True faith comes from God, therefore it is empowered by the Words of God as YOU speak them in confession before God. As we learned earlier the Evidence we see in creation about God is ONLY REVEALED through the Faith that God gives you at the New Birth, it contains within it the PROVING of the evidence you now do not see.
Beneath the SEEN WORLD is an UNSEEN WORLD where the the physical realm’s evidences are proven by the spiritual realm to be real, all of science is the outward evidence of the spiritual truth that PROVES it true, no theory of Man that cannot be proven by its counterpart in God’s realm is true.
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. “
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.“
Always remember that there are TWO kinds of faith, one faith is natural every day belief in what we do, sitting in a chair, walking down the street, natural faith is an assumption that what is will be, BUT God’s pure Faith goes one step further, his faith presents absolute proof OF WHAT HE ASKS YOU TO DO.
Real faith, present tense (Now) faith from God provides proof that the evidences we do see in the physical realm are real and will come forth as promised. God never says what his faith cannot produce therefore his promises in Christ are YES and Amen!
God’s faith just like natural faith REQUIRES an action to produce results, no matter how much faith we think we have, if we NEVER ACT UPON his instructions then no results will happen, like planting a garden, if you keep the seed in your pocket and never put it in the ground it cannot grow!
“And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;..”
The Church has FAILED miserably before the world, we act like other men who copied other men instead of being HIS written word in our hearts, revealing the proof of God in the world!
“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.”
Gods Faith doesn’t work UNDER WAVERING, DOUBTFUL CONDITIONS, just think about this for a second, if you had kids that WAVERED and DOUBTED every thing you told them. Would your words mean anything to them? Would your presence matter to them?
“Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me. “
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. “
Because we are dealing with not just a part of God but with God himself being planted in our recreated Human spirit, Faith is more than a belief but the result of belief, the proof, the evidence of Hopes and dreams, the very thing that holds every ATOM in the universe together resides in your heart waiting for you to act upon what God says.
This does not seem to be dealing with Apologetic issues but I assure you that these teachings are the very foundation of every thing we believe.
