Love my country, my family, my friends, and above all the Lord Jesus. I was raised in the Northest, and have also lived in California; Florida; and Texas; as an evangelist and pastor. I have traveled a lot, and have made a lot of friends, and been of some help to a few people, for which I am grateful.

Imagine That

I found a quote that should be on everyone's refrigerator.

"Faith is not believing God can; it's knowing God will" Ben Stein

I would venture to say most of the church is hesitant to move out of their comfort zone. To move out where only God can come to their rescue. Like laying on of hands for a healing. To speak out in prophesy. To share the fullness of the Holy Spirit, with signs, and wonders following.

What a sad state of affairs. There are vast numbers of christians who have never witnessed a miracle. Not the babes, but people who have been in the Lord for years and years. Even the ones who believe in the full gospel of healing, deliverance, and the gifts of the Spirit.

The TV programs that come from huge ministeries are watered down. And if you can find one that lets God be God, please let me know! Is the Lord not moving, or not healing, or not setting people free? Of course He is, but it's not in the public view.

Here is a racial faith. You be the one to bring in the miracles. You heal the sick, and deliverance to the captives. You start your own ministry of the impossible. Our Lord loves to do the impossible, then He get's the glory, and not the wisdom of man. It will require you to look the fool for Christ. To step out with nothing to hold you up but the Word of the Lord. This is faith: "knowing that God will". It's not a wish and a hope. It's a settled fact in your spirit. Pray till it is, and stay in the fight till you win.

Doesn't it say that we "always are triumphant in Christ". Do you believe it; do you know it! Then do it. It's nice that we have ministers to encourage us, to teach us, and to impart their gifts into our lives. But how about growing up and feeding ourselves. How about praying until you get ahold of God. Till you know the voice of the Spirit. Get the goods yourself and pass them out to all who will receive.

Isn't it Christ living in you hoping to reveal His glory through you to the whole world? Yes. Aren't you blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places. Then get into the spirit and bring, drag, pull, wrestle, and stir, the heavens with your prayers until you can be that mature christian who lacks nothing. And is ready to whip, destroy, pull down, and overcome all the devil has to throw at people.

It's Jesus who said to ask. It's the Lord who said to seek. It's the King of Glory who told you to knock. Obey Him you Man of War. "Those that know God shall be strong and DO exploits. "Faith is knowing the Lord will DO all that He said". "You may ask me for anything, and I will do it, that the Father be Glorified in the Son".

Faith is not Enough

First we have been confessing the word of God. Forming a renewed mind that thinks in line with the Word. We have used our mind to cast down falsehood. We have understanding into the ways of God. And yet we have not gotten a full victory in every area of our lives. What's up with that?

Faith is not enough!!

Faith has to have accompaning Works. Faith is the action taken on the word. The action on the word is the proof of faith. And by it the manifestation. With-out the manifestation the word is not complete. Or to put it another way. Is dead!

You can love Jesus, go to church, pay tithes, and sing like a bird. That's all good but, to grow in faith you need the word to manifest in your life. I know of whole church's who do all these things, and don't know the moving of the Spirit from a pep rally at a football game! To them it looks the same.

We must become familiar with the Spirit. To do this you must pray in the spirit. Yes, to pray in "other tongues". Sound like foolishness, or like a emotional frenzy? Well, it's not a pep rally. It's a God given, God blessed, God energized, God moving, God revealing, God ordained gift from the Almighty, to all believers, everywhere, for all time, in all nations, in all ages, till Jesus comes.

If this makes you think that it's just a passing fad, an emotional error, or "these who know nothing of the law" and are being mislead. Then you are spiritually blind. Just who is man to tell God how to do things. God's ways are too wonderful for man. But the children, the babes, they will know God and his leading. In God not the greatest receive grace, but the humble, the least, the lowly, and the outcast. These will gladly obey God and be greatly used and blessed.

By praying in the spirit, they will understand the moving of God and do exploits. They will receive revelation about the times and seasons. The gifts of God will be open to them. The work and the word of God will prosper in their life. The blessing of the Lord will be upon them and all men shall see the goodness of God over their comings and going.

Be one of them! You are chosen in Christ. You are filled with his Spirit. You are the "royal prieshood". You are His body, His beloved, His chosen. Be what you are! All things are your's, and all Christ is, He is in you. You come behind in nothing. Be the vessel that God said you are, and show forth the Glory of God in your life!
