Understanding the power of faith


A graphic of understanding the power of faith

What is faith?

Let first define faith by stating what faith is not:

  • Faith is not waiting.
  • Faith is not a believe system.

Faith is putting God’s word to work.

“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your ownselves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” Jms.1:22-25

“Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works….But with thou know, O vain a man, that faith without works is dead.” Jms.2:17-18/20

Faith is an action. It means to take scriptural calculated step in all spheres of life’s affairs

“And behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment. For she said within herself, if I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.” Mat.9:20-21

Why do I need faith?

  • You need faith because faith is our authentic life wire that connect us the our authentic power source (God). men live by faith.

“For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.” Rom.1:17.

“Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.”  Hab.2:4

  • These scriptures are not coincidental. Faith is the fuel that keeps the aircraft of our life flying. With faith, you are on the go, there is no stumbling block on the way. All mountains are made plains.
  • You need faith because faith is our purchasing power in the miraculous market.

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” Heb.11:6.

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavereth; for he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord. A double-minded is unstable in all his ways.” Jms.1:5-8.

  • You need faith because faith confers rest in a seemingly impossible situation. Seeing into the spiritual realm always bring about. You will so settled about issues that you can’t be daunted by the empty threat of the devil.

This was why Jesus could afford to sleep in the midst of storm even while His disciples were wearing out themselves frantically in a bid to save their lives. But when they remembered to invite Him into the issue, He calmed the storm. Until you remember to invite Jesus into your issues don’t expect the storm over your life to be calmed.

“And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him. Master, carest thou not that we perish: and he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm. Mark.4:38

Understanding the power of faith.

A time came when the Syrian was waging war against Isreal, whenever they tried to made war plane the secret got leaked into Elisha – the Prophet of God – through spiritual intervention.

The Syrian army were sent to arrest the prophet, Gehasi – the prophet’s servant was almost paralyzed with fear because he couldn’t see into the realm of the spirit. But, when the Prophet prayed for his eyes to be popped open.

Gehazi too could see the host of angels of God that encamped them. They were both at rest. And our God who is a consuming fire responded.

Fear and anxiety are the cardinal evidence of doubt. Doubt is the opposite of faith. Anytime you find yourself fidgeting, it’s a sign of lack of faith. You can’t be faithful and be doubtful.

How do I build my faith?

  • Take a daily dose of God’s word.

“So the faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Rom.1:17

  • Engage in love with Christ. Obedience is the hallmark of our love. Simply put love in this way,  as a combination of what we receives, believes and obey.

“He that hath my commandments, and keepth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my father, and I will love him, and manifest myself to him.” Jn.14:21

“This is the love of God, that we should obey His commandments and His commmandments are not grevious.”

  • Renew your mind – You are what you think. In the realm of the spirit, any thought that you allow to hold grip upon you is regarded accomplished. God thinks and He thinks positive, if you are truly sons and daughters of God, then think positively.

“As he thinketh in his heart so he is.” Prov.23:7

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you. Saith the lord, thought of peace, and not evil, to give you an expected end.” Jer.29:11.

You can't see

  • Make bold declaration – It requires boldness to move God to confirms His word. Speak inline with what you believe. In the spirit realm, David already chopped off Goliath’s head with his mouth before the actual killing took place. Make positive sounds, decrees according to the way you want it in life. Watch out for what you release into the atmosphere. Remember, The angels are your servant and they will make sure that execute whatsoever you say.

Thou shall decree a thing and it shall be establish unto you” Job22:28

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” Prov.18:21

“For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” Lk.21:15

Your mouth is a destiny molder.

  • Pray in the Holy Ghost – The subject Holy Ghost is seldom discussed but is one of the most crucial topics. Build up your faith by engaging the Holy Ghost in your prayer life. Connect to the spirit world by speaking in tongues. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of obedience, excellence, revelation, etc.

”But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost.”  Jude.1:20. Don’t get it twisted, you need the help of the Holy Spirit more than anything else.

The scope of this is topic is limited to discussed fully who the Holy Ghost is. I will drop a link where you can learn more about the Holy Ghost and watch out for my subsequent posts – i will be discussing in details who is the Holy Ghost?

The Holy Spirit One Spirit Diverse In Its Operations.

kingdom addict


Soul winning is one of the vital buttons to press if you must live a fulfillment and meaningful life.

God promises us all things. There is nothing that your life demand that God cannot gives you. But the requirement is to become a kingdom addict. Everything excluding nothing has been promised: health, favour, wealth, success, marital fulfilment, academic success, etc. “All these things shall be added unto you.” Mat.6:33.

 

May I tell you this from the depth of my heart: what others are running after , dying to get will be running after you as you make the pursuit after souls your priority in life. You don’t have to struggle to make things happen in life.

 

God is committed to the welfare of those who are committed to the pursuit of His utmost  interest.

 

“Seek he first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.” Mat.6:33

 

God is the one who does the addition. Nothing goes down serving God. God does not reduce people, He expands people. God does not use people, He blesses people.

 

“Out of them shall proceed thanksgiving the voice of them that make merry. I will multiply them they shall never be small and I will also glorify them they shall never be few.” Jer.30:19

Nothing remain worse serving God. “All things” ROM.8:28. Not one thing, two things or three things. “All these things work together for good to them that love God.” ROM.8:28. Remember God says “All things” including your children, husband, wife, marriage, work, education, business and career.

 

Our passion for souls is the cardinal evidence of our love for God.

 

I’m not advising us neither admonishing us. Soul winning is a commandment. Kingdom focused prayer is an instruction. And every commandment of God is for our benefit.

 

“Ye have not chosen us but i have chosen you and ordained you that you should go out to bring forth fruit and your fruit should remain and whatever you ask in my name I will give unto  you.” Jn.15:16

 

Finally, God does not say thank you to anybody for doing anything, He blesses us in return. God does not reward group, He rewards individual.

 

“Behold I come quickly, my rewards are with me to give every man according to his work shall be.” Rev.22:12

 

 

 

The cheapest way to freedom


Freedom. Walking out of darkness.

Every natural happening has its supernatural antecedent. The supernatural is the backbone of life. Trying to lift a problem without the supernatural is like trying to lift a lorry without a jack.

The race is not to the swift neither the battle is to the strong. Life is ordinary toiling outside God’s factor. If you think you are smart that you can cause things to happen without God, this is another lie from the pit of hell. Those who are smarter than have gone.

The reason why you are frustrated about your situation is because you have not invited God to your issue. When the storm came the disciples of Jesus Christ were wearing themselves out frantically in a bid to save their life. Until they remember to invite Jesus into the matter, the storm persist.

Until your give your life to Christ and obey His instructions don’t except the storm of your life to be calmed.

But I fear lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve, through is subtilty, so your mind should be corrupted by the simplicity that is in Christ.2.Cor.11:3

Life is complex, there is simplicity in Christ that makes life simple, without Jesus you can do nothing.

“I am the vine, ye are the branches: he that abideth in me and I in him the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me he can do nothing.  If a man abideth not in me, he is cast forth as a branch; and is withered and men gathered them and cast them into the fire and they are burned.Jn.15:5-6

If you don’t want to be gathered by   natural men and the wicked (devil) for destruction, receives Jesus into your life and start obeying His commandments. All round blessings will become the order of the day for you.

“Whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty and continue therein he not being a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” Jms.1:25

Friend, I have brought to you the perfect law of liberty, embrace it and live. The word of God is the authentic way to freedom.

Possibilities


The most seemingly impossible situation can take a new shape. There is no situation that can be as hopeless as the dry bone in Eze.37. “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Mat.19:26

Who told you that you can never make it in life? You don’t need to know any mortal  man before you cause things to happened in life. “Those who do know their God shall be strong and do exploits.” Dan.11:32. Exploits are what eye hath not seen nor ear heard before. “But as it is written eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither enter into heart of men, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.1.Cor.2:9

The wine of love is the authentic way to break new grounds in our time. Love isn’t mystical at all. It simply means to plug into the frequency of the current of obedience to scriptural commandments. Our subscription into the commandments of the scripture is the hallmark of love.

“He that hath my commandment and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me and he that loveth me shall be loved by my father and I will manifest myself unto him.” Jn.14:21.

The surest way to make things happen in life is by keying into the idea of hunting after lost souls by praying for them and by reaching out to them on the harvest field. Every genuine soul hunter is a public figure. “They that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament, they that turn many to righteousness as stars forever.” Dan.12:3.

The kingdom of hell is not meant for humans, it’s meant for the devil and his cohorts. God’s heartbeat is to see everyone being rooted and established in his kingdom. “Seek he first the kingdom of God and its righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.” Mat.6:33.

Life doesn't makes sense outside God's factors

Everything that I need in life is in that scripture. Let that scripture rules your life forever and you will never regret it. I have never regret serving God genuinely.

It has been over three years now that I have been hunting after souls. I have never known a better last year.

I know a God’s servant that has been doing it for over 45years now, he is now in a never-end-well amount of wealth. He has five private jets, a university, and the biggest church on the planet.

He is one of the richest man ever liveth. I have been hunting after lost souls, yet I have never lack anything.  If you want to emerge among the world highflyers, then you have no choice than to buy into the idea of putting God’s word to work.

I believe that every of my follower will carry a heart for Christ. You will make it your lifestyle to intercede for the lost souls to be saved. It will become your lifestyle to pursue after God’s core interest. As you do it unrepentantly, all kinds of supernatural additions will come to be in all spheres of existence. You will all become record breakers in the name of Jesus.

Knowledge is priceless


Knowledge is the key to freedom.

Knowledge is priceless. It’s the key to freedom. You will have authority on any issue that understood. It is our understanding that make us outstanding in life.

The reason why you are frustrated is because you have not gained adequate knowledge on that issue of concern. So, it’s not your fault.

Darkness reigns until light appears. Principalities is not our problem. The truth is that many Christians – even pastors – are victims of ignorance. The devil has no power when knowledge is in place.

When light comes in darkness goes out.

If the devil could tempted Jesus who was given the Holy Spirit by no measure, he would tempt anybody. Thank God that Jesus applied the right word to dislodge the wicked.

During Jesus’ earthly ministry, he had a reading culture  (Lk.4:16). Paul advocated for studies by telling his ministry son, Timothy to study to show himself approved (2Tim.2:15). Daniel understood by books (Dan.9:3). Knowledge is the key to dominion. Anything you don’t understand might lead to abuse.

Only those who can settle down at delightful studies will benefit from the treasures of the book. You can’t lighted and be tormented. The devil needs your ignorance to molest you.

Knowledge is the key to freedom

The inheritance that you don’t know that your father has, you can’t claim it. Your father can’t be a baby maker and be a baby beggar (this applies to the barren). Plugging into the frequency of the covenant has qualified you for a sickness free life.

Jesus took, not coming to take, He took your infirmities and has been wounded and bruised so that you won’t suffer any (Mat.8:17).

He was poor so that you can be rich.

Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross – col.2:14

What can’t be found in Jesus must not be found in you as long as you’re obeying His instructions. If you can’t imagine Jesus in an accident wreck why should you be found in one.

You’re a citizen if heaven, there is no poverty, sickness, diseases, frustration, failure and any of such things at where you came from.

There nothing theoretical about serving God, serving God is simple. There is simplicity in Christ.

But I fear, lest by any means , as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ -2.cor:11:3

Our obedience to the demands of our covenant walk with God is the cheapest way to provoke the manifestation of God’s promises in all realms of existence. Until you plug into the frequency of covenant, don’t expect God’s blessings.

And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all the nations of the earth – Deu.28:1

Brethren, loose yourself from the shackles of religion and be real. Shake off your feet from the dust by embracing the truth.

 

 

 

 

 

The Reward’s mentality


The reward's mentality

You are not serving God for nothing you are serving God for something. God does not use people, He blesses people. God is not a taskmaster, God is a pay master.

I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth, I said not unto the seed of Jacob, seek ye me in vain: I the lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.” Is.45:19

You are not working for God, you are working with God. You are partnering with God. Every partner is entitle to dividend, you are entitled for reward.

The platform of stewardship is the platform of supernatural blessings. Every opportunity to serve God is an opportunity to get blessed. God doesn’t reduce people, He expands  people.

“And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them they shall never be few, I will also glorify them;  they shall not be small.” Jer.30:19

You can’t serve God and be small, you can’t serve God and be sicked, you can’t serve God and be stranded, you can’t serve God and be stagnated.

Our subscription to scriptural commandments is our surest bail out in these hard times. Until you buy into the idea of putting the word to work, supernatural rewards are not in view.

All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose” Rom.8:28.

Who loves God?

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me  shall be love of my father, I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” Jer.14:21

God mean everything He says. God is a commander. You can’t negotiate with him. Just do what he says.

Life is struggle outside obedience. Serving God will turn your sweat to sweet, failure to success, sickness to divine health, breakdown to breakthrough, weakness to strength, frustration to illumination, darkness to light.

Every ugly situation is in the list of disobedience. Obedience is the master key to the manifest God promises in all spheres of existence.

Serving God in truth and indeed will rewrite your story. You can’t serve God in vain. God does not reward group, He rewards individual. He rewards everyone according to his spiritual investment. So, everyman is responsible for the outcome of his life.

Friend, life is choice. Take new birth for instance, it’s a free gift but the convert has to believe and confess with mouth that he has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and saviour.

And, behold, I come quickly; my rewards are with me to give everyman according to his work shall be.” Rev.22:12.

Serving God is work. It’s a big time business. Jesus Christ says, I must be about my father’s business (Lk.2:49). Until obeying scriptural commandments becomes a must, supernatural rewards are farfetched.

The aces are in our hand. Choose life and witness no death. Choose light and be free from darkness and shackles of ignorance. Choose divine health and live a sickness free life. Choose abundance and suffer hunger no more. Choose success and failure will dog your path no more.

 

The end to tears


Tears and worries

If you think that your tears and weeping will ever move God, you’re very wrong. God is only moved by your faith. Our faith marveled God and provokes Him to stretch His arm towards us.

God has not called us to meditate on our problems, He has called to meditate on His word. You can’t normal meditating on your problems. The only authentic solution to your problems is to meditate – hover upon the deep at the creation – on God’s word and put the word to work.

“This book of law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous and have good success.” Jo’s.1:8

It works like fire

Your condition isn’t your portion. It’s ignorance to mistake your condition for your portion. Some believers will say this when they’re in trouble. “I believe God” “I believe he can do it” “but this is my cross” “i would have to bear it”.

If you can convince yourself that your blood can’t save an ant, you’ll know too well you can’t bear a cross – when you are not the saviour (Jesus Christ).

Hear this: there is only one cross it has been used; there is only one blood it has been shed. There is nothing that has a beginning that has no end. A light is always at the end of the tunnel. Whatsoever you might been going through has an expiry date.

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning (PS.30:5).

There is no weeping that is permitted to go beyond a night. No condition is permanent. There is an appointed time for the vision.

For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry (Hab.2:3)

Your tomorrow is determined by the level of your obedience to scriptural commandments today. You can’t be dedicated today and not be decorated tomorrow.

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God hath also highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name ( Phil.2:8-9)

Friend, loose yourself from the shackles of ignorance, shake off your feet from the dust and ride into your enthronement in Christ.
