REVELATION #5 – The Faith Message
22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.
23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.
Faith believes something and faith says something.
Both positive and negative words have power.
The tongue is a rudder (James 3:4)
REVELATION #6 – The Pauline Revelation
The Pauline revelation is the revelation that God gave Paul about the new covenant bringing salvation by grace through faith.
“In Him” scriptures tell us who we are, what we can do and what we have in Christ.
If you don’t understand who you are in Christ, you’re not going to understand the New Testament.
1 Corinthians 3:11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
Build on Jesus Christ alone.
REVELATION #7 – Meditate
Joshua 1:8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
To mutter, to utter, to repeat over and over. Not like in religions where the number of times you say something is what matters, but to hear the truths of the Word of God until it gets ingrained in you.
Chewing food aids in digesting and assimilating the food. Meditating on God’s Word is chewing on God’s Word to digest and assimilate it.
We have to rightly divide the Word of God. All of the Bible is a true record, but not everything in it is a true statement. For example, some of the Bible contains statements that people actually made but which are not statements of truth.
