18335. EVERLASTING FATHER, WE THANK YOU FOR THIS NEW AND CROSSOVER WEEK. THANK YOU DAILY LOADS OF BENEFITS. BE THOU GLORIFIED IN OUR LIVES O LORD IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME.
18336. IN THE SCHOOL OF FAITH, THERE’S ALWAYS AN INTERREGNUM OF PATIENCE (JAMES 1:3-4) “Knowing this, that the TRYING OF YOUR FAITH WORKETH PATIENCE. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, WANTING NOTHING”
THAT BREAK MAY BE SHORT OR LONG, DEPENDING THE DEPTH OF YOUR CONVICTION AND CONFIDENCE.
THAT BREAK IS WHAT I CALLED: THE TEST OF FAITH
THE ONLY REASON WHY TESTS AND EXAMS ARE ADMINISTERED BY LECTURERS IS TO ASCERTAIN IF THE STUDENT TRULY UNDERSTOOD WHAT WAS TAUGHT.
FAITH NEEDS TWO INGREDIENTS TO MANIFEST.
1. YOUR HEART (CONVICTION)
2. YOUR MOUTH 👄 (CONFESSION)
8. But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in THY MOUTH, and in THY HEART: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
9. That if thou shalt CONFESS WITH THY MOUTH the Lord Jesus, and shalt BELIEVE IN THINE HEART that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10. For WITH THE HEART MAN BELIEVETH unto righteousness; and WITH THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE unto salvation.
11. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
EVERYBODY CAN HEAR THE CONFESSIONS AND DECLARATIONS OF YOUR MOUTH 👄, BUT NOBODY CAN SEE OR KNOW WHAT IS IN YOUR HEART, WHETHER YOU BELIEVE WHAT YOU’RE SAYING OR IT’S JUST EMPTY WORDS.
THIS IS THE REASON WHY YOUR FAITH WILL BE TESTED “…THE TRYING OF YOUR FAITH…” (JAMES 1:3)
AFTER EVERY EXAM, YOU WAIT FOR THE RESULTS. DURING THAT WAITING PERIOD, YOUR CONVICTION WILL GIVE YOU CONFIDENCE OF FAITH.
THAT WAITING PERIOD IS YOUR PATIENT INTERREGNUM. MANY CHRISTIANS FAIL IN THE SCHOOL OF FAITH BECAUSE THEY DON’T BELIEVE IN THE PERIOD OF PATIENCE. THEY ARE WHAT I CALLED: “NAME IT, AND CLAIM IT, CHRISTIANS”. THEY ARE MIRACLE SEEKERS.
DON’T MISUNDERSTAND ME. THERE’S NOTHING WRONG WITH PRAYING FOR MIRACLES, BUT THERE’S EVERYTHING WRONG WITH YOU IF YOU’RE NOT SEEKING THE MIRACLE GIVER. IF YOU DON’T CARE WHO GIVES THE MIRACLES. IT’S JUST THE MIRACLES YOU WANT. YOU DON’T LOVE, AND YOU’RE NOT INTERESTED IN WHO HE IS.
18337. THEY ARE MIRACLE SEEKERS, PRAYER COLLECTORS. THEY GO FROM CHURCH TO CHURCH, MINISTRY TO MINISTRY, PASTOR TO PASTOR, PROPHET TO PROPHET, APOSTLE TO APOSTLE, SEEKING FOR WHAT IS NOT LOST.
THEY HAVE NO FAITH IN THE WORD OF GOD. THEY ARE LOOKING FOR MEN OF FLESH TO PUT THEIR FAITH IN. THEIR FAITH IS NOT IN GOD OR IN HIS WORD.
GOD WARNED US THAT FAITH COMETH MY HEARING, AND HEARING BY HIS WORD.
MAY GOD BLESS ALL SHEPHERDS AND TEACHERS WHO SPEAK AND GIVE VOICE TO GOD’S WORDS. OUR VOICE IS USELESS UNLESS THE HEARER HEARS THE VOICE OF GOD! FAITH DOES NOT COME BY HEARING YOUR PASTOR’S VOICE, BUT BY HEARING GOD’S VOICE FROM HIS WORD!
THE REASON FOR OUR IMPATIENCE IS BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT HEARD HIS VOICE. WE MAY BE HEARING VOICES OF OUR BRETHREN, SIBLINGS, RELATIVES, FRIENDS, ASSOCIATES, PASTORS, PROPHETS, BUT IF WE DON’T HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD WE WILL GO ASTRAY AND BE DROPOUTS IN THE SCHOOL OF FAITH.
… THANK YOU HOLY SPIRIT… “I HEAR THE HOLY SPIRIT SPEAKING SAYING: SHOLA, WHERE ARE YOU”
THAT’S STRANGE BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW WHOM THE HOLY GHOST IS CALLING. I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE DONE OR NOT DONE. BUT THERE’S A LONGING IN THE HEART OF GOD AND CALLING OUT TO YOU. I DON’T KNOW OF YOU’RE FEMALE OR MALE. I PRAY YOU WILL HEAR HIS VOICE TODAY AND NOT HARDEN YOUR HEART.
HEBREWS 3:7-11 (NLT): That is why the Holy Spirit says,
“Today when you hear his voice, don’t harden your hearts as Israel did when they rebelled, when they tested me in the wilderness. There your ancestors tested and tried my patience, even though they saw my miracles for forty years. So I was angry with them, and I said, ‘Their hearts always turn away from me. They refuse to do what I tell them.’ So in my anger, I took an oath: ‘They will never enter my place of rest.”
