I still remember the time, 11 years ago, when I was sitting at the side of my bed and the Lord showed me the vision of a simple chip. It had multiple cameras on that one chip. For the next year I shared that vision with numerous engineers, and most of the time they laughed at my simple vision.
But then one company understood the vision and as a result, the “Phantom 65 Camera” was built. In 2012 I was at a show with the owner of the camera company, and I tried to explain to him that the chip was actually designed to do a whole lot more than everyone was using it for.
But since the company was making so much money on the camera’s ability to shoot 10,000 frames a second, it wasn’t interested in anything else the camera could do. They could not listen to more simple talk because the blessings from the first simple talk rewarded them so greatly that they did not want to receive any more.
God’s words are so simple but so powerful: “The words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are life.” These words that I quoted from Jesus are so simple, yet extremely loaded with extra goodies. It is like Mary Poppins when she says, “A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” Of course the problem that I’m describing is that many times we get addicted to the sugar and we quit taking the medicine. Now I want to tell you something that shows why “God’s ways are not our ways.”
When God speaks a word to you, His word is “simple talk.” By this I mean it is layered with all kinds of help in it. This, however, is found in the spirit of the word that goes beyond the actual definition. It actually goes into the thought and the intent of the word itself. To understand this complicated truth we must look at it like a little child.
When a father tells his son, “Jump! Trust me I’ll catch you,” the son does not calculate the falling velocity or the force of impact. Instead, all questions are erased and replaced by his father’s simple words: “Trust me.”
So it is with the simple words that God gives you every day. When you follow His simple words, every flavor of truth goes into your life and body, and you become younger, happier, and more joyful every day through your obedience.
This truth works on a grand scale. The prophet Paul Cain spoke to George Bush senior and said, “Pull out of Iraq and stop the attack.” The dad listened to these “simple words.” But years later, when the son was preparing to attack Iraq, the same prophet told him, “Don’t do it.”
Though the prophetic word was simple, its implications were immense, and in the upcoming months we will see if it entirely removes the Bush family’s influence from the politics of America. I know I said a lot in that last statement, so please pray about it and discern what you see in the Spirit. I believe this exercise will show you personally how far the simple talk of God goes.
Now back to the subject of the Phantom 65 camera. As I told you, the chip can go much further. A year ago I filed a patent on its ability to change filming forever. As of yet I haven’t met with someone about this new concept being so simple yet so true.
But the concept is hard to see because, as C.S. Lewis says in his book Chronicles of Narnia, “it is a deeper magic.” So is the simple answer to receiving God’s super simple truth, and accepting all the layers of help that He works in you personally through your obedience.
