Summary: In the same way that Radio waves and Telephone waves are running through the air and in order to receive them we must have a transmitter so it is in the Spiritual realm with the spoken word of faith.
Faith and Hope True Glory revealed.
In Exodus, Deuteronomy and Psalms when God was delivering a message the Children of Israel had to receive it and then repeat it and in doing this they established the word or sealed the word.
By speaking it out it cannot be broken but is forever in the Spiritual realm.
In the same way that Radio waves and Telephone waves are running through the air and in order to receive them we must have a transmitter so it is in the Spiritual realm with the spoken word of faith.
By saying God is good and you repeating He is good indeed we are establishing something which cannot be broken.
Hope is the transmitter by which we pick up the word of faith!
Faith makes us sure of what we hope for and gives us proof of what we cannot see. 2 It was their faith that made our ancestors pleasing to God.
3 Because of our faith, we know that the world was made at God’s command. We also know that what can be seen was made out of what cannot be seen.
4 Because Abel had faith, he offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did. God was pleased with him and his gift, and even though Abel is now dead, his faith still speaks for him.
5 Enoch had faith and did not die. He pleased God, and God took him up to heaven. That’s why his body was never found. 6 But without faith no one can please God. We must believe that God is real and that he rewards everyone who searches for him.
There is something wrong with faith that does not work. Unbelief breaks our hope.
Hope is standing in the reality of everything that really exists although unseen.
Faith is one of the names for the matter we cannot see.
Look at Photo in newsletter. The visible Shekina glory of God.
We need to move away from feelings and seeing things, for things are not always as they seem.
Gods word and what He says is how we should view our world.
For instance God says
I will supply all your needs according to His riches in Glory! Philippians
He gives his angels charge over you to minister to the heirs of salvation Hebrews & Psalms
By His stripes we were healed Isaiah 53
We don’t always know what to pray but the Holy spirit prays through us with groaning that cannot be uttered. Romans 8
Nothing can separate us from the love of God Romans
A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet upon Shigionoth. 2 O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, in the midst of the years make known; in wrath remember mercy.
3 God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise.
Teman means no where! ( In the beginning There was no where for God to come from He hadnt created it yet)
Note: Selah! ( Stop and carefully consider)
Faith is the structure or the framework of the invisible world.
Consider an aircraft ~ can’t see the structure but by experience we know that it can fly
Consider a sky scraper can’t see foundations but by experience we know it won’t fall over.
The same way the structure of the Spiritual world can be seen in the Word and hope brings the invisible into the visible.
The feasts of Israel
Represent the three main realms of the supernatural
Passover symbolises faith ~ to pass over from the natural to the Faith realm
Pentecost symbolises the anointing ~ the anointing is the support structure of the unseen realm
Tabernacles symbolises the glory ~ Glory is the visible or tangible presence of God (Shekina)
The bible says “Jesus is the Author and finisher of our faith”
You cannot divorce faith from grace
It is not how much faith you have but accepting what he has already done
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
So when Peter said “Lord I believe help thou mine unbelief” He was acknowledging that it was God who grants faith.
It was God who granted you the faith to accept the salvation you have.
It is God who grants you faith to receive all he has for you.
What stops us?
Us striving! Cain strived and toiled to produce an offering which was rejected
Able gave an offering by faith,
Lets be real there have been times when God has come through for us and we weren’t even walking right. We can’t claim it is our faith that brings results but Gods free gift!
