~Hebrews 11:1 (NKJ) “Now Faith Is The Substance Of Things Hoped For, The Evidence Of Things Not Seen.”
~Faith Is The Substance Of Things, But Hope Is A Necessity. ~Hebrews 11:6, “But Without Faith It Is Impossible To Please Him.” ~Hope Is The Goal-Setter. ~2 Peter 1:2-3 (NKJ) “Grace And Peace Be Multiplied To You In The Knowledge Of God And Of Jesus Our Lord, 3 As His Divine Power Has Given To Us All Things That Pertain To Life And Godliness, Through The Knowledge Of Him Who Called Us By Glory And Virtue.” ~Hope Is Necessary... Hope Is A Partner To Faith. ~When The Sick Come Into A Prayer Line, They Have A Hope To Be Healed.
~Look At What Abraham Did When There Was No Hope. ~Romans 4:17-18 (NLT) “That Is What The Scriptures Mean When God Told Him, “I Have Made You The Father Of Many Nations.” This Happened Because Abraham Believed In The God Who Brings The Dead Back To Life And Who Creates New Things Out Of Nothing. 18 Even When There Was No Reason For Hope, Abraham Kept Hoping... Believing That He Would Become The Father Of Many Nations. For God Had Said To Him, “That’s How Many Descendants You Will Have!”
~When There Was No Hope, Abraham Decided To Believe In Hope. ~He Made A Decision To Believe God's Word.
~Don't Try To Use Faith Where Hope Should Be, And Don't Try To Use Hope Where Faith Should Be.
~Hope Has No Substance. ~Faith Is The Substance Of The Thing Hoped For. ~Revelation Comes By The Spirit
~1 Corinthians 2:9-10 (KJV) “But As It Is Written, Eye Hath Not Seen, Nor Ear Heard, Neither Have Entered Into The Heart Of Man, The Things Which God Hath Prepared For Them That Love Him. But God Hath Revealed Them Unto Us By His Spirit: For The Spirit Searcheth All Things, Yea, The Deep Things Of God.” ~Proverbs 20:27 (KJV) ~1 Corinthians 2:12 (KJV) “Now We Have Received, Not The Spirit Of The World, But The Spirit Which Is Of God; That We Might Know The Things That Are Freely Given To Us Of God.”
~As You Read The Bible... That Logos Word Gets Stored Up Inside. But The Logos Is Only A Seed. Your Spirit And Your Imagination Must Then Start Building Around That Seed. That’s How Hope Is Built! ~That’s Where The Confidence To Step Out, Act Upon It, And Start Decreeing It Will Come From. ~You Will Then Become A Doer Of The Word And Not Only A Hearer.
~Lots Of Christians Have Information From The Word, But God Wants The Seeds To Be Illuminated And To Become Revelation. ~Once The Word Becomes Revelation… It Becomes Rhema Word… ~It Becomes Substance For A Person To Step Out In Confidence.
~Our Spiritual Eyes And Imagination Play A Big Part When It Comes To The Miraculous.
~If You Want To Hope For Great Miracles, You Need To Allow The Holy Spirit To Create New Images In Your Mind And Create Them On The Foundation Of His Word.
~For Example, In Isaiah 53:5, It Says (NKJ) “…By His Stripes We Are Healed.” ~Hebrews 11:1 (NKJ) “Now Faith Is The Substance Of Things Hoped For, The Evidence Of Things Not Seen.”
~Based On This Verse, I Believe Your Imagination Comes From Hope, And The More It Is Used The More Your Faith Is Increased. ~But Remember, Hope Is A Goal-Setter.
~It Is Unnatural For A True Christian To Not Have An Appetite For The Impossible. ~Is That Normal? Absolutely!
~But Is It Common In Today’s Church? No! Not Yet. ~But I Believe God Is Changing The Way Christians Think About The So-Called Impossible. ~As You Can Imagine, It’s A Revolutionary Approach To Christian Living… A Return To The Authentic Book Of Acts Church. ~The Normal Christian Life Means… Miracles, Spiritual Intervention, And Revelation. ~Written Into The Spiritual DNA Of Every Believer Is An Appetite For The Impossible That Cannot Be Ignored Or Wished Away. ~It Is Built In Us! ~Because The Holy Spirit, (The Very Spirit That Raised Jesus From The Dead) Lives In Us…
~Listen... These Are The Last Days! ~To Be Effective Believers, We Must Go Well Beyond The Christian Life We Have Known. ~We Must Redefine “Normal Christianity” So It Lines Up With God’s Idea Of Normal… ~The True Christian Life Begins With The Realization That We Were Put Here To Do The Will Of God On Earth As It Is In Heaven. ~I Believe That The Will Of God Is Simpler And Plainer And More Supernatural Than We Have Thought. ~In What Is Known As The Lord’s Prayer, Jesus Said Clearly And Concisely:
~Matthew 6:9–10 (KJV) “Our Father Which Art In Heaven, Hallowed Be Thy Name. 10 Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done (On) Earth, As It Is In Heaven.”
~The Will Of God Is Simply This: “On Earth As It Is In Heaven.” ~When We Make This Our Mission…
~People Are Set Free… ~Bodies Are Healed… ~Darkness Lifts From People’s Minds…
~Romans 12:2 (NIV) “And Do Not Be Conformed To This World, But Be Transformed By The Renewing Of Your Mind, That You May Prove What Is That Good And Acceptable And Perfect Will Of God.”
