Just Announced: Philippians Sermon Series

Summary: sermon talks about defferent aspects of faith

Hebrew 11 .1 Now Faith

1Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Grace is God’s ability

Faith is man’s responsibility

Faith receives what God provides

Faith is the medium of exchange in the Kingdom of God

Faith is bridge between you and God ….

We are justified by faith Rom.5.1 1Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we[a]have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we[b] rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.

Sanctified by faith Ephesians 3.17 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,

Our prayers are answered by faith Mark 11.2424Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

We overcome the world by faith 1John.5.44for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.

Unbelief is a terrible sin

The lack of faith is not weakness it is wickedness 1John.5.10 10Anyone who believes in the Son of God has this testimony in his heart. Anyone who does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because he has not believed the testimony God has given about his Son.

Faith= Forsaking All I Trust Him


Our Faith must be in God

John 14.1 Jesus said Let not your heart be troubled you believe in God , believe also in me

Mark 11.22 Have faith in god

Faith in faith is nothing , faith in prayer is not enough , faith in leaders or church is not that god want .

Even the smallest of faith in God is better than no faith at all…

Mark 9.23-24 23" ’If you can’?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes."

24Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!

Lord I believe , help thou my unbelief…

“Even a trembling hand can receive a wonderful gift’’ Spurgeon

It is not the quality of our faith it is the object of our faith is important .

Hebrew 12.2


Romans 10.17 Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God

If you expect your prayers being answered you should pray in the will of God.

To know the will of God you should hear the Word .

Word = Rhema = Specific revelation Logos = General revelation

Written word

Spoken word

Living Word

To build up faith fill your life with Logos .If you know the Logos , you can hear the Rhema

John15.7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you.

If you continue to abide in my word ….

Rhema is a specific word to a specific person in a period of time .

Why don’t the promise always work ??

You can’t automatically claim a promise that’s been given to everyone in the Bible .

Mathew 14.22-33

v.29 Jesus called Peter COME . It is Rhema to Peter

When we trust Him God will speak to our situations ..

It calmed Peter . It could have calmed the sea , but it calmed Peter. It was a specific word to Peter.

3Things Peter did .

He received a word for the Lord

He walked on the word

Walk by faith .

How you Receive a Rhema from God ???

Don’t just go to Bible and pick up out a promise at random.

Listen to God to speak.

The Rhema will come in variety of ways

1.Begin by confessing any known sin.

2.Declare your desire for desire for God’s will.

3.Ask God to lead your desires.

4.Lay your desires over Scripture, does it contradict it ??


Faith is belief with legs on it.

“We are saved not by faith and works. We are saved by faith that works’’ Martin Luther

James 2.17 Faith without works is dead...

Faith is gift of God. That doesn’t mean that automatically it comes.

Breathing is gift too, I can stop it if I want to.


20But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. 21Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.

22Be merciful to those who doubt; 23snatch others from the fire and save them; to others show mercy, mixed with fear ”hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.
