FAITH EXPOSITIONS



No matter what is happening in your life. No matter how much you blame yourself, no matter how obvious it is that you are truly at fault. There is a force that can bring you out of the mess victoriously. Fate is the consequence of what a man has done. But Faith is the supernatural turnaround against the looming and experiencing consequences in a man’s life.

For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

Do you know, you can live beyond that seemingly impossible fate or circumstances? With faith, nothing is impossible. This faith is the provision that God had made available in Christ Jesus unto all the humans he has created. And there is nothing above the reach of this faith. It is a faith that has turned a barren woman into a mother, a sick man into a healthy man, a depressed soul into an happy spirit, a sorrowful heart into a glad heart, a hurtful and hateful soul into a loving soul, a dead man into a living man, a dead business into a living business, a poverty stricken life into a wealth flow system, it has and can touch anything and everything.

God had already made provision for us all. This faith cannot fail. It is not based anymore on what you have done, but on what he has done. This faith is in Christ Jesus who has died and suffered for all our shortcomings, so we wouldn’t have to bear the consequences of our actions any longer. He has suffered our defeat and given us victory over all life’s challenges.
By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went (Hebrews 11:8).

The Bible described Abraham as the father of faith. The Lord spoke to him to travel to an unknown destination that would become his home, and without further instructions, Abraham stepped out in faith. He didn’t question the Lord; he simply acted on the instruction.

Hebrews 11:9 says, “By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise.” In other words, as he journeyed, wherever he pitched his tent or lived with his family at any given time, he lived unto God by faith, on the basis of what God had told him.

On another occasion, the Lord said to him “…for a father of many nations have I made thee” (Genesis 17:5). Abraham believed the Word of the Lord, even though he was still childless and all he had were his servants. Nevertheless, by the spirit of faith, he apprehended what the Lord had said, made confessions accordingly, and walked in the reality of it.

Galatians 3:7 tells us they that are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham; which means we’re to follow his example. Therefore, ours is a life of faith; faith is the currency by which we operate in the Kingdom. We’re creatures of faith, from a lineage of faith. The Bible says, “For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7). Hebrews 11:1 NLT says, “What is faith? It is the confident assurance that what we hope for is going to happen. It is the evidence of things we cannot yet see.”

Faith is living according to God’s principles, trusting that He’s whom He says He is, that He’s done what He says He’s done, and that He’s given you what He says He’s given you. Faith is anchoring your life on God’s Word, refusing to be swayed to the left or to the right; it’s the title-deed to unseen realities. Blessed be God!
Romans 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think [of himself] more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

Hebrews 11:1-2 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good report.

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds. — 2 Corinthians 10:4

Every one Christian is in the middle of a raging spiritual war. We as believers must recognize that our enemy is very real, but through Christ, we have the power to fight effectively.

Scripture reveals that Satan and a whole empire of evil spirits oppose God and His kingdom. However, the enemies are fallen angels who have already been defeated on our behalf by the Lord. While it is important not to underestimate their capabilities, we mustn't be deceived into thinking their power is greater than it is. They are simply no match for God. When Jesus rebuked demonic forces who tormented people, they were forced to obey. And after He had triumphed over them through His resurrection, the Lord Jesus gave us authority over these spirits. 1 John 4:4 says that, through the Holy Spirit, we have already overcome the enemy because "greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world."

However, if we fail to take up our position of power in Christ, we will feel overwhelmed and defeated. Though Satan cannot touch our souls, he will try to disable us. His plan is to make us ineffective in our spiritual battle with him. One of his most common weapons is guilt. He knows that when our conscience condemn us, we lose confidence with God and therefore are unable to exercise our spiritual authority over his kingdom. That is the reason why he never ceases to tempt us to sin. And when we give in to temptation, he comes and to say to us, "You have sinned against God. You are a weak and unworthy sinner who will never be able to really serve God. Are you really sure you are saved?" If we believe such accusations, we run the risk of doubting our true identity in Christ, and, as a result, become a prey for his demonic host.

But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. Psalm 1:2
All you have to do is make a decision to give yourself to it. To focus your time and attention on it. The more you give yourself to it, the more your desire for it will grow. Eventually, it will consume your thinking.
Surprised? You shouldn't be. That happens with anything you totally give yourself to. It happens, for example, with people who give themselves to pornography. As they focus their attention on it, the spirit behind it moves in on their consciousness and eventually draws them from mental activity into physical activity. Finally, they come to a place where they can't be satisfied. They can't get enough.
That same principle works on the positive side when you begin to give yourself to God's Word. You can give yourself to it to the point where it totally consumes your mental and physical life. The more of it you get, the more you want. The Spirit behind the Word, the Holy Spirit, will draw you and lead you closer to Jesus than you ever imagined possible.
I've never yet met anybody walking in faith and power who at sometime hadn't developed that kind of addiction by giving themselves totally to the Word for an extended time. I don't mean just a few minutes here and there either. I'm talking about some serious time.

Psalm 1:1-6
1Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night.
3 He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.
4The ungodly are not so, But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Then Peter opened his mouth and said: "In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality." Acts 10:34

God is no respecter of persons. He will come through on your behalf no matter who you are, your race or nationality. When you know who you are in Christ Jesus, then there is no one who can stop you from succeeding in life. Putting your trust and faith in God will always cause you to rise above the circumstances of life and be on top.
God will deliver you like the three Hebrew boys in Daniel chapter three. The word 'deliver' in this context means to leave free.In Daniel chapter three we see three Hebrew boys by the name of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. They had become high government officials - Jews in Babylon. Hence, they were the wrong people, the wrong race even in the wrong country. But that doesn't matter to God, it didn't matter to them and it shouldn't matter to you either when men try to keep you down.
You can still be on top, because nobody can keep you down when you trust God. God didn't create you to fail. He created you to win. Because your faith is in Him, no one can bring you down. All you need is faith in God, because you and God are a majority.Those who are opposed to righteousness always have a scheme. But the Lord will bring all their schemes to nothing. Because you are a child of God, and you have put your trust in Him, He will surely bring you to your high places. You will succeed and become prosperous in Jesus' name!

John 17:17  Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.

A lot of Christians have become professionals in asking God for the forgiveness of their sins. They are so religious and dogmatic. They plead for mercy in the morning, afternoon and night. They quote Psalms of repentance and chant religious canticles  everyday. Some have come to a point where they play games with sin and they say "I can always ask for forgiveness".

Such Christians are either outrightly mischievous or deeply ignorant. As a new creation in Christ, you have been forgiven the sins of yesterday, today and tomorrow. The redeeming blood of Christ is effectual to cleanse once and for all. The full load of your sins was placed on Christ on the cross and the price for sin whether past, present or future has been paid. Sin has been conquered. Believers no longer have a sin problem.

The problem believers have is a knowledge problem. A believer can only continue in sin because of a knowledge vacuum. The antidote to this sin now is not the prayer for mercy or more grace. The antidote to it is revelation to the truth of God's Word. Jesus therefore prayed the father " sanctify them by thy truth, thy word is truth". So, what will sanctify you now as a believer is the truth of God's word. When you discover your status in the word, you will not continue in sinfulness. When you discover the effects of those little foxes in your life, you will get rid of them. The word of God is a mirror, it will show you your real self and if you're honest enough to acknowledge it, the word will change you.

Stop the hypocrisy, stop the constant babbling in God's ears to forgive your sins. He has done that already. Allow the Word of God to permeate your spirit, soul and body. Let the word take over your life and experience its sanctifying power. Let the word prick your conscience and set you free.
