Faith is not a feeling or a blind leap

Faith

 

Faith is based on facts obtained by walking in the light of the word of God

The Gospel is a secret and a mystery for saints to reveal to the lost for their salvation.

In the diagram above faith is on the word of God. Faith not found in the word of God is presumption.

Romans 16:25

Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,

Colossians 1:26

Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:

John 6:29

Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.

Fear is faith without love.

Faith is fear with love.

Love is faith that has passed through hope and cast off fear.

 

Faith is the Victory

Never play fair. Use a bigger weapon that brings fear to the enemy. Giving the gospel is beating the devil. He wants us to think we can do something without Jesus.

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Faith does not believe in believing. Biblical faith has its foundation in the word of God. Religion says if you can conceive it and believe it you can achieve it. That is ambition not faith. Faith is receiving something from the word of God and committing to cooperate with God in that area. This will build a relationship with the Lord.

Check your relationship with the Lord by checking on what you are building. God is most concerned with people building.
