Just Announced: Philippians Sermon Series

Summary: This sermon series helps the believer position themselves in place where God can manifest Himself


T.T. Hebrews 12

The first ingredient for believing God

1. Matt 17:20…..if you can understand faith functioning as a seed,

2. AND - If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, … and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

3. We talked about hooking your mouth up to the seed of the Word of God that’s in your heart

The second ingredient for believing God

You can believe God with your heart and doubt in your head!

The third ingredient for believing God

Matthew 13:21 (KJV)

21 The person who has not allowed the word to///// root in himself, but endures for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, …. he is offended.

1. It is possible to revive the word with joy

2. be close to a miracle

3. close to allowing God making big changes in our lives

4. then be offended

5. Allowing the devil to steal the word of God that has been planted


The Greatest test of faith is when you don’t understand


Hebrews 12:1-2 (NASB)

1 Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

QUESTION: Is He….the author and perfecter of our faith


Today I want to talk about

1. The importance of NOT wavering!!

2. The importance of fixing our eyes on Jesus

3. Understanding the devil wants you to waver!!

4. the devil wants us to take our eyes OFF Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith


T.T. Hebrews 10

When studying - the ingredients for believing God

We have to talk about faith!

Because believing God …(pause)…is having faith in Him!!

What is faith?

The bible says……Hebrews 11:1 (NASB)

1 Now faith is the assurance (Bro. Hagin “the title deed”) of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

What is faith?

Vine’s Expository Dictionary says……

"firm persuasion," a conviction based upon hearing —

What is faith?

1) A strong conviction – A firm persuasion – An assurance

That what God said he will do ----HE WILL DO!!

2) Believing Him

3) Trusting Him


 Faith is valuable

The enemy is out to steal the seed of the word of God

He wants you to cast your confidence away

But the scripture says..

Hebrews 10:35-38 (KJV)

35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.

38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.


T.T. James 1

The DEVIL wants us – “not sure” – wondering – and questioning God

….SLOW …But if we

1. Cast not away therefore your confidence

2. stand and except the Lords Word

3. God’s Word cannot fail

Jeremiah 1:12 (NASB)

I am watching over My word to perform it."

Mark 13:31 (KJV)

31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.

Psalms 119:89-90 (NKJV)

89 Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven.

90 Your faithfulness endures to all generations; You established the earth, and it abides.


There is nothing the Devil can do ---- to stop the God’s Word from working

 So what does he do?

 He tries to force the believer into….

1. questioning God

2. stop believing

3. and wondering –

 He tries to force the believer into wavering on his beliefs!!

Now – look at NOT WAVERING as an ingredient for believing God! ---

James 1:5

5 But if any of you lacks wisdom (healing, finances, good things in their life),

WHAT DOES IT SAY? ….let him ask of God Q: IS GOD A GIVER?

who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

without reproach

1. He won’t sneer at you for being dumb or ignorant

2. KJV and upbraideth not

3. He won’t criticizes

4. He won’t say you’re dumb as a post


If people are serious ……there are NO DUMB questions or request!!

 It says…and without reproach, and it will be given to him.


………..ask and it will be give to you


James 1:6….6 But he must ask (what) in faith (how do we ask?) without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind.
