True Faith

Faith is more powerful than any Disease. Faith is more powerful than the tallest tidal wave, or any force of nature. Faith is more powerful than a thousand hydrogen bombs going off at once, one of which is more powerful than an atomic bomb. Only true faith is like this. It really is, and you must see it this way, or you won’t see Faith properly.

The Bible says God created the entire Universe by Faith. It’s how He’s going to create the next one. Faith is powerful stuff and you and I only need a drop of it. Jesus said you could move mountains with a mustard seed amount of Faith. Well if you’ve ever seen a mustard seed you could fit a dozen of them into most drops.

Now there is an element of Faith that is like a tool, and you need to use the right tool for the job. Meaning, if you need Healing then you have to Feed on the dozens of Scriptures that speak of and promise Healing, and so on – for every different need. Financial, physical, wisdom and insight, strength and strategies. The Bible covers all of it. The way to get healed is the same way you got saved, by Faith.

Your salvation is based on Scripture, these other Scriptures are for every one of us just as much as the ones that save are for us. People just haven’t been trained in them. The Bible itself tells us that we are to be Trained in and with the Scripture. You know who does that in the Body – Teachers. They are the ones God has Called to do it. I’m teaching you right now, that’s my part. Your part is to stay Teachable. Because the tendency of our flesh is to get offended, which makes us unteachable.

So we saw that there is an element of Faith that is like a tool, but there is more than that. Faith is also a Relationship. God is in the Faith that He gives us, just like He is in His Word. Don’t try to wrap your head around all that, listen in your spirit. That is the only way you will ever get Spiritual Things. Spiritual is not Intellectual, your spirit is above your Intellect. It is in your spirit that “you know all things“, right. That’s what the Bible says.

In your spirit is where you recognize Truth, that’s what that verse means. We read in some ancient Hebrew extrabiblical texts that the Devil took some things that God had showed the Archangels, and tried to use it apart from God and [by doing so] used it against God. Whether we believe that or not, that is exactly how most christians try to use what they call their faith – and it is a Failure. They try to use their faith without God and because it’s for their own purposes, they are using it against Him. Faith is not a cold selfish impersonal intellectual thing like that.

Modern believers use their faith like it’s some sort of control over God. Like they’re going to control Him into doing what they want. As though He is a genie that will grant them 3 wishes. Faith is not control, Faith is trust. You have to trust Him, and trust that He will do what He said. What did He say. If you don’t know you need to go find out or wait until He does say. It all starts with what He said.

We saw that Faith is also a relationship, and that God is in the Faith that He gives us. He comes with it. You cannot just take Faith and go do whatever you want with it. It is only to do what He tells you. You can’t just do it by faith unless He told you to do it. If He did not tell you, you won’t have Faith. You will just be pretending, and it won’t happen. Real Faith brings real results, fake faith brings no results. That’s why so many have no results. Faith doesn’t begin with Miracles, Faith begins with Hearing from God. That’s why you cannot separate Faith from being Led by the Spirit. His Word and His Spirit are the two main ways we Hear from God as Individuals.

Faith is our assignment from God and He will not do it for us. If our faith fails we will not make it to Heaven. Grace is an assignment God has given Himself, and we cannot give ourself grace for Him. Not a single person is in Hell because of a lack of grace. They either lacked the faith to get saved or had their own personal faith in the wrong things. To not do anything to build your faith, then presume you have strong faith is not faith. It is deception and it is a sin.

We all have a life and most of us want to hold onto the life we have. God does not want that, He wants us to trade the life we have for the life He has for us. Doing this trade in the sense of walking it out is called faith. Faith is the only way to get that life, there is no other way. Most who believe in the God of the Bible do not want Him to apply the Bible to their life, they only want Him to help them with the life they already have. He will never do that. If we saw God we would never say that, we wouldn’t even think it.

Only those with faith will see Him. Faith is not having a philosophy and faith is not being religious. It is not either of those things at all. If you don’t already know the something other that faith is as God defines it and as God requires it, then for you what you call faith is one of those two, and it will never work. Faith is not agreement and faith is not another word for your belief system, or any belief system.

You have heard the word used that way and are very familiar with it, because the world uses it that way. But the world and the Bible are completely at odds and always have been. Faith is something spiritual, and like all things spiritual it does manifest in the physical. But the manifestation is not faith, it is the result of faith. True faith. The fake faith spoken of in the Bible doesn’t manifest anything, that’s why so many fall away from it. Faith is a living trust in the God you know. Every word is significant.

Faith begins where the Will of God is known. If you don’t know God’s Will for a thing, you won’t have Faith for that thing. Faith is not mental, it is spiritual – and it’s Powerful. Faith is like a Tool, but it’s also a Relationship. You cannot separate Faith from being Led by the Spirit. They go together. You could pray for [someone else’s] Healing from Scripture alone, but you would be forgetting the relationship part. I’ll give you one example of the many miracles available to anyone, that happen in our Ministry regularly. For years.

As the head of an international ministry, one of my tasks is to send 2 of our Preachers out at a time to Africa to minister at our 7 Churches there, in the Rift Valley of Kenya. Usually twice a year. I could have told them to lay hands on the people and pray for their Healing ahead of time, but I did not. Not until our 2nd trip out this particular year, AFTER I heard in my spirit from the Lord that He wanted us to do it. I had Pastor Anthony who oversees our International Ministries contact them while they were out there and give them my Instructions.

Our men out there did What the Authority told them When they were told – and Bam! Multiple instant miraculous Healings. Huge growths coming out of women’s stomachs disappeared in seconds! Look at God! We do What God tells us When He tells us – and we get results every time. You do what You want when You want, you’ll get nothing, and it will hurt your faith. Every time.

Many people think to themselves if I can’t understand this then I cannot be alright. I have to figure out what’s going on or how I’m gonna come out of this. No you don’t. That’s where faith comes in. You do not have to figure it all out to stay in faith and you do not have to understand to stay in faith. You just have to stay in faith. Trust in God allows us to rest before we know how things are going to turn out. Faith is a rest. In the midst of trials persecution and chaos all around, we can be in perfect peace. Because our trust is not in the troubles, our trust is in God. This trusting in God in the midst of the unknown is Faith.

Don’t despair, it’s not too late, as long as we’re willing to Change. We don’t want you to be impressed with our faith. This should inspire you to build your own faith. God will do these things through anyone who does what He says. So here’s what I want you to know about Faith. Faith is a Power given in Measure by the person of God to the person who follows God to do Only what He says. If you’ll take all that I’ve said about Faith here and apply it, it will start working for you. To bring about God’s Will in the earth and in your life. His Word guarantees it.

Anointing

Just because you can use a keyboard and have access to the internet does not make what you have to say good counsel and advice. Knowing some Scripture on top of that doesn’t mean what you say came from God. No. I said No. Every convict serving a life sentence can do that . . from most prisons.  Throughout the nation.  The Bible says we will give account for every idle word we have spoken, and that the power of life and death is in our words.  You can tell what you are looking at by what is coming out of your mouth.

You must qualify to speak into the lives of others.  Especially if what you’re speaking are the things of God.  You cannot Call yourself to Ministry – only God can.  And the call is not intellectual, it is Spiritual. In both the Biblical and spiritual sense being ordained is done only by God.  No man can ordain you.  Ordination is not something on paper, it is demonstrated in Power.  Men with papers fill the churches, but they have no power.  God did not ordain them.  They called themselves and they ordained themselves.  There is a big difference between God anointed and Self appointed.

The rise of the Internet hasn’t slowed down the millions who have called themselves, it has sped them up and given them a platform. They confuse having something to say with having a Call.  Having something to say does not give anyone authority.  Only God gives authority, which is backed up by the Anointing.  If you do not have the anointing you are not called to Ministry.  Everyone has a call, but relatively few are called to Ministry.  Many are called few are chosen. The chosen are those who will follow the words.

How is it that Jesus was a person who had the anointing all over Him and came to get the anointing to us men, yet most believers don’t know what the anointing is. Anointing is the power of God in very small doses to change you just a little. Just like one breath and just like one bite of food and one thought or one moment in a day. They all come from Him. There is no excuse for not getting it because everything else provided by God in your life is just like that. You either wanted to know or you didn’t want to know. I want to know.

Well breath and food and time all came from God, they did not come from men. God set all of that up, men had nothing to do with it. How they get to and affect us and what they do in us. It’s the same with the anointing. The way of the world is to be or seek the spectacular, which is the opposite of the way of God in the earth. God is subtle. If He were anything other than subtle in dealing with perverted creatures in a fallen world He would scare us to death or we would be destroyed in any larger movements made by Him.

That is why time is given for fallen men, there is no time in Heaven. And patience is given for fallen men to travel through time the way a ship travels across the ocean. Those who refuse to develop patience are not traveling, they are standing still. God does not have anything for people who stand still any more than He has something for any other sinner. Not doing what God tells you in any capacity is sin. He only helps those who do what He says, and the help He gives is for you to do more of what He says. Until finally, we are like Him. Which is how we were to begin with, before everything got perverted.

That is where God is taking us, back to how it was in the beginning. Genesis means the beginning. Anyone who does not want to go back to the way it was in the beginning will go to a spiritual prison in the center of the earth full of fire and darkness, because they are a sinner. Sinners are spiritual criminals, and every man born into this fallen world which is under a curse, is a spiritual criminal. He is a sinner. Man being a sinner because he was born into sin then continues in sin, is not a topic for discussion, it is a condition. If you even attempt to turn it into a discussion you deny the condition, which is itself another sin.

How did the Devil take over the planet for thousands of years. With his words. What was the main mechanism used to impart his nature and displace God’s nature in Adam and Eve. Lucifer got them to exalt his words above the Word of God.  It has been the same since the Garden of Eden.  The enemy wants you to take your faith out of the Word and put it into something you can see or something you can hear. You can choose between doing what God says or what you want, but you cannot do both.  Ministers whom God has anointed and appointed are uniquely qualified to prepare you for eternity.  They do this by teaching you to obey God.

The ones who are called by God have the power.  Power to change themselves, and power to change others.  That’s what the Anointing is . . . Power.  Just a small amount.  But it is not to do whatever you want, it is only to do what He tells you.  One of the things He tells all of His ministers to do is to say what He says.  They say it to you.  It is this hearing and speaking and keeping God’s word that causes you to Grow Up in Christ.  Keeping it by doing it.  So that you too can walk in a level of this power.

You won’t see this power in their muscles, under a microscope, or in the ability to control lightning. You will hear it in their Words. Your words contain more power more authority in your own life than the words of anyone. Including God’s. He made it that way. God created everything with His words. Jesus is called the Word of God.  Line your words up with His words by getting under the words of those who work for Him. What God created with His Words is affected by His Words.  And only He decides . . . who speaks His Words for Him.

Living In Surrender

The largest part of who we are is what we believe.  There are times you were right about what you believed, and there are times you were wrong about what you believed.  So a belief is something you think to be true regardless of whether you are right or wrong.  Now faith is not belief, though they are closely related.  Faith is the step that comes after belief.  You could say that beliefs are inside the man and faith is where what you believe inside can be seen outside the man.  Because faith involves action, or it cannot be faith.  Faith is acting on what you believe without seeing it.  Faith is spiritual and operates only in a realm where you cannot see it.  If you can see it, then it is not faith.

Spiritual warfare fought on this plane is a battle of beliefs.  What makes a belief.  Beliefs are made up of thoughts.  How are thoughts expressed.  Thoughts are expressed through words.  God created the entire universe with His words.  Your fallen nature does not believe that.  It is with the heart man believes, not with the fallen nature.  That means it is in the spirit that all belief occurs.  That is where we believe this and all Spiritual things.  With the heart man believes and with the mouth he speaks that belief, or confesses it.  If we are not willing to say it, it is because we do not believe it.  We must think what God tells us to think and say what He tells us to say.  That is how all that He has for you will come to you.  Believe what His word says in your heart, confess what His word says with your mouth.  There is one other part and that is it will only come to you according to your own Faith, not according to God’s ability. That is why it is so important to build your faith.

Words are spiritual.  They minister either spiritual life or spiritual death.  Jesus said my words are spirit and they are life.  He said that as a man for men.  He did not say that as God.  Scripture tells us that He set aside being equal to God to become a man in order to do what God wanted Him to do.  Becoming the example to all men of what all men should say and what all men should do in regards to the Father.  What you believe and what you do is who you are.  God does not want your feelings or your arguments, He wants who you are.  This is the part of you that must be surrendered.  What you believe enough to say and then do.  People already do this with all sorts of things all their life long, they just have not been trained to do it with God.  Here are some examples of the action of faith from everyday life.

When you go to sit in a chair believing it will hold you up, that is an act of faith.  Further still when you go to look for your car in a parking lot that is large and full of cars, believing that yours will be there, that is an act of faith.  It is a low level of it, but it is faith.  Even more when you go to work at your job everyday for two weeks believing that they will pay you, you are doing that in faith.  People put their faith in all sorts of things because people believe all sorts of things.  This kind of faith cannot save you, in this life or the next.  Most of it is worthless.  Only faith in Christ is saving faith.  All other faith takes you straight to Hell.

None of that is said to be mean, it is the only position the Bible itself takes.  It speaks well of no other faith.  With the only other kind being fake faith, as opposed to true faith.  Truth can set you free, but before it does that it will often make you mad.  People love to say the truth will set you free.  But really, it is only the truth you know that will set you free.  But it only sets you free if you are disciplined by it.  It is being disciplined by the truth you know that sets you free.  The same way the road disciplines your car and tells it where it can and cannot drive across the ground.  God’s Truth must discipline your entire life just like that.  Telling you what you can say and do, and what you cannot say and do.  If we understood how everything that comes out of us as men is a seed, it would change the way we look at things.

Every word is a seed, every thought is a seed, every action is a seed.  God’s law of Seed-Time-Harvest is [The] Kingdom Principle.  When you look at an apple seed the Instructions for an entire apple tree are in that seed.  It is a level of God’s power. You cannot reassign the power, God has already assigned it.  That is why the anointing is on the sowing of the Word, not on our understanding of it.  We speak about the anointing on other pages.  There is no spiritual power in our mental understanding, the seed is what has the power.  It has this power within itself.

Every seed contains the destiny of where it is going.  It also contains the judgment of what it can and cannot do. What the seed is to become is already in the seed. The parameters it can operate within are already in the seed.  God’s Word is what He said, and it is in His Seed.  You could say seed is the ability for something to reproduce itself, and it came from God.  God’s power is in His word and His word is in His seed. That’s why it is so important to know what you sow, because you will reap what you sow.  We are now at the time of all the crops coming in from everything that has been sown.

The Word contains power within itself to bring itself to pass.  Our job is to sow.  Only God makes it grow. Most who call themselves Christians want God to grow it without their sowing it.  It will never happen that way.  God will not do that – He told you to.  He does not violate His own Word.  You cannot leave for Him to do what He has left for you to do.  Salvation is not an event, it is a condition.  Which means that it is ongoing.  You are saved in your spirit, you are being saved in your soul, and you will be saved in your body on the Great Day when the Lord returns.  But only if you’ve been sowing what He told you to sow. Stay in the condition of salvation, so that when it’s time to die, you won’t.

There are no dead people in Heaven!  Dead people don’t go to Heaven, they go to Hell.  Death is a spiritual condition not a physical event.  You must be clear about this.  Yes the world and its way of speaking has reduced it to that, as they do with all of God’s things.  That’s what they do, they reduce Him.  Because they do not want to deal with Him.  They cannot get rid of Him, so they make Him as small as they possibly can.  Do not line up with them.  We are forbidden to conform to the world and its way of thinking.  We are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.  Which involves making His words our words.

We put out the Spiritual Principles and Biblical Truths (or some facet of them) on Facebook, every single day.  If you have followed us for any time then you know that.  God uses these laws to run the entire universe.  Two of the master Laws that run everything are stated in Romans 8 – the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ / and the Law of Sin and Death.  Everything living or dead is under one, nothing is under both.  Accept His will by believing His words and your sentence is life.  Eternal life.

The life is Life in Christ, not life the way man means it.  It is the kind of Life that you can only have if you are in Christ.  It is not available to anyone outside of Christ.  When you accept Christ as your Savior you come into this Life.  But that is just the start.  Until any human being is Born Again, they are in spiritual death.  That’s what Hell is filled with, spiritual death.  God’s Word is His Will.  One person’s dislike of the Will of God or the Word of God does not stop them from coming to pass in the Earth.  It only stops them from coming to pass in their own life.  God without man is still God.  Man without God . . . is nothing.
