Scientist conclude the human body is over seventy percent water. All of life on earth depends intrinsically upon water for survival and good health. It is a known fact that the health of waters is often directly related to and responsible for the health of a community.
For over ten years, Japanese Scientist Dr. Masaro Enoto has been studying and experimenting with the effect words have on water. Not just any words though, he uses words of good and blessing on one side of the experiment. And on the other side he would use words of bad and cursing. These experiments have resulted in a book called Messages from Water.
Before using Dr. Enoto’s findings in my example, I must say I do not endorse his book as a good Christian book. He has mixed Christian principles and Buddha’s philosophies. I believe all basic science laws and principles are just that, basic Science. They originate from the Father, our creator but they don’t change whether we believe that or not.
For example, the Law of Gravity and the Law of Aerodynamics will still operate the same whether I know what to call it or not. Whether I believe in God or I don’t. With that said, here are his findings:
Dr. Enoto’s experiment starts with the scientist taking a glass of pure spring water from his area in Japan, freezing it and observing it under a microscope at molecular level. It appeared light and crystalline reflecting the light. Then he took a toxin filled glass of water from a nearby polluted river, froze a few droplets and observed it under the microscope and then photographed it. It appeared dark almost black in some spots.
The second half of the experiment involved taking another two glasses of water respectively from the spring and the toxic water filled container speaking words to it and immediately freezing it. The toxic glass of water from the river they spoke words of good to it saying, “You are so beautiful, wonderful, and good.”
The other glass of spring water they spoke curses to it saying, “You are ugly, you make me sick! I will kill you!” They discovered the frozen spring water with curses spoken to it, observed under the microscope was dark, gnarled and black in some spots. But the frozen toxic water with good spoken to it was observed as light whimsical shaped pattern under the microscope.32
Through the years as the Occult and Witchcraft gained popularity the word ‘curse’ has become a familiar term in our American culture and society. It still strikes fear in the heart of some. On the other hand, the word ‘blessing’ seems to have lost its power. It has become a courteous good-bye or ‘God bless you’ between Christian families and groups. With little power or understanding Christians recite the names of family members praying, “God bless Mama, Daddy, Johnnie, Susie and my friend Todd.
The Japanese scientist through his experiment simply tapped into an age-old God-inspired principle that is as basic and changeless as the scientific laws, I mentioned earlier. That principle is ‘the power of death and life are in the tongue.’ In general, to bless is to honor, praise and salute another. As a Christian, to be blessed is to be empowered for prosperity, success and longevity.
The blessing began with God who after creating Mankind in His own image blessed them. (Genesis 1:27-28) Other examples of God’s blessing being spoken are:
- I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing. (Genesis. 12:2)
- From the time he put him in charge of his household and of all that he owned, the Lord blessed the household of the Egyptian because of Joseph. The blessing of the Lord was on everything Potiphar had, both in the house and in the field. (Gen. 39:5)
- The Ark of the Lord remained in the house of Obed-Edom the Gittite for three months and the Lord blessed him and his entire household. (2 Sam. 6:11)
- Following the example of our creator God, Hebrew families developed a tradition of blessing their children. Though linked to the birthright, the blessing was different. The birthright was intended primarily for the first-born child. A specific and personalized blessing was reserved for each child in the family. (Gary Smalley & John Trent, “The Power of Blessing.”)
In the Old Testament tradition, the blessing would invoke (activate) God’s protection, prosperity and success. When God blessed, nothing could turn it away. A curse could come but it would be squelched, overpowered, removed by the stronger power of blessing.
In Numbers 11, when Balak attempted to bribe Balaam to curse the Israelites, God said, “You shall not curse the people, for they are blessed.” (Numbers 22:12) In Numbers 23 Balaam says, “God is not a man, that he should lie; He doesn’t change his mind like humans do. Has he ever promised, without doing what he said? Look! I have received a command to bless them. For God has blessed them and I cannot reverse it.” (Numbers 23:19-24a TLB)
In a similar manner, no matter what evil has been spoken over our lives, remember God has the last word on our blessing. You have the Divine Yes! His word through Christ is already, yes and amen, you are BLESSED.
I encourage you to begin to, effectively, activate the power of life through blessing. Our sponsors, children, parents and others need our power to bless their life. There are lots of ways to communicate a blessing. As with any improvement or change first assess what you have been doing. When was the last time you:
- Cooked your family’s favorite meal.
- Dressed up for your spouse.
- Played over an hour with your children.
- Invited someone to dinner after Church.
- Just listened to someone’s troubles without judging.
You can increase your power to bless just by beginning to look for small ways to bless your family and those around you. According to the Old and New Testament, there are elements designed to release a blessing. The blessing is released and activated when you do, specifically, when you touch in faith releases a blessing or when you speak in faith, the blessing.
So reach out and begin to use the power of blessing in your area of influence. Your children, your co-workers, your church family, your world all can benefit from your power to heal, nurture or simply bless in faith.
Growing in the power of blessing,
