Promises to Build Your Faith and Belief In The Word of God

Do we realize the magnitude of the work in which we are engaged? If we did, there would be more fervency in our prayers. Our entreaties would rise before God with convincing earnestness. We would plead for power as a hungry child pleads for bread. If we realized the greatness of the Gift, if we desired the attainment of the Blessing, our petitions would ascend with earnestness, importunity, urgency. It would be as if we were at the gate of heaven, soliciting entrance.

"If Christ's soldiers look faithfully to their Captain for their orderssuccess will attend their warfare against the enemy. No matter how they may be beset, in the end they will be triumphant. Their infirmities may be many, their sins great, their ignorance seemingly insurmountable; but if they realize their weakness, and look to Christ for aid, He will be their efficiency.... If they avail themselves of His power, their characters will be transformed; they will be surrounded with an atmosphere of light and holiness. Through His merits and imparted power they will be “more than conquerors.” Supernatural help will be given them, enabling them in their weakness to do the deeds of omnipotence.... HP 252.4.

"By faith they are to look calmly upon every foe, exclaiming: “We fight the good fight of faith, under the command of an omnipotent Power. Because He lives, we shall live also. Through Jesus ... we may withstand all the fiery darts of the enemy.” HP 252.5

Christ: "He pleaded with the Father for power to overcome their unbelief, to break the fetters with which Satan had enthralled them, and to conquer the destroyer" HLv 66.6.

"Never before had angels listened to such a prayer. The Father Himself would answer the petition of His Son. The heavens were opened, and upon the Saviour's head descended a dovelike form of purest light" HLv 67.1.

"Few at the Jordan except John discerned the heavenly vision. Yet the solemnity of the divine Presence rested on the assembly. Christ's upturned face was glorified as they had never before seen the face of man. From the open heavens a voice was heard: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” HLv 67.2.

Just as Christ pleaded with His Father for POWER to overcome their unbelief, so are WE to PLEAD earnestly for POWER to resist the enemy and for POWER to OVERCOME THE ENEMY!

* A cruse of oil that never runs dry when blessed by the prophet (1 Kings 17:16).

* Manna that falls from heaven for six-day sessions, but not on the seventh day (Exodus 16).

* A child born from a virgin (Matthew 1 & 2).

* The feeding of 5,000 men from the lunch of a young boy (Matthew 14).

* The raising of Lazarus four days after his death (John 11).

Faith = obedience is the key - Watch David Clayton's sermon to help increase YOUR FAITH! here: 

Many Christians today have stopped believing in miracles. They believe that God does not work in this way in our time. Prayer is like a raffle with no real expectation that God will answer. This sermon shows clearly that the only reason for the lack of God's intervention today, is a lack of faith.

Faith is believing (knowing) that God WILL do as he has already promised in the Bible!
Hebrews 11:6 "But without faith (obedience to His Words see John 15:7) it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."

"It is those who, with love for God and their fellow men, are striving to help others, that become established, strengthened, settled, in the truth." The true Christian ChS 106.4 Testimonies for the Church Volume 5, p. 393.2

How can you become settled in the TRUTH - if you don't study to KNOW what it IS? 

He Who healed the sick and cast out demons when He walked among men, is the same mighty Redeemer today. Faith comes by the Word of God. Then grasp His promise, “Him that cometh to Me I will in nowise cast out.” Cast yourself at His feet with the cry, “Lord, I believe; help Thou mine unbelief".

Only ONE MAN, the man Jesus Christ could fulfill the 300+ prophecies in the Bible about the Messiah. The Son of God come down as the first born of Heaven to become Divinity and Humanity blended together so that He could send us His own 100% human and 100% Divine quickened (1 Cor 15:45) Spirit to dwell in our mortal bodies. The Spirit of Christ quickening us, transforms us into constant agreement with the Word of God. The Son of God came to show us not what a God could do, but what a man can do when he trusts fully in the Word of God, the only begotten Son of God:

Here are 8 of those 300 prophecies:

(1) The Messiah will be born in Bethlehem. (Micah 5:2; Matthew 2:1; Luke 2:4-6)
(2) The Messiah will be a descendant of Jacob. (Numbers 24:17; Matthew 1:2)
(3) The Messiah will enter Jerusalem as a king riding on a donkey. (Zechariah 9:9; Mark 11:4-11)
(4) The Messiah will be betrayed by a friend. (Psalm 41:9; Luke 22:47,48)
(5) The Messiah's betrayal money will be used to purchase a potter's field. (Zechariah 11:13; Matthew 27:9,10)
(6) The Messiah will be spat upon and struck. (Isaiah 50:6; Matthew 26:67)
(7) The Messiah's hands and feet will be pierced. (Psalm 22:16; John 20:25-27)
(8) Soldiers will gamble for the Messiah's garments. (Psalm 22:18; Luke 23:34)

There is no way one man could have fulfilled all 8 of these prophecies unless God was making it happen. Who else controls history? Who else could give us such irrefutable proof for Christianity? 

Pray bold, daring, fearless, intrepid, brave, courageous, valiant, heroic, prayers. 

Prayer develops trust in the heart of the believer that God absolutely will perform what He has said. For the believer, all intimacy with God is born out of trust that has been developed in times of prayer. Intimacy leads to faith and audacious praying. Faith and audacious prayer produce the miraculous.

 Ask—believe—and wait in faith to receive what He has promised.
