not the devil. God sends the devil to influence them, but it is GOD who is in control.


“THE KING’S HEART IS IN THE HAND OF THE LORD, as the rivers [rillets—small brooks] of water: He [GOD] TURNETH [directs] it [the king’s hearts (and God shows no favoritism so this includes ALL mankind and world leaders)] whithersoever He [GOD] WILL [desires]. Every way of a man is right IN HIS OWN EYES: but the LORD PONDERETH [Heb: ‘to balance, measure out (by weight or dimension); to arrange, equalize, through the idea of leveling (mentally estimate, test):–bear up, direct, be equal or unequal, mete, ponder, tell, weigh’] THE HEARTS. (Proverbs 21:1-2).


“And the LORD HARDENED [Heb: chazaq, ‘to make strong and courageous, strengthen, cure, repair, fortify, obstinate’] THE HEART of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand. (Exodus 14:8).


“And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar [king of Babylon will] lifted up mine eyes unto [God] heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honored Him that liveth for ever [Heb: ‘for all ages’], Whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom is from generation to generation: and all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing [‘nothing’ is pretty small]: and HE DOETH ACCORDING TO HIS WILL in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none… [How many? ‘NONE.’ How many are left out? ‘NONE.’ How many have a free will that can will against God’s declared intentions? ‘NONE.’ How many stubborn, dyed-in-the-wool, free-willers will repent and believe this declaration of God Himself? ‘NONE.’] … and NONE can stay [STOP] His [GOD’S] hand, or say unto Him, What doest Thou? [It doesn’t get any clearer than this. If you can’t accept this truth and repent of your egotistical, self worth, and self superiority, thinking that you can thwart the very intentions of God’s Own will any time you desire, then you too will be PUNISHED for your stout and arrogant heart:] Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, all [GOD’S] Whose works are Truth, and His ways justice: and those that walk in pride He is able to abase [HUMBLE].” (Daniel 4:34-35 & 37).


God told Daniel that only the “wise” would understand these things:


“And He said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and NONE of the wicked shall understand; but the WISE shall understand.” (Daniel 12:9-10).


Remember that God repeats for emphasis those things that are extremely important:




“… to the intent that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomsoever He will …(Dan. 4:17).




“… and seven times shall pass over you, till you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomsoever He will.” (Ver. 25).




“… till you shall have known that the heavens do rule …” (Verse 26).




“… seven times shall pass over you until you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomsoever He will.” (Ver. 32).




“… and I blessed the Most High and I praised and honored Him … and He does according to HIS WILL in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth and NONE can stay His hand …” (Ver. 34-35).




“… And he was driven from the sons of men, and his heart was made like the beasts … till he knew that the Most High God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that He appoints over it whomsoever He will.” (Daniel 5:21).


Can we now believe that it is important to understand that God sets up these world leaders and that it is not free to do anything independent of God and His purpose? Does not the mere fact that God repeats this grand declaration six times on two pages prove just how very, very important this teaching is? Where else has God repeated Himself six times on two pages regarding one aspect of man’s nature which must be changed?


Did not Nebuchadnezzar have a “will?” Of course, he did. Did he not claim that it was by his own will that he accomplished what he did in his great kingdom? Of course, he did. Did God show him that his thinking and philosophy of life and self-determinism was wrong? Yes, He did. Did the king acknowledge his own stupidity and vanity? Yes, he did. Does the king give us a wise warning as to what God will do to all others world leaders who have this same arrogant belief that they can do things independent of God through their fabled free will? A word to the wise is sufficient.


So voting holds no real weight. God’s will do because God’s will is HIS reality and it should be ours. When we have a powerful revelation and understanding of God’s Reality—the KINGDOM AND GOVERNMENT OF GOD—then when we hear or see bad news and negative things then we can begin to call into existence and name things with purpose according to God’s reality of His ruling government on earth since we are KINGS and PRIESTS unto God (Rev. 1:6 & Rev. 5:10).
