Jentezen Franklin quotes (showing 1-30 of 31)

“We need to send our words out in the direction we want them to go. In other words, we need to start talking victory when we’re staring at defeat. We need to start talking healing when we’re feeling sick. We need to start blessing and prosperity when we don’t have anything. We need to speak about marching when we feel like quitting.”
Jentezen Franklin, Believe That You Can: Moving with Faith and Tenacity to the Dream God Has Given You
“Unless you put prayer with your fasting, there is no need to fast. If it doesn't mean anything to you, it won't mean anything to God.

I can do without a lot of things, but I cannot do anything without Jesus.

Moses fasted. Elijah fasted forty days. Paul fasted fourteen days. Jesus fasted forty days. If the children of God do not fast, how will we ever fit into the armor of God?

Fasting is not a requirement; it is a choice. It is a vow you choose to make to pursue God on a deeper level. The entire time that you are on a fast you are acknowledging God. When you are feeling hungry, empty, and weak, you connect with God without all the clutter. In that way fasting is a time vow. It is also a discipline vow. Fasting, especially a longer fast, strengthens your character in every area of your life.

If you do not have the power of a made-up mind to honor God with your body, you will be at the mercy of the lust of your flesh.

If failure is not a possibility, then success doesn’t mean anything.

Prayer and fasting were a big part of Jesus’s life. Why should it be such a small part of yours? If Jesus needed to fast, how much greater is our need to fast?

If we are not drawing closer to God, we are drifting farther from Him.

I am not in this for what I can get out of Jesus. I’m in this because He loved me first and gave Himself for me. I have nothing to go back to. I crossed that bridge a long time ago. The enemy, this world, difficult circumstances—it doesn’t matter. I’ll still be in church. I am never going to walk away from God.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Fasting Edge: Recover Your Passion. Recapture Your Dream. Restore Your Joy
“We must get to the place where we are desperate for God again. We must begin to desire Him more than food or drink. Let us be filled with the Bread of Life instead of the refuse of religion. Begin to make fasting a regular discipline, and see how God answers your hunger!”

“The secret to tapping into the supernatural is for you to have the courage to do the natural first.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Fearless Life: Live Worry-Free No Matter What Happens
“When you get stubborn and out of God’s will, usually it is the well-intentioned whom you will kick and mistreat.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Amazing Discernment of Women
“Every sin begins with a thought.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Spirit of Python: Exposing Satan's Plan to Squeeze the Life Out of You
“One of Satan’s greatest fears is that women will find out who they really are and what a significant role they play in his ultimate downfall. Women have not been relegated to mere privates in God’s army, rather they have been chosen as key players. The biblical record shows that God will use women to transform the world.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Amazing Discernment of Women
“The sixth sign that you are under spiritual attack is that old iniquities begin to resurface in your life. What is an iniquity? Some consider iniquities to be those old habits that your soul wants to fall back on when things don’t seem to be going your way—things like smoking, drug abuse, excessive drinking, visiting the bars or clubs, indulging the flesh.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Spirit of Python: Exposing Satan's Plan to Squeeze the Life Out of You
“I posed the question that if Jesus could have done what He was sent to do on this earth without fasting, why did He fast?”
Jentezen Franklin, The fasting Edge
“One of the greatest tragedies of prayerlessness is the unemployment of angels. Millions of angels line up at heaven’s unemployment office when no one on earth prays to God. Angels are attracted to the place of prayer. In Acts 12:5, the church prayed without ceasing for Peter, and an angel came and touched him. When Peter awakened, the chains fell off as a result of the angel’s touch and he was freed.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Amazing Discernment of Women
“I heard about a lady whose doctor told her, “You’ve got rabies.” Immediately, she pulled out a pad and pen and began writing. Thinking she was making out her will, the doctor said, “No, no, this doesn’t mean you’re going to die. There’s a cure.” “I know that,” she said. “I’m making a list of people I’m going to bite.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Amazing Discernment of Women
“That is why Paul tells us not to be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of our minds (Rom. 12:2). We have to put off the old self and renew our minds so that we give no foothold to the devil, so that we leave no open doors for the python and his brood of vipers to enter into our lives.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Spirit of Python: Exposing Satan's Plan to Squeeze the Life Out of You
“The power of God is released when believers choose not to be conformed to the world’s ways but be transformed in their minds, wills, and emotions by God’s Word. Paul said in Romans 1:16 that he wasn’t ashamed of the gospel of Christ because it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes.”

“When James taught about temptation, he said each of us is tempted when we are drawn away by our own desires. “Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death” (James 1:15).”

“want to say something that might sound surprising: the greatest battle for your soul is not the war going on between angels and demons; it is the war going on in between your ears. The battle starts with how you think and the “snake eggs” you allow the enemy to lay in your head. Brutal mass killings in America are tragically becoming more common as of late. These horrific events have stirred major controversies over gun violence and gun laws. I’m not here to enter that debate, but I will tell you that taking all the guns away will not take care of the problem because the “snake eggs” will still exist. The young men who shot up their high school years ago did not suddenly come up with the idea. Neither did the man who shot innocent victims at a movie theater. Like the man who slaughtered innocent children and adults in Connecticut, they had been carrying around those demonically inspired thoughts for weeks, maybe months, perhaps even years—like eggs waiting to hatch. The greatest battle for your soul is not the war going on between angels and demons; it is the war going on in between your ears. It starts with a thought, and that thought is like an egg that Satan puts in your head. I often call these snake eggs “thought bombs.” The”

“problem is, eggs hatch.”

“DAY 3: Getting Past Your Quitting Point FASTING STIRS A hunger in your spirit that goes deeper than any temporary hunger you experience in your flesh. When you hunger for God, He will fill you! Jesus went through cities where He could do no miracles—because there was no hunger. In this day, God is saying, “I’m looking for somebody who wants something. I’m looking for somebody who will do more than show up for another church service, but they will hunger for that which I want to place in them!”

“You’ve probably heard the old saying, “You can’t stop a bird from flying over your head, but you don’t have to let it nest in your hair.” You can’t always control what appears before your eyes, but you can control how long you look. You can’t control every thought that comes into your mind, but you can control how long you dwell on that thought.”

“If Jesus could have accomplished all He came to do without fasting, why would He fast? The Son of God fasted because He knew there were supernatural things that could only be released that way. How much more should fasting be a common practice in our lives? Fasting”

Jentezen Franklin, The Amazing Discernment of Women
“Isaiah used words like fallen, cut down, and brought down. In the last verses he describes how shocked people will be when they see Satan in his defeated state—as the small, powerless demon that he is. They will probably need to squint their eyes a little to see him and wonder how he did so much damage. Satan has been defeated, but he still wreaks havoc in the world. Where then does he get his power?”
Jentezen Franklin, The Spirit of Python: Exposing Satan's Plan to Squeeze the Life Out of You
“¿Por qué? La atmósfera es adecuada para que un plátano crezca en Jamaica, pero no es adecuada en Alaska. Hay algo en la atmósfera de un club nocturno—las luces, la música, el baile—que crea un ambiente adecuado para el pecado. La atmósfera crea un clima, y el clima crea una cultura. Si el enemigo puede hacer que entremos en esa cultura, sabe que puede hacer que pequemos.”
Jentezen Franklin, El espiritu de piton: El plan de Satanas que busca exprimirle la vida
“If Jesus could have accomplished all He came to do without fasting, why would He fast? The Son of God fasted because He knew there were supernatural things that could only be released that way. How much more should fasting be a common practice in our lives?”

“Many women spend their lives pretending to be stupid because their husbands can’t handle an equal!”

“Alguien apasionado por Dios se complace en las cosas de Dios.”

“I have a ministry where I go into prisons and jails full-time. But I’ll be honest with you; I’m a preacher, and I’m filled with the Holy Spirit, but God told me I had a spirit of gluttony on me. That is why I began this fast. I didn’t ask for God to open doors; I told God I was sick of the spirit of gluttony cheating me out of the spiritual things God had for my life and locking doors and locking finances and locking everything else that God has for me.”
Jentezen Franklin, Fasting: Opening the Door to a Deeper, More Intimate, More Powerful Relationship With God
“God placed Adam in the Garden of Eden with dominion over it to keep it prospering and protected. When Adam discovered that the “old serpent” had been whispering to his wife, he had the authority to kick it out—but he chose not to do so. Instead, Adam chose to rebel against the specific instruction God gave him not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Gen. 2:17). Sin found a way into that garden and enticed Eve through her mind, will, and emotions.”
Jentezen Franklin, The Spirit of Python: Exposing Satan's Plan to Squeeze the Life Out of You
“The discipline of fasting releases the anointing, the favor, and the blessing of God in the life of a Christian.”
