SCRIPTURE REFERENCE: 1 JOHN 5:4
For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
Shalom family, our year of Reaping and Reward (RR) has started off very well. The attendance for all the services was super, and all the overflows were full in the second and third services. Over 12 people who were wheelchair bound were set free and they were able to walk again. We had many people testifying about healing and cancellation of debts, we give God all the glory!!! We thank the God of our father – Pastor Alph Lukau, he is the faithful God.
Referring to the above scripture, our Man of God (Pastor Alph) said, let those who gossip you continue to gossip you. Victory is your birth right because you are born of God. You are about to experience the victory of God. If you understand the power of the Word of God, you will be literally unshakable. Let the reference of who you are come from the Word. Sometimes when you look at the situation around you, you get afraid; God has set you up as an eagle. An eagle does not mind to be insulted. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith, meaning that this victory that those of us have, is the substance that causes us to win, it is called FAITH. A man of faith can never be defeated.
If you can believe, you will win. The greatest secret is not the size of your bible, but it’s your faith. That is why nothing shakes the devil like faith, what the devil is after, is your faith. He knows that when he takes things away from you, you will lose your faith. He took everything from Job, but he failed to take his faith. When Job was restored, he got double for his trouble.
Your outlook or dress code means nothing. It’s your faith that makes the difference. If you have faith, even though the enemy can come with his army, you will not be shaken. If the devil cannot succeed in breaking your faith, he cannot succeed in breaking your life. The following things give you faith.
1. The measure of faith is given to every believer.
2. You move to the next level through hearing (faith comes by hearing, and hearing the word of God).
3. A gift or something that does not come from you, but it’s given to you. It’s a supernatural gift. Just like the gift of tongue, it comes naturally.
James 2:18 – If you have to win standing on faith, you have to know this. If you have to be a man of faith, you have to have faith. Where there is faith, there must be works. A faithful person is not faithful because he says I am faithful, because when everybody turns their back on him, he remains standing. Love cannot be seen, it cannot be seen unless there is proof of love. Invisible love is not love at all. God loved us, so he gave us. Somebody who loves, gives. Where there is love, we see through works.
The bible says, “little children, do not love with your tongue only,” meaning that we should love with actions. The faith without works is dead. If somebody shows his faith, I want to see his life. Faith is evidence, for example, your car, house, etc, and serving God may be the exercise of faith.
The story of faith of Hannah was Samuel. What is the name of the story of your faith? Obedience to the Word of God is in simple things, if you cannot win souls, or fulfil little assignments of God, your faith is dead.
Evidence of faith is seen in the following actions:
1.The first evidence of faith is obedience to the Word of God. When you have that faith you do the impossible. People of faith are men of action.
2.Faith is seen through works: A man’s dignity is in his work. If you are a man of faith, you will fulfil something.
3.Hope: You do not lose hope when you have faith; you remain steady till the end. People of faith do not quit. Those who quit it’s because their faith is faulty. If you have faith, you will always overcome the world. Lastly, have expectation through your faith and you will overcome the world.
