The Law of Faith

Romans 3:27
Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the law of faith.

Faith is a spiritual law. The reference in the above verse to the word “law” means that which is established. For example there is the law of lift, which was established by God and has always been in existence here on earth. Man did not invent it, so he cannot take credit for the law of lift. God created this law. Once man began to understand this law and how it works, he was able to make use of this law to our advantage.

To try and explain this law in simple terms, when an “airfoil” (wing of a plane) goes through the “air” it redirects and “forces” the air to follow a path that goes downward. This change in direction causes a downward force applied to the air. This results in the air causing an upward force on the airfoil (wing), and that creates lift. It works whenever these elements are applied. So it is with faith. Faith is a spiritual law and therefore it always works. It is not something we take credit for because we did not create it, God did. Our part, like the law of lift, is to figure out what it takes to see this law work.

Faith has three elements that when combined works, just like the air, airfoil, and the force created causes lift. Faith believes in the heart, not the head, faith speaks in line with that belief, and then faith acts upon that belief. When applied faith always works, for it is a spiritual law. We never boast about faith, because we did not create the law of faith, God did. Our part is to believe in the heart, which comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God; to speak in line with that belief, and then to act upon what we are fully convinced of in our heart, turning our faith loose. When we do, just like the law of lift, we will see faith work.

God Never Changes

Malachi 3:6
“For I am the LORD, I do not change;…”

In this day in which we live we have certainly seen things change very quickly in our world today. I have seen things happen I never thought I would see in my lifetime. In the midst of this ever changing world, there is one thing we can secure ourselves to that never changes, our God. Here in Malachi God stated the fact that He does not change. In Hebrews 13:8 we are told Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Let me share a couple of powerful truths about our never changing God.

First of all because God never changes we don’t have to keep buying a new and different Bible to try and figure out how God does things. All we have to do is go to His Word, learn of God and His ways, and adapt our life to Him, and see our lives change for the better. Many times people say certain things that happen are from God or are His doing, but once you get in the Word and learn of Him you can know what is of God and what is not of God. Many are deceived because they have not come to know Him through His Word.

Another powerful truth about our unchanging God as stated in 2 Corinthians 1:20 is that every promise He has provided in Christ is available to us. Some still do not know that all the promises of God are for everyone, to which we are to exercise our faith to receive. We simply have to believe in what Jesus has already done for us. He does not change His mind about any of His promises. So in this ever changing world choose to look too and walk with our unchanging God, who never changes. You will be glad you did.

Every born again believer has the ability to hear the voice of their Shepherd. When we know what the Lord is directing us to do and we do it, we will always succeed in life. Find out more in this very important teaching.

Doing What Jesus Did

John 14:13-14
13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.

In the verse right before this Jesus had declared that those who believe in Him could do what He Himself had done. In these above two verses many think this is referring to making a request to God, but in fact that is not what these verses actually say. The word “ask” here in the original Greek language means to make a demand. In John 16:23-24 Jesus teaches us about asking the Father in prayer for answers we need. Here in John 14, He is revealing how we can do what Jesus did.

We are not making a demand of Jesus nor the Father for anything, as these scriptures do not say anything about directing this demand to them. When you look at Jesus’ example of what He did, He never prayed to the Father when dealing with the works of satan. Jesus simply used His authority and demanded change. He demanded sickness and disease to go. He demanded demons to leave. When it comes to dealing with the works of satan you don’t pray to the Father, you use your God-given authority and demand it to go.

We do this by using the name of Jesus. Notice Jesus said whatever you ask (demand) in my name, I will do it. When you use the name of Jesus and demand the works of our enemy to go, it’s the same as if Jesus is right there Himself, and therefore it will be done. What God has already done for us through Christ we don’t ask Him to do. We go and enforce His victory by demanding the works of satan to go in Jesus name, for His name is above every name.

Not My Will

Matthew 16:25
for whoever is desiring to save his soul-life shall ruin it, but whoever will pass a sentence of death upon his soul-life for my sake, shall find it.

What is this soul-life Jesus is referring to here. The soul-life is referring to being governed by our own reasoning apart from what God has said about us, and therefore choosing our own will instead of the Father’s will. The Father’s will as Jesus proved will always bring us up into a higher life. Jesus is a perfect example of this.

Remember when Jesus was in the garden of Gethsemane dealing with His soul-life over what His spirit man already knew what He was to do. Jesus many times had talked about laying down His life for us, knowing He would be raised up from the dead three days later. So, Jesus gave up His will (soul-life) to follow His spirit man in fulfilling God’s will. The result was victory over death, hell, and the grave, and being raised up, seated next to the Father.

The very moment we are born again we are now as a new creation seated with Him, because we are one spirit with the Lord. Like Jesus we must die to live. Die to your soul-life by choosing to accept and declare over you who God says you are, what God says you have, and what God says you can do. It will lift you up into this “higher life” where you are already seated in victory.

I Will Give You Shepherds

Jeremiah 3:15
“Then I will give you shepherds who trust and know Me, wise teachers who will impart knowledge and understanding to you.”

Here in Jeremiah, we see a prophecy revealing what Jesus according to Ephesians 4:11 would provide for us in fulfillment of this prophecy, giving us shepherds gifted by Him to feed us with knowledge and understanding of God’s Word. As a believer we need to know we have found the shepherd He has anointed to help us. What are some of the signs we are connected to the right shepherd? Good question.

A shepherd who is gifted by God to feed His flock will be someone who not only knows God and walks with Him, but they will impart this knowledge and understanding to you, what they have learned and lived. In Titus 2:1, a letter written to Titus who was a pastor, Titus is told to speak the things which are proper for “sound doctrine”. Your pastor should teach sound doctrine. He should only teach the Word of God, not his personal opinion or man’s philosophy.

Your pastor should be just like you, submitted to godly leadership, for this is a protection for him, and for the congregation he oversees. Hebrews 13:17 is very clear on this point, as such leaders watch out for your soul. Finally, Jesus in John 10:1-9 reveals the shepherd who came from Him will be someone when speaking that you will know his voice, you will have confirmation in your heart this is your shepherd given to feed you. Shepherds who are called by God are a gift to us, to help us walk with God.

Don’t Fall Asleep

1 Thessalonians 5:6, 8
6 Therefore, we must not fall asleep like other people, but we must stay awake and be sober.
8 Since we belong to the day, we must be sober. We must put on faith and love as a breastplate and the hope of salvation as a helmet.

Here in 1 Thessalonians 5, Paul is warning believers not to fall asleep as some do. To fall asleep refers to losing sight of who you are in Christ and falling prey to the deceptive lies of satan who wants to keep you from your full potential as a born-again child of God. One who stays awake continues to walk in the light of who God made them to be.

In verse eight he reveals three things you must put on and keep on to stay awake, living aware of the new man within. The first of these three is faith as a breastplate. Simply put, faith is trusting in God, not yourself. Faith is what made us right with God. Faith is maintained by hearing what God’s Word has to say about you. Next, he refers to love as a breastplate as well. Never fall for the lie God does not love you. His love is unconditional, never earned just received. Accept His love and choose to yield to and walk in that love every day.

You also need to maintain the hope of your salvation, which means to never lose sight of the Lord’s return. Hope is an expectation of good to come. The hope of our salvation is in knowing what lies ahead for us when Jesus returns. This hope will help you to keep your focus on our Savior, who will return for His church. Maintain these three key areas for your life and they will help you to stay awake, fully aware of who you are, what you have, and what you can do.

Titus 3:4-5
4 But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared,
5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, . . .

Regeneration – To cause to be spiritually born anew, to give new life and strength, to make a radical change for the better.

When you become born again you experience what scripture calls “regeneration”. You spirit is born again and made new. Notice the definition of regeneration above. You receive new life and strength, and you have received a radical change for the better. Your spirit is now united with God Himself. You now have as scripture teaches the kingdom of God within your spirit man. That means the dominion of King Jesus is now residing in you.

The dominion of the King can now be released in and through your life. The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. You have righteousness (right standing with God), which gives you the right to use God’s dominion, His authority. You can experience an inner peace that passes all understanding in the natural. You can also experience the joy of the Lord that brings supernatural strength.

You can experience all this no matter what you may face in life. The key to releasing the dominion of the King is to be ruled by your spirit man within. You must stop being ruled by your soulish nature and allow your spirit man to dominate. A key is to do what Romans teaches. Set your mind on the things of the spirit, looking to God’s Word so you can now see life through God’s Word, and walk in this new radical change of life for the better.
