THE INGREDIENTS FOR BELIEVING GOD PT 2

You can have faith in your heart with doubt in your mind!

Matt 17:20 (NIV)

20 …. if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say (KJV - you shall say) to this mountain, ’Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you."

• Look at your neighbor and say

Nothing will be impossible to you. ----- (if you say)

T.T. Hebrews 11:6

Q: Is Jesus lying or is He telling the truth?

He said,

……………..if you can understand faith functioning as a seed,

• nothing shall be impossible to you.

Notice He said, ……If you have faith.

………If you have faith as a seed.

Today I’m talking about THE INGREDIENTS FOR BELIEVING GOD

If you have that kind of faith,……….. you will say.

This kind of faith or “BELIEVING GOD” begins to talk.

1. If you have faith, you’ll say.

2. You’ll give commands.

A very important scripture…

Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)

6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Impossible …..”That’s a very strong word”

……….. Impossible means ---- It can’t be done….

YOU SAY

Q: what can’t be done….

A: You can’t please God without believing Him!

You can’t please God without believing (#1) that he exists and (#2) that he rewards those who earnestly seek him

STOP – Listen closely!!

 Our entire walk with God in the Christian faith

 …IS A RELATIONSHIP THAT EVOLVES AROUND

1. BELIEVING HIM

2. TRUSTING HIM

3. HAVING FAITH IN HIM

4. HAVING A CONFIDENCE…(#1) that he exists and (#2) that he rewards those who earnestly seek him

In connection to the subject of – the ingredients for believing God

…Listen to this scripture…the bible says

(In reference to those who doesn’t believe in Him)

Isaiah 45:15 (NASB)

15 You are a God who hides Himself

The

1) Scoffers

2) Naysayer

3) critics

4) Skeptics

5) Infidels

6) Atheists

• They want to know!… where is your God!!

• Where is HE

Question?:

Can you take them somewhere and say ………here is?

……….look at Him

• NO

• Why

Because God has chosen not to do so!!

If God chose to do so……. He could eliminate the earth of the

• Scoffers

• Naysayer

• Skeptics

• Atheists

• In a moment of time!!!

• He could shake this place

Read carefully!

1) He could reveal himself

2) …….that so everyone who saw him

3) would know HE IS GOD

 In a split second he could reveal himself

 And no one would be wondering if HE IS GOD

So my question is:---- Why doesn’t HE openly show Himself?

Why doesn’t He allow the skeptics and critics,

to just simply see him?

The answer is: He has chosen not to do so!!!

Think with me

When you are seeing Him it no longer takes faith

God wants us to have faith!!.. A blind assurance

A blind assurance that produces substance

Because Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)

1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

So we walk with Him …by faith

A blind assurance that produces substance

Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)

6 And without faith it is impossible to please God,

F a i t h i s t h e f u n d a m e n t a l n a t u r e - o f p l e a s i n g G o d

 Our entire walk with God….

…IS A RELATIONSHIP THAT EVOLVES AROUND

T.T. Mark 9

Without faith it is impossible

1) Prayer

2) Sermon

3) Give

We want to be pleasing to God!

Mark 9:14-18 (NIV)

14 When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them.

15 As soon as all the people saw Jesus, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet him.

16 "What are you arguing with them about?" he asked.

17 A man in the crowd answered, "Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech.

18 Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not."

1) Listen: there are some pillars of truth here

2) This man took his child to the disciples to be set free
