Faith Cometh

So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 KJV

Hear the Word preached in church this Sunday. Wellspring Church of All Nations is a faith building church.

Every true believer should want to be where God is honored, Jesus is worshiped, the Holy Spirit moves, the Bible is the absolute authority, and faith is built through its preaching.

That being true, and it is, why would anyone not want to be in church every time the doors are open and want more.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:33 KJV

What are you seeking first?

Only you can answer that.

What you seek first you will find.

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:   For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Matthew 7:7‭-‬8 KJV


Confidence


For thus saith the Lord God , the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.
Isaiah 30:15 KJV

Don’t cast away your fearless confidence.

Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. Hebrews 10:35 KJV

The Amplified Bible says, “fearless confidence”. 

When we walk in covenant with the Prince of Peace, Christ Jesus, we not only walk in peace each and every day but we walk with fearless confidence. It’s a confidence that knows that God, through Christ (the anointed One and His anointing), is able to take care of, and keep us in, every situation and circumstance. 

For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. 2 Timothy 1:12 KJV


Increase


But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV

The blessing of increase is God’s covenant promise to His people.

Only a fool will forget, or refuse to acknowledge, that prosperity is a gift from God.

Walk in covenant with God and you will experience His covenant promise.


Warfare


(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 2 Corinthians 10:4 KJV

There is tremendous pressure from the atheistic communists in America to get rid of our guns. That is the major hurdle that is needed to subdue and sunjugate our society. This must be resisted by every freedom loving American.

Those who want open borders and a one world government are unknowingly being directed and controlled by the spirit of anti-Christ. Our real warfare is supernatural.

We do face physical enemies, such as the promoters of atheistic communism, but must always keep in mind that the real battle is a spiritual one. 

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12 KJV


No Fear Here

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18 KJV

The demonic spirits of violence, murder, and fear are working overtime in our land. Their hapless victims are those indoctrinated with belief in atheistic communism and anti-Christ philosophy.

Christians, real Christians, on the other hand, are fearless in the face of this onslaught. They know the source, the cause, of evil in the world and work to overcome it by being salt and light.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV

They also know that their warfare is not against people but against the forces that manipulate them.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Ephesians 6:12‭-‬13 KJV

No Fear Here!


Never Quit

Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.
Hebrews 10:35 KJV

Biblical faith has no provision for losing heart and giving up. Faith lays hold of the promises of God and tenaciously holds on like a bull dog until they possess them.

The confidence of faith receives the reward.

For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.  For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Hebrews 10:36‭-‬37 KJV

Quitters never win, and winners never quit. 

Never, Never, Never Quit!

After all, you’re a winner in Christ.


Taxes and Tithes


And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.
Mark 12:17 KJV

To tithe, that is giving 10% of any increase, is to honor our God who makes it possible.

But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.  Deuteronomy 8:18 KJV

Jesus teaches us that there are certain obligations that we have toward both God and to government. We tithe and give offerings in the house of God, and toward His kingdom work, and we pay taxes to support the government of our society.

Just as paying taxes brings certain benefits such as national defence, infrastructure like roads and bridges, so too, the tithe brings many benefits such as an open heaven, poured out blessings, the devourer rebuked, and

Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.  And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.  And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the Lord of hosts. Malachi 3:10‭-‬12 KJV

Think about it the next time you’re tempted to skip the tithe.
