UTILIZING THE GREAT WEAPON
We know that FAITH is a very powerful weapon of believers and the Bible puts it clearly as “But without faith it is impossible to please him:” Heb 11: 6
FAITH is so important that if only we can have it all things will be possible – Mark 9:23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
Your FAITH can move mountains, dry the sea and bring water out of the rock.
To a man of FAITH there is no limitation, hindrances or impossibility –
Mar 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Knowledge Is The Foundation Of FAITH.
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
There must be the knowledge of God, His abilities and capabilities and there must be knowledge of self and the position we occupy in Christ.
With that at the back of our mind, we must have the knowledge about the two superpowers that are controlling everything we see.
Nothing happens for nothing. In the reality, there is no accident.
Since we have been reading the Bible, we have known some of the stories of the Bible and we then can see the hand of God in many things.
God and Satan are controlling this world and the facts remain the same whether you believe it or not.
The great weapon therefore is the knowledge that this world and everything we see, hear, or feel are being controlled by God or Satan.
When this knowledge is utilized, then a terrific propelled FAITH is released and the incredible starts to happen.
Let Us Consider Some Cases
2Ch 20:22 And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah; and they were smitten. 23 For the children of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of mount Seir, utterly to slay and destroy them: and when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, every one helped to destroy another. 24 And when Judah came toward the watch tower in the wilderness, they looked unto the multitude, and, behold, they were dead bodies fallen to the earth, and none escaped.
1Sa 23:26 And Saul went on this side of the mountain, and David and his men on that side of the mountain: and David made haste to get away for fear of Saul; for Saul and his men compassed David and his men round about to take them. 27 But there came a messenger unto Saul, saying, Haste thee, and come; for the Philistines have invaded the land.
We can go on and on if you read the news on the electronics and print media, you will see and hear things that are difficult to understand or explain.
We Must Understand These Things
UTILIZING THE POWER
When you are equipped with this knowledge, you will then know how to pray and what to expect in prayer.
This is the level God is leading us to and Jesus came to show it to us.
Joh 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
Joh 16:23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. 24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
Mar 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
James 5:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
1 John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
Remember that JESUS HAS OVERRULING POWER.
