FAITH: WHAT IS IT ? (March 10, 2019)

                                           

Heb. 11:1 – 2

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good report.

It takes faith to obtain good report in every field of life.

Good reports at work

Good reports at home

Good reports in every aspect of your life.

Faith in God will produce good report.

God has designed this force of faith to stop every evil report around our lives and turn them to good reports.

The quality of your faith is what determines the overall quality of your Christian life.

Faith is the very substance of the Christian experience.

Faith is the very foundation of our salvation.

Ephesian 2:8

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Faith is our access into salvation.

The grace of God makes it available but faith makes it accessible.

John 3:16

God so loved the world, He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Whosoever believeth:

You have to believe to be saved

God has everything available to make you strong and healthy,

You need faith to access what He has

Everything that is available to us in redemption is only accessible by faith.

1 John 5:4

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.

Habakkuk 2:4, “the just shall live by his faith“

Ro 1:17 “the just shall live by faith”

Ga 3:11 “the just shall live by faith.”

Heb 10:38 “the just shall live by faith.”

Nothing in the kingdom of God works without Faith!

Salvation is impossible without faith!

Healing is impossible without faith!

Victory is impossible without faith!

Faith is the principal determining factor of every man’s status.

The question then is, what is faith?

Trusting and depending that the word will accomplish what the word says.

What many of us Christians today assume to be faith is pure mental assent.

Which agrees that the Bible is true, that it is God’s word, and yet when the crisis comes it does not work.

Mental assent simply recognizes the truth­fulness of the Word, but does not and cannot act upon it.

True bible Faith is built on the revelation of the Word.

So, what is True bible Faith?

True Bible Faith is a practical expression of confidence in God and His Word.

Hebrews 10:35 – 39

Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.

“Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward.”

It is a practical expression of confidence in God!

This is a display of confidence in God and His Word!

Daniel 3:17

“Our God whom we serve is able to deliver us, and He will deliver us.”

That is confidence!

Faith is not just stupid behavior; it believes in reward or answer.

Faith has great recompense of reward.

Hebrews 11:6,

“…he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

Faith has its eyes on the reward – great reward!

Let me show you something concerning the sacrifice of Abraham

The Lord spoke to Abraham, concerning Isaac,

“Bring me your son and sacrifice him to me on the mountain.”

Now Abraham obeyed but with much more in mind.

Heb 11:18 – 19

“Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:  Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.”

Abraham knew that God has already given His word concerning Isaac’s future.

So He has seen beyond the sacrifice, knowing that God can be trusted to fulfill His word.

By the sight of faith Abraham knew that Isaac exists beyond the sacrifice

Faith see the answer in reality.

In faith the answer already exists.

Abraham believed God, and demonstrated it by that act of faith.

True Faith is an act motivated by the word

If you can’t see the evidence, then what you are referring to is not faith.

If you can’t see the answer, then what you are referring to is not faith.

It’s time to see the answer.

Every shame around your life will be turned to a testimony before this year is over.

VICTORY IS YOURS

Jesus is Lord
