Mountain Moving Faith
Faith is a word we have heard so often and also a word we have undoubtedly used. However faith is much more than a word that is part of our Christian vocabulary.
This ebook has been written not to be a definite authority concerning faith but rather to highlight some of the truths concerning faith and to remind you of the principles by which your faith operates. This is important, for we learn from the Word of God that we are to walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).
Each of us was created for a purpose and destiny. God has a master plan for each of us to fulfill and walk in our purpose and destiny. It is each of our responsibly to find out what the key is to unlock the master plan of God for our lives. Faith is a key that enables us to unlock and walk in the master plan of God for lives.
For a Christian, walking by faith should be a daily adventure that brings the blessings of God, from the spiritual realm into our lives here on earth. By now, we should be experts of walking by faith, however for many; this has become a stumbling block.
It is my prayer that as you read this ebook, that the eyes of your understanding be enlightened and that God’s Word would be a lamp to your feet and a light to your path and that your stumbling blocks becomes stepping stones and that you would receive all that Jesus has made available to you, as you use your faith the way God intended you to do so.
To start off with, what is faith? Faith is a spiritual force and each of us has been given a measure of faith by God (see Romans 12:30).
In Matthew 9:29 (NIV), we read Jesus responding to the man in need of healing, ‘According to your faith let it be done to you.’
From this portion of scripture we learn that this man’s faith became the receiver for what the man hoped for, in this case his healing. Jesus met his need, at the level of his faith.
So too, with each of us, we each need to use our faith, to receive what we hope for from The Word of God. We receive from God, based on our level of faith.
Hope and faith are linked in our belief and acting on The Word of God. Hope is future tense, whilst faith is present tense.
Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) says, ‘Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not yet seen.’ Notice faith is ‘Now’, which is always present tense.
Consider understanding hope and faith in this way; hope draws an outline of a picture for what you are believing for from the Word of God and then faith adds substance to that outline of the picture that you are believing for from the Word of God.
In this context then, faith is the spiritual force that adds substance to what is being believed for from the Word of God.
God operates using faith. This is clearly illustrated to us in the very first book of the very first chapter of The Bible.
When God came to the earth, it was already dark. God did not say, let there be darkness. Darkness was already there. God spoke what He wanted to come about and spoke His Word to the situation. “And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.” God used His faith to change the situation. When God did so, the natural had to line up with the spoken Word of God. This is God’s mode of operation, which is, God calls those things that be not as if they already are.
In Genesis 1:27, we learn that we are created in the image and likeness of God. God has given to us His written Word. Can you imagine what is possible, if we deposit the written Word of God in our hearts in abundance and then speak it out from our mouths in faith believing. It will be as if God Himself has spoken it. No matter what the circumstance or situation in the natural, it will have to finally line up with faith spoken words that are from the Word of God.
We are created in the image of God and are called to imitate God (see Genesis 1:26 and Ephesians 5:1). In this context, we too should be operating by faith, calling those things that be not as if they already are (see Romans 4:17). The things that we call forth into existence into our lives must be from The Word of God.
As we use our faith to receive the promises from the Word of God, it will enable us to grow in our walk with God and in us increasing in the abundant life that Jesus came to give us.
Having now understood this, I want to share with you a few thoughts concerning faith and how it works and I believe that it would correctly bring further balance and insight to what has already been shared so far in this ebook.
A few words concerning faith
From the Word of God we learn that;
Faith pleases God
Faith is always present tense and it is faith that pleases God (see Hebrews 11:1 and Hebrews 11:6).
Faith comes by us hearing and hearing the Word of God (see Romans 10:17). This speaks of a continual hearing of the Word of God. The greater time we spend hearing the Word of God and taking it into our heart, the greater the deposit of God’s Word we will have in our hearts. There are a number of ways to hear the Word of God, some are listening to anointed preaching, listening to Christian songs which have the Word of God as its central message, reading the Word of God, reading anointed Christian books, speaking the Word of God out of our mouths.
Faith must speak God’s Word
The Word of God has to be in two places, in our hearts and in our mouths (see Romans 10:8). We release the faith that has been produced in our hearts by the Word of God by us speaking it out of our mouths. So do not say what you have but rather what you want to come about. Do not use your words to describe your circumstance and situation but rather use your words to bring change to your circumstance and situation. Always ensure that what you saying, is in line and agreement with God’s Word. Call those things that be not as if they already are (see Romans 4:17). We must be constantly speaking God’s Word out of our mouths over every circumstance and situation that we encounter.
Faith gets its power to work by us walking in Godly Love (see Galatians 5:6). Agape’ Love is the God type of love and is a love that can be defined as self-sacrifice for the benefit of the one loved. It is unconditional love and from 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, we learn that this type of God love is patient, is kind, does not envy, does not boast, is not proud, is not rude, is not self-seeking, is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs, it does not delight in evil, it rejoices in the truth, it always protects, it always trusts, it always hopes, it always perseveres, and it never fails. Faith gets its power to work, to function, by us walking in Godly love (Galatians 5:6).
Faith and forgiveness go together (see Mark 11:22-26). Faith is hindered and stopped by unforgiveness and unrighteousness. Today and always, forgive those that have wronged you and continually do, that which is right and good. If you have missed the mark by sinning, do not allow the enemy to condemn you for sinning but rather confess, repent of your sins and let the blood of Jesus cleanse you from all unrighteousness (see 1 John 1:9).
Faith’s partner is patience. Patience supports your faith as you wait for the manifestation of God’s promise (what you are believing God for, from God’s Word) [see James 1:2-4 and Hebrews 6:12].
Faith without works is dead. In Matthew 9:2 (NIV), we read, ‘When Jesus saw their faith…’ it moved Jesus to respond by ministering healing to the paralytic man. God needs to see our faith. How does God see our faith? By our actions that are consistent with what we are believing for, from the Word of God. We must always ensure that we are led by God The Holy Spirit in our actions that demonstrate our faith. Let God’s peace be your guide here (see Colossians 3:15). Should your peace be disturbed, know that something is amiss and not right.
A partial paraphrase to understand how some of the above concerning faith comes together is, faith is empowered by ‘Godly Love’, and faith that has been produced in your heart by you hearing the Word of God, needs to be released by you speaking it out of your mouth, as you in patience, expectantly wait in a Godly manner, with Spirit led actions, for the manifestation of the promises from God, that you are believing for in your life.
From the Word of God, we learn that we are to walk by faith and not by sight (see 2 Corinthians 5:7). One insightful glimpse into this scripture is that, we are not to believe and act on our past experiences of failure and defeat but we are to move forward in faith based on the Word of God. We must have a confident expectation of the fulfillment of the promises of God in our lives and our speech and Spirit led actions should be in line with this (see Hebrews 10:35).
From Ephesians 1:3 we learn that we have been blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. It is every born again Believers responsibility to use their faith to transfer these spiritual blessings from the spiritual realm to the physical realm. Today if you need healing, deliverance, favor, good breaks or anything else that is godly, then use your mountain moving faith to transfer it from the spiritual realm to yourself in the physical realm.
I would encourage you today, to daily walk by faith and that you imitate God Your Heavenly Father and that you call those things that be not, as if they already are. As you do so, you will grow in your relationship with God and your life will move to higher levels and in the things of God.
Do you know the truth?
Eternity, where are you going to spend it; in heaven or in hell? It is a serious matter. Stop and take a moment to think about where you will spend eternity.
Just like heaven is a real place, so too is hell. The Bible describes hell as a place where the fire is not quenched and where the worm does not die.
Hell is a real place that was prepared for Satan, his co-host and for those who are separated from God by sin.
The good news is, it is not God’s will that any human being spend eternity in hell. God loves you so much, that He gave the Lord Jesus Christ, that who so ever believes in Jesus, should not perish in hell but have everlasting life in heaven (John 3:16).
The reality is, the choice is yours. Whilst you are alive on earth, you decide where you will spend eternity.
God has made a way for you to be forgiven from your sins and to be no longer separated by sin from Him. The way that God has made is through His Son Jesus.
Jesus was born so that He could die on the Cross of Calvary to pay the price for the forgiveness of your sins and wrong doings. God loves you so much that God gave His very best, by giving His Son Jesus to pay the price so that you could be forgiven from your sins and wrong doings.
If you choose to accept the way that God has made for you to come to Him and to be forgiven from your sins, then please pray the Prayer for Salvation that follows.
Heavenly Father God, I come to You, through the Lord Jesus Christ and I ask You to please have mercy on me and to save me.
Dear Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and into my life. I confess that I am a sinner and that I have sinned and have done wrong. I am sorry for my sins and wrong doings and I choose to turn from them now.
Dear Lord Jesus, I confess with my mouth that you are Lord of my life and I believe with my whole heart that You died on the cross for my sins and that God raised You from the dead. I ask You, to please forgive me of all of my sins and wrong doings and to wash me in Your precious blood.
Heavenly Father, I also ask that Your Holy Spirit would give me the life of heaven that I may be born again. Please help me to live a life that is pleasing and acceptable to You.
Dear Lord Jesus, I also ask that You baptize me and fill me with God the Holy Spirit.
Thank You for answer to my prayer, for I pray and ask all of this now, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
Welcome to the family of God. I would encourage you to read and follow God’s word as found in The Holy Bible and I would also encourage you to find and attend a good church where the Word of God is taught and practiced.
The Prayer for Salvation that is contained in this ebook has been written on some of the scriptural references below.
It is my prayer that as you read these scriptures as found in The Holy Bible, that your understanding would increase and that you be drawn closer to God your Heavenly Father who loves you unconditionally.
John 3:16-17, English Standard Version
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
Romans 10:8-10, English Standard Version
But what does it say? The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
Acts 4:12, English Standard Version
And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.
Ephesians 2:8-9, English Standard Version
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Romans 5:8, English Standard Version
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Isaiah 55:6-7, English Standard Version
Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near; let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
Romans 5:1, English Standard Version
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
John 10:28-29, English Standard Version
I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.
1 John 2:2, English Standard Version
He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.
Mark 16:16, English Standard Version
Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
Acts 2:38, English Standard Version
And Peter said to them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
John 3:16-18, The Message
“This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him.
Romans 10:4-10, The Message
The earlier revelation was intended simply to get us ready for the Messiah, who then puts everything right for those who trust him to do it. Moses wrote that anyone who insists on using the law code to live right before God soon discovers it’s not so easy—every detail of life regulated by fine print! But trusting God to shape the right living in us is a different story—no precarious climb up to heaven to recruit the Messiah, no dangerous descent into hell to rescue the Messiah. So what exactly was Moses saying? The word that saves is right here, as near as the tongue in your mouth, as close as the heart in your chest. It’s the word of faith that welcomes God to go to work and set things right for us. This is the core of our preaching. Say the welcoming word to God—“Jesus is my Master”—embracing, body and soul, God’s work of doing in us what he did in raising Jesus from the dead. That’s it. You’re not “doing” anything; you’re simply calling out to God, trusting him to do it for you. That’s salvation. With your whole being you embrace God setting things right, and then you say it, right out loud: “God has set everything right between him and me!”
