Summary: Christians today have lost their faith in the ability of God and in the Man of God
I. We as the body of Christ need to realize that we have power and Authority and need to Use it.
1. “These signs shall follow them”
2. Hebrews 1:1 - “Now Faith is the Substance of Things Hoped for, The
Evidence of Things Not Seen”
a. Belief or Faith opens our eyes to that which God sees
2 Kings 6:12-18 - “And one of his servants said, None, my lord, O king: but Elisha, the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the king of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bedchamber. And he said, Go and spy where he is, that I may send and fetch him. And it was told him, saying, Behold, he is in Dothan. Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about.
And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth, behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him, Alas, my master! how shall we do? And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them. And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said, Smite this people, I pray thee, with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.”
b. When our eyes are opened to what God sees, NOTHING will be impossible
II. We still today need to look to the man of God to help open our eyes to Gods plan
Acts 5:14-16 - “And belivers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might over-shadow some of them”
1. Our Problem today is that the world and the church no longer has faith in the man of God or in God himself
a. God sees his annointed as a Ground for his power to flow thru to the entire world
b. From the Man of God, to the Children of God, To the four
Corners of the World.
2. Acts 10:44 “While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them
which heard the word”
a. They had so much faith in the word and in Gods man that while he was still
Speaking the Holy Ghost Fell on them and they received.
