First the matters at hand. I would greatly appriaciate, pray that this community grow in #. That would help more than most people know. So invite a lot of people. Our job is to spread the good news. So lets spread it, and grow in faith.|
Now on the lesson subject more about faith. A friend came to me today, a close one. And said i think my dad is demonicly possesed. And i said now what makes you think that. She gave me reasons. I fully agreed, only cause God had shown me before he was. And she was like, can i use my faith to get rid of it. Or take authority over it. This is a quick matter i will post on. Through jesus christ, we have authority over all the spiritual realm. The bible says to this mountian be cast into the sea, and what you say will be given to you. (So say demon come out, and it will be given to you.) The other part of that scripture says as long as you do not doubt in your heart that you will get what you SAY. So it means we are to verbally claim victory over our lives, and "mountains". A wise counsel of mine, was suffering from financial trouble. He followed the Lord with all his heart, but could not get ahead at finances. Finally god spoke to him, and said, i cant do anything unless you take control. You are allowing yourself to be poor. See jesus was beat and torn apart, and it says by his stripes i have been healed. That is past tense, meaning that we are already healed, and all we have to do is accept it and have faith. We walk by faith not by sight, you may feel sick, but by his stripes you were healed. Dont go by how you feel, go by scripture. Jesus was chained up, So that we may be free. Jesus became poor on that cross, so we could prosper. In the old testament God said whoever hangeth from a tree, shall be cursed. Jesus was hung on a tree, and cursed so we are blessed. All we have to do is just believe it. By faith. After you accept whatever it is and claim victory in jesus name, praise cause God is your father in heaven and you KNOW you will recieve it. There is a parable, where the master gives his 3 slaves money. And the first slave he gives 10, the second 5, and the third 1. (not sure if this is right, but its to get the point across). The first guy came back later and said you gave me 10 i have 20 to give back. The second guy had 10 to give back. And the third Said to him, I know you are a strict master, so i did not spend your money, i burried it, now i give you your one back. And he says you wicked man. Now the reason i used this parable is cause it is a lot like our faith. God gives us faith at the beggining. We excercise that faith through time. Not many people i know the first day they were saved did they go heal the blind. But after a while they can heal hearts, or headaches. Then it builds as they excersise it. But he said to the man that didnt you are a wicked man. So believe your authority in Jesus christ. Use it daily to help you. You dont have to suffer and be trash, cause God made jesus everything we dont have to be.
If you have questions on the lesson. Leave a comment i would be amazingly glad to explain any of it. Or if you need help post a prayer request. May you all recieve the Lords blessings today. Amen.
