 “Not by might nor by power but by My Ruach [Spirit] says YHVH tzevaoth [hosts or
armies] [Zecharyah -Zechariah4:6]

It is by His Spirit that we speak, claim,
prophesy, & expect miracles in our lives.

As we declare that which already exists in heavens[ His blessings, financial favor, healing, new body parts, and so on]  His messengers the angels give heed to His voice and His word on our tongue and in our heart.  They hear us decree YHVH’S will for our lives, to give us life abundant in joy, peace, and so they come to bring heaven in earth!

If we believe in Yeshua, He gives us the keys to the kingdom of heaven: repent; believe, receive; ask, pray, knock, seek, obey and trust! These keys do open doors to heaven and blessings do come!

On the other hand, we can have a dumb spirit in
us if we are not giving testimony, speaking the Word, prophesying,
praying for others, preaching the gospel, nor loving others nor Elohim Almighty God.
For example, there are  2 blind men [for the 2 houses of Yisra’el] in Matthew 9:27,
who followed Yeshua,  as they shouted to Him , “Ben David, Son of David! Take pity on us!”
They did knock, seek & find Him. It says when Yeshua entered the
house, the blind men came up. What house? Y’shua entered their house,
their temple, of the Ruach .  When Y’shua ben David entered their house,
they were spiritually blind . He touched the 2 blind men’s eyes,
& their spiritual sight was restored. Their dumb spirit was gone too,
for “…they went away & talked about Him throughout the district.”
They may have even brought a demon possessed man to Yeshua, for it
says:

              ” As they were going, a man controlled by a
demon & unable to speak was brought to Yeshua. After the demon was
expelled the man who had been dumb spoke & the crowds were amazed. ‘Nothing like this has ever been seen in Yisra’el!’ [Matthew 9:32-33] “.

The healed man, once bound & unable to speak, now amazed all of the 2 houses of Yisra’el.
Inability to speak about YHVH, to praise His Name, to glorify Him may
indicate a dumb spirit. Once this dumb spirit is gone by the Ru-ach
HaKodesh [the Holy Spirit] in the Name of Yeshua, we can speak to anyone, we can shout
from the rooftops, we can glorify & praise His Name wherever we are.
We are no longer bound.  When we are no longer bound, the Ru-ach has
freedom , & in freedom the Ru-ach reigns, & miracles happen.

“Then some people brought Him a man controlled by demons who was blind & mute; & Yeshua [ben David] healed him, so he could both speak & see. [Matthew 12:22]”

  •   “Dumb” does not refer to one’s mental capacity ; rather dumb is the state of voluntary or involuntary stillness of voice, as in tongue-tied or speechless. In Hebrew, dumb is “il-ame’ ” from “aw-lam“.

Moshe complained to YHVH, saying he was a terrible speaker &
stuttered. YHVH told him , who gives a person a mouth?

“Who makes a person deaf or dumb, keen-sighted or blind? Isn’t it I , YHVH? Now,
therefore, go; & I will be with your mouth & will teach you what
to say [Exodus 4:10-12]”.

This should encourage anyone who feels they
can neither preach nor teach the Word.

Involuntary stillness of voice also came to the Zecharyah , priest in the Temple, in
Luke 1:20, as he was visited by Gavri’el the angel [Luke 1:8-19].
Z’charyah feared & doubted when told Elisheva [Elizabeth] would bear
a son, who would bring joy & delight, & turn many of the people
of Yisrael to YHVH. “Now because you don’t believe what I said, which
will be fulfilled when the time comes, you will be silent, unable to speak until
the day these things take place.” Once he believed, his mouth opened,
& Z’charyah prophesied a heartfelt blessing on his newborn,
Yochannan [John the Immerser].

“And his mouth was opened immediately, & his tongue loosed & he spoke & praised YHWH.”

“And …Z’charyah was filled with the Ruach Hakodesh, and prophesied, saying…”. [v.64-79]
Miracles still happen. The Messiah & the Immerser came to prepare
us for the Kingdom of Heaven.  With repentence and a clean spirit within
us, the Ru-ach Hakodesh, we no longer should have a dumb spirit. We are
saved, bestowed with mercies, & delivered, that we might serve YHVH
without fear, in set-apartness & righteousness before Him, all the
days of our lives. We are ordained or appointed & anointed to go
before the face of Master YHVH Yeshua to prepare His ways; to give the
knowledge of salvation to His people , to give Light to them that sit in
darkness & in the shadow of death. Amen.

Thanks for the tender mercies of our Eloah! We have been visited by the Dayspring from on High! Halleluyah!
