+A Deeper and more Accurate understanding of FAITH with practical application and demonstration and all in accordance with the Word of God.
+The Omnipotent (All-Powerful, Unlimited and Inexhaustible) Power of God is in us by the Holy Spirit.
James 2:17, 20

Matthew 17:20
Jesus said unto them,
…for verily I say unto you, If you have FAITH AS A GRAIN OF MUSTARD SEED, you shall say unto this MOUNTAIN, remove from here to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
+Please Notice that Jesus DID NOT SAY IF YOU HAVE FAITH THE SIZE OF A MOUNTAIN you shall say to this MUSTARD SEED remove from here…
+Sometimes we think it’s the SIZE of FAITH that moves mountains, but it is not so.
+If FAITH the size of a mustard seed can move mountains, can you imagine having FAITH the size of a MOUNTAIN.
+Faith the size of a mustard seed or Faith the size of a mountain, either way you have FAITH ENOUGH to move any mountain that is a hindrance to your life.
+YOU HAVE MOUNTAIN MOVING FAITH. USE IT AND TAKE YOUR VICTORY IN JESUS NAME. AMEN!


Matthew 17:20
Jesus said unto them,
…for verily I say unto you, If you have FAITH as a grain of mustard seed, YOU SHALL SAY unto this mountain, remove from here to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
+Notice, in regards to FATH Jesus said, “YOU SHALL SAY”.
+Speaking is a Principle in the operation of FAITH.
+FAITH must be spoken.
Mark 11:22-23
22 And Jesus answering said unto them, HAVE FAITH IN GOD.
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall SAY unto this mountain, Be removed, and be cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he SAID shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he SAID.
+Hold STRONG to the things you SAY in FAITH and know that they will come to past in Jesus Name. Amen!


…continuing on the Principle, “Faith must be spoken”.
Mark 11:23 Jesus said:
23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall SAY unto this mountain, Be removed, and be cast into the sea; and SHALL NOT DOUBT in his heart, BUT SHALL BELIEVE that those things which he SAID shall come to pass; HE SHALL HAVE WHATSOEVER HE SAID.
Psalm 116:10
I BELIEVED, therefore have I spoken…
+If you believe in you heart and speak what you believe, you will have what you say.
+Believe what the Word of God says, and speak what the Word of God says, and you will have what the Word of God says. Amen!


Romans 4:17
…even God, who gives life to the dead, and CALLS THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT AS THOUGH THEY WERE.
+The FAITH of God (the God’s kind of FAITH) calls the things that are not as though they were.
+In Genesis 1:3 God said, Let there be light, AND THERE WAS LIGHT.
+God called the thing (light) that was not as though it were, and light came about.
+So apparently there was no light on earth at that time, and God said “Let there be light” and there was light.
2 Corinthians 4:13
We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak.
+As we pursue goals we must speak them into existence.


Matthew 17:20
Jesus said:
…for verily I say unto you, If you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say unto this mountain, Remove from here to yonder place; and it shall remove; and NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE UNTO YOU.
+In others words Jesus is saying FAITH in God makes all things POSSIBLE.
+Remember Hebrews 11:6
But without FAITH it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God…
+There is nothing too difficult for the Lord. When we put our FAITH in Him and Keep our FAITH in Him we will experience unlimited possibilities. Hallelujahs to Jesus!!!


Matthew 7:24-25
24 Therefore whosoever HEARS these sayings of mine, and DOES them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built his house upon a rock:
25 And the RAIN descended, and the FLOODS came, and the WINDS blew, and beat upon that house; and IT FELL NOT: for it was founded upon a rock.
+Every person of Faith HEARS the Word of God and Do what the Word of God says to do.
+The RAIN, FLOODS and WINDS represent the negative elements and people that come against us when we walk by FAITH and do the Word of God.
+But as long as we KEEP our FAITH in the Word of God while we are doing what the Word of God says to do we will never FALL or FAIL. Praise the Lord!!!
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus Loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust, and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

As Acts 17:28 says,
For in Him (Christ Jesus) we Live, and Move, and have our Being.
+Our Being is the new person we are in Him, and the new life we Living in Him)…
+If we are not in Christ Jesus we cannot live the Life of God.
Galatians 2:20
…Christ lives in us…
+All that come from us in Words, Thoughts and Deeds should be Christ in us and nothing of our own (or old) self: the person we were before Christ came into our lives.
+Some may say “Well how about my personal desires. Don’t I count?”
+Think on this: “Lord give me NOT the desires of my heart, but instead give me the Desires of Your Heart”


+Jesus prayed a Wonderful prayer to the Father in John Ch-17, and in verse 11 He said:
…Holy Father, keep through Your Own Name those Whom You have given Me, that they may be ONE, as We ARE.
+Living the Life of God requires for us to be ONE with God the Father through God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
+How are we ONE with God?
+We ONE with God in Spirit (His Holy Spirit is in our hearts).
+We are ONE with God in Mind (we have the Mind of Christ which is the Mind of God).
+We are ONE with God in Body, (the Body of Christ).
+Remember the best way to love God is to love Him with all of our hearts, souls, minds and strength, and to love one another like Christ lives us.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for our lives.
•Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED we are and BLESSED we will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!!!

BE RIGHTEOUS

Do you think,that you are righteous ?
Isaiah 64:6-9.
But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away. And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities. But now, O Lord , thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. Be not wroth very sore, O Lord , neither remember iniquity for ever: behold, see, we beseech thee, we are all thy people.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. 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”. (Romans 12:1‭-‬3 KJV)


“See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord, giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, submitting to one another in the fear of God”.(Ephesians 5:15-21)

DO YOU THINK THAT WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS?

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men , as theirs also was. But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them ; and that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works”.(2 Timothy 3:1‭-‬17 KJV).

YOUR THOUGHTS

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD . For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: so shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it”.(Isaiah 55:8‭-‬11 KJV).

The Direction Of Our Thoughts (Think On These Things)

The superiority of our thoughts is impressive. Our thoughts are to our lives what a control tower is to a pilot as he/she flies a plane; guiding and directing our character, our conduct and our conversations. Proverbs 23:7 states, “For as a man calculates the cost of himself, this is what he does: He tells you, “eat and drink,” but he does not mean it. Therefore, if we want to change the direction of our lives we need to change our thoughts to harmonize our direction.

The “great news is that what we think about is ours choice.!” We can choose to “think” noble thoughts or salacious thoughts. It is our choice. It is a choice we need to make circumspectly because the rest of our lives as God’s masterpiece, will be influenced by our thoughts. Successful living is birthed in successful thinking; living in hope comes from hopeful thinking and the list goes on.

Our behavior is a result of our pattern of thinking to change our behavior or to change our direction, simply begins by changing our thinking pattern. Change our thoughts and we change our direction. The Bible tells us this, “be transform by the renewing of our minds.”:
Therefore, We need to:
Realize we have the mind of Christ;
Resolve to think positive or right thoughts;
Refuse to think about some things and; Replace our thoughts with God’s thoughts.

God has given us free will, including the ability to influence the direction and the tone of our thoughts. And, here’s how God wants us to direct those thoughts: “Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable–if there is any moral excellence and if there is any praise—dwell on those things.” (Philippians 4:8)
The quality of our attitude well help determine the quality of our lives so we must guard our thoughts accordingly. If we make up our mind to approach life with a healthy mixture of realism and optimism, we will be rewarded. But, if we allow ourselves to fall into the unfortunate habit of negative thinking, we will doom ourselves to unhappiness, or mediocrity or worse. So, the next time we find ourselves dwelling upon the negative aspects of our lives, we should refocus our attention on things positive. That is the wise way to direct
our thoughts.

I, became aware of one very important concept I had missed before: MY ATTITUDE–
not my CIRCUMSTANCES—was what was making me unhappy. (Vionette Bright)

BENEFITS OF THE RIGHTEOUS

“The righteous will flourish like a palm tree.”

Psalm 92:12, NIV

The reason God said we’d flourish like a palm tree is that God knew we would go through difficult times. What’s interesting about the palm tree is that when it is bent over by the strong winds during a hurricane, research shows that the extreme stretching is strengthening the root system and giving it new opportunities for growth. After the storm, when the palm tree straightens back up, it’s actually stronger than it was before.

That’s what God does for us when go through difficult times. When you come out of the storm that was meant to defeat you, when you straighten back up, you’re not going to be the same. You’re going to be stronger, healthier, wiser, better off, and ready for new growth. God never brings you out the same. He makes the enemy pay for bringing the times of darkness and trouble. Your roots are going to be stronger. You’re not only going to still be standing; you’re going to be standing stronger.

That’s Freedom In Christ
As Galatians 5:1 NKJV tells us to;
Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
+In Christ Jesus we are totally free in spirit, soul, mind and body, past, present and future.
+In Christ Jesus we are free from the world and the devil. There is absolutely nothing in this world that should keep us down.
+You may have gotten knock down with sickness, disease, financial hardship or bad relationships but you don’t have to stay down.
+I command you in The Name of Jesus! Get up! and stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free. For who the the Son set free is free indeed.
+For it is God who supplies all of our needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Hallelujahs to Jesus!!!
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
