faith is living

What is coming? What's on the way is a faith revival for the church. We will have faith for the totally completely impossible. People say, "I have all the faith in the world". Not true you only need as much as a grain of a mustard seed if it is Gods faith. Our faith is not a thought or an idea. It is living, it is a life, it is Jesus. When the 10 men with leprosy were healed, only one of them when he realized he was healed came to show his gratefulness. His faith in Jesus made him totally whole. In the storms of life, we cant mentally make things happen. Our faith must be living, settled completely in Jesus Christ. In Jesus hometown, he didnt do many miracles because they could not have faith in him as the Messiah. With the woman with the issue of blood, did she believe his robe to  heal her or Jesus? She had faith in Jesus. These people who were healed or raised up from the dead, did not have any confidence in their ability to believe. Their confidence was in Jesus. They have a living faith in them.

Luke 17:6 And the Lord answered, If you had faith (trust and confidence in God) even [so small] like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, Be pulled up by the roots, and be planted in the sea, and it would obey you.  AMP


Luke 17:6  But the Master said, "You don't need more faith. There is no 'more' or 'less' in faith. If you have a bare kernel of faith, say the size of a poppy seed, you could say to this sycamore tree, 'Go jump in the lake,' and it would do it.  MSG

 Matt 17:20 He said to them, Because of the littleness of your faith [that is, your lack of firmly relying trust]. For truly I say to you, if you have faith [that is living] like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move from here to yonder place, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you. AMP


MATT 17:20 He told them, It was because of your lack of faith. I promise you, if you have faith inside of you no bigger than the size of a small mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, Move away from here and go over there, and you will see it move! There is nothing you couldnt do![ TPT

Rom 1:17. Herein lies the secret of the power of the gospel; there is no good news in it until the righteousness of God is revealed! The dynamic of the gospel is the revelation of Gods faith as the only valid basis for our belief. The prophets who wrote in advance about the fact that God believes that righteousness reveals the life of our design. Righteousness by his faith defines life. Mirror


ROM 1:17 This gospel unveils a continual revelation of Gods righteousnessa perfect righteousness given to us when we believe. And it moves us from receiving life through faith, to the power of living by faith. This is what the Scripture means when it says: We are right with God through life-giving faith"   TPT

HEB 12:2-3 We look away from the natural realm and we focus our attention and expectationonto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faiths perfection. His example is this: Because his heart was focused on the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!

So consider carefully how Jesus faced such intense opposition from sinners who opposed their own souls, so that you wont become worn down and cave in under lifes pressures.   TPT

54 When Jesus arrived in his hometown of Nazareth, he began teaching the people in the synagogue. Everyone was dazed, overwhelmed with astonishmentover the depth of revelation they were hearing. They said to one another, Where did this man get such great wisdom and miraculous powers?

55 Isnt he just the craftsmans son? Isnt his mother named Mary, and his four brothers Jacob, Joseph, Simon, and Judah?

56 And dont his sisters all live here in Nazareth? From where then did he get all this revelation and power?

57 And the people became offended and began to turn against him.

Mark 5:35-43 While he was still talking, some people came from the leader's house and told him, "Your daughter is dead. Why bother the Teacher any more?"

36 Jesus overheard what they were talking about and said to the leader, "Don't listen to them; just trust me."

37 He permitted no one to go in with him except Peter, James, and John.

38 They entered the leader's house and pushed their way through the gossips looking for a story and neighbors bringing in casseroles.

39 Jesus was abrupt: "Why all this busybody grief and gossip? This child isn't dead; she's sleeping."

40 Provoked to sarcasm, they told him he didn't know what he was talking about. But when he had sent them all out, he took the child's father and mother, along with his companions, and entered the child's room.

41 He clasped the girl's hand and said, "Talitha koum," which means, "Little girl, get up."

42 At that, she was up and walking around! This girl was twelve years of age. They, of course, were all beside themselves with joy.

43 He gave them strict orders that no one was to know what had taken place in that room. Then he said, "Give her something to eat."  MSG

Matt 15:26 He said, "It's not right to take bread out of children's mouths and throw it to dogs."

27 She was quick: "You're right, Master, but beggar dogs do get scraps from the master's table."

28 Jesus gave in. "Oh, woman, your faith is something else. What you want is what you get!" Right then her daughter became well. MSG


MATT 15:26-28 Jesus responded, Its not right for a man to take bread from his children and throw it out to the dogs. 

27 Youre right, Lord, she replied. But even puppies get to eat the crumbs that fall from the princes table.

28 Then Jesus answered her, Dear woman, your faith is strong! What you desire will be done for you. And at that very moment, her daughter was instantly set free from demonic torment.TPT

3. This light of the ages, invites them to engage in the inexhaustible adventure of knowing you, the only true God and Jesus as the Christ whom you have commissioned!

4 I have caused your dignity and worth to be made renowned and rendered illustrious in order to become manifest and acknowledged throughout the earth by accomplishing the work which you have given me to do.

Gal 2:20  My old identity has been co-crucified with Messiah and no longer lives; for the nails of his cross crucified me with him. And now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed One lives his life through mewe live in union as one! My new life is empowered by the faith of the Son of God who loves me so much that he gave himself for me, and dispenses his life into mine! TPT

Rom 3:3-4. The question is, how does someones failure to believe God affect what God believes? Can their unbelief cancel Gods faith?

4 Gods word is not under threat! In fact if all mankind fails, truth remains intact. Truth is defined in God; its neither challenged nor vindicated by human experience. Contradiction does not intimidate or diminish the faith of God. Scripture records that God stands justified in his own word; it confirms that Gods promise and purpose are not compromised by mankinds failure; neither is Gods reputation threatened by our behavior. Mirror


Rom 3:3 So, what if, in the course of doing that, some of those Jews abandoned their post? God didn't abandon them. Do you think their faithlessness cancels out his faithfulness?

Rejection doesn't faze you. MSG

Rom 4:13-14. Righteousness by faith and not righteousness by the law promoted the promise when God announce to Abraham that he would father those who would inherit the world. It is again a matter of embracing a gift rather than receiving a reward for keeping the law.

14 Faith would be emptied of its substance and the principal of promise would be meaningless if the law of personal performance was still in play to qualify the heirs. Mirror
